Scout Squad

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.

          A could be anywhere between 2-20 points but B feels like a steady 8 points.

              Yep
              I'm chasing so I'd go for A.

              A - stick with your plan if you feel Redmond will haul. I'm getting cold feet as I have the Robbo injury to deal with otherwise I would have no hesitation to bring him in.

              1. Amey
                  1 month, 7 days ago

                  Thank you mate 🙂
                  I really think Redmond can haul because of all circumstances.

              2. Ivor Mac
                  1 month, 7 days ago

                  Vardy and Fraser and captain Vardy

                  1. Amey
                      1 month, 7 days ago

                      Thank you.
                      Vardy © + Fraser is also a Differential.

                  2. Kanchelskis
                    • 1 Year
                    1 month, 7 days ago

                    A. You'll kick yourself if you change your mind and it pays off.

                    1. Amey
                        1 month, 7 days ago

                        That is for sure.
                        Thank you mate, appreciated 🙂

                      I also have cold feet on Redmond (C), but will probably power through. Alternative is Salah (C) but that'll take 2 transfers and I already have Redmond.

                      I think A and B are still your best options.

                      1. Amey
                          1 month, 7 days ago

                          Thank you mate 🙂
                          Who do you like between Vardy Mane ??

                          1. Dr. Mantis Toboggan
                            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                            1 month, 7 days ago

                            Probably Mane, but obviously Vardy is much more of a differential if that's what you want.

                            1. Amey
                                1 month, 7 days ago

                                I was keen on Vardy but since ucl match i think Mane is a better option 😮
                                Vardy form is insane though. Tough choice

                                1. pingissimus
                                    1 month, 7 days ago

                                    I know I sold you Vardy in first place but I’d go with Mane.

                                    Form and fixtures are pretty even but I think Pool will still be feeding on adrenaline- good for attack less good for defence. Goals ahoy.

                                        It feels right to get Mane as I'm taking risk in ©

                                  Wilson away + Mane home © looks safest option of them all.

                                  Anyone whats going on with Angus Gunn?

                                  Did he lose his spot? - hoping he returns this weekend or I will have to take a hit

                                    Ralph H said he wanted to play Forster to see what he could offer to the team essentially.
                                    Hopefully a 3-0 drubbing is enough, and Gunn will be restored, although we don't know.

                                      Foster was bad last gw as per people here. So you may be lucky 🙂

                                      Any chance McCarthy gets a game just to add another name in there?

                                      Hasenhuttl made 4 changes for the West Ham game and they pretty much all backfired.
                                      Forster made some bad mistakes but also some decent saves, Gunn is definitely no. 1 though.
                                      Hasenhuttl probably made those changes to help him decide whether to keep or offload the fringe players during the Summer.
                                      The question is whether is he saw enough in 1 game to decide or whether he'll give them another chance, however positions in the league change prizemoney so putting out a weakened team could cost his team a couple of positions.
                                      Gut says he'll go back to full strength. Does your sub goalie play? Gunn only likely to get 2 or 3 points anyway.

                                        my sub keeper is Patricio , so im guessing he'll get 0 points againts lfc.

                                        Im leading my league by 12 points and dont want to take a -4 hit.

                                        Have to replace son and I may just take a chance with Gunn

                                    Which would you prefer pending injury updates please? I'm only 5 points behind ML leader.

                                    A) Son > Fraser or Redmond (bench Robbo)
                                    B) Gray > Rondon (bench Robbo)
                                    C) Anything else

                                      A. Redmond "should" do better.

                                    Mata for a final day punt?

                                      Possibly, could be his last game for United.
                                      Wait for the press conference though. I think there's a real chance of a Rashford, Chong, Greenwood front three.

                                        Yeah in 2012/13, when he got 212 pts from 11 goals and 18 assists.

                                      I am considering Greenwood. Anybody remember James Wilson?

                                              Greenwood and Chong for a hit sound reasonable?

                                    Any chance of Sane starting?

                                    Chasing a 20pt gap and need a big differential. Already have Kun and Sterling.

                                    1. Miguel Sanchez
                                      • 2 Years

                                      Too risky I think.

                                        My opponent has Kun, Bilva and Laporte so no point in blocking when I'm chasing that's why I thought all or nothing Sane.

                                        1. Miguel Sanchez

                                          Get Salah and captain.

                                            I got Salah to his Mane. I think he'll Captain Kun.

                                              Brooks to Redmond and Boly to Kompany work for you?

                                              1. FlockofSeagulls

                                                Redmond or Ings was definitely one of my transfers in.

                                                You think Kompany is worth the free transfer given my opponent has Laporte? No real gains to be made there I wouldn't think

                                                  Yeah but it covers the almost inevitable City clean sheet for you and Kompany could pop up with a headed goal.

                                                    Yeah fair point.
                                                    So hard, lol. I was 10pts in front before last gws disaster.

                                      Not worth risk IMO

                                      I'd be really surprised if Sane starts, expecting Bernardo, Aguero and Sterling across the front.

                                      For a punt Deulo - he is very all or nothing.

                                        I wouldn't chance Watford players in last game before cup final.

                                          Probably Arnautovic out of those options, although West Ham don't score many away from home, I think its 5 in their last 10 or something like that.

                                          Deulfoeu could easily be benched, and I find it hard to back Everton forwards when they're playing the fourth best home defence in the league.

                                              Zaha has scored 1 goal at home this season, which rules him out for me.

                                          He's injured isnt he?

                                            It looked light hoping he'll shake it off

                                                          I think his stats are pretty good, but they have been for years now.

                                                            Yes
                                                            He only has stats though 😀
                                                            Poor finishing.

                                                            Yeah, sure to be a few Southampton goals and quite likely he's involved in one or two. However it could be like Spurs game v Hudd, with one player dominating and the main contenders getting only 1 assist.

                                                            Always gets himself into good positions, but his finishing lets him down. This is where the eye test is so important. However, he's just picked up the fans' and players' player of the season awards which will give him confidence.

                                                              Any view on whether or not Valery could be dropped following his mistake in the last match ? I've been looking on the net for info but can't see anything, I'm considering getting him this week.

                                                              Long is also an interesting one should I decide to sell one of Jim or Gray this week, I'd imagine he will start ahead of Ings given current form. Already own Redmond but like the fixture.

                                                                  My main worry with Southampton is rotation and experimentation this weekend. Redmond played central midfield alongside JWP in the second half of the Bournemouth game, can see Hasenhüttl shaking things up and trying new ideas again.

                                                            Start Hjojberg or do Jiménez to Rashford for -4?

                                                              Yeah, I think Hojbjerg, Jota and Jimenez are all likely 2 pointers this week so worth a hit

                                                              I'd start Hojbjerg, don't trust Rashford at all.

                                                              Got two FT and gonna drop Son and Jimenez or Jota.
                                                              Feels like Jota/Jimenez is kind of equal pick, the question is what is the best option with this budget to transfer in.

                                                              So Jota and Son for two midfielder budget 16,2 and who?

                                                              Or Jimenez and Son for an attacker and a midfielder 16,6 and who?

                                                                                            Thoughts ??

I'm tempted to bring in Wilson and Fraser, they've played so well all season that a final double digit haul from at least one of them seems only appropriate.

                                                                                                  Wilson & Fraser for a final g/w punt?
