The Scout says Man Utd forward has schedule to emulate his 2019/20 form now he's back from suspension

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 8 of Fantasy Premier League.

Anthony Martial (MUN) £8.7m

The Manchester United forward's ownership has dropped to a mere 3.7 per cent after his recent three-match suspension.

That marks Martial out as a huge differential for the Red Devils' visit to Everton this weekend.

Although they have struggled at home this season, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have been prolific on the road.

They have won both of their away matches, scoring three goals at Brighton & Hove Albion and putting four past Newcastle United.

And Everton's recent defensive record certainly looks encouraging for their visitors' key attackers.

Carlo Ancelotti's men are without a clean sheet in the last six Gameweeks, conceding twice on five of those occasions.

Proven performer

Martial enjoyed his best-ever FPL campaign in 2019/20.

Playing as a centre-forward, he scored 17 goals and supplied nine assists to earn a total of 200 points.

The Frenchman had endured a slow start to the new season, providing just one assist before being sent off against Tottenham Hotspur in Gameweek 3.

Time to shine?

But Martial scored in his side's 2-1 UEFA Champions League defeat by Istanbul Basaksehir on Wednesday night.

And upcoming fixtures provide him with the perfect platform to produce consistently in front of goal.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), only one of Man Utd's next seven matches scores more than three.

That gives Martial the chance to return to top form and emerge as a key differential up front for FPL managers.
