A rested Phil Foden (£8.3m) has the home form to deliver another huge haul in Gameweek 18 of Fantasy Premier League.

The Manchester City star is the top-scoring midfielder in home matches this season, producing 58 of his 77 points at the Etihad Stadium.

He has amassed 39 points in his last three home starts, scoring five goals and supplying an assist.

After featuring as a second-half substitute in the 3-1 win at Leeds United on Wednesday, Foden looks set to return to Pep Guardiola’s line-up for Saturday's home meeting with Everton.

The 22-year-old is among three Man City players picked in a best XI that line up in a 3-4-3 formation, with Erling Haaland (£12.2m) handed the armband and Harry Kane (£11.6m) named vice-captain.

Bernd Leno (FUL) £4.5m

The Fulham goalkeeper is in excellent form ahead of his home fixture against Southampton. Leno has 26 points over his last three appearances at Craven Cottage, combining two clean sheets with five save points and eight bonus points. 

Kieran Trippier (NEW) £5.9m

Newcastle United’s right-back has produced returns in each of his eight home outings this term. Trippier entertains Leeds United on the back of three double-figure hauls and 42 points in his last four matches. 

Kyle Walker (MCI) £4.8m

The full-back was another Man City player who was rested at Leeds and is likely to return to their starting line-up in Gameweek 18. Walker welcomes an Everton side who have failed to score in their last four away matches.

Ben White (ARS) £4.7m

The right-back provides a cut-price route into Arsenal’s defence for the trip to Brighton & Hove Albion. White has four clean sheets and an assist in his last five away outings, claiming 31 points. 

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £12.8m

Liverpool’s Egyptian has the form to provide a strong armband alternative to Haaland and Kane. Salah entertains Leicester City on the back of four goals, an assist and 36 points across his last four matches.

Phil Foden (MCI) £8.3m

He has scored six of his seven goals this season and supplied all four of his assists in home matches.

Marcus Rashford (MUN) £6.8m

His 14-point haul in the 3-0 victory over Nottingham Forest has made the Manchester United star the top target among midfielders for Gameweek 18. Rashford has earned 300,000+ new owners for the Red Devils’ trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Miguel Almiron (NEW) £5.9m

The top-scoring midfielder in Fantasy has blanked only once in his last nine matches. Almiron has two double-figure scores in his last three outings at St James’ Park.

Erling Haaland (MCI) £12.2m

The Norwegian is averaging 11.7 points per home start in his debut Fantasy campaign. Haaland claimed his sixth double-figure haul of the season at Leeds in midweek and an ownership of over 84 per cent means he will again be the runaway captain pick for Gameweek 18.

Harry Kane (TOT) £11.6m

Tottenham Hotspur's talisman welcomes Aston Villa in prolific home form. Kane has scored in each of his last seven home outings, amassing 61 points thanks to seven goals, two assists and 14 bonus points. 

Aleksandar Mitrovic (FUL) £6.9m

The Serb is the most-bought player in the Gameweek, earning 450,000+ new owners for the home encounter with Southampton. Mitrovic delivered his season-high score of 15 points last time out, thanks to a goal and two assists in the 3-0 win at Crystal Palace.

Don't forget the GW18 deadline is 18:15 GMT on Friday 30 December.
