GW16 Differentials: Cristiano Ronaldo

The Scout believes Man Utd forward will start and score against Fulham

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

Cristiano Ronaldo (MUN) £10.2m

The forward is selected by only 2.7 per cent of managers ahead of Manchester United's visit to Fulham.

Interest in Ronaldo in Fantasy is understandably low, as he has struggled for starts under Erik Ten Hag and scored a single goal all season.

However, injuries to wingers Antony (£7.5m) and Jadon Sancho (£7.2m) have forced a tactical rethink recently.

Marcus Rashford (£6.7m) has mainly played as a forward this term but has been moved to the flank to cover, allowing Ronaldo to start each of the last two Gameweeks.

Although he did not score in either of those matches, the Portuguese has recorded a team-high nine shots.

With both Antony and Sancho still doubtful, Ronaldo looks set to earn a third straight start this weekend.

That lifts the appeal of investing in him as a one-Gameweek pick, prior to the unlimited free transfers period after Gameweek 16.

Fulham's defensive record offers further encouragement as they have conceded at least twice in seven of their last nine matches.

Ronaldo can take advantage of those frailties and get back on the scoresheet on Sunday.
