FPL GW1 Free Transfer Glitz: Dwight McNeil

Paneorder on why a share of set-pieces for Burnley midfielder lifts his prospects in Fantasy

Paneorder is selecting an overlooked player who could be set for an impressive Gameweek 1 in 2021/22 Fantasy Premier League.

Dwight McNeil (BUR) 6.0m 0.3% owned

The Burnley midfielder can be found in just 0.3 per cent of squads for his opening match at home Brighton and Hove Albion.

Playing at both flanks in a four-man midfield, McNeil supplied five assists over their last season.

Burnley approach the start of the new campaign on the back of their fourth draw (including three goalless draw) against Cadiz at Turf Moor last weekend.

Brighton & Hove Albion, meanwhile, have yet to win in August and lost to Getafe 2 goal to nil.

They scored just three goals in as many pre-season matches, keeping one clean sheet.

That raises McNeil’s prospects of points in attack and defence in Gameweek 1.

Favourable fixtures

His opening schedule also suggests he could provide a steady stream of returns at the beginning of 2021/22.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), only one of first seven matches score more than three. McNeil’s ability to bring in clean sheets, combined with his improved prospects for returns, could see him thrive over that early stretch.
