GW16 Ones to watch: Trent Alexander-Arnold

Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool FC - Premier League

The Scout on why Liverpool star’s potential for huge home hauls makes him a tempting one-week punt

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

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) £7.2m

The Liverpool right-back's potential for huge hauls in home matches makes him a tempting option prior to the unlimited free transfers period in Fantasy.

Alexander-Arnold delivered five double-figure returns at Anfield last term, second only to the six of Mohamed Salah (£12.7m) among team-mates.

And he mirrored those displays earlier this season with a 17-point haul in the 9-0 win against AFC Bournemouth in Gameweek 4.

There is no doubt Alexander-Arnold has endured a disappointing start to the 2022/23 Fantasy.

Indeed, his total of 38 points is a massive 51 points behind Kieran Trippier (£5.9m) at the top of the defender standings.

However, the underlying numbers suggest he is getting back to his creative best.

Alexander-Arnold's 10 key passes over the last four Gameweeks ranks joint-top with Trippier among defenders.

The England star's record against his visitors Southampton offers further encouragement.

Alexander-Arnold has never blanked in home meetings with Saints, averaging 8.0 points per match over five appearances.

His many routes to returns are highlighted by his two assists, five clean sheets and four bonus points over those encounters.

Managers have unlimited free transfers after the Gameweek 16 deadline has passed, allowing them to reshape their squads before the season resumes on Monday 26 December.

As a one-Gameweek option, Alexander-Arnold could richly reward managers with the budget to spare for a premium defender.
