Scout Squad

The Scout Squad for FPL Gameweek 24

The Scout Squad panel return to offer their long-list of players to be considered for our regular Scout Picks feature, which will be published on Tuesday ahead of the upcoming set of Premier League fixtures in midweek.

The 72 nominations listed will be whittled down to a squad of 14 (with the starting XI not exceeding a total cost of £83.5m) ahead of the Gameweek 23 deadline at 18:45 GMT on Tuesday.

Joe, Peter, Paul and Az – who have five top 1,000 finishes between them – expand on their notable selections and omissions in the article below.

Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United can each boast two assets with unanimous backing this week, while there is plenty of support for Wolves players too.

Paul said…

Similar to the previous Gameweek, the value on offer in defence and up front can help free up cash for our Scout Picks midfield.

Along with the list of the usual names and players finding form ahead of Gameweek 24, I’ve added three differentials.

Sead Kolasinac could prove a productive option for Arsenal’s home clash with Cardiff.

The left-back has delivered six or more points in four successive matches at the Emirates.

Indeed, since his first start of the season in Gameweek 11, only Lucas Digne (28 to 21) has created more chances among FPL defenders.

Kolasinac has four favourable matches in the next five, which includes a visit from Southampton in the reduced Gameweek 27.

Ryan Babel impressed on his debut down the Fulham left flank in Gameweek 23.

Despite being limited to 54 minutes, the Dutchman fired three efforts on goal, more than any team-mate.

He now welcomes a Brighton defence that have conceded in each of their last seven road trips.

In all likelihood, this is the only time we’ll be able to put forward Fernando Llorente’s name for an article this season.

Although the return of Son Heung-min places question marks over his pitch-time, the South Korean’s recent comments on his own energy levels suggest that Llorente can retain his start at home to Watford.

Only Paul Pogba (eight to six) has fired more shots in the box over the last two Gameweeks than the Spaniard, who was on the scoresheet against Chelsea in the EFL Cup last Thursday.

Joe said…

On last week’s Scoutcast, I strongly advocated doubling up on attacking assets from teams with strong fixtures as a way of climbing the rankings.

Gameweek 24 looks a perfect time to put this strategy to the test with Liverpool, Manchester United and Wolverhampton Wanderers offering a wealth of goal threat as they take on favourable opposition.

Costing less than £17.0m between them, Manchester United’s Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford are already a popular attacking double-up. Since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over in Gameweek 18, they have amassed an incredible ten goals and seven assists between them in the league. They take on a Burnley side that is the third-worst for conceding shots in the box over their last six away matches.

Pairing Mohamed Salah with Roberto Firmino or Sadio Mane looks set to be another fruitful move. The Brazilian striker gets my vote after scoring five goals over his last four league run-outs. Visitors Leicester look particularly obliging after letting in four against Wolves last time out and having the second-worst record for conceding close-range efforts over their last six away days.

Meanwhile, Wolves’ Diogo Jota (£5.9m) and Raul Jimenez (£6.5m) look an ideal combination as we look to squeeze as much quality as we can into our budget. The Portuguese midfielder has double-digit points hauls in two of his last four league appearances, while his Mexican team-mate has found the net six times and assisted a further seven goals this campaign. They host a West Ham outfit with only one clean sheet in their last six league matches.

Az said…

Another tragedy underpins an FPL Gameweek and I’d like to express my sympathy after the events that have once again shocked us all – my condolences to the families of Emiliano Sala and David Ibbotson.

On to happier things, and midweek games are a favourite of mine and many others in the FPL community. The Double Gameweek looks set to have people considering their transfers even more so than usual but before that, we have a single Gameweek to attend to and some fantastic fixtures to try and reap the benefits from.

Arsenal looks a tough test for Cardiff this week and the overshadowing events add an extra layer of uncertainty as to how Cardiff will perform. I think a comfortable home win will be likely for Arsenal and Sead Kolasinac, a favourite of mine, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has flattered to deceive recently, should reward owners with good hauls.

I also like the look of Wolves vs West Ham, where West Ham are in a funny situation with Marko Arnautovic’s U-turn and two bad results against Bournemouth and AFC Wimbledon. Wolves have all the momentum going into this one, and I reckon Matt Doherty and Diogo Jota, who have both scored vital last-minute goals recently, are going to be in the points again.

I also see great potential in the Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United games, with all four teams playing sides with suspect defences. Add in Everton versus a beleaguered Huddersfield side and I can’t see this being anything but a high-scoring week. Should be a good one!

Peter said…

In amongst the excitement of Double Gameweek speculation and, in one case, confirmation, we mustn’t overlook the importance of setting up our sides to accumulate bread-and-butter points in single weeks such as this. Of course, free transfers become particularly precious as canny managers start building for the future but my selections are solely built on form, the Gameweek 24 fixtures and, as always, a degree of gut instinct.

The budget takes a battering this week with no fewer than 11 selections drawn from the current top six sides (though none from a Spurs team which has a series of alluring fixtures but which I was struggling to trust even before Sunday’s FA Cup defeat to Palace).

When Ole Gunnar Solskjær took the helm at Old Trafford before Gameweek 18, Marcus Rashford immediately joined my selections, albeit that I advocated a wait-and-see approach generally. Since then, he’s had more attempts on goal (27) than any other striker and has five goals to his name, a goal tally matched by team-mate Paul Pogba, who is equally as near-essential on current form as Burnley come to town.

The Red Devils’ latest victims, Arsenal, entertain a Cardiff side which recently shipped three goals at St James’ Park. I’ll be at the Emirates on Tuesday and fully expect to see the attacking combination of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette – with six goals and three assists between them in the last six matches – inflict further woe upon the Bluebirds. Sead Kolasinac’s attacking threat has been well-documented and I’m hopeful that he can add to his four assists for the season in a game where he may well spend more time in the opposition half than in his own.

In truth, very few (if any) of my selections this week are particularly left-field, though Lucas Digne can be thankful that Huddersfield’s form (a single point from the last six games) is marginally worse than his own side’s (two wins and four defeats during the same period).

There is at least a nice circular narrative in Diogo Jota’s inclusion. Like many, I included him in both my first Scout Squad of the season and my own team and watched in dismay as the Portuguese racked up blank after blank. I don’t expect his hat-trick heroics against Leicester to be a regular thing but as the excellent recent Scout article on the midfielder concluded: “Jota certainly has the underlying stats to back up his recent form.”

The Community Champion

This week’s contender is Joax2, who is currently ranked 19,831st in the world and who hasn’t finished outside the top 15k in his two seasons as an FPL manager.

The Community Champion who has the best lead over the Scouts during 2018/19 will win a £100 Amazon voucher (currently we can only offer Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com vouchers).

Last weekend, Athletico Timbo was beaten by our Scout Picks 70-54 with a 4-3-3 line-up of Alisson (1); Lindelof (2), Robertson (5), Bednarek (2); Pogba (8), Sterling (10), Salah (15), Pedro (2); Aguero (5), Deeney (2), Ings (2).

fclackless’s Gameweek 10 victory over the Scout Squad crew by a score of 77-44 remains the deficit to beat.

    Probably going to save my transfer, GTG?

    Lloris
    Bednarek / VVD / Digne / Doherty
    Salah / Pogba / Richarlison / KDB
    Auba (C) / Rashford

    Hamer / Kamara / AWB / Alli

      Have your WC intact? I’ve had similar issues with a bench that’s not playing/injured & it’s going to do some serious damage next few weeks

      1. ShaunGoater123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        yeah have my WC still.

        This week is a concern as have two players not playing, but Alli will get moved on next week so i'll be back up to two playign subs in AWB & Bednarek most weeks. Kamara i'll fix down the line but as i'm playing a 3-5-2 most weeks, he can just sit 3rd on my bench instead of a 4.4 midfielder

    2. Shark Team

                    Arteta has done it before too. I don’t think Brian Kidd does though. He just hangs around these days holding bits of paper, pretending to look busy.

        I’m wondering whether to wait and find out or bring Laporte in for a hit. What do you reckon, are you waiting?

        1. Jafooli
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years

          Will give it this GW and then bring Laporte in if Alonso doesn’t start. Or if he does 😀

                I know. If he does get dropped I’ll be benching him too. It is a tricky one. I don’t really want Laporte, especially for a hit.

    8. yer old da
      • 9 Years

      Sane or KDB and why?

      1. TONY123
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Sané because of his explosiveness, both are equally likely to be rotated imo

    9. Stoichkov#8

      1 month, 20 days ago

      If you could get both Pogba and City mid who would you get this week? (other will come in next week)

      a) Pogba
      b) Sterling/Sane

      2. TONY123
        • 3 Years

        Depends on who you are selling, but for me Pogba this week, Sané next

          You know FFS has truly jumped the DGW shark when someone seriously suggests Pogba & Robbo out for Mendy & Sane

            Serious FOMO.

            Just don't fancy Digne/Kun. Want Sterling really, but can't get him really without sacrificing Salah/Haz/Kun.

              I'd say go with your gut, but man that move has the potential to backfire...

              Pogba home to Leicester... Robbo away to West Ham - and that's just in GW25

              Both of their fixtures are great for weeks and they are FPL superstars - are they really players you want out of your team

      To have a successful GW27 I think lots of us are going to need a very unusual set of circumstances in the United v Liverpool game.

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        True... but then again, a 1-2 to either side would surely see Pogba, Rash, Salah with decent chances of returns. Possibly Trent & Robbo too.

        i could see that game being very high scoring as liverpool's defence may finally be loosening up and they go back to you score 3 we'll score 5 mode... which utd are already in lol

      2. the Penman
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Couple of Liverpool goals with Robertson involved in one of them, then Rashford or Pogba can be involved in a consolation with impunity. Easy.

      3. Amey
          1 month, 20 days ago

          That's why I haven't got more than 2 from both team's.
          Will get Taa after he is fit.
          Annoying to have more than 3-4 Player's in a single match

        GTG? 1.6 ITB
        Thinking either Fab > Ederson or FAnderson > Richarlison to prep for the DGW...but I feel FAnderson could score as many as Rich this week.

        1FT, still have the Kane money burning a whole in my back pocket but can't afford Barnes -> Aguero or Hojbjerg -> Sane.. should I wait and do Martial -> Sane next week?

        1. KingOllie
          • 3 Years

          I have martial and cant decide if i do the swap to Sane this week or next week.. really frustrating me

            Martial was rested in the cup and it's a great fixture, I fully accept that he needs to go after this but feel he deserves one last go

            1. KingOllie
              • 3 Years

              Gonna be so salty if he blanks (again) and Sane hauls though....

        Richarlison and SIgurdsson to Sane and Jota for -4pts... Looks fine on paper but its Everton, you never know!

          They play huddersfield this week and will have a DGW next, not sure I'd be bold enough to sell. Can you do Siggy to Sane?

          1. Holmes

          wasted chip

          I dont follow the logic in this mate.

          A chip like the bench boost is highly dependent on the worst part of your team (i.e. your bench) is doing well.
          To me it makes sense that most people use this chip in the weeks where many teams, possibly some of the worse ones, have a DGW, since you would then want to both play your main XI (including the heavy hitters) while you also play the "worst part of your team", since they will be playing two matches.

          Playing it in a week like this one, with your team, is effectively hoping that the expected score of those "worst" 4 players is the highest during your entire season.

          In GW24 I would suppose your "worst" 4 players are:
          Fab (wol) - Ings (CRY) - Bednarek (CRY) - AwB (sht)

          To me, this is unlikely to become the best week for your "worst" part of the team, but obviously it is not my call at all, I just dont quite get the logic behind playing the chip. You also have opposing interests within the bench, since a goal from Ings will hurt AWBs clean sheet, resulting in a lower roof for your score.

        One for Burnley fans or those in the know.....

        What are the chances of Dwight McNeil keeping his starting place at Burnley? Is he just benefiting from injuries/suspensions at the moment or has he nailed it down?

        Looking for best options at 4.5m midfielders and his stats are decent.

        1. markloe
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years

          I'm not really either but, he's just signed a new long term contract so clearly seen as a genuine option by Dyche

        Alli to Son no brainer? got 1 FT and Sterling for Man City cover.

        1. TONY123
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          I'm thinking the same but leaning towards Siggy because DGW and Son exhaustion - Son will come in after GW25 though

          No no no no no - do not touch spurs........ Alli to Sane is a much better move (assume you already have Pogba otherwise you wouldn't be asking this question)

            C) F. Anderson and Kamara -> Sterling and Ings for free
            D) F. Anderson and Kamara -> Sane and Wilson for free
            E) F. Anderson and Kamara -> Aubameyang and max. 5.5 midfielder for free?
            F) F. Anderson and Kamara -> Agüero and max. 5.5 midfielder for free?
