GW16 Differentials: Martinelli boasts big goal threat

The Scout 28 Dec 2020

Fit-again Arsenal midfielder is one of four low-owned Fantasy picks backed to score big points

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 16 in Fantasy Premier League.

Gabriel Martinelli (ARS) £4.9m

The Brazilian made a first start of the season last time out and helped Arsenal end their seven-match winless run.

The FPL midfielder was Arsenal's main goal threat in their 3-1 victory over Chelsea. His four shots in the box were twice as many as any team-mate. 

He is owned by only 0.4 per cent of managers ahead of a trip to Brighton & Hove Albion on Tuesday.

Chris Wood (BUR) £6.2m

Wood is found in 1.4 per cent of squads ahead a home match against bottom-club Sheffield United.

The forward has scored in two of Burnley's last three matches at Turf Moor, netting against Crystal Palace and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

He has recorded five big chances in the last four Gameweeks, more than any other forward in FPL.

That suggests he can take advantage of a Sheff Utd team who are the only side yet to keep a clean sheet this season.

Jack Stephens (SOU) £4.6m

An injury to fellow centre-back Jannik Vestergaard (£4.9m) has allowed Stephens a return to the Southampton starting XI.

Stephens helped Saints claim a clean sheet at Fulham in Gameweek 15 and is owned by only 0.2 per cent of managers.

His prospects of another shutout look promising at home to West Ham United

Southampton have been in strong defensive form at St Mary’s Stadium, keeping four clean sheets in their last six home matches.

Sergio Aguero (MCI) £10.3m

The Manchester City striker has stepped up his recovery from injury with two substitute appearances in the last three Gameweeks.

He looks set for more minutes at Everton because fellow forward Gabriel Jesus (£9.1m) is sidelined through illness.

Aguero has an ownership of 1.5 per cent and can exploit an Everton team who have struggled to keep out opponents at Goodison Park.

The Toffees have a single clean sheet at home this season.
