The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 24 of 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League.

Kelechi Iheanacho (LEI) £6.1m

A return to the Leicester City first XI has revived the forward’s fortunes in Fantasy.

Iheanacho had started just one of the Foxes’ first 20 matches, against Brighton & Hove Albion in Gameweek 6.

Despite scoring and earning six points on that occasion, he had to wait until Gameweek 22 for his next start.

The Nigerian has seized his opportunity by producing back-to-back double-figure hauls in a 4-2 win at Aston Villa and 4-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur.

He combined two goals with three assists in those encounters to total 27 points.

The underlying statistics also show Iheanacho’s impact on the Leicester attack.

His six shots and six shots in the box were more than any team-mate over the last two Gameweeks, with the latter total at least twice that of any other Foxes player.

He also created three big chances, more than any other forward in Fantasy during that period.

Brendan Rodgers’ men have also been boosted by the recent return from injury of James Maddison (£8.0m).

Indeed, Leicester’s total of eight goals across their last two matches is more than any other side.

That suggests they can take advantage of a promising match-up at Manchester United this weekend.

The Red Devils have struggled for clean sheets at home recently, collecting only one in their last five outings across all competitions.

As the focal point of Leicester’s free-scoring attack, Iheanacho looks primed for more returns.
