Arsenal and Manchester City Dumped Out of the Champions League!

Best Players for Gameweek 26 Based on Head-to-Head Records

The new round of Premier League is ahead. With that in mind and with the help of Fantasy Football Scout, we have dug into the data and plucked out some of best players for Gameweek 26 based on head-to-head records.

Taking a look back at the head-to-head data to find some of the best players for Gameweek 26 could be really helpful to managers. Picking out assets who have great records against their upcoming opponent can help with transfers, captaincy and even chip strategy.

Note: You can find all of the best players in each position for the round ahead based on current data in our FPL Top Picks for Gameweek 26 article.

Bruno Fernandes v Fulham

Manchester United come into their game against Fulham in fine form. The Reds have won four league matches on the bounce whilst racking up between 2-4 goals scored in all of them.

Bruno Fernandes (£8.2m) seems to be lacking in terms of output this season. However, with two returns in his last four matches, he could be gaining some momentum.

As we can see in the graphic below, Bruno Fernandes picked up a cool 16 points against Fulham last season. His points were helped by one goal and one assist. He also scored in both of his 2020 matches against the Cottagers as well which strengthens his record against them.

Phil Foden

Manchester City need to make up points after their recent slip against Chelsea last week. They will have to overcome a tricky Bournemouth who have impressed for parts of the current campaign.

Whilst Manchester City are brimming with super talent, it’s their Englishman Phil Foden (£8.1m) who has the most potential according last season’ data. As we can see in the two matches Foden faced the Cherries he produced an impressive two goals and two assists.

Erling Haaland

Joining his teammate on the list is Erling Haaland (£14.4m). The Norwegian also had some success against Bournemouth last season. In the two matches Haaland faced the Cherries he collected 15 points due to one goal, two assists and one bonus point.

Bukayo Saka v Newcastle

Arsenal are looking scintillating recently, especially in front of goal. In fact the Gooners have racked up five or more goals in half of their last six league matches.

One player contributing to the above form and having an excellent season overall is Bukayo Saka (£9m). In terms of his recent output the England international has registered six goals and one assist in his last five matches.

As we can see, Saka managed three returns in the four matches he played against Newcastle in-between 2019-2021. His returns came from two goals, one assist and one bonus point.
