Scout Selection: The FPL experts' views

Fantasy experts have their say on The Scout's best XI for Gameweek 6

The Scout's panel of experts give their verdict on the Scout Selection ahead of the Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 6 deadline of 18:30 BST on Friday 23 October.

What the experts say
Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily)

It's always nice when the picks look similar to your own team. I can see plenty of clean sheets for that defence this week. Neal Maupay (£6.6m), Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m) and Harry Kane (£10.8m) look formidable for Gameweek 6.

Pranil Sheth (@Lateriser12)

Really good to see Andrew Robertson (£7.1m) over Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) as the Scot has looked the more attacking defender for a sustainable period of time now.

Utkarsh Dalmia (@zophar666)

I don't think Tottenham Hotspur will find as much joy against Burnley as they did against West Ham United, so a double up on Son Heung-min (£9.4m) and Kane could be too much investment in Spurs. The rest are very good, with most of the players highly owned.

Lee Bonfield (@FPLFamily)

Nice picks from The Scout this week, but a little uninspiring! A lot of template players in that XI, when we should be having fun! There's not going to be many opportunities to get Gareth Bale (£9.5m) or Sergio Aguero (£10.4m) in while they are differentials and under three per cent owned. 

Ben Crabtree (@FC_CrabDogg)

I like the balance in midfield but I'd add Wilfried Zaha (£7.2m) in as a fifth one at the expense of Maupay if that's affordable.

Geoff Dance (@GeoffreyDance)

This week's picks are all strong for this Gameweek, but also for the next bunch of fixtures going forward. Tariq Lamptey (£4.7m) is exactly the kind of cheap defender managers should look to, with three assists already this season.

Neal Thurman (@nealjthurman)

This team is very close to mine so hard to object much. If I were to make a change it would be to get Bruno Fernandes (£10.5m) in for the inevitable penalty conceded by the Chelsea defence.

Ben McNair (@drbenmcnair)

There's a good chance of a double-figure haul for Robertson this week. Sheffield United have been toothless in attack, so a clean sheet is on the cards, and the left-back has looked threatening in attack too combining with Sadio Mane (£12.0m).

Paul Gee (@FPLPaulGee)

Great picks but I think it lacks a Wolverhampton Wanderers attacker. I think they will destroy Newcastle United this weekend.

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity_)

The selection this week reflects my current train of thought on double-ups, with Kane needing to be paired with Son to see significant jumps in overall rank.

Nick (@WGTA_Nick)

I really like this team, mainly because I share 10 of the same players! Hopefully this is a positive omen.
