Man City midfielder is among five top Fantasy picks for Gameweek 17

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 17 of Fantasy Premier League.

Phil Foden (MCI) £8.0m
MCI 7-0 LEE

A home encounter with Leeds United lifts Foden's (£8.0m) prospects of delivering a bumper points return in Fantasy Premier League.

The midfielder featured only as a substitute in Manchester City's weekend win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

That suggests Foden is set to start against Leeds on Tuesday, having been restricted to just eight starts, and a further two appearances off the bench, this season.

Foden has scored three goals and supplied three assists over those outings.

Indeed, when selected, he has been involved in 35 per cent of Man City's goals, compared with the 31 per cent of his highly-owned team-mate Bernardo Silva (£7.7m).

Leeds, meanwhile, have been in poor away form all season, managing just a single clean sheet on their travels.

Lucas Moura (TOT) £6.4m

The winger has blanked in only one of his last three appearances for Tottenham Hotspur's new head coach Antonio Conte.

Lucas has earned 17 points in that period, thanks to a goal and an assist.

His growing influence can help Spurs exploit a Leicester City side who have struggled in defence this season.

Prior to their 4-0 win over Newcastle United last weekend, the Foxes had conceded in 14 successive Gameweeks. 

Romelu Lukaku (CHE) £11.5m
CHE 1-1 EVE

The Chelsea striker stepped up his fitness with a goal on his first start since mid-October against Zenit St Petersburg in the UEFA Champions League last week. 

After playing only three minutes against Leeds on Saturday, Lukaku will be fresh for the visit of an Everton side who have been poor defensively on the road. 

The Toffees have lost each of their last four away matches, conceding nine goals in that run.

Marc Cucurella (BHA) £5.0m
BHA 0-1 WOL

Brighton & Hove Albion's wing-back offers multiple routes to returns at home to Wolves.

Cucurella has two clean sheets and six bonus points in his last four outings at Amex Stadium.

Since making his debut in Gameweek 4, his 18 chances created rank second for Brighton.

Martin Odegaard (ARS) £5.4m
ARS 2-0 WHU

A recent return to the Arsenal first XI has revived the playmaker's prospects in Fantasy.

Odegaard has started each of the last four Gameweeks, scoring against Man Utd, Everton and Southampton.

The underlying numbers highlight his all-round threat for the Gunners' home match against West Ham United

Odegaard's six shots in the box and 10 chances created are both team-leading totals in Arsenal's previous three matches.
