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.

        He has Phillips as his third pool player and Bamford.

    3. 007 [RoboKlopp]

      B with Bamford?

        Rival has him, thinking of taking a punt on Antonio

    4. Boxwoods

      Who are you current differentials? All three moves could pay off, but maybe you don’t need to gamble on a -4.

      1. Disturbed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 11 days ago

        Dallas, lingard, Watkins the ones that matter. Shaw but he most probably won’t start

        1. Boxwoods
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 11 days ago

          Hmmm. That is fairly tight. B is probably the way to go. Good luck!

      2. Disturbed

          Who are rival’s main diffs? With Nacho and the other three, there might be a case for A.

    5. WHUFCSmith23
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 10 days ago

      A for me, I wouldn't be taking a hit. I'm not sure DCL is the worst option either. City haven't exactly been solid.

    Bruno, keep or sell?

    1. Eightball
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 11 days ago

      I'm thinking of selling. United are guaranteed second and have europa league final 3 days after this game. I think he will be rested.

    2. AB.
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 11 days ago

      I’m chasing in my ML - so am probably going to sell as a punt.

      1. KUN_DE_BRU_YNE

        Who would you punt with ?

        1. AB.
          • 12 Years

          Probably Mane

  5. AppleDunk
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 11 days ago

    Would you do Coleman, Bruno, DCL -> Coufal, Harrison, Antonio (-4) ?

    1. WHUFCSmith23
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Why not just do Coufal and Harrison?

  6. kobewan
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 11 days ago

    Best replacement for Fabianski? I have forster on as sub GK but it is a little as saints coach has preferred McCarthy last two GW

    1. Wild Rover
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 11 days ago

      I think Forster starts. Even if he doesn't, surely you have more important moves to make? If it was for a hit, I'd risk Forster starting over taking a hit for a keeper for on game.

      1. Wild Rover
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 11 days ago

        *one game

      2. kobewan
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 11 days ago

        no hit, not planning to change the other players I took Fabianski for the last two GW unfortunately he got injured during the warm ups.. now planning to use my last transfer for a GK just to be sure of having all 11 playing.

        1. Wild Rover
          • 11 Years
          4 months, 11 days ago

          Fair enough. Leno or Casilla then

    2. Eightball
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 11 days ago

      depends how much free cash you have in the bank?

      1. kobewan
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 11 days ago

        5.3

        1. Eightball
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 11 days ago

          Maybe Meslier if you dont already have 3 leeds (you probably do). Newcastle game also looks decent.

          1. Eightball
            • 1 Year
            4 months, 11 days ago

            nevermind I rjust realised Meslier wont be playing so dont pick him haha

          2. kobewan
            • 1 Year
            4 months, 11 days ago

            Newcastle's fixture looks decent they only have Dubravka but currently flagged with Hamstring injury.

  7. Eightball
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 11 days ago

    A) Bruno > Mane
    B) Benteke > Bamford
    C) Benteke + Bruno > Mane + Bamford (-4)

    Mini league wrapped up and I'm 8 points off top 10k. I'm thinking C and maybe a differential captain on Mane.

    1. Steiger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 11 days ago

      C without question

    2. Boxwoods
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 11 days ago

      Agree with Steigs

  8. KUN_DE_BRU_YNE
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 11 days ago

    Will pulisic & Firmino(C) will be great differential to overcome 30 points?
    Hit n miss !!!

    1. Stupendous
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 11 days ago

      Yea a good start.

      Your rival still has a team though so it may not matter

    2. WHUFCSmith23
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 10 days ago

      If Firmino gets a hat trick and their captain fails it becomes wide open. You're asking for a miracle but it's not completely out of the realms of possibility against a woeful Palace team.

      Firmino is in decent form and Pulisic feels like the best high risk high reward punt this week. I like your moves mate.

  9. Stupendous
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 11 days ago

    All set for the final hurrah????

    Maybe missing a keeper again but not worth a hit right?

    Forster might end up playing

    Meslier
    Taa Rudiger. Dallas
    Son Salah(c) Lingard Harrison
    Kane. Antonio (v). Firmino

    Forster Pereira Holding Targett

  10. HMC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 11 days ago

    Would you move Ings or DCL to fund Bale to Mane?

    Bamford ahead of Antonio right?

    1. Eightball
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 11 days ago

      Good moves. Bamford and Antonio are both good. West ham are chasing Europe so thats an added factor but Leeds are Leeds. I think Bamford edges it just.

      1. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 11 days ago

        Ings has trolled me the past few games (when doesn’t he!).
        Maybe I just keep him since west ham haven’t kept a cleanie in 10 games and often goals in the final game

  11. kobewan
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 11 days ago

    I have 3 UTD players

    A. Rashford
    B. Greenwood
    C. Shaw

    Who likely to bench last GW?

    1. Eightball
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 11 days ago

      I think Greenwood is the most likely to start. The other two it's pretty trickly. I think they might both be rested but maybe wait for leaked team news.

    If you could choose any gk? Ederson or Mendy? Or a gk with better likelihood for CS?

    1. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 11 days ago

      Everton better away from home.
      Allison probably has the best chance of cs

  13. HMC

    Best Greenwood replacement 6.6m or under?

    Own Harrison already and el Ghazi will be first sub

    Would choose Foden if I knew he’d start.
    Is Wilock hurt?

    1. leeboy104
      4 months, 11 days ago

      Joelinton has a knock. Saint-Maximin, we don’t know yet if it’s a calf injury or whether it’s just a kick as well so we’ll see how he is. Dubravka has a bit of a hamstring but I don’t think there’s anything too bad. Joe Willock is just fatigued.

      Willock should be fine but I'd monitor the news about ASM and Joelinton. If they're out I'd avoid.

      1. leeboy104

        Should have used speech marks, that's a quote from Steve Bruce.

    2. Qaiss
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 11 days ago

      I’d say Raphinha if you don’t have triple Leeds as I think they will hammer West Brom.

      Saka, Lingard, Pereira all other shouts.

  14. Stand By Mee
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 11 days ago

    What do you think of:

    Son, Vydra to Raphinha, Bamford for -4 ?

    1. yanky
      • 11 Years

      id do that, leeds at home with fans should be great

    2. WHUFCSmith23

      You have the same gk’s as FPL No.1, (in gw37) congrats! But I don’t think either are expected to play gw38? Not Meslier for sure

      1. Stupendous
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 11 days ago

        I know but I'm not sure it's worth a hit.

        I can't see any clear clean sheet options and I have no free left

    2. Qaiss

      Meslier > Casilla/Leno?

      1. Stupendous
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 11 days ago

        No FT.

        Also if I did that (Leno) then I would be tempted to do Kane to Bamford for a hit and that's madness

    Why is everyone seemingly Raphinha over Harrison?

    1. Stupendous
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 11 days ago

      I have Harrison over Raph

      But, if I was bringing one in now it would likely be Raph

    2. Qaiss
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 11 days ago

      Maybe just hunch of Raphinha turning it up for the crowd and stuff. He seems due a haul. Free kicks and some corners too.

  20. The White Pele

    Rodrigo or Harrison?

    1. ExpressoMySonny

      Rodrigo for a punt

    Currently sitting at 185k and wanting to improve my OR. Which of these two moves?
    A) Watkins to Antonio and Play Coufal if Shaw doesn’t play
    B) Watkins and Digne to Trent and Antonio for a -4

    1. The White Pele

    If i dont do Son to Mane now i might be priced out with Son going down and Mane up. Should i do it or wait till deadline and risk not getting Mane? Perhaps to Raphina or Dallas

      Interesting to see the prices of Liverpool assets now at the end of the season, after they’ve been fairly lackluster all year (although Salah still had a strong season).

      Sometimes FPL tends to round up players’ end of season prices for the following season. Would hate to see Salah at 13 mil and TAA at 8 next season

      1. A-L
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 11 days ago

        When you look at the 'owned by' numbers, a lot of these were higher at the start of the season even though prices are higher now. Some weird price fixing been going on and not sure if it's been in previous seasons too

      2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 10 days ago

        Salah’s price has dropped 3 years in a row (9.0 > 13.0 > 12.5 > 12.0) led by his scores (300 > 260 > 230 > 225 + whatever he gets on Sunday)

        The only way he’s increasing from 12.0 is if he gets 15+ on Sunday to finish on 240+, and even then he’d probably need 25+ to really put daylight between last seasons score

        Same with TAA - can’t see him going from 210 > 155 without a price decrease from 7.5... but he’s never going to be 6.5 with set pieces & VVD back

        12.0 & 7.0 looks fairly nailed on - *maybe* 11.5 and 6.5, but seems unlikely

        The points just haven’t been there to justify 12.5 & 8.0

          What's your thoughts on Kane pricing for next season please?

          1. The Point About It Is
            • 9 Years
            4 months, 10 days ago

            FPL is only for UK Premier League.

          2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
            • 11 Years
            4 months, 10 days ago

            If still I’d Spurs I’d say 12.0

            If at Man City probably 12.5

            Cant see him finishing the summer transfer window anywhere other than those two clubs

            The money isn’t there in Spain for a player who’ll be 29 next season (Haaland is different as he’d be cheaper than Kane this summer, and half the price next summer with his release clause, and is also a full 7 years younger than Kane)

            And not sure he’ll risk doing a Sol Campbell & joining a bitter London rival in Chelsea

            With Cavani signing for another season, Greenwood emerging & Martial back he’s not really going to be a priority for Man Utd either at that price - they alreadyhave oodles of goals in the side without Kane (those three above plus Bruno, Rashford, Pogba etc)

            Utd should be going for Danny Ings for 20m with his contract expiring - infinitely better value than Kane for 150m, he’s the same age, similar quality (he genuinely is, as is Cavani) doesn’t need to play a full season, and doesn’t block Greenwood’s pan the same way Kane would

        2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • 11 Years
          4 months, 10 days ago

          *price has decreased two years in a row even, not 3 obvs

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years

          Zero chance Trent is anything less than 7m
