The Scout believes a move up front could help Brighton attacker get the better of the Burnley defence

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 8 in Fantasy Premier League.

Leandro Trossard (BHA) £6.0m

The Brighton & Hove Albion attacker is owned by only 1.9 per cent of squads ahead of his home match against Burnley.

Trossard, who is listed as a midfielder in FPL, played up front for the Seagulls against Tottenham Hotspur in Gameweek 7.


Although he failed to find the net in the 2-1 defeat, the underlying statistics highlight his strong all-round potential.

Trossard's 11 chances created are a team-leading total while his 16 shots and six shots on target both place second.

The Belgian has already produced one goal and two assists, earning attacking points against Chelsea, Newcastle United and Everton.

Favourable match-up

And Burnley's defensive record suggests Trossard can enjoy a successful Gameweek 8.

TV Info

They have kept only one clean sheet this season, conceding at least three goals in three of their six matches.

If he continues as a striker against the Clarets, Trossard can provide tremendous value as a budget midfield pick in Fantasy.
