The Scout says Tottenham Hotspur's attacking midfielder can be a cut-price success during a kind run of fixtures

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 7 in Fantasy Premier League.

Erik Lamela (TOT) £6.1m

The Tottenham Hotspur attacking midfielder is owned by only 5.3 per cent of managers for his home match with Southampton.

Lamela appears to have secured his role as a regular for the north London side this season.

He has started all six of the opening Gameweeks, compared with his total of nine starts over the 2018/19 campaign.

Taking his chance

The Argentinian has profited from his improved pitch time, scoring twice and supplying two assists.

Put into perspective, he managed only four goals and four assists last season.

The statistics also highlight Lamela's all-round threat for Mauricio Pochettino's men.

Assessed against his team-mates, his nine shots on goal rank fourth, while his nine chances created are bettered only by the 10 of Christian Eriksen (£8.8m).

Fixture appeal

Spurs' upcoming schedule also raises the appeal of investing in their attackers.

All three of their next opponents score only two in the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR).

At a cost of only £6.1m, Lamela's regular role can make him a bargain buy in FPL midfields.
