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.

    I've got

    Ryan
    Digne - Robertson - VVD - Zinchenko - Lundstram
    Salah - Sterling - Martial - Mount - Dendoncker
    Wilson - Pukki - Greenwood

    Got 0,4 in the bank, I can get by this gw without using a transfer and benching Martial for Pukki/Lundstram depanding on how you look at it. But I'm kinda loosing faith in waiting for Martial.

    So I've looked at a few options

    A: Martial, VVD > KDB, Soyuncu/Lowton
    B: Martial, Robertson > KDB, KWP/5,1
    C: Martial, Wilson > Auba, Cantwell

    What are your thougts, or do I just hold?

      Dont drop a pool defender this weekend. You could just move martial out with your free, sigurdsson maybe

      • 2 Years

      I would play 5-4-1 if i were you, Lundstram is playable and Pukki will be affected by the amount of injuries in NOR squad. I would not take out Wilson now, decent schedule. VVd out before New home is not advisable. To me martial has to go, but unless you can get Auba for Pukki then i would just leave it there. If you downgrade one of your prem def then playing 4 at the back with Dendwood is not balanced nor advisable. Either play Pukki or get someone in for Martial, Lanzini, Maddison etc. Therefore C is horrible, A and B leaves you with an unbalanced squad. If downgrading a prem def you need to upgrade one of Greenwood or Dendoncker. Martial/Robertson/Greenwood could be something like Maddison, Lowton/4.5 def/Haller in GW6, if you leave your tranny.

    Anyone know if Rico is likely to start for Bournemouth tomorrow with their injury crisis? Cheers

        I'm not really very in the know where Bournemouth are concerned, I just have a few injuries but reluctant to trade any out as I will want them back next week

        1. Recklesss
          • 4 Years

          The only have 4 non flagged defender and 2 of the have played 0 mins. Daniels is out so Rico should be given the opportunity.

        Ahh, would it be madness to take a hit to swap Rico to Lund? He would be a bench player after this week. Just don't want to swap injured players to swap them back if that makes sense?

        1. Recklesss
          • 4 Years

          Not worth it. Play 10 if you must.

              It's all good. GL this week.

              Just FYI. Reason I said it is, If you transfer in Lunds and he's always on your bench he'll never re-pay the hit. So he has this week to get a clean sheet, anything less and you're losing points.

                Completely makes sense, unlikely he will even get a CS this week too. Thanks for your advice.
                Emerson, Wan-Bissaka and Martial are my injury doubts but have Dendonker who will deffo start anyway.
                Thank you again

    I have decided...

    Pope
    TAA VVD Digne
    Salah KDB
    Aguero Pukki

    Baring injuries, these are the 8 player I am planning on sticking with right till the end.

    The other 3 spots in my starting 11, I will chop and change if need be with FT's according to form.

    Either Kun or Salah as captain is the only headache I will have each GW.

          Think Everton attack could be nice and he’s great value and one to hang onto. Even if Martial recovers for next week I’m not convinced I’ll be holding long. Pogba in retreat puts me off.

    Will Capt kun v norwich and Watford next week.

    Then move kun out for salah with 2ft for Sheffield utd game.

    Or too risky to go no pool attack for next 2 games?

    Any hope of Cantwell & Pukki seeing goals this weekend?

    1. Recklesss

      1 month, 7 days ago

      Most likely no

    2. Gudjohnsen
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Think they will get 1.

    3. AYLD28
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      I actually think Pukki might. Manager has come out and said they can’t physically park the bus so they have to go on the attack

      1. Recklesss
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        They can't attack if they don't have the ball and if they can't defend Pukki will have to run himself into the ground to get a sniff.

    4. diesel001
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Yes. City are only 10th best for xGC away from home, so they give up chances.

    5. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      First on bench Cantwell or Monty & play Pukki?

    6. VanDijksToWatchOutFor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Scored against Liverpool so it’s possible, just don't think they’ll see enough ball.

  12. AYLD28
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 7 days ago

    Do I?

    1. Bench Pukki and play double Sheff United defence
    2. Play Pukki and just play single sheff United defence

    Sheffield United defenders - Lundstram & O’Connell

    This is doing my head in. Captain?

    A. Salah
    B. Sterling

      It feels like Sterling has the highest ceiling but goodness knows it can easily be a trap with the rotation potential. Coin flip never fails half the time!

    Transfers made and ready to rock, besides bench order. Thoughts?

    Pope
    Alexander-Arnold Walker Digne Lundstram
    Sterling (C) KDB, Son, Mount, Cebellos
    Firmino

    4.0; Pukki, Montoya, Wickham

    Crazy to bench Pukki for Lundstram?

  17. MOZIL
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 7 days ago

    whos more likely to start? Lucas Moura or Lamela ?

    1. Recklesss
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Moura

  18. Atimis
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 7 days ago

    This week doing Martial to Lanzini, benching WB, playing Lund and (c) Salah.
    Next week should sort WB by doing WB to Ota.

    If Ceballos/Lanizini won't impress have enough $ to bring Mount after Chelsea play Liverpool.

    Sounds good ??

  19. Regin
    • 2 Years

    Play AWB or Maitland? Anybody think arsenal can get a cs against Watford?

    1. EMBOLOFAN

      awb

    2. nico05
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      No, play AWB

  20. BigBillyBass

    Why is Barnes still flagged?

    1. Recklesss
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Howe said he 'had a tight groin' it was past tense and said it was last week.

    2. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Because there has been no news since Dyche said he has a groin strain but will most likely be ready.

    6 mil for midfielder. Current midfield is:
    Sterling Salah De Bruyne Dendoncker.
    Any ideas who to bring in?

    1. JohnBlack
      • 1 Year

      Ceballos

      1. AC Yew

        Not really keen on owning an arsenal player

  23. Brosstan

    How can the scouts even afford that team?? Its way over 100m lol...

    1. Recklesss
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      These aren't 'scouts' trust.

    2. SADIO SANÉ

      don't think it is 😀

      1. Brosstan

        Its 106m... is this a joke from FFS?

        1. SADIO SANÉ
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          they don't count the subs, the first XI has to be under 82 or whatever

      a hit after a WC, no thanks.

  26. Prawnsandwich

    TC Aguero vs ramshackle NOR defence, who at the same time will be attack minded?

    DGW TCs have been a disappointment over last few years, risk of rotation, maybe one of the two fixture is against a difficult opponent...

    Aguero vs NOR is as likely as he is to be nailed this season, with Jesus likely to be starting on bench / eased back...risk of rotation increase from here on...

    And that NOR defence and attack mindset.....

    1. Regin
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Aguero tends to haul at home, not away.

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 7 days ago

      tc a player whos probably going to play 60mins away from home if you want

      1. stupendous
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Madness imo.

        I'd much rather TC Salah this weekend and that's not happening.

    3. The Albatross
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Could be genius, could be a disaster. At least in a double gameweek you have 2 bites at the cherry.

      1. The Albatross
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        If I had Aguero, I'd be tempted.

        1. Prawnsandwich
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Plus he's as inform and looking sharp as he's ever been...

    4. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Not mad at all imo

      1. Prawnsandwich
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 7 days ago

        At this stage of the season City still looking to steam roll teams.....later on they may manage games a bit more, more rotation, more managed minutes, like last year...

        And we're talking about a decimated NOR defence......

        Aguero could easily get close to 90 minutes, with Jesus to start mid-week....

        1. Prawnsandwich
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Oh yeah and his ownership is still only 25%

    6. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Salah gets a double gw somewhere around christmas, as WH game is postponed due to participation in world cup for teams in december. But it is tempting, i can see that.

      1. Prawnsandwich
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Thing is what will the other fixture be? Could be vs top six side....

        I get the two bites of the cherry thing alright, normally only TC in DGW, but that NOR cherry is a very nice cherry....haha
