The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 2 in Fantasy Premier League.

Emiliano Buendia (NOR) £6.0m

The Norwich City midfielder is owned by just 0.7 per cent of managers for his home match against Newcastle United.

But he is already off the mark in FPL, having supplied the assist when Teemu Pukki (£6.5m) scored in the season opener at Liverpool.

Buendia's underlying statistics from Gameweek 1 highlight his influence.

The Argentinian's two shots on target was a match-leading figure on Friday night. And no player bettered his total of three chances created at Anfield. 

Buendia's output in last season's Championship further highlights his potential.

Championship returns

The winger produced eight goals and 12 assists as the Canaries won the title.

He also created 91 chances in 2018/19, while his average of 31.4 minutes per key pass was bettered by only three FPL midfielders with 1,000+ minutes.

After impressing at Liverpool's fortress, Buendia can now help steer Norwich to victory in their first home match of the campaign.
