The Scout says Fulham forward is back in form for Cardiff encounter

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 36 of Fantasy Premier League.

Aleksandar Mitrovic (FUL) £6.3m

The striker has helped Fulham to wins over Everton and AFC Bournemouth in the last two Gameweeks.

Mitrovic provided an assist against the Toffees and converted a penalty in a 1-0 victory at Vitality Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

That has earned him attacking returns in back-to-back matches for the first time since Gameweek 4.

Growing threat

The underlying statistics further highlight Mitrovic's major goal threat under new manager, Scott Parker.

The Serb has produced 27 shots and 20 shots inside the penalty area since Parker was appointed in Gameweek 29.

Both those totals are more than any other player in FPL over their last six matches.

Shooting star

Mitrovic also fares well when compared with his early-season displays.

His minutes per shot have improved from 25.7 to 20.0 under Parker.

Similarly, his shots inside the penalty area have climbed from 2.5 to 3.3 per match, while his shots on target have increased from 1.2 to 1.8.

Heading for points?

Mitrovic can extend his form at home to Cardiff City in Gameweek 36.

The Bluebirds have struggled to defend set-pieces this season. They have conceded 156 shots from such situations, more than any other side.

Meanwhile, Mitrovic's 52 headed shots on goal sit first among all players.

He looks poised to take advantage of Cardiff's frailties and enjoy more success on Saturday afternoon.

Remember, this week's FPL deadline is 19:00 BST on Friday 26 April.
