The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 17 in Fantasy Premier League.

Gabriel Jesus (MCI) £10.1m

The Manchester City forward is owned by just 1.6 per cent of FPL managers for his home match against Everton.

Jesus has benefited from a recent injury to Sergio Aguero (£11.2m) to start two of the last three Gameweeks.

Cause for optimism

The Brazilian has returned just one assist in that period, but his underlying statistics indicate he has boasted a major goal threat.

Indeed, Jesus's total of nine shots inside the penalty area over Gameweeks 14 to 16 is more than any other player.

As Aguero remains a major doubt for the weekend, Jesus could be handed another start on Pep Guardiola’s teamsheet.

Home comforts

And his home statistics also raise his points potential.

The 21-year-old has averaged a shot inside the box every 19.3 minutes at the Etihad Stadium. 

The Toffees defence has struggled to keep out opponents on their travels, with just one clean sheet away from home.

Jesus can seize upon that lack of resilience to get among the goals in Saturday's early kick-off and pay back those who have faith in him.
