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.

      Good to go

    2. The Fed
      • 4 Years

      Would go KDB captain unless you are chasing. Not certain that Sterling starts, Pep might like his new invention of both Jesus and Aguero starting.

      1. Tinmen
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        With their game in midweek, I can just see Sterling starting this one

      2. Devo-McDuff
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 8 days ago

        It’s not new, he’s played it before this season with Jesus in left off a front 3. In past seasons he’s also started both together in a front 2.

  2. The Fed
    • 4 Years

    Grealish

    1. The Fed

  3. kuzser

    Very keen to have 3 Liv players along with Martial, Alli and ideally triple Leicester for dgw 24.
    Will appreciate your advice on the below:

    1) gw24: Rico Grealish Jimenez-> VVD Martial Greenwood for -4
    2) gw24: Grealish Jimenez -> Fleck FIRMINO
    gw25: Alli-> Martial
    gw26: Maddison Firmino-> Salah Ayew for -4 (and rotate Ayew with Fleck)
    3) Rico Jimenez-> VVD Maupay for free
    4) Rico Alli -> GOMEZ Martial for free
    5) Rico Grealish-> ROBBO Hayden For free

  4. MoManeTaa
    • 2 Years

    Rashford or Son in GW24??

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      rash if fit

      1. MoManeTaa
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Thnx mate

    2. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Rashford may not be fit, wait for pressers

  5. Wally banter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Play Lundstram or get stephens and play him. No hit involved

    Current defense is
    Soyancu, TAA, Lund, Guilbert and Rico (both on chopping list)

    1. Tinmen
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Lund

      1. Wally banter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Hmm, arsenal eventhough is really bad on form wise, used to score one odd goal usually at home

  6. Catastrophe
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 8 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 -> Martial & DCL
    C) Traore & Rashford -> Son & Ayew
    D) Rashford -> DCL (Kelly & Traore -> Son & Williams next week)
    E) Traore, Kelly & Rashford -> Son, DCL & Williams
    F) 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. Currently on A although quite like the look of D and then E next week.

    Cheers

  7. JollyGoodYellows

    Rash + Grealish > Mane + Mousset? Already have Salah and TAA

  8. Energetics
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Any news on Rashford?

    Had already used my FT to do Jiminez to Ings

    Vardy, Rashford, Ings was looking like such a promising front line too

    1. MoManeTaa
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      This will be my front 3 from gw24 onwards

    2. IRBOX ⚽

      You knew the risks by making early transfers. Playing with fire.

      1. Energetics
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        Jiminez was set to drop Ings to rise

    I love it most weeks but thought it was bloody awful this week and hope Lee and Sam are never on it together again. Oh dear

      It’s been awful for a long time.

      1. Wally banter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Agreed with this, other pods are getting better.
        Joe alone cannot carry it long

        1. wasp3000
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          What are the other good FPL pods to listen to mate? Joe is brilliant and i think Az is a must on it but i think since Mark and Granville left it's taken away so much from it. You can have all the stats and analytics in the world but if you don't have people with a bit of a personality then it just wont work.

    3. Wally banter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Tbh, i never liked those two and never understood the hype they are getting.
      Also the segment which they are doing for ffs is the only video i usually skips

    4. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      I like the ones with Luke

    5. IRBOX ⚽
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Horrible ever since Mark left.

      1. wasp3000
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Agreed. Himself Joe and Granville were great together

    6. Jarvish Scott Talent

      FFS response is always "we are getting more views than ever so we must be doing something right" - says it all really.

      Had a bad gameweek? 🙂 Half left to listen but I think both are doing really great!

      1. wasp3000
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Are you asking me if i had a bad GW?? Average but that's not the point.

        I listened to it last night on the way home from work in the car and found myself cringing. Just wasn't an enjoyable podcast and as i said, i love it most weeks.

    8. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years

      Like Joe, not the others though.

    9. HarryB29
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      FPL family are pretty bad generally imo, scoutcast with Joe, Az, Luke and Andy every week would still be worth watching

  10. Lignja
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Plan was to save this week and do Abraham, Traore, Rico to Ings, Vvd, Hayden -4

    Pope, Martin
    Taa, Soyuncu, Lundstram, Rico, Kelly
    Mane, Kdb, Son, Traore, Dendoker
    Abraham, Rashford, Vardy

    Should i do
    A. Rash to Ings now and than Rico to Robertson next week (exact cahs) need Ings before price rice

    B. Rash to Ings this week+ Son to Salah next week

    1. JollyGoodYellows
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Need more info on Rash really. If he's back for Burnley surely you keep and bench this week?

  11. Feed tha Sheep
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Which one is better for DGW? (Have salah & TAA)

    A. Alli & Maddison > Mane & Fleck/Cantwell
    B. Rico & Alli > Robertson & Grealish/Sarr

    1. Bavarian
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      B

  12. Bavarian

    B-Soyuncu or Sidibe >>> Robbo or VVD

    1. kuzser
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      A by miles. Don’t like Jiménez pick(saying as an owner) for the next few matches. And when the fixtures improve, they will get extra games with EL

      1. Bavarian

    Robbo or VVD +0.6 for 3rd Pool slot? Think Robbo have a bigger chance of being rotated?

    1. Bavarian
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I'm thinking VVD long term

  16. Rbyrne95
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Do folk think there is anyone worth of a -4 hit from Rashford? If he's fit for next week I'd fancy keeping him against Burnley at home.
    (I am chasing mind you and I Have Traore or Baldock for cover if i don't play hiim. Just thinking for this week and DGW24)

  17. MoManeTaa

    What do I do with Rashford?

    a) keep
    b) -> Firmino
    c) -> Abraham
    d) -> Aguero (with Richarlison downgraded to Doucoure)

    Pope
    TAA - Soy - Lundstram - Kelly - Rico

    Vardy - Rashford - Ings

    2FT, 0.5ITB

    1. Stormbringer22

      we have similar teams, I'm also considering if B or D, I like B because it's a massive differential

  20. Longlatini

    Anyone see the injury to Traore, did it look bad?

    1. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Difficult to tell, but he was truly awful

        Ha cheers was asking for a friend 🙂

  21. Le Bluff
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Watched bits of the Utd game last night and, although it's early, days Brandon Williams looks like he could be the real deal.

    At 4.0, three favourable home fixtures in the next five, and with Luke Shaw not even in the squad, he does look good for those with the luxury transfers of wanting to move away from Kelly/Rico.

    Anybody considering him over the likes of Stephens/Holgate etc?

    1. Stormbringer22
      1 month, 8 days ago

      He is on the radar. If you are looking for someone to just sit on the bench, then there is no harm. I would still rather have Kelly though. Works better as a Rico replacement.

      1. Le Bluff
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Yep, me too. I'm already set for the DGW and have 2 FTs this week, so mulling over Rico > Williams.

        I think Williams is a good option providing you still have some decent/playing benched defenders. You can start him but, if he doesn't start for Utd, he's unlikely to get subbed on so you'll still get your bench points.

        1. Stormbringer22
          1 month, 8 days ago

          If you have 2FTs and nothing else urgent in your squad, then I would pull the trigger with Rico to Williams if I were you. As you say, make sure you have a playing bench

  22. wonkeydonkey

    Planning on Jimi to DCL and then Maddison to Mane next GW but have 1 FT to play with. Should I roll?

    Guaita (Stek)
    TAA, Soy, Aurier (Lund, Rico)
    Salah, KDB, Sarr, Maddison (Dendo)
    Vardy, Ings, Jimi

    2FTs and currently £3.7m but down to £0.3m after planned moves

        Should I use other FT on Guaita to McCarthy or Ryan? Or save?

        1. The VAR Team
          1 month, 8 days ago

          I'd save the other one, in case of injuries etc.

            Also Palace fixtures are great after this week!

    Bench one;

    A) Jimenez
    B) Cantwell
    C) Grealish

      c

    2. Almathkourq8

      I might go with A

    After a lot of red arrows, mostly due to captain fails and no ManU cover, I’ve been trying to bring in some differentials in DCL, Sidibé, Sarr etc. Haven’t worked out, my DCL is being crushed by Richarlison, Sidibé matched by any clean sheet, Sarr been great but that slot is up against Mahrez, or even Kun... advice needed!

    Best plan for next week?

    A) Rash + Martial > DCL + Mané

    B) Rash + Grealish > Greenwood + Mané (Play Greenwood or Kelly)

    What is the better option? I have Mane and TAA currently, and thinking of tripling on Liverpool.

    A) Salah + Rico + Cantwell
    B) Martial + Robbo + Grealish

    1. The VAR Team
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Probably B

      B

    Is Maupay absolutely nailed on? Looks like a decent placeholder for Abraham until his fixtures ease up and also gives me money for Maddison -> Salah.

    1. Kevin de Blanke
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I think DCL is a better option, but Maupay certainly has the fixtures

      1. Chandler Bing
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Yeah, I'm confused between the 2. DCL definitely more threatening but Maupay literally has the best possible fixtures in the next 3-4 GWs.

    Which one to play?
    A) Lundstram (ars)
    B) Gomez (MUN)

    TAA, Soyuncu, xx

    1. Miguel Sanchez

      b

      Wouldn't be surprised if Sheffield beat Arsenal 1-0

    3. Le Bluff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      A.

      No Aubameyang will hurt Arsenal. Sheff Utd will set up well, and there's always the chance of attacking returns with Lundstram.

      Plus I wouldn't double up on Pool defence vs Utd.

    Think the Rashford injury forces me in to a single plan. thoughts here with 2ft and 2m

    Ryan
    Taa • Lundy • Aurier -- Rico Zaba
    Kdb • Salah • Martial • Grealish -- Stephens
    Vardy • Rash • Ings

    A: Rashford >> Firmino and keep martial (liv, BUR, WOL)
    B: Rashford + Martial >> DCL (whu, NEW, wat, CPL) + Mane
    C: Rashford > Tammy and do Aurier >> Robbo + 1m in gw24. can use funds to upgrade Grealish later on

    1. Stormbringer22
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I would do C, simply because I don't like Aurier personally

    Suggestions for DWG

    Rayan (Fabianski)
    Dunk TAA Rico (Lund kelly)
    kdb mane Rich grealish Cantwell
    Vardy ingsy (Rashford)

    1.1 itb and 2FT

    A) Rich & Rashford >> Salah & DCL
    B) Dunk & Fabianski >> Martin & VVD
    D) Rashford & Rich >> Firmino & Martial
    E) any suggestions would be great

    Thank you in advance

      I wouldn't want to lose Richarlison if I had him, but out of those options I would go with A. Also, I would suggest playing Lundy over Rico.

        Thank you mate ..
        I dont want to lose Richarlison thats why im leaning on B more and especially im afraid of Klopp rotations
