GW30 Ones to watch: Callum Wilson

The Scout says AFC Bournemouth forward has stepped up his goal threat ahead of meeting with Crystal Palace

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 30 of Fantasy Premier League.

Callum Wilson (BOU) £7.4m

His goal against Liverpool at Anfield last weekend continued the AFC Bournemouth forward's improving run of returns in FPL.

Wilson has also scored against Brighton & Hove Albion and Sheffield United in the last six Gameweeks.

Prior to that run, however, he had failed to find the net in 15 successive Gameweek appearances.

In-form forward

The underlying numbers further point to Wilson's attacking potential.

His 13 shots in the penalty area in the last six Gameweeks were bettered by only four other forwards in FPL.

Indeed, that total was six more than any other AFC Bournemouth player.

Double trouble

Those numbers also fare well when compared with Wilson's early season displays.

His shots in the box per appearance have risen from 1.1 to 2.2, while his shots on target have also doubled, up from 0.5 to 1.0.

Meanwhile, his minutes per shot have also improved from 60.3 to 41.5.

Home run

Wilson's improvement is mirrored by AFC Bournemouth's output in recent home matches.

Indeed, Eddie Howe's men have scored at least twice in three successive outings at Vitality Stadium.

That suggests they will pose big problems for a Crystal Palace side who have struggled in defence on the road lately.

Travel sickness

The Eagles have managed just a single clean sheet in their last six away matches.

Wilson's threat can prove decisive for the Cherries as they look to claim a much-needed win and climb out the bottom three on Saturday afternoon.
