Wilfried Zaha (£7.5m) has the home form to offer a strong captaincy option for managers in the reduced Gameweek 12 of Fantasy Premier League.

The Crystal Palace attacker entertains Wolverhampton Wanderers on the back of three goals and an assist in his last four matches at Selhurst Park.

He has amassed 26 points in that run, blanking on just one occasion.

Zaha’s armband appeal is boosted by a Blank Gameweek for Manchester City, whose forward Erling Haaland (£12.2m) has been the most-selected captain in each round of matches since Gameweek 5.

Home stars offer value?

Newcastle United’s Kieran Trippier (£5.7m) and Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.7m) have also been reliable picks at home.

Trippier has averaged 6.6 points per match (ppm) at St James’ Park ahead of his encounter with Everton.

Mitrovic has scored five of his seven goals at Craven Cottage this term and entertains Aston Villa.

Salah back in favour?

Mohamed Salah (£12.7m) will be a popular choice for Liverpool’s home match with West Ham United.

The Egyptian is the most-bought player in the Gameweeks, earning 585,000 new owners on the back of four goals in his last two matches in all competitions.

He also boasts a prolific record against the Hammers, scoring in four of his five meetings at Anfield.

Leandro Trossard (£6.9m) and Mason Mount (£7.7m) provide further options among midfielders in Fantasy.

Trossard has hauls of 12 and 20 points in his last four matches for Brighton & Hove Albion and is at home to Nottingham Forest.

Mount travels to Brentford on the back of two goals, two assists and 27 points in his last two outings for Chelsea.

Unstoppable Kane

Harry Kane (£11.4m) can continue his fine run of returns as Tottenham Hotspur face Manchester United.

The striker has attacking returns in each of his last nine appearances, averaging 7.8ppm since Gameweek 2.

GW12 deadline: 18:00 BST, Tue 18 Oct
