GW35 Differentials: Bertrand Traore

The Scout on why Aston Villa winger looks a strong all-round prospect for DGW35 and beyond

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

Bertrand Traore (AVL) £5.8m

The winger can be found in just 0.7 per cent of squads for Aston Villa’s home matches against Manchester United and Everton.

Traore has already enjoyed success in his previous meetings with both of those opponents. 

He scored and earned seven points at Old Trafford in Gameweek 17, while he supplied an assist to earn five points away against the Toffees last weekend.

The underlying numbers show Traore’s all-round potential for Double Gameweek 35.

His eight chances created in the last four Gameweeks are more than any other Villa player.

Meanwhile, his eight shots and seven shots in the box both rank second only to Ollie Watkins (£6.5m), who has recorded nine apiece.

Traore's 2020/21 goals

Crucially, Villa are among only four Double Gameweek 35 sides who also have a fixture in Gameweek 36, when they travel to Crystal Palace.

Traore also performed well in the reverse fixture against Palace, scoring and earning seven points in Gameweek 15.

That underlines the Villa winger’s potential for goals and assists over the upcoming period. 

Also in this series

Part 1: Gylfi Sigurdsson (EVE)
Part 2: Vicente Guaita (CRY)
Part 4: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (ARS)

Remember, the Gameweek 35 deadline is at 18:30 BST on Friday 7 May.
