The Scout Squad’s best FPL players for Gameweek 30

The Scout Squad panel reassemble after a fortnight’s breather to pick out the most appealing players for Gameweek 30.

The final international break of 2020/21 came to a close on Wednesday evening but the assortment of World Cup qualifiers and friendlies will still have a significant say on the selections, with injury and fatigue factors to consider.

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

Aston Villa and Chelsea are my favourite defences for Gameweek 30 as they prepare to host West Bromwich Albion and Fulham respectively.

Sam Allardyce’s men have scored in just two of their last seven league matches while Chelsea have conceded the fewest goals of any top-flight team in their last six.

Considering the goals have not flowed with the same regularity as clean sheets, I’m tripling-up at the back with Edouard MendyCesar Azpilicueta and Antonio Rüdiger, Chelsea’s three most-nailed-on defensive assets.

As for Aston Villa, they face a Fulham outfit who have failed to find the net in three of their last five outings, which bodes well for Emiliano Martínez and Matt Targett.

Lucas Digne is top among all Everton defenders for expected goal involvement (xGI) over the last six matches, suggesting he is the best to consider from the Toffees backline in Gameweek 30. 

Crystal Palace are his upcoming opponents, who are bottom of the whole Premier League for expected goals (xG) over the last six matches.

I am expected a lot of goals when Leeds host Sheffield United in a Saturday afternoon Yorkshire derby.

The Blades are still managerless since the departure of Chris Wilder and, over the last six matches, are bottom of the league for expected goals conceded (xGC) by quite a considerable margin.

Raphinha and Patrick Bamford are about as must-have as it gets for Gameweek 30, each one arguably in the captaincy conversation, too.


Jesse Lingard remains joint-top of the league over the last six matches for shots on target so I am backing the West Ham midfielder to continue his recent form against Wolves.

Newcastle look in serious danger of the drop right now, especially considering they sit in the division’s bottom five for xGC over the last six matches. They have also given up at least two goals in eight of their last 12.
That bodes well for Harry Kane and Gareth Bale, who should have the creative force of Son Heung-min back in the team for Gameweek 30.

Meanwhile, Crystal Palace are joint-worst in the Premier League over the last six matches for headed attempts conceded, so Dominic Calvert-Lewin should enjoy his Monday-evening meeting with the Eagles.

NEALE SAID

A two-week breather is no guarantee of a start this weekend, nor does considerable playing time during the international break necessarily mean that a benching is on the cards.

That is especially true of Manchester City assets, with Pep Guardiola having previously talked of the importance of “rhythm”.

Riyad Mahrez hopefully falls somewhere in the middle, with a decent rest preceding his one and only run-out for Algeria on Monday.

Mahrez has started eight of City’s last ten league matches and while next Tuesday’s Champions League quarter-final against Borussia Dortmund further muddies the waters, I’m hoping that his recent form and track record against his old employers (four attacking returns in as many games) counts for something.

He has four goals and as many assists over his last six matches and is joint-top among FPL midfielders for shots in the box during that time.

Thomas Tuchel is proving to be just as hard to second-guess as Guardiola and again, it’d be naive to think that we can 100% count on the likes of Marcos Alonso just because of his fortnight off.

But with positional rival Ben Chilwell returning late after three hours of playing time with England (bear in mind that Chelsea are in action in the Saturday lunchtime kick-off) and that Alonso’s physicality might be a better match for Sam Allardyce’s Baggies, I’m taking a punt on the Spaniard.

Alonso has had more penalty box touches and shots in the opposition area than any other FPL defender in their last six matches, so he’s due one of his bi-annual hauls.

There will be no prizes awarded for originality by going big on Leeds United, Everton, Spurs and Chelsea this week, so I won’t waste much time in trying to justify why, for example, Raphinha is a shrewd acquisition ahead of the visit of managerless, bottom-of-the-table Sheffield United.

As for the less obvious picks, Craig Dawson gets the nod as my budget defender. As I discussed in my recent article, Wolves are both toothless in attack and prone to conceding from crosses and set plays – so that could be a match made in heaven for the West Ham centre-half.

Up top, I’ve plumped for Che Adams as my fifth forward.

On the scoresheet for Scotland in midweek and with three goals in as many Premier League matches to his name, Adams will be facing a Burnley side who have uncharacteristically kept just four clean sheets in their last 17 matches – only three teams have worse records from Gameweek 14 onwards.

TOM SAID…

I’ve doubled up on Chelsea’s defence ahead of their Gameweek 30 meeting with West Bromwich Albion.

In Thomas Tuchel’s ten league matches, the Blues have conceded on just two occasions – one of them being an own-goal from Antonio Rüdiger. Added to that, they have kept eight clean sheets with another four in their cup matches.

Edouard Mendy and César Azpilicueta are probably the safest routes in, but as a one-week punt, I like Marcos Alonso, who I fancy to start given Ben Chilwell’s involvement for England over the international break.

I’ve also called up Lucas Digne and Luke Shaw.

Everton’s opponents, Crystal Palace, have conceded 91 headed attempts this season, which is at least 12 more than any other side. That suggests Digne’s delivery from wide areas could be key, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin the likely beneficiary. Shaw has the potential to deliver points at both ends of the pitch too, having developed into one of Manchester United’s most important attacking outlets.

They’re joined at the back by goalkeepers Hugo Lloris and Fraser Forster, plus Stuart Dallas and Kyle Walker-Peters.

In midfield, Bruno Fernandes and Kevin De Bruyne are obvious inclusions, but it’s Son Heung-min I like most this week.

This season, Newcastle United have conceded a lot of chances from their right, so it was no surprise that two of Brighton and Hove Albion’s goals came from that side last time out. The data suggests it’s a weak spot, which is something Son can capitalise on, providing he is fit. It’s also worth noting that Steve Bruce’s side have managed just a single clean sheet in 14 attempts at St James’ Park this season, which backs up my decision to double up and include Harry Kane as my top forward pick.

Elsewhere, Kai Havertz also has the potential to do well if he avoids Tuchel’s rotation. The 21-year-old has had more success since being deployed closer to goal, where he has the freedom to roam and drop into pockets of space between the lines. And if he can get a bit more support in and around him, I’m backing him to return on Saturday.

The offensive list is completed by Leeds United duo Raphinha and Patrick Bamford, along with Danny Ings and Ollie Watkins.

ANDY SAID


Over the last six matches, no team has a better expected goals conceded (xGC) total than Chelsea’s 2.56. They were already a good defensive side under Frank Lampard and now they are at an elite level in the Thomas Tuchel era. West Brom won’t have an easy time scoring. I’d have liked to have opted for a punt on Marcos Alonso with my picks, but I’ve played it safe with those that I think are pretty much guaranteed to start.

Over that same timeframe, Sheffield United have conceded 14.01 expected goals. To show how poor that is, Crystal Palace are in second place with 9.74. Tripling up on Leeds United seems like a no-brainer. Only four players – not one of them a midfielder – can better Raphinha’s 3.86 xGI over their last six matches.

If Gareth Bale hadn’t missed out in Gameweek 29 then he’d easily be in my squad but I’m worried about his starting place now. Lucas Moura, by contrast, has started five of the last six and may have done enough to warrant a consistent starting spot. Over those last half-dozen matches, he’s had 10 shots in the box and created 11 chances. He might not be as explosive as Bale, but he feels like a safer starter at this point.

    BB worthy? Would be for a -4.

    Bruno Son Lingard Raphinha Gundogan

    Sanchez Richarlison Cresswell Dallas

      If you still have the WC left then no

      1. Traction Engine Foot
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        No wildcard

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          6 months, 21 days ago

          then take the hit

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Defo

    3. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Definitely

  2. Thomas Magnum
    • 6 Years
    6 months, 21 days ago

    Would you lot bench boost if you had Dias and Stones in your sides? If not would you move either for a -4 to bring in say Shaw. Will most likely sell one of the two, if not both next week on WC, but just not sure which of the two yet.

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      I would probably take the -4.

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        Thanks for the response mate! Who would you be more comfortable selling of the two?

        1. Traction Engine Foot
          • 3 Years
          6 months, 21 days ago

          It's a tough one. I'd probably say Stones just because he's less nailed.

          1. Thomas Magnum
            • 6 Years
            6 months, 21 days ago

            Agreed its tough. Stones I dont mind selling as we know he's less nailed but it'll hurt more if Dias becomes as nailed as Stones and I'm looking at an expensive defender on the bench every other week. I am leaning more towards keeping Dias though just like you said based on past naildness

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Save yourself the -4 by WC31 and looking through the remaining fixtures to see which cheap players to bring in to use BB.

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        I considered this, but I just worry that it may limit my options on WC, say if I need to say spend 4.5 on the cheapest nailed keeper when I can have a 3.9 on my wildcard and spend the extra funds elsewhere etc etc

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          6 months, 21 days ago

          Then take the -4 and use the BB.

          1. Thomas Magnum
            • 6 Years
            6 months, 21 days ago

            Thanks mate

    3. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      -4 for Shaw doesn’t make much sense, Brighton not a good fixture for a one week punt. Why not go with a Chelsea defender?

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        Will use my 2ft's doing McCarthy & White > Mendy & Azpi so not sure a triple up is the way to go. Already have Dallas so rules him out and seems like United have the next best fixture

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 2 Years
          6 months, 21 days ago

          Oh right. As a United fan I’d rather Digne this week over Shaw just for CS potential. Feel Utd v Bri could be a goalfest again

          1. Thomas Magnum
            • 6 Years
            6 months, 21 days ago

            Thanks, appreciate the response! Hadn't really thought of Digne before you mentioned him, but maybe him being on the cover photo of this article is a sign

            1. Thomas Magnum
              • 6 Years
              6 months, 21 days ago

              Ooops .2 off Digne unfortunately... Back to the drawing board

  3. Tonyawesome69
    • 2 Years
    6 months, 21 days ago

    Thinking about Cancelo to Alonso before WC31 leaving me with the team below. Thoughts on that?

    WC31 FH33
    1FT 5.5itb
    Martinez
    Dallas Digne Alonso
    Raphinha Son Lingard Bale
    Kane Bamford DCL
    (Fabri Gundo Stones Cresswell)

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Out of favour Bale and injured Son not a worry or greater priority than Cancelo out?

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        I expect Son to be fit for Newcastle and I'll risk Bale and hope he gets mins and attacking points. Bench is good enough to cover Bale not starting

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      I find it tough to believe Bale starts

      Think there's more likely upside in KdB for a week than Alonso. Cresswell I'd be very happy to start against Wolves - see Neale's comments in the article about choosing Dawson.

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        I'm going to wait and see. He is a easy switch with Cresswell. City LEI game is hard to call. Chelsea WBA is surely a guaranteed CS then Alonso has the upside of an attacking return

  4. Pukki Blinders
    • 2 Years
    6 months, 21 days ago

    % chance of starting for the following?

    Cancelo
    Dias
    Azpi

    1. Pukkipartyy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      50
      80
      95

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        This looks about right

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      75, 100, 100

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 2 Years

        100 for a City player, pretty brave

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          6 months, 21 days ago

          It's Dias! Pretty straightforward there

  5. Pigeon
    • 5 Years
    6 months, 21 days ago

    What to do with 0.6m and 1FT? Want to get Azpi. Have no chips left.

    Martinez
    Dallas Stones Cresswell
    Gundogan Salah Son Raphinha Bruno
    Watkins Kane
    Forster Antonio Konsa Veltman

  6. Pukkipartyy

    Punt on Alonso or Havertz?

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Alonso

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years

      Alonso

  7. Demba Demba

    Hey guys, just trying to plan my transfers and captain choice for this week. I'm in the top 150, and I'm torn between playing it safe and captaining Kane or going for a differential and trying to climb higher, would what you do?! Could do very wrong and see my rank tumble but then again I might never be so high again right?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Not sure why you are asking us when you are in the top150! Just continue what you've been doing

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        This

      2. Demba Demba
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        Because we all know theres a huge element of luck to the game!

    2. sandman58
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      I think Kane has tougher fixture than people reckon
      And if he score u still get 50% of any points those who captained him got
      I fancy Bruno myself to score well this gameweek

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        Not if his EO hits 200% you don’t

    3. sandman58
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Who would be ur differential pics??

      1. Demba Demba
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        Nobody crazy, Fernandes or Bamford

    4. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Captain who you think scores most points. You go to 150 for a reason mate

    5. Deulofail
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      The way to climb ranks is to get more points than others, but to do that, you must forget The Other. Trying to be different for difference's sake is handing the advantage to the opponent.

  8. sandman58
    • 2 Years
    6 months, 21 days ago

    Start 1
    A) Lingard
    B) Gundogan

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Lingard

      1. sandman58
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        Can I ask why u reckon Lingard?

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          6 months, 21 days ago

          I think he will start and get an attacking return. Gundogan played 270 mins in 6 days over the IB. I can't see him starting this weekend before the UCL midweek

  9. Hryszko
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 21 days ago

    Already done Auba > Bruno for this week with my FT, would you make any other changes here for a -4 or am I G2G? Got 7.4m in the bank, planning on using my WC in the next week or two.

    Martinez
    Coufal - Stones - Shaw
    Son - Trossard - Raphina - Bruno
    DCL - Bamford - Kane (c)

    Bench: Areola - Soucek - Dier - Dunk

    1. Hryszko
      • 4 Years

      Could even do Trossard > KDB for -4?

    Been out of the loop during the break.

    What is looking like the best week to play Wildcard?

        Cheers mate.

        What players is it dependent on?

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          6 months, 21 days ago

          Teams like Chelsea, Liverpool, Wolves and Leicester for their fixture turn in 31. Spurs for their double in 32 and blank in 33. City with their blank in 33 and still competing in 4 competitions (rotation)

    3. Deulofail
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      33 for everyone, regardless of context

  11. Pukkipartyy

        You think Alonso has a 100% chance of starting?

        ................

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          6 months, 21 days ago

          Yup. Alonso rested over the IB compared to Chilwell and WBA are the ideal opponents for Alonso if you follow the narrative that Chilwell starts against opponents that can exploit the full back areas

      Could be better.
      Could be looking a one clean sheet and possibly tross returns

      Sounds like a good enough plan then you can remove the bench money on the wildcard

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        Might keep the bench money actually, want to be flexible heading into the blank in 33, still unsure though

    With bale likely out of favour and son likely injured is Salah to Moura for free a decent choice or rotarisk
    Rival has Son

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Unnecessary risk

    2. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 21 days ago

      I'm probably going with Moura for the DGW if he keeps getting starts but wouldn't do that now especially if you've held Salah this long with his fixtures due to turn

    BB this? Would be for a hit. Concerned about stones and gundos game time.

    Martinez
    Azpilicueta shaw Dias
    Gundogan Son Raphinha Fernandes
    Kane Antonio Calvert-Lewin

    Bale Dunk veltman

    Anything for a -4 tempted to Azpilicueta (C)?

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Low ceiling for Azpi, doesn’t exactly excite

    2. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Think Kane, Bruno and Raphinha are far more appealing options for captaincy this week

    My team: have 1 FT

    Martinez, Button
    Cancelo, Coufal, Targett, Digne, Tierney
    Maddison, Zaha, Neto, Mahrez, Salah
    Kane, Bamford, Ings

    My Plan is:
    Coufal out --> Rüdiger in

    Thoughts??

    1. The Strokes
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Yes

  17. jimmyharte

    Son Captain?

  18. Limbo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    6 months, 21 days ago

    Any Son news yet?

    Him to Mount for a couple of weeks looks like a good shout.

    1. The Strokes
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      With DGW for Spurs to come, wouldn't do that

      1. Limbo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        For two weeks, if Son's out for a bit longer. Only have £.2m invested and got easy access via Lingard.

  19. The Strokes
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 21 days ago

    Which 2 to bench ?
    A. Targett (Ful)
    B. TAA ( Ars)
    C. Stones (Lei)
    D. Gundo ( Lei)
    E. Salah (Ars)
    F. Jota (Ars)

    1. Keep son
    2. Son to Bruno

      Why do you want to sell Son.
      I'm actually asking myself how to bring him in

      1. Lindelol
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        need bruno

    Who is more likely to start Cancelo or Rudiger this week?

    Both started all 3 matches for their country.

    1. The Strokes
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Rud

    Fans attending FAC semi. Looking like DGW35 is closer becoming a reality! Keep a hold of those WC/FH chips as long as you

      Just can't decide this week on what to do!
      Pope (Forster)
      Stones, Dallas, Cresswell (Holding, Mitchell)
      Bruno (C), Gundo, Mount, Lingard (Salah)
      Kane (VC), DCL, Bamford

      Have been going back and forth between:
      A) Holding > Rudiger / Christiansen for FT
      B) Salah > Mahrez + Mitchell > Azpi
      C) Salah > Son (if likely to start) + Mitchell > Azpi
      D) Salah > Rashford (if likely to start) + Mitchell > Azpi

      Any suggestions?

      1. artvandelay316
          6 months, 21 days ago

          Or E) Salah>Jota + Mitchell > Azpi

        Best Chelsea defender to bring in ?

        1. artvandelay316
            6 months, 21 days ago

            Depends on budget.
            Azpi best but not budget friendly IMO. Rudiger/Christensen both budget friendly, but doubts over if Rudiger plays this week. I'm also considering the same sitution.

          We have put together our weekly Differential XI for this week. Anyone you would have included that we didn’t?

            • 5 Years
            6 months, 21 days ago

            I'd consider:

            Mendy/Pickford over Meslier

            Maguire/Keane over Vestergaard

            Hamez over Traore

            Richarlison & Che over Mitrovic & Vinicius
