GW11 Differentials: Joao Cancelo

The Scout says Man City full-back can deliver points at both ends of the pitch at home to Southampton

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 11 in Fantasy Premier League.

Joao Cancelo (MCI) £5.3m

The Manchester City defender is owned by just 1.4 per cent of FPL managers ahead of his side's home encounter with Southampton.

Cancelo appears to have claimed the right-back role ahead of Kyle Walker (£5.9m), having started each of the last three Gameweeks.

The summer signing has recorded back-to-back clean sheets against Crystal Palace and Aston Villa in the last two matches, totalling 15 FPL points.

Attacking threat

The underlying statistics also highlight Cancelo's attacking potential.

His five shots were joint-top among defenders over Gameweeks 8 to 10.

And his total of two big chances created is the third highest among defenders in that period.

Struggling Saints

Southampton travel north on the back of a record 9-0 home defeat by Leicester City.

Saints have mustered a single point in their last five matches.

Combined with his potential for another clean sheet, Cancelo’s raids forward can reward investors with a big points haul on Saturday afternoon.
