A home encounter with Luton Town gives Kai Havertz (£7.2m) the ideal opportunity to deliver yet another big haul in Gameweek 31 of Fantasy Premier League.

Arsenal’s German has produced all three of his double-figure scores this season over the last five Gameweeks, earning 50 points thanks to four goals and three assists.

Havertz is picked in a best XI that lines up in a 3-5-2 formation, with Mohamed Salah (£13.3m) handed the armband and Erling Haaland (£14.3m) named as vice-captain.

FPL GW31 Scout Selection
Martin Dubravka (Newcastle) £4.2m

At a cost of just £4.2m in Fantasy, the Newcastle United goalkeeper can offer big value at home to Everton. The Toffees visit St James’ Park in poor attacking form on the road, scoring only two goals in their last seven away matches across all competitions.

Gabriel (Arsenal) £5.3m

Two goals, an assist and five clean sheets in his last nine matches highlight the centre-back’s major all-round potential at home to Luton. Gabriel’s two goals, 11 shots, 10 shots in the box and seven shots on target all rank among the top two defenders from Gameweek 21 onwards.

Antonee Robinson (Fulham) £4.6m

The Fulham defender can enjoy another productive meeting with Nottingham Forest on Tuesday evening. Robinson earned one of his seven clean sheets this season against his hosts in Gameweek 15, while he has also supplied six assists from his left-back berth for Marco Silva's side.

Conor Bradley (Liverpool) £4.2m

Liverpool’s right-back boasts a strong attacking threat for his home encounter with Sheffield United. In his last six matches, Bradley’s 13 key passes rank second in his position in Fantasy, while his six shots in the box are more than any other Reds defender.

Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) £13.3m

His underlying statistics from Liverpool’s weekend win over Brighton & Hove Albion show why Salah will be a big contender for the captaincy against Sheff Utd. Although he scored only once against the Seagulls, the Egyptian had 12 shots and nine shots in the box, both more than any other player in the Gameweek.

Son Heung-min (Spurs) £10.1m

His 10-point haul against Luton at the weekend was the Tottenham Hotspur star’s eighth double-figure haul of the season. Notably, five of those were recorded in away matches, highlighting Son’s prospects as a captaincy contender against West Ham United.

Bukayo Saka (Arsenal) £9.0m

Arsenal’s winger has a flawless record against promoted clubs this season, producing attacking returns in all five such matches. Saka amassed 38 points over those encounters, scoring twice and supplying five assists.

Luis Diaz (Liverpool) £7.5m

If you’re looking to double up on the Liverpool attack, the Colombian’s home form suggests he is a better option than Darwin Nunez (£7.5m). Diaz has 40 points over his previous appearances five outings at Anfield, thanks to four goals, an assist and just a single blank. 

Kai Havertz (Arsenal) £7.2m

Havertz hosts a Luton side who have conceded more goals, shots in the box and big chances in away matches than any other team this season.

Erling Haaland (Man City) £14.3m

A visit from Aston Villa can allow the Manchester City talisman to immediately bounce back from his blank against Arsenal last weekend. In home matches this season, Haaland’s 50 shots in the box are more than any other player in Fantasy.

Rodrigo Muniz (Fulham) £4.7m

Fulham’s Brazilian visits Nott'm Forest on the back of eight goals and an assist in his last eight matches. Since securing a starting role for the Cottagers in Gameweek 23, Muniz is the top-scoring player in Fantasy on 63 points.
