A home encounter with Brentford gives Michael Olise (£5.8m) an opportunity to continue his excellent run of form in Fantasy Premier League.

The Crystal Palace star has amassed 24 points in the last three Gameweeks, scoring against both Manchester City and Chelsea and supplying an assist against Brighton & Hove Albion.

He is picked in a best XI who line up in a 3-5-2 formation, with Mohamed Salah (£13.3m) handed the captain's armband and Son Heung-min (£9.9m) named vice-captain.

David Raya (Arsenal) £4.9m

The Spaniard offers a budget-friendly route into the Arsenal rearguard away to Fulham. Raya, who saved a penalty against West Ham United on Thursday, faces a Cottagers side who have struggled in attack recently, having failed to score in each of their last three matches.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool) £8.4m

Liverpool’s right-back offers huge potential at both ends of the pitch at home to Newcastle United. Alexander-Arnold has produced Fantasy returns in each of his last eight outings, combining two goals and three assists with four clean sheets and 15 bonus points. 

Nathan Ake (Man City) £5.0m

Man City’s defender hosts a Sheffield United side who have scored only five away goals this season. Ake has stepped up his attacking output recently, delivering a goal and two assists in his last five starts in Fantasy.

Alex Moreno (Aston Villa) £5.0m

An injury to his rival Lucas Digne (£4.7m) looks set to hand the Aston Villa left-back his second start of the season at home to Burnley. Moreno scored and earned 10 points in his first start of 2023/24 against Brentford in Gameweek 17.

Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) £13.3m

The Egyptian is the top-scoring player in Fantasy in home matches this season, averaging 8.7 points per appearance at Anfield thanks to nine goals and an assist. Salah faces a Newcastle side who have only one clean sheet on their travels in 2023/24. 

Son Heung-min (Spurs) £9.9m

Tottenham Hotspur’s talisman looks set to rival Salah for the armband at home to AFC Bournemouth. Son has collected 24 points in his last two matches at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, scoring twice and supplying two assists. 

Martin Odegaard (Arsenal) £8.4m

The Norwegian is Arsenal’s top performer in away matches this season, amassing 51 points across his eight starts. Odegaard’s all-round potential can help exploit a Fulham defence that have conceded at least twice in three successive matches. 

Phil Foden (Man City) £7.6m

His 49 points in home matches this season are second only to the 51 points of Erling Haaland (£13.9m) for Man City. Foden has scored in back-to-back matches in all competitions ahead of a very favourable encounter with Sheff Utd.

Michael Olise (Crystal Palace) £5.8m

Olise had six shots in the box against Chelsea in midweek, his best ever tally in a single match.

Ollie Watkins (Aston Villa) £8.8m

Villa’s frontman has disappointed his 51 per cent ownership with just a single goal in five matches. But Watkins can return to form against a Burnley side who have managed just a single clean sheet away from home this season.

Dominic Solanke (Bournemouth) £7.0m

The Bournemouth forward visits Spurs on the back of five goals and 30 points in the last three Gameweeks. Solanke has now scored 12 goals in his first season under Andoni Iraola, double his previous best ever tally in a Premier League campaign.
