The Scout Squad’s top picks for FPL Gameweek 10

Despite the wealth of options boasting good form and/or fixtures available to FPL managers heading into Gameweek 10, there is still some consensus in the Scout Squad picks.

Four players get unanimous backing, with a further half-dozen assets receiving three nominations apiece.

For those new to these pages, this weekly precursor to the Scout Picks selection 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 each put forward an 18-man long-list of players and explain their notable inclusions and omissions below.

The assets 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 FPL deadline at 18:30 GMT on Friday.

In each squad, 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 also 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…

Only Chelsea and Manchester United have given up fewer big chances than Manchester City since Gameweek 6. which is why I trust their defence for a meeting with Burnley, the division’s joint-lowest scorers. João Cancelo and Ruben Dias are my double-up: the former has created more chances than any other Premier League defender in their last four, while the centre-back offers some threat at set pieces.

Without Wilfried Zaha, I do not expect much joy for Crystal Palace against Newcastle, especially with such a tight turnaround from their Monday-night meeting with Burnley. Considering the Magpies have conceded the same number of big chances as Manchester United in their last four, it makes sense to include a defensive double-up of Karl Darlow and Jamal Lewis.

Wolves have also been in solid form statistically, giving up just one more big chance since Gameweek 6 than Manchester City. They face an Arsenal side that has scored just once in their last five Premier League outings. Considering Wolves have not been full of goals themselves, I’m going for a defensive triple-up here of Rui Patrício, Rayan Aït-Nouri and Max Kilman.

I have no qualms selecting Kevin De Bruyne for Gameweek 10, considering his midweek rest. The Manchester City man is joint-third for big chances created in the last four and has shown a penchant for shots on goal in that time too. While Burnley’s defence has been stout in recent favourable home matches, they have lost their last five trips to the Etihad Stadium (in all competitions) by a combined score of 22-1. The last three of these were all 5-0 defeats.

Bruno Fernandes has been very reliable away from home this season and I would expect him to get something at Southampton. The Manchester United midfielder has hit double figures in each of his last three road trips, surely enough to believe he can end the Saints’ run of three matches at St Mary’s without conceding.

I am backing Jack Grealish to bounce back at the first time of asking against West Ham. He is still comparing well with the rest of the division across a number of categories relating to assist potential and goal threat.

Hakim Ziyech is a bit of a punt for this particular Gameweek. Yes, Spurs have made defensive improvements recently but they are still susceptible from set plays, perhaps even more so without Toby Alderweireld. Since Gameweek 6, only Southampton and Sheffield United have conceded more chances from dead-ball situations, which could bode well for Ziyech, who sits top of the league for big chances created over the same period.

When Everton host Leeds on Saturday afternoon, I am actually more confident of Patrick Bamford‘s points potential than Dominic Calvert-Lewin. Only Sheffield United have a worse expected goals conceded (xGC) score over the last four matches than Everton, while Bamford is top of the league for shots in the box, big chances and shots on target over the same period. Plus, 65% of his points have come on the road this season.

Considering the relatively poor shape Everton’s defence is in, I have selected Jack Harrison, too. His 13 key passes in his last four appearances is more than Fernandes and behind only Ross Barkley in that time.

Jamie Vardy has a similar potential to do well in Gameweek 10. Fulham are in the bottom four for xGC since Gameweek 6, while Vardy is behind only Bamford for big chances and shots on target in that time.

If Callum Wilson is passed fit, I expect him to make the most of Crystal Palace’s recent defensive deterioration. The Eagles have kept just one clean sheet in their last 17 league games, conceding in eight consecutive matches since the 1-0 win over Southampton in Gameweek 1.

NEALE SAID…

Brighton and Hove Albion may be performing solidly on the underlying stats front but the fact is, they have conceded 13 goals and kept zero clean sheets in their five meetings with top-half clubs so far this season.

Sixth in the table for ball possession in 2020/21, the Seagulls are a ‘play out from the back’ type of side and exactly the sort of team who could be punished by a Liverpool outfit who were back to their ferocious pressing best in Gameweek 9.

We only have to think back to the Reds’ 3-1 win at the Amex in July, when Brighton were twice dispossessed high up the field and punished in the first 10 minutes, for portents ahead of the Saturday lunchtime kick-off.

I’m therefore doubling up on the Liverpool attack in the form of the returning Mohamed Salah and the in-form Diogo Jota, who is matching and even out-performing his more expensive team-mates for many key attacking metrics over the last four Gameweeks.

The absence of Tariq Lamptey should also help unleash Andrew Robertson down the Liverpool left, given that Joel Veltman is unlikely to force the Scot back to the same extent.

The Reds’ cross-city rivals have impressed in fits and starts this season but mostly going forward.

The Saturday evening clash at Goodison Park not only features the two teams who have made the most defensive ‘errors’ this season but also the two goalkeepers who are, in Opta’s eyes, underperforming worse than any other shot-stoppers, in terms of expected goals prevented.

Carlo Ancelotti’s switch to a 3-4-3 at Craven Cottage did little to stem the flow of goals and it’s for that reason that I’m as confident with my Patrick Bamford pick as I am the weekly Dominic Calvert-Lewin selection.

Goals perhaps look less likely at Selhurst Park and the Hawthorns.

Palace and Newcastle have, admittedly, not kept a single clean sheet between them since Gameweek 1.

But with Callum Wilson not pictured in training as of Wednesday – keep tabs on Steve Bruce’s presser for more information there – and his manager switching to a more conservative wing-back system as of Gameweek 6, the Eagles will not have a better chance of doubling their shut-out count.

Patrick van Aanholt consequently gets the nod and offers additional points potential at the other end, having averaged two shots and three penalty box touches per match since his return to the starting XI in Gameweek 7.

Eberechi Eze also squeezes into my picks as a fifth midfielder, as much for what I’ve witnessed on the TV screen as in the Members Area tables. On a share of set plays and a bright spark in the defeat at Burnley, his threat down Newcastle’s weak-looking right flank will be much needed should Wilfried Zaha miss out again.

As for West Brom v Sheffield United, Sam Johnstone‘s recent heroics and the Blades’ anaemic attack (one goal from open play all season) sees the budget goalkeeper join two shot-stoppers who play behind rather more competent backlines – albeit without the favourable fixtures this weekend.

George Baldock also makes the cut in my Scout Squad for that six-pointer in the Black Country: he is fifth among FPL defenders for penalty box touches this season and has had more shots in the opposition area than David McGoldrick and Rhian Brewster combined.

Finally, plum home fixtures for Manchester City and Leicester City sees five players from across those two clubs get the nod – and I won’t win any prizes for originality with any of them.

TOM SAID…

Manchester City may have lost some of their attacking verve this season, at least domestically, but I’m tipping them to get back on track against Burnley this weekend.

Kevin De Bruyne is still involved in their best moments going forward and has produced 14 shots over the last four Gameweeks, which is joint-top amongst midfielders. Having been given a much-needed rest last night, it’s the ideal time for FPL managers to invest and take advantage of his low ownership.

In defence, João Cancelo looks to be the stand-out pick. His 15 created chances over the last five Gameweeks ranks top among defenders, and it’s that creativity which could be a useful weapon against the Clarets’ low block.

Meanwhile, West Bromwich Albion look a good team for bargain hunting this week. Their opponents, Sheffield United, have often looked vulnerable defending crosses from their right side this season, which Conor Townsend will look to take advantage of, while Conor Gallagher was arguably the Baggies’ best player against Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur. If there is to be an upturn in Albion’s fortunes, Gallagher will be central to it. I’ve also included teammate Sam Johnstone as a value option in goal, with the Blades failing to score in five of their nine league matches so far.

Such savings will be needed given that premium picks including Andrew Robertson, Mohamed Salah, Bruno Fernandes and Jamie Vardy have favourable matches, and it just doesn’t sit right to go without Harry Kane, even though a trip to Chelsea could prove a stern test.

After three losses in a row, Everton got back to winning ways at Fulham, which saw them switch from a 4-3-3 to a back three set-up. The Cottagers’ narrow defensive shape meant the wing-backs had a lot of space, and as a result, Lucas Digne created most of their chances. On Saturday, Leeds United won’t give them as much freedom and I expect them to score with Patrick Bamford leading the line, but if Carlo Ancelotti retains the shape, Digne and Dominic Calvert-Lewin can again benefit. 

The squad is completed by Leicester City duo Kasper Schmeichel and James Justin, plus Vicente Guaita, Diogo Jota and Ollie Watkins.

ANDY SAID…

In the last four Gameweeks, no team has managed more shots in the box than Leeds (46) – and Patrick Bamford has taken 18 of them. When you couple that with the fact that Everton have conceded two or more goals in each of their last six league games, Saturday’s fixture at Goodison Park bodes well for the Leeds frontman.

Fulham have conceded the joint-most number of goals so far this season and that misery isn’t likely to get any better with Jamie Vardy coming to town. Despite a lot of his points coming from penalties so far, I’d back him for plenty of goals in this one.

Although they scored two goals against Everton, Fulham are mostly struggling to create. If Timothy Castagne is passed fit it could be returns at both ends of the pitch, and the same goes for James Justin considering that Ricardo Pereira looks set to remain unavailable.

Liverpool showed that they’re still a force to be reckoned with, despite numerous injuries. Their strength in depth is very good, and Leicester couldn’t do anything about it in Gameweek 9. I’m backing both Sadio Mané and Mohamed Salah to get returns in a game where Brighton will be missing Tariq Lamptey. If Liverpool can put up 3.27 expected goals against Leicester, then Brighton might be in trouble.

Sam Johnstone was ultimately the reason Manchester United didn’t score more goals in Gameweek 9. He made six saves alone in that game and already has 38 for the season. With Sheffield United having one of the bluntest attacks in the league, there’s real potential for a clean sheet here and perhaps even some more save points.

Manchester City still aren’t performing quite where we’d expect but I wouldn’t be writing them off just yet. I can’t see Sean Dyche looking to attack Pep Guardiola’s men and, therefore, it may be another training session on how to penetrate a defence when you have the ball in and around the opponents’ box for most of the game.

While Sergio Agüero was back in the squad in Gameweek 9 and in midweek, it may be too soon for City to rely on him from the off, so I’ve given Gabriel Jesus the nod up front. The Brazilian is bound to get chances and, if City do score a few goals, there’s no doubt that Kevin De Bruyne will be involved somehow, too.

    Defensive Options:

    James, Zouma, Justin, Taylor, Mitchell

    Who to start? Is there any chance Mitchell starts?

    Is it worth a -4 to do Zouma to Cancelo?

    1. PURPLE-RONNIE
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      James, Justin and Zouma

      Mitchell doubt he plays

      Not worth a -4 for a defender

      1. Feed tha Sheep
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Agreed

        1. Mcgugan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          Cheers both. That's what I'm on and planning - good to get some reassurance!

    2. Blush Response

      I'm starting Mitchell AND PVA myself. Roy can't screw me then =)

  2. PURPLE-RONNIE
    • 5 Years

    Is ziyech to jota worth a -4 if it means I can bring in KDB for Son next week on a FT?

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      No

    2. Mcgugan

      a jolly good player for a probable bencher,for a hit...success seems improbable at best..

      1. PURPLE-RONNIE
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Yeah I know it sounds stupid on the face of it, it just allows me to bring in KDB then Salah the week after which both will be the top captain choices playing Fulham

    4. Shineonme
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      No way

  3. Feed tha Sheep
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 26 days ago

    Have 1FT what to do?

    A. Foden > Jota
    B. Werner > Vardy
    C. TAA > Cancelo/Robertson (if not will play Taylor v Burnley)
    D. Any two for -4

    1. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Like B

    2. Who are all Lukakus
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      It is tough. A and C has more upside, def upgrades. Werner could fail.

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      How can Taylor play against Burnley?

      Against City? That's not worth.

      TAA > Robertson is what I'd do.

      1. Feed tha Sheep
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Sorry city yes lol
        So you would prioritise C over everything or do two for -4?

    4. Mcgugan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      I don't think B unless you think Vardy is much better than Werner for the next 4-6 games. I think Werner at home to Leeds is good next week.

      A or C look good. C probably the highest point increase (0-1 for Taylor to Cancelo)

      1. Feed tha Sheep
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        I will prob WC in next 4 GWs I would imagine. But I just don’t think Werner is ever capt material or fit to score a hatrick where as Vardy is?

    5. Jordan.

    One for my draft team, need to bench two of these players. Which two?

    A) Cresswell (AVL)
    B) Fornals (AVL)
    C) Firmino (bha)
    D) Torres (BUR)

  7. Camzy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 26 days ago

    Alright Pep roulette time. What do we all think is gonna be the City lineup this weekend?

    For me:

    Ederson
    Walker Dias Laporte Cancelo
    Rodri Foden KdB
    Torres Jesus Sterling

    This is what I'll think they'll play but I'm very far from certain. Could be like 5 players different.

    1. Rinseboy
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      I think Mahrez starts

    2. Blush Response
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Has Foden played in the middle three much?

      I don't play close enough attention to their tactics but I thought he usually played in one of the wide forward roles.

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

        He hasn't, been almost always on the wings since lockdown.

      2. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        He usually does, but I feel against Burnley who have so little to offer offensively, Pep will either play Bernardo or Foden in midfield.

    3. Feed tha Sheep
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Foden one is driving me crazy..he could play and do well but he has let me down so much this year I don’t know why I still have him! So tempted to sell for Jota for -4...which could pay off well or fail??

    4. what\'s my name
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      yeah pritty much that could be starting XI

    5. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Same as yours but Gundogan instead of Foden

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        I don't think they'll play Gundo against Burnley. They don't need him against a team that is camping in their own box. I'm fairly sure of this.

        What I'm not sure is who they'll actually play to take advantage. It's probably something like:

        Rodri KdB Foden/Bernardo
        Torres/Mahrez Jesus/Aguero Sterling

    6. xHaTr
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      The fact that its this difficult shows why people steer clear

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Yeah well it's always hard but the points potential is there. You just have to be able to stomach some benchings and I'm prepared to do it this year.

    7. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Ederson
      Walker - Dias - Laporte - Cancelo
      Rodri
      Bernardo - KDB
      Torres - Jesus - Sterling

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Yeah it could be this.

        There are 3 toss-ups imo.

        Bernardo/Foden/Gundogan
        Torres/Mahrez
        Jesus/Sterling

      2. The Knights Template

          Walker has a 100% CS record, shouldn't he be in goal?

        • 10 Years

        I might do it in your shoes. I'm leaning no for my team because I'm capping KdB.

        1. Rinseboy
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          yeah if I had KDB he would be ny captain for sure. But will get my city mid next week now if needed for a -4 and reshuffle.

          I'm only doing it to get a better captain for this week really. Thanks!

        I'd be tempted.

        You are lacking a clear captaincy this week at the moment without Vardy or Salah

    11. what\'s my name

      which one is the best move for free:
      a. Ziyech to Jota
      b. Keane to Cancelo/Dias
      c. Kane to Bam to free up cash to do KDB/Salah next gw

      thx

      My squad is in a bit of a shambles now with so many players not starting. I think I may need to take a 4-point hit again, and try to recover some ground over the next few weeks. My eye has not been on the ball.

      1 FT, 3.5 ITB

      McCarthy / Button
      Chilwell / Justin / Lamptey* / Davies* / Mitchell*
      Podence / Foden* / Son / Fernandes / Grealish
      Brewster* / Werner / Vardy(c for this week)

      Thinking Brewster > DCL, but should I get rid of Ben Davies too? It would cost me 4 points.

      1. The Knights Template

        Brewster to dcl a good move. No hit.

      2. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        I'd take a hit here.

        By not taking hits you put yourself behind the curve. Brewster > DCL, Davies > Cancelo if you can afford that.

      Need to move out Maupay. Was set on Wilson (if fit), however those stats Bamford is producing are make things complicated.

      Thoughts lads?

        Hi All,

        Would you roll FT with this lot??

        Martinez
        Chilwell Tierney Telles
        Son Jota Bruno J.Rod
        Vardy(c) DCL Werner

        Steer Barkley Kilman Mitchell

        Thinking of taking the money out of Barkley and get Soucek in and save over a mill.

        Also considering Hames > Torres for City cover. Think his time may be up.

        Also thinking Martinez might need to be replaced soon.

        Only for this week, if you could 3 out of these 4, which one would MISS OUT?
        A)Salah
        B)KDB
        C)Vardy
        D)Bruno

        And which one would you captain this week?
        1)Salah
        2)KDB
        3)Vardy
        4)Bruno

        1. Rinseboy
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          controversial but I would leave Salah out this week as Jota is good enough. Captain KDB, Vardy, Bruno in that order

          Best Zaha replacement?

          I think Jota is a risk worth taking or maybe Harvey Barnes?

          2.9itb so can't stretch to ManC or Salah without a hit

          1. The Knights Template
            • 7 Years

            Barnes success would give you a week of awesome bragging rights.

          Taa, Zaha, Jimenez to Cancelo, Salah, Antonio/Watkins for a -4 is the right way to go?

            i wouldnt get Cancelo in now that Mendy and Zinchenko are fit

        5. Tony Martial
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Son ➡️ Sterling -4?

          For two weeks, before getting Mo back in GW 12. Have Kane don’t want to get rid of Son but i think It’ll be worth it - Sterling could go big in these next 2.

            1 month, 26 days ago

            I'm in a bit of a mess here and need some help. I only have two playing defenders so my FT transfer has to be used to get Saiss to another defender. Cancelo is the one i want but might not have enough funds to have both Salah and KDB unless i take -4 this GW and next GW.

            Is Cancelo worth it or should i go for Cougal/Cresswell instead?

            Also should i look at doing Son to Salah or Kane to Vardy for a hit? 4m in the bank 1FT

            Martinez
            Robbo Chilwell Saiss
            Son Grealish Fernandes Fornals Podence

              I prefer Dias

              Coufal, save your pennies and go shopping in a week or two.

              1 month, 26 days ago

              Just buy Cancelo or Dias (if you're more risk averse). Will pay off. I'd even do it for a hit this week.

              1. Zlatan F.C
                  1 month, 26 days ago

                  Saiss to Cancelo FT
                  Son to Salah/KDB for a hit this GW? or Kane to Vardy for a hit?

            4. Flair

              1 month, 26 days ago

              Will have Vardy so won't do it but the more I like the idea of Jota (C) this GW. Feel like the pricetag is the main barrier in people's thinking for doing so.

              1. The Knights Template
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 26 days ago

                The prophecy says there will be three plagues, Foden and Podence have come and gone.

                • 3 Years
                1 month, 26 days ago

                It's not the pricetag, just the fact that Salah is the better option between the two.

              A fit Antonio or Bamford?
              Bamford stays pretty decent tbh many shots, leaning towards Bamford. It will be for Werner in a week or two

              Which one would you prefer:

              A) A well rested De Bruyne at home
              B) A midweek brace scoring Bruno away from home

              Damn this is tough.
              Thoughts?
              Please help

                Bruno

                Bruno. Both have a decent fixture, Bruno has incredible form.

            7. Gudjohnsen
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 26 days ago

              Why do I have a feeling Bruno ain't a good captain choice this weekend?

              But I don't have Salah, KDB or Vardy so I guess I have to put it on Bruno or is DCL maybe a better option?

              1. Trophé Mourinho
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                1 month, 26 days ago

                I have it on Salah but I’m doubting that also, DCL my vice. I’m tempted just to put it on DCL
                Bruno’s a good captain tho imo

              2. NateDogsCats
                  1 month, 26 days ago

                  If I didn't have Vardy I'd be going Bruno personally, likes playing away and Southampton is the kind of team he likes playing against, they've improved defensively for sure of late but still play a high line and leave more space than others

                  He hasnt blanked in an away game so far

                  Looks in good form, no reason to suggest he wont come good again

                  Seems like the perfect game for uniteds style

                1ft, 2.8itb

                A) Foden, Kane, Robbo ➡️ KDB, Vardy, Cancelo/Dias (-8)

                B) Foden, Kane, Son ➡️ Jota, Vardy, KDB (-8)

                C) Foden, Kane, Son ➡️ Sterling, Watkins, KDB (-8)

                D) Son & Kane ➡️ KDB & Vardy (-4) and hope Foden plays

                  Definitely calm down

                  Only hit I would consider is Kane and Foden to Jota and Vardy

                  Selling Robbo or Son as part of a -8 is madness

                Thoughts on this guys? Current team is this;

                Martinez - 4.0
                Robbo - Zouma - Targett - Lamptey - Kilman
                Son - Bruno - Jrod - Barkley - Soucek
                Vardy - DCL - Adams

                By GW 12, I plan to have done...

                Targett, Jrod, Barkley & Vardy > Cancelo/Dias, Salah, Ziyech/Grealish & Watkins

                Seem okay or any big issues?

                Is this GTG ? Really want to save a FT, but scary without Salah or Vardy. But only .2 ITB so would mean a hit

                Martinez ( Forster )

                Chilwell - PVA - Cancelo ( Coufal, Neco )

                KDB(C) - Sterling - Fernandes - Grealish - Jota

                KDB - Sterling - Jota - Grealish

                    No, I'm stuck with Guaita on my normal team. Looking to downgrade him to a 4.0 keeper

                      Oh I see yea fine, don’t think I’d want to bench James. Could be him in the points not Chilwell, could go either way.
