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.

        Any reason Mane is being ignored? Scored far more goals than Salah this year and has scored in a couple of away games already!

        1. FDMS All Starz

          If fit, definitely great options people are just getting distracted because city thrashed a hopeless Watford side

          Most started with Salah and he's been amazing as usual. More consistent. Assist potential. Penalties. Salah will come out on too so no need to sideways trade when there's beteer things to do. wc is a different story of course as it allows that small saving to spread efficiently but still Salah is ideal.

            Agreed, but it’s not just about outscoring... Salah has greater chances of assists with corners etc.

                No return from Captain for 4GWs running and not once is my captain the highest point getter in the team. I remember 2017 when I nailed most captaincy picks and finished inside 3k. Who would you captain this week?

                A) Sterling
                B) Son
                C) KDB
                D) Tammy
                E) Kane

                1. Super Saints
                  • 3 Years
                  6 months, 6 days ago

                  Last season my VC outscored my C nearly every week. I think the safest captain for a return or two is KDB.

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

                    I'd captain sterling and vc KDB

                  Safe pick for points would probably be KDB followed by Kane imo, Sterling could kill you if dead teams who had him captain last week haven't changed their sides, I'd go either KDB or Sterling, rest probably are the more explosive picks depending how punty you are

                    Inclined towards Kane atm, not too confident with Spurs' form though! Maybe this home game will bring the best out of them after getting knocked out of the Cup. Hope Kane+Son will explode like City players did after Norwich loss 😀

                  The one you obviously dont have and who the tops the current captain pool. Otherwise out of those i will give the arm brand to Kane - he hasn't exploaded for couple of games and i think it is his time

                  Do you have Soyuncu? He seems very en vogue and is only 0.1 more than Tomori.

                  1. King Holebas
                    • 4 Years
                    6 months, 6 days ago

                    Haven't looked much into Soyuncu but he looks a shout, Leicester much better then Chelsea down back? Only cleansheet came week 1 but could be a fixture thing I guess

                    1. Mingo
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                      6 months, 6 days ago

                      Both are pretty bad at the back to be honest, Leicester have the annoying habit of always conceding 1. However you can't expect too much from a 4.5 defender and if Chelsea or Leicester are going to keep clean sheets then it will be in this run of games. Soyuncu has Liverpool next week then it's smooth sailing until around GW15.

                      Also I feel that Soyuncu is a touch more nailed and a bit more experienced with first team football. Tomori could be taken out of the firing line if he makes mistakes and there is still Rudiger, who is probably their best defender. Maybe I'm over thinking it but Soyuncu shades it for me.

                      1. King Holebas
                        • 4 Years
                        6 months, 6 days ago

                        Brilliant insight, cheers for the feedback Mingo. You and the run of fixtures have talked me into Soyu now hahaha. Thanks

                        1. Mingo
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          6 months, 6 days ago

                          No problem. I have Soyuncu so maybe that's swaying my opinion on him, realistically they could be a coinflip though and neither are bad options as a rotating 3rd defender. I think I'm doing the Digne - Alonso punt this week so Tomori is definitely ruled out for me.

                    looks good. chelsea fixtures coming up should get a clean sheet or 2. think tomori will be 1st choice with rudiger, hes been immense

                      I did -8 so I'd say yes. If you think it improves you're team long term.

                      I would very rarely be tempted to take a hit for a defender. Maybe if yoi habe injury crisis and no banch or you are about to be priced out next week or you have a very long term vision (the last always goes wrong though 🙂

                    KDB, Son or Mane for the (c)?

                      Currently on Son but KDB is tempting

                      I have all 3 and currently:

                      Son (C)
                      KDB (vc)

                      Son out of those options home player

                      Mane for me. Don't think I'd struggle myself out of them options. KDB at home woukd change my mind. I'd like to own Son but we are a shambles at the moment so captaincy a risk too far at mo

                        That's the only thing putting me off Son. You have no idea what Spurs will turn up. Son tends to be feast or famine, 2 pointer or 12+. KdB will tick over and will average 5.5-6 PPG for most of the season.

                          Exactly. I'd captain Son when he's in middle of his scoring weekly form which will come at some point I have no doubt. It's a bit of a punt at moment. Don't like punting with the captaincy

                          1. Mingo
                            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                            I agree in principle. Auba is my planned captain for a number of the next few weeks now. However this could be the perfect week to punt as there are no really favourable fixtures for the big hitters (I'd captain Salah if I had him).

                        Trying to way up whether I should ship him for Abraham or not.

                          Abraham is a must over Barnes

                              Not choosing Abrahams for one game, I'm choosing him because upcoming Chelsea's fixtures are good.

                        I’d have moved last night it were free. But I’m not doing it as it would cost a hit and I think Barnes can match him over the next two.

                      Do u think guys that Zinchenko might start over Mendy against Everton?

                        I think he'll start, but its not based on anything, could easily be Mendy.

                        1. Would Ed Woodward

                          I think Zinch for this, Mendy home to Wolves.

                        I think Zinch for EVE Mensg in CL and then Zinch again vs WOL. I also have him and i will be playing him 🙂

                      Wow just seen Arsenal's fixtures after the UTD game on Monday

                      My transfer next week surely should be Kane to Auba? Or should Kun supersede both

                      Spurs have quite favourable fixtures too...

                          I'm not sure, the Arsenal fixtures really are promising. Maybe I should have Auba and then KDB & Sterling as City coverage instead of Kun

                      Those playing Greenwood - are you assuming Martial and Rashford are definitely out, or has OGS said he'd play?

                        Rashfords out. Martial will find out in press conference

                      2. Totti
                        • 3 Years
                        6 months, 6 days ago

                        i think martial will start upfront

                        I mean, I wouldn't even consider UTD atm

                          Well he is usually fodder but seems like a good punt this week and I already own obviously

                        I'm not convinced its worth it, how often have United scored more than one goal in a game, in recent times? Not many, there is a serious issue with creativity.

                          Yeah id get David Silva over Martial

                          Pogba is back, he can be that decisive factor in creativity (if he's in the mood)..

                          Pukki / Greenwood / Abraham

                          3.1 ITB

                          - Worried about no Aguero but would wreck whole team to put in
                          - Could Squeeze Kane/Aub/Firmino in instead of Pukki?

                              Undecisive really. Not sure if I want to stick Aub in next week or whether I want to go Kane this week, or just use for Firmino.

                            depends on who you have in defence and whether you're gonna be playing Rico much. If Rico is your 3rd defender, then probably A, if Rico is a benchfodder, then B imo.

                          Tempted to wildcard this week. Already made a -4 and think i can significantly improve my squad.

                          Aguero, Abraham, Pukki

                          With Maddison being flagged i am tempted to take a one week punt on Zaha.

                          Thoughts on team and punt?

                            I took a one week punt on Zaha last week didn't work out so he gets one more week 😀 . Tbh the team looks fine for this GW. Diop can come in if Maddison doesn't play. Postpone WC is my suggestion for now!

                          So this is where im at on my WC team:

                          Pope (Button)
                          Tomori, Ota, Diop, (Soy, Lundstram)
                          Sterling, KDB, Mount, Son, (Cantwell)
                          Pukki, Abraham, Firmino

                          1.7 ITB

                          Diop and Soy will rotate well, giving me home games against Newcastle, CP, Burnley, SHU and Newcastle again.

                          Chelsea have there best set of fixtures coming up over this half of the season. Son has 3 great fixtures ahead and is in good form.

                            don't playing with salah and mane is very hard mate
                            firmino isn't enough imo

                            may be sterling-> mane
                            firmino -> aguero

                            i think it'll leave you with 0 itb 🙂
                            may be exact money try it might work out

                          Wilder on injury news: "They should be alright from last night because nobody made a tackle! I think everybody is absolutely fine apart from David McGoldrick, who's very, very doubtful."

                          Was he being critical of his team using humor?

                            He usually is critical, has very high standards.

                            Looks good I do prefer the Aurier - Aguero combo though!

                            yes do it
                            ota-> aurier

                            Easy Salah to Mane Aub to Aguero

                            My starting 11 exactly except I have Kane over Auba.
                            Can we risk no sterling/aguero?

                          Not that I'm seriously considering buying, but is Chambers likely to become 1st team Arsenal?

                              Bellerin may even start ?

                            Don't think he's found best back 4 yet so would expect change. Holding & Tierney also looking for starts.

                            Either is a great pick IMHO.
