The Scout says Everton midfielder can provide an alternative to Theo Walcott during Richarlison's absence

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 4 in Fantasy Premier League.

Gylfi Sigurdsson (EVE) £7.4m

Everton’s playmaker is owned by just 1.5 per cent of FPL managers ahead of a home match with Huddersfield Town.

He has been overshadowed by the goal threat from his midfield team-mates Richarlison and Theo Walcott (both £6.7m).

Sigurdsson has only managed one assist in the Toffees’ first three Premier League matches under Marco Silva.

Creativity

But the underlying statistics show his creativity has been a big factor.

No player has supplied more successful crosses than his eight over the opening three Gameweeks.

And only four players have bettered the Icelander’s eight chances created.

Sigurdsson’s prospects are further boosted by Huddersfield’s defensive record.

The Terriers have conceded 57 shots and 11 big chances, with both totals being more than any other side.

A strike in the midweek Carabao Cup win over Rotherham United underlined Sigurdsson’s goal threat.

Ally that to his creative influence and he can be Everton’s key player, with Richarlison still suspended.
