The Scout says Wolves midfielder can extend run of home goals against Fulham

Managers in Fantasy Premier League have made Diogo Jota (£6.3m) a top target in Gameweek 37.

The Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder is the most-bought player ahead of Friday's 19:00 BST deadline, earning more than 85,000 new owners for his home encounter with Fulham.

Jota has been far more reliable for FPL returns when playing at home this season.

Seven of his nine goals and three of his five assists have been recorded at Molineux.

That earns him a place in The Scout’s best XI, with Raheem Sterling (£11.6m) handed the armband and Eden Hazard (£10.9m) given the vice-captaincy.

Bernd Leno (ARS) £4.9m

The Arsenal goalkeeper has earned a clean sheet in three of his last five home fixtures. Leno hosts Brighton & Hove Albion, who have scored just one goal in their last seven matches.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) £5.7m

The Liverpool right-back has three assists and three clean sheets in his last four appearances. That all-round potential has helped Alexander-Arnold earn 5.9 points per match ahead of his trip to Newcastle United.

Matt Doherty (WOL) £5.3m

Wolves’ wing-back has been involved in 10 goals this term, scoring four and assisting six. Doherty entertains a Fulham side who have mustered seven goals in their last 13 away matches.

Lucas Digne (EVE) £5.4m

A major attacking outlet for Everton, his 63 scoring chances are more than any other defender in FPL. Digne produced his season-best haul of 17 points against his visitors, Burnley, back in Gameweek 19, scoring twice in a 5-1 win.

Raheem Sterling (MCI) £11.6m

His form at the Etihad Stadium has been crucial to Manchester City’s bid for the title. Sterling has five goals, three assists and 51 FPL points in his last four home starts ahead of a visit from Leicester City.

Eden Hazard (CHE) £10.9m

The Chelsea winger sits joint-second overall with Sterling after a run of superb home performances. Hazard has 63 FPL points in his last six at Stamford Bridge, and meets a Watford defence without a clean sheet in 10 attempts.

Son Heung-min (TOT) £8.8m

Tottenham Hotspur’s attacking midfielder delivered a big haul against GW37 opponents AFC Bournemouth earlier this season, earning 13 points thanks to two goals in the Gameweek 19 reverse fixture.

Diogo Jota (WOL) £6.3m

Jota's 13 shots inside the penalty area rank second to the 14 of Mohamed Salah (£13.3m) among FPL midfielders over the last four Gameweeks.

Sergio Aguero (MCI) £11.9m

The Man City striker will be among the top captaincy contenders for Gameweek 37. Aguero has produced attacking returns in all 13 of his home starts. He also scored four goals at home against Leicester last season.

Marcus Rashford (MUN) £7.3m

Manchester United’s forward is back in training and expected to be fit for their trip to Huddersfield Town. Rashford could be in for a productive afternoon against the relegated Terriers, who have conceded 21 goals in their last six matches.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (EVE) £5.4m

His 11 shots inside the penalty area over the last four Gameweeks ranks second among forwards in FPL. At a cost of £5.4m, Calvert-Lewin offers great value against Burnley as Everton seek a fourth straight home win.

What the experts say

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity_): Rashford is an intriguing differential, who could do well against a leaky Huddersfield defence. I’m hoping Jota can repeat his performance from last week!

Nick and Tom (@WGTA_FPL): I see double Everton and quite fancy the Toffees' odds against a Burnley side who have been poor away from home, coupled with the hosts' fine form. Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.4m) is in my thoughts for my free transfer this week.

Lee Bonfield (@FPLFamily): With home form and a decent fixture I can see a haul for Hazard. He’s scored 10, 14, 16, seven in his last four home games, so is also a decent option for the armband, in a week where most will probably be looking at Man City and Liverpool.

Neal Thurman (@nealjthurman): With Rashford an injury doubt and Burnley playing very well, I'd be looking to Raul Jimenez (£7.0m) at Molineux over either Rashford, unless he's cleared to play, or Calvert-Lewin.

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily): I fully expected to see Luke Shaw (£5.0m) in this week’s Selection ahead of a trip to Huddersfield. A good chance of a clean sheet and attacking potential make him a good pick for me. Calvert-Lewin looks a great option especially as a differential if you are looking to make up ground.

Paul Gee (FPLPaulGee): Hazard is my ultimate tip this week for success, especially for those ranked quite highly, as he will be a differential. I love the Calvert-Lewin pick too as Burnley are poor on the road.
