The Scout's panel of Fantasy Premier League experts share their thoughts on what to do with Aston Villa defender Matty Cash (£5.2m), who has only returned 11 points over his last five appearances and ahead of a difficult run of fixtures.

What the FPL experts say

Villa's fixtures don't scream clean sheets, so he's a sell or bench, and then sell. Waiting a few weeks for Reece James' (£5.3m) fixtures to pick up and some confirmation of the Chelsea defender being back to full fitness could be the way to go.

Verdict: Keep for now, before selling

Villa's best fixtures are behind them, with three of their next four matches against Spurs, Man City and Arsenal, who are all very likely to score. Their fourth opponent, AFC Bournemouth, also look revitalised. He can be moved on for an Arsenal defender, with William Saliba (£5.4m) being the top pick.

Verdict: Sell

With Villa's fixtures turning, Cash looks to be a reluctant sell. With Spurs looking out of sorts against Wolves, you might not need to do it immediately, but I'm already eyeing up a move to a Chelsea defender in a couple of Gameweeks - maybe it's time for James to return to my team!

Verdict: Keep for now, before selling

Unai Emery's side have been unable to keep clean sheets recently and Cash's output has subsequently been disappointing. Many will have other fires to put out first, but Cash is one that is hovering close to the exit door.

Verdict: Sell if you can

Villa's excellent fixture run has now come to an end and as such, losing a defender is viable. I am looking at Arsenal and Newcastle defenders as replacements.

Verdict: Sell

Harry Daniels (@FPL_Harry)

Villa continue to score goals, but clean sheets have been hard to come by. Their fixtures are also turning for the worse, so I would be looking to sell, with the only difficulty being who to bring in as a replacement.

Verdict: Sell

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily)

Cash's attacking threat has seriously diminished. Of his 19 attempts on goal, 14 of those came before Gameweek 7. At the same time, Villa have also failed to keep a clean sheet since Gameweek 6.

He would be an easy sell if it weren't for the difficulty in deciding who to bring in, particularly if you already own the likes of Saliba and Kostas Tsimikas (£4.6m). I am considering an Arsenal defensive double-up or waiting a couple of weeks for Chelsea's fixtures to improve. 

Verdict: Sell
