Caledonian Demons are rock bottom in 209th after a 29-point haul took the Golden Bear’s side to 62 points, still a way off Craig Rackham’s Rackti Dettori and Michael Dennis’ Amigo’s, who continue to struggle.

Three of the top four teams in the Barclays Premier League are handed home comforts this weekend as The Scout analyses the upcoming round of fixtures.

Leicester City entertain Arsenal at the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon, as Claudio Ranieri’s side look to extend their six-match unbeaten start to the season. Second-placed West Ham United seek a third successive victory at home to Norwich City, while Manchester United welcome struggling Sunderland to Old Trafford.

Elsewhere, league leaders Manchester City look to bounce back from a first loss of the season as they travel to Tottenham Hotspur.

Southampton and Swansea City go head-to-head at St Mary’s Stadium, defending champions Chelsea travel to Newcastle United, while in-form Watford look for a third successive win as Crystal Palace make their way to Vicarage Road.

Ones To Watch (courtesy of fantasypremierleague.com)

Kurt Zouma – Chelsea’s imposing young defender has now started each of the last four Gameweeks, with his pace at the back crucial to the Blues’ high defensive line tactic.

At a cost of just 5.4, Zouma – who served up a 15-point haul in the previous game week – now visits a Newcastle side that’s scored just once in their last five fixtures.

Kevin de Bruyne – a goal in the midweek cup win over Sunderland took the Belgian’s tally to two strikes in as many starts for Manchester City.

Having also netted in last weekend’s clash with West Ham, the 3%-owned De Bruyne looks a real in-form differential as the league leaders roll up to Tottenham.

Victor Moses – a goal and assist in his first two appearances for West Ham highlights the wide man’s instant impact.

Priced at just 5.3, Moses offers a budget-friendly route into the Hammers attack at home to a Norwich City unit that’s failed to keep a clean sheet this term.

Juan Mata – one of the most consistent performers in the BPL, the Manchester United playmaker has now scored or assisted in four of the last five Gameweeks.

Currently sitting in just 12% of teams, Mata will fancy his chances of extending that streak at home to basement-dwellers Sunderland.

Bojan Krkic – the Stoke frontman wasted no time in getting amongst the points on his first league start since January last weekend.

After recovering from a long-term knee injury, the 5.3-priced Bojan grabbed a goal and maximum bonus points at home to Leicester City and now welcomes AFC Bournemouth to the Britannia.
