GW30 Differentials: Odegaard thriving on the road

The Scout 18 Mar 2022

Arsenal star averages 6.3 points per away start and is among four low-owned players tipped to shine

The Scout is tipping four low-owned players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 30 in Fantasy Premier League ahead of Friday's 18:30 GMT deadline.

Martin Odegaard (ARS) £5.5m, 5.8 per cent owned

A trip to Aston Villa gives the Arsenal playmaker the chance to extend his run of away returns in Fantasy.

Odegaard has blanked in only one of his last six road trips, scoring three goals and assisting a further three.

Over the course of the campaign, he has averaged 6.3 points per start in away matches, more than any other player for the Gunners.

On the road, Odegaard's four goals are joint-top with Bukayo Saka (£6.6m) and Emile Smith Rowe (£5.7m), while his 26 chances created are at least twice that of any team-mate. 

Harvey Barnes (LEI) £6.5m, 3.8%

The Leicester City winger entertains Brentford in his most consistent form of the campaign.

Barnes has blanked in just two of his last nine appearances, matching his season-high haul of 10 points in his last home outing. 

Indeed, he has proven a dependable source of returns at King Power Stadium, producing attacking returns in each of his last six matches there. 

Barnes has amassed 36 points in that run, scoring once and supplying a further five assists.

Patrick Bamford (LEE) £7.7m, 3.1%

After a long spell on the sidelines through injury, the Leeds United forward made his first start since Gameweek 5 last weekend.

Although he blanked in his 45-minute appearance against Norwich City, Bamford’s record on the road looks encouraging for his visit to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Friday.

He was involved in a team-leading 60 per cent of Leeds’ away goals when selected last season, scoring 10 and assisting a further seven. 

Kristoffer Ajer (BRE) £4.4m, 0.8%

The Brentford centre-back has impressed at both ends of the pitch since returning from injury.

Ajer has combined two assists with three clean sheets and two bonus points in his last five matches, totalling 26 points. 

The Bees have kept six clean sheets in the 15 matches he has started this term, compared with just one clean sheet in 14 without him.
