Scout Selection: Digne part of Everton double-up

A favourable pair of Double Gameweek 26 fixtures lifts the potential of Lucas Digne (£6.1m) in Fantasy Premier League.

Everton's Frenchman faces Southampton and West Bromwich Albion, both of whom are short of form.

Southampton have lost seven of their last eight Premier League matches, while West Brom have won only one of their 12 outings since Sam Allardyce was appointed head coach.

Digne helped Everton to a clean sheet in their 2-0 victory over rivals Liverpool last weekend.

Meanwhile, his total of eight assists ranks second only to the nine of West Ham United's Aaron Cresswell (£5.8m) among defenders in Fantasy this season. 

Digne, along with his team-mate Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m), is included in a Selection that lines up in a 3-5-2 formation, with Bruno Fernandes (£11.6m) handed the armband and Harry Kane (£11.1m) named vice-captain.

Emiliano Martinez (AVL) £5.3m

Aston Villa's goalkeeper has claimed 37 points in his last five matches ahead of a Double Gameweek 26 against Leeds United and Sheffield United. Martinez produced a combined 16 points against those sides earlier this season.

Joao Cancelo (MCI) £6.1m

The full-back offers the most attacking route into a Manchester City side who boast 15 clean sheets.

Cancelo's 25 shots and 34 key passes both rank among the top five defenders in Fantasy ahead of home matches with West Ham and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Lucas Digne (EVE) £6.1m

A new role as a left winger in Everton's win at Liverpool last weekend further raises his potential for attacking returns. 

Luke Shaw (MUN) £5.1m

Manchester United's left-back offers strong all-round potential for his trips to Chelsea and Crystal Palace.

Shaw has delivered attacking or defensive points in six of his last eight starts.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £12.6m

Liverpool's Egyptian faces Sheff Utd and Chelsea on the back of four goals in his last five outings.

Salah's totals of 57 shots in the box and 35 shots on target both rank among the top three players in Fantasy this season.

Bruno Fernandes (MUN) £11.6m

The Man Utd playmaker has scored in four successive matches for the first time this season. 

Fernandes has returned 10 double-figure hauls on his way to the top of the overall player standings in Fantasy.

Harvey Barnes (LEI) £6.9m

Back-to-back double-figure hauls have made the Leicester City winger the top target for managers in Gameweek 26. Barnes has earned a massive 535,000 transfers in for his matches against Arsenal and Burnley.

Ilkay Gundogan (MCI) £6.1m

Man City's German midfielder has averaged a team-leading 6.6 points per match (ppm) this season.

Gundogan has delivered six double-figure hauls, at least two more than any other player for the league leaders.

Ademola Lookman (FUL) £5.0m

The Fulham winger faces Palace and Tottenham Hotspur on the back of his season-high haul of 11 points last weekend.

Lookman's 13 shots and 12 chances created both rank among the top five players in FPL in the last four Gameweeks.

Harry Kane (TOT) £11.1m

The Spurs striker has averaged 7.0 ppm ahead of his Double Gameweek 26 against Burnley and Fulham.

When selected, Kane has been involved in a team-leading 67 per cent of his side's goals this term.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (EVE) £7.7m

Everton's frontman has two goals, two assists and 25 points in his last three appearances. 

Calvert-Lewin has been a huge target for managers since returning from injury last weekend, with 381,000 bringing him in for his Double.
