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.

    Is Mbeumo the most mis-spelled player in the history of FPL on here?
    I must have seen at least 10 different spellings.

        Yeah, somehow people can pronounce Ronaldinho, Fernandinho, Fabinho, etc., but then Raphinha trips them up.

      Scarlet

      CR7 - that’s just random letters and a number.

      No, Scmeichel is.

    7. Don Van Vliet

      Still plagued by the ghost of Coutinho when commentators butcher the pronunciation of Firmino (i.e., by adding an erroneous 'h').

    8. SINGH
      • 3 Years

      Anyone remember that guy Yohan Kebab at Newcastle?

      1. 1984 TC
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 5 days ago

        No, sorry

        1. SINGH
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          No way. It was actually Yohan Cabaye but the manager at the time said Yohan Kebab looool

            That was Joe F-F-F- Kinnear. Called another player and insulting name and caused him to leave the club.

            1. SINGH
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              That's the one, Joe Kinnear. Yeah I recall there were other players names he butchered.

    Was wondering who AZ & Gianni are on here, name wise??

    1. GreennRed

      Alfredo Zanetti and Versace.

      1. BrockLanders

    Pick one:
    A) Azpi > Chilwell
    B) Raphinha > Son
    C) Mbeumo > Son
    D) ESR > Son

    1. Bertonian

      Anyone but A

  4. OneDennisBergkamp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Ben Johnson £3.9m - any good?

    1. Pep's Money Laundry
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I wouldn't waste a defensive spot when there was too many good defenders available to pick from. Besides Johnson is only covering until coufal returns

    2. Bertonian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Coufal fit so no

  5. MikeS
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Man United should replace the incompetent OGS with the even more incompetent former club legend, fat pie man Rooney as their new manager.. so he can do even more damage..

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Or Bruce, or Keane, or either Neville, or Hughes, or Robson, or Ince... oh, I think I see a pattern.

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Or Giggs, or Scholars, or more realistically Phelan or Carrick...

        In contrast, Mark Robins has had a decent managerial carer in the EFL...

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Scholes

    2. Scholes Out For Summer
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Nothing wrong with a good pie

  6. Norco
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Exact money for a -8:
    Vardy Gallagher Raphinha OUT
    Hwang Son Foden IN

    Or stick with a -4:
    Vardy + Gallagher OUT
    Toney + Son/Foden IN

    1. MikeS
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I prefer the -8

    2. Bertonian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Hwang will dry up imo so would go the -4 out of those

      1. Norco
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Thanks. Do you think Jimenez is also a risk moving forward?

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Two of your outs could be fit and one of your ins could be on Pep's naughty step...

    4. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Like the minus 8

  7. MountainBeach
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    How's this looking for the week?

    Foster,
    Rudiger, TAA. Coady
    Foden, Salah, Benny, Saka
    Antonio Kane Jimenez

    Sanchez, Allan, White, Williams

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Ok, I'd say

      1. MountainBeach
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Wanna get Cancelo, but gonna have to downgrade one of the strikers

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          I assume you only got Kane recently, but I'd be mined to lose him.

          1. Fulchester's New Centr…
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Minded

          2. MountainBeach
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Yup, just got him. He's got some solid fixtures coming up, so I'd like to hold on a little.

            1. Fulchester's New Centr…
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              Jim to Hwang or young lad at Soton then?

              1. MountainBeach
                • 9 Years
                1 month, 5 days ago

                Jimi to Hwang I'm definitely considering..Jimi has gotten a return every week for me since I've gotten him tho. Antonio doesn't have great fixtures either. Do you think I should prioritize Cancelo over a striker?

                1. Fulchester's New Centr…
                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 5 days ago

                  Antonio is still undervalued I'd say, but City Def worth tapping into too. 433 not appeal?

  8. Albrightondknight
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Is Fernandez nailed to start with Raya out? Could they get a transfer exception with 2 injured keepers?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Looks like, he played for Spain recentlyish so presumably not terrible.
      Gunnarson is out on loan.

    2. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Yeah think so - read he was meant to be a replacement for Raya anyway who they might sell? Played for the national team (I think a bit through luck) and last season in La Liga, so he's not a nobody.

    3. potatoace
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Yes he is.. and he's good.
      Young and gifted apparently.
      Brentford spent all summer trying to get him. I think long term he's their first choice anyway.

      I guess that's why hes 4.5m

    4. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Thanks all I appreciate the replies - going to go for this move so.

      1. 1984 TC
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Don’t do it. Thanks for listening to me Sir.

        1. Albrightondknight
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Reasons why not ?
          I don’t like the options of Sanchez, Ramsdale McCarthy etc and I don’t have Foster so I have to do something.
          Ramsdale also has a little risk of a Leno return and I don’t want to end up without a playing keeper again.

  9. Iceball
    • 7 Years

    Ramsdale
    TAA Chilwell Cancelo
    Salah(C) Foden Raphina Mbeumo
    Kane Antonio(V) Toney
    Foster Livramento White Brownhill
    No ft, 0,8 itb. GTG or anything worth a hit?

    1. MikeS
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Solid team

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Good enough, as you know

  10. BrockLanders
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Would you start Marcal (home to Everton) or Gallagher (away to City) this weekend?

    1. Belli2007
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Marcal probably as I could see that being 0-0 although is he not injured?

      1. BrockLanders
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Hope not. Goodness, that would be just my luck

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Yellow flagged. Calf injury.75% chance of playing.

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Start Marcal and let Lange pick your team for you.

  11. waldo666
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Armstrong and Greenwood to Broja and Foden?

    1. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Maybe for free

      1. waldo666
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        It's for free, doesn't have to be Broja, can go up to 7.5 for the striker position.

    2. Pep's Money Laundry
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Yes definitely as long as broja is fit

      1. waldo666
        • 11 Years

        Cheers.

    3. 1984 TC

      ONLY if you are playing your free hit. Otherwise, no way Hose!

    4. isthoralive

        Yep double upgrade

    5. FCSB
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Ramsdale
      TAA Cancelo James
      Salah Foden Mbeumo Raphinha
      Vardy Antonio Jimenez

      Foster Livramento Brownhill Duffy

      1FT, 1.5 itb

      How's this looking ?

      1. waldo666
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Looks good if all fit but in saying that, Livramento is more than a handy option off the bench.

        1. FCSB
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Would you switch James >> Chilwell to a bit extra security?

          1. waldo666
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Potentially but if Vardy and Mbeumo are passed fit to start I think I would probably leave it.

    6. OneDennisBergkamp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      what makes Chilwell better pick than James?

      1. FCSB
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        well James played full game midweek and Azpi likely fit... and Chilwell was relatively rested midweek

        1. OneDennisBergkamp
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          ah cheers!

      2. Scholes Out For Summer
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Chilwell almost never comes on if benched, James always gets some minutes

          Exactly I would rather that 1 point appearance than no points

    7. Ibralicious

      1 month, 5 days ago

      Better move?

      A) Raphinha -> Mount (FT) (exact cash)
      B) Raphinha + Vardy -> Foden + Antonio (-4)

      Cheers!

        Don't like either, just keep Raph, looks more likely than not that he will play.

        Sanchez or Guaita on wildcard?

        1. waldo666
          • 11 Years

          Sanchez

        2. GREEN JUMPERS
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Sanchez

        3. The Riders of Mohan
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Sanchez for me. But, both have good fixtures after this week.
          Sanchez 4.6 over Guaita 4.5 so you could save 0.1 for a rainy day.

          I sold for Toney this week but mostly for the $ to go bigger at the back and Son in 12. I don't think he's a horrible call this week if you don't need the money. Not really value right now.

          If you didn’t sell against Liverpool, no reason to sell with spurs and watford in next 3

      5. PastaConcerto
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Would you take a hit to get a Chelsea defender in this week? Have Dias, TAA, Livra, Marcal, Duffy...Sa and Sanchez keeper. Keep missing out on Chelsea clean sheets and defender attacking returns. I can get Chilwell or Rudiger...6.2 ITB.

        1. TheSteel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Yeah id take hit for that.

          1. PastaConcerto
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Thanks...I think the time is right for getting to that setup.
            Chilwell or Rudiger?

            1. TheSteel
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              Id go Rudiger to be safe. Pay off the hit asap, plus he contributes offensively.

              1. PastaConcerto
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 5 days ago

                Yeah, rival has Rudiger so that would be the safer way to go but of course Chilwell the bigger upside.

            2. svgcr
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              Chilwell 100%.
              Didn’t start midweek and is more likely to make the hit worth it.
              Rudiger is likely a yellow card away to not even getting you the -4 back.

              1. PastaConcerto
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 5 days ago

                Good call....I did go Chilwell for those very reasons.

        2. Pops15
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Theres no way I would get Rudi over Chilwell at this point. Chilly has started 3 and scored in all 3. He has played his way into being first choice. Yes he could be rotated the occasional game but his attacking upside is far greater then the reliability of 6 points from Rudi each week. Plus this week Chilwell looks a sure starter as he only played 20 min in the cup game and Alonso getting 90.

          1. PastaConcerto
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Thanks, agreed.

        3. isthoralive
            1 month, 5 days ago

            With the other defenders you have I’d go Chillwell, if he gets rested you have great bench cover, his ceiling is much higher due to goals/assists and higher baps potential

            1. PastaConcerto
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              Agreed, I have confidence in my subs to come in and cover the odd benching. Worth the gamble I think.

          Tierney & Davis > White & Toney (-4)

          or

          Tierney > Chilwell (keep Davis fodder)

          Alonso to Chilwell (-4)? Wanted to wait, but may be priced out for at least several weeks

          1. 1984 TC

          1 month, 5 days ago

          Foden is a hoax.

          There are at least 5 City players competing for their front 3 positions
          Foden, Grealish, Jesus, Sterling and Mahrez.

          Not to mention that De Bruyne and Gundogan can and have played their extensively in the past.

          And the fact Palmer or another youngster could get game time.

          Or the fact Torres will be back in December/January, or City could sign another striker in January.

          Pep is going to continue to rotate all season.

          Foden doesn't have any real goalscoring or predatory instincts. He likes a shot from the edge of the box on his left foot but he rarely scores. His two goals against Brighton were both essentially a fluke.

          Is he a good player? Of course he's a bloody good player. But great performances don't translate into fantasy points. Avoid him and Pep Roulette and don't fall into this latest hoax

            If he's a hoax I need more of them. He's got me 18pts since I brought him in.

              Yeah, 170 points since the start of last season in just 1981 minutes. "Don't translate into fantasy points?"

            • 6 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Mahrez and Sterling are hardly first choice currently. Why would you shift Foden for any other youngster and why would you drag KdB and Gundo from midfield if your forwards are fit and in form. Will be rotated? Yes but he will give points too. Hardly a hoax.

          4. GREEN JUMPERS
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Thinking Foden is good value. He won't play every week, but they'll be more double-digit scores I reckon

            This is pure opinion and no facts to back this up.
            It’s not a forever move but whilst Torres is out and Sterling on the outer it’s a great way into the city attack.

            Us owners will continue to enjoy his hoax points

            January? What lol?
            That’s 12 GWs and a wild card away.
            Get him while in form and starting games.

          Help boys. I'd like you to play one of:

                Risers: Toney (6.6) Cancelo (6.4) James (5.6)

                Fallers: Sterling (10.6) Pogba (7.5) Pépé (7.0) Digne (5.2) Coufal (4.8) Tella (4.7)

                  Noo not Toney. Was hoping I could wait till next week to get him in. James rise is nice but I'm very worried of a benching and cameo appearance this week. Stupid Tuchel!

                    ya… this whole situation with Azpi is frustrating. I would (like you) feel better if James was rested today.

                  Toney has blanked in each of the last 3 GWs yet has risen 0.3 during that period

                  1. A Fat Spanish Waiter

                    • 7 Years
                    1 month, 5 days ago

                    I watched two of those games. He should have scored in both and he looks capable of making assists to mbuemo, who has hit the woodwork 6 times this season!

                  2. Amartey Partey

                    Blast. Was hoping to get James, but with questions over Vardy, Mbueno, White, and owning A.Armstrong and Townsend, and Duffy having City away, think my one FT may be needed elsewhere.

                    Sterling to Newcastle would be a good fit

                    He can play every game, score 20 chances, miss the other 200,and everything's back to normal

                      4.5 at this point. 2 clean sheets in 9, 2 scores of -1 and no attacking returns. He's been absoutley atrocious from a fantasy standpoint this season.

                      He may become an option if Everton can get it together, but I don’t see it happening over the near term. It’s a long season though, so never say never.

                        Gianni probably is.

                        'Az' is short for 'Chaz', an Americanized version of Charles, if you're going by their names. Don't think he's any more American than he is Italian though.

                        What are the chances KDB will start?

                          Is there some reason he wouldn’t start? He is the class of that team, which is saying a lot, actually.

                              Didn't start last GW. It was obvious though since i transferred him in then 😀

                            Excellent chances

                              Minor played midweek and Bernardo is preferred in middle

                              James to Chilwell if no other issues?

                                I wouldn't.

                                  Could get both but would bench a decent attacker most weeks.

                                    It's a good headache to have specially this year since we have lots of money itb.. . I would double up and Rotate 4th defender with mbuemo and Raphinha (injuries and brazil game etc..).

                                      Cheers, think Raphinha won't be lasting long

                              Who to start in goal this week?

                              A) Ramsdale (lei)
                              B) Foster (SOT)

                              Ramsdale has been a poor pick on my WC so far and he has the tougher game, but then Foster plays for leaky old Watford.

                                Foster if Vardy starts.

                                Lol Southampton are going to score. Even with Vardy I don't see Leicester scoring.

                                hope you started Ramsdale as per my advice
