The Scout is tipping five players for big success in Gameweek 22 of Fantasy Premier League ahead of Tuesday's 18:00 GMT deadline.

Kyle Walker (Man City) £5.4m

A run of four home matches in the next five Gameweeks gives the Manchester City full-back the chance to bring in returns at both ends of the pitch.

Pep Guardiola’s side entertain Burnley and Everton before their pair of Double Gameweek 25 home encounters with Chelsea and Brentford.

Walker approaches this period as Man City’s top-scoring defender in Fantasy, combining two assists with five clean sheets.

Notably, he has offered far more potential for goals and assists when compared with the previous campaign. Walker’s 11 shots and 16 key passes are already more than twice his respective totals of five and six from 2022/23.

James Maddison (Spurs) £7.8m

The Tottenham Hotspur playmaker returned to action on Friday with an appearance off the bench against Manchester City in the FA Cup.

Maddison now look set to make his first outing since Gameweek 11 when Spurs host Brentford on Wednesday evening. 

He was one of the most consistent players in Fantasy prior to sustaining injury, with three goals and six assists in his first 10 outings under Ange Postecoglou.

That includes two assists and a nine-point haul against Brentford back in Gameweek 1.

Alfie Doughty (Luton) £4.5m

The Luton Town wing-back offers strong all-round potential at home to Brighton & Hove Albion.

Doughty has amassed 38 points in his last six matches, joint-second among defenders along with Trent Alexander-Arnold (£8.5m). 

The Hatters star has scored once and supplied five assists in that spell, also collecting one clean sheet and six bonus points.

That underlines his many routes to returns against a Seagulls side who have failed to score in their last two league encounters.

Matheus Cunha (Wolves) £5.8m

Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Brazilian has the home form to pose major problems for Manchester United.

Cunha has blanked just once in his last five appearances at Molineux, earning 32 points thanks to two goals and three assists. 

In home matches this season, his 20 shots, 11 shots on target and five big chances created are all team-leading totals for Wolves.

That underlines Cunha’s all-round potential against a Man Utd side who have conceded twice in four successive matches.

The forward further underlined his form on Sunday afternoon by scoring Wolves' second goal in a 2-0 FA Cup fourth-round win over West Bromwich Albion.

Diogo Jota (Liverpool) £7.9m

Liverpool’s Portuguese midfielder hosts Chelsea in his most consistent form of the season.

Jota has produced attacking returns in three successive Gameweeks for the first time in 2023/24 Fantasy. 

That includes a bumper haul of 19 points against AFC Bournemouth last time out, thanks to two goals and an assist.

The 27-year-old's growing influence in the absence of Mohamed Salah (£13.1m) was again evident in the Reds’ FA Cup fourth-round meeting with Norwich City on Sunday, with Jota scoring their third in a 5-2 victory.

Chelsea’s defensive record on the road gives Jota every opportunity to maintain his recent momentum.

The Blues are without a clean sheet in their last seven away matches, conceding at least twice in each of their previous five encounters.
