FPL Gameweek 9 Ones to watch

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 9 in Fantasy Premier League.

Trezeguet (AVL) £5.3m

The winger is owned by 0.9 per cent of managers ahead of Aston Villa’s home match against Brighton & Hove Albion.

While Trezeguet has managed just a single FPL assist in his side’s seven matches, he has stepped up his goal threat considerably in recent appearances.

The Egyptian has had eight shots inside the penalty box in the last four Gameweeks, more than double his total of three in the previous Gameweeks.

That matches the total of Villa striker Ollie Watkins (£6.1m), who has been bought by more than 195,00 managers ahead of Saturday’s 11:00 GMT deadline.

Elite group

Trezeguet also fares well when assessed against other FPL midfielders from Gameweek 5 onwards.

He ranks joint-third for shots in the box, with his tally being bettered only by the 11 of his team-mate Jack Grealish (£7.5m) and Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) of Liverpool.

Trezeguet’s schedule suggests he could appeal to those managers considering a double-up on Villa’s attack.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), four of their next six matches score only two.

At a cost of just £5.3m, Trezeguet could prove a very handy budget pick over that kind run.
