Fantasy Football Focus: Gameweek 7 Picks - Manchester United and Swansea stars feature

Featuring players from West Ham, Leicester, Sunderland, Swansea and Manchester United...

The Premier League table is starting to take a more genuine shape after six games have passed, but there is still plenty of uncertainty heading into the seventh gameweek of what has already been another mad season.

Six teams in which fantasy managers invest heavily play each other on Sunday, as Manchester United take on Everton before Chelsea play Arsenal and Southampton visit Spurs.

These games are always tricky to predict however, and plenty of attention should be focused on Saturday's fixtures as some bargain players could be set for big weekend's.

Here's who you should be looking at from a fantasy perspective this weekend:

DEF - Patrick Van Aanholt - Sunderland

The attacking left-back has made a fine start to life as a Sunderland player and he will hope to help the Black Cats to their second consecutive clean sheet against Stoke this weekend. Van Aanholt is the highest-scoring Sunderland defender so far, and at just 4.5, he should be seriously considered this weekend and beyond. Sunderland have kept a clean sheet at home to Stoke in three of the past four seasons and will hope to extend that record on Saturday.

DEF - Aaron Cresswell - West Ham

Another left-back to consider this weekend is Aaron Cresswell. The West Ham defender has only picked up eight points so far this season, and his price has dropped to 5.4, but that represents value this weekend as the Hammers take on Queens Park Rangers at home. The R's have struggled to find the net away from home and West Ham will be hoping to keep their first clean sheet of the season against their London rivals, with Cresswell always a threat down the left.

MID - Juan Mata - Manchester United

With Wayne Rooney suspended, Juan Mata should slot in behind the two strikers when the Red Devil's take on Everton this weekend. The Spaniard will be desperate to prove his worth after playing just 15 minutes in the last two games, and he could be set for a big weekend. He is the second-highest scoring midfielder behind Di Maria, but at 8.7, he offers a more affordable way into the United midfield.

MID - Gylfi Sigurdsson - Swansea City

Sigurdsson's incredible start to the campaign has slowed down in recent weeks as Nathan Dyer has been picking up the majority of points, but a home game against struggling Newcastle offers the Icelandic playmaker the perfect opportunity to pick up plenty of points. He will look to carve open the Newcastle defence, while he will also hope to get his second goal of the season to get back on track.

FOR - Leonardo Ulloa - Leicester City

The Foxes are back at home this weekend, as they welcome Burnley to the King Power Stadium. Leicester put five past United in their last home game, while Burnley conceded four at West Brom on Monday night, and all signs point towards a convincing Leicester win in this one. Only Diego Costa has scored more goals than Ulloa, and the Foxes striker will hope to add to his impressive tally of five goals in six games on Saturday afternoon. His price is continuing to rise, but at 5.9, he still offers plenty of value.

Which players will be the most effective from a fantasy perspective this weekend?
