FPL experts' squads: Van Dijk a must-have

The Scout 15 Jul 2019

Ash from @FPLHints says Liverpool's defensive linchpin is part of his squad for the start of the 2019/20 season

The Scout's panel of experts reveal who they currently plan to pick in their 2019/20 Fantasy Premier League starting squads.

Ederson (MCI) £6.0m

A ‘keeper for the season, he is a safe pair of hands and free of "Pep Roulette" in the Manchester City defence.

Lucas Digne (EVE) £6.0m

The perfect heir to Leighton Baines (£5.0m). He had an amazing debut season as a marauding left-back and will only get better!

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) £7.0m

Defensive and attacking prowess for good measure. An occasional set-piece taker, he is better than some £7.0m midfielders.

Virgil van Dijk (LIV) £6.5m

Liverpool's defensive linchpin isn't shy of scoring an occasional goal. An absolute must-have.

Aymeric Laporte (MCI) £6.5m

A near ever-present for Man City, he is less likely to be rotated than their other defenders.

Wilfried Zaha (CRY) £7.0m

Back to being classified as a midfielder this season. He will be a star player.

Youri Tielemans (LEI) £6.5m

The midfielder was a revelation for Leicester City while on loan last season. At £6.5m he is a bargain and will work nicely with James Maddison (£7.0m), Ayoze Perez (£6.5m) and Jamie Vardy (£9.0m).

Kevin De Bruyne (MCI) £9.5m

Man City didn't miss him for the most part with his lengthy injury lay-off last season. But he's sheer class and will slot in nicely again.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £12.5m

Need I even say anything? His 500+ FPL points over two seasons says it all.

Joshua King (BOU) £6.5m

Much cheaper than his strike partner Callum Wilson (£8.0m), and yet King is a threat in equal measure.

Diogo Jota (WOL) £6.5m

Reclassified as a forward, he's less expensive than his strike partner Raul Jimenez (£7.5m) and hits good runs of form for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

David Button (BHA) £4.0m

A budget goalkeeper enabling funds to be spent elsewhere. 

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (EVE) £6.0m

I expect him to start more this season but, for now, he is a viable first sub option.

Leander Dendoncker (WOL) £4.5m

Bench option with some interesting attacking statistics.

Diego Rico (BOU) £4.0m

An ideal third sub or a potential starter if he can nail a place down during AFC Bournemouth’s promising run of games.
