The Scout on why Aston Villa forward can appeal to managers using Free Hit or Bench Boost chip for Double Gameweek

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

Mbwana Samatta (AVL) £5.8m

The forward can be found in just 0.7 per cent of squads for Aston Villa’s Double Gameweek 30+.

Dean Smith’s side play at home on both occasions, first against Sheffield United and then Chelsea.

Villa are among only four teams with two matches in this round of fixtures.

This suggests their key attackers could appeal to managers looking to profit from the schedule.

Samatta scores on his PL debut

From the off

Samatta’s security of starts can be a major factor in his favour.

He was named in Villa’s starting XI in each of their last four Premier League matches and scored on his debut against AFC Bournemouth.

The Tanzanian now looks set to continue leading the line, with strike rival Wesley (£5.4m) still sidelined through injury.

The underlying numbers over those recent fixtures highlight Samatta’s attacking threat.

His eight shots inside the penalty area was a team-leading total, two more than Jack Grealish (£6.4m).

At a cost of just £5.8m, Samatta offers a cut-price solution for managers looking play their Bench Boost or Free Hit chip for the Double Gameweek.
