GW26 Ones to watch: Lucas Digne

Everton left-back has thrived in home matches this season, says The Scout

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 26 of Fantasy Premier League.

Lucas Digne (EVE) £5.8m

A visit from Crystal Palace hands the Everton defender a chance to continue his excellent home form.

Digne has been a big success at Goodison Park this season, averaging 5.4 points per match.

Of his 81 FPL points in 2019/20, 65 have come in home fixtures.

Digne’s potential in Fantasy has been lifted further by the recent appointment of Carlo Ancelotti as Toffees manager.

The left-back has produced two assists, two clean sheets and 24 points in his three home matches under the Italian's management.

The underlying statistics show Digne’s creativity has been a major weapon for Ancelotti's side.

He has recorded 12 key passes and 13 successful crosses since his new manager took charge in Gameweek 19.

Both those totals are joint-top with Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.3m) for the Toffees.

Digne's figures also fare well when compared with those of other FPL defenders during that period.

Only Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.6m), the top-scoring defender in FPL, has surpassed either of those totals.

He has recorded 20 successful crosses and 13 chances created.

Eagles lacking menace

Crystal Palace visit Goodison Park having struggled in attack recently.

The Eagles have failed to score in their last two matches. They have managed only three shots on target during those Gameweeks, fewer than any other side.

When his clean-sheet potential is combined with his creativity, Digne could be set for a bumper haul on Saturday afternoon.
