FPL breakthroughs: Aarons a creative force for Norwich

The Scout reckons Canaries right-back has big assist potential in Fantasy this season

The Scout pinpoints players who can build on their performances last season and enjoy big success in 2021/22 Fantasy Premier League.

Max Aarons (NOR) £4.5m

The Norwich City defender produced two goals and two assists in their Championship-winning 2020/21 campaign. 

Raiding forward from right-back, Aarons’ creativity was a standout feature for Norwich.

His total of 61 key passes was second only to playmaker Emiliano Buendia (£6.5m) among team-mates last term.

That highlights his growing importance to Norwich in light of the latter’s departure to Aston Villa.

Crucially, Aarons’ attacking numbers also fare well compared with other defenders in Fantasy last season.

Only three created more chances in 2020/21. And his 28 shots were bettered by just six players in that position.

Clean-sheet potential

Norwich’s defensive record last season suggests they have improved since their previous Premier League campaign in 2019/20.

They conceded just 36 goals last term, second only to the 30 of Watford.

By comparison, Norwich let in 56 goals during their Championship-winning 2018/19 season.

When that clean-sheet potential is combined with his attacking influence, Aarons is worth considering from Gameweek 5 when Norwich’s schedule improves significantly.
