GW35 Kings to watch: Timothy Castagne

The Scout 5 May 2021

The Scout says position change boosts wing-back’s attacking potential for Leicester’s Double Gameweek

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 35 of Fantasy Premier League.

Timothy Castagne (LEI) £5.8m

The in-form Leicester City wing-back boasts strong attacking form ahead of encounters with Newcastle United and Manchester United.

He has 22 points in the Foxes’ last three matches, producing a goal, an assist, a clean sheet and three bonus points.

A change of role in Gameweek 31 has helped lift Castagne’s output. 

Moving from the left flank to the right, he recorded 10 touches in the penalty area in the last four Gameweeks, placing him second among defenders in Fantasy.

His seven key passes in that period were bettered by only two other players in his position.

That total ranked joint-second for Leicester, level with Kelechi Iheanacho (£6.3m) and James Maddison (£7.3m).

Increasing attacking threat

Castagne’s numbers compare favourably when assessed against his previous displays.

His average of minutes per chance created has more than halved, from 108 to 51 in the last four matches.

The Belgian's goal threat has also improved markedly.

Castagne had four shots in the last four Gameweeks, matching his total from Leicester’s opening 30 fixtures.

Points potential

And three of his seven shots in the box this season have come from Gameweek 31 onwards.

Encouragingly for Leicester, both their Gameweek 35 opponents have struggled in defence recently.
Newcastle have one clean sheet in 13 attempts, while Man Utd have a single shutout in their last five Premier League outings at Old Trafford.

Castagne can take advantage of those frailties and deliver more points in Double Gameweek 35.
