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

Gabriel (ARS) £5.3m

The centre-back is owned by only 6.9 per cent of managers for Arsenal’s Double Gameweek 26 home matches against Brentford and Wolverhampton Wanderers ahead of Saturday’s 11:00 GMT deadline.

Gabriel has averaged 5.2 points per match this season thanks to his multiple routes to returns. 

He has combined three goals with 11 clean sheets and 11 bonus points.

That includes a 14-point haul against Wolves in Arsenal’s last Premier League match, with the Brazilian scoring in a 1-0 win at Molineux in Gameweek 24.

The underlying numbers highlight Gabriel’s impressive goal threat this season.

His seven shots on target have been bettered by only four other defenders in 2021/22 Fantasy.

Furthermore, his 16 shots in the box rank joint-sixth in his position, more than double the seven of his more popular team-mate Kieran Tierney (£5.1m), who is owned by 12.9 per cent of managers.

Both of Arsenal’s Double Gameweek opponents have struggled in attack recently, raising the Gunners' prospects of more clean sheets.

Brentford and Wolves have each failed to score in two of their last three matches in all competitions.

When that factor is combined with his attacking potential, Gabriel can prove a standout pick.
