Scout Squad

The Scout Squad picks for FPL Gameweek 1

The start of the 2020/21 campaign is just days away so the Scout Squad panel reconvenes to champion the standout Fantasy Premier League assets for the first Gameweek of the season.

For the uninitiated, these picks always take the format of a ‘Free Hit’ for the very next Gameweek.

Fantasy Football Scout editor David, deputy editor Neale, video content manager Andy and Pro Pundit Tom will 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 £83m) for the weekly Scout Picks selection ahead of Saturday’s deadline at 11:00 BST.

There are requirements for at least one goalkeeper costing £5.0m or less, at least one sub-£5.0m defender, 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 Sunday.

DAVID SAID…

The inclusion of Trent Alexander-ArnoldPierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mohamed Salah largely speak for themselves so I will dedicate a bit more time to some of my other selections.

Crystal Palace were the lowest scorers in home matches last season, while only Norwich found the net fewer times than the Eagles during Project Restart, making Alex McCarthy my preferred goalkeeper for Gameweek 1. Mat Ryan has some value going forward and should make plenty of saves at Chelsea, hence why he’s my second choice.

I’m expecting Matt Doherty to go straight into the Spurs team for their meeting with Everton and, judging by his attacking mentality at Wolves, I’m expecting big things for him in north London. Jose Mourinho has improved the Spurs defence while Everton struggled for goals during Project Restart.

James Justin looks nailed-on to start against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday afternoon and offers potential at both ends of the pitch.

Likewise, Rob Holding also faces newly promoted opposition in Fulham, while Arsenal’s defence continues to improve under Mikel Arteta.

I have my concerns about the long-term viability of Tyrick Mitchell, and Palace’s injury-hit defence fared particularly poorly during Project Restart, but he seems the most likely of the £4.0m defenders to actually start in Blank Gameweek 1.

Kai Havertz and Timo Werner are my chosen options from the Chelsea attack, which looks rather promising for the new campaign.

I have also included Jarrod Bowen, as I am sure West Ham will get a good result against Newcastle. I wanted to include Tomas Soucek and/or Michail Antonio but doubts of the two players’ chances of Gameweek 1 involvement put me off at the last moment.

I am expecting big things from Harry Kane this season, based on the way he finished last season. We all agree Spurs have nice fixtures to start 2020/21 and it was their centre-forward who registered more touches in the box, shots there and attempts on target than any team-mate during Project Restart.

On the hunt for some value in attack I have chosen Che Adams. During the final three matches of last season, he outscored Danny Ings, registering superior figures for minutes per shot, minutes per big chance and minutes per shot on target than his colleague across the whole of Project Restart.

NEALE SAID…

The pre-season eye test, if that is worth anything, has shunted a few names down the pecking order or out of my 18-man Scout Squad altogether.

Harry Kane appeared sluggish for England after his period of self-isolation, Michail Antonio lacked sharpness for West Ham in their final warm-up match against Bournemouth, and Mohamed Salah has looked well below-par for Liverpool in their pre-Gameweek 1 kickabouts.

Will that count for anything when the competitive action gets underway on Saturday? Maybe, maybe not. Will my lily-livered self have the nerve to overlook the highly owned Salah in favour of Sadio Mane, as I have done in my selection above? Almost certainly not.

Gameweek 1 squads are a unique affair as there is perhaps more gut instinct going on than at any other time of the season.

We don’t know if new signings will bed in straight away, whether the end-of-season form from the previous campaign counts towards anything and, as discussed, whether pre-season displays have any bearing on what follows.

Timo Werner and Kai Havertz are two such “gut” picks. Their Bundesliga stats are impressive but there is the nagging doubt over whether Frank Lampard can seamlessly assimilate such talented attackers into what was one of the most creative teams of last season: only the top two carved out more big chances than the Blues in 2019/20 but there often wasn’t anyone reliable on the end of these gilt-edged opportunities.

Had we had a full complement of fixtures and the premium assets from both Manchester clubs playing this weekend, the likelihood is that I would have gone with tried and tested over the Premier League rookies.

Matt Doherty would be my ideal route into the Spurs defence ahead of their meeting with Everton but I am a tad concerned that he has not kicked a ball for the Lilywhites since his move south, so, having not yet heard from Jose Mourinho at the time of writing, I’ll stick with the goalkeeper with the best save percentage and expected goals prevented total in the Premier League last season: Hugo Lloris.

Obvious picks abound elsewhere but the Wilfried Zaha selection probably requires explanation.

Palace aren’t renowned for their goalscoring exploits but we have seen Roy Hodgson adopting a more attacking 4-4-2 in pre-season, with Zaha deployed “out of position” in a two-man attack.

The Ivorian found the back of the net on three occasions in the Eagles’ friendlies (which were admittedly against sub-standard opposition) and the capture of Eberechi Eze should add a bit more potency to what was a limp attack.

It’s also easy to forget that Zaha averaged over 18 attacking returns per season in the three campaigns before 2019/20.

I think Allan Saint-Maximin is possibly being oversold in the Fantasy community but, given West Ham’s continued struggles at full-back (look no further than the 5-3 defeat at Bournemouth last Saturday), I think he could still make hay this weekend.

While I’ve highlighted the pre-season woes of Kane et al, Eddie Nketiah is on a goalscoring streak after a successful international break.

He’s a rotation risk in the medium term but he seems to have curried favour with Mikel Arteta, starting in the Community Shield, so he may well get the nod at Craven Cottage against a Fulham defence with much to prove.

Finally, going back to Mane: he averaged 6.9 points per start in FPL last season compared to Salah’s 7.0, so there is little splitting the pair.

TOM SAID…

Clean sheets look quite hard to call this week.

Even Liverpool’s home tie against Leeds United is far from straightforward, but that being said, I’m more than happy to select both Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson due to their attacking threat.

I’m also backing Wolverhampton Wanderers defence, via Rui Patrício and Romain Saïss. Despite heading into the new campaign without either of last terms first-choice wing-backs, I still think a shutout could be on the cards, bearing in mind Sheffield United took the fewest shots in the division last time round.

They’re joined by Hugo Lloris, Alex McCarthy, Reece James and James Justin at the back.

Further forward, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mohamed Salah are my heavy hitters of choice, while I’m also backing Chelsea’s new arrivals.

Brighton and Hove Albion shipped 11 goals in three home games against Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United during Project Restart, while in Kai Havertz and Timo Werner, Chelsea have landed two of Europe’s hottest prospects whose Bundesliga numbers are hugely encouraging. You get the feeling both could explode, and make a mockery of their respective price tags.

I’ve also doubled up on Southampton and West Ham United’s attacks.

Saints’ away form was only bettered by Liverpool and Man City last season, while only the Manchester clubs collected more points during Project Restart. They’re up against a Crystal Palace side who have won just four games all year, which bodes well for James Ward-Prowse, who may be back on penalties, and Che Adams, who looked lively at the end of last season and bagged three goals in the final two Gameweeks.

At the Hammers, I’ve opted for Jarrod Bowen and Michail Antonio.

Newcastle United massively overperformed their metrics last season, and were really poor at defending set-pieces. I think Bowen, who will likely be on corners, could profit from those weaknesses, and in Antonio, they possess a striker who posted some ridiculously good numbers following the restart, and should keep his centre-forward spot given his performances.

The forward list is completed by Jamie Vardy and Harry Kane, who take on newly promoted West Bromwich Albion and Everton respectively.

ANDY SAID…

I think there are lots of reasons to be excited about Chelsea this season, especially if they buy a new goalkeeper. They were the fifth-best defence last season in terms of expected goals conceded (xGC) and with Cesar Azpilicueta not missing many minutes in recent seasons, there’s nothing to suggest that will stop now.

Although Michail Antonio’s sample of games is a bit smaller than most (only 1,767 minutes played last season), it’s difficult to look past his outrageous stats. Within players to play at least 1,000 minutes, Antonio was top for expected goals (xG) per 90 minutes for all midfielders last year at 0.64. In comparison, Raheem Sterling was 0.62 and Mohamed Salah 0.58.

When FPL first launched, Willy Boly was someone I wanted to avoid. It didn’t feel right backing him at £5.5m when you could get Romain Saïss (£5.0m) and Rúben Vinagre (£4.5m) for less. Fast forward a few weeks and there’s a little bit too much transfer speculation around Wolves for my liking. At £5.5m you at least get a little attacking threat and a very much nailed-on player against one of the worst attacks in the league last season.

There are rumours that Christian Pulisic might be available for Gameweek 1. Chelsea were only second to Manchester City last season for xG and when you think about the players they’ve added to their squad, there’s potential for big numbers again this year. It’s a risk starting with him, in case Lampard decides to bed him in slowly. At 0.59 expected goal involvements (xGI) per 90 minutes last season, he’s someone I want in my team sooner rather than later. No midfielder priced £8.5m or less bettered that last year outside of Riyad Mahrez.

James Justin provides a lot of upsides, but only potentially for a short space of time. We know that he’s only starting because of the injury to Ricardo Pereira, but for a Gameweek 1 punt against a newly promoted side, there aren’t many better options for the price. My only concern would be Jonny Evans missing out through injury but Leicester may still have enough for both attacking and defensive returns for the £4.5m full-back.

      So lamp says Pulisic and azi started full training yesterday they will be up for selection for Brighton but will need to be introduced in their own way

      Havertz not much said on his minutes but just that he can play multiple spots and wasNt mentioned as a problem in fitness/injury

      Ziyech won’t be fit for Brighton

      Repost to top page

      1. QUEN
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Havertz will be in my GW 1 team. Think he was being coy

        Think puli will get minutes but not a full game

      2. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Sounds like Havertz may play on the right while Ziyech is out with Mount at no.10

        1. stxrty
            2 months, 22 days ago

            Mount will be deployed at RW if anything not Kai.

        2. QUEN
          • 2 Years

          No from press conference he said he will play in the ‘same way’, so I assume the preseason team

        3. Z

      5. Zim0
        • 2 Years

        Anyone looking to get Diangana over ASM?

        1. Noah’s Ark
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Considered him myself.

        2. Z
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Diangana, ASM and Pereira....same bracket same dilema

        3. Limbo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Think I'd rather Doucoure over both TBH.

          1. stxrty
              2 months, 22 days ago

              This.

        4. Noah’s Ark
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          So Pulisic or Havertz is the question!

          1. QUEN
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            Think havertz.

            Pulisic minutes might be managed first game or so but probably not enough to make you not pick him either

          2. Z
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            Havertz so far...Pulisic will play restricted time in a few weeks

        5. moz_1983
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Anyone going for a semi-punt on Harvey Barnes? Any better options below that price bracket?

          1. THE WERNER DELUSION
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            Ayoze Perez? the same thing for 0.5 less

            1. Gabbiadini
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 22 days ago

              does Perez start, that's the question.

            2. Pukki Blinders
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 22 days ago

              Not the same thing at all, will definitely start less games

          2. Z
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            Me...i think that he will be good choice at start (no money for Vardy ofc)

        6. Bun Rab L3D2
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          We need more managers like Lampard who just tell you who if fit and who isn't. I dont expect him to reveal any part of his team but we all now know where it stands.

          1. Z
            • 3 Years

            Managers are not the problem, owners are 🙂

          Is Soucek still isolated?

              You sure? I've not seen anything from WHM (albeit just logged on about an hour ago...)

            No, he's got Noble helping him track those runners.

        8. NULL-X-VOID
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Is having Havertz instead of Son for GW1 a sound choice?

          I genuinely don't see Spurs v Everton being a high scoring game

          1. The Train Driver
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            Holgate out is a positive for Spurs..

          2. Chilli Heatwave
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            More risky of the two imo, on my watch list though.

          3. stxrty
              2 months, 22 days ago

              I can see it being 0-0 tbh. I have Kai instead of Son.

          4. Chilli Heatwave

            Those who plan to bring Bruno gw2 and de Bruyne gw3, who do you plan on bringing them in for?

                • 2 Years
                2 months, 22 days ago

                Even with Sonny fixtures?

            4. stxrty
                2 months, 22 days ago

                I'm bringing in Sterling but Auba will make way. Possibly Salah.

              Who for gw1 punt. They will likely become a straight swap for kdb/sterling

              A) havertz
              B) willian
              C) son

                2 months, 22 days ago

                I’d say Willian is the only punt out of those. Havertz or Son “safer” picks. Havertz if one week only.

              Who is Leeds starting keeper? Could they be a shout for a 4.5 keeper pick?

                • 5 Years
                2 months, 22 days ago

                Meslier and yes, I think he's the 4.5 in isolation

                2 months, 22 days ago

                Meslier

                Most seem to be avoiding either due to fixtures or thinking that Leeds will be more attacking (more like a Southampton than a Sheffield United). Or just preferring Ayling/Dallas as a route into Leeds' defence.

              Do we expect Doherty to walk straight into starting lineup?

                He should do, but don’t trust mour to not just stick with Aurier for the first few games. I’ve gone davies and saving the money

                  Willing to take the risk I think. Started training on Wednesday, game only on Monday

              What do you guys think?
              McCarthy (Nyland)
              TAA, Coady, Egan (Walker-Peters, Mitchell)
              Havertz, Salah, Auba, Bergwijn, ASM

                Slightly off template. Berg would worry me personally.

                Liking the fact you are off template like me.

                Agreed on Bergwijn though, not sure on him.

              Starting to like this:

              McCarthy
              Trent, Saliba, Justin
              Auba (C), Salah (VC), Havertz, Son, ASM

                I like it. Hopefully Brewster gets a transfer and you get to make use of him as well.

              Which rotating pair would you prefer?

              A) Egan + KWP

              B) Justin + Charlie Taylor

              B will allow Ramsdale instead or McCarthy btw

            14. Manani

              I assume from Lampard comment, that means Pulisic 60mins? (or as a sub??)

                Yeah I’d think so.

                  • 2 Years

                I'm worried the 90 could be split between him and Havertz

                1. stxrty
                    2 months, 22 days ago

                    More like him and Rubes/Mount/CHO.

                  • Manani
                    • 9 Years
                    2 months, 22 days ago

                    don't think they play same position?

                    1. Von Lipwig
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 2 Years
                      2 months, 22 days ago

                      Kai can play the wing, but not his best position, so maybe it is unlikely he'll play his first game there

                2. Jimmers
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 10 Years

                  Toss a coin. Going to be managed back so could be either

                • 2 Years
                2 months, 22 days ago

                Did anyone watch Everton pressers?

                Did they say about Rodriguez starting / time at training etc

                • 5 Years
                2 months, 22 days ago

                Shaw or Williams is likely to start at LB for Mutd?

                  • 1 Year
                  2 months, 22 days ago

                  Shaw is first choice with the occasional rotation

                • 2 Years

                Please pick two of:
                A) Son
                B) Ali
                1) Puli
                2) Havertz

                GW2, one of the two will prob become Rashford.

                Currently on AB, but don't like the double up and sounds like Puli and Havertz will play.

                Is it worth going no attacking Spurs from the start?

                Perceived low scoring game v Everton
                Europe
                Soton away
                They’re mostly planned make weights for United and City in game weeks 2 and 3 anyway?

                  Maybe.

                  But I got 2 of them atm - Kane and Alli

                    I have Kane at the moment but looking at downgrading to get Chelsea mid straight away to save an FT for Bruno in GW 2

                    1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
                      • 8 Years

                  2 months, 22 days ago

                  Yeah am avoiding for those reasons. May look to jump on from GW5, a nice run then. Absolutely valid to ignore them for the moment.

                  Yes, Kane at 1.0 more than Werner and 1.5 more than Martial is not for me.

                  2 months, 22 days ago

                  Why a low scoring game against Everton? They conceded the 8th most in the prem last season.

                Going for a front 6 of Salah/Auba/Ward-Prowse/Norwood
                Werner/Vardy
                and hoping for an opening gameweek penalty bonanza!!

                    If they've just spent £30m+ on him and the other options are Davis and Samatta, what do you think?

                    Yeah except that Wesley may provide competition when back from injury. Difficult to know at this point what will happen.

                  Crazy to have Brewster on the bench, iam not keen on having more than 2 Liverpool players before GW6? Hoping for a loan to Sheffield

                    Yes I have also got him and playing only 2 strikers with the hope that he would get his loan move

                  Robo, Salah, Alli and Wilson

                  V

                  Doh, Havertz, Fernandes and Ings

                  So tempted by the second option
