The Scout's panel of experts discuss which premium options are must-haves following Gameweek 1

The Scout's panel of experts discuss the key lessons they learned from Gameweek 1 of 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League.

I've already done Harry Kane (£11.4m) to Erling Haaland (£11.6m) to avoid the price rise - his ownership is going to rise rapidly so we need to get on quickly.

I am nervous selling Kane but he had a quiet opening day so for now I'll go without a Tottenham Hotspur player. I will be looking at Dejan Kulusevski (£8.0m) from Gameweek 3.

I went without Haaland for Gameweek 1 and it was painful watching the Manchester City match! For that reason I transferred him straight in at the final whistle for Kane as I can't bear to watch another fixture without him.

Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) is an ever-present in my team and now the pair of them together are must-haves. Spurs look strong going forward so I'll be looking to cover their attack with Kulusevski from Gameweek 3.

Both Salah and Haaland brought home the points. That said, I will say Haaland looked more convincing. I'm interested in seeing Liverpool's dynamic after Darwin Nunez (£9.0m) starts, which I expect.

Salah's never going to be a bad pick in FPL but everything Man City did was geared towards Haaland being successful in front of goal. That's a pretty frightening prospect for the rest of the league.

As expected, Haaland and Salah look like they will score plenty of goals. Hopefully some other big-hitters can hit form to cause some dilemmas.

Salah and Haaland feel like must-haves but I still think a third premium is possible with so many good enablers this season. I have Kane, who could become Nunez soon.

Early evidence is that Haaland will be the talisman for City in the same way Salah is for Liverpool. Both on penalties and with great medium-term fixtures.
