The Scout Squad picks for FPL Gameweek 7

The Scout Squad team have submitted their selections ahead of Gameweek 7.

In this piece, our four regular panelists – editorial staff Paul, David and Neale plus community manager Geoff – each submit an 18-man squad of Fantasy assets (with the focus on the coming Gameweek) and elaborate on their notable inclusions/omissions.

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 £83m) for the weekly Scout Picks selection ahead of the Gameweek 7 deadline at 11:30 BST on Saturday.

There are requirements for at least one sub-£5.0m goalkeeper, at least one defender under £5.0m, at least one midfielder priced £7.0m or below and at least one forward priced at £7.0m or lower.

Each panelist is restricted to no more than three players from the same team.

We will also be adding a captaincy to the Scout Picks, with details of that revealed on Friday.

DAVID SAID…

The most likely team to keep a clean sheet in Gameweek 7 are Leicester in my opinion.

Newcastle have been very poor in front of goal recently, especially in away matches, so I’ve gone with both Kasper Schmeichel and Çaglar Söyüncü in my Scout Squad submission.

Against Chelsea, Trent Alexander-Arnold demonstrated once again why he is the best Liverpool option in defence and a trip to Sheffield United surely carries the potential for a double-figure haul again.

Cesar Azpilicueta is my chosen representative from the Chelsea defence. As Mr. Reliable in the Blues’ backline, he is top for key passes and joint-top for big chances created among colleagues in all positions over the last four Gameweeks.

Given Everton’s goal-scoring problems of late, the inclusion of nailed-on centre-back Nicolas Otamendi makes sense, while I fancy Serge Aurier to continue his attacking form against Southampton.

Mohamed Salah just about edges the best midfielder slot for me ahead of Gameweek 7 as I prefer his fixture to Raheem Sterling‘s.

Son Heung-min gets an inclusion against a dodgy Saints defence after registering three attacking returns in his last two appearances.

Both Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham have shown fine form in recent weeks and I’d expect them to continue that against a Brighton side that has generally struggled against Chelsea.

Meanwhile, in the probable absence of James Maddison, I’d expect Youri Tielemans to assume some of his creative responsibilities against Newcastle. While the Belgian has shot less often than Maddison in recent weeks, he is joint-top with the Englishman for key passes over the last four matches, ahead of him for big chances created during that period.

Sergio Aguero‘s form is too good to ignore going into Gameweek 7. The Manchester City forward is top of the league for shots, shots in the box and big chances across the last four matches and even if some think Everton will give him a hard time, and he has a poor record against them, it’s hard to see his output dropping this weekend.

Roberto Firmino and Sébastien Haller also make my selection up-front as they have displayed some promising underlying statistics in the Fantasy Football Scout Members Area in recent weeks.

NEALE SAID…

Sitting through the turgid goalless draw at St. James’ Park last Saturday stiffened my resolve to double up on Leicester’s backline this weekend, which I’ve done with Kasper Schmeichel and attack-minded full-back Ricardo Pereira.

The Foxes have the second-best xGC in the top flight this season, while Steve Bruce’s side have the worst xG – cue the inevitable Joelinton goal against the run of play.

I’ve doubled on Burnley’s defence, too, given that only Manchester United have allowed fewer big chances than the Clarets this season. With Villa having conceded the most opportunities from set plays in 2019/20, maybe James Tarkowski will finally come good on his goal threat; I can certainly see him and Ben Mee bullying Wesley out of the game at the other end.

Serge Aurier was second among FPL defenders for final third touches in Gameweek 6 and was desperately unfortunate to come away from Leicester with neither a clean sheet or a goal, so the visit of a Southampton side who have chronic problems at left-back gives the Ivorian a decent chance of banking returns at either end of the pitch.

I probably don’t need to discuss my attacking picks for Liverpool, Chelsea and Spurs at any great length given their respective fixtures but I’ve tried to curb the spending slightly by omitting Mohamed Salah, who will be up against a dogged Sheffield United defence that hasn’t conceded more than two goals in a league match this season.

Aside from the usual suspects, I’ve plumped for a man yet to deliver an attacking return in 2019/20: Wilfried Zaha.

The Ivorian looked a little more like his old self on Sunday and no FPL midfielder had more touches in the last third or registered more take-ons in Gameweek 6. With poor travellers (and defenders) Norwich in town, perhaps the goal-shy Eagles can finally give the Selhurst Park faithful something to shout about.

Watford’s defensive woes are well-documented but Wolves have also been uncharacteristically porous this season, so the goals should rain at Molineux.

Two players who haven’t been harmed by moves to the left flank in recent weeks represent my mid-price forward punts, with Gerard Deulofeu and Diogo Jota having looked more like their 2018/19 incarnations in Gameweeks 5 and 6 respectively.

The versatile Adama Traore has also made my picks and gives us a much-needed budget option should we need to free up cash.

Whether he’s at wing-back or on the right of a front three this weekend, he could make hay against the ageing Jose Holebas with his pace. His end product has been improving, too, with his four successful crosses at Selhurst Park only been bettered by Kevin De Bruyne in Gameweek 6.

PAUL SAID…

Liverpool, Man City, Spurs and Chelsea have favourable fixtures that could merit backing all four at both ends of the pitch in our Gameweek 7 picks.

As usual, I’ll focus on a handful of differentials for the weekend’s matches.

An injury to his rival, Emerson, should hand Marcos Alonso a third straight start as Chelsea welcome Brighton to Stamford Bridge.

The Spaniard ranks among the top three defenders for crosses (12) and chances created (four) in the last two rounds of matches, earning an assist over that period.

Up against an attack with two goals in the last five Gameweeks, Alonso –who is owned by just 2.3% – can serve a timely reminder of his potential as a big-hitter at the back.

Andriy Yarmolenko is another overlooked option as West Ham visit Bournemouth’s frail defence.

The Ukrainian has scored in two of the last three fixtures and has decent numbers since earning his first start of the season in Gameweek 3.

Yarmolenko’s six shots in the box rank second for the Hammers during that period, with only two FPL midfielders surpassing his five efforts on target.

Quique Sanchez Flores’ return to Watford looks to have revived the prospects of Gerard Deulofeu.

Sitting in just 2.1% of squads, the former Barcelona man is the top-ranked forward for shots on target (seven) and chances created (eight) in the last two Gameweeks.

After last weekend’s mauling at the Etihad, Deulofeu could be among the points away to Wolves.

His hosts have yet to keep a clean sheet at Molineux, shipping five against Chelsea in the previous fixture in front of their own supporters.

GEOFF SAID…

Playing in the lone Sunday kick-off, Kasper Schmeichel looks great value against a Newcastle side who showed very little in Gameweek 6 against Brighton. Huge Lloris will look to help Tottenham bounce back against a goal-shy Southampton side, while Tom Heaton is looking for a third straight home clean sheet.

After Trent Alexander-Arnold, I opt for the attacking threat of Marcos Alonso over Fikayo Tomori, and pick Çaglar Söyüncü over the more expensive Ricardo Pereira. I expect Serge Aurier to come back into the side after missing out in midweek. In Gameweek 6, Tyrone Mings showed Arsenal exactly the kind of central defender they need. He’ll relish the battle against the strong Burnley forwards and could come out with a strong score.

Mohamed Salah and Raheem Sterling top my midfield picks but, with attacking returns in three straight Son Heung-min runs them close for a Spurs side who need a result after a poor run. Mason Mount embarks on a strong run of fixtures in Gameweek 7. I go off the board slightly with my fifth pick with Wilfried Zaha. Without attacking returns this season, I expect him to open his account against a shaky Norwich defence.

Harry Kane leads my line against Southampton, who have only one clean sheet this season. Tammy Abraham completes my Chelsea triple-up, with seven goals in the last four and his only blank against Liverpool. I also look to Jamie Vardy who is averaging two attacking returns per game against teams that finished outside of last season’s top seven. Finally, while Teemu Pukki has blanked in two straight away games and Crystal Palace have strong home form, I expect Norwich to score and Pukki to put a halt to those trends.

The Community Champion

Representing the community against the Scout Picks in Gameweek 7 will be The Greenback Boogie, who is currently lurking just outside the top 20k in the world.

Last week, Irfansheikh beat the Scout Picks 89-72 with a 3-4-3 line-up of Dubravka (6); Aurier (1), Pieters (7), Willems (6); Salah (5), De Bruyne (c – 34), D Silva (11), McNeil (6); Aguero (9), Rashford (2), Abraham (2).

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.

Irfansheikh’s 17-point winning margin is now the target to beat.

      Need more context.

    2. FPL_WILDCARD
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Gonna be controversial and say Pukki out of that lot...

    3. King Kun Ta
      • 4 Years

      Mount

    4. Slitherene

      Mount out of that lot

    7. FOO FIGHTER
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Ota.

      Other 3 will get you far more points IMO.

    8. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      The other 11 picks? Surely you would take all 4?

      1. Nomar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        6 months, 12 days ago

        This is my thinking too.

    9. Hasselbaink Forever - UJFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Mount

    10. Donnie D
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Ota. Defence is getting very random points so far and all three offensive players are in form and much more consistent

    11. Regin
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      mount

  3. Slitherene
    • 2 Years
    6 months, 12 days ago

    Pope/Heaton
    VvD {4.5} Soyuncu
    Salah KdB Son Mount
    Callum Ayew Pukki
    Diop Digne Stephens

    1 FT, which 4.5 defender to get in?

    Tomori/Engels/Lowton or Save FT & play Diop?

    1. Stig
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Could also consider Holding?

      Returned from injury, great fixtures and makes their defence much better

      1. Slitherene
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 12 days ago

        Chambers played the last one, I don't really think Holding will be even nailed for the run in. And they play United away next. Goals galore!

    2. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      If in doubt go Burnley

      1. Slitherene
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 12 days ago

        If I may ask, why not Tomori?

        1. Kopkloppers
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          6 months, 12 days ago

          Clean sheets are important for defenders. Top 4 side at 4.5 and all run to him. Having said that, not a big risk. If Emerson fit I may consider due to attacking returns.

        2. Kopkloppers
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          6 months, 12 days ago

          Chelsea CB who is in for Christensen

  4. Daghe Munegu
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 12 days ago

    Pope
    TAA Otamendi Aurier Soy
    Salah Sterling Son KDB
    Abraham Ayew

    Button Greenwood Tomori Cantwell

    G2G or start Greenwood?

    1. Slitherene
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Playing Ayew ahead of Tomori, this GW?

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 12 days ago

        If you're not playing Ayew at home vs NOR with all the injuries they have, he shouldn't be in your team.

        1. Hakim Ziyech
          • 1 Year
          6 months, 12 days ago

          Zaha to cause further calf tear/ thigh ripped apart for norwich

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      That's a really strong bench. Greenwood should be last on it. Tomori > Cantwell > Greenwood.

      1. sunzip14
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 12 days ago

        This

    3. Devo-McDuff
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Need to put some more dosh into that attack fella.

      1. Daghe Munegu
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 12 days ago

        Only way would be to do Son Ayew to Wilson /Pukki mount

        1. Devo-McDuff
          • 1 Year
          6 months, 12 days ago

          I reckon there’s more points in that long term, wouldn’t take hit though.

    4. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Ayew still in you're team up.

  5. Soto Ayam
    6 months, 12 days ago

    For gw 7, who to bench?
    A}pukki
    B} cantwell

    ?

    1. Slitherene
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Cantwell

      1. Soto Ayam
        6 months, 12 days ago

        Cheers...seems the obvious bench warmer out of the 2

        1. Superkitten
          6 months, 12 days ago

          It's a no brainer that one

          1. Kopkloppers
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years

            Are people getting bored?

  6. waltzingmatildas
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    6 months, 12 days ago

    Do you think this team needs a wc? Was thinking gw 9 would be a better time.
    Pope Heaton
    Digne Robertson zinchenko Cathcart montoya
    Mane kdb maddison cantwell dendoncker
    Aubameyang pukki Barnes

    Could just do zinchenko to soy?
    And maybe maddison to mount for - 4

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      I'd say yes to a WC for that.

      Lots to fix. The longer you wait, the further behind you fall in points and value.

    2. Slitherene
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Zinchenko to Soyuncu, will get you through this GW.

    3. tankle
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 12 days ago

      zinch to ota?

    4. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Not worth wildcarding. I’d do one of the above suggestions. But if Soy, make sure one of your other defenders can cover the Liverpool game

  7. sunzip14
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 12 days ago

    Gtg? 0.6 itb. Who would you captain from this side? Inclined towards Kane atm.

    Heaton
    VVD, Diop, Tomori
    KDB, Son, Sterling, Mount, Zaha
    Tammy, Kane

    Button, Rico, Greenwood, Montoya

    1. Slitherene
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Could even consider Son & Tammy

      1. Superkitten
        6 months, 12 days ago

        Tammy (c)

    2. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Think I’d go Son

    3. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Sterling

  8. Gunner Boy
    • 5 Years
    6 months, 12 days ago

    On WC, really can’t take the decision

    Aguero or Sterling? Or just flip a coin?

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      6 months, 12 days ago

      If you on WC go Kun.

    2. Slitherene
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Sterling.
      Aguero might get reduced minutes, with Jesus lurking. Sterling mostly plays the 90, or he doesn't play at all.

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        6 months, 12 days ago

        Kun can score a hattie in 60 minutes.

        1. Slitherene
          • 2 Years
          6 months, 12 days ago

          Sterling can get the same returns in 90.

    3. ALegendJ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Sterling

    4. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Kun for me. If I was playing WC I would

    5. Donnie D
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Long term pick... Sterling

    6. SomeoneKnows
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      I went with Kun as it will allow be to bring in Aubameyang in a few weeks time with no hassle if I decide to 🙂

    7. Regin
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      kun

    8. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      No way if you're on a WC it's got to be sterling. Aguero more at risk of rotation now jesus is back.

  9. tankle

    6 months, 12 days ago

    Currently on this WC-draft which has too much money itb. Where would you upgrade?

    Pope (4.0)
    TAA – Ota* - Aurier* - Soy – Lund
    KdB – Son* - Zaha** - Mount – Cantwell
    Aguero* - Abraham – Pukki

    a) Ota, Zaha > Alonso, Dilva
    b) Aurier, Zaha, Aguero > Rico, Sterling, Firmino

  11. fc_skrald
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 12 days ago

    Correct formation for these boys?

    Heaton
    Aurier, Digne, TAA
    Salah, Sterling, KDB, Cantwell
    Abraham(C), Wilson (VC), Pukki

    4.0, Rico, Lundstram, Hayden

    1. sunzip14
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      I'd play Rico ahead of Digne or even Cantwell

    2. Slitherene
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Play Rico for Digne.

    3. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Rico over Digne for sure

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      B or C

      I’d be tempted to go B

    2. Slitherene
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      A, if you want to climb up the rankings.

    3. Superkitten

    1. Slitherene
      • 2 Years

  14. JJeyy
    • 4 Years

    A) Alonso and Aurier

    B) Trent and Guilbert

    Best option? (Lundstram on bench to rotate)

    1. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      B

      Neither of A appears to be nailed on.

    2. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      B but someone else over Guilbert

    3. Donnie D
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      B

  15. Tmel
    • 9 Years
    6 months, 12 days ago

    Start Greenwood (ARS) or Rico (WHU)?

    1. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      greenwood sounds fun

    2. Slitherene
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Economic

      1. Slitherene

        Fail, Rico!

    3. ALegendJ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Rico

    4. Nomar

      It's Rico time!!

    5. Donnie D
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Greenwood for me. Arsenal cannot buy CS and Greenwood will start with all the injury problems United have

  16. dbeck
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    6 months, 12 days ago

    g2g? not worth hitting out coleman, can hide on my bench and deal with next week. Rico over Cantwell?

    Pope
    Ota Robbo Soy
    Cantwell KDB Salah Sterling
    Tammy Pukki Haller

    Button Rico Dendonker Coleman

    Rob Holding @ 4.5 anyone? Will he claim a starting berth?

    1. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      even at 4.5, why would you want an Arsenal defender

    2. Slitherene
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      They play United next, better wait and see.

      1. bigbudgie

        yeah I meant from the week after, really

    3. ALegendJ

      No and No

      1. bigbudgie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 12 days ago

        No and you don't know, you mean, cause some Arsenal fans would disagree with you for a start

        1. Kopkloppers
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          6 months, 12 days ago

          You asked a question. If you know the answer why ask.
          Holding coming back from injury; a doubt in itself. A team who's defense is chronic.
          I won't reply in the future mate.

          1. bigbudgie
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            6 months, 12 days ago

            I asked the question because I think the answers debatable. And what you hope is that someone with a better knowledge of the Arsenal team will reply with a measured and logical answer. Yes, because....No, because...

            Whereas you just answered 'No'. More out of personal bias than any kind of knowledge.

            You see?

              You managed to work out that load of crap from No and No?
              The kids or the Missus upset you or something?

      Nice team but would prefer Wilson over haller.

      1. Donnie D
        • 10 Years
        6 months, 12 days ago

        I’m not sure that it’s worth a hit. Haller will definitely go in a week or two. Callum is one of possible replacements.

  19. Squeakybum99

    Tammy for C? 😉

        Saw after posting. I usually play percentages but considering it. Not sure I'll do it though.

        No. it is a computerized website where you enter you FPL ID and it works it out.

            Thanks Bud. A few have commented on its quality.

  21. Ribus

    On wc. What is the better combi long term:
    A) Cantwell & Rico
    B) Hayden & Soyuncu

    Will mostly bencht them.

    1. Donnie D
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Is Soy 4th or 5th defender? If 4th and you’ll rotate him, then B, otherwise A (Cantwell is a very good cheap mid but not necessary if you already have Pukki)

      1. Ribus
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 12 days ago

        Cantwell is the 5th mid. Thank you

        1. Ribus
          • 6 Years
          6 months, 12 days ago

          Soy 4th def

    2. Regin
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      a. exciting
      b. stable, but hayden unlikely to get more than 2 points

  22. Dannywaz
    • 1 Year
    6 months, 12 days ago

    Play tomori or Barnes

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Barnes

  23. Regin
    • 2 Years
    6 months, 12 days ago

    chances of zinchenko starting. Dont think a hit is worth bringing in Otamendi

  24. taylormccormack
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 12 days ago

    Vardy & Robertson

    OR

    Firmino & VVD

    1. Donnie D
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      A swings it for me because Vardy is on penalty and starts this gw with set of nice fixtures

  25. Ian Davis
    • 10 Years
    6 months, 12 days ago

    Aurier or Soyuncu?

    1. Donnie D
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Soy

    2. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Aurier for me. Soy will never get attacking returns

      1. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 12 days ago

        Problem is will Aurier get any returns when all are fit?

  26. HarryB29

    G2G?

    Pope
    TAA Otamendi Rico
    Salah(c) Mount Sterling KDB
    Barnes Abraham Pukki

    Button Cantwell Mings Lundstram

  27. Regin
    • 2 Years

    sterling owned by 40%. Aguero owned by almost 30%.
    But on this website, everyone seems to have Sterling. So I guess people here just follow a template that most others here use.
    I have hardly seen any teams with Aguero here.

      There are literally loads of RMT's with him in every day, there were a few on the last page.

    2. PlumaPiedra
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      I have had him and Sterling for weeks.

    1. Regin
      • 2 Years

      b of those. but I am confused between tammy, kun & salah

    2. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years

      I have C as cap and B as vc

  29. Miguel Sanchez

    Thoughts on captain here?

    Pope
    TAA Alonso Otamendi
    Sterling Son Mount James
    Aguero Abraham Pukki

    A) Aguero (eve)
    B) Son (SOT)
    C) Tammy (BHA)
    D) Sterling (eve)

    1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years

      Strangely Tammy looks a safe bet there. If in doubt I tend to revert to Salah - but if I had Son this would be one week where it seems like it could give you an edge. Can't see others going crazy.

    Currently playing Cantwell with Greenwood first bench. Stick or switch?

    1. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Cantwell, still don't see Greenwood starting.

    2. Donnie D
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      It risky but i would be tempted to switch

    3. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Stick.
