The Scout is tipping four low-owned players who can give managers an edge in both Fantasy Premier League and FPL Challenge.

Kevin De Bruyne (Man City) £10.5m

The Manchester City playmaker could prove an ideal option in the inaugural Gameweek of FPL Challenge.

De Bruyne is currently a doubt for his side’s home encounter with Arsenal on Sunday afternoon, which makes him an unappealing midfield pick in Fantasy Premier League.

But managers in FPL Challenge can profit from the late deadlines and monitor Pep Guardiola’s teamsheet prior to finalising their team.

De Bruyne's premium price tag is also no problem as there is an unlimited budget in FPL Challenge for Gameweek 30.

If fit, De Bruyne’s record against the Gunners last season suggests he can deliver a major haul at the Etihad Stadium.

He produced two goals, an assist and 19 points in the corresponding fixture in 2022/23, while also delivering a goal, an assist and 13 points at the Emirates Stadium.

Marc Cucurella (Chelsea) £4.8m

The fit-again Chelsea defender looks a strong prospect at both ends of the pitch at home to Burnley and is owned by just 0.4 per cent of FPL managers.

Cucurella has started at left-back in each of the Blues’ last two matches in all competitions, with rival Ben Chilwell (£5.4m) dropping to the bench.

The Spaniard has quickly seized his opportunity, scoring his side’s opening goal in their 4-2 FA Cup win over Leicester City last time out.

Burnley, meanwhile, have been poor in attack on their travels this season. In away matches, they rank among the bottom two clubs for shots, shots in the box and big chances. 

Luis Diaz (Liverpool) £7.5m

Owned in less than 10 per cent of squads, the Colombian could prove the best double-up option alongside Mohamed Salah (£13.1m) for Liverpool’s kind upcoming schedule.

The Reds are among only seven sides with a Double Gameweek 34, facing Fulham and Everton.

Prior to that, they also have three home matches in the next four Gameweeks, starting with a visit from Brighton & Hove Albion this weekend.

Although Diaz has disappointed in Fantasy recently with just one goal and one assist in his last four outings, the underlying statistics tell another story.

His totals of 20 shots and 15 shots in the box in his last four appearances are both more than any team-mate. 

Bryan Mbeumo (Brentford) £6.7m

Brentford’s Cameroonian marked his return from injury with a substitute outing against Burnley in Blank Gameweek 29. 

Mbeumo was a big success in Fantasy at the start of the season, averaging 5.8 points per match over the first 15 Gameweeks before his spell on the sidelines, where his ownership in FPL dropped below six per cent. 

Having stepped up his fitness over the international break, Mbeumo could be unleashed from the start when the Bees host Manchester United this weekend.

As one of only seven sides who are not expected to have a Double Gameweek over the remainder of the campaign, Brentford’s players are likely to be overlooked in Fantasy.

Yet their upcoming schedule indicates Mbeumo could be poised for a strong finish to the season. According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), six of their eight matches from Gameweek 31 onwards score just two.
