GW28 Ones to watch: Ricardo Pereira

The Scout says Leicester full-back can bring in points at both ends of the pitch against Norwich

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 28 of Fantasy Premier League.

Ricardo Pereira (LEI) £6.3m

The Leicester City right-back has been a reliable source of attacking and defensive points in FPL this season.

In 26 appearances, Pereira has three goals and two assists, helping the Foxes keep nine clean sheets.

Against West Ham United in Gameweek 24, Pereira both scored and assisted in a 4-1 home victory.

The underlying statistics highlight the impact he has had in attack during the past four matches.

Pereira's goal v West Ham 

His eight shots were joint-top for Leicester in that period, while his five shots inside the box were the same amount as Jamie Vardy (£9.7m).

The Portuguese also laid on six key passes, second only to the 13 of James Maddison (£7.4m).

Forward improvements

He has recorded a shot every 45 minutes in the last four Gameweeks, compared with an average of 198 minutes beforehand.

And his minutes per chance created have quickened from 110 to 60.

A visit to Norwich City on Friday evening also raises Pereira’s chances of a 10th clean sheet.

The Canaries have struggled in attack recently, failing to score in each of the last three Gameweeks.

Brendan Rodgers’ side have a favourable run of opponents coming up and will face four of the Premier League's bottom six sides in succession.

This points to more success for Pereira, in both attack and defence.
