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)

THE CAPTAIN

    Would you sell Son for -4 to any of the below. (Have Kane and no attack from the below teams)

    A) Siggy
    B) El ghazi
    C) JWP
    D) other with double & game in the blank? (Have pool)

    1. Gomolon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      No, although I sold Son on a -4 this week to bring in Salah

      1. Street Friend
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Thankfully have Bruno Salah Jota already.

        Playing 2 transfers in Holding saiss to Maguire & X defender. Would be Mitchel. But if I have Son funds can go for Dallas

    2. Street Friend
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      I should rephrase this

      A) Son & Mitchel -bench
      B) Siggy Dallas -bench -4

      Mitchel or Dallas needed for GW 36

  2. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Is team and bench order look ok to go?

    Guaita
    TAA Maguire Fofana Digne
    Salah Bruno (c) Greenwood Jota
    Kane Iheanacho

    Forster Lingard Holding Vydra

    1. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Yep, good to go I think!

    2. wulfrunian
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Good to go.

    3. Street Friend
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Looks very good. Little light for BGW

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Thanks- may need -8 ( Iheanacho, Bruno and Fofana will go) but not much option as pretty much landed with this squad this week

    4. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Okay for 35 but six blank GW-ers. How are you handing that? If FH ignore, otherwise would be tempted to move someone like Holding or Fofana to someone who doubles in 35 & plays in 36 to protect any future hits.

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Thanks. Did wonder about Fofana to Dallas this week for hit (so full defence for 36) and play Lingard this week. Plan at present next week to Aguero for Newcastle game ( nostalgia pick!) and Bruno 8 m or under mid. Possibly also Vydra go Antonio

  3. Mahjongking

        • 4 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

    4 months, 17 days ago

    After doubt over forster game time and the fact he has blank in gw36 (i have mendy who doesnt play either) would u do forster to guita/pickford and who? Thx

      • 6 Years

      I have brought in Guaita

    2. Street Friend
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Just wait. Mendy play this week. Following week sell him to Meslier

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

    3. Patio Kev
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      I expect Forster will got one of the games this week and then either GW37 or GW38. I would stick personally.

    4. Mookty
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      He will be playing the next two games.

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Hassenhutl was not clear on who starts- see Scout tweets

    Man Utd Europa League Final is on Weds 26th May by which time they will almost certainly have secured their Top 4 spot for next seasons Champions League.

    So how many of these Man Utd players that everybody is seemingly falling over themselves to get in do we think will actually play in their likely totally meaningless last fixture of the season on Sunday 23rd May just 3 days before the Cup Final ?

    1. Shteve
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      They can be transferred out again you know..

  6. AlCapwnUK
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    BB team
    No more chips
    No more FT

    Martinez, Mendy
    Shaw, Rudiger, Target, Cresswell, Dallas
    Bruno, Salah, JWP, Son, Lingard
    Iheanacho, DCL, Bamford

    Worth taking a hit for more dgw/tgw players? Looking more at the dgwers with a game next week as well.

  7. Mookty
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    How many points do you have think Man Utd players with get in the triple gameweek?

    1. StayoutheSpiceZone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Best one probably Bruno Greenwood and Maguire

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

      All of them will get over 10 pts

    3. Ohh1454
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      On Fh I’ve Maguire Bruno and rashford

  8. Sid07
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Thoughts on son + vydra + coady + Mendy to Greenwood + Watkins + digne + guiata (-8)

    1. Street Friend
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Just do son and coady for no hit. Mendy doubles and sort out next week.

  9. Daghe Munegu
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    BB good to go ?

    Guaita Forster
    TAA Shaw Digne Holding Fofana
    Salah Bruno Son Jota Greenwood
    Nacho DCL Watkins

    1. Street Friend
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Personally don’t see Holding playing 2 games but who knows

      1. Old Bull
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Why not? Cleanie tonight.

    2. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Yes looks good

  10. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Do you think Leno plays both games in double?

    1. DA Minnion (Legendary manag…
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      No

    2. Peekay
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      i have the same headache. Hopefully now that they're out of Europe he'll get back in goal

  11. Mookty
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    GTG? Bench Boost, 2FTs and £0 ITB.

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

  12. Old Bull
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Missed the games tonight. What can we take from the Utd game? Why was AWB subbed?

    1. StayoutheSpiceZone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Rested as they have got a ridiculous schedule

      1. Old Bull
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Thanks. So he just might get the 3 games

        1. StayoutheSpiceZone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 17 days ago

          I don’t think anyone apart from maguire will play all three

          1. Ruinenlust
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 17 days ago

            But he played 90 tonight. Is that not concerning

            1. StayoutheSpiceZone
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              4 months, 17 days ago

              He plays every minute of everything

    2. Shteve
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      He got a yellow in first half so that might have influenced it. Also possible that it was preplanned as both full backs were taken off at ht

  13. Ruinenlust
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Greenwood or Zaha??

    1. xHaTr
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      G

    2. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      G

    3. Mookty
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      I'm thinking Greenwood may not get 4 more points than Zaha now so he's not worth a hit.

  14. StayoutheSpiceZone
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Are you guys happy with this?

    Martinez
    Keane Shaw TAA
    Salah (TC) Jota Bruno Zaha
    DCL Vardy Nacho

    Forster, Raph, Tosin, Dallas

    1. xHaTr
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Looks good to me! Particularly given thats not a free hit..

      1. xHaTr
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Surely TC Bruno though?

        1. StayoutheSpiceZone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 17 days ago

          I think they both get two games. Salah more shots! That’s my only reasoning

      2. StayoutheSpiceZone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Thank you

  15. xHaTr
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    A: Mane and Watkins

    B: Zaha and Vardy

    1. StayoutheSpiceZone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      B

    2. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      B. Can't trust Mane right now

      1. GinjaWhinja
        • 12 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Mane loves scoring against big teams. And he's playing his former club.

    3. Street Friend
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      I’d just go off your needs for BGW.
      50/50 for this week

  16. Better Call Raul
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Which scores more DGW35 ?

    A) Holding + Bale + Kane

    B) Maguire + Zaha + DCL (-8)

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

      B

    2. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      B

  17. Sulley
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Would you do Maddison > Greenwood with FT.

    Would mean a hit next week to field 11.

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

      It would mean that anyway. Madds blanks in 36 aswell

      1. Sulley
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Yeah but saving the FT will give me the 2 I need next week to get back to 11

  18. tomasjj

    BB team GTG?

    Henderson/Mendy
    TAA/Maguire/Castagne/Phillips/Rudiger
    Jota/Saka/Havertz/Greenwood (c) /Lingard
    Vardy/Nacho/Kane

    1. StayoutheSpiceZone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Love the captain - I’ve just shipped out Saka, arsenal are hideous

    2. Fit_to_drop
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Very strong. I’m sorry I didn’t keep my BB for end of season doubles

  19. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    A) Bamford > Watkins
    B) Bamford/Holding > Watkins/Mitchell
    C) Bamford/Holding > Watkins/5.1m
    D) Bamford/Holding > DCL/Mitchell

    BCD are for free this week, but essentially a -4 as it'll force me to take a hit in GW36.

    For C, which DEF? Everton fits price-wise, but I don't really trust them this GW.

    1. jonnybhoy
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      D

    2. wulfrunian
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      I think it's worth to get Dcl.Do you think that Palace will keep a cs vs SUtd?

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Maybe.

        With A I can get DCL (for Nacho) next week, for free, still so not the worst loss if I wait.

        Watkins is in fine form. Vs. Rotated United & Everton who he scored against.

        1. Crunchie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 17 days ago

          D Mitchell will start

  20. DavidKent
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    How good an asset is Son for this GW only?

    I’m on a WC and could sell him for another DGW player, but think he’ll do really well against Leaky Leeds

    Currently have:

    Forster
    Lindelhof, Maguire, TAA
    Salah, Son, Fernandes, Ward Prouse
    Kane, Iheanacho, Watkins
    (McCarthy, Philips, Target, Bissouma)

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

      Leeds been solid at home recently

    2. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Leaky Leeds? They have been pretty solid lately

      1. DavidKent
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        So should I sack him off you think? Maybe Greenwood and someone else in defence instead of Lindlehof?

  21. Gentle_Turks
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Which BB team floats your boat?

    A
    Mendy
    TAA Shaw Holding
    Salah Bruno Greenwood Jota
    DCL Nacho Kane
    Forster Fofana Lingard Ward

    B
    Mendy
    TAA Shaw Maguire
    Salah Bruno Zaha Jota
    Watkins Nacho Kane
    Forster Fofana Lingard Holding

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Cheers. What's your main reason? Greenwood over Zaha, or DCL over Watkins?

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

          Dcl over watkins

  22. FFS Ultras are for Kinnear
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    I hope Arsenal players are priced for what they are next season. A mid table team not playing in Europe. So similar to Everton prices this season.

  23. OptimusBlack
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Vardy out and Get DCL ?
    Yaaaay money would help
    Nope keep Vardy

        He purchased Lingard at 6.4, so if he drops to 6.6 tonight he won't lose any value on him.

      I rate this question hugely.

      Chasing Maguire.
      REALLY chasing Mane.

      Don't like captaining a non-attacking defender.

      He won't get bonus, he won't score. Even if he does play all 3, what's the max he can get? 2 clean sheets so 14 points? Many better options.

    Looking at GW 35 & 36.
    The latter on each for 36 and beyond.

    A) son (start 35/36) & Mitchell (benched 35)
    B) Siggy (start 35/36) & Dallas -4 (benched 35)

    Aiming to BB this week. Current team

    Martinez, Leno
    Saiss, Castagne, Coufal, Rudiger, Phillips
    Bruno, Son, Salah, Jota, Lingard
    Kane, Kelechi, Vydra

    Thinking of Leno, Kane, Vydra > Henderson, DCL, Watkins

    Can I let Kane go?
    Have FH for 36 if needed

    1. Jimbo-Jones

      Saiss should go ahead of Leno/Kane.

    Coady & Gundo to:

    1. AWB & JWP (bench lingard)

      Avoid Zaha until you hear from Roy H. Looked like he had a niggle last week and very off it
