Scout Squad

The Scout Squad picks for FPL Blank Gameweek 28

The second Blank Gameweek of the season is upon us, with Manchester City, Arsenal, Aston Villa and Sheffield United all without a Premier League fixture thanks to the clash with the EFL Cup final.

There are still a number of appealing Fantasy Premier League assets for our panel to consider, however, in this weekly precursor to the Scout Picks.

Regular readers will know the format of this recurring feature but for the uninitiated, staff members Paul, David, Neale and Geoff each propose an 18-man squad of players for the approaching Gameweek 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 earlier-than-usual Gameweek 28 deadline at 19:00 GMT on Friday.

There are requirements for at least one sub-£5.0m goalkeeper, at least one defender costing £5.0m or less, at least one midfielder listed at £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…

Newcastle have now gone three matches in a row without scoring, which is why I’ve gone with a Burnley defensive triple-up for my Scout Squad selection.

The Clarets tempted fate a few times against Bournemouth but their upcoming opponents have the lowest goal conversion rate over their last four home matches.

Meanwhile, Ben Mee is top for shots in the box among Burnley defenders since Gameweek 24, suggesting it could be him who benefits from Newcastle’s problems fending off set pieces.

I feel the inclusion of Trent Alexander-Arnold is self-explanatory at this point so will give more detail on selecting Ricardo Pereira and Matt Doherty.

Leicester’s right-back has had more shots than any of his team-mates over the last four, while Norwich continue to struggle going forward.

Meanwhile, only Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota have had more touches in opposition penalty boxes since Gameweek 24 than Doherty among Wolves assets, and given the defensive potential on show recently, I think there’s a chance Nuno Espirito Santo’s men can frustrate Spurs’ stunted attack too.

Returning to the scene of his first-ever Premier League goal, Mohamed Salah is joint-top for shots in the box over the last four matches for fit Premier League players and has played more key passes leading to a big chance than any of his team-mates.

Meanwhile, Richarlison finds himself top of the league over that period for big chances created while sitting behind just one fit player for shots on target over their last four matches too. His link-up with Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who joint-tops the league for big chances since Gameweek 24, is proving very effective and worthy of investing in, even if it’s Manchester United next.

I think their new star man Bruno Fernandes is worth considering, as he’s on penalties and likes to shoot and play key passes regularly.

Stuart Armstrong is one of three Southampton attackers in my selection, the midfielder top of the charts for shots on target in the last four among Saints players.

Meanwhile, I’ve ranked Shane Long above Danny Ings this time around as he continues to outperform his colleague both from an underlying statistics perspective and recent form over the last two outings.

Finally, Roberto Firmino gets a stay of execution in my own FPL squad, so gets selected here. No Liverpool player has more away goals than the Brazilian this season, who was arguably unfortunate not to record an attacking return against West Ham on Monday night.

NEALE SAID…

With five of the seven £10.0m+ FPL assets either injured or without a Premier League fixture in Gameweek 28, we can spread the budget around a bit for our Scout Picks selection – so there are more premium defenders than usual in my 18-man longlist.

Matt Doherty and the in-form Wolves defence are up against a blunted Spurs attack this weekend, while Ricardo Pereira and Leicester City face a Norwich City side that has scored just twice in the last six Gameweeks.

It’s not just clean sheet potential that those two players boast, though.

Doherty, who is top for shots in the box among defenders this season, posted some eye-catching numbers in the win over Norwich last Sunday, while Pereira has had more goal attempts and penalty box touches than even Jamie Vardy over the last four Gameweeks.

Cesar Azpilicueta, meanwhile, has recorded more touches in the opposition area than any FPL defender this season.

Chelsea haven’t been able to turn some promising underlying numbers into clean sheets under Frank Lampard but totally bossed Spurs last weekend, only conceding a late consolation thanks to an Antonio Rudiger own-goal.

With the hapless Kepa Arrizabalaga now demoted to the bench, the Blues may finally deliver some long-awaited shut-outs as their fixture schedule markedly improves.

Sticking with Lampard’s troops, my selection of Mason Mount may require some explanation given the mid-price midfielder’s so-so underlying numbers and recent FPL returns.

It’s hard to find a nailed route into Chelsea’s attack with hitherto regulars Tammy Abraham and Willian perhaps no longer first-choice options, so Mount, who has started 23 of the Blues’ 27 league games this season, is about as good as it gets on that front.

I’m merely echoing Zophar’s comments in his latest Pro Pundits article when I say that Mount is more of an eye test pick than a punt based on the attacking stats in our Members Area, however.

His off-the-ball work was impressive last weekend and even when Chelsea were outclassed against Bayern in midweek, he was directly involved in seven of the Blues’ nine chances.

Elsewhere, the match on Tyneside could be a low-scoring affair, given Newcastle’s involvement.

Should there be goals, then I’ve followed up my pick of goalkeepers Nick Pope and Martin Dubravka with Ben Mee and Chris Wood, given Burnley’s strength at dead-ball situations and Newcastle’s fallibility at them.

I’ve gone with away-day specialist Roberto Firmino and the fit-again Sadio Mane as my two Liverpool attackers given Mohamed Salah’s patchy record on the road and fairly ragged performance against West Ham on Monday, while the form of Richarlison, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Bruno Fernandes is too good to ignore when we are down several viable premium alternatives who blank.

PAUL SAID…

A triple-up on Liverpool looks an obvious tactic for the reduced Gameweek, while Leicester, arguably, also merit stocking up on.

Along with the host of obvious picks, here are some of my standout options…

Ayoze Perez’s record against opponents lower down in the league makes him my pick of the Foxes midfielders for the trip to Norwich.

All seven of the Spaniard’s goals have come against opponents in the bottom half of the table – only Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, with nine and eight respectively, can better that record among FPL midfielders.

Similar to Harvey Barnes, you’d expect Perez to come back into the starting XI after he was benched against Man City last weekend.

Josh King’s return from injury could be crucial for Bournemouth at home to Chelsea.

The Norwegian has scored all three of his goals this season and supplied two of his three assists at the Vitality.

When selected, King has played a part in 56% of the Cherries’ home goals compared with the 40% of fellow frontman Callum Wilson.

King scored twice and supplied an assist in the corresponding fixture last season and while I don’t quite expect him to repeat the feat, Chelsea’s away record – one clean sheet in 13 attempts – offers encouragement to Eddie Howe’s men.

At the back, Fabian Schar also has a home record worth mentioning ahead of Newcastle’s encounter with Burnley.

The Swiss international has averaged 4.8 points per start at St James’ Park in 2019/20, producing two goals and three clean sheets over seven outings in the first XI.

At home, Schar has recorded seven shots in the box – a total surpassed by just two team-mates.

Meanwhile, the Magpies have been in resilient form in front of their own supporters, claiming a clean sheet in each of their last three at St James’ in all competitions.

GEOFF SAID…

With four teams blanking in Gameweek 28, I’ve tripled up on three sides in my selections, in addition to two defensive double-ups.

Liverpool travel to Watford so I look to Trent-Alexander Arnold, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane. The Reds are on an incredible run of form and Watford look short of confidence, having conceded nine goals in their last four matches.

Leicester, heading to Norwich on Friday night, lend my selection Caglar Soyuncu, Harvey Barnes and Jamie Vardy. I think the Foxes could run up the score a bit and they have a strong chance of a clean sheet, too, with the Canaries struggling for goals this calendar year.

I also take three from Chelsea: Reece James, Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham. Chelsea need to put a run together and, while the trio isn’t in top form, a fixture against Bournemouth could be what they need to kick into gear.

In goal, I start with Mathew Ryan, who pairs with defender Adam Webster at home against goal-shy Crystal Palace despite the Seagulls having kept only one clean sheet in the last seven home matches.

I also double on the Newcastle defence at home to Burnley, with Martin Dubravka and Federico Fernandez.

Mid-priced forwards Raul Jimenez, Danny Ings and Dominic Calvert-Lewin all have the ability and service to score and are attractive options this Gameweek and beyond, meanwhile.

Finally, Bruno Fernandes looks at the centre of everything Manchester United are doing going forward, while Nick Pope will try to keep it tight away to Newcastle.

          Lund out for a Leicester or Wolves defender?

          1. Jullepuu
              1 month, 2 days ago

              Decent shout but I already got 3 defenders for this week and I feel like an attacker could bring me more points

          2. Bodini
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            I'm in a similar position to you. My plan is to swap Lundstram out for a Wolves defender (probably Saiss) and then save some money to bring in Barnes next week in place of my fifth midfielder

            1. Jullepuu
                1 month, 2 days ago

                I'm currently leaning on doing Grealish to Barnes for this week and then Reid to Doherty for 29. Bruno and Boly could be a great combo too. Tough

            2. Ajax Hamsterdam
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 2 days ago

              Want to keep grealish ?

              1. Jullepuu
                  1 month, 2 days ago

                  Not really

                    Could you stretch to Fernandes ?

                    1. Jullepuu
                        1 month, 2 days ago

                        Yes but it doesn't leave me much to work with. Considering him for sure

                  Lund out - he has to go, bring in Saiss for value, or Doherty for money no object attacking punt.

                  1. Jullepuu
                      1 month, 2 days ago

                      Surely Reid has to go first? Not sure I want a Wolves defender for this week. Could get Doherty for 29 tho

                        Is that Winston Reid? If so then yea, I missed him, move him out first!
                        Not ideal week for a wolves defender, but its not like spurs have been ripping teams apart recently, I think wolves will give them a tough game.

                            1 month, 2 days ago

                            I already have 3 defenders for this week so Grealish could go first and then a wolves defender could come in for Reid. Tough choices

                      Seeing teams like this, I am concerned this weekend not having Vardy and Mane!
                      Looks good.

                          Its not, but not owning Vardy particularly is a cause of concern, can only hope if he does get a couple goals maddison is providing the assists!

                    Would you use FT to do:
                    A) Rico To C.Taylor, (and play instead of Dendo)
                    B) B.Willaims To C.Taylor
                    C) Hold FT

                      Getting a bit ahead of myself perhaps but from gw29 onwards would you rather have:

                      A) Vardy, Fernandes and Soy

                      KDB to Bruno if City don't have a dgw29?

                      I don't have much value tied in the Belgian. SV: 10.5m; CV: 10.7m

                        I can see the appeal, but KDB can do it against pretty much any team in the league, so wouldnt be too concerned with the tough fixtures. Plus it looks like he is on pens now as well.

                        Its a gamble, and for sure could work out, tough call. I sold KDB once already this season, and am reluctant to do it again.

                          I feel like Perez is more risky as he can blank for a while and then haul. Barnes on the other hand looks like he can get returns more consistently. I would pick Barnes but not much in it

                          Not much in it I went for Perez for potential explosion in next 2. The fun pick 😀

                        Not a clue what to do to be honest.

                        Grealish to Barnes / mount or even mooy for a one week punt ??

                        Thank you, could really use some help

                        Any ideas? Thought about-

                        Stevens > Soyuncu

                          Wait to see if traore plays tonight .

                          Have you considered tielemans ? He's more.nailed and has some.stats according to scoutcast ?

                            Do you think it’s a bad/good sign if Traore plays tonight?

                              If he doesn't start tonight I think he ll play this weekend

                              They're already through. Wouldn't read into tonight's team too much. Prob rest a good few. Be a different story if they needed a result tonight.

                        Is anything worth a hit here to play over Dendoncker??

                        Wondering who to replace Grealish with. Have 0.3 ITB, so can go for someone up to 6.7M max.

                        Who would you pick out of:
                        A) Mount
                        B) Barnes
                        C) Perez

                        And also why?

                        1. Ajax Hamsterdam

                          1 month, 2 days ago

                          I'd go for the one who you think is the most nailed

                          B - looking good stats and form-wise and didn't start last GW for tactical reasons. Rodgers turned to Barnes long before Perez when he needed to change the game suggesting he is preferred.

                          A or B. I'm not telling you why.

                          Leaning towards Barnes, Rodgers seems to have more trust in him than Perez atm

                        A. Grealish to Barnes or Tielemans
                        B. Aubameayng to Vardy
                        C. VVD to Pereira

                          A tielemans maybe as possibly more nailed

                            Hmm wow, I was actually more on C myself! The move is Mahrez + Greenwood out, Armstrong and Tammy in.
                            But maybe B is more of a wise choice..

                        Is Reece James nailed? Any idea why he didn't play in GW24?

                          I think he is first choice but Lampard does like to rotate. For the price I think I'd prefer Soy or Boly

                        Barnes or Tielemans in for Grealish?

                          Tough one . Tielemans probably more nailed but Barnes in better.form.

                          Barnes for me. 11 attacking returns vs 3, playing team bottom of the league then home to Villa and playing for a much more attacking / better team.

                        Can’t look past DCL > Vardy. I know my number 9 is in red hot form, but I can’t see him out-scoring Vardy over the next 3. Will look to reverse the tranny in 31

                          I'd wait one more.week .

                            Tempting I know, but Norwich are abysmal and I think Richarlison is the main man in our attack. He has been so good recently and should have had at least another assist and 2 bonus last weekend

                              I'm holding the transfer another week aswell.

                              DCL should also have had 1 or 2 more goals last game with 3 BPS. 🙂

                              He is just too much in form, and Vardy is way too much out of form. 🙂

                              But I see why you would do the transfer aswell! GL if you do it

                              The only decent defence Vardy faced in last 7 blanks was Liverpool's. I'm not seeing boomtime for him in so called easy fixtures ahead. He had all the hard work done in his chances v City and didn't finish, would have done so in November and December. Just doesn't look as sharp but if he scores he should go on a hot streak. I hope he comes good and I'll get him back but there's better form.options than him right now.

                        For next 5?

                        A) KDB, Greenwood, Holgate/Fernandez rotation

                        B) Mount, Jimenez, Pereira

                          Vardy Deeney Greenwood

                          (In option A Greenwood would be benched, so Deeney and Cantwell rotation)

                            Think I would try again. Don't like either of the options, though I think KDB is a must have. 🙂

                            But maybe B with: Bruno - Jiminez - Soy?

                        Is Pereira worth the £1.3m over Soyuncu?

                          I suppose it depends what you can do with that 1.3, Evans also an option and a bit more of a threat going forward for set pieces.

                            Thanks for reply. Not sure what I’d do with the saving as I’m rolling a transfer the week after so the money would just be sitting in my bank

                          More fun to own i guess. Think he will play very advanced against opposition they are facing.

                          The transfers aren't crazy, -8 is a big hit though. Also, Brighton have Palace at home this week.

                        Which def up to 5.0 would you chose to rotate with Boly?

                          You can pretty much play Boly every fixture anyway. I'd just get someone with a good fixture the week you plan to play BB

                          If you're planning to rotate, maybe Taylor from Burnley, plays 31 decent enough fixtures, play Boly most games. Soy has a good run of fixtures but seems expensive to be benching most of the time / benching headache.
