GW14 Captains: Fernandes can retain top spot

The Scout says Man Utd star may again be FPL's most popular armband pick for visit of Leeds

A home meeting with Leeds United allows Bruno Fernandes (£11.0m) the chance to immediately make amends for his blank in the previous Gameweek of Fantasy Premier League.

The most-selected captain of Gameweek 13, Fernandes surprisingly failed to produce attacking returns in Manchester United’s 3-2 win over Sheffield United on Thursday.

But Leeds’ poor away form looks promising for the Portuguese’s 42.4 per cent ownership in Fantasy.

TV Info

Away from home, they have conceded 69 shots in the penalty area and 20 big chances. Both of those totals are among the worst two records in the Premier League.

Marcus Rashford (£9.4m) can also exploit those frailties, having scored twice at Bramall Lane.

Tottenham Hotspur pair Harry Kane (£10.9m) and Son Heung-min (£9.6m) will also be backed at home to Leicester City.

Kane has a prolific record against the Foxes, scoring 14 goals in his 10 Premier League meetings.

Son, meanwhile, has recorded six double-figure hauls in Fantasy this term, more than any other player.

Favourable opponents

Mohamed Salah (£12.4m) also has a strong record against his weekend opponents, Crystal Palace.

Liverpool’s Egyptian has scored four goals and supplied three assists in his last four meetings with the Eagles. 

In-form De Bruyne

Kevin De Bruyne (£11.9m) is Manchester City’s form player for their trip to Southampton.

The Belgian has 31 points in the last four Gameweeks, and his underlying numbers show why.

His 15 shots and 13 chances created both place second overall in that period.

Back Wilson at home

Finally, Callum Wilson (£6.6m) offers managers a mid-price option for the Gameweek 14 captaincy at home to Fulham.

Newcastle United's striker has produced returns in seven of his 11 starts, including double-figure hauls in home matches against Burnley and Everton.

Fulham, meanwhile, have failed to keep a clean sheet on their travels in 2020/21.

Remember the Gameweek 14 deadline is 11:00 GMT on Saturday 19 December.
