The Scout backs the Arsenal forward to build on double-figure points haul at Newcastle

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 5 in Fantasy Premier League.

Alexandre Lacazette (ARS) £9.4m

The Arsenal striker is owned by just 3.2 per cent of FPL managers for his Gameweek 5 trip to Newcastle United.

That is mainly because he didn’t make his first start of the season until Gameweek 4, at Cardiff City.

But Lacazette made an immediate impact against the Welsh side. His goal and assist earned him a 12-point return in the 3-2 victory.

That added to his assist as a substitute in the 3-1 home win over West Ham United in Gameweek 3.

Eye-catching stats

Despite playing just 186 minutes, the Frenchman’s underlying statistics catch the eye.

No team-mate has bettered his totals of six shots inside the penalty area or five shots on target.

This suggests that Lacazette will retain his role as the central striker at St James’ Park.

Newcastle’s defensive record offers further encouragement.

The Magpies have just one clean sheet in the first four Gameweeks. And their 11 big chances conceded rank among the bottom five teams.
