A visit from Norwich City can help Christian Pulisic (£7.3m) continue his consistent run of form in Fantasy Premier League.

The Chelsea winger has attacking returns in five of his six outings since the season resumed, scoring three goals and supplying three assists.

The Canaries, meanwhile, are the first side to be relegated this term, with Daniel Farke's side losing each of their last seven matches.

Pulisic earns a place in a Selection that lines up in a 3-5-2 formation, with Raheem Sterling (£11.8m) handed the armband and Mohamed Salah (£12.6m) named vice-captain.

Nick Pope (BUR) £5.0m

The Burnley goalkeeper's total of eight home clean sheets is joint-top among goalkeepers in FPL this season.

Pope hosts a Wolverhampton Wanderers side who have scored only one goal in their last two away matches.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka (MUN) £5.5m

Manchester United's right-back offers strong all-round potential away to his former club Crystal Palace.

Wan-Bissaka has an assist and two clean sheets in his last two road trips, totalling 15 points.

James Justin (LEI) £4.7m

The Leicester City defender can extend his run of home returns against Sheffield United.

Justin has earned a shutout in three successive matches at King Power Stadium.

Lucas Digne (EVE) £5.8m

Everton's left-back has been in excellent form at both ends of the pitch since the season restarted.

Digne welcomes Aston Villa having produced three assists and two clean sheets in his previous six appearances.

Michail Antonio (WHU) £7.0m

His 26 points against Norwich last weekend was the highest single-Gameweek haul of the season.

Owned by less than 4.0 per cent of managers, the West Ham United midfielder remains a major differential at home to Watford.

Raheem Sterling (MCI) £11.8m

Manchester City's wide man has rediscovered his top FPL form ahead of a visit from AFC Bournemouth.

Sterling has four double-digit returns in his previous six appearances, including his season-high 21 points at Brighton & Hove Albion last time out.

Christian Pulisic (CHE) £7.3m

The Chelsea midfielder has averaged 6.5 points per match since the season restarted.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £12.6m

Liverpool's Egyptian enjoyed a successful previous meeting with his midweek hosts, Arsenal.

Salah scored twice to claim 15 points against the Gunners in Gameweek 3.

Bruno Fernandes (MUN) £9.0m

The Portuguese playmaker has thrived on the road since arriving in January.

Fernandes has averaged 10.8 points per away match, producing attacking returns on all five occasions.

Mason Greenwood (MUN) £4.9m

The Man Utd forward has scored against Brighton and Aston Villa in his last two away matches.

Greenwood can bring in more points against a Palace side that have lost five in a row.

Gabriel Jesus (MCI) £9.8m

Two goals and two assists in his last two appearances have made the Man City forward a top target for Gameweek 36+.

Jesus is the third most-bought player, transferred in by over 119,000 managers.

What the experts say

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity_): It's great to see Jesus and Sterling in the front seven. I'd actually encourage a third Man City attacker, with Phil Foden (£5.5m) probably due a start!

Tom (@WGTA_FPL): An unarguably strong side that nicely sums up the zeitgeist; expect it to score high!

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily): It will be interesting to see if Antonio can repeat his Gameweek 35+ heroics in what will undoubtedly be a huge six-pointer. Man Utd have been so good in attack that often it feels like their defenders are overlooked so I'm pleased to see Wan-Bissaka in there for what should be at least be a clean sheet.

Ben Crabtree (@FC_CrabDogg): I like the team but think Kevin De Bruyne (£10.8m) and Olivier Giroud (£6.7m) will do better than Salah and Greenwood.

Neal Thurman (@nealjthurman): I don't love the potential for clean sheets with Justin against a confident Sheff Utd or Wan-Bissaka on the road, and would rather see Aymeric Laporte (£6.3m) and Reece James (£4.9m).

Ben McNair (@drbenmcnair): There are so many good options this week. Despite Antonio's epic haul last Gameweek, I would prefer to include Foden, as he was rested in Man City's last match and faces an AFC Bournemouth side without Nathan Ake (£4.8m).

Remember the GW36+ deadline is 19:15 BST on Tuesday 14 July.
