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

Oleksandr Zinchenko (ARS) £5.2m

The left-back has been a key player at both ends of the pitch for Arsenal recently.

Zinchenko has combined a goal and an assist with three clean sheets over the last four Gameweeks.

He amassed 32 points across their five fixtures, second only to the 42 of teammate Gabriel Martinelli (£6.6m).

The underlying numbers reflect Zinchenko’s huge influence on Arsenal's attack in that run.

He created eight chances, joint-second with Bukayo Saka (£8.5m), for the Gunners.

Zinchenko also recorded seven shots, a total bettered by only three other Arsenal players.

His recent statistics also fare well when compared with his previous displays.

Zinchenko's three shots on target in the last four Gameweeks matches his total from the opening 23.

And his 52 minutes per chance created is more than twice as fast as his previous average of 117 minutes.

Home advantage?

Arsenal's short-term schedule looks very encouraging for Zinchenko's prospects.

They have two favourable home matches against Crystal Palace and Leeds United over the next two Gameweeks.

Both these opponents have struggled in attack recently. 

Palace face Brighton & Hove Albion in the second match of their Double Gameweek 27 on Wednesday evening having failed to score in three successive fixtures.

Leeds, meanwhile, have just three goals in their last six road trips.

Combined with his attacking threat, Zinchenko can deliver big hauls over those two home encounters.
