Fantasy football managers are never entirely happy with their teams, and plenty of bosses have been shuffling their squads looking for the perfect formula ahead of the weekend.

Fantasy Premier League favourite Roberto Firmino is surprisingly one of the players who is being abandoned as gaffers juggle their resources, despite having a tempting run of fixtures on the horizon.

The Brazilian has not scored a goal since GW5 and FPL managers have finally lost patience, with many looking to save a bit of cash with the signing of Callum Wilson.

The hotshot has three goals in his last two appearances and is unsurprisingly among the most targeted players ahead of a trip to Newcastle.

Leicester players are being sold in their droves with a tough set of matches on the way, although bosses may regret offloading James Maddison if he brings attacking returns against Burnley.

Many FPL fans are instead swooping for winger Anthony Martial after he continued his hot streak against the Cherries, while Richarlison is popular having switched to a role up front.

One West Ham star is also being targeted ahead of a trip to Huddersfield, with eight of the Hammers’ next 10 matches awarded two on the Fixture Difficulty Ranking.

On the other hand, Manchester City and Fulham players have both experienced severe sales ahead of GW12, but who are the most signed and shipped out players so far this week?

OUT – 5. Bernardo Silva (Manchester City): 37,183

Two games without a goal and Manchester United up next.

OUT – 4. Roberto Firmino (Liverpool): 53,554

The Brazilian has not scored or provided an assist since the 2-1 win over Tottenham.

OUT – 3. Harry Maguire (Leicester City): 56,792

Maguire was forced off injured before half an hour against Cardiff, but the England centre-back is still in with a chance of playing this week.

OUT – 2. James Maddison (Leicester City): 73,550

No attacking returns since GW7, but the attacking midfielder could make the doubters pay this week.

OUT – 1. Aleksandar Mitrovic (Fulham): 195,668

Mitrovic hasn’t scored since GW6 and things are looking bleak for Fulham.

IN – 5. Sadio Mane (Liverpool): 67,166

Plenty of managers are opting for a straight swap between Firmino and Mane, with the latter currently considered more of a goal threat.

IN – 4. Anthony Martial (Manchester United): 100,559

Five goals in four Premier League fixtures shows a man at the top of his game.

IN – 3. Richarlison (Everton): 117,888

Marco Silva has deployed Richarlison as a lone striker recently, and the Brazilian is reaping the rewards.

IN – 2. Marko Arnautovic (West Ham United): 141,145

Arnautovic overcame illness to get on the scoresheet last time out and has a fantastic run of fixtures on the way.

IN – 1. Callum Wilson (Bournemouth): 164,258

The surprise package of the season with six goals and seven assists so far.
