A visit to Southampton hands Bruno Fernandes (£10.8m) the chance to extend his prolific run of away form in Fantasy Premier League.

The Manchester United playmaker has totalled 40 points across his three road trips in 2020/21 FPL, claiming double-figure returns at Brighton & Hove Albion, Newcastle United and Everton.

The underlying numbers suggest he can bring in another bumper haul at St Mary’s.

Fernandes has produced 14 shots and created 12 chances in the last four Gameweeks. Both those totals are among the top three players in Fantasy.

He is named as vice-captain in a 3-4-3 line-up for Gameweek 10, with Kevin De Bruyne (£11.6m) handed the armband.

Sam Johnstone (WBA) £4.5m

West Bromwich Albion’s No 1 has conceded just one goal in his last two home outings. Johnstone can claim a second clean sheet of the season against a Sheffield United side who have scored only four goals in their nine matches.

Patrick van Aanholt (CRY) £5.4m

The Crystal Palace left-back boasts a major goal threat at home against Newcastle. Van Aanholt has produced six shots and four shots in the box in the last three Gameweeks. Both of those totals rank second among FPL defenders.

Joao Cancelo (MCI) £5.5m

A home encounter with Burnley boosts the full-back's potential at both ends of the pitch. Cancelo has created 15 chances in the last five Gameweeks, more than any other Manchester City player. Burnley, meanwhile, have scored just a single goal in their last five contests.

Aaron Cresswell (WHU) £5.2m

Three clean sheets and three assists in his last six Gameweeks highlight the West Ham United defender's all-round potential for their home match with Aston Villa. Cresswell has created 18 chances this season, more than any other defender in Fantasy.

Bruno Fernandes (MUN) £10.8m

The second most-bought player for Gameweek 10, he has earned 193,000+ transfers in ahead of Friday's 18:30 GMT deadline.

Kevin De Bruyne (MCI) £11.6m

The Man City playmaker will be fully refreshed after being rested from UEFA Champions League duties in midweek. De Bruyne has produced 14 shots over the last four Gameweeks, joint-top among FPL midfielders.

Diogo Jota (LIV) £6.7m

Liverpool’s summer signing visits Brighton having scored in three of the last four Gameweeks. That form has made Jota the top transfer target for Gameweek 10, earning over 463,000 new owners.

Riyad Mahrez (MCI) £8.2m

The Man City winger has produced 15 points over his two home outings this term. Mahrez scored twice against Burnley in the corresponding fixture in 2019/20.

Jamie Vardy (LEI) £10.2m

At home against Fulham, the Leicester City talisman is among the top armband contenders for Gameweek 10. Vardy has produced double-figure returns in three of his seven starts this season.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (EVE) £7.9m

Everton's frontman welcomes Leeds United on the back of two goals and 13 points against Fulham last weekend. One of the most consistent players in FPL this season, Calvert-Lewin has blanked just once in the opening nine Gameweeks.

Patrick Bamford (LEE) £6.1m

The Leeds striker has scored six of his seven goals this season on the road, averaging 9.8 points per away match. Bamford faces an Everton defence who have conceded at least twice in six successive Gameweeks.

Remember the Gameweek 10 deadline is at 18:30 GMT on Friday 27 November.
