The Scout says Brighton midfielder has the home form to deliver against West Ham United this weekend

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 8 in Fantasy Premier League.

Anthony Knockaert (£5.5m)

The midfielder is owned by only 1.1 per cent of FPL managers ahead of his home encounter against West Ham United.

Knockaert has one goal and three assists for Brighton & Hove Albion, totalling 27 points in the first seven Gameweeks.

At home, in particular, he has been consistent.

The Frenchman has produced a goal or an assist in all three of his appearances at the Amex Stadium, which includes visits from Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

Indeed, he has averaged six points per home match in 2018/19.

Home impact

His underlying statistics also back up Knockaert's growing influence on Chris Hughton's side.

The 26-year-old's totals of 14 shots on goal and 11 chances created are more than any team-mate.

The Hammers arrive without a clean sheet in their three away matches.

They have conceded eight goals on the road, the third-worst record in the Premier League.

Knockaert looks well placed to take advantage of those frailties and extend his fine home run of points.
