A home encounter with AFC Bournemouth gives Bukayo Saka (£8.5m) the chance to deliver more attacking returns in Gameweek 26 of Fantasy Premier League.

TV Info

The Arsenal winger has proven to be a reliable performer at Emirates Stadium this season, blanking in only one of his last eight.

Saka scored six goals and supplied three assists to collect 67 points over that run. 

AFC Bournemouth, meanwhile, have conceded a league-high 48 goals and have recorded only one away clean sheet this term.

Saka takes his place in a 3-4-3 formation, with Manchester City's Erling Haaland (£12.2m) handed the armband and Harry Kane (£11.7m) of Tottenham Hotspur named as vice-captain.

Kepa Arrizabalaga (CHE) £4.7m
Chelsea’s goalkeeper has averaged 6.0 points per start at home this season. Kepa entertains a Leeds United side who have struggled on their travels, failing to score in three of their last four away matches in all competitions.

Gabriel (ARS) £5.2m
The Arsenal centre-back can profit at both ends of the pitch at home to AFC Bournemouth. Gabriel’s 15 shots in the box place joint-fourth among defenders this season, while his visitors have scored one goal in their previous five away contests.

Ben Mee (BRE) £5.0m
Brentford centre-back Mee is the second-top-scoring defender in home matches this season, earning 65 points. He boasts a major threat from set-pieces for the visit of Fulham on Monday.

Emerson Royal (TOT) £4.9m
Spurs' Brazilian offers many routes to returns at Wolverhampton Wanderers. Royal has combined two goals with four clean sheets and eight bonus points over his last six outings.

Bukayo Saka (ARS) £8.5m
The Arsenal winger produced a 12-point haul in his last home appearance in the 4-0 midweek victory over Everton.

Riyad Mahrez (MCI) £7.8m
Manchester City’s Algerian hosts Newcastle United in exceptional home form. Mahrez has amassed 35 points across his last three at the Etihad Stadium, scoring three goals and supplying three assists. 

Marcus Rashford (MUN) £7.2m
The Manchester United star scored and earned 10 points in his last meeting with Liverpool. Rashford is the top-scoring player in Fantasy since the season resumed, earning 89 points thanks to 10 goals and two assists. 

Kaoru Mitoma (BHA) £5.3m
Averaging 6.2 points per home start in his debut Fantasy campaign, Mitoma hosts West Ham United on the back of two goals, an assist and 26 points in his last previous four at the Amex Stadium.

Erling Haaland (MCI) £12.2m
Haaland claimed his eighth double-figure haul of 2022/23 in the 4-1 win at AFC Bournemouth last weekend. He averages 10.0 points per home match and his ownership of 85 per cent will ensure Haaland remains the most-selected captaincy pick for Gameweek 26. 

Harry Kane (TOT) £11.7m
Spurs’ talisman has blanked in only three of his 12 road trips this season, averaging 6.3 points per start. Away from home, Kane’s totals of 44 shots, 31 shots in the box and 19 shots on target all place him among the top two players in Fantasy.

Ivan Toney (BRE) £7.6m
The Brentford forward is the most-bought player in the Gameweek, earning 204,000+ new owners for his home encounter with Fulham. Toney scored and earned eight points in his previous meeting with the Cottagers this season.
