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

    A. Alonso to Digne for -4 (Already on a -4)

    B. Play Targett in GW35, Dunk in GW36 & Alonso in GW37(Targett backup)

    1. Stupendous
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Don't get the Digne love myself but he burnt me too many times sadly that's probably why.

      I'm done with Everton this year full stop I think

      B for me easy

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

      2. OleBall
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 29 days ago

        9 assists for a defender ain't bad ig

  2. Stupendous
    • 8 Years

      Yes

  3. Corona is not good 4 U
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Is this bench boost team good to go? Or would you transfer out one?

    Guaita, Martinez
    Konsa, Ward, Coleman, Alexander-Arnold, Castagne
    Fernandes, Greenwood, Salah, Saka, Lingard
    Vardy, Iheanacho, Watkins

    Thank you!

    1. Lav

  4. Luton_Fan
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Has price rises happened yet?

    1. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      in about 10 mins

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

    Play Bale or Lingard?

    1. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Bale on current form

  6. Scholes Out Forever
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Am I crazy that I'm leaning towards going Greenwood + Rashford instead of Greenwood + ManU defender? Cant get Bruno as it would require a -8

    Not particularly inspired by any of the options in that United defence in terms of CS potential and reotation, and at least Rashy only played 15 against Roma

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

      Yes, absolute shout.

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

        So no you are not crazy.

    2. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Not crazy
      Can't see a CS so you are getting 4-6 points probably for a MUN defender and maybe an assist for Shaw/AWB

    3. Azzy
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      I would -8 to get Bruno in

      1. Scholes Out Forever
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        another -4 later in GW36. Its a no go for me

    4. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Cheers lads, pulled the trigger on Son to Rashy to avoid the price drop! Have exact money for Nacho to Antonio next GW so had to do it

  7. Luton_Fan
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Who would u prefer this gw. Rudiger or holding?

    1. Freshy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Rudiger

      1. Freshy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Still have 4th place to lockup

    2. Azzy
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Rudiger

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

      do you expect rudi to play both though?

      1. Freshy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        CHE got to win

    4. ALegendJ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Rudiger

  8. Lav
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Would you BB with this bench on a -4?

    Forster, Lingard, Ayling, Struijk. (dont ask me how I have ended up with two Leeds defenders)

    1. Azzy
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      I wouldn’t use it this week personally with that bench

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

        Yeah, think I will just hold and unleash it on the final week.

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

    So I'm playing BB and for -8 I plan to do:
    Dunk --> Maguire
    Son --> Greenwood
    Bowen --> JWP
    Is this madness?

    1. Azzy
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      3 games vs a potential 8
      I would

    2. OptimusBlack
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Not at all do it

  10. whitepool
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Who to play? Konsa (2 fixtures but probably 4 points, but covers a Martinez CS) or Wood (playing Fulham and who is highest scoring FPL player last 6 GWs). Tough one.

    1. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Wood

  11. Corona is not good 4 U
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Is it any player worth transferring Lindgard out for free?

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

      Do you have extra funds? If so Greenwood would be my choice.

      1. Corona is not good 4 U
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 29 days ago

        I already have Greenwood.

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

  12. SomeoneKnows
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Tied in a cash league in first place. All the others have Shaw while I don't have any Man United defenders

    1. Alisson WondHaaland
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

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

        Prolly DCL

        1. Thomas Magnum
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

        does look decent though
        all eyes on the spurs v leeds fixture

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

          Had to bring in Greenwood
          That screwed up my Salah plan

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

            Don't get Greenwood over Salah

            Mo will get 3 matches in the next 2 weeks including 2 juicy ones. Greenwood will very probably get 2 only one of which is good.

      2 months, 29 days ago

      Which of these would you choose?
      1. Salah -> Fernandes (c). (Safe option- but not really feeling it).
      2. Son-> Rashford. (Rash not playing last night increases his appeal).
      3. Son + Kane -> Fernandes (c) + DCL (-4). Problem with this is I will be without Spurs for the weeks ahead and kind of stuck with 3 cheap strikers.

      Martinez.
      Shaw, TAA, Digne.
      Salah, Jota, Greenwood, Son,
      Watkins, Ihaenacho, Kane.
      Steer, Lingard, Dallas, Burn.

      Need to use 1 FT and get a cheap defender that plays in 36 as well. Who should I get for Holding?

      A) Phillips
      B) Mitchell

        A

      Currently sitting on a strong DGW squad with 2FTs, however my only united player is Shaw.

      Also as of now I only have 7 players for next week.

      Do I....

      A) Use all 3 FTs this week and next week to increase the GW36 player count to 10 (Additions would be Dallas, Lingard/Raphinha, Antonio)
      B) Maddison to Greenwood, then use other 2FT for GW36 to bring player count to 9
      C) Kane + Saka to DCL + Rashford (c), take a hit to get 9 for GW 36

      Squad: 1.9ITB 2FT
      Mendy
      TAA Shaw Fofana
      Saka Maddison Jota Salah
      Kane Nacho Watkins

      Forster Son Rudiger Holding

      Bench boost gtg?

      Martinez (Johnstone)
      Rudiger - Maguire - digne - struijk
      Jota - Bruno - Maddison - zaha - greenwood
      Nacho - Watkins - Kane

      This is after I confirm for -4
      Ricardo > Maguire
      Trossard > zaha

      Make sense? Can’t just do zaha as can’t afford

        If you can, I'd also consider Struijk to N. Phillips. (LIV) Not sure Struijk will continue to start now Cooper is back from suspension. I think it's worth another -4 for a good DGW player vs a non starter.

      Ederson to Henderson for -4? Can play Sanchez in 36.

      2FTs
      1) Son, Rudiger > Greenwood, Shaw
      2) Son, Veltman > Greenwood, Shaw

      Notes:
      Rudiger has the DGW, but holding also means I have to find a replacement. If I do these moves, that's at least 5 for me without a fixture in 36.

      Would probably bring back Son in 36, and probably take a hit to replace Rudiger anyway.

      I'm probably overthinking.

      Am I nuts to go without Bruno (have Greenwood and Shaw)? Would have to be Son to Bruno and then I am left with 3 MU in GW 36. Bruno has not been doing great. Also he will probably only play 2 games...such a dilemma.

      24 Pts behind mini leader and don't want to mess it up with taking hits.
      What would you do?

        Get Bruno. Look what he has done in the last 2 Europa games.
