GW28 Scout Selection: Aubameyang leads the line

The Scout 26 Feb 2019

The Scout tips Arsenal forward for a successful return to the teamsheet at home to AFC Bournemouth

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m) retains his place in The Scout’s best XI for Gameweek 28 of Fantasy Premier League.

More than 117,000 managers have sold the Arsenal forward after he featured as a late substitute against Southampton last weekend.

But Aubameyang is expected to return to the starting line-up for Arsenal's midweek home meeting with AFC Bournemouth and will look to add to his four goals and two assists in his last four starts at Emirates Stadium.

That form earns him the vice-captaincy, with Mohamed Salah (£13.6m) given the armband in a 4-4-2 formation.

Ederson (MCI) £5.6m

The Manchester City goalkeeper can extend his fine run of form at home to West Ham United. Ederson has four clean sheets in his last six appearances.

Matt Doherty (WOL) £5.4m

The Irishman has earned over 50,000 new owners for the trip to Huddersfield Town. Doherty has supplied an assist in three of his last four away matches for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) £5.2m

The right-back is set to return to the Liverpool XI against Watford. Alexander-Arnold has averaged 6.6 points per start in home fixtures this season.

Ricardo Pereira (LEI) £5.4m

The Leicester City defender has been involved in eight goals this season, scoring twice and supplying six assists. Pereira also has seven clean sheets ahead of a home meeting with Brighton & Hove Albion.

Sead Kolasinac (ARS) £5.1m

Arsenal’s attacking full-back offers strong all-round potential for the visit of AFC Bournemouth. Kolasinac has three assists and three clean sheets in his last six home appearances. 

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £13.6m

A home encounter with Watford gives Salah the chance to strengthen his spot as the top-scoring player in FPL. He produced four goals, an assist and 29 points in the corresponding fixture last season.

Miguel Almiron (NEW) £6.0m

Newcastle United’s playmaker created six chances and fired three shots on target on his home debut at the weekend. Almiron comes up against a Burnley defence with one clean sheet in seven attempts.

Paul Pogba (MUN) £8.9m

The Frenchman has two goals and five assists in five away appearances under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. That highlights Pogba’s captaincy potential as Manchester United travel to Crystal Palace.

Leroy Sane (MCI) £9.5m

The winger could return to Man City's starting line-up after his substitute appearance in the EFL Cup final. Sane produced his season-best haul of 19 points against West Ham in Gameweek 13.

Raul Jimenez (WOL) £6.9m

The Wolves striker has four goals in the last four Gameweeks ahead of his trip to Huddersfield. Away from home, Jimenez’s 35 shots on goal rank second among FPL forwards.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (ARS) £11.0m

Arsenal’s forward will be among the big captain contenders for Gameweek 28. Aubameyang has four double-figure hauls in his last 10 appearances at Emirates Stadium.

What the experts say

Neal Thurman (@nealjthurman): As someone who saw Almiron play live for Atlanta United, I'm a big fan but let's not get too carried away.

Lee Bonfield (@FPLFamily): Without Nemanja Matic (£5.0m), Pogba drifted wider and deeper against Liverpool, so I’m not feeling big points from him this week.

Ash (@FPLHints): I have no doubt Almiron will cause havoc against Burnley and will live up to his underlying stats.

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity_): As a Sane owner I'm hoping he vindicates The Scout's backing. We know what he can do if he's in the mood.

Josh Landon (@hailcheaters): As Sane seems locked in to start he offers a high risk/high reward option against a wide-open West Ham defence.

Ben Crabtree (@FC_CrabDogg): Sane could be a great shout. I'm hoping for Pereira and Aubameyang returns.

Who got the Assist? (@WGTA_FPL): Aubameyang v AFC Bournemouth is one to consider if you're chasing rivals.

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily): Pereira is interesting. I have him on the basis of the fixtures but Leicester’s form has been poor. I hope we see something from him after the departure of Claude Puel.
