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

Cesar Azpilicueta (CHE) £5.9m

The Chelsea right-back is owned by just 5.9 per cent of managers for his home match with Brighton & Hove Albion.

Azpilicueta has shown plenty of attacking intent under new head coach Frank Lampard.

The Spaniard has supplied an assist in two of the opening six Gameweeks, against Norwich City in Gameweek 3 and in last weekend’s home encounter with Liverpool.

His underlying statistics further highlight his potential.

Attacking threat

Azpilicueta has created 11 chances, just behind the 12 of Mason Mount (£6.5m) for the Blues.

That total also fares well when compared with other FPL defenders.

Only Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.1m) and Lucas Digne (£6.1m) have bettered Azpilicueta’s 11 key passes, producing 23 and 13 respectively.

Chelsea's Gameweek 7 meeting with Brighton boosts their chances of earning their first clean sheet of 2019/20.

The Seagulls have scored only two goals in the last five Gameweeks.

That raises Azpilicueta's potential for points at both ends of the pitch on Saturday afternoon.
