AFC Bournemouth winger is set to break out as a new bargain option, says The Scout

The Scout is selecting five Fantasy Premier League players set to make an impact in Gameweek 23.

Jordon Ibe (BOU) £4.8m

The winger’s best form for AFC Bournemouth could soon translate into big points in Fantasy.

Over the last four Gameweeks, Ibe has recorded 17 shots, more than any other FPL midfielder.

Indeed, only Mohamed Salah (£10.1m), with seven, can better Ibe’s six shots on target over that spell.

Starting spot

Ibe has also been a source of creativity for Eddie Howe’s men.

He has supplied 13 chances over those four matches, a total only Pascal Gross (£5.9m) can beat, with 14.

Howe is also showing faith in the player signed from Liverpool.

Ibe has been started five successive matches. Previously he had been in the teamsheet for only seven of the opening 17 Gameweeks.

League leading

Arsenal are AFC Bournemouth's next opponents.

The Gunners have been vulnerable in defence over their last four matches, conceding eight goals.

Arsene Wenger’s side have also allowed 46 shots from inside the penalty area over that time. Only West Ham United (47) have conceded more.

And Ibe has helped the Cherries fire 50 shots from inside the box since Gameweek 19, more than any other Premier League attack.

Window for points

His potential for points extends well beyond Sunday’s contest.

After Arsenal, four of Ibe’s next five opponents score only two in the Fixture Difficulty Rankings (FDR).

Currently owned by less than 20,000 managers, his recent performances have gone unnoticed.

But with the statistics pointing at goals and assists to come, Ibe presents a fresh cut-price option with the prospect of strong points-per-million returns.
