The home form of Jack Grealish (£7.5m) is set to pose big problems for Brighton & Hove Albion in Gameweek 9 of Fantasy Premier League

The playmaker has recorded double-figure hauls in two of his last three appearances at Villa Park, bringing in 24 and 15 points against Liverpool and Southampton respectively.

That has helped Grealish average 10.8 points per home match for Aston Villa this season.

He is included in a Scout Selection that lines up in a 3-4-3 formation, with Sadio Mane (£12.0m) handed the armband and Hakim Ziyech (£8.2m) named vice-captain. 

Emiliano Martinez (AVL) £4.8m

The Villa goalkeeper has proved a major success this season, averaging 5.7 points per match ahead of a visit from Brighton.

Reece James (CHE) £5.0m

The right-back has started each of the last three Gameweeks for Chelsea. One goal, one assist and two clean sheets in his six starts highlight James’ all-round potential for a trip to Newcastle United.

James Tarkowski (BUR) £5.4m

His four headed attempts for Burnley rank among the top five defenders in FPL. Tarkowski’s aerial threat can lead to big points against a Crystal Palace side who have conceded a league-leading 37 efforts from set-pieces.  

Aaron Cresswell (WHU) £5.1m

FPL’s most creative defender this term has supplied 17 key passes in the first eight Gameweeks for West Ham United. Cresswell visits a Sheffield United side who have scored a single goal in their four home matches.

Sadio Mane (LIV) £12.0m

An ownership of just 10.7 per cent makes the Senegalese an enticing differential for the armband. Mane has scored in each of his last two home meetings with Leicester City.

Bruno Fernandes (MUN) £10.6m

The Portuguese has earned over 482,000 new owners for Manchester United’s home encounter with West Bromwich Albion. Fernandes has produced three sets of double-figures in his seven matches and will be among the favourites for the captaincy.

Hakim Ziyech (CHE) £8.2m

Chelsea’s playmaker has returned double-digits in both starts over the last two Gameweeks. Ziyech has also supplied four big chances in that period, more than any other player in Fantasy.

Jack Grealish (AVL) £7.5m

The Villa captain has impressed for club and country this season and has produced 43 FPL points over his four home outings.

Jamie Vardy (LEI) £10.1m

Leicester’s striker has the form to take advantage of a Liverpool defence who could be without their entire first-choice back four. Vardy has scored three goals and supplied two assists in the last three Gameweeks. 

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (EVE) £7.8m

One of the most consistent players in 2020/21, the Everton striker has blanked only once in the first eight Gameweeks. Calvert-Lewin visits a Fulham side who have conceded 11 big chances at home, the second-most in the Premier League. 

Patrick Bamford (LEE) £6.1m 

The Leeds United forward welcomes Arsenal on the back of four goals in the last three Gameweeks. Bamford has produced 16 shots in the box from Gameweek 5 onwards, five more than any other player in FPL.

Remember the Gameweek 9 deadline is at 11:00 GMT on Saturday 21 November.
