The home form of Anthony Martial (£8.4m) provides Fantasy Premier League managers with a tempting option for the Gameweek 37+ captaincy.

Playing up front for Manchester United, the Frenchman, who is a midfielder in Fantasy, has five goals and three assists in his last three appearances at Old Trafford.

Martial has recorded double-digit hauls on each occasion, totalling 48 points.

His team-mates Bruno Fernandes (£9.1m), Marcus Rashford (£8.9m) and Mason Greenwood (£4.9m) can also deliver big hauls against West Ham United.

Fernandes has averaged 7.5 points per home match this season, while Rashford and Greenwood have both scored three goals in the last four Gameweeks.

Home comforts for Reds pair

They offer strong alternatives to Mohamed Salah (£12.5m), who has been the most-selected captain in each of the last two Gameweeks.

Salah and fellow Liverpool winger Sadio Mane (£12.2m) have the home form to punish Chelsea.

The Egyptian has scored 15 goals at home this season, more than any other player in FPL, while Mane has found the net in four of his last five at Anfield.

In-form Spurs options

The Tottenham Hotspur duo of Harry Kane (£10.9m) and Son Heung-min (£9.6m) have stepped up their output ahead of a visit by Leicester City.

Kane scored twice to claim a 12-point haul against Newcastle United in midweek. He also has a prolific record against the Foxes, scoring 12 goals in his nine meetings.

Son has found the net in back-to-back matches, claiming 21 points.

Gamble on a City player?

Manchester City’s stars could also bring in big returns at Watford.

But Pep Guardiola’s increased rotation could deter owners of Kevin De Bruyne (£10.7m) and Raheem Sterling (£11.8m), with both players benched twice in their last four matches.

Gabriel Jesus (£9.8m), however, has started each of the last five Gameweeks. The Brazilian has three goals and two assists in his previous three outings.

Gunner differential

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.9m) can profit from a visit to Aston Villa.

The Arsenal striker has 12 goals against opponents in the bottom eight of the Premier League, second only to the 14 of Jamie Vardy (£9.8m).
