The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 10 of Fantasy Premier League.

Anthony Martial (MUN) £7.5m

The Manchester United midfielder was a major target for FPL managers at the start of the season.

Martial opened the campaign with back-to-back goals against Chelsea and Wolverhampton Wanderers in his first two fixtures.

By the time his Gameweek 3 home contest with Crystal Palace arrived, the Frenchman had earned over 785,000 transfers in.

Martial's assist against the Eagles justified that interest, taking his tally to 19 points in the first three Gameweeks.

But a hamstring injury then kept him sidelined until last weekend, when he appeared as a late substitute against Liverpool.

Key man

The underlying statistics during his opening three matches highlight Martial's importance to the Red Devils' attack.

His eight shots on goal and five shots inside the box both ranked second for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.

A trip to Norwich City raises Martial's prospects in FPL this Sunday.

The Canaries are without a clean sheet at Carrow Road and have conceded 11 goals at home, more than any other side.

At home, they have allowed 82 shots, 52 shots in the box and 32 shots on target - all league-leading figures.

Encouraging schedule

The Norwich fixture marks the start of a favourable run that hands Martial the chance to make his mark again.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), four of Man Utd's next five opponents score only two.

Should he get on the scoresheet against the Canaries, Martial's upcoming schedule will be difficult to ignore.
