GW19 Ones to watch: Aaron Mooy

Huddersfield Town midfielder is back as a value option for Fantasy managers, according to The Scout

The Scout is selecting five Fantasy Premier League players set to make an impact in Gameweek 19.

Aaron Mooy (HUD) £5.3m

The Huddersfield Town playmaker's return to the scoresheet last weekend could be the start of his revival in Fantasy.

Mooy's brace of goals for a Gameweek-high 15 points in the 4-1 win at Watford was a reminder of the value that he can offer.

By Gameweek 6, he was part of 636,000 squads, with his price climbing to £5.7m.

With his ownership now halved and his price down to only £5.3m, Mooy can be a factor again.

Favourable fixtures 

A run of favourable fixtures over the festive period suggests that his modest fee will be money well spent.

Five of Huddersfield's next six Gameweek opponents score just two in the Fixture Difficulty Rankings (FDR).

Huddersfield's next six Gameweeks
19 SOU (A) 2 22 LEI (A) 3
20 STK (H) 2 23 WHU (H) 2
21 BUR (H) 2 24 STK (A) 2

That spell begins with a trip to Southampton.

The Saints have struggled defensively. They are without a clean sheet in nine Gameweeks and have only one in their last 13 matches.

Over the season Mauricio Pellegrino's defence have allowed 92 shots on target. Only Swansea City (95) have conceded more.

Mooy, who has scored or assisted 31% of Huddersfield's goals, can be a key figure on Saturday.

He has created 26 chances, more than double that of any team-mate and, with four goals, he is the joint-leading goalscorer.

Set-piece appeal

The Australian's monopoly of set-pieces is key to his appeal. The designated penalty taker, Mooy is also behind free-kicks and corners.

His quality from dead balls could be a deciding factor against Southampton.

In their nine matches without a clean sheet, Southampton's defence have conceded 36 chances from set-pieces. Only Brighton & Hove Albion (46) have allowed more.

Almost two million managers own either the out-of-form Pascal Gross (£5.9m) or the suspended Abdoulaye Doucoure (£5.4m).

Mooy's burst of form provides a convincing alternative and with the fixtures to thrive, he could be restored as an FPL bargain well into 2018.
