Aston Villa winger has five goals and two assists in his last 12 matches ahead of DGW26

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Double Gameweek 26 in Fantasy Premier League.

Bertrand Traore (£5.9m) 0.7% owned

The Aston Villa winger's goal against Leicester City last weekend highlighted his cut-price potential in Fantasy Premier League.

He has scored all five of his goals this season, and supplied two of his three assists, in their last 12 matches.

Indeed, when selected, he has been involved in 50 per cent of Villa's goals in that period, more than any team-mate.

Traore's MW19 goal

Traore now has a Double Gameweek 26 against Leeds United and Sheffield United sides who have struggled defensively this season.

They are both among the bottom six sides for goals conceded, with 43 and 41 respectively.

Traore is among four Differentials picked by The Scout ahead of Saturday's 11:00 GMT deadline.

Gareth Bale (TOT) £9.3m, 0.3% owned

The Tottenham Hotspur star is finally hinting at a return to his best form ahead of their Double Gameweek 26.

Bale produced a goal and an assist in Spurs’ UEFA Europa League win over Wolfsberger AC last week.

He then emerged from the bench to provide the assist when Lucas Moura (£6.6m) scored against West Ham United on Sunday.

A pair of matches against Burnley and Fulham give Bale the chance to maintain that momentum as an overlooked route into the Spurs attack.

Ademola Lookman (FUL) £5.0m, 1.5% owned

The Fulham winger prepares to face Crystal Palace and Spurs off the back of his season-high haul of 11 points against Sheff Utd last weekend.

At a cost of only £5.0m, Lookman's underlying numbers highlight his all-round potential to provide huge value in Double Gameweek 26.

Over the last four Gameweeks, his 13 shots and 12 chances created both rank among the top five players in Fantasy.

Ricardo Pereira (LEI) £5.9m, 0.8% owned

A recent return from long-term injury lifts the appeal of Leicester City's versatile defender.

Pereira has made all four of his starts this season in the last four Gameweeks, helping them to clean sheets against Fulham and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Furthermore, he was handed an advanced position for their win over Aston Villa last weekend, playing as a right winger in the 2-1 victory.

That suggests he can reward owners at both ends of the pitch in his pair of Gameweek 26 matches against Arsenal and Burnley.
