Which players are due a goal in Gameweek 31?

Picking out the players that look likely to score in an FPL gameweek is a big part of management. Using recent underlying stats from the Fantasy Football Scout, we assess which players are due a goal in Gameweek 31.

Recent FPL goals

Some attackers are in great form over their last four matches:

However, others are shooting and getting in the right places without having either luck or end product. So let’s look at the players who have met the following criteria over their last four league appearances:

  • No more than one goal
  • At least nine shots
  • At least two big chances
  • An expected goals (xG) tally of 1.10
  • An expected goal involvement (xGI) of 1.30

Due a goal in Gameweek 31

A few weeks of tiny lists barely worth writing about peaked last week, where only Joe Willock and injured duo Eddie Nketiah and Dominic Calvert-Lewin provided the minimum underlying figures.

Thankfully, Gameweek 30 brought a return to normality and we now have an extra five names.

Ranked by xG

Dominic Solanke sits on top, accumulating 17 shots and an xG of 3.30 over his last four outings. In fact, Bournemouth are getting amongst the goals, netting in seven of their last nine matches during their quest to stay up.

Throughout FPL, no player’s last six appearances have yielded more shots inside the box than Solanke’s 19. Although just one of these has been a goal, his cheap £5.5m price is a good way to enable more premium assets elsewhere, as the Cherries’ fixtures look good from Gameweek 32.

Second to Solanke’s 19 penalty area attempts is Kai Havertz on 18. However, as shown on Saturday with Ben Chilwell, secure-looking Chelsea names could start having their minutes managed around these two Champions League quarter-finals.

Meanwhile, Joe Willock was discussed last week, Solly March‘s usefulness has already been noted by 46% of the top 100k and we’re still waiting for updates on Marcus Rashford‘s concerning groin injury.

As for Andreas Pereira, he is another name that could help managers who recently used their Bench Boost chips. Nice immediate fixtures if needed but the Brazilian can also bring in money if someone intends to grab Erling Haaland or Mohamed Salah.
