The Scout 9 Apr 2021

West Ham midfielder named in best Fantasy XI captained by a Spurs star

A home encounter with Leicester City looks hugely encouraging for the prospects of Jesse Lingard (£6.3m) in Gameweek 31 of Fantasy Premier League.

The West Ham United midfielder has scored six goals and supplied four assists in eight appearances since arriving on loan from Manchester United in January.

He has averaged 8.5 points per match, more than any other player in Fantasy this season.

Lingard will look to take advantage of a Leicester side who have struggled on the road, managing only two clean sheets in their last eight away matches.

He is named as vice-captain in a side that lines up in a 3-4-3 formation, with Harry Kane (£11.7m) handed the armband. 

Nick Pope (BUR) £5.5m

The Burnley goalkeeper looks primed for his 10th clean sheet of the season at home against Newcastle United. The Magpies visit Turf Moor having scored a mere three goals in their last nine away matches.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) £7.3m

Liverpool’s right-back offers multiple routes to returns against Aston Villa. Alexander-Arnold has combined an assist with two clean sheets and six bonus points over his last two outings. 

Lucas Digne (EVE) £6.2m

An advanced role as a wing-back can help Everton’s Frenchman continue his strong away form. Digne has averaged 5.0 points per match on his travels ahead of a trip to Brighton & Hove Albion

Romain Saiss (WOL) £4.9m

The Wolverhampton Wanderers centre-back could bring in points at both ends of the pitch at Fulham. Saiss has scored three goals this season and faces a Cottagers side who have scored only three goals in their last 10 home matches.

Bruno Fernandes (MUN) £11.6m

Man Utd’s Portuguese playmaker has been the most explosive player in Fantasy this term, returning 11 double-figure hauls. Fernandes is among the key captaincy picks for the Red Devils’ match at Tottenham Hotspur.

Mason Mount (CHE) £7.1m

Four of the Chelsea midfielder’s six goals this season have come in their last eight matches. Mount warmed up for the Blues’ trip to Crystal Palace by scoring in a 2-0 win over Porto in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.

Diogo Jota (LIV) £6.9m

The Portuguese is the most-bought player in the Gameweek, earning over 464,000 new owners. Jota scored twice and produced his season-high haul of 12 points against Arsenal last weekend, taking his tally to six goals in his last five appearances for club and country. 

Jesse Lingard (WHU) £6.3m

The on-loan midfielder has produced double-figure scores in four of his eight appearances for West Ham.

Harry Kane (TOT) £11.7m

The Spurs frontman boasts outstanding form ahead of his home fixture against Man Utd, amassing five goals and two assists in his last four appearances. Kane’s totals of 19 shots and 11 shots in the box are more than any other player in Fantasy during that period. 

Sergio Aguero (MCI) £10.3m

Pep Guardiola’s rotation policy makes the Manchester City striker an intriguing choice against Leeds United. Having been rested from European duties in midweek, Aguero will be fresh to face a team with only one clean sheet in their last 10 away matches.

Kelechi Iheanacho (LEI) £5.8m

The Leicester forward has proved a major source of value in Fantasy, with five goals and 37 points in his last four outings. Iheanacho visits a West Ham side who have managed only one clean sheet in their last six matches.
