The Scout says Villa full-back can exploit Crystal Palace's weaker right flank this weekend

The Scout is tipping four low-owned players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek in Fantasy Premier League

The defender is owned by only 2.2 per cent of managers for Aston Villa’s trip to Crystal Palace.

Targett’s prospects in Fantasy have been boosted by the arrival of Steven Gerrard as head coach.

Villa claimed their first clean sheet since Gameweek 6 in Gerrard’s first match in charge, a 2-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion last weekend.

Targett produced his season-high haul of seven points against the Seagulls, also collecting his first bonus point of the campaign.


The left-back’s creativity suggests he can still bring in points even if Villa concede at Selhurst Park.

Targett produced three key passes against Brighton, more than any team-mate.

Palace, meanwhile, have been weaker down their right flank recently.

They have conceded 12 chances on that side of the pitch in the last four Gameweeks, compared with only four down the left flank.

Targett’s potential for points in defence and attack can help him enjoy another successful outing under Gerrard this weekend.
