The Scout says Newcastle winger has improved his goal threat ahead of trip to Southampton

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 10 in Fantasy Premier League.

Matt Ritchie (NEW) £5.9m

The Newcastle United winger is owned by only 0.5 per cent of FPL managers for his trip to Southampton.

Ritchie has only provided one assist and 18 points over his eight Gameweek appearances this season.

But his recent improved goal threat could punish Saints on Saturday.

He managed only one shot inside the opposition penalty area in the opening five Gameweeks.

But Ritchie has recorded eight shots in the box over the last four matches.

Vulnerable defence

That total is at least double that of any Newcastle team-mate, and impressively places him fourth among FPL midfielders.

Southampton's defensive statistics further strengthen his prospects.

Since Gameweek 6, their totals of eight goals against and 44 shots conceded inside the penalty area are both ranked third-bottom in the league.

The improving Ritchie can take advantage and open his goal account for the season at St Mary’s Stadium.
