A Home Encounter Offers a Chance for Saka to Deliver in FPL Gameweek 26
Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka (£8.5m) has the perfect opportunity to rack up good attacking returns in Fantasy Premier League‘s Gameweek 26 as his side face off against AFC Bournemouth at home.
He has been a stable and reliable performer at home, with only one blank in his last eight matches at the Emirates Stadium.
Meanwhile, it is worth noting that the Bournemouth side has so far conceded an alarming 48 goals – the highest in the league – and managed only one clean sheet away from home.
Manchester City‘s Erling Haaland (£12.2m) will captain the team, with Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane (£11.7m) taking the vice-captain position.
Kepa Arrizabalaga (CHE) (£4.7m) of Chelsea, Arsenal’s Gabriel (£5.2m), Brentford’s Ben Mee (£5.0m), Spurs’ Emerson Royal (£4.9m), Brighton’s Kaoru Mitoma (£5.3m) and Brentford’s Ivan Toney (£7.6m) have also been included in the lineup.
Kepa Arrizabalaga has earned an impressive 6.0 points per start at home since the start of the season, and he will host be facing a Leeds United side who have had difficulties scoring, having failed to find the net in three of their last four away matches overall.
Gabriel, on the other hand, has proven effective in both defensive and attacking roles, having made 15 shots in the box and his visitors who have only scored one goal in their last five away trips.
Ben Mee has had a strong season at home, yielding 65 points so far, as he will welcome Fulham to Brentford.
Royale faces a Wolverhampton Wanderers side coming off poor performances and his excellent form for Spurs has seen him pick up two goals, four clean sheets and eight bonus points in the last six matches.
Bukayo Saka already earned 12 points in his last home outing, and his versatile threat should give the Arsenal wing another opportunity for a good score.
Lastly, Mitoma, who averages 6.2 points per start at home in his debut season, hosts West Ham United off the back of two goals, an assist and 26 points in his last four home matches.
