GW17 Differentials: Lacazette can extend West Ham streak

The Scout 13 Dec 2021

Arsenal forward is among four Differentials picked by The Scout for Gameweek 17

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 17 in Fantasy Premier League

Alexandre Lacazette (£8.3m) 1.1 per cent owned 

A home match with West Ham United raises Lacazette's appeal as an overlooked gem in Gameweek 17.

The Frenchman has been selected as the Gunners’ lone striker in each of the last two Gameweeks, scoring and earning seven points against Southampton last weekend.

Arsenal 3-0 Southampton highlights

Lacazette, who is owned by only 1.1 per cent of managers, has a prolific record against West Ham, scoring five goals and supplying two assists in his last six meetings.

Indeed, he has scored in each of those last three matches against the Hammers, totalling 25 points in Fantasy.

Oleksandr Zinchenko (MCI) £5.3m, 0.7%

The defender has started two of the last three Gameweeks, helping Manchester City to their ninth clean sheet of the campaign against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the weekend.

Zinchenko looks set to continue at left-back at home to Leeds United, with Joao Cancelo (£6.8m) serving a one-match suspension.

The Ukrainian has shown plenty of attacking potential recently, producing three shots and three key passes in his last two matches. 

John McGinn (AVL) £5.8m, 1.6% 

The midfielder’s seven key passes is a team-leading total for Aston Villa under Steven Gerrard.

Over the last four Gameweeks, McGinn has scored and earned 10 points against Crystal Palace, also supplying an assist to claim seven points against Leicester City.

Marc Guehi (CRY) £4.5m, 1.7%

Palace’s centre-back offers strong all-round potential at home to Southampton.

Guehi has scored both his goals this season, against Burnley and Aston Villa, in the last five Gameweeks.

His totals of five shots in the box and three shots on target, both ranked joint-second among defenders during that period.

Saints, meanwhile, have struggled in attack on their travels, scoring only three goals in their previous six away matches.
