The Argentinian visits Sheffield United in fine early-season form.
Alvarez is picked in a 3-4-3 formation, with Haaland retaining the armband and Bukayo Saka (£8.6m) named vice-captain.
Andre Onana (Man Utd) £5.0m
Ben Chilwell (Chelsea) £5.7m
The Chelsea defender offers multiple routes to returns at home to Luton Town. Chilwell claimed an assist in his previous outing at Stamford Bridge in Gameweek 1, while his three shots in the box place joint-second for the Blues.
Pervis Estupinan (Brighton) £5.2m
Brighton & Hove Albion’s left-back is the top-scoring defender in Fantasy on the back of a goal and two assists in his first two matches. Estupinan has soared to over 62 per cent ownership for the Seagulls’ home encounter with West Ham United.
Pedro Porro (Spurs) £4.9m
A visit to AFC Bournemouth lifts the potential of Tottenham Hotspur’s right-back. Porro averaged 4.4 points per start last season, combining three goals and three assists with two clean sheets and five bonus points in those 13 outings.
Marcus Rashford (Man Utd) £9.0m
Although he is yet to score this season, the Man Utd star’s seven shots in the box are more than any other midfielder in Fantasy. Rashford delivered a goal, an assist and 14 points at home to Nott’m Forest last campaign, one of seven double-figure hauls he claimed at Old Trafford.
Bukayo Saka (Arsenal) £8.6m
The Arsenal winger hosts Fulham on the back of a 10-point haul in his last home appearance. The Cottagers have conceded 29 shots in the box and nine big chances in the first two Gameweeks. Both those totals put them among the bottom three sides.
Bryan Mbeumo (Brentford) £6.7m
The Brentford star is the most-bought player in Gameweek 3, earning more than 800,000 new owners. Mbeumo has scored two of his three goals from penalties and his dominance of spot-kick duties makes him a strong all-round asset at home to Crystal Palace.
Kaoru Mitoma (Brighton) £6.6m
Brighton’s Japanese sits in over 43 per cent of squads after producing a goal and two assists in his opening two appearances. The Seagulls won the corresponding match against West Ham 4-0 in 2022/23, with Mitoma claiming 13 points thanks to a goal, an assist and two bonus points.
Erling Haaland (Man City) £14.0m
The Norwegian’s ownership now stands at an incredible 91.2 per cent for his visit to Sheff Utd. Haaland scored twice and claimed 13 points in his last away match, against Burnley on the opening day of the season.
Nicolas Jackson (Chelsea) £7.0m
A home encounter with Luton gives Chelsea’s summer signing the perfect opportunity to earn his first attacking returns in Fantasy. Jackson’s six shots in the box are at least twice the total of any team-mate.
Julian Alvarez (Man City) £6.6m
An ownership of just over eight per cent makes the Argentinian an ideal differential route into Man City’s attack.
