The international break like always brought along with it lots of injuries and knocks, which means that we may have to rejig our team now. Gameweek 12 of the Premier League promises to be a thriller and will feature the big match which puts arch rivals Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger against each other.

The Manchester United manager may be struggling, but has a perfect record against his Arsenal counterpart and has never lost to him in a competitive fixture. On the other hand, Arsenal look in great shape at the moment and if Wenger wants to finish his winless streak against his opponent, this may truly be the ideal time.

Elsewhere, Chelsea and Liverpool with swashbuckling performances in the last gameweek have occupied the top two positions on the points table. 

A new gameweek means a new look at our teams and here are 5 players we believe could power your Fantasy Premier League team for this week.

#5 Roberto Firmino

Liverpool are on a roll this season and have left no stone unturned when it comes to scoring. The frontline has bamboozled oppositions and won games by outscoring the other team by huge margins. In the midst of all these things, Roberto Firmino stands tall.

The player is certainly someone we should consider at the moment since he is Klopp’s favoured choice for the forward role. Liverpool’s next fixture is against Southampton who have not been great in their past few matches. The Saints lost their last fixture to Hull City who themselves have been struggling for quite some time.

The Brazilian’s false 9 position provides him with lots of goalscoring chances and this is the key reason he should be in your team.

Next 3 fixtures: Southampton(A), Sunderland(H), Bournemouth(A)
