The Scout on why Man Utd full-back can offer fantastic value under Ralf Rangnick

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

Diogo Dalot (MUN) £4.4m

The full-back is owned by only 0.4 per cent of managers for Manchester United’s trip to Norwich City.

Dalot was preferred to Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.1m) in Ralf Rangnick’s first match in charge at home to Crystal Palace last weekend.

The interim manager made an immediate impact as United won 1-0, earning the hosts their first home clean sheet of the season.

Dalot’s defensive work proved crucial with the right-back winning three of his four tackles.

That helped earn him two additional bonus points for a total of eight points against the Eagles.

Rangnick’s new formation could also lift Dalot’s prospects further in Fantasy.

Man Utd’s 4-2-2-2 set-up requires the full-backs to push forward and offer width when they are attacking.

Indeed, Dalot and Alex Telles (£5.0m) recorded four of United's five successful crosses between them against Palace, providing two apiece.

Norwich, meanwhile, have struggled in attack recently, scoring one goal in the last three Gameweeks.

If he continues to start ahead of Wan-Bissaka at right-back under Rangnick, Dalot’s multiple routes to returns can make him a bargain buy in Fantasy.
