Fantasy Premier League

Double Gameweek stars dominate Scout Selection

The Scout turns to nine players who all offer the potential for two appearances over the seven-day Gameweek

After a 96-point return from our Gameweek 36 line-up, we are optimistic our latest XI can better that tally.

With nine players offering the prospect of two starts, there is the opportunity to break into three figures as Fantasy Premier League managers head into an extended Gameweek anticipating big scores.

GW37 FPL Scout Selection

Willy Caballero (Man City) £4.8m

The Manchester City goalkeeper has five clean sheets in his last 10 starts ahead of successive home encounters with Leicester City and West Bromwich Albion. We are backing Caballero to continue the recent trend set by goalkeepers who have excelled in Double Gameweeks, highlighted by Southampton'sFraser Forster (£5.0m), who supplied 17 points in Gameweek 36.

Nacho Monreal (Arsenal) 5.9m

The versatile Monreal offers the most secure starter among Arsenal's FPL defenders, either as a centre-back or left wing-back. Arsenal visit a Stoke City side who have netted only 10 times in their last 13 Premier League outings, failing to score on seven of those occasions. Arsenal then host Sunderland in midweek.

Maya Yoshida (Southampton) £4.5m

Now a vital figure in the heart of Claude Puel's rearguard, no FPL defender has bettered his five shots inside the box over the last four Gameweeks ahead of a trip to Middlesbrough and a St Mary's meeting with Manchester United.

Chris Brunt (West Brom) £4.8m

Shifted onto the West Brom right over the last two Gameweeks, Brunt's attacking potential suggests he could still profit from testing encounters with Chelsea and Manchester City. He has created 37 chances this term - more than any other team-mate - and is likely to dominate set-piece delivery, a vital weapon for Tony Pulis's team.

Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal) £11.6m

Back on the scoresheet in the midweek win at Southampton, Sanchez has 14 goals on his travels - more than any other player - and visits a Stoke City defence with one clean sheet in their last eight matches. A midweek home match against Sunderland also strengthens his chances of retaining top spot in the FPL player standings. Sanchez wears our captain's armband.

Josh King (AFC Bournemouth) £6.2m

One of only two players in our selection with a single fixture, King continues to offer outstanding FPL value, returning 11 goals and a pair of assists in his previous 13 appearances. Owned by over 19% of managers, he entertains a Burnley side that have conceded at least twice in three of their previous four fixtures.

Kevin De Bruyne (Man City) £10.4m

The most popular transfer target among midfielders ahead of tonight’s deadline, De Bruyne’s 17-point tally at home to Crystal Palace was his second double-figure haul in four appearances. A secure pick under Pep Guardiola, he has played in 33 of City’s 35 Premier League matches and is likely to earn back-to-back starts as they bid to seal a top-three finish.

Cesc Fabregas (Chelsea) £6.9m

A victory over West Brom would clinch the title for Chelsea, increasing the likelihood that Antonio Conte will shuffle the pack for Monday's meeting with Watford. While that makes us wary of opting for Blues assets, Fabregas may well overcome that rotation having delivered three double-digit hauls in his previous six starts.

Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur) £11.7m

Two fixtures against Manchester United and Leicester City affords the Spurs striker an opportunity to claw back a three-goal deficit on Romelu Lukaku (£10.2m) in the race for this season's Golden Boot. Kane has found the net 21 times in his last 23 starts since mid-September and has averaged 6.5 points per match - more than any other FPL forward.

CC

Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City) £8.9m

The top transfer target for the second successive Gameweek,  City's January signing has earned over 176,000 new owners for his two home fixtures. Jesus has wasted little time in settling at the Etihad Stadium, serving up four goals and a pair of assists in only five starts under Pep Guardiola.

Fernando Llorente (Swansea City) £6.1m

A trip to Sunderland looks vital to the Swans' survival plight, and Llorente's aerial power could be decisive. The Black Cats have conceded 13 headed goals this season, joint most with Hull City, while no player has netted more headers than Llorente's six. He also has history against the Wearsiders, bagging two goals and 13 FPL points in the reverse fixture back in Gameweek 15.
