The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 22 of Fantasy Premier League.

Jack Grealish (AVL) £7.8m

A home encounter with West Ham United gives Grealish the chance to continue his run of FPL returns.

The Aston Villa playmaker has produced a goal or an assist in four of his last five appearances, picking up points against Manchester United, Newcastle United, Burnley and Southampton.

Grealish profited in his previous meeting with the Hammers, scoring and earning 10 points in Gameweek 10.

The underlying numbers further highlight his potential. 

At home, Grealish’s 28 chances created place him second among all players in FPL, while his 19 shots in the box rank third in midfield.

Joao Cancelo (MCI) £6.0m

After being rested against Sheffield United, the Portuguese looks set to be recalled to the Manchester City starting XI at Burnley.

Cancelo offers multiple routes to returns for the match at Turf Moor.

He has produced one goal, one assist, seven clean sheets and seven bonus points in his last nine starts.

Matheus Pereira (WBA) £5.6m
TV Info

The arrival of Sam Allardyce has transformed the West Bromwich Albion playmaker’s Fantasy potential.

Four of Pereira’s five goals this season and two of his four assists have come in his seven matches under the new head coach.

He has averaged 6.6 points per match over that period ahead of a visit to Sheff Utd.

Roberto Firmino (LIV) £9.4m
TV Info

Liverpool’s Brazilian forward is set to return to the starting XI against Brighton & Hove Albion at Anfield after featuring as a substitute against West Ham.

Firmino faces Brighton having produced attacking returns in successive matches for the first time since Gameweek 14. 

Over the last four Gameweeks, his nine shots in the box and six key passes have matched Mohamed Salah (£12.6m).

Wilfried Zaha (CRY) £7.2m
TV Info

The Crystal Palace talisman has been far more dangerous away from home this season. 

All three of Zaha’s double-figure hauls have come on the road, including hauls of 13, 15 and 18 points.

He can take advantage of a Newcastle side who have only one clean sheet at St James’ Park in 2020/21.
