The Scout says Man City midfielder could be a cut-price gem in reduced Gameweek 18

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 18 in Fantasy Premier League.

Ilkay Gundogan (MCI) £5.4m

The Manchester City midfielder is owned by just 1.3 per cent of managers for his home meeting with Brighton & Hove Albion.

Gundogan appears to have secured his role as a regular for Pep Guardiola's side.

He has started their last four Premier League matches, scoring against West Bromwich Albion, Newcastle United and Chelsea

Indeed, 33 of his 45 points this season have come during that period.

Gundogan's GW17 goal

The underlying numbers show Gundogan has become a key figure in Man City's attack.

His seven shots in the box and four big chances in their last four matches are more than any team-mate.

And his five shots on target are joint-top with Kevin De Bruyne (£11.7m).

In a Gameweek where only six fixtures are scheduled to take place, Gundogan can provide huge value at a cost of just £5.4m.
