Listed as a midfielder in Fantasy, Cornet has played as a forward since joining the Clarets last summer.

The Ivorian has scored six goals in his 11 starts, returning 4.4 points per match this term.

Cornet's output fares well when assessed against other midfielders in Fantasy. 

Indeed, his average of 144.2 minutes per goal places fifth among midfielders with more than five goals this season. 

The underlying numbers also strengthen the case for Cornet.

His total of 13 shots on target is more than double any other Burnley player apart from the nine of Dwight McNeil (£5.7m).

Burnley also have a Double Gameweek 27 to follow, facing Crystal Palace and Leicester City.

Crucially, Cornet scored against both of those opponents earlier this season.

At a cost of only £5.9m and playing up front, Cornet can exploit those extra fixtures and deliver standout value over the coming period.
