Midfielder has produced returns in four of his last six starts ahead of two fixtures for Man Utd

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 19 of Fantasy Premier League.

Paul Pogba (MUN) £7.7m

The Manchester United midfielder continued his improved form in Fantasy Premier League with a midweek winner at Burnley.

Pogba has produced all of his attacking returns this season over his last six starts.

He has totalled two goals and two assists in that period, claiming points against West Ham United, Sheffield United and Aston Villa as well as Burnley.

At a cost of just £7.7m, Pogba offers a reasonably budget-friendly route into the league leaders’ attack for their Double Gameweek 19 meetings with Liverpool and Fulham.

Pogba's MW18 winner at Burnley
Tomas Soucek (WHU) £5.3m

With a pair of home fixtures against Burnley and West Bromwich Albion, Soucek is the most-bought midfielder in the Gameweek, earning over 180,000 transfers in.

He is also the top midfielder for value this season, returning 14.5 points per million spent. 

Soucek has found the net in two of West Ham's last three Gameweeks against Brighton & Hove Albion and Everton, earning double-figure hauls on both occasions.

Phil Foden (MCI) £6.3m

A recent return to Manchester City's starting line-up has revived the midfielder’s prospects in Fantasy.

Foden had started only one of his side’s 10 matches between Gameweeks 6 and 15, but in last two Gameweeks he has scored twice and racked up 25 points against Chelsea and Brighton.

At a cost of only £6.3m, Foden could offer outstanding value with a double set of home fixtures against Crystal Palace and Aston Villa

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) £7.3m

Alexander-Arnold's attacking threat has been improving ahead of Liverpool’s top-of-table contest with league leaders Man Utd and then Burnley.

His totals of five shots and seven key passes both place second among defenders in FPL over the last four Gameweeks. 

He has also claimed clean sheets against Palace and Newcastle United in that period, highlighting his potential for returns at both ends of the pitch.

Ademola Lookman (FUL) £5.0m

The Fulham winger faces Chelsea and Man Utd off the back of his assist at Tottenham Hotspur in midweek.

Since making his debut in Gameweek 4, Lookman's 29 shots and 22 chances created are both team-leading totals.

Indeed, when selected, he has been involved in 46 per cent of Fulham’s goals this season.
