Manchester City, Bernardo Silva

The Scout says the midfielder is a standout creator at home for Manchester City

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 30 of Fantasy Premier League.

Bernardo Silva (MCI) £7.5m

The versatile Portuguese has been a major influence at the Etihad Stadium for Manchester City this season.

Silva has made 15 appearances in home matches, joint-top with goalkeeper Ederson (£5.6m).

His assist against West Ham United in Gameweek 28 means that five of his seven assists in 2018/19 have been at home.

The underlying statistics show the importance of Silva for Pep Guardiola's side.

He has created 37 chances in home fixtures, more than any team-mate.

Indeed, that total is second overall this season, bettered only by the 39 of James Maddison (£6.7m) for Leicester City.

Silva has supplied eight big chances at home, another team-leading figure for Man City.

Only the AFC Bournemouth pair of Ryan Fraser (£6.1m) and Callum Wilson (£6.3m) have created more big chances in home matches this season, with nine apiece.

Silva's impact could prove vital against Watford this weekend, with playmaker Kevin De Bruyne (£9.7m) again sidelined through injury.

Guardiola's team have a fine record against the Hornets, scoring 11 goals in their last three Premier League meetings.

Watford, meanwhile, travel north having conceded five goals to Liverpool in their previous away match.

Owned by only 7.8 per cent of managers, Silva offers a tempting mid-price route into the league leaders' attack.
