The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 9 in Fantasy Premier League.
Alonso has seized his opportunity after being handed his first start of the season in Gameweek 5.
The underlying statistics highlight Alonso’s creativity.
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.
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.
