Who made our 2019/20 FPL Team of the Season?

Over the last week, Fantasy Football Scout site users have been voting on their favourite Fantasy Premier League goalkeeper, defenders, midfielders and forwards of 2019/20.

Our polls have now closed and we can reveal which players have made our end-of-season XI.

Goalkeeper

There were no surprises between the posts, with Nick Pope polling over three-quarters of the goalkeeper vote.

Starting the season out at a bargain £4.5m, Pope registered 15 clean sheets for Burnley and finished as the highest-scoring goalkeeper in FPL.

His total of 120 saves was the fourth-highest in the division while nobody in the same Fantasy position came close to matching his 23 bonus points.

More than one in five of you backed Dean Henderson in our poll but the other four candidates were a long way adrift.

Defenders

Trent Alexander-Arnold ended 2019/20 as the highest-scoring FPL defender, finishing just three points short of the record that Andrew Robertson set in that Fantasy position a year earlier.

The Liverpool right-back got close to his teammate’s 2018/19 total despite registering seven fewer shut-outs.

Four goals and an astonishing 15 assists saw him finish joint-fourth in the overall standings, with no other defender, goalkeeper or forward surpassing his 210 points.

Alexander-Arnold finished top of our poll with 31.6% of the vote, one position above John Lundstram.

A £4.0m FPL defender who operated as a box-to-box midfielder, Lundstram provided better value than any other outfielder based on the points-per-million metric.

Five goals, four assists, 10 clean sheets, 15 bonus and 144 points was a superb haul for someone so cheap, with five of his appearances resulting in double-digit hauls.

Although he lost his place and became less of a regular in the second half of the campaign, Lundstram finished the season in fitting fashion with a goal on the final day.

Matt Doherty was himself a bargain buy in 2018/19 and, despite the inevitable price rise, he made our Team of the Season for the second year running.

With four goals, eight assists, 12 clean sheets and 167 points overall, the Irishman was the only non-Liverpool player amongst the top four highest-scoring defenders.

Robertson and Virgil van Dijk trailed behind Doherty in our poll, with Leicester pairing Caglar Soyuncu and Ricardo Pereira further back.

MIDFIELDERS

 1

Kevin De Bruyne always looked to be a shoo-in to make our end-of-season XI, having finished as the highest-scoring FPL asset in any position in 2019/20.

The Belgian, who started the season off at a now-unthinkable £9.5m, racked up 251 points and finished some distance ahead of the chasing pack thanks to his final-day haul.

The City midfielder started 32 of the 36 fixtures he was available for and there were 10 double-digit hauls over the course of the campaign, with his returns in Gameweeks 17 and 38+ representing high points.

Only two midfielders – both of whom were at the budget end of the scale – represented better value for money than De Bruyne (23.7) based on points per million, despite his end price of £10.6m.

What should FPL managers do with their free transfers?

Only Bruno Fernandes (8.4) averaged more points per match than De Bruyne (7.2) in 2019/20.

The inclusion of any January transfer window signing in an end-of-year XI is a contentious one but few mid-season captures have quite made the impact that the Portugal international has and he finished second in our midfielder poll.

Fernandes scored more points (117) from his Gameweek 25 debut onwards than the likes of Diogo Jota, Ismaila Sarr and Nicolas Pepe did all season, with only three blanks arriving in his 14 starts.

Six double-digit hauls were registered in that time, too, a total that no other Manchester United asset could beat across the whole of 2019/20.

Making our Team of the Season for the third straight year, Mohamed Salah‘s total of 233 points was the second-highest in FPL, despite it being his lowest since moving to Merseyside in 2017.

Nine double-digit hauls arrived in 2019/20, with one of them coming in Double Gameweek 24.

Salah enjoyed home comforts more than most and he was a reliable pick for the captaincy when at Anfield, with 15 of his 19 goals arriving on Merseyside. In only four of his 18 home appearances did he blank.

Gameweek 32+ Scout Picks focus on Arsenal, Wolves and Man United

Our second Manchester United ‘midfielder’ to make our Team of the Season will likely be a forward next season.

This was by some distance Anthony Martial’s best-ever FPL season, with the 24-year-old striker racking up 17 goals, nine assists and 200 points and finishing a clear fifth among FPL midfielders in the overall points table.

Martial’s average of 6.2 points per match was also the joint-fifth-best in the division.

Having previously had something of a reputation as being injury-prone, he also became a reliable starter after an early-season spell on the sidelines, missing only one of United’s final 29 league matches.

FORWARDS

Danny Ings more than doubled his Premier League goals tally in one fell swoop in 2019/20, finding the back of the net on 22 occasions in a superb campaign for the Southampton striker.

Ings, who finished top of our forward poll, finished the season in around 2.4 million squads and had risen in price by £1.6m – by some distance the biggest beginning-to-end price change in the game.

No other forward or indeed midfielder provided better value based on FPL’s points-per-million metric (26.7).

There were only three double-digit hauls over the course of the season but his consistency of returns more than made up for it, along with his league-best bonus points tally of 40.

The Golden Boot winner and the highest-scoring Fantasy forward of 2019/20, Jamie Vardy plundered 30 attacking returns and 34 bonus points in the season just gone.

The Leicester City forward – whose starting price was a relative bargain £9.0m – was within one point of matching his highest-ever FPL score, too, which was set in the Foxes’ title-winning year of 2015/16.

Most of the damage was done in the first half of the season: from Gameweeks 3 to 18, Vardy found the back of the net on 17 occasions and set up a further five goals.

The long-serving striker averaged 8.6 points per match over this run of games, delivering six double-digit hauls and blanking on just three occasions.

A whopping 23 of his 30 attacking returns came against bottom-half clubs, which made him a relatively safe bet for the captaincy in plum fixtures.

What's the best strategy for choosing forwards in FPL? 8

While he was never going to offer the same value he provided in his debut Premier League campaign, Raul Jimenez did score four more goals and 13 more FPL points this time around.

The Mexican, a bit like Ings, wasn’t too explosive, registering just three double-digit hauls – two of them against Manchester City – over the entirety of 2019/20.

But the points arrived on a regular basis, with his 24 attacking returns coming in 21 different games.

The Mexican started 37 of Wolves’ 38 Premier League fixtures, only being benched in Gameweek 20 when Nuno Espirito Santo’s side faced two matches in the space of 48 hours.

Jimenez made our Team of the Season for the second year running, edging out Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to take the third forward spot.

    Brentford will be doing very well to get 40 million for Benrahma now.

    1. Berbs
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Sarr will go for less. 40m ain't happening.

    2. CloudSky
      • 4 Years

      Would do well to get half of that.

  9. Sun Jihai

    Mitrovic is gonna be the new Pukki

    1. TONY123
      • 5 Years

      This year's Pukki already was last year's Mitrovic

      So what? That he's a shoe-in in our GW1 teams and does well the first 5 GWs?

  10. CloudSky

    Think I'd prefer Bournemouth and Watford in Prem over WBA and Fulham.

    1. baps hunter

      21-22

      West Brom is not the West Brom under Pulis

      Theyre a nice team plays some nice football with Bilic

      1. CloudSky
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Don't think there is one player there that's Prem quality.

        1. sunnyh
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          You could've said the exact same about Sheffield United....

          Matheus Pereira and Semi Ajayi are the standouts for me.

          1. CloudSky
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            I'm taking your word for it.

  11. Freshy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Wouldn't the land Fulham sits on be worth more than the team?

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Not now.

      Bryan probably worth 70-85 million.

  12. Zim0
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Lol Fulham celebrating like they won the league. They'll be down again in a year XD

    1. CloudSky
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      150 mil for the club, bonuses for the players, playing in Premier League. Why wouldn't they celebrate?

    2. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Celebrating their bonus and wage rises.

      1. Zim0
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Ah yes that makes sense

    3. UnitedFan
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Of course they're celebrating.

      1. Zim0

        Okay okay i regret the post as soon as i sent it :p wish there was a delete button

    Fulham had the experience of the big occasion. Brentford didn’t. Experience wins. End of.

  14. Berbs
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Liverpool considering Jamal Lewis and willing to bid £10m. Represented by same agency as TAA and Robbo.

    Via Melissa Reddy, Tier 1.

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Michael Edwards FC if he can make that happen.

      1. Berbs
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        I'd take any left footed back up at this point. Lewis is young enough to develop as a decent understudy. Robbo may finally get rests he deserves now.

        1. Rainer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Absolutely, so important when looking for maximum creativity from the full backs. Milner or Gomez when he played there this season are unbearable to watch.

          If Neco kicks on again, Virgil could be the one.

          1. Berbs
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            I'd imagine Trent and Robbo start 32-35 games. Good enough to be mainstays given upside in points potential.

    2. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      they definitely need a backup who has some decent PL experience

    3. UnitedFan
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Decent back-up potentially.

      He sure brings back the memories. Can't believe he's only 26. Remember when he was on my fpl team a while back with goal threat on set pieces.
      Might get him at some point... or not...

      1. noquarternt

    I will never understand why the team that wins the playoff final gets to lift a trophy. The team who finished 2nd gets nothing and finished above them in the table.

      Saw something in an article saying 21 August - seems late. Think it may hang on whether they wait for Europe matches to resolve themselves

      Lampard is apparently pushing for Chelsea to start late even after they lose to Real

  18. Matjes_taet

    Tom Cairney 4,5 in Template-Teams again?

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Cairney probably 5.5m.

      Harrison Reed might be 4.5m but many will want 5 playing mids.

      The return of Kamara at 4.5m

  19. The Mighty Hippo

    1. Bada Bing
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Yes, don't do it. He's gonna score a few goals but then blank for the next 10 games and get a couple of red cards to compound the misery.

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        You can always get Kamara instead

    Who would you rather get?

    Fernandes + Adams OR Ziyech + Ings

    The way I see it, I dunno if Ings is worth like 3m more than Adams.

    1. Nimby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Ziyech and Ings could be well tasty. Combined price may be lower as well.

      1. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        No way I’d put money on a prem debutant

        1. Nimby
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Well Fernandes was a prem debutant not that long ago and quickly became almost essential.

      2. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        I think the combined price will be similar.

        Fernandes 10-11 range
        Adams 5.5-6.5 range

        Ziyech 8.0-9.0 range
        Ings 8.0-9.0 range

        I really like Ziyech honestly. He's one of the few prem debutants I'd be happy to back if Chelsea have good fixtures.

    2. UnitedFan
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      First pair. Adams could have more of an impact this season and Bruno is proven over Ziyech.

    3. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Let's see if Havertz comes

  21. FPL Kaka
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Early prediction for relegation for next season for me is.....

    Fulham, Villa, Leeds

    1. Zim0
      • 2 Years

      Fulham Newcastle Crystal Palace

      1. Old Man

        Pretty sure they will be after a reliable striker.

      West Brom, Palace, Villa (if they lose Grealish)

      Fulham, West Brom, Newcastle. I did not like the look of Fulham tonight. Nasty team. Love Parker though.

    How did Kamara return to Fulham after he was banned from the club?

      Boomerang!

        1 month, 15 days ago

        Boomerang indeed. I seem to recall the police were called, Kamara was arrested and then a few days later Fulham shipped him off to Turkey.

        1. Major League Shocker
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 15 days ago

          It was only on loan though, so he returned at the end of the loan.

    Kamara starting price next season?

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      4.5-5.0

  24. Lovren an elevator
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    How about that Joe Bryan! 3 goals 7 assists and 19 cleansheets for Fulham this season....

    1. Berbs
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      That translates to 0G, 1A, 2CS in PL

      1. Lovren an elevator
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Probably translates to 1 G, 3 A and 8 cleansheets. But i get your point. If he's 4.5, he could be a nice rotation option. But my point is he could be considered decent enough to come in at 5 like Enda did, he's got good stats for a promoted defender, just like Sami Ajayi at Westbrom too

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          I don't see the Fulham defence being in any way comparable to Sheff United. I'd be looking at Leeds for that. I'm with Berbs on this. For 4.5 makeweights, I'd be looking at the likes of Brighton, Saints, maybe Palace and Newcastle. Plenty of known PL quantities at the cheaper end.

    2. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      0 clean sheets next season

    3. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Straight in at 4.0-4.5!

  25. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Think I am just going to avoid promoted players unless their is a decent CM listed as a defender @ 4.0 🙂

    1. Nimby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Yeah as if that would ever happen

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Lundstram is a legend!

        1. Nimby
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          He is a lovely boy

        2. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          He was a category error! I generally only start with promotees as bench fodder. I'm hoping for a Leeds defender at 4.5.

  26. KAPTAIN KANE

    James Ward-Prowse price next season?

    Going to make him my little dark horse differential I think.

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      He's like reverse OoP. 0 interest. 5.5m.

    2. Boywiththesoupdragontattoo
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Armstrong instead maybe?

      1. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        One to keep an eye on, certainly.

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          JWP 5.5, Armstrong 6.0. Both faintly pencilled in on my watchlist.

  27. Shark Team
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    I have noticed that if KDB was my captain for every gw I would have taken 50% more pts from my captain than what I got this year. So maybe next year is a great one to try and keep the same captain for all the gws?

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      No way that's true. 50% less is significant. I didn't have a particularly great captaincy year and I still managed 501 points (1 point short of KdB perma C)

      1. Shark Team
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        I would have TC KDB instead of Salah in gw 38

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I made a pig's ear of captaincy choices myself. This year I'll try to stick to two - KDB at home alternating with Bruno at home. Needless to say, I won't stick to it!

  28. El Fenomeno R9
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    If Sterling is 1M cheaper than KDB think i am gonna gamble,could match him in points.

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Why not both? Both are premium players for the best attack in the league.

      1. El Fenomeno R9
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Will have Salah,TAA so cant get them both

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          You can afford all 4. Just need to have a budget forward line.

          1. El Fenomeno R9
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            Will go budget forward,Adams + Mitro but it will destroy the rest of the team

          2. El Fenomeno R9
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            Maybe Salah,Sterling,Mahrez could be good and still keep some balance

        2. MosF94
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 15 days ago

          I'm considering Salah, Sterling, KDB, TAA, Robbo and nobody else over 6.5 (because I wouldn't be able to afford them)

    2. Cheeto__Bandito
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Both will have blank gameweek one so no

      1. El Fenomeno R9
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Yeah obviously we dont pick players that have blank

    3. marko_v_111
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      What ya mean could match him...when kdb loses pen sterling will outscore him

    4. Jay Jay Okocha
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      My guess is 12.5 and 12.0, respectively

  29. Cheeto__Bandito
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Teams in Europe will play their first prem game 30 days after last European game?

    Meaning United and City will probably get a blank game week one right?

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Coulb be and then a rotation filled DGW afterwards.

      1. Daniel S. - Go Havertz !!!
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Yeah I think GW 1 & 2 blanks and mega trend of WC flying in GW 3

        1. baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          I can see that happening. It would be nice to be able to avoid being with the herd, but it is probably going to be difficult. GW3 mini WC or even -8 might work.

    2. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      They will as long as they make it to the CL semi-final or EL final:

      https://twitter.com/BenCrellin/status/1287724741302853632

      If they win CL/EL, then they are in the Super Cup which means a BGW2 also.

    3. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Assuming City beat Real. Plenty fish to fry yet.

  30. Daniel S. - Go Havertz !!!
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Football trivia time.

    Best penalty takers in the world 2000-2020 (min 30 penalties):

    Arteta 86.7%
    Shevchenko 87.2%
    Guiseppe Rossi 87.5%
    Hazard 87.5%
    Ibrahimovic 88%
    Balotelli 88.4%
    R9 Ronaldo 90%
    Rivaldo 90.2%
    Noble 90.5%
    Lewandowski 91.1%

    1. Daniel S. - Go Havertz !!!
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Doosra doing well

    2. Greek Freak
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I did a quiz on the best (active) penalty takers in the Premier League about a week ago:

      https://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/2020/07/27/vote-for-the-best-fpl-goalkeeper-of-2019-20/?hc_page=1&hc_sort_by=comment_date#hc_comment_22224182

      My arbitrary minimum was 20 penalties though, so the percentages of the top ones were a bit higher.

      Jimenez, Haller, Fabinho and Jorginho were all above 95%. Noble is very impressive though given how many he's taken.

    3. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Graham Alexander? 72 from 77 if my memory serves me correctly, but some of those will be before 2000
