GW23 Differentials: Benjamin Mendy

The Scout says Man City left-back has been standout creator among FPL defenders in recent weeks

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 23 in Fantasy Premier League.

Benjamin Mendy (MCI) £5.5m

The Manchester City defender is owned by only 1.0 per cent of managers for the home meeting with Crystal Palace.

Mendy has provided a rich source of creativity for Pep Guardiola’s side in recent matches.

Assist potential

His 11 key passes over the last six Gameweeks were more than any other defender in FPL.

Indeed, the Frenchman's total was level with Riyad Mahrez (£8.5m) and second only to the 16 of Kevin De Bruyne (£10.7m) for Man City.

This suggests Mendy was unfortunate to earn just one assist during that period.

Goal-shy Eagles

Palace visit the Etihad Stadium having struggled in attack away from home this season.

Roy Hodgson's men have scored just four goals in their previous six road trips.

Combined with his potential for assists, Mendy could be set for a bumper haul in Gameweek 23.
