Scout Picks

Gameweek 9 Scout Picks built on Chelsea and Everton attacking double-ups

Attacking double-ups for Chelsea and Everton form the spine of the Gameweek 9 Scout Picks XI.

They face Newcastle and Fulham respectively in two of the most favourable fixtures this weekend.

As ever, we have chosen our team from DavidNealeTom and Andy‘s Scout Squad submissions, released earlier this week.

We line up in the traditional 3-4-3 formation, coming in bang-on our budget of £83.0m.

Goalkeeper

Vicente Guaita (£5.0m) gets his first Scout Picks appearance of the campaign ahead of a Monday-night trip to Turf Moor. Will it prove to be his happy place? Well, Burnley remain this season’s lowest scorers after eight Gameweeks and, over the last four, are bottom of the league for shots on target (eight).

Defenders

During that same period, no club has registered fewer total attempts on goal than Newcastle (27), boosting Chelsea’s clean sheet chances in Gameweek 9. The Blues themselves have secured shut-outs in three of their last five while no Premier League defender can match Ben Chilwell (£6.0m) for key passes since Gameweek 5.

No team has conceded fewer big chances in the last four matches than Manchester United, which is why we’ve chosen Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.4m) for the Gameweek 9 Scout Picks. He stands in for Harry Maguire, who we initially chose but had to replace due to an injury doubt. Either way, Wan-Bissaka still stands to benefit from United’s improved defence and the fact that West Bromwich Albion are bottom of the league for big chances of their own since Gameweek 5.

Aaron Cresswell (£5.1m) went close to match Chilwell’s creativity output over the last four matches, registering just one fewer key pass than his Chelsea counterpart. A role in corners and free-kicks for West Ham is good news considering upcoming opponents Sheffield United have given up the most chances from set-plays and the second-most headed attempts since Gameweek 5.

Midfielders

Naturally, the Gameweek 9 captain poll winner Bruno Fernandes (£10.6m) makes it into the Scout Picks for a home match against West Bromwich Albion. Since Gameweek 2, no midfielder created more chances than Manchester United’s key man and he remains a persistent shooter, registering the third-highest number of shots over the same period.

Hakim Ziyech (£8.2m) has made a blistering start to life in the Premier League. In just two starts he already has four goal involvements, three of those assists. That output has looked sustainable too, considering that, in the last four matches, Ziyech is joint-top of the league for big chances created – and he’s only started two in that period. Meanwhile, he faces a Newcastle side in Gameweek 9 that has conceded the third-highest number of chances from set pieces in 2020/21.

James Rodríguez (£7.9m) could be back with a bang in Gameweek 9 as he faces a Fulham defence that has conceded at least twice in three of their four home matches this season. Crucially, no team has given up more headed attempts than them since Gameweek 5, perfect for Everton’s corner and free-kick taker.

Only Son Heung-min and Mohamed Salah have more points among midfielders than Jack Grealish (£7.5m) this season and we expect him to continue his impressive form against Brighton. The Seagulls’ possession-based style means they don’t give up many chances, but their susceptibility to the counter-attack means they still only have two clean sheets from a possible eight this season. Meanwhile, Grealish has created the joint-highest number of big chances in the last four matches and is joint-third for big chances of his own.

Forwards

Jamie Vardy (£10.1m) could benefit from Liverpool’s defensive shortages in Gameweek 9. The Reds are missing key personnel at the back right now while Leicester’s main man is joint-top of the league for big chances in the last four matches. On top of that, only two players have registered more shots on target than Vardy in that time.

Timo Werner (£9.4m) is really starting to find his feet at Chelsea. In the last four matches, just two players have boasted superior xG non penalty figures than the German international, who has recently secured spot-kick duty anyway. He faces a Newcastle side that has averaged two goals conceded per match since Gameweek 5 and who have given up more chances down their right-hand side than any other Premier League club in that time, 

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.8m) could have an enjoyable Gameweek 9 meeting with Fulham’s defence, which looks tailor-made to suffer at his hands. as already mentioned, the Cottagers have conceded the joint-most number of headed attempts in the last four matches, while the majority of Calvert-Lewin’s shots this season have come from the air.

Substitutes

Selected by three of our Scout Squad pundits for Gameweek 9, top-scoring FPL goalkeeper Emiliano Martínez (£4.8m) takes a place on the bench.

Matt Targett (£4.5m) is a cheaper alternative route into the Aston Villa back-line. None of his defensive colleagues has matched his five key passes over the last four matches.

Vladimir Coufal (£4.5m) is another way to invest in West Ham’s defence for a trip to Sheffield United. He is second-only to Cresswell for crosses among all Hammers players over the last four matches.

Diogo Jota (£6.5m) looks more nailed-on to start than ever with Salah absent from Liverpool’s Gameweek 9 plans. The former Wolves man has found the net in each of his last three Premier League matches at Anfield.

THE CAPTAIN

Who are the best captain options for FPL Gameweek 36+?

We choose the Scout Picks captain using a four-way vote between our Scout Squad pundits.

Because the use of Fantasy Football Scout data is used so heavily in this process, the skipper we choose each Gameweek is known only to those with a valid Fantasy Football Scout subscription and revealed to the public only when the deadline has passed.

Here’s how we voted for Gameweek 9:

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 team by the largest margin will win a £100 Amazon Voucher and a place in our Moderators and Contributors League for the following season.

THFC4LIFE managed 62 points for the Community Champions in Gameweek 8 but the Scout Picks went 6-2 up for the season with a healthy score of 78.

claretparrot takes us on for Gameweek 9, opting for a 3-5-2 line-up of Guaita; Zouma, Cresswell, Wan-Bissaka; B Fernandes (vc), Rashford, Grealish, Richarlison, Ziyech; Calvert-Lewin (c), Vardy.

AA33 is the current leader, defeating the Scout Picks by a 53-point margin in Gameweek 2.

      They just don’t seem right.

      Won't go there with that price

      No his form is awful and there are better options

      Wouldn't want him even if he was 2 million cheaper.

    Do you think Salah and TAA to Bruno (c) and Telles good moves for -4 and this team?

    1. Rupert The Horse

      Maybe just make one move.

    2. Gentle_Turks
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Partly depends on whether you want Salah back next week.

    3. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Why not ... Telles is risky but could pay off

  7. Gentle_Turks
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 17 days ago

    So Salah could yet play this weekend.

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Nope

    2. Danstoke82
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Doubtful if he’s self isolating?

    3. FPLMACKEM
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Source?

    4. Jet5605
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      I think he plays as soon as he tests negative

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        Nah. Hasn’t even trained.

    5. caldracula
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      No, earliest he can play will be in the champions league.

      1. Daniel - WC Active
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        He won't imo

        1. caldracula
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 17 days ago

          I agree, but it’s possible. Most likely outcome is he’s back for Brighton.

    6. Gentle_Turks
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      I've read that a negative test tomorrow puts him in contention, as per Klopps remarks.

      1. caldracula
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        His 10 day isolation from the first test puts him out until Monday at least.

        1. Gentle_Turks
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 17 days ago

          It's been suggested that once he tests negative then he's cleared to play, whenever the negative test comes. I've no idea whether this is correct.

          1. Gentle_Turks
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 17 days ago

            But Klopp seems to think so (judging by his comments).

          2. caldracula
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 17 days ago

            He can play once he tests negative and his 10 days isolation has been done, which will be Monday at the earliest.

            1. Gentle_Turks
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 17 days ago

              Klopp on Salah: 'In the moment when you have a negative test then the process really starts'.

              1. caldracula
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 17 days ago

                Yes because he can’t train or play until he tests negative. What I’m saying is if he tests negative tomorrow he still needs to complete the 10 day isolation. How do you not understand that?

                1. Gentle_Turks
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 3 Years
                  3 months, 17 days ago

                  As I said above, I've no idea if it is correct that he can play once he tests negative, but Klopp, judging by his comments, seems to think that he can.

    7. Shineonme
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      No way

  8. caldracula
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 17 days ago

    Martinez
    Chilwell Coufal Kilman
    Salah Son Zaha Grealish
    Kane DCL Watkins

    Steele, Saiss, Lamptery, Bissouma

    Looking at going a different way and doing Kane + Son > Vardy + Ziyech -4.

    Next week Zaha + Saiss > KDB/Sterling + Dias -4.

    1. caldracula
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      I’ll leave me with

      Martinez
      Chilwell Dias Coufal
      Salah KDB Ziyech Grealish
      Vardy DCL Watkins

      Steele, Lampety, Kilman, Bissouma

    2. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      It's a very common move.

      1. caldracula
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        The very common move is Salah out and keeping one of Kane/Son if not both.

  9. Will J 256
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 17 days ago

    Thoughts on this -4 hit?
    Salah and son to KDB/Bruno and Ziyech?

          Would you rather sell Salah and find out he’s out for just one game or keep and find out he’s out for two?

        3. Shineonme
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 17 days ago

          I think he'll be out for the Brighton game imo. We'll just have to wait and see.

      Triple Spurs for a tough run of fixtures is too much. Lose one Spurs player and carry over a transfer for next week.

  11. Jet5605

    Have Soucek on the bench to come in for Salah if I hold him. 1 FT and 0.3 ITB. Which option looks best.

    A - Son > Ziyech
    B - Egan > Coufal
    C - Salah > KDB

    For me, selling Salah comes down to whether Bruno is worth a -4 over Brewster for 1 week.

    I think he is, given the potential points ceiling.

    Is that misguided?

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      He’s worth it.

    2. Danstoke82

      Son to Bruno and change 2nd choice keeper to allow flexibility to do triple Villa if you need to later on (they have some tidy fixtures coming up)

      Otherwise a decent squad

    Would you captain any Pool players (bri WOL) ahead of KdB/Sterling in gw10-11 (BUR FUL) ?

    Thinking to go without Salah/Mane until gw 12.

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Already decided no LIV until gw12

      No.

      I think you can wait until gw12.

      Brighton are doing very well defensively anyway.

      I prefer the City assets atm. I have Sterling but will get Salah/Mane in a few weeks

  19. Daniel - WC Active

    Q: Injury news? Antonio to be involved or is it too early for him?

    "He’s back doing a little bit of training, we have got a couple of days yet to see how he is. The truth is I can’t give you a complete answer but he is getting much closer, that’s for sure."

    Antonio news.

    What you think, play him, Justin, Mitchel or Salah out for a hit for KDB?

    1. Daniel - WC Active
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Anyone?

    How does this plan sound?

    GW 9 - Salah > Fernandes
    GW 10 - Son + Kane > KDB + Vardy

    Transfer suggestions? (2FTs + 0. 5m)

    Martinez Forster
    Robbo Chilwell Reguilion Coufal Dallas
    Salah Son Rodriguez Grealish Soucek
    Kane DCL Bamford

    1. Totti

    I know those Spurs fixtures are red, and especially City and Chelsea looks like tough tasks, but is it just me or does those fixtures seem alright for both Son and Kane?

    So far they've had some braces against teams who want to play forward (Southampton, Man U & West Ham) while they have struggled a bit against deeper sitting teams like Brighton, Burnley, Newcastle & West Bromwich.
    I know Man U got a red card and all, but they still managed to score a combined 14 goals against those three teams and only netting combined five against the latter four teams.

    I don't expect them to score the same amount against City, Chelsea and Arsenal, but but?

    1. Salarrivederci
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Guess I am trying to justify keeping both the topscoring players this season.
      You'll want them back at some point, and if they return big against City or Chelsea you'll have to empty your pockets buying them back?

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      What what in the but?

    3. DK_13
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Salah scored the same as kane last week.
      But going into the week I was behind the sofa and kane owners/cappers weren't.
      Hypothetically yes they can score in all. But you will have to keep posting stuff like this to convince yourself and then hope others (better on paper) don't outscore your picks. Doesnt sound like a lot of fun

    4. Danstoke82
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      I’m toying with losing Son to try and find a way of bringing in KDB. I feel like I need to keep Kane. He can go big at any time

    5. House Frey Wedding Planner
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      I actually do think there's a fair chance Kane and Son could return well in the next few fixtures. They're both the current highest point scorers, Spurs tend to play better on the counter attack, and both have previous form against those 3 particular clubs.

      I'm keeping them both in as I have more pressing issues to address in my squad.

      Good luck!

    Most boring question ever...

    Best 4.0 goalkeeper?

    1. HollywoodXI
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Forster

    2. Shark Team
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      i picked fabri from fulham bec i will never triple up on them.

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Forster if you have McCarthy

      If not then Button or Peacock Farrell. Basically any team you are very confident you’d never want three players from. See issues Steer owners have had

    4. Salarrivederci
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Steer because I got Martínez.
      I think it is the best in case of an injury (add in Covid-19).
      Downside is that I won't be able to get Watkins while owning Martínez, Steer and Grealish.

    5. fclackless [Brazil Nuts]
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Anyone but Steer ... he won't even be second choice soon.

    A > Salah & Brewster > Bruno & Watkins

    C > Digne & Son > KWP & Bruno (Keep Salah)

    1. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      A keep Digne

      1. Slim25
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        Was leaning towards this, but then I've got 8 starters to pick from
