The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 5 of Fantasy Premier League.

Lucas Moura (TOT) £7.3m

The Tottenham Hotspur winger has been the top midfield target in FPL over the international break.

More than 263,000 managers have bought Lucas for his Saturday lunchtime home encounter with Liverpool.

The Brazilian has thrived alongside Harry Kane (£12.5m) in Mauricio Pochettino’s new two-man frontline.

August's EA SPORTS Player of the Month has three goals and an assist from his first four appearances, including a double and 15 FPL points against Manchester United in Gameweek 3.

Growing threat

When assessed against last season, his attacking threat is clearly on the rise.

The Brazilian is averaging a shot inside the opposition penalty area every 84.5 minutes this term.

He managed just a single shot inside the box over his 208 minutes in 2017/18.

Big chances

Lucas has also impressed when it comes to recording big chances, or situations where the player is expected to score.

His total of three big chances is bettered only by Mohamed Salah’s (£13.0m) five among FPL midfielders.

That eye for goal could be decisive as Spurs look for a repeat of last season’s 4-1 home win over the Reds.
