In Gameweek 31 of the Fantasy Premier League, the Scout predicts five players to score big.
Danny Ings (SOU) is worth £8.4 million.
Last weekend, the striker’s return to action against Burnley was crucial in Southampton’s comeback victory.
Ings scored once and added an assist in the 3-2 win, his first start since Gameweek 26.
That helped him to an 11-point haul, matching his season-high from Gameweek 2 against Tottenham Hotspur.
The numbers show why Ings is such an important player for Southampton.
Despite being limited to 21 starts due to injury this season, no teammate has matched his 46 shots or 36 box shots.
Ings has 22 shots on target, second only to Che Adams (£5.8m) who has 23.
In terms of goal frequency, he has been far more consistent than his teammate.
This season, Ings has scored every 197.6 minutes, compared to 310.9 minutes for Adams.
Ings was involved in a team-leading 46% of Southampton’s goals in 2020/21 when he was selected.
Getting into shape
The win over Burnley continued Southampton’s offensive improvement ahead of their trip to West Bromwich Albion.
They’ve scored eight goals in their last four Premier League games, including two against Manchester City on the road.
Their 59 shots and 25 shots on target in that time rank third and fourth, respectively, in the Premier League.
West Brom, on the other hand, has a poor defensive record, with only one clean sheet in their last four games.
Ings can take advantage of Southampton’s lack of resiliency and have a decisive impact once more.
