Another player from Arsenal who should be considered is Nacho Monreal (5.4m). The Spanish left-back is back from injury. He’s been good to Fantasy managers in the past for assists and even goals from the left wing. If he does not play against Qarabag in the UEL, he could feature against Southampton. Regardless, you can pick him up after the Southampton game since he will certainly play over Kolasinac when fit.

Manchester United are another team with a good fixture list. Post-Liverpool at the weekend where they might get battered, Mourinho’s team face a mostly lenient 9-game run, with Tottenham at Wembley the only top six opposition.

United have been very flaky so we should be careful picking up players from the team. It looks like Marcus Rashford (6.9m) has now earned his coaches trust and is coming up with the points. Anthony Martial (7.4m) is also a solid midfield option if he can stay fit.
One outsider is Ashley Young (5.7m). He delivered last week against Fulham with 12 points, thanks to a goal and an assist. The reliable veteran will surely be used by Mourinho over the next nine games and his ability to deliver on set pieces (free kicks and corners), assists through his crosses from the left and even benefit from clean sheets as United face weaker opposition, make him a good pick in defence.
