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.

All FPL selections have to be made by 7pm on Friday as the Gameweek begins with Cardiff hosting Wolves at 8pm.

Last week, we suggested Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic as an option for Gameweek 13 and he rewarded anyone who took a punt on the Serbian striker with two goals - and 13 points in FPL and 19 in Sky. Mohamed Salah also did the business for us with eight and seven points respectively.

Here's five players to consider for Gameweek 14.

Leroy Sane

There's so many options to choose from with Manchester City's attacking options.

We've gone for Leroy Sane this week but David Silva and Raheem Sterling are both worth strong consideration, while it's always a risk not to have Sergio Aguero in your fantasy football team.

There's two fixtures in the next week and City entertain Bournemouth on Saturday and then travel to Watford on Tuesday. After they dismantled West Ham 4-0 at the weekend, expect more goals to flow in the upcoming games.

Sane has four goals and two assists in City's last five matches despite only playing in four of them and has picked up 69 points in FPL and 71 in Sky Sports this season. He is priced at £9.3m in FPL and £10.3m in Sky.

Sterling is a man in form and has collected 95 points in FPL (£11.3m) and 100 in Sky (£11.5m) this season, while Silva has returned 66 (£8.6m) and 88 (£10.5m) points respectively.

And you can't ignore Aguero, the Premier League's joint top-scorer this season. He has netted eight goals and picked up 82 FPL points (£11.5m) and 87 in Sky (£12.8m).

Jamie Vardy

Leicester's talismanic forward changed the game when he came on for the Foxes at Brighton on Saturday.

Leicester were down to ten men after James Maddison's red card but Vardy caused the Brighton defence all sorts of problems before he equalised from the penalty spot late on.

With fixtures coming up at home to Watford and away to Fulham, there will be chances for Vardy to add to his four goals so far this season.

A player who takes penalties is also a bonus for fantasy football managers and Vardy often finds the back of the net from the spot.

He costs £8.9m in FPL and £11.5m in Sky and has returned 43 and 48 points respectively so far this season.

Maddison, despite his red card at Brighton, is also worth considering. The attacking midfielder serves his one-match ban when the Foxes host Southampton in the Carabao Cup in midweek.

He costs £6.8m in FPL and £7.6m in Sky and has picked up 47 and 64 points respectively after joining the Foxes from Norwich in the summer.

Wilfried Zaha

The Ivory Coast forward might not have scored since September but Crystal Palace entertain struggling Burnley at Selhurst Park on Saturday.

The Eagles are yet to win at home in the Premier League this season but will target this weekend's fixture as an opportunity to pick up three points.

And if Palace are to get three points, Zaha is likely to play a big part. Palace then travel to arch rivals Brighton on Tuesday and Zaha scored twice the last time the sides met in a 3-2 home victory for the Eagles.

He has three goals and two assists in 11 matches this season. He costs £6.7m in FPL and £10.2m in Sky and has picked up 40 and 50 points respectively so far.

Martin Dubravka

If you're thinking about a change in goal, you could do worse than go for Newcastle stopper Martin Dubravka.

The 29-year-old Slovakian international has kept four clean sheets in 13 matches this season but Newcastle have won their last three games and are unbeaten in four matches.

A favourable run of fixtures are also coming up for Newcastle. They host West Ham on Saturday, before matches with Everton, Wolves, Huddersfield and Fulham.

Dubravka costs £5.0m in FPL and £6.6m in Sky. He has returned 51 and 52 points respectively.

Marcos Alonso

Chelsea entertain Fulham this weekend and will expect to return to winning ways after suffering their first defeat of the season against Tottenham last week.

Chelsea then visit out-of-form Wolves on Wednesday and Alonso will be looking to add to the six clean sheets he has helped the Blues keep so far this season.

The left wing-back has also scored one goal and provided six assists.

He has 87 points in FPL and 95 in Sky and costs £7.1m and £10.1m respectively.

If you're thinking of more attack-minded Chelsea options, Eden Hazard or Alvaro Morata appear the best picks.
