A home encounter with Sheffield United gives Jarrod Bowen (£7.1m) the chance to extend his run of form in Fantasy Premier League.

TV Info

The West Ham United star struck his fourth goal of the season against Liverpool last weekend and sits just five points off the top of the midfielder standings on 39 points.

His visitors, meanwhile, arrive on the back of an 8-0 home loss to Newcastle United last weekend.

Bowen takes his place in a team that line up in a 3-5-2 formation, with Erling Haaland (£14.1m) retaining the armband and Carlton Morris (£5.6m) named vice-captain for Luton Town’s Double Gameweek.

Scout Selection: Best FPL team for Gameweek 7
Alphonse Areola (West Ham) £4.2m

Areola places joint-second among goalkeepers on 26 points. He can bring in more returns against a Sheff Utd side who have scored only once in their last two outings.

Kieran Trippier (Newcastle) £6.6m

Newcastle's right-back boasts strong potential at both ends of the pitch at home to Burnley. Trippier recorded his career-high haul of 18 points in Gameweek 6, combining three assists with a clean sheet and three bonus. 

Ben White (Arsenal) £5.5m

The right-back has helped Arsenal keep a clean sheet in their last two away matches in all competitions. White visits an AFC Bournemouth side who have scored just a single goal in their three home matches this season.

Issa Kabore (Luton) £4.0m

Luton’s wing-back offers excellent budget potential for their fixtures against Everton and Burnley. Kabore supplied an assist against Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend and has created three big chances, placing him joint-second among all defenders in Fantasy.

Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) £12.5m

Liverpool’s talisman visits Tottenham Hotspur in outstanding form, producing returns in each of his first six matches. Salah can continue that run against a Spurs side who have conceded five goals in their last three matches.

Son Heung-min (Spurs) £9.2m

A move up front for Spurs has transformed the South Korean’s prospects in 2023/24 Fantasy. Son has scored all five of his goals this season in the last three Gameweeks, amassing 36 points in that run.

Martin Odegaard (Arsenal) £8.5m

The Norwegian’s influence on the Arsenal attack could be even more vital against Bournemouth if Bukayo Saka (£8.7m) fails to recover from a knock. Away from home, Odegaard was the second top-scoring player in Fantasy last term, averaging 6.4 points per start.

Jarrod Bowen (West Ham) £7.1m

Bowen’s 16 shots, 12 shots in the box, five big chances and eight shots on target are all team-leading totals for West Ham.

Anthony Gordon (Newcastle) £5.6m

Newcastle’s winger hosts Burnley on the back of two double-figure hauls in the last four Gameweeks. Gordon has yet to blank at St James’ Park this term, averaging 6.3 points per match over his three home outings. 

Erling Haaland (Man City) £14.1m

The Norwegian will be fully refreshed for Manchester City’s visit to Wolves after being rested for their EFL Cup clash with Newcastle in midweek. Haaland scored a hat-trick and collected 17 points in his last meeting with Wolves.

Carlton Morris (Luton) £5.6m

The forward has been involved in all three of Luton’s goals this season, scoring two and assisting one. Morris has averaged 5.2 points per match, placing him joint-fourth among forwards in 2023/24.
