Carljohan Eriksson 4.8m
With 4 straight clean sheets in a row, Carljohan Eriksson is climbing up the goalkeeping ranks. In fact, 5 out of the 7 clean sheets Mjällby have kept this season has been with Eriksson guarding the goal, conceding just 6 goals in the 9 games he has featured in. In Gameweek 20 Halmstad comes to visit, and the away side have scored just 2 goals in their 7 last games.
Hjalmar Ekdal 6.1m
While clean sheets have been considerably less frequent for Djurgården in general lately, Hjalmar Ekdal has contributed with 2 clean sheets, 2 goals and 8 defensive bonus points in his 5 last appearances. The xG numbers (0.53 last two) suggests he has been quite lucky but at home to Degerfors, there should be opportunities for points on both ends of the pitch.
Mohanad Jeahze 6.3m
Having served his suspension, Mohanad Jeahze is now back just in time for a home encounter with Göteborg. Jeahze’s creative numbers are superb, and he has recorded 3 assists, and 7 offensive bonus points, in his 5 last games.
Alexander Milosevic 7.0m
Alexander Milosevic might not have the same bonus point appeal as compatriots Sotirios Papagiannopoulos and Erick Otieno, yet he offers a significant goal threat from set pieces. With 3 goals so far this season, can Sebastian Larsson find Milosevic on yet another corner as they travel to Kalmar?
Bjørn Paulsen 6.5m
The benching against Varberg should light a fire under Bjørn Paulsen, enough to make sure he is pushing for a start and more points at home to Göteborg. Paulsen has managed 13 defensive bonus points, 2 clean sheets, a goal and an assist in 9 appearances.
Magnus Eriksson 9.9m
A home fixture against Degerfors looks promising for Djurgården and Magnus Eriksson, who recorded a rare blank in Gameweek 19. In fact, his 2-pointer last week was the first GW-score under 4 points since GW1, and it would seem quite unlikely he gets less than that this week.
Edward Chilufya 6.9m
Edward Chilufya has managed just 4 goals this season from an xG of 6.4, which will surprise very few who have watched the electric winger miss gilt-edged chances all year. While the question remains if he will ever catch up to his expected numbers, the fact that he is still getting into good positions and taking shots (9 in the last 3) is encouraging.
Jonathan Levi 8.6m
The talented midfielder Jonathan Levi is really starting to kick into gear and while the impact of Christoffer Nymanmissing out yet again is still to be seen, the influence that born again Levi is having is clear for all to see. 1 goal, 3 assists, and 5 offensive bonus points in his 4 last games, traveling to a Sirius side still missing their first-choice goalkeeper.
Tobias Sana 8.5m
Creeping a bit under the radar for many managers, Tobias Sana has delivered 3 goals and 3 assists in his 5 last games. An away fixture to Hammarby promises goals at both ends, and Sana is likely to be involved in most things attack-wise for Göteborg.
Samuel Adegbenro 8.4m
Samuel Adegbenro is decisively less stealthy, sitting in just above 40% of all squads. Registering attacking returns in 7 out of his 8 last games, Adegbenro is in red hot form and even without Nyman the Norrköping attack should be able to pierce through Sirius defence.
Astrit Selmani 10.3m
Much like Chilufya, Astrit Selmani has underperformed on his expected goals this season, scoring 4 goals from and xG of 6.88. At home to a Göteborg side with 2 clean sheets in their last 10 games, Selmani should be able to find the back of the net.
Every week in the Scout Picks, a captain is selected from the 11 chosen players. The Captain Pick is meant to give some guidance into who has the biggest potential for points this Gameweek and who looks relatively safe, according to the Scout.
This Gameweek the Captain Pick is Magnus Eriksson who should have no trouble bouncing back against the team that has conceded the second most goals in the league.
