West Ham forward picked in best Gameweek 20 Fantasy XI captained by Bruno Fernandes

A trip to Crystal Palace boosts the prospects of Michail Antonio (£6.3m) getting more goals in Gameweek 20 of Fantasy Premier League.

The West Ham United striker was the top-performing forward in Double Gameweek 19, bringing in 18 points across his matches against Burnley and West Bromwich Albion.

Antonio scored and earned the maximum three bonus points on both occasions.

He has now found the net in five of his nine starts this season.

That form mirrors Antonio's strong end to last season, when he scored nine goals in his final 11 starts.

The Hammers’ forward will now look to take advantage of a Palace side who have struggled in defence at Selhurst Park in 2020/21.

At home, the Eagles have conceded 15 goals, a total better only than the 24 of West Brom.

Antonio is included in a selection that lines up in a 3-4-3 formation, with Bruno Fernandes (£11.3m) handed the armband and Harry Kane (£11.2m) given the vice-captaincy.

Emiliano Martinez (AVL) £5.1m

A visit to Burnley hands Aston Villa’s No 1 the chance to add to his nine clean sheets this season. Martinez faces a Clarets side who have struggled in attack recently, scoring only two goals in their last five matches.

Ruben Dias (MCI) £5.9m

The centre-back offers a rotation-free route into Manchester City’s defence against West Brom. Dias has amassed 42 points in his last six fixtures, combining five clean sheets with an assist and seven bonus points.

Harry Maguire (MUN) £5.4m

Manchester United's centre-back can bring in points at both ends of the pitch at home against Sheffield United. Maguire has three clean sheets in his last five outings, while his 20 shots in the box are more than any other defender in FPL.

Aaron Cresswell (WHU) £5.4m

The left-back offers multiple routes to returns against Palace. Cresswell sits just one point off the top of the FPL defender standings, having produced two assists, three clean sheets and four bonus points in his last five appearances.

Ilkay Gundogan (MCI) £5.5m

The Man City midfielder has scored all five of his goals this season in his last seven appearances. Gundogan’s 12 shots in the box over the last four Gameweeks are more than any other midfielder in FPL.

Bruno Fernandes (MUN) £11.3m

His eight double-figure hauls are a league-leading total in 2020/21 FPL. Owned by 55.3 per cent, Fernandes is likely to be the most-selected captain against a Sheff Utd side who have a single clean sheet to their name this term.

Paul Pogba (MUN) £7.7m

An ownership of 2.9 per cent makes the Frenchman a major differential for Gameweek 20. Pogba has two goals, an assist and six bonus points in his last four appearances, totalling 28 points. 

James Maddison (LEI) £7.2m

Leicester City's playmaker heads to Everton having scored in four successive matches in all competitions. That form has made Maddison the second most-popular target in Fantasy ahead of Tuesday’s 16:30 GMT deadline. He has over 399,000 new owners. 

Patrick Bamford (LEE) £6.7m

The Leeds United forward boasts a major threat against Newcastle United at St James’ Park. Away from home, Bamford’s 40 shots and 32 shots in the box are both more than any other player in FPL.

Harry Kane (TOT) £11.2m

Goals in three successive Gameweeks have taken the Tottenham Hotspur talisman to the top of the FPL player standings on 142 points. Kane is the most-bought forward in the Gameweek, brought in by 323,000+ managers for his home encounter with Liverpool

Michail Antonio (WHU) £6.3m

The West Ham forward has earned over 320,000 new owners for his visit to Crystal Palace.
