The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 5 in Fantasy Premier League.

Gylfi Sigurdsson (EVE) £7.8m

The Everton midfielder is owned by only 6.3 per cent of managers for his trip to AFC Bournemouth.

Sigurdsson has managed just one assist in the first four Gameweeks, leading to a major exodus of FPL managers.

Nearly 500,000 have parted company, resulting in a price drop of £0.2m.

Encouraging numbers

Yet his underlying statistics remain encouraging.

The Icelander has created 10 chances and had eight shots. Only Kevin De Bruyne (£9.8m), has bettered both those totals, with 16 and 12 respectively.

Sigurdsson travels to an AFC Bournemouth side who have failed to keep a clean sheet this season.

Eddie Howe's men have conceded eight goals, 21 shots on target and 14 big chances.

All three of those figures rank among the bottom three defences.

Sigurdsson can take full advantage of these frailties and reward the loyalty of his remaining FPL owners.
