The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 19 in Fantasy Premier League.

Hakim Ziyech (CHE) £8.1m, 2.6 per cent ownership

The Chelsea playmaker has been limited to just six starts in the opening 18 Gameweeks due to injury.

Nonetheless, he has shown his potential in those appearances, producing double-figure returns against both Burnley and Sheffield United.

Ziyech’s average of 4.4 ppm is more than any other midfielder or forward for Chelsea ahead of their trips to Fulham and Leicester.

Vladimir Coufal (WHU) £4.7m, 5.8%

Home encounters with Burnley and West Bromwich Albion lift the appeal of Coufal in Gameweek 19 of Fantasy Premier League.

The West Ham United right-back has been mainly overlooked by managers in Fantasy, sitting in just 5.8 per cent of squads.

Yet he has been a big success at both ends of the pitch since arriving last summer.

He has combined three assists with four clean sheets and eight bonus points over his 13 Gameweek appearances.

The underlying numbers further highlight Coufal’s creative potential.

Since making his debut in Gameweek 4, his 19 key passes rank joint-top for West Ham, along with Aaron Cresswell (£5.4m).

Timothy Castagne (LEI) £5.7m, 4.8%

The Leicester City full-back enjoyed an excellent start to his debut FPL campaign.

Castagne produced one goal, three assists and two clean sheets in his first six appearances before being sidelined through injury.

And he has recently returned to action ahead of Leicester's home fixtures against Southampton and Chelsea.

The Belgian has averaged 4.3 points per match (ppm) this term, second only to the 7.0 ppm of Jamie Vardy (£10.1m) for Leicester.

Robert Snodgrass (WBA) £5.7m, 0.1%

West Brom’s new signing has a Double Gameweek 19 in which to make an immediate impact.

Snodgrass has trips to Wolverhampton Wanderers and his former club West Ham in the next round of fixtures.

Historically, sides managed by Sam Allardyce have been heavily reliant on set-pieces for goal threat. 

And Snodgrass’s delivery from such situations can now prove a major weapon for West Brom's new head coach.

In his last season as a regular for West Ham in 2018/19, the Scot’s total of 37 chances created from set-pieces ranked third among all players in FPL.
