Who has The Scout picked out to watch this week?

  • IVAN TONEY

Writing for the Premier League, The Scout has said: “The Brentford striker’s form has improved recently, with both his goals and his two assists this season coming in the last five Gameweeks.

“Toney is about to enter a very favourable stretch of opponents who can help extend his upturn in output.”

Toney was Brentford’s top scorer in last season’s Championship scoring 31 goals and producing 10 assists.

  • ADAM ARMSTRONG

Southampton signed their forward in the summer following Armstrong’s incredible success with Blackburn Rovers in the 2020/2021 Championship season.

Armstrong scored 28 goals and produced five assists for his former club.

The Scout writes “Although Armstrong has endured a slow start to the season, producing only one goal and one assist, the forward has represented the main goal threat for Saints.”

Armstrong has had 21 shots in the box, seven of which were on target, which is only second to West Ham United’s Michail Antonio who has 27 among the fantasy forwards.

  • HWANG HEE-CHAN

Since scoring twice against Newcastle in Wolverhampton Wanderers last match Hwang Hee-Chan has earned over 161,000 new owners making him the most bought forward in Gameweek.

In his four appearances for Wolves, Hee-Chan has scored three times allowing Wolves to achieve the three points necessary in both games.

The Scout writes “he has outscored premium forward Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.6m) by 24 points to 22 since both made their first appearance of the campaign in Gameweek 4”

Who has the FPL predicted as the next big hot streaks?

Phil Foden is also one to watch out for the in coming weeks.
  • PHIL FODEN

In Foden’s two starts for Manchester City, he has had two goal attempts creating massive chances for his club. He is the current top Man City midfielder for top expected goals and top expected goal attempts.

The following matches against Burnley and Crystal Palace will give Foden even more opportunity to score extra points returns.

  • MASON MOUNT

Mount has had a relatively slow start for Chelsea due to injury but has returned in full force remaining central to the creativity of Chelsea. He is constantly providing chances in the box for other strikers, predominantly Romelu Lukaku.

  • SON HEUNG-MIN 

While constantly being a good option to invest in, the last few matches in all competitions, Son has provided chances, scored goals and will look to go big in the next match

  • RAUL JIMENEZ 

In Jimenez’s last two games, he has had one goal and two assists and these figures are set to rise in Wolves next few games. His overall confidence has grown increasingly and he has incredible stats for this season.
