The Gameweek begins when Liverpool host Huddersfield at 8pm on Friday, which means all FPL team selections have to be made by 7pm.

Six games then take place on Saturday, before another three on Sunday.

We've looked at players worth considering for the Fantasy Premier League and Sky Sports Fantasy Football competitions - the latter you can change captain for each game day, which adds extra significance to each game day.

Here are our five players to consider for Gameweek 36.

Mohamed Salah

Liverpool's forward has returned to top form in recent weeks with two goals and two assists in his last four Premier League matches.

A home game with rock-bottom Huddersfield on Friday evening should see Salah continue his form and few would bet against him finding the back of the net against the Terriers.

Salah has 19 goals and 11 assists this season and is the top-scoring player in FPL with 230 points, while he is the fourth top-scorer in Sky with 229 points.

Salah costs £13.2m in FPL and £12.9m in Sky.

Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are also worth considering, as are Liverpool defenders with another clean sheet likely against a Huddersfield side who have scored just 20 goals this season.

Heung-Min Son

Tottenham have won all four games at their new stadium without conceding a goal and host West Ham on Saturday lunchtime.

Son has starred for Spurs this season and although he has just one goal in his last nine Premier League matches, he is suspended for the Champions League on Tuesday so is likely to get plenty of minutes.

The South Korean international has scored 12 goals and provided eight assists this season and he'll be looking to add to that total against the Hammers.

He costs £8.8m in FPL and £10.6m in Sky and has returned 159 and 162 points respectively.

Christian Eriksen, Lucas Moura and Dele Alli are other Spurs players worth considering.

Shane Long

The Southampton striker could be an excellent differential option for this Gameweek.

He has scored three goals in his last four matches and the Saints host local rivals Bournemouth on Saturday.

Long is a cheaper option and is owned by just 2.9 per cent of managers in FPL and 0.5 per cent in Sky.

He costs £4.6m in FPL and £8.0m in Sky and has picked up 58 and 61 points respectively.

Jamie Vardy

The Leicester forward could be a shrewd addition for this Gameweek as the Foxes host an Arsenal side who have lost to Crystal Palace and Wolves in the last week, conceding three in both games.

Vardy has hit form under Brendan Rodgers and has scored 16 goals and provided five assists in total this season. Eight of those goals have come in his last eight league matches.

The former England striker costs £9.0m in FPL and £11.5m in Sky and he has returned 157 and 155 points respectively.

Bernardo Silva

Manchester City travel to Burnley on Sunday and Bernardo has enjoyed an excellent season.

He scored City's first in their 2-0 victory at Manchester United on Wednesday and has seven goals and eight assists this season.

City need to win to keep their hopes of a second successive title on track and Bernardo could be the man to unlock the Clarets' defence, although you also can't ignore Raheem Sterling, David Silva or Sergio Aguero.

Bernardo costs £7.6m in FPL and £9.3m in Sky and has returned 146 and 151 points respectively this season.
