Scout Selection: Kane backed for big FPL points

The Scout 7 Jul 2020

Spurs striker faces defence who have conceded nine goals in two matches and leads a GW34+ line-up captained by Kevin De Bruyne

A visit to AFC Bournemouth gives Harry Kane (£11.0m) the chance to bring in a major points haul in Gameweek 34+ of Fantasy Premier League.

The Tottenham Hotspur forward has found the net against West Ham United and Sheffield United in the last three Gameweeks.

And he can take advantage of a Cherries defence who have conceded nine goals over their last two matches.

Kane takes his place in a Selection that lines up in a 3-5-2 formation, with Kevin De Bruyne (£10.8m) given the armband and Bruno Fernandes (£8.9m) named vice-captain.

Ben Foster (WAT) £4.9m

Seven of the Watford No 1's nine clean sheets in 2019/20 have come at Vicarage Road. Foster has a home meeting with a Norwich City team who have failed to score in all four of their matches since the season resumed.

Virgil van Dijk (LIV) £6.5m

Liverpool’s centre-back enjoyed a successful last outing against his hosts, Brighton & Hove Albion. Van Dijk scored twice to claim his season-high haul of 17 points in Gameweek 14.

Matt Doherty (WOL) £6.4m

The Wolverhampton Wanderers wing-back offers all-round potential at Sheff Utd. Doherty scored and earned 10 points in his previous encounter with the Blades.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka (MUN) £5.5m

Manchester United’s right-back has been a big success at both ends of the pitch recently. Wan-Bissaka visits Aston Villa off the back of two assists and two clean sheets in the last three Gameweeks.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £12.6m

His assist against Villa last time out took Liverpool's Egyptian past the 200-point mark for a third successive season. Salah can provide yet more returns against a Brighton defence with just one clean sheet in their last 10 at home. 

Kevin De Bruyne (MCI) £10.8m

Manchester City’s playmaker looks poised for a recall against Newcastle United after being named on the bench at Southampton at the weekend. De Bruyne has claimed 14 points in each of his last three home starts.

Bruno Fernandes (MUN) £8.9m

The most-bought midfielder in the Gameweek, he has earned over 191,000 new owners ahead of a match with Villa. Fernandes has scored in each of his last three away appearances, totalling four goals and 34 points.

Michail Antonio (WHU) £6.9m

An ownership of 1.2 per cent marks the West Ham United midfielder out as a big differential at home to Burnley. Playing up front for the Hammers, Antonio has scored in each of the last two Gameweeks.

Phil Foden (MCI) £5.4m

The Man City midfielder looks set to start at home to Newcastle after featuring as a substitute last time out. Foden has 16 and 12-point hauls in his last two outings at Etihad Stadium and could even be an outside pick for the captaincy.

Harry Kane (TOT) £11.0m

The Spurs frontman has recorded four big chances since the season resumed, joint-top among all players in FPL.

Mason Greenwood (MUN) £4.6m

Hauls of 12 and 13 points in his last two outings have made the Man Utd forward the most-bought player in the Gameweek. Greenwood has earned over 415,000 new owners for his meeting with Villa.

What the experts say

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity_): The midfield looks very similar to my own and 3-5-2 is now the optimal formation, with few exciting forward options. Kane could do very well against AFC Bournemouth.

Paul Gee (@FPLPaulGee): The Kane pick is a very good one against a poor AFC Bournemouth team.

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily): If Foster is going to get a clean sheet during the rest of this season I would expect it to be this Gameweek against Norwich. Kane is a gutsy pick given Spurs' recent form, but he could bring good returns for those brave enough.

Neal Thurman (@nealjthurman): We know it's hard to go and win at Bramall Lane, so I might not want to spend premium money on Doherty. A double-up with Van Dijk and one of Liverpool's full-backs would be preferable. 

Ben McNair (@drbenmcnair): The selection looks primed for a big score this week with some great fixtures for Man City and Man Utd. Salah is the only pick I'm worried about. He's played a lot of minutes and Liverpool are about to play the third of four matches in 10 days. He may get a rest. Riyad Mahrez (£8.6m) and Son Heung-min (£9.8m) look like viable alternatives.

Remember the GW34+ deadline is 17:00 BST on Tuesday 7 July.
