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.

      5 and a toss up between 1 and 2. I can see us losing but nicking a goal against City.

    when will be known if there is going to be an upcoming DGW? (and might it be in GW 35?) thanks

      Slim chances for that

      Taken a big gamble this week and brought in both Vardy and Nacho for a -8. Back up plan is to shift Vardy if he remains cold for the next couple GWs as well. As of now, have Laca in mind. But we'll see who's in form when GW34 comes I guess.

        I love having Vardy as my WC differential. But I would love it even more if he started bursting the onion bag again.

        Looks good if you're ok with not owning Lingard. I am with you on that (so far sinking) boat

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          I think that ship has sailed, and with Liverpool out of Europe I've got to hold fast with Jota (the obvious one to make way) through that juicy fixture run. But I do have an uncomfortable feeling it's going to be my undoing.

          Thanks for the replies guys.

              Love the site by the way, spent literally days of my time on the transfer planner when I was on my WC.

      If you must pick one from Wolfs, who would that be from :

      1. Fabio Silva

      Or

      William Jose

      ?

      1. Phil's Stamps
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Neither, has to be Teen Wolf or the one out of The Seven Little Kids (that dude was smooth).

        1. Jebiga
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Can you explain more ? 🙂
          Realy think that Fabio Silva will be around 80 million euros worth in couple of seasons

          1. Phil's Stamps
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years

            But can he blow a house down with one puff? You can't teach that kind of ability.

      2. The Knights Template

        I think you should get a wolf like me.

      3. Pukki Blinders

      Bench headache - bench 2 of those:

      1) TAA (Leeds sway)
      2) Dias (Villa away)
      3) Shaw (Burnley home)
      4) Rudiger (Brighton home)
      5) Holding (Fulham home)

      1. Ragabolly
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      2. Phil's Stamps
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Pick one
      A Vardy Philips
      B Nacho Trent

      1. Phil's Stamps
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        A if chasing, B is template.

      2. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Something to be said for a Nacho Vardy double up in 33/34 but going Vardy over Nacho and Phillips over TAA this week feels a bit perverse.

        1. Weeb Kakashi
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Agreed mate.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            I'm likely left choosing between Vardy from Kane or Maddison from Son next week. Just waiting on events really.

            Maddison may not be quite the asset he was without Barnes there - that was a killer combination. Theoretically he should be good with Nacho too but he came back from injury pretty slowly at the beginning of the season. Happy to wait right now.

      3. Blue&White85
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      4. bitm2007
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        B, From a stats perspective it's a no contest. Vardy has one goal in his last 17 PL starts, Nancho has 7 in his last 5. Phillips hasn't had an attacking return all season, Trent is back in the attacking points with two double-digit halls in a row.

        1. Weeb Kakashi

            Take a hit and have both. You will be keeping until the end of the season I would think so it will be worth it

      People with TC planning to use it this week?

      1. The Knights Template
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        No, will just captain Kane this week and use it on a differential I like down the track.

        1. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Same thinking, more doubles to come right?

          1. The Knights Template
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            I'm thinking it's probably.

            1. The Knights Template
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 10 days ago

              Probably probable.

            2. Thomas Magnum
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 10 days ago

              Agree with you all, just feel I won’t get as much out of it with everyone in my ML captaining Kane, will wait for a differential down the line

      2. Cheeseoid
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Yup. There won't be a better time

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Contemplating Son - recent returns match or better Kane for the most part when they both feature and there's a decent upside if he out returns Kane.

        As I see it these are the likely opportunities down the line to TC someone with a juicy fixture who will also be differential as a captain. In each case it only works if the template captain fails.

        Nacho in 33 or 34 against Palace or Southampton
        Zaha with SHU Southampton in 35 is possible (the other possible probable doubles look poor)
        Jota over Mo against Southampton in 35 for Palace in 38
        Son in 34 against SHU

      Is it worth holding Ings, or sell him this week for say Cavani?
      Would then look to bring back ings after BW33 and or in accordance with his double

      1. The Knights Template

        2 months, 10 days ago

        Nah just keep him. If you sell then buy back you'll just confuse him.

        1. Thomas Magnum
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Could be the case, but could also mean he’ll be back with a vengeance when he returns. It also eases up blank gameweek headaches

      2. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 10 days ago

        No point playing Hokey Cokey with mid priced strikers. Either sell for good or keep

        1. Thomas Magnum
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Is Cavani nailed enough to keep long term though?

          1. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 10 days ago

            Yes Martial is out for the season

        Who are your other strikers TM? I’ve never had big returns from Ings so personally prefer Nacho/Bamford/DCL (if fit and he has a double)...

        1. Thomas Magnum
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Got Kane and Nacho as is along with Ings

    • Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Going Nacho-Vardy is fine i guess. But going only Vardy just for the sake of differentiating is a bit too much i guess. That extra 4+M can improve your team in all the other areas.

      1. The Knights Template
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        I think Leicester are going to run out of steam.

      2. #Swish41
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        I never like double strikers from the same team, but that’s just me spreading the risk!

    • Gabistuta
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Good week for BB?

      Martinez, Areola
      Azpi, Pereira, Reg, Stones, Digne
      Mahrez, Ling, Son, Gund, Mads
      Nacho, Watkins, Kane

      1FT (want to save)

      Other option is TC on Son for the diff

      If TC my bench would be Martinez, Pereira, Watkins, Digne

      Any thoughts?

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Gund Mahrez and Stones is a poor combo if you want to BB. Chances of all starting very slim. Suspect you likely get 1 or 2 at best

      2. FALSE PROFIT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        I often do this:
        A high mark for a good pick differential.
        A low mark for a poor template pick.
        An average mark for basic template.
        My opinion only.

        4 8 5 5 3
        5 5 5 5 7
        8 4 5
        Martinez and Perreira could punish you

      3. #Swish41
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        TC safer given rotation risks, City looked at the end knackered last night. That said, when else would you play it? It’s a great bench if they all play!

    • Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year

      Neto to who?

      5.7m to spend

      1. Oggle22
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Same dilemma with 5.8m but not many decent players in that bracket a may have to take a -4 to bring Jlingz back in a week after losing him in wildcard

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Ouch. I Don’t own Lingard and don’t plan on owning him... think the boat has sailed already

      2. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Pereira

        1. Oggle22
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          I did debate this move but can't stop thinking after two big hauls ill get nothing

      3. #Swish41
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Raphina if fit, or Perreira (although he does seem to rely on pens)

        1. Thomas Magnum
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Forget about him but Raphinha also a shout as swish just said

      4. Thomas Magnum
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Not sure if he still gets in the box as much, and how much Rice injury effects his offensive output. But if you don’t have Lingard how about Soucek?

        1. Oggle22
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Yer not a bad shout especially with Newcastle up next

        2. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Seems to be much more restricted going forward based on the stats, don’t think he’s an option unfortunately

      Morning all. WC took me up to 24k and top of ML, so looking to kick on:

      Mendy
      Coady Shaw Rudiger
      SON Bruno Jota Salah Lingz
      KANE Nacho

      Forster (Tot) Bamford (LIV) Stones (avl) Phillips (lee)

      Bench Boost GTG?

      Not perfect fixtures, but when else will I use it, and rivals have burned theirs.

      Main concern is Stones’ playing time. May switch to:

      A. Fofana (great fix but leaky)
      B. Keane (upcoming double)
      C. Dallas (form but tough immediate fixtures)
      D. Regullion (double but poor form then blank)
      E. Save and risk Stones

      Would welcome thoughts...

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        I’d look at possibly C cause your team is good enough to bench him when fixtures are bad for the next 2, and of course he’s OOP. Don’t trust D or B. You’re right about A’s fixtures but how many CS’s do you honestly see them keeping?

        1. #Swish41
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Thanks Magnum, very helpful and I agree with all of that (esp Leicester CS odds and not trusting Reg). Dallas also covers the chasers in my ML’s, which I like.

          1. Thomas Magnum
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            No problems mate, I think it’s good to have someone to block the chasers in the ML, such as Dallas.
            If we knew more about the doubles it would be much easier to plan and maneuver around, and who knows who’ll be in/out of form by then. But I guess we can only play with what we know right now

        Don't bench Dallas

          That’s my biggest concern. Is there anyone in that team you’d actually drop for him? I think the decision might be made for me by Tuchal tbh

    • Rep Poulette
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Prefer to target double return prospects at the back here.

    • WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Martinez | Areola
      Vetlman | Azpi | Digne | Shaw | Dawson
      Salah | Gundo | Lingard | Bruno | Jota
      Iheanacho | Kane | Maja

      GW32:
      The only way I can (and willing) to get Son is:
      Digne + Gundo -> 3.8m bench fodder + Son. Is it worth a hit?
      Digne was probably gonna be on my bench anyway. Also, Gundo might not play vs Villa.

      GW33:
      Plan would be to downgrade Son to Greenwood/Maddison and upgrade Dawson/3.8m bench fodder.
      Would be for hit as well. But Don't expect Dawson to do well vs Chelsea. So, a hit for maybe TAA is probably worth it. Also, Son to anyone who plays is a gain of 2 points anyway.

    • JVALDEZ
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Play both of Raph/Bam or get in Jota for a hit?

      1. #Swish41
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Wait on Raph injury, but he is involved in most of Leeds’ good stuff. Fixture difficulty doesn’t really impact our scoring ability...

      2. Sho-kun

    • pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      I'd save

      34 is more likely I think for Stones Bam and Phillips combo looking at fixtures and you can move on from one of them anyway by then. There's also the prospect of hypothetical DGW35 where Leicester Chelsea and City are all DGW prospects

      Nice team great rank.

            No, I’ve turned around 100 point deficits in the past but you need to start going against template players your rival has and know when to differentiate with the captaincy.
