Scout Squad

The Scout Squad’s best FPL players for Gameweek 38

Fantasy Football Scout contributors David, Andy, Tom and Neale assemble for the final time this season to pick out their favoured Fantasy Premier League players for the upcoming Gameweek.

Our weekly Scout Squad feature always takes the form of a ‘Free Hit’-type selection and there’ll be plenty of FPL managers looking for a Hail Mary punt ahead of Sunday’s deadline, with this round of matches offering one final chance for us to improve our ranks or claw back mini-league deficits.

All of our panelists have put forward an 18-man long-list of Fantasy assets and will explain their notable inclusions and omissions below.

The players listed will then be narrowed down to a squad of 15 (with the starting XI not exceeding a total cost of £83.0m) for the weekly Scout Picks selection ahead of the deadline at 14:30 BST on Sunday.

Each writer must meet the following requirements:

  • At least one goalkeeper costing £5.0m or less
  • At least one sub-£5.0m defender
  • At least one midfielder listed at £6.5m or below
  • At least one forward priced at £7.5m or lower
  • No more than three players from the same club

DAVID SAID

Goalkeepers are hard to choose for Gameweek 38 so I’ve gone with Martin Dubravka ahead of Newcastle’s trip to Craven Cottage considering that Fulham have failed to find the net in three of their last four home matches.

Meanwhile, Jordan Pickford has produced 4.2 saves per game in meetings with top-six sides this season, so I’ve included him in the expectation of a few scant additional points.

With very few goalkeepers offering strong clean sheet potential in Gameweek 38, the same is true of defenders, so I have mostly included those I believe can get attacking returns.

Trent Alexander-Arnold is an obvious option considering that his total of three assists across his last six is the most among defenders. Unsurprisingly, the Liverpool right-back is also top of that category for expected assists (xA) across the same period. Andrew Robertson‘s xA score of 0.88 is also the sixth-best among defenders over their last half-dozen run-outs.

I was torn between Aaron Cresswell and Vladimir Coufal but went with the latter considering he is usually the more effective West Ham defender at home in terms of attacking returns. The Czech Republic international has four Premier League assists at the London Stadium this season, compared to two for Cresswell. Meanwhile, the Englishman has registered just one touch inside the box at home in 2020/21, while Coufal has 17 to his name.

Mohamed Salah and Harry Kane both have a Golden Boot award to chase, each one on 22 goals for the season thus far. The Egyptian has produced 19 shots in the box over his last six, the second-most in the league, while I think Kane can capitalise on Leicester’s need to go gung-ho for Champions League football on Sunday.

That is why I have also included Son Heung-min in my selection while I should also note that Christian Benteke is one of only two players with more shots in the box than Salah over the last six. He also leads the league for shots on target over the same period, producing goals in each of his last four and, in Gameweek 38, he – fitness permitting – faces a Liverpool defence that has conceded more big chances than any other Premier League side.

Joe Willock‘s form is looking sustainable still as he added a sixth goal in as many games against Sheffield United. With Fulham coming up on the final day, the fact he is third in the Premier League for minutes per expected goal involvement (xGI) bodes well.

Finally, I want to throw my weight behind Leeds’ attack for a meeting with West Bromwich Albion. This will be the Whites’ first Premier League game to feature fans at Elland Road for 16 years and that alone might be enough to suggest a big win.

But let us also consider that they are joint-top of the form table over the last nine matches (20 points from six wins, two draws and one defeat) and West Brom have the worst expected goals conceded (xGC) over the last six. For that reason, I am including RaphinhaPatrick Bamford and Rodrigo in my Scout Squad selection.

NEALE SAID

Double-ups or more on Liverpool, Leeds United and West Ham United are fairly self-explanatory, so I’ll instead focus on less-predictable selections elsewhere.

Starting at the back, I’ve plumped for two goalkeepers whose sides have very little defensive form at all.

Fulham haven’t kept a clean sheet since Gameweek 27 but with a gung-ho Newcastle potentially missing the first three players in line for striking spots (Callum Wilson, Allan Saint-Maximin and Joelinton) and with Joe Willock “fatigued” after his heroics over the last month, Alphonse Areola could enjoy one final shut-out before the Cottagers drop to the Championship – providing Scott Parker doesn’t follow in the footsteps of many of his peers and hand a start to a back-up custodian.

A reserve shot-stopper could indeed well be between the posts in west London, as I’d be surprised if Newcastle risk aggravating Martin Dubravka’s niggling hamstring with Euro 2020 coming up. Enter Mark Gillespie, who could be facing a Fulham attack who have scored just twice in their last eight home matches.

Wolverhampton Wanderers just keep conceding goals from set plays so I’m immediately drawn to dead-ball specialist Alex Telles for a presumably under-strength Manchester United’s trip to Molineux, with Wolves’ struggle for goals (seven in their last ten) also an incentive.

Calum Chambers and Arsenal will be facing a Brighton attacked blunted by the unavailability of Danny Welbeck and Neal Maupay, meanwhile. Presuming he gets the nod at right-back with Hector Bellerin out and Cedric Soares peripheral, Chambers also carries a threat going in the opposite direction: he has had seven shots and 10 penalty box touches in his last six appearances, two of which were as a substitute.

Sheffield United’s recent tendency to concede a lot headed opportunities (Willock’s goal and Jonjo Shelvey’s big chance in midweek the tip of the iceberg) surely plays into the hands of James Tarkowski and Chris Wood, while Dominic Calvert-Lewin may have some unexpected joy at the Etihad, as Manchester City have conceded exactly two goals in each of their last four home games – and shipped six in total at Brighton and Newcastle in the last two Gameweeks.

I’ve selected Kevin De Bruyne as a last-week punt. City’s line-ups are a bit of a crapshoot and perhaps they are best avoided in Gameweek 38, but would Pep Guardiola allow his star Belgian to go into a Champions League final off the back of a 25-day stretch without any game-time? The former Barcelona boss has, remarkably, done this before, but has more recently talked up the importance of “rhythm”.

Finally, I’ve opted for Said Benrahma over the plethora of other West Ham midfielders. The unpredictable Algerian has spent a lot of time on the right flank over the last two Gameweeks and it was from this position that he assisted against West Brom. If stationed there on Sunday, he’ll be up against a Southampton side who have conceded the second-highest number of chances from their left flank over the last six games – a period that coincides with Ryan Bertrand’s unavailability and the deployment of centre-halves at left-back.

TOM SAID…

Edouard Mendy is my first-choice goalkeeper in Gameweek 38. 

Despite conceding in each of their last three Premier League matches, Chelsea have kept 18 clean sheets in 28 attempts under Thomas Tuchel, and with a strong line-up assured look like one of the better teams to target from a defensive perspective.

I’ve also selected Alphonse Areola, mainly due to Newcastle United’s mounting injury list in attack, and Bernd Leno.

In defence, Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold is my top pick. The in-form right-back has been one of the Reds’ standout performers in recent weeks, creating 21 chances in his last six matches, at least two more than any other Premier League player.

Elsewhere, amongst defenders, only Aaron Cresswell and Lucas Digne have a higher number of assists than Vladimír Coufal this season, an impressive achievement considering he doesn’t take set-pieces. He is still in search of his first goal but continues to threaten going forward, as shown by him hitting the post against Everton in Gameweek 35.

Stuart Dallas, Matthew Lowton and Kieran Tierney complete the picks at the back.

Further forward, the inclusion of Liverpool and Leeds United’s attacking players largely speak for themselves, so I’ll dedicate a bit more time to a few of my other selections.

West Ham United’s chances of a top-four finish are gone but European football next season remains very much on the table, and I’m tipping them to finish strongly against Southampton. Jesse Lingard’s goals have dried up across the past five games but he remains one of their key attackers, while Michail Antonio has performed well on the road this season having been directly involved in nine goals. He may be on penalties, too, following Declan Rice’s midweek miss.

Meanwhile, for a fourth consecutive season, Chris Wood is into double figures for Premier League goals. The New Zealander boasts 11 attacking returns since Gameweek 27, and takes on a Sheffield United side who have kept just three clean sheets at home all season.  

The offensive list is completed by Mason Mount, plus forwards Harry Kane and Kelechi Iheanacho, who face off against each other in what I’m anticipating will be an open game.

ANDY SAID

As usual, it’s difficult to pick a Manchester City player without worrying about rotation. But after a very brief appearance against Brighton in Gameweek 37, I’m backing Ferran Torres to get another run-out. If Kevin De Bruyne is still not fully fit, I think Pep Guardiola may want to see Torres play in the number nine role again. He’s managed 0.44 expected goal involvements (xGI) per 90 minutes this season, which is higher than Phil Foden (0.39).

I’m backing Leeds v West Brom to be one of the ‘famous’ Gameweek 38 goal-fests. Leeds are fourth for total expected goals (xG) from open play this season, only behind Liverpool, Man City and Man United. The narrative is there: it’s the first Premier League game in front of home fans for the best part of two decades, so they’re going to want to put on a show. Patrick Bamford reminded us last week why we shouldn’t write him off yet, and the Whites are facing the team who have conceded the most expected goals this season so far. Raphinha has to be the second attacker, with five shots in the box and 13 chances created over his last six matches.

Kelechi Iheanacho (4.42) and Michail Antonio (4.36) are the top two forwards for expected goal involvement over the last six matches. Between them, they had 30 shots in that same time period. Antonio certainly has the easier game but Leicester may need to score a lot of goals against Spurs in order to get into the Champions League spots and I’m not sure Brendan Rodgers will leave Iheanacho out of the starting line-up again.

      Good luck mate!

  3. Sterling Archer
    • 4 Years

    Raphinha captain, feels less risky when everyone plays at the same time!

    1. Ohh1454
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      tempted but he hasn’t been overly explosive

  4. Hooky
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Amazing how Bamford has gone from people thinking he could be dropped before the last GW to one of the best picks of this GW.

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      opposition ? last home game and with fans ?

  5. artvandelay316
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Who's the better option as first bench for midfield? Pepe or Torres? I have Bruno and Greenwood as possible no shows.

    Cheers.

    1. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Gotta imagine Aguero plays some part this weekend so might affect Torres' game time

      1. Milkman Bruno
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Hope not

      2. artvandelay316
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Yes good point, thanks. I think I might go a completely different direction and get Willock. He's much more likely to play, and is on good form.

  6. Pep Roulette
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Play one

    A. Areola
    B. Martinez

    1. Milkman Bruno
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Don’t see a cs for either so Martinez for them saves

    2. FPL Pillars
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Nipples

    3. Athletico Underachieving
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Same dilemma...tempted by Areola if St Max is out

  7. Cheeto__Bandito
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Trossard (ars)
    Watkins (CHE)
    Antonio (SOU) -4
    Raphinha (WBA) -4

    Who scores most?

    1. Milkman Bruno
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Antonio

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      2 6 9(-4) 10(-4)

      1. Ibralicious
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Very nice prediction. So it would take a semi-haul to give better value than Watkins on a freebie then.

  8. Jon Snow
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Mendy, Forster
    TAA, Dallas, Shaw, Holding, Mitchell
    Salah, ASM, Greenwood, Lingard, Raphinha
    Kane, DCL, Davis

    ASM punt failed, 10pts behind in my ML and 1FT. Rival has Bamford/Antonio over DCL/Davis
    Any ideas?

    A) ASM >>> Mane
    B) DCL >>> Firmino
    C) Other

    1. Milkman Bruno
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Can you afford the two moves?

      1. Jon Snow
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        2 moves and a -4 would leave me a 15 points deficit which is still doable i think. All or nothing

        1. Milkman Bruno
          4 months, 7 days ago

          Shaw and Greenwood are issues also mind

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

      I wouldn't lose DCL unless you get some certainty on Shaw and Greenwood playing.

  9. Milkman Bruno
    4 months, 7 days ago

    😆 Bench one of my front 8:

    Salah, Manè, Torres, Lingard, Raphina
    Kane, Antonio, Wood

    1. Milkman Bruno
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Or don’t sell Bruno to Manè for a hit and play the other 7

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

        Mane for a hit? Brave.

        1. Milkman Bruno
          4 months, 7 days ago

          No I have not made the transfer yet. I was thinking of doing Shaw to Coufal for free. Bruno to Manè then for a hit is tempting but I have the benching headache above if I do it. Think I answered my own question

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

            I think you did.

            I'd punt on Bruno to Mane for free AND if Bruno was confirmed not starting. But Mane has not shown anything like the kind of form that would make that pay off.

            1. Milkman Bruno
              4 months, 7 days ago

              I can’t afford Bruno to Manè for free without the Shaw move though. I am 10 points behind my ML rival and if I bench the points that could have won me the league I will be livid!

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

                Sorry, point I was making was that I wouldn't do it for a hit.

                If you're defending a 10 point lead, where are the differentials?

                1. Milkman Bruno
                  4 months, 7 days ago

                  I am chasing a 10point gap! Not sure what moves he will make but this is his team from gw37:

                  Ederson, Patricio
                  Phillips, Dier, Lindleof, Mitchell, Struijk
                  Salah, Rashford, JWP, Zaha, Soucek
                  Kane, Bamford, DCL

                  My team:

                  Mendy*
                  Trent*, Dallas*, Shaw(Coufal)*
                  Salah, Raphina*, Torres*, Lingard*,
                  Kane, Antonio*, Wood*

                  Martinez, Bruno, Mitchell, Struijk

                  So I have plenty of differentials

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

                    Sorry, misread but same applies. That's a pretty differential set up.

                    Shaw to Coufal is solid. I am not convinced Torres plays a lot (as you saw I said above) but wouldn't necessarily take a hit for Bruno to compensate

                    1. Milkman Bruno
                      4 months, 7 days ago

                      Thanks Biggsy. I’m hopeful Torres will either start #9 and push wide if Aguero comes on or they both start

                  2. Dichio24
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 4 Years
                    4 months, 7 days ago

                    Your team looks in much better shape for 38. I might have put my trust in Strujik or a surprise start from Shaw. Defender transfer is so boring on the final day. Sell Bruno and take a punt on someone like Havertz, Pulisic, Aubamayang, Mahrez etc. Then enjoy the benching headache... 😉

            2. artvandelay316
              4 months, 7 days ago

              What are the chances of us finding out about Bruno before the deadline?

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

                Ole was pretty open about rotation before Leicester...

    2. Dichio24
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Starting the final gameweek on -4 with someone like Lingard or Torres on the bench just doesnt sound right

      1. Milkman Bruno
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Agreed see above

        1. Dichio24
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          Could you afford Bruno to Mane, and play another defender than Shaw?

          1. Milkman Bruno
            4 months, 7 days ago

            Unfortunately not and the other two defenders are Mitchell and Struijk

    3. Cheeto__Bandito
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 7 days ago

      use transfer elsewhere

  10. Jimmy Boy
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Bruno, Castagne, Watkins > Ferran Torres, TAA, Werner

    Thinking of going punty with my final 2FT. Worth a -4?

    1. Milkman Bruno
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I like it

      1. Milkman Bruno
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Bobby an option over Werner? Although I like the Werner shout too

        1. Jimmy Boy
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          Actually quite like the Firmino shout, seems like a classic player to score in GW38.

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I get making a punt GW38 but for Werner seems scary to me 😛

      I'd keep Watkins and play him ...

    3. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I thought GW38 was the time to reminisce about the mistakes you made at the start of the season. Not to make them again. No Werner and not for a hit.

  11. wattalowz
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    A) DCL to Bamford (play Bruno)
    B) Bruno to Raphina (play DCL)

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Play Bruno, but who's first on the bench?

      1. wattalowz
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Castagne (spu), so not ideal

        How likely Bruno to get minutes you think?

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          Don't know mate, limited mins if any, logically. Sold him GW36 for Salah ...

    2. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      C.) Do both

    3. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      don’t think we will see much of Bruno this weekend

    Little unsure what to focus on with my 2 transfers. Which two would you look to ship?

    A. Meslier (also have Forster)
    B. Digne (could bench and play TAA, Rudgier and Dallas)
    C. Bruno
    D. DCL

      Can't see Solskjaer risking Bruno

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

        Yeah, but not sure what to do with him. Noticed I can do Bruno and DCL to Son and Firmino for exact cash. Don't fancy Mane.

        1. Milkman Bruno
          4 months, 7 days ago

          I like those moves

    2. dabber7
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Bench Digne and then Bruno to Mane and DCL to Bamford.

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

        Would have to be Wood - already tripled on Leeds unless I lost Meslier

        1. dabber7
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          4 months, 7 days ago

          Prefer Antonio to Wood and also Son looked dreadful last night, although of course Leicester are going to have to come at Spurs, so it could leave space in behind for Son on the counter (if he can actually be bothered that is).

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

            I already have Antonio thankfully.

    3. Milkman Bruno
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Biggsy, I don’t think you need to sell Meslier. Trent, Rudiger, and Dallas is a good defence this week. Would you consider Digne to Robertson for a double up on pool defence and attacking threat? Dcl to Bam/Wood/Antonio to afford if necessary?

      1. Milkman Bruno
        4 months, 7 days ago

        If you done Digne to Robertson I’d bench Rudiger then

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

        Yeah good suggestion. Had crossed my mind as an option

    4. Ibralicious
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Personally, although as individual players I would much rather prefer shipping DCL or Digne, it makes no sense leaving 11.4 in value on your bench on the final week. T

      That's why Bruno -> Mane made a lot more sense than DCL -> x for example. DCL may well score against a week side, but Bruno's 0 will not provide any value no matter his consistency all season.

    5. FantasyManwefwfwfewfew
      4 months, 6 days ago

      Meslier won't play Bielsa has said that

  14. artvandelay316
    4 months, 7 days ago

    I am doing A and D.

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

      Assuming this was a reply to me, DCL & Meslier to Wood & Allison is tempting but means benching Bruno and playing JWP

  15. Fuddled FC
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Which are priority transfers?
    a) Watkins > Bamford
    b) Watkins > Nacho
    c) Digne > Robertson
    d) Forster/Meslier > Mendy
    e) Greenwood > mid sub 8.7m

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

      A or B (or to Antonio or Wood) looks like a good move. C nice too but may not be priority if you can bench Digne. E depends on confidence in him starting. D lowest priority but in a similar position myself and possibly doing it.

    2. Big Al Stankovic
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      A or C

  16. 03farmboy
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Who to transfer out this week?

    I have DCL, Ings, Digne,

    1. No Kane No Gain
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Not ings for sure out of them

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

      Of the three, I'd prefer to lose Digne, but defenders can be easier to bench so maybe DCL to someone else and benching Digne may be better move

    3. Big Al Stankovic
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Dcl, Bamford antonio or wood are the ones i’d look at instead.

  17. Dynamic Duos
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    How is this?

    Leno
    Azpi TAA Dallas
    Salah Mane Mahrez Greenwood
    Iheanacho Bamford Antonio

    Forster Siggy Rudiger Holding

    1. Milkman Bruno
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Decent

  18. Danstoke82
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Hi all

    Chasing in my ML so all of nothing, these moves yay or nay?

    Cavani > Wood
    Son > 11.2 mid (who?) -4

  19. blauriecon
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Based on the watch list

    My GW38 should be

    Leno
    TAA Dallas Dias Phillips Rudiger
    Bruno Raphinha Salah
    DCL Kane
    Forster Lingard Greenwood Vydra
    With 0.3 ITB and 1 FT
    DCL > Bamford/Antonio to start seems to be the best use of the FT
    Any other recommendations?

    1. Honker Muddlefoot
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Like either of those options to come in for DCL. Would you consider Lingard over Dias or Phillips? West Ham looking to secure EL place against leaky Saints defence. City could potentially rotate and have let in some goals recently, and Phillips had limited attacking threat/could concede as Liverpool have given up some chances the past few matches.

  20. Sid07
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Have 2 fts
    1) shaw + Watkins to Dallas + antonio (433)
    2) jota + Watkins to raphina + antonio (343)

    1. Konstaapeli
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Shaw + Jota to Dallas + Raph?

      1. dabber7
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Absolute no brainer.

    2. Big Al Stankovic
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      2 has biggest upside imo.

  21. Messiah Hazard
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Worth getting Bruno for a hit? Or just play Greenwood?

    Greenwood also played last game, so not sure if he will be rotated

    1. Konstaapeli
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Bruno unlikely to start wit EL final days after.

    2. dabber7
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Wouldn't be considering getting Bruno in at all, never mind for a hit mate.

    3. Bunk Moreland
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I’m probably selling Bruno , don’t think he will start

    4. Honker Muddlefoot
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I’d be worried about bringing in any United assets. I’d save the 4 points.

  22. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 7 days ago

    DCL or Nacho out for Bamford?

    1. Konstaapeli
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      DCL. Even citys reserves can spank Everton.

    2. Honker Muddlefoot
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      DCL, for me. Leicester really have to go for it, and Everton attack has been inconsistent.

  23. timawflowers
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    bamford, antonio and son in for dcl, watkins and pogba. 4pt hit yay or nay?

    1. Konstaapeli
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Yep

    2. dabber7
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Maybe just do DCL and Watkins for Bamford and Antonio and don't take the Son hit?

      1. timawflowers
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        could just play pereira instead of son

        1. dabber7
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          4 months, 7 days ago

          Sounds like a plan!

          1. timawflowers
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 7 days ago

            cheers

  24. Ohh1454
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Anyone else going Nacho captain ? Chasing and I need someone who can be explosive with spurs very vulnerable at the back I feel he could haul

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I can see Leicester scoring a few v Spurs

    2. Konstaapeli
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Good option if chasing imo.

      1. Ohh1454
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Ya rivals don’t own him either so it’s my best shout

  25. Daghe Munegu
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    1ft and heading to top 1k
    What would you guys suggest ?

    Mendy
    TAA Holding Digne
    Salah Greenwood Son Lingard Raphina
    Antonio Kane

    Forster DCL Shaw Fofana

    Maybe just DCL to Bamford

    Would leave me enough to upgrade Digne to robbo for a hit
    Is it worth it ?

  26. Honker Muddlefoot
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Mendy
    TAA Dallas ***
    Salah Raphinha Harrison ***
    Wood Antonio Kane

    1 FT, 2.0 ITB
    Bruno > Mane & start Digne/Holding
    OR
    Digne > Robertson & start Lingard?

    1. Konstaapeli
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Mane & Digne

      1. Honker Muddlefoot
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Cheers, mate!

    2. Ohh1454
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      So it boils down basically to holding and mane or Lingard and robbo hmm that’s a very tough one. Mane’s record v palace is brilliant so maybe that edges it but very tight imo

      1. Ohh1454
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Sorry holding or digne

      2. Honker Muddlefoot
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Yeah, it feels tight to me, too. Could see Robertson and Lingard each returning 5-7 points, but Mane does seem potentially explosive in front of a crowd with all to play for. Don’t think Holding or Digne return this week, so that option would just be down to whether Mane can haul. Thanks for the reply!

  27. Stejson
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Time for a full team overhaul. Lots of points to make up, lots clear on the guy behind me. Probably a -20 this week and lets try and pick some winners!

  28. gellinmagellan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Mendy Forster
    Coleman TAA Rudiger Holding Shaw
    Salah Raph Son Lingard Bruno
    DCL Bamford Vydra

    1 FT 3.3 ITB

    A) Vydra > Antonio
    B) Son > Mane
    C) DCL > Vardy
    D) DCL > Antonio, Son > Mane for -4
    E) Bruno > Mane
    F) Vydra > Nacho

  29. FOMFF
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Chilwell starts on Sunday?

    1. Big Al Stankovic
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I’d suppose both city and Chelsea will play their best Xl to get in good rythm for cl.

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Top 4 is still up for grabs. Expect Chelsea to play first strong team which includes Chilwell

  30. Danstoke82
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Hi all, chasing in my ML so going all out possibly with a -4, these moves yay or nay?

    Bruno + Cavani > Mane + Wood -4?
