Arsenal and Everton players key to fantasy success this week

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman looks at upcoming match against Manchester City, saying both sides have problems.
Leicester City manager praises his star striker Jamie Vardy ahead of their top-of-the-table clash with Manchester United.

Many observers will be watching Jamie Vardy (£7.7m) attempt to set a new Premier League record by scoring in his 11th consecutive match this weekend.

History and a Manchester United defence that has kept four clean sheets in the past five gameweeks stand in his way.

As a result, ESPN FC Premier Fantasy managers could be excused for looking elsewhere for better chances of bigger points.

Here's a few places to start your search.

Luis Suarez and Barcelona a test for River Plate at Club World Cup

River Plate will now focus on the Club World Cup and a potential showdown with Barcelona folllowing their Copa Sudamericana campaign.

The South American club season has ended for continental champions River Plate. The Argentine giants were knocked out of the Copa Sudamericana at the semifinal stage, beaten 3-2 by Buenos Aires rivals Huracan on Thursday.

River will not be in the final against Santa Fe of Colombia, meaning they can concentrate all their thoughts on the trip to Japan for next month's Club World Cup. In truth, they have been licking their lips for months, contemplating a dream final against Barcelona.

This, of course,...

Inter Milan's defence to be put to the test by Napoli's Gonzalo Higuain

Inter boss Roberto Mancini has played down his team's title aspirations, despite their 4-0 weekend win over Frosinone.

The last time Inter Milan were in the San Paolo, Mauro Icardi chipped in an exquisite penalty to secure a 2-2 draw against 10-man Napoli last March. Much has changed since then, but as the teams prepare to face each on Monday night, the match may well be no less dramatic. The fixture sees first meet second, as two of Italy's best defences go head to head. The game will also be seen as an early indicator of both teams' title ambitions. While the Nerazzurri will be hoping that their Argentine striker,...

Fiorentina enjoying Serie A and Europa League adventure under Paulo Sousa

Maligned by fans at the start of the season, new Fiorentina boss Paulo Sousa has the club sitting atop Serie A.
Paulo Sousa is in his seventh job in senior management and has guided Fiorentina to the Serie A summit.

By definition, the Europa League is a tournament for also-rans -- but Basel's 2-2 draw with Fiorentina on Thursday night felt like an exception.

Basel are already seven points clear at the top of the Swiss league, while Fiorentina's fine start means they're currently joint-second in Serie A. This was a meeting between two title challengers and there was an obvious link between them.

Paulo Sousa won the Swiss Super League with Basel last season, his second consecutive league victory, having won the...
