Scout Squad

The Scout Squad’s best FPL players for Gameweek 10

The best Fantasy Premier League (FPL) goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders and forwards for Gameweek 10 are discussed 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 propose an 18-man long-list of Fantasy players, explaining their notable inclusions and omissions in the article below.

The Scout Squad 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

After a chaotic Gameweek 9, I’m not anticipating things slowing down this weekend, with in-form Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea all enjoying decent games on paper. Not that it seems to matter at this point, given the disparity between these clubs and the rest of the league this season.

I’m still favouring the premium defensive triple up of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joao Cancelo and Antonio Rudiger, and think it will be a tough ask for Brighton, Palace or Newcastle to breach these defences. Rudiger looks a certain starter after having some time off in midweek, and Tino Livramento is off the mark now, knocking on the door for a start for many of us FPL managers.

In midfield, I’ve adopted a similar strategy to my defensive picks with Mohamed Salah, Phil Foden and Kai Havertz my go-to options to tap into the attacks of the terrific trio. I’m also hoping Bryan Mbeumo can shake off his minor hamstring to be fit for Burnley, and I’m backing Spurs to pile more pressure on Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, with Son Heung-min the main man in attack.

Up front, I’ll be keeping my eye on the Jamie Vardy news – a lengthy lay-off and Patson Daka could be a superb differential given his recent form. I’m also backing the budget options in Joe Geldhart and Armando Broja, who have come into their respective sides and done a great job.

SAM SAID

Why Duffy was benched and Foden’s fine form: FPL notes from Brighton v Man City 7

With Chelsea, Man City and Liverpool all having great fixtures on paper this week, it makes sense to invest heavily in those teams. Mohamed Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold are essentials, in my view, so they make my picks alongside the Man CIty duo of Joao Cancelo and Phil Foden and a Chelsea triple-up of Edouard Mendy, Ben Chilwell and Mason Mount.

Outside of those games, Marcelo Bielsa seemed to suggest that Raphinha should be ok for the weekend and with Leeds playing Norwich, even though they are not in the best form themselves, he seems like a great option. With Patrick Bamford still out injured, Rodrigo up top could be a decent option, especially after his penalty goal last week. And given Norwich’s lack of attacking threat, Illan Meslier looks to be a great goalkeeper pick for Gameweek 10.

With David Raya out for four to five months and Alvaro Fernandez likely to make his Premier League debut, I have some concerns about Brentford’s clean sheet potential, therefore Maxwel Cornet could be a nice differential for the weekend.

With so much rumour and uncertainty around Manchester United at the moment, I am expecting both sides to be nervous at the weekend and that might just give Harry Kane the space he needs to attack well and turn his season around, so he makes my picks.

TOM SAID

The Rudiger injury latest as Lukaku's FPL appeal 3

Chelsea have now kept 17 Premier League clean sheets since Thomas Tuchel took charge, at least three more than any other side, and though it’s sometimes hard to pinpoint exactly which of their wing-backs will be handed successive starts, it feels like a risk worth taking given their points potential. This week, I’ve opted for Ben Chilwell, who has now scored in three successive league appearances for the Blues, and paired him with the excellent Edouard Mendy and Kai Havertz, who I’m tipping to deliver.

Meanwhile, Brentford have had an encouraging start to life in the Premier League and look a good team for bargain hunting this week. Their opponents Burnley have been poor so far and are still searching for their first win. As a result, they unsurprisingly rank 19th for expected goals (xG), and 17th for expected goals conceded (xGC). That leads me to Rico Henry at the back, plus Bryan Mbeumo and Ivan Toney further forward, providing the former is passed fit of course.

Elsewhere, West Ham United supply two picks, Kurt Zouma and Michail Antonio, with Aston Villa’s ongoing issues defending set pieces in my thoughts. With that in mind, the last team you want to face is David Moyes’ Hammers, whose approach is largely based around crossing. Antonio will also ask plenty of questions of Tyrone Mings, having bagged his sixth Premier League goal of the campaign on Sunday.

After being completely outclassed by Liverpool in Gameweek 9, Manchester United will be low on confidence, especially defensively, which could be good news for Tottenham Hotspur duo Son Heung-min and Harry Kane this weekend. Both players struggled to make an impact last time out, but I think this match will be a more entertaining, open affair, as it was last season, with the attacking players benefitting most.

NEALE SAID

Just as FPL squads are starting to form around a core of Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool assets, the Scout Picks will surely be doing similar for the foreseeable future.

State-the-bleeding-obvious selections from these clubs abound, as they have to if we’re honestly picking out who we think will excel in the upcoming Gameweek, but it’s worth perhaps explaining my own preference for Aymeric Laporte and Kai Havertz this time.

I’m again looking at opposition weaknesses here, with Crystal Palace actually a rather tight defensive unit other than possessing an Achilles heel at dead-ball situations. The match at Anfield was the perfect example of this, with all three of Liverpool’s goals coming from corners or free-kicks. In fact, the Eagles have the second-best expected goals conceded (xGC) from open play in 2021/22 – and the joint-worst xGC from set plays. Laporte, second among FPL defenders for shots in the box this season, gets my vote, although we could easily switch to Ruben Dias if the EFL Cup teamsheets suggest a benching for the Spain international on Saturday.

My selection of Havertz may have a whiff of “don’t back down, double down” about it after Gameweek 9 but Crystal Palace’s aerially mobile attacking spearhead, Christian Benteke, caused havoc among the Newcastle backline last week, racking up seven attempts – four of them from inside or just outside the six-yard box. The Magpies have conceded seven goals from fewer than six yards out this season and these are more Havertz areas than Mount territory, so I’m backing the much-maligned German despite his Norwich blank. Mount, incidentally, has only delivered one attacking return or fewer in 76 of his 80 Chelsea league appearances, so he tends not to make a habit of explosive hauls.

Brentford’s aerial dominance and Burnley’s surprising concession of multiple headed goal attempts (only Leicester have allowed more) leads me to the vertically talented double-up of Ivan Toney and Pontus Jansson, the latter of whom has had three big chances in just the last four Gameweeks.

Max Kilman has matched Romain Saiss for efforts in the box this season, meanwhile, so with Rafael Benitez’s zonal marking system exposed against Watford, and with Wolves much less gung-ho than they were at the season’s start, I’m edging towards a low-scoring home win at Molineux in the Monday night game. Rayan Ait-Nouri would be my preferred selection but with Marcal set to return from injury, there’s too much uncertainty at left wing-back.

The Hornets are still without a clean sheet in 2021/22, so I’ve gone with two possible routes into the Southampton attack in my picks. Armando Broja is grabbing all the headlines with his two goals in as many Gameweeks but his strike partner, the out of position Nathan Redmond, has racked up more shots and key passes (nine of each) in that time and also gets my nomination.

    If Mbeumo was out I could happily do Mbeumo > Foden, then sell Raphinha for Mbeumo next week if back...

    Feels a bit risky moving on any of Jota/Raphinha/Mbeumo in the meantime...

      playing devils advocate, Foden matched Mbeumo's season output, in one game

        No devil about it, if he isn't in this week he's in the next. Just wanting to make the most out of the fixtures.

    Sorry bottomed from previous.

    Thoughts on this move, silly billy or heck yeah

    A. Vardy > Toney

    My other two front men are Jimenez and Ant Man

    Conscious that Toney will rise in price tonight.

          Far too much emphasis on price changes IMHO. Don't gamble based on them. Team value is like the stock market, you have to look at the long term, not the day-to-day ups and downs.

    Might take a little break from FPL till pressers. Have 5 flagged, and don't even know what to do this week till I know the situation of the fantastic five. Can't even potentially plan moves for so many different possibilities so early, though feel Raphinha and Christensen will most probably be fit for the weekend.

    1. NateDog

      Pressers will start tomorrow anyway but yeah, hold off on any changes until at least tomorrow in case any of those you have flagged are featured

    Sick of these casuals causing early price changes every week. Can a popular influencer tweet to them to wait till pressers?

      Blaming casuals is so casual 😛

    4. NateDog

      I honestly thought that price changes would slow a bit after a few weeks (after a glut of activity for the first few) but no real sign of things changing, but I guess Salah's big haul against a "big team" and the likes of mid-priced options like Mount and Foden landing big hauls show that it isn't changing

      Won't be long until he is telling them all to sell Raphinha.

      Where is it in the rules that you can’t do transfers until the, sanctimonious, Twitter-sphere deems it acceptable?

      That is more dedication than I am intending to commit to this game. I must be a casual.

      Think I want to keep Ronaldo but moving him gives a lot of room to get Son, Tooney, Chilwel,..

      Any tips?

        Ronny's last 5: 6,2,1,2,1. Why do you want to keep such an expensive player with that output?

        1. Tshelby
          • 7 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          Because it's Ronaldo I guess? Still one of the best players in the world so I think he could easily score two or more goals against Spurs. His output wasn't bad in those Champions League games. I'm just really undecided

        2. Sun Jihai
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          Probably the lack of alternatives in the premium department

          Lukaku injured
          KDB rotation headache (predicted to start in EFL cup tonight)
          Vardy injured
          Bruno - same Man Utd issues
          Mane I like as a differential but is missing a lot of chances still
          Sterling - lol

          1. Tshelby
            • 7 Years
            8 months, 10 days ago

            What do you think about Kane or Son? Maybe Jesus?

            1. Sun Jihai
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              8 months, 10 days ago

              Yeah forgot the Spurs guys. Son I like but Kane's difficult to pick over him at this stage given the price difference and fact that Son looks more advanced, has better stats almost across the board and has been involved in 2/3 of Spurs goals this season.

              Really not sure how to call the Spurs Man Utd game, both teams not in form!

              1. Nomar
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 12 Years
                8 months, 10 days ago

                Fancy Spurs at home to do some damage to a fragile United team.

                Also depends if Solskjaer has lost the dressing room. If he has then United won’t be putting up much resistance.

                I actually think Kane is going to do well in this game.

                1. Sun Jihai
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 10 Years
                  8 months, 10 days ago

                  Yeah going to be interesting.
                  On Redcafe a lot of fans seem to be calling for Ronaldo to be dropped actually and Cavani to start.

                    I wouldn't pay too much attention to RedCafe - they had a 211 page thread on which club they should support next last season.

        Don't see the point in United players at the moment. Form and fixtures aren't there at the moment

      Kane's a tough sell this week.

          • 4 Years

          Oh I don't own him. I mean I'd struggle to justify buying him. Too much juggling.

          1. Nice to Finally Michu
            • 8 Years
            8 months, 10 days ago

            Ah got it. Yeah I’m not sure I’d bring in Kane for this one either. Sure he could Nick a goal but I’d be surprised by a haul

        2. Nezkeys79

          Not worth selling with the fixtures turn in GW12 unless you have lost faith

        4. Arteta
          • 6 Years

          "Tough sell" can be a vertigo-inducing phrase 🙂

      2. Nice to Finally Michu
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        If they would immediately be your best defender (Semedo second best) and you needed them to start each week…
        Would you bring in Chilwell or Rudiger?

        1. Tshelby
          • 7 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          I think Rudiger is more nailed but Chilwell celling is higher imo. So I would get Chilwell

        2. Tonyawesome69
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          Take advantage of Chilwell's form and ensure you have bench cover

            Cheers all three of you I think that’s probably the right call it just frightens me that Alonso might be lurking in the wings with weaker teams up ahead for CFC

            1. Ze_Austin
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              8 months, 10 days ago

              If this was the case with Alonso, he'd have started vs Norwich

              That's how it was last season: everybody rotated. That's not how Tuchel is treating them this season: clear first choice back 5 of Reece Azpi T.Silva Rudiger Chilwell. The only blip, as things stand, will be a random rest like Dias in GW8

          3. Ze_Austin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 10 days ago

            Still Chilwell

            Now that I have Chilwell, I'm considering losing Rudiger for Mbeumo in GW11, instead of GW12. Mbeumo vs Norwich could be monstrous if fit, and then the run continues until I lose him for Cresswell in GW18 or so

            TAA Cancelo Chilwell is now non-negotiable for me. I'll take the rotation when it comes, but they've each proven themselves to be the clear first choice for their managers and FPL managers as well

          4. AC/DC AFC
            • 6 Years
            8 months, 10 days ago

            Yes, if Semedo was my second best pick in defense.

              • 6 Years
              8 months, 10 days ago

              Apologies, Chilwell then Rudiger or both?

          Havertz hangover hasn't subsided even on a free hit then?

          Be interesting to see if Kai can pull it back...

          As per Scout Selections above.

            Curious how Mount hasn't earned a shout.

            He scored the game before and the game after

            I'm one of those who advised against getting him for hits or capping him, but I still believe he's way up there as an asset until Lukaku and/or Werner are back

            The sales and boycotting for GW10 feel as reactive as the GW9 caps

            1. AC/DC AFC

              It's a conundrum. He showed in the Champions League he can be instrumental.

              I can see Champions League and EFL cup success sliced into EPL/FPL blanks!

            Havertz hat-trick and Mount blank against Newcastle would be funny.

              Havertz and Mount blanks … and hat-trick CHO would be even funnier.

          Foden in for:

          A) Gray WOL
          B) Mbeumo - flagged

            A

        5. Arteta
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          My defence is Cancelo, Dias, Rüdiger, Tierney and Livramento. I wanna sell KT because he's just too injury prone and not performing at all.

          The best replacement - TAA or Chilwell?

          1. Little Red Lacazette

          Best budget replacement for Ronaldo?
          Looking at Hwang/Toney/King

          Will not necessarily play any every week but it frees up money to get rid of Gallagher and others in my midfield

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • 6 Years
            8 months, 10 days ago

            King's stats are like one in every 5 or 6 games a goal iirc, or a goal every 0.2 matches.

            If only he had a point to prove at Goodison every week!

            1. AC/DC AFC
              • 6 Years

          Anyone else stuck with Bruno? Always other fires to put out... He's gone for Son in GW12 the latest.

          1. FOO FIGHTER

            Get rid until the new manager arrives.

          This was fantastically bad:

          Top 10K The Worst Active Team for GW9 is William Jahren⁩⁩'s 'FC BREMSESPOR', which scored net 22 points on Freehit. His GW8 team would have scored 81 points OR: 5,889 -> 488,815

          No love for KdB here? Seems like a great differential at the moment, being rested last game.

          1. FOO FIGHTER
            • 2 Years
            8 months, 10 days ago

            Too expensive.

            Tielemans better option.

          2. Sun Jihai
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            8 months, 10 days ago

            All the predicted line-ups I've seen from the press have him starting tonight. Tough to go with him over Foden given the price difference.

            1. The Big Larsbowski
              • 2 Years
              8 months, 10 days ago

              KdB is one of the secure starters in City. Foden is way to unpredictible for me. Tielemans is a good pick, but one does not exclude the other. But maybe Mané is better in that range.

              1. FOO FIGHTER
                • 2 Years
                8 months, 10 days ago

                Torres out long term, Sterling sold himself to the rest of Europe and cooked his goose.

                Foden is City's false 9 from now on.

              2. Sun Jihai
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                8 months, 10 days ago

                Yeah, I do reckon KDB will mostly start now he's had a rest but still it's Pep (think most expected him to start last GW too). With Torres out, Foden looks well positioned, particularly if rested tonight.

                Mane is more interesting as a premium differential IMO particularly now he's had a rest. Still the league leader in npXG and in a real in-form Liverpool team where having Salah alone is not really going to differentiate you given he will likely have 170%+ EO from here on.

            2. Echoes
              • 1 Year
              8 months, 10 days ago

              Already have KDB and might bring in Foden for a double up this week, before doing KDB -> Son in 11 or 12.

        11. House Frey Wedding Planner
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          Ramsdale, (Foster)
          TAA, Laporte, Cancelo, Livramento, (Duffy)
          Salah, Foden, Havertz, Raphinha, (Luiz)
          Vardy, Antonio, (Armstrong)

          1FT, 0.4 itb

          What's the best move this week:

          a) Armstrong to Hwang and bench Livra
          b) Roll transfer
          c )Vardy + Duffy to Toney + Chilwell (-4)

          Wary of Chilwell and Toney rising and both seem good long term picks.

          1. Ayzay112728
            • 1 Year

            Roll the transfer, that’s a good looking squad, wouldn’t worry that much about price change to take a hit

          So annoying!

          £0.1m short of Benrahma and Ronaldo to Foden and Kane for free.

          Grrrrrr!

          Foden seems the one to go for, then?

            8 months, 10 days ago

            Meh.

            Raya was is the glue for Brentford.

            Not sure if they will keep up their good defensive work with him out. Pinnock another crucial player also an injury doubt.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            8 months, 10 days ago

            No standouts really

            Do think Fernandez looks a good shout as he's meant to be decent as a GK and fixtures are great

            McCarthy has solid fixtures but most have Livramento so not sure you want to double up

            For Sanchez, Brighton fixtures are ok after this GW where you can hopefully play Foster instead

            Not much screaming out is there.

            That is why Vardy being fit is so important 🙂

              Excactly.

              Thinking maby Toney, Nacho, Wilson

                Vardy and 2 budgets. Midfield options far better. Blankaku, Ronaldo just a bottomles pit.

                Toney has not hit any high numbers. Would rather have Hwang tbh.

            Hwang
            Playing with Jimenez is usually a good sign for a forward
            EVE, CRY, NOR, BUR in the next 5 and cheap as chips

          Anyone an athletic subscriber?

          I’m just reading the article on the Icelandic football players, the Iceland football association and the accusations. Absolutely horrific and shocking at the same time. I had absolutely no idea about this beforehand
