The Scout says Norwich playmaker can unlock Wolves defence with his creativity

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 18 in Fantasy Premier League.

Emiliano Buendia (NOR) £6.0m

The Norwich City midfielder is owned by only 0.8 per cent of FPL managers for his home match against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Buendia has impressed since returning to the Canaries' starting XI in the last two Gameweeks.

His 10 chances created in that period have been bettered only by the 11 of James Maddison (£7.8m) among all players in FPL.

And last weekend the Argentinian picked up his first attacking returns since Gameweek 5, supplying the assist as Teemu Pukki (£6.6m) scored in a 1-1 draw at Leicester City.

Eye for a pass

The underlying numbers show Buendia’s creativity is vital for Norwich's attack.

His 41 key passes are almost double the 21 of his nearest team-mate, Todd Cantwell (£4.7m).

Indeed, only four players in FPL have created more chances this season than Buendia.

Wolves visit Carrow Road having struggled defensively on their travels recently.

The Midlands side are without a clean sheet in their last seven away matches in all competitions.

Buendia’s influence will be crucial as Norwich look to take advantage of that lack of resilience on Saturday.
