GW28 Kings to watch: Coutinho can go big in Double

Aston Villa star is one of four Double Gameweek players among The Scout's top five picks

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Double Gameweek 28 of Fantasy Premier League ahead of the deadline at 11:00 GMT on Saturday 5 March.

Philippe Coutinho (AVL) £7.4m

A very favourable pair of fixtures for Aston Villa lifts the potential of the Brazilian in Fantasy.

Villa are among the six sides currently scheduled to play twice, hosting Southampton before a trip to Leeds United.

Coutinho’s home form looks ominous for a Saints side who have conceded at least twice in 10 of their 13 away matches this season.

He has two goals, two assists and 24 points across his three outings at Villa Park.

Notably, the playmaker recorded his season-high haul of 16 points against Leeds in Gameweek 24. And Leeds have been porous in defence of late, conceding 20 goals in their final five matches under Marcelo Bielsa before the Argentinian's departure.

Antonio Rudiger (CHE) £6.1m

The German has started 24 matches this term, at least six more than any other Chelsea defender.

Indeed, Rudiger is the Blues' top-scoring player in Fantasy on 108 points, combining two goals and three assists with 10 clean sheets.

A weekend trip to Burnley begins a run of very favourable opponents for Chelsea. According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), each of their next six matches score just two.

There is also a chance Thomas Tuchel’s side may play twice in Gameweek 28. 

If Chelsea or Norwich City progress to the next round of the FA Cup in Wednesday’s matches, they would face each other in Gameweek 28.

Che Adams (SOU) £6.9m

Southampton’s forward faces Villa and Newcastle United in his most prolific form of the season.

Adams has produced attacking returns in each of his last four matches, totalling 27 points thanks to three goals and an assist. 

When selected this season, he has been involved in a team-leading 56 per cent of Saints’ goals. 

Joe Willock (NEW) £5.7m

The midfielder has stepped up his output ahead of Newcastle’s encounters with Brighton & Hove Albion and Southampton.

Willock has scored twice and provided an assist in the last three matches, amassing 24 points.

His totals of 13 shots and eight shots in the box during that spell both place top for Eddie Howe’s men.

Newcastle also have a Double Gameweek 29 against Chelsea and Everton. They are the only side scheduled to play four matches in the next two Gameweeks.

Romain Saiss (WOL) £5.0m

The Moroccan offers an all-round route into Wolverhampton Wanderers’ strong defence for their home matches against Crystal Palace and Watford.

Bruno Lage’s side have conceded just 21 goals this season, the fourth-fewest in the competition.

Saiss has helped Wolves to nine clean sheets, also scoring twice in his 24 appearances.

His total of 12 shots in the box places fourth for Wolves in 2021/22.
