SCOUT’S GAMEWEEK 28 PICKS
A higher-than-usual 11 players exceeded their points targets last weekend, although five of these were Watford’s goalkeeper and defence for their unexpected 0-0 draw at Manchester United. Three came from Newcastle United, who continued their two-month unbeaten run by comfortably dispatching ten-man Brentford.
Ryan Fraser (6.5) was not one of these but marginally missed out, having provided the assist for Joelinton’s (5.5) header. The winger has started the last nine matches and has been rejuvenated under Eddie Howe, so he’ll be a strong threat that the opposing Brighton and Hove Albion defence must deal with.
Fellow Scottish international Andrew Robertson (7.5) has a lower target than other full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold (8.5), with the number getting higher for Mohamed Salah (12.5), Sadio Mane (9.5) and Luis Diaz (9.5). Liverpool are firmly in the title race and will be fully concentrated at both ends of the pitch against West Ham United, so Robertson has a fair chance of producing both a clean sheet and attacking return.
Sticking with left-sided Scots, Arsenal’s Kieran Tierney has been granted a 6.5 points target against Watford. The Hornets have scored just twice over their last seven outings and the Gunners haven’t gone more than two matches without a clean sheet – they recently conceded to Brentford and Wolves, so it’s time.
Although it was tempting to stick with Scots – in two ways – by picking Scott McTominay (4.5), the choice for Sunday’s Manchester derby is Jadon Sancho (5.5). An attacker signed for £73 million, with a goal and two assists from his last three league starts, being given such a low target is interesting. A combination of Manchester City’s strong defence and the random benching of Sancho last weekend likely contributed to this but he can definitely beat that.
Finally, Dejan Kulusevski (7.5) is selected for Monday night’s clash with Everton. Harry Kane and Son Heung-min have both been handed a target of 8.5 but the new signing has joined them both in scoring over 20 FPL points over their last three matches.
