The Scout says centre-back's return from injury makes a big difference to Wolves' clean-sheet potential in FPL

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

Willy Boly (WOL) £4.7m

The centre-back's return from injury has immediately boosted Wolverhampton Wanderers’ defensive prospects in FPL.

Boly has helped the Midlands side claim back-to-back clean sheets against Manchester United and Leicester City.

Prior to that, Wolves had managed just a single shutout in 15 matches while the centre-back was sidelined.

Over the season as a whole, Boly’s influence on the Wolves defence has been significant.

Five of their six clean sheets have come in the 10 matches he has played.

Goal threat

Boly has the all-round style of play to provide FPL managers with multiple routes to points.

The 29-year-old is a threat at set-pieces.

He scored on four occasions last season and had a goal disallowed against Leicester last Friday after a Video Assistant Referee review.

Meanwhile, his defensive contribution is favoured by the Bonus Points System (BPS), which determines the bonus points in any match.

His total of seven bonus points this season is more than any other Wolves defender.

That has helped him return 4.6 points per match this season. Only four other regular starters in defence have bettered that average in FPL.

Wolves' next six Gameweeks
27 NOR (H) 2 30 WHU (A) 2
28 TOT (A) 4 31 BOU (H) 2
29 BHA (H) 2 32 AVL (A) 2

A home meeting with Norwich City starts a favourable run of opponents for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), five of their next six matches score only two.

With his potential for clean sheets, as well as goals and bonus points, Boly can provide big value at a cost of just £4.7m.
