The Fantasy Football Scout is here to preview the weekend’s fixtures and is on hand to give you all the top tips ahead of Gameweek 27. Here, we take a look at which Chelsea players should be in your side, who the most popular captain choice is and why Reece James is a must-have if you want to get ahead of the competition.
One to watch
Chelsea will be looking to do the double over London rivals, Tottenham Hotspur, in the first match of Gameweek 27 in Fantasy Premier League.
The Blues were triumphant in our previous encounter against Jose Mourinho’s side, with Willian (£7.1m) proving the decisive figure in our 2-0 away win just before Christmas.
The Brazilian scored both goals to earn his season-high haul of 16 FPL points in Gameweek 18.
His performances at Stamford Bridge point to more success for the 31-year-old.
At home, Willian’s totals of 30 shots and 18 chances created both place second for Chelsea this season.
A look at Spurs
That all-round contribution can hopefully again pose problems for Spurs when they visit on Saturday, a side who have struggled on their travels in 2019/20.
Indeed, they have managed just a single clean sheet in 13 away matches in the Premier League. While at the other end, their two top scorers, Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min, are both ruled out through injury.
The differentiator you need
The visitors’ problems in attack could potentially also help Reece James (£5.0m) extend his strong home form in FPL.
Owned by 0.7 per cent of managers, James has combined two assists with two clean sheets over his five starts at Stamford Bridge this term.
That has helped him average 5.2 points per home start.
FPL managers should look no further than Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) when considering the captaincy for Gameweek 27, who is the most popular captain choice according to the stats.
The Liverpool winger is on the back of an outstanding run of FPL form and is expected to start when West Ham United visit Anfield.
Salah has five double-figure hauls in his last 11 outings and the Egyptian has averaged 9.0 points match over his 12 home appearances this season.
