The Scout on why Spurs wing-back is worth the rotation risk

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 4 of 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League.

Ivan Perisic (TOT) £5.5m

The Tottenham Hotspur wing-back is a major target for Fantasy managers after producing a double-figure haul in his first start of the season.  

TV Info

Perisic was the top performer in Spurs’ 1-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend, earning a 12-point return. 

The Croat supplied the assist for Harry Kane’s (£11.4m) winner and collected the maximum three bonus points along with a clean sheet. 

As a result, he is the second most-bought in the Gameweek, earning 511,000+ new owners.

Perisic's assist for Kane v Wolves

Perisic had featured as a substitute in Spurs’ opening two matches, building up his fitness following a summer move from Inter Milan.

Although he is expected to be rotated during busier periods in the schedule, the 34-year-old has already managed to pick up points as a substitute thanks to his share of set-piece duties.

Perisic appeared off the bench late on against Chelsea in Gameweek 2 and provided the assist from a corner kick for Kane’s equaliser.

Friendly fixture schedule

Spurs’ short-term run of opponents certainly looks encouraging for Perisic’s new owners.

Antonio Conte’s side face two promoted opponents, Nottingham Forest and Fulham, in their next three matches.

Perisic’s ability to deliver huge hauls can richly reward managers over the coming period, despite the threat of an occasional benching.
