The Scout is tipping five players for big success in Double Gameweek 37 (DGW37) of Fantasy Premier League.

Richarlison (Spurs) £6.8m

The Brazilian is pushing for a return to the Tottenham Hotspur starting XI after his impact off the bench against Liverpool last weekend.

Richarlison delivered a nine-point haul in Spurs’ 4-2 loss at Anfield, scoring once and supplying the assist for Son Heung-min’s (£9.9m) goal.

His display against the Reds means the 26-year-old has been involved in 40 per cent of Spurs’ goals when selected this season, second only to the 45 per cent of Son.

The underlying numbers highlight Richarlison’s influence on Ange Postecoglou’s attack ahead of their encounters with Burnley and Manchester City.

His 141.9 minutes per goal is the quickest of any Spurs player this season. Indeed, despite playing almost 1,000 minutes fewer than Son, Richarlison has been supplied with 17 big chances, just one less than the South Korean’s 18.

Dan Burn (Newcastle) £4.7m

Newcastle United’s centre-back boasts strong potential at both ends of the pitch against Brighton & Hove Albion and Manchester United.

Burn’s chances of a clean sheet look more promising in his encounter with the Seagulls at St James’ Park. He has helped Newcastle keep eight shutouts in home matches this season, joint-top with Everton.

The defender’s major aerial threat also lifts his prospects at Old Trafford.

Burn’s 12 headed shots have been bettered by only seven other defenders in Fantasy this season. Man Utd, meanwhile, have conceded 190 shots from set-pieces in 2023/24, at least 19 more than any other side.

Joao Pedro (Brighton) £5.2m

The Brighton forward appears to have returned to form ahead of his DGW37 matches with Newcastle and Chelsea.

Joao Pedro ended a run of five blanks by scoring the Seagulls’ decisive goal in their 1-0 win over Aston Villa last weekend, his ninth strike of the campaign.

Despite his recent lack of output, the Brazilian has been a major all-round threat since returning from injury in Gameweek 31.

His 21 shots and 19 shots in the box both rank top for Brighton in their last six matches, while his 14 key passes place second, just behind the 15 of playmaker Pascal Gross (£6.1m).

Marc Cucurella (Chelsea) £4.8m

The left-back has stepped up his output ahead of Chelsea’s DGW37 encounters with Nottingham Forest and Brighton.

Cucurella has produced both his assists this season, and three of his four clean sheets, across the Blues’ last seven contests.

That run includes back-to-back clean sheets against Spurs and West Ham United in the last two Gameweeks, the first time this season Mauricio Pochettino’s side have achieved such a feat.

Cucurella’s potential for more assists fares well when assessed against other DGW37 defenders. Indeed, his five key passes from Gameweek 32 onwards rank joint-second against those rivals, just behind the seven of Man Utd’s Diogo Dalot (£5.2m).

Kevin De Bruyne (Man City) £10.5m

Three goals, three assists and 42 points in his last five appearances showcase the Belgian’s fine form ahead of Man City's encounters with Fulham and Spurs.

De Bruyne has allayed any fears over rotation by starting all five of those matches as Pep Guardiola’s side push for the title.

The underlying statistics across those matches only emphasise the midfielder’s huge all-round influence.

De Bruyne made 15 key passes, over twice the total of any team-mate, while his seven big chances created are more than any other player in Fantasy.

His 17 shots place joint-top with Erling Haaland (£14.2m) for Man City and his eight shots on target rank second only to the Norwegian’s 13.
