Managers in Fantasy Premier League should eye Alexandre Lacazette (£9.6m) as a potential star in Gameweek 16.

The Arsenal forward has not started since Gameweek 12 but has still produced points.

He looks primed for a recall to the starting XI when Huddersfield Town visit Emirates Stadium on Saturday and is one of five Ones to Watch selected by The Scout for Gameweek 16.

Alexandre Lacazette (ARS) £9.6m

Even though he has played only 70 minutes of the last three league matches, Lacazette has still produced a goal and an assist.

Arsenal average scoring two goals a match at home and prepare for a fourth match in nine days against a Huddersfield Town team who have struggled on the road.

Huddersfield have conceded 16 away goals - only three teams have let in more - and have kept just one away clean sheet all season.

Gylfi Sigurdsson (EVE) £7.5m

The Everton playmaker has excelled at home this term, matching the four goals of Richarlison (£7.1m) at Goodison Park, while also supplying an assist.

Only Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) has had more attempts than Sigurdsson's 24 at home, and the 22 chances the Icelander has created is bettered by just two midfielders.

Watford will travel to Goodison on Monday night, having kept just one away clean sheet all season.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson (BUR) £5.9m

Gudmundsson has been a shining light in a tough start to the season for Burnley.

The midfielder has been involved in half his side's 14 goals this season, scoring twice and setting up a further five.

Burnley will entertain a Brighton & Hove Albion team who have managed just one clean sheet on the road, conceding 13 goals along the way.

Robert Snodgrass (WHU) £5.3m

All three of the West Ham United midfielder's assists have come from his last two Gameweek starts.

West Ham host Crystal Palace having recorded back-to-back victories, scoring three goals on both occasions.

Snodgrass's creativity can profit against an Eagles defence who have conceded at least two goals in four of their last five road trips.

Dele Alli (TOT) £8.9m

Alli has produced a goal and an assist from his last two starts.

But the Tottenham Hotspur star was given only an 11-minute cameo against Southampton, suggesting he will feature more prominently for Saturday night's trip to Leicester City.

Spurs have excelled away from home, scoring in all nine of their matches.

Indeed, only Arsenal, with 18 goals, have scored more on the road than Spurs' 17.
