The Scout is selecting three overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 6 in Fantasy Premier League.

Christian Atsu (NEW) £5.4m

The Newcastle United winger is owned by only 0.2 per cent of managers for his home match with Brighton & Hove Albion.

But he has seized his chance of a regular role after being handed his first start of the season in Gameweek 3.

Atsu has supplied an assist against both Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool in his three appearances.

And the underlying numbers highlight his contribution for Steve Bruce's side.

Eye for a pass

Atsu has created nine chances over Gameweeks 3 to 5, at least double the number of every other Newcastle player aside from the five of Joelinton (£5.9m).

Indeed, his total ranks second only to the 11 key passes of Manuel Lanzini (£6.6m) among FPL midfielders during that period.

Brighton arrive at St James' Park lacking resilience. They are without a clean sheet in the last four Gameweeks.

Atsu can profit from those frailties and offer managers a tempting option in the cut-price midfield bracket.
