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.

    I have a really tight lead in both of my money leagues (9 and 5 points). My FT is Bruno > Mane.

    Would you make either of these moves for a hit?

    A) Shaw > Dallas (both rivals have him)
    B) DCL > Bamford (one has him)

    Thanks.

    1. Big Al Stankovic
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Maybe B. It’s all about protection for the ones that will hurt the most.

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Possibly B for a hit

    3. Honker Muddlefoot
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      I worry about taking hits for defenders, so I would either avoid taking the hit altogether or go B. Could see Leeds putting a few past WBA in front of their first home crowd of the season. Good luck!

    4. theroadrunner
      • 4 Years

      B

  2. cheekymonkeytoo
    • 4 Years

    Just 8 points ahead in mini league, other person has * same players, Got 1 FT (perhaps need to go one more for -4).
    Right now have in mind, before transfers this - but over thinking transfers. Dont want to throw this away last game but its tight now.

    Martinez* (Sanchez)
    Dallas*, Phillips*, AA (Shaw, Evans)
    Willock, Salah (c)*, Greenwood*, Son*, Fernandes*
    Nacho, Wood (CLew*)

    Thinking I will ship out CL for Bamford or Antonio (prefer Bamford) - albeit other person has Antonio and Kane (and Lingard)
    And looking at shipping out Fernandes but for who?

    Any views?

      Depends on your situation in your ml. It’s a great time to go big. But each hit will cost more this time, since it’s a one week thing.
      I say C.

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        I'm only 5 points ahead in ML. Rival has Bamford.

          I’d do both. At least you block one of his routes to get more points than you.

          1. Tonyawesome69
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            Yeah good point. What do you think he'll do with his 2FTs? I don't think he'll change his front 3. He'll have to downgrade Jota for funds to upgrade Bruno to Mane or def to Robbo

    3. Honker Muddlefoot
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Protecting a lead, I’d be more tempted to go B as it would give you an extra shield and wouldn’t spot your opponent 4 points, but if you like rolling the dice, C could pay off big.

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        I wish my lead was slightly bigger as it would made the hit an easier decision

      Depends what you want to do. Happy with the rank or push on with differential pick

      Just the Bamford move

  10. BobbyDoesNotLook

    Harrison or Bam?

    1. Tonyawesome69

      Neither

  12. Danstoke82
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Am tempted to play Lingard over Son this game week. Spurs look shot. Is it crazy to bench Son? Lingard has more to play for surely?

    1. Big Al Stankovic
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Would play both. Must surely have another to bench?

      1. Danstoke82
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Leaves me with a choice of benching one of the following; Salah, Harrison, Kane, Antonio or Cavani?

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Bench Cavani. He won't start

          1. Danstoke82
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            Rested for CL final?

            1. Danstoke82
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 10 days ago

              Europa actually was what I meant!

                • 2 Years
                2 months, 10 days ago

                Exactly. Played the last league game and Europa final is 3 days after so expect a rest for Cavani

            2. AC/DC AFC
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 10 days ago

              Europa 3 days later

        2. Big Al Stankovic
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Can’t see Cavani getting any minutes. So there’s your answer.

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Nope, Son has been poor in the last 2. I would play Lingard over Son

    3. Jeremy Corbyn
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Play both

  13. BobbyDoesNotLook
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Difficult times what to do with Kane, Son and Iheanacho. Currently all in XI.

    Would you swap Kane or Nacho to Bam? Or Son/Lingard to someone such as Harrison?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      I would only lose Son out of those 3

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam

        This

    2. Jeremy Corbyn

      Keep

  14. Igz08

    2 months, 10 days ago

    16 points clear in my ML. 0.1 short of Bruno -> Mane. Rival doesn’t have Salah or Mane but will bring Mane in this week I imagine

    Martínez
    TAA Dallas Ayling
    Bale Raph JLingz Salah
    Kane Nacho
    Forster Bruno Shaw Coady

    A) Salah -> Mane ©
    B) take a hit and bench DCL
    C) DCL -> Antonio

    1. Jeremy Corbyn

      C

    3. BeWater
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 10 days ago

      C by absolute miles.

    4. Igz08
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Ta lads. Could do Bruno -> Torres too?

  15. Netters2018
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Would you do DCL to Antonio for -4 or just play DCL?

    1. BeWater
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Just play DCL.

    2. Big Al Stankovic
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Just play dcl.
      But if you’re chasing and antonio is s differential, I’d be more tempted to do it for a hit.

      1. Netters2018
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Im 10 pts behind ml leader... he has dcl but i think he will move him on for antonio this week.

        1. Netters2018
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          But he may not! Surely antonio scores 1 or 2? I dont see dcl getting anything against city

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

            Go for it. You need differentials

            1. Big Al Stankovic
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 10 days ago

              Agreed. You need to gain some points somewhere.

  16. Tinmen

    2 months, 10 days ago

    Guys which option. Can’t make my mind up

    A) Son and Mahrez to Ferran and Mane

    B) Kane and Mahrez to Bamford and Mane

    1. Big Al Stankovic
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Wouldn’t sell Kane or Mahrez. Both could potentially get big scores.

      1. Tinmen
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Mahrez played 90 the other day. He’s benched I think

        1. Big Al Stankovic
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Last chance to match his best XI before the CL final.

          1. Slouch87
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            Can't see him doing that having played a few days previously. I expect KDB to get pitch time and Torres to start. Other than that no idea.

            1. Big Al Stankovic
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 10 days ago

              Aguero on for some minutes surely. Only pep knows.

              1. Slouch87
                • 5 Years
                2 months, 10 days ago

                If fit yes.

  17. Ibralicious
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Which move is best for the final day?

    A) Bruno -> Mane
    B) Son -> Aubameyang
    C) DCL -> Antonio

    Cheers!

    1. jernej93
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      DCL to Antonio or even Bamford or Wood 🙂

    2. Big Al Stankovic
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      A or C.
      At least dcl will start.

      1. Ibralicious
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Cheers mate

    3. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      A or C

      1. Ibralicious
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Thanks, leaning A

  18. jernej93
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    1.) Son -> Mane
    2.) Son -> Greenwood
    3.) Davis -> Ihenacho/Rodrigo
    4.) Kane -> Bamford
    5.) Dallas -> Robbo

    Defending 38 points ML lead, my chaser has Bamford and Robbo that I don't have 🙂

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Don't worry about your rival with that lead. Son to Mane

    2. Big Al Stankovic
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      1. nobrainer.

  19. drughi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Son and Bale > Raphinha and mane for a -8 ?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      No

    2. BeWater
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 10 days ago

      I wouldn't do that. I think there will be goals in the Leicester game.

    3. Garth Marenghi
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      No for me

    4. drughi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      cheers all

  20. JAYPEE
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Thoughts on team and should I trade? 1 FT and 1.5 ITB

    Mendy Forster
    Dias Shaw Phillips Strujik Coady
    Salah Bruno Son Raphinha Lingard
    Kane Bamford Wood

    Was thinking of doing Son to Mane and Coady to Mitchell for a -4 I need a good differential to catch 2nd in my ML

    If not I’ll do Coady to Dallas or Cresswell or Shaw to TAA

    What are your thoughts?

    1. Big Al Stankovic
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Bruno to Mane.

      Or Shaw to TAA.

  21. Big Al Stankovic
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Which is the prioritized move?

    Bruno to Mane?
    Or
    Digne to Robbo?

    1. Danstoke82
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      I’m tempted with Bruno > Mane

  22. roghippo
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Bale to Mane for a hit worth it?

    Cheers

    1. Big Al Stankovic
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Probably.

    2. Garth Marenghi
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      yes

  23. Danstoke82
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Know it’s a difficult answer but are either of these two a good shout for the weekend considering pep roulette?

    A) Mahrez
    B) Ferran Torres

    1. Big Al Stankovic
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Both great shouts, but Pep...

    2. Garth Marenghi
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      b. Think he gets the start. But it's pep, so.

      1. Danstoke82
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        My thinking too as he didn’t start the last match and there’s no way Mahrez isn’t starting that CL final surely

        1. Garth Marenghi
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Right, he got pulled early with the cancelo red, and yeah don't think Torres starts the cl final. *but it's still pep*

  24. estheblessed
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    40 points behind leader! I think I've finally got to admit it's over!

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Neveeerrrrrr

  25. Netters2018
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Who scores the most in order this week...

    A) Bamford
    B) nacho
    C) Antonio
    D) Wood

    1. Big Al Stankovic
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      CADB

  26. Daghe Munegu
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    My defense is TAA Shaw Digne Holding Fofana

    Would you do Digne to Robbo -4?
    Or Shaw to Dallas -4?

    1. BeWater
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 10 days ago

      I would play TAA, Holding and Shaw and hope that Shaw has an unlikely start. Have Digne ahead of Fofana on the bench.

  27. Tinmen
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Guys, much chance of Mahrez starting this week?

    I’ve sort of written it off in my head

    1. Big Al Stankovic
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Guessing about 50%. His skinny legs keeps him fit.

  28. RedWolf
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Who wins?

    Sanchez
    Lingard
    Raphinha
    Bamford
    Nacho

    Or

    Areola
    Willock
    Mane
    Antonio
    Wood

  29. Tinfoil Deathstar
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Got 2 FT's and 0.0 ITB but a bit stuck what to do this week. Would like to get Mane in but having Phillips as my third Liverpool player makes it tricky to manoeuvre.

    Emi
    Trent - Phillips - Shaw
    Raphinha - Lingard - Bale - Salah (c)
    Kane - Antonio - Wood

    Subs: Fabri; Bruno; Reguillon; Veltman

    Thinking of moving Phillps + Bale + Bruno to Dallas + Torres + Mane for a -4. Although conscious that it would give me a big benching headache. Any one with any better ideas?

    1. Big Al Stankovic
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Bruno and Shaw to mane and Dallas.

      1. Tinfoil Deathstar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Having Phillips as my third Liverpool player is blocking me from doing that. And don't have the funds to move Bruno to Mane with £0.0 ITB either.

        1. Big Al Stankovic
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Bruno and Bale to Mane and Harrison?

          Or maye Shaw to Coufal instead of Bale out.

  30. Hryszko
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Already done DCL > Bamford, still got 1FT & £1.3m in the bank, any other changes worth making here?

    Mendy
    Trent - Coufal - Rudiger
    Son - Salah - Bruno - Lingard - Raphina
    Kane - Bamford

    Bench: Forster - Vydra - Coleman - Veltman

    1. Big Al Stankovic
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Bruno to mane
      Or
      Coleman to Robbo
