The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 4 in Fantasy Premier League.

Emerson (CHE) £5.5m

The Chelsea defender is owned by only 2.3 per cent of managers for his home encounter with Sheffield United.

But he has impressed going forward under new head coach Frank Lampard

Emerson's total of six shots ranks joint-top among FPL defenders along with Lucas Digne (£6.0m) and Andrew Robertson (£7.0m).

And his four shots on target is double that of any other player in his position.

The Italy international has also been a standout creator, with his six key passes ranked among the top five defenders.

Shot-shy opponents

Sheffield United's struggles in attack raise their hosts' chances of a first clean sheet of 2019/20.

Chris Wilder's men have managed only 31 shots and 18 shots inside the penalty area in the opening three Gameweeks. Both those totals rank among the bottom four sides.

That boosts Emerson's potential as a big source of points at both ends of the pitch for Gameweek 4.
