Tips

The Complete Guide to Scout’s tips and advice for FPL Gameweek 8

With the next international break breathing down our necks, be sure to savour the thrills, heartache, jam, and (fingers crossed) joy that Gameweek 8 will undoubtedly provide.

As ever, Fantasy Football Scout is here to help you separate fact from rumour, stat from gobbledegook, and Pep from his roulette wheel. Well, ok separating Pep from his roulette wheel is probably surgically impossible, but two out of three ain’t bad. And, just for the heck of it, we’ll even explain what a “compound differential” is. Oh yes.

Talking points

The main headline this week has undoubtedly been the injury to Kevin De Bruyne. Guardiola confirmed on Friday that the brilliant Belgian will miss Gameweek 8

No, tomorrow [De Bruyne] is not fit. After the international break, he will be ready. It’s not a big, big problem.

Over half a million managers have wasted no time in ditching De Bruyne with Mount, Yarmolenko, and Mahrez (more on him later), the popular replacements. 

For other more patient souls – willing to trust Pep when he says the midfield maestro will return for Gameweek 9 – this will mean a substitute taking his place in their fantasy teams. 

If you’ve got options like John Lundstram (£4.5m) or Todd Cantwell (£5.0m) on your bench, hold on to Kevin.

The FPL General

However, as Neale reported in his team news round-up, some may have reason to worry. Speaking on Friday, Norwich City boss Daniel Farke reported a problem with 27%-owned Todd Cantwell:

There is a little doubt, a little question mark behind Todd Cantwell. He’s got some hamstring problems. He was out Wednesday and Thursday, returned back today on the training pitch, it looked alright. We have to wait a bit, how his body reacts. I hope to have him available for tomorrow.

For the low-down on all the treatment room latest, we not only have Neale’s quote-filled articles, but Rotation’s Alter Ego has kindly summarised the key points for each team. Could Allison be about to make his return this weekend?

Who to trust with the armband?

Raheem Sterling leads the captain poll with 25.8% of the vote, ahead of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mohamed Salah, and Sergio Aguero. Without an overwhelming favourite to stick the armband on, FPL managers face another tricky decision. 

The underlying statistics once again point to the potential of Manchester City assets ahead of their home encounter with Wolverhampton Wanderers, as David highlighted on the Captaincy Video

Only three teams have conceded more shots in the box [than Wolves], and no team has had more shots in the box than Manchester City.

Digging a little deeper – using data available to FFS Members – TheFantasyFreÆK focused on Wolves’ defensive problems this campaign:

… the stark contrast I notice in Wolves 19/20 v Wolves 18/19 from a defensive point of view is very worrying. Wolves have conceded triple the number of big chances this season than they did at this stage last season (12 v 4), hence their xGC (expected goals conceded) has nearly doubled (5.5 to 10). Shots in the box conceded have also witnessed an alarming rise of 46%.

The problem is knowing which City player to trust. 

In Gameweek 7, many FPL pundits and experts felt Aguero would definitely start following his midweek rest. They were wrong. This week it’s Raheem Sterling’s turn to be the favoured captain pick.

Sterling has scored in his last three matches in all competitions and emerged from the bench in the Champions League on Tuesday night to inspire City to victory. The 24-year-old will lead the FPL General’s troops on Sunday. 

However, one manager who won’t be giving Sterling the armband is Career Hall of Fame number one Sean Tobin. Sean, as Greyhead informed us in the latest installment of The Great and The Good, omitted Sterling from his Gameweek 7 Wildcard. Instead he’s chosen to go with Aguero and Salah as his only players costing over £11.0m.

Backing up Sean’s decision to favour Aguero, David observed in his Captain Sensible article:

Once again, we come into a Gameweek with Aguero as the busiest attacking player in the penalty box over the previous four matches. He has shot 17 times there from Gameweek 4 onwards, more than any other player in their last four outings.

While The FPL General feels that we shouldn’t be put off by Salah’s upcoming fixtures:

On paper, Liverpool have a tricky run of games but is it really that difficult? It’s Leicester at home this weekend (Salah’s lowest score at Anfield this season is nine points), then a trip to face mid-table side Manchester United before a home tie against a Spurs outfit who conceded seven goals to Bayern Munich this week.

Second in the captain poll, Aubameyang is attracting interest and it’s easy to understand why. Brandon pointed out in FPL Question Time:

With no blanks through the first seven weeks of the season, Aubameyang is indeed the real deal.

Discussing the Gabonese international in the Captaincy Video, Joe enthused:

It’s a six-point floor!… At the Emirates Bournemouth have conceded eleven goals and scored just three over their last three league visits, and Aubameyang has scored in his last two encounters against the Cherries.

High-end Purchases on a Limited Budget

The challenge facing many FPL managers is deciding which of the £11.0m+ players to own, with many offering the promise of points. Three premium-priced assets make this week’s Scout Picks: Salah, Sterling, and Aubameyang.

To help ease the pressure on our limited budgets players such as McGinn, Pukki, and Abraham – as well as a shift towards cheap defenders – are proving popular. All three offer the promise of goals this weekend.

In his analysis of the underlying stats, Neale revealed that Abraham had been presented with nine big chances in the last four Gameweeks:

Abraham had four of those gilt-edged opportunities in the last two Gameweeks, so he has still been getting into dangerous positions despite recording back-to-back blanks.

And goals are expected when Norwich City host Aston Villa later today:

486 shots conceded by Arsenal (126), Aston Villa (121), Norwich City (121) and Bournemouth (118) combined this season. Those four clubs have allowed the most attempts on goal in the Premier League this season and play each other this weekend, with Norwich entertaining Aston Villa and Arsenal hosting the Cherries.

Compound Differential

The form of Riyad Mahrez has been discussed this week. The injury to Kevin De Bruyne and a potential ban for Bernardo Silva increasing his appeal.

Neale goes into impressive depth exploring not only how well Mahrez has performed this season, but also his potential for minutes. While the Algerian does not have the luxury of guaranteed game-time, Neale observed:

If we are to accept the occasional rest for [Sterling, Aguero, and De Bruyne], then why not the more affordable Mahrez?

The most transferred-in player ahead of the Gameweek 8 deadline and with an ownership fast approaching 10%, Mahrez just about squeezes into the differential category

But it’s as a “compound differential” that he could really make a difference. Appearing on the Scoutcast this week Tom, from Who Got The Assist?, explained:

Where I think Mahrez is really interesting is that because he’s a compound differential, so it’s not really a differential in and of itself, it’s a differential because you’re pairing him with other players and making a unique combination, which is a little bit different to everybody else.

Tom went on to point out that selecting a triple City midfield of Sterling, De Bruyne, and Mahrez is pretty maverick: that combination is owned by just 0.04% of managers.

Even selecting City’s three most highly-owned players – Sterling, De Bruyne, and Aguero – each owned by over 29% of managers, as a combination is only selected by 2.3%

In Case You Missed It

There was another take on the De Bruyne injury / Mahrez appeal, tuvok thinks that perhaps De Bruyne’s absence could have a negative impact on Mahrez.

Elsewhere, Sebastes asked can Spurs bounce back? And Meltens kindly previewed Gameweek 27 (only four Gameweeks to go!) in Fantasy Allsvenskan.

    He's due a blank.
    But seriously, yes- everything is in his favour. The only thing stopping me owning him is that is losing Aguero to get him and I'm scared that any day now Aguero is going to hit a double hat trick.

    chances of KDB dropping in price tonight? Need him to drop in order to be able to get him back

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Long way to go after this GW

      1. V-2 Schneiderlin
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        I assume lots will transfer out this morning though?

        1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          I guess so but their could be manipulation like incase of Martial

    2. Tamagotchi Massacre
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      If he doesn't drop tonight, he probably won't

      And nobody knows if he'll drop.

      Worst case scenario is he actually rises before next GW

      And boy would that be funny

      1. V-2 Schneiderlin
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Hmm trying to decide on whether to switch him out and then back.. my bench sucks

    3. Klein
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Should have dropped today. Was on -113% i think. But somebody on fpl tower decided not to sell him.

    4. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      I imagine he will drop once during the IB.

      1. V-2 Schneiderlin
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        that's what I'm thinking

        1. Tamagotchi Massacre
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Just don't sell him. Traditional wisdom is team value < points, but that's about team value locked into players you own, basically. Selling KdB is just selling a player you WILL just have to buy back at a higher cost, and at the expense of a minimum of 2FTs. That's not just losing 'theoretical' overall value, that's buying a player that everyone will own at a cost of maybe 0.1 or 0.2 more than 50% of managers. And that is significant

          1. V-2 Schneiderlin
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

            True very good point - the 2FTs have value in the game too. For me the Cantwell news is affecting the decision as it's potentially 2 of my best players out - now think I'll use the FT on another aspect of my squad and bench KDB - thanks

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        But people will be buying him back!

  7. Holmes (specialist in failu…
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Crazy to start Nakamba over Periera?

    Not expecting LEI to keep CS, might as well take a risk with Nakamba vs NOR?

    1. Klein
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      There is a nakamba in the game?

      1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        😀

  8. Rinseboy
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    is the scout picks curse a real thing. Has anyone ever tracked the scout picks over a season to see how they do?!

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Probably a myth

    2. mookie
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      People only remember when they do badly.
      Last week my 7 who were in the picks scored 28 points(35 with captaincy).

    3. Ginkapo FPL
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      The Scout Picks beat the community picks mostly

    4. V-2 Schneiderlin
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      I'd say they must do pretty well - it's like a free hit chip every week

  9. GoonerByron
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Feel like I’ve got my bench wrong here, just worried Ceballos won’t start after playing 90 in the Europa League? Any thoughts?

      Yarmo

    2. CostaCoffee

      Yarmolenko 100%

    3. BadgersBoys
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Great, thanks.

    4. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Yarmolenko has more points, but Anderson's underlying stats (xG + xA) are better.

      1. BadgersBoys
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Yes, see that. This had swayed me towards Anderson initially. Thanks mate.

    Third week in a row captaining Aguero! GTG?

    Pope

    A: Save FT. Start Cantwell + Tomori with Rico/KdB sub

    B: Mahrez + Mount (-4) with cantwell and Tomori as subs

    C: Mahrez + Cantwell with Tomori sub

    1. Tamagotchi Massacre
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Save

    2. Genji3lade
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Similar spot, would say A seeing as Mahrez could easily be benched

    3. unitednations
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Thanks guys! Still unsure but will likely save

  15. lankdog
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Got 2 FTs and no glaring problems with my team apart from KdB and potentially Cantwell being out. Which of these one week punts is worth it, if any?
    A) KdB > Mahrez
    B) KdB > Pepe
    C) Cantwell > Sako
    They would all require 2 transfers next week however to get them back in as I’ve got £0.0 ITB
    Team is
    Pope
    Digne Tomori Lund
    Sterling Son Mount Cantwell
    Auba Pukki Abraham

    Button KdB Rico Soyuncu

    1. Tamagotchi Massacre

      Don't sell KdB.

      1. lankdog
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Yh kinda realised that problem as I was writing the comment ahaha. Feel bad wasting a transfer but playing Cantwell is probably the best bet

        1. Tamagotchi Massacre
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Yes. Don't get caught in the trap of thinking you need the best team your transfers could possibly buy every week. 2FT in the int break is a beautiful scenario

          If really worried then look until options like guendouzi or jorgino who are fit, nailed and getting returns

  16. fridge

    Worried about getting 11 out with KDB, Aurier, Maitland Niles, Zinchenko, Cantwell .. anything worth a hit?

    B) KDP + KWP -> Mahrez + Ota

  24. Cookie Kid

    Start one:

    A) Cantwell AVL
    B) Tomori sou

    1. Klein
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      A

  25. FOO FIGHTER
    2 months, 11 days ago

    I reckon the time has come to have at least one decent attacking option on the bench. Imo Cantwell needs to be moved on, not worth haning only for home games.

    Someone like Trossard once he is fit as first sub will illiminate having to use up FT's and take hits should any of your starting mids get niggling injuries. Obviously will depend on the severity of the injury but at least you will be able to sub in a differential like Trossard? Even Djenepo would be a good option.

      Trossard is currently a downgrade based on injury record/information about whether he is nailed/price/value etc

    Million dollar question: Aguero to Aubameyang?

      If you not going to cap Auba then no point. Not worth a hit. If you doing it for free then better hope Kun does not start and explodes.

        Yeah that's the point, both have wonderful fixtures but it's that rotation threat...

      Yeeeees that's what am thinking about

      I've done it. Hayden to Saka and benched Kevin

        Likewise

    Start tomori or Cantwell this gw? How likely is cantwell to come off the bench for a 1 pointer

      This isn’t based on anything, but I think he either starts or doesn’t play at all

    2. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      If he’s on the bench, he’s fit to play. Which means he’ll start.

    Worried Aguero not starting. Aguero and Salah to Auba and Sterling for -4? It feels right and it feels wrong.

    1. Klein
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Feels more right to me.

    2. OptimusBlack
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Yes do it

    3. Genji3lade
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 11 days ago

      I would just do Salah to Sterling for free. Kun could get a hatty if he starts - i'm captaining him

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        2 months, 11 days ago

        Yeah, but have 3 city, Kun, Ota and de Bruyne
