Liverpool have a particularly favourable couple of fixtures with a trip to Sky Bet's relegation favourites Cardiff followed by the visit of fellow strugglers Sunderland on Wednesday night.
While their backline has recorded successive clean sheets, the Reds' free-scoring form is relentless, racking up 18 goals in their last five Premier League matches.
The game's leading scorer Luis Suarez is a no-brainer as he continues to average over 10 points per game, having scored 24 times, assisted 17 goals and claimed seven Sky Sports Man of the Match awards.
With nine goals in as many games since returning from injury, Daniel Sturridge has climbed to fourth in the list of top points scorers, although the England striker has failed to net is his last two, while Steven Gerrard is up to sixth thanks to three goals in his last two games.
Manchester City also enjoy a double gameweek, with the visit of Fulham followed by a trip to Old Trafford, making the game's third highest scorer, Yaya Toure, another option for the armband.
In Sergio Aguero's absence, 13-goal midfielder Toure is City's most prolific goalscorer, with Alvaro Negredo without a goal in eight games in all competitions.
Fellow title contenders Arsenal also play twice but a trip to Chelsea offers little appeal for their attacking players, with Arsene Wenger's men failing to score in their previous two meetings with the Blues this season.
The Gunners do, however, now boast the most clean sheets this season, with their efforts at White Hart Lane helping Laurent Koscielny climb to third in the top scoring defenders list with 116 points, following Seamus Coleman (120) and John Terry (136).
Newcastle would look more likely to net as they have back-to-back home games, with Crystal Palace and Everton visiting St James' Park, but for Loic Remy's lay-off due to a calf problem.
West Ham also have successive games in their own backyard with Andy Carroll's account finally opened and Kevin Nolan boasting five goals in seven, although none of them were in his last two games.
