Leicester defender tipped for defensive and attacking points as The Scout backs four low-owned gems

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 28 in Fantasy Premier League.

Timothy Castagne (LEI) £5.7m, 4.1% owned

A home encounter with Sheffield United raises the potential of the Leicester City full-back in defence and attack.

Castagne has combined one goal and three FPL assists with four clean sheets in his 17 starts this season.

Sheff Utd's problems at both ends of the pitch look hugely encouraging for Castagne.

Away from home, they have scored only six goals and are yet to keep a clean sheet. Both of those records are the worst in the Premier League this term.

Ahmed El Mohamady (AVL) £4.3m, 0.4% owned
NEW 1-1 AVL

The right-back has benefited from a recent injury to team-mate Matty Cash (£5.0m), starting each of Aston Villa’s last four matches.

El Mohamady has helped his side keep clean sheets against Leeds United and Wolverhampton Wanderers in that period, totalling 15 FPL points across the last two Gameweeks.

At a cost of only £4.3m, he offers a cut-price route into Villa's defence for a trip to Newcastle United.

Villa have recorded eight clean sheets on their travels this season, more than any other side.

Gylfi Sigurdsson (EVE) £6.8m, 1.8% owned
EVE 1-2 BUR

The Everton midfielder has been a consistent source of points ahead of a home match with Burnley.

Sigurdsson has blanked in only one of his last four outings, scoring against Liverpool and producing assists against Southampton and West Bromwich Albion.

The underlying numbers in that period further highlight his influence on the Everton attack.

Indeed, Sigurdsson’s six chances created and four shots on target were both team-leading totals.

Joel Veltman (BHA) £4.3m, 1.1% owned
SOU 1-2 BHA

The Brighton & Hove Albion right-back offers multiple routes to returns at Southampton.

Veltman has combined one goal and four clean sheets with six bonus points across his last eight outings.

The underlying numbers highlight his major goal threat. Veltman’s nine shots and seven shots in the box in the last four Gameweeks both rank top among defenders.
