The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 32 of Fantasy Premier League.

Ashley Young (MUN) £5.7m

The Manchester United full-back could bring in points at both ends of the pitch in Double Gameweek 32.

Young has produced a goal, two clean sheets and 23 FPL points in his last five Gameweek appearances.

Yet only 2.1 per cent of managers own him for his matches against Watford at home and Wolverhampton Wanderers away.

Top-five defender

Young looks likely to add to his three FPL assists over the season run-in. 

Since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first match as caretaker manager in Gameweek 18, he has created 18 goalscoring chances. 

That total is second only to the 22 of Paul Pogba (£8.9m). 

Indeed, Young has averaged a key pass every 52 minutes under Solskjaer compared with one every 77 minutes prior to Gameweek 18.

Furthermore, his 17 successful crosses in that period are more than any team-mate and well clear of the six completed by the next-best United player Luke Shaw (£5.1m).

It all means that Young ranks among the top five FPL defenders for chances created and successful crosses between Gameweeks 18 and 31.

Shot-shy opponents

The underlying statistics of United's upcoming opponents boost Young's appeal even further.

While Watford and Wolves occupy eighth and seventh place respectively, they have struggled for a goal threat of late.

Indeed, they both rank among the bottom five sides for shots in their last six matches, with 37 and 62 respectively.

Combined with his creativity, Young’s prospects for clean sheets can help steer him to a very profitable Double Gameweek.
