The Scout is tipping four low-owned players for a breakthrough Gameweek in 2023/24 Fantasy Premier League, ahead of Saturday’s 11:00 BST deadline.

Pedro Neto (Wolves) £5.5m

Owned by just 0.4 per cent of managers, the Wolverhampton Wanderers winger faces Liverpool on the back of three assists and 17 points in the last two Gameweeks.

Neto’s attacking prospects appear to have been boosted by the appointment of new manager Gary O’Neil over the summer. 

The Portuguese’s eight shots in the box is a team-leading total, while his 13 key passes rank joint-fifth among midfielders in Fantasy.

Liverpool, meanwhile, have struggled in defence in the early stages of 2023/24, keeping only one clean sheet in their opening four matches.

Raul Jimenez (Fulham) £5.4m

A home fixture against Luton Town gives the Fulham forward an opportunity to deliver his first returns of 2023/24.

TV Info

Jimenez, who is in only one per cent of FPL squads, has boasted a strong all-round threat since joining from Wolves over the summer.

His seven shots, six shots in the box and two big chances created are all more than any other Fulham player.

Luton visit Craven Cottage without a clean sheet this season and have conceded nine goals in their opening three matches.

Lucas Digne (Aston Villa) £4.5m

The Aston Villa full-back has the form to profit at both ends of the pitch against Crystal Palace.

Owned by a mere three per cent of Fantasy managers, Digne has supplied five assists in his last four appearances in all competitions, in addition to keeping two clean sheets.

That run includes a 10-point return against Everton in his last home match.

The Frenchman has created 10 chances in the first four Gameweeks, more than any other Villa player.

Dominic Solanke (AFC Bournemouth) £6.5m

AFC Bournemouth’s forward is in consistent form as he prepares to take on Chelsea but continues to be overlooked, with an ownership of less than three per cent.

TV Info

Solanke has two goals, an assist and 21 points in his first four appearances under new head coach Andoni Iraola.

Meanwhile, his nine shots, seven shots in the box and six key passes are all team-leading totals this season.

That suggests he will be the Cherries’ key figure against a Chelsea side who have managed just one clean sheet in 2023/24.
