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)

    How do these transfers look? Planning to BB this week

    Coady -> Ward / Phillips
    Brewster -> Benteke

    Mendy Forster
    TAA Holding Konsa Ward / Phillips (Dallas)
    Bruno Salah (C) Lingard Son Periera
    Benteke Nacho Kane

    10 DGW -4

      Decent

    These are some 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)

    2. The Red Devil
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Not sure Cavani starts 2 games in 2 days (Europa & Villa)

  3. Feedtheyak
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    Start Reguilon or Rudiger?

    1. HammersXI
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Rudiger

  4. arkom
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    Is it madness to go with Rashford instead of Bruno?

    It would allow other transfers better (£££) ...

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

      Yes

    2. HammersXI
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Yes, he doesn't look to have that sharpness and he has been nursing an injury. Would rather go Greenwood.

      TY guys

  5. GE

    Morning Legends,

    I have problem with defence and no tgw cover:

    Martinez,(Johnstones)
    Vestergard Veltman Rudiger, (Maith-Nills, El Mohamady)
    Son JWP, Salah, Jota, (Lingard)
    Kane, Nacho, Vadri

    any extra move will cost me hit, as i took jwp early this week (no chips left , 1.3m itb)

    A) Nills, Son, Ling, Kane -> Digne, Bruno, Zaha,DCL (Jota benched)
    B) Nills, Son, Kane -> Digne, Bruno, DCL (Lingard benched)
    C) Son & Nills -> Greenwood & TAA
    D) stay as it is or anything else

    Any potential max. 5£ midfielder??

    I would like to do Son & Rapinha --> Bruno & 5£
    McTominay doesn’t fit because they won’t have a game next week.

    1. kusasi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      McTominay at 4.9M maybe?

      1. kusasi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 18 days ago

        Whoops didn’t see second half! Maybe Jorginho and hope for Chelsea pens?

  11. kusasi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    Which keeper for this week - Mendy or Martinez?

    1. big_cliff
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Similar dilemma for me. Can't decide

  12. Pukki Party
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    Luke Shaw is my captain this week

    1. jia you (The No BS League -…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      I'm going Cavani which feels an even bigger punt!

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

        Don’t do cavani captain! He will only start 1 of the next 3..

  13. Rik Waller
    • 4 Years

    What does this mean? (about Maguire)

    "Since the Red Devils resumed European competitions, the centre-back has played every available Premier League minute from Gameweek 24 to Gameweek 25."

    1. rainy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      He's played every Premier League game this season...

  14. hjc13
    4 months, 18 days ago

    What we think of this free hit team ?

    Guaita
    Shaw digne TAA
    Salah Bruno JWP Mount
    Kane nacho DCL

    In two minds to keep Kane cover or swap for Watkins

    JWP and mount could be swapped for greenwood and any suggestions

    1. waldo666
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      I'd definitely have Greenwood over JWP.

      1. hjc13
        4 months, 18 days ago

        Cheers ! Yea just he hope he gets plenty of minutes

    which two should i pick below? (can only afford either Greenwood or Zaha)?

    Ward-Prowse, Jota, Sigurdsson, Greenwood/Zaha

  17. BusbySwede
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    What do you think?
    Vardy, Pereira, Coady -> DCL, Zaha/Greenwood, Maguire for a -4 hit? And which one of Zaha/Greenwood?

    Mendy, Forster
    TAA, Holding, Azpi, Lowton, Maguire
    Salah, Son, Lingard, Jota, Zaha/Greenwood
    DCL, Kane, Iheanacho

    The big worry is ofcourse no Bruno..

  18. Sanchit
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    Kane to Vardy/DCL for a hit?
    Will play FH next week

  19. aaronmetcalfe

    Thoughts on a -8 to swap
    Kane and Son for Salah and DCL?

  20. aaronmetcalfe
    4 months, 18 days ago

    Thoughts on a -4 to swap:
    Azpilicueta for Shaw?

  21. Bobby's Teeth
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    Just for this GW (I am on FH) - play one:

    1. Vardy (already have Nacho)
    2. DCL

  22. Chimwe Chikomba Tasa
    • 9 Years

    Start one:

    - Pereira (ARS away)
    - Bamford (TOT home)
    - Dunk (WOL away)

  24. revelc

    cavani + AWB for -8?

    1. Chilli Heatwave
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Yes

  25. AF90
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    On a bench boost, would you transfer out Mee or Mitchell for a Man Utd defender?

  26. Bobby's Teeth
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    Dear Aston Villa legends,

    Any idea whether El Ghazi plays both? Planning to take him over Zaha - thoughts please?

    1. Chilli Heatwave
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Quite likely he will but not the whole game

  27. AF90
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    A) Son -> Rashford
    B) Mitchell -> Lindelof
    C) Mee -> Lindelof/Wan Bissaka

    1. Chilli Heatwave
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      C

  28. Chilli Heatwave
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    Play one
    Targett vs United and Everton
    Or Kane vs Leeds
    Or Lingard vs Everton

  29. Blue Moon Rising
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    Maguire and Greenwood still solid choices?

    1. Boss Hogg
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      I think they are both guaranteed 2 starts. Maguire probably starts all 3 and Greenwood probably comes off the bench if he doesn't start.

    How are you guys getting together a decent team next week with 3 MU players. I am struggling with two.
    Worth brining in Bruno for Greenwood? Have to swap Mendy for Meslier for cash.
    Will hamper me financially going forward.
