The Scout Squad picks for FPL Gameweek 26

The Scout Squad panel look at the best Fantasy Premier League assets for Gameweek 26.

In this recurring feature, our four regulars – editorial staff Paul, David and Neale plus community manager Geoff – each proposes an 18-man squad of players 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 Gameweek 26 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…

Given their recent form and the ongoing defensive issues at Norwich, who tend to concede more at Carrow Road, I feel like the inclusions of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino explain themselves.

Elsewhere, I’m doubling up on the Sheffield United defence with Dean Henderson and Enda Stevens as Bournemouth come to visit. The Cherries have scored just one goal in their last five away trips while five of the Blades’ nine clean sheets this season have come at Bramall Lane.

Meanwhile, Crystal Palace have scored fewer goals than any other side in 2019/20 (22), which could help Everton to a much-needed clean sheet at Goodison Park.

Lucas Digne has been a reliable asset there of late, especially since Carlo Ancelotti took over. Since the Italian arrived on Merseyside, Everton’s left-back has averaged eight points per home game.

I’m also backing the Southampton defence as they host Burnley. Only Liverpool and Manchester United have conceded fewer big chances in their last four home matches while Burnley remain in the bottom two for shots on target over their last four Premier League outings.

I expect Kevin De Bruyne, Riyad Mahrez and Sergio Aguero to run wild when West Ham come to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

David Moyes’ men have conceded 14 big chances over their last four matches, only Aston Villa allowing more than that.

Meanwhile, Aguero is top of the league for shots in the box, big chances and shots on target over the same period – exciting news for him and De Bruyne, who tops the league for key passes in his last four.

As Villa are the only side to have conceded more big chances than West Ham since Gameweek 21, I’m also including Son Heung-min, who may be in a more central role at Spurs following Steven Bergwijn’s arrival.

Harvey Barnes has provided great value of late, registering four attacking returns in as many Premier League outings since Gameweek 22.

During this period only one other midfielder priced below £6.0m has produced more shots on target, suggesting Barnes’ form could continue, even at Wolves.

Danny Ings and Troy Deeney complete my selection, each player falling inside the division’s top six for shots inside the box over the last four matches.

NEALE SAID…

Last weekend was a fairly underwhelming one for FPL forwards but there is ample opportunity for some notable blanking assets to bounce back in Gameweek 26, with the likes of Sergio Aguero, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Danny Ings enjoying some plum home fixtures.

There are a number of appealing matches over the next fortnight but, in terms of team news, we will be going in blind with a dozen Premier League clubs, with the winter break playing havoc with the fixture calendar.

There is every chance, then, that at least one of my picks will be flagged as a doubt after the FPL deadline passes on Saturday morning.

We should be up to speed on the fitness front for the four matches this weekend, at least, with Sheffield United and Everton enjoying home fixtures against sides who have struggled to score in 2019/20.

While Bournemouth have picked up back-to-back wins at home, they haven’t scored in four of their last five games on the road and Enda Stevens could potentially profit from a Cherries defence that has conceded more chances from their right flank than any other club over the last six Gameweeks.

Crystal Palace, meanwhile, have not only scored fewer goals than any other Premier League side this season but they have also allowed more crosses from their right flank than any top-flight team over the last dozen Gameweeks: enter Lucas Digne.

The Eagles are without a clean sheet in nine Gameweeks, too, so Dominic Calvert-Lewin has a chance to continue his fine form in the Carlo Ancelotti era.

Brighton v Watford is another game taking place this weekend and I’m siding with the Hornets over the Seagulls, plumping for Watford number ten Abdoulaye Doucoure – who sits in the top ten among midfielders for attempts on goal over the last six Gameweeks – against an Albion defence with only one clean sheet to their name in 14 matches.

Watford have shipped five goals in their last two matches but have generally been fairly solid at the back since Nigel Pearson’s arrival, so Adam Masina – who poses a bit of a goal threat and who was on corners in Gameweek 25 – gets the nod as my token sub-£5.0m defender.

Most of my other selections are heavy-hitters up against lower-table sides, with the nomination of Willy Caballero perhaps the only other one that needs further explanation: Manchester United are without a goal since Gameweek 22, which is coincidentally when the talismanic and still-unavailable Marcus Rashford picked up his back injury.

PAUL SAID…

The main bone of contention in this week’s Scout Picks surrounds the pitch time of Sergio Aguero at home to West Ham.

If he starts, there’s no denying he could run riot against the Hammers defence.

Yet, given the worries over Raheem Sterling’s fitness, I’d rather back Riyad Mahrez and spread the rest of the cash through the starting XI.

Both Aguero and Mahrez have started 14 matches this season, with the latter proving the more explosive with five double-figure hauls to the Argentinean’s four.

At a saving of £3.5m, that seems a logical decision, particularly as I’ll be backing Mohamed Salah with the armband away to Norwich.

Along with Mahrez, Son Heung-min sits in just over 9% of squads ahead of Gameweek 26.

The South Korean has fired 11 shots in the box in the last four Gameweeks since Harry Kane was sidelined – Lucas Moura (six) is the only other Spurs player to manage at least half that total.

I’m also looking to Leandro Trossard to extend his reliable home form against Watford.

All three of the Brighton winger’s goals this season and four of his five assists have come at the Amex Stadium.

When selected, he has been involved in 64% of the Seagulls’ efforts in front of their own supporters.

Indeed, Trossard has averaged 5.1 points per home appearance, yet is owned by less than 1% of FPL squads.

Lucas Digne is another player whose home output merits highlighting as Everton entertain Crystal Palace.

The left-back has averaged 5.4 points per match at Goodison, with 65 of his 81 points coming in home fixtures.

Digne has two assists, two clean sheets and 24 points in his three home outings under new manager, Carlo Ancelotti.

GEOFF SAID…

The Crystal Palace game is vital for Everton, as from Gameweek 27 they play five of the traditional top seven and Leicester in a stretch of seven Gameweeks – I therefore look to Jordan Pickford to bank a clean sheet before things potentially turn sour.

Elsewhere, Bernd Leno will hope for his first back-to-back clean sheets of the season against a limited Newcastle United attack, while Mat Ryan should fancy his chances against Watford.

What more can be said about Trent Alexander-Arnold? My settled first defensive pick again gets the top spot in my squad ahead of the Reds’ trip to bottom-of-the-table Norwich City.

Lucas Digne brings his strong home form into his match against Crystal Palace, and Enda Stevens is my pick of the Sheffield United bunch given the well-documented concerns around John Lundstram’s game-time.

Serge Aurier’s attacking threat helps him to fourth spot, while Jack Stephens will try to help Southampton recover from an unfortunate 4-0 Liverpool loss.

With 32 points in two Gameweeks, five double-digit hauls in the last ten Gameweeks, and only one blank in seven matches – Mohamed Salah is an obvious first pick in midfield.

As sure of a start as anyone at Manchester City, I expect Kevin De Bruyne to park himself at the top of the box against a forgiving West Ham defence.

Son Heung-min now has a goal in back-to-back games and could continue that run against Aston Villa, while Leandro Trossard has strong home form this season and plays a Watford side who have conceded five goals in the last two Gameweeks.

Finally, I look to Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva for a midfield double-up, though he drops to fifth due to my uncertainty over Pep Guardiola’s teamsheet.

It’s hard to avoid the big names up top so I complete a Manchester City treble with Sergio Aguero, before looking to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Danny Ings has seen a slight dip in production but has had his minutes managed of late, and I expect returns against Burnley.

Raúl Jiménez and Dominic Calvert-Lewin round off my picks for Gameweek 26.

    Wildcarding

    The last dilemma I have

    A) Pope, Stevens, Lascelles
    B) Henderson, O'Connell, Stephens

    If A only one SHU player

    1. Coys96

      Who are your other defenders?

      1. Gringo Kid
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 3 days ago

        McCarthy, TAA, Boly and VVD

  2. Gazza2000
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    On WC, which option would you go for ?

    Leaning towards option A at the moment, Aguero would be for the West ham game only, will swap to Firmino next week and have enough funds ITB to swap Mahrez later on to KDB after GW 29.

    Henderson McCarthy
    TAA O'Connell Fernandez Stephens Taylor
    Salah ** Son Barnes Hayden
    Jimenez ** Ings

    A) Aguero and Mahrez
    or
    B) Firmino and KDB

    3. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 5 Years

      WCing with future planned transfers is a risky business, I'd get all my ducks in a row now if I was on a WC. Not the best week to WC.

      1. Gazza2000
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        True, not keen on planned transfers myself and that's what makes me doubt going with Aguero and Mahrez...

        1. Jarvish Scott Talent
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Such a good fixture this week though! Tough spot.

    1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Agreed - agonising not having more than Kdb. Very tempted by Auba to Kun or Martial to Mahrez even though I understand the stupidly (adding blankers)

  5. RAFA THE GAFFA

    2 months, 3 days ago

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 4 Years

        C is tempting. Would you go VVD or Robbo mate?

        1. Gazza2000
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Robbo for sure

    2. LC1
      • 5 Years

      C for me.

      Robbo over VVD is you're not strapped for cash!

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA

        Thanks mate

    3. Bavarian

      Lund > O'Connell

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Too many GW28 blankers for that move probably

    4. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      C looks good for me too - I actually prefer Vvd as things stand

    5. Little Red Lacazette
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      C. Good long term.

    6. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      C but with VVD - reasons further below

  6. waltzingmatildas
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    Which one to bench?
    A) grealish
    B) traore
    C) mooy

    1. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      A and B are way more potentially explosive.

    2. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 3 days ago

      c

  7. LC1
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    Really hate to be that guy, and I apologise in advance...

    But am I right in saying;

    GW28 blanks confirmed.

    Then there will be more blanks in GW31? If so, which teams are confirmed / likely?

    And then the doubles are GW35 and 37??

    Sorry again!

    1. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Correct on 28 and 31, I think the doubles are likely to be 34 and 37.

      Ben Crellin on Twitter has all the best info on this.

      1. LC1
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Appreciate that mate.

        Cheers!

    No Pope in picks again. Have they not learned anything?

    1. HUATSHOOTER
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Totally agree. I have pope since start . And nvr regretted.

    2. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      They’ve all backed Ings instead and Southampton are looking good.

      1. My heart goes Salalalalah
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Tongue-in-cheek. Should've put 😉

    3. El Presidente
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Pope is one-dimension keeper. And Burnley not very good away from home.

  9. Mufc202020

    A) Auba & Gomez
    B) Aguero & Saiss/Webster

    1. Miguel Sanchez

  10. HUATSHOOTER

    Guys, will you sell vardy and grealish for minus 4 to calvert and son?

    1. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      No - you'll want rid of DCL very soon. I'm giving him this week.

    2. Fernando Torres
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      No

    3. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year

      No

    4. PlumaPiedra
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      No. DCL out after this week.

  11. Old Man
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    So do we think Son's on penalties now?

    1. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Can’t see why not, unless they’re doing whoever wins it takes it

      1. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Yes, that might be the case.

    2. Iggy pop
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Seen he mentioned he has been practicing pens every day in training, only other player was trippier who used to when Kane was missing. - a hopeful Son owner

  12. Fernando Torres
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    Stephens or O'Connell in?

    If I bring in O'Connell I'll start Rico(CHE) Gw28 and not have Stephens(whu)

    1. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Can’t say I fancy either of those for Clean sheet in GW28 so maybe O’Connell if that would be your only Sheff Utd defender.

  13. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    Settling down to a Lundstram replacement between:

    A) Stephens - cheap, double up with McCarthy
    B) Doherty - expensive, major goal threat

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Have a look at Fernandez & Boly as well.

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

        I did but didn't like the xG conceded for Newcastle. Seems to be overperforming somewhat. Boly is probably the sensible Wolves pick but can't resist an attacking full back.

    2. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      B. That's the move an fpl winner makes

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

        Cheers - its the one I want to do for sure

    3. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      B for me mate. What you think above? C worth the hit?

  14. Pirlø's Pen
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    Vardy, Cantwell -> Son, Martinelli worth a -4?

    McCarthy
    TAA Robbo Stephens
    Salah(c) KDB Mahrez Grealish
    Vardy Jimenez Ings

    4.0 Cantwell Lundstram Soyuncu

    1. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Could well be.

  15. Rave_1980
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    Vardy and Maddison to Auba and H Barnes (-4)?

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Not for a hit.

      1. Rave_1980
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Thanks, I was of the same thinking, just needed to be talked down.

        1. The Units
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          I like the moves. You could just do Barnes this week as he is in fine form and frees some cash up.

          1. Rave_1980
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            Very true, just itching to get Auba in really.

    2. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      I like it

      1. Rave_1980
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Thank you.

  16. Lev Yashin

    Dodgy defence, moody midfield and a fine forward line

    Ryan
    TAA, Lund, Rico
    Salah, KdB, Grealish, Maddison/Traoré
    Auba, Jimenez, Ings

    Button, Soy, Kelly

    1) Play Maddison or Traoré
    2) Play Soy over ?

    1. LC1
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Midfield is far from moody!

      You have the exact same defenders as me and I got rid of Lund for VVD.

      Keep lineup as is.

  17. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Is Bernardo Silva a decent one week punt option to play with Aguero and KDB? Particularly with Sterling out

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

      No

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Fair enough - thanks. Cannot stretch to Mahrez

    2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Yes

  18. BucketHead
    • 6 Years

      1. Dont give a fuchs
        • 6 Years

    Hey can anyone advise me on my team. Have 1 free transfer. Am catching up the leader in my mini league and am unsure if I should make any changes or follow the transfer. Also unsure on salah or aguero as captain

    Pope
    TAA Robtertson William's
    KDB Grealish Salah Martial Traore
    Aguero Jiminez

    Subs - Mcarthy, Greenwood, Tandanga, Reid

    1. Gazza2000
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Save the FT and captain Kun

    2. Pep Roulette
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Kun(c)

      Play McCarthy in goal

      Upgrade Reid with 1 FT if you have some cash

    3. Pep Roulette
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Play Tanganga instead of Williams

  24. King Kohli
    • 7 Years

    Points prediction for this gw:

    A. Kun
    B. Salah

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

      17
      5

  25. Tinmen
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    Right last thing
    Salah or Mahrez captain ?

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

      Mahrez

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Salah for me

    2. Jealous Viper
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Like Cardiff and Huddersfield last year, i think Norwich are a great team to target for players to buy and captaincy, so I'll always lean towards whoever plays them.

    3rd Pool spot

    A. Firmino
    B. VVD
    C. Robbo

    Give your reasons for your pick!

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

      Between A or B for me. Robbo's assist threat seems to have dried up.

      Van Dijk for security of starts, value and goal threat from set pieces. Think there will be a few more 1-0 and 2-0 wins so a second attacker isn't essential.

    2. Jealous Viper
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 3 days ago

      B. Think he will be immune to the odd rotation here and there which may plague the fullbacks, great threat from corners and indirect free kicks and if Pool start to grind out wins which usually happens the closer a team gets to the finish line, could be great for bonus.

      That said, it's nitpicking really. All 3 are great options.

    3. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      It really depends if you re happy/unhappy with your defence or attack . I ve gone vvd as my defence started to look too weak and also plenty options up front with ings Jimmy auba even vardy still

      Cheers guys! It's VVD then!

    Mane's getting very cheap all of a sudden isn't he?

    Looks about to drop to 12.1,will probably make 12.0 before he's back
