The Scout Squad’s best FPL players for Double Gameweek 32

The Scout Squad panel are back to champion the stand-out picks for Gameweek 32, which happens to be a ‘double’ for Tottenham Hotspur – so there is no surprise that three of our four writers have opted for a triple-up on the Lilywhites, despite their patchy form.

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 18:30 GMT on Friday.

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

After a Gameweek 31 clean sheet against Sheffield United, I think we can trust Arsenal for more defensive returns this time out, which is why I have included Bernd Leno and Rob Holding in my latest selection.

Over their last six home matches, the Gunners rank joint-sixth for the fewest goals conceded while Fulham have blanked in four of their past seven Premier League outings.

Despite going back-to-back games without a shut-out, I still believe there are clean sheets to be had from Chelsea as they remain best in the division for expected goals conceded over the last six matches. As ever, Edouard Mendy and César Azpilicueta are the most nailed-on options to capitalise on that.

Trent Alexander-Arnold has rediscovered his Fantasy form with 44 points across his last six matches and back-to-back double-digit hauls in Gameweeks 30 and 31. I think he can sustain that against Leeds considering that, over those six matches, no FPL defender has matched Liverpool’s right-back for key passes or big chances created.

Ahead of facing Burnley, Luke Shaw remains in the top five defenders for key passes over the same period.

Meanwhile, Conor Coady is the most nailed-on Wolves defender as they prepare to host a Sheffield United outfit that has scored seven away goals in 15 attempts this season.

Son Heung-min remains top of the Premier League for big chances created over the last six matches, so his two matches against a porous Southampton backline and unreliable Everton defence make him a solid option.

Jesse Lingard should continue his impressive form against a Newcastle outfit that has conceded at least two goals in nine of their last 14 Premier League outings. Just two players in the whole division have registered more shots on target than the West Ham midfielder across his last six matches. He also ranks inside the league’s top five for shots in the box and big chances over the same period, strongly hinting that his form is sustainable.

Mohamed Salah now has goals in back-to-back league games and sits top of the division for shots in the box over his last six matches, so I am backing him to get something against Leeds on Monday night.

Harry KaneChris Wood and Kelechi Iheanacho are among my favourite forwards for Double Gameweek 32. They join Lingard inside the Premier League’s best assets for most shots on target over the last six.

NEALE SAID

For those Fantasy bosses who like to have every morsel of information at their disposal before making transfer plans, Gameweek 32 is a bit of a nightmare.

With the matches so spread out over the coming week, a maximum of just 12 Premier League managers will hold their official pre-match press conferences before Friday’s Fantasy Premier League deadline.

Chelsea, Manchester City, Southampton and Leicester City are also in FA Cup semi-final action before their midweek Gameweek 32 fixtures, so for the champions-elect and the Blues in particular, second-guessing line-ups is a fool’s errand at this early stage.

I’ve therefore gone without players from Chelsea and City, not because I don’t think their respective fixtures offer the potential for points but because I simply have little clue who will take to the field in a week’s time.

It’s a similar-ish situation with Arsenal at the time of writing but they at least are in Europa League action on Thursday evening, giving us 24 hours to tweak our Gunners selections.

Calum Chambers and Gabriel Martinelli are my two differential punts from Mikel Arteta’s squad for now and I’m hoping that both are rested in the Czech Republic: the surprisingly attack-minded Chambers has created five chances in his last four outings from full-back (the same as Luke Shaw), while Martinelli has impressed at home and abroad in recent weeks and racked up four shots in a positive Gameweek 31 display.

Two-thirds of the Tottenham Hotspur triple-up requires little explanation, while Hugo Lloris is selected purely because of the impending EFL Cup final, which falls four days after the second half of Spurs’ Gameweek 32 double-header. Ben Davies may be injured but the proximity of that clash with City and the fact that Japhet Tanganga has prior experience at left-back leads me away from Sergio Reguilon and towards the nailed goalkeeper behind him.

Not that I fully trust the Lilywhites’ defence anyway, with nine big chances conceded in a wide-open last two matches. Richarlison, whose move to a centre-forward role has led to an upturn in his attacking numbers, is also included in my squad as a consequence.

West Ham’s own struggles at the back (seven goals conceded in their last three) have been exacerbated by the loss of Declan Rice, so I’ve plumped for the fit-again Callum Wilson as one of my strikers. The Newcastle front-man has been involved in 64% of the Magpies’ goals this season (no first-choice FPL forward can better that), so if Steve Bruce’s side does find the back of the net, the chances are that Wilson will have played a part.

Slightly hedging my bets, I’ve also included Arthur Masuaku: West Ham’s offensive-minded left wing-back should enjoy his afternoon on Tyneside, as Newcastle have allowed more crosses and chances to be created from their right flank than any other team – both in the last six matches and over the whole of 2020/21.

I’m hoping that Pedro Neto’s unfortunate injury and the return of Willy Boly forces Nuno Espirito Santo to field a back three, as Wolves look much more solid (albeit less attacking) when they’re in a 3-4-3. Much has been made of Conor Coady’s new-found threat but Boly has still racked up more penalty box touches and goal attempts than his fellow centre-half in his last six appearances, so I’ll opt for the pricier Ivory Coast international as a result.

Finally, Edinson Cavani’s impressive goal conversion rate of 25% is bettered by only two FPL forwards this season. With Anthony Martial crocked and Burnley on the longest clean sheet drought in the division, I’ll happily add the clinical Uruguayan to my Manchester United contingent of Bruno Fernandes and Shaw.

TOM SAID…

Hugo Lloris is my first-choice goalkeeper for Gameweek 32. Though Tottenham Hotspur’s defence has looked shaky in recent weeks, they play twice against Everton and Southampton, and the Frenchman is at least assured of two starts.

I’ve also selected Chelsea’s Edouard Mendy, who has kept seven clean sheets in 11 Premier League matches under Thomas Tuchel, and Bernd Leno.

At the back, Luke Shaw is my top pick, followed closely by Conor Coady and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Meanwhile, Calum Chambers is my preferred budget defender this week. Against Sheffield United on Sunday, Arsenal set up in a 4-2-3-1 formation with Granit Xhaka dropping in at left-back. With the Swiss international spending most of the game inside his own half, it allowed his teammate on the opposite flank, Chambers, the opportunity to regularly bomb forward and join the attack. It was a performance reminiscent of his second-half showing at West Ham United, and is encouraging with Fulham up next – only Crystal Palace have conceded more chances from their left flank since the turn of the year.

Ricardo Pereira, who produced his first assist of the season in Gameweek 31, completes the defensive picks.

Further forward, the inclusions of Spurs duo Son Heung-min and Harry Kane, plus Mohamed Salah and Bruno Fernandes, largely speak for themselves, so I’ll dedicate a bit more time to some of my other selections.

After a third goal in four appearances last weekend, Mason Greenwood gets a call-up. Despite only being on the pitch for 18 minutes against Spurs, the youngster made a real impact, and if Paul Pogba is to continue in a more advanced role, where he has the vision and ability to quickly switch play, Greenwood could be the one to benefit. I also like Jesse Lingard, who is the Premier League’s in-form player, providing eight goals and four assists since arriving in east London, plus Kelechi Iheanacho, who seems to be the striker benefitting most from Leicester City’s formation change.

The forward list is completed by Alexandre Lacazette, Dominic Calvert-Lewin (providing he is fit) and Callum Wilson.

ANDY SAID

Even outside of triple Spurs for Double Gameweek 32, picking players this week felt a bit easier than normal and I actually had to leave some top assets out like Bruno Fernandes. I’ve only done this because I fancy Kevin De Bruyne to start now he’s had a Premier League rest.

While we all know Manchester City are likely to win the league, I can’t imagine that they will want to keep dropping points along the way. In the last six Gameweeks. De Bruyne has had eight shots in the box compared to Fernandes’ three, with Aston Villa conceding 9.95 expected goals over that same period (making them the fifth-worst team in the league).

Despite some observations that maybe Leeds will learn to be cautious in games versus teams like Man City and Liverpool, I think it’s too early to think they’re a completely different team – so I’m fully backing the Reds. No player has had more shots than Mohamed Salah (16) in the last six Gameweeks and, even with nearly 200 fewer minutes in that same time, Diogo Jota has managed nine with two big chances. 

It’s impossible to leave Kelechi Iheanacho out at the moment: over the season, he has an expected goal involvement (xGI) every 132.4 minutes. I haven’t lost complete faith in Jamie Vardy just yet, either, as his minutes-per-xGI (124.9) betters his strike partner. While the Foxes are playing two up front, there is of course another player to take some of those shots away. Vardy’s stats are indeed down versus Iheanacho over a small sample size, but the above numbers show that he’s fully capable and has a great fixture.

      Saka has had 1 return since GW20. Holding could at least get a CS, but you know how FPL works.

      1. yanky
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        haha yeah currently have saka on bench. only other one i thought about besides saka was rudiger actually since he got 90 in champions league and im starting mendy too

  2. OneDennisBergkamp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    when Villa & Southampton have a DGW will it be in the same GW?

  3. Stupendous
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    100% of people will own and likely captain Kane this week

    What actually is the point of TC?

    I would rather save for a more opportune time personally

    1. Stupendous
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      And just regular cap him

    2. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years

      Agree

    3. Salan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      Is this relevant?

    4. Echoes
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Thinking along the same lines. But then again. When do we have a better chance left for a TC this season?

        1. Thomas Magnum
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Yes imo. Can do it on Salah in basically any of his remaining games. Kane against SHU/LEE, Lingard has a few good fixtures if you think he keeps it up, Bruno against LEE. There's definetly options but of course not in a double but any choice after this week could be a great differential...

          1. Thomas Magnum
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            Someone from the later double's as well even

          2. Echoes
              2 months, 6 days ago

              Yeah, but if Kane bangs and you don't use the chip on him this week, won't it be an opportunity lost looking back in hindsight? Though it has got me thinking how much will TCers be impacted if he has a close to 200% EO this week. That's my only concern right now tbh.

        2. Lucky Z
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          You receive same points for TC irrelevant of EO

      • Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos

        Lingard situation interesting - Highest SoT p90 in the league with 1.8, shown as he has the highest SoT% P90 in the league of 64% (per fbref). This has contributed to his xG over performance, as he has had an extraordinary skills of making all his shots count (the best in the league in fact) and therefore forcing variance swings which have gone in his favour of late.

        For reference he averages a 40% SoT% p90, so he will regress, but will it be anytime soon?

          • 10 Years

          That's the burning question, seen quite a few hung up on his supposedly poor stats but he's passing the eye test and scoring for fun so for me personally that trumps the stats.

          1. waldo666
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            Should be a relatively low risk move if you think Moura starts both, depends a bit on who you would play for the injured Neto as it stands rn.

              I'd seriously consider just playing Dallas and doing something with Neto for free next week, probably get Raphinha in.

          Any of these transfers worth a hit?

          A. Stones > coady

            Na, not for a hit I don't reckon, what's your cover if neither play?

            I have both fwiw with Bam and Dallas to come on if no shows, which I'm pretty comfortable with.

                I'd have Coufal first on bench myself, not sure tbh mate, I would probably avoid the hit but that's my style, don't think there's a wrong answer.

                If you do go through with one I would go Gundo out as you have stronger defensive options on the bench for mine.

                  Thanks bud. Not sure what to do tbh. Have been leading all my MLs for a while now but the gap is closing. OR 8k. Should I be dull and save the hit or go for it with Jota?

                I wouldn't BB with Forster and Vydra.

                  Ah, you said you would transfer Forster! I reckon just do the Sterling move for free and keep BB up your sleeve.

                    Thanks for coming back to the comment. 🙂
                    If I'm saving BB, should I transfer Sterling out now?
                    He didn't start in the CL game, and is against Aston Villa. Can potentially save and have 2 transfers for next week.

            Thoughts on current team and transfer plans? i am thinking of going KDB to lingard and then following week going Raph and Dias out for Salah and Konsa.

            Mendy

            Shaw Dias Rudiger

            Son Bruno *KDB* Jota

            Bamford Kane (TC) Ihenacho

            Bench: Fabri Raph N.Phillips Dallas

            1. waldo666
              • 10 Years

              I think many will be looking to bring Raph in around that time, tasty fixtures after United.

                  2 months, 6 days ago

                  Hmm but after next week i would have a midfield of Jota Salah Lingard Son and Bruno. Lingard hasnt got that bad fixtures to come also.

                  1. waldo666
                    • 10 Years
                    2 months, 6 days ago

                    Looks great, could always ditch Jota or Salah later if you wanted Raph and were happy to ditch the double up.

                Also needing to dump KDB. Just no confidence they will risk him with the league locked up and CL on the horizon. City assets in general gonna have to get rid. except maybe on defence. unless your team is deep and you can roll with the benchings.

                      I would be more bothered about not owning Lingard than Salah at the moment.

                  Justin's FPL rank is too good for him to worry about a price drop.

                I'm up to my highest rank ever 3.8k after a very lucky gw31.
                I have my wildcard and Triple C chips left to play after transferring in Ihenacho for Watkins earlier this week.
                My Team is
                Johnstone Meslier
                Alonso Rudiger Dallas Dawson Veltman
                Salah Jota Son DeBruyne Lingard
                Kane Bamford Nacho
                So no more ft's with .7m itb ? is do I play my wildcard or triple c chip this week
                I fear losing the benefit of the wildcard if I hold too long but as we don't know who will blank FA cup semis yet, there maybe a more value in triple c chip in later dbls when not everyone is tripling Kane?

                  Kane is a pretty good tc this week and lots will be doing it

                  1. Natho79
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 2 Years
                    2 months, 6 days ago

                    He is but is there not more value in another player if you just captain him this week.
                    Possible Leicester, Chelsea or City blanks leading to dbl game weeks?

                      2 months, 6 days ago

                      Don’t overthink about the unknown. TC Kane or TC Son this week.
                      I predict Kane to score more points but others see the extra point per goal and one point for clean sheets as potential incentive to go for Son.
                      Double Digit hauls this season?
                      Son 9, Kane 7.

                  2 months, 6 days ago

                  If you assume that you would always captain the player that you plan to triple captain in any given week (why wouldn't you) then how many other people are captaining him really doesn't matter. Your TC score will always be 1x the chosen TC's GW points. So since kane in a double looks to have the best prospect of getting the most points in a single GW for the rest of the season, based on what we know now it seems like he's probably the best choice. Like forward thinker said, no need to overthink.

                  Probably Soucek, or Periera. Slim pickings though

                    • 4 Years

                2 months, 6 days ago

                I know it's a long post but wildcard team could be
                Johnstone, Meslier
                TAA, Samedo/Saiss/Digne, Dallas, Chambers, Veltman
                Salah, Jota, Lingard, Fernandes, Pereria
                Kane, Cavani, Nacho

                  This is the final game week for acquiring 10 yellows.
                  Looks like it's just Maguire with 9 yellows.

                  I reckon I would start A&B with C&D first on the bench.

                    Reckon Gundo starts after 90 mins last night? Fear of the 1 pointer...

                      I reckon starts or fully rested, in saying that they were my thoughts last week as well!

                        I'm likely starting him, will just have to cop it sweet if there's a 1 point cameo.

                  I’m very seriously considering TC Son. Could be an amazing differential if Kane doesn’t do so well. All the negative press about him wanting to leave etc.
                  I have a feeling.

                    • 5 Years
                    2 months, 6 days ago

                    Agreed. Has much higher potential. But with Maddison you get regular minutes.

                      Look at the precise fixtures and Maddison has much better immediate fixtures and there's a possible swap to Jota in 35 if you like. The teams to target right now are Palace SHU Burnley and Southampton. Newcastle are good but not quite in same territory. On this pattern only WBA is suboptimal

                      Madison

                      32 WBA
                      33 Palace
                      34 Southampton

                      Jota

                      35 Southamptom
                      36 WBA
                      37 Burnley
                      38 Palace

                  Not nailed and Klopp clearly doesn't know his best attack. In the last 4

                  Jota benched
                  Firmino benched
                  Mane benched
                  Jota benched

                Anybody here getting the "Jota jitters"
                Not very impressive in his last 2 games.
                Substitute to be fair.

                  Gametime could be an issue every other week but I still feel he is more likely to score than Salah nowadays...

                  On a WC and i am rethinking it. Maddison/Mount/ are potential replacements.

                  Yesterday was an important game for them and Jota not starting gave me the jitters.

                  I'll probably take him this week as a punt before WC, whether I keep him after I'm not so sure.

                    For some reason, he looks quite ineffective when he starts most times. And is pretty good against tired defenders when he comes on as a sub. Wouldn't worry if he's benched and comes on later. Could actually be better infact.

                  Trent's heatmap vs Madrid is interesting.
