GW2 Ones to watch: Willian

The Scout backs Arsenal winger to reward new owners with another starring role at home to West Ham

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 2 of Fantasy Premier League.

Willian (ARS) £8.1m

The Brazilian has quickly settled into Arsenal's line-up following his summer move from Chelsea.

Playing on the right of a three-man attack at Fulham, he collected three Fantasy assists in a 3-0 win last weekend.

Willian's bumper 14-point haul at Craven Cottage has made him a key target for the Gunners' home encounter with West Ham United.

Indeed, he is the second most-bought player in the Gameweek, earning over 235,000 transfers in.

That huge raft of new owners means that, along with Patrick Bamford (£5.6m), the Arsenal wide man is the first player to rise in price this season.

His performance in Gameweek 1 continued Willian's impressive late-season form for Chelsea in 2019/20.

The 32-year-old scored five goals and supplied four assists over his final nine starts for the Blues.

As he showed against Fulham, Willian's creativity will be a potent weapon for Mikel Arteta's men this term.

Last season, his 76 key passes were bettered by just six other players in FPL. By comparison, Arsenal's top creator Nicolas Pepe (£7.9m) created only 39 chances.

West Ham's poor defensive record suggests Willian can build upon his eye-catching debut. 

David Moyes' side have managed a singular clean sheet in their last 19 Premier League matches.

Willian can seize upon those frailties, rewarding his huge number of new owners with another big return.
