Foden visits Aston Villa in a run of consistent form, blanking just once in the last four Gameweeks.

The England midfielder earned 19 points over that period, scoring once and supplying three assists.

Having being withdrawn before the hour mark in Man City’s midweek win over Nottingham Forest, Foden looks set to start against Villa on Saturday. 

He is joined by team-mates Joao Cancelo (£7.1m) and Erling Haaland (£11.9m) in a 4-3-3 formation, with Haaland handed the armband and Raheem Sterling (£10.0m) named as vice-captain. 

Nick Pope (NEW) £5.0m

The Newcastle United No 1 offers many routes to returns at home to Crystal Palace. Pope has amassed 24 points in his first five matches thanks to two clean sheets, five save points and three bonus points. 

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) £7.5m

Liverpool’s right-back is the most-owned defender in Fantasy, found in over 49 per cent of squads ahead of a trip to Everton. Despite blanking in four of his five appearances, Alexander-Arnold’s 17-point haul against AFC Bournemouth in Gameweek 4 highlights his potential for huge scores. 

Joao Cancelo (MCI) £7.1m

Man City’s Portuguese faces Villa as the top-scoring defender in Fantasy. Cancelo has produced 31 points in five appearances, combining a goal and an assist with three clean sheets and four bonus. 

Pervis Estupinan (BHA) £4.5m

Brighton & Hove Albion’s new left-back entertains Leicester City on the back of a clean sheet and an assist in his first two starts. Since making his debut in Gameweek 4, Estupinan’s five key passes rank joint-top for the Seagulls. 

Neco Williams (NFO) £4.1m

The Nottingham Forest wing-back could prove major value against an AFC Bournemouth side who have failed to score in each of their last four matches. Williams’ 11 shots and nine key passes both rank among the top two defenders in Fantasy this term.

Raheem Sterling (CHE) £10.0m

Chelsea's summer signing welcomes West Ham United in strong home form. Sterling has 20 points from his first two outings at Stamford Bridge, scoring twice and supplying an assist. 

Phil Foden (MCI) £8.0m

An ownership of under eight per cent makes Foden a huge differential against Villa.

Dejan Kulusevski (TOT) £8.2m

A home meeting with Fulham looks encouraging for the Tottenham Hotspur winger’s prospects this weekend. Kulusevski has made a team-leading 11 key passes and has totalled 16 points across his two home matches. 

Erling Haaland (MCI) £11.9m

Back-to-back hat-tricks have taken the Norwegian to the top of the player standings on 58 points. Haaland has delivered returns in all five of his appearances in 2022/23 Fantasy and will be a huge armband favourite in Gameweek 6.

Darwin Nunez (LIV) £8.9m

Returning from a three-match suspension for the Merseyside derby, Nunez faces an Everton side without a clean sheet this season. Nunez claimed nine points on his previous road trip for Liverpool, thanks to a goal and an assist at Fulham

Gabriel Jesus (ARS) £8.2m

Arsenal’s Brazilian visits Manchester United on the back of three goals and three assists in the last four Gameweeks. Jesus’ 18 shots in the box and five big chances both rank among the top three players in 2022/23 Fantasy.
