Man City are the top rated team for clean sheet potential in GW16. The Citizens are set to host Man Utd and will be buoyed for the derby following their 1-4 victory over Burnley at the weekend. Ederson (£6.0m) remains the only member of City’s backline that is guaranteed to play each week, though Benjamin Mendy (£5.6m) could be set to return to the starting XI after being afforded rest midweek.

Behind Man City are Spurs, who play host to Burnley in GW16. After winning their opening three matches in all competitions under Jose Mourinho, Spurs lost midweek to Man Utd and the manager will be looking to his team for a bounce-back performance against the Clarets. Surprisingly for a Jose team, Tottenham are yet to keep a clean sheet and have conceded two goals in each of their three league games under him. A match against Burnley gives a chance to remedy that situation. Of the backline, Serge Aurier (£4.9m) offers both attacking and defensive potential.
