GW11 Ones to watch: Andriy Yarmolenko

The Scout says the West Ham winger can extend run of home points against Newcastle on Saturday

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 11 of Fantasy Premier League.

Andriy Yarmolenko (WHU) £6.0m

The West Ham United winger has proven to be a reliable source of returns in home fixtures.

Yarmolenko scored against Norwich City and Manchester United at London Stadium in Gameweeks 4 and 6 respectively.

He also provided an assist in last weekend's 1-1 draw with Sheffield United.

Indeed, he has averaged 7.0 points per home match ahead of a visit from Newcastle United.

Shooting star

The underlying statistics highlight Yarmolenko's all-round potential for points.

At home, his nine shots on goal are joint-top with Sebastien Haller (£7.4m) for the Hammers. His eight key passes are also more than any team-mate.

In particular, the Ukrainian's goal threat has been more impressive when playing at London Stadium.

He has averaged 1.8 shots inside the penalty area compared with 0.6 on the road.

Chance creator

Yarmolenko also appears to have stepped up his supply line in recent matches.

He has created six big chances in the last four Gameweeks.

Apart from the four of Raheem Sterling (£12.1m), no other player in FPL has managed more than three. 

Porous Newcastle

Newcastle travel to London Stadium having lacked resilience on the road.

Steve Bruce's side have conceded 12 goals in their five away matches, the second-worst record in the Premier League.

Away from home, the Magpies have allowed 62 shots inside the box and 15 big chances. Both those totals rank among the bottom four sides.

That lifts Yarmolenko's potential to deliver more FPL points and continue his impressive home form.
