GW1 Differentials: Dele Alli

The Scout 9 Sep 2020
Dele Alli, Spurs

The Scout says the Spurs midfielder's promising pre-season displays suggest he can profit from Everton's poor away record

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 1 in Fantasy Premier League.

Dele Alli (TOT) £8.0m

The Tottenham Hotspur midfielder sits in only 2.6 per cent of squads for the home match with Everton.

Alli has quickly found his form during Spurs' recent summer friendlies.

He supplied two assists in a 3-0 home win over Ipswich Town before scoring in a 4-1 victory over Reading.

That mirrors his all-round impact under Jose Mourinho last season.

Alli scored six goals and also supplied six assists after the Portuguese was appointed head coach in Gameweek 13.

His impact is further highlighted by the underlying numbers.

When selected by Mourinho, Alli was involved in 43 per cent of Spurs' goals, bettered only by the 46 per cent of Son Heung-min (£9.0m).

And his 13 big chances also placed second, just behind the 14 of Harry Kane (£10.5m).

Promising match-up

Everton's poor away record last season looks promising for Mourinho's attackers.

The Toffees managed only three clean sheets on their travels, conceding at least twice in five of their 10 road trips under Carlo Ancelotti.

That hands Alli the chance to make an instant impression in Gameweek 1.
