GW18 Final call: Pukki fit to keep scoring

Norwich City v Manchester City - Premier League

The Scout says home form of Norwich striker marks him out as a good candidate for the festive schedule

The in-form Teemu Pukki (£6.6m) provides Fantasy Premier League managers with a tempting option up front over the busy festive period.

Norwich City's front man has recovered from a toe problem and is available to face Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday afternoon.

Pukki has stepped up his output in recent matches for the Canaries.

Back on song

He has scored in three of the last four Gameweeks, netting against Arsenal, Southampton and Leicester City.

The Finn has been particularly reliable when playing at home this season.

Pukki has averaged 6.9 points per match at Carrow Road, compared with 4.2 ppm on his travels. The underlying statistics show why.

Home comforts

At home, Pukki's 22 shots in the box are level with Jamie Vardy (£10.1m) and are bettered by just six other players in FPL.

Furthermore, the 29-year-old's 13 shots on target in home matches are also level with the Leicester striker and are joint-third this season.

Norwich's schedule lifts Pukki's potential in FPL, with four of their next six matches at Carrow Road.

18 WOL (H) 21 CRY (H)
19 AVL (A) 22 MUN (A)
20 TOT (H) 23 BOU (H)

In addition, their Gameweek 19 visit to Aston Villa scores just two in the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR).

That hands Pukki the chance to continue his improving form and get more goals over the next few Gameweeks.
