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

Bukayo Saka (ARS) £8.4m

The winger’s consistency makes him a strong choice for the captaincy in Gameweek 25.

Arsenal are among only four sides set to play twice, visiting Leicester City this weekend before hosting Everton on Wednesday.

Saka and Martin Odegaard (£7.0m) are the Gunners’ top-scoring players in 2022/23, with near-identical totals of 132 and 131 points respectively.

However, Saka has proved far more reliable for output, having blanked in only seven of his 23 appearances this season.

Odegaard, by contrast, has blanked in 11 of his 22 appearances, or 50 per cent.

All-round threat

The underlying numbers show Saka has boasted the greater all-round among Arsenal attackers this term.

His totals of 43 shots in the box and 50 chances created both place among their top two players.

Having returned to the top of the league last weekend, Arsenal will hope to take advantage of their extra match in hand over title rivals Manchester City.

Certainly, their two upcoming opponents have both struggled in defence.

Leicester have leaked 10 goals in their last five outings, and conceded at least twice in four of those matches, while Everton have managed to keep only one clean sheet on the road this season.

Saka’s potential for both goals and assists looks set to profit from those encounters, making him a key captaincy pick for Double Gameweek 25.
