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)

    Using my 2 FT to go dias and lingard to maguire and Greenwood is sensible ?

    Prob get lingard back next week mind. I’m thinking dias obv has Chelsea but also should be given bench time with the final?

    1. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Sounds sensible

    2. Shineonme
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Rather have zaha over greenwood. Can't see greenwood starting 3 games

  2. ZoumasBloomers
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 18 days ago

    For what it’s worth I think people are clamouring too much to get players who might be rested this week at the expense of 11 players in GW36

    1. Bad Kompany
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Any players in particular?

      1. Shineonme
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Greenwood for one. He definitely start all 3 games

        1. No Kane No Gain
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          “Definitely”. Wouldn’t be that confident lol

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Tbf the gap between the DGW games is less than the gap to gw36, so I’d say players are just as likely to be rotated in 36. Fielding 11 is optimistic

    3. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      It's tough! Can't recollect even being a tgw so everyone is excited. I'm torn between taking a hit this gw or doing no transfer at all !

      Ole doesn't rotate much so the likes of Bruno AWB or Maguire should have 3 games

    4. Zladan
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      100% but we like taking risks.

    Best zaha replacement here in case he’s a doubt? Budget 8.9m

      A

  5. seewhyaxe
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 18 days ago

    Are we expecting any more presses before the deadline?

  6. ZoumasBloomers
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 18 days ago

    Benching Lingard over Fofana, Targett, Son and Kane is the right call right?

    1. D.Glynn
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Yeah

    2. Zladan
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      This is why I’m selling Bale as I wouldn’t want to bench him for Holding.

  7. Dybala10
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 18 days ago

    Lingard or Holgate?

  8. Guru Mediation

    • 6 Years
    2 months, 18 days ago

    Who scores more fellas?
    A) Rudiger
    B) Jota

    I suspect Jota may not play very much

    Hello, does FFS post player stats from Europa and CL games on the 'last match' indicator when comparing players (in the members area)?

        I’d only do A if it’s getting you an extra DGwer.

    6. marcos11

        Have 2FTs, need to use atleast one. Where to upgrade?

        Forster
        Philips Rudiger Shaw
        Salah Bruno Mount Son
        Kane Nacho Watkins
        Sanchez Lingard Dias Struijk

        Any help appreciated.

      • Stoic
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        A) Bamford to DCL (-4)
        B) KDB to Salah (-4)
        C) Dias to Shaw (-4)
        Will this -12 work out over the weeks ? No FH or WC.
        Would have playing 11 in GW36 too

      • RamaJama

        • 8 Years

        Who to pick on FH?

        A) Robbo (also have Taa and Salah)
        B) Digne
        C) Castagne

        1. Ohh1454

            • 8 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            Think he’ll play advanced both matches?

        2. big_cliff
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          B or C. I'd try to have both though

      • Fantasy123456
          2 months, 18 days ago

          I asked the question earlier but I’m swapping Maguire for AWB. So...
          If I’m pretty much level with my rival and he has shaw should I go with shaw or should I go for AWB. Who scores more points do we think?

          1. marcos11
              2 months, 18 days ago

              Think Shaw is still the safer bet

            • Ajax Hamsterdam
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 18 days ago

              Too tough to call in terms of players imo so it's up to the strategy you want to adopt

          2. Buck The Trent
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            A or B?

            A Forster, Burn
            B Guaita, Mitchell - 4

          3. Ohh1454
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            Debating wether Vardy and nacho is to much in on FH. Thoughts ?

            1. Ajax Hamsterdam
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 18 days ago

              I'd be tempted. Haven't studied fh but might be tempted to go 352 with DCL and nacho up front

              1. Ohh1454
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 18 days ago

                The only mid I’d change to a 3-5-2 is JWP and I can’t see him out scoring Vardy

            Is it silly to bench Kane for a DGW defender?

            Currently playing Phillips, Digne, Casagne and Shaw with Kane as first sub.

            Leeds have only conceded 10 in their last 11 games, and 3 in their last 7 home games. Hardly encouraging stats for Kane this week.

            1. BaleKaneSon
                2 months, 18 days ago

                I wouldn’t do it Kane just missed out last weekend he will be hungry for goals

              • jimmyharte
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 18 days ago

                Very.

                1. battlecat
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 10 Years
                  2 months, 18 days ago

                  Maybe you have a point.

                  Not 100% convinced as I’m bound to bench the wrong defender now.

            2. BaleKaneSon
                2 months, 18 days ago

                Any news on Zaha being fit?

                      Cheers mate I’ll guess I’ll have to wake up 1am to see lock in these transfers haha

                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 18 days ago

                  I think its not only who gets the minutes, all the rotation will have a negative impact on the games and playing styles, we seen it over xmas when teams played loads of games.

                  2 months, 18 days ago

                  Thoughts on this -8?
                  Kane, Azpi, Holding and Son OUT
                  DCL, TAA, Digne, Rashford IN

                  I would still have 11 players playing next gameweek using my 1FT

                  Martinez
                  Digne TAA Konsa
                  Salah Jota Bruno Greenwood Rash
                  DCL Nacho

                  Subs: Dunk, Bamford, Dallas

                    • 8 Years
                    2 months, 18 days ago

                    Don't thnk Rashford is an option tbh. Am not keen on taking Son and Kane out unless you are putting either 1 of them in next week

                  Which ManU defender for TGW only:
                  A) Shaw - subbed after 45mins yesterday but Telles a decent back-up
                  B) Maguire - played 90mins, like always
                  C) AWB - subbed after 45mins, not much competition at RB
                  ..?

                  2 months, 18 days ago

                  Worth doing Vardy, Son, Veltman > DCL, Rashford, Digne for -4?

                  Gives me 10 DGWers this week and 11 players next week

                  1. Ajax Hamsterdam
                    • 7 Years

                      he will have to go either this week or next week, and i have planned Rashford back to Son for next week. Trying to avoid hit next week

                    Which team would you go forward with, A or B?

                    I have two FTs, so it's a -4 to make three changes to get either of these.

                    These are my comments from yesterday's United match:

                    - Telles and Williams both poor, but due to injury records of Shaw, plus Telles is a 'senior' comparing with Williams, I guess Telles will get the Leicester game, while AWB will likely play all 3.

                    - De Gea has an excellent match, but rarely did the defense play so poor with Henderson in goal, therefore ddg's great performance may actually shadow his poor communication with the defense. Unsure on the nailedness of Henderson for the tgw.

                    - Rashford not looking sharp as a substitute, plus the injury concern, will expect ~180mins in total for the tgw.

                    - Bruno has an OK game, expect ~240mins for the tgw.

                    My prediction on the front 4 rotation: (in terms of starting)
                    Cavani (avl, liv)
                    Rashford (avl, lei)
                    Pogba (avl, liv)
                    Greenwood (lei, liv)
                    Bruno (all)
                    VDB (lei)

                      i seriously doubt Bruno will start all of those, 4 games in 8 days is too much even for him. Probably comes from the bench in either lei or avl game

                      Not quite sure why Ole had to actually play Bruno ytd even with that lead. Still baffles me

                      How did Greenwood look? Brought him in yesterday
                      And what's your prediction for AWB and Maguire starts?

                    Hmmm:
                    A) Zaha and Vardy (own Kelechi)
                    B) Mane and Watkins (own Salah)

                      A

                    El Ghazi, Eze or JWP in place of Pereira for my BB?

                      Do you want a punt or a boring pick?

                      El Ghazi looks tempting

                      1. PaladinVargas

                        2 months, 18 days ago

                        He does. Eze also looks promising if Zaha isn't fit as the onus will be on him to produce something.

                        JWP

                          The safe and probably logical choice. Thanks.
