The Scout says Arsenal midfielder can take advantage of Crystal Palace’s poor away form

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

Emile Smith Rowe (ARS) £4.4m 

The Arsenal midfielder is owned by just 1.6 per cent of managers for his home encounter with Crystal Palace.

Smith Rowe's inclusion in Arsenal's first XI has helped revive their Premier League form.

All three of his starts this season have come in the last three Gameweeks.

Arsenal have beaten Chelsea, Brighton & Hove Albion and West Bromwich Albion during that run.

Smith Rowe has proved a major influence, supplying a total of three assists and earning 18 points.

The underlying numbers highlight his immediate impact.

He created six chances from Gameweek 15 onwards, second only to the seven of left-back Kieran Tierney (£5.4m) for Arsenal.

Crystal Palace, meanwhile, have struggled on their travels this season.

Roy Hodgson's side have failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their eight away matches.

Furthermore, their total of 15 big chances conceded in the last four Gameweeks is more than any other side.

Smith Rowe can profit from those weaknesses and provide major value for managers next Thursday.
