The Scout on why Liverpool striker can reward his new owners at home to Palace

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 2 of 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League.

Darwin Nunez (LIV) £9.0m

After a pair of fine performances off the bench, Nunez is pushing for his first start for Liverpool.

TV Info

Nunez came on as a substitute to score Liverpool's third goal in their recent 3-1 Community Shield win over Manchester City.

His introduction in the second half against Fulham last weekend helped transform the Reds' attack.

He scored his side’s first goal in the 2-2 draw, also supplying the assist for Mohamed Salah’s (£13.0m) strike.

The underlying numbers immediately show Nunez’s ability to find himself in quality scoring positions.

His total of three big chances ranked second only to the four of Man City’s Erling Haaland (£11.6m) in Gameweek 1.

Fine form continues

Nunez’s display at Craven Cottage continued his form from last season, when he produced 26 goals and four assists in 28 league appearances for Benfica.


The Uruguay forward is a top target for Liverpool’s home encounter with Crystal Palace on Monday evening following his nine-point haul at Fulham.

He is the third most-bought forward in the Gameweek, earning over 228,000 new owners ahead of Saturday’s 11:00 BST deadline.

Nunez seems likely to lead the line and has the form to immediately reward his growing band of owners in Fantasy.
