GW29 Ones to watch: Marcos Alonso

The Scout says Chelsea wing-back has averaged 8.6 points in the matches he has started this season

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 29 of Fantasy Premier League.

Marcos Alonso (CHE) £6.0m

The left-back has been in sensational form since returning to Chelsea's starting XI.

Alonso has scored three times in the Blues’ last two Premier League matches.

He found the net in the 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur in Gameweek 27, and his two goals then salvaged a draw at AFC Bournemouth last weekend.

As a result, Chelsea's wing-back has racked up 24 points across those two matches, even though the Blues conceded on both occasions.

Alonso's double v AFC Bournemouth

Alonso's ability to pick up points at both ends of the pitch is key to his appeal.

In 10 Premier League appearances, he has four goals, three assists and four clean sheets.

The 29-year-old has produced attacking or defensive returns in all eight of his Gameweek starts this season.

Indeed, when selected by Frank Lampard in the starting XI, Alonso has averaged 8.6 points per match (ppm).

His ppm in all 2019/20 appearances is 7.1, a tally only bettered by Manchester United's Bruno Fernandes, with 8.0, this season.

The Spaniard's 10 shots over the last two Gameweeks are more than any other player in FPL, while his six chances created are also a team-leading total for Chelsea and rank fourth overall.

Toffees have soft centre

Alonso has the chance to add to his flurry of points when Everton visit Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

The Toffees have managed just a single clean sheet away from home this season, and have conceded five goals across their last two at Watford and Arsenal.

Alonso has the potential to bring in both attacking returns and clean-sheet points this weekend.
