The Scout says FPL managers are rushing to the in-form Manchester United forward

The popularity of Marcus Rashford (£7.3m) in Fantasy Premier League continues to grow for Sunday's trip to Tottenham Hotspur.

The Manchester United striker is the most-bought player in Gameweek 22, earning more than 205,000 new owners.

He has three goals, two assists and 31 FPL points in four matches under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Wilson swap

Over 35,000 of Rashford’s new owners have made the direct swap from Callum Wilson (£6.7m).

The AFC Bournemouth forward is a doubt for their trip to Everton, along with his team-mate Ryan Fraser (£6.1m).

And Wilson’s upcoming schedule could persuade more of his 29.3 per cent owners to seek alternatives.

Tricky schedule

AFC Bournemouth will face seven of the top 11 sides over the next eight Gameweeks.

Rashford has a very favourable schedule with five of Man Utd’s seven matches between Gameweeks 23 and 29 scoring just two in the Fixture Difficulty Rankings (FDR).

Should he secure his starting place ahead of Romelu Lukaku (£10.7m), Rashford can become the go-to mid-price forward for FPL managers.
