GW16 Ones to watch: Willian

The Scout says Fulham winger can thrive against a Man Utd side struggling defensively on the road

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 16 of 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League.

Willian (FUL) £5.5m

The Brazilian is proving a growing influence on Fulham's attack since establishing himself as a regular recently.

Willian has made four of his five starts this season in the last four Gameweeks.

He scored once in that period, collecting a 10-point return in a 3-2 win at Leeds United in Gameweek 13.

The underlying numbers highlight Willian's all-round potential at home to Manchester United this weekend.

His nine shots, seven shots in the box and 10 chances created all ranked second for Fulham over the last four Gameweeks.

Yet it was his accuracy that impressed most of all, with the Brazilian's seven shots on target more than double that of any team-mate during that run.

Indeed, that total was bettered only by the 10 of Mohamed Salah (£12.7m) among midfielders in Fantasy.

Playing as a left winger, Willian's prospects for Gameweek 16 are further lifted by a one-match suspension for Man Utd's regular right-back Diogo Dalot (£4.8m).

That suggests the Brazilian can thrive against a Red Devils side who have struggled defensively on their travels.

Man Utd are without a clean sheet in their last four away matches, conceding 11 goals in that run.

At a cost of only £5.5m, Willian's potential for goals and assists can make him a standout source of value.
