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.

    Son to Torres? Or do we think Leicester will go for the win and get caught on the break?

    1. zotter
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Could happen. I would keep son

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam

        Same. Torres might not even play

    2. MidTableFantasy
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Don't trust any City players. I'd keep Son.

  2. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 7 Years

    Cant make up my mind ...
    A Watkins to Antonio and play 343 with greenwood
    A Watkins to bamford and again 343 with greenwood
    B greenwood to Harrison and play 352 with Watkins on bench

    Thank you and gl

        Cheers. Realised I put 2 options a oops

  3. Bubbles1985
    • 4 Years

    Any hope that Bale will start this one do we think?!

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Too risky imo

      1. Bubbles1985
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        I already had him unfortunately, he was my big gamble last GW...!

        Went well

    2. mixology
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Decent chance imo

      1. Bubbles1985
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Cheers. I think so too as it will be a farewell game?!

        1. mixology
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Wait for pressers. Spurs were terrible though and I wouldn’t target any of their players after seeing them midweek

    3. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Yes, I'm holding and starting (not that I have many other options).

    4. Well you know, Triffic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Yes as it's his final game.

  4. Powers106
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    I was looking at the GW history of the FPL No.1, I mean, man, gw1 was 151k then basically double digits for a few weeks then since gw8 only single digits, mostly like 21 weeks as no. 1 and currently 1st. That is insane! Quite the contrast to the No.2 who worked steadily to get there.

    1. Bubbles1985
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Surely a large amount of luck to get and hold the position that long.

    Predictions for Leicester vs. Spurs?

    Do you reckon Lei will go for it and try for 3+ for goal difference? Honestly can’t see Spurs winning this after the midweek performance. Or might Rodgers try to keep it tight and just get a victory?

    1. zotter
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Full of goals

      1. mixology
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Seems an annual occurrence with them. Are you confident in keeping Spurs assets?

    2. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 17 days ago

      I agree that they can't realistically win by 5 goals. They have to hope Chelsea (or less likely Liverpool) stumble and drop points.

      1. AutoFill 2021
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Villa a good contest. At home (with fans) and Jack - best keeper in the league - good enough defence and should get a goal - Chelsea could easily drop points.

    3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      All the talk of goals so it’ll probably be 0-0

      Leicester have done an awful bottle job on the champions league for the second year running

      1. mixology
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Spurs were so bad I’m considering getting rid of their assets honestly

    4. Oooo Matron
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      If Leicester need to win by a few I see it being quite open, Son could do well if Leicester play their ridiculously high line

  6. The Train Driver
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Bruno > Mane

    or

    DCL > Antonio and play Watkins ahead of Bruno?

    (think Bruno will be rested but get some minutes).

    1. zotter
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Bruno to Mane

    2. Oooo Matron
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Mane in

  7. Mongreloid
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Fernandes to mane and welbeck to Wood for -4?

    1. zotter
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Yeah

    2. Oooo Matron
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Yeah but prefer Antonio or even Ihenacho

  8. aborg

    Anyone trying to catch up with their rival thinking of captaining TAA, as a last ditch attempt?

    1. mixology
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      It’s not a bad shout. Palace have been scoring though with Cristiano Benteke

      1. Jimmers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        No Eze or Benteke for Palace

    2. zotter
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Better captaining someone rival doesn’t have at all

    3. The Train Driver
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      I'm thinking the same but another differential since he has TAA.

    4. Bubbles1985
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      I fancy Benteke to score.

      Armband is on Antonio or Bamford for me.
      Both players my rival does not have!

      1. aborg
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        You think Benteke will play though?...I think he is slightly injured.

        1. Oooo Matron
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Not sure Benteke will play - Palace sound full of injuries

    5. Well you know, Triffic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      If you want differential try Kane, Antonio, Bamford, Wood.

    1. Hits from the Bong

      Don’t Everton always beat City though? And this should be a B team

    2. Oooo Matron
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Getting rid, they look so bad in attack Everton

    3. BeWater
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Getting Bamford.

    4. MidTableFantasy
      • 6 Years

      Yes between Wood, Nacho, and I guess Bam Bam

      1. Firmino
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Thinking the same, would take a hit for Greenwood/Foden to Raphinha or Targett to Robertson?

            Think either of those transfers could work out well, even with the hit. I'd go for it personally.

        2 months, 17 days ago

        A, but I'm wary of selling Son with Leicester going full attack

        1. fcsaltyballs
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Do you think they’re gonna try and win 5 or 6 nil at the expense of conceding on the counter??

      2. BeWater
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 17 days ago

        You could do DCL to Antonio and Greenwood to Torres.

        1. fcsaltyballs
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Or Greenwood to Raphinha I guess... Greenwood a doubt do you reckon?

          1. BeWater
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 17 days ago

            I have him and am going to play him.

            Unfortunately I can't get Torres without a hit because I have 2 City keepers and Gundo!

        2 months, 17 days ago

        Don’t you have enough to do JWP/DCL to Raph/Antonio. Then bench Son.

        Would prefer Son coming off my bench than JWP.
        Also shaw unlikely to play.

        1. fcsaltyballs
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Mate... thank you for bringing this to my attention I can do this

          Just leaves me with a benching headache

          1. Jimbo-Jones
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 17 days ago

            If you’re looking for differential, you could also look at DCL/Coleman to Antonio/Robbo, and keep Son (bench Shaw).

            1. fcsaltyballs
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              I’d probably bench Greenwood or Lingard over Son ?!

              Robertson is an option

    4. TimoTime

        Greenwood to Raphina

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          1. dabber7
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            Yep Greenwood to Raphina

    7. Aztec Kamara
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Start Mount or Lingard?
      Thanks

      1. Jimbo-Jones
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Lingard for me. Southampton are done.

      2. Well you know, Triffic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Tough. I'd go Lingard as Saints are dodgy at the back.

      3. BeWater
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Lingard.

      4. House Frey Wedding Planner

        Lingard

      Nervous not owning Bam, but don’t fancy losing Kane or Antonio. 1FT.

      A - Bruno to Mané
      B - Bruno/Vydra -> Bamford/10.9 mid (-4), bench Lingard
      C - Vydra to Bamford, bench Bruno

      Ederson
      TAA Rudiger Dallas
      Salah Greenwood Lingard Raph Bruno
      Kane Antonio

      Shaw Vydra Mitchell

      1. Well you know, Triffic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        A

      2. leeboy104
          2 months, 17 days ago

          C seems counterintuitive as you leave lots of money on the bench, but I think it's the safe option.

          Risky option is A. Boom or bust.

      3. leeboy104
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Watkins and Zaha or Siggy to:
          a) Firmino and Willock (-4)
          b) Antonio and Raph (-4)
          c) Just do one of Willock, Antonio or Raph moves
          Have Lingard and Bamford

          1. BeWater
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 17 days ago

            I would do one of Raph or Antonio.

        • Davidwes
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          What to do with this team?
          Im 3 points of top 1k
          Meslier
          Dallas, TAA, Coufal
          Salah, Mane, Lingard, Foden
          Bamford, Kane, Antonio
          Bench: Pickford, Stones, Digne, ESR
          A) Meslier----> Casilla
          B) Meslier,Foden-> Ederson,Raph -4
          C) Your suggestion

          1. BeWater
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 17 days ago

            What about playing Pickford and doing Foden to Raph. Foden probably won't start.

            1. Davidwes
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              Im already on triple leeds unfortunately

          2. Jimbo-Jones
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 17 days ago

            Wouldn’t take -4 for keeper. CS so hard to predict this week, so it’s likely going to end in a -2 move, and Pickford should get save points at least.

            Team is great. If you’re happy Foden starts, I’d maybe switch Digne to your favourite first bench player. Otherwise Foden to Raph is the template move.

            1. Davidwes
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              Thing is I want raphina because foden will most likely not start, but need to get rid of a leeds player to make that possible so I dont know if I want to take a hit in the last gameweek and have to make up 7 points to finnish top 1k

        • fpork
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          1) Dallas
          2) Robertson

          1. leeboy104
              2 months, 17 days ago

              Dallas

            • House Frey Wedding Planner
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              If you already have a Pool defender then Dallas

          2. House Frey Wedding Planner
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 17 days ago

            Best move?

            A - Dias >> TAA
            B - Dias + DCL >> TAA + Bamford (-4)
            C - Shaw + DCL >> TAA + Bamford (-4)
            D - Bruno + DCL >> Manè + Bamford (-4)

            Am 28 pts clear of rival who has TAA. Suspect he may end up doing Bruno to Manè (c) to try and catch me

            Cheers

              Probably just A. But C of the options that need a hit.

            Play Foden and bench Willock
            Or play Willock and bench Foden?
