The Scout tips five players and says 250,000+ managers are right to bring in Man City midfielder

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 20 of Fantasy Premier League.

Ilkay Gundogan (MCI) £5.5m
WBA 0-5 MCI

The form of the Manchester City midfielder has made him a top target for Fantasy managers.

Gundogan has scored all five of his goals for the season in his last seven matches.

That has earned him 250,000+ transfers in ahead of a trip to West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday.

Gundogan's goal v Chelsea

Gundogan’s appeal in Fantasy has been further boosted by an injury to team-mate Kevin De Bruyne (£11.9m).

The Belgian is likely to be absent for four to six weeks with a hamstring problem, lifting Gundogan’s prospects of more starts in the coming matches.

And the underlying numbers show why he has been such a success recently.

Gundogan has recorded 12 shots inside the penalty area in the last four Gameweeks, more than any other midfielder in FPL.

Bukayo Saka (ARS) £5.3m
SOU 1-3 ARS

A visit to Southampton gives the Arsenal midfielder the chance to continue his strong run of form. 

Three of Saka's four goals and both of his assists for the season have come in his last five appearances.

His total of 11 shots in the box in that period ranks joint-second among FPL midfielders.

Aaron Cresswell (WHU) £5.4m
CRY 2-3 WHU

West Ham United’s left-back faces Crystal Palace on the back of some strong all-round performances.

Cresswell has produced attacking or defensive points in four of his last five matches on his way to second spot in the FPL defender standings.

Set-piece duties can help Cresswell to big points at Selhurst Park.

Palace have conceded 84 attempts from such situations, the second-most in the Premier League.

Lewis Dunk (BHA) £4.8m
BHA 0-0 FUL

The Brighton & Hove Albion centre-back can bring in points at both ends of the pitch at home to Fulham.

Fulham have struggled in attack recently, scoring only four goals in their last eight outings.

Dunk, meanwhile, has scored both of his goals this season in his previous five appearances. 

His aerial threat can pose big problems for Scott Parker’s side.

Fulham have conceded a league-leading 14 headed efforts over the last four Gameweeks. 

Harvey Barnes (LEI) £6.8m
EVE 1-1 LEI

The winger has stepped up his output ahead of Leicester City’s trip to Everton.

Barnes has produced three goals and an assist over his last five matches, matching his number of returns from the first 14 Gameweeks. 

His 14 shots since Gameweek 15 are a team-leading total, while his eight shots in the box rank joint-top with Jamie Vardy (£10.1m).

With Vardy now injured for the Goodison Park encounter, Barnes could be the man to make the difference for Leicester.
