In this feature we scout for players with low ownership but the potential of returns in the coming fixtures. We picked 1 per position this week.............................
Firmino LIV £8.0 Ownership: 1.4%
GW4 Total: 22pts!
Due to Darwin's crazy sending off and Jota's injury, Firmino will start against Bournemouth this week. He played the full 90 against Man U on Monday and we would expect a much better performance against Bournemouth at Anfield. They have to win this. He was in and out of the team last year but still returned 5 goals and 4 assists in the roughly 10 games' worth of minutes he played. He is only a short term player though and we don't see him featuring too much when the forward line is at full strength again, but for the current run of games he could be a good differential at his low ownership.
Wissa BRE £5.4 Ownership: 0.2% GW4 Total: 1pt
Yoane Wissa stands out with such a low ownership and has started 2 of Brentford's last 3 games, delivering an assist last weekend against Fulham. Brentford have a run of good fixtures starting with tomorrow's game against a struggling Everton. He usually plays on the left of a 3 with Toney and Mbeuno and does get in the box often. Last season he produced a respectable minutes to return record with 7 goals 2 assists in roughly 14 games.
Davies TOT £5.0 Ownership: 1.0% GW4 Total: 6pts
Under Conte's supervision, Ben Davies has become a player reborn for Spurs in his favoured Left Side CB role. He gets forward more than the other central defenders for Tottenham, and has already chipped in with an assist against Chelsea earlier on in the season. Tottenham are away against Nottingham Forest this week and Spurs have a great chance of keeping a clean sheet here despite the injury to Christian Romero - Davison Sanchez did well last week as his replacement in the Lilywhite backline. We think Davies has the potential to keep a clean sheet here and hopefully provide some attacking returns when he does get forward.
Fabianski WHU £5.0 Ownership: 1.0% GW4 Total: 8pts
West Ham are the only team yet to pick up a point in the Premier League so far, so they will be desperate to get a result against Aston Villa on Sunday. Aston Villa have been fairly unimpressive this season and we think this fixture will be close. West Ham rested players on Thursday and Fabianski didn't even travel with the team to their European fixture, so should be ready and between the sticks on Sunday. At just 1% ownership, let's hope he saves a penalty or 2...........
