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.

      You already got Richarlison, 8mill plays up front decent pick

      1. gooner_112233445566

        I don’t have him? Can’t afford as he is 8.1 and I already have dcl

      • 2 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      C
      Maddy is due big haul I think. Lack of luck last game to not get at least 1 assist and it was his worst performance in a game since the start of the season imo

    3. Almathkourq8

      • The Fed
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        You have tripple Liver already I assume. I like Martial as he is forward classified as mid playing for an attacking team with two home games after Liverpool. I would probably wait til next week though with that transfer. Maddison is a great choice as well with a good fixture this weekl if you want to sell Traore now.

      Some of these picks are so biased.

            Spurs are away to Watford? But even so, I wouldn’t pick aurier myself

          2. Daniel S.

          Lol I could but not keen on a one week move as I would need to downgrade Kun for a pool player in gw24

    7. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      David bloody Luiz, James and Mendy popular and just the one pick for Mane...a little odd?

        Tammy & Traore to Greenwood & Salah?

    9. Abra Dubravka
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Is Gomez likely to be dropped now Matip is back in training?

      1. Zladan
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Probably

      2. 1zverGGadeM
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Matip is not match fit yet

      3. pratikpaw
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        When Klopp had everyone fit at the start of the season he started Gomez alongside VVD. This shows that Gomez is his preferred option. Why would he also change it now when Gomez has been an performing well and even outperforming VVD on occasions. Matip and Lovren will play in the FA Cup tie.

      4. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        I can't see it happening personally

      5. XabiAlonso
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        6 clean sheets in a row since he's been back in the team. Somehow I don't think so.

      6. Abra Dubravka
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Cheers all. I will hold this week and reassess next week

      7. The Fed
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Gomez is playing really good, 6 straight CS and Klopp wants him to continue his growth. Can't see it happening. Never change a winning team.

    10. AC Yew
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Hey guys for GW24 I'm looking at this team. Is it too weak? Any improvements to be made? Unsure about Doucoure

      McCarthy McGovern
      Robertson Soy Lundstram TAA Rico
      KDB Mane Maddison Doucoure Cantwell
      Vardy Ings Jimenez

      1. 1zverGGadeM

        Hopefully so as that will be my team except Cantwell is Grealish and Soy is sidibe

    11. JollyGoodYellows

      Morning guys, best moves here with 2FTs and 1.9 itb?

      Henderson (Button)
      TAA Lund Soy (Kelly Rico)
      Salah KDB Rich Grealish Cantwell
      Vardy Ings (Rashford)

      1. The Fed
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Most likely you need Mane for the DGW, because he will be TC'ed by so many. Can you do Rich + Rash to Mane and DCL?

        1. The Fed
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Can wait for next week though, you can spend the FT this week on downgrading Rico to Williams/Hanley/Tanganga/Taylor to save cash and get playing defender.

      Morning all! Any advice much appreciated - I already have Salah but no other LIV players. I don’t want to rip up my team so what’s preferable out of these two options I can afford:

      A) Gomez, Salah, Mane
      B) TAA, Salah, Firmino

      Any thoughts most appreciated!

        Seen so many opinions about which 3 and all the combos possible. End of the day all options have the pros and cons and it's just a case of what you prefare and how you like to balance your team.

        All I say is go with what you think suits your team best and suits your identity as a FF manager, good luck!

      I'm reluctantly playing Martial and Lundstram this week. Can I justify any hits?
      A. Rico to Stephens
      B. Dendoncker to Cantwell
      C.

      1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…

        Oops. C. Martial to Mahrez/Dilva/Sarr

      Morning,

      Who to bench for this weekend?

      A. Lund
      B. Holgate
      C. Dunk

      Thank you

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        A or B - what do you think is more likely? Everton clean sheet (whu) or Lund attacking return (ars)?

        1. n14mul
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          There lies my question. Currently have Lund on the bench as I think arsenal hold a better attacking threat with Arteta running the ship.

          Also depends if Antonio is back for West ham I suppose

        B.

      3. Kevin de Blanke
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Def not Dunk, attacking threat + the current worst side in the league

        Lund would be the "safe" pick as I think a lot of top managers will play him (due to Rico + Kelly ownership)

        Holgate if you want a slight "differential"

        1. Kevin de Blanke
          • 4 Years

      Planning on selling traore this week with my 1 ft. Got 8mil for midfielder..

      A) anderson (so Have him for double gameweek)
      B) Maddison
      C) keep traore and save ft

        Personally me I have a keen interest in Sarr.

        Just want to see if he plays this week after spitting his dummy our for being subbed.

        Pearson is old school so may bench him if he don't play ball!!

    19. Goat

      On wildcard. Who is my third Liverpool players?
      A) Salah
      B) Mane

      1. MoManeTaa
        • 2 Years

        salalala

        1. Goat
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          I think so too. ML leader has Mane too so want to be different. Even though I’m only 17 points behind

      2. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        who are the first two?

        1. Goat
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Trent and Robbo

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 7 days ago

            Nice - I am on WC with Robbo/TAA/Salah - come join me

            1. Goat
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 7 days ago

              That’s what I am on currently because I couldn’t afford Mane. But last night I saved 0.1 on Button’s drop so can afford mane again 😆

      3. The Fed
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Salah is the choice if you are chasing, Mane will be on 200% EO and is the safe pick. Ideally you would have both, but I can understand why you would want double Liverpool defense as well.

        1. The Fed
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          For the DGW that is

        2. Goat
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Chasing but it’s only 17 points. I think salah will get a penalty over the next 3 games too. Tough choice

    20. MoManeTaa
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Who wud you buy in GW24 for next few GWs?

      A) Rashford
      B) Son

      1. The Fed
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Rashford injured

    21. n-doggg

      Martial and Abraham to Salah and DCL?

      Current team

      Gazza
      TAA, Soyunco, Lundstram, Rico, Kiko
      Mane, Kdb, MARTIAL, Traore, Hayden
      Vardy, jiminez, ABRAHAM

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Losing Abraham before Newcastle? Nope.

    22. IRBOX ⚽
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Nothing in the bank.. how would you use the free tranny? Rashford to Ings looks the best scenario:

      Pope
      TAA Holgate Lundstram
      Salah KDB Richarlison Maddison
      Vardy Tammy Rashford

      Button Dendoncker Rico Kelly

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        yup Rash to Ings looks sensible

      2. n-doggg
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        What’s your plan to get another pool asset?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Tammy to Firmino an option

        2. IRBOX ⚽
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Firmino for free or Mane for a -4 depending on how they look this weekend

      3. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      3. The Fed

      Gw23 Rashford > Dcl
      Gw24 Rico/Kelly > Robertson
      Gw25 save
      Gw26 Ings in for either Greenwood or Dcl

        1. Jones Kusi
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

            • 1 Year

      1. HarryB29
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        McCarthy?

        1. wasp3000
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Yes I could do that. Would you downgrade Guaita or bring in for button???

    26. Nespinha

      Foster,
      Lundstram, Robbo, Sidibe

      Vardy, Rashford, Maupay

      Subs: button, dendoncker, kelly, kiko

      2FT -- 2.3ITB
      Was thinking of getting Aguero in, but with Rashfords injury...

      A) Rashford --- Firmino
      B) Kiko --- Gomez + keep Rashford
      C) Kiko --- Gomez + transfer Rashford out

    27. balint84
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      A) Jimenez to Abrahams
      B) Gazza to Ryan

      2. JT11fc

        B

    28. Catastrophe
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      1 FT, 1.1 ITB. Help greatly appreciated!

      Ryan
      TAA, Holgate, Lundstram
      Salah, Mane, KDB, Cantwell
      Vardy, Ings, Rashford*

      (Woodman, Traore, Kelly, Simpson)

      A) Traore -> Sarr
      B) Traore & Rashford -> Sarr & Abraham
      C) Traore & Rashford -> Martial & DCL
      D) Traore & Rashford -> Son & Ayew
      E) Traore, Cantwell & Rashford -> Son, Greenwood & Sarr (leaves 0.0)

      With Rashford (and Traore) presumably a doubt and Holgate potentially rested I dont want to stick and risk not fielding 11.

      Cheers

      1. JT11fc
        • 1 Year

        I like D

        1. Catastrophe
          • 9 Years

          Cheers. What about rotation with Tosun brought in?

    29. Goat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Just realised I can quite easily get Salah AND Mane. Which would you rather?
      A) Son & Robbo
      B) Mane & Holgate

      Salah and Trent already in there

      1. Whats the Huth
        • 4 Years

        B

      2. The Fed
        • 4 Years

        B and tripple C Mane next week

    30. ShaunGoater123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Rashford to Ings done last night. 1 free transfer left, to get in TAA for:

      A) Targett
      B) Rico

      Which do you prefer?

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        B - team in poor form and he's been dropped

        1. ShaunGoater123
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          very true. Bournemouth forums seem to think he wasn't quite fit enough to start last weekend but all of the forums team predictions have him playing...

    31. Athletic Dildao
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      I thought the Vardy Party was over?

      1. Whats the Huth
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Why?

        1. Athletic Dildao
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Scoutcast yesterday. Attributing two no shows to an apparent loss of form.

    32. wasp3000
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Bench 1 this GW only

      A) Grealish (Bur a)
      B) Traore (Sou a)
      C) Cantwell (Bou h)

      1. The Fed
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Grealish, Aston Villa are shocking

        1. wasp3000
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          this is very true. I think it's between A&B to bench as Cantwell at home to a poor Bou might get a double digit haul
