GW29 Ones to watch: Michail Antonio

The Scout says winger has been the standout performer in West Ham's improving attack

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

Michail Antonio (WHU) £6.9m

The West Ham United winger visits Arsenal on the back of his season-high haul against Southampton last weekend.

Antonio claimed 11 points in the 3-1 win over Saints, scoring one goal and setting up another.

Antonio's impact v Southampton

That victory continued West Ham's improving run of attacking performances.

David Moyes' men have scored eight goals in the last four Gameweeks, second only to the nine of Everton.

Two of those came in a narrow 3-2 loss at Anfield in Gameweek 27 as the Hammers ended Liverpool's run of five successive home clean sheets.

Timely boost

Their increased threat has coincided with Antonio’s return to the starting XI in Gameweek 25.

Since then he has produced 10 shots and eight shots inside the box. Both of those totals have been more than double any of his team-mates.

Indeed, only three midfielders in FPL have had more shots in the box in the last four Gameweeks.

Antonio has also been the Hammers' top creator, producing six key passes over the same period.

Exposed at Emirates

This all highlights his all-round potential against an Arsenal side who have had a poor defensive record at home this season.

The Gunners have kept only three clean sheets at Emirates Stadium, conceding at least twice in eight of their 14 matches.

This suggests Antonio can build on his performance against Southampton and bring in more returns in Gameweek 29.
