The Scout says Liverpool defender can deliver another big haul against Burnley

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£5.5m) has been a red-hot target for Fantasy Premier League managers in Gameweek 30.

The right-back is the most-bought player ahead of Saturday's 11:30 GMT deadline, earning over 112,000 new owners for Liverpool’s home encounter with Burnley.

Alexander-Arnold has produced three assists, two clean sheets and 27 FPL points in his last two appearances.

That all-round potential earns him a place in defence in a 3-4-3 formation, with Sergio Aguero (£11.8m) handed the armband and Raheem Sterling (£11.4m) given the vice-captaincy.

Ederson (MCI) £5.6m

The Manchester City goalkeeper has 124 FPL points, more than any defensive team-mate. Ederson is seeking a fifth successive clean sheet as Watford visit the Etihad Stadium on Saturday evening.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) £5.5m

A major source of points in home fixtures, the 20-year-old has produced four double-digit hauls in his nine starts at Anfield. Indeed, Alexander-Arnold has averaged 7.9 points per home start this season.

Fabian Schar (NEW) £4.7m

Newcastle United’s centre-back has been a huge success at both ends of the pitch in recent home matches. Schar welcomes Everton on the back of three goals and three clean sheets in his last four outings at St James’ Park.

Jeffrey Schlupp (CRY) £4.5m

The Crystal Palace defender has stepped up his attacking output since moving into midfield. Schlupp has one goal and three assists in the last five Gameweeks and now takes on Brighton & Hove Albion.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £13.4m

The top-scoring player in FPL, Salah has recorded three double-digit hauls in his last six matches at Anfield. Burnley arrive having conceded 505 shots this season, at least 60 more than any other side. 

Robert Snodgrass (WHU) £5.0m

West Ham United’s midfielder offers a cut-price option away to Cardiff City. Snodgrass produced two assists and 11 FPL points against the Bluebirds in Gameweek 15.

Ryan Fraser (BOU) £6.1m

Away from home, the AFC Bournemouth winger's total of 33 chances created ranks third overall. Fraser fared well in his last meeting with Saturday's hosts Huddersfield Town, producing a goal, an assist and 12 FPL points in Gameweek 15.

Raheem Sterling (MCI) £11.4m

Man City’s wide man has three goals and three assists in his last five starts, while he has scored in his last two Premier League meetings with Watford. 

Jamie Vardy (LEI) £8.9m

The Leicester City striker has improved his consistency, scoring in three of the last four Gameweeks. Vardy entertains a Fulham side who have conceded 65 goals, more than any other team.

Salomon Rondon (NEW) £5.9m

Newcastle’s target man has returned two goals and two assists in his last four home matches. Rondon will be a key figure against Everton as the Magpies look for a fifth straight win at St James’ Park.

Sergio Aguero (MCI) £11.8m

The Man City striker has racked up seven goals and two assists in his last four Premier League meetings with Watford. In-form Aguero has also scored seven goals in his last three home matches, producing 43 FPL points.

What the experts say

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily): That midfield looks like it has a lot of FPL points in it this weekend. Can’t disagree with those front three picks, although Harry Kane’s (£12.4m) record against Southampton would make me want him, too.

Lee Bonfield (@FPLFamily): Great to see the return of early-season favourite Ryan Fraser. AFC Bournemouth have some great fixtures coming up, starting with Huddersfield Town. Tripling on City also seems sensible, particularly after Watford’s last away performance at Anfield.

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity_): I’m interested to see what a fit and firing Vardy can do against a frail Fulham defence. Sterling and Aguero could go crazy against Watford. Good to see Trent included. I’d be tempted to double up on this fantastic Liverpool defence.

Ben Crabtree (@FC_CrabDogg): I like the Fraser pick and the forward line looks balanced and affordable, with big scores likely.

Neal Thurman (@nealjthurman): Maybe I'm splitting hairs here but I'd rather have David Brooks (£5.0m) than Ryan Fraser if I'm in on the Cherries. Fraser started hot but only has a goal and two assists since Gameweek 15 while Brooks has three and three despite missing five matches in the same timeframe.
