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

Bruno Fernandes (MUN) £9.6m 

The playmaker has been picked by under eight per cent of managers for Manchester United’s encounters with Newcastle United and Brentford.

Fernandes’ recent displays in the Red Devils’ Double Gameweek 20 and Double Gameweek 22 suggest he can rival Marcus Rashford (£7.3m) for output.

He delivered 31 points over those four matches, just behind the 32 of Rashford.

The underlying numbers suggest Fernandes should be considered as a double-up option alongside his in-form team-mate.

Fernandes’ 14 chances created in his last four matches are more than any other player in Fantasy, compared with Rashford’s single key pass.

The Portuguese has also recorded seven shots in the box to the nine of Rashford, underlining his huge all-round potential.

Man Utd’s schedule beyond Double Gameweek 29 raises the appeal of their two midfielders for the run-in.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), their matches against Everton and Nottingham Forest over Gameweeks 30 and 31 each score two.

Although they then have a Blank Gameweek 32, Erik ten Hag’s men have a favourable Double Gameweek 34 against Aston Villa and Brighton & Hove Albion to follow.

Owning both Rashford and Fernandes for those kind fixtures could prove a winning tactic in Fantasy.
