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

Mohamed Elyounoussi (SOU) £5.5m

The winger is found in a mere 0.1 per cent of squads ahead of Southampton’s home match with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

After failing to feature in Saints’ opening two matches, Elyounoussi appears to have secured a regular role.

He has started and played 90 minutes in each of their last three outings, against Newcastle United, West Ham United and Manchester City.

The Norway international seized his opportunity on his first start in Gameweek 3, scoring and earning eight points against Newcastle.

The underlying numbers highlight his growing influence on the Southampton attack since his first appearance of the campaign.

Elyounoussi’s seven shots in the box over the last three Gameweeks were joint-top with forward Adam Armstrong (£6.0m).

And his four key passes were second only to the five of James Ward-Prowse (£6.4m) among all Southampton players.

Rivalling Salah, Sarr and Ronaldo

Elyounoussi also fares well when assessed against other players in Fantasy over the last three Gameweeks.

Indeed, his five shots on target place fourth overall.

Only Mohamed Salah (£12.6m), with eight, and Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.7m) and Ismaila Sarr (£6.1m), with seven each, produced more.

At home to a Wolves side who have a single clean sheet this season, Elyounoussi can star in FPL again this weekend.
