GW4 Differentials: Jarrod Bowen

Jarrod Bowen, West Ham

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

Jarrod Bowen (WHU) £6.4m

The West Ham United winger can be found in only 1.0 per cent of squads for the trip to Southampton.

Bowen has been overshadowed by the early-season displays of his team-mates Michail Antonio (£7.9m) and Said Benrahma (£6.4m).

Antonio is the top-scoring player in Fantasy, selected by 50.2 per cent, while Benrahma sits joint-second in midfield and is owned by 30.2 per cent.

But, despite blanking in each of his first three matches, Bowen has also had a big influence on the Hammers’ attack.

His eight chances created are joint-top along with Pablo Fornals (£6.0m) for David Moyes’ side.

Exploiting Saints’ vulnerability

Bowen’s role as West Ham’s main set-piece taker could prove decisive against Southampton.

He has taken 15 of their 21 corners this term.

Southampton, meanwhile, have been poor in defence this season, failing to keep a clean sheet in their three matches.

They have been weak at defending aerial situations, in particular.

Indeed, they have allowed their opponents 12 headed attempts, second only to the 15 of Arsenal.

Bowen’s delivery can exploit those frailties, earning him his first returns of the season.

Tomorrow: Romain Saiss (WOL)
