The Scout reckons Liverpool star can reward huge number of new owners at Brighton

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

Diogo Jota (LIV) £6.6m

The Liverpool star has emerged as the top target in FPL for Gameweek 10.

Jota has earned 405,000+ new owners, more than double the total of any other player ahead of Friday’s 18:30 GMT deadline.

The summer signing’s prospects have been boosted by a recent change of formation.

Manager Jurgen Klopp has tweaked his system to cope without injured centre-backs Virgil van Dijk (£6.3m) and Joe Gomez (£5.3m).

Liverpool have switched from a 4-3-3 to a 4-2-3-1 formation, with midfielder Fabinho (£5.4m) moving into defence.

This has freed up an extra space for an attacker in the Reds’ line-up, with Jota starting three of the last four Gameweeks.

Red-hot form

The Portuguese has been quick to make his mark.

He has scored against Sheffield United, West Ham United and Leicester City during that period, totalling 28 points in Fantasy.

The underlying statistics show why Jota, who now boasts an ownership of 17.0 per cent, has been so successful.

His four big chances and six shots on target over the last four Gameweeks are the joint-highest totals among FPL midfielders.

Furthermore, his nine shots in the box rank third, beating the tallies of team-mates Mohamed Salah (£12.2m) and Sadio Mane (£12.1m), who have produced seven apiece.

Brighton, meanwhile, have struggled in defence recently, claiming just a single clean sheet in seven attempts.

Jota has the form to profit from those weaknesses and reward his growing ownership.
