The Scout is tipping four low-owned players for a breakthrough Gameweek in 2023/24 Fantasy Premier League. All four are selected by less than four per cent of managers ahead of Thursday’s 18:30 GMT deadline.

Alex Moreno (Aston Villa) £5.0m

The Aston Villa full-back made an immediate impact in his first start of the season last weekend.

Deputising for the suspended Lucas Digne (£4.7m), Moreno scored his side’s first goal in a 2-1 win at Brentford to collect a 10-point haul. 

Having stepped up his fitness following a long-term injury, the Spaniard could be set to reclaim his role as Unai Emery’s first-choice left-back as Villa now host Sheffield United.

Moreno was a big success under his compatriot last season, averaging 4.7 points per match after Emery arrived thanks to three assists and seven clean sheets.

Alex Iwobi (Fulham) £5.3m

After a slow start to the campaign, the Fulham star has been a standout figure in the budget midfield bracket recently.

Iwobi has produced all of his attacking returns this season - three goals and an assist - in the Cottagers’ last three home matches.

He has also picked up three bonus points to return a total of 29 points across those encounters with Wolverhampton Wanderers, Nottingham Forest and West Ham United.

Iwobi can deliver more attacking returns at home to a Burnley side who are without an away clean sheet this season. 

Dan Burn (Newcastle) £4.4m

The Newcastle United defender returned from injury to produce his best score of the campaign last weekend.

Burn’s goal in the Magpies’ 3-0 win over Fulham helped him to a 14-point haul at St James’ Park. 

That took his tally to two goals and five clean sheets in his 12 appearances this season, underlining his potential at both ends of the pitch.

Fixtures against Luton Town and Nott’m Forest in the next two Gameweeks give Burn the chance to continue offering major value in the sub-£4.5m defenders’ price bracket.

Pascal Gross (Brighton) £6.4m

The midfielder’s growing influence on the Brighton & Hove Albion attack could prove decisive at Crystal Palace.

Gross has been involved in five of the six goals the Seagulls have scored over his last four starts.

He has amassed 29 points in those four encounters, scoring once and supplying four assists. 

Palace, meanwhile, has struggled defensively of late, conceding at least twice in five of their last six matches.
