Portuguese one of three Liverpool players picked in best XI captained by Man Utd star

Diogo Jota (£7.6m) offers managers a strong source of value for Liverpool’s visit to Leeds United in Gameweek 4 of Fantasy Premier League.

The Portuguese has scored in both his starts this season and is expected to be recalled to the first XI, with doubts over the fitness of Roberto Firmino (£8.8m).

Jota has been supplied with a team-leading three big chances in the opening three Gameweeks, while his four shots on target are just one behind Mohamed Salah (£12.5m).

Leeds, meanwhile, are still without a clean sheet this term, conceding eight goals in three matches.

Jota and Salah are joined by team-mate Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) in a Liverpool triple-up for Gameweek 4.

Salah earns the vice-captaincy, with Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.5m) handed the armband for the first match on his return to Manchester United.

David Raya (BRE) £4.6m

Brentford’s No 1 has conceded just one goal in the first three Gameweeks. Raya can extend his early season form at home to Brighton & Hove Albion this weekend.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) £7.5m

Liverpool’s right-back can provide multiple routes to returns at Elland Road. Alexander-Arnold has combined an assist with two clean sheets and five bonus points in three appearances.

Lucas Digne (EVE) £5.4m

Everton's left-back offers strong all-round potential at home to Burnley. Digne’s delivery can exploit his visitors’ weakness in defending headed shots – his 23 crosses and six successful crosses are both more than twice any team-mate. 

Kieran Tierney (ARS) £4.9m

A home contest with promoted Norwich City boosts Arsenal’s clean sheet potential. Tierney has created seven chances from his role at left-back, more than double the total of any team-mate.

Diogo Jota (LIV) £7.6m

Six of Jota's last seven goals for Liverpool have come in away matches.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £12.5m

Liverpool’s Egyptian scored a hat-trick and earned 20 points in his last start against Leeds. Salah’s totals of 13 shots, 11 shots in the penalty area and three big chances created are all among the top two players in Fantasy this season.

Mason Mount (CHE) £7.5m

Chelsea’s midfielder offers a strong all-round attacking threat at home to Aston Villa. Mount’s seven shots and three big chances created rank among the top two players for Thomas Tuchel’s side.

Ferran Torres (MCI) £7.1m

The Manchester City midfielder visits Leicester City on the back of two goals and an assist against Arsenal. Playing up front for the champions, Torres has returned hauls of 20 and 18 points in his last four starts. 

Ismaila Sarr (WAT) £6.0m

The winger’s contribution could prove decisive for Watford at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers. Sarr’s eight shots and eight key passes are both team-leading totals.

Cristiano Ronaldo (MUN) £12.5m

More than 1.3 million managers have bought the Portuguese ahead of a home meeting with Newcastle United. Ronaldo scored 81 goals and supplied 16 assists in his three seasons in Serie A with previous club Juventus. 

Michail Antonio (WHU) £7.9m

FPL’s top-scoring player has produced three successive double-digit returns ahead of a visit to Southampton. Antonio has totalled 40 points, thanks to four goals and four assists for West Ham United
