Scout Picks

Gameweek 19 Scout Picks – In-form Salah the key man

We have chosen our best XI players for Gameweek 19.

Because of the tight turn-around since Gameweek 18, this line-up was not chosen by our Scout Squad this week.

Instead, it was assembled by a select few within the Fantasy Football Scout editorial team.

We are, as ever, under the £83m budget and line-up in the classic Fantasy formation of 3-4-3.

Goalkeeper

Vicente Guaita (£4.2m) has started the last two Crystal Palace matches filling in for the injured Wayne Hennessey. Given the short space of time between their win at Manchester City and their Boxing Day match, plus the lack of up to date information, we expect the Spaniard to be in net once again in Gameweek 19. Crystal Palace’s chance of a clean sheet this week are fairly strong as they host Cardiff City, who have scored fewer away goals than any other Premier League side this season.

Defenders

Matt Doherty (£5.2m) gets into the Scout Picks based largely on his attacking potential. He has pulled in offensive returns in three of his last four Premier League outings and should benefit playing against the poor Fulham defence on Boxing Day. Furthermore, Fulham have had their struggles going forward recently, while Wolves are typically more defensively sound away from home than at Molineux. Therefore, a double-figure haul for Doherty this week is not entirely out of the question.

Luke Shaw (£4.9m) is selected ahead of Huddersfield Town’s trip to Old Trafford. The Manchester United left-back faces the division’s lowest scorers in the Terriers, while also offering some attacking potential of his own now that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has unshackled the Red Devils.

Dejan Lovren (£4.9m) is chosen as the cover for Liverpool’s hugely impressive defence in Gameweek 19. The Reds have conceded just two league goals at home this season while Newcastle are particularly goal-shy away from home. Only Fulham and Huddersfield have found the net fewer times on their travels this season.

Midfielders

After his recent displays, there was no way we couldn’t include Mohamed Salah (£13.2m). Just one player has recorded more shots on target than the Egyptian in the last four Gameweeks, hence why he has found the net four times in that time. Furthermore, he is comparing very favourably with his 11 chances created too, offering a spread of points. In truth, he looks fully responsible for the functionality of Liverpool’s attack right now. We were initially concerned about his 90-minute spell against Wolves in Gameweek 18, but assessing the form of his colleagues and the five-day gap between that Friday night encounter and Boxing Day’s meeting, we’re confident of a starting role.

We are keeping faith in Eden Hazard (£11.0m) in spite of his blank against Leicester in Gameweek 18. The Chelsea man continues to offer excellent creativity compared to the rest of the league and is also a threat in front of goal. While he will probably be shifted to a wider role against Watford, he should be able to capitalise on the fact that the Hornets have slipped into the whipping boy bracket. In the last four Gameweeks, only Burnley have conceded more shots in their penalty box than Watford.

Paul Pogba (£7.9m) is our chosen representative from the Manchester United ranks for their Gameweek 18 meeting with Huddersfield. We believe he is the most likely to start given the seeming lack of competition for his place and Solskjaer’s clear admiration for his abilities. Only Rashford had more shots than Pogba against Cardiff, while Anthony Martial was the only Red Devil to create more chances. The Frenchman obviously claimed three assists from the trip to South Wales and we expect his influence on this new-look Manchester United team to continue in Gameweek 19.

Richarlison‘s (£7.0m) trip face Burnley fills us with confidence that he will get some attacking returns. As already mentioned, the Clarets remain the division’s worst side for shots allowed in the penalty box, which will give Everton the perfect opportunity to make up for their 6-2 thrashing at the hands of Tottenham on Sunday. We’d expect Richarlison to return to the centre-forward position after playing on the left-wing in Gameweek 18, perfect for him to build on his three attacking returns in his last four.

Forwards

Harry Kane (£12.5m) returns to the Scout Picks on the back of his 15-point haul against Everton. In the last eight Gameweeks, he has averaged 7.13 points per game and has been recording underlying statistics that suggest his form is sustainable. This week he faces a Bournemouth defence that has kept just clean sheets away from home this season and conceded an average of 1.75 goals on their travels in 2018/19. While they have seen a reduction in their goal attempts conceded in the box over the last four Gameweeks since being thrashed by Liverpool, they were up against Brighton in Gameweek 18, who are particularly poor on their travels themselves. Based on the form over the last month or so, we expect Spurs to score heavily again.

Raúl Jiménez (£6.2m) comes back into the Scout Picks in light of Wolves travelling to face Fulham’s defence. He has had 10 shots in the last four Gameweeks, a figure which was somewhat diminished by facing that tough Liverpool defence last time out. Going into that Friday night encounter he ranked joint-third for efforts inside the box. That translated to six attacking returns in Jiménez’s seven Premier League outings prior to the Liverpool game, which is certainly fine form for a Fantasy asset at his price point. With little competition for the centre-forward position at Wolves, it’s hard to see him being benched for this one.

Danny Ings (£5.6m) completes our line-up ahead of Southampton’s Thursday night meeting with West Ham. The forward has been in sensational form since Ralph Hasenhüttl took over the Saints. In his last two matches he has found the net three times and is proving the poster boy for the new manager’s high-pressing tactics. Meanwhile, the Hammers are still struggling for clean sheets, with just three this season.

Substitutes

Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£4.3m) was originally our cover for the Crystal Palace defence, losing out only because the Eagles’ goalkeeper was £0.1m cheaper. Those who own the defender should seriously consider starting him this week as Palace set to host the Premier League’s worst away-day attack in Cardiff.

Felipe Anderson (£7.4m) gets into the Scout Picks as he continues to offer strong underlying statistics. He and his West Ham colleagues were unfortunate not to score against Watford in Gameweek 18 and will be keen to get back to winning ways at Southampton. The Saints are still waiting for their first clean sheet since Gameweek 10.

Marcus Rashford (£7.0m) came close to getting into our starting XI but lost out for budgetary reasons when compared with the other forwards we picked. The youngster should start against Huddersfield with Romelu Lukaku reportedly still out of the fold for personal reasons and has two goals and two assists in his last five Premier League outings.

Community Champion

Due to the quick turnaround between Gameweeks, there is no Community Champion for Gameweek 19.

      People want triple West Ham then want triple Utd.

      Haha yeah it is rather shocking but then again the world is full of sheeps...now how funny would it be if Martial is actually benched and Fanderson gets a haul?

      Why not? But Kun will get a game or 2 breather with Jesus getting starts now.

  5. Tsparkes10
    7 months, 27 days ago

    Still kinda sweating about my bench... team is:

    Fab
    Alonso Doherty Lovren Digne
    Rich Shaq Haz Sane
    Kane Rashford
    (Button, Jimenez, AWB, Anderson)

    Hmmmmmmmmm

    1. Taking the Mkhitaryan
      • 2 Years

      Not playing anderson is silly

      1. Tsparkes10
        7 months, 27 days ago

        Who do you recommend dropping?

        1. Taking the Mkhitaryan
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 27 days ago

          Digne probably.

            7 months, 27 days ago

            Cheers

    2. Black Knights
      • 7 Years

      That’s what happens when you wildcard. Not much you can do besides Bench Boost.

      1. Tsparkes10
        7 months, 27 days ago

        Scared One gets dropped and no playing gk makes me feel a bit daft

        1. Black Knights
          • 7 Years
          7 months, 27 days ago

          Should get you through Christmas rotation, but you’ll have to downgrade to fodder to upgrade elsewhere and go more traditional once things have settled.

          1. Tsparkes10
            7 months, 27 days ago

            Yh will do. Shaq or Anderson downgraded when fixtures change i think

            1. Taking the Mkhitaryan
              • 2 Years
              7 months, 27 days ago

              Downgrade shaq not anderson

              1. Tsparkes10
                7 months, 27 days ago

                Andersons fixtures turn soon so I'll keep an eye 🙂

    3. Dele
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 27 days ago

      That bench will haunt you.

      1. Tsparkes10
        7 months, 27 days ago

        I know :(. Can see like 20 points

    4. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 27 days ago

      I’d play Anderson over any of those defenders!

      1. Tsparkes10
        7 months, 27 days ago

        Feel they have more chance of haul but i guess its dumb

    5. Irbox ⚽
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 27 days ago

      Poor distribution of funds there sorry mate

      1. Tsparkes10
        7 months, 27 days ago

        Downgrading Shaq to Cama after this fixture I think and then upgrade one 🙂

        1. Irbox ⚽
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 27 days ago

          Good option! One of my FPL pearls is to avoid bench headaches and points on the bench. Strongest/most expensive starting 11 with a fully playing cheap bench is the way to go

          1. Tsparkes10
            7 months, 27 days ago

            Yh fair enough mate 🙂 but tbf Doherty and AWB were cheap for me.

        2. Black Knights
          • 7 Years
          7 months, 27 days ago

          Yep. Don’t beat yourself up now, you’ll need a sub or two over this period. Just sort when it all settles down.

          1. Tsparkes10
            7 months, 27 days ago

            Yhyh will do 🙂 cheers

      I think most of us have epic benches right now. It’s a good week for fixtures for the template, unlike two weeks ago !

      Some rotation will help.

      My bench is Fanderson, Digne, AWB.

      Hopefully the bench is neeeded.

      1. Tsparkes10
        7 months, 27 days ago

        Hahaha thinking same. Rest of team? I'm also tempted to bench them 3 I think

        1. Flapjack ✅
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          7 months, 27 days ago

          Downgrading Laca has made my team very bench headache. Which over Xmas is fine by me !

          Ederson
          Alonso. Doherty. Kola.
          Sterling. Sane. Richarlison. Martial
          Jiminez. Kane. Rashford

          Subs; Fanderson. Digne. AWB.

          1. Tsparkes10
            7 months, 27 days ago

            V similar and nice 🙂

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 27 days ago

            Same 'issue' for me - I just have Haz Son and Robbo instead of Kola Sterling and Martial. Hoping rotation bites hard!

    7. clodhopper
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 27 days ago

      Too much money on bench

  6. Team Cruel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 27 days ago

    Martial buyers selling for Pogba/Lingard after the MEN article? Or just benching?

    1. Ross From Friends
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 27 days ago

      LOL oh my...

    2. Internal Error
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 27 days ago

      Selling for Lukaku

    3. rokonto
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 27 days ago

      Do tell... what's the MEN article?

      1. Team Cruel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 27 days ago

        Manchester evening news. Martial not spotted amongst the 18 squad members.

        1. MY DJ NAME IS PIMP CURRY
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 27 days ago

          They also said he's expected to join up with them

    4. Flapjack ✅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 27 days ago

      I’m starting him. Vice captain might be moved off.

  7. Nicoson
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 27 days ago

    Does Sane to Son make sense?

    1. Leaf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 27 days ago

      Wouldn’t sell Sane yet personally

    2. Ravager
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 27 days ago

      Feels like a transfer waiting to happen. Son isn't nailed still and leaving in a few games anyway.

      1. Leaf
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 27 days ago

        Son is sooo nailed , apart from normal rest rotation .

    3. Ross From Friends
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 27 days ago

      No Sane hasn't unleashed his potential just yet...he hit the post and had 5 shots in the box....so not sure why you would sell?

  8. Ravager
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 27 days ago

    On WC, in a place where I activated it but can't find any moves without seriously sacrificing form players (Auba,Salah)/ players I have value wrapped up in (Robbo/Alonso etc)...currently on this. Any suggestions?

    Fabianski (Button)
    Alonso Robertson Doherty (AWB, Bennett)
    Salah Son Sane Richarlison (Camarasa)
    Auba Rashford Jimenez

    Why did the scout picks article take priority over captain sensible?

    Absolutely ridiculous that captain sensible isn't out yet.

    1. Leaf

      Happy Xmas Virg

      Who is your captain?

        Merry Christmas!

        Kane at the moment. Tempted by Son.

      Relax chief, it's Christmas. These guys have a life.

        The article didn't have to be written today. There's no excuse.

        Paul got it out on Christmas Day last year.

          There's no excuse for you being a knob, but that's never stopped you.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 27 days ago

            It's not a free site put together by people who do this in their free time.

            It's a cash cow. It's a big business.

            Ergo you can't roll out the "these guys have a life" line.

            You can't take our money and say stuff like this. It's one or the other. Does that make sense?

            1. Nascimento
              • 4 Years
              7 months, 27 days ago

              We pay literally £12.50. I’d have been more upset if they HAD released the article. Prefer they all enjoy their days with their families. If serious, get a grip 🙂

              1. FPL Virgin

                • 3 Years
                7 months, 27 days ago

                All I'm saying is that captain sensible should have taken precedence over scout picks. I won't have enough time to digest the article and make a decision now with 11.30am deadline.

    3. LǝgleSs e|even
      • 3 Years

      Cause the Scout Picks article wasnt by the ScoutSquad this gw..

        Neither is captain sensible.

      Merry Chrimbo, Virg!

      Just captain Kane and relax.

      David and co have been working themselves ridiculously hard getting these articles ready, in a tiny gap between gameweeks mind, so that they could have some free time with their families etc over Christmas.

      I'm terribly sorry that these free articles posted on Christmas were not to your satisfaction.

      1. FPL Virgin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 27 days ago

        It's a paid-for members article.

    8. Black Knights
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 27 days ago

      Why do you need telling who to captain? You have your own mind, plus the poll, plus all the discussions in here.

      1. Fitzy.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 27 days ago

        He needs someone to blame if it goes wrong.

      2. FPL Virgin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 27 days ago

        That would negate the whole point of a website that provides FPL advice in return for an annual fee.

        1. JackJack
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 27 days ago

          Go to bed, Virgin.

          1. FPL Virgin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 27 days ago

            All I'm saying is that the captain sensible article is far more important than the scout picks article. Who has unlimited transfers to make a fresh team every gameweek, anyway? Plus the picks team have been getting embarrassing scores in recent weeks.

    9. DeadStar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 27 days ago

      The captain sensible article may be out tomorrow morning, which will be fine. I prefer to have Scout picks earlier.

      1. FPL Virgin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 27 days ago

        Having the captain sensible article out on the morning of such an early deadline is going to reduce its usefulness imo.

      2. FPL Virgin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        People can't sit around F5ing the site all morning waiting for the article to appear.

        People are going to hit the site and ergo the article at different times throughout the morning.

        There simply isn't enough time to digest it when it isn't out the night before the gameweek deadline.

          Aren’t these articles always pretty late in midweek? Christmas is certainly the one time I would expect them to struggle. I get your point about being a paying member. I’m not sure what the terms are though - whether there is a guarantee of all these articles.

          1. FPL Virgin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 27 days ago

            Yes you're right. There are no RLSAs.

            Captain sensible has been coming out the night before this season - even when it's a Friday deadline. Which has been great.

    10. Slouch87
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 27 days ago

      To some extent I do agree with FPL Virgin on this one. Iindisputably this site is a cash cow with a service which those who chose to, pay for. However it is unreasonable to expect an article to be published on Christmas day when most other businesses are closed ( and Incidently on Boxing Day too).
      I think that you have lost your sense of perspective on this.

      1. FPL Virgin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 27 days ago

        There have been 3 articles published today.

        Why wasn't captain sensible - the most important one - one of them?

        The scout picks quite frankly have been ridiculous recently. My nan's FPL team is outscoring them. Why couldn't that article be delayed instead?

        1. Twenty Twenty Vision
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 27 days ago

          Yawn

        2. Slouch87
          • 3 Years

          "My nan's FPL team is out scoring them "
          Ruth overtones.

            This is not a local coffee shop business. This is a website and a membership based on English football and rightly or wrongly English football takes place over Christmas. I don't think it's unreasonable to have the article today (like last year). Especially when the article could have been written in advance.

            1. Slouch87
              • 3 Years
              7 months, 27 days ago

              If it is such a massive problem the answer is simple.
              Don't renew your membership.
              Put up or shut up.

          Captaincy is a lottery this week, and the scout picks article takes two tenths of bugger all to write. Captain sensible on the other hand...

          Man up and run the same stats tables across your players and opponents and work it out for yourself if it means that much to you. The rest of us will be off somewhere enjoying ourselves.

      Need them to tell you everything big boy?

      Your whinging is a nailed on starter this week, so there's a good place to start with your captaincy.

    1. Drogba Legend
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 27 days ago

      Currently on five at the back..not sure how I feel about it. Currently on:

      Alonso - Laporte - AWB - Kola - TAA*

      Deciding on if I want to move TAA (Lovren/Shaw) or Laporte (Trippier/Shaw)

  11. Dirty Harry

    Is this -4 crazy? Unfortunately 0.1 short for Shaw. Would shift to a 3-5-2

    Chicha + Obiang + Alonso OUT
    Kamara + Son + Lindelof (or a 4.8) IN

    Patricio (Hamer)
    Robertson Lindelof Doherty AWB Bennett
    Sterling Son Martial Rich Felipe
    Kane Auba Kamara

      • 5 Years

      Mad. Kamara (fodder). Lindlof not great (yet). Son brilliant but off to Asia cup soon. Would have to have a replacement in mind to cover that. Plus is he nailed or due a rest?

    I think im going to go mad. What do you think of this move. -8.

    Auba / Sane / Fraser to

    Salah / Jimenez / Matial or Lingard?

    1. Totti

    Evening.
    Start AWB (CAR) or Alonso (wat) ?

    1. Taking the Mkhitaryan
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 27 days ago

      Has to be Alonso
      Has to be

      1. Drogba Legend
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 27 days ago

        Agreed

    2. Lebowski85
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 27 days ago

      Alonso. Absolutely. AWB will get 6 points max. Alonso could haul...he always has that potential for BAPS

    3. Twenty Twenty Vision
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 27 days ago

      I have a sneaking feeling AWB is due an assist and a sheet and bonus points. Safer bet is Alonso without doubt as we know his capabilities but AWB could be due and is bigger gamble but could be fun.

    Best captain pick?

    - Salah
    - Kane
    - Sane
    - Auba

    1. Ravager
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 27 days ago

      Salah/Kane...I own Salah so lean towards him

    2. Internal Error
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 27 days ago

      Switch Sane and Auba around- in that order

  22. Ady87
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 27 days ago

    Everton and Spurs fixtures looking nice.

    Sane & Balbuena > Son & Digne?

    Would leave:

    Lloris
    Kola Luiz Digne
    Sterling Martial Son Anderson
    Kane Auba Wilson

    Thoughts?

    1. Ravager
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 27 days ago

      Not sure I'd wanna lose Sane but you do have City cover still. Both for free? If so, yes

    2. Big Mac 24
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 27 days ago

      Great team without Salah and Eden, could be risky though.

      Defence doesn’t shout clean sheets though.

    3. Twenty Twenty Vision
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 27 days ago

      Nice fixtures but rotation totally expected as 4 games in 10 days each. Most games in short space of time compared to other 18 teams.

  23. Schwifter
    7 months, 27 days ago

    Do you think it's weird going for 5 defenders, four midfielders and one forward? This is what have atm:

    Gk- Fabianski

    Def -
    Robertson
    Alonso
    Digne
    Wan-Bissaka
    Doherty

    Mid-
    Richarlison
    Salah
    Snodgrass
    Maddison

    Fw -
    Kane

    Subs -
    Hart
    Chicharito
    Fraser
    Murray

    1. Big Mac 24
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      No problem with that

    2. Twenty Twenty Vision

      Imo you are choosing your best 11.

  24. Big Mac 24
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 27 days ago

    Just played my WC and feel good! Any views appreciated!

    Lovren in Digne out
    Son in Felipe Anderson out
    Salah in Sane out
    Ings in Aubameyang out
    Guaita in Hamer out
    Trippier in Doherty out

    Guaita (Fabianski)
    Alonso Lovren Robbo Trippier (AWB 2)
    Hazard Salah Son McCarthur (Snoddy 1)
    Kane (C) Ings (Kamara 3)

    McCarthur goes on streaks and is onone at the mo, plus fancy cardiff fto score so AWB bench.

    1. JackJack
      • 2 Years

      Why drop Doh?

      1. Big Mac 24
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 27 days ago

        See Trippier and Lovren bettering his and Digne’s points moving forward

    2. Ravager
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 27 days ago

      Not sold on the Mc pick but you have your logic. Question though, had no hesitation in dropping Auba?

      1. Big Mac 24
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 27 days ago

        Been hesitating since the weekend!

        1. Big Mac 24
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 27 days ago

          Something had to givefrom him Hazard Kane and Salah. Could’ve done just Sané and Anderson to Salah and a 4.3 but need all players available and I like the balance of this squad now. Yes, I’m worried about anothe brace but feel Ings could score 9

    3. MikeLowrey
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 27 days ago

      I like it. Only change I’d make is keep Doherty over Trippier, and use that extra to upgrade Snoddy, McArthur or Kamara

      1. Big Mac 24
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 27 days ago

        Was considering that with maybe Snoddy to martial/Lingard for example.

    4. Lebowski85
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 27 days ago

      I've also played my wildcard....but to be honest you've subbed out consistent & reliable layers for potential short term gain. Apart from Salah....none of those players are long term picks.

      1. Big Mac 24
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 27 days ago

        I follow that - but I’m (obviously) hoping for a great 4 week return from Son before he leaves and also from Lovren until Gomez returns - Only see City possibly breaching pools goal. Trippier is long term lock-in, Ings looks good for that too.

        1. Lebowski85
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 27 days ago

          I love Trippier. I've also got him in. I wouldn't rely on Ings. His fitness is so suspect. Could be amazing value though.....your team definitely looks set for the next few weeks. Good luck!

          1. Big Mac 24
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            7 months, 27 days ago

            Cheers, and thanks all for the feedback and counters.

            I know Citeh will hve to reappear in my lineup very soon, and by then Son, Ings/Snoddy and one premium defender will likely hVe to give way!

            Good luck everyone!
