GW1 Ones to watch: Son Heung-min

The Scout says the South Korean can trouble Everton after being involved in six of Spurs’ nine goals during pre-season

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 1 of Fantasy Premier League.

Son Heung-min (TOT) £9.0m

The South Korean has been the standout attacker over Tottenham Hotspur’s pre-season matches.

Son was involved in six of their nine goals, scoring four times and supplying a further two assists.

That builds on the strong form he produced under Jose Mourinho last season.

Son averaged 5.9 points per match (ppm) after the Portuguese was appointed head coach in Gameweek 13.

When selected, he was involved in 46 per cent of their goals for Mourinho, more than any team-mate.

Favourable opener

Son is the fourth-most popular midfielder in the game ahead of a home meeting with Everton.

And the Toffees’ poor away record suggests he can immediately reward his 27.7 per cent ownership.

Everton managed just three clean sheets on their travels last term.

They conceded at least twice in five of their 10 away trips under Carlo Ancelotti.

Lasting appeal

Spurs’ kind opening run of opponents further strengthens the appeal of investing in Son from the very start of the season.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), six of their first eight matches score only two.

This includes all four of their home fixtures in that period, as Mourinho’s men also welcome Newcastle United, West Ham United and Brighton & Hove Albion to north London.

That gives Son the opportunity to extend his recent output and bring in regular attacking returns over the opening Gameweeks.
