GW20 Ones to watch: Maguire has all-round potential

The Scout 28 Dec 2018

The Scout says Leicester City defender's threat from set-pieces will trouble Cardiff City this weekend

Back-to-back wins over Chelsea and Manchester City have raised the prospects of Leicester City players in Fantasy Premier League.

Chief among them could be defender Harry Maguire (£5.4m).

The centre-back has the potential to deliver at both ends of the pitch when Cardiff City visit on Saturday.

He is one of five Ones To Watch selected by The Scout for Gameweek 20 ahead of the Saturday 29 December, 14:00 GMT deadline.

Harry Maguire (LEI) £5.4m

Leicester have kept six clean sheets this season, with four of them coming in the last nine Gameweeks.

Visitors Cardiff, meanwhile, have managed to score a league-low five goals on the road.

Maguire's threat from set-plays, and the delivery provided by James Maddison (£6.8m), could be a key weapon as the Bluebirds have struggled in that area all season.

Only Newcastle United, with 90, have allowed more chances from set-pieces than Cardiff's 86.

Gerard Deulofeu (WAT) £5.4m

Two goals and an assist in the last three Gameweeks have marked the Watford winger out as an in-form asset.

Deulofeu has been a key creator for the Hornets in that period, too, with his eight key passes more than any team-mate.

He will entertain a Newcastle side who have kept only one away clean sheet since Gameweek 10.

David Silva (MCI) £8.5m

Injury has reduced the Manchester City playmaker to only 20 minutes of action over the last three Gameweeks.

He looks set to return to the teamsheet as Pep Guardiola's side head to Southampton on Sunday afternoon.

Silva, who has five goals and two assists this season, will face a Saints side without a clean sheet since Gameweek 10.

Kieran Trippier (TOT) £6.1m

Rested for Tottenham Hotspur's 5-0 win over AFC Bournemouth, Trippier has started only three of the last seven Gameweeks.

But those three fixtures brought in points from two clean sheets and an assist.

Trippier is set to return to the starting XI for the visit of Wolverhampton Wanderers, with Spurs looking to keep a third consecutive home clean sheet.

Jesse Lingard (MUN) £6.8m

The winger has continued his excellent run of form under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Lingard has two goals and two assists in his two matches with the Norwegian in charge.

He now has 40 FPL points in the last five Gameweeks ahead of a home encounter with AFC Bournemouth.
