The Scout is helping Fantasy Premier League managers who want to make a flying start in the new Second Chance league with some ready-made 15-man squads. 

Here is a squad if you want to pick two premium midfielders.

Big in midfield

Danny Ward (LEI) £4.1m Leicester City’s No 1 produced 52 of his 60 points this season in his last eight matches.

Daniel Iversen (LEI) £3.9m The Foxes’ back-up 'keeper can emerge from the bench if Ward is unavailable.


Kieran Trippier (NEW) £5.9m The No 1 player for value in Fantasy, returning 16.3 points per million spent.

Diogo Dalot (MUN) £4.8m Five of Manchester United’s next seven matches score just two in the Fixture Difficulty Ratings.

Ben White (ARS) £4.7m The Arsenal defender has blanked only once in his last eight outings.

Romain Perraud (SOU) £4.4m Southampton's full-back has the schedule to emerge as a key player under new boss Nathan Jones.

Wesley Fofana (CHE) £4.3m The Frenchman can provide a cut-price route into Chelsea’s defence.


Mohamed Salah (LIV) £12.8m He has nine goals and an assist in his last nine matches for Liverpool.

Kevin De Bruyne (MCI) £12.6m Pairing De Bruyne with Erling Haaland (£12.2m) could prove a winning tactic for Manchester City’s Double Gameweeks.
