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.

      why did Simpson play for bournemouth last time? will he start again?
      I bought him last week as he was cheap... was a nice surprise

      1. Amey

        Bournemouth played 3 CB's system to frustrate City. So he played.
        I doubt it'll happen again.

        Salah TC anyone this week at home to Burnley as good as any if using BB & FH in the DGW'S 32 & 35?

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 17 days ago

          Why not go with Fulham (31) or Huds (36)?

          1. Scotty B
            • 7 Years
            7 months, 17 days ago

            Why not Burnley in 30?

            1. Amey
              • 1 Year
              7 months, 17 days ago

              Burnley have Heaton now. So I won't be confident of TC any player against them tbh

            2. Karan14
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              7 months, 17 days ago

              Because Fulham & Huds are clearly worse teams defensively.

        2. twoplustwo
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 17 days ago

          I would struggle to put the C on a Liverpool attacker at the moment let alone the triple

        3. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 17 days ago

          I'd need to see a lot more before even considering TC a Liverpool attacker.

        4. Ason Willa
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 17 days ago

          He's out of form and Burnley are much better than they were. I question even whether Salah is the right Captain choice let alone TC

          1. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            7 months, 17 days ago

            Yeah, Im not going with him, Mane vs Vardy for me.

            1. Steiger
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              7 months, 17 days ago

              Salah is Salah, he can explode at anytime. Form is irrelevant in my eyes.

      3. Mind över Mata
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 17 days ago

        Waiting for the Chelsea game, but which sounds better? Id lose 0.6m if I sell Doherty:

        A) Hojbjerg -> Fraser
        B) Wan-B -> Luiz
        C) Doherty -> Luiz

        Fabianski
        Wan-B, TAA, Robbo
        Salah, Anderson, Pogba, Hazard
        Aguero, Jiminez, Rondón

        4.0; Doherty, Hobjerg, Bednarak

        1. twoplustwo
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 17 days ago

          Don't understand the worry about "losing" 0.6m especially with two blanks and some hard games coming up

      4. Samwise
          7 months, 17 days ago

          will Masuaku (West ham) play?

              Just worried Son is out of form/fatigued and could be benched where as LEI will likely score a couple vs Fulham.

                Yea I know what you mean. that is why I ditched Son earlier, but if I still owned him I wont ditch before SOU. Also its not guaranteed that Maddi will be on the scoreship

                See what Poch says, but know what you mean.

                Something amiss lately - likely is a full year of football + travel with little rest catching up with him.

              Im leading most of my MLs but still siding with Sterling. Feel thats the way to increase the lead and possibly get back into the Top 1k.

            I think it has to be A.

            - Burnley def better than Watford atm
            - Expecting City to score more goals than Pool
            - Huge Differential

            Im looking at it as a 10-15 point loss if Salah gets a brace and Sterling blanks.
            But 20-30 point gain if the opposite happens.

            Dont think we'll ever be so sure of a Sterling start again this season.

          People holding or cashing in on Doherty prior to his inevitable price drop this week ?

            Got rid for TAA.

              Made this move also. If I want to get Wolves defender might bring in Jonny. Owned Doherty from GW1

            I’m holding for now cos 0.1 drop won’t cost me any tv but just depends on your situation.

            I bought for 4.4 so it doesnt make sense for me to sell him when I already have 3 defenders playing in 31 & 33.

            Dont want a 4th defender and prefer 7 attackers so im keeping.

              Which 3 out of Pogba Sterling Jota & Jimi will you sell to get 7 attackers ? Any value issues with those ?

          Luiz or Azpi is making my head...

          Which one should I go for..?

            Would go Azpi for nailedness or Luiz if you think he’ll be back in this week and save some money.

          I don’t know why this GW managers are still placing Liverpool defenders as great picks because Burnley always scored at least one goal against Liverpool in the past 4 games they played,
          Check this out for yourselves so you won’t think I’m making this up!

            Different teams then and a bit irrelevant really

              7 months, 13 days ago

              Do you still think the same way now ?! 🙂 Told you that Burnley would score according to history.
              Thank god I kept one Liverpool defender and swapped Salah for Sterling !

                7 months, 13 days ago

                Yes I do, still different teams 😉 every game is different and whether or not a team scored the last time they played Liverpool is completely irrelevant for the next game, unless you are superstitious or something 🙂

                  • 2 Years
                  7 months, 13 days ago

                  The reason I said this is that nearly every time Liverpool played against Burnley they conceded a goal, not just because the last time they played....I’m not that daft ! Heh 🙂

                    What is in the past is in the past ... it can’t change the result of future games or goals, just a nice quaint record to chat about 🙂

                      7 months, 13 days ago

                      Yes true. I’m just thinking that Burnley’s way of playing against Liverpool is in some way more efficient in attack or counter-attack than some other teams.

            Yeah, I def agree with Hotdog!
            Personally, Never put faith/stock in any of those “Record vs this Team” or “Always scores vs that team” type of stats!—so much can change in half a season, let alone a year or more!!

            1. aborg
              • 2 Years
              7 months, 13 days ago

              Don’t think those stats changed at all ! Burnley put 2 behind Liverpool.

            Besides the answers above, you should really consider Liverpool defender’s attacking threat...

            You can also check TAA’s, Robertson’s and VVD’s assist/goals scoring rate recently so you won’t think I’m making this up!

          Wow members RMT tool does not rate Brooks at all! And seems to think WOL will destroy Burnley in GW32

          Given I plan to FH in 32 it doesn't change things much but still....

            Yeah, RMT gave me the final push to favor Fraser over Brooks!
            If Brooks and/or Wilson are back in the team, makes everyone play better imo!

          Few dilemmas :

          1. Worth getting rid of Jiminez (0.7 tied in him) to allow Hig, King/Wilson and Vardy for 31 33?
          2. Mane, VVD, Robo to join Salah, TAA?
          3. Fraser or Brooks?

            1) Can you get a decent XI for 31 out without losing Jimi ? If not, then do it - poitns trump pounds. Otherwise, it depends on your chips. If you're FH32 / WC34, / BB35, then keeping Jimi seems a nice option if you can carry him on your bench for a few weeks - I'm doing this with him (and Doherty) - also
            2) Robbo
            3) Brooks

            1. Tsparkes10
              • 1 Year
              7 months, 17 days ago

              Thinking about doing that yh... Doh, Jimi and AWB on my bench. Can field a decent 31 and 33 team but gonna take 2 or 3 hits. Not bothered about them though as appearances will cover ee them alone

            1] Depends how many other Wolves(or BlankGW) players you’re gonna hold, and ride the bench for the blanks...
            (Also, depends on who selling Jime for? Vardy=Yes)

            2] Really dig the Triple-Pool of Salah//TAA//Robbo
            (I own Alison instead of TAA, and just slightly worse)
            *As a LFC Supporter, I see Firmino taking back the Central Role that Mane has been enjoying of late ASAP... Plus, Mané is naturally very streaky; so see his pts run ending as well

            3] Fraser for me...

          Alisson
          Robbo - Yedlin - Chilwell
          FAnderson - Son - Salah - Pogba
          Rashford - Aguero - Jimenez

          Stek - Puncheon - Doherty - Bednarek

          Pog, Rash, Son, Jim > Maddison, Higuain, Brooks, Vardy too much for -8 ??

          Leaves me with good team for GW31 + 33 (Free Hit GW32) Then will probably WC GW34 or 35

            Nailed, near equal stats, lower ownership - get Brooks

          For those doing the FHgw32 strategy, whats the verdict on Doherty?

          - can sell him at 5m...but will i need him back in dgw32 (bur, MUN)..not a great dgw to be fair
          - but fixtures from gw34-37 look good.
          - dgw35 will have more appealing fixtures

          I am stuck between doing Digne >> TAA or Doherty >> TAA...i will have 11 players for gw31 eitherway. The benefit of doing doherty >> TAA is that i can bench schindler in gw31/33 but doherty could hurt in dgw32/35. I guess i could get jonny to cover him on FH32
