The Scout says Palace star has the goal threat to exploit Nottingham Forest's poor away record

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

Eberechi Eze (CRY) £5.6m

The 24-year-old has been a standout performer in Fantasy since the return of Roy Hodgson at Crystal Palace.

Eze has scored six goals and supplied two assists in the Eagles’ subsequent nine matches.

That has helped him total 65 points from Gameweek 29 onwards, second only to the 80 of Mohamed Salah (£13.1m) among midfielders in Fantasy.

Eze since Hodgson's return
  Total  FPL midfield rank
Points 65 2
Shots 25 6
Shots on target 13 =1
Key Passes 17 =13

The underlying numbers show why Eze has been so successful in FPL over that period.

His 25 shots and 13 shots on target are both team-leading totals, with the latter figure being more than twice that of any other Eagles player.

He has also supplied 17 key passes, second only to the 22 of Michael Olise (£5.3m) for Palace.

Eze’s statistics also fare well when assessed against other midfielders in Fantasy over the same run of matches.

His 25 shots place sixth, while his 13 shots on target are joint-top along with Salah.

In the final Gameweek of 2022/23, Palace entertain a Nottingham Forest side who have struggled in defence on their travels for a long time.

Indeed, the visitors have conceded at least twice in each of their last eight road trips.

As the focal point of the Palace attack, Eze looks set to exploit those weaknesses and end the season on a high.
