The Scout is tipping five players for big success in Gameweek 9 of 2023/24 Fantasy Premier League ahead of Saturday’s 11:00 BST deadline.
Bruno Fernandes (Man Utd) £8.4m
Fernandes’ 11 shots on target and 22 chances created both rank top for the Red Devils this campaign, highlighting his all-round influence on their attack.
Sheff Utd meanwhile, have conceded at least two goals in each of their last seven matches, including an 8-0 loss to Newcastle United in their last home encounter.
Fernandes' set-piece duties look set to pose big problems for the Blades, who have conceded 47 shots in such situations, more than any other side.
Morgan Gibbs-White (Nott’m Forest) £5.8m
Gibbs-White has had a team-leading six shots in the box in the last four Gameweeks, compared with only two in his first four matches.
His nine shots and seven chances created in that run are also more than any other Nott’m Forest player, highlighting his importance against the Hatters.
Luton’s defensive form on the road further strengthens Gibbs-White’s appeal.
Away from home, they have conceded nine goals, 58 shots in the box and 21 big chances. All three of those statistics put them among the bottom three sides this season.
Dominic Solanke (AFC Bournemouth) £6.4m
The forward has been AFC Bournemouth’s top performer in Fantasy under new head coach Andoni Iraola, accumulating 32 points.
Solanke has scored three goals and supplied an assist, blanking in back-to-back matches only once in the first eight Gameweeks.
He has been the Cherries' main goal threat by some margin recently, with his 12 shots and 11 shots in the box both more than double the tallies of any team-mate over the last four Gameweeks.
Solanke's visitors Wolverhampton Wanderers have conceded 51 shots in the box across that spell, the second-worst record in the league.
Anthony Gordon (Newcastle) £5.6m
The Newcastle winger has dropped to only 5.5 per cent ownership after serving a one-match ban in Gameweek 8.
That highlights Gordon’s appeal as a cut-price differential for the Magpies’ home match with Crystal Palace this weekend.
He has produced two goals, three assists and 33 points in his last five outings, blanking only once.
Newcastle also face Wolves and Bournemouth in the next four Gameweeks, giving Gordon the chance to make his mark as a standout budget midfielder.
Konstantinos Tsimikas (Liverpool) £4.4m
Tsimikas proved a capable deputy in Fantasy when handed an opportunity last season. He averaged 6.5 points per start at Anfield, combining two assists with three clean sheets over those four home outings.
His potential for assists will be lifted further if Robertson is ruled out of the Merseyside derby.
As a fellow left-footer, he is likely to be handed the Scot’s share of corner kicks against Everton. Robertson has taken 24 corners this season, more than any other Liverpool player.
