Scout Selection: Ings to extend goal spree

The Scout 25 Oct 2019

Southampton striker has scored in three successive matches and earns a place in the best Gameweek 10 line-up captained by Raheem Sterling

A visit from Leicester City hands Danny Ings (£5.9m) the chance to continue his excellent form in Gameweek 10 of Fantasy Premier League.

The Southampton forward has scored in each of their last three appearances, netting against Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Over the last four Gameweeks, Ings’ 13 shots inside the penalty area rank joint-top with Tammy Abraham (£7.8m) in FPL.

That highlights his potential against a Foxes side who arrive at St Mary’s Stadium having conceded in all four of their away matches.

Ings takes his place in a Scout Selection that lines up in a 3-5-2 formation, with Raheem Sterling (£12.1m) handed the armband and Kevin De Bruyne (£10.1m) given the vice-captaincy.

Mat Ryan (BHA) £4.7m

A home encounter with Everton gives the Brighton & Hove Albion goalkeeper a chance to extend his recent form. Ryan has claimed 24 points in the last four Gameweeks.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) £7.2m

The right-back is expected to recover from illness for Liverpool’s Anfield meeting with Spurs. At home, Alexander-Arnold has created 21 chances, more than any other player in FPL.

Calum Chambers (ARS) £4.4m

A visit from Crystal Palace boosts his appeal as a cut-price defender. Chambers has recorded 15 points over his last two appearances at Emirates Stadium.

Ryan Fredericks (WHU) £4.5m

West Ham United’s full-back offers strong all-round potential at home to Sheffield United. Fredericks has two clean sheets and an assist in his previous three home outings.

Raheem Sterling (MCI) £12.1m

The Manchester City winger looks in irresistible form for his home match with Aston Villa. Sterling’s three goals and two assists in the midweek UEFA Champions League win over Atalanta earns him the armband.

Kevin De Bruyne (MCI) £10.1m

Home form has been key to the Belgian’s rise to the top of the FPL player standings. De Bruyne has produced double-figure hauls in each of his three appearances at the Etihad Stadium.

David Silva (MCI) £7.6m

Rested in midweek, the Spaniard looks set to trouble Villa this weekend. Silva’s 11 points against Crystal Palace last weekend was his fourth double-digit return in only seven Gameweek starts.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £12.4m

The Liverpool winger returned from a minor knock to score against Genk in midweek. Salah has averaged 9.5 points per home appearance and faces a Spurs side who have conceded at least twice in all four of their road trips.

Callum Hudson-Odoi (CHE) £6.0m

Chelsea’s teenage winger has made an immediate impact since returning from injury in Gameweek 7. Hudson-Odoi has supplied an assist in each of his three subsequent appearances, totalling 18 points.

Callum Wilson (BOU) £8.0m

The AFC Bournemouth striker has produced a goal or an assist in three of his four away matches. Wilson visits a Watford side who have conceded 13 goals in Quique Sanchez Flores’ five matches in charge.

Danny Ings (SOU) £5.9m

When selected, the forward has scored or assisted an incredible 83 per cent of Southampton’s goals this season.

What the experts say

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily): What a midfield that is! With 11, 13 and 17 points in home matches, De Bruyne looks essential, as does David Silva, who is the only player to have four double-digit hauls so far. I love the Hudson-Odoi pick too. I’m expecting him to get his first Premier League goal this weekend.

Lee Bonfield (@FPLFamily): I feel like The Scout is hedging their bets somewhat with the Man City midfield - the triple-up is unprecedented. But with a decent home fixture against Villa, perhaps it’s warranted. Unlike Rambo on FPL FYI, I’m yet to be convinced of Ings, given that a few of his goals have been largely fortuitous.

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity_): Man City players will be key this week so the midfield triple-up should be fruitful. Hopefully Silva starts after his midweek rest as he tends to produce when he makes the starting XI.

Ash (@FPLHints): Salah rediscovered his goalscoring form during the week, but I'd still favour Sadio Mane (£11.8m). As for Wilson, he's hit a sticky patch and it remains to be seen if he can immediately get back to his best.

Paul Gee (@FPLPaulGee): Great picks. I feel that people who have ditched Salah will be seriously hurt this week, including myself.

Ben Crabtree (@FC_CrabDogg): This could perhaps do with a Leicester attacker. It's not often Chambers is picked!

Mark McGettigan (@FPLGeneral): Good picks this week, overall. Chambers and Fredericks are the only two I'm not overly keen on. I don't rate Arsenal or West Ham particularly highly when it comes to defending. I would have opted for Neal Maupay (£6.0m) over Ings.

Neal Thurman (@nealjthurman): I have a hard time getting behind Chambers. At some point Unai Emery is going to re-insert Hector Bellerin (£5.4m) into Arsenal's starting line-up...right?

Ben McNair (@drbenmcnair): Chambers and Fredericks have favourable fixtures but I'd still rather downgrade Salah to Abraham to enable picks such as Andrew Roberston (£6.9m) and Marcos Alonso (£6.2m).
