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)

  2. Davidwes
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Which transfers?

    Kane son out, in:

    A) Bruno and DCL
    B) Rashford and Vardy

    1. Igz08
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      A by a mile

    2. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Prefer A

    3. Davidwes
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      (On a free hit)

    4. Levi's 501
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 29 days ago

      A.

  3. DavidKent
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    What are the chances that Lindelof play 3 games? He’s benched for Roma.
    Have Maguire and Fernandez already.

    1. DandyDon
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      two

      1. DavidKent
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Other than Maguire, will any play more than 2?

  4. BrockLanders
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Start Ward or Fofana?

    1. DandyDon
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      ward

  5. Buck The Trent
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    After Ralph’s latest presser, is it still safe to assume Forster will play 2 games ?

    1. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      No. He was very ambiguous over who starts

    2. DandyDon
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      didn't sound like it

    3. Igz08
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      well that sucks

    4. fcsaltyballs
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Ffs what was said?

      1. BrockLanders
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Basically said he'll rotate them for the last few games but gave no indication of who would be starting any game..

        1. fcsaltyballs
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          Didn’t he commit to Forster playing the next two in an article in the local paper a few days back?

    5. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Nope. He was kinda vague over who plays what. I'm actually hoping Forster plays in GW36 since my other keeper is Mendy.

      1. AK_FC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Same - still a bit bitter about both of them getting benched in GW 32, could really use a GW36 start from Forster.

  6. Manani
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    any of the following worth switching out for a hit? Doing BB this week:

    Reguilion Dallas Lingard

  7. DandyDon
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    2FT What do you think? A - Brave, B - Safe. Just outside 100k.

    Meslier - Sanchez*
    Targett Shaw TAA - Dunk Ayling
    Salah Lingard Jota Son* - Smith-Rowe*
    Ihenacho Vardy* Kane*

    A - Kane + Smith-Rowe to DCL + Greenwood
    B - Vardy + Son to DCL + Fernandes

    Also Sanchez to Guita worth a -4 on top!?

  8. BigKeith
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Son and Pereira to Greenwood and Zaha (-4)?

      1. BrockLanders
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Looks good moves

      2. Leeds-Utd
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Yeah good moves

      3. The Count of Monte Cristo
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Like this. Hope you had Pereira for his hauls

    • Blue Moon Rising

    • AC Yew
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Do we think Greenwood starts all 3 matches
      Got no Man U attack

      1. Hazz
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Unlikely

      2. The Count of Monte Cristo
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Start all 3 very unlikely. Off the bench in one for sure imo

    • Igz08

      Best 4.6 defender for 36 onwards?

      A) Dawson

        Greenwood out of the two but Zaha also a great shout. Has good record against bottom half

      2. BrockLanders
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Greenwood

    • wulfrunian
