The Scout on why Man Utd’s reliable home form lifts Dutchman’s appeal for Double Gameweek

The Scout is tipping four low-owned players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 22 in Fantasy Premier League

Wout Weghorst (MUN) £6.0m

The Manchester United forward is owned by only 0.9 per cent of FPL managers for the Red Devils' Double Gameweek 22.

Weghorst has started each of United's four matches across all competitions since joining this month, with Anthony Martial (£6.5m) out through injury.


The Dutchman arrived on loan on the back of eight goals and four assists in 16 league outings for Besiktas this season. 

He also scored twice for Holland in their FIFA World Cup 2022 quarter-final tie against Argentina.

At a cost of only £6.0m in Fantasy, Weghorst can offer major value for Man Utd’s pair of home encounters with Crystal Palace and Leeds United.

Erik ten Hag’s side have impressed in attack after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, scoring 23 goals in their last eight matches at Old Trafford.

They have been consistent over that stretch, scoring at least twice in each of those encounters.

Weghorst scored his first goal for Man Utd in a 3-0 EFL Cup semi-final first-leg win at Nottingham Forest last week.

He is showing signs of improving form to profit from his two home matches and provide big value in DGW22.
