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

Pascal Gross (BHA) £5.5m

A visit to Crystal Palace lifts the prospects of Brighton & Hove Albion’s key players this weekend.

Kaoru Mitoma (£5.2m) is the most-bought player in the Gameweek, earning 231,000+ transfers in following four goals and an assist in his last five appearances. 

However, Gross could also prove decisive at Selhurst Park on Saturday.

The German has already scored six goals this season, just one away from matching his best-ever haul of seven in 2017/18.

Although he has managed only three assists, Gross has been the Seagulls’ standout creator in the current campaign.

His total of 41 key passes is far superior to his nearest rival Solly March (£5.2m), who has created only 27 chances and registered six assists.

Gross’ delivery from free-kicks and corners can take advantage of a Palace defence who have struggled without influential centre-back Joachim Andersen (£4.5m) recently.

The Dane has been sidelined through injury since being substituted in the first match of their Double Gameweek 20.

Palace have subsequently conceded a league-high 26 shots from set-pieces in their last four contests.

Furthermore, their total of 12 headed shots conceded in that period is second only to the 13 of Tottenham Hotspur.

Added to his goal threat, Gross’ delivery can help him to a bumper haul for Roberto De Zerbi’s in-form side this weekend.
