Scout Picks

Premium midfielders with appealing matches headline Gameweek 26 Scout Picks

We’ve gone big in midfield and relatively light in attack for the Gameweek 26 Scout Picks, which may raise an eyebrow or two.

As usual, we deliberated over the Scout Squad submissions made by David, Neale, Paul and Geoff over the last few days before coming up with the final team.

We shape up in a 3-5-2 formation, with our team coming well inside the allotted budget of £85.0m.

GOALKEEPER

No goalkeeper received unanimous support among our Scout Squad panel but Alex McCarthy did get three votes ahead of Southampton’s clash with Burnley. The Clarets are in the bottom three for attempts on goal and shots in the box in away games and ranked 20th for shots on target. Southampton, meanwhile, have allowed fewer attempts on goal than all teams bar Manchester City over the last six Gameweeks.

DEFENDERS

All three of our defensive picks this week received universal backing from our Scout Squad panel.

Nine clean sheets in ten matches is reason enough to back a Liverpool defender in Gameweek 26, with Trent Alexander-Arnold‘s assist potential – he has already matched his total number of attacking returns from 2018/19 – another string to his bow. The Canaries have allowed more crosses per home game from their left flank – i.e. Liverpool’s right – than any other club this season.

While Bournemouth have admittedly 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. Sheffield United have kept clean sheets in five of their 12 games at Bramall Lane, with only Liverpool conceding fewer goals on home soil.

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. Lucas Digne, therefore, is our Everton representative, not least because 65 of his 81 FPL points have arrived in home fixtures.

MIDFIELDERS

How many top 10k managers played the Triple Captain for Double Gameweek 24?

Mohamed Salah, the leader in our captaincy poll, has registered 16-point hauls in each of the last two Gameweeks and averages 9.2 Fantasy Premier League points per match in 2020 so far. It has to be said that Salah hasn’t been prolific on the road this season, scoring only two goals away from Anfield – although he has supplemented those strikes with five assists. Salah bucked the trend in his last away outing, however, racking up 14 points in Liverpool’s 2-0 win over West Ham United. Norwich have shipped 25 goals in 12 home fixtures this season, meanwhile.

Manchester City’s home game against West Ham is arguably the standout fixture of Gameweek 26, with Kevin De Bruyne‘s security of starts – he has made Pep Guardiola’s starting XI for 17 league matches in a row – a big draw given the unpredictability of Guardiola’s selections elsewhere. David Moyes’ troops have conceded 14 big chances and ten goals over their last four matches. De Bruyne tops the league for key passes in his last four, meanwhile.

With Aston Villa the only side to have conceded more big chances than West Ham since Gameweek 21, Son Heung-min is our third premium midfield option selected. The South Korean may be in a more central role at Spurs following Steven Bergwijn’s arrival and he has fired 11 shots in the box in the last four Gameweeks since Harry Kane was sidelined.

Sergio Aguero was a first-choice pick for three of our Scout Squad but, omitted by Paul and with other £10.0m+ options receiving universal backing, the Argentinean was a luxury we simply couldn’t afford. Instead, we turn to Riyad Mahrez as our second City representative. 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.

We’re gambling on Graham Potter’s unpredictable team selection as we take a punt on Leandro Trossard extending 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. Trossard has averaged 5.1 FPL points per home appearance.

FORWARDS

Crystal Palace are without a clean sheet in nine Gameweeks, so Dominic Calvert-Lewin has a chance to continue his fine form in the Carlo Ancelotti era. The Everton striker is joint-second for big chances when all FPL assets are filtered by their last four matches.

Danny Ings may have blanked for three Gameweeks in a row (one of his run-outs coming off the bench, in mitigation) but there is little wrong with his underlying stats, with the Southampton striker joint-third alongside Calvert-Lewin for shots in the box when players are filtered by their last four matches. The fact that he has racked up those attempts in just 270 minutes of football (out of a possible 360) makes that an even more impressive statistic. Ings has scored in five of his last seven home fixtures.

SUBSTITUTES

No goalkeeper has kept more league clean sheets than Dean Henderson this season and the Sheffield United shot-stopper was the first-choice pick for three of our Scout Squad panel ahead of the Blades’ clash with Bournemouth, who score at a rate of less than one goal per game away from home in 2019/20.

Mason Holgate is an ever-present under Ancelotti and David was keen to see us double-up on the Toffees, with Palace’s shot-shy attack visiting Merseyside.

Jack Stephens was Geoff’s preferred Southampton option, having recorded three assists and three clean sheets in the last ten Gameweeks.

Watford forward Troy Deeney – third for xGI among FPL forwards since Nigel Pearson took charge – this weekend faces a Brighton and Hove Albion defence with only one clean sheet to their name in 14 matches.

      Decent.

  3. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years

    I'm tempted to do a -8:

    Ryan > McCarthy
    Lundstram > Stevens
    Masuaku > Van Djik

    Yay or nay?

    1. luk46
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Just Masuaka > VVD for now?

    2. JabbaWookiee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Why not just do masuaku to VVD?

    3. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      At both - because Ryan is trash, and Lundstram is dead weight.

      1. JabbaWookiee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Neither are that pressing as to warrant a hit, let alone 2 imo. Beware of over-management

  4. FPL Kakarot

    Just compared Mahrez and Aguero's home form on the members area, very interesting if you haven't yet

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Kun is odd home and away this time - his away stats are better if only marginally. But then I checked his actual returns and 15 of his 16 goals have been against bottom 12 sides

    1. LE CHARO

        Plan looks good short term, but you'll probably need KDB back at some point.

    2. MARVELLUS

      Hmmmmm, go double SHU defense, or drop Henderson for McCarthy?

        what's ITB?

    14. petergriff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Anyone think Sunday's games may be under threat from the weather?

      1. Klaren
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        If you mean the games being called off, no chance. Maybe more difficult pitch conditions than usual if there is heavy rain but doubt that it will severely impact the match.

      2. _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Its possible, City at home to Sunderland was called off 5 or 6 years ago due to high winds.

        1. _Ninja_
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Called off if "the safety of those in, around and travelling to the stadium complex cannot be guaranteed".

      3. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        If called off would be for crowd safety- not the pitch conditions. Has to be unlikely although it does seem severe storm so just need to wait and see

        1. petergriff

          • 10 Years

          Thanks. Not insignificant travel for the away fans to both games.... i might not get 4 MCY+ SHU on WC, maybe just 3.

    15. HonestBlatter

      Vardy and Tammy --> Aguero and Martinelli with 2 FTs?

      1. COLLIN QUANER
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Why not. Aguero will outscore Vardy and Tammy easily this week

        1. HonestBlatter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Not sure if Martinelli keeps starting

          1. COLLIN QUANER
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Good point. I have no idea.

            Whatever you choose to do, good luck.

            And put the armband on Aguero.

          2. My heart goes Salalalalah

                He is apparently being nice and cooperative or something about someone else taking over his spot, may push him to play better

            If you haven't wildcarded yet then idk about A, maybe just wait? I would be surprised to see Lundstrum even play 60 min, so B

              All chips in hand except TC. I used my first WC in GW20... 🙂

            Any thoughts on who to bench? Can play 2 of 4
            1. Traore
            2. Grealish
            3. Fleck
            4. Calver-Lewin

              1 as hes a doubt. If fit then probably 3.

            Anything worth a hit or gtg? Next week DCL to Jimenez

              Vardy to Kun. Is it doable?

              I'm considering taking a hit this gw...

              Sterling & Vardy to Son & Kun + one of the three moves from the post you commented above. Current team:

              Ryan
              TAA Stephens Lundstram
              Salah Sterling* KDB Grealish
              Vardy Ings Jimenez

                11.6 so not in my case? I can get Mahrez for Martial or Son but then I am short off cash for Raul next week.
                Your moves are great , captain Kun?

                1 month, 28 days ago

                I lost faith in Vardy and moved to Aguero.. Probably not worth the hit unless you want to captain Aguero

              2 questions:

              1) Why are there no Burnley defenders in the watchlist (but Pope is 2nd)?
              2) Who would you pick out of Taylor and Lowton?

              1. chudleighcannons
                  1 month, 28 days ago

                  1) I think there are just better defenders out there who can keep clean sheets AND also provide attacking returns
                  2) Thought about both when I wildcarded last week but went with neither... sorry can't help on that

                  1 month, 28 days ago

                  1) I guess because Pope is the better option because none of the defenders have any attacking potential to speak of, so 6 seems to be their ceiling, unlike Pope's.

                  2) Again, no attacking potential so toss a coin. Most people say Taylor but I don't know why, perhaps because Lowton missed some games recently?

                1 month, 28 days ago

                Best option?

                A) Gomez, Boly, Enda Stevens
                B) VVD, Lascelles, Egan

                I got 1.2 itb with this draft. Should I spend it somewhere, or just save it?

                Henderson - McCarthy
                TAA - Lascelles - Stevens - Stephens - Boly
                Salah - Son - KDB - Hayden - Traoré
                Firmino - Ings - Jiménez

                …alternatively, I have a triple City draft:
                Henderson - McCarthy
                TAA - Lascelles - Stevens - Stephens - Boly
                Salah - Mahrez - KDB - Hayden - Traoré
                Agüero - Ings Jiménez

                Thoughts?

                a) Ryan to McCarthy (have Stephens)
                b) Lund to other SHU def
                c) Save

                  ive been looking at both of those all week.

                  Think im going to do Ryan to Pope and see what happens with Lund. If Lunny doesn't play, he goes next

                    Hmm, hadn't considered Pope. Definitely an option, cheers.

                Should I do Mane and Maupay to Son and Ings for free??

                  Just Maupay to Ings.

                  Please help below, thanks.

                    Just Maupay to Ings
                    Mane is a nice differential this week

                  Which combo is better for a WC?

                  A) Mahrez and Son

                  B) Kun and Alli

                4. Gentle_Turks

                  1 month, 28 days ago

                  Chasing. Worth a hit for a Martial to Mane punt? Would give a double up with Salah which I had planned to do from next week (and might end up taking a hit next week anyway to get it).

                  1. Greek Freak
                    • 4 Years
                    1 month, 28 days ago

                    Sure, but there's no way to know whether Mane will be fully fit or not ahead of Norwich, that's the only downside. How about a punt on a City mid?

                  2. Klaren
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 2 Years
                    1 month, 28 days ago

                    I wouldn't do it as Mane might get limited minutes this GW as he is just back from injury and will be playing Atletico 3 days after.

                    Just do it for free next GW.

                    A hit for a player who's flagged? Surely not.

                    Will Mane definitely play?
