GW3 Differentials: Ilkay Gundogan

The Scout tips four low-property players who could be set for a Gameweek escape in the Fantasy Premier League before Saturday deadline at 11:00 BST.

Ilkay Gundogan (MCI) £7.5m

The German is only held by 2.2% of managers for Manchester City’s visit to Newcastle United.

Gundogan appears to have secured a regular role in central midfield for Man City, starting each of their first two matches this season.

He was quick to make an impact, scoring and winning 10 points in their 4-0 home win over AFC Bournemouth last weekend.

Gundogan’s influence on City’s attack is evidenced by the underlying numbers.

His four shots and five chances created this season both rank among their top three players.

Indeed, his premium-priced midfielder colleague Kevin De Bruyne (£12.1m) is the only teammate to top both of those totals.

Gundogan’s goal against AFC Bournemouth

Newcastle host Pep Guardiola’s side on the back of successive clean sheets in their opening two matches.

But Man City will visit St James’ Park with confidence, having beaten the Magpies 5-0 in their previous encounter at Gameweek 36 last season.

At a cost of just £7.5million, Gundogan has the overall potential to provide major value to Fantasy Sunday.

Don’t forget that the deadline for Gameweek 3 is 11:00 BST on Saturday August 20th.
