GW36 Kings to watch: Bamford to reward new backers

The Scout 14 May 2021

The Scout suggests five Fantasy picks including the Leeds star, who is most-bought player for GW36

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 36 of Fantasy Premier League.

Patrick Bamford (LEE) £6.4m

The Leeds United striker is the top target ahead of Friday’s 18:30 BST deadline, earning 200,000+ new owners for his encounter with Burnley at Turf Moor.

Bamford scored and earned eight points in his previous match with the Clarets.

And the underlying numbers suggest he can enjoy more success on Saturday.

Away from home, his totals of 53 shots and 43 shots inside the box both put him among the top two players in Fantasy this season.

Michail Antonio (WHU) £6.5m

A trip to Brighton & Hove Albion raises the West Ham United forward’s potential for Gameweek 36.

Antonio scored twice and earned 13 points in his last away match, a 2-1 win at Burnley.

Brighton, meanwhile, will be without the influential Lewis Dunk (£4.9m), with the centre-back suspended for Saturday’s contest at Amex Stadium.

Jannik Vestergaard (SOU) £4.7m

Southampton’s centre-back offers strong potential at both ends of the pitch at home against relegated Fulham.

Vestergaard has produced three goals and an assist this term, while his 20 shots in the box have been bettered by only three other defenders in Fantasy.

He entertains a Cottagers side who have struggled in attack recently, scoring just once in their last four matches.

Riyad Mahrez (MCI) £8.0m

Managers willing to take a risk on Manchester City’s line-up should consider the Algerian.

Mahrez has produced hauls of 12 and 18 points in his last five appearances, highlighting his explosive potential for his trip to Newcastle United.

He can take advantage of a Magpies side who have struggled in defence at home this term, managing just a single clean sheet in 17 matches. 

Seamus Coleman (EVE) £4.9m

Everton’s right-back offers the prospect of attacking and defensive returns at home against Sheffield United.

Coleman has 16 points across his last three outings at Goodison Park, combining two assists with a clean sheet and two bonus points.

The Blades, meanwhile, have been poor at both ends of the pitch on their travels this term.

They have scored just one goal in their last seven road trips and are the only side who have failed to keep a single clean sheet away from home.
