The Scout’s panel of experts reveal the overlooked players they are tipping for success in 2020/21 Fantasy Premier League.

What the experts say

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.0m) is the man for me. People are paying too much attention to Everton's poor end to last season.

If reported moves for Allan, James Rodriguez and Abdoulaye Doucoure are realised, Everton, who are playing under one of the best managers in world football in Carlo Ancelotti, will create a lot of chances for a forward who showcased his immense potential in the last campaign.

Raheem Sterling (£11.5m) looks like a great differential for the season. His ownership is under five per cent right now, not helped by a blank Gameweek 1.

If Manchester City hit the ground running, a double-up on Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne (£11.5m) in midfield will be powerful.

I really fancy this to be the season that Che Adams (£6.0m) does well. Following last season's resumption he found his feet in a two-man Southampton frontline and has continued that form in pre-season, with goals and assists. I expect that to continue into Gameweek 1.

No-one is talking about Dele Alli (£8.0m) right now, but with Tottenham Hotspur’s opening fixtures and his ownership well under five per cent, he could be a great differential.

The arrival of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (£5.0m) frees up those in front of him to express themselves and not have to drop deep. That could prompt a revival of the Alli of old.

Harvey Barnes (£7.0m) is someone who posted good numbers pre-lockdown but did not build on them after the resumption. I think this has led to his low ownership but I back him to improve on last season as a provider of goals and assists.

Chuck Booth (@ChuckBoothSport)

It feels weird talking about Harry Kane (£10.5m) as a differential. He supposedly doesn't score in August but that's okay because the season starts in September this year!

The joint-most expensive forward in the game has a kind opening schedule and if Kane can rediscover the form that he's capable of, more will jump on board.

Neal Thurman (@nealjthurman)

Jay Rodriguez (£6.0m). After netting eight goals and adding two assists in only 2002 minutes last season, I like Burnley's Rodriguez to come closer to replicating his 2013/14 form that helped him score 15 times.

Nick (@WGTA_FPL)

Bukayo Saka (£5.5m) is still breaking into the Arsenal team and there remain question marks over whether he is a sure starter. But with 10 assists in all competitions last term, he could represent excellent value this campaign.

Geoff Dance (@GeoffreyDance)

They are far from unknown players but Man City's Sergio Aguero (£10.5m) and Gabriel Jesus (£9.5m) have ownerships of 4.5 and 2.3 per cent respectively. 

Certainly their blank Gameweek 1 influences this, but they should be great value come Gameweek 2. As always it will be difficult to predict who starts, but a fit and firing Aguero looks a bargain to me.
