Wolves forward has scored in three successive matches and earns a place in GW14 line-up captained by Jamie Vardy

Having scored in each of the last three Gameweeks, Raul Jimenez (£7.5m) has been a top target for Fantasy Premier League managers.

The Mexican is the second most-bought forward in the Gameweek, earning more than 175,000 new owners for his home match with Sheffield United.

His underlying statistics show why the Wolverhampton Wanderers striker has been a big success recently.

Jimenez's totals of 22 shots and 16 shots inside the penalty area over the last four Gameweeks are both more than any other player in FPL.

He takes his place in a Scout Selection that lines up in a 3-4-3 formation, with Jamie Vardy (£9.7m) handed the armband and Sadio Mane (£12.2m) given the vice-captaincy.

Nick Pope (BUR) £4.7m

A visit from Crystal Palace hands the Burnley No 1 the chance to extend his terrific form at Turf Moor. At home, Pope's total of four clean sheets is more than any other goalkeeper in FPL.

Serge Aurier (TOT) £4.9m

The Tottenham Hotspur defender has stepped up his attacking threat ahead of a home encounter with AFC Bournemouth. Aurier has one goal and two assists in his first two matches under Jose Mourinho across all competitions.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) £7.2m

The Liverpool defender entertains Brighton & Hove Albion on the back of some impressive creative displays. At home, Alexander-Arnold's 30 key passes rank second among all players in FPL.

Ben Chilwell (LEI) £5.8m

Leicester City's left-back looks a strong all-round prospect at home to Everton. Chilwell has one goal, two assists and four clean sheets in the last four Gameweeks.

Sadio Mane (LIV) £12.2m

FPL's top-scoring midfielder has found the net in each of the last three Gameweeks. Mane has averaged 8.4 points per home start for Liverpool this term.

Son Heung-Min (TOT) £9.7m

The South Korean was Spurs' top FPL performer in their first match under Mourinho, totalling 13 points against West Ham. That has earned him 245,000+ transfers in, more than any other midfielder in Gameweek 14.

Anthony Martial (MUN) £7.8m

The Manchester United attacker has averaged 7.3 points per home start in 2019/20. Martial hosts an Aston Villa side who have conceded a league-leading 94 shots inside the box in away matches.

Christian Pulisic (CHE) £7.5m

The Chelsea winger can extend his recent scoring run at home to West Ham United. Pulisic has six goals in his last seven matches across all competitions for the Blues.

Jamie Vardy (LEI) £9.7m

The top-scoring player in FPL, he has five double-digit hauls in his 13 appearances. Vardy has five goals in his last six meetings with the Toffees.

Danny Ings (SOU) £6.1m

One of the most consistent forwards in FPL, he has scored in five of the last seven Gameweeks. Ings entertains a Watford side who have lost three of their last four in all competitions.

Raul Jimenez (WOL) £7.5m

The Wolves striker extended his recent form with a goal and two assists against Braga in the UEFA Europa League in midweek.

What the experts say

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity_): Pope has been in fine form for me, I hope he can continue to deliver. Surely attacking returns and clean sheets are well due for Trent now? He's been tough to hold with Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) shining on the opposite flank.

Ash (@FPLHints): I can't argue with that front seven for Gameweek 14. I particularly like the Ings pick; with his low ownership and healthy points per million he's the best budget striker available.

Paul Gee (@FPLPaulGee): The Pulisic and Son combo could prove fruitful this week. I would worry about rotation in the weeks to come. Pope has been a good points scorer for me and is a great pick.

Mark McGettigan (@FPLGeneral): Top picks this week. I would have liked to have seen Marcus Rashford (£8.6m) in there but Martial is a nice alternative. Aurier has caught the eye in Mourinho's first two fixtures, he's on my radar.

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily): All aboard the Spurs train! Aurier looks a good pick this week, he was fantastic in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday - more movement and better attacking play which will likely lead to Bonus Points if he gets any attacking or defensive returns. With uncertainty surrounding Tammy Abraham (£8.0m) I really like the Pulisic pick, too, he's the one I would really like to own this week.

Neal Thurman (@nealjthurman): Even with Unai Emery out, I can't escape the notion that Norwich City are going to score at least two against Arsenal. I want Teemu Pukki (£6.6m) in my team and I'll do it at the expense of Ings, who doesn't get to play the Gunners again this week.

Ben Crabtree (@FC_CrabDogg): There are great fixtures for a lot of players this week. lt'll be a high-scoring Gameweek and this team have a lot of bases covered.
