GW33 Scout Selection: Rely on Rondon

Newcastle forward’s home form can bring in more FPL points in the reduced Gameweek 33

Salomon Rondon (£5.9m) has been a reliable source of Fantasy Premier League points in recent home matches for Newcastle United.

The Magpies have won each of their last five at St James' Park, with Rondon producing three goals and three assists in that run.

That suggests he will pose the main danger to visitors Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon.

Rondon takes his place up front in a 3-5-2 formation ahead of Friday's 19:00 BST deadline, with Eden Hazard (£11.1m) handed the armband and Sadio Mane (£10.1m) given the vice-captaincy.

Scout Selection, Gameweek 33
Kepa Arrizabalaga (CHE) £5.4m

Chelsea have conceded only two goals in their last six home matches ahead of a visit from West Ham United. Kepa has been key to that defensive record and has scored 19 FPL points in his last three appearances.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) £5.5m

The Liverpool right-back has 34 FPL points across his last six away matches. Over 35,000 managers have bought Alexander-Arnold for his visit to Southampton.

Nathan Ake (BOU) £5.1m

AFC Bournemouth's centre-back offers strong all-round potential at home to Burnley. Ake has three goals, an assist and eight clean sheets in his 32 Gameweek appearances.

Ben Chilwell (LEI) £5.1m

Leicester City's full-back has stepped up his creativity ahead of his trip to Huddersfield Town. Chilwell ranks among the top five defenders in FPL for key passes over the last four Gameweeks, with seven.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £13.2m

Away from home, Salah's 52 shots and 38 shots in the box both rank second among all players in FPL. He has four goals and an assist in his three meetings with Southampton.

Eden Hazard (CHE) £11.1m

The Belgian's goal and assist at home to Brighton & Hove Albion in midweek helped him to his ninth double-figure haul of the season. Three of those have arrived in his last four matches at Stamford Bridge.

Ryan Fraser (BOU) £6.2m

AFC Bournemouth's playmaker could bring in a big haul against a Burnley back line with one clean sheet in their last nine road trips. Fraser has produced six double-figure returns this season, with four of them coming at home.

Richarlison (EVE) £6.5m

Moved to Everton's right flank in recent matches, the Brazilian has scored in two of the last three Gameweeks. He faces an Arsenal side who have conceded in all 14 of their away matches.

Sadio Mane (LIV) £10.1m

Liverpool's in-form winger is the most-bought player in the Gameweek, with over 170,000 transfers in. Mane has nine goals and an assist in his last 10 appearances.

Salomon Rondon (NEW) £5.9m

The Newcastle forward has fired 18 shots inside the penalty box in the last six Gameweeks, more than any other player.

Jamie Vardy (LEI) £9.1m

The Leicester striker has returned to top form under new manager Brendan Rodgers. Vardy has four goals, an assist and 32 FPL points in the Irishman’s four matches in charge.

What the experts say

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity_): I like the selections of Vardy and Chilwell against a relegated Huddersfield. I’d be tempted to include James Maddison (£6.8m) or Youri Tielemans (£6.1m) in here, too: both provide great creativity for the front men.

Lee Bonfield (@FPLFamily): A tricky Gameweek to navigate and a good one to make some calculated differential selections. Leicester are going well under Rodgers and Vardy could put Huddersfield to the sword. Can’t stretch to Vardy? Look at Maddison or the in-form Tielemans instead.

Ben McNair (@drbenmcnair): I’d like to see a third Leicester player in there against a fairly toothless Huddersfield. I’d go for Ricardo Pereira (£5.4m) ahead of Ake. After frustrating for weeks, Ricardo looked threatening in GW32.

Neal Thurman (@nealjthurman): No Arsenal seems like a mistake. I'd go for Aaron Ramsey (£7.1m) over Richarlison in midfield.

Paul Gee (@FplPaulGee): A good team. I wouldn't have gone for Richarlison. I'd be looking at someone like Ramsey.

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily): The lack of an Arsenal attacking option is interesting. I'd been expecting to see either Alexandre Lacazette (£9.4m) or Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.8m) in here. I really like the midfield double up from Liverpool, that could be dangerous on Friday evening.

Nick and Tom (@WGTA_FPL): A good mix this week. Rondon has particularly caught my eye, having had more shots in the box than any other player over the last six games.
