Brentford forward has strong potential against AFC Bournemouth, says The Scout

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 9 of 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League.

Ivan Toney (BRE) £7.3m

The Brentford talisman is the third top-scoring player in Fantasy, his 47 points bettered only by Erling Haaland (£12.0m) and Harry Kane (£11.4m), with 73 and 50 respectively.

Toney’s all-round style of play is a major factor in his output. 

He has scored five goals and also supplied two assists in his seven outings, collecting a further eight bonus points.

The underlying numbers further show Toney’s huge influence on Brentford’s attack.

His 17 shots, 13 shots in the box and 11 chances created are all team-leading totals.

Toney also compares favourably with other players in his position in Fantasy.

Indeed, his seven big chances place joint-third among forwards, while his four big chances created rank joint-top.


Starting with their visit to AFC Bournemouth this weekend, Brentford are now set to embark on a kind run of opponents that allows Toney to maintain his early-season momentum.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), each of their next seven matches score no more than three.

Toney’s set-piece threat could pose major problems for AFC Bournemouth on Saturday.

He has produced 10 shots from such situations this season, more than any team-mate.

The Cherries, meanwhile, have conceded 37 shots at set-pieces, the joint-worst record in the league.

That can help Toney deliver for his 21 per cent ownership once again this weekend.
