The Scout is tipping four low-owned players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 25 in Fantasy Premier League ahead of Saturday's 11:00 GMT deadline.

Marc Cucurella (BHA) £5.1m, 3.6 per cent owned

A Double Gameweek 25 for Brighton & Hove Albion looks promising for the Spaniard's prospects in Fantasy. 

The Seagulls are among only two sides scheduled to play twice in the upcoming round of matches, with trips to Watford and Manchester United.

Cucurella has combined an assist with six clean sheets and 14 bonus points in his 19 appearances, underlining his multiple routes to returns. 

The defender has created 26 chances since making his debut in Gameweek 4, second only to the 27 of Leandro Trossard (£6.0m) for Graham Potter's side.

Michael Olise (CRY) £5.4m, 0.5%

His assist against Norwich City in midweek extended the Crystal Palace midfielder's impressive run of form.

Olise has scored three goals and supplied four assists in his last six matches in all competitions.

Indeed, when selected this season, he has been involved in a team-leading 54 per cent of the Eagles' goals.

Olise now faces a Brentford side who have conceded at least twice in each of their last five matches. 

Diogo Dalot (MUN) £4.6m, 3.6%

At a cost of only £4.6m, the Portuguese provides a cut-price route into Man Utd's defence for their pair of Double Gameweek 25 home meetings with Southampton and Brighton. 

Dalot has started seven of Ralf Rangnick's nine matches in charge, including both encounters in their recent Double Gameweek 22.

He has proven a reliable source of returns at Old Trafford in particular, earning 18 points in his three appearances for the German. 

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (EVE) £7.9m, 4.7%

Having returned to full fitness, the forward could be set for his first appearance for Everton under new manager Frank Lampard.

The Toffees host a Leeds United side who have conceded 17 goals in their last five away matches in all competitions. 

Calvert-Lewin has a fine recent record against Marcelo Bielsa's side. He has scored in each of his last two meetings, totalling 16 points.
