Scout Squad

The Scout Squad’s best FPL players for Gameweek 13

The best Fantasy Premier League (FPL) goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders and forwards for Gameweek 13 are discussed and 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 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 ahead of Saturday’s deadline.

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

How Spurs' FPL assets fared against Leeds in Gameweek 12 2

It’s hard to imagine a time when I didn’t pick Trent Alexander-Arnold, Reece James and Joao Cancelo as these three heavy-hitting defenders continue to deliver the goods week in, week out. WIth Ben Chilwell likely injured for the foreseeable future, a spot for a holy trinity challenger to emerge has become available. Given what I’ve seen so far, Sergio Reguilon looks the most likely to factor into any plans for four at the back. He has four shots in the box over Antonio Conte’s two Premier League games in charge, with an expected goal involvement (xGI) of 1.14, trumping the likes of Chilwell, James and Cancelo over this period.

In midfield, the best options appear to be from a fairly shallow pool. Arsenal attackers will be licking their lips against a Newcastle team who threw caution to the wind in their efforts against Brentford last weekend. In their last four home matches, the Gunners have a chance every 5.9 mins, bettered only by Chelsea (5.2) and Leeds (5.4). I’m backing on Emile Smith Rowe emerging from this game with some returns, and he’s still my attacker of choice from north London.

Up front, may we finally reach a turning point for strikers? Last week, we saw Raul Jiménez and Ivan Toney deliver, and both make the cut on my selection this week. Premium picks of Harry Kane, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Jamie Vardy all also enter into my thinking, despite being very off form. Encounters against Burnley, Watford and Newcastle respectively, who have no clean sheets between them in the last four games, do at least bode well.

SAM SAID

Lukaku on target as Chelsea assets prosper at Arsenal 4

There are wing-backs galore in my picks this week. The rise of the gung-ho defenders has been brilliant for us as FPL managers as we have not for a long time had a group of players who are just as likely to return attacking points as well as defensive ones – maybe even both! Reece James has avoided a blank every week since Gameweek 9, scoring 53 points in that period, while Joao Cancelo has registered more shots on target than any other Man City player so far this season. Trent Alexander-Arnold is potentially captainable this weekend, meanwhile, having registered returns in six of his eight Premier League matches against Southampton. In those six fixtures, he has two assists, four bonus points and five clean sheets. On top of this, he has three double-digit hauls in the last four Gameweeks and so is in excellent form.

In midfield, Mohamed Salah is obviously my first choice and will likely be the most captained asset this weekend. Salah averages 8.75 points per match when he plays against Southampton and like Alexander-Arnold, has returned in six of the last eight fixtures against the Saints that he has been a part of. He also has three double-digit hauls in those eight matches. Teammate Sadio Mane isn’t far behind though with returns in four of his last six games in the Premier League as well as having recorded two double-digit hauls in his last three Premier League appearances against Southampton.

I also expect Emile Smith Rowe to have a good game this weekend. Newcastle showed signs of improvement in their first match under Eddie Howe but Arsenal will want to bounce back from their defeat to Liverpool and Smith Rowe is a key player in the Arsenal attack.

Harry Kane‘s record against Burnley is ridiculously good. He has returned in all of his last six Premier League matches against the Clarets, recording seven goals, three assists and eight bonus points in that period. On average, he scores 7.10 points per match against Burnley.

Finally, Ollie Watkins has returned in four of the last six Gameweeks and is top for touches in the final third (136) for forwards over the last six Gameweeks, 13 more than second-placed Harry Kane.

TOM SAID

Following Tuesday’s 4-0 win over Juventus, Chelsea have now kept 31 clean sheets in 50 matches under Thomas Tuchel, conceding just 24 goals in the process. As a result, doubling up feels like a bit of a no-brainer, with a visit from a Manchester United side up next who have been unimaginative in attack and shaky at the back all season. To be honest, I don’t think there are many ‘bad’ Chelsea picks this week, but I’ve opted for Edouard Mendy and Reece James, with the latter preferred to Marcos Alonso due to United’s weaker left flank, which has conceded more chances than any other side over the last four Gameweeks.

Meanwhile, Wolverhampton Wanderers are now up to sixth in the table, having won five of their past seven Premier League games, and look a good team for bargain hunting this week. Their opponents Norwich City have struggled in front of goal all season and managed just 0.27 expected goals (xG) from open play against Southampton on Saturday. That leads me to a defensive double-up, via Jose Sa and Rayan Ait-Nouri, who has offered plenty of attacking threat in recent weeks, and is on some set-pieces, too. I’ve also found a spot for Hwang Hee-chan, who steps in as my sub-£7.0m forward option.

Liverpool also supply three picks: Trent Alexander-ArnoldMohamed Salah and Diogo Jota. After last weekend’s comfortable win over Arsenal, the Reds have now scored at least two goals in each of their last 15 matches in all competitions, and will surely have too much for Southampton in Gameweek 13. I particularly like Alexander-Arnold for this match-up, given that only Burnley have conceded more crosses from their left flank than Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side over the last four Gameweeks.

Elsewhere, Tottenham Hotspur failed to manage a single shot on target in a lacklustre opening 45 minutes against Leeds United on Sunday, but improved after the break to claim a 2-1 win. Despite failing to register an attacking return, Son-Heung-min and Harry Kane did have shots deflected onto the woodwork, while the latter managed four goal attempts, including three efforts inside the box, which is more encouraging. Emerson Royal’s selection over Sergio Reguilon is purely an eye-test thing, as I always feel Charlie Taylor is Sean Dyche’s weaker full-back, and in turn, is more susceptible to giving up chances and crosses.

Aaron Ramsdale is the key goalkeeper to own this week, with team-mate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Manchester City duo Joao Cancelo and Phil Foden, plus Bryan MbeumoJamie Vardy and Ollie Watkins rounding off the picks.

NEALE SAID

Gallagher the most-bought FPL player of Gameweek 12 after latest haul 1

Considering that forwards are so out of fashion in the FPL world at present, there were plenty that caught my eye for this week’s Scout Squad. Ivan Toney is up against an Everton defence that have conceded more big chances than any other over the last six Gameweeks, while Christian Benteke has had more shots in the box than any other forward since Gameweek 8. Then there’s a fully rested Gabriel Jesus and Michail Antonio to consider, the latter of whom scored home and away against Manchester City last season.

And yet, none of these made my picks. Josh King did: since his first start under Claudio Ranieri, he is top among forwards for xGI and will be facing a beleaguered Leicester defence that hasn’t kept a clean sheet since Gameweek 1. The master of the just-below-double-digit scores, Raul Jimenez, has delivered six attacking returns in as many starts, meanwhile. As for the top three forwards in my list, they are all very much fixture over form: FPL is as much about anticipation as reaction and trying to pinpoint when these heavy hitters will come good again, as they inevitably will, is the Holy Grail. At least in Burnley, Watford and Newcastle, my trio of plodding premiums will be facing three backlines with one clean sheet between them – against Norwich – in the whole of 2021/22.

Newcastle’s trip to Arsenal will surely see at least two of the Gunners making the Scout Picks and I’m continuing to bang the drum for Bukayo Saka despite owning Emile Smith Rowe. Whether you’re looking at the season-long data or a shorter timeframe, Saka beats his teammate for everything from penalty box touches and shots in the area to chances created. There are some things aren’t captured by Opta stats (Smith Rowe’s Lampardian ability to drift into space on the edge of the box, for example) but Matt Ritchie will really struggle with Saka’s pace this weekend, should that match-up occur, and that seals the deal for me.

I’ve gone with Sergi Canos over Bryan Mbeumo, meanwhile. Brentford representation seems advisory given the state of injury-hit Everton and Canos has noticeably been getting forward a little more of late, with a near-miss against Newcastle one of seven shots he has had over the last two Gameweeks. Lucas Moura over Son Heung-min is also a penny-pinching move, with the Brazilian at the heart of most of Spurs’ serious attacks last weekend despite attempting to break the record for most losses of possession in a game.

At the back, I’m tipping Brighton v Leeds to be a goal-shy affair. Albion are the joint-lowest scorers over the last six Gameweeks, while a Bamford-less Leeds have scored one goal or fewer in 10 of their 12 league matches to date. Illan Meslier should rack up the save points against the profligate Seagulls attack, while Tariq Lamptey has looked eye-catching with his advanced positions (including nine penalty box touches) since a return to the starting XI in Gameweek 11.

Finally, Rayan Ait-Nouri has banked 20 points over the last four Gameweeks. On a share of set plays, he’s second for crosses, joint-fifth for chances created and eighth for final-third touches among all FPL defenders from Gameweeks 9-12.

            True, better shout…

            Could you get Jota with Norm?

            If not, Gallagher?

              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 12 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

              Can afford Jota for Normann.
              Foden news a factor too.

      5. TheDragon
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Midfield is fine isn’t it? Assuming Foden fit.

        Chilwell -> Reguillon / Alonso

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 12 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Could get Jota for any mid but yeah, Chilwell seems the priority.

          1. FCSB
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Ok pencil that in pending Foden news

      1. Amartey Partey
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Spurs were playing mostly their second team and they had 10-men when he came on.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 25 days ago

          It was pretty much our first team by the time he was ok except the full backs

          1. Amartey Partey
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Yes but Spurs also had 10-men at that time and still managed to score a goal and were going for the winner when they conceded.

            1. Qaiss
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

              You do realise the level Mura are at, right? Even with 10 men, Spurs should win.

              1. Amartey Partey
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 25 days ago

                It’s a pointless trophy. The winner goes to the Europa League next season.

                Simon Gleave, head of sports analysis at Nielsen Gracenote: "Going into their match against Tottenham Hotspur, Slovenia's NS Mura were ranked 378th amongst European top flight clubs on the Euro Club Index.

                "Mura's closest equivalent in England are a number of League One clubs with Accrington Stanley, Burton Albion, Cheltenham Town and Gillingham having the closest Euro Club Index ratings."

      The problem with the "but they have good fixtures" clause is that sometimes, that team becomes the good fixture

      Like Spurs atm

      My my Conte has a job on his hands.

      1. Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        ...and no preseason

        No break with the main players around, since they're mostly internationals

        Every match is the training now

      2. Qaiss
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        It’s a funny one. Conte’s never managed a team for more than 2/3 years. Spurs won’t be able to challenge for that long, at least.

        Guess they will sell Kane and buy 3/4 players with his fee.

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          But should they? I remember the Bale money was simply squandered.

          1. Baps hunter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            They should sell Kane anyway. He is useless with that mood.

          2. Qaiss
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Well as Conte’s gone there, he surely has some reassurances over transfers and will have a say in who they buy. And besides, they need a whole new defence and midfield.

            Kane does not want to be there, he’s downed tools these last 3 months, similar to Alexis Sanchez with us 4 years ago. Just doesn’t look like he cares at the moment.

        2. mynameisq
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          I don't think his remit is challenge for a title, it's top 4 and maybe a trophy

          1. Qaiss
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Is that all Conte wants to do with Spurs over the next couple years?

            Spurs are in big trouble if he can’t succeed there. If he can’t, then no-one will.

            1. DARE TO BISCAN
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

              Best Spurs can realistically expect, is to compete for 4th. Along with ManU, Arse, (maybe Leicester, WHam)

        Make the transfers tonight. James is too close to going up.

        I'm wondering about Jota. I have got exact money to get him. He's not going up tonight is he?

    12. Echoes

      Brought in Son last week. Would you sell him for Jota for a hit?

      1. Sailboats

        Not for a hit

      Thoughts on Gray to ESR ?

      1. Sailboats
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Good move. I did the same move a few weeks back

      2. Echoes
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Nice thoughts

      3. Bobby Digital

        Good move

      4. Amartey Partey

        Good this week but ESR become less effective soon.

    14. EL tridente

      Would you do Foden and White to Gallagher and James for a hit?

      1. Sailboats
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        No

      2. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        Depends on other choices. But If you have Jota, then perhaps.

      3. My heart goes Salalalalah
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Yes

      4. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        No

      5. Amartey Partey
        • 2 Years

        Nope. Can you get James in another way?

        1. EL tridente
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Could do Rüdiger to James

    15. EffPeeEll
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Sticking with Vardy again this week.

      Kane sucking up funds and Burnley could prove troublesome.

      kane could be stinking out FPL again this week?

    16. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Chilwell, Foden to R.James, Jota for -4?

      1. AlternativeB
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Did the same now (but had 2FTs though)

      2. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Yes

      4. Amartey Partey

        Have you looked at city’s upcoming fixtures? I wouldn’t sell Foden.

      Foden and Antonio ➡️ Jota and auba -4
      Foden and Antonio ➡️ Esr and lukaku -4
      Or any ideas?

        1. In a Rush
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Could do that I don’t mind taking a hit this week.

        Wait for Presser on Foden

        ihenacho ➡ Benteke would be a good move i reckon

        1. In a Rush
          • 5 Years

          Good shout or maybe asm with Norwich mid week

      3. RogDog_jimmy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Iheanacho needs to go i think

        Down to King, Tekkers, Toney.

        Foden was a slight knock so he should start again soon enough even if he misses this week.

    18. Aaa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Currently have:

      Guaita/Foster
      TAA/Chilwell/Rudi/Duffy/Liv
      Salah/Havertz/Raph/Gallagher/Gray
      Kane/Toney/Armstrong

      Chilwell & Havertz -> Cancelo & Jota? Or is James a better bet?

      1. schlupptheweek
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Difficult, in an ideal world you'd have Cancelo and James, but the move for this week looks good. James could be rested vs Watford but the Man Utd fixture is tasty. Probably go for Cancelo/Jota, hopefully you could downgrade Gray to upgrade Duffy to James in the next few weeks.

      2. RogDog_jimmy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Splitting hairs between James and Cancelo for me. Probably go with James as he’s rising in price quicker it seems.
        Would want a way to get Cancelo asap though.

    19. My heart goes Salalalalah
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      James all set to rise again

      Is Kyle Walker nailed as you can be in a city side?

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Not even as nailed as Cancelo. Walker should start this week at least but is a bit fragile in congestion.

    21. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Glad to see Reguilon was rested. Must have been a poor performance from Spurs.

    23. The-Red-1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Chilwell to:

      Alonso - like for like, no fuss and 0.2m saved

      Or Regulion - 0.7m saved
      Allows for Kane (or Ronaldo) in a few weeks and contingency for other moves

      1. TheDragon
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Reg

      2. Qaiss
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Are you actually asking whether to buy a Chelsea or Spurs defender?

        1. RogDog_jimmy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 25 days ago

          This is the question. Spurs are not good. Chelsea are maybe the best team in the world.

          Don’t understand anyone choosing Spurs over Chelsea players.

      3. maglia rosa
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Reg was my immediate thought on hearing Chilwell's news. Looked into it a little tonight, that saving does help with other upgrades for me but that is clearly team specific.
        It does looks the easiest fixture all year though with Alonso considering it being his best position, the Chelsea form and outlook, and of course Chilwells injury. Maybe a suspicion of going different for different sake considering the plus side of the Chesea backline as Qaiss says a Spurs def over a Che def.....really 😆 Foden news for me will be the key if i remove Chilwell. (as long as he doesnt fall tonight that is 😛

    24. VIVA_RONALDO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Should i play Duffy ahead of Wilson or Antonio?

      1. Ⓙⓐⓡⓥⓘⓢⓗ CMIUK
        • 7 Years

        All 3 are very close. Go with your instincts.

    25. Ha.
      • 6 Years

      Chilwell >

      1. James
      2. TAA (next week, and play Duffy this week)

    26. King Kohli

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
