This week's standout fixture sees Chelsea host Manchester City

Whilst many had predicted that David Moyes would find it difficult to fill the gargantuan shoes of Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford, even Nostradamus would not have foreseen Arsenal leading the English Premier League after eight games.

During their 4-1 win to Norwich last weekend, the Gunners midfield put on a masterclass on why it was crucial to see that it is not just strikers who score points for your fantasy football team. As well as strikes from Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere, Mesut Ozil capped a fine display as he scored twice. Kudos to those who have spent the necessary £10.6 million to get the German point machine in your team.

It's also worth mentioning that out of the four goals scored at St. James's Park in the 2-2 draw between Liverpool and Newcastle, only one came from a striker. In addition, following their 1-1 draw, Southampton's spirited show at Manchester United was capped by an equaliser from a midfielder with an assist from a defender.

With in mind, it's crucial to assess where else points can come from as we embrace the upcoming set of fixtures. As Chelsea host Manchester City, Newcastle travel to Sunderland for the North-East derby and Stoke attempt to be the latest team to destabilise Moyes' Manchester United, there are points aplenty to be had.

Let's take a look at the players who can harvest points and who can hemmorage them.
