A visit to Burnley can allow Trent Alexander-Arnold (£8.3m) to extend his remarkable run of form in Fantasy Premier League.

The Liverpool right-back has delivered Fantasy returns in nine of his last 10 appearances, producing two goals, three assists, five clean sheets and 12 bonus points. 

His Reds team-mate Mohamed Salah (£13.2m) is named as vice-captain in a best XI that line up in a 3-5-2 formation, with Tottenham Hotspur’s Son Heung-min (£9.8m) handed the armband. 

Neto (Bournemouth) £4.6m

AFC Bournemouth’s No 1 has proven a handy budget pick recently. Neto hosts Fulham on the back of 28 points in his last six outings, combining three clean sheets with three save points and three bonus points. 

Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool) £8.3m

He has created 22 chances in the last four Gameweeks, at least 10 more than any other defender in Fantasy. 

Kieran Trippier (Newcastle Utd) £6.9m

Newcastle United’s right-back hosts Nottingham Forest on the back of a single blank in his previous six appearances at St James’ Park. Trippier amassed 52 points in that run, thanks to three assists, five clean sheets and 13 bonus points.

Pedro Porro (Spurs) £5.5m

His potential for attacking returns makes the Spurs full-back a strong option against Brighton & Hove Albion. Porro’s 12 shots, eight shots in the box and 12 key passes all sit among the top two defenders in Fantasy in the last four Gameweeks.

Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) £13.2m

The Egyptian’s weekend strike against Arsenal took him 15-points clear at the top of the player standings. Salah looks set for another big return at Burnley, who have conceded a league-high 22 goals over their nine home matches. 

Son Heung-min (Spurs) £9.8m

His potential for huge hauls makes the Spurs star a key captain pick against Brighton & Hove Albion, who are the only side yet to keep a clean sheet. Son has delivered six double-figure hauls this term, joint-top with Salah among all players. 

Bukayo Saka (Arsenal) £9.0m

The winger appears to have stepped up his potential for goals recently, with his 11 shots in the box in the last four Gameweeks joint-top for Arsenal. Saka hosts a West Ham United side who have conceded at least three goals in four of their last six on the road.

Richarlison (Spurs) £6.7m

A move up front for Spurs recently has transformed the Brazilian's fortunes in Fantasy. Richarlison has scored four goals and earned 32 points in the last three Gameweeks.

Anthony Gordon (Newcastle) £6.2m

Newcastle's winger has a flawless record at St James’ Park this season, producing attacking returns in all eight of his appearances. Indeed, Gordon is the second top-scoring player in home matches in 2023/24, earning 68 points thanks to five goals and five assists.

Dominic Solanke (Bournemouth) £6.9m

His hat-trick and 17 points against Nott'm Forest at the weekend have made Solanke the top transfer target for managers in Gameweek 19. The Cherries’ frontman has earned 170,000+ new owners and can now be found in over 22 per cent of squads.

Julian Alvarez (Man City) £6.8m

Alvarez gave managers a reminder of his potential with two goals and an assist in Manchester City’s FIFA Club World Cup triumph over Fluminense. If he deputises for Erling Haaland (£13.9m) against Everton, Alvarez can be great value at only £6.8m.
