Man Utd midfielder has scored in three of his last four starts and is in a best Gameweek 12 line-up captained by Tammy Abraham

A role up front for Manchester United has lifted Anthony Martial's (£7.7m) potential in Fantasy Premier League.

The Frenchman has scored in three of his four starts in all competitions since returning from injury in late October.

Martial's latest effort came in a 3-0 UEFA Europa League win over Partizan Belgrade at Old Trafford on Thursday evening.

His seven per cent FPL ownership will be hoping for more goals at home to Brighton & Hove Albion this weekend.

Martial takes his place in a Scout selection that lines up in a 3-4-3 formation, with Tammy Abraham (£7.9m) handed the armband and Jamie Vardy (£9.4m) given the vice-captaincy.

Nick Pope (BUR) £4.7m

At home, Burnley's total of three clean sheets is the joint-most in the Premier League. Pope's visitors, West Ham United, have failed to score in two of their last three road trips.

Serge Aurier (TOT) £4.8m

Tottenham Hotspur's right-back offers strong all-round potential at home to Sheffield United. Aurier has two assists and two clean sheets in his six appearances.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) £7.2m

His attacking potential makes the Liverpool right-back a likely source of points at Anfield against Manchester City. At home, Alexander-Arnold's 28 chances created rank joint-top among all players this season.

Jetro Willems (NEW) £4.5m

The Newcastle United wing-back has averaged five points per match over his eight appearances. Willems plays AFC Bournemouth at home and the Cherries have scored a single goal in the last four Gameweeks.

Son Heung-min (TOT) £9.6m

The South Korean scored twice in the UEFA Champions League in midweek. Ahead of facing Sheff Utd, Son has four goals and an assist in his last four matches in all competitions.

Anthony Martial (MUN) £7.7m

A consistent source of FPL points, Martial has produced attacking returns in four of his five Gameweek starts this season.

Sadio Mane (LIV) £12.0m

Since the start of last season, the Liverpool winger has scored 21 of his 28 goals at Anfield. Mane has 32 FPL points across his last three home appearances ahead of Sunday's meeting with Man City.

Christian Pulisic (CHE) £7.3m

The Chelsea midfielder has scored all four of his goals for the season in the last two Gameweeks. Pulisic is the most-bought player ahead of Friday's 19:00 GMT deadline, earning 285,000+ new owners for his match at home against Crystal Palace.

Tammy Abraham (CHE) £7.9m

His total of nine big chances in home matches is more than any other player in FPL. Abraham's Chelsea host a Crystal Palace side who are without a clean sheet on their travels.

Jamie Vardy (LEI) £9.4m

Seven goals in the last five Gameweeks have taken Vardy to the top of the FPL points standings. The Leicester City striker scored twice against Arsenal in the corresponding fixture last season.

Raul Jimenez (WOL) £7.3m

The Wolverhampton Wanderers striker has returned to form with two goals and two assists in the last four Gameweeks. Wolves' visitors Aston Villa have conceded a league-high 82 shots in the box away from home.

What the experts say

Neal Thurman (@nealjthurman): I don't like Jimenez as Wolves are only great against defence-first sides, or Alexander-Arnold, who is hard to justify against Man City. I'd go Callum Wilson (£7.9m) and Diego Rico (£4.3m) and accept the risk of being AFC Bournemouth-heavy on the road.

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity_): I'm jealous of this front three, I'd love to own Jimenez this week. It's a great fixture for Wolves against a Villa side who concede a lot of goals and he's in great form too.

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily): That front three is perfect. The form and fixtures look nailed on for Fantasy points, especially Vardy with eight goals in eight meetings with Arsenal, so I would have been very tempted to give him the armband over Abraham. Pulisic and Son also look great for returning points this weekend especially after Son's comments about playing to the best of his ability and working as hard as possible for both himself and Andre Gomes (£5.3m) in light of last weekend's injury.

Mark McGettigan (@FPLGeneral): I like the Willems pick, he's caught my eye in recent weeks. After making a few transfers this week, I now have the same front three. I can see Mane doing damage against Man City.

Ben McNair (@drbenmcnair): The team looks good but it looks, based on the fixtures, like a particularly unpredictable Gameweek. I think Ashley Barnes (£6.3m) will do well this week but it's hard to argue he should replace any of the forwards in the selection.

Remember to select your Gameweek 12 team before the earlier deadline of 19:00 GMT on Friday 8 November.
