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

Jamie Vardy (LEI) £9.1m

The forward’s goals could be more crucial than ever this weekend as Leicester City bid to avoid relegation.

Leicester must defeat West Ham United at King Power Stadium and hope other results go their way in order to retain their Premier League status.

If there’s any chance Leicester can escape the bottom three, Vardy will very likely have a part to play.

Encouragingly for Dean Smith’s side, the forward has blanked in only one of his last three home encounters.

Vardy supplied an assist in a 2-1 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers and scored in a 2-2 draw with Everton in that run.

The statistics also back up Vardy's influence since Smith took charge in Gameweek 31.

Vardy’s six big chances are more than any other Leicester player in that time, while his seven shots on target are joint-top with James Maddison (£7.8m).

Meanwhile, West Ham’s run to the UEFA Europa Conference League final has already resulted in heavy rotation by manager David Moyes.

Vardy looks primed to take advantage of any weakness from the visitors and get the goals that could yet help steer Leicester to safety.
