The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 28 in Fantasy Premier League.
Long has stepped up his output in recent matches for Saints.
During that period his total of 22 points is more than the 14 of team-mate Danny Ings (£7.1m), who is owned by 33.5 per cent of managers.
The underlying statistics further show Long’s growing influence on the Southampton attack.
His eight shots inside the penalty area and eight chances created over the last four Gameweeks are more than any team-mate.
Long will look to continue his good form against a West Ham defence who have struggled in recent weeks.
The Hammers have conceded 14 goals and 63 shots inside the penalty area in the last four Gameweeks. Both those totals are more than any other side.
Long’s all-round potential marks him out as a big value option for Gameweek 28 and may give him the edge over Ings once again.
