The Scout says Burnley midfielder's set-plays can be decisive at home to AFC Bournemouth

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 6 of Fantasy Premier League

Burnley will look to their playmaker to unlock AFC Bournemouth's defence at Turf Moor.

The Clarets have scored only three goals in the first five Gameweeks.

But they have recorded 23 shots from set-plays, ranking joint-top with Manchester City.

Gudmundsson's delivery has been a major weapon.

He has produced seven successful crosses, more than any team-mate.

And his corner kick supplied the assist for James Tarkowski's (£5.0m) headed goal at home to Watford in Gameweek 2.

Creative spark

The Icelandic international was a big source of creativity for Sean Dyche's side last season.

No player bettered his total of 36 created chances from dead-ball situations in the Premier League.

AFC Bournemouth's defensive record will offer further encouragement for Gudmundsson and Burnley.

The Cherries have managed only one clean sheet this season.

And they arrive having conceded 17 shots from set-plays. Only five sides have allowed more.

Gudmundsson looks well placed to exploit that potential weakness and provide a low-cost source of points.
