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)

      Dan Burn to Nat Phillips or Joel Ward?

      I already own Trent so would be double up on Liv defence.

        Love how dull this transfer is.

          Ha. Already done Son to Greenwood. Want to leave enough to get Son back next week and rest of team is in pretty good shape. I own Veltman as well so don’t want the Brighton double up given their fixtures.

      2. Ohh1454
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        I’d probably go ward

      3. 2OLEgend
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Ward

        Mendy Forster
        TAA Rudiger Holding Regulion* Coady*

        d) Somethin else

          Expecting Mane to start both games in 35?

          1. 2OLEgend
              2 months, 24 days ago

              Would think so, yes

          2. 2OLEgend
              2 months, 24 days ago

              Would you change anything?
              On FH, money no problem

              TAA, Castagne, Shaw
              Salah, Bruno, Greenwood, Zaha
              Nacho, Vardy, DCL
              (Forster, Ward, Smith-Rowe, KWP)

                Digne over Castagne for me personally. Everton defence pretty strong away from home

                Pretty similar. Nice team!

                  KWP first bench (for what it is worth)

                  2 months, 24 days ago

                  I’m not convinced by Zaha. Both because of his injury worry and his stats.

                  1. 2OLEgend
                      2 months, 24 days ago

                      Who would you rather have?

                        Cheers bruhs.
                        Like Castagne's new role in midfield, but it's close with Digne - I agree

                        • 1 Year
                        2 months, 24 days ago

                        I think if you look back at Guitas points in the last 6 games, there is nothing to suggest he is going to haul. I’d go Schmiechel.

                      • 1 Year
                      2 months, 24 days ago

                      How would you rate this FH team ? 53 points behind ML so chasing dreams

                      Guiata
                      TAA Shaw Castagne
                      Salah Mane Fernandes Greenwood Zaha
                      Iheanacho DCL

                      ML leader already has Salah, TAA, Fernandes and might get Greenwood!

                      Thinking of going Greenwood (c).

                      Any other differentials come to mind ?

                      1. 2OLEgend
                          2 months, 24 days ago

                          I like it 😉
                          Mane the biggest punt in there imo

                        • Fit_to_drop
                          • 1 Year
                          2 months, 24 days ago

                          Mane has looked low on confidence all season. Not for me.

                      2. Mookty
                        • 5 Years
                        2 months, 24 days ago

                        So you all think Greenwood will get more than 4 points more than Zaha and Calvert Lewin?

                        1. 2OLEgend
                            2 months, 24 days ago

                            Nope

                        2. Finding Timo
                            2 months, 24 days ago

                            Some yes or no quickies 1, spurs either blank or only score 1 v leeds? 2, play Rüdiger over holding? 3, captain Bruno over Salah ? Thanks

                              1) who knows
                              2) I’d say so
                              3) chasing go Salah

                              1. Finding Timo
                                  2 months, 24 days ago

                                  Thanks I am leading my ML so not chasing so maybe Bruno safer option

                                Any ideas what to do here folks?
                                2FT's and 0.8 spare.
                                2 United players this week. 4 blanks in total next week.

                                  Coady to Everton Def. keep 2nd transfer

                                    Was thinking maybe Rudiger, even though he has a double? Since he has the blank next week. Like the Everton def shout though.

                                  I am in a similar pickle but with 5 blanks and Forster in GW36.

                                  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.

                                    What's he done recently? Not convinced he's a starter personally.

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

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

                                Security of games says b) guaranteed 4 games in 2. A) guaranteed 2 maybe 3.

                                Who is better asset until end of season - not just this week?

                                Shaw or Maguire?

                                    I'd say Shaw

                                2. Blue Moon Rising

                                  Maguire to rise tonight?

                                  1. 2OLEgend

                                      doubt it

                                    Worth playing BB chip when subs are only:
                                    Areola, Reguillon, Cresswell, and Adams.

                                    Not sure if it'll get better from here...

                                      Weak. Try and build for decent bench upto 38 even.

                                    anyone going for Dean Henderson?

                                    Maguire or Shaw?

                                    Down to 2 choices I think:

                                    2.1m ITB 1FT

                                    1. Son > Bruno (c)
                                    2. Rudiger > Digne (captain Greenwood/Salah)

                                    Option 2 gives me a much nicer team in GW36 and I always fancy defenders in a DGW... or am I overthinking not going Son > Bruno considering I can do it with 0.1 ITB?

                                    Anything I’m missing? Thoughts?

                                    Additional question:

                                    Would you start Leno or Forster?

                                      2 if chasing. 1 if not

                                        I’m 59K so does that count as chasing or not?

                                    how likely is holding to play both games?

                                      Depends if Luiz is fit but he seems to be the only one who can play RCB at the moment

                                    Forgetting about GW36 and onwards what scores most this gameweek ?

                                    A) Kane (lee)

                                    Hey guys. 1FT 0.3 ITB here - what looks best? No chips left 🙂

                                    A) Vydra Son Coady to DCL Greenwood Coufal/other 4.8 (-8)
                                    B) Vydra Son to Watkins Greenwood (or Zaha/someone else) (-4)
                                    C) Vydra Lingard to DCL JWP (-4)

                                    Martinez (Forster)
                                    TAA Shaw Rudiger (Coady Johnson)
                                    Bruno(c) Salah Son Jota Lingard
                                    Kane Iheanacho (Vydra)

                                    Sadly the defender move is needed to find 0.1 in A... Lingard would be benched in A/B

                                      B probably. Would appreciate some thoughts on mine below

                                    On FH, to go with Salah, Bruno, Greenwood.

                                    A) Auba Mount
                                    B) Mane JWP

                                        B out of those two

                                        B but without JWP. Prefer El Ghazi instead as he can actually score away from the pen spot.

                                      A. Vardy or B. Mane as a differential heavy?

                                      How’s this looking for my bench boost- played wildcard last week.

                                      Guita Martinez
                                      Azpilicueta James Digne Shaw Castagne
                                      Maddison Bruno(c) Greenwood Saka Zaha
                                      Kane Ieanacho Calvert

                                      Have 1 free transfer and free hit next week aswell so I may aswell use the transfer. Appreciate any advice on improvements

                                        Saka -> JWP perhaps ? Otherwise looks good

                                        No pool players in a DGW is scary.

                                      Who would you play, Kane or Madders

                                        You can’t be serious ?

                                          I’ve got DGW and TGW coming out of my ears. Next GW going to be a big problem. Even thinking Madders to Jota to get one more playing next week.

                                      Right-o,

                                      Son, Davis, Rudi -> Zaha, DCL, Ayling -8

                                      Now to decide on Martinez/Forster

                                      Cavani or Zaha ?
