The Scout is tipping players to produce big points in Gameweek 11 of Fantasy Premier League.

Gerard Deulofeu (WAT) £5.4m

The Spaniard’s return from injury has coincided with an improvement in form for Watford.

They have won each of the last two Gameweeks with Deulofeu in the starting XI, scoring five goals and earning back-to-back clean sheets.

Prior to that, Javi Gracia's men picked up just one point in four matches over Gameweeks 5-8.

Deulofeu's impact on the teamsheet has resulted in a slight change of set-up for Watford.

Tactical tweak

Gracia has tweaked his tactics to a 4-2-3-1, allowing Deulofeu the central support role behind Isaac Success (£4.5m).

The former Barcelona man has flourished.

Deulofeu has fired five shots over those two fixtures, joint-top with Success and Roberto Pereyra (£6.4m).

Indeed, all three players were on the scoresheet in Watford's 3-0 home win over Huddersfield Town last weekend.

Since returning to action as a late substitute in Gameweek 8, Deulofeu has averaged a shot every 30 minutes for the Hornets.

Scoring opportunities

That underlines his attacking potential for Saturday's visit to Newcastle United.

The Magpies have struggled defensively this season, failing to keep a clean sheet in their five home matches.

Rafa Benitez's side rank fourth bottom for shots faced, with a total of 154.

Deulofeu has the form to punish their defence and offer a cut-price source of FPL points for Gameweek 11.
