FPL experts' squads: Record in Alexander-Arnold's sight

The Scout 22 Jul 2019

Mark McGettigan says Liverpool defender can beat Andrew Robertson's points total in 2019/20

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

Mark McGettigan (@FPLGeneral)
Nick Pope (BUR) £4.5m

A hero for me in 2017/18. If he starts the season as Burnley's No 1, he could be a bargain.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) £7.0m

The first player I put in my team when the game launched. If he avoids injury, I fancy him to beat the record points total for a defender, achieved by Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) last season.

Virgil van Dijk (LIV) £6.5m

Provided four goals, four assists and 20 clean sheets last season and I expect more of the same in 2019/20.

Lucas Digne (EVE) £6.0m

An attacking full-back who also takes some set-pieces and Everton have a favourable run of fixtures in the early part of the season. What's not to like?

Aymeric Laporte (MCI) £6.5m

Plays for the best team in the league and showed last season he has an eye for goal.

Kyle Walker (MCI) £6.0m

Has had a price drop after a disappointing season in terms of attacking returns. I expect him to be more productive this campaign.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £12.5m

After back-to-back seasons of 250+ points, his price drop makes him an easy pick. That opening fixture at home to Norwich City looks very good indeed.

Gylfi Sigurdsson (EVE) £8.0m

An FPL legend, he delivers season after season and has set-pieces and penalties in his locker.

Ryan Fraser (BOU) £7.5m

Sensational in 2018/19 and I see no reason why he won't produce similar numbers this time.

Harry Kane (TOT) £11.0m

My biggest dilemma is whether to include Kane or not. If I do, he could wrestle the captain's armband from Salah for Gameweek 1.

Joshua King (BOU) £6.5m

Priced at £1.5m cheaper than Callum Wilson (£8.0m) and is on penalties.

David Button (BHA) £4.0m

A value back-up goalkeeper to Mat Ryan (£4.5m) at Brighton & Hove Albion.

Mason Greenwood (MUN) £4.5m

The young forward has found form during the summer friendlies.

Leander Dendoncker (WOL) £4.5m

A handy budget midfielder.

Isaac Hayden (NEW) £4.5m

Another cut-price midfielder, he produced one goal and four assists last season.
