Scout Notes

Palace defence out of form ahead of Gameweek 36+ meeting with United

Yet another Fantasy Premier League deadline is only a day away so, with time against us, we will rattle through the main discussion points from two more Gameweek 35+ fixtures in an abridged Scout Notes below.

Watford v Newcastle United and Aston Villa v Crystal Palace are our featured games in this article.

Porous Palace

An away clash at Crystal Palace would ordinarily be a tricky test on paper.

From Gameweeks 1+ to 30+, Palace had the joint-sixth-best defensive record in terms of goals conceded and only three sides had kept more clean sheets.

Since then, however, the Eagles have lost five on the spin and conceded more goals than any other team.

Without arguably their best centre-half in the injured Gary Cahill (£4.4m) and drifting towards a lower-mid-table finish, this seems to be a good time to take on Roy Hodgson’s troops – and it’s Manchester United who face Palace next in Gameweek 36+.

Aston Villa had only scored twice in eight games before Sunday’s clash in the Midlands but they doubled that tally in one fell swoop against the Eagles.

A double for Trezeguet (£5.2m) handed Dean Smith’s side their first victory since January.

Patrick van Aanholt (£5.6m) blanked as a result of a fifth successive clean sheet loss but, as is his wont, he so very nearly popped at the other end with a late consolation, registering Palace’s only big chance of the match with a shot that Pepe Reina (£4.2m) saved.

Gayle Force

Among sub-£5.5m forwards, Dwight Gayle (£5.0m) is second only to Mason Greenwood (£4.9m) for FPL ‘form’ over the last month.

Gayle scored the opener in Newcastle United’s 2-1 defeat at Watford and has attacking returns in four of his last five starts, with his only blank coming in the 5-0 defeat at Manchester City.

The budget striker tapped in Federico Fernandez‘s (£4.6m) flick-on to give Newcastle the lead, later being denied by Ben Foster (£4.9m) and setting up Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.4m) for the Magpies’ only other ‘big chance’ of the match.

Steve Bruce’s recent change to a 4-2-3-1 has certainly led to a bit more attacking thrust from the Magpies, although no clean sheets in five matches (their previous two shut-outs were recorded against ten men) does suggest that it has come at the expense of some defensive stability.

Dawson’s Leap

Deeney on the Spot

Troy Deeney (£6.2m) emerged from Watford’s win over Newcastle with a 13-point haul, which is more than he had managed in his previous six appearances combined.

The Hornets’ striker was indebted to two penalties to end his goal drought and in truth, his threat from open play remains limited – his four shots on Saturday (two of which were from the spot) more than doubled his total for the previous five Gameweeks.

His only other clear-cut opportunity was presented to him by an awful Fernandez clearance and the mid-price striker shot straight at Martin Dubravka (£5.1m) with the goal at his mercy.

Deeney limped off towards the end but Nigel Pearson said after full-time:

Troy has what I would call a ‘grumbly knee’ that he has to manage on a daily and weekly basis. This is nothing new, it’s something which he’s come to terms with and has to manage, so you may see him with a bandage today, but it’s nothing new.

Injuries and Bans

Christian Benteke (£5.7m) will miss the remainder of the season after being sent off for violent conduct after the final whistle at Villa Park.

Jordan Ayew (£5.1m) will now presumably revert to being a central striker for the last three Gameweeks, after a spell on the right flank.

Villa lost two of their defence to injuries on Sunday, with Kortney Hause (£4.4m) pulling out in the warm-up and Neil Taylor (£4.2m) being substituted after 36 minutes.

Ahmed Elmohamady (£4.1m) was given the nod at right-back, with Matt Targett (£4.3m) making a timely return from injury to replace Taylor on the opposite flank.

Line-ups

Watford XI (4-2-3-1): Foster; Femenia, Kabasele, Dawson, Masina; Capoue, Hughes; Sarr, Doucoure, Welbeck (Gray 90′); Deeney (Cleverley 85′).

Newcastle United XI (4-2-3-1): Dubravka; Manquillo, Lascelles (Lazaro 87′), Fernandez, Rose (Krafth 79′); Schar, Shelvey; Saint-Maximin, Almiron, Ritchie (Joelinton 72′); Gayle (Bentaleb 79′).

Aston Villa XI (4-3-3): Reina; El Mohamady, Konso Ngoyo, Mings, Taylor (Targett 36′); McGinn, Luiz, Hourihane (Nakamba 80′); Trezeguet (El Ghazi 88′), Samatta (Davis 80′) Grealish. 

Crystal Palace XI (4-3-3): Guaita; Ward, Dann, Sakho, van Aanholt; Zaha, Kouyate (Riedewald 66′), Milivojevic (Meyer 75′), McArthur (McCarthy 46), Ayew (Townsend 66′); Benteke.

    C’mon Southampton!
    Hope you guys play a great game like you played against Man City.
    UTD 2-2 SOU
    Greenwood and Ings brace

    Fair play to OGS just picking his best team every game!

    1. Bruce Lee
      • 1 Year

      Explain how Lingard is not starting then?

      1. The Train Driver
        • 5 Years
        22 days, 4 hours ago

        Must be injured

      2. Forever In Our Shadow

        He’s not good enough.

      Ride til the wheels fall off which they will

      1. Catastrophe
        • 9 Years
        22 days, 4 hours ago

        Well let's see but 10 points off top 4 in October and now in pole position for 4th even 3rd so pretty happy at the moment!

    3. ClassiX

      Quite possibly some performance clause in his contract to get United into Champions league next season.

      1. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        22 days, 4 hours ago

        As if you need a clause to try to get CL..

        1. ClassiX
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          22 days, 3 hours ago

          Given where ManU were when he took over, I expect his contract may have been terminated if he didn't achieve CL in a specified time.

    4. Amey

      Attackers are getting subbed off early.
      No need to run behind ball too much with good ball playing players in the team so good possession.

      Winning games easily so no need to break a sweat ...

      Long may this continue

      1. Right In The Stanchion
        22 days, 4 hours ago

        Was much more funny when OGS was doing badly.

        Bruno saved him, without him he'd be sacked.

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          22 days, 4 hours ago

          Or he was one of the important part of the jigsaw 😉

        2. Catastrophe
          • 9 Years
          22 days, 4 hours ago

          The difference a world class player can make!!

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            22 days, 4 hours ago

            Ohh yeah

        3. Giggs Boson
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          22 days, 4 hours ago

          A manager only adds around 15% maximum. It's mostly players that make the difference.

          What Ole has got right though is recruitment, and has the improved the atmosphere massively - amongst the players and fans. That part is immeasurable.

      2. Slitherene
        • 2 Years
        22 days, 4 hours ago

        Or.. Not many options on the bench?

        1. Slitherene
          • 2 Years
          22 days, 4 hours ago

          Enough*

        2. Amey
          • 1 Year
          22 days, 4 hours ago

          There are tbh
          Mata James can easily replace Bruno Greenwood vs an easier opponent.
          (No near world class attacker though yes)

          Sancho might solve that 😉

        3. Catastrophe
          • 9 Years
          22 days, 4 hours ago

          Not blessed with an amazing bench but for the first time in a while we do have good players there - McTominay and Fred were probably our best players before the restart and Ighalo a decent option also. We certainly don't have the depth of City but getting there slowly!

    5. Giggs Boson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      22 days, 4 hours ago

      He worked them hard in pre-season, and in the training prior to their return. Looks like it's paying off.

      Ole is huge on fitness.

      1. Catastrophe
        • 9 Years
        22 days, 4 hours ago

        Yes, that's it.

  3. Cech's Magic Hat
    • 9 Years
    22 days, 4 hours ago

    Would appreciate some advice here please:

    Martinez
    TAA Doherty AWB
    Salah KDB Bruno Pulisic Foden
    Vardy Greenwood

    Button Jimenez Kiko Lascelles

    1ft, 1.0itb

    I'm considering one of:
    A. Jimi to ings
    B. Martinez to Pope
    C. Salah (due a rest?) to sterling

    Any of those look good? Any better moves available? One ML rival has ings and another has sterling so that's influencing me a bit

    1. LE CHARO
      22 days, 4 hours ago

      I would do Vardy to Ings

      1. Cech's Magic Hat
        • 9 Years
        22 days, 4 hours ago

        Could be a good idea

    2. Forgetmeknot
      • 1 Year
      22 days, 3 hours ago

      I wouldn’t do B, not worth wasting a transfer on GK (even with liv this week). I have Martinez and he has two good fixtures after

  4. Niho992
    • 1 Year
    22 days, 4 hours ago

    Come on Soton !

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years
      22 days, 4 hours ago

      Yes yes

  5. drughi
    • 10 Years
    22 days, 4 hours ago

    Suuurely Ole will rotate his squad against palace. Who will sit out ?

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      22 days, 4 hours ago

      Nope, more likely to rotate a little in the cup.

    2. ClassiX
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      22 days, 4 hours ago

      Methinks he'll rotate in FA Cup - James, Fred, Mata etc.

    3. _Ninja_
      • 9 Years
      22 days, 4 hours ago

      I think he might rest players for the fa cup game. i.e Ighalo plays the fa cup, Martial sits out.

  6. Abra Dubravka
    • 1 Year
    22 days, 4 hours ago

    2 FTs. £0.2m itb. No idea what to do. Any ideas?

    Pope (3.9)
    TAA, Doherty, Holgate (Aurier, 3.9)
    Salah, KDB, Mahrez, Willian, Bruno
    Jimenez, Greenwood (Rashford) ?

    1. Cech's Magic Hat
      • 9 Years
      22 days, 4 hours ago

      Could look to upgrade Holgate?

      1. Abra Dubravka
        • 1 Year
        22 days, 4 hours ago

        Yeah although sadly can’t afford Azpi or AWB who is only 2 defenders I’d want this week

  7. EWH2020
    • 6 Years
    22 days, 4 hours ago

    Who wins?

    A) Martial and Greenwood
    B) AWB and Rashford

    1. Goonerly
      • 2 Years
      22 days, 4 hours ago

      A

  8. LE CHARO
    22 days, 4 hours ago

    On a FH, how is she looking? Anything you would change?

    Ederson
    Doherty, Azpi, AWB
    Mané, Sterling, Fernandes, Pulisic, Foden
    Giroud, Greenwood

    Bench : Pope, Ings, Digne, Saïss

    1. drughi
      • 10 Years
      22 days, 4 hours ago

      ehhhh

    2. Goonerly
      • 2 Years
      22 days, 4 hours ago

      Looks good. Maybe consider Alonso ahead of Azpi, if we hear early team news?

      1. LE CHARO
        22 days, 4 hours ago

        Thanks. That's very much on the cards yes

    3. jamiejoe
      • 4 Years
      22 days, 4 hours ago

      Sterling

      1. LE CHARO
        22 days, 4 hours ago

        Interested to hear why. He's been rested recently and just scored a hat trick

        1. Weasel Boy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          22 days, 4 hours ago

          Fa cup

          1. LE CHARO
            22 days, 3 hours ago

            Yeah it seems to be the main worry here, but before his rest vs Newcastle, he started 4 (!!) consecutive games between GW31+ and GW33+ (incl. the FA cup tie vs Newcastle), so starting 3 in the space of 7 days would not be something surprising.

            Given how many consecutive games Jesus has started, I think he's actually much more likely to be benched in which case Sterling would be the main contender to start upfront

  9. Dynamic Duos
    • 7 Years
    22 days, 4 hours ago

    What sort of injury is bad enough for you not to continue tonight but 100% be ready for next game?

    1. Goonerly
      • 2 Years
      22 days, 4 hours ago

      Dead leg maybe?

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 7 Years
        22 days, 4 hours ago

        That will do 🙂

    2. Pépé sur le P…

      Death of a family member

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 7 Years
        22 days, 4 hours ago

        Not this

        1. Pépé sur le P…
          • 4 Years
          22 days, 4 hours ago

          Pet?

          1. Dynamic Duos
            • 7 Years
            22 days, 4 hours ago

            Not this either mate, been along time anyways mate, still refusing to have Salah ?

            1. Pépé sur le P…
              • 4 Years
              22 days, 4 hours ago

              I had him for the first time ever this season! Besides GW38 in a previous season.

              1. Dynamic Duos
                • 7 Years
                22 days, 4 hours ago

                He is essential

                1. Pépé sur le P…
                  • 4 Years
                  22 days, 3 hours ago

                  Coincides with a terrible season for me, though. Lots of people selling him. OR 1 does not own him. You are wrong 😉

          2. Amey
            • 1 Year
            22 days, 4 hours ago

            You Cruel Man !

  10. Goonerly
    • 2 Years
    22 days, 4 hours ago

    Got 2 FTs going in to next GW, who do I use it on?
    Need to get some Chelsea/City players in!

    Pope
    TAA* - Boly - Doherty
    Salah* - KDB* - Martial - Bruno
    DCL* - Greenwood - Jimmy

    A) TAA + Salah --> Alonso (if confirmed starter) + Sterling
    B) KDB + DCL --> Willian/Pulisic + Jesus
    C) Salah + DCL --> Sterling + Ings
    D) Any other?

    Let me know what you think, any thoughts much appreciated!

  11. Niho992

    Come on you mighty Liverpool B

  12. Oscar Slater
    • 5 Years
    22 days, 4 hours ago

    I'll be bench boosting this weekend. I've got thirteen pretty certain starters but alongside Salah, Martial and Bruno I've got KDB & Mahrez. I'll be taking a -4 to hopefully get fifteen on the pitch from the beginning. I'm thinking Sterling & Pulisic. Is this the percentage call or are there better options (D.Silva? Willian? Antonio? Richarlison? Son?)

    1. The Train Driver
      • 5 Years
      22 days, 4 hours ago

      Bad week to BB, but so are next 2 IMO.

      1. Oscar Slater
        • 5 Years

        BB & TC still left. Running out of time!

      Lampard

  14. Essential

    Please help me choose for the last two spots on WC

    A Ings Dilva
    B Greenwood KDB

    1. JBG
      • 2 Years
      22 days, 4 hours ago

      A

    2. Goonerly
      • 2 Years
      22 days, 4 hours ago

      Tough. Maybe B though, KDB will want to break assist record, United attack is excellent atm

  15. diesel001

    Hope it is a Man City vs Man Utd FA Cup Final. Would be good to see those two with their best lineups play each other.

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years
      22 days, 4 hours ago

      He’s doing it the right way in my opinion, starting his strongest team and then resting players by taking them off early once the game is done.

      I’d rather have a game beat then bring the big guns to try and rescue a game because I didn’t start them.

      Fair play to him.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        22 days, 4 hours ago

        *than bring the big guns on

        1. Bruce Lee

          You were right the first time...

    2. DandyDon
      • 1 Year

      They have decent rest between games fortunately. Other teams not so fortunate!

    3. Brosstan

      • 5 Years

      None of them have looked tired though

    Same Utd lineup so nothing to talk about there! Would love it if someone answered though will be a bit of a slog! Should be interesting for anyone with FH chip left.

    FH 36 Team or FH 38 Team??

    36 - 7 mil leftover(!) so could switch in Sterling or Son for DSilva.

    Ederson BOU(H) -
    Alonso NOR(H) Digne VILLA(H) Soy SHU(H)
    Foden DSilva Pulisic Richarlison Antonio WAT(H)
    Abraham/Giroud Ings BRI(H)
    Bench - Rash PAL(A) Alderweireld NEW(A) -

    38 - Tight for budget, defence quite cheap but more settled lineups and villa/bou likely relegated by then. I could switch in Firmino or Antonio for a city midfielder and pick Laporte/Mendy (as nailed a CS as I’ve seen in a while!)

    Martínez WAT(H) -
    VVD NEW(A) Holgate BOU(H) Taylor BRI(H)
    Salah De Bryune D.Silva Sterling NOR(H) Richarlison
    Lacazette DCL
    Bench - Wood/Rodriguez Egan SOU(A)

    It all hangs on how well City play against Bournemouth really who have Of course cost spurs and Leicester points in last two games. Will City B just scrape a win. Wk 38 I’m sure they will turn Norwich over easily and A team players guaranteed to start.

      I feel my team is better prepared for 36 than 38 which is why I will use fh38. I will take a gamble and lose all utd assets for 38 hoping leicester beats them and turn my attention to city treble attack treble up, richarlison and Digne and auba.

        Quite difficult to fit them all in as you can see. Feel Pool attack will still be important final week

    2. Pep bites Kun
      • 3 Years

      Definitely food for thought

  20. FDMS All Starz

    which one to do next GW? Or do 2 for a -4?
    A) Mane—>Salah
    B) mahrez—>Pulisic
    C) Jimi—>Jesus
    D) Aurier—>Azpilicueta
    1FT & 1M itb

    Patricio
    TAA - Doherty - Aurier
    Mane - Sterling - Fernandes - Martial - Mahrez
    Jimi - Greenwood

    Subs: Martins -Connolly - Kiko - Simpson

    1. DandyDon

      B

    Need a FH?

    It's now or 38 and I'm leading ML

    Patricio (Martin)
    Taa VVD Doherty (Aurier Holgate)
    KDB Salah Pulisic Foden Mahrez
    Ings Vardy (Gayle)

    1. PLerix
      • 3 Years
      22 days, 4 hours ago

      Your team is pretty good, but I’d do it to fit in Sterling and more Chelsea 🙂

      1. Stupendous
        • 7 Years
        22 days, 4 hours ago

        I'm concerned Sterling doesn't start

        Might go Foden David and Jesus

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      If I had a FH left and was leading my ML, I'd save it for GW38 and copy my nearest rival's squad.

      1. Stupendous
        • 7 Years
        22 days, 3 hours ago

        He has FH too

      2. baps sniffer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        All my rivals have FH left like I do...

    FA CUP Fixture teams & following PL fixture: (purposely ignoring Home & Away)

    LIV v ARS
    MCI v BOU
    MNU v CRY
    CHE v NOR

    With all the lineup guessing games being played out at the moment is 36+ really a good week for the FH Chip?

    1. PLerix
      • 3 Years
      22 days, 4 hours ago

      Thats why it is a pretty good week for FH.

      1. jamiejoe

        This!

    2. DandyDon

      See my post above. 38 certainly less risk I think

    3. jamiejoe

      If you need points and pick properly on Man City squad.

    No one else in my ML has captained Bruno, come on big man!

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years
      22 days, 4 hours ago

      Sorry mate , we can't be having that tonight

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      22 days, 3 hours ago

      Weird. I've got some catching up to do over rivals who had Sterling.

      Capt Bruno - but so has everyone.
      Got Greenwood - but so has everyone.
      Got Rashford - ah, only me with others having Martial or a defender.
      Need a Rashie hattie then. C'mon lad, you're due!

      1. Hryszko
        • 3 Years
        22 days, 3 hours ago

        Yeah a lot of my rivals have Bruno but none of them opted to captain him this week, a lot went for City assets, or Salah.

        So a few blanks which is nice! I've got Rashford too so i'm with you there.

    To get this gameweek:

    A) D.Silva
    B) Pulisic

    Not on a FH

    1. potatoace
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      22 days, 3 hours ago

      pulisic. But id prefer Dilva for the rest of the run in

    2. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years
      22 days, 3 hours ago

      Tough one , all I know is I have Pulisic and swapping him to Dilva 37+

  27. Og
    • 4 Years
    22 days, 4 hours ago

    Rate my Free hit team:

    Fabianski
    Digne azpilicueta wan bisaka.
    Fernandes de bruyne pulisic (c) sterling
    Jesus ings Giroud

    Mccarthy Antonio Aurier Lamptey

    Strong bench incase of rotation.

    1. Stupendous
      • 7 Years
      22 days, 3 hours ago

      Most people are using FH to get KDB out for the week

      Otherwise good I suppose

      Start Antonio regardless

      Aurier no

    2. Goonerly
      • 2 Years
      22 days, 3 hours ago

      You may need to lose Aurier, his brother's just died in France. He might not play next game..

    Hi all
    So what's the thoughts on MCY line up for gw36?

    What are the chances of the following getting 60mins or more

    Sterling
    Mahrez
    Jesus.

    4. Slitherene
      • 2 Years
      22 days, 3 hours ago

      I think I have a rough idea about the minutes the following players will play in the next GW..

      Player Likely/Unlikely
      KdB 30/60
      Sterling 60/30
      Mahrez 30/0
      Jesus 60/90
      Silva 60/90
      Bernardo 90/60
      Foden 90/60

      2. _Ninja_
        • 9 Years
        22 days, 3 hours ago

        Can't see a 90 from Jesus tbh but the rest looks good.

    5. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years

      Sterling Jesus 50%
