Scout Selection: Wilson leads the line

The Scout 10 Dec 2020

Newcastle forward features in best GW12 Fantasy XI captained by Mohamed Salah

A home encounter with West Bromwich Albion gives Callum Wilson (£6.6m) the chance to continue his prolific start to 2020/21 Fantasy Premier League.

The striker has been a huge success since joining Newcastle United in the summer, scoring seven goals and supplying three assists.

Wilson, who returned to training with his Newcastle team-mates this week following the postponement of their fixture against Aston Villa last weekend, has averaged 7.4 points per match this term, the joint-second best tally among FPL forwards.

After three sets of double-figure hauls in his last six outings, he could be a strong captain pick against West Brom.

Wilson is named in a Scout Selection that lines up in a 3-4-3 formation, with Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) handed the armband and Son Heung-min (£9.6m) named vice-captain.

Alex McCarthy (SOU) £4.6m

A visit from struggling Sheffield United hands the Southampton goalkeeper the chance to extend his excellent home form. McCarthy has kept three clean sheets in his last four matches at St Mary’s Stadium.

Andrew Robertson (LIV) £7.2m

The Liverpool left-back heads to Fulham on the back of 20 points in the last three Gameweeks. Robertson has combined an assist with two clean sheets and three bonus points in that period. 

Sergio Reguilon (TOT) £5.7m

Tottenham Hotspur’s summer signing has been among the most consistent defenders in FPL this season. Reguilon has blanked only once in seven appearances ahead of a trip to Crystal Palace.

Stuart Dallas (LEE) £4.6m

The versatile Leeds United player can provide big value at home to West Ham United. Playing in midfield has helped Dallas have 12 shots and six shots on target, both of which rank among the top three FPL defenders this term.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £12.3m

His 14-point haul against Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend was his highest since Gameweek 1. The Egyptian can bring in another big return against a Fulham side who have only kept one clean sheet this season.

Son Heung-min (TOT) £9.6m

The Spurs star has delivered six double-figure hauls on his way to the top of the FPL points standings. Son has a fine record against his weekend hosts, having scored four goals in his last four starts against Palace.

Kevin De Bruyne (MCI) £11.8m

Manchester City’s playmaker has recorded 10 and 14 points in his last two outings ahead of the Manchester derby. De Bruyne’s total of 18 shots in the last four Gameweeks is more than any other player in FPL.

Pedro Neto (WOL) £5.6m

Three goals and three assists in the first 11 Gameweeks underlines his potential value at home to Aston Villa. Neto seems set to continue up front for Wolves in the absence of team-mate Raul Jimenez (£8.2m). 

Patrick Bamford (LEE) £6.2m

The most-bought forward in the Gameweek has earned 190,000+ new owners ahead of a home match against West Ham. Bamford’s 43 shots and 38 shots in the box are both league-leading totals.

Callum Wilson (NEW) £6.6m

His seven big chances in home matches are the joint-most with Bamford among all players in FPL this season.

Timo Werner (CHE) £9.5m

The Chelsea forward has blanked only once in the last five Gameweeks. He could be a strong captain pick against an Everton side who are without a clean sheet in 10 matches.
