Belgian backed for another double-digit haul in best Fantasy XI captained by a Spurs star

A 10-point haul last time out raises the potential of Leandro Trossard (£5.7m) in Blank Gameweek 29 of Fantasy Premier League.

Trossard faces Newcastle United at home on Saturday on the back of a goal at Southampton, his third double-figure return in his last 11 starts.

He also claimed 11 and 10 points at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers and Tottenham Hotspur respectively in that period.

The underlying numbers further lift the appeal of Trossard in Fantasy.

His five shots on target in the last four Gameweeks are more than any other player for Brighton & Hove Albion.

Trossard is joined by team-mate Lewis Dunk (£5.0m) in a Scout Selection that lines up in a 3-5-2 formation, with Harry Kane (£11.5m) handed the armband and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.5m) named vice-captain.

Illan Meslier (LEE) £4.6m

The Leeds United No 1 has risen to fourth among goalkeepers in Fantasy on the back of 32 points in his last four appearances. Meslier can bring in more returns against a Fulham side who have scored only two goals in their last nine home matches.

Lewis Dunk (BHA) £5.0m

Four goals and seven clean sheets highlight his potential at both ends of the pitch against Newcastle. Dunk’s 21 shots inside the box, 17 headed shots and 10 shots on target all place second among defenders in Fantasy.

Kieran Tierney (ARS) £5.2m

Arsenal’s left-back has combined one goal and three assists with three clean sheets in his last eight appearances. Tierney’s attacking potential alone makes him worth the investment for the Gunners’ trip to West Ham United.

Stuart Dallas (LEE) £5.1m

Hauls of 12 and 15 points in his last seven matches show the 29-year-old's explosive potential in Fantasy. Dallas’s 11 shots on target are more than any other defender in Fantasy this season.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (ARS) £11.5m

The Arsenal star has thrived since being moved up front recently, scoring six goals and earning 45 points in his last four starts. Aubameyang produced a goal and an assist at West Ham last season and is among the top captain options for Gameweek 29.

Gareth Bale (TOT) £9.6m

The Welshman looks back to his very best ahead of Spurs' match at Aston Villa. Bale has scored six goals and supplied three assists in his last eight matches in all competitions.

Jesse Lingard (WHU) £6.1m

The West Ham midfielder has four goals and two assists in six appearances since arriving on loan in January. Lingard’s 7.3 points per match is more than any other player this season, raising his appeal as a captaincy pick.

Raphinha (LEE) £5.6m

Leeds’ Brazilian offers major all-round potential at Fulham. Raphinha’s totals of 17 chances created and 10 shots inside the box over the last four Gameweeks both place among the top two players in Fantasy.

Leandro Trossard (BHA) £5.7m

Sitting in just 2.3 per cent of squads, Trossard can be a handy differential for the reduced round of fixtures.

Harry Kane (TOT) £11.5m

An ownership of 43 per cent means Kane will be the go-to armband pick for many Fantasy managers. His 22 shots, 12 shots in the box and eight shots on target in the last four Gameweeks are all league-leading totals. 

Michail Antonio (WHU) £6.6m

The West Ham striker can take advantage of an Arsenal side who are without a clean sheet in 10 matches across all competitions. Antonio welcomes the Gunners in fine form, having scored against Spurs and Manchester City in the last four Gameweeks.
