Man City winger can earn more double-figures at home to Southampton

A rested Phil Foden (£8.1m) is one of the very few players who could outscore Erling Haaland (£12.2m) in Gameweek 10 of Fantasy Premier League.

The midfielder was an unused substitute in Manchester City's win over Copenhagen in the UEFA Champions League in midweek, boosting his chances of starting at home to Southampton.

Foden's hat-trick in last weekend's Manchester derby took his tally to four goals, two assists and 37 points in his last five outings.

But it will be a brave manager who picks anyone other than Haaland.

The Norwegian is averaging 12.0 points per match in his debut campaign and hosts Southampton on the back of three successive home hat-tricks.

Over 5.6 million managers handed the armband to Haaland in Gameweek 9 and that figure is likely to increase this weekend.

Nonetheless, it is worth noting he has only been the top-scoring player in a Gameweek on two occasions this season, Gameweeks 9 and 5, respectively.

Strong contenders

Harry Kane (£11.4m) is another in-form alternative to Haaland. The Tottenham Hotspur forward has attacking returns in seven successive outings ahead of his visit to Brighton & Hove Albion.

Midfield trio James Maddison (£8.1m), Wilfried Zaha (£7.3m) and Jarrod Bowen (£8.1m) also have the potential for major hauls.

Leicester City's Maddison visits AFC Bournemouth on the back of three goals, an assist and 25 points in the last two Gameweeks.

Zaha has three goals and 21 points in his last three home matches ahead of Crystal Palace's home meeting with Leeds United.

Bowen, meanwhile, looks back to his best for West Ham United's home encounter with Fulham

His 11 shots in the box from Gameweek 5 onwards are more than any other midfielder in Fantasy.

Finally, Reece James' (£6.1m) midweek display against AC Milan in the UEFA Champions League highlights his potential for Chelsea's home match against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The wing-back produced a goal, an assist and a clean sheet in the 3-0 win.
