The Scout says wing-back’s all-round potential and secure role boost his appeal for Sheffield United’s Double Gameweek 30+

The Scout highlights players for Fantasy Premier League managers to target with their unlimited transfers before the Gameweek 30+ deadline.

Enda Stevens (SHU) £5.2m

Interest in Sheffield United’s defence has been raised by their Double Gameweek 30+ fixtures.

The Blades are among the four teams to play twice in that round of matches, visiting Aston Villa and Newcastle United.

Both of those opponents rank in the bottom eight for goals scored this season, which gives Sheff Utd the chance to extend their fine defensive record.

Their total of 10 clean sheets has been bettered only by Liverpool and Burnley, with 12 and 11 respectively.

Stevens' skills, goals and nutmegs

Left wing-back Stevens has also impressed going forward, scoring twice and producing two assists.

The underlying numbers further highlight his attacking potential.

Among defenders, his 30 chances created rank fifth overall.

Secure starter

Stevens is owned by just 2.8 per cent of managers, compared with the 39.4 per cent of team-mate John Lundstram (£4.9m).

However, since January Lundstram has not always been a regular in the starting XI. He has started only one of the Blades’ last five matches.

Stevens, by comparison, has started every match this term.

Combined with his creativity and chances of further clean sheets, he looks the go-to option in defence for Sheff Utd's upcoming Double Gameweek+.
