The Scout says Burnley winger’s delivery and Crystal Palace's defensive issues could bring further FPL returns

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 14 in Fantasy Premier League.

Dwight McNeil (BUR) £6.0m

The Burnley winger is owned by just 1.2 per cent of FPL managers for his home encounter with Crystal Palace.

McNeil has totalled 14 points over his last two appearances at Turf Moor.

He scored against Chelsea in Gameweek 10 and supplied an assist in the 3-0 win over West Ham United in Gameweek 12.

The underlying statistics further highlight his all-round influence on the Clarets' attack.

Attacking threat

McNeil’s 17 chances created sits second for Burnley, while his 15 shots rank third.

But it is the winger’s delivery from the flank that could prove decisive.

McNeil has supplied 23 successful crosses this term, more than any team-mate.

That has helped the Clarets record 33 headed attempts, the fourth-best total in the league.

Palace, meanwhile, have struggled to defend aerial situations. Their total of 38 headed shots conceded is better than just two other sides.

Vulnerable visitors

Roy Hodgson’s visitors also have a poor defensive record on the road, failing to keep a clean sheet in all six of their away matches.

McNeil’s delivery could extend that sequence and bring in more FPL points for the promising 20-year-old.
