GW26 Ones to watch: Lucas Moura

The Scout says Spurs attacker has been a greater threat in the penalty area since Harry Kane picked up an injury

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 26 of Fantasy Premier League.

Lucas Moura (TOT) £7.1m

The winger has stepped up his goal threat for Tottenham Hotspur while Harry Kane (£10.8m) has been injured.

Lucas has had six shots inside the penalty area in the last four Gameweeks.

That total is second only to the 11 of Son Heung-min (£10.0m).

Furthermore, the Brazilian's eight chances created are joint-top with Serge Aurier (£5.0m) for Spurs since Kane was sidelined in Gameweek 21. 

Growing threat

Lucas has become a bigger influence on the Spurs attack in recent matches.

His average of 1.5 shots in the box over Gameweeks 22 to 25 is up from 0.9 beforehand.

The attacker is also creating chances at a faster rate, averaging 44 minutes per key pass compared with 76 minutes in the first 21 Gameweeks.

He assisted Steven Bergwijn's (£7.5m) opener as Jose Mourinho's side beat Manchester City 2-0 last time out.

A visit to Aston Villa can help Lucas build on his six-point haul from last weekend.

Dean Smith's side have been poor defensively at Villa Park this season.

At home, they have allowed their opponents 130 shots inside the area. Only Newcastle United, with 132, have a worse record.

Villa have been particularly weak defensively in recent matches, conceding 14 goals in their last five at home.

Lucas's improving potency in front of goal combined with those defensive frailties offers FPL managers a mid-price route into the Spurs attack for Gameweek 26.
