The Scout continues a series on the players offering the biggest potential for Fantasy Premier League points from set-pieces.
A summer move to Manchester United appears to have raised the centre-back's goal threat.
|Player||Set-piece shots||Set-piece headed shots||Direct free-kick shots||Set-piece goals|
Maguire’s aerial presence has been a big factor in such situations. Eight of his attempts have been headed shots.
Although Maguire has failed to score this term, he has upped his threat considerably from free-kicks and corners.
He totalled 21 shots and 15 headed shots for Leicester City last season, scoring two of his three goals from such situations.
Maguire has also improved his creative potential this term.
His tally of eight key passes is only three fewer than his 11 from 2018/19.
Only 12.4 per cent of FPL managers own Maguire. But a kind run of upcoming matches could raise his appeal.
According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), five of Man Utd's next seven matches score just two.
That schedule boosts Maguire’s chances of delivering at both ends of the pitch up to and including the festive period.
