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)

    1. Rival Sons Blackberry Smoke
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

    2. SH1M1

    2. Joey Barton and Friends
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      -8 for double Everton defence is too much

      1. Sid07
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        Will get guita
        It will essentially cover no he situation for next week. Since I have mendu and Forster

    3. Sid07
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Or guita instead of Pickford

    4. Rival Sons Blackberry Smoke
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      As long as you can get Kane back in

  10. wonkeydonkey
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    Using BB, only have Shaw from MU. Currently on 8 for GW36, so will need to take hits for that too.

    A) Vydra & Son to DCL & Zaha (-4)
    B) Vydra & Son to DCL & Greenwood (-4)
    C) Vydra, Son & Kane to DCL, Watkins & Bruno (-8)

    1. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      I am doing A or B but already have Bruno but selling Bruno in GW 36 to get Son back and improve defence

  11. Forgetmeknot
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    Does anyone take or see issue if I do Son and Kane to Salah and Cavani for free?

    1. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Yes Cavani will play 1 at the most, Get DCL instead

      1. Forgetmeknot
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        Already have rich.

        Who would play instead of him? I would be happy if he got 150-180 minutes across the 3 games

  12. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    Chances of Coady dropping tonight?

    1. DRIZ ✅
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      60/40

    Digne or Castagne? (On FH)

    1. DRIZ ✅
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Would definetly go for gne better fixtures

      1. andres

      Castagne

  14. Buck The Trent
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    Do you think what would be the average hits taken over GW35-36 in Top 10K-50K ?

    Thinking to take -16 in one go to prep for both GW

    1. AK_FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      I'm gonna guess -6

    2. FPL_Motty
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Um, not even going to be -4 tbh. I can get through both with just 1 hit, and even without any hit. On average it won't be higher than 4, its never been close all season in 1 gw

  15. Podorsky
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    Zaha or Watkins or DCL

    Pick 2

    1. Luton_Fan
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Dcl zaha

    2. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      1. Podorsky
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        Thanks, yes I thought so to, its just Watkins seems allways to be in the points. Great player and allways a nuisance.

        1. Reece’s Pieces
          4 months, 19 days ago

          I’ve gone Zaha/DCL

  16. AK_FC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    Thoughts on these moves? 2 FT 1.2 ITB, no chips left.
    Son + Vydra > Greenwood + DCL (Bench one of Fofana/Holgate)

    Current Squad:
    Mendy
    TAA - Shaw - Holgate - Fofana
    Bruno - Salah - Jota - Son
    Iheanacho - Kane

    (Forster; Lingard, Dallas, Vydra)

    1. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      doing the same myself. But not sure on Greenwood or Zaha

  17. Luton_Fan
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    A. Maddison to zaha -4
    B. Lingard to zaha -4
    C. Keep both.

    Thanks

    • 5 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    What would you do my bench boost team?

    I have 2 FTs and £0m ITB. I am thinking Son to Greenwood only so that I can make 3 transfers to have a full starting XI in GW 36.

    Mendy Forster
    Holding Rudiger TAA Coady Coufal
    Salah Fernandes Lingard Son Jota
    Kane Nacho Vydra

    1. Fergiesarmy
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Coady or Coufal to Holding or Phillips maybe?

      1. Mookty
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        Thanks. I have Holding and three Liverpool players though.

  19. stu92
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    Having a real dilemma here guys..

    A) Shaw/Maguire, Son, Phillips
    B) TAA, Raphinha, Lindelhof (-4)

    1. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      A Raphinha wont be fit IMO

    2. AK_FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Doubt Raphinha will be back, seems risky

  20. Sid07
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    Chances of vydra dropping tonight

  21. Fergiesarmy
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    Who has a better chance of a clean sheet this week
    A) Veltman (wolves away)
    Or
    B) Dawson (Everton home)

    1. stu92
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      A

  22. The Frenchie
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    Free hit done, please choose one:

    A) Castagne
    B) Digne
    C) Robertson

    Guaita
    TAA / Maguire
    Bruno / Greenwood / Zaha / Salah
    DCL / Vardy / Ihenacho

    1. Igz08
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      B but it will end in tears

      1. Reece’s Pieces
        4 months, 19 days ago

        I’ve got Digne. Join me ...

    2. Babit1967
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      I have the same team as u and asked the exact same question earlier, went with B

  23. Manani
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    Zaha or Greenwood?

    Greenwood got 3 games, but don't think he will play all 3 right? And Zaha fixture seems a lot better

    1. Mookty
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      I imagine everyone is going greenwood

    2. Luton_Fan
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Zaha for me. Plus he plays gw36

    3. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      I am leaning towards Zaha, it is my last decision. You?

    4. Igz08
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      I'm getting Zaha. His numbers are better and I need someone with a 36 fixture

      1. Pompel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        Greenwood numbers much superior if looking at stats

    5. DycheDycheBaby
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Zaha if you like massive traps

  24. Igz08
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    Best 4.6 defender for 36 onwards?

    A) Dawson
    B) Ayling/Llorente

    1. Igz08
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Can't get phillips

  25. Luton_Fan
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    Ahhhhh this is tough

    1. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Use LiveFPL fixture planner it has helped me out.

      Mendy (Forster)
      Shaw, TAA, Rudiger (Holding, Fofana)
      Son, Bruno, Jota, Salah, Lingard
      Kane, Nacho, Vydra

      GW35 Son, Vydra to Zaha/Greenwood/DCL
      GW36 Fofana, Rudiger and BRUNO to Son, Dallas, Cresswell for -8
      GW37 Nacho to Antonio
      GW38 Zaha/Greenwood to Raphinha

  26. Mookty
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    How many players are you all expecting to play in GW36?

    1. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      10 (11) if Forster plays with a -8

    2. Podorsky
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      11 with a -4

      1. Indpush
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        10 or 11 with a minus 4

  27. XX SMICER XX
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    1FT, on Bench Boost, keepers are Leno and Forster.
    Stick or twist?

  28. Twisted Melon
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    Is it worth taking out single GW players who also play next GW for triple GW players for a hit who don't play next GW (3 games over 2 games in 2GW's)

  29. Better luck next year
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    Decent GW35 FH team?

    Guaita
    Castagne Maguire TAA
    Salah Mane Bruno Greenwood Zaha
    Kelechi DCL

    No playing subs

      Like it. Same as mine except for 2 differences

      I have Digne and Vardy instead of Mane and Castagne

        Cheers. Trying to catch up on mini league leader who has Vardy, otherwise would have gone him instead of Mane 🙂

      This is what I said earlier. Is there any love for Lindelof? He would be a steal
