Manager Chris Wilder hasn’t even played Mousset a full 90-minute match this season but the striker has had a hand in a goal every 42 minutes for Sheffield United when on the pitch. The striker is playing extremely well and it begs the question just how well he could do playing a full match.

Sheffield United defeated Burnley 3-0 in gameweek 11 with Mousset tallying three assists in a mere 64 minutes of football. It was the most gametime Mousset had accumulated this season in a single match. It allowed Mousset to tally 13 Fantasy Premier League points.

Mousset’s best FPL season previously came as a member of Bournemouth in 2017-18. His two goals in 581 minutes of football led to 36 FPL points. Mousset can shatter his previous FPL personal best in gameweek 12 when Sheffield United play Tottenham Hotspur.

Despite Spurs traditionally being a top Premier League team, there are issues all over the pitch at the club. Sheffield United will fancy their chances against Spurs, especially with the London club conceding 16 goals already this season. The Blades are three points ahead of Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League table and could extend their lead in gameweek 12.

Lys Mousset is a bargain for gameweek 12 at just £4.9 million in FPL play. The striker’s fee has actually decreased from the start of the season from £5m down to £4.9m. Another big weekend last gameweek 11’s 13 point haul and Mousset’s price will be rising and not falling.

Until recently, Mousset had not found the back of the net with regularity in England. His best season in front of goal has come this term as his three goals in 10 games has equalled 2017-18’s three strikes in 29 matches.

To see Mousset’s best-ever season in front of goal, you would need to go back to 2015-16 when he played four Ligue 2 team Le Havre. Mousset tallied 14 goals in 29 games. Bournemouth pounced on his after that season but until this season had failed to come to grips with the play in the Premier League.

Now, with 35 FPL points to his name and one of the league’s most in-form attackers, Lys Mousset could be ready for big things in the Premier League for gameweek 12.
