On last week's Team 33 Fantasy Premier League slot, Diego Costa and Romelu Lukaku were flagged as potential options by our co-presenters Eoin Sheahan and Tommy Rooney during Sergio Aguero's ban.

As it happened, both players delivered five goals between them at the weekend so if you had either of them in your Fantasy teams, you struck gold and we envy you.

Another player mentioned last week was Adam Lallana whose increased output of late resulted in a goal against Leicester in a 4-1 win.

But it's Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino that also caught the eye by scoring the other goals and are growing into valuable options as discussed by Eoin and Tommy this week.

"I think Mane is the danger man and he'd be the one I'd be going for," says Tommy.

Meanwhile, Eoin is pointing towards Firmino, saying that "the one reason why I'm picking Firmino is I was very intrigued as to how they would set up when Coutinho came onto the pitch and then Firmino popped up with another goal after that. I think when Sturridge is on the pitch, both Mane and Firmino are going to thrive brilliantly."
