The Scout says Aston Villa defender's set-pieces can punish former club Everton

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

Digne offers strong potential at both ends of the pitch in Saturday’s lunchtime encounter.

Everton struggled in attack in their 1-0 home defeat to Chelsea last weekend, lifting Villa’s chances of a clean sheet.

Frank Lampard's side failed to create a single big chance and produced just eight shots, a total better than only three other sides in Gameweek 1.

Digne was among Villa’s standout creators after Steven Gerrard was appointed head coach in Gameweek 12 last term.

His 34 key passes and four assists from that point both ranked second for the club.

The Frenchman’s dead-ball duties also boost his appeal against former club Everton.

Digne took four of his side’s five corners against AFC Bournemouth last weekend.

Everton, meanwhile, conceded a league-high seven shots from set-pieces in Gameweek 1.

Combined with his potential for a clean sheet, Digne could deliver a bumper haul this weekend.
