Daniel Sturridge (left) and Luis Suarez:

Liverpool's forwards look the obvious picks for Sky Sports Fantasy Football bosses this weekend as they host relegation favourites Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Luis Suarez (£9.9m) bagged a brace on his return to Premier League action to rack up 12 points while the game's highest scorer Daniel Sturride (£9.2m) claimed 18 with a goal, two assists and the Sky Sports man-of-the-match award.

With all of the 'big six' odds-on to win this weekend, selecting a captain is a difficult task but it is worth noting Suarez is considered the most likely player to net at 4/7 anytime and 13/5 for another brace at Sky Bet.

Finding cheaper options is the real challenge but Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey continues to defy his £5.7m price tag, with another 17 points last weekend seeing his total rise to 58, the second highest in the game.

Defender Dejan Lovren (£5.2m) follows with 46 after helping Southampton keep their fourth clean sheet of the season, with the Saints having a decent chance of adding to that tally when Swansea visit.

Tottenham are the only side to match that defensive record but look more likely to add to it when they host a West Ham side which haven't scored on the road this season.

Danny Rose (£4.7m) is the cheapest member of Spurs' backline and is contention to return from injury on Sunday, while Michael Dawson (£6.2m) is the safer bet having started all six games this term.

Paulinho (£6.6m) and Gylfi Sigurdsson (£5.5m) have also impressed for Spurs this season with goals and two MOTM awards apiece.

Across North London, Mesut Ozil (£8.8m) has predictably impressed with four assists plus a MOTM award in his first three games for the Gunners, while Olivier Giroud (£8.5m) has continued to flourish with the German's support, with four goals and two assists.

The Gunners travel to West Brom looking a rack up an incredible eighth successive win on the road, but their backline is perhaps less trustworthy having kept a solitary clean sheet.
