GW29 Scout Selection: Son backed for derby success

The Scout 1 Mar 2019

The Scout reckons Spurs midfielder can extend home goal streak against Arsenal defence at Wembley

The two-match goalless streak of Son Heung-min (£8.9m) has made a big impact on the plans of Fantasy Premier League managers.

The Tottenham Hotspur midfielder is the second-most sold player in Gameweek 28, earning over 94,000 sales for his home encounter with Arsenal.

But his recent record at Wembley Stadium looks encouraging for a return to form.

Son faith

Son has scored in each of his last three home appearances, tallying 26 points.

Arsenal, meanwhile, arrive as the only side yet to record a clean sheet away from home in 2018/19.

That secures Son a place in The Scout's best XI for Gameweek 29, with Paul Pogba (£8.9m) handed the armband and Raheem Sterling (£11.4m) given the vice-captaincy.

Mat Ryan (BHA) £4.4m

The Brighton & Hove Albion goalkeeper looks well placed to earn them a fifth home clean sheet. Ryan hosts Huddersfield Town, who have scored just three goals in the last nine Gameweeks.

Matt Doherty (WOL) £5.5m

Wolverhampton Wanderers' wing-back has been involved in nine goals, scoring three and assisting a further six. Doherty's side host a Cardiff City side who have scored only nine away goals this season.

Victor Lindelof (MUN) £5.1m

A home fixture with Southampton hands the Manchester United centre-back the chance to extend his fine recent form. Lindelof has one goal, one assist and two clean sheets in his last four Gameweek appearances, totalling 30 FPL points.

Andrew Robertson (LIV) £6.8m

Liverpool's raiding left-back offers strong all-round potential for his trip to Everton. Robertson is the top-scoring FPL defender thanks to nine assists and 16 clean sheets.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £13.5m

The Liverpool star was the most-selected captain by FPL managers in each of the last six Gameweeks. Away from home, Salah's 45 shots and 22 shots on target both rank among the top two players in FPL ahead of his trip to Everton.

Raheem Sterling (MCI) £11.4m

Manchester City's wide man has an excellent scoring record against hosts AFC Bournemouth. Sterling has struck eight goals in his six Premier League meetings with the Cherries and will be among the top captain contenders for Gameweek 29.

Paul Pogba (MUN) £8.9m

The Frenchman has scored six goals and an assist in his five home fixtures under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Pogba has averaged 10.2 points per match in that run ahead of a visit from Southampton.

Son Heung-min (TOT) £8.9m

Since returning from the Asian Cup in Gameweek 24, Son's 16 shots on goal rank third among FPL midfielders. 

Harvey Barnes (LEI) £5.5m

The Academy graduate boasts a major goal threat as Leicester City visit Watford in their first match under Brendan Rodgers. Barnes' totals of 18 shots and 13 shots in the box both place top for FPL midfielders in the last four Gameweeks.

Raul Jimenez (WOL) £6.9m

Wolves' forward has fired four goals in the last five Gameweeks. Jimenez can take advantage of a Cardiff defence who have conceded eight goals in their previous two matches.

Glenn Murray (BHA) £6.3m

The veteran has scored seven of his 10 goals in home matches for Brighton this season. Murray's visitors, Huddersfield Town, have conceded seven goals on their last two road trips.

What the experts say

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity_): Nervous to see Son here: I do not fancy his chances in the north London derby and am likely to sell him in order to bring in a Chelsea or Man City player. Sterling and Pogba will be the stars of Gameweek 29!

Who got the Assist? (@WGTA_FPL): The Barnes pick catches the eye. His underlying statistics suggest he may break through under Rodgers.

Ben Crabtree (@FC_CrabDogg): Strong midfield with a chance being taken on Barnes. Maybe Jamie Vardy (£8.9m) is a better Leicester shout although he is trickier to afford.

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily): Some top picks in here. I have owned Lindelof for a few weeks now and he has been great. Murray could be a brilliant differential, too.
