Scout Squad

The Scout Squad’s best players for FPL Double Gameweek 26

Players with two fixtures in Double Gameweek 26 predictably dominate the Scout Squad selection this week.

Indeed, not a single player with just one match in the coming Gameweek has been nominated by our panel.

For those new to this feature, 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 writer’s 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

I am looking to the Spurs and Fulham defences for Double Gameweek 25. Matches against Burnley and the Cottagers offer plenty of clean sheet potential, which is why Spurs sit top of the Season Ticker for ‘defence’ in Double Gameweek 26.

I’ve gone with Hugo Lloris and Davinson Sanchez as they feel the two most-likely starters in Jose Mourinho’s back-line.

Meanwhile, Alphonse Areola has the perfect combination of matches for Double Gameweek 26. A trip to Crystal Palace offers the possibility of a clean sheet given their record with Wilfried Zaha while a meeting with Spurs could give him the chance to significantly add to his 83 saves this season.

Ola Aina is joint-top for key passes among Fulham defenders over the last four matches and ranks best for shots on target too.

Luke Shaw has been a creative powerhouse of late, fashioning 15 chances in the last four matches, at least six more than any other defender.

One of those is Trent Alexander-Arnold although his eight key passes is still the third-highest among players in his position, so I think we could see him ticking over with points again soon.

Bruno Fernandes is starting to feel like an auto-include, even though he faces Chelsea this week. It is the second Double Gameweek fixture against Crystal Palace that appeals. Over their last four matches, the Eagles are the Premier League’s second-worst side for expected goals conceded (xGC).

Meanwhile, nobody has been afforded more big chances than Mohamed Salah and Ilkay Gündogan over that same period.

The former faces a Sheffield United side without their three first-choice centre-backs in the first of Liverpool’s Double Gameweek fixtures while the latter has been so key to Manchester City that I am sure he will get significant game-time across home meetings with West Ham and Wolves.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin is my pick of the forwards considering Everton’s Double Gameweek 26 fixtures. Southampton have conceded nine goals across their last four (which does not include the infamous Old Trafford defeat anymore) while West Bromwich Albion have given up at least two goals in eight of their last 10.

Jamie Vardy is among those players currently joint-top for big chances over their last four matches while only three players have a superior figure for minutes per expected goal involvement (xGI) over the same period than Mbaye Diagne.

NEALE SAID

I’ll let the others do the talking on the widely selected assets of Double Gameweek 26, as there will be few of you who are wondering why the likes of Bruno Fernandes, Harry Kane and Ilkay Gundogan have made the cut.

Instead, I’ll take you through some of the less-obvious selections.

While Son Heung-min looks like he’s running on fumes of late, Gareth Bale has strung together three impressive appearances in Europe and on the home front – even if some of them were cameos off the bench.

Fitness and game-time are possible downsides with the Welshman but he’s looked sharper and more motivated over the last week, with a benching in the Europa League on Wednesday looking like a strong indicator that he will make Jose Mourinho’s starting XI this weekend.

Attacking returns in his last three competitive appearances is a neat reflection of his renaissance, while he had more final third touches than any other player bar Son in the West Ham game – despite only featuring as a second-half substitute. But this is as much an ‘eye test’ selection as anything else, with Bale looking more Wales talisman than washed-up Madridista of late.

Seven clean sheets in 12 matches on the road makes Emiliano Martinez a no-brainer for a Double Gameweek 26 long-list but I’ve nominated Ahmed Elmohamady as a cheaper route into the Villa defence, with the Egyptian looking a secure-ish starter given that Matty Cash is sidelined for the foreseeable future.

Elmohamady has one of the best minutes-per-chance-created averages among Fantasy defenders this season and even if that figure comes from precious little game-time, we FPL veterans know he loves a cross from his past exploits at Hull and Sunderland.

Mbaye Diagne has a decent run of matches coming up, starting with a double-header at the Hawthorns. He’s joint-top for big chances among FPL forwards since his arrival in January and, on a related note, sits above his positional peers for expected goal involvement, too.

His shot count would look even more impressive if he didn’t have a frustrating knack of being caught offside, although that in itself is perhaps encouraging as it implies he is always looking for that half-yard beyond the last defender.

TOM SAID…

Double Gameweek players unsurprisingly make up my entire 18-man squad this time.

Aston Villa looked short of ideas without playmaker Jack Grealish last weekend, and though his absence will put more pressure on their defence, it’s hard to look past Emiliano Martínez as the top goalkeeper pick. The 28-year-old has made more saves than any other stopper in recent weeks, with the Argentinian accompanying Alphonse Areola and Sam Johnstone.

Manchester City have conceded just four goals in their last 17 Premier League matches, which is why João Cancelo is so appealing, with his kinder priced team-mate John Stones joining him. 

I also like Luke Shaw, who has created more chances than any other defender in the last six matches. He’s also improved his ability from set-pieces, which is relevant with Wednesday night’s opponents Crystal Palace often struggling to properly defend crosses into the box.

While Everton’s defence isn’t exactly watertight, I’ve found a spot for Lucas Digne too ahead of games against Southampton and West Bromwich Albion. The Saints have conceded the highest number of chances from their right-flank over their last six, which adds to his appeal, and I’m also willing to take a risk on differential Ainsley Maitland-Niles. Following Semi Ajayi’s red card at Burnley, the on-loan Arsenal man shifted out to a wider attacking role, which manager Sam Allardyce has hinted we might see more of in the coming weeks. I also think Albion have looked much better now that their new arrivals have been integrated into the starting XI.

Further forward, Bruno Fernandes is an obvious inclusion given his rate of returns. The Portuguese has now scored in each of his last four league games, bringing in a massive 45 FPL points across that period. 

He’s joined in midfield by Mohamed Salah, Son Heung-min and İlkay Gündoğan. Kevin De Bruyne is really unfortunate not to make the squad, and he will be making an appearance in my own team, but somebody had to miss out given Harvey Barnes’ form. His goal against Villa was his 13th of the season in all competitions, yet you get the feeling there is still more to come from him. 

Up front, Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy are excellent options, plus Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who is now looking much sharper and has quietly racked up four attacking returns in his last three league appearances. The forward list is completed by differential Mbaye Diagne and Ollie Watkins, both of whom look the pick of the budget striker options this week.

ANDY SAID

As ever with Manchester City it’s not a question of should we triple up, it’s just a question of which three we pick. It’s hard to look against the double-up in defence, but double attack provides a little bit of a differential at this point. With Ilkay Gündogan you get incredible value, and with Kevin De Bruyne you get a player who’s registering 0.73 expected goal involvements (xGI) every 90 minutes. That’s only beaten by Bruno Fernandes (0.74) for midfielders playing regular minutes.

Despite major concerns over Liverpool losing another key player in Jordan Henderson, it’s difficult to look past Trent Alexander-Arnold. Sheffield United have registered just 4.71 expected goals (xG) in the last six matches, the third-worst total in the league. You’d expect defensive returns in that game, with a potential cagey match against Chelsea to follow. Only Luke Shaw and James Justin have higher xGI than Alexander-Arnold over their last six matches when it comes to defenders.

Even with Tottenham Hotspur struggling in their last few matches I can’t look past the attacking double-up. While they’re short of goals in their last half-dozen fixtures, they have played four of the five best defences for expected goals conceded (xGC) this season in West Ham, Brighton, Chelsea and Man City. Liverpool weren’t exactly pushovers in Gameweek 20, either. In fact, if you look at the games outside of this, Harry Kane has scored against West Brom, Sheffield United, Fulham and Leeds United, which were the other fixtures that made up the Lilywhites’ last nine games.

    Would you start Raphinha or Bamford?It's really difficult.Any thoughts?

    1. antis0cial
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Raph, he's been looking fantastic recently

      1. wulfrunian
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        cheers.Currently or Raphinha.Bamford though has scored a hat trick vs Villa...

    2. Hybrid.power
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      As in, which should you bench and which should start? I'd start Raphinha

    3. Krafty Werks
      • 6 Years

      Raph, Raph, Raph...

    4. FPL Pillars
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Raph for me with Phillips out, better stats, on all set pieces. Both could easily return

    5. highsguy
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Villa concede to midfielders more than forwards (look at recent games where they conceded) + Grealish's absence would open up space for midfielders too. Raphinha also on better form

      • wulfrunian
        • 4 Years

        cheers all

        I really hate these bullshit stats of x has scored 3 against Villa. Makes zero mathematical sense. It’s a game of football.

      • Eh, just one more thing ...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Raph purely on how he’s looked for a while ... dangerous, creating loads of chances, on set plays and has a goal in him .... it a tricky one for sure though.

      • LarryDuff
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Raphina for sure

    6. The Head-Ake
      • 4 Years

      2nd in ML. Both leader and 3rd place guy always captain Bruno. 45 points difference between me and leader.

      Captain Kane or Bruno?

      1. antis0cial
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Kane

      2. Hybrid.power
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Kane if you are trying to make gains on the leader

        1. The Head-Ake
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          But in case Bruno scores and Kane misses, Ill fall back even further yeah?

          The risk is worth it here I suppose?

          1. Hybrid.power
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            Well captaincy is one of the biggest opportunities to make gains. If you captain the same players you're relying on all the other players to make those gains. I presume you have a lot of the same players anyway?

            1. The Head-Ake
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 21 days ago

              Yes more of less the same

              Thanks, an insight for sure

      3. Krafty Werks
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Kane

      4. FPL Pillars
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Cap who you think gets the most points

        1. ALI_G
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          that's great advice

          are you also saying pick the other 10 players who get the most points, revolutionary!

      5. The Head-Ake
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Thanks all

    7. jimmyharte
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Are grealish and Maddison out?

      Is it worth just playing triple captain on kane instead of bench boost? As I currently have the above 2 and need to get salah out to bring kane in.

      1. Krafty Werks
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Grealish likely out for Leeds and Madds waiting to hear on severity of hip injury i think? He's out of Europa tonight anyway so guess he could easily miss Arsenal on Sunday too?

      2. NateDogsCats
          2 months, 21 days ago

          If you're not playing BB and want to keep Salah could you lose Grealish and Maddison to two 5.0 or so mids to fund it? Maddison likely to be out a while, Smith very unlikely to say whether Grealish is available or not but if his rumoured injury is true then he'll be out a few weeks

          1. jimmyharte
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            Cheers guys that's the thing. I need to sell salah to bring in kane. If I am to play my bb I'll need to sell maddy and grealish now to. Would be -8.

            I would of had all players and bench on dgws

            1. NateDogsCats
                2 months, 21 days ago

                No chance you could just lose Maddison and Grealish though to afford Kane? If you pick to 5m mids (e.g. Lookman) you'll have around 5m spare from that

                1. NateDogsCats
                    2 months, 21 days ago

                    *two

              Vardy just

              Better team and fairly equal fixtures given upturn at Fulham. Vardy has quietly outdone Kane 11-4 in the past 2 weeks: Liverpool City the difference.

            4. Pedaso Pirates
              • 7 Years

            Any idea how long Matty Cash would be out? Thinking of getting El Mohamady with a view of him playing BGW29.

            1. antis0cial
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 21 days ago

              El Mo great short term option but every chance Cash is back by 29 I think

            2. Krafty Werks
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 21 days ago

              Should be back for 28 or 29?

            No options really standing out, but feel I need Kane so...
            a) Ings + Bamford to Kane + Brewster

                      Oops, my mistake. The moves are good and should pay off if Kane returns. KDB is a good forward-looking move

                      Might do, think Rodgers will switch it up, he did it last week primarily to deal with Grealish but he also brought him on in the EL once or twice in the same position so it might be an option when he wants extra cover at RB in bigger games, could definitely happen again against Arsenal to deal with Saka / Auba

                      doubt it, but I got him last week expecting RB or RWB, he gets forward regardless

                    Bruno 30%
                    Gundo 20%
                    Salah 10%

                      DCL for me if no Kane.

                      If you don't get Kane and you're set on using TC, then def DCL imo

                        Same, and probably going for DCL

                          Yeah reckon I’ll end up with DCL

                          Initial plan was Kane, then had it on DCL and very tempted, but I've hit the button with it on Bruno. Sure I'll change it ten times over tomorrow and probably go between these and BB too before the deadline

                        Thoughts on J. Rodriguez as Grealish replacement? (No DCL) Or rather do H.Barnes?

                        Gundo (2), Salah (5) and Bruno (5) - all had double blanks, Gundo only played 1 match
                        Kane (5+8=13) - 1G, 1A and 2 BAPS
                        Martinez (3+13=16) - 1CS, 1PS and 2 BAPS
                        Barnes (3+13=16) - 1G, 1A, 2CS and 3 BAPS
                        DCL (1+17=18) - 3G, 3 BAPS

                        A) Ings to DCL
                        B) Rashford to Gundogan , Ings to Kane (-4)?

                          B looks quite tempting, but selling Rashford before a DGW seems weird

                          DCL too big a gamble on TC? Fixtures are decent on a double but I just wonder if their inconsistency or perhaps a ‘not a big name player’ prejudice it’s putting me off?

                              He is still returning from injury but he's picked up good points in his last few, doesn't tend to get bonus much but he was very consistently picking up points when in form earlier in the season, even a 5 and a 6 in these two games would give a nice return and given the opposition he could do more than that

                              How do we think Leicester will line out without Maddison? Interested to see if Pereira might still play RW in front of Castagne or if Rodgers does dome jigger pokery. Possible Tielemans as No 10.
