The Scout says Chelsea left-back has been among most creative FPL defenders in recent Gameweeks

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 9 in Fantasy Premier League.

Marcos Alonso (CHE) £6.2m

The Chelsea left-back is owned by just 2.8 per cent of FPL managers for his home match with Newcastle United.

Alonso has seized his opportunity after being handed his first start of the season in Gameweek 5.

The Spaniard has supplied an assist against both Wolverhampton Wanderers and Southampton.

The underlying statistics highlight Alonso’s creativity.

Assist potential

His seven key passes and five successful crosses both rank among the top five defenders over the last four Gameweeks.

Notably, his numbers also fare well when compared with last season, when he supplied eight assists.

Alonso has created a chance every 49 minutes this term, up from 84 minutes in 2018/19.

Possible clean sheet?

Newcastle arrive having lacked a cutting edge away from home, scoring just three goals. On the road, their eight shots on target ranks second-bottom.

Combined with his attacking potential, Alonso looks poised for a bumper haul.
