Gameweek 38 Ones to watch: Jamie Vardy

The Scout says Leicester striker can finish the season with a flourish at home against Chelsea this weekend

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 38 of Fantasy Premier League.

Jamie Vardy (LEI) £9.0m

The Leicester City striker has been transformed since the arrival of Brendan Rodgers as manager.

Vardy scored nine goals and supplied three assists in the first 28 Gameweeks.

But he has since been more productive, contributing nine goals and two assists in his nine appearances under Rodgers.

On target

The underlying statistics highlight Rodgers' impact on Vardy.

His 23 shots inside the penalty area rank fourth among all players in FPL since the manager was appointed in Gameweek 29. 

Vardy has also recorded 13 shots on target in that run, second only to the 18 of Mohamed Salah (£13.3m).

Impressively, his total of 12 big chances is more than any other player.

A big chance is regarded as a situation where the player receiving the pass is expected to score.

Beating the Blues

Vardy has an impressive record against his weekend visitors Chelsea.

The Foxes forward has scored in two of his last three home meetings with the Blues.

He also netted the winner in a 1-0 victory at Stamford Bridge in Gameweek 18.

Unlucky 13

Chelsea arrive at the King Power Stadium having lacked resilience on their travels in recent months.

Maurizio Sarri’s side have just one clean sheet in their last 13 away matches.

Vardy can extend that poor defensive record and deliver more goals for Rodgers’ side on Sunday.
