GW4 Differentials: Ryan Bertrand

The Scout says Southampton left-back can take advantage of West Brom’s weakness down the right

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 4 in Fantasy Premier League.

Ryan Bertrand (SOU) £5.0m

The defender is owned by just 1.3 per cent of squads for Southampton’s home encounter with West Bromwich Albion.

Bertrand welcomes the Baggies after registering an eight-point haul away to Burnley. The left-back combined a clean sheet with two bonus points in the 1-0 win at Turf Moor.

He will look to take advantage of a West Brom side who have struggled defensively down their right flank.

In Gameweeks 1 and 3 respectively, James Justin (£4.7m) and Cesar Azpilicueta (£5.9m) earned assists while playing as left-sided defenders against Slaven Bilic’s men.

And in Gameweek 2, Everton’s left winger Richarlison (£8.0m) supplied three assists in a 5-2 victory at Goodison Park.

Bertrand’s underlying numbers offer further encouragement.

He has produced six crosses over the last two Gameweeks compared with the one of Saints’ right-back Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.5m).

That suggests Bertrand’s creative influence down the left can be a big factor against the Baggies and help bring in his first attacking returns of 2020/21.
