GW2 Ones to watch: Raheem Sterling

The Scout 16 Sep 2020

The Scout says Man City winger’s away form makes him a strong alternative to Kevin De Bruyne in the coming Gameweeks

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

Raheem Sterling (MCI) £11.5m

The rush to bring in Kevin De Bruyne (£11.5m) means Sterling has been largely ignored by Fantasy managers ahead of Gameweek 2.

De Bruyne has been brought in by 280,000+ managers after Manchester City’s blank Gameweek 1, taking his ownership to 30.0 per cent.

Sterling, meanwhile, sits in only 4.3 per cent of squads, earning just 49,000 transfers in for the trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Sterling's performance in the corresponding fixture last season looks promising for his prospects.

He scored both his side’s goals in a 3-2 loss at Molineux in Gameweek 19.

That highlights the winger's big potential for points when playing away from home.

Sterling’s 14 away goals last season was a league-leading total and at least six more than any team-mate.

The underlying numbers further show why Sterling is such a potent threat on his travels.

Away from home, his totals of 26 big chances and 63 shots were more than any other player in FPL.

Fixtures to flourish

Crucially, Man City are now set to embark on a run of four away matches over the next six Gameweeks.

They also visit Leeds United, West Ham United and Sheffield United in that period.

Sterling can more than match De Bruyne over that schedule, offering managers a major captaincy option over the coming weeks.
