Selected by: 0.8%

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal)
Selected by: 2.5%
Fixtures: Aston Villa (H), Leicester City (A) & Watford (H)
The Arsenal man seems to be finding form at the Emirates with three goals in his last three home games, raking in 16 points. With two home games coming up for the Gunners, the frontman could be a great differential option.
Callum Wilson (Newcastle)
Selected by: 1%
Fixtures: Crystal Palace (A), Chelsea (H) & Brighton (A)
The forward picked up exactly where he left off before his injury, scoring instantly for the Magpies. He has three goals in his last four league starts.
Connor Gallagher (Crystal Palace)
Selected by: 7.8%
