Chelsea vs Newcastle

To be a top-class full-back in the modern day you need to be a creative force. Malo Gusto has been showing signs since the turn of the year that Chelsea just may have one on their hands. Of all their summer acquisitions, the 20-year-old could turn out to be their shrewdest purchase at just £26m.

He's become the first name on the Chelsea teamsheet in recent weeks with his pace, guile and deadly crossing accuracy becoming a huge weapon for Mauricio Pochettino.

Since December 23, Gusto has created 17 chances from open play for his team-mates, averaging at just over two per 90.

That output has led to him registering three assists, including sending in a beauty of a cross for Nicolas Jackson to head home against Brentford. With Newcastle vulnerable down the left flank, Gusto is going to be to the fore. In a game that should see goals flow at both ends, Gusto's assist prices are very tempting, especially in the assist-goalscorer market.

He is 9/1 to assist a goal for Cole Palmer and 14/1 to assist a goal for Jackson.
