The Scout says West Ham striker has fixtures that simply cannot be ignored

The Scout singles out players who can be key Fantasy Premier League options for managers over the busy festive period.

Marko Arnautovic (WHU) £7.1m

The West Ham United forward’s potential is set to be raised significantly by a very favourable schedule from Gameweek 14.

West Ham's opponents GW14-21
14 NEW (A) 18 WAT (H)
15 CAR (H) 19 SOU (A)
16 CRY (H) 20 BUR (A)
17 FUL (A) 21 BHA (H)

Arnautovic faces a testing home encounter with Manchester City this weekend.

But from thereafter seven of his next eight matches score only two in the Fixture Difficulty Rankings (FDR).

High points average

The Austria international has offered a steady source of points this season.

He has five goals and two assists in his 10 Gameweek appearances.

Indeed, Arnautovic’s average of 5.2 points per match is ranked fourth among forwards in FPL.

His underlying statistics showcase the form of the Hammers striker.

Target man

The 29-year-old's total of 16 shots on target is ranked third among FPL forwards.

And only five rivals have bettered his 14 chances created.

Costing just £7.1m, he can be a snip at the price for the extended winter period.
