The Scout says the Tottenham Hotspur defender is set for another big points haul

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 8 of Fantasy Premier League

Kieran Trippier (TOT) £6.2m

Tottenham Hotspur's attacking right-back has already supplied three double-digit FPL hauls in his six Gameweek appearances this season.

Trippier earned 11 points at Huddersfield Town in Gameweek 7, producing an assist and a clean sheet in his side's 2-0 win.

That helped him into third place in the FPL defenders' standings ahead of a home match with Cardiff City.

Interest soaring

Interest in Trippier is soaring for the meeting with the Bluebirds.

He is the most-bought defender for Gameweek 8, with over 107,000 managers acquiring him.

And that has boosted Trippier's ownership to 31.5 per cent, making him the sixth-most popular player in FPL.

Most popular FPL players
Player Club Owned by Points
Aguero MCI 52.2% 51
Alonso CHE 45.6% 54
Hazard CHE 41% 60
Mane LIV 39.7% 45
Salah LIV 38% 39
Trippier TOT 31.4% 39
Wan-Bissaka CRY 30.1% 29
Kane TOT 28.6% 44
Mitrovic FUL 27.6% 40
Robertson LIV 27.1% 43

The Spurs full-back has recorded one goal and three assists, in addition to two clean sheets.

Explosive potential

The underlying statistics indicate why Trippier is capable of explosive points hauls.

His total of 12 chances created is second only to the 15 of Jose Holebas (£4.9m) among FPL defenders.

The England international's prospects are further boosted by his set-piece duties.

Trippier has taken 20 corners and fired two shots on goal from direct free-kicks.

Off-colour Bluebirds

GW8 opponents Cardiff have struggled for a cutting edge this season.

They arrive at Wembley Stadium having scored one goal in their three away matches.

Combined with Trippier's attacking potential, that can lead to yet another significant haul for the popular defender.
