The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in the final Gameweek 38 of 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League.

Bryan Mbeumo (BRE) £5.6m

The Frenchman has stepped up his output for Brentford in the absence of Ivan Toney (£7.2m).

Mbeumo has scored three goals and supplied an assist in the last two Gameweeks, which includes his season-high haul of 16 points against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend.

Those displays highlight his importance to Brentford when Toney has been missing this season.

Mbeumo has scored in all four matches without his fellow forward, totalling 43 points thanks to five goals and two assists. 

The underlying statistics also highlight his growing goal threat.

Mbeumo's totals of 12 shots, 11 shots in the box and six shots on target were all team-leading totals over the last two Gameweeks.

Indeed, he ranked second among all players in Fantasy for each of those three statistics across that period.

With Toney suspended, Mbeumo looks set to pose a major threat to Manchester City this weekend.

As evidenced by Pep Guardiola’s starting XI against Chelsea last weekend, the champions could continue to rotate ahead of their upcoming cup finals against Manchester United and Inter Milan.

Mbeumo has the form to pose big problems on Sunday and can deliver another sparkling display against Man City.
