GW26 Ones to watch: Christian Eriksen

The Scout says the Spurs playmaker can return to top form at home to Leicester

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 26 of Fantasy Premier League.

Christian Eriksen (TOT) £9.3m

A visit from Leicester City could reignite the Dane’s potential in Fantasy.

Eriksen was a key performer for Tottenham Hotspur over Gameweeks 13 to 21, producing four goals and five assists in nine appearances.

But he has managed just one assist in the last four Gameweeks.

Unlucky numbers

The underlying statistics in those recent fixtures show Eriksen has been unfortunate.

Christian Eriksen Player Profile

His totals of 12 shots and 10 chances created in the last four Gameweeks both rank fourth overall.

Indeed, only one other player, James Maddison (£6.6m), managed double digits for both, with 12 shots and 12 chances created.

Son shadow

The recent form of Spurs’ Son Heung-min (£8.7m) means Eriksen has been largely ignored by FPL managers.

Son is the most-bought player in the Gameweek, with 250,000 transfers in, after scoring in each of the last two matches since returning from the Asian Cup.

Meanwhile, only 6.1 per cent own Eriksen ahead of the Gameweek 26 deadline of 11:30 GMT, Saturday 9 February.

Leicester lapses

Claude Puel’s men travel to Wembley Stadium having struggled to shut out their opponents.

The Foxes have just two clean sheets in the last 11 Gameweeks.

Eriksen can take advantage of that lack of resilience to announce himself as a big differential for the season run-in.
