GW27 Selection: Home in on Kolasinac

The Scout 22 Feb 2019

The Scout says Arsenal left-back’s form at Emirates Stadium can bring more points against Southampton

The home form of Sead Kolasinac (£5.1m) earns him a place in The Scout’s best XI for Gameweek 27 of Fantasy Premier League

The Arsenal defender has made a big impact at both ends of the pitch in his recent appearances at Emirates Stadium.

Kolasinac has three assists and two clean sheets in his last five home matches ahead of Sunday’s visit from Southampton

His all-round potential seals his spot in a 3-4-3 formation, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.1m) handed the armband and Son Heung-min (£9.0m) given the vice-captaincy. 

Neil Etheridge (CAR) £4.7m

The top-value player in FPL in terms of points per million, with 24.0, Etheridge is seeking a third successive home clean sheet against Watford

Ricardo Pereira (LEI) £5.4m

Ahead of the visit of Crystal Palace, the Leicester City full-back has three assists in his last six matches, earning him more than 116,000 new owners for Gameweek 27, the most among defenders.

Sead Kolasinac (ARS) £5.1m

Since making his first start of the season in Gameweek 11, Kolasinac's total of six assists is more than any other defender in FPL. 

Fabian Schar (NEW) £4.6m

The Newcastle United defender offers big all-round potential at home to Huddersfield Town. Schar has two goals and two clean sheets in his last four matches at St James’ Park. 

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £13.6m

Liverpool's top scorer boasts a big goal threat for his trip to Old Trafford. Away from home, no player has bettered Salah’s totals of 44 shots and 23 shots on target. 

Paul Pogba (MUN) £8.8m

The Manchester United midfielder will be among the main captaincy contenders for Gameweek 27. Pogba has produced 10.2 FPL points per match under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Felipe Anderson (WHU) £7.2m

Seven of the Brazilian's eight goals this season have been against opponents in the bottom eight. He is set to face Fulham, whose 32 away goals conceded are more than any other side. 

Son Heung-min (TOT) £9.0m

The most-bought player in the Gameweek, with over 265,000 transfers in, Son travels to Burnley in excellent form, having scored in each of his three league appearances since returning from the Asian Cup. 

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (ARS) £11.1m

The Arsenal forward is in prolific home form ahead of Southampton's visit. Aubameyang has four goals, two assists and 36 FPL points in his last four at Emirates Stadium.

Raul Jimenez (WOL) £6.8m

The Wolverhampton Wanderers forward has three goals and an assist in the last four Gameweeks. Jimenez also produced a goal and nine FPL points in the reverse fixture at home to AFC Bournemouth.

Joshua King (BOU) £6.4m

The AFC Bournemouth striker has three goals and an assist in his last two home matches and faces a Wolves defence with just one clean sheet in their last 10 away trips. 

What the experts say

Neal Thurman (@nealjthurman): If I were going for a West Ham midfielder, I'd go with Michail Antonio (£6.8m) over Anderson. Antonio has been more consistently productive over the past couple of months and is cheaper. What's not to love?

Lee Bonfield (@FPLFamily): Great to see Anderson. He may benefit against that shaky Fulham defence in the same way that Anthony Martial (£7.2m) did a couple of weeks ago. I like Newcastle’s Miguel Almiron (£6.0m) as a differential this week. He was a goal and assist machine in the MLS.

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity_): I fancy Pogba to do well on Sunday, but Salah has struggled against top-six opposition, particularly away from home, and has never got an attacking return against Man Utd.

Mark McGettigan (@FPLGeneral): I fancy Martin Dubravka (£5.0m) more than Etheridge for a clean sheet this week. Marko Arnautovic (£6.8m) instead of King is a change I'd make. Fulham concede bucketloads and I like the idea of an Anderson/Arnautovic double-up this weekend.

Ben Crabtree (@FC_CrabDogg): I'm still undecided on Anderson or James Maddison (£6.6m). Hopefully Kolasinac can provide the haul he's been teasing.
