FPL Scout Selection: In-form Baggies earn call-ups

West Bromwich Albion contribute three assets to The Scout's line-up for Gameweek 20

With Manchester City's Sergio Aguero (£12.8m) back in the reckoning as an option up front, we have turned to the value offered by three West Bromwich Albion assets to underpin our Gameweek 20 selection.

Ben Foster - West Bromwich Albion - £4.7m

Without a clean sheet in seven Gameweeks, Foster has only conceded more than a single goal in one of those matches, while gathering six save points, including ten stops against Arsenal in Gameweek 18. He hosts a Hull City side that have scored a modest five goals in nine away fixtures.

Scott Dann - Crystal Palace - £5.2m

A second shutout of the season looks a strong possibility against a struggling Swansea City outfit that have notched twice in their last four Gameweeks. Dann also boasts a major goal threat, having registered more penalty area attempts (14) than any other FPL defender.

Erik Pieters - Stoke City - £4.5m

Matched against a Watford side with a single goal in their last four outings, the Dutchman provides strong clean sheet prospects. Operating as a left wing-back, he can also contribute going forward, demonstrated by an assist at Liverpool in Gameweek 18.

Ben Gibson - Middlesbrough - £4.9m

The only ever-present in Aitor Karanka's ranks, Gibson has gathered five clean sheets and more bonus points (nine) than any other team-mate in the Middlesbrough back four. He will look to contain a Leicester City side without striker Jamie Vardy (£9.6m) and with eight goals from nine away matches this season.

Adam Lallana - Liverpool - £7.6m

Subject to more transfers in than any other player heading into Gameweek 20, the Liverpool midfielder moved to seven goals and seven assists with his sublime cross in Saturday's win over Manchester City. Up against a Sunderland defence that shipped four to Burnley last time out, Lallana looks well placed to maintain that outstanding form.

Wilfried Zaha - Crystal Palace - £5.8m

Playing his last outing before a departure to the Africa Cup of Nations, Zaha will be seeking to end a run of three successive blanks. He returned two goals and seven assists in seven matches prior to his dry spell and is up against a Swansea City side that have shipped 18 goals in their last six Gameweeks.

Matt Phillips - West Brom - £5.6m

With four goals and five assists in his last nine Gameweek starts, the Baggies winger now offers the best points per million value among FPL midfielders. He has every chance of boosting his stock further against Monday's visitors Hull City, who are without a clean sheet since Gameweek 2.

Alexis Sanchez - Arsenal - £11.9m

The top scoring FPL asset in away matches, Sanchez has notched nine goals on his travels ahead of a trip to face AFC Bournemouth. With a 7.2 points per appearance average, we're backing the Chilean for further returns on the South Coast.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic - Manchester United - £11.6m

A visit to West Ham United will provide a stern test for United, but the form of Ibrahimovic is difficult to ignore. An assist in Saturday's 2-1 win over Middlesbrough sealed returns in his last four Gameweeks, a spell that's brought four goals and as many assists.

Salomon Rondon - West Bromwich Albion - £6.7m

The Venezuelan has struck five of his seven goals at home, including a hat-trick in Gameweek 16 against Swansea City. Rested at Southampton in Gameweek 19, we feel that Rondon will be recalled against Hull City and carry the major threat to the Tigers.

Sergio Aguero - Manchester City - £12.8m

Back in the Scout Selection as our Gameweek 20 captain, we are backing the Argentinian to reap a big return against Burnley at the Etihad Stadium. The Clarets have shipped 18 goals in eight away trips with a single clean sheet earned.
