Mark Sutherns’ FPL Gameweek 4 preview and latest team plans

Fantasy Football Scout founder Mark Sutherns is back ahead of Gameweek 4 to offer his latest musings and reveal his Fantasy Premier League (FPL) line-up over on our YouTube channel.

This video is an exclusive for Premium Members – and there’ll be plenty more to come in 2021/22.

Mark will be filming one video just for subscribers every week throughout the upcoming campaign, so sign up via this link in order to see them.

In this latest episode, the FPL BlackBox co-host is joined, as always, by Andy North.

Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.5m) is, inevitably, the big talking point although with Andy’s Wildcard in play, there’s plenty more to cover.

Mark offers a review of Andy’s re-work, though he’s reluctant to offer any form of persuasion when it comes to the one final dilemma remaining: whether to opt for Ronaldo or Romelu Lukaku (£11.5m).

Find out why Mark has his own agenda on that matter and which way Andy is leaning by taking in this latest video offering for members.

    Did I miss the Scout Pick article?

      No - put there is a team on the home page

        I saw the team but didn't see the article that normally accompanies it.
        Wondering why its Bruno over Ronaldo (and their captain)

          Think that's last weeks team and not updated correctly?

              Ah ok, yeah surprised no Ronaldo in there.

                No way there would be Wolves players in last week 🙂

                @Pat Bonner - did you see the lad at the Ireland game wearing your old yellow jersey?

    CT team 2FTs

    Sanchez
    TTA-Digne-Shaw
    Benrahma-Salah-Bruno-Barnes
    Toney-Ings-Antonio

    Steele-Tsi-Gilmour-Manquillo

    Considering the following options

    1. Gray+Jimenez (Barnes+Ings)
    2. Gray+ Bamford (Barnes+Ings)
    3. Gray+Ronaldo+Torres (Barnes+Ings+Bruno) -4

    1. fricky_

        3 is risky, but I like it

          My only hesitation is Bruno guaranteed 90mins whereby Ronaldo to come on at the 60th

      • Avery
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        Not got any doubts over Torres starting?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          I think considering his form and KDB and Foden just coming to fitness might give him a few more run of games

      2. fricky_

          It's a toss up between Lukaku, Antonio, Salah for me, so at the moment very uncertain

        Anyone else considering Trincão?

        If I take a -8 for Ronaldo I have 5.9 for a midfielder…

        2. H.E. Pennypacker

          yes at some point, but not doing a WC this week so maybe in for GW5

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Can’t believe I sacrificed Greenwood instead of Jota for DCL.

        Regretting it a lot

        1. Amartey Partey
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          All 3 are good options.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          Why would you sacrifice Jota? Looking to bring him in myself.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Jota is better long term

          1. Bennerman
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Not a long-term game, though, aim is to switch people around so you pick up the right points form the right players on the right days.

            Know what you mean, though, yeah.

          I got them both and didn't bother with DCL..

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        A. Son, Ings > Jota, DCL

        B. Bruno, Son, Ings, Obafemi > Jota, Sarr, Ronaldo, DCL (-8)

          1 month, 9 days ago

          I’m similar ish team to you. Was all set on no Ronaldo (this week) until son injury.

          I’m increasingly leaning towards the -8, partly as it’s more fun.

          Can you do Son and Ings and one other out for just a -4?

          1. HaffNanner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Exactly. It's just more fun to have Ronaldo. Certainly more fun than hoping he doesn't score.

            Taking a -4 means I need a 6.7 striker or mid. If I'm taking a hit I would rather go all in with a -8 for Ronny.

      7. Oldie99
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Both -4, which option do you pick. Have Greenwood Shaw but no other players from any of the teams:

        A. Traore & Ron
        B. Torres and Lukaku

        1. Begbie.
          • 7 Years

        Sanchez
        Webster TAA Shaw Tsmi

          - Big news. Liverpool defence better, albeit Raphinha involved again now.
          - Jesus back in the picture for City attacking assets
          - Already knew about Jimenez etc. Sierralta available for Watford helps them a bit.

          A) Bruno, Ings -> CR7, Torres
          B) Bruno, Ings, Tsimi -> CR7, Jota, 4.0 (-4)

          Leaning towards A but worried that it’s too risky for this GW with ESR likely out and uncertainty around CR7’s minutes.

          Thoughts?

          All week was on Ings and Bruno to Ronaldo (c) and Torres

          Just pulled the trigger on Salah and Ings to Lukaku (c) and Jota.

          Feels kinds good. I know the risks but being able to captain Lukaku at home to Villa without Martinez and for that to be a differential seems like a good risk to take. Hopefully Bruno keeps pens and Ronaldo stays on the bench.......arghh. anyone got a big couch I can borrow?!!!

        7. Nightf0x

          A) get jota 4.5 mid. or tarore & sarr (my mid. Salah green benrahma)
          B) 4.5 mid whom? Allan or sisoko

          What about Chilwell on WC?
          5.7 and is a massive value if he starts to play.

          1. Begbie.
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            I like the look of him but I'm waiting for a few weeks. Chelsea's fixtures become amazing in a couple of GW's time and by then we'll have a better idea of who is nailed. James at 5.6 probably even better value than Chilwell at 5.7 anyway IMO.

            1. DIMITRIS
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 9 days ago

              I agree with you completely.

                  Will be in same dilemma when I make transfers I think. Will start raph - potentially higher upside

                    Thanks. Think I’m leaning that way as like playing the attacker

                With the news Raph is cleared to play, what is the best option this week:

                1. Fernandes Ings >> Raphinha Ronaldo [then Toney >> DCL next week]
                2. Tsimikas Fernandes Ings >> Livramento Jota Ronaldo (-4) [then Benrahma >> Raphinha next week]

                Thanks guys

                  I like 2 out of those but I’d wait until last minute to see if any news on ronaldo starting or not

                    I don’t think there will be any further news mate. Ole said he will be on the pitch at some point, which makes you think sub appearance. But Cavani not in the squad which makes you think he could start…

                  So much to upgrade. DEF - Spurs and City can be upgraded later
                  Torres can be on a pep rotation system.
                  West Ham double up is risky (Raph! then Sarr or Gray)
                  No Jota? With Utd double?

                How's this for a rogue idea....

                Salah and Ings out for Jota and Ronaldo.

                Keep Bruno for the Newcastle game.

                Then if I regret Salah out, I can just bring him back next week

                  Salah still best player in the game for me

                    I'd probably prefer Torres to Greenwood right enough but that's just preference. I think a 7m City midfielder playing at striker should be in everyone's team.

                "Bruno Fernandes: “I really like free-kicks. It’s something I practice and it’s something I want to have the reward of scoring a free-kick. I prefer a free-kick to a penalty!”

                https://twitter.com/UtdDistrict/status/1436301734763245578

                Just throwing more flames 😆

                In all seriousness, Bruno on free kicks makes far more sense than Ronaldo given his record. Maybe that's the compromise lol.
