The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 28 of 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League.

Son has scored in two of Tottenham Hotspur's last four outings, netting against West Ham United in Gameweek 24 and at home to Nottingham Forest last weekend.

By contrast, he had struggled for consistency this season, scoring in only two of his previous 21 appearances. 

Son's finish v Forest

The underlying statistics show Son has stepped up his recent all-round influence on Spurs.

After the season returned, he averaged a shot every 46.5 minutes across Gameweeks 17-23.

However, that average has almost halved in Spurs’ subsequent four matches, with Son recording a shot every 24.1 minutes.

Meanwhile, his 20 minutes per chance created is seven times quicker than his previous average of 140. 

Top for Spurs 

Crucially, Son’s numbers also fare well when assessed against his team-mates.

Both his five shots on target and 10 key passes rank top for Spurs over Gameweeks 24-27.

Although Spurs have a favourable trip to Everton in Gameweek 29, they only play once when 12 other sides have two scheduled matches.

While that may restrict Son's appeal for managers looking to use free transfers, those on a Free Hit chip should consider him as a big-hitter for their midfield.

Son’s improving form and influence on Spurs' attack makes him an ideal one-Gameweek option for the trip to St Mary’s Stadium.
