The Scout says Man City's second-highest Fantasy scorer can offer big value at West Ham

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 6 of Fantasy Premier League.

Phil Foden (MCI) £6.6m

A regular role for Manchester City has boosted the midfielder's attacking prospects in the early stages of 2020/21.

Foden has started all four of his side's Premier League matches. 

He scored in their opening fixture at Wolverhampton Wanderers in Gameweek 2 and then provided the assist for Raheem Sterling's (£11.5m) winner at home to Arsenal in Gameweek 5.

The 20-year-old has totalled 19 points, second only to the 27 of Sterling for Man City.

Foden's goal v Wolves 

Foden's underlying numbers highlight his major goal threat.

Since Gameweek 2 he has had eight shots in the box and three big chances, both team-leading totals.

Foden also fares well compared with other FPL midfielders.

Indeed, only Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) and Sadio Mane (£11.9m) of Liverpool have registered more shots in the box in this period, with 11 and 10 respectively.

Favourable fixture

A trip to West Ham United looks encouraging for Man City’s main attackers.

Pep Guardiola’s side have scored at least four goals in each of their last four Premier League away matches against them.

Meanwhile, David Moyes’ men struggled in defence against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend, conceding three goals.

Foden can take advantage of those weaknesses and offer a cut-price route into the Man City attack for Gameweek 6.
