SCOUT’S GAMEWEEK 25 PICKS

Pick the best Gameweek 25 players for a free chance to win £10k with Fantasy5 1
  • Richarlison (5.5): Two clubs with only one Premier League clean sheet between them this calendar year meet at Anfield this weekend, so targeting attackers over defenders in the Merseyside derby seems like the safest bet. With most of the main players in the two teams’ respective frontlines needing two or more attacking returns to exceed their Fantasy5 points targets, Richarlison requires just a single goal. That’s easier said than done, of course: the Brazilian hasn’t scored in the top flight since Gameweek 15. But a brace in the FA Cup last Wednesday was a confidence-booster that the former Watford winger can hopefully build on.
  • Jesse Lingard (7.5): A goal and a clean sheet point would see Jesse Lingard over his Fantasy5 threshold, eminently possible given that the on-loan Manchester United winger has had more shots than any other Premier League player bar Bruno Fernandes since his move to east London. The Hammers have kept five clean sheets in their last nine, meanwhile, with a fading Spurs goalless in three of their last four and facing a swift turnaround from their Europa League tie in Austria.
  • Ahmed Elmohamady (5.5): With Matthew Cash a major doubt for the visit of Leicester City, Aston Villa’s deputy right-back looks poised to fill in this weekend. He’ll be joining one of the most solid backlines in the Premier League, with Dean Smith’s side – or, rather, the superhuman Emiliano Martinez – keeping clean sheets in 12 of their 22 league matches this season, one of which was in the reverse fixture at Leicester. No other defender in this fixture can pass their Fantasy5 points total with just a clean sheet, so Elmohamady gets the nod.
  • Joao Cancelo (8.5): Given that they’ve kept clean sheets in 12 of their last 15 matches, it’s no surprise that Fantasy5 want Manchester City defenders to do a little more than register a shut-out to pass their points targets. Enter the constantly threatening Joao Cancelo, whose expected goal involvement figure (4.84) is the highest of any defender since his season debut in Gameweek 5.
  • Luke Shaw (8.5): The attack-minded left-back has been creating chances galore for Manchester United of late, carving out 34 opportunities over the last 13 Gameweeks – only Jack Grealish (£7.8m) has provided more in that time. A taker of corners and free-kicks, Shaw has four assists in the last three Gameweeks and another role in a United goal, plus a clean sheet against a Callum Wilson-less Newcastle, would do him very nicely in Fantasy5 terms.

LUKE’S GAMEWEEK 25 PICKS

  • Richarlison (5.5): The Brazilian is one of the few regularly starting attacking assets in this game to only need one goal to meet his quota, so that makes him highly appealing to me. Likely to be deployed in an advanced wide-left role or possibly more central like in recent weeks, he looks a shrewd pick. It helps that Liverpool have conceded seven goals in their last two games. 
  • Harry Kane (6.5): A target of 6.5 seems on the low side for the England centre-forward. Like most he will require two attacking returns to reach his value but who better to bank on? With penalties as a fallback and boasting a record of 11 goals in his last 12 games versus West Ham in the league, he looks a shrewd pick-up.  
  • Ahmed Elmohamady (5.5): The full-back is quite simply the only defender on show across both teams that will surpass his target if he can keep a clean sheet. Matty Cash looks set to be out of this game and so the Egyptian seems underpriced when compared to his colleagues. A clean sheet will be hard to come by of course but with Emiliano Martinez in goal behind him, anything is possible.
  • Phil Foden (8.5): This game looks incredibly tough to pick a winner from with points targets sky-high for most Man City players and, of course, Pep Guardiola roulette to navigate. In the end, I have plumped for the twinkling toes of Phil Foden. With Ilkay Gundogan’s injury status unknown at the time of writing, the onus for goals will have to come from elsewhere. Foden’s target seems more achievable than fellow wide man Raheem Sterling (10.5). Also, Arsenal have problems at left-back currently, having to field the more natural right-back Cedric in the absence of Kieran Tierney. If Foden starts wide right, it could be a bit of a mismatch. 
  • Joe Willock (5.5): Time for a bit of a punt. The Manchester United players’ points targets are very high due to them being heavy favourites for this game, with Bruno Fernandes (12.5) needing two goals and an assist to trump his target. Whilst this is achievable for a player of his quality, I prefer to chance the cheaper assets who only need one goal. Enter Willock, who I feel has impressed since his loan to Newcastle. His high energy levels and ability to counter at pace make him a threat in a game I expect possession to be dominated by the home side. Manchester United have also shipped two goals at home to Sheffield United and three goals at home to Everton in the last three weeks.

      Absolutely nowhere to hide for Pieters owners

      So it's not the same team.

        Trying to be too funny

  2. TheDragon
    • 3 Years

    I can confirm Lowton will get as a minimum one attacking return this evening

    1. ALI_G
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      that's fine

      12 points from tonight (6+3+3) will do

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 26 days ago

      And min 3 bonus

      1. ALI_G
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        I accounted for that in my workings

    3. Patio Kev
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      I’ve already spent 12 points on hits next week on the basis that Lawton’s 12 pointer tonight will cover them for free.

  3. Pukki Party
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    OMG Taylor!!!!

    1. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Bargain at 4.4

    2. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      1 point, 2 points? I don't care. RIP touch and go, Charlie Taylor is back.

  4. Little Red Lacazette
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    We need a Pope CS. Can't keep on regretting benching Emi.

  5. Pukki Blinders
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 26 days ago

    Both lining up in a 442? Could be a bloodbath when I’m hoping for a 0-0 ffs...

    1. TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Has 4-4 written all over it

    2. Top Lad Dakes. - all chips …
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      This will end 2-2 sadly, I bet. Can only hope for Areola saves and penalty save

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Ugh, Better to have low hopes than high ones I guess

        1. Top Lad Dakes. - all chips …
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          Exactly

  6. Top Lad Dakes. - all chips …
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    Feels odd being disappointed that Gundo(c) doesn’t get a second game given his returns already, but can’t help it nonetheless. Could’ve smackkkked Everton and get an enormous score, now I’m just sat here hoping for an unlikely 0-0 cos of Cancelo Stones Digne...

    Unforeseeable Mee injury meaning he likely misses out a second CS is annoying too

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 26 days ago

      You’re the type of person to win 100 million in the lottery and start crying over a speeding ticket

      1. Top Lad Dakes. - all chips …
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        That would be daft, and misses the point

      2. Rhodes your boat

        This

    2. FPL Pillars

      Love how you take CS as guaranteed 😀

        Pretty much is now

  7. JONALDINHO
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    No Mee, No Antonio, No Gundo(C), Stones and Cancelo at risk of benching, Dallas(-1). Week that started off so bright has literally gone wrong in every single way. Pain

    1. Top Lad Dakes. - all chips …
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      With you there. Luckily Dallas on my bench at least

    2. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      My rival has all of them and is on 114 points....

    3. BigBillyBass
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Bloody hell, it’s the grim reaper

  8. Top Lad Dakes. - all chips …
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    Right, 1-0 Fulham win with an Areola penalty save

  9. Super Saints
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    Lowton injured in warm-up, no other defenders in squad, special allowance for Burnley to put Mee in squad and start him and him score too much to ask?

    1. Top Lad Dakes. - all chips …
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      If only

  10. AC/DC AFC
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    Taylor back in will help Pope and Tark or Lowton owners seeking another clean sheet.

  11. Albrightondknight
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    It’s Wednesday and a new GW on Friday. We are running out of time for an announcement on Dgw 26 before the deadline. Will we get this info in time or not?
    If not do we go with a best guess for BB 26 and WC now?

    1. Zogzeg
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Could be season-defining either way.

  12. McPollolocco
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Which player for a 3-4 week long term?
      a) Rüdiger
      b) Lowton
      c) Dunk
      d) Taylor
      e) another 4.5 - 5.0 ml defender?

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        A looks nailed, defence looking solid

    • Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      "Touch & Go" 😮

      1. CRO KLOPP
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        KDB is also touch and go

    • MoSalad
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Areola, Bobby DCR, Lookman & Tarkowski let's go, I need some serious hauls to pay off for my massive big fat -12 this gw!!

      Predicting

      Tark headed goal from a corner
      Areola penalty save
      Lookman assist to Bobby DCR goal

      Be happy with that, anything else is fail.

    • Stupendous
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Chances Dias starts today?

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        50/50

      2. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        High

        1. Stupendous
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Hope so!

          Taylor and Dias both in would block rivals Barnes 12 pts!!!

        2. Stupendous
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          And I have Pope and Stones to hopefully match

          Although watch one of Stones and cancelo be out and Dias or Taylor haul

      3. CRO KLOPP
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Best chances after Ederson imo

      4. FPL Pillars
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        69%

      5. Hadebayor Mum
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 26 days ago

        I get Raphinha if he doesn’t play so I don’t know if I want him to start or not!

      6. Patio Kev
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Certainty I would have thought to give one of the others a rest.

      7. Camino Aleatorio
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        I expect him to start.

        Stones might rest.

    • Hadebayor Mum
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 26 days ago

      I know I’ve known about it for days, but seeing the teams still makes me cross about Mee. Not usually bitter but this one rankles when others have Tarkowski/Lowton. I’ll feel the same later when Gundo doesn’t play and the Sterling cappers come out to gloat.

      1. FPL Pillars
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        It’s part of the game. Burnley CS was intact so it wasn’t all for nothing.

      2. Camino Aleatorio
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        You need to make the deal with the Devil that my Mini-League rival has. He gets all the FPL breaks.

        But, on the flip side.

        My rival gave up his eternal soul and the Devil is going to have his way with him in the underworld.

        1. Hadebayor Mum
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Swings and roundabouts, I suppose!

    • Patio Kev
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Can everybody with Fulham or Burnley assets just do a deal now for a 0-0 draw ? We can inform the FA and the teams won’t even need to kick a ball.

      1. CRO KLOPP
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        I have Lookman,so I will pass on that

      2. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Nope, Westwood will score.

      3. The Train Driver
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Nah, I want 2 more goals and a CS from Lowton...

    • Camino Aleatorio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Fulham is no gimmie for Burnley. I think Fulham is going to rest Pope quite a bit - at least 6 to 8 shots.

      I hope they get 20 shots and he stops them all

      But I am not expecting a Cleanie.

    • Saka_me_sideways
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Mee and pieters the only players i brought in from Burnley... both not playing 🙄
        On the plus side, I don’t have to watch Burnley V Fulham.

      • Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        Imagine if Lowton scores again. 30 pointer. Would be one for the ages.

        1. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          He's not due until 2029, now.

      • Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Lowton no PL goals for 8 years and then 2 in 2 games?

        1. FPL Pillars
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Got a taste now... but more likely won’t score for many years to come.

        2. CRO KLOPP
          • 3 Years

          OG next?

        Gareth bales agents comments reported today are utterly bizarre.

        Basically, you can't question gareth, look at what he has won in europe, and he's made more money than the lot of us combined. So don't dare question his (non) form this season.
