The Scout Squad’s best FPL players for Blank Gameweek 33

Double Gameweek 32 hasn’t even come to its conclusion yet but we’re already looking ahead to the next round of Premier League fixtures, with our Scout Squad panel reconvening to pick out their favoured Fantasy assets.

Less than 24 hours separate full-time in the Leicester v West Brom game and the Fantasy Premier League deadline for Blank Gameweek 33, which is at 18:30 BST on Friday.

Our panelists have a smaller pool of players to choose from this time, with four clubs – Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Southampton and Fulham – all blanking.

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 tonight.

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 Thursday evening.

DAVID SAID

With a trip to Sheffield United coming up, I am looking to Brighton’s defence for Blank Gameweek 33, including Robert Sanchez and Joel Veltman.

At the time of writing, Graham Potter’s men are still in the Premier League’s top three for expected goals conceded (xGC) over their last six matches while the Blades have blanked in four of their last five league outings.

Trent Alexander-Arnold is back to his Fantasy best right now with 7.4 points per game over the last seven matches. During his last six, he is joint-top of the league for big chances created and top among defenders for key passes.

Ricardo Pereira looks likely to play an advanced role for Leicester as they host Crystal Palace while Luke Shaw is behind only Alexander-Arnold for key passes among defenders over the last six.

Mohamed Salah should start for Liverpool when they host Newcastle on Saturday lunchtime given his Double Gameweek 32 rest. He has two goals in his last three outings.

I think Chelsea will enjoy playing West Ham on Saturday if the hosts will be without Declan Rice, Aaron Cresswell and Arthur Masuaku. The suspended Craig Dawson will also be missing, potentially opening the door for Chelsea.
The Hammers have conceded 10 goals across their last four league matches while Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic have looked dangerous in the front three, with four and three attacking returns respectively across their last four.

That said, I expect Jesse Lingard to continue his scoring run considering he has still only blanked in one start since joining West Ham and is in the Premier League’s top five for shots on target over his last six matches.

Kelechi Iheanacho‘s form has been incredible, backed up by 14 shots in the box, seven big chances and 10 shots on target over his last six, figures that put him in the division’s top three for each statistic.

Meanwhile, Crystal Palace have the Premier League’s third-worst xGC figure over the same period.

That’s also good news for Jamie Vardy even though he is less of a goal-scoring threat than Iheanacho these days. Still, over the last six matches, he is joint-top of the division for big chances created. Essentially, if Iheanacho is going to score, Vardy stands the best chance of being his assister right now.

I also fancy Chris Wood and Matej Vydra to get something at Wolves. Nuno Espirito Santo’s men may have back-to-back clean sheets but Burnley’s attack has been in much better form than Sheffield United and Fulham’s recently.

Wood is top of the Premier League for shots on target across his last six matches, with three goals to show for it.

NEALE SAID

Bruno Fernandes and Mason Greenwood are among the headline omissions from my 18-man long-list this week.

This is no longer the gung-ho Leeds United team that the Red Devils thrashed in Gameweek 14, with Marcelo Bielsa’s side more controlled at both ends of the pitch and conceding at a rate of less than a goal a game over their last nine matches – and that’s despite facing Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and West Ham United in that time.

The Whites are now conceding fewer high-quality chances but still allowing their goal to be peppered with efforts from range, which is a perfect recipe for the save-accumulating Illan Meslier.

Brighton have also been impressing at the back, with only Chelsea and City recording more clean sheets in 2021.

When Sheffield United provide the opposition, it’s usually a question of which players we triple up on rather than pondering if three assets is overkill.

The Blades have stopped the flow of headed chances conceded recently, which cools my interest in Lewis Dunk, but they are still susceptible elsewhere.

The trouble with Albion’s FPL options is that they are so evenly matched: in their last half-dozen matches, six of their players have all had between eight and 10 efforts on goal.

Adam Lallana isn’t a name we hear talked about much in FPL circles these days but he is among that contingent (eight shots in the box is better than what even Danny Welbeck can offer) and has been in superb ‘real-life’ form of late, so I’m backing him to exploit Sheffield United’s soft underbelly through the middle of the park.

Another wildcard pick is Conor Townsend, who is among the top ten defenders for big chances created since Gameweek 24. Why Gameweek 24? Well, that is the point at which Okay Yokuslu and Ainsley Maitland-Niles were first paired in the starting XI together. The two January window signings have made a massive difference to the Baggies and, ahead of Thursday’s game against Leicester, no side has conceded fewer Premier League goals over the last ten Gameweeks.

Ongoing concerns about Ricardo Pereira’s fitness lead me to Wesley Fofana as my Leicester pick. The young stopper has gained bonus points in four of the six matches in which he has kept a clean sheet and wasn’t too far away on the other two occasions.

Adama Traore also gets the nod and it’s not just because he has attacking returns in his last three appearances. It’s more about a tweak in position, with the flying winger now often operating more centrally alongside Willian Jose and seeing an increase in penalty box touches as a result.

This weekend, he and an admittedly limited Wolves attack face a Burnley side on the division’s longest clean sheet drought.

TOM SAID…

I’ve doubled up on Brighton and Hove Albion’s defence ahead of their Gameweek 33 meeting with Sheffield United, via Robert Sánchez and Lewis Dunk. Graham Potter’s side have now kept three clean sheets in their last four matches, while the Blades have managed just seven shots on target across the last six Gameweeks.

Wolverhampton Wanderers also get a defensive double-up from me. Against Sheffield United in Gameweek 32, Nuno Espírito Santo reverted his team back to a 3-4-3 formation, which helped shore up the defence and secure a second successive clean sheet. If they are to continue with that system on Sunday, Rui Patrício and Conor Coady could again be in the points.

However, my top defender pick this week is Trent Alexander-Arnold. In the last four matches, the 22-year-old has produced 40 FPL points, combining a goal and two assists with two clean sheets. Impressively, he has collected maximum bonus in all four of those encounters, too.

They’re joined at the back by keeper Emiliano Martínez, plus defenders Ricardo Pereira and Rob Holding.

Further forward, it’s hard to overlook Liverpool duo Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota given their fixture, and their selections need little explanation, so I’ll focus on some of my other picks.

Ahead of Gameweek 32, I included Manchester United duo Bruno Fernandes and Mason Greenwood in my squad. However, this time, I’m not convinced an attacking double-up will pay off. Leeds United have proved tough to break down at Elland Road in recent matches, and in their last six home games have let in just three goals. That improved defensive form has coincided with some good performances by Diego Llorente, who is developing into a quality centre-back.

Meanwhile, both of Leicester City’s forwards also get the nod. Kelechi Iheanacho scored his 15th goal of the season last weekend, with the in-form Nigeria striker set up by Jamie Vardy. And though the latter is experiencing a cold streak, with just one goal since the turn of the year, he has been unfortunate not to return more, with a -3.13 expected goals (xG) delta during that period.

The list is completed by Mason Mount, who should be deployed further forward against West Ham United, Bukayo Saka, plus forwards Danny Welbeck, Ollie Watkins and Patrick Bamford.

ANDY SAID

Sheffield United continue to be the worst defence in the league, conceding 13.50 expected goals (xG) in the last six matches. In that same time, Neal Maupay has had seven shots in the box and created eight chances, more than fellow forward Danny Welbeck.

If we’re going down the ‘on the beach’ narrative then Crystal Palace will be one of the first teams on the list. Already on 38 points, there’s very little to play for, and they have a defence that has been leaky all season. Kelechi Iheanacho is currently recording 0.77 expected goal involvements (xGI) per 90 minutes over the last six matches. While Jamie Vardy is still behind that, I’m backing him to get back to scoring ways this week after having three big chances in the last six.

Only João Cancelo has a higher xGI (0.28) per 90 minutes than Trent Alexander-Arnold (0.26) among FPL defenders. The Liverpool right-back has only scored less than eight points twice over the last seven matches, and Newcastle United is the perfect fixture to keep that run going.

        He isnt starting tonight

        1. Igz08
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Don’t see why he wouldn’t. Is that leaked lineup reliable?

          1. Rondon9
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years

            Has been in the past

      Fofana

      1. liverpool01
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Thanks guys will go for Fofana.

    4. FPL_Motty
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Soyuncu. Why is everyone saying fofana? There's only 0.3m difference and soyuncu is definitely the most nailed, better bps. Fofana if budget is really tight still a good option

      1. FPL_Motty
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Having said that he's picked up 0 bonus so maybe not. He normally smashes passing bonus in sky game so I thought that would mean better bonus in FPL, ignore that bit! He's still better in my opinion

        1. liverpool01
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Will watch tonights game see who does better lol.

  2. JBG
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    DCL back in training probably means he starts next GW, right? Which makes my transfer plans complicated... Wanted to take him out for Ihenacho. But now that DCL is probably back, is it better that I just downgrade Areola to 4.0 and upgrade Lucas to Greenwood for -4. Gives me this team for next GW.

    Martinez
    Lowton-Coady-Azpi-Shaw
    Salah-Bruno-Lingard-Greenwood
    DCL-Bamford

    1. liverpool01
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I would get Ihenacho he's on form and great fixtures.

      1. JBG
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        So DCL to Ihenacho and Lucas to Greenwood?

        1. liverpool01
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Yes

          1. JBG
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Thanks.

    2. KAALI_DAAL
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Isnt DCL supposed to have a DGW soon?

    3. Hktrader88
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Thoughts on Martinelli? Laca and Auba out, he's played the last 2 games. Stats wise he looks a far bigger threat than Saka. 8 goal attempts in the last 2 games, admittedly against SheffU and Fulham, but Arsenal have a good run - Everton, Newcastle (Chelsea),, WBA, Palace and Brighton. Any Arsenal fans know if he's nailed (Until Laca/Auba return)?

      1. Bavarian
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        will they score without Laca and Auba, not worth it in my opinion.

    4. Buck The Trent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Would you do Azpi (whm) to TAA or just save FT?

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Yes

    5. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      How's this got a plan assuming Ben Crellin's double and blanks are correct:

      Mendy, Forster
      Alonso, rudiger, TAA, Shaw, veltman
      Salah, jota, Lucas, lingard, son
      Kane, nacho, hydra

      GW33 Lucas - maddison
      GW34 Vydra - bamford
      GW35 FH
      GW36 Alonso & Maddison - Raphinha & Dallas (-4)

    6. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Bit concerned if will have playing 11 so I am considering following- good moves or not?

      A Son to Greenwood or Maddison. ( for good fixture v Leeds or Crystal Palace this week and Bruno to Son next week when United have Liverpool and Son v Sheffield United) and
      B - 4 to also replace 1 Leno with Martinez or 2 Alonso to Shaw?

      Leno
      TAA Fofana Rûdiger Alonso
      Salah Lingard Bruno Jota
      Iheanacho (c) Vydra

      Forster Holding Kane* Son*

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        I think A is enough. Has forster lost his spot?

        1. dunas_dog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Thanks- not sure what position is on Leno and Forster- hopefully Leno will start this weekend

    7. PP6
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Son and Stones to TAA and Trossard/Adama/Siggy worth a hit?

      1. Rondon9
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Any plan to get Son back in for SHU in 34?

        1. PP6
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Maybe yes. Bruno to Son

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

      Any goalie for the rest of the season?

      Need to shift Mendy.

      Please....

      1. Craicer
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        I'm probably shifting to Meslier or Leno.

        1. Stupendous
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Hmm. Do leeds do clean sheets?
          Have holding and not a fan of a double up there.
          Thanks for your advice though!

          1. Craicer
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            They don't yet he's still 3rd on point total. Lots of save points.

            1. Stupendous
              • 8 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              Very true! Thanks again

      4. Sif
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Has to be between Patricio & Meslier for me.

        Don't have either team covered in defense. They play almost the same teams tbf.

        1. Stupendous
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          I'm leaning Patricio but he was horrible for me earlier on. Blanks every week it felt

      5. Reece’s Pieces
          3 months, 8 days ago

          I just shifted Mendy to Patricio

      6. The Red Devil
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        How to fit in TAA (willing to do -4)

        Sanchez/Martinez
        Stones/Phillips/Shaw/rudiger/dunk
        Salah/lingard/bruno/jota/son
        Kane/vydra/nacho

        1 FT 1.5 ITB

        Go from one Phillips (Nat) to another? (Matt)

        1. xw416
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Good team overall. I’d downgrade one of the goalie to upgrade Stones, depends on Stones’ value to you.

          1. The Red Devil
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Issue is I've 3 pool already, I've to sell Phillips/jota to get TAA
            Selling stones and a keeper would mean a -8
            But I'd like to do the transfers at max -4

      7. Igz08
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Dias -> Dunk for free this week?

        Have Son and Kane too but can’t quite bring myself to sell either.

        Maybe a Son -> Mount/Kai with a view to get Bale the week after? Am around 12k

        1. Baines on Toast...
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          I wouldn't sell Son, he looks sharp again. Dunk is dependable.

          1. DavvaMC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Is Veltman a good shout instead of Dunk, not see much of Brighton this year.

            1. Igz08
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

                Veltman outscored Dunk is that what you are saying?

          2. Igz08
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Other option is Shaw..

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

        Mount or Pulisic?

        1. hustler7
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Tough one, Mount guaranteed more mins I think

          1. Stupendous
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Yea deffo but also gets benched at times too. Tuchel is worse than pep

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              Not even Mendy is safe!

              1. Stupendous
                • 8 Years
                3 months, 8 days ago

                Exactly!

                Or Azpi ffs!

                I have Mendy Azpi Rudi

                Nightmare that needs to end

        2. Sho-kun
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Mount is safer

          1. Stupendous
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Thanks

        3. Reece’s Pieces
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Mount. But may be better options in that price bracket

                As a Digne owner I wouldn't recommend, he's brought me nothing but frustration

                    Cheers.....I'll go for a Leicester defender then.

                    Pereira is not playing tonight I understand....so maybe castagne

                      I like Digne and planning to bring him in, double incoming + plays 36 when Leicester is expected to blank.
                      Also DCL is back so his crosses may finally reach the target.
                      The only worry is that with Siggy and Rodriguez back he isn't on set pieces anymore?

                        how "back" is DCL? havent seen any reports, and I'm on WC so its a bit of important news to me xD

                          Back in training, don't know more than that. I'm dropping him in a -4 move. If you're on WC it should be a easy choice.

                          Sorry, should say "should be back" - Ancelotti mentioned it last week, hope he confirms today!

                Think I'd just do Alonso to Pererai

                  Cheers..... pereira isn't playing tonight and doubt for weekend

                  Watkins doubles 35 and plays 36. And he plays wba at weekend

                  I don't think alonso starts at weekend and I have no bench

                  Digne also doubles 35 and plays 36....Will consider the best defender....thanks

                Would you take out Kane to accommodate Salah? Or is that short-termism that will backfire..

                I have 2FT and 0.2 ITB

                Mendy
                Rudiger - Shaw - TAA - Amartey
                Salah - Bruno - Jota - [Neto]
                Iheanacho - Vydra

                Forster - Kane - Son - Dias

                I'm stuggling to know what to do, particularly given the Mendy situation. Do I:

                1. Neto, Son -> Greenwood, Lingard
                2. Neto, Son, Forster -> Greenwood, Lingard, Martinez (-4)
                3. Neto, Kane -> Vardy, Greenwood
                4. Neto, Kane -> Vardy, Lingwood

                B) Sonny & DCL --> Salah & Vydra & Holding (-4)

                Time to ditch Mendy?
                Or give him another week?

                  I'll also engage here since you are asking the same question. Who you thinking? Safety Martinez and Ederson minus the blank of course.
                  Punt Schmeichel and Patricio

                    I'm thinking Patricio myself as I literally can't afford the other 3 unless I take a hit

                  He probably plays but the question is still who's got better fixtures until end of season? I think im sucking up my mistake and going back to martinez, extra game and some good fixtures coming up (those everton fixtures should be green)

                  Mendy has only 1 standout fixture left with Fulham. He failed miserably on his good run and now its coming to and end, I'd rather keep a chels def but Mendy doesnt seem worth it, especially as he will only get 6pts when theres a clean sheet and martinez can still get 4pts conceding 2 goals..

                    Ditch!! Patricio is a fair swap at just 0.1 more

                  Thoughts on transfers for those with Mendy & Forster? Mendy likely to start the next game(s), right?

                    Yea I just don't think he's worth it, and I have triple Chelsea def with him

                    I'm going to wait and roll my FT.

                    He is likely to start this weekend.

                  1 FT 0.1m. Only FH left.

                  Best Stones replacement for 5.1m?

                  Alternatively could do Kane & Gundo > Vydra & Salah (C) ...

                  Martinez
                  Dunk, TAA, Shaw, Konsa
                  Jota, Bruno, Lingard

                  Better option for this gw only?

                  A. Vardy (have nacho)
                  B. Watkins

                      Watkins for my money.

                      It's not as if Leicester shredded Southampton and form this season points to Watkins over Vardy who is hugely reliant on pens for value.

                    Did Arteta say anything about Leno/Ryan?

                    I have Leno/Forster combo and don't know if I should get worried or Ryan was one match thing?

                    Also, any thoughts on Nketiah? I have playing 11 but includes Alonso, so I can do Alonso-Digne long term or Davis-Nketiah and have Alonso covered.

                    Best replacement for Alonso? He's not reliable anymore and I need a starter for this GW + ideally someone with DGW later.

                    a)Digne (plays 36, so would be ideal)
                    b)Pereira(Fofana) - Pereira fitness worry and Fofana no goal threat?
                    c)Saiss - WOL looking good but no doubles

                    Defence is TAA/Rudiger/Holding/Veltman.

                      I'd think so, 4-5-1 was a special case against united. Back to 4-4-2 as Dyche looks for 3 points.

                      3 months, 8 days ago

                      Team looks good but there may be a double and blank coming so could be worth saving for that

                        3 months, 8 days ago

                        Nice team, not sold on Trossard though, he has been brought off early a few times.
                        I'm also leaning towards FH in GW33, despite possible upcoming DGWs, as those doubles do not seem very attractive. But very hard decision that

                      Really really like it - especially at the back.

                      Would switch Trossard and Cavani to Maddison Welbeck if Maddison looks hot tonight. Retcent form suggests that Welbeck is the form Brighton attacker and not Trossard. The two early subs recently would put me off Tross.

                      How close could you get to Mane Mo in midfield if you switched Robbo to Veltman and downgraded Puli? Punty of course but historically TAA I believe improves Mane more than Mo.

                        Yes, like the maddison switch if he looks good tonight. I could get mane in with Mo by swapping Cavani to Welbeck and trossard to Mane by downgrading Robbo to someone cheaper and playing Rudi.
                        I think this week has better fixtures than 35 when looking at the team I go back to after the free hit.
