The Scout Squad for FPL Gameweek 38

The regular prelude to the Scout Picks article returns for one final time this season.

In this piece, our four panellists each submit an 18-man squad of Fantasy assets with the focus on the coming Gameweek.

The 72 nominations listed below will then be narrowed down to a squad of 14 (with the starting XI not exceeding a total cost of £83.5m) ahead of the Gameweek 38 deadline at 14:00 BST on Sunday afternoon.

Peter, Paul, Az and Neale (deputising for the recovering Joe) expand on their notable inclusions and omissions in the article below.

Az accidentally included four representatives of both Manchester clubs – the limit is three per team but we’ve let him off as it’s the final Gameweek of the season…

Paul said…

The race for the title will play a significant part in our final Scout Picks of the season.

Both Liverpool and Man City have the form that justifies investment at both ends of the pitch.

If Andrew Robertson is passed fit, I’d look to include him as part of a double-up on Liverpool’s full-backs against Wolves.

I’m also tipping the Fulham defence at home to Newcastle.

The Cottagers are no pushovers under Scott Parker and have three clean sheets in four, conceding a single goal.

Joe Bryan looks a decent prospect against the Magpies.

The left-back sits second for key passes (four) under Parker, while no team-mate has bettered his 12 successful tackles.

That all-round contribution helped him earn maximum FPL bonus in the goalless draw with Bournemouth in Gameweek 35.

Bryan has produced 23 of his 53 points this season in four appearances with Parker in charge.

A home encounter with relegated Huddersfield looks encouraging for Southampton.

James Ward-Prowse and Nathan Redmond were benched last weekend and I expect both to return to the teamsheet.

Of the two, I prefer Ward-Prowse. Granted, Redmond has the stronger underlying statistics in terms of goal threat but his team-mate has the output to back up his cut-price potential.

Costing just £5.0m, Ward-Prowse has produced at least nine FPL points in five of his nine home appearances under Ralph Hasenhuttl.

Up front, Chris Wood could bully the Arsenal backline at Turf Moor on Sunday.

The Burnley forward has three goals and three assists in six and his aerial threat will trouble Unai Emery’s men.

The Gunners have the league’s worst away record in terms of shut-outs, with a single clean sheet on their travels.

Wood, meanwhile, has the statistics to back up his recent run of points.

Over his last six matches, the Kiwi’s totals of seven big chances and four big chances created both rank among the top four players overall.

Neale said…

With Manchester City and Liverpool being the only two teams left with anything meaningful to play for in Gameweek 38, it theoretically makes sense to triple up on the title-chasing pair this Sunday.

As City have shown in recent weeks, however, the high-stakes nature of these games can sometimes lead to tighter affairs.

At least we can be fairly confident of starts for the likes of Sadio Mane, Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero et al – which is half the battle in May.

Nailing down where the goals will be scored in the end-of-season dead rubbers is tricky, not least because of the uncertainty over rotation.

That unpredictably causes me to overlook the likes of Angus Gunn, for example, following Fraser Forster’s start at West Ham.

Southampton representation is a must, though, and Nathan Redmond‘s impressive xGI (joint-eighth-best in the last six matches) gets him the nod over his attack-minded team-mates.

I realise that Maya Yoshida is currently red-flagged but, should he recover from illness, I’d like the Japanese centre-half to be our route into the Saints defence: Yoshida has recorded ten penalty box touches and six attempts on goal in his last four matches.

Should the budget Southampton stopper fail to recover, there are others in the same price bracket – Yan Valery/Jan Bednarek – who can deputise in our Scout Picks.

England’s two Europa League representatives are back in domestic action less than 72 hours after their respective semi-finals and there could be joy to be had by backing Burnley and Leicester assets this weekend, with Arsenal and Chelsea fairly dismal on their travels this calendar year.

No Premier League side has allowed more headed chances than Unai Emery’s troops over their last six matches, so the likes of Chris Wood and Ben Mee could have a field day against a suspect-looking Arsenal defence that has one away clean sheet all season and that is shipping headed goals for fun of late.

No defender has had more headed chances without scoring than Mee in 2018/19 but to my eyes, he has looked more of a threat than James Tarkowski of late and Sean Dyche seemed to hint that Mee would at least start on Sunday to keep up his ever-present record.

At the other end, the Clarets have allowed fewer big chances than any other club when Premier League sides are filtered by last six home matches.

My Digest article outlined Ryan Fraser’s credentials for this week but I’ve gone with half-namesake Ryan Babel as my fifth midfielder, given that I have already plumped for Callum Wilson (43 FPL points in his last four away starts) up front.

Babel has three goals and four assists in his last seven home appearances and has been presented with 11 big chances in his short time at Fulham – Mane is the only midfielder with more in the last 15 Gameweeks.

The Marko Arnautovic selection looks like knee-jerkery of the highest order given that his brace last weekend broke a four-month dry spell in front of goal but Watford have gone 11 matches without a clean sheet (no side is on a worse run) and may have one eye on their forthcoming FA Cup final.

I’d previously mentioned that I considered West Ham’s Gameweek 37 and 38 fixtures to be among the most attractive in the top flight and the Hammers have produced some excellent displays in recent weeks, even in their defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Az said…

So, the final week is upon us. Thirty-seven weeks have led to this moment and I for one have found this season the hardest of all. I’ve clawed my way back inside the top 100k; the hard part is going to be making sure I stay there.

Gameweek 38 looks pretty tough, with the entire league pretty much decided and all but Liverpool and City playing for pride or a slight increase in the league positions.

From those two teams, I reckon a City clean sheet and win is inevitable (sorry Liverpool fans) but can’t see a complete demolition job of Brighton. I actually think Liverpool are far more likely to rack up the goals at home to Wolves, who have now cemented seventh place in their outstanding season. Mohamed Salah looks the ideal captain this week – shame I don’t own him!

I normally favour teams at home on the last day of the season, as you would expect them to want to give the fans something to cheer for on the final day. That means backing for Southampton, Man United and Crystal Palace, with only the Eagles showing any real form lately.

Still, for some differentials, these would be the teams I’d be targeting. Nathan Redmond and Wilfried Zaha, in particular, look like they have potential to do well. I also like the look of Marko Arnautovic away at Watford, who will surely have one eye on their FA Cup final in a few weeks.

So that’s me for the season, I hope my ramblings on this each week have been useful. All the best for the final Gameweek!

Peter said…

2008: Middlesbrough 8-1 Manchester City
2013: WBA 5-5 Manchester United
2018: Spurs 5-4 Leicester City

Will 2019 also produce end-of-season fireworks to sweep rank outsiders to FPL mini-league glory and, if so, at which venue? And will a tight Golden Boot battle (with four or five players still in the race) play its part in the season finale?

Inevitably, the two title contenders lend three players each to my selections this week and I anticipate that I won’t be alone in choosing as my top choices in each position Aymeric Laporte, Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero for the Sky Blues and Trent Alexander-Arnold, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah for the Reds. That’s not to say I’m expecting the title deciders to be a walk in the park for either side – City, in particular, having ground out three one-goal victories from their last four matches – but you’d be brave to bet on Brighton or Wolves this week.

Thereafter, there’s plenty of room for some cheaper punts.

It’s the last chance to back against Huddersfield and Cardiff for at least a season as they visit St Mary’s and Old Trafford respectively.

Southampton have nine goals in their last four home matches (including games against Liverpool, Spurs and Wolves) compared to three from their last four road trips and Shane Long has found the net four times from just 385 minutes during that time.

I escaped without any cover from the Red Devils last week and it’s only my irrational fear that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will surely have them in better shape to see off the league’s third-worst team at home that justifies my selection of Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw.

After Manchester City (one goal conceded), Everton (two goals) and Spurs (three goals) have the meanest defences over the last six matches. Everton have failed to score in their last two away games, whilst a tired-looking Spurs have just one goal from their last two home fixtures. My expectation of a low scoring affair is reflected in the selections of Hugo Lloris and Lucas Digne, so cue that 5-5 thriller…

I’d love to give Ashley Barnes one final hurrah as he has served me well when needed this season, but his strike partner, Chris Wood, has far better form and stats with seven big chances to three from the last six matches and six attacking returns to two. Burnley’s visitors, Arsenal, have recorded only one away shut-out in the league this season and I don’t think they’ll make it two on Sunday.

In closing, good luck to everyone looking to secure their mini-leagues and more importantly my best wishes to Joe.

The Community Champion

Before most Gameweeks, we nominate a Fantasy manager to challenge our Scout Picks with a starting XI of their own.

The Community Champion who has the biggest 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).

In Gameweek 37, Greyhead narrowly lost out to our Scout Picks 46-45.

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

The Community Champion for Gameweek 38 will be announced in our Scout Picks article on Saturday.

    Who’s your captaincy currently on?

    Mine is on Sterling (2FT to use still mind so could change)

        1 month, 12 days ago

        Aye fantastic if fit

  5. Konstaapeli
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Why is Redmond so highly rated for this week? Is it just because it's HUD or is there something more to it?

    1. FPL Flop
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Looks their only attacker nailed on to start, in truth

      1. Konstaapeli
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Better choice than Babel?

        1. FPL Flop
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Toss up imo

      2. Tshelby
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Nailed to start? Didn't start last week?

        1. CostaCoffee
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          And they were shite, he’ll start for sure

      3. Feed tha Sheep
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Sure he only played 45min last GW?

  6. Christina.
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Digne creativity out of this world. better than Robertson and TAA.

    Only 6% ownership in top 10k.

    Wow.

    1. Tshelby
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Next season must have

      1. Geoff
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        * depending on price

    2. FPL Pillars
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Largely due to the fixtures late on and no DGW. If he has a DGW he would be owned by soo many more. I don’t think anyone would have anticipated that amount of CS for Everton. They’ve been immense.

    3. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      someone for next season

      1. tricpic
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Could do well this GW against a tired Spurs with minds elsewhere

    4. Lazaretti
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Maybe Baines getting one last game...?

  7. Tshelby
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Any suggestions here?

    2FT
    0.5 ITB

    Lloris, Foster
    Doherty, TAA, Valery, Kola, Duffy
    Deulofeu, Sterling, Jota, Salah, Son
    Long, Jimenez, Kun

    Thinking about Redmond, Wilson, Laporte, Zaha,.. as options

    1. tricpic
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      I’d lose Son but not sure who for (see mine below)

    2. Steiger
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Son>Mane
      Jota>Redmond/JWP
      or
      Jim>Wilson

  8. tricpic
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    What to do with this lot:
    Foster
    Doherty Laporte Trent Bednarek
    Salah Pogba Sterling Jota (Camarasa)
    Kun Jimi (Llorente)

    A) Jimi to Zaha
    B) Pogba to Fraser
    C) Pogba to Fraser and Llorente to Zaha
    Any other ideas?
    Thanks

    1. Tshelby
      • 4 Years

        Or jota to redmond?

        1. Tshelby
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Jimi to Zaha

          If you are keeping one for me it's Jota cause his stats are better in the last few games

  9. Ohh1454
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Which duo ?
    A. Mane and wood
    B. Pogba and vardy

    1. Limit80
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      A.

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      A

  10. Christina.
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Anyone selling Hazard?

    I'm tempted.

    1. Karan14
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      I would for Salah if you can afford.

      1. Christina.
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Would cost me a -4 for Salah.

        Someone like Pogba/Redmond would obv be for free.

        1. Karan14
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          You dont own Son, Robbo or Jimenez?
          Id probably look to sell them instead of Hazard.

          1. Christina.
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            I own Jimenez, and willing to take a -4..then I can bench him.

            I feel I need to go big on a possible upside.

            Lloris/Gunn
            Sterling Babel Redmnd Pogba Mane
            Kun Rashford

            -4

            Jimenez Brig x2

            1. Christina.
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 12 days ago

              haha...

              def is Laporte/TAA/Doherty

    2. Tshelby
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      For?

      1. Christina.
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        not sure. 1 week punt.

    3. FPL Pillars
      • 2 Years

      See how tonight goes ey

    4. FourLokoLeipzig
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Yep

  11. Karan14
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Lloris
    Robbo! - Shaw - Valery
    Sterling - Mane - Eriksen - Son!!
    Aguero - Jimenez - Ings

    (Ryan - Jota - Bednarek - Doherty)

    Thoughts on this lot?

    A) Robbo & Son to TAA & B.Silva
    B) Bednarek/Val & Son to Laporte & Redmond (Jimenez or Val/Bed or Robbo if not fit on the bench)
    C) Doherty & Son to TAA & B.Silva (Jimenez or Val/Bed or Robbo if not fit on the bench)

    Every chasing my in MLs have TAA or Laporte and some have both so my priority is getting one of them.

    Cheers! 🙂

    No love for Lucas? Seeing how Son is suspended and Llorente is a donkey, can't see how else Spurs are going to score.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      He will be exhausted, was running like nothing I have seen before in that second half.

  20. Pompel
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Haz to Salah for free an obvious move I guess.
    Anyone worth a hit to get for Son or Jiminez?
    Wilson, Arnie, Fraser, Tielemans?

  21. kuzser
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    What is the best strategy for a final gw if I'm 3 points behind my rival?
    1. get one of his key differentials
    1a. Son-> Pogba
    1b. Doherty-> Laporte
    1c. Son Jimmi-> Sterling Long for -4

    2. play my own game and hope for the best
    2a. Son->Bilva/bilva
    2b. Jimmi-> Zaha

    His team:

      Is any of these moves worth a -4? One point ahead in ML with just 4 players + captain differing

      A) Jimenez -> Auba
      B) Gray -> Vardy (bench Jimenez)
      C) Jota -> 10.4 mid

      Not too fond of playing two of Jimmy, Jota and Gray

        Sorry, should have been an own post not a reply. In your case: play your own game! i) because it's what you believe will get you the most points, ii) because it gives you more of a differential now that you are chasing! 2a for me

          thanks Hansel. Tbh looking at 2a or getting Laporte (like this move myself & matches rival).
          In your case, Mane for jota if you don't own him already. otherwise no obvious gains

    2. Pompel
      • 5 Years

      I'd do 2a. No point in trying to cover his players (e.g. Sterlling) for a hit.

        thanks. Personally like Laporte move and play 4 defs. not getting him on my wc wasn't wise

    Whod’d you play in goal:
    A) Lloris (EVE)
    or
    B) Foster (WHU)
    ??

    thx

    1. Pompel
      • 5 Years

      A. Should be a low scoring game

  23. Ragnar Lothbrok

    Is there any changes I should be making with this team? Definitely needs some improvement!

    Ryan (Button)

    Robbo / Laporte / AWB (Duffy/kolasinac)

    Mane / Salah / Eriksen / Bilva (Neves)

    Aguero / Jimi / Barnes

    UEFA’s schedule has really burnt Southgates side for the nations league.

    1. Jᴀʀᴠish
      • 4 Years

      PL finishes earlier than all the other top European leagues

        He's talking about the European finals

          One game which everyone will be well rested for. Obviously not ideal, but I'm not sure Uefa could have done their schedule any differently. There are probably as many players playing for the other countries as there are for England anyway!

      England can field better players than Henderson and Alli. LB/RB spots are well covered also.

    Mitrovic or Arnie for Firmino? Last week punt to try and win ML!

    1. Smurf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Arnie.

      I have to make a defensive transfer this week, but if I could bring in any player this week it would be Arnie.

    Have just enough to do Son to Salah for a hit, is it worth it if my main league rival 14 pts behind me has him and is his main differential? I already have mane. Thanks!

    1. Jᴀʀᴠish
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Probably

    2. FourLokoLeipzig

      Yep

      Could work out, though last GW I made a move to get kun for a hit to block my rival, when I could have gotten Laporte for free to block instead. Didn't work out as I hoped!!

    What to do here? 2FT's and 0.3ITB, currently at around 1k..

    Lloris - Foster
    TAA - Robbo - AWB - Laporte - Cathcart
    Salah - Pogba - Martial - Deulofeu - Jota
    Aguero - Wilson - Jimi

    Obvious transfer would be Martial I guess, but no idea who to bring in

    1. Smurf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Martial and Jimi to Moura and Zaha.

      Double up on Southampton assets if you can. It’s Huddersfield and Southampton are now a good acting side, also at home so will be looking to bang them in on the last day!

  28. SomeoneKnows

    Foster
    Laporte, TAA, Valery
    Sterling, Mane, xxx, JWP
    Aguero, Jimenez, xxx

    (Ryan, Jota, Doherty, Duffy)

    A) Salah + Long
    B) Fraser + Vardy
    C) Other

    1. Patrick.22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Definitely A!

      1. SomeoneKnows
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Even if it means making the transfers today and not waiting for the pressers?

  29. Patrick.22
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Guatia
    TAA/Laporte/Bednarek
    Salah/Mane/*Son/*Doucoure/Sterling
    Wilson/Rash

    Which option is best:
    A) Son>Pog Doucouré>Redmond (-4)
    B) Son>Bilva Doucouré>Redmond (-4)
    C) Son>Redmond

    No one else on my bench other than Schar that’s worth considering in my starting 11 but Newcastle don’t tend to be good away from home.

    Open to other suggestions? Currently only 11 points ahead in my ML and opponent has Aguero but no Salah

    Thank you!

    2. Smurf

      Wait until pressers but it’s looking that way.
