The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 18 in Fantasy Premier League.

Christian Atsu (NEW) £5.1m

The Newcastle United midfielder is owned by just 0.1 per cent of FPL managers for the home match with Fulham.

Atsu has benefitted from a recent change of tactics by Rafael Benitez and appears to have secured a place in the Magpies’ first XI.

He has started each of the last three matches, having just done so once in the opening 14 Gameweeks.


Although Atsu has yet to claim a goal or an assist, his underlying statistics point to an improvement in Fantasy.

His seven shots on target over the last four Gameweeks are joint-top with Marcus Rashford (£6.9m) among all players.

Fulham travel to St James' Park with a poor defensive record.

They have yet to keep a clean sheet this season, conceding at least two goals in eight of their nine away matches.

Atsu looks well set to profit from this lack of resilience to flourish as a cut-price midfield pick.
