The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 27 of Fantasy Premier League.

Sadio Mane (LIV) £12.2m

The Liverpool winger enjoyed a successful return to action against Norwich City at the weekend.

Having missed the Reds' previous two matches through injury, Mane emerged from the bench to score the decisive goal in a 1-0 win over the Canaries.

His strike punished the 1.6million managers who sold the Senegalese over Gameweeks 25-26, after he was injured in the first match of their Double Gameweek 24.

Watch Mane's winning goal

A home encounter with West Ham United on Monday gives Mane the chance to get more goals for the leaders.

He has a fine record against the Hammers, scoring four goals and supplying two assists in their last four meetings.

Indeed, he found the net twice in the corresponding fixture last season, which Jurgen Klopp's men won 4-0.

Home comforts

Mane has been Liverpool's most influential attacker at Anfield this term.

He has been involved in 46 per cent of their home goals, compared with the 45 per cent of Mohamed Salah (£12.8m).

Yet whereas Salah can be found in 45.1 per cent of FPL squads, Mane's recent exodus means he is owned by just 20.8 per cent.

Leaky Hammers

He will look to take advantage of a West Ham defence who have struggled lately.

They have conceded 10 goals in their last four matches, more than any other side.

That points to more success for Mane, lifting his appeal as a major captaincy candidate for Gameweek 27.
