The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 27 of 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League.

Gabriel Martinelli (ARS) £6.5m 

The Brazilian is among a trio of Arsenal players who rank among the five top-scoring midfielders of the season.

Martinelli has amassed 142 points, just behind Bukayo Saka (£8.5m) and Martin Odegaard (£7.0m), who have 149 and 144 points respectively.

He has been Arsenal’s top performer in Fantasy recently, scoring four goals and earning a team-leading 34 points across their previous four outings.

Martinelli's potential for more goals could be lifted further by a role up front against Fulham this weekend.

Leandro Trossard (£6.6m) has started as Arsenal’s central attacker in each of their last three matches.

But the Belgian was forced off early in the 3-2 win over AFC Bournemouth in the previous Gameweek, allowing Martinelli to occupy the lone forward role.

Should Trossard fail to recover in time for the Cottagers’ match and with Gabriel Jesus (£7.9m) and Eddie Nketiah (£6.7m) injury doubts, Martinelli could retain that position for the short-term.

Arsenal’s upcoming run of opponents also offers encouragement for the 21-year-old.

Kind fixtures

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), each of their next three matches score only two.

That includes a very favourable home encounter with Crystal Palace in Blank Gameweek 28.

If Martinelli plays as a centre-forward over those next three matches, he could continue to outperform Saka and Odegaard.
