GW8 Differentials: Bukayo Saka

The Scout 3 Nov 2020

The Scout says the teenager has been Arsenal’s main goal threat and can punish a leaky Aston Villa

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

Bukayo Saka (ARS) £5.3m

The Arsenal youngster can be found in only 2.9 per cent of squads ahead of a home encounter with Aston Villa.

Saka appears to have recently secured a role as a regular for the Gunners.

After starting just one of their opening three matches, he has been named in the first XI in each of the last four Gameweeks.

The 19-year-old has scored one goal in that period, earning eight points against Sheffield United last month.

The underlying numbers show Saka has had a major influence on Arsenal's attack.

His totals of 10 shots, eight shots in the box and five shots on target are all more than any team-mate over the last four Gameweeks.

Villa, meanwhile, visit north London having conceded seven goals in their last two matches.

They have also allowed league-leading totals of 24 shots in the box and 36 shots during that period.

Saka has the eye for goal to profit from those weaknesses, offering managers a standout budget midfield pick for Gameweek 8.
