Scout Picks

FPL Gameweek 5 Scout Picks features Liverpool triple-up

A Liverpool triple-up forms the spine of our Gameweek 5 Scout Picks for Fantasy Premier League (FPL).

After Sam, Az, Neale and Tom submitted their Scout Squad selections earlier this week, we have chosen our best players ahead of tonight’s 18:30 BST deadline.

We line up in a 4-4-2 formation and we’ve used every penny of our £83.0m budget.

GOALKEEPER

With our expensive purchases further forward, we needed a £4.5m option for goalkeeping duties this week. Aaron Ramsdale (£4.5m) fits the bill after a debut that earned huge plaudits from his manager, and it was no surprise that the Gunners finally recorded their first clean sheet of the campaign when they had their first-choice back four all available for the first time. The rotation risk can’t be eliminated, especially after this match, but a clash with Burnley doesn’t seem like the time to reinstate Bernd Leno (£4.9m) give his inability to handle crosses.

DEFENDERS

Thomas Tuchel’s Blues have had the best backline in Europe since January and are yet to concede from open play this season. Weekend opponents Tottenham Hotspur offered very little in the final third in Gameweek 4, registering just two shots, and are a lowly joint-18th for big chances created in 2021/22. That lack of goal threat, plus an injury crisis in north London, makes us keen on Chelsea representation at the back. It’s always a nerve-wracking game trying to second-guess Tuchel’s line-ups but Reece James (£5.6m) at least had a ‘rest’ last weekend thanks to suspension and his tallies of four shots and five key passes in just 161 minutes of pitch-time really catches the eye.

On the subject of solid defences, Manchester City’s often doesn’t get the attention it deserves thanks to their exploits further forward. The reigning champions are on a run of three clean sheets and have remarkably only conceded one shot on target since the opening weekend, with even Ederson (£6.0m) smothering that effort at source. With injuries to other centre-halves and concern over possible rotation at full-back, mainstay Ruben Dias (£6.0m) is the safe play.

A home match against Palace might have looked like a stonewall banker for a clean sheet under the dour Roy Hodgson but Patrick Vieira has got the Eagles playing with a bit more attacking verve since his appointment. But shut-outs are only a small part of the reason why we love Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) so much, and the Liverpool right-back is in red-hot form: over his last 14 matches, the prolific chance creator is averaging 7.8 FPL points per match.

Marcal (£4.6m) delivered the goods for us last week but we’re changing flanks for Wolves representation against a Brentford outfit who look solid at the back but who are struggling up top. Marcal has generally been providing service from out wide but Nelson Semedo (£4.9m) is the one who has been more regularly drifting infield into threatening goalscoring positions and had two of the six big chances that Wolves created last weekend. Semedo’s 11 penalty box touches is a tally beaten by only two FPL defenders this season.

MIDFIELDERS

Who are the best FPL captain options for Gameweek 2? 6

The solid centre-half pairing of Marc Guehi (£4.5m) and Joachim Andersen (£4.5m) look like they could really improve the fortunes of Palace’s backline this season but after Liverpool racked up 52 shots against Leeds United and AC Milan in the last week, we can’t look past the Reds on home soil. Serious consideration was given to a rested Sadio Mane (£11.9m) after he registered an eye-catching 10 goal attempts against the Whites but it was unsurprisingly his two attacking comrades who instead received the bulk of the votes in this week’s Scout Squad.

Mohamed Salah‘s (£12.5m) totals of 16 goal attempts, 14 shots in the box and 12 chances created all rank among the top three players in the Premier League this season, while his points-per-match average of 9.5 is the best among FPL midfielders. And Diogo Jota (£7.7m), as he did for much of the previous campaign, is right up there Liverpool’s premium midfield pair for underlying stats: a total of 0.99 big chances per 90 minutes is even better than what Salah is managing this season. Had it not been for Mane’s wastefulness in Gameweek 4, the Portuguese – who carved out six chances last Sunday – would have dodged a blank.

With slight concerns over Ferran Torres’ (£7.2m) minutes after five successive starts for club and country over the last fortnight, we’ve opted for a relatively rested Ilkay Gundogan (£7.3m) as our not-entirely-risk-free route into a potent Manchester City attack. Gundogan evoked memories of last season’s purple patch with his stats against Leicester last weekend, racking up six shots and four key passes.

We have yet to see the best of Leeds this season but as luck would have it, along come Newcastle United. The Magpies are woeful at the back, bottom of the table for goals conceded and big chances allowed. They also shipped seven goals to Marcelo Bielsa’s side last season across their two meetings. Raphinha (£6.5m) has yet to catch fire but still sits 14th among FPL midfielders for expected goal involvement (xGI) despite facing fairly sturdy backlines in Manchester United, Everton and Liverpool.

FORWARDS

The best FPL forwards to consider as Calvert-Lewin and Antonio replacements 7

On the subject of the Friday night game, Patrick Bamford (£7.9m) was cleared to play by his manager to quieten the social media frenzy around a possible ‘pinged’ hamstring. Among the top five Fantasy forwards for penalty box touches and shots in the opposition box despite the tricky start to the season, the striker averaged 5.89 points per match in away fixtures last season and four of his five double-digit hauls came on the road.

It was a toss-up between Romelu Lukaku (£11.6m) and Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.6m) for our premium forward slot. With little to separate their own credentials, it’s as much about the opposition this weekend. Nuno Espirito Santo’s counter-attacking Spurs look like they will fare better against the bigger teams this season but are ravaged by injury going into Sunday’s game. West Ham, meanwhile, have registered just two clean sheets in their last 15 Premier League fixtures (both against Southampton) but may well set up in a more defensive shape in east London, as they did in both league meetings with the Red Devils last weekend. The Portuguese gets the nod, marginally, with the Hammers’ loss of an out-ball in Michail Antonio (£7.9m) likely to invite more pressure and the form of Craig Dawson (£5.0m) iffy.

THE CAPTAIN

Who are the best captain options for FPL Gameweek 36+?

    Hi friends Sissoko or Traore? Thank you in advance!

    1. A Moon Shaped Pool
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Wow top post

    2. Hazz

      2 months, 17 days ago

      To buy or play? Very different price points.

      Would still play Traore ahead of Sissoko, but can understand not doing so. Traore ownership only at 4.4% owned so its mostly your pride that would be hurt.

      1. A Moon Shaped Pool
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Thank you very much for the reply. I really appreciate it. Need to play a fifth mid I was thinking of Trincao

    3. Müller Light
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Depends on your team, if is bench fodder then Sissoko.

      If you need them to play then probably some other 6M like Sarr.

      Traore has no end product at all, maybe as a punt pick him, but choose someone else preferably.

        Thank you for your output really appreciate it. I need to play 5 mid because of Antonio.I thought of picking Trincao ahead of Traore

        1. Müller Light
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          I'd rather have Traore than Trincao.

          If you're playing 3-5-2, then have a punt at Traore then.

          If you're playing 3-4-3, with just Antonio out for this week, then get Sissoko.

          You don't want bench player taking up money you could use for emergency transfers later on.

    Even if the sudden Raphinha doubt rumours end up being true, I'm glad my 2nd sub is the best midfielder in the Premier League.

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

      What rumours are these?

    2. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      What? Why is raphina a doubt ?

    3. Joey Tribbiani
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Did the rumor start from that screenshot of random whatsapp group. Who are those people anyway?

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

        It's a Lees forum, not a WhatsApp group. I can't vouch for anyone bit others have said the poster was typically quite reliable.

        I'm just relaying information.

        Note that he said Raphinha was a doubt, not out.

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

      You have KDB on the bench?

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

        Don't be silly.

      Lol.

      This person is not the source but has a screenshot of the source

      https://twitter.com/gwhizz420/status/1438830971814617097?s=19

      Harrison apparently not seen in the team walkabout, so could be an element of truth in his COVID rumours.

      https://twitter.com/L__1919/status/1438834338263621638?s=19

      To reiterate. All rumours currently.

    7. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years

      I have bloody Livramento coming on.

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Livramento and Bissy for me, with Duffy already covering Antonio.

    8. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Wouldn’t be benching Bruno Hazz

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

        Wrong B

  3. The Alli Way

    Should I WC from this team:

    Sanchez (Steele)
    TAA Shaw Reguilon Ayling (Tsimikas)
    Salah Greenwood Torres Benrahma (Brownhill)
    Ronaldo Antonio Toney

    To this team:

    Sa (Steer)
    TAA Dias Rudiger Semedo (Livramento)
    Salah Jota Raphinia Gray (Gallagher)

    Thanks!

  4. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Dcl and then Raph would be 2 kicks in the nut sack in a week

    1. Do I Not Like Orange
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Same. Already on a -4 and will be lucky to get 11 out if Raph no shows.

    2. Ross Geller
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      + Antonio

    3. Guba
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      I transferred in DCL last week and captained Antonio... horribly punished for not doing the template route of taking hits for Ronaldo. Also own Raph but I've hit the WC

    4. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      I have Harrison and Antonio + Perica. Already on -4 and Livramento has MCI this week.

  5. Gudjohnsen
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Captaining Jota rather than Salah asking for trouble?

    1. Jonny HOW SON?
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      pretty much

    2. mynameisq
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Not if both were definitely starting but Jota more likely to get rotated than Salah that's for sure

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

        Jota starts imo

    3. Studs Up
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Makes two of us then lol

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

        Stop trying to be clever. Really no need to ovethink at this stage and Saalh EO ownership will kill your rank if he hauls.

        1. Studs Up
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 17 days ago

          True, but i dont buy into this "EO if he hauls"...rank affected by weekly overall score, not one player imo.
          But i can be wrong

    4. Amartey Partey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Yes. Jota blanked in the midweek game while Salah got a goal and assist.

    5. Guba
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      It can work but the odds are against you. With Salah's high EO you'd be essentially hoping for a Salah blank despite owning and a Jota haul. Or captain Salah and be happy with any points from both.

  6. Jonny HOW SON?
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Gray vs Doucoure

    What's the consensus, who do you reckon is the better option?

    1. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Altho on the face of it looks close, stats point clearly to gray

    2. OptimusBlack
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Doucoure for difference

    3. Amartey Partey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      I’d go with Gray, but Doucoure looking good too.

  7. OptimusBlack
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Lukaku C ?

    1. Guba
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      I think Lukaku will score but it's not the safe play with Salah the standout.

    2. WHUFCSmith23
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 17 days ago

      That game screams 0:0 to me.

    3. OptimusBlack
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Cheers

  8. Davew88
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Start Williams or Gilmour?

  9. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Could now end up having gilmour sarr Williams and Bachman all starting lol

  10. CRO KLOPP
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Bench one

    A) Ayling
    B) Tsimikas
    C) White

    1. Blue&White85
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Tsimikas

      1. CRO KLOPP

  11. Lingard’s Shin Guards
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    McArthur's already in the starting 11. Don't know what I'll do if Raph's out too

    Will need Liv against city away 🙁

  12. Super Saints
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Raph will play and return

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      And you knows this how?

      1. claretparrot
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        On the first bit, I can find more 'reliable' evidence that there's no injury than that there is

      2. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Main rival has him, he's been on an incredible run of luck for two seasons now

    2. Amartey Partey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Source?

    3. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Going by your track record, I now know he is definitely injured.

      1. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Don't worry I don't own he will be fine

  13. A Manager Has No Name
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Which option is better on a WC - Tierney or Shaw?

  14. mynameisq
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Could be a mad week if Raph Jota Torres miss out added to DCL and Antonio

    1. Lingard’s Shin Guards
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      People with a light bench sweating right now

      1. mynameisq
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Big time!

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Jota likely to start with Bobby still out.

      What's the news on Raphinha?

    3. Amartey Partey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      I’d be surprised if Jota and Torres don’t start.

      1. mynameisq
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        While I think they will, I certainly wouldn't be surprised if they didn't

    4. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      And possibly Benny

    5. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 17 days ago

      We are going to see some range in scores this week for sure.

    6. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Always happens in the week where Livra is away to Man City too 😆

      Never in the week he gets a cleansheet at home to West Ham

  15. DT42

    Re-posting in the right place.
    I’ve Never had this much trouble with a decision, I need some help FFS!
    A. -8 to play Ronaldo, Jota and Williams
    B. -4 to play Ronaldo, Rafinha and Livra (no bench)
    C. no hit, play Bamford, Bruno and Livra

    Current team is
    Sanchez
    TAA, Shaw, White, Livra, Tsmikas
    Salah, Bruno, Grealish, Torres, Benrahma
    Antonio, DCL, Scarlett

    1. A Manager Has No Name
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      C imo

    2. Ⓙⓐⓡⓥⓘⓢⓗ CMIUK
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      DCL to Bamford and play 352?

      1. Ⓙⓐⓡⓥⓘⓢⓗ CMIUK
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Sorry ignore me

        1. Ⓙⓐⓡⓥⓘⓢⓗ CMIUK
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          DCL and Tsimikas to Bamford and a playing cheapie with a decent fixture this week for -4 I think I would do

          1. DT42
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 17 days ago

            This was option D! I can only afford 4.4 though and not sure a Nor def is worth the -4

    3. Thomas Magnum
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Tsimikas to a 4.0 playing defender then assess next week? Unless you want Ronaldo now then B

    4. Brimble82
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      The question for me is - does Jota outscore Raph by 4pts?
      And I can see it going either way.

      I'd probably be inclined to go B - because Raph is nailed and Jota, whilst nailed for Saturday, will be a rotation risk moving fwd.
      That said - I'll probably have both in my team this GW!

  16. Thomas Magnum
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Webster to
    A) Matip -4
    B) Semedo -4
    C) other defender up to 5.0 -4
    D) bench Webster (-65 fpl stats) and play Gilmour and hope Webster returns soon

  17. FantasyHero
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Best 4.5M keeper going forward.
    Had Sanchez but on a WC and looks like Sanchez has some hard fixtures

    1. Thomas Magnum
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      You won’t really find a 4.5 with great fixtures but Guita is an option if you don’t want Sanchez imo

    2. Michelle Davin
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      bachman

    3. Brimble82
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Still Sanchez of the 4.5s

      Jota and James or C with Raph I’d say

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

        would be bruno+timi->jota+james (-4) then. Who would you pair up with raph in C?

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

          You put only Bamford in it and I agree

      B. Keep Antonio for sure
      Ditch Tsimi to enable Jota
      Get a Wolves def. Samedo if you can afford him

      1. winchester

        cheers. jota the best pick here? heard either he or salah might be rested?

  19. Kuzser
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Do you guys think Tsimikas may start?
    Thinking about playing him instead of White or Ayling…

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Highly unlikely.

    2. Brimble82
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Play him. Just get your bench order right.
      I'd say he has a 0-5% chance of starting

  20. FOO FIGHTER
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Who to have 1st bench if Raphina is out

    Pinnock, Livra or Bissouma?

    1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Their points will be: 1,1,1

      So take your pick

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Think I am going to be brave and go Pinnock. Wolves may end up stuck in 1st gear again.

        Could go with Greenwood over torres

    Plan this week was to bring in Raphina for Benrahma, but with barnes playing 90 last night, (albeit a goal and an assist), I'm a little concerned that 72 hours isn't enough rest and he's a rotation risk.

    Sanchez
    TAA, Shaw, Digne, White
    (S)alah, Benrahma, Barnes, Traore
    Toni, Ronaldo

    Steele, Gilmour, Tsimikas, Antonio

    1FT 1.6 ITB

    Go with planned transfer or another option? Would actually rather sell Benrahma than keep him.

    TIA

      I'd just stick with what you have right now and assess after this game week.

      Benrahma is guaranteed to play barring an injury.

      So, if Barnes is your only doubtful, Gilmour will come in for him, and you'll have a starting 11.

      Doubt BRI vs LEI is a high scoring match anyway, so it's probably only a 2/3 pointer.

      Who's going to replace Barnes? Itchy and Daka both played last night too. Only way he does not play is if Lookman starts which I doubt. Plus goal and assist means he is hitting the form that you bought him for in the first place.

    Which team??

    A)
    Sanchez
    TAA / Marcal / James / Semedo
    Salah / Raph / Jota / Gray
    Ronaldo / Lukaku

    B)
    Sanchez
    TAA / Marcal / Semedo / White
    Salah / Jota / Gray
    Lukaku / Bamford / Ronaldo

        You rang? I've had Raph and Harri since GW1. But you wanna hear the best of it? I took a hit to sell RONALDO for Bamford (to get Salah)

          And yet still top 1k - is your strategy just to bring in the best captain option each week no matter what?

    What's wrong with Raphinha? Dam first DCL, Antonio and now if Raph misses out I might not be able to field 11 this gw

    1. mynameisq
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Rumours started saying Harrison has covid or needs to isolate, and raph has a knock

      Someone then tweeted that Raph was in Newcastle with the squad along with the picture, the picture isn't clear so you can't tell if Raph is there or not

    G2G and roll FT? Backline looks OK but nothing special. Shaw to Semedo is an option?

    Sanchez
    TAA. Shaw. White. Ayling
    Salah. Jota. Raph. Sarr
    Ronaldo. Ings
    (Foster, Gilmour, Livramento, Antonio*)

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

      MUtd fixtures take a steady turn, Wolves have a nice run... so Shaw could go, but for 1 more week I'd be more interested in switching Ings out.

  27. dmfisher
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Thoughts:

    GK: Sanchex
    Def: TAA, Semdo, Omobamidele (Veltman ready in case he's not starting)
    Mid: Gray, Jota, Harrison, Salah
    Fwd: Lukaku, Ron, Pukki
    Subs: Steel (G), Gallagher, Veltman, Livramento

    With 0.1 in the bank to switch Pukki out for A Armstrong depending on input over next fixture or two. Hate not having Bruno, but needs must.

  28. Dynamic Duos
    • 8 Years

    Raph options, Pogba, Greenwood, Torres , Haverts

    1. Threat Level Midnight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Torres

    2. BENOIT

      Why ditch Raph?
