The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 25 of 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League.

Alex Iwobi (EVE) £5.4m

The Everton midfielder has been one of the most creative players in 2022/23 Fantasy.

Iwobi recorded his seventh assist of the season in the Toffees’ 1-0 win over Leeds United last weekend.

That places him joint-fourth among all players in Fantasy, level with Martin Odegaard (£7.0m), Bruno Fernandes (£9.8m) and Christian Eriksen (£6.3m). 

Iwobi’s importance to Everton is further highlighted when assessed against his team-mates.

Indeed, no other Everton player has managed more than two assists in the opening 24 Gameweeks.

Encouraging fixtures

Iwobi’s potential in Fantasy is boosted by a Double Gameweek 25 against Aston Villa and Arsenal.

Everton face Villa, having won each of their two home matches under new manager Sean Dyche.

Villa, meanwhile, are in poor defensive form and have conceded at least three goals in each of their last three outings.

Although Everton then visit the Emirates Stadium in midweek, they will be encouraged by their 1-0 win over Arsenal in the reverse fixture in Gameweek 22, which was their first match under Dyche.

Top creator

The underlying statistics show Iwobi has been a key player for the new manager.

He has created eight chances over those last three Gameweeks, more than any other Everton player.

That suggests Iwobi’s creativity can prove decisive for the Toffees in their upcoming pair of matches.
