GW6 Ones to watch: Nelson Semedo

The Scout says back-to-back home matches hand Wolves wing-back the chance to profit in defence and attack

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 6 of Fantasy Premier League.

Nelson Semedo (WOL) £5.5m

A pair of home matches against Newcastle United and Crystal Palace over the next two Gameweeks look promising for the wing-back’s FPL prospects.

Semedo has started the last three Gameweeks for Wolverhampton Wanderers since signing from Barcelona. 

He has helped his team claim clean sheets against Fulham and Leeds United in their last two matches.

Semedo's impact v Fulham

The Portuguese now looks well-placed to bring in more defensive points.

Newcastle and Palace rank among the bottom six sides for shots taken in 2020/21.

Furthermore, their respective totals of 12 and 10 shots on target are the lowest in the opening five Gameweeks.

The popularity of budget option Max Kilman (£4.1m) has kept Semedo largely overlooked ahead of Friday’s 18:30 BST deadline.

More than 169,000 managers have bought Kilman for Gameweek 6, taking his ownership up to 5.9 per cent.

By contrast, Semedo can be found in only 1.9 per cent of squads.

Attacking influence

The underlying numbers highlight Semedo’s growing influence on the Wolves attack.

In the final third of the pitch, his 41 touches and 15 successful passes have both ranked second for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side in the last two Gameweeks.

He also produced two shots, more than any fellow Wolves defender.

Semedo could prove a smart move for managers willing to spend big on Wolves' backline.
