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

Gonzalo Higuain (CHE) £9.6m

A modest start for Chelsea has meant the Argentinian has been largely ignored by FPL managers for Double Gameweek 32

Higuain has scored three goals in seven appearances, averaging 4.4 points per match.

He is owned by only 4.2 per cent of managers for his matches with Cardiff City away and Brighton & Hove Albion at home.

Major threat

The underlying statistics, however, suggest that Higuain has been a major goal threat since making his first appearance in Gameweek 24.

His 27 shots from that point on rank second only to the 28 of Mohamed Salah (£13.3m) among all players in FPL.

The Chelsea man’s totals of 19 shots inside the penalty area and 10 chances created also rank among the top five forwards in that period.

Open opponents

Those underlying numbers could help to produce FPL points in Gameweek 32. 

That's because both of his Gameweek 32 opponents have struggled defensively this season and sit in the bottom six of the table.

Cardiff have the third-worst defensive record in the league, conceding 57 goals.

Standout differential

Chelsea beat the Bluebirds 4-1 in the reverse fixture in Gameweek 5.

Brighton, meanwhile, will arrive at Stamford Bridge having managed a single clean sheet away from home this season.

That hands Higuain the platform to get back on the scoresheet, offering Fantasy managers a standout differential pick for the largest Double Gameweek of 2018/19.
