Seven goals in the last four Gameweeks have made Tammy Abraham (£7.5m) a major target for managers in Fantasy Premier League.

A massive 547,000+ have signed the Chelsea forward for his home match with Brighton & Hove Albion, more than any other player in the Gameweek.

As a result, Abraham has risen £0.2m in price ahead of Saturday's 11:30 BST deadline. He is now the sixth-most popular player in the game, owned by 33.3 per cent of managers.

Abraham is named as the vice-captain in the Gameweek 7 Scout Selection, with Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) given the armband.

Tom Heaton (AVL) £4.5m

The Aston Villa goalkeeper has been a reliable source of points at home. Heaton has returned back-to-back clean sheets at Villa Park ahead of a visit from Burnley.

Serge Aurier (TOT) £5.0m

Owned by only 3.1 per cent of managers, the Tottenham Hotspur defender could be a standout differential for the visit of Southampton. Aurier produced two assists and a clean sheet in his last home match.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) £7.1m

Liverpool’s right-back offers major all-round potential at Sheffield United. Alexander-Arnold has produced 18 points across his last two away appearances, thanks to a goal, an assist and a clean sheet.

Caglar Soyuncu (LEI) £4.6m

Leicester City’s centre-back is a cut-price contender for a clean sheet this weekend. Soyuncu hosts a Newcastle United side who have scored only four goals this season.

Nicolas Otamendi (MCI) £5.5m

A 15 point-haul against Watford last weekend has caught the eye of FPL managers. Otamendi is the most-bought defender in the Gameweek, earning over 224,000 new owners for Manchester City's trip to Everton.

Son Heung-min (TOT) £9.7m

The Spurs attacker has provided two goals and two assists in his last two home meetings with Southampton. Son's 16-point haul in his last match at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium highlights his armband potential.

Mason Mount (CHE) £6.6m

The 20-year-old has scored in three of the last five Gameweeks. Mount's total of eight shots on target ranks joint-second with Sterling among FPL midfielders.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £12.5m

FPL's top-scoring player for the last two seasons, Salah has been Liverpool's most consistent attacker at the start of 2019/20. He has produced attacking returns in five of the first six Gameweeks.

Raheem Sterling (MCI) £12.1m

Rested against Watford last weekend, Sterling will be among the key captain picks for Man City’s trip to Everton. The winger has scored in three of his last four meetings with the Toffees.

Callum Wilson (BOU) £7.8m

The AFC Bournemouth forward is among only three players to produce a goal or an assist in all six Gameweeks. Wilson scored in both of his meetings last season with his weekend visitors West Ham United.

Tammy Abraham (CHE) £7.5m

Chelsea's forward has returned 13 or more points in three of the last four Gameweeks.

What the experts say

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity_): Son is a worthy selection. He's got probably the easiest fixture of the lot and is a midfielder playing a striker role for Spurs. He’s got two goals and two assists from his last three games. Expect him to improve on that tally.

Tom (@WGTA_FPL): The lesser-spotted 4-4-2 formation is interesting. You can see why it's warranted, with a strong back four featuring a differential that many wouldn't have heard of prior to this season. Leicester's Soyuncu is an underpriced asset at just £4.6m in a tight defence.

Ash (@FPLHints): Mount failed to score against Liverpool last weekend, in part due to fitness issues, but I fully expect him to get back up and running against Brighton at Stamford Bridge.

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily): This midfield and attack looks primed for goals. I'd like to have seen Jamie Vardy (£8.9m) in there against Newcastle, but Abraham especially looks a fantastic pick, even a captaincy option. I'm playing Heaton too this weekend. I'm expecting him to get his third home clean sheet of the season.

Ben Crabtree (@FC_CrabDogg): No Kevin De Bruyne (£9.9m) is a bit of a surprise given his form. The four at the back look good but maybe a Crystal Palace defender could have made it. I'm hoping Son scores big.

Ben McNair (@drbenmcnair): My only bone to pick would be Wilson. He's had only seven shots all season. I'd prefer Raul Jimenez (£7.3m) at home against a leaky Watford defence.

Paul Gee (@FPLPaulGee): Doubling up on Chelsea players is a great tactic over their upcoming fixtures. I like that Aurier and Son are in there. Son would be my captain choice.

Lee Bonfield (@FPLFamily): Chelsea have a wonderful run of fixtures and having Mount or Abraham seems sensible given the way the Blues have been attacking this season. Feeling brave? Why not have both!
