The Scout says Southampton midfielder offers strong all-round potential against Wolverhampton Wanderers

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 34 in Fantasy Premier League, ahead of Friday's 19:00 BST deadline.

James Ward-Prowse (SOU) £5.1m

The Southampton midfielder is owned by only 3.5 per cent of managers for his home match with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Ward-Prowse has been a key figure in Saints' revival under new manager Ralph Hasenhuttl.

His six goals from Gameweek 22 onwards are at least four more than any team-mate.

Indeed, that total is second only to the nine goals of Sadio Mane (£10.1m) among FPL midfielders.

Potential for assists

Ward-Prowse has also been Saints' standout creator in that run of matches, producing 21 key passes.

That highlights his importance against a Wolves defence that has conceded in each of their last 12 away fixtures.

Southampton's remaining schedule also looks encouraging as they bid to avoid relegation.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Rankings (FDR), all six of their remaining opponents score no more than three.

And with a Double Gameweek 35 to follow, Ward-Prowse can offer outstanding value for the run-in.
