The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 6 of Fantasy Premier League.

Richarlison (EVE) £7.9m

After a slow start to 2019/20, the Everton attacker has stepped up his form ahead of a home match against Sheffield United.

Having blanked in each of the first three Gameweeks, Richarlison has produced two goals and an assist in his last two matches.

That includes a 15-point haul in his previous home match, a 3-2 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers in Gameweek 4.

Richarlison's underlying statistics show he is the Toffees' chief goal threat.

The Brazilian's total of 14 shots is more than any team-mate, with fellow midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.7m) his nearest rival with nine.

And the 22-year-old has recorded 10 shots inside the penalty area, at least double the tally of any other Everton player.

Those numbers also fare well when compared with other FPL midfielders.

Only Raheem Sterling (£12.3m), with 16, and Mohamed Salah (£12.5m), with 13, have produced more shots inside the box.

Overlooked 

Yet, while Sterling and Salah are the two most popular midfielders in FPL with ownerships of 45 per cent and 42.4 per cent respectively, Richarlison has mainly been overlooked.

He sits in only 8.1 per cent of squads ahead of Saturday’s encounter with the Blades.

His upcoming schedule suggests interest in the Brazil international could soon be on the rise.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), six of Everton's next eight opponents score just two.

As the Toffees' standout goal threat, Richarlison can be a big success over the coming Gameweeks.
