Scout selection: Jimenez home run to continue

The Scout 10 Jan 2020

Wolves striker has scored or assisted in five of last six home matches and is named in GW22 line-up captained by Jamie Vardy

A visit from Newcastle United hands Raul Jimenez (£7.5m) the chance to extend his run of home returns in Fantasy Premier League.

The Wolverhampton Wanderers striker has been in reliable form when playing at Molineux recently, producing a goal or assist in five of his last six matches.

He faces a Magpies defence that have conceded 21 away goals, the second-worst record in the league.

Jimenez takes his place in a 3-4-3 formation, with Jamie Vardy (£10.0m) given the armband and Kevin De Bruyne (£10.6m) the vice-captaincy.

Ben Foster (WAT) £4.8m

Watford's No 1 sits joint-second among FPL goalkeepers on 81 points. Foster visits AFC Bournemouth, who have scored just three goals in their last six home matches.

Djibril Sidibe (EVE) £5.4m

Everton’s right-back welcomes Brighton & Hove Albion on the back of some impressive home displays. Sidibe has two assists, two clean sheets and 24 points in his last three outings at Goodison Park.

John Lundstram (SHU) £5.1m

The Sheffield United man offers strong all-round potential against West Ham United. Lundstram has scored all three of his goals this season at Bramall Lane, also producing two assists and four clean sheets at home.

Matt Doherty (WOL) £6.1m

Wolves' wing-back has upped his goal threat in recent matches. Doherty's seven shots and four shots on target are both more than any other FPL defender over the last four Gameweeks.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £12.3m

The Liverpool winger has three double-figure hauls in his last five Gameweek appearances. Salah boasts a fine record against his hosts, Tottenham Hotspur, scoring five goals in his six meetings for the Reds.

Anthony Martial (MUN) £7.9m

A visit from Norwich City hands the Frenchman a chance to extend his run of home returns. Martial has two double-figure hauls in his last four home appearances for Manchester United.

Kevin De Bruyne (MCI) £10.6m

FPL's top-scoring midfielder boasts strong away form for his visit to Aston Villa. De Bruyne has served up 37 points in his last four road trips for Manchester City.

James Maddison (LEI) £7.7m

The Leicester City playmaker is expected to recover from a knock for the visit of Southampton. At home, Maddison's 21 chances created and 25 shots are first and second respectively for the Foxes.

Raul Jimenez (WOL) £7.5m

The Wolves frontman produced an 11-point haul against Man City in his last home match in Gameweek 19.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (EVE) £5.9m

The Everton striker has three goals and 20 points in his three matches under Carlo Ancelotti. Calvert-Lewin can extend than run against a Brighton defence without a clean sheet in their last seven away encounters.

Jamie Vardy (LEI) £10.0m

The top-scoring player in FPL, Vardy has a goal or an assist in 10 of his last 12 appearances. He produced his season-high haul of 20 points against Southampton in Gameweek 10.

What the experts say

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity_): Sibide is emerging as an intriguing out of position option. Could he take Lundstram's crown?

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily): Foster looks a great pick this week. He currently has the most bonus points of any keeper as well as being the joint-second highest scoring keeper in the game. Given the improvements in Watford's form under their new head coach I would expect him to pick up a clean sheet against an out-of-form and injury-ravaged AFC Bournemouth side.

Ben Crabtree (@FC_CrabDogg): I fancy Raheem Sterling (£11.8m) to shine this week, so I would have liked him to be selected. Newcastle look vulnerable, so I'm liking the Wolves double-up.

Ben McNair (@drbenmcnair): Doherty is an excellent choice, with a chance of attacking and clean sheet points at home to goal-shy Newcastle. I would have gone for Sadio Mane (£12.3m) rather than Salah. Spurs are stronger defensively on their left-hand side. On the opposite flank, Serge Aurier (£5.1m) has more licence to get forward and that may lead to opportunities for Mane on transitions.
