Scout Selection: The FPL experts' views

The Scout 24 Sep 2021

Some of the world's top Fantasy managers have their say on The Scout's best XI for Gameweek 6

The Scout's panel of experts give their verdicts on the Scout Selection ahead of the Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 6 deadline of 11:00 BST on Saturday 25 September.

Ben Crabtree (@FC_CrabDogg)

I like the Wilfried Zaha (£6.9m) pick. Although they're all good choices, it feels like there's room for an Everton player given their plum home fixture against Norwich City. I'd look to get Andros Townsend (£5.4m) in there.

A lot of Leicester City picks this week but I'm not sure the Foxes will find it easy versus Burnley. I don't see a clean sheet for Crystal Palace either against Brighton & Hove Albion

Paul Gee (@FPLPaulGee)

Michail Antonio (£7.9m) is a fantastic pick and I expect him to score highly against an injury-ridden Leeds United side. I'd also look to get Said Benrahma (£6.5m).

Ben McNair (@drbenmcnair)

Ismaila Sarr (£6.1m) looks a good choice at home to a Newcastle United side who have conceded 13 goals, the second-most behind Norwich's 14.

Mohamed Salah (£12.6m) is the constant, but elsewhere in the midfield it feels like we chop and change each week - such is the difficulty picking midfielders this season. Sarr was superb against Norwich and I expect him to give Matt Ritchie (£5.0m) a similarly torrid time this weekend. 

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily)

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.6m) and Luke Shaw (£5.5m) look a perfect pairing in defence this week, with both having the fixtures for potential clean sheets and attacking returns.

Harvey Barnes (£6.8m) was incredibly popular during pre-season and, while he hasn't returned in the Premier League yet, his goal and assist in the UEFA Europa League shows he is starting to find his form and could be an excellent differential.

Zaha and Barnes are eye-catching picks. In a crowded mid-price midfielder category, it'll be interesting to see if they can stake their claim for inclusion in managers' teams.

Chuck Booth (@ChuckBoothSport)

A fresh Antonio facing Leeds could wreak havoc so I love his addition this week. Zaha may find things tough against Brighton so I'd probably prefer Demarai Gray (£5.8m) or Townsend in that spot. 

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity_)

I've high hopes with the same front two. I can see the contest between Leeds and West Ham United being packed with goals for both sides.
