After Rasmus Hojlund (£7.2m) was ruled out for two to three weeks, The Scout provides Fantasy Premier League managers with the best replacements for the Manchester United star.

Hojlund, who has picked up a muscle injury, is the most transferred-in player ahead of Blank Gameweek 26 (BGW26) after being snapped up by 407,000+ FPL bosses.

Here are The Scout's top picks to replace the injured Hojlund.

Ivan Toney (Brentford) £8.2m

Brentford’s Toney offers an immediate solution to help managers navigate the tricky upcoming period.

The Bees visit West Ham United in BGW26, while their trip to Burnley is one of only three matches currently confirmed in Blank Gameweek 29 (BGW29).

Toney has the form to make an immediate impact against a Hammers side who have conceded 14 goals in their last six matches.

He produced four goals and an assist in the same period, with his eight big chances ranking second among all players in Fantasy.

Dominic Solanke (Bournemouth) £6.9m

Solanke is another ready-made replacement, with the AFC Bournemouth forward bound to be a major target for Double Gameweek 28 (DGW28).

Although the Cherries face a testing home meeting with Manchester City in BGW26, they will play all three promoted sides over Gameweeks 27-28.

Crucially, Solanke also offers managers an armband solution in DGW28. In a Gameweek when Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) and Erling Haaland (£14.4m) go head-to-head at Anfield, Bournemouth play at home to both Sheffield United and Luton Town.

Other options

Managers could also consider Carlton Morris (£5.0m) after Luton’s BGW26 has passed, as the Hatters are the only other side who play twice in DGW28. Morris has four goals and two assists in his last six matches.

Brighton & Hove Albion’s Danny Welbeck (£5.7m) offers a differential option for managers who are looking for a short-term solution before playing their Free Hit chip in BGW29.

Welbeck, currently owned by one per cent of managers, has produced attacking returns in three successive appearances for the first time this season, with a goal and two assists.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), each of the Seagulls’ next three matches score only two.
