This Monday's Sky Sports Six-a-Side match-up sees Bournemouth host Crystal Palace, live on Sky Sports Football from 7pm.
The hosts were on the wrong end of a 4-0 thumping last time out, at the hands of Burnley, while Roy Hodgson's side drew 0-0 with Newcastle and are unbeaten in three matches in all competitions.
Your Elite Player choice is a testing decision, especially when all four have the capability to claim a hefty points haul. Take a look at the contenders and then pick your Fantasy Six-a-Side team.
The Cherries frontman has directly contributed to six of their 10 goals this season by scoring two and creating four of those.
Wilson boasts the most chances created out of Elite Players with eight, which has made up 56 of the 162 points he has accumulated so far this season.
He is the frontrunner alongside Wilfried Zaha, as the talisman has been recruited by 33.7 per cent of Sky Sports Six-a-Side players who have backed him to have a good game.
Wilson's team-mate has also notched two goals this season, chipping in with an assist for Eddie Howe's side too. King has recorded 210.5 points thus far, 48.5 more than the previous man in the list.
He has won an impressive 19 aerial duels, eight more than the closest challenger from the Elite Player field, while creating a modest seven chances for his team-mates over the course of the opening six matches.
With King on penalty duty, it could be a tough choice whether to elect him as your number one, especially with your Power Play period still to choose.
Crystal Palace's main man has netted three goals in only five starts and averages a healthy 42.4 points per match, only just bettered by the next man in the list.
Question marks have been raised over the safety of Zaha during matches, which may stem from the 14 fouls he has won, averaging just under three per match, and is double the next Elite Player in that field.
If the Eagles are to come away from the Vitality Stadium with all three points, Zaha will be pivotal in earning them for his side, and clocking up valuable Sky Sports Six-a-Side points in the process.
The Serbian midfielder may not offer much of an attacking threat in comparison to the other three Elite players, though he provides a reliable source of points, particularly from successful passes and tackles.
He has made 14 successful tackles, more than Wilson, King and Zaha combined, which has racked up 28 of his 266 points. An impressive 127 have come from his passing, which again is much more than any of the other Elite Player options.
Milivojevic provides Sky Sports Six-a-Side players with a unique option as his selection percentage is 6.4, so he could be the one who puts you ahead of the pack with a stand-out performance.
