The Scout says Norwich City striker can build on FPL debut goal at Liverpool when he hosts Newcastle
The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 2 of Fantasy Premier League.
The Norwich City forward has been quick to announce himself to FPL managers.
Expectations were perhaps low for Pukki’s Gameweek 1 trip to Liverpool.
After all, the Reds boasted the most resilient home defence in the league last season, conceding only 10 goals at Anfield.
Pukki’s Anfield effort showed the eye for goal that made him the top scorer in last season’s Championship.
He scored 29 goals, while supplying a further nine assists.
The underlying statistics show why Pukki is such a key figure for the Canaries.
He fired 127 shots inside the penalty area in 2018/19, more than double the 58 of his nearest Norwich team-mate, Onel Hernandez (£5.5m).
Pukki’s opening-night performance has made him the third most-bought forward ahead of Gameweek 2, earning over 93,000 new owners for a home encounter with Newcastle United.
That suggests Pukki has the fixtures to build on his fast start and enjoy more success in August.
Tomorrow: John McGinn
