FPL Saturday review: El Ghazi outperforming Grealish

The Scout 27 Dec 2020
Aston Villa v Crystal Palace

Aston Villa winger has doubled his popular team-mate's points tally over last four Gameweeks

A late goal against Crystal Palace extended Anwar El Ghazi's (£5.7m) prolific run of form in Fantasy Premier League.

The winger rounded off the scoring in Aston Villa's 3-0 home win, recording his fourth goal in as many appearances.

The midfielder has bettered team-mate Jack Grealish (£7.8m) by 35 points to 17 over the last four Gameweeks, highlighting his budget potential in Fantasy.

His total of 22 shots is also a league-high during that period.

Villa 3-0 Palace highlights

Villa kept up their excellent defensive record despite losing Tyrone Mings (£5.4m) to a red card.

They registered a fourth successive clean sheet to take their total for the campaign to eight, already surpassing their seven from last season.

Cancelo a defensive bonus

Manchester City are also among the form sides at the back.

A 2-0 win over Newcastle United helped Pep Guardiola's men to their fifth clean sheet in six Gameweeks.

Joao Cancelo (£5.6m) impressed again, starting his 10th match in 11 Gameweeks and adding two more bonus points to his collection.

No FPL defender can better the Portuguese's total of 10 bonus points this season.

Everton back in form

Everton have kept three clean sheets in their last four matches after beating Sheffield United.

That run has coincided with manager Carlo Ancelotti's decision to play Mason Holgate (£4.8m) and Ben Godfrey (£5.0m) as full-backs.

Gylfi Sigurdsson (£6.8m) continues to impress further forward. His match-winning goal means he has three attacking returns since returning to the Everton starting XI in Gameweek 12. 

Sigurdsson scores GW15 winner

Sigurdsson has racked up eight bonus points in the last four Gameweeks alone, more than he managed in all of 2019/20.

Vardy the top forward

Jamie Vardy (£10.1m) tops the form table among FPL forwards.

His average of 7.5 points per match over the last 30 days is unsurpassed by any other player in his position.

Vardy's FPL assist in Leicester City's 2-2 draw with Manchester United means he has blanked only twice in the last 10 Gameweeks.

His next two matches are at Crystal Palace and Newcastle.

That looks encouraging for his prospects, as 12 of his 18 attacking returns this season have come on the road.
