The Scout says Man City winger can add to his GW3 goal and assist when he faces Leeds United

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 4 of Fantasy Premier League.

Riyad Mahrez (MCI) £8.4m

The winger was the top FPL performer for Manchester City last weekend.

Handed his first start of the season, Mahrez claimed 12 points even though his team suffered a 5-2 defeat to Leicester City.

He needed only four minutes to open the scoring and also supplied the assist for Nathan Ake’s (£5.5m) second-half goal.

Mahrez's goal v Leicester 

Mahrez's display against the Foxes highlights his influence on the Man City attack.

When selected last season, he was involved in 38 per cent of their goals.

That ranked second only to the 41 per cent of Kevin De Bruyne (£11.6m) and ahead of Raheem Sterling's (£11.5m) 37 per cent.

The underlying numbers further illustrate his all-round potential.

Mahrez’s three shots against Leicester were joint-top with Sterling for Man City. And his three chances created was also a team-leading total, level with De Bruyne.

Favourable opponent?

A visit to Leeds United looks very encouraging for Pep Guardiola’s key attackers. 

Marcelo Bielsa's team have struggled defensively since returning to the Premier League.

Leeds have conceded 50 shots, 33 shots inside the penalty area and seven goals in the opening three Gameweeks.

Each of these totals is ranked among the bottom three sides so far.

Mahrez can take advantage of Leeds' frailties and bring in more returns at Elland Road this weekend.
