The Scout on why Man Utd full-back has schedule and set-piece appeal to reward Fantasy managers

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

Telles has started at left-back in both of the Red Devils’ matches under Ralf Rangnick.

The interim manager has immediately improved their defensive prospects, keeping back-to-back clean sheets against Crystal Palace and Norwich City.

By contrast, Man Utd had only managed two shutouts in their 12 encounters for former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Set-piece appeal

Telles has also been handed a share of set-piece duties by Rangnick, which lifts his potential for attacking returns.

The Brazilian had three shots from such situations in the last two matches, more than any team-mate. He also took three of his side’s 15 corners in that period. 

Favourable fixtures

Man Utd’s short-term schedule suggests Rangnick’s side can extend their run of defensive form.

They also face Burnley and Wolverhampton Wanderers in the next three Gameweeks, with both sides among the bottom three for goals scored this season.

Combined with his set-piece threat, Telles could bring in some explosive hauls over the coming period.
