The Scout says AFC Bournemouth defender can be a big success at both ends of the pitch against Newcastle

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 31 in Fantasy Premier League.

Nathan Ake (BOU) £5.1m

The AFC Bournemouth centre-back is owned by only 6.2 per cent of FPL managers heading into Saturday's home match with Newcastle United.

Ake offers big all-round potential in both attack and defence.

The Dutchman has already surpassed his two-goal haul from last season, finding the net on three occasions this term.

His underlying statistics show why.

Ake's 20 shots inside the penalty area ranks among the top 10 defenders in FPL.

Clean-sheet potential

He has also benefited from an improvement in AFC Bournemouth's resilience at Vitality Stadium.

The Cherries have claimed three clean sheets in their last six home matches, and Newcastle's record on the road suggests they can add to that tally.

The Magpies arrive having scored just one goal in their last three matches away from St James' Park.

Combined with his goal threat, that can lead to a successful weekend for Ake.
