The Scout's essential FPL tips for Gameweek 10

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

Chris Wood (BUR) £6.2m

The Burnley striker has stepped up his output significantly in recent matches.

Wood has scored four goals in the last four Gameweeks, more than any other player in FPL.

His overall threat in terms of attempts on goal is equally impressive.

Wood failed to produce a single goal or assist in the Clarets’ opening five matches.

But the underlying statistics show why the New Zealander has enjoyed such a productive period.

Chris Wood gets off the mark

Wood's total of eight big chances, or situations where he is expected to score, has also been a league-leading figure over Gameweeks 6-9.

Indeed, only three players have had more than four big chances. 

Eye-catching numbers

The Burnley forward has had 11 shots inside the box over the last four Gameweeks, the fifth-highest total, while his seven shots on target have been bettered only by the eight of Tammy Abraham (£7.8m).

When compared with his displays over Gameweeks 1-5, his improving goal threat is obvious.

Wood's shots in the box per appearance have risen from 1.2 to 2.8, and his shots on target are up from 0.4 to 1.8.

Yet he sits in just 1.4 per cent of squads for his home match with Chelsea.

Brittle Blues? 

Frank Lampard’s side have lacked resilience on the road, failing to keep a clean sheet on their travels.

They have conceded nine away goals, a total better than just three other sides.

Wood has the form to profit from that lack of resilience and extend his run of goals on Saturday.
