The Scout Squad picks for FPL Gameweek 23

The Scout Squad panelists present their Fantasy Premier League squads for Gameweek 23.

In this recurring article, our four regulars – editorial staff Paul, David and Neale plus community manager Geoff – each proposes an 18-man squad of Fantasy assets for the coming weekend and explain their notable inclusions/omissions below.

The 72 nominations listed will then be narrowed down to a squad of 15 (with the starting XI not exceeding a total cost of £85m) for the weekly Scout Picks selection ahead of the deadline at 11:30 GMT 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 £6.5m or below and at least one forward priced at £7.5m or lower.

Each panelist is restricted to no more than three players from the same team, as is the case in FPL.

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

DAVID SAID…

Recent improvements at the back for Arsenal and Southampton has led me to believe both clubs have decent clean sheet potential in Gameweek 23.

Bernd Leno and David Luiz face a Sheffield United attack inside the Premier League’s bottom three for shots on target over the last four, while the Saints back-line has been bettered only by Liverpool during that time.

That’s why budget options Alex McCarthy and Jack Stephens make it into my Scout Squad selection, each one capable of saving Fantasy managers money either in goal or defence ahead of an anticipated Double Gameweek 24 splash-out.

Chelsea travel to a Newcastle side that continually struggles in front of goal, only Norwich and Bournemouth registering fewer big chances than the Magpies since Gameweek 19.

With Steve Bruce’s men also in the Premier League’s bottom two for big chances conceded during that period, I think the attacking potential of Reece James and Tammy Abraham is very attractive indeed.

I can’t see too many goals at Anfield on Sunday afternoon considering Liverpool and Manchester United’s recent defensive showings.

For that reason, I’ve included Trent Alexander-Arnold in my selection although Sadio Mané is the man I believe to be the most likely to puncture Manchester United’s defence.

Considering West Ham’s ongoing defensive problems, and an injury to Lukasz Fabianski, I’m backing an Everton triple-up for Gameweek 23, centred around Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

The two players are forming a very productive strike partnership under Carlo Ancelotti, each registering three attacking returns in the four matches since the Italian took over at Everton.

I think this could be the week that Jamie Vardy returns to the form we were enjoying several weeks ago.

He might have gone shotless against Southampton, but he will be facing a much more obliging defence in Gameweek 23 at Burnley.

Over the last four Gameweeks, the Clarets have conceded ten big chances, the fifth-worst in the Premier League.

NEALE SAID…

Pep Guardiola is one of the few head coaches who would have the temerity to bench a player who scored a hat-trick in his previous match but that is a possibility at the Etihad this weekend, such is the Manchester City manager’s unpredictable nature.

That caveat notwithstanding, Sergio Aguero (along with Kevin De Bruyne) gets the nod again in my Scout Squad picks after last week’s nomination – although I’m not expecting him to come close to matching Gameweek 22’s haul, with Crystal Palace an altogether tougher nut to crack.

Rotation is also a possibility with Benjamin Mendy, too, but should he start at left-back – as he has done in five of City’s last six league matches – then there is the potential for returns at both ends of the pitch.

Mendy is top among defenders for chances created over the last six Gameweeks, while the Eagles have scored the joint-fewest number of goals in the Premier League this season.

Bournemouth are one of the teams level with Palace for that statistic and have found the back of the net on just seven occasions in the last 15 Gameweeks, so there is a rare place for Tim Krul as one of my three goalkeepers.

Teammate Emiliano Buendia is also selected for Norwich City’s plum home fixture against the out-of-sorts Cherries, having created a remarkable 33 chances over the last seven Gameweeks: that’s a dozen more than Kevin De Bruyne has managed in that time.

Aston Villa and Newcastle United’s continuing vulnerability to crosses and dead-ball deliveries plays into my thinking regarding Brighton and Hove Albion and Chelsea assets.

Lewis Dunk is a constant threat in the air for the Seagulls and has had more headed attempts from set plays than any of his teammates in 2019/20.

Tammy Abraham is joint-top among forwards for headed chances over the last six Gameweeks, meanwhile, and I noticed Callum Hudson-Odoi was on corner-taking duty in Gameweek 22 – the young winger could also find joy down Newcastle’s right from open play, with the Magpies having conceded the highest number of crosses from that wing in 2019/20.

A word on Leicester City, too, whose players are being sold in their droves ahead of Gameweek 23.

Burnley, the Foxes’ opponents this weekend, have shipped eight goals and scored just one in a point-less run over the last four Gameweeks.

Looking at 2019/20 overall, the Clarets have conceded at least two goals in all seven of their meetings with the current top six – so Jamie Vardy remains entrenched in my Scout Squad picks and indeed my own FPL team.

PAUL SAID…

I’m advocating a triple-up on Man City at home to Palace in Gameweek 23, with Pep Guardiola’s men offering strong options in defence and attack.

Benjamin Mendy is one of my differentials this week.

Owned by a mere 1% of squads, the Frenchman has supplied 11 key passes in the last six Gameweeks – more than any defender and second only to Kevin De Bruyne’s 16 for City.

A trip to Newcastle hands Reece James the chance to build on last weekend’s 11-point haul against Burnley.

The Chelsea right-back has started each of the last two league matches and his numbers underline his all-round attacking potential.

James’ five shots on goal in that period were more than any other defender, while his total of four chances created sits just one off the summit at the back.

Yet he can be found in just 0.4% of squads ahead of his clash with the Magpies.

Backing the Brighton attack at home to Aston Villa seems a sensible move and Alireza Jahanbakhsh offers the perfect differential.

Sitting in just 0.1% of squads, the Iranian has scored against Bournemouth and Chelsea in each of the Seagulls’ last two at the Amex Stadium.

Jahanbakhsh has produced eight shots and five shots in the box in the last three Gameweeks – both are more than any team-mate.

The aerial impact of Sebastien Haller (2.4% owned) could prove decisive for West Ham against Everton.

The Frenchman has won 28 headed duels in the last two Gameweeks since David Moyes took charge, more than any other player in FPL.

Everton, meanwhile, have conceded 13 headers in Carlo Ancelotti’s four matches in charge, the joint-worst record in the league.

Expect plenty of crosses from Moyes’ men, then, with Haller making a late charge for our consideration ahead of the Hammers’ Double Gameweek 24.

GEOFF SAID…

If Brighton can keep Jack Grealish quiet they will have a good shot at a clean sheet, so I look to Mat Ryan as my first goalkeeper selection.

Kasper Schmeichel will hope to shut out Burnley, though the Leicester defence has looked suspect in recent weeks, and Kepa Arrizabalaga travels to Newcastle to play a somewhat in-form Miguel Almiron.

I see very few clean sheets this weekend and can make an argument for any team conceding. Manchester City look one of the stronger bets, but I’ll look to attacking potential in my defensive picks this week. Trent Alexander-Arnold is, therefore, my first pick, with Matt Doherty, Ricardo Pereira and Serge Aurier taking spots two through four, and Reece James occupying fifth position.

After scoring six in Gameweek 22, I lean on Manchester City’s attacking assets, starting with Kevin De Bruyne. While this is partly due to what I see as some security of starts, he also has the ability to pour it on and is central to what City do going forward.

Elsewhere, Jose Mourinho and Spurs need to find some form and, without Harry Kane, Son Heung-min looks poised to be a central figure for them.

Todd Cantwell tops the ‘value’ chart for all players in Gameweek 22 in our Rate My Team tool and is high in my thinking this week, while Richarlison and Jack Grealish also have promising away fixtures.

Up front, I’m counting on another start and strong performance from Sergio Aguero, while Tammy Abraham is beginning to find form, with a strong fixture before they become more difficult from Gameweek 24.

Jamie Vardy will force his way into my picks again and until he stops returning he’ll likely retain his spot every week.

Teemu Pukki should be fit enough to start against Bournemouth, and I look to a very out-of-form striker for my possibly surprising fifth pick: Callum Wilson.

THE COMMUNITY CHAMPION

Each week, one of the Fantasy Football Scout community takes on the Scout Picks by pitting their chosen XI against ours.

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 Moderators and Contributors League for the following season.

Last week, Pep Pig lost 64-72 to the Scout Picks.

Irfansheikh and AK’s 17-point winning margins from Gameweek 6 and 10 remain the current targets to beat.

Our Scout Picks article on Friday will have further details on who is representing the community this week.

      yup

  4. Captain_Shirokov
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Henderson
    TAA - Lundstram - Soyuncu
    Mane - KdB - Maddison - Hudson-Odoi
    Vardy - Abraham - Ings

    (Cathcart, Dendoncker, Rico)

    1 ft, 4.4m.

    I have two options, from what I can see, for the double gameweek. I would like advise on which you think is best?

    A) Rico to Robertson
    B) Rico/Soyuncu to Williams, Maddison to Salah

    If I do option B, I will probably save my ft and do both for free next week, prices permitting. Currently I prefer A, as I think two defenders is a better option long term given Liverpool's recently solidity.

    Help me please!

    1. Badger Badger Mushroom Mush…
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      I'd try get Salah for CHO

      1. Badger Badger Mushroom Mush…
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Abraham to Greenwood, Dendonk to Salah?

        1. Captain_Shirokov
          • 2 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          Don't have enough cash.

      2. Captain_Shirokov
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Impossible without tearing my team apart.

  5. FirminoIsBetterThanYou
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Would you do Rico & Rashford -> Stephens & Firmino (3rd Pool player) for free?

    1. Albert_Luque
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      I'd be tempted, especially given Rashford now a doubt.

      1. Albert_Luque
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        In fact, think I'll be doing Pope and Rashford to Firmino and Mccarthy this week for free

    2. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Bobby not very popular on here but I've done that exact move on my wildcard...hope he'll have a purple patch and be a cheeky differential for us 🙂

      1. Albert_Luque
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        I'd rather have Mane and Salah, but having a quarter of your money in those two disrupts team balance too much I feel.

    3. FirminoIsBetterThanYou
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Cheers for the replies guys I will wait for pressers but I’ll probably do it.

  6. Daghe Munegu
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Sory bottomed

    Would you save the ft guys? Or get rid of Pope?
    Also would you start Cantwell or Martial?

    Pope
    TAA Robertson Sidibé
    Salah KDB Cantwell Grealish
    Vardy Ings Abraham

    Button Martial Rico Reid

    1. Igor-Stimac
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      I'd swap Pope out and start Cantwell.

      Abraham could be a good captain differential if you are brave.

  7. andres
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Hedno
    Sidibe TAA Soy
    Kdb Alli Salah Cantwell
    Rash Vardy Ings

    Traore, Lund, Kelly 2.5, 2FT

    A Alli, Rash => Mane, DCL
    B Alli, Soy => Richa, Robb
    C Alli, Soy, Sidibe => Holgate, Stephens, Mane (-4)

    1. andres
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      in C I keep Rash and get Mane, but no Everton attackers.

    2. shearer2020
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      10 months, 23 days ago

      if its for gw23, I'd go for A since Rash is in doubt.
      If for gw24 and beyond, wait and see till end of weekend

  8. Badger Badger Mushroom Mush…
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Firmino differential debate.

    You know he's only a differential if you don't have Salah/Mane and either one you don't have doesn't score point... which isn't going to happen now is it.

    Be smart. Be Salah. Be Mane Mane.

    1. SKULL AND GNOMES
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      You have to own Bobby for a length of time before you can really appreciate what a shadow of a player he's become this season.

      The guys just feeding on scraps and I aint buying the "form player" argument.

      1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        He scored last week - that makes him a form player according to FFS.

      2. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        for me he's just a short term pick and a punt for the DGW...if it fails it fails and when he starts his serial blanking he'll she shipped out in favour of Robbo added to Trent

    2. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 24 days ago

      I don’t get what you’re saying lol. Getting firmino is betting that he potentially scores more than the mid you don’t have. Firmino isn’t a bad choice imo and if I had him honestly I would probably tc him as he is the differential captain

    3. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      you're missing a key point though...the money saved allows some significant firepower in midfield alongside one of Mane/Salah.
      eg, my current mid (albeit punty) looks very juicy for the DGW:
      Mane Son Mahrez Martial Richarlison

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        actually prob too much so as I'll have a benching headache for a few GWs but can live with that 😉

    4. Tinkermania
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 24 days ago

      He is only a differential if the opposing don't have him.

      1. Tinkermania
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 24 days ago

        *Opposition

    5. jaguar shark
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Liverpool players sorted by form:

      TAA: 10
      Salah: 7.6
      Mane: 6.8
      Gomez: 6.6
      VVD/Robertson: 6.4

      There is so much hype on the Salah/Mane double up. Maybe a defensive double is a better option!

      1. cuppatea78
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        I'll be going for a defensive double up next week. Already have Mane and TAA and will bring in Gomez next week.

  9. jaguar shark

    Any predictions on ramsdale?

    1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ

      Disappointment

    2. YEAH PITCH!
      • 1 Year

      He's going to leave many teams.

    3. Bavarian
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Is he going to play this gw?

  10. DAZZ
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    moved on Rashford > Ings, feels good to have the man in form. Have Martial for united fixtures, What are Rashford owners doing?

    1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Definitely keeping, he's a player I want in my team long term (like for the next 5 seasons) so unless and until we have some certainty on the length of his absence there's no way I'm using a FT to get rid of an outstanding FPL player that I'll want back as soon as he's fit again (which could be Sunday, could be Burnley model, or could be the following week etc)

      That's just me though I'm sure others have other thoughts 🙂

      1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Are you TCing TAA for the DGW for 500% Liverpool defensive EO?

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          Considering captaining TAA for sure - especially given he has 33 returns in his last 30 starts (to Mane's 30 returns & Salah 's 23 returns! )

          But can't see triple captaining - I think there'll potentially be better DGW's later 🙂

      2. DAZZ
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Yeah can definitely see why people would keep. With the injury lingering, it's obviously a problem, and LFC away the weekend, i felt it was right to move on him, my closest ML rivals all own Ings, i don't think i could deal with Rashford, 1. Blanking, or even worse 2. Not playing. I'm just covering myself, In fairness, depending on how Vardy get's on in the next 2, i could see myself switching back to Rashford in a few weeks.

    What would you rather have:

    Gomez-De Bruyne-Firmino
    or
    Gomez-Mané-Wilson (or Jimenez)

    I already have Salah and Ings

  12. ritzyd
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Think i am talking myself into the TAA TC for gameweek 24! Away performance this season:

    Salah 8 games - 5 attacking returns (1G/4A) - 42 pts - 4 blanks
    Mane 9 games - 7 attacking returns (4G/3A) - 58 pts - 4 blanks
    TAA 10 games - 7 attacking returns (2G/5A) - 67 pts - 4 blanks + 4 CS

    1. DAZZ
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Im punting on Salah TC, currently 3/15 have him in my ML, so it's a punt worth taking

    2. KingOllie
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Most those Trent points came in that freak game, both teams they are playing can easily score.

      Id opt for Mane personally

      1. ritzyd
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        He got 24 for that game, so even if you 'normalise' that and go with one assist instead he would still have 56 pts

    3. Igor-Stimac
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      It's that midweek game that's throwing me out, hopefully Klopp plays fodder between those fixtures.

    4. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      You know you can’t be Aguero (C) and TAA (TC) at the same time right? 🙂

    Play one: Soy or Lund?

    Leicester looking crap at the back atm, but Burnley are rubbish.

    Sheff better at the back and playing a Aub-less Arsenal.

    Morning lads

    Ryan (Button)
    TAA Robertson Holgate
    Grealish Maddison KDB Mane Cantwell
    Ings Vardy

    Bench: Rashford Soy Rico

    0 FT, 0 ITB.

    GTG? Who should be next on my transferlist?
    Benching Rashford feels somehow right, benching order right?

      Ancelotti mentioned Holgate might rest time by time and he is the only one who should be on your transferlist atm.
      Wait to hear more about Rashford.

      hopefully nobody and they put XI behind the ball and keep Leicester at bay and a sneaky 1-0! Oh that would be sweet as 🙂

    Rash to Greenwood
    Maddison to Salah ?

  20. ElliotJHP
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 23 days ago

    Rico to Stephens worth a transfer if nothing else doing?

    If Lund is dropped, Kelly away to City might be subbed in atm.

    1. XABI 15
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      go for it

        Grealish to salah -4 this week

        Or just wait till FT next week for DGW?

        Also will Rico play against Norwich?
        I would imagine he would come back in after result against Watford

      • AC Me Rollin’
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 23 days ago

        Who shall I bench for GW23, Cantwell or Mount?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          10 months, 23 days ago

          Also, still in two minds whether to Captain De Bruyne or Ings, I know Ings is a bit of a risk but I just have a feeling he will get a couple of goals against Wolves

      • lmac
        • 1 Year

        Thoughts on this team and potential moves. WWYD?
        1 FT already made this week Guiata to McCarthy
        McCarthy
        TAA, Lund, Soy
        Salah, KDB, Mane, Fleck
        Vardy, Jimenez, Ings

        Button, Traore, Saiss, Ings

        Thinking of bringing in either DCL or Deeney for Jimenez
        and Traore maybe for Perez for a two week punt against Burnley and WH. Or maybe just brining in Sarr/Doucoure now?
        All for a total of -4

        Mariappa, Stephens, Richarlison on watchlist

        1. lmac

          Vardy (C)

      • willevete
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 23 days ago

        Ramsdale

        Söyuncu, TAA, Sidibe

        Martial, Salah, Maddison, Traore KDB

        Jimenez, Vardy,

        ( Rico, Kelly, Ayew, Button)
        I’m in a mess.
        Ramsdale injured so he needs to go.
        I want Mane in my team for DGW but i don’t know how.
        This is my plan for this and next GW:
        This GW: (-8 hit)
        Ramsdale -> McCarthy
        Martial -> Sarr
        Traore -> Cantwell
        ———————————
        This leaves me with 2.9 ITB for DGW.
        Then for the DGW: (-4 hit)
        Maddison -> Mane
        Jimenez -> Mousset
        ———————————-
        This will get me this team:

        McCarthy

        Sidibe, TAA, Söyuncu

        Cantwell, Mane, Salah, Sarr, KDB

        Vardy, Mousset

        (Bench: Button, Rico, Kelly, Ayew)

        Should i do this? Are these the best moves?
        I could aswell do a straight swap from Vardy to Firmino. This will be lesser hits and could be a way to go.
