Scout Picks

Double Gameweek 32 Scout Picks XI includes Spurs triple-up

As they prepare to face Everton and Southampton over the next few days, Spurs assets form the spine of our Double Gameweek 32 Scout Picks.

We have chosen three of their players for the latest round of games while Liverpool and Manchester United provide a pair of double-ups.

Our Scout Picks, chosen from DavidNealeTom and Andy‘s Scout Squad submissions, line up in 4-4-2 formation this week, coming in at £79.6m, £3.4m inside our budget of £83.0m. 

Goalkeeper

Hugo Lloris (£5.6m) is our chosen representative from the Spurs defence ahead of their two fixtures in the Double Gameweek. José Mourinho’s goalkeeper is the most likely to feature significantly in both matches. Everton drew 0-0 with Brighton last time out and Southampton have failed to score in three of their last five away matches; so a clean sheet is hardly an unexpected outcome for Lloris.

Defenders

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.4m) is right back where Fantasy Premier League managers have come to expect him: one of the best creative defenders in the division. Over his last six matches, he is top among all FPL defenders for key passes and big chances, producing 44 points in that time (7.3 per game).

Luke Shaw (£5.3m) is not far behind Alexander-Arnold over the last six, providing four clean sheets and a goal in that time for a total of 38 points. His 10 key passes keep the left-back in the top-five defenders during the same period.

Conor Coady (£4.9m) and his Wolves colleagues went some way to helping out the fixtures-over-form camp in their 1-0 win over Fulham on Friday night. That suggests he can be trusted again when Sheffield United come to Molineux for their delayed Double Gameweek 32 match. The Blades have scored just seven away goals in 15 attempts this season, the worst in the Premier League.

Rob Holding (£4.2m) remains a helpful value option in defence with Fulham coming to the Emirates Stadium on Sunday. Over the last six matches, the Cottagers are in the Premier League’s bottom five for big chances while no side has a worse goal conversion rate (4.5%).

Midfielders

Injury updates on Son, Saka, and Burn ahead of BGW29 and Aubameyang latest

Bruno Fernandes (£11.6m) might only have two attacking returns since Double Gameweek 26 but a Sunday afternoon meeting with Burnley could change all that. The Clarets are on the longest run of any side in the division without a clean sheet and, over their last six, are in the bottom-three for expected goals conceded (xGC).

Son Heung-min (£9.4m) is the second of our three Spurs players for the Double Gameweek. Everton have just one clean sheet at home since Gameweek 13 while Southampton are the Premier League’s fourth-worst side for xGC over the last matches. Over the same period, Son is top of the division for big chances created.

Following a midweek rest, Diogo Jota (£7.0m) looks more likely than his attacking colleagues to start against Leeds for Liverpool on Monday night. The mid-priced midfielder has three goals across his last three Premier League outings.

Jesse Lingard (£6.5m) is the division’s man-in-form after a fifth double-digit haul of the campaign in just his ninth appearance. Considering only two players in the Premier League can boast more shots on target than Lingard over the last six matches, his output looks sustainable at least for now. In Double Gameweek 32, West Ham face a Newcastle outfit that has conceded at least two goals in nine of their last 14 league matches.

Forwards

How Spurs' FPL assets fared in their final match before Double Gameweek 32 7

As already mentioned, Spurs’ fixtures in Double Gameweek 32 look very appealing from an attacking perspective. Harry Kane (£11.7m) is an obvious inclusion in the Scout Picks then considering he is joint-top of the Premier League for big chances and shots on target over the last six matches.

Kelechi Iheanacho (£6.0m) is one of two players level with Kane for big chances during that period and is just one shot on target behind him too. It is no surprise the Leicester forward has produced seven goals since Double Gameweek 26. West Bromwich Albion have made some defensive improvements recently but still have just one clean sheet away from home this season.

Substitutes

  • Rui Patrício (£5.3m)
  • Arthur Masuaku (£4.3m)
  • Gabriel Martinelli (£4.9m)
  • Callum Wilson (£6.5m)

    Cavani goal

    Hey.

    Play Saka or Holding?

    1. Starskyb
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Holding is more solid but Saka more explosive imo. Depends what kind of manager you are.

    2. popey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Saka for me

  3. MiechuPL
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Vardy + Davis for
    Laca/Cavani + Iheanacho ?

    Do You think that it is a good move for -4?

    1. Gizzachance
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Yes

    2. popey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Yes, probably with Laca for me but its a coin flip depending on team preference

      If went Cavani then Saka looks a great pick for Arsenal at price

  4. No Kane No Gain
    • 2 Years

    DCL to cavani -4?!

  5. ajmross6891

    Doubled up on TAA and Robertson last GW, just looking for differentials in my league [captained TAA last GW too]. This GW, do I start both? Or bench Robertson for Watkins?

    1. ajmross6891
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Also, I've got E. Mendy, Saiss, and Shaw starting. So, feel comfortable I've got at 12+ defensive points already.

  6. Gizzachance

    struggling a bit here this week guys, any help much appreciated
    keeper :Mendy
    play 2 with taa
    A rudiger (bri}
    B shaw Burn)
    C coady (sheff)

    thanks

    1. ajmross6891

      3 months, 11 days ago

      B, C. But you've got to have serious midfield options to not play B, C, D as Holding almost guaranteed 6 points.

      1. Gizzachance
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Salah jota Bruno son lingard

        1. ajmross6891

          Shame you don't have a bench boost chip. Go B, C. But expect to see at least 12 points sitting on your bench!

          1. Gizzachance
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Cheers, I do have b boost left, was debating if to keep for any doubles? Had vydra an coady pts on bench last week ! May be good time this week to use

          2. Gizzachance
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Bench
            Forster vydra rudiger holding

    2. popey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Agree on BC to play, defence always looked tough this week if you WC in 31

  7. popey
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    first sub right?

    a) Diop (new)
    b) Wood (mun)

    Common logic dictates the attacking but think Diop as a chance at both ends v Newcastle. Relevant as have Alonso in starting eleven

  8. SIGGYMETIMBER
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Start Podence or Saka?

  9. Spoonhead
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Any thoughts chaps - Don't have two spurs for this week, nor do I think I could reasonably fit any more in without taking a hit somewhere?

    I was thinking of playing my Bench Boost this week (favourable fixtures apart from Forster). Don't have TC or WC left.

    Mendy (Forster)
    Rudiger, TAA, Stones (Shaw, Holding)
    Lingard, Salah, Bruno, Jota (Gundo)
    Iheanacho, Kane (C), Wood

    1 FT available, 0.1 ITB

    If anything with Bench Boost active perhaps swap Forster for someone else, or maybe Wood for someone else?.

    Let me know what you think!

  10. dr_dre3000
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Jota + Dias -> Son and 4.1 for a -4?

  11. Jellyfish
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Play Pickford or Martinez this gw? Currently on Pickford

  12. Rundmc
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Martinez or Johnston and Nat Phillips or Holgate..
    Any thoughts?

    Martinez
    Dallas Phillips Shaw
    Lingard Bruno son Jota salah
    Kane Ihenacho

  13. Vovhund

    Current team
    Martinez-Johnstone
    Stones-Dallas-Konsa-Veltman-Digne
    Salah-Son-Bruno-Gündogan-Lingard
    Kane+Ihenacho+Watkins

    0.0 ITB, and trying to save WC.

    Need 3 defenders this week, and 5 next week.

    How do you like this plan?:
    GW 32: Martinez+Veltman to Lloris+Holding
    GW 33: Stones to Coady

    1. Rundmc
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Personally would go nat Phillips over coady. Fixtures good, very cheap and certain to play. Depends if you need the extra million though.

      1. Vovhund
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Good point, certainly an opportunity

  14. Blandiblub
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 11 days ago

    KDB > Bruno; or be more exciting with Greenwood / Maddison, which allows Trent in (-4)? Chasing in a minileague (rivals have Bruno and none of the others mentioned). Iheanacho for a -8 (seems excessive).

    1. HellasLEAF
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Gotta get Bruno in. -4 if you must yes.

  15. 6Inbetweeners
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Do you think Davinson Sanchez is worth a punt for this double GW?

    1. Boss Hogg
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Can see him being benched for one game.
      Not for me.

      1. 6Inbetweeners
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Thanks, do you think he will play at least one?

        1. 6Inbetweeners
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 11 days ago

          It is either take a 4 point hit for someone else, or keep him in and hope he plays...

  16. Luton_Fan
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    A. Play holding
    B. Play sterling
    C. Sterling to greenwood/mount/lucas

    Tia

    1. HellasLEAF
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I would start Sterling and have Holding as at least 1st sub.

      If you are worried Sterling may come on for cameo only, then start Holding imo.

  17. HellasLEAF
    • 12 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    I know Jota is cheaper and in bit better form, but want to do KDB to Salah anyway for rest of season.

    Is Salah still on pens though? If not then Jota in..

    Thoughts on Jota vs Salah in general

  18. Mattador
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    who would you transfer out on a one week punt to get Son in?
    A) Mount
    B) Jota

  19. Nerdlinger
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Anyone putting TC on Son over Kane? There's the obvious rank gain potential but it feels like such risk ignoring Kane... Hmmm torn

  20. Fantasy man on the top
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Start 3 of these

    TAA, Shaw, Stones, Rudiger, Struijk.

    Mensy in goal
