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)

    Stopped watching the arsenal game after the first half. Was obvious arsenal wouldnt score

    Passing in their own half all the time when its a must win game.

    Arteta is out of his depth. U cant try to implement a systemm at arsenal that only works with the best players lile the ones at city

    Would you TC (who?) or BB this team for gw35?

    Guita
    Shaw - Fofana - Keane
    Bruno - Salah - Zaha - El Ghazi
    Cavani - Iheanacho - Kane

    (Martinez - Saka - Aina - Ward)
    ...also have 1FT & 0itb

    1. Rog.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    I have 2 transfers available. What happens to them if I use my free hit, will I still have 2 to use next week? Or can i use them and then use FH?

    1. Cilly Bonnolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      You’ll have one.

      1. Cilly Bonnolly
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        And your team will go back to what it was after last gameweek, regardless of the transfers you make.

    On bench boost which combo would you rather have

    A) Guaita, Dinge, Bamford
    B) Guaita, Veltman, DCL
    C) Forster, Dinge, DCL (for a hit)

    Beat defender 4.6m or under? Need one who plays in 36 as well. Thinking Philips or palace?

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years

      Phillips feel like a waste of Pool spot !
      Anyone but him for me....

        • 10 Years

        Not a concern as so few gws to go I don’t think I’ll have space for TAA

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 19 days ago

          In this case He's a no brainer !

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        I don't know. I think he'll start both games. He was in the starting line up for the game that wasn't at Old Trafford and Saints have a big aerial threat so would imagine Klopp would want him playing that as well.

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 19 days ago

          Fair enough. I'm completely out of loop so I'm taking this 🙂

    Ole is a nutter

    84 mins for Bruno with a 4 goal lead and on the eve of 3 league games in 5 days

    1. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Bruno seems the sort who just plays no matter what. Never seems to be injured either

    2. Bob_the_builder

      He knows that Bruno is indestructible so he can play him all he wants 😛

      3 friendlies, and that's if the fans even let them go ahead.

    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    Worth doing this tonight or wait? Annoyingly could be priced out with all the changes.

    Lingard+Coady >> Greenwood+Ward (-4)?

    Bench boost;
    Mendy
    TAA. Shaw. Rudiger. Holding
    Salah. Bruno. Jota
    Kane. DCL. Nacho
    (Forster, ASM, Lingard, Coady)

  15. The White Pele
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    best option:
    A) Maguire & Watkins
    B) Rudiger & DCL

    1. Eastman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      A

    2. AlternativeB
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 19 days ago

      DCL for fixtures. Maguire safer than Rudiger

  16. Vovhund
    • 3 Years

  25. Punty McPuntface
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    I've confused myself here.

    When on a FH the players I transfer out come back next week without losing the value I've accumulated for them yeah?

    So kane out at 11.7 would come back in at that value on gw 36

    1. Punty McPuntface
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      I decided to read the rule book...

      No gains from price changes

      Managers cannot benefit from any price changes gained from their new Free Hit squad.

      However, price changes applied to their previous line-up will take effect on their return once the chip expires.

      So if a player has suffered a price drop while your Free Hit chip was active, you will have lost value on that player. 

  26. andrewrichter
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    What happens if I use my free transfers before using Free Hit chip, does it revert to team after use of free transfers or before? If I choose to save transfers, do I only have 1 after using FH chip?

    1. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      before

      1. bitm2007
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Think Arteta may get sacked soon. Max 3 games left.

    Sarri is the perfect replacement imo
