The Scout pinpoints players who can build on their performances last season and enjoy big success in 2021/22 Fantasy Premier League.
Nicolas Pepe (ARS) £7.5m
The winger was a major influence on Arsenal’s attack in the second half of last season.
Pepe started only four matches in the Gunners’ first 19 Gameweeks, playing just 479 minutes in total.
But he then started 12 of their final 19 fixtures, turning in a series of strong displays.
Pepe was Arsenal’s most prolific player during that period.
He scored eight of his 10 goals for the season and supplied all three of his assists in that spell.
Pepe's best 2020/21 moments
The underlying numbers from Gameweek 20 onwards further highlight Pepe’s growing importance to Mikel Arteta’s team.
His totals of 34 shots, 31 shots in the box and 15 shots on target were all more than any other Arsenal player.
He finished level with Bukayo Saka (£6.5m) on 114 points in 2020/21.
Yet while the England star can be found in 15.6 per cent of squads, Pepe is owned by just 3.6 per cent.
