The Nigerian has thrived alongside Jamie Vardy (£10.1m) in a 3-4-1-2 formation, scoring seven goals and earning 50 points in his last five matches.

The underlying numbers highlight Iheanacho’s huge threat ahead of a favourable home fixture against West Bromwich Albion.

His 21 shots, 14 shots in the box and 10 shots on target all put him among the top three players in Fantasy across the last six Gameweeks.

Iheanacho is included in a Selection that lines up in a 3-5-2 formation, with Harry Kane (£11.7m) handed the armband and Son Heung-min (£9.4m) named vice-captain for Tottenham Hotspur's Double Gameweek.

Edouard Mendy (CHE) £5.2m

The goalkeeper offers a secure route into a Chelsea side who have kept five clean sheets in their six home matches under Thomas Tuchel. Mendy can extend that run against a Brighton & Hove Albion side who have only scored once in the last two Gameweeks.

Sergio Reguilon (TOT) £5.5m

The left-back is the most attacking option in Spurs' defence for their matches against Everton and Southampton. Reguilon’s totals of 17 shots and 14 chances created both rank among Spurs' top five players this season.

Luke Shaw (MUN) £5.3m

Manchester United’s left-back provides multiple routes to points at home to Burnley. Shaw has combined a goal and four assists with four clean sheets and nine bonus points over his last 10 appearances.

Romain Saiss (WOL) £4.9m

Wolverhampton Wanders’ centre-back hosts a Sheffield United side who have scored only once across their last five away matches. Saiss scored and claimed his season-high haul of 15 points in his last meeting with the Blades in Gameweek 1.

Bruno Fernandes (MUN) £11.6m

At home, his 52 shots and 53 key passes both put him among the top two players in Fantasy this season. Fernandes has produced a league-leading 11 double-digit hauls ahead of his home match against Burnley.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £12.5m

Liverpool’s Egyptian has produced 12 shots and nine shots in the box over the last two Gameweeks, both league-leading totals. Salah scored a hat-trick and earned 20 points in his last encounter with his hosts, Leeds United

Son Heung-min (TOT) £9.4m

The South Korean is a major armband contender for his two Gameweek 32 fixtures. Son claimed his season-high score of 24 points against Southampton in Gameweek 2, scoring four goals in a 5-2 win at St Mary’s Stadium.

Jesse Lingard (MUN) £6.5m

He has eight goals and four assists in nine matches since joining West Ham United. Lingard visits a Newcastle United side who have kept only one clean sheet at home all season. 

Matheus Pereira (WBA) £5.4m

West Brom’s playmaker has provided an outstanding source of value in Fantasy recently, racking up three goals, two assists and 30 points in the last two Gameweeks. When selected, Pereira has been involved in 61 per cent of his team's goals under Sam Allardyce.

Harry Kane (TOT) £11.7m

The forward heads into Spurs' Double Gameweek in fine form, with five goals and two assists in his last five outings. Kane has recorded 17 shots over the last four Gameweeks, more than any other player. 

Kelechi Iheanacho (LEI) £6.0m

He is the second most-bought player in the Gameweek, earning 375,000+ new owners ahead of Friday’s 18:30 BST deadline.
