Underrated gem Pascal Gross now Dream Team's most in-form midfielder – overlooked by 98% of managers | The Sun
WHAT will it take for Dream Team managers to acknowledge Pascal Gross' (£3.9m) qualities?
Brighton's No13 currently features in just 1.8% of teams, making him considerably less popular than Kaoru Mitoma (£3.7m) and Solly March (£3.8m).
The latter appears in 10.2% of teams while the Japan international is the fifth-most selected asset in his position overall with an ownership of 19.3%.
And yet it's Gross who is the Seagulls'leading midfielder having moved onto 38 points with another fine performance at the weekend.

The 32-year-old extended his impressive record against Manchester United when he scored Brighton's second goal at Old Trafford on Saturday, in some style too.
A deft feint and shimmy completely foxed Lisandro Martinez (£3.2m) and opened up the necessary space to drill a shot into the net and cement the visitors' superiority.
Gross took the Red Devils for nine points when all was said and done to promote himself up to fifth in the overall midfield rankings, with a Europa League fixture against AEK Athens still to come before Gameweek 5 is complete.
One could waste hours debating the subjective matter of underrated Premier League players but few individuals could mount as compelling a case for themselves as Gross.
A neat technician and one of the league's better set-piece takers, he is among several players who have taken their game to another level under Roberto De Zerbi.
