The Scout looks at players in Fantasy Premier League who have impressed in the FIFA World Cup 2022 matches.

Ivan Perisic (£5.4m)

The Tottenham Hotspur star profited from a more advanced role in Croatia’s 4-1 win over Canada on Sunday.

Listed as a defender in Fantasy due to his role as a wing-back for Spurs, Perisic provided two assists while playing on the left of a front three for his country.

That continued his domestic displays prior to the season break.

Perisic’s four assists place joint-top among defenders in Fantasy, while his 24 key passes rank fourth.  

Elsewhere, a pair of popular Fantasy assets were among the starters for a Belgium side that lost 2-0 to Morocco.

Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne (£12.6m) and Leicester City’s Timothy Castagne (£4.8m) both played 90 minutes, with Chelsea’s Hakim Ziyech (£5.5m) producing an assist for the victors.

Leandro Trossard (£7.1m), meanwhile, continues to have his pitch-time rationed for Belgium.

The Brighton & Hove Albion winger has appeared as a late substitute in both his nation's fixtures, suggesting he will be less inclined to be rotated when domestic action resumes on 26 December.

Trossard ranks fourth in the midfielder standings on the back of seven goals and three assists.

Fernandes in fine form

A host of Fantasy big-hitters are expected to be in action across Monday’s four matches.

Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes (£9.8m) will look to extend his fine all-round form when Portugal face Uruguay.

The Red Devils’ playmaker supplied two assists in his first match of the tournament, a 3-2 win over Ghana on Thursday.

Fernandes now has three goals and three assists in his last four matches for club and country.

Manchester City's trio of Joao Cancelo (£7.4m), Ruben Dias (£5.9m) and Bernardo Silva (£6.9m) are also expected to feature against a Uruguay team who include Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez (£9.0m).

Spurs' Brazilian Richarlison (£6.8m) faces Switzerland on the back of scoring twice against a Serbia side featuring Fulham forward Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.8m).

Richarlison’s domestic team-mate Son Heung-min (£11.6m), meanwhile, looks set to feature for South Korea against Ghana.
