The Scout reckons Frenchman’s aerial threat will pose big problems for Everton

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 29 in Fantasy Premier League.

Olivier Giroud (CHE) £6.5m

The Chelsea striker is owned by just 1.5 per cent of managers for his home match against Everton.

Giroud has started the last two Gameweeks following an injury to Tammy Abraham (£7.5m).

The Frenchman has seized his opportunity, scoring against Tottenham Hotspur and providing an assist at AFC Bournemouth.

Giroud's goal against Spurs

The underlying numbers over that pair of matches highlight Giroud’s impact on the Blues’ attack.

He has had six shots in the box and won 13 headed duels, both team-leading totals.

The 33-year-old’s aerial ability could prove a major weapon against the Toffees on Sunday afternoon.

Since Carlo Ancelotti was appointed manager in Gameweek 19, Everton have conceded 26 headed attempts. Only five sides have a worse record.

The Merseysiders have also been poor defensively away from home, conceding five goals across their last two road trips. 

Giroud has the form to exploit those frailties and deliver more returns in Gameweek 29.
