The Scout says Leicester City star is one of the top armband alternatives to Salah

Jamie Vardy (£10.6m) could be among the best alternatives to Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) for the captaincy in Gameweek 13 of Fantasy Premier League.

The Leicester City forward has frustrated his owners with a run of four straight blanks.

But Vardy has a reliable record against weekend opponents Watford, scoring in four of his previous five meetings with them.

At home, the forward’s 17 shots, 15 shots in the box and seven shots on target all rank top for Leicester. 

Watford, meanwhile, are among only two sides who have yet to keep a clean sheet this season.

Auba to deliver at home again?

Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£9.9m) has scored in four of his five home starts ahead of a visit from Newcastle United to Emirates Stadium.

The Gabonese produced 27 points in his two matches against the Magpies last term, thanks to three goals and an assist.

Tottenham Hotspur duo Harry Kane (£12.2m) and Son Heung-min (£10.4m) also have strong records against their opponents, Burnley.

Kane has 30 points across his last three trips to Turf Moor, while Son has returned double-figure hauls in each of his last three encounters with the Clarets.

Explosive full-backs

Full-backs Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.8m), Reece James (£6.1m) and Joao Cancelo (£6.6m) all have home fixtures to bring in big returns.

Liverpool's Alexander-Arnold faces Southampton on the back of five double-figure returns in 10 appearances. 

Chelsea wing-back James plays Manchester United having produced 53 points in the last four Gameweeks.

Meanwhile, Cancelo’s 27 shots are a team-leading total ahead of Manchester City’s home contest against West Ham United
