The Scout reckons Man Utd striker can get more goals at home against West Ham

A visit from West Ham United boosts the potential of Marcus Rashford (£7.4m) for Fantasy Premier League managers in Gameweek 34, ahead of Friday's 19:00 BST deadline.

The Manchester United forward scored in his last Premier League home appearance, a 2-1 win over Watford in Gameweek 32.

Rashford was also on the scoresheet in his previous meeting with the Hammers in Gameweek 7.

West Ham have struggled in defence and are without a clean sheet in their last eight away matches.

That helps earn Rashford a place in The Scout's best XI for Gameweek 34, with Son Heung-min (£8.7m) given the armband in a 3-4-3 formation and Jamie Vardy (£9.2m) handed the vice-captaincy.

Neil Etheridge (CAR) £4.7m

Cardiff City's goalkeeper is likely to be busy during his trips to Burnley and Brighton & Hove Albion. Etheridge has made 19 saves, earning six save points, across his last three away matches.

Kieran Trippier (TOT) £6.0m

The Tottenham Hotspur right-back will pose plenty of problems for Huddersfield Town. At home, Trippier's 26 chances created rank second among FPL defenders.

Shane Duffy (BHA) £4.8m

Brighton's centre-back boasts a big attacking threat for the two home matches in his Double Gameweek 34. Duffy has scored five goals this season, more than any other defender in FPL, ahead of visits from AFC Bournemouth and Cardiff.

Jonny (WOL) £4.3m

The Wolverhampton Wanderers wing-back looks a standout value pick for his trip to Southampton. Costing £1.0m less than team-mate Matt Doherty (£5.3m), Jonny is owned by only 2.9 per cent of FPL managers.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £13.2m

Liverpool's top scorer was back on the scoresheet in last week's win at Southampton. Salah can deliver again at home to Chelsea, who travel to Anfield with only one clean sheet in their last 11 away matches.

Christian Eriksen (TOT) £9.3m

Owned by only 7.4 per cent, the Spurs playmaker could be a major differential for the captaincy. Eriksen has two goals, two assists and 29 FPL points in his last three home outings.

Kevin De Bruyne (MCI) £9.7m

His total of 17 key passes in his last four matches is the second-highest among all players in FPL. De Bruyne can make the difference as Manchester City travel to Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Son Heung-min (TOT) £8.7m

The most-bought player in the Gameweek, with over 320,000 transfers in, Son has scored in both of Spurs' matches at their new stadium. Spurs host a Huddersfield Town defence who have conceded 11 goals in their last four road trips.

Jamie Vardy (LEI) £9.2m

The Leicester City striker has flourished under Brendan Rodgers, with six goals and two assists in his last five matches. Vardy can extend his scoring streak at home to Newcastle United on Friday night.

Glenn Murray (BHA) £6.3m

The Brighton forward has scored seven of his 11 goals at home. Brighton host two teams this Gameweek, AFC Bournemouth and Cardiff, who have both managed only three away clean sheets in 2018/19.

Marcus Rashford (MUN) £7.4m

Since the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in Gameweek 18, Rashford's total of 49 shots puts him among the top three players in FPL.
