The Scout is tipping five players for big success in Gameweek 4 of 2023/24 Fantasy Premier League ahead of Friday’s 18:30 BST deadline.

Jarrod Bowen (West Ham) £7.0m

The West Ham United star visits Luton Town on Friday in prolific away form.

Bowen has scored in both of his road trips this season, totalling 21 points against AFC Bournemouth and Brighton & Hove Albion, thanks to two goals and an assist.

The underlying statistics show why he has been an early-season success.

Bowen’s totals of 11 shots, eight shots in the box and five shots on target are all more than any team-mate.

His hosts, meanwhile, have struggled defensively in their maiden Premier League campaign, conceding at least three goals in both of their matches.

Kyle Walker (Man City) £5.1m

A home encounter with Fulham lifts the all-round potential of Manchester City’s right-back.

Walker is the only defender to start in each of the first three Gameweeks for the champions, collecting a clean sheet against both Burnley and Newcastle United in that run.

A new role in the opening matches has significantly boosted his potential for assists. 

In the final third, Walker’s successful passes per match have almost doubled from last season, rising from 9.8 to 19.0.

This has helped him create five chances over the first three Gameweeks, just one fewer than his total for all of last season. 

Destiny Udogie (Spurs) £4.6m

The Tottenham Hotspur left-back offers multiple routes to returns at Burnley.

Udogie has been a key figure in a new-look Spurs defence that has kept clean sheets against Manchester United and AFC Bournemouth in their last two matches.

The Italian also supplied an assist and earned maximum bonus in the 2-0 win at Bournemouth last weekend, collecting 12 points.

Spurs also face Sheffield United in the next two Gameweeks, marking Udogie out as a big source of value in Fantasy.

Raheem Sterling (Chelsea) £7.1m

Managers have rushed to the Chelsea winger after his two goals, assist and 19 points against Luton.


TV Info - Broadcasters

Sterling is the most-bought player in the Gameweek, earning a huge 647,000+ new owners for a home encounter with Nottingham Forest.

The underlying numbers show Sterling upped his goal threat considerably in Gameweek 3.

He had five shots inside the box against Luton, compared with only one in the Blues’ first two matches.

Forest, meanwhile, arrive at Stamford Bridge in poor defensive form on the road.

Sterling's first goal v Luton

They have conceded at least twice in both of their away matches, losing on each occasion.

Carlton Morris (Luton) £5.5m

Luton’s first home match of 2023/24 gives the forward the opportunity to make his mark as a budget option in Fantasy.

Morris was a key figure in the Hatters’ promotion from the Championship last season, scoring 20 of their 57 goals and assisting a further seven.


TV Info - Broadcasters

He has already hinted at that form with a goal and eight points against Brighton in Gameweek 1, one of only two matches Luton have played so far due to their Blank Gameweek 2.

Morris can exploit a West Ham side who have struggled to limit their opponents’ goal attempts this season.

They have allowed 56 shots in the first three Gameweeks, the third-most in the competition.
