The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 5 of 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League.

Harry Kane (TOT) £11.4m

Another two goals against Nottingham Forest continued Kane’s (£11.4m) prolific start to 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League.

The Tottenham Hotspur forward collected 10 points on Sunday, his best haul of the campaign, despite missing a penalty.

Kane visits West Ham United having scored all four of his goals this season in the last three matches, also netting against Chelsea and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

He enjoyed a successful previous meeting with the Hammers, supplying three assists and earning 13 points.

Ruben Dias (MCI) £6.0m

The Manchester City centre-back offers potential at both ends of the pitch at home to Nott'm Forest.

Dias was a reliable source of attacking returns last term, supplying two goals and five assists.

He hosts a Forest side who have scored just twice in their first four fixtures of 2022/23.

Marcus Rashford (MUN) £6.3m

A role up front for Manchester United can help Rashford take advantage of Leicester City’s defence.

Listed as a midfielder in Fantasy, he has produced 11 shots and 10 shots in the box, both team-leading totals.

He has also scored one goal.

Rashford's goal v Liverpool

Leicester, meanwhile, have conceded 13 big chances, more than any other side.

Marc Cucurella (CHE) £5.1m

The wing-back has immediately found his attacking form since joining Chelsea from Brighton & Hove Albion.

Cucurella has produced an assist in two of his three starts for the Blues, picking up points against Spurs and Leicester.

He visits a Southampton side who failed to score in their last home match, a 1-0 loss to Man Utd at the weekend.

Rodrigo (LEE) £6.5m

Four goals and an assist have taken the Spaniard to the top of the midfielder standings on 37 points.

Playing up front in the absence of Patrick Bamford (£7.3m), Rodrigo has produced 18 shots and 15 shots in the box, both more than any other player in his position in Fantasy.

He entertains an Everton team who have yet to keep a clean sheet this season.
