Paul said…

I’m tipping a double-up on Liverpool’s defence at home to Burnley, with both their full-backs more than capable of hefty hauls in Sunday’s early kick-off.

A number of pricey strikers have obliging opponents this weekend and in order to balance the Scout Picks budget, I’ve gone with three midfielders under £6.5m.

As usual, I’ve included some overlooked options in my squad, with Harry Maguire and Manuel Lanzini among my favoured differentials.

Both impressed last weekend and, with strong fixtures in Gameweek 31, now could be the time to get on board.

Maguire was afforded license to roam forward as Leicester switched to a back-three in their first match under Brendan Rodgers, firing three attempts on goal against Watford.

It’s his aerial threat, however, that could prove the undoing of Fulham.

Maguire has recorded 16 headed attempts – placing him fourth among defenders – and sits third for efforts on target, with 11.

The Cottagers, meanwhile, have conceded 84 aerial efforts, which is the fourth-worst record in the Premier League.

Lanzini set the tempo in his first start of the season as West Ham breezed past Newcastle.

Not only was he ranked first for successful passes in the opposition half, the Argentine also received more passes in this area of the pitch than any other West Ham player.

Essentially, that suggests Lanzini is the go-to player for his team-mates when the Hammers have possession in attack. Having played a part in 40% of their goals when selected last term, his influence will surely grow over the run-in.

Jeffrey Schlupp also deserves a mention, with one goal and three assists in the last five Gameweeks since moving into central midfield for Palace.

The Ghana international recorded eight key passes, seven shots and five efforts in the box over that run – all totals that place in the top five defenders.

Joe said…

On this week’s Scoutcast, we discussed the notion that a successful FPL team needs a good combination of well-owned ‘shields’ to protect rank and differential ‘swords’ to steal a march on opponents.

With that in mind, I’d like to see this week’s Scoutcast packed with ‘shields’ from Manchester City or Liverpool, who both have favourable home ties and will be desperate to maintain momentum in their league title chase.

I favour a double-up on Reds attackers for Burnley’s visit, given the strong home form of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane. Between then they have scored 21 goals at Anfield.

The only player to surpass their respective home tallies of ten and 11 is Sergio Aguero. His 15 Etihad goals and more than 40% ownership make him another essential rank protector to include this week.

Eden Hazard’s seven home goals ahead of Wolverhampton’s visit sees him added to my list of ‘shields’.

Meanwhile, his team-mate Gonzalo Higuain looks a perfect ‘sword’. The Argentine is owned by a mere 4% of FPL managers and has already amassed three goals across his five league run-outs.

Cesar Azpilicueta is another low-owned Chelsea gem for the Scout Picks committee to consider, with three assists in his last four matches.

Crystal Palace assets offer FPL managers a further opportunity to climb the rankings, with Wilfried Zaha’s five successful strikes in as many league starts a key asset when rivals Brighton drop by Selhurst Park. The Ivory Coast international has scored an impressive four goals in his last quartet of appearances in all competitions against the Seagulls.

I’ve tentatively handed a selection to Leicester’s Ricardo Pereira, who has delivered me just two points since drafting him in three Gameweeks ago. With a mere nine goals on the road, I think his opponents Fulham will at last hand him clean sheet returns.

Neale said…

I won’t rehash the case for Wilfried Zaha as I covered the Palace winger fairly comprehensively in this week’s Digest, but Jeffrey Schlupp has finally made it into my selections after weeks of clamouring for a call-up.

A defender in Fantasy Premier League, Schlupp was deployed “out of position” in central midfield in Gameweeks 26-28 but – even better – was pushed further forward into the front three in Gameweeks 25 and 29.

Schlupp was covering for the suspended Zaha on the left flank against Fulham but played in the same team as the Ivory Coast international at Burnley on Saturday, with Zaha moved over to the right wing.

A benching is always a possibility with Schlupp but even if Andros Townsend is recalled against Brighton, the Ghanaian utility player could move back into the midfield three and still pose plenty of threat against a Seagulls side that has conceded two or more goals in each of their last five Premier League away games – and be eligible for clean sheet points, of course.

I’m rooting for a low-scoring affair at St. James’ Park on Saturday, with Martin Dubravka and Lucas Digne both making my selections.

The Magpies have kept clean sheets in three of their last four home fixtures but if Everton are to breach Rafael Benitez’s mean backline, it could well be from a set-piece situation – as happened at the London Stadium last Saturday.

Newcastle have consistently conceded chances from set plays all season (more than any other side) and Digne has taken more successful corners than any other defender in 2018/19.

The Toffees also come into this match off the back of two clean sheets plus decent underlying stats (fourth for fewest shots in the box and big chances conceded, joint-first for fewest shots on target conceded) in their last six away matches.

With premium buys Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah all shamelessly nominated, I’ve also sought to include some budget players should we require them in the Scout Picks.

David Brooks is fit again after a month on the sidelines, with his price having dropped to an inviting £5.0m during his absence.

Bournemouth are next up against Huddersfield, who have conceded more chances from their left flank over the last six Gameweeks than any other side – something Brooks could exploit if deployed on the right wing.

Based on points per million, Brooks is the best-value FPL midfielder under £6.0m this season.

Manuel Lanzini is purely an “eye test” punt, following his display against Newcastle last weekend.

While the Argentinean midfielder blanked and didn’t set the world alight from an underlying stats point of view (other than a 97% pass success rate), he looked sharp in a 90-minute showing and was lauded by his manager after the game.

The wealth of options that Manuel Pellegrini has at his disposal is a worry from a rotation perspective but West Ham representation against a free-falling Cardiff side, devoid of the services of Sol Bamba and with their fans starting to revolt, seems a necessity.

Peter said…

With just four points from their last six outings, it’s fixtures over form for Leicester City with the condemned Lilywhites in town. That said, with three goals in his last four matches, Jamie Vardy has been consistent, though not explosive.

During that time, Leicester’s defensive assets have frustrated but I’m sticking with Ben Chilwell. The England youngster and Ricardo Pereira have each created six chances in that period; the Portuguese leads 2-0 for big chances created, but Chilwell carries a slightly bigger goal threat with two shots on target.

With 21 chances created in his last four matches (just one big chance), I’m also tipping James Maddison to supply the bullets for Vardy.

Speaking of goal threat, the two main title rivals are tied on 13 goals each in their last four home matches, with opponents Burnley and Watford each averaging just under two goals conceded per game recently.

The Reds and the Sky Blues are likely to feature heavily in our selections then and – with only Vardy and Harry Kane posing anything close to their threat according to the bookies – Mohamed Salah, Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero form a formidable, if costly trio. Salah, of course, is in lamentable form but having removed him before his hat-trick at Bournemouth, I’m turning a deaf ear to the doubters for a player who has averaged an attacking return in each of his 14 appearances at Anfield (ten goals and four assists).

Brighton have shipped ten goals in their last four away days, including four against Fulham. Only Trent Alexander-Arnold (also selected) has created more big chances than Patrick van Aanholt’s three recently and the Dutchman has notched at least five goals of his own in each of the last three seasons, albeit that he is languishing on one strike so far this campaign.

Meanwhile, Wilfried Zaha leads Michy Batshuayi in recent games for goals, shots on target, chances created and big chances created so I’ve favoured the Ivorian over his team-mate.

Budgetary restraints lead me away from some tempting attacking options from both teams at the Emirates as Arsenal entertain Manchester United in the weekend’s final action. Instead, an outlay of a mere £12.4m secures me the services of Miguel Almiron and Manuel Lanzini.

Almiron has nothing to show for his four shots on goal and nine chances created since joining the Magpies but the potential is there.

Lanzini, like most of the Hammers’ attacking players, is a gamble given rotation but I desperately want representation against a Cardiff defence that will be missing Sol Bamba and for whom Sean Morrison is yet to regain his stride following injury. Obviously, some reliable pre-deadline team news regarding Marko Arnautovic’s position may alter this train of thought, but Lanzini sneaks into fifth spot for now.

The Community Champion

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).

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

The Community Champion for Gameweek 30 will be announced in our Scout Picks on Friday.

    How best to fit Vardy in this lineup?

    Ederson
    Robertson / TAA / Pereira / Digne
    Salah / Son / Pogba / Maddison
    Aguero / Jimenez

    Fabianski // Barnes / Camarasa / Doherty

    Jimenez > Vardy leaves me 0.6m short.

    1. CAPTAIN_WALES
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Downgrade Digne?

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 16 days ago

        It's an idea I'm playing with but feels like a wasted transfer given he plays 31/33, and has a decent fixture.

        1. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 16 days ago

          Could sell him next week, however.

    2. Hotdogs for Tea

      Sell Kun

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 16 days ago

        Not vs. Watford, I don't think.

    3. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Downgrade Ederson - spending too much on keepers.

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 16 days ago

        I think so too Jarvish!

        Easy to get back for FH32 as no value tied up, and allows a better match up in GW33 than Fabianski vs. CHE.

        A fair few has advised against and I can see why but...

      • 2 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Diop (West Ham) if your sell value on Digne is above 4.9 which i believe it is?

      But he plays in 31 and looking at your team you already have 4 defenders in 31, my thinking here is potential in midfield as you must have some money itb you can ugrade Son or Pogba to Haz? If not, i might consider a switch in 31 involving Kun to Vardy, Son or Pogba to Haz?

      Doherty to Diop also a possibility depending on SV on the former? You have Digne who easily can be another Wolves def if you feel the need in 32.

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 16 days ago

        Thanks for the response man.

        General plan is:

        GW30: Jimenez > Vardy
        GW30: ???

        GW31: Son > Hazard
        GW31: Aguero > Higuain

        Right now that leaves me 0.5m short in total. Easient way to make that 0.5m and end up with a better fixture is probably via shipping Ederson, although Digne has its merits.

        The main disappointment is that I'm probably going to be short of a BOU attacker this week/through the blanks. It may end up being a good thing, but a bit worrisome given fixtures.

        1. bench boost for every gamew…
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 16 days ago

          Bou attacker can be great diff, but they seems a bit out of sorts, but that can change. That´s why Hudds away might give some indications wether to buy or not. My plan is to have one in 33, but not 31, as anderson is out for one of them (Brooks/Fraser)

          If you feel the urgency to get Vardy before Fulham, which is understandable, and your 31 plan also in mind, i would prob just ditch Digne, as you will be hoping he won´t get more than 1 or 2 points with both Hig and Haz in your team? A risk certainly but it includes getting to players vs non players and Chelsea to score vs Everton, a risk with high reward, it´s practically Digne vs Haz, Hig and Diop

    5. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Sell Aguero. He might only get limited min. Might not even start.

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 16 days ago

        Might tho

        1. Freddiebell
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 16 days ago

          That's the gamble you take if you Cap him. Only you can decide that.

      2. bench boost for every gamew…
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 16 days ago

        City 1 point above Pool, Kun is first choice and they have 3-2 lead in CHL in which Jesus have started most games. One week from Bournemouth to Watford. If no injury or sickness Kun starts vs Watford, why making things harder than they need be?

    Feel like I’m the only Alisson owner on this site! He’s been ticking along nicely for some time now

    1. CAPTAIN_WALES
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Think it's mainly because people prefer to own their assets with attacking return potential... but yes ticking along nicely indeed

    2. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Lloris too

    3. mookie
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Not as nicely as pool defenders though. 😉

    4. Mo Mané Mo Problems
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Did Alisson and Digne to Fabs and TAA (-4). Would have never played Digne last week so it paid off immediately by 1 point.

      It gave me 1.0m extra and I feel it is 'easier' to move TAA on if needed.

  4. ZoumasBloomers
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 16 days ago

    Assuming huge value held up in all of them: which one to lose before 31 and 33?

    AWB
    Doherty
    Jim
    Pogba

    Thinking Doherty at the moment since AWB could play in 33

    1. Tshelby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Also on Doherty. Might not even get him back on my wildcard

    2. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      that depends who you replace them with, if Pogba can be Mané or Haz i would prob do that, or Doherty if for a Pool def and at a stretch Chelsea def.

    3. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      I got rid of Doc last week. He won't be in my team now to tell season finishe's.

  5. mookie
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 16 days ago

    Aguero at home: 118(season); 44(last four)
    Sterling at home: 112(season); 35(last four)
    Salah at home: 107(season); 28(last four)
    Mane at home: 102(season); 37(last four)

    Burnley goals conceded away: 27(season); 5(last four)
    Watford goals conceded away: 22(season); 8(last four)

    Happy with Aguero(c) and Mane(vc).

  6. Tshelby
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Yay or nay?

    Jimenez, Doherty, Anderson -> Vardy, Ake, Fraser/Brooks (-4)

    1. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      depends on what bench you currently have, and while Anderson hasn´t set the light on fire recently -4 to get rid when fixtures for West ham and Bournemouth are similar in 30-31 and Fraser not showing much and Brooks just recently back from injury, i´m not totally sure on the last one in your transfer proposition. The first two looks fine but can´t be done without the last one i presume?
      Bournemouths fixture in 33 is far better than West hams, that gives you a slightly better team for 33 but can also therefore be a wait. I have Anderson myself and while i´m not happy it seems more logical to put him out in 33 for a better option then.

  7. Miniboss

    Like many others I´m going FH 32, WC 34 and BB 35 and thinking of using TC on Salah GW36.

    Starting to think TC Aguero against Watford is a better idea... Can someone please talk me out of it?

      Assuming Wilson is fit, is a big ask. However, for the sake of impartiality Wilson has the better fixtures, but Barnes has the fetter form and you know he's fit.

    Was Lanzini on set-pieces, does anyone know?

    1. CarrollsPonytail
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Free kicks on the left side (so ideal for right footers) seem to Lanzini's. Anything on the other side is Snodgrass. Also a slight threat that Anderson could take the free kick. I wouldn't base your transfers on Lanzini and set pieces.

  17. ZAWAd25
    • 2 Years

    Captain who?

    A) Salah
    B) Sterling

  18. balint84
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 16 days ago

    recommended under 6.5 midfielder?

    Maddison? has bad threat index but plays against Fulham.
    good idead? any other?

    1. Simmoo
      • 4 Years

      Maddison, Lanzini, Brooks all looks pretty good.

    1. CarrollsPonytail
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      It's one of the moves I am looking at. Matched Pereira for stats in Rodgers' first game pretty much and in £0.4M cheaper.

    Captain Sterling or Salah?

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Salah for me and that's just because I've captained him through most of his blanks and would be devastated if I would miss one of his hauls.

  22. Thunder Warrior
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 16 days ago

    Lanzini or Meddison?

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 2 Years

      Maddison for me.

  23. Lingard’s Shin Guards

    Doherty, Jimenez -> TAA, Vardy/Higuain for free?

    1. CarrollsPonytail

    If you had to choose one this week?

    A. Maddison
    B. Brooks

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      I’d go Maddy

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      B - think Maddison might be an English Tadic

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 16 days ago

        Probably not the week to use being a 'Tadic' as a pejorative

    Morning all 🙂

    2FTs & 0.1itb; really want a Pool defender. 0.2 short of Doherty >> TAA so which other move should I make? Thinking Kola >> Evans?

    Fabianski
    Digne • Schar • Kolasinac
    Salah • Mané • Son • Almirón • FAnderson
    Aguero • Vardy
    (Button / Doherty / Bednarek / Kamara)

      Matip?

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 16 days ago

        I did look at that. Surely a bad pick though? Hmm

          7 months, 16 days ago

          He's playing well now and with two cleansheets in a row. 4th worse pick from their current backline but a way in unless you make funds

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 16 days ago

            Yeah true. Would you do the Kola > Evans move if not to get TAA?

            1. mikess
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              7 months, 16 days ago

              I don't trust Leicester defence at all. Prefer a punt on Rice I think unless you take a hit for TAA

      Importance of Pool def in 31 would suggest that your transfer ideas are well founded. Presume you will play Evans and TAA then, if going for it?

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 16 days ago

        Yes I will mate. Good moves?

          Only time will tell. Burnley weakness in defending setpieces so Evans as good choice imo than pereira. Wether Leicester def is a good choice in the end is another matter, but at least on paper decent fixtures. I went West ham defender instead but not sure if i would advice that either-) My thinking is Maddison in midfield as i fancy Leicester games to be highscoring affairs, and West hams opponents are low scoring. Could be a tiny problem going into 33, but it´s solvable with a ft

    Massive, massive game for Salah at the weekend

    If he doesn’t return he’s going to be on EIGHT games in all competitions with only a single goal/no assists going into Bayern Away game

    1. #FPLBhuna
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      I think he could go big this weekend

      Think i'll cap him over sterling and vardy

      What's your armband thoughts this week?

        7 months, 16 days ago

        Same - it’s between him & Raz

        The Fernandinho stats are putting me off City rightly or wrongly

      I can see him getting hauled off if they are winning easily enough by 60/70mins
