The Scout says playmaker will be Everton’s main threat at home against Chelsea

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 31 of Fantasy Premier League.

Gylfi Sigurdsson (EVE) £7.3m

The Everton midfielder's ability to deliver explosive points hauls has been key to his successful season in Fantasy.

Sigurdsson has served up five double-digit returns and lies seventh among the highest-scoring FPL midfielders on 140 points.

And that includes his season-high tally of 16 points as recently as Gameweek 28.

Primary threat

At home, Sigurdsson is Everton’s joint-top scorer ahead of Sunday’s visit from Chelsea.

The Iceland international and Richarlison (£6.5m) have five goals each at Goodison Park.

Yet he has been largely overlooked, sitting in just 7.3 per cent of squads compared with the Brazilian’s 17.5 per cent ownership.

The underlying statistics indicate that it is Sigurdsson who will carry the main threat for the Merseysiders.

At home, his 40 shots on goal and 32 chances created are both more than any team-mate.

Those figures also stack up well when compared with other FPL midfielders. Both are among the top 10 totals.

Bruised Blues

Chelsea, meanwhile, have lacked defensive resilience on their travels. 

Maurizio Sarri’s men have managed just one clean sheet in their last nine away matches.

Furthermore, they have lost three of their last four fixtures on the road, conceding 13 goals in that run.

Sigurdsson's all-round potential suggests he can supply another big score this weekend.
