GW4 Ones to watch: Sebastien Haller

The Scout says West Ham striker has the form and fixtures to be a big success in the coming months

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 4 of Fantasy Premier League.

Sebastien Haller (WHU) £7.4m

The Frenchman is starting to show why West Ham United broke their transfer record to sign him this summer.

Haller endured a frustrating first two Gameweeks, blanking against Manchester City then missing their trip to Brighton & Hove Albion with a minor knock.

But his return to their line-up at Watford last weekend made all the difference.

He scored twice at Vicarage Road, earning 13 FPL points and helping the Hammers to their first win of 2019/20.

Haller was a big success in last season's Bundesliga, producing 15 goals and nine assists for Eintracht Frankfurt.

The underlying statistics further highlight his major all-round potential.

Haller converted 28.3 per cent of his shots last term, a figure better than any FPL forward who scored more than three goals.

He also created 13 big chances. Only Raul Jimenez (£7.4m) and Callum Wilson (£7.9m) matched that total among FPL forwards.

Favourable fixtures

A home encounter with Norwich City looks promising for Haller's FPL prospects this weekend.

The Canaries have conceded eight goals and 19 shots on target. Both those totals are worse than any other side in the opening three Gameweeks.

West Ham's subsequent schedule offers further encouragement.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), only two of their next nine opponents score more than three.

6 MUN (H) 4 11 NEW (H) 2
7 BOU (A) 3 12 BUR (A) 2
8 CRY (H) 3      

That may give Haller the platform to build on last weekend's two-goal haul and become a key figure up front for FPL managers.
