Scout Picks

Sterling and Aguero tipped for big scores by Gameweek 5 Scout Picks

We have spent the big bucks on our Manchester City attacking assets this week as they face a Norwich defence in dire straits.

This week the Scout Picks XI features three players priced over £12.0m but we have still managed to stick to our £83.0m budget.

Our 3-5-2 formation comes in at £82.9m, £0.1m inside the limit.

Goalkeeper

Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian has an appealing fixture this weekend

Adrian (£4.6m) was not selected by any of our Scout Squad pundits this week, but we’ve brought him in as an enabler. There was overwhelming support for a double-up on the Liverpool defence but we only had enough in our budget for one of their premium options. With Alisson still out injured, Adrian should keep his place in goal.

Defenders

Alexander-Arnold remains our chosen Liverpool defensive option ahead of Gameweek 5

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.1m) was the most popular Liverpool defender among our Scout Squad pundits. David, Paul and Geoff all selected him as the best option in this price bracket, Neale choosing him in second place. The right-back heads into an appealing meeting with a goal-shy Newcastle side and three assists in his first four matches. The potential for a double-figure haul, made up from returns at both ends of the pitch, continues to be high for Alexander-Arnold.

The inclusion of Matt Lowton (£4.5m) was a way of granting the request from our Scout Squad for Burnley defensive cover. Nick Pope was a popular choice but we had to go with Adrian in goal. Lowton comes in based on Burnley’s clean sheet potential for a trip to Brighton, and having created more chances than any of his defensive colleagues so far this season.

John Lundstram (£4.2m) continues to make a useful budget enabler for Fantasy managers. Sheffield United remain one of the tightest-looking defences in the Premier League, having allowed just 22 shots in the box across the first four Gameweeks (fifth-best). Meanwhile, Lundstram himself is behind only two players in the top flight for big chances created.

Midfielders

Sterling should enjoy his trip to Norwich on Saturday afternoon

Despite a blank against Brighton, Raheem Sterling (£12.3m) is straight back in the Scout Picks. After the first four matches of the season, the Manchester City midfielder is still just one behind the current Golden Boot front-runner with five goals and during that time, no player has been afforded more big chances. Meanwhile, Norwich’s defence looks in tatters for Gameweek 5. They have conceded more than any other side so far and are likely to be without at least three centre-backs in Ben Godfrey, Christoph Zimmermann and Timm Klose this weekend. Furthermore, right-back Max Aarons has been ruled out, Grant Hanley is unlikely to be able to feature from the beginning and Tim Krul is also a doubt to start now.

Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) was the most popular midfielder for Gameweek 5, tipped as the best in this position by three of our pundits, David selecting him in second place. In both of his Premier League matches at Anfield this season, the Egyptian registered a double-figure haul and he will be fancying his chances against Newcastle. The Magpies might have the ability to frustrate top six sides, as they did at Spurs in Gameweek 3, but Salah still got three attacking returns against them last season.

Mason Mount (£6.4m) is one of a handful of mid-price midfielders who appear to have the ability to offer decent value this season. He has two goals so far and could have arguably had more than that. Ahead of a trip to Wolves, the Chelsea midfielder has registered the same number of shots on target as Sterling, and more than any other option priced at £6.5m or below.

The absence of some key personnel for Manchester United should both help Daniel James‘ (£6.1m) chances of starting and increase the need for him to deliver. In the last two matches, the value midfield option has had seven shots inside the box, the second-most in the whole division. With Leicester yet to keep a clean sheet on the road so far this season, James looks a good bet for more attacking returns this weekend.

John McGinn (£5.6m) is the final member of our value midfield trio as he prepares to face West Ham on Monday night. With attacking returns in two matches so far this season, the box-to-box option will fancy his chances against a Hammers’ defence that has conceded more big chances than any other side so far.

Forwards

We’re backing Aguero to have another enjoyable afternoon in Gameweek 5

Our Scout Squad panel was unanimous in selecting Sergio Aguero (£12.1m) as the best forward option for Gameweek 5. That decision was reached even before the Norwich defensive situation got worse on Friday afternoon. The Argentinian has scored in every match this season, currently leading the Golden Boot race, and is likely to deliver even if he has his minutes managed in light of Gabriel Jesus’ return from fitness simply because Norwich’s problems at the back are so bad.

Sébastien Haller (£7.5m) completes our line-up ahead of a trip to face Aston Villa on Monday night. Dean Smith’s men have allowed more shots than any other side so far this year, while Haller has three goals in his last two matches.

Substitutes

Nick Pope (£4.6m) was the most popular budget goalkeeper in our Scout Squad submissions but we had to bench him to accommodate our Liverpool defensive double-up.

We were also able to work in some Manchester City defensive cover so Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.6m) has to be content among the substitutes. With Norwich unlikely to park the bus against them, there is perhaps still a slight chance that they find a way through.

Manuel Lanzini (£6.5m) gets a place on the bench as a cheap alternative West Ham’s centre-forward. The midfielder has created more chances than any of his colleagues so far this season.

Ashley Barnes (£6.7m) has impressed in the early part of the campaign but we ran out of money to get him in the Scout Picks starting XI. 

The Captain

As we have mentioned many times since the season began, the Scout Picks now has a captain for the 2019/20 campaign.

This skipper is chosen using the conclusions of the latest Captain Sensible article and a four-way vote between David, Neale, Paul and Geoff.

Because the use of Fantasy Football Scout data is used so heavily in this process, the captain we choose each Gameweek will be known only to those who have signed up to Membership for the 2019/20 season.

It will be revealed to the public only when the deadline for the Gameweek has passed.

The Community Champion

Representing the community against the Scout Picks in Gameweek 5 is Warby84.

They have gone for a 4-3-3 of Adrian; Alexander-Arnold, Otamendi, Maitland-Niles, Lundstram; De Bruyne, Salah (c), McGinn; Aguero, Haller, Vardy.

The community member who beats our picks by the biggest margin over the campaign will win a £100 Amazon Voucher and a place in our Contributors and Moderators League for the following season.

It was a defeat for the Scout Picks in Gameweek 4 as InsaneFC won by a 75-64 scoreline.

That makes his winning margin of 11 points the new score to beat for the 2019/20 season.

    Is it nuts to do Pukki to Haller this week for a hit?

      It would be nuts any week mate, Pukki will get most of Norwich's goals and they are quite attacking. Even when they are losing games he will still be getting goals. I would find another way to get haller in.

      Utd are decimated and spurs next week aren’t in great shape defensively so I’m leaning towards vardy

      1. DR0GBA
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 10 days ago

        I really like the Vardy option but it's a hard decision when there is Haller who is cheaper and could do just as well... same dilemma for me

            do you think I should stick with that team or just get Salah now?

            I could also get Vardy in for Haller with the above team but no option to get Salah without 3 or so transfers

            1. baggs
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years

              Good for this week but not having mane or salah long term might hurt.
              Kelly’s no longer a starter

    2. DENZ

      Silva much higher quality, but are you planning on using that city slot for anyone else?

    5. Warby84

      Maddison

  6. JackQualt

    Wanting to do King -> Haller, prefer him to Barnes and Abraham.
    But it needs removing Maguire -> Lowton and -4.
    King could drop tonight, is it worth it? Or slow play it and take just Maguire out this week?

    1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Could be worth it.

    2. baggs

      Just do Maguire

    TAA Pieters Montoya Lundstrum

    Start 2 from:

      B c

      Once city get 4 I could see Norwich getting a consolation

  9. AandyzZ
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 10 days ago

    Worth taking a -4 to get aguero(C) in?

    Would be Salah to Mane and Barnes to Aguero

    1. AandyzZ
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Son to a 4.5 mid to make the funds

    2. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Could be, but you know Salah could easily get a haul.

    Currently having massive fomo over not having KDB for an absolutely destroyed a Norwich team. Should I take a hit by removing martial & robbo for kdb and pieters/zouma - this would mean benching pukki, who currently starts. An alternative would be to switch Martial to D Silva as a short term solution, who you d expect to start after having not been involved in International duty, Right? I'm thinking this could be a wise move that prevents a bit and offers more cover, especially as KDBs minutes are likely to be managed for the CL midweek. Thoughts? cheers

    1. Warby84
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      I wouldn’t remove Robbo..

    2. baggs
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      I don’t like Silva and I see KDB as a season keeper

      Dilva ticks a lot of sensible boxes here.

  11. Tsparkes10

    What do we prefer? Have VVD and want to replace Wesley next week.

    A) TAA and 6.9m
    B) Sokratis and 9.1m
    C) Ota and 8.7m

    1. Slouch87 Nirvana Scott Tale…

      A by a mile.

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 10 days ago

        Just want the security of being able to get in haller or Vardy next gw for Wesley. But plenty of options I guess. May even want to keep Wesley

        1. Slouch87 Nirvana Scott Tale…
          • 4 Years

          Barnes ?

    Any changes?

    Adrian-(4.0)
    Ota-Taa-Lund (Lowton) (4.0)
    Sterling-Mane-McGinnn-Cellabos (Cantwell)
    Haller-Aguero-Tammy

    Thanks guys!

      Like it a lot! not to keen on Ceballos and you’ll need to think about Adrian replacement soon when Allison bk (Pope good shout)

      1. Talkaboutluck
        4 months, 10 days ago

        Thanks man.

        Any timeframe on how long more Adrian would be out? Was considering between
        (A) Adrian + Burnley Def
        (B) Pope + 4.7m Def
        Seems like (A) might have higher point ceiling in the near frame. Definitely need a replacement strategy eventually.

        1. Talkaboutluck

    GTG on WC?

    Adrian
    TAA Digne Otamendi Lundstram
    Salah​(vc) Pepe DSilva
    Aguero​(C) Haller Barnes

    Button Guendouzi Cantwell Rico

    1. acesingh

      Nice....

    2. jr3jonny
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Decent side but even as an Arsenal fan I'd ditch Pepe for KDB. Maybe downgrade Silva to Mount perhaops?

  14. acesingh
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 10 days ago

    On a WC... 1.5m itb .. what would you upgrade? I’m thinking matip->Robbo

    Pope, 4.0
    TAA, Digne, Otamendi, Matip, Lund
    Salah, Sterling, KDB, (Cantwell, 4.5)
    Haller, Pukki, 4.5

    1. DR0GBA
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      don't play 5atb on WC

    2. jr3jonny
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Would try and downgrade Matip to upgrade 4.5 / Cantwell.

    3. DENZ
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Cantwell > Mount

    4. Rage Against The Raheem
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 10 days ago

      I would turn Matip into a 4.5/6 like Söyüncü and upgrade Cantwell to someone like mcginn/james/mount myself.

  15. DENZ
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 10 days ago

    A Kane owner should keep or switch to Aguero? (have Sterling)

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Free --> (K)un, for me.

    2. Rage Against The Raheem
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 10 days ago

      I would deffo do that if it is not for a hit

      1. DENZ
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 10 days ago

        For a hit unfortunately!

        1. Rage Against The Raheem
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 10 days ago

          I would leave it then, Kane still could do well and you would start the week -4 for a player that is still capable of getting big points.

    Jimenez
    C Wilson
    Pukki

    1. Rage Against The Raheem

      4 months, 10 days ago

      Pukki after this game week

  17. jr3jonny
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 10 days ago

    Been away 2 weeks but feel like Lanzini + Kane ---> KDB + Haller/Barnes (-4) would be best here?

    Pope
    VVD | Digne | Zinchenko | Montoya
    Salah (c) | Sterling | Mount | Lanzini
    Pukki | Kane

    Button | Greenwood | Rico | Drinkwater [1FT + 0.9m itb]

    1. abaalan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Dont think its worth a -4. Lanzini should do well coming weeks and Kane is Kane ( but underrstand desire to get KDB in).

      Think I would save also - and get the 2 fts next week, kane could haul against Palace, and lanzini looks good as well... saying that obvs both KDB and Haller are both great options as well!

  18. AVFCChris1984

    Best DEF under 5.3?

    I'm thinking either Tarkowski or pieters

    1. BrockLanders
      • 4 Years

      Like Pieters

      If for Burnley cover - Lowton seems to have better attacking stats than Pieters. Slightly cheaper too. Then again... I could be wrong.

    On wildcard:

    A) Haller + 1.4m
    B) Vardy

    The extra money will be kept ITB just in case I need to get in Salah (have triple City attack)

    1. jr3jonny
      • 7 Years

      Prefer Haller and cash mediun term.

      James, Abraham, Pieters, Matip, Lundstram, Dinge accoridng to FFFix

      Martial

  21. SADIO SANÉ

    Play Ayew or do Martial -> D.Silva -4? I did want to keep Martial long term

    1. Rage Against The Raheem
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 10 days ago

      If you want to keep him, I would just play Ayew. I wouldn't be shocked if Palace scored against Spurs tbh.

      1. SADIO SANÉ
        • 4 Years

        Ta, think I'm set - not expecting much this week

  22. abaalan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 10 days ago

    Any last opinions before i go to bed..
    A) Trossard + Kane -> D. Silva + Haller (+2.3M)

    Then allows me to do Wickham -> Barnes next week

    B) Or just do: Trossard + Kane -> KDB + Haller

    C) Keep Kane. Do Trossard -> Lanzini

      I would say option number one is to get the wife primed.

  23. Hansel

    With price no longer a factor:

    A) Lanzini
    B) Anderson

    1. BrockLanders
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      A for me

    2. abaalan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      b

    3. Pep Roulette
      • 2 Years

      Lanzini

    4. baggs
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Neither

    5. Rage Against The Raheem
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 10 days ago

      A, looks in good form and means you have money to spend elsewhere when needed.

    6. JamieNumber4
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Really don’t like either but B I suppose

    TAA Digne AWB* Otamendi Lundstram
    Salah Sterling KDB
    Barnes Pukki

    2. jason_ni
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      No way is that worth a WC.

      You have TAA - Digne - Otamendi - Lundstrom - Salah - Sterling - KDB - Pukki who are going to be the basis for most wcs going on.
      Save your wc.

    Last min suggestions on WC?

    Pope / Fodder
    TAA / Digne / Alderweiled / (Lundstrom / Rico)
    Sterling / KDB / James / Cebellos ( Cantwell)
    Aguero / Haller / Pukki

    Plan is to capt kun next 2 gws, save FT in 6, them move kun and cantwell out to get Salah back in gw 7 for sheffield away.

    1. jr3jonny
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Well planned out if Pool do the job for you in the interim. Risky, but could prove to be very, very green.

  27. La Roja

    What to do here chaps?

    Pope
    Digne VvD Zinchenko Lundstram
    Salah KDB Mount Perez
    Pukki Aguero

    4.0 AWB* Dendoncker Wickham*

    1.5m ITB and 1FT

    A) Perez ➡ Ceballos
    B) Perez ➡ Yarmolenko/Iwobi
    C) Perez AWB ➡ TAA Yarmolenko/Iwobi -4
    D) Perez AWB ➡ Richarlison AMN/Dunk -4

    1. jr3jonny

      Looks solid to me, sir. Why Sterling (C) over Salah (C) out of curiosity?

      Mind looking at mine a bit above?

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 10 days ago

        Cheers. Lundstram, Pepe over TAA, Ceballos is really tempting. Just feel Sterling will bang if he starts and if not can't see him coming on. Also prefer their opponents

  30. nico05
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    4 months, 10 days ago

    Hi could anybody give me any advice please, I currently have Emerson, Martial & Wan-Bissaka (all injury doubts). With no free transfers and a bench of Dendonker Rico Surridge would it be foolish to not take a hit to transfer them out? Cheers

    1. nico05
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 10 days ago

      I would be looking to get them back which is why I’m considering leaving them

      1. jr3jonny
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 10 days ago

        Think a -4 in this situation is worth it for the security. Emerson probably a good one to go as can't see a CS in the next 2.

        1. nico05
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 10 days ago

          I agree with the CS point. Martial the most unlikely to play though from what I’ve read on the three. Would that sway you at all?

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Wildcard.

        Wildcard seems a waste lol

        1. Dthinger
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 10 days ago

          Free Hit? If you want them back later anyway...

          1. nico05
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            4 months, 10 days ago

            Not a bad shout, would they be tactically better used later though?

            1. Dthinger
              • 2 Years
              4 months, 10 days ago

              I don't really think there is a best time to use the Free Hit chip. Sometimes it makes the most sense to use it when there are a lot of blanks but we usually know about them so far in advance that you can plan ahead for them.

    3. Dthinger
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      I'm really curious how you found yourself in this pickle. Martial has been flagged for a long time, and lots of us said he wouldn't be fit for this week. Why didn't you save your transfer til hearing more on his fitness? I'm not trying to be critical, just trying to understand your logic.

      1. nico05
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 10 days ago

        I decided to leave him as I was hoping he would be fit after the international break. I’ve recently had Laporte and Shaw injuries so had to ship them out also

        1. Dthinger
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 10 days ago

          I see. Having Shaw and Martial, brittle as they are, was always going to put you at risk.
