The Scout says Southampton striker has the fixtures to finish the season strongly

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 35 of Fantasy Premier League.

Danny Ings (SOU) £5.4m

The Southampton striker was one of FPL’s form forwards at the start of the season.

Arriving on loan from Liverpool, Ings scored seven goals in the first 18 Gameweeks before being sidelined through injury.

But he has made a timely return to the teamsheet ahead of the Saints’ Double Gameweek 35 against Newcastle United and Watford.

Striking statistics

The underlying statistics show why Ings can be a vital in Southampton’s push to secure their Premier League safety.

Despite starting just 19 Gameweeks, his total of 20 shots on target is more than any team-mate.

Indeed, his averages of 29.5 minutes per shot and 198.3 minutes per goal are both team-leading figures among Southampton’s regulars.

Form and fixtures

Having won four of their last six matches, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men have the form to take advantage of their favourable upcoming schedule.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Rankings (FDR), all five of the Saints’ final opponents score no more than three.

That includes home matches with AFC Bournemouth and Huddersfield Town and a trip to West Ham United in the final three Gameweeks.

Ings served a reminder of his potential with an assist in a 3-1 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend.

At a cost of just £5.4m, he offers an ideal solution for managers on the lookout for a cut-price striker to see out the season.
