City v Spurs: FPL Gameweek 26 Scout Report
Find out who the Scout has tipped for Fantasy Premier League success ahead of City's clash with Tottenham.

Pep Guardiola's men welcome Spurs to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday 19 February, with kick-off scheduled for 17:30 (UK).

City are aiming to extend our unbeaten Premier League run to an impressive 16 matches, but know we'll need to be at our best to overcome Antonio Conte's side.

The visitors will be desperate to bring an end to a three-match winless run in the English top flight and get their bid for a top four finish back on track when they travel north.

It leaves FPL managers with some difficult decisions to make ahead of Saturday's 11:00 deadline.

However, rest assured that the Scout is on hand to provide one City player, one opponent and another Premier League star they're tipping for success in Gameweek 26.

Check out the latest FPL Scout Report below...

City Star

Phil Foden (£7.9m) has the form to bring in a big return as Manchester City host Tottenham Hotspur in Gameweek 26 of Fantasy Premier League.

Playing as a “false 9”, the midfielder has scored in back-to-back matches in all competitions, earning eight points against Norwich City last weekend.

Having been replaced around the hour-mark in City’s 5-0 win over Sporting Lisbon in the UEFA Champions League in midweek, Foden will be fully refreshed for Saturday evening’s encounter with Antonio Conte’s side.

The England star has averaged 6.1 points per start in Fantasy this season yet is owned by a mere 6.7% of managers.

That suggests Foden can prove a major differential against a Spurs side who are without a clean sheet in their previous eight matches in all competitions.

Opponent to watch

Harry Kane (£10.7m) boasts the visitors’ main goal threat, the forward’s 21 shots, 13 shots in the box and eight shots on target in his last four matches are all league-leading totals.

Other Premier League Pick

Elsewhere, Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£8.5m) both offer strong captaincy options for Liverpool’s two home fixtures against Norwich City and Leeds United.

Salah produced 25 points in his two meetings with those sides earlier this season.

Alexander-Arnold is Liverpool’s top-scoring player at Anfield in 2021/22, averaging 8.6 points per match.
