The Scout says an appealing run of fixtures means now could be the time to move for fit-again Chelsea winger

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 5 of Fantasy Premier League.

Christian Pulisic (CHE) £8.3m

The Chelsea midfielder recovered from injury to make his first appearance of the season in the previous Gameweek.

Pulisic played seven minutes as a substitute in a 4-0 home win over Crystal Palace.

And having proved his fitness, he is now pushing for his first start of the campaign against Southampton.

The United States international's displays towards the end of 2019/20 highlighted his Fantasy potential.

Pulisic produced attacking returns in seven of Chelsea’s final nine matches of the season.

His four goals and four assists during that run helped him average 5.1 points per match in his debut FPL campaign.

Pulisic's goals and assists 

The underlying numbers from last season too show the importance of Pulisic to Frank Lampard’s attack.

Although he was limited to 25 appearances due to injury, his totals of 53 shots inside the penalty area and 13 big chances both ranked second for Chelsea.

Favourable fixtures

Having missed the Blues' first three matches of 2020/21, Pulisic sits in only 3.1 per cent of squads.

That marks him out as a major differential ahead of a very promising run of opponents for Chelsea.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), only one of their next 10 matches scores more than three.

Pulisic can take advantage of the schedule, rewarding investors with goals and assists from Gameweek 5 onwards.

CHE 3-3 SOU
