The Scout says home form can help raise Liverpool attacker's appeal

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

Luis Diaz (LIV) £8.0m

A favourable run of home matches lifts the Colombian’s appeal as a mid-price route into Liverpool’s attack.

Their match with AFC Bournemouth on Saturday is one of three home encounters in the next four Gameweeks, along with Newcastle United and Wolverhampton Wanderers

Diaz has been far more reliable in Fantasy when playing at Anfield.

He averaged 5.8 points per match (ppm) at home in 2021/22 after signing last January, compared with 3.6 ppm on the road.

The underlying numbers show the winger’s all-round potential was also far greater at Anfield last season.

Diaz produced a shot every 20.5 minutes and created a chance every 42 minutes in home matches.

But these averages dropped to 47 and 66 minutes respectively on the road. 

Struggling Cherries 

The Colombian has been quick to replicate that form in 2022/23.

Although Diaz has blanked in his two road trips, he has scored in Liverpool’s only home match so far, his goal against Crystal Palace in Gameweek 2 earning him nine points. 

AFC Bournemouth, meanwhile, arrive in poor defensive form.

They have suffered back-to-back losses to Manchester City and Arsenal, conceding at least three goals on each occasion.

Diaz’s home form and kind fixtures can make him the go-to £8.0m midfielder in Fantasy for the next four Gameweeks.
