Everton striker has scored four goals in his last five outings and takes his place in a Gameweek 28 line-up captained by Mohamed Salah

With four goals and an assist in his last five appearances, Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£6.3m) has been a major target for Fantasy Premier League managers ahead of Friday's Gameweek 28 19:00 GMT deadline.

The Everton frontman has earned more than 105,000 new owners for his home encounter with Manchester United.

Since the arrival of Carlo Ancelotti as manager in Gameweek 19, Calvert-Lewin has been among the standout attackers in FPL.

His totals of 35 shots, and 32 shots in the box, rank second among all players from that point onwards.

And his 16 shots on target are a league-leading figure.

Calvert-Lewin earns a place in a Scout Selection that lines up in a 3-4-3 formation, with Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) handed the armband and Sadio Mane (£12.4m) given the vice-captaincy.

Alex McCarthy (SOU) £4.4m

The Southampton goalkeeper has recorded all four of his clean sheets this season in the last nine Gameweeks. McCarthy can add to that tally as Saints make their way to West Ham United.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) £7.7m

FPL's top-scoring defender offers major all-round potential for Liverpool's visit to Watford. Alexander-Arnold has delivered attacking or defensive points in his last 13 starts.

Federico Fernandez (NEW) £4.5m

The Newcastle United centre-back boasts excellent home form ahead of his match against Burnley. Fernandez has averaged 5.3 points per start at St James' Park this season.

Adam Webster (BHA) £4.4m

Brighton & Hove Albion's centre-back offers a big attacking threat at home against Crystal Palace. Webster has scored three goals and supplied an assist over his 21 Gameweek appearances.

Harvey Barnes (LEI) £6.0m

The Leicester City winger can provide a cut-price source of goals against Norwich City. Barnes has scored in three of his last four Gameweek starts, totalling 29 points.

Sadio Mane (LIV) £12.4m

The Senegalese winger has thrived against Watford, producing five goals and four assists in six encounters for Liverpool. Owned by 24.3 per cent, compared with the 45.2 per cent of Salah, Mane looks a standout alternative for the Gameweek 28 armband.

Bruno Fernandes (MUN) £8.2m

The most-bought player in the Gameweek, the Portuguese has earned over 298,000 transfers in. Fernandes has two goals and two assists in five appearances across all competitions since arriving at Old Trafford last month.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £12.8m

Like Mane, Liverpool's Egyptian has a prolific record against Watford, scoring eight goals and providing two assists in his five meetings with them. Salah netted twice to record 16 points against the Hornets in Gameweek 17.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (EVE) £6.3m

The Everton forward has averaged 5.9 points per match under Carlo Ancelotti.

Danny Ings (SOU) £7.1m

A visit to West Ham boosts Ings' chances of adding to his 15 goals and one assist this season. The Hammers have conceded 14 goals in the last four Gameweeks, more than any other side.

Jamie Vardy (LEI) £9.7m

The Leicester striker has a strong record against sides in the bottom half of the table. Thirteen of his 17 goals this season have come against such opponents.

What the experts say

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity_): I hope Vardy repays the faith as I've held him for a while. There's high hopes for this Liverpool triple-up. Expect Fernandes to shine again.

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily): That front three looks set for a big return. While Vardy hasn't had the form this calendar year, we saw a glimmer of his potential against Manchester City last weekend. The obvious captain comes from Liverpool, although it's hard to pick between those three. Alexander-Arnold hasn't blanked in a match he has started since Gameweek 13 and there is very little to choose between Mane and Salah. All three could and should do very well this weekend.

Ben Crabtree (@FC_CrabDogg): Webster is an interesting pick. This could be a week for more differentials. I think Ayoze Perez (£6.2m) and Marcos Alonso (£6.0m) could be good to own.

Chuck Booth (@ChuckBoothSport): Looking at his attacking returns this season, I like the sneaky addition of Webster. Being strapped for cash to own Salah and Mane, Webster and Barnes are two budget buys who can get returns this week.

Neal Thurman (@nealjthurman): I'm not loving Barnes despite the great match-up. I'd prefer to bet on a second strong week from Dwight McNeil (£6.0m) instead.

Lee Bonfield (@FPLFamily): Bruno Fernandes in the Scout Selection this week and I suspect not his last appearance this season. Everton away on paper looks tough but the Toffees have conceded eight goals in their last four fixtures. Man Utd's new playmaker looks red-hot so far, with set-pieces and penalties in his locker, too.
