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

Paul Gee (FPLPaulGee)
Nick Pope (BUR) £4.5m

Pope could offer a cheap route into a normally very stable Burnley defence. 

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) £7.0m

An assist and clean-sheet king. With another season of Premier League experience behind him, he could be even better in 2019/20.

Aymeric Laporte (MCI) £6.5m

A way into a solid Manchester City defence who will probably keep the most clean sheets this season. But I will be keeping an eye on their pre-season teamsheets.

Marcos Alonso (CHE) £6.5m

Although Chelsea have a really awkward first match at Manchester United, their fixtures are very attractive afterwards, and we all know what Alonso can do in FPL.

Lucas Digne (EVE) £6.0m

He could perhaps challenge the top Liverpool defenders for assists this season.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £12.5m

Go without him if you dare. A slight drop in price from last season has made him more appealing.

Gylfi Sigurdsson (EVE) £8.0m

A player who delivers every season but always seems to go under the radar as a differential. He is on set-pieces, including penalties.

David Brooks (BOU) £6.5m

Showed what he could do last term and I think he could really shine if he nails down a regular starting spot.

Pedro (CHE) £7.0m

Another differential pick as Chelsea have a great opening set of fixtures. If he gets regular game time he could get 10 to 15 goals.

Harry Kane (TOT) £11.0m

Although he was not at his best last term due to injuries, Kane has regularly scored 20 to 30 goals a season. He can't be overlooked and his price drop makes him more attractive.

Joshua King (BOU) £6.5m

With a really nice opening 10 fixtures and penalty duties, King is a good pick.


David Button (BHA) £4.0m

A cut-price enabler who will sit on the bench.

Shane Long (SOU) £5.0m

If Danny Ings (£6.0m) continues to struggle with injuries and Che Adams (£6.0m) finds it difficult to make the step up from the Championship, Long could be a regular this season.

Leander Dendoncker (WOL) £4.5m

A cheap midfielder who will play.

Charlie Taylor (BUR) £4.5m

This season is his chance to shine.
