Scout Squad

The Scout Squad’s top picks for FPL Gameweek 7

Only three players have been given universal backing by the Scout Squad panel, with Gameweek 7 proving to be a divisive set of fixtures.

For those new to the site, this weekly forerunner to the Scout Picks article sees our four-man panel champion the standout Fantasy Premier League assets for the upcoming Gameweek.

Fantasy Football Scout editor David, deputy editor Neale, video content manager Andy and Pro Pundit Tom will each put forward an 18-man squad of players and explain their notable inclusions and omissions below.

The nominations listed will then be whittled 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 the earlier-than-usual FPL deadline at 18:30 BST on Friday.

There are requirements for at least:

  • One goalkeeper costing £5.0m or less
  • One sub-£5.0m defender
  • One midfielder listed at £6.5m or below
  • 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 to say this was one of the most challenging Scout Squad submissions to put together in recent years.

Let’s start in defence, where I have put most of my trust in the backlines of Chelsea and Manchester City.

Frank Lampard’s men face a Burnley outfit that has scored just three times in the first five matches and are currently inside the Premier League’s bottom three for big chances and goal conversion rate, hence my inclusion of Edouard Mendy and Ben Chilwell.

Sheffield United have the same goal tally as the Clarets despite playing one more match, which is why I fancy Manchester City’s defence enough to triple up here. João Cancelo and Aymeric Laporte are the two I am most excited by. That’s because the Blades have conceded more chances down their right flank than any other side this season, while no team has given up more headed chances than them.

Speaking of weak flanks, Leicester have also been experiencing problems down their right-hand side, second only to Sheffield United for chances conceded on that side of the pitch after six Gameweeks. That’s why Stuart Dallas gets the nod for me in Leeds’ defence, while left-winger Jack Harrison is my differential midfielder.

Meanwhile, Branislav Ivanovic is an outside bet considering the improvements he has made to West Bromwich Albion’s defence since making his Premier League debut for them. Despite only playing two matches for the Baggies, he is already second only to Grady Diangana for shots in the box, which may help him against a Fulham side that has not shored up as well as Slaven Bilic’s men have.

Son Heung-min and Harry Kane are virtually auto-inclusions at this rate, considering how effective their partnership is in 2020/21. The South Korean international has involved himself in nine of Kane’s 13 attacking returns thus far, so owning both seems a viable strategy.

Brighton’s defence has been a perplexing one this year, with a relatively admirable figure for expected goals conceded (xGC) but moments of poor concentration have been letting them down. Still without captain and first-choice centre-back Lewis Dunk, I can’t see the Seagulls stopping Son and Kane’s march towards more FPL points in Gameweek 7.

Sadio Mané is my only Liverpool selection for this next round of Scout Squad submissions as the strong state of both West Ham’s defence and attack have convinced me they can hold their hosts at bay on Saturday, but find the net at Anfield too.

Mané still gets the nod though, as I see him as the most likely to break the Hammers down, considering he has the second-best score for minutes per expected goal involvement (xGI) in the Premier League this season and is behind only Dominic Calvert-Lewin for expected goals non-penalty.

There is a huge imbalance in the Southampton defence which can play into Aston Villa’s hands in Gameweek 7. They have conceded 73 crosses from the right-hand side this season, a whopping 46 more than the number given up on the left (27). Dean Smith’s men will have a point to prove at Villa Park on Sunday afternoon, so the fact that their most effective player Jack Grealish will line up against Southampton’s weaker side is sure to help.

Even though there is currently some uncertainty surrounding Michail Antonio‘s fitness for Gameweek 7, I have included him nonetheless. Liverpool’s defence was poor this season even before they lost Virgil van Dijk and Fabinho to injury.

NEALE SAID…

Whatever the opposite of an irresistible force meeting an immovable object is, it’s Fulham v West Bromwich Albion. Both clubs have conceded a joint-league-high 14 goals this season and are struggling at the other end of the pitch, with the Baggies having created only one big chance all season. Like Alan Partridge musing on the School for the Deaf, it’s difficult to work out whether there will be goals or otherwise.

Albion have shown signs of improvement at the back over the last two Gameweeks, at least, and Sam Johnstone should be good for a save point even if the Baggies’ defence is breached: a high proportion of Fulham’s chances are from distance, while tame, looping Aleksandar Mitrovic headers do seem to account for a lot of the Cottagers’ shots on target.

If the deadlock is to be broken, then the impressive Ademola Lookman could be the man to unpick the visitors’ backline. I backed him in the Scout Squad last week and he couldn’t have come much closer to scoring, hitting the woodwork twice against Palace.

Sheffield United’s concession of a high number of chances from their right flank and a rest for Joao Cancelo in midweek leads me to nominate the Portuguese full-back for Manchester City’s trip to Bramall Lane, while the low block that the Blades will no doubt employ may require some Kevin De Bruyne magic from deep for Pep Guardiola’s side.

Ben Chilwell looked a little tired on Wednesday and I do wonder whether he might be handed a breather at Turf Moor this weekend, particularly if Frank Lampard opts for more of an aerial threat at left-back to combat a direct Burnley side. He is probably my first-choice Chelsea defender but Reece James, who admittedly himself is hardly a nailed pick, is a relatively fresh option after a benching in the Champions League and his bonus point magnetism means he has a great chance of hauling when those starts do come.

Speaking of full-backs who I’m not certain will start, I’ve included Niels Nkounkou as my fifth defender purely to enter his name into the discussion for this weekend. Carlo Ancelotti may opt for the experience of Fabian Delph at left-back instead but the Italian is usually (James Rodriguez aside) up front with his team news and may give us an indication one way or another whether the £4.0m FPL defender will get the nod to deputise for Lucas Digne against a Newcastle side that have been toothless in attack for much of the season, despite somehow scoring eight goals.

TOM SAID…

With uncertainty surrounding who Nuno Espírito Santo considers as Wolverhampton Wanderers’ first-choice left-sided centre-back and wing-back, I’ve settled on Rui Patrício and Nélson Semedo in this week’s squad, both of whom looks assured of starts against Crystal Palace. Despite being denied a third consecutive clean sheet late on in Gameweek 6, Wolves limited their opponents Newcastle United to just two shots in the box, which bodes well for a shut-out on Friday night.

I’ve also opted for a defensive double-up at Chelsea, via Edouard Mendy and Ben Chilwell. The Blues have now kept four clean sheets in their last five matches in all competitions and travel to a Burnley side who have managed just three league goals all season. Chilwell could be in line for attacking returns too: since Gameweek 4, no defender can match him for touches, successful crosses, created chances or expected assists (xA). 

They’re joined at the back by Sam Johnstone, Andrew Robertson, João Cancelo and Stuart Dallas.

The Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea attacking selections largely speak for themselves, so I’ll spend a bit more time talking through some of my other picks.

While the loss of Manchester City’s two main strikers is a blow, their 3-0 midweek win at Marseille highlighted that they can still score goals in their absence. Kevin De Bruyne was once again pulling the strings and finished the game with two assists, while Phil Foden looked sharp operating from the left. If he were to start in a similar role at Bramall Lane it would certainly heighten his appeal, bearing in mind Sheffield United have given up a whopping 30 chances down their right-side so far this season, at least five more than any other team in the division. 

I’ve also included Leeds United’s Jack Harrison in the budget midfielder slot. The 23-year-old has already scored at Liverpool and supplied an assist at Sheffield United, and will be up against Leicester City’s right flank, which can be got at, as evidenced by Jack Grealish and Pablo Fornals’ performances against them in recent weeks.

The offensive list is completed by Raul Jiménez, Danny Ings and Callum Wilson.

ANDY SAID…

While FPL managers continue to speculate on whether Romain Saïss will keep his place, he continues ticking along with clean sheet points. Despite Wilfried Zaha continuing to return, this is another match that looks primed for a Wolves shut-out.

Ademola Lookman has been heavily involved since he made his Fulham debut in Gameweek 4. In the last two Gameweeks, he’s played 180 minutes, and only four players have attempted more shots in the box than Lookman’s five. While West Brom may have improved defensively in the last two matches, I’m not ready to remove their whipping boys’ tag and think this could be a good fixture for Fulham.

With Seamus Coleman looking like he’ll miss out in Gameweek 7 and Lucas Digne being suspended, it might not be the worst time to play Everton from an attacking point of view. It also helps that they’ve conceded two goals in each of their last three games. Only six players have a higher expected goal involvement than Callum Wilson so far this season and Newcastle will see a good opportunity with the number of suspensions and injuries Everton are suffering from.

I’ve been impressed with Sadio Mané so far both from the eye test and a stats perspective. Only Dominic Calvert-Lewin has a higher non-penalty xG so far this season with Mané at 4.03 and Calvert-Lewin at 4.27. When you see that Mane has played 100 fewer minutes than Mohamed Salah, it’s even more impressive. Salah is creating more, but from a goal threat perspective, Mané has been a little more efficient so far. Without being able to rely on penalties, Mané may even be the better option right now.

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.

AA33‘s winning 53-point margin in Gameweek 2 is the target to beat.

    Pretty sure i'm burning a FT this week, nothing worth a trasfer here this week is there?

    Martinez
    Chilwell Robertson Reguilon (Ayling, 3.9)
    Son Grealish, Salah, Pulisic (Biss)
    DCL Kane Watkins

    Want to keep the money for potentially Watkins >> Antonio next week

      Grealish -> Foden?

      1. popey

        Jacks a season keeper!

          Such a bad transfer that, much rather Grealish

    2. wasp3000

      26 days, 13 hours ago

      3.9 to Kilman?

      1. popey

        26 days, 13 hours ago

        wish id got him on my WC for 4.0 - if i did that move it takes away option of Watkins to Antonio next week unforunately. If he keeps his place once the left backs are fit i'll get him in for Reguilon in 2 weeks

        1. wasp3000
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          26 days, 13 hours ago

          Ya fair enough. I like the Watkins to Antonio move next week so you're right to prioritise (if fit). I'm doing the same with Maupay to Antonio. I don't like burning a FT so Reguilon out seems the obvious move as he is a rotation risk but home to Brighton prob not the best time to sell

          1. popey
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            26 days, 13 hours ago

            yep just cant bring myself to transfer him out before Brighton at home - especially as the main options I'd consider are Cresswell (play Ayling v LEI this week) or Saiss/Kilman (question marks over place)

    3. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      26 days, 13 hours ago

      Have you considered doing Watkins to Antonio this week? Pool defence is depleted and he could do well. Then you're on him early in case his price rises.

      1. popey
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        26 days, 13 hours ago

        Yes thought about this, playing Robertson and being a Villa fan I'm just not sure. Also isn't there a risk on Antonio's hammy?

        1. Hulk Smash
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          26 days, 13 hours ago

          Hopefully we'll know before the deadline. If you don't think Watkins will score this week you might as well make use of the transfer rather than burn it.

  2. TB303
    • 3 Years
    26 days, 13 hours ago

    Should we get rid of Pool defenders?

    1. Bavarian
      • 2 Years
      26 days, 13 hours ago

      I'm keeping Robbo till the end of the season...

    2. popey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      26 days, 13 hours ago

      i'm looking at Robertson as a winger, if you think about his options of a return being CS, assist, goals - he should be good for 20+ returns this season, making him the better value than any of the 7m mids

      certainly an argument that Pool defenders are expendable at present if funds need to raised

    3. wasp3000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      26 days, 13 hours ago

      Robbo in my WC team last week and not going anywhere. He looks like a mazy winger at the mo.

    4. TB303
      • 3 Years
      26 days, 13 hours ago

      Ok fair points
      I will keep

  3. Drogba Legend

    Any help appreciated. 2FT:

    Ryan
    Robbo - Chillwell - Saiss
    Salah - Son - Grealish - Pulisic
    Maupay - DCL - Kane (C)

    Steer - Dallas - Stephens - Douglas

    A) Save 2FT
    B) Maupay > 6.5 forward or under
    C) Maupay + Ryan out for Adams+Mendy
    D) Pulisic > 8.3 mid or under
    E) Maupay + Puli > Zaha and 6.8 forward?

    Cheers!

      I wouldn’t burn a transfer Adams and mendy isn’t a bad shout or just Maupay To someone

    2. wasp3000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      26 days, 13 hours ago

      Who you thinking for Maupay if you went with 1 FT?

    3. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      26 days, 13 hours ago

      Maupay -> Bamford/Antonio

    4. Oooo Matron
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      26 days, 13 hours ago

      Same dilemma with Maupay. With 2 fts it seems wise to get a better striker if only for a week. The question is who! Bamford probably a safe bet, but Antonio looks very tempting in a week's time.

  4. wasp3000
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    26 days, 13 hours ago

    Salah captainers last GW are you keeping the faith?

    The season going horrendous so I know if I jump to Son or Kane it will back fire 🙁

    1. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights

      Most likely.

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      26 days, 13 hours ago

      Keeping the faith.

      1. In a Rush
        • 4 Years
        26 days, 13 hours ago

        Probably keeping the faith

    3. popey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      26 days, 13 hours ago

      keeping faith and capping again, with the tight offside and hitting post, was so close to a big score

    So do people here think Werner may get rested with Giroud up top against the Burnley defence? Or maybe in the Rennes game instead next week

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      26 days, 13 hours ago

      I think it's a fair concern for owners but the Rennes game seems like a more likely rest game

    2. Miguel Sanchez

      Nope, think Chelsea will so largely full strength against Burnley with the only players coming in being Mount, James and Silva.

    So is Sterling going to be rested this week given that he had played so many games recently or will the striker situation force another start?

    1. yakirh

      Starting for sure IMO

      1. gooberman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        26 days, 13 hours ago

        How can you be so sure? He played in the internationals and has then played 4 90 minute games in 10 days. Seems due a rest to me.

        1. yakirh
          • 4 Years
          26 days, 13 hours ago

          He didn't play in the internationals
          There are no other strikers
          It makes no sense to bench your best attacker in a very important game

          Rest is for sure wins

  14. Sulley

    Worth switching Jiminez to Kane for a hit this week? Might be tempted to give Kane the armband.

    1. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      No

        For who?

      Not for a hit. Start Mitchell

      1. The Mighty Whites
        • 5 Years
        26 days, 13 hours ago

        Wouldn't be a hit, would be a free transfer

        1. Boly Would
          • 4 Years
          26 days, 13 hours ago

          How much ITB? Would transfer either one of Taylor or Lamptey

          1. The Mighty Whites

            26 days, 13 hours ago

            £2.4

    hi managers!
    I have 2ft and really dont know what to do (0,5itb). I was thinking bringing Target for coady and in GW8 Balbuena and Rashford for TAA and Podence.

    Thoughts?

    My line up
    Ryan
    Taa Coady KWP
    Sterling Podence Salah Son
    Kane Adams DCL

    Brantwhite Mitchel Romero

    I've got 2fts and not sure what to do with them. TAA is gone next week, but I want to keep him for the West Ham match. Any ideas:

    Ryan 4.0
    TAA Robertson KWP (Mitchell Masuaku)
    Salah Son Pulisic JRod (Bissouma)
    DCL Jimenez Watkins

    I'm gutted I missed Kilman's price rise or I'd have swapped him for Mitchell.

    I've got 0.0 ITB

    1. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      26 days, 13 hours ago

      Watkins -> Bamford or Ryan out

  20. Hansel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    26 days, 13 hours ago

    McCarthy Steer
    TAA Robbo Justin Taylor Mitchell
    Salah Son Rodriguez Podence Bissouma
    Mitro Ings Jimi

    2FT, 2.4 ITB

    A) Podence -> Grealish + 0.6 ITB
    B) TAA, Podence -> Chilwell, Rashford (0.0 ITB)
    C) TAA, Mitro -> Coufal, Kane + 0.2 ITB

  21. Bruce Lee

    Play Maupay vs Tottenham

    Use 1 of the 2 FTs and swap Maupay for Antonio vs Liverpool?

    1. Boly Would
      • 4 Years
      26 days, 13 hours ago

      Antonio

  22. SHOWSTOPPERRR

    Guys I have 2ft and no idea what to do here..

    Martinez
    Robbo saiss dallas
    Salah son havertz grealish
    Kane dcl maupay

    4.0 bissouma kwp lamptey

    0.0itb maupay havertz lamptey I am not comfortable with these l, but what to do??

    Havertz to puli for free? Pulisic rested and fresh

    1. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      26 days, 13 hours ago

      Does Maupay to Brewster and Havertz to Bruno work out?

      1. SHOWSTOPPERRR
        • 2 Years
        26 days, 12 hours ago

        Sounds good and thanks for the suggestion..but then I need to start either Brewster or bissou as an attacking option..

  23. Bad Klopp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Current team is:

    Martinez (Steer)
    Justin Saiss Castagne (Mitchell, Lamptey)
    Salah Son Pulisic JRod* (Costa)
    DCL Maupay Kane

    With 2 FTs - considering: JRod + Costa > Rashford + Lookman

    Have DCL for Everton coverage. Costa too costly for a bit part player in my team. Lookman is looking lively and statistically dominates Costa over the previous 2 GWs. Rashford is in great form.

    Thoughts?

      Does it make sense for Saiss owners to double up with Kilman?
      - If Kilman's dropped, you've still got Saiss and a 4.2m non-playing defender isn't too bad
      - If Saiss is dropped, you've still got Kilman and can sell Saiss the following week
      - If both play you've doubled up on one of the best defences in the league

      Moyes on Antoniom last Saturday

      "He’s just feeling something a little bit in his hamstring. We think he feels it’s just cramping so it’s not serious, but we’re not too sure. Obviously, it’s worrying me that it’s two games in a row that he’s felt it."

        Ben Chilwell, Ross Barkley and Jack Grealish all paid tribute to late Chelsea fan Andrew Wood over the weekend.

        Devoted Blues fan Wood passed away last Thursday, aged 33, leaving behind his wife Hayley and two sons.

        Following his passing, Chelsea players of present and past, including Cesar Azpilicueta, Frank Lampard and John Terry, took to social media to pay tribute.

        And tributes continued at the weekend when three players dedicated their goal celebrations to late Blues fan 'Woody'.

        Chilwell scored his first Chelsea goal in the win over Crystal Palace and celebrated by making the letter 'A' with his hands.
