Scout Picks

Triple Gameweek 35 Scout Picks features three Man United assets

A Manchester United triple-up forms the spine of our Triple Gameweek 35 Scout Picks.

The Red Devils have three fixtures between Sunday and Thursday, so we have included three of their best assets accordingly.

Meanwhile, Liverpool, Leicester and Crystal Palace have each supplied two players to the best XI for Triple Gameweek 35.

As ever, we line up in the 3-4-3 formation and come in at £82.6m, £0.4m inside our £83.0m budget.

Goalkeeper

Vicente Guaita (£4.8m) makes a rare appearance in the Scout Picks off the back of Crystal Palace’s appealing pair of Triple Gameweek 35 fixtures. They face the division’s lowest scorers in Sheffield United, who are in the bottom four for shots inside the box alongside Southampton over the last six matches.

Defenders

Who has the best and worst FPL fixtures for the Run-In?

Saints also face Liverpool, arguably boosting Trent Alexander-Arnold‘s (£7.6m) defensive credentials while a Thursday-night meeting with Manchester United is unlikely to yield many goals based on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s usual tactics in the bigger matches. Meanwhile, during his last six, no Premier League defender has created more big chances than Alexander-Arnold.

Timothy Castagne (£5.8m) has recently become a key component of Leicester’s attack considering, among the Foxes’ players, only their centre-forwards and Ricardo Pereira have touched the ball in the box more often than him over the last six Gameweeks. The Belgian is, of course, much more likely to start twice in Triple Gameweek 35 and has 22 points in his last three outings.

Harry Maguire (£5.5m) is the most nailed-on Manchester United defender for Triple Gameweek 35. Since the Red Devils resumed European competitions, the centre-back has played every available Premier League minute from Gameweek 24 to Gameweek 34. Solskjaer’s men have conceded just three goals across their last six, the joint-best in the Premier League.

Midfielders

No top-flight player has produced more shots in the box than Mohamed Salah (£12.7m) over the last six matches, suggesting he will get plenty of opportunities against Southampton and even Manchester United in Triple Gameweek 35. Saints are inside the division’s bottom three for big chances conceded over the same period while the Red Devils could be suffering with fatigue by the time they host Liverpool on Thursday, having already played two games in three days before that.

Three matches for Bruno Fernandes (£11.5m) in Triple Gameweek 35 make it very hard to look past the premium midfielder in the Scout Picks. While there are doubts that he will start three times this round, the Red Devils do have the luxury of a four-goal lead against Roma in the semi-finals of the Europa League as well as no fixture in Blank Gameweek 36. Meanwhile, Fernandes has started every league match since Manchester United’s European campaign resumed in February and, over the last six, is top among all midfielders for expected goal involvement (xGI).

Mason Greenwood‘s (£7.2m) versatility and ability to do damage from the bench has helped him get into the Triple Gameweek 35 Scout Picks. Over the last six matches, he is top among all colleagues for shots in the box, shots on target and goals scored.

Wilfried Zaha (£7.2m) has supplied two attacking returns in his last four starts since coming back from injury. Crystal Palace’s next two opponents, Sheffield United and Southampton, are two of the three worst sides for conceding big chances in the last six.

Forwards

Since Gameweek 29, no Premier League player has been afforded more big chances than Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.5m). Meanwhile, West Ham and Aston Villa combine for a total of zero clean sheets over their last six matches.

Ollie Watkins (£6.5m) has produced either a goal or assist in each of his past five Premier League appearances, making him a useful addition for the Triple Gameweek 35 Scout Picks.

Kelechi Iheanacho (£6.3m) has become a virtual auto-include in the Scout Picks in recent weeks. Since Gameweek 24, he has notched up nine goals and two assists, suggesting he can still offer something against Newcastle and Manchester United in Triple Gameweek 35.

Substitutes

  • Edouard Mendy (£5.2m)
  • Lucas Digne (£6.1m)
  • Tyrick Mitchell (£3.8m)
  • Anwar El Ghazi (£5.2m)

    Martinez (Forster)
    TAA, Coleman, Fofana, Rudiger, Coufal
    Salah, Bruno, Son, Lingard, Jota
    Kane, Iheanacho, Wood

    With 2FT and no FH/BB should I do any of these transfers?

    A) Fofana + Wood > Maguire + Benteke
    B) Fofana + Lingard > Maguire + JWP
    C) Fofana + Son > Maguire + Greenwood

    Best upgrade with Kane to dcl money with 36 in mind?
    A) holding to coufal (bench)
    B) vydra to Watkins (play, bench lingard)

  3. The Red Devil
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    Castagne or Evans or digne?

    1. JBG
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Digne, because of fixtures going forward.

      1. The Red Devil
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Got FH for 36, so just for 35

    2. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Digne but his middle name is ‘disappointment’

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      I like Digne personally.

      1. The Red Devil
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Just for 35?

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          And 36. He has SHU in 36.

          1. The Red Devil
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 20 days ago

            Yes, but I'll use FH in 36 so no issues in that regard

        2. The 12th Man
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          He plays Sheff United in 36. Wolves in 37.

          1. JBG
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 20 days ago

            This

          2. Little Red Lacazette
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 20 days ago

            Are you getting him in?

            1. The 12th Man
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 20 days ago

              No. I went Coleman last week.

    Thoughts on this? Leaning into A personally as I don't think losing Son and a -4 is worth it for TAA, but willing to be convinced otherwise.

    A) Maguire, Phillips, Son
    B) TAA, Lindelhof, JWP (-4)

  5. PP6

    Lingard and Dias to Zaha and Maguire ? For free.?

    1. JBG
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Yes, but is Zaha healthy?

    2. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Zaha is a trap.

  6. balint84
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    A) Kabak
    B) Ward
    C) Lindelof
    Choose 1 pls to play

  9. Weasel Boy

    Does ling/son + Vydra > JWP + Benteke sound rubbish?
    2 fts

    Have little in the bank but would give me BB team below.

    Mendy*
    Shaw* Phillips* Rudi*
    Salah* Bruno(c)* Jota* JWP*
    Kane Nacho* Benteke*
    Forster* Castagne* Son/ling Coufal

    Thoughts on holgate?
    Brought him in last week, plays every game, last no show was gw 21, still played games before that also, some feel maybe some gametime doubt on dgw, and remaining fixtures all of a sudden
    Cheers

  11. Little Red Lacazette
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    Likely Henderson starts all 3 games now?

    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      I think 2

  12. Bobby Digital
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    Pick one:

    A. Shaw and Zaha
    B. Siggy and AWB

    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      A

    2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Provided Zaha is fit

  13. Bobby Digital
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    Can't understand why OGS plays his best lineup...

    1. son of city
        2 months, 20 days ago

        To sabotage your plans

      • jason_ni
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        He is absolutely desperate for a final/cup.

        Doesn't want to take any additional risk by fielding a weaker team.

        Its a joke.

    2. donbagino
        2 months, 20 days ago

        a) Lingard --> Greenwood
        b) Gundo --> Greenwood and Dallas -->4,6 def (maybe N. Philips? Holding? CP def?) for a hit

        1. Bobby Digital
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          B

        2. donbagino
            2 months, 20 days ago

            or maybe
            c) Gundo --> Greenwood and Kane -->DCL (for a hit)?
            or rather better to hold Kane. Can he outscore DCL who has 2 games?

          • Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 20 days ago

            B

        3. frenchfries
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Martinez
          TAA Holding Targett
          Bruno Salah Son Jota Lingard
          Kane Iheanacho

          Sanchez Dawson Rudiger Davis

          Martinez+Lingard -> Pickford+Zaha for free?

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 20 days ago

            Is Zaha fit?

            1. Bobby Digital
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 20 days ago

              I'd like to know this as well. It's Siggy time if he isn't.

          2. frenchfries
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 20 days ago

            I just assumed, as he is not flagged. Hmm

        4. Og
          • 5 Years

          Was thinking of son to Rashford.. has he been dropped or rested tonight?

          1. Gudjohnsen
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 20 days ago

            Rested

        5. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Which 2 to play:

          A) Konsa
          B) Rudiger
          C) Mitchell

          If A is included then which GK:

          A) Martinez
          B) Forster

        6. Cancelo Culture
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Getting Greenwood would cost me -8 to hit him in and then out again to field 11 in 36.

          Worth it?

          1. Street Friend
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 20 days ago

            My gut says someone like Siggy is better than Greenwood. Aka avoiding hits and plays shef after

          2. The Knights Template
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 20 days ago

            Yes, if he scores 20pts.

        7. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          You're talking about flop signings this season and Partey has to be up there. He's been really disappointing all season. Cannot control the midfield, isn't particularly good box to box, no attacking threat, not amazing defensively. I've seen very little from him to justify the price tag.

          1. Bobby Digital
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 20 days ago

            He costs as much as the whole Villa starting lineup. Puts things in perspective.

          2. Scots Gooner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 20 days ago

            He's been garbage.

            Hopefully a case of taking a season to settle in.

          Kabak or Philips?

        9. Street Friend
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Mendy

          Reckon that's enough ? Really would like to save transfer 🙂

            It will be the minimum for most but you’ll likely have the advantage over them next week

                2 months, 20 days ago

                Yeah, I've heard some rumblings there will at least be another protest for Liverpool, and possible Leicester as well.

              Yes. Expecting another protest before the Liverpool game

            • 7 Years

            How many starts do we think Aguero gets in the last 3 games?
            Considering Kane > DCL this week
            Then Iheanacho > Aguero next,

            1. AC/DC AFC
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 20 days ago

              He'll get minutes but 30 here and 60 there until the final game.

                • 7 Years
                2 months, 20 days ago

                Not worth it then until the final week.

          • AC/DC AFC
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 20 days ago

            Roma v Utd could have been 2-2 easily.

            Or 3.1

            1. jason_ni
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 20 days ago

              Ddg showing why he should still be the #1.

              1. AC/DC AFC
                • 5 Years
                2 months, 20 days ago

                It's been a good game.

                Cavani class too.

                  I am bigger fan of Maguire, but good enough.

                  Don’t sell Rudiger.

                  Sell holding to Shaw or Everton defender
