The Scout says Southampton playmaker can capitalise on recent starts with a run of home matches

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 23 in Fantasy Premier League.

James Ward-Prowse (SOU) £5.0m

The Southampton midfielder is owned by only 0.2 per cent of FPL managers ahead of a home encounter with Everton.

Ward-Prowse has impressed in a run of three successive Gameweek starts.

He has created six goalscoring chances during that period, more than any team-mate.

The playmaker appears to have secured a regular role under new head coach Ralph Hasenhuttl, even with midfield team-mate Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (£4.4m) returning from suspension this weekend.

Set-piece prowess

Ward-Prowse has also been handed the majority of set-piece duties for Southampton.

He took all eight of their corners over Gameweeks 20-22.

Crucially, he also was handed penalty duties against Leicester City last weekend, scoring his first goal of the season.

Southampton have a kind run of opponents to come, with the Everton match one of four favourable home fixtures in the next six Gameweeks. 

Saints' next fixtures
23 EVE (H) 3 26 CAR (H) 2
24 CRY (H) 2 27 ARS (A) 4
25 BUR (A) 2 28 FUL (H) 2
Scoring opportunities

Everton travel south with only one clean sheet in the last nine Gameweeks.

Ward-Prowse can continue his recent output to offer a cut-price source of FPL midfield points.
