The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 21 of Fantasy Premier League.

Ollie Watkins (AVL) £6.2m
SOU 0-1 AVL

A visit to Southampton gives the Aston Villa striker the chance to continue his improving form and perhaps replace Harry Kane (£11.3m) in Fantasy forward lines. 

Watkins has scored in back-to-back matches for the first time since Gameweek 8, netting against Newcastle United and Burnley.

His improved output coincides with the recent return to action of Ross Barkley (£5.9m).

Watkins has scored all eight of his goals this season in the nine matches Barkley has started.

That includes a strike in Villa’s previous meeting with Southampton in Gameweek 7.

James Rodriguez (EVE) £7.7m
EVE 0-2 NEW

His goal against Leicester City in midweek highlighted the Everton playmaker’s influence when playing at home. 

All of Rodriguez’s four goals and three assists this season have come in his six starts at Goodison Park.

Indeed, he has averaged 7.7 points per appearance in those outings.

The Colombian now looks well-placed to take advantage of a Newcastle side who have lost six of their last seven road trips.

Raheem Sterling (MCI) £11.5m
MCI 1-0 SHU

A goal and assist at West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday extended the winger’s impressive run of returns.

Sterling has scored or assisted in six of his last seven starts ahead of a home encounter with Sheffield United.

An ownership of only 10.6 per cent makes him a tempting differential for the captaincy against a Sheff Utd side who have poor in defence this season.

Chris Wilder's men have managed a single clean sheet in 2020/21, the worst record in the Premier League.

Ben Chilwell (CHE) £6.1m
CHE 2-0 BUR

The Chelsea full-back has combined two goals and four assists with seven clean sheets over his 17 appearances this season.

Chilwell was handed an advanced role as a wing-back in the Chelsea's first match under new head coach Thomas Tuchel in midweek, further raising his chances of more attacking returns.

Burnley, meanwhile, have struggled in attack away from home this term.

Indeed, they have scored only two goals in their previous eight road trips ahead of Sunday’s visit to Stamford Bridge.

James Maddison (LEI) £7.2m
LEI 1-3 LEE

The Leicester midfielder plays Leeds United in his most prolific form of the campaign.

Maddison has scored in four of his last five matches in all competitions and has 29 points over Leicester's previous four Gameweeks.

Leeds visit King Power Stadium with a poor record on the road. 

Away from home, they have conceded 21 goals, more than any other side.
