The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 27 of 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League.
Wilfried Zaha (CRY) £7.2m
After a short spell on the sidelines, Crystal Palace's talisman made a timely return from injury last weekend.
The Ivory Coast international enjoyed the most productive season of his Fantasy career in 2021/22, earning 150 points thanks to 14 goals and two assists.
He has struggled to reach those heights this season and his 79 points rank third among Palace’s outfield players, behind fellow midfielders Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise (both £5.4m).

However, the new Expected Goal Involvement (xGI) statistics help to show Zaha’s potential.
Zaha has an xGI score of of 7.23, which shows the number of combined goals and assists he is expected to have by now, based on his performances.
That is the highest score of any Palace player, while his average of 242.2 minutes per xGI is over 80 minutes quicker than both Eze and Olise.
Palace's xGI analysis
|Player||xGI||FPL goals & assists||Mins/xGI|
Palace’s encounter with Brighton looks particularly encouraging for Zaha’s prospects.
He averages 6.4 points per match against the Seagulls, having scored five goals in eight outings.
In addition, the Eagles have a reasonable record against Man City under Patrick Vieira, scoring twice in two of their three meetings since the Frenchman took charge.
As underlined by the xGI numbers, the fit-again Zaha is the most likely Palace player to profit from the club's two Gameweek 27 fixtures.
