GW20 Differentials: Shaw an all-round prospect

The Scout 24 Jan 2021

The Scout picks out four players and says creative Man Utd left-back can deliver against Sheff Utd

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 20 in Fantasy Premier League.

Luke Shaw (MUN) £4.8m, 2.1% ownership

A home encounter with Sheffield United lifts the prospects of the Manchester United left-back.

The defender has helped Man Utd record clean sheets against Burnley and Liverpool in their last three matches.

Shaw also earned two bonus points on each of those occasions, taking his total to 11 bonus for the season, joint-top among defenders in FPL.

The underlying numbers also highlight his attacking potential against Sheff Utd.

Shaw has created 12 chances over the last four Gameweeks, more than any other defender.

Jarrod Bowen (WHU) £6.3m, 3.2%

The return to fitness of Michail Antonio (£6.3m) in Double Gameweek 19 appears to have improved Bowen’s Fantasy prospects.

West Ham United’s wide man scored his first goal since Gameweek 10 in their win over West Bromwich Albion.

The space created by the mobile Antonio up front allows Bowen to get into more advanced positions.

Indeed, all five of Bowen’s goals this season have come in the nine matches Antonio has started.

At a cost of just £6.3m, he offers excellent value for West Ham’s trip to Crystal Palace.

Bernardo Silva (MCI) £7.4m, 0.8%

A goal against Aston Villa in the second match of Manchester City’s Double Gameweek 19 continued the midfielder’s improving form.

Silva has scored three goals in his last four matches in all competitions, also netting twice in a recent FA Cup win over Birmingham City.

The midfielder was rested for his side’s cup triumph over Cheltenham Town at the weekend, boosting his chances of starting at West Brom on Tuesday.

West Brom, meanwhile, have been poor defensively since Sam Allardyce was appointed as head coach, conceding 19 goals in seven matches in all competitions.  

Fabio Silva (WOL) £5.2m, 1.7%

The Wolverhampton Wanderers forward has stepped up his output ahead of a visit to Chelsea

Silva has scored both of his goals for the season in the last six matches, including a strike against West Brom in Gameweek 19.

His improving threat is shown by the underlying statistics. 

Silva recorded 12 shots in the box from Gameweek 14 onwards, a total bettered by only five other forwards in FPL.

That suggests he can take advantage of a Chelsea side who have managed only two clean sheets in their last nine Premier League matches.
