Scout Selection: Rely on Robertson for more returns

The Scout 22 Oct 2020

Liverpool left-back included in Gameweek 6 line-up captained by his team-mate Mohamed Salah

A series of consistent displays have enhanced the case for Andrew Robertson (£7.1m) to be regarded as the go-to premium defender in 2020/21 Fantasy Premier League.

The Liverpool left-back has blanked just once in the opening five Gameweeks, combining one goal and two assists with a clean sheet.

When compared with other defenders, the underlying numbers further his appeal.

Robertson's four shots in the box place second, while his three big chances created and 22 touches in the penalty box are both top.

He takes his place in a Scout Selection that lines up in a 3-4-3 formation, with Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) handed the armband and Harry Kane (£10.8m) named vice-captain.

Emiliano Martinez (AVL) £4.8m

The Aston Villa goalkeeper has kept a clean sheet in three of his four matches this season. Martinez hosts a Leeds United side who have only scored twice in the last three Gameweeks.

Andrew Robertson (LIV) £7.1m

Over 189,000 managers have bought the Liverpool defender for his home encounter with Sheffield United.

Romain Saiss (WOL) £5.2m

FPL's top-scoring defender can provide points at both ends of the pitch at home against Newcastle United. Saiss has one goal and three clean sheets in the first five Gameweeks for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Tariq Lamptey (BHA) £4.7m

The Brighton & Hove Albion wing-back could bring in a clean sheet at home against a West Bromwich Albion side who have blanked in their last two matches. Lamptey also offers attacking potential, with his three assists being joint-top among FPL defenders.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £12.3m

Liverpool's Egyptian hosts Sheff Utd after producing 25 points across his two home outings this season. Salah's 25 shots and 19 shots in the box are both league-leading totals.

Son Heung-min (TOT) £9.4m

The most-bought player in 2020/21 FPL, he has earned over 3.57 million new owners. Son has three double-figure hauls over the last four Gameweeks and is among the top captain contenders as Tottenham Hotspur visit Burnley.

Phil Foden (MCI) £6.6m

The midfielder offers strong value away against West Ham United. Foden has had eight shots in the box, a team-leading total for Manchester City this term.

Jack Grealish (AVL) £7.2m

The Aston Villa midfielder has racked up three goals, three assists and 35 points in the last three Gameweeks. Grealish's visitors Leeds United have conceded 53 shots in the box, more than any other side.

Harry Kane (TOT) £10.8m

The top target for Fantasy managers in Gameweek 5, he has been bought by over 529,000 for Spurs' trip to Burnley. Kane will head to Turf Moor having served up back-to-back 16-point hauls.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (EVE) £7.7m

Boasting a 54.8 per cent ownership, the Everton striker is the most-owned player in FPL. Southampton's struggles at the back suggest Calvert-Lewin can reward that faith by scoring for a sixth successive Gameweek.

Neal Maupay (BHA) £6.6m

Brighton's frontman has scored four goals and supplied an assist in the last four Gameweeks. Maupay can bring in more returns against a West Brom side who have conceded 13 goals and a league-leading 14 big chances.

Don't get caught out. The Gameweek 6 deadline is at 18:30 BST on Friday 23 October.
