A pair of home encounters with Wolverhampton Wanderers and Manchester United give Solly March (£5.3m) the chance to continue his reliable run of returns in Fantasy Premier League.

The winger is Brighton & Hove Albion’s form player ahead of Double Gameweek 34, with just a single blank in his last six appearances. 

March has scored once and supplied four assists in that run, totalling 34 points.

He is joined by team-mates Pervis Estupinan (£4.8m) and Kaoru Mitoma (£5.6m) in a side that lines up in a 3-5-2 formation, with Erling Haaland (£12.3m) handed the armband and Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) named as vice-captain.

David De Gea (MUN) £5.0m

The Man Utd goalkeeper has four clean sheets in his last six matches ahead of meetings with Aston Villa and Brighton. De Gea also collected three save points and one bonus point in that run, totalling 30 points. 

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) £7.5m

Liverpool’s star has supplied five of his nine assists this season in his last four appearances since moving into midfield.

Alexander-Arnold can also bring in defensive returns over his two DGW34 fixtures, with the Reds welcoming both Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham to Anfield.

John Stones (MCI) £5.5m

The Manchester City star is another Fantasy defender to profit from a recent move into midfield. Stones has two goals and an assist in his last four matches across all competitions, netting against Leicester City and Arsenal to claim 17 points in his previous two league outings.

Pervis Estupinan (BHA) £4.8m

Five assists and seven clean sheets highlight his all-round potential for Brighton’s two home encounters.

Estupinan’s impact down the left has been vital to his side’s attack this season; he has created 36 chances, placing him third among all Seagulls players. 

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £13.0m

Liverpool’s Egyptian has five goals, two assists and 41 points across his last four outings at Anfield.

Salah’s total of 63 shots in home matches is more than any other player in 2022/23 Fantasy, showing his huge armband appeal as a rival to Man City’s Haaland.

Jack Grealish (MCI) £7.3m

The winger has two goals, three assists and 32 points in his previous four appearances.

Grealish has been immune to Pep Guardiola’s rotation lately, starting each of their last 13 league matches ahead of meetings with Fulham and West Ham.

Marcus Rashford (MUN) £7.1m

Rashford is the top-scoring player in Fantasy since Gameweek 17, producing 12 goals, four assists and 124 points.

The England international's 12-point haul against Spurs on Thursday was his eighth double-figure return of 2022/23 Fantasy and helped him move to 186 points, his best-ever FPL campaign.

Kaoru Mitoma (BHA) £5.6m

The Japanese star has blanked in only one of his seven home matches since the season resumed, producing four goals, three assists and 52 points.

Mitoma is the most popular Brighton player by some margin, owned by more than 27 per cent of managers. 

Solly March (BHA) £5.3m

His 22 chances created in the last six Gameweeks are a league-leading total.

Erling Haaland (MCI) £12.3m

His 14-point return against Arsenal in midweek was the Norwegian’s third successive double-figure haul, the first time he has achieved this feat in his remarkable debut campaign.

An ownership of 81 per cent means it will be a brave manager who opts to overlook Haaland for the armband. 

Diogo Jota (LIV) £8.9m

Liverpool’s Portuguese has scored twice and produced double-digit returns in two of his last three appearances.

Although he could have his minutes managed over his two matches, Jota’s ability to deliver big scores still makes him worth the risk as the Reds push for a top-four finish.
