GW14 Ones to watch: Xherdan Shaqiri

The Scout says Liverpool playmaker can continue fine Anfield form in Merseyside derby

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 14 of Fantasy Premier League.

Xherdan Shaqiri (LIV) £7.0m

The summer signing from Stoke City has been gradually phased into the Liverpool side by manager Jurgen Klopp.

But Shaqiri has started the last two Gameweeks, scoring in his previous home match against Fulham.

His impact suggests he can secure a starting role for the visit of Everton.

Steady points

Owned by only 2.8 per cent of managers, Shaqiri has offered a steady supply of points in recent matches.

He has produced a goal or an assist in five of his last seven Gameweek appearances.

Home comforts

At home, in particular, Shaqiri has excelled, producing two goals and a pair of assists in his last three appearances at Anfield.

His home statistics highlight the Swiss's potential in Fantasy.

Shaqiri's 23.3 minutes per shot is bettered, and only marginally, by the 22.4 of Mohamed Salah (£13.0m).

Creative spark

And his average of 41 minutes per chance created is quicker than any team-mate with more than one Anfield start.

Everton make the short trip across Stanley Park having struggled to keep out their opponents on their travels.

They have only one clean sheet in six away matches, conceding two goals on four occasions.

Shaqiri can seize upon that lack of resilience and thrive as a mid-price source of points this Gameweek.
