The Scout Squad picks for FPL Gameweek 3

The Scout Picks ‘prequel’ sees our four-man panel propose a long-list of the standout Fantasy Premier League assets for Gameweek 3.

For those who are new to this feature, Fantasy Football Scout editor David, deputy editor Neale, video content manager Andy and Pro Pundit Tom each put forward an 18-man squad of players for the coming Gameweek and explain their notable inclusions and omissions below.

The 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 Friday.

DAVID SAID…

I have been unequivocal in my backing of Emi Martínez in recent days following his debut for Aston Villa. I think he is comfortably the best £4.5m goalkeeper right now, combining his excellent Project Restart saves record (28), with Aston Villa’s recent defensive improvement. I am expecting the Villans either to keep a clean sheet at Craven Cottage or, if they don’t, Fulham’s busy attackers will present the former Arsenal man with plenty of opportunities for additional points.

Lucas Digne could be a key man for Everton this week. As captaincy writer Jan Sienkiewicz pointed out in his most recent article, Crystal Palace have proved weakest on their right-hand side recently. Manchester United were too unprepared for the season to cause any issues there during Gameweek 2, but Everton are a different animal right now. No player received more passes in the final third than Digne in their 5-2 win over West Bromwich Albion so if the Toffees can get him on the ball, it could cause the Eagles some issues on Saturday afternoon.

Wolves’ defence may have been picked apart by a re-shaped Manchester City team on Monday night, but they are still one of the Premier League’s best defences since Gameweek 25 of last season. I would love to be able to select Ruben Vinagre ahead of a Gameweek 3 trip to West Ham but that would be dependent on a very specific injury update from Nuno Espirito Santo on the injured Marçal. Therefore, I’m playing it safe with Romain Saïss, who has more touches and shots inside the box of any Wolves defender in 2020/21.

While I am not completely convinced by Leeds’ defence just yet, I think a trip to Sheffield United represents their best chance of keeping a first clean sheet of the campaign. The Blades are yet to trouble anyone’s back-line this season and looked questionable defensively themselves. I’ve gone with Stuart Dallas over Luke Ayling, purely based on more touches inside opposition boxes for the former so far this season.

Despite Arsenal’s recent defensive improvements, I think Mohamed Salah will be back in the goals on Monday night. 65.5% of his attacking returns came at Anfield last season, including two goals against the Gunners.

Kevin De Bruyne’s new number 10 role appears to have already made him a better Fantasy asset than last season. It is early days, of course, but after just one game, he is in the division’s top four for key passes and only four players have registered more shots on target. And that was recorded against the Wolves defence, which has been incredibly solid for some time. On that basis, it doesn’t even matter who Manchester City face next… expect big things from Pep Guardiola’s penalty taker.

I had no choice but to include Son Heung-min after he scored four times in Spurs’ 5-2 win at Southampton. However, this selection does come with the slight caveat of where Jose Mourinho deploys him against Newcastle. Under the former Chelsea boss, Son has mostly been used as the left-winger in a 4-2-3-1 when Harry Kane is fit and largely suffers because of it. But operating in a slightly more central role at St. Mary’s and facing a high-line, the South Korean was on fire. If Mourinho plays him through the middle again, we could be in for another big haul for Son.

Kai Havertz owners, myself included, have had a frustrating start to the season, but now is his time to shine (hopefully). In the first two matches of the campaign, I have watched the German international ghost into pockets of space against both Brighton and Liverpool – there has just been nobody to find his insightful runs. He has also been shifted about the Chelsea team across those games, first as a right-winger, then as a false-nine. Then, finally deployed as a number 10 against Barnsley, he came to life, scoring three times. No team has conceded more shots than West Bromwich Albion in the first two matches of the campaign, so provided Chelsea can get Havertz on the ball, and get Christian Pulisic or Hakim Ziyech into the team too, he should reward his patient owners.

Meanwhile, Timo Werner should also benefit from the Baggies’ defensive issues so far this season. He has already won two penalties in as many outings, the same number Slaven Bilic’s men have given up.

Daniel Podence has the potential to be a useful cheaper midfielder based on his initial performances in 2020/21. With an assist in both games, he has created more big chances than any colleague and has been unfortunate not to score. Despite the signing of Nelson Semedo, he should hold off competition for his place for at least one more week based on merit thus far.

As has been mentioned before, when Gabriel Jesus is nailed-on to start, he is a great Fantasy option. Thanks to De Bruyne’s new role, he was a busy part of Manchester City’s attack on Monday, deservedly getting on the scoresheet after Rui Patrício had mostly kept him at bay.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Ollie Watkins are my cheaper strikers for Gameweek 3. The former is an obvious choice based on his form and underlying statistics, while Fulham’s defensive issues thus far should be perfect for the pace and power Watkins can offer for Villa.

NEALE SAID…

This was perhaps the toughest Scout Squad selection of the season to date, with a so-so set of fixtures and last weekend’s goal bonanza clouding my thoughts.

Questions over defensive competency and confidence have to be asked of a number of teams after Gameweek 2, while separating the “flash in the pan” attacking assets from those who can sustain their output is an ongoing assignment.

Son Heung-min, for example, won’t score four goals against Newcastle United this weekend. Steve Bruce may be maligned by some sections of the Magpies’ support but he is savvy enough not to take a leaf out of Ralph Hasenhuttl’s suicidal playbook when his side head south on Sunday. Saying that, this is not the backs-to-the-wall Newcastle of yesteryear and they will show enough attacking ambition to give Son sufficient space to carve out a chance or two.

Staying with the Lilywhites, Matt Doherty has done little so far to warrant my interest in him. But having seen the joy that Tariq Lamptey got down Newcastle’s left last weekend, with the attack-minded Jamal Lewis not helped by a half-arsed Allan Saint-Maximin, then I’m willing to give the former Wolves wing-back another shot.

I remain to be convinced that Kevin De Bruyne is going to start every game as a number 10 after Monday’s win over Wolves, as this is a tactic Pep Guardiola has frequently reserved for the “tougher” games.

With David Silva gone and Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan sidelined, however, perhaps Guardiola will stick with that 4-2-3-1 set-up for now – especially if he still sees Phil Foden more as an option on the flanks rather than as a number eight.

Arsenal funneling most of their play down the left – and possibly pushing Trent Alexander-Arnold back, as happened in Gameweek 1 – convinces me to go with Andrew Robertson, while Leeds United’s vulnerability from that same flank and over-achievement in terms of goals scored has led me to a curveball pick in the form of George Baldock.

An absence of Everton assets is probably the main surprise in my selection but I am indirectly paying them some deserved respect by nominating Vicente Guaita – I can see the Palace shot-stopper racking up the save points when the trigger-happy Toffees visit Selhurst Park, even if Carlo Ancelotti’s side do breach the hosts’ defences.

A word on Jimmy Dunne, too. With James Tarkowski nursing a reported toe injury that may or may not be shorthand for “I want a move elsewhere”, £4.0m-rated Dunne could offer us a cut-price route into the Burnley defence in the short term.

While the Clarets’ injury woes perhaps weakens their clean sheets prospects, Sean Dyche proved adept at cobbling together a competitive XI after the summer restart when his side were hit hard by unavailability.

Dunne also seems to offer a bit of threat, registering five penalty box touches and two chances against Leicester last Sunday – one of which found the back of the net.

TOM SAID…

A home tie against Arsenal sees Liverpool assets take the top spot in two categories, which may surprise a few.

However, the Gunners were again outshot at the weekend, this time by West Ham United, by 14 to seven. It wasn’t a one-off either. It’s been happening more often than not since Mikel Arteta was appointed, and despite defensive improvements since moving to a back three, I still think Liverpool will have too much for them and record a comfortable home win on Monday night.

My picks, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Mohamed Salah, already lead the way in their respective positions for shots, while Liverpool have given up just one big chance so far this season – a penalty at Stamford Bridge.

With arguably the standout fixture of the round, I’m also backing Tottenham Hotspur, but maybe not to the same extent as others. Despite comfortably beating Southampton in Gameweek 2, let’s not forget they were poor heading into half-time and failed to register a shot till Son Heung-min’s equaliser just before the break. In the second half, Saints high defensive line gifted them another four goals, but on Sunday, I don’t expect Newcastle United’s backline to be quite so obliging, which is why I rate Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea’s attacks higher.

James Rodríguez was a bit good on Saturday, wasn’t he? If he ends up on penalties, he’s going to be hard to ignore. I’m also expecting Lucas Digne, who created five chances against West Bromwich Albion and whipped in a massive 13 crosses, and Dominic Calvert-Lewin, to provide a source of points at Crystal Palace.

Elsewhere, I’ve included Kevin De Bruyne, who looked sharp in a more advanced role at Molineux, teammate Gabriel Jesus, Chelsea duo Reece James and Timo Werner, plus Wolverhampton Wanderers assets Rui Patrício, Romain Saïss and differential Daniel Podence, whose pathway to the starting XI, at least for now, looks clearer now Diogo Jota has departed for Liverpool. 

Savings will be needed with so many premium options selected, which is why I’ve turned to Burnley and Aston Villa, who both look good for bargain hunting this week. Charlie Taylor and Chris Wood, who has scored in each of his last four starts, look particularly enticing, while Emiliano Martínez looks the pick of the £4.5m keepers right now.

ANDY SAID…

Chris Wood is probably one of the most un-sexy picks in all of FPL which is why he often gets overlooked. But already against Leicester, he’s shown what he can do with two big chances and a non-penalty expected goal (nPxG) total of 0.65. No forward under £7m had a higher nPxG than Wood last season, and he’s up against a side that has just shipped goals for fun.

I’m still unsure about what to make of Sheffield United defensive assets this season. My instinct is they’ll be worse than in 2019/20 but it’s been hard to tell after a good Wolves performance and a match down to 10 men. Leeds have already scored seven goals in just two Gameweeks, but that’s come from just 1.69 xG which is the fifth lowest in the league; even Marcelo Bielsa has commented on the high conversion from limited chances. This is why both Aaron Ramsdale and Chris Basham are in the squad.

As well as stats, I’m looking at player sharpness this early in the season. I don’t think there have been many better opening matches than Manchester City’s performance versus Wolves. Both Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling looked sharp and it’s hard not to include them. Leicester may have Jonny Evans back but City will have too much for them and it’s hard to leave out the main goal threat (Sterling), and the penalty taker (De Bruyne).

I was pleasantly surprised to see Reece James start for the second match in a row and am hoping this is a start of a continued run of matches with César Azpilicueta potentially being given more of a squad role. With a new goalkeeper arriving at Chelsea, it may not be long until we see clean sheets return and for £5.1m James represents something of a bargain when you look at his attacking potential as well.

THE COMMUNITY CHAMPION

Each week, one of the Fantasy Football Scout community takes on the Scout Picks by pitting their chosen XI against ours.

The community member who beats our picks by the biggest margin over the campaign will win a £100 Amazon Voucher and a place in our Moderators and Contributors League for the following season.

They’ll have to go some distance to beat last week’s champion: AA33 walloped the Scout Picks 96-43 and his 53-point margin is now the benchmark.

Our next Scout Picks article on Friday will have further details on who is representing the community this week.

    How's this looking? - had to use wildcard due to sending offs and players not playing

    Mendy-Nyland
    Lamptey-Digne-Castagne-Mitchell-Dunne
    Zaha-DeBruyne-Son-Rodriguez-Podence
    Kane-Vardy-Mitrovic

    Thinking about getting Semedo or Ake in for castagne

      i'd be worried about leaving points on bench each week
      I wouldn't go with vardy, but everything looks ok

      1. clarkey_2000
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 22 days ago

        think it would mostly be switching podence and mitrovic, feel like having a good bench might be more useful this year with covid and spurs/city having ridiculous run ins rotation might happen a lot.

        tbh I'm surprised so few people have vardy, last years golden boot and pens for a side pushing top 6.

    2. The Mandalorian

    3. St Pauli Walnuts
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 22 days ago

      Not a fan tbh mate. Why do you need 8 attackers? Downgrade Vardy and upgrade Digne to TAA. Also you could feasibly have no defensive cover at all in a few weeks with two 4 mil defenders that aren't nailed.

      Ake far from nailed yet either as City highly likely to sign another CB.

  6. mattk lfc
    • 6 Years

    Anyone eyeing TAA and Robertson double up on WC?

    1. Tony Two Tone
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 22 days ago

      Too expensive for me. I doubled up on Gomez and TAA last season, but that was when they looked solid. I'd leave it until they have better looking fixtures from a defensive standpoint, and or start getting clean sheets regularly. There's so many good options in midfield and attack that going over the top with defence at the minute seems like a waste, at least to me.

    2. The Mandalorian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 22 days ago

      Yes

    3. kevchenko
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      I have that at the moment. I don't really understand why it isn't more popular unless people have 3x premium mids.

      1. El Presidente
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 21 days ago

        Because its really expensive and atm not a clear cut plus... people always mention the long-term benifits etc, but its really hard to hold when its so expensive, their defensive line does not look solid and there are so many good options both in defense and in midfield...

    5. Tinfoil Deathstar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 22 days ago

      I'm going for this. Thiago was spraying balls out to both in the second half v Chelsea, so that will only help their attacking returns. Also can't be bothered wasting hits on defenders and those two will likely get close to 200 points - which at 7.5m/7m is an excellent return.

  7. Tony Two Tone
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 22 days ago

    Any thought on whether Frank will throw Mendy straight in on Saturday, or will he likely let him have at least a weeks training before handing him the gloves. The way Kepa is playing it must be tempting to throw him in, but I suppose the sensible thing to do would be to give him time. No point affecting the confidence of a new keeper if he isn't ready and then makes a mistake on his debut. Plus Chelsea are playing West Brom so they're unlikely to be tested that much, at least in terms of the final result.

    1. Tinfoil Deathstar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 22 days ago

      Will surely throw him straight in. Kepa is an utter liability atm for Chelsea.

    2. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 22 days ago

      Hopefully straight in. Kepa is affecting our performance -now-.

      RIP that band-aid off and chuck on the new keeper. If it doesn't work out, you've still got a performance that is not worse than Kepa's.

      Having someone else in goal than Kepa will undoubtedly improve the rest of the team's mentality, whether the keeper performs better or not. At this point Kepa's performance is one factor; the other is simple the case it is Kepa. Trust and reliance on him is gone.

    3. St Pauli Walnuts
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Getting to the point where he'd have to throw the kitman one if they hadn't of signed Mendy. Yes.

    Salah vs KDV for (C) is hard...Arsenal can keep it low scoring game,tempted by KDB(C)

    1. Tony Two Tone
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 22 days ago

      Citeh looked very, very good against obviously a very good Wolves side, and half their players aren't even match fit, while another few are self isolating if I'm not mistaken. It also seems like KDB will be playing in that more advanced role at least in the short term. As if always the case with Pep it's very hard to predict his tactics in even the medium term in fairness. Saying all that I wouldn't be surprised if Salah gets double digits against the gooners. It could be one of those weeks where they score around the same given their form and being at home. In that case it's just your preference.

    WC: 4-5-1
    Ryan
    James, Justin, Saiss, Mitchell
    KDB, Sterling, Salah, Mane, Burke
    Jimenez

    4.0, 4.0,4.5,4.5

    DCL over Rodriguez on WC right?

    1. Tony Two Tone
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 22 days ago

      I'd get both if you can afford it, but perhaps you were implying that you can't by making it a choice.

    2. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 22 days ago

      For me, yes.

      James is quality, but he plays deeper than Richarlison/DCL. Both of those are forwards so any goals from them gobbles up the BAPs - as does a clean sheet or attacking involvement from Digne/Keane/Mina.

      He'll tick over but I think he needs to continuously get goals and assists to be worth holding on your team. He makes everyone around him better.

  11. liamjames89

    A - Son, DCL
    Or
    B - Jiminez, Rodriquez

    Which one guys? Thanks.

    1. Blurryface2
      • 1 Year

      I would want both Jiminez and DCL but would choose B

        Thanks!

    2. Tony Two Tone
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 22 days ago

      You can't go far wrong with either choice, but Wolves's fixtures are crazy good. If you haven't got any other Wolves attackers I'd go B.

      1. liamjames89
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 22 days ago

        I actually have Podence as well...so maybe A is a better option.

        1. Tony Two Tone
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 22 days ago

          Personally I have Podence, Jimenez and Rodriguez, but it's all down to personal preference and how they fit in on price with the rest of your squad.

    On a WC, too soon to add chilwell? It’s ok if he doesn’t play a game or two I just don’t want to come out of a WC planning a D transfer within a short time.

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 22 days ago

      A week or so too soon. If you're dead set on getting him in now, don't care about anything else, and are happy to bench him for 1-3 GWs or so - then just pop him in now.

      Not the route I would go, but I understand your reasoning.

    any thoughts on this selection?

    Ryan (McCarthy)
    James, Digne, Saiss (Dunne, Mitchell)
    KDB, Salah, Son, Rodriguez, Podence
    DCL, Jimenez (Brewster)

    with 0.6 itb

      Don't need two playing keepers. Set and forget on Martinez or Ryan. Daft to leave 0.6 ITB with two 4 mil defenders both of which could feasibly lose their place soon. You could easily get TAA or Rob into that team over Digne with a few tweaks.

    Barnes and Mitrovic or Foden and Wood (have KDB in also)

    Is James nailed for Chelsea? See a lot of WC goinf with him. Im currently on this WC, thoughts?

    Martinez
    TAA Saiss James Taylor
    Salah KDB Son Podence
    Werner Jiminez
    (Steer, Mitchell, Bissouma, Brewster)

      Nice team, if a little weak on bench unless Brewster gets a move finally, which you'd think he would.

      Think theory is with James is that Azpi is squad player now and he is the starter. Looks like it is the case but not certain yet.

      Not fancy Everton at all?

    Hiya guys, currently a bit grassy. On WC, what changes you make? Have toyed around with mitro v Foden with Burke bench, etc, while also trying to keep enough ITB to be able to get Martial if needed. 0.5 ITB rn

    Martinez (Steer)
    TAA Saiss Lamptey (Justin Mitchell)
    Sala KDB JRod Foden Podence
    Werner Jimenez (Davis)

    Justin v CTaylor also up in air

    Much appreciated x

    on wc, any thoughts?

    martinez (steer)
    holding long mitchell justin saiss
    kdb salah rodriguez zaha jorginho
    kane jimenez mitro
    0.7 itb
    maybe switch mitro for woods
    holding for lamptey?
    sterling for kdb as he might be playing deeper in midfield with gundo out

  21. Carefree Crew

    McCarthy, (Button)
    TAA, Saiss, Coady, (Dunne, Lamptey)
    KDB (c), Fernandes, Havertz, Hames, Foden,
    Werner, Mitrovic, (Brewster)

    Wildcard, £1m ITB. GTG?

  22. Pad Randa (The OG)

    Saiss worth the premium over Coady?

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 21 days ago

      Saiss a decent threat from corners. Coady has no goalthreat whatsoever.

    Am I the only one who thinks Werner is average?

      That’s insane

    2. BrooksWasHere
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 21 days ago

      Kind of agree... doesn’t look too nimble in possession, but undoubtedly rapid. Reminds me a bit of Torres at Liverpool. Hopefully he’ll start scoring like Torres did.

    3. batman_sux
      • 3 Years

      Agree, plus might be played out of position this game week

  24. The Bad Seed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    A) FODEN+SAISS
    B) PODENCE+DOHERTY

    THOUGHTS?
    What do you guys prefer?

    1. Shoplifters United
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 21 days ago

      A, with the understanding Foden will not always feature.

  25. jaguar shark

    So James is nailed for this week right??

      R James

    What does everyone think of United’s chances v Brighton? Looked terrible last week. I dumped Bruno and Greenwood on a WC but not too late to shamefully hedge my bets and bring one back in

  27. Shoplifters United
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 21 days ago

    Klich (on pens?) or Podence (nice run of fixtures)?
