The Scout is tipping five players for big success in Gameweek 16 of Fantasy Premier League ahead of Saturday’s 11:00 GMT deadline.

Kaoru Mitoma (Brighton) £6.5m

A home match with Burnley gives the Brighton & Hove Albion winger the chance to continue his improved form.

Mitoma produced his second assist in his last two starts in the Seagulls’ midweek win over Brentford.
At home this season, his 12 shots in the box and 14 key passes both place second among team-mates.
That highlights Mitoma's all-round threat to a Burnley side with a single clean sheet to their name in 2023/24.

Darwin Nunez (Liverpool) £7.7m

The Uruguayan ended a run of back-to-back blanks by emerging from the bench to supply an assist in Liverpool’s 2-0 win at Sheffield United on Wednesday.

Having played just 23 minutes at Bramall Lane, Darwin looks set to return to the Reds’ starting XI away to Crystal Palace this weekend.
His totals of eight shots in the box and five shots on target are both identical to Mohamed Salah (£13.1m) in the last four Gameweeks, underlining his potential for goals.
Palace, meanwhile, have struggled in defence at Selhurst Park recently, conceding at least twice in each of their last three fixtures.

Alejandro Garnacho (Man Utd) £4.7m

A home encounter with AFC Bournemouth can allow Manchester United’s winger to offer more value in Fantasy.

Garnacho has started each of the last five Gameweeks, delivering a goal and an assist. 
His 14 shots and 13 shots in the box are both team-leading totals in that period, while his nine chances created rank second.
At a cost of just £4.7m, Garnacho’s potential for goals and assists offers a big saving for managers’ midfields.

Garnacho's stunning goal v Everton
Gabriel Jesus (Arsenal) £7.9m

Two goals and two assists in Arsenal’s last four fixtures in all competitions suggest the Brazilian is back to his best.

Jesus has been the Gunners’ standout attacker for goal threat over the last three Gameweeks in Fantasy.
His nine shots in the box and three big chances are both team-leading totals, while his six shots on target are at least twice that of any other Gunners’ player.
An ownership of under five per cent makes him a major differential for managers’ forward lines ahead of Arsenal’s clash with Aston Villa this weekend.

Jesus' goal v Luton
Willian (Fulham) £5.3m

The Brazilian entertains West Ham United in sparkling home form.

Willian has delivered 21 points over Fulham’s last two matches at Craven Cottage, scoring twice and supplying an assist.
Since making his first start of the season in Gameweek 5, his 21 shots, 12 shots in the box, 10 shots on target and 18 key passes all place among the Cottagers' top two players. 
That shows Willian's all-round potential as a route into a Cottagers side who have scored eight goals in their last two home matches.
