The Scout reckons Burnley No 1’s all-round potential boosts his chances of finishing as top-scoring goalkeeper in Fantasy Premier League

The Scout highlights players for Fantasy Premier League managers to target with their unlimited transfers before the Gameweek 30+ deadline.

Nick Pope (BUR) £4.9m

The Burnley goalkeeper has a six-point advantage at the top of the FPL goalkeeper standings after the first 29 Gameweeks.

Pope's 11 clean sheets are the most ahead of Dean Henderson (£5.3m) and Alisson (£6.2m).

Furthermore, his 17 bonus points is also a leading total.

The 28-year-old was outstanding in the Clarets' most recent matches, earning four shutouts from their last seven outings.

That included double-figure hauls against Leicester City, Manchester United and Newcastle United.

Shutout appeal

Burnley’s remaining schedule raises the appeal of investing in their key players in defence.

Six of their final nine opponents, Watford, Crystal Palace, Sheffield United, West Ham United, Norwich City and Brighton & Hove Albion, rank in the bottom 10 teams for goals scored.

That gives Pope the chance to consolidate his spot as the top-scoring goalkeeper in FPL by the end of the season.
