The Scout Squad’s top picks for FPL Gameweek 15

Just in time for Christmas, the Scout Squad is here with their best players for Gameweek 15.

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 narrowed down to a squad of 15 (with the starting XI not exceeding a total cost of £83.0m) for the weekly Scout Picks selection ahead of the FPL deadline at 11:00 GMT on Saturday.

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 Christmas Eve.

NEALE SAID…

It always looked likely that there’d be triple-ups from Manchester City and Liverpool in my Scout Squad selection this week – the only question was over who I’d nominate.

Benjamin Mendy tends to be reserved for the plum home fixtures these days and, after a breather in the EFL Cup in midweek, I fancy him to start.

The Frenchman should be able to take advantage of my own team’s rather suspect right flank, where we’ve deployed DeAndre Yedlin, Emil Krafth, Javier Manquillo and even Jacob Murphy this season – which shows how much of a problem position it has become.

Having watched the shambles at Brentford on Tuesday, I’m even going for the City defensive double-up with Ederson.

Pep Guardiola’s policy of fielding relatively conservative line-ups has contributed to City scoring one goal or fewer in eight of their last ten league matches, but Kevin De Bruyne continues to be deployed in central positions and I sense a monster haul is due based on his impressive underlying figures.

Liverpool’s superb display at Palace last weekend not only solidifies my decision to go big on the Reds’ premium assets but also leads me to select Aston Villa’s Bertrand Traore, who produced perhaps his best display of the season in Gameweek 14.

Up against the suspect Patrick van Aanholt, who opposition teams are clearly targeting, Traore offers a saving of a couple of million on Jack Grealish to help us accommodate some of the must-have big-hitters elsewhere.

Another budget midfielder, Raphinha, has been catching my eye recently, and I’m evidently not alone. Fifth among all FPL assets for chances created over the last four Gameweeks, he is also joint-third for attempts on goal.

While Burnley are back to something approaching their obdurate best, matches against this gung-ho Leeds side can throw up all kinds of scorelines.

That’s why I’ve also gone for Chris Wood, given that the Whites have conceded the most headed chances, opportunities from set plays and, crucially, goals over the previous four Gameweeks.

While we’re on that subject, winless Sheffield United have allowed the most chances from dead-ball situations over the course of the season, so the ever-present Michael Keane, who has two goals already to his name in 2020/21, gets the nod alongside Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Lastly, a word on Harry Kane. While the FPL exodus continues (100,000+ transfers out this week), he next faces a Wolves side striving to rediscover their identity amid system and personnel changes.

A dip in form from Willy Boly and the flip-flopping between formations has resulted in the Wolves backline looking uncharacteristically suspect of late and they are without a clean sheet in seven.

Kane might have blanked in successive matches but he has still racked up more shots than any other forward over the last four Gameweeks, so I expect him to come good on Sunday.

TOM SAID…

Liverpool’s clean sheet prospects look as good as any in Gameweek 15, with their opponents West Bromwich Albion registering a measly 0.05 expected goals (xG) against Aston Villa last time out. Jake Livermore’s red card on 37 minutes didn’t help matters, but regardless, it’s hard to see them troubling a Reds’ backline which has conceded just four league goals since the start of November. Andrew Robertson is my preferred option, given how open Albion looked down their right-side on Sunday.

I’m also backing Manchester City and Everton’s defences, via Rúben Dias and Michael Keane. No team has taken fewer shots on the road than Newcastle United this term, while Sheffield United haven’t done much better themselves, netting the joint-fewest goals in the Premier League. The Blades have looked vulnerable defending set-pieces too, which could benefit the Toffees’ aerial threats, including Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Keepers Emiliano Martínez, Alex McCarthy and Lukasz Fabiański, plus defenders Vladimir Coufal and Stuart Dallas complete the picks at the back.

Further forward, the inclusion of heavy hitters Mohamed Salah, Kevin De Bruyne, Bruno Fernandes and Harry Kane largely speak for themselves, so I’ll dedicate a bit more time to some of my other call-ups.

Aston Villa are bang in-form at the moment after taking seven points from nine, with Jack Grealish constantly involved. Over the last two Gameweeks, which has coincided with a move into the middle, he leads the way amongst midfielders for chances created and penalty area touches, and ranks joint-fourth for shots. Teammate Ollie Watkins’ luck will surely change soon too, having seen multiple VAR calls go against him in recent weeks.

I also think Leeds United will fancy their chances against Burnley in Sunday’s early kick-off. There is rarely a dull moment with Marcelo Bielsa’s side, but their approach has generally served them well this season, especially going forward. Raphinha has been posting some encouraging numbers, while Patrick Bamford continues to offer value up front. However, I don’t see them having it all their own way, and given how vulnerable they look defending crosses, Chris Wood could be worth a punt.

ANDY SAID…

It doesn’t get much better than Liverpool with the best attack in the league (27.24xG) versus West Brom, the worst defence in the league (27.59 xGC). Mohamed Salah looks to be the stand out pick to me, although it’s very harsh that I haven’t included Sadio Mané as well, but with Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson capable of points at both ends it feels better to include an extra Manchester City attacker instead.

Ever since the 24 points against Liverpool in Gameweek 4, Jack Grealish has continued to perform well for FPL managers. He has recorded 51 points since then in nine matches at an average of 5.66 points per game. I’m not expecting Crystal Palace to be turned over like they were against Liverpool but Aston Villa’s attack is averaging 1.71xG per game, one of the highest in the league.

It’s foolish to ever try and predict Pep Guardiola but I’m doing so once again. John Stones wasn’t even in the squad for the midweek clash with Arsenal in the EFL Cup, so you’d expect him to take his place back in the Premier League against Newcastle. He’s started in four of the last five Gameweeks, recording a clean sheet in each match. I can’t imagine Newcastle will have too much to concern Manchester City this week.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin is in somewhat of a goal drought having not scored in the last three Gameweeks. He has of course registered three assists in that time though to keep the points ticking over. In that time he’s had five shots in the box and 1.11xG. The numbers are slightly down with all the injuries that Everton have had, but he’s done enough to feel a little hard done by for not scoring. I expect that drought to be broken against a Sheffield United side that haven’t kept a clean sheet this season.

DAVID SAID

I am a big fan of the Aston Villa defence once again, their expected goals conceded (xGC) over the last four matches, the best of any Premier League side. That should help Martínez offer decent potential for a home meeting with Crystal Palace.

Andrew Robertson remains the most dangerous Liverpool defender in my view, having assisted in three of the last seven matches and collecting three clean sheets too. I can’t see West Bromwich Albion learning how to boost their poor goal-scoring record at Anfield, let alone with Sam Allardyce in charge.

The Manchester City defence is also proving reliable right now, as John Stones and Rúben Dias’ partnership goes from strength-to-strength. Pep Guardiola’s men are yet to concede a goal with the Englishman in the team since Gameweek 10 – the only game they were breached coming when he dropped out. That said, I still prefer Dias for the strength of starts, only because of the time of year we’re currently in.

Mohamed Salah looks a dangerous asset not to own right now. Over the last four matches he is joint-top of the Premier League for shots on target, while West Bromwich Albion are beaten only by Leeds for goals conceded in 2020/21.

I also fancy Sadio Mané, who is boosted by the crossing ability of Trent Alexander-Arnold. He was goalless without the right-back starting in the team between Gameweeks 11 and 13, but benefited from his return against Crystal Palace.

I also think Kevin De Bruyne is due a big haul against Newcastle. The Magpies have conceded at least five goals in three of their last five Premier League trips to the Etihad Stadium while De Bruyne is top for expected goal involvement (xGI) over the last four Gameweeks, rather unfortunate not to have scored and assisted more often. Given Newcastle’s current state, I believe now is the time for Manchester City to show us what they can do.

Raphinha has been threatening to go big in recent games and now has three attacking returns across his last five. I think he can provide some much-needed value over Christmas.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin is a key asset for Gameweek 15 considering he’s up against Sheffield United’s brittle defence and has 15 attacking returns in 14 matches this season.

      Kilman is probably the only one that might play.

    2. waldo666
      • 10 Years

    Is a Trent and Matip double up viable for the double GW?

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year

      If Matip stays fit,

  5. Stupendous

      I'd just play Bednarek

      1. Stupendous
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 29 days ago

        Bednarek Robbo Coufal (Chilwell Kilman)

          3 months, 29 days ago

          Yeah those three should start
          I'd look at getting rid of Kilman sharpish. Can't see him starting again unfortunately

          1. Bushwhacker
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 29 days ago

            I was thinking the same but then Wolves played MUCH better with a flat back four . . .

  6. John Nerdelbaum
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 29 days ago

    Defence of:
    James Lamptey Stones Taylor Mitchell

    Lamptey > Coufal (-4) to afford Vardy to Kane next week. Might have to do it tonight if Coufal is rising

    Anyone looking at Burnley defence for the next three fixtures - LEE (a), SHU (H), FUL (H)? FH18 for me.

    1. waldo666

      Got Taylor in for Semedo this week.

    2. La Roja

      Yeah I’ll bench Taylor this GW then play next couple

    3. Mile Plankton

        C

      • Calvin Valance
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 29 days ago

        I think C is too aggressive as you might benefit from more transfers later on. I prefer Stones to Dier. He's playing well and Spurs look a bit wobbly at present

      • Hitman MHK
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 29 days ago

        Grealish only looks good for this week. Next three thereafter I reckon there are better options out there.

        I'm assuming FH19?

        1. La Roja
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 29 days ago

          Nope FH18

          Grealish looks superb though, killing my rank lol

          1. Keeptrying

            Definition of set and forget.
            Never bench, never captain.

          2. Hitman MHK
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 29 days ago

            My bad, meant to say FH18! With all considered and being a long term, I'd go C

            1. La Roja
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years

        2. Keeptrying
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 29 days ago

          Think Grealish is fixture proof - in both directions.
          He can haul and blank against anyone.

          1. La Roja
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 29 days ago

            Agreed

          2. Hitman MHK
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 29 days ago

            He's fantastic, don't disagree. Maybe it's just me trying to talk myself into trading him to Son. Want that Salah KDB Bruno Son midfield haha!!

            1. Keeptrying
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 29 days ago

              Son of course is no bad shout either. But also 2 mill more expensive. Anything else you can do with it?
              Or can you get a power 5 midfield?

              1. Hitman MHK
                • 8 Years
                3 months, 29 days ago

                Can go for a power 5 mid, but don't want to compromise my defence too much. Top 1k now so every decision I make has reproductions. Not having Spurs is giving me nightmares haha

                1. Keeptrying
                  • 7 Years

                  Great rank, keep it up!
                  In that case you do you 🙂

          3. Calvin Valance
            • 11 Years
            3 months, 29 days ago

            I prefer Kane and Raphinha, he's such a good midfield pick.

            I like the Son Adams combo next, particularly as Adams has goal and assist potential.

            Rodrigo plays a bit too deep for me

            1. Flynny
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 29 days ago

              Thanks guys. I don't know a great deal about rodrigo...

              Raphinha always looks very involved....

              Son v kane is a toss up...so it's a very close call!!

        5. BeWater
            3 months, 29 days ago

            This is the kind of team I might end up with in 19 to BB. Would do FH18.

            Johnstone McCarthy
            TAA Balbuena Zouma Coufal Dallas
            Raphinha Salah Soucek Bruno Son
            Rodrigo Kane Adams

                  Cheers Camzy 🙂 I would WC to a team that looks like that with a couple of players that better cover 17 & 18. Then make the transfers to get to that team. I think once you fully commit to BB19 and FH18 it saves a lot of aggravation.

                    It does. Jealous you still have WC.

                Repost: to get Robertson (GW16 not this upcoming GW), who to downgrade?
                A. Grealish > Raphinha/Soucek

                    How much value tied up in DCL and Grealish. It's a tight call so that might sway it for me. I like both moves.

                      Good point mate and Grealish has to go for that. Got DCL since GW1 I realised ...

                          I have Grealish and because I bought him at 7.8 I have no problem selling him on my WC.

                    I still have no idea what to do in 18 or 19. Looking at all the fixture rumours it’s best to wait right? Forget the price rise and falls for now?

                      You have to be both patient and decisive at the same time 😉
                      Follow your plan, but be able / willing to adjust.

                      That’s what I’m trying to do. It’s tough though.

                      Lost out 0.2 on Robbo rise and Mitchell drop yesterday. Plus looks like I’ll lose out on Dier rise and James drop this evening/tomorrow.... Robbo, Stones & Dier all options I’m monitoring before deciding which way to go.

                      Whether the Man U vs Burnley fixtures falls in GW18 is what will decide it for me..

                      Play Adams or Soucek?

                        3 months, 29 days ago

                        I’d play Adams

                        • 11 Years

                        Play Adams, he's got great goal and assist potential. Soucek has good aerial threat so that's less reliable, so better as a bench option

                      3. BeWater
                          3 months, 29 days ago

                          Adams definitely. I have him so hoping for some returns!

                          3 months, 29 days ago

                          Robertson or TAA? What we thinking?

                            Robbo if you can't get both

                            Was just going to ask that- I am thinking TAA almost as differential pick! Showing signs of getting back to good attacking form

                              Both are superb picks but I just lean towards Trent. I was one of those that benched Trent last boxing day. This shouldn't dictate future transfers but it makes me always prefer Trent.

                              On form Robbo without question.

                              Priced out of Robbo yesterday so TAA for me.

                              Where is everyone seeing this? I have only heard/seen by Ben Crellin that the Utd vs Burnley may be moved to GW18. Nothing about a City DGW19 though?

                            0.1 ITB 1FT

                            my plan is to get an XI out for gw18 using my squad, then FH for 19, obviously I can't BB then but I can make an awesome starting XI.

                            With Chilwell and Lamptey likely to be out this weekend, I'm a Walker or Lewis rotation away from being short of defenders.
                            Mahrez might well not start either, and Gros hasn't started the last two.
                            I wanted to Upgrade Werner to Kane for next week, with Kane having Fulham+Leeds at home and a GW18 fixture.
                            But doing that requires me to save 1.6 million on a transfer elsewhere. Chilwell is 5.8 for me so would need to be a 4.2 or less to get rid of him. Similarly Gros is 5.8, so can't bring in a 4.2 midfielder as none exist!
                            Obviously could well be punished again by not having Salah. But don't wanna start taking point hits. Was thinking possibly Lamptey to Lindelof/Shaw especially if Man U have a fixture in gw18 or a double in gw17 confirmed. Obviously won't be able to get Kane in for free then though.

                            Any suggestions much appreciated, i'm sliding down the overall standings week by week and finding it hard to arrest my fall

                            Feel like I should just captain Salah, but a KDB haul against Newcastle seems oh so possible...

                              Having them both is the way forward which ever captain you choose.

                              Why would you sell DCL this GW?

                                Chilwell the likely factor.

                                  It would depend on rest of his team i suppose, perhaps bench chilwell

                                He has very little chances when his assisters are out injured; Digne, Rodriguez and probably Richarlison too after todays match.

                            How's this look for a GW19 non BB side? Adams may become Antonio if fit.

                                Didn’t we get a statement saying Antonio was back most likely in Jan?

                                  Has a chance at playing Vs Brighton on boxing day. Emphasis on chance I think.

                              Thoughts on this -4?
                              Chilwell and Lamptey to Matip and Coufal?

                                  What does the rest of your defence look like?

                                • Rotation's Alter Ego
                                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                                  Probably changes depending on chip strategy, but looks sound. Personally looking at Dias (Stones if you're brave / a lunatic) or Dier over Matip.

                                  Avoid the hit if possible obvs, but assume it's needed here, most defences are crumbling it seems.
