Scout Notes

Mane carries strong FPL form onto the international stage

Our very first Scout Notes article of the November international break deals with the matches contested on Wednesday and the early part of Thursday.

We’ll be bringing you regular round-ups from across the globe over the coming week, detailing the minutes played and any injuries picked up.

A club-by-club list of the Fantasy Premier League assets on duty with their respective countries is available here.

Senegal 2-0 Congo

  • Cheikhou Kouyate (£4.9m) – 90 minutes
  • Sadio Mane (£12.1m) – 84 minutes
  • Ismaila Sarr (£6.2m) – 56 minutes

Sadio Mane (£12.1m) supplied the assist for Senegal’s second goal as they cruised to a 2-0 win over Congo in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Wednesday.

Mane’s cross from the left was headed in by Habib Diallo as the hosts established a two-goal lead before half an hour had even been played.

The Liverpool winger was evidently enjoying himself as the gulf in class became apparent, with the premium FPL midfielder earning the usual rave reviews for his display.

On what was a suspect-looking surface, Mane (who cursed the turf after whistling one shot over the bar) appeared to have emerged from the encounter unscathed when being replaced on 84 minutes.

Ismaila Sarr (£6.2m) was not quite so lucky, reportedly picking up an ankle injury just after the interval and having to be substituted soon after.

The Watford winger has just returned from a hamstring injury that had limited his involvement at club level over the past month.

Crystal Palace’s Cheikhou Kouyate (£4.9m) played the full game in defence, as he often does for his country.

Mane and Senegal are next in action on Sunday against Eswatini.

Lebanon 0-0 South Korea

  • Son Heung-min (£9.6m) – 90 minutes

The 7.5% of FPL managers who own Son Heung-min (£9.6m) will have been relieved to see the Spurs midfielder come through the first of two games that he is scheduled to play over the November international break.

Son lasted the full 90 minutes in Beirut as South Korea kept up their unbeaten record in the World Cup 2022 qualification campaign, although the premium Fantasy asset and his country drew a blank for the second successive game as they were held to another goalless draw.

Son was reportedly kept quiet by the hosts and their defender Alex Melki.

South Korea next face Brazil in an international friendly in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday afternoon, giving Son just under four days to get back to the UK ahead of Spurs’ match against West Ham United in the Saturday lunchtime kick-off.

Nigeria 2-1 Benin

  • Wilfred Ndidi (£5.0m) – 90 minutes
  • Alex Iwobi (£5.7m) – 90 minutes

Nigeria came from behind to get their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualification campaign off to a winning start.

Alex Iwobi (£5.7m) lasted the full 90 minutes in the number ten role he has occasionally occupied for Everton this season, with Leicester City’s Wilfred Ndidi (£5.0m) also completing the game further back in central midfield.

The Super Eagles next face Lesotho in another AFCON qualifier on Sunday.

Egypt 1-1 Kenya

  • Trezeguet (£5.2m) – 90 minutes
  • Victor Wanyama (£4.8m) – 90 minutes

As we mentioned previously, Mohamed Salah‘s (£12.3m) niggling ankle problem has seen him ruled out of Egypt’s two fixtures over the next week.

The premium midfielder had travelled to Africa for a consultation with the national team doctor and head coach but was subsequently excused from international duty.

Salah had been pictured with ice on his ankle after the Gameweek 12 win over Manchester City and was spotted wearing a protective boot when joining up with his country on Tuesday.

In the Liverpool winger’s absence, Egypt drew 1-1 with Kenya in their opening Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match.

Aston Villa winger Trezeguet (£5.2m) came close to scoring a winner but saw an 82nd-minute shot cleared off the line.

Both he and Victor Wanyama (£4.8m) lasted the full 90 minutes.

Jordan 0-1 Australia

  • Mathew Ryan (£4.7m) – 90 minutes
  • Aaron Mooy (£4.8m) – 90 minutes

The leading points-scorer among FPL goalkeepers had to be at his best to preserve Australia’s narrow lead in their 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier in Amman.

Mathew Ryan (£4.7m), who has four clean sheets, 11 save points and 11 bonus points to his name in FPL this season, produced an excellent low stop to keep out Hamza Al-Dardour’s header late on.

Ryan repelled another strike in stoppage time as Australia moved five points clear at the top of their group.

Aaron Mooy (£4.8m) also completed the game for the visitors, sending a free-kick off-target and seeing a shot deflected wide in the first half.

That was the Socceroos’ one and only fixture of the international break so the two Brighton teammates will now return to England in plenty of time for Gameweek 13.

Kyrgyzstan 0-2 Japan

  • Maya Yoshida (£4.4m) – 90 minutes

Maya Yoshida (£4.4m), who lost his place in the Southampton starting XI following a dismal display in the 9-0 loss to Leicester City, had an altogether more enjoyable evening in Bishkek on Thursday.

The Saints stopper earned his 100th cap for his national side in Japan’s 2-0 World Cup qualifying win over Kyrgyzstan, completing the full 90 minutes.

Round-up

Bukayo Saka (£4.5m) claimed an assist in a 4-0 win over Luxembourg in the first of three matches that England under-19s will contest over the international break.

The 1.0%-owned Arsenal winger, whose run of six Premier League appearances was ended in Gameweek 12, lasted the first 71 minutes before being replaced by Everton’s Anthony Gordon (£4.5m).

Norwich City striker Adam Idah (£4.5m) played the first 86 minutes and set up the winner as the Republic of Ireland under-21s beat their Armenian counterparts 1-0.


We’ll round up the rest of Thursday’s matches in our next Scout Notes article tomorrow.

    5. KINGS
        1 month, 10 hours ago

        I would just bench Mount this GW. Field him for the next two good fixtures

      • Yoshioka
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 6 hours ago

        Yeah, good moves

      Going to get rid of one of my City mids. Would you get rid of Sterling or KDB?

      I feel KDB is the one to keep but I hate having too much money in the bank.. just a psychological thing?

      1. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 11 hours ago

        I’d prob keep both for Chelsea despite the return of Kante

        Got rid of sterling pre Liverpool tho since he enabled more upgrades

      2. baggs
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 10 hours ago

        i switched sterling to mane and kept kdb mainly because ive had him from the start so he cost me 9.5

    7. Schliegs
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 hours ago

      Have exact coin to do Salah + CHO > Mane + Tielemans for a -4, thoughts?

      Not usually a fan of early transfers or hits but i've dropped from 30k > 200k in the last 4 weeks and have tried to stay patient but both of these guys could be looking at limited minutes over the coming weeks, would like some opinions.

      1. Patrick.22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 11 hours ago

        Looks good. Just pray for no injuries

      2. fgdu
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 11 hours ago

        id do it mate, i think cho should get shipped. id probs just do cho -> tielemans if you can, you could use the -4 better elsewhere

        1. Schliegs
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 11 hours ago

          need the extra 0.2m sadly

          1. Schliegs
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 11 hours ago

            Other option is Montoya > Janmaat or Tomori > Baldock

      3. baggs

                1 month, 11 hours ago

                Agreed like the look of him, shame. Thanks for your response

            • AuFeld
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 10 hours ago

              Young only had a one match ban. I expect AWB and Young to be the starting wing-backs.

          2. Rhodes your boat
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 11 hours ago

            For those looking at d.henderson in a couple as a replacement for pope are you happy with a double up with Lundy on a regular basis?

            1. AuFeld
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 10 hours ago

              I'd be happy to be in a position where I feel comfortable to use a FT on a GK.

                1 month, 11 hours ago

                Thanks. 7.3m so short of Maddison or Pulisic but Tielemans best option I think- and bench Mount I guess

                1. Rhodes your boat
                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 11 hours ago

                Thanks. Yes can do that - if confirmed fit

              Diop > Robbo, unless you’re considering KDB > Salah as your triple up?

              That's a team I would leave as-is going into the next GW. Rico plays as Sub 1 if there's an injury then. That's not to say that there's not an upgrade available to you, but what you have there is 'fine'. Cantwell I'd probably move on for Tielemans possibly. If you absolutely can't stand keeping a FT saved.

              1. dunas_dog

                1 month, 10 hours ago

                Cheers- an extra transfer in week 15 would be helpful

          4. PepSala
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 11 hours ago

            Brought Robbo in right after the city game and now he will probably be out...rookie move

            1. AuFeld
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 10 hours ago

              I think you'll be fine. His ankle injury could just be precautionary to avoid any game time over the IB.

            2. Ógie
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 10 hours ago

              Kneejerking seldom goes well and in a week with European or International games it can leave one up sh!t creek without a paddle.

              Always best sleep on a transfer idea for a few days if possible as things nearly always look a bit different as the next deadline approaches.

            Auba Auba Auba .... what a hucking feadache

            expensive, totally off form but fantastic fixtures

            what to do....

            1. AuFeld
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 10 hours ago

              You keep him just for those matches.

            2. Grievez
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 10 hours ago

              Surely you've kept him for his "brilliant fixtures" long enough?

                • 9 Years

                yeah watched him blank 4/5 including at home to palace and bmth.

                1. AuFeld
                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 10 hours ago

                  Who would you replace him with?

                    if i downgrade to mousset or even greenwood i get 10m+

                    that allows me to upgrade cantwell to a leicester mid and my 4.4 def to robertson

            3. Nuno
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 10 hours ago

              Tempted to bring him in on WC for those fixtures

          6. Grievez
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 10 hours ago

            If Bilva put up a picture of KDB with the Milky Bar Kid, would he have been banned, fined and forced to go to classes?

            1. Az
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 10 hours ago

              No, because the Milky Bar Kid doesn't have a long history of racist caricature.

              This really isn't too difficult to understand.

              1. FPL Virgin
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 10 hours ago

                I'm not condoning Bilva, but why did Mendy and Sterling come out and say it wasn't racist? That's what I don't get.

                1. baggs
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  1 month, 10 hours ago

                  theres a gazillion factors in play. one of those is team unity as they strive to win trophies. sterling and mendy dont want a twitter storm impacting the team so its in their interests to play it down irrespective to whether theyre offended or not.

              2. Grievez
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 10 hours ago

                How do you know that?

            2. baggs
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 10 hours ago

              would mendy do it is more the question.

              its dumb to think that a cross race caricature, particularly black caricaturing, on twitter will be taken in good faith so why do it?

            3. Brosstan
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 10 hours ago

              No because twitter "racism" (its laughable to call something racist while simultaneously claiming there was no racist intent) is all about being offended and liberals are only offended on the behalf of minorities.

            4. LikeItLoveIt
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 10 hours ago

              I can't understand why the club's who pay massive wages don't vet every social media post the players create!? Everytime you want to write a post it goes to a dedicated person at the club to make sure your not saying something stupid or that could be perceived as offensive. Easy

              1. Grievez
                • 8 Years

            Sterling & Connolly to Maddison & Rashford?

              Not for me, at least not this GW. I'm hoping Connolly is a reasonable emergency 3rd bench player for the festive schedule.

            Has hudson odoi done enough to justify his place in the senior England team?

            Coming back from injury, 2 starts this season, last 3 had minimal minutes of the bench, is it no longer a requirement to be playing regular club football to earn a call up?

            1. DNFPL
                1 month, 10 hours ago

                John Stones is another.

                Don’t think Hudson-Odoi has been in poor form though just Pulisic better.

              Utd's most expensive FPL player only 8.6mil.

              Must be an all time FPL low?

                and theyre not even particularly good value compared to the bargain basement chelsea players, or at least at the start of the season

                Absolutely. My question is Sterling -- Salah for free if passed fit?

                  Nah. Salah just isn’t right IMO. I’ve debated this for a long time. Trent and Robbo can match him if not beat him. For half the price

                    Disagree, think Mo is ready to surprise us all now, plus pool not keeping many cleanies. Would rather double pool in attack which is what i've done, but just preference really.

                  Yes- nice team- personally would captain Vardy, particularly with Dunk out of next game

                      Thanks mate. Vardy is one to consider but Brighton solid defensively at home and will have to sit back against Leicester something that isn’t suit Vardy.

                    Vardy / Abraham ( Connolly )

                    I’m then thinking Ryan>Hendo next week for a double pool and double Sheff defence..

                          Pretty strong. Only downside is if you need to upgrade a player.

                        As a Trent owner, would you rather have Robbo or Chilwell?

                          if not intending to double up in pool attack, then Robbo, if you are, then Chillwell.

                          Robbo

                          I’ve got all three and thought I was being really clever until I realised I now have a Lundstram bench problem

                          I’d get Chilwell if you are doubling up on Liverpool mids, otherwise Robbo

                            As a Robbo owner from the start of the season Trent has been more attacking than him but has just been little unlucky and there is still only 5 points diff between them with TAA at 7.2 so if you have any one just hold on to them no need to shuffle and go for other when one has little dry spell

                          Lack of class booing Joe Gomez from the England fans. I'm not from England so I have no idea how things work out, you agree it wasn't necessary ?

                            stupid. they booed sterling at the start of a world cup game because of his form. result first, politics second.

                            There is a large scum element that follows England. I’ve only ever been to one game and the atmosphere was toxic. Ironically it was against Poland at Old Trafford and they booed Crouch when he came on for no reason other than that they didn’t think he was good enough.

                              Same here, one at Wembley circa 2000, one at Old Trafford about 13 years ago (if memory serves). At both games (including the latter which was a thrashing so you'd think the mood would be joyous) the atmosphere could only be described as grim. No intention to go again any time soon.

                          I’ve got Kane. Money no issue. Outside of Vardy, would you change him to anyone?

                            Yes. Anyone. Just anyone. Poor form individually, poor form for the team, huge allocation of resources, and the terrible temptation to captain him. Anyone from Aguero to Firmino to Jiménez or Abraham.

                            No, change him to Vardy.

                            take a punt on auba for his fixtures (although its a real punt at this stage given his form)
                            move to tammy vardy
                            or downgrade to mousset or even greenwood and use the cash elsewhere. could get son for "cover" if you want that.

                              Hi guys. I can’t decide who to captain for the life of me next week. 3 choices. Vardy (bha) Aubameyang (SOT) or Sterling (CHE).

                              I’m sure Vardy will get something. Quite fancy him up against that defence with Dunk out and has served me well last few weeks but Auba could run riot unless Soton park the bus and could be more of a differential pick then people realise. Sure he’s due a double digit haul soon and has some juicy fixtures despite Arsenal being out of form. Any advice guys ?

                              City v Chelsea could be end to end stuff and sterling could run riot too.

                              Any views or help appreciated guys ?

                                I had a little look at the stats yesterday and IMO -among my players- the best captains this week in rank order are:
                                1. Mane
                                2. Sterling
                                3. Vardy

                                I originally had it on Vardy but currently have it on Raheem for a slight differential (I expect the other two to be more popular picks).

                                1. BitTight

                                  Where would you rank auba if you had him. RMT says captain him. I don’t have Mané. That’s my next move. Sterling does well in the bigger games though and can him counter attackimg at pace as Chelsea will go there and take risks and want to win which will work in sterling’s favour

                                    I avoid Arsenal like the plague so haven't really been paying attention to them the last few games. But I think if you have him you've probably got to captain him with that fixture.

                                      Yeah, if I had him and Mane I'd captain Mane.

                                      Fair comments although palace are notoriously hard to score against at home.

                                        From what I gather from the stats, it seems Palace have been extremely fortunate to concede as few goals as they have at home, they are close to the bottom of a few of the shots allowed categories.

                                          The three teams who have failed to score against Palace at home were Everton & Villa early on (and both teams had very average starts to the season) and Norwich. Leicester and City both cruised 0-2.

                            I have Soy & Tielemans. I think Chilwell is a little too expensive considering the wealth of budget options performing well. Tiele vs Maddy is a toss up as long as you use the money saved with Tiele wisely.

                            Who is Baluta? I'd replace him with Janmaat to give yourself a deeper bench. Connolly is fine for 3rd bench.

                                And a decent defender at that. Really hope he gets his chance with BHA at some point this season. Big fan when he was at Vitorul, man skipped U21 and went straight senior.

                            Looks good to me. I sold Kdb last week for Maddison. Might bite me back but I still have sterling like you. I would sell kdb and punt on martial or Pulisic ....... or even son / Rashford / auba / jimi

                            Good luck. Great rank.

                              Cheers bro, been a great season for me so far. Very pleased, and not to brag would have been higher if I went with Vardy initially on WC.

                              I am looking into getting someone from United in. Good fixtures, gives my squad variety.

                                Agreed. I’ve got martial and enjoy having him (when he actually plays) could have had a load more points against Brighton too. Him and Rashford work well together. Quite tempted to get double up with rash but got Vardy
                                Auba and Tammy and cant bring myself to get rid of any of them at mo. Waiting for an excuse tho lol.

                                Good luck with your choices.

                            Sterling to Mane but it can wait until next GW, I expect them to get a similar score.

                            Mings to TAA is the obvious one, rest of team is fine.

                              Didn't notice to had 3.2 itb. Mings to TAA much better idea

                            McGinn to Martial if you don't mind a mild benching headache for a few weeks.Although I think its a few weeks early for Martial.

                            VVD to Robbo or TAA

                            Mings to Pereira if you fancy a double up. Guess you could just go Soy if wanted to do that though.

                              Will keep Mcginn….fixtures ok after GW15 and had him from the start.

                              Will do VVD to TAA but already have Vardy, Tielemans and Schmeichel.

                                My bad Tube, didn't see the 3 Foxes.

                                Yeah, VVD to TAA is good. Leaves 2.4 ITB to still play around with.

                          Got triple man city and no Leicester is a differential now

                          GTG here?

                          Pope - (Button)
                          Soy - Rico - Aurier - (Lund - Tomori)
                          Salah - KDB - Mount - Martial - (Guendouzi)
                          Vardy(c) - Kane - Tammy

                          1 FT & 0.9 ITB

                          Cheers!

                            I'd play Lund over Aurier. Nobody ever has any idea which Spurs will turn up & they're shaky at the back at the best of times.

                              True but West Ham are poo.

                              Maybe Lund over Rico? Man U on the up?

                                That seems sensible, Rico is my 1st bench this week, Wolves have found form.

                              & Man U are well, Man U.

                              1. Phil's Stamps

                                2 wins in six games, and those coming against appalling Norwich and Brighton at home and suddenly Man U attackers are hot property.

                                It boggles the mind.

                            Looks fine.
                            I'm going to (C) Salah only because CP have been giving up tons of chances at home recently and Brighton have been solid at home recently. If Salah isn't fit or is looking iffy for the game I'm simply moving over to Mane(C). Might do that anyway actually. Vardy(C) could be huge just as easily with that form he's in. Sheesh, guy is on fire.
                            It's one of those either way things and what ever your gut tells you go with it.
                            I also think you could be a few weeks early on Martial but at least he'll play and likely be OOP as long as he doesn't break himself again. Blades at home are tough and then Spurs and the Manchester derby before it gets really juicy for him. He could smoke Villa in there too.
                            Hopefully Kane starts firing for club like he's doing for country. He's become one helluva mild differential.

                            Good luck

                              Cheers. Yeh I'm very tempted to actually captain Kane this week. Massive differential at the moment.
                              Martial is on fire, I think the time is now, as long as he doesn't break like you said haha.

                              Salah cappy is solid too.... so hard to pick.

                          What changes should I make ? any suggestions

                          Pope
                          Soyuncu Lund VVD Pieters Dunk
                          Cantwell KDB Sterling Salah Saka
                          Abraham Jimenez Vardy

                          Should I ship sterling that would enable Maddison and Mount/Pulisic in mid field for -4 or wait another week and then do the same changes with 2 FT?

                            Hold and (C) Mane

                            9 same starters except I have Pereira and Salah. If Salah looks in any way iffy I'm moving over to Mane(C)

                                I meant hold the transfer. And yeah, hold Mount too. You could consider Pulisic for him but I think Fat Frank will jerk Pulisic straight out of the lineup as soon as he blanks and bring CHO back in.

                                Mount seems to be his fav.

                                  Thoughts on mount > richarlison for a one week punt? Then rich > pulisic the gw after?

                                    I like that. I'd love a Rich punt but am loathe to lose any of my mids. I could do it for KDB but I'm keeping the faith.
