The Scout says Wolves striker can extend his run of goals at Man Utd

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 25 of Fantasy Premier League.

Raul Jimenez (WOL) £7.6m

The Mexican has climbed to third place among FPL forwards after scoring three goals in the last two Gameweeks.

Jimenez netted twice in Wolverhampton Wanderers' win at Southampton in Gameweek 23.

He then ended Liverpool's run of seven successive clean sheets by scoring the hosts' goal in a 2-1 home defeat in Gameweek 24.

The underlying statistics show why Jimenez has been a big success recently.

He has had 16 shots over the last four Gameweeks, joint-top among all players in FPL.

Jimenez has also recorded six big chances in that period, second only to the seven of Gabriel Jesus (£9.5m).

The improvement is clear. The Mexican has had 1.5 big chances per appearance over his last four outings, three times his previous average of 0.5.

In demand

Jimenez's form has made him a hot target for FPL managers ahead of Saturday's 11:30 GMT deadline.

Indeed, he is the most-bought player in the Gameweek, earning over 230,000 new owners for his visit to Manchester United.

The Red Devils have lost three of their last four Premier League matches, including a 2-0 defeat by Burnley in the last Gameweek.

Jimenez can profit from his hosts' weakness in defence and get more goals at Old Trafford on Saturday evening.
