Scout Selection: Fresh Foden can punish Sheff Utd

The Scout 30 Oct 2020

Man City midfielder picked in The Scout's Gameweek 7 side captained by Liverpool's Sadio Mane

The attacking threat of Phil Foden (£6.6m) could prove a major source of value in Gameweek 7 of Fantasy Premier League.

The Manchester City midfielder has recorded nine shots in the box this season, more than any team-mate.

Foden’s goal threat was evident in Gameweek 6, when he emerged from the bench to score in a 1-1 draw at West Ham United.

His role as a substitute against the Hammers indicates Foden is now likely to start at Sheffield United, after being rotated.

At a cost of just £6.6m, he can thrive against a Blades team who have failed to keep a clean sheet in their six matches.

Foden takes his place in a Selection that lines up in a 3-4-3 formation, with Sadio Mane (£12.0m) handed the armband and Mohamed Salah (£12.4m) named vice-captain.

Sam Johnstone (WBA) £4.5m

The West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper has claimed 14 of his 22 points this season in the last two Gameweeks. Johnstone visits a Fulham side who have scored just one goal in their three home matches.

Romain Saiss (WOL) £5.3m

The top-scoring defender in FPL, Saiss offers multiple routes to points at home to Crystal Palace. The Moroccan has scored once this season and has earned bonus on all four occasions Wolverhampton Wanderers have kept a clean sheet.

Ezri Konsa (AVL) £4.7m

The centre-back has helped Aston Villa to three clean sheets in five matches, and also scored against Sheff Utd in Gameweek 2. At just £4.7m, Konsa can provide big value at the back at home to Southampton.

Ben Chilwell (CHE) £5.8m

Chelsea’s new left-back has one goal, two assists and two clean sheets in his first three appearances of 2020/21. Chilwell is the most-bought defender in Gameweek 7, earning over 229,000 new owners for the visit to Burnley.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £12.4m

Liverpool’s Egyptian offers huge all-round potential at home to West Ham. Salah’s 22 shots in the penalty area and 17 chances created both rank among the top two players in Fantasy.

Sadio Mane (LIV) £12.0m

The Senegalese earns the armband ahead of Salah due to his recent performances. Mane has bettered his team-mate by 37 points to 17 in their last four Gameweek appearances together.

Son Heung-min (TOT) £9.5m

FPL’s top-scoring player has produced four double-figure hauls in the last five Gameweeks. Son has risen to a hefty 56.5 per cent ownership ahead of Tottenham Hotspur's home match with Brighton & Hove Albion.

Phil Foden (MCI) £6.6m

The 20-year-old has been a consistent source of points this term, with returns in three of Man City’s five matches.

Harry Kane (TOT) £10.9m

Another big captaincy option for Gameweek 7, Kane has earned two 16-point hauls in the last three Gameweeks. Brighton, meanwhile, have kept just a single clean sheet all season.

Patrick Bamford (LEE) £5.9m

The most-bought player in the Gameweek, he has earned over 360,000 new owners for Leeds United’s home meeting with Leicester City. Bamford’s 23 shots, 20 shots in the box and 11 shots on target all rank among the top three forwards this term.

Ollie Watkins (AVL) £6.0m

Villa’s frontman has suffered successive blanks following his hat-trick against Liverpool. But Watkins has the pace to punish Southampton’s high defensive line and help him return to the scoresheet.
