The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 10 of Fantasy Premier League.

Harvey Barnes (LEI) £6.9m

The Leicester City winger is owned by only 3.8 per cent of managers after a run of just one goal in the last seven Gameweeks.

However, Barnes is now set to embark on a schedule that can revive his appeal over the short term.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), each of the Foxes' next three matches score just two.

They entertain Fulham and Brighton & Hove Albion, with a visit to Sheffield United in between.

Rivalling Vardy

The underlying numbers highlight Barnes's influence on the Leicester attack.

His 22 shots are more than any team-mate, while his 12 shots on target are just one fewer than Jamie Vardy (£10.2m).

The England international also fares well when assessed against FPL midfielders over the opening nine Gameweeks.

His 19 shots in the box are joint-third, bettered only by Liverpool pair Mohamed Salah (£12.2m) and Sadio Mane (£12.1m), with 26 and 20 respectively.

A visit from Fulham on Monday looks promising for the Leicester's key attackers.

The Cottagers having struggled in defence this season. They have conceded 18 goals, 53 shots on target and 21 big chances – all those totals are among the bottom two sides.

Barnes can exploit those weaknesses and return to form, boosting his chances of further success against Brighton and Sheff Utd in the coming weeks.
