GW27 Differentials: Jesus can build on midweek brace

The Scout 5 Mar 2021

Forward is tipped among four low-owned gems for Man City's Double Gameweek

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 27 in Fantasy Premier League.

 Gabriel Jesus (MCI) £9.2m, 3.7% owned

A Double Gameweek 27 for Manchester City boosts the prospects of Jesus.

He scored twice at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers in midweek to claim 13 points, his first double-figure haul of the season.

The Brazilian has produced four goals and two assists in Man City’s last eight matches.

Owned by only 3.7 per cent of managers, he has another two home matches, against Manchester United and Southampton, to extend his run of returns.

Jannik Vestergaard (SOU) £4.7m, 3.2% owned

The Southampton centre-back has boasted a major goal threat ahead of Double Gameweek 27 matches against Sheffield United and Man City.

Vestergaard’s seven shots in the box in the last four Gameweeks are joint-top among defenders in Fantasy.

That total is also the joint-most for Southampton, level with top scorer Danny Ings (£8.4m).

The Sheff Utd match, in particular, looks promising for Vestergaard.

The Blades have conceded 104 shots from set-pieces and 71 headed shots. Both of those totals are among the worst three records in the Premier League.  

Nicolas Pepe (ARS) £7.6m, 1.0% owned

A visit to Burnley gives the Arsenal winger the chance to extend his improving form in Fantasy.

Pepe has started six of his side's last seven matches, producing three goals, an assist and 32 points over that period.

That includes his season-high haul of 12 points at Leicester City in Gameweek 26.

He faces a Burnley defence who have struggled at Turf Moor recently, managing a single clean sheet in their last seven home matches. 

Anwar El Ghazi (AVL) £5.3m, 1.0% owned

The winger was Aston Villa’s top performer over their Double Gameweek 26.

Ell Ghazi claimed 13 points, scoring his sixth goal of the season in a 1-0 win at Leeds United.

The Dutchman has averaged a goal every 135 minutes this season, quicker than any team-mate ahead of a home encounter with Wolves.

He scored the winner in a 1-0 victory in Gameweek 12 in this season's reverse fixture.
