The Scout is tipping five players for big success in Gameweek 15 of Fantasy Premier League ahead of Tuesday's 18:00 GMT deadline.

Martin Odegaard (Arsenal) £8.3m

The Arsenal playmaker boasts a strong all-round threat against Luton Town on Tuesday evening.

Odegaard has scored in each of the Gunners’ last two matches in all competitions since his recent recovery from injury, claiming a 10-point haul against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.

Notably, his total of six key passes in the win over Wolves was twice his previous best in any match this season.

That shows Odegaard's potential for goals and assists against a Luton side who have conceded a league-high 56 shots in the box in the last four Gameweeks.

Pedro Porro (Spurs) £5.3m

The Tottenham Hotspur full-back has been among the most consistent defenders in 2023/24 at both ends of the pitch, combining four assists with four clean sheets.

As a key figure under Ange Postecoglou, the right-back can now reward managers for many Gameweeks to come.

Porro is about to embark on a kind run of opponents that lifts his prospects of defensive and attacking returns.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), four of Spurs’ next six matches score a mere two, including their home match with West Ham United on Thursday evening.

Spurs' next six fixtures
GW Opp. FDR
15 WHU (H) 2
16 NEW (H) 4
17 NFO (A) 2
18 EVE (H) 2
19 BHA (A) 3
20 BOU (H) 2
Hwang Hee-chan (Wolves) £5.6m

Back-to-back home matches against Burnley and Nottingham Forest give the Wolves attacker the chance to provide big value in midfield.

Hwang has been a consistent performer at Molineux, blanking in only one of his six appearances.

He has amassed 38 points over those home encounters, scoring against top-six clubs Liverpool, Manchester City, Aston Villa and Newcastle United.

Meanwhile, the South Korean’s upcoming visitors have poor form on the road. Over their last three away matches, Burnley and Nott’m Forest have managed just a single point between them.

Joao Pedro (Brighton) £5.3m

Brighton & Hove Albion’s Brazilian has the form and short-term fixtures to appeal to managers who are on the lookout for a new forward.

Joao Pedro’s strike against Chelsea on Sunday took his tally to four goals in the Seagulls’ last three matches across all competitions.

Having featured as a substitute at Stamford Bridge, the 22-year-old now looks less likely to be rotated for back-to-back home encounters with Brentford and Burnley in the next few days.

Joao Pedro’s 13 shots in the box and four big chances both place top for Brighton in home matches this term, which lifts his prospects of more goals over the next two Gameweeks.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool) £8.0m

Back-to-back goals against Man City and Fulham suggest the Liverpool star is finally starting to justify his premium price tag in Fantasy.

Alexander-Arnold has amassed 28 points over the last three Gameweeks, combining two goals and an assist with a clean sheet and four bonus points.

His potential for multiple routes to returns looks very encouraging as the Reds now visit Sheffield United on Wednesday evening.

The Blades have conceded 57 shots on target in home matches, more than any other side.

Alexander-Arnold’s penchant for long-range shots looks set to pose big problems for his hosts and help extend his run of returns.
