The Scout Squad’s best FPL players for Gameweek 8

The best Fantasy Premier League (FPL) players for Gameweek 8 are debated by Fantasy Football Scout contributors Az, Sam, Neale and Tom.

For those new to this feature, it’s a weekly piece that always takes the form of a ‘Free Hit’-type selection for the upcoming Gameweek.

All of our panelists have put forward an 18-man long-list of Fantasy assets and will explain their notable inclusions and omissions below.

It also serves as a precursor to the Scout Picks, as 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 final our weekly selection.

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 £7.0m or lower
  • No more than three players from the same club

AZ SAID

It’s a really tasty-looking bunch of games this weekend and the only matches I’d have any real confidence in calling are Manchester City beating Burnley and Liverpool putting Watford to the sword. With this in mind, I’ve selected six players from these two teams, including two City defenders (Joao Cancelo and Ruben Dias) and two Liverpool attackers (Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané).

Elsewhere, I feel the Scout Picks are very much up for grabs this week. I like the look of Shane Duffy against Norwich, and he will be a menace at set pieces. As many (including myself) flock to expensive, premium midfielders, could the £4.4m Brighton man make a mockery of his price tag?

In midfield, despite Newcastle’s new wealth and Spurs’ indifferent form so far this season, this looks a good game for Son Heung-min to deliver and I would say he’s the best “non-Salah” player to consider captaining, if you were looking for a differential. He has only managed two goals in 10 games against the Magpies, but with Harry Kane not playing his best football, eyes will be on Son to deliver.

I wanted to include a Man City midfielder in my selection, and it’s between Jack Grealish and Phil Foden for me. While I think Grealish is more sure of a start, to me, Foden looks more threatening and more likely to deliver FPL returns. We’ve been waiting for Foden’s real “breakout” season in FPL, and I do wonder if we are seeing the beginning of it now.

Up front, Romelu Lukaku will be confident of getting a goal against newly-promoted Brentford, however, I don’t think this will be an easy game for Chelsea based on what I’ve seen of the Bees so far this season. In an incredible turn of events, it may be Neal Maupay who ends up as the pick of the strikers, and the in-form Seagull will fancy his chances against an out of sorts team of Canaries. With Manchester United still trying to get the most out of their new additions, Cristiano Ronaldo falls some way down my list – with the in-form Michail Antonio looking good in any match he plays in – and under-the-radar pick Jamie Vardy up against a patched-up United backline that won’t feature either Varane or Maguire.

SAM SAID

There is a pool of teams this weekend who look set to be great investments at both ends of the pitch.

Brighton face a Norwich side who, alongside Newcastle, have conceded more goals than anyone else. This bodes well for the Albion attack and Neal Maupay has been in good form, registering five attempts in the last two Gameweeks – two inside the box and one big chance. Alongside Maupay, Robert Sanchez also looks a great pick as Norwich have scored the fewest goals in the league so far, registering just two.

Like Brighton, Manchester City have a great match-up at both ends of the pitch. The last four fixtures against Burnley at home have finished 5-0 and therefore Ederson, Joao Cancelo and Phil Foden all look like fantastic options. With attacking potential as well as a good opportunity for a clean sheet, Cancelo seems the perfect pick this week. Foden, meanwhile, has the highest xG and xGI for Man City midfielders over the last two Gameweeks and merits the attention he is getting from FPL managers.

Alongside Brighton and Man City, Liverpool have a great fixture following the international break. With the news that Trent Alexander-Arnold is available for the weekend, he will likely be an important pick for the Gameweek with good potential for a clean sheet and attacking returns. Mohamed Salah’s highest ever FPL return came against Watford in the 2018/19 season and with his current form, he feels like a player you can’t afford not to own.

Chelsea also fit into this ‘great fixture on paper’ category, although I do expect their clash with Brentford to be harder than it seems on the ticker. With doubts surrounding Antonio Rudiger, I’m going with Cesar Azpilecueta to be safe and he is on good form following his brace of assists in Gameweek 7. With Thomas Tuchel’s comments about Mason Mount and Romelu Lukaku’s understanding, they both make my picks; hopefully, Lukaku will have recovered from the muscle fatigue that saw him miss out on Belgium’s third place play-off match in the Nations League.

I also fancy the Spurs attackers to finally find their feet and capitalise on a wobbly Newcastle defence who are yet to keep a clean sheet this season, hence both Son Heung-min and Harry Kane make my picks. If you want a real differential captain, one of these two could provide a huge boost.

TOM SAID…

Manchester City host Burnley on Saturday afternoon, having won each of their last four Etihad encounters against the Clarets’ 5-0. As usual, identifying exactly who will start isn’t straightforward, but given the upside, tripling-up feels like a risk worth taking. At the back, I’ve opted for Joao Cancelo over Ruben Dias, though both defenders are equally good picks, while further forward I’m tipping Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden. Both midfielders opened their 2021/22 Premier League accounts in Gameweek 7, and head into this fixture as real differentials, with ownerships of just 2.1% and 2.0% respectively.

Meanwhile, high-flying Brighton and Hove Albion have lost just one of their opening seven matches, and look a good team for bargain hunting this week. Their opponents – Norwich City – have scored just one goal from open play and sit bottom for shots in the box, efforts on target and big chances. That leads me to a defensive double-up via Robert Sanchez and Joel Veltman, with the defender hopefully in a wing-back role and therefore attacking the Canaries’ weaker left-flank. I’ve also found a spot for Neal Maupay up front, who has already netted four Premier League goals this season.

Arsenal also supply three picks: Aaron RamsdaleKieran Tierney and Bukayo Saka. The Gunners have taken 10 points from their last four matches, with their new-look defence keeping three clean sheets during that time. Saka has also looked lively on the right wing, bagging a goal and assist, and encouragingly has been taking lots of shots. In fact, amongst all midfielders since Gameweek 4, only Liverpool duo Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane have attempted more. Crystal Palace won’t roll over, but this is a match I see Mikel Arteta’s side dominating.

Elsewhere, Adam Armstrong is one of my top forward picks in Gameweek 8. The 24-year-old has had a relatively slow start since his summer move from Blackburn Rovers, but I see this match against Leeds United suiting him, and I’m more than happy to back him knowing that he might be on penalties in James Ward-Prowse’s absence, too. I also like Son Heung-min, and think opponents Newcastle United could leave space in behind in an attempt to get on the front foot and impress their new owners in the stands.

NEALE SAID

The Scout Squad is the easy part this week, with so many big hitters enjoying favourable fixtures; it’ll be the narrowing down to a starting XI for the budget-restricted Scout Picks that will prove to be the tricky part.

I expect Brighton assets will end up being the cash-freeing enablers in our Friday selection, so I’ll probably have a tough job selling Marc Cucurella when cheaper routes into the Albion defence are available. But the Spaniard was mightily impressive against Arsenal a fortnight ago and he’s accumulating some eye-catching numbers, sitting fourth among FPL defenders for touches in the final third since his debut.

On the subject of gallivanting wing-backs, Matthew Cash is enjoying the freedom of Villa’s right flank since the move to a 3-5-2. Only one defender has had more penalty box touches than Cash since the change in shape, and this weekend he’ll be up against an out-of-sorts Marcal. I’m also yet to be fully convinced that Wolves are over their early-season profligacy, as two goals against a dismal Newcastle defence is hardly Roy of the Rovers stuff.

Four of my five forwards are selected as much for the teams they’ll be facing: Newcastle are clean sheet-less; Spurs have conceded more goals than any other team in the last four Gameweeks; Leicester are a shambles at the back and have allowed more shots in the box than any other side in 2021/22; and Manchester United are down two centre-halves.

Injuries to Patrick Bamford and Raphinha solidify my Tino Livramento selection, while the likely unavailability of right-wing alternatives Gabriel Jesus and Ferran Torres (not that he is to be found in that role much these days) leads me to punt on Gameweek 1 bandwagon Riyad Mahrez for Manchester City’s annual 5-0 humping of Burnley. The Algerian has racked up 46 points across City’s last three home league meetings with the Clarets, scoring six goals in the process.

Finally, with doubts over Antonio Rudiger and Thiago Silva, I’m backing Bryan Mbeumo to continue to deliver the goods when Brentford entertain Chelsea. Seemingly the bigger goal threat than Ivan Toney in games of this magnitude, he ranks third for expected goals (xG) among all FPL midfielders regardless of price – not bad for £5.5m.

    Which GK for 2 weeks until I bring in Raya who I can't own now as I need the .1saving, I currently have 1&2 on WC at 4.5 which is why I can afford them
    A) Ramsdale (CRY, AVL)
    B) Sanchez (nor, MCI)
    C) Guaita (ars, NEW)
    D) McCarthy (LEE, BUR)

    1. AC/DC AFC

      personally, I don't like 2 rotating GK. but if you want to do it, and you definitely want Raya, then the other one should be Ramsdale imo.
      as for the placeholder for Raya, pick the one that most likely will rise in price. imo that will be McCarthy because the fixture

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Sorry should've worded better, they would be first choice and Foster back up. Would go with Raya now but .1 short so will have to wait until I downgrade someone next week to find the funds before the gw10 Burnley fixture for Brentford.

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

      Thanks all, Ramsdale seems to be the one, and might get lucky with a double rise. Although I have Tomiyasu should be fine, Mcca an interesting other choice but have Livra right now also.

  3. b91jh

    On wc...

    A) Ramsdale, TAA, KDB, Toney, Hwang
    B) Raya, TAA, Mahrez, Antonio, Toney
    C) Raya, TAA, Son, Antonio, Hwang
    D) Raya, Walker(or Chilwell), KDB, Antonio, Hwang

    Which to go?

    1. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years

      I like B

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Same here, nice and balanced although Mahrez a very short term pick

        1. b91jh
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Likely to be Mahrez/Antonio to Son/Toney when fixtures turn or when the punt didn't work out, but it would be painful to drop Antonio tho.

          1. b91jh
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 3 days ago

            To Hwang*

        2. NABIL - FPL otai
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Could be a golden one

          1. Thomas Magnum
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 3 days ago

            Absolutely, think he likes playing Burnley as well

            1. NABIL - FPL otai
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 3 days ago

              You know what, I'm still torn between KDB or Mahrez lol

              1. Thomas Magnum
                • 6 Years
                3 months, 3 days ago

                Mahrez for maybe for this one, but KDB for the next 3 and then some

                1. b91jh
                  • 4 Years
                  3 months, 3 days ago

                  KDB looks more nailed but seems always carrying minor injuries after the Euros. Maybe there are possibilities that his minutes will be managed in some 'easy' matches?

      I'm lacking the funds for a defender like Azpilecueta or Rudiger, I need to find someone who is ideally below 5 mil so is it worth going for someone like Reece James despite rotation risk or could I opt for Tierney/White?

    • Nay08
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 3 days ago

      I will WC this week and need help with some questions. any help appreciated
      1.) As Duffy and Veltman now have the same price, who is better for the long term?
      one of them will mainly be bench cover (alongside Livramento and 4.5 Mid)

      2.) who is the better 4.5 Mid? Douglas Luiz, Brownhill, or Norman? (most probably will always be 3rd sub)

      3.) do I put Son right away, or put one MCI Mid for the next 3 GW (and if yes, which one do we think the most nailed?) and put Son after?

      4.) for GK, Raya or Sanchez?
      the one I pick most probably won't be changed until the next WC (probably mid to late second half of the season)

      1. RogDog_jimmy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        My opinion.

        Veltman
        Luiz
        Son
        Raya

      2. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        On 3 no attacking Man City is really nailed.

        They've got 10 viable midfield picks and Jesus in their squad.

        Gundogan when fit, Grealish and Silva most minutes so far.

        I'd punt on Foden.

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          * for this week but not necessarily 3 games! Therein lies the problem.

          Club Brugge 3 days later is the bigger game and Mahrez for example may be rested for that match.

      Given the choice would you rather have Vardy or Ronaldo in your team this weekend?

        Ronaldo

              Same, will probably use it in December...the time where there are like 3 GWs in a span of 9-10 days.

                  So many decided to play it this week.

                  I guess tinkering over the international break was tempting.

      On WC

      A) Raphina, Rudiger
      B) Foden, Jansson

      Does it just come down to attitude to risk? Only got Cancelo in the premium defender bracket but would make sure bench covers Raphina this week (probably Ben White)

            A for sure. IMO Foden is too risky

        better move long term

        Sell:
        a. Rudi -> TAA
        b. Marcal -> Cancelo

        thx

            Trent. I think his stats and ability to create is better value over Cancelo who will most likely miss a game here or there.

              Prefer TAA over Cancelo, but because Rudi is better to keep than Marcal, I choose B

          Raphinha plays 71 minutes for Brazil.

          Who to start out of Raphinha or Livramento?

            I'm starting Raphinha with Livramento first on bench.

            On WC

            Gk - Ramsdale

            Def - Duffy, TAA, Cancelo, Livramento, ???

            Mid - Son, Salah, Mbeumo, Raphinha, Brownhill

            Att - Hwang, Antonio, Lukaku

            I only have 5 mil to fit that defender spot so I'm not sure what to do. I have money tied up in Antonio but if I went for somebody else in his spot I could afford a more desirable defense.

            Should I?

            A) Sell Antonio to get someone like dias/aspi
            B) Keep Antonio and go for another budget defender

              B. You do not sell Antonio. You should realise by now that he is great value and a real points getter.

              Get White at 4.4

                  If you have other transfers to make before this one then wait. If you don't then I would rather get him in this week rather than next.

                  I suspect he can wait a week and save yourself a transfer so that you have two next week.

                What is better?

                Looks like every WC team is on Lukaku.

                You see, there's a reason why he was called Trollkaku in the past.

                Sorry

                  You think he's the same player?

                    Finishing is better but now plays for Tuchel. You get what I mean.

                      I don't actually.

                        • 9 Years
                        3 months, 3 days ago

                        Tuchel doesn't really do 3-0, 4-0. Poor value for his strikers

                          3 months, 3 days ago

                          They've scored 3 goals in 4/7 games and two of the ones they didn't were against City and Liverpool...

                          1. NABIL - FPL otai

                            Yeah I might be wrong. They never look like a free scoring side though, and Trollkaku so far is living up to its name

                    Not in my EPL memory no. He's a bit like Auba, scores when you're not expecting him to. Some say he's a flat track bully, but not really in my eyes

                Some thoughts here?

                1FT and 0.2 ITB.

                Sanchez
                TAA* Rudiger* Christensen
                Salah Jota* Raphinha* Greenwood
                Ronaldo Antonio Armstrong

                (Steele Livramento White Gilmour)

                I am starting to think I might even save FT after IB, pretty happy with bench if needed. Admittedly a couple more flags than pre-IB but think most are likely to play.

                  Yes, save as you have a decent team there. Greenwood is the only one I'd move.

                  A is tempting but Antonio outweighs Armstrong for sure.

                    I didn't see Antonio. Just automatically assumed everyone has him already and regard him as indispensable.

                    I guess that's the beauty of so many picks.

                    Hattrick and goals for Portugal will have helped.

                    Many good players scored over all the international games so let's hope it bangs this weekend!!

                City will play a very similar side to liv (a) when they go to Brugge and Brighton in the next week. This makes think that Burnley really good be wholesale changes. Sterling, Mahrez, Ake, Stones, Fernandinho the only real changes that can be made. Gundo if fit. Leaves 5 spaces still, 2 full backs plus 3 attacking spots, no Torres or Jesus. So just 3 off KdB, Grealish, Foden and Silva?

                  Is Zinch still on the scene, wondering if full backs are the most nailed spots in the peps team this season

                    I was thinking that. They seem nailed. Didn’t a kid play left back in the champ league?

                      Is Walker the under the radar pick?

                        Cancelo could move to RB.

                2. AC/DC AFC
                  • 6 Years
                  3 months, 3 days ago

                  It looks like Pep saves Mahrez for Champions League so far this season.

                  Along with the title that is the trophy he wants most.

                    I enjoyed Andy laughing at Az and Mark on Black Box. He was amused that so much effort was spent on determining a Citeh lineup. They really did go round in square circles.

                    You’re right. He is also a home bully. Perfect for this one.

                  A bold statement mate. You are applying logic when there is a severe lack of it with Pep.

                    I guess I am trying to nullify the real threat to all the key players. Still seems a lottery though as even with some likely to start, picking one is impossible. Annoying, Torres was probably that one.

                      Citeh is probably the only side one hopes for injuries. It reduces the numbers on the roulette table.

                  Yep. No money for Livra? Sarr - not sure about him as WAT looked really poor at Leeds.

                    Sarr will be soon mbeumo. Then i can afford omobami to livra within a fixture or two

                      I think you may as well do that now and save yourself a transfer down the line. Unless of course you see Sarr bagging a hatful v Liverpud.

                  Christensen or James? I'm thinking James might not be as nailed on but thinking of taking a punt.

                    Chris. Saves you money and should play 4/5 games.

                    Personally on James, overlooked by many and has so much upside
