GW15 Differentials: Anwar El Ghazi

The Scout says penalty duties have lifted Aston Villa midfielder’s potential

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 15 in Fantasy Premier League

Anwar El Ghazi (AVL) £5.7m

The in-form midfielder is owned by only 0.5 per cent of managers ahead of Aston Villa’s home match against Crystal Palace.

El Ghazi has started the last two Gameweeks due to an injury to fellow winger Trezeguet (£5.2m).

He has taken his opportunity, scoring all three of his goals for the season from Gameweek 12 onwards. 

Crucially, El Ghazi now appears to be Villa’s first-choice penalty-taker after he converted from the spot against Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Bromwich Albion.

El Ghazi goals v West Brom

The underlying numbers further highlight the Dutchman's major goal threat.

His 17 shots over the last four Gameweeks are more than any other player in FPL. Ten of those have been on target, joint-top with Mohamed Salah (£12.5m).

By comparison, Villa’s most popular player Jack Grealish (£7.8m) has managed only one shot on target during the same period.

Palace's shutout struggles

Palace’s record on the road offers further encouragement for El Ghazi.

The Eagles are one of five sides yet to keep a clean sheet away from home this term.

El Ghazi can exploit those weaknesses, offering managers a cut-price source of goals for Gameweek 15.

Remember the Gameweek 15 deadline is at 11:00 GMT on Saturday 26 December.
