The Scout says Spurs star has the home fixtures to be an explosive differential captain

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

Gareth Bale (TOT) £9.1m

The Tottenham Hotspur star is owned by just 3.0 per cent of managers ahead of a home match against Sheffield United.

Bale returned to Spurs' starting XI against Southampton in Gameweek 32, their first match under interim head coach Ryan Mason.

He immediately made his mark, scoring and earning nine points in the 2-1 home win.

Although he was then benched for the EFL Cup final loss to Manchester City, Bale looks likely to reclaim his starting spot for a very favourable run of matches.

In addition to Sheff Utd, Spurs entertain Wolverhampton Wanderers and Aston Villa in the final five Gameweeks.

Bale’s previous home performances suggest he could thrive in those matches.

He produced 19 and 14-point hauls against Burnley and Crystal Palace respectively in his two home appearances prior to the Saints encounter.

The popularity of Harry Kane (£11.8m) and Son Heung-min (£9.5m) means they are likely to be heavily backed with the armband in Fantasy over the run-in.

However, Bale’s potential for huge hauls makes him a major option for managers looking to chase down mini-league rivals.
