Scout Picks

FPL Gameweek 7 Scout Picks built on Chelsea triple-up

There’s not a Liverpool or Manchester City player in sight in our Fantasy Premier League (FPL) Scout Picks for Gameweek 7.

A Chelsea triple-up instead forms the spine of the side this week, with eight other teams represented in the remaining spots.

After Sam, Az, Neale and Tom submitted their Scout Squad selections earlier this week, we have chosen our best players ahead of tomorrow’s 11:00 BST deadline.

We line up in a 3-4-3 formation and come in at £81.9m, well under our £83.0m budget.

GOALKEEPER

The best goalkeepers for UEFA Champions League Fantasy

With 17 clean sheets in 25 Premier League matches since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel in January, Edouard Mendy (£6.0m) is the first of two Chelsea backline options in this week’s Scout Picks. The Blues’ stopper has kept three clean sheets in five games so far this season, and is the fourth-highest scoring goalkeeper in FPL despite missing a week. His numbers are impressive, too, given that his 3.45 saves per 90 minutes ranks fifth – only behind Karl Darlow (£4.5m), Illan Meslier (£5.0m), Ben Foster (£4.0m) and Hugo Lloris (£5.6m) – while his 5.5 minutes-per-baseline-bonus (BBPS) is also encouraging, and suggests that he could be in the mix when Chelsea do keep a clean sheet. Against a Southampton side that is goalless in three matches, Mendy’s inclusion makes a lot of sense.

    Anyone thinking of selling Grealish, could you do it in the next hour please?
    Price drop would me much appreciated, been stuck in the -80%’s all day.
    Much obliged x

      I do not own him. You are in luck though. There are still over 3 hours to go before price changes but would not wait up as he ain't falling in price, yet.

        Cheers Dave, watching you on Graham Norton right now

          Rock on Bro. Ha ha

    Quick vote:

    1. Ronaldo White D.Luiz(benched) locked 4-3-3
    2. Vardy Alonso Mbeumo(rotate with Cash when fixtures are good) 4-3-3 or 3-4-3 flexibility.

    Might just get Robbo in for Trent. Easy swap back if all ok for Watford

  4. REDMOND IN SANDALS

      Thoughts on Jota to Mbuemo for -4? hearing Jota might miss out next two. or should I just rely on McArthur to come from the bench?

        Pass. Klopp started alll 4 vs City last season so it's possible.

        You'll hate that move when Jota braces vs Watford and Mbembo gets 2p vs Chelsea. Mane coming back late, could easily miss Watford game.

            yeah the original plan was to do that 2 weeks later after the Watford game but these recent rumors have forced me to evaluate this move much earlier. think I will pass. cheers

            Reckon moving Benrahma out may be a good idea, he played full game in Europe this week add fixtures/rotation into the equation, possible better options around

        • Taegugk Warrior

            I wildcarded last week and was planning just to bring in lukaku and maybe one other Chelsea this week. Injuries to James and TAA annoying. Is anyone tempted with a free hit this week?

            Best 5.5-6.5 option other than Raphinha?

            1 month, 28 days ago

            1. Start Greenwood/Raphinia in the team below?
            2. Take a hit to double up Chelsea defence for VVD? Yes/No?

            Sanchez
            Rudiger, VVD, Marcal
            Salah, Sarr, Benrahma, Greenwood/Raphinha
            Ronaldo, Antonio, Jimenez
