Sanchez and Lacazette bring goals to The Scout's Gameweek 10 line-up

Deprived of Harry Kane's (£12.7m) goals for Gameweek 10, The Scout turns to Arsenal's attack to supply the best XI.

Nick Pope (BUR) £4.5m

Since replacing the injured Tom Heaton (£4.8m), the 25-year-old has made more saves (30) than any other goalkeeper. Ahead of Newcastle United's visit, the Burnley defence have conceded only three big chances or gilt-edged opportunities in home matches; a tally bettered only by Liverpool.

Sead Kolasinac (ARS) £6.0m

The wing-back will raid down Arsenal's left and provide a major threat to Swansea City. A fifth clean sheet of the season looks within reach against an attack who have mustered only 21 shots and four shots on target on their travels, fewer than any other side.

The FPL Scout Selection for Gameweek 10
Nicolas Otamendi (MCI) £5.9m

Now the top-ranked FPL defender, the Argentinian will marshal a backline who have conceded the fewest goals (four), shots (56) and shots on target (14). Manchester City go to West Bromwich Albion as the only side yet to concede from a set-piece. Three of the Baggies seven goals have arrived from set-plays.

Alberto Moreno (LIV) £4.5m

The much-maligned Liverpool defence have conceded only a single goal and 23 shots in home matches, fewer than any other side. Moreno will push forward from left-back and faces a Huddersfield Town attack who had scored only one goal in their six outings before the 2-1 win over Manchester United.

Scott Dann (CRY) £4.7m

A towering presence in the opposition's penalty area, Dann will test a West Ham United defence who have conceded the most headed goals (five), while also shipping six from set-pieces, a tally matched only by Watford.

Alexis Sanchez (ARS) £11.8m

Sanchez will bid to build upon a 12-point return at Everton against Swansea having fired more shots (19) than any other midfielder in the last four Gameweeks. Likely deployed on Arsenal's left, he is set to torment an opponent who have allowed 43 chances created from the right of the defence, second only to Leicester City (45).

Richarlison (WAT) £6.3m

The Brazilian tops the shot charts (32) for FPL midfielders ahead of a match with a Stoke City defence who have conceded 20 goals, more than any other side. Richarlison has been involved in (scored or assisted) 58% of the Hornets' goals when on the pitch.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £9.1m

Scoring in five of his eight starts, the Egyptian is second to Richarlison for shots (31) from midfield. However, 18 of those efforts have been on target, a tally bettered only by one player: Harry Kane (21). Salah wears our Gameweek 10 armband for Huddersfield Town's visit.

David Silva (MCI) £8.6m

The playmaker looks the most assured option in Pep Guardiola's attack for a visit to The Hawthorns having been rested for the midweek Carabao Cup tie. Silva has four goals and three assists in 10 matches against the Baggies, only scoring more against Newcastle United (five) over his Premier League career.

Alvaro Morata (CHE) £10.3m

Subdued on his return to the starting XI against Watford, the Spaniard is nonetheless backed to improve his form away at AFC Bournemouth. Morata has scored four goals in three Chelsea appearances away from home, recording seven big chances, more than any other player.

Alexandre Lacazette (ARS) £10.3m

In contrast to Morata, Lacazette has saved his best performances for home matches. The Frenchman has scored four goals across three of his four Emirates Stadium encounters ahead of Swansea's visit.
