We've looked at players worth considering for the Fantasy Premier League and Sky Sports Fantasy Football competitions - the latter you can change captain for each game day, which adds extra significance to each game day.

The Gameweek begins with Arsenal's trip to West Ham at 12.30pm on Saturday, which means all FPL line-ups and captain choices have to be made by 11.30am.

The final match of the Gameweek is on Monday when Manchester City entertain Wolves.

Here are our five players to consider for Gameweek 22.

Callum Paterson

The Cardiff ultility player is classed as a defender on Sky Sports and a midfielder on FPL but has been playing up front for the Bluebirds.

He has scored four goals and provided one assist this season - while three clean sheets in Sky has also boosted his points total.

Cardiff entertain a Huddersfield side who have lost nine successive games on Saturday.

It's a game Bluebirds boss Neil Warnock will be targeting three points from and Paterson has already struck in home games against Fulham, Brighton and Southampton.

Paterson is a cheap option in both fantasy football leagues, costing just £5.1m in FPL and £5.2m in Sky. He has returned 62 and 67 points respectively so far this season.

David Luiz

The Chelsea defender has been racking up the points this season and has helped the Blues keep ten clean sheets in the 20 league games he has played.

With Newcastle the visitors to Stamford Bridge on Saturday, Chelsea will be aiming to keep another shut-out.

While Eden Hazard is also delivering points most weeks, Luiz is a much cheaper option and is a good differential option. He is owned by just 12.4 per cent of managers in FPL and only 6.9 per cent in Sky.

He costs £5.9m in FPL and £8.8m on Sky and has returned 97 and 144 points so far this season.

Gylfi Sigurdsson

Two out-of-form sides meet at Goodison Park on Sunday when Everton entertain Bournemouth.

The Toffees have won just one of their last eight league matches but Bournemouth have been leaking goals recently, conceding 15 in their last four matches in all competitions, and they have picked up just one win in six league games.

Marco Silva will hope Everton's attacking options shine and Sigurdsson has already netted eight goals and provided three assists this season.

He costs £7.3m in FPL and £9.1m in Sky and has returned 99 and 106 points respectively this season.

Other Everton options worth considering are Richarlison, Bernard and Theo Walcott.

Harry Kane

The Tottenham striker has scored in his last four Premier League games and is already on 14 league goals for the season.

Manchester United visit Wembley on Sunday and have kept just three clean sheets all season.

Spurs won 3-0 at Old Trafford earlier this season and will have to pick up all three points again to keep pace at the top of the table.

United have won five successive games under caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but this is the first real test for the Norwegian.

With fixtures against Fulham, Watford, Newcastle, Leicester and Burnley after Manchester United for Spurs, now is a good time to get Kane in your team if you haven't already.

He costs £12.6m in FPL and £13.0m in Sky and has returned 130 and 133 points respectively.

Leroy Sane

The German winger has been in outstanding form this season and City will need him to be at his best when Wolves travel to the Etihad on Monday.

There's so many City attacking options to choose from but Sane is cheaper than Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling in both FPL and Sky Sports and is owned by just 10 per cent of FPL managers and 11.7 per cent of Sky bosses.

Sane has scored seven goals - including the winner against Liverpool last week - and provided nine assists this season.

He costs £9.5m in FPL and £10.3m in Sky and has returned 107 and 112 points respectively.

Other strong City options include Aguero, Sterling, Bernardo Silva and David Silva, while Kevin De Bruyne will also be worth considering once he's back to full fitness.
