ICT Analysis: Gross a key creator

The Scout says Brighton playmaker could be a major differential for Double Gameweek 32 and beyond

The Scout runs the rule over Double Gameweek 32 players ranked highly over their last four matches in the ICT Index.

The Index helps Fantasy Premier League managers look beyond points to determine players' values as FPL assets through their Influence, Creativity and Threat.

Pascal Gross (BHA) £6.7m

The Brighton & Hove Albion playmaker has been the standout creator in midfield in his most recent matches.

Knockaert 152 10 10

Gross's totals of 18 chances created and 14 successful crosses over his last four Gameweek appearances are both more than any other player in FPL.

And his four big chances created are ranked joint-top in midfield along with Bernardo Silva (£7.5m) and Henrikh Mkhitaryan (£6.8m).

The German's free-kick and corner-kick duties can be a major weapon for the season run-in.

Set-piece specialist

No player bettered Gross's 36 chances created from set-pieces in 2017/18.

Brighton, meanwhile, have scored 13 goals from set-pieces this term, second only to the 18 of Liverpool.

Owned by only 1.6 per cent of managers, Gross is expected to recover from an ankle knock in time for his Double Gameweek 32 against Southampton and Chelsea.

Double delight

The Seagulls also play twice in Gameweek 34 and 35 and are the only side with three Double Gameweeks on their schedule.

That lifts Gross's appeal as a huge differential for the remainder of the season.
