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)

    Which option looks better please?

    A) Mane, Greenwood & Vydra
    B) Rashford, Vardy & Smith-Rowe

    1. krawiecus
        1 month, 19 days ago

        B for me

    2. Ibralicious
      • 6 Years

      Have Bruno already. Pick one, please.:

      A) Son + Bowen -> Greenwood + Zaha (2FT) (bench Jota)
      B) Son -> Rashford (1FT) (play Jota)

      Cheers!

      Morning people.

      So who's your differentials?

      El Ghazi, Benteke, and Siggy for me. But I am on BB.

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Atm probably zaha, castagne and vardy if they count, salah TC if i stick with him

        1. Mika-eel
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          I see you haven't made up your mind on the TC. I want to join you on the Salah cap, but leading my ML by only 13 pointa and no idea what to do.

          1. Nightcrawler
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            The thinking is that i reckon salah and bruno get similar mins this gw.

            Mathematically, tcing Salah and him doing well has more upside than vice versa. But im leading my ML by 40 odd points so slighlty less cautious

            1. Mika-eel
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              I hope whatever you decide works out for you. Good luck for the upcoming Gameweek!

        Thank god someone else said differentials. Ive gone for El Ghazi, Pogba and James Ward Beckham. Also benteke in the event Kane doesn't play.

        1. Mika-eel
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Wanted to swap out Son for Pogba for a hit but thought against it, would want him back next week.

          All the best!

      GKP: Mendy, Forster
      DEF: Coady, Rudiger, Targett, Holding, TAA
      MID: Salah, Pereira, Son, Jlingz, Jota
      FWD: Kane, Nacho, Vardy

      0.7 ITB with no chips left

      A: Jota, Pereira, Vardy OUT, Fernandes, Zaha, Brewster IN

      B: Jota, Pereira, Vardy OUT, Greenwood, Zaha, DCL IN

      Neither way, a -8 hit is required to be taken for both choices but which 1 is more viable? Thanks.

      1. Avery
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I did B
        Mainly because I have to manage my team the following week

        1. phuang
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          I think so too. I will still have to take -4 points hit to bring in a new GKP and DEF depending on the situation with Forster though.

    5. Lindelol
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Guiata
      TAA, AWB, Castagne
      Salah, Bruno,Greenwood, Zaha
      DCL, Iheanacho Vardy

      1.2 itb (could go Vardy to Kane)

      How is this FH team??

      1. Avery
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        Gtg

      2. Manani
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        looks good

    6. Nightcrawler
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Martinez*

      Maguire** Digne* TAA* Castagne*

      Lingard Salah*(TC) Bruno** Zaha*

      Vardy* Nacho*

      Not entirely sure on zaha yet

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        This would be a -8

    7. Scratch
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Really at a loss as to what to what moves to make this week. Playing bench boost
      2 FTs & £0.3m itb

      Martinez Areola
      Digne, Castagne, Lowton, Rudiger, Vestergaard
      Salah, Bruno, Jota, Lingard, Maddison
      Watkins, Kane, Nacho

      One option Kane & Lowton -> TAA & DCL but Im not keen on ditching Kane, any bright ideas?

      1. krawiecus
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Jota --> Greenwood, roll one? Lowton/Rudiger to someone also very good options. Decent team

          1. Utopsis
            • 1 Year

            I've done exactly this

        If you had to have one for this week:
        A) Saka
        B) Martinelli
        C) Smith Rowe

        1. OleBall
            1 month, 19 days ago

              Hence the 'if you had'. Looking for a 5m midfielder.

                Is it your 8th attacker? If so, ESR and bank the cash

                  Yeah. Trying to squeeze Salah in and make room elsewhere! Thanks bud

                Bench one:

                A) Rudiger (mci/ARS)
                B) Holding (WBA/che)

                    A. If you think all of them start 2, though, then B.

                      We think it depends fully on you, your team and strategy. 35-36 probably best weeks.

                    Zaha or greenwood for -4?!

                    Will be playing aina instead of zaha for gameweek 36 if I went greenwood.

                    I’m chasing.

                              Oh sorry, I understood you have Zaha and are asking about going Zaha--> Greenwood for -4, so I said no. Out of the two Zaha if you think he is fit. Who are you selling?

                                Thanks. Selling gundogan to bench Lingard. Would captain greenwood if I bought him. I’d Captain salah if I went for zaha Instead of greenwood.

                                So confused! Keeping me awake lol

                                    I personally think Salah and Greenwood both set for about 180 mins. Greenwood might go up to like 210. I would only agonize about Zaha's fitness tbh, not about missing out on Greenwood for 3 hard fixtures.

                              If costing you no hits now or future then absolutely, no-brainer.

                              I would. Was 0.1 short for doing the same so went for Greenwood instead.

                              With Son's price drop I should be able to swap him back next week

                              If fit, the next 3 look juicy with 2 of them being a double!

                                ESR played tonight so he only plays 1 game max. That 1 might be Chelsea away too...

                                    1 FT and 0.1 ITB

                                    Had toyed around with potential BB this week but would take a hit or two I reckon so not that keen.

                                    Question now is, what to do here? Almost considering saving so I have two for next week as I currently have 4 players with blanks.

                                        GTG w/o BB. I think you could BB with just one transfer tbh, but might as well aim for 37/38.

                                          Cheers mate, the way I'm leaning now, if Leeds weren't off the boil and missing key players I would have been more comfortable with BB this week.

                                            A) Save so I can field 11 next week
                                            B) Wood > DCL (+ -4 hit next week)

                                                Not much in it. Zaha, but I'd wait as long as possible in case there's fitness news. Never know with him.

                                              Coady > Maguire sound good?
                                              2FT's and 0.8 spare.
                                              Means 5 blanks next week but could then use 2FT's to field 11.

                                              Martinez
                                              Rudiger - Shaw - Coady
                                              Salah - Bruno - Lingard - Son
                                              Kane - Watkins - Iheanacho

                                              Dallas - Reguillon - Perreira

                                                Sounds good.
