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.

Danny Welbeck (BHA) £6.5m

The forward is owned by only 0.8 per cent of managers for Brighton & Hove Albion’s home meeting with Newcastle United.

Welbeck proved influential in the Seagulls’ 2-1 win over Manchester United last weekend.

He supplied an assist and collected two bonus points for a seven-point haul at Old Trafford.  

His display in Gameweek 1 continued the 31-year-old’s excellent form from the end of the previous campaign.

Welbeck's assist for Gross v Man Utd

Welbeck amassed 41 points in his final five outings of 2021/22, combining three goals and five assists with nine bonus points.

The underlying numbers highlight his goal threat for Brighton.

Welbeck recorded eight of his side’s 13 big chances from Gameweek 34 onwards last season.

He also produced 10 shots on target, second only to the 13 of Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane (£11.4m) among forwards.

Brighton’s encounter with Newcastle starts an extended run of kind matches that adds to Welbeck's appeal.

The Seagulls avoid all of last season’s top six in their next seven matches.

Welbeck has the goal threat to deliver more returns across that period, providing strong value at an affordable cost.
