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.

    Anyone fancy Vardy to outscore Kane this GW?

    1. tinear
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Close imo

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Good record vs Arsenal but unsurprisingly poor record vs Burnley (3 goals in 11 games in PL)

    2. UNDERWORLD7
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Either around the same or Kane scores more imo

    3. The Mantis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      was really weighing up the option of Vardy over Kane transfer, but I have Barnes as cover and no Son so had to get a Spurs in - still not massively confident on my Kane TC pick either though

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Spurs attacking stats have been awful recently in the PL. Not sure they can just turn on their form like that. 4 goals in 6 games and only 5 big chances is pretty tepid.

        1. Going Home
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Kane missed a few of those games. Backing Kane to return to his flat-track bully ways

      I think we need to see how Leicester approach the game tonight 1st. Think it is being overlooked a bit.
      0-0 from the 1st leg and all to play for.

      How much will this take from Leicester in the DGW?

  2. Jamb0
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    On a BB...

    Martinez
    Dias Alonso Rudiger Shaw
    Fernandes Salah Gundo Grealish
    Kane Watkins

    Areola Bamford Raphina Struijk

    Plan is Grealish to Barnes... anything else worth a hit? (0.1 short of Bamford -> DCL)

    1. Going Home
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Short after Grealish to Barnes? Would look to maybe shave that 0.1 off a replacement mid to get DCL in

  3. Podorsky
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    KDB or Kane

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Oh Kevin

    2. UNDERWORLD7
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Kane

    3. The Mantis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      very tough! Kane as surely there's no rotation risk

  4. cuppatea78
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Is McCarthy (EVE away) > Areola (CRY away, TOT hone) worth a -4 in order to get another DGW player on my bench as I am using bench boost this week?

    That would leave Bamford as the only player in my squad with 1 game this week.

    1. tbos83
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Am in exactly this dilemma - reckon it probably isn't due to Mccarthy having the double in 27

      • Going Home
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Nooooo

        You’re asking a lot from a spare keeper. Not to mention McCarthy has a double (which would hopefully lead to save points) against city next week

      • HashAttack
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Brought in Schmeichel for Lloris in dgw19 - plus 10 points on the deal (17-4 vs 3)

        1. Going Home
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Did Leicester have a DGW in 20?

          1. HashAttack
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            There is that, though I wouldn't expect much from McC v MCI

            I would say definitely take the hit if it was for Ederson

    2. mdm
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Would you BB these lot?

      Pope (tot, LEI),
      Mitchell (FUL, MUN),
      Raph (AVL)
      Dallas (AVL)

      1. Stupendous
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Yes but can you change Mitchell?

        1. mdm
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Yes, to Targett for -4. Worth it?

      2. Podorsky
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Not sure, I have Mendy, Lowton, Banford and Struijk. I'm thinking it might be better to BB just after a wild car?

      3. Going Home
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I’m boosting two of those, plus Dallas (starting Mitchell)

    3. Littlebitwizardoföz
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Son to Barnes for - 4? I'm tempted...

      1. UNDERWORLD7
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        If you have Kane then yes, but still risky

        1. Littlebitwizardoföz
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          I do! I'm fearful of Barnes v Arsenal

      2. Jamb0
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Is Son injured?

        1. Littlebitwizardoföz
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          No

        2. Kudo Warrior
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          No, why would you ask that? lol

          1. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Well why else would someone logically ditch Son for a hit

      3. John Nerdelbaum
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Nope

      4. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 19 days ago

        It’s silly

      5. Krafty Werks
        • 6 Years

        PUKE!!

      6. cuppatea78
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Not for me

    4. Quan MisTaka
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      A) Shaw to Cancelo (-4) BB
      B) Dallas to Cancelo (-4) BB
      C) Save transfer to GW27

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 19 days ago

        C

      2. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Why would you possibly sell Shaw?

        B.

    5. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Fulham or Villa...

      For gw29 purposes, what team would you rather double up on in defence?

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Both will concede imo.

        1. norab
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Fulham

      2. Boly Would
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Probably Villa

    6. Super Jack Grealish
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Thinking of Grealish + Mitchell > Barnes + Digne/Perriera (-4) BB

      Who’s the better option out of Digne/Perriera/Regullion

      Martinez*,
      Cancelo*, Dias*, Lowton*
      Salah*, Bruno* (Grealish)*, Gundo* Raphinia,
      Kane (C)*, DCL*

      Pope*, Bamford, Dallas, Mitchell*

      1 FT 2.0 ITB

      1. norab
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        From those 3 I'd have Digne

    7. norab
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Pereira or Shaw for the double?

    8. ZoumasBloomers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Would you get rid of Stones or Cancelo for a hit?

      I’d play Dallas and bring in Kane (TC) for Bamford

      1. norab
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        What's the hit? -4, -8?

        If for -4 then yes and I'd drop Stones but you have to be prepared for Cancelo to not start on of the games.

        Don't think I could do it for -8

      2. Jamb0
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Nah... they have 2 doubles in a row so should still get at least 3 out of 4 games

      3. Wild Rover
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        😯

      4. Boris Bodega
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        No I wouldn't do that

      5. Make Arrows Green Again
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I'm thinking of upgrading Lowton to Stones (-4)

    9. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Best option out of these on wildcard?

      A) Digne, Burn & Struijk
      B) Pereira, White & Struijk
      C) Reguilon, White & Burn

      4th & 5th defenders are there to fill up GW29 numbers.

      Will sell Digne or Pereira for Cresswell in GW29 if I get them but Reguilon would stay till atleast GW31 if I go for him.

      1. Steiger
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        A 100%

      2. Boly Would
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        A for Digne, but would worry about Struijks place by 29

    10. highsguy
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Choose one...
        A) Digne, Son, Raphinha, DCL(TC)
        B) Lowton, Pereira, DCL, Kane(TC) -4
        C) Digne, Lookman, DCL, Kane(TC) -8

      • Indalo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        A) Triple Captain Kane
        B) Bench Boost (doing Coufal to Konsa or another DGW player under 4.8)

        Martinez
        Cancelo Dias Lowton
        Fernandes Salah Foden Son
        Kane Watkins Bamford*

        Areola Raphina* Dallas* Coufal*

        *Single gameweek player

      • The Red Devil
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Dallas to Dias
        or
        Lowton to Stones?

        only have two city, so wanna get dias/stones as this city double might be a low scoring one
        also, got FH intact

            was leaning towards B with dallas probably OOP?

        2. Steiger
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          B

        3. Better off with a pin and a…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          I prefer B. A does give you an extra game this week, but I think Dallas is better after that.

      • Going Home
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Anything worth an extra hit? On BB and already in -4

        Areola* McCarthy
        Stones* Cancelo* Mitchell* Konsa* Dallas
        Son* Bruno* Salah* Gundo* Raphina

          Sorry. Obviously Bamford only plays once. Doh

          I'd be very happy with that for -4.

            Cheers. Actually got very lucky with the way the doubles were arranged and means I can get 10 out in 29 without a hit. Hopefully halt a run of 9 red arrows in the last 12 and a drop to 82k

        Any 4.7m midfielders for the double?

        Can't squeeze up to Lookman or Pereira sadly.

        Jorginho? Anguissa? Reed?

        Slim to none.

          I got reed on my wc next week.

        play one:

        A konsa (shu, lee)
        B bamford (AVL)

        • 4 Years

        Mee to Pereira worth a -4?

        Would give me this:
        BB active

        Martinez - Areola
        Cancelo - Digne - Pereira - AWB - Targett
        Salah - Fernandes - Barnes - Gundogan - Lookman
        Kane - DCL - Watkins

      • Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Sterling or Gundogan (c) too risky?

      • cuppatea78
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Is McCarthy to Areola worth -4?

        1. Keeptrying
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          I'd say yes!

          Do you have a keeper for BGW29 or FH already? Even stronger case if not.

        2. Going Home
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Tough to say. McCarthy has a double next week (plenty of chances to make saves v city). Depends on your bigger picture planning

        Which to do?
        1)BenchBoost of Pope Bamford Raphina Dallas or
        2) TC on Kane?
        Tenpted with Bench boost as dont know if I will get better chancebof BB later...

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          1 month, 19 days ago

          BB - don't love Spurs' form right now

        2. Keeptrying
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          I'd go for BB, looks strong enough

          To put it into perspective:

          I will BB either
          A) Areola, Mitchell, Dallas and Raphinha
          or B) Forster, Keane, Dallas and Raphinha

        3. Boris Bodega
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          1 ( I have same except Struijk for Raph, and I'm going for the BB)

          GL whichever you go for.

        4. Little Red Lacazette
          • 4 Years

          BB

          1 month, 19 days ago

          Think this is a great week to BB due mainly to pep roulette.

          Assuming you have the standard three city players, you know that they will all most likely start at least one game. If you BB at another stage, there’s a chance that you pick one of their day off and you’re only boosting with 14

            1 month, 19 days ago

            So true

          You all guys are awesome!! Thanks for so much help..Pleaee ask away any queries you may have as I am decent with top 500 HOF atm

      • Keeptrying
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Would you rather bench boost:

        A) Areola & Mitchell
        B) Forster & Keane

        Happy to hear your thoughts 🙂

        Help....

        Is Mendy, Ings and Lowton -> Martinez, Kane (TC) and Mitchell worth the -8

        Mendy - (4.0)
        Cancelo Dias Lowton (Dallas Coufal)
        Salah Son Gundo Bruno (Raphinha)
        Bamford Ings Watkins

        Cheers

          Who is best def 4.4??

          Taylor? Brighton def ?

          Luke Thomas nailed ?

          So the Spurs XG is down partly due to the tough games they have played recently.

          Would you double up on Kane and Son on FH for this week?

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            If on a FH I probably would but maybe play the captaincy elsewhere to not put all your eggs in a Mourinho basket

            I think Son/Kane are 'don't sell, don't buy' territory as it's such a big DGW with so many good players playing twice. They could both get big scores but they don't have the form coming into these games.

        • Drogo
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          A) Raphael OUT Son IN (0.0 in bank)

          B) Ings + Bamford OUT Kane + DCL IN for a -4 hit.

          1. Steiger
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            B

            • 8 Years

            In hindsight, I should have gone with A

          Bottomed

          Rank these punts

          A. Lookman
          B. Diagne
          C. Maja

            You just did 😉

            1. Little Red Lacazette

            You left out Benteke!

            Much better goal per minute ratio than all off these I suspect

            1. pingissimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              Also plays for a more prolific team

            2. pingissimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              Yep just checked Benteke compares very nicely with Lookman if he gets 90 minutes

          Who would you sacrifice in order to get Kane (TC)

          Son or Sterling

          (rival doesn't have Son but has Sterling and is chasing me 72pts, so guseesing he wont get Son or waste a transfer getting rid of Sterling on a DGW?)

          Any help much appreciated
