GW7 Scout Selection: More joy for Mitrovic

The Scout 28 Sep 2018

Fulham striker earns a place in The Scout’s XI as Sergio Aguero is handed the captain's armband for Gameweek 7

Aleksandar Mitrovic (£7.0m) remains one of the most sought-after players in Fantasy Premier League.

Fulham’s top scorer has been transferred in by over 167,000 managers for Gameweek 7, nearly twice the number of any other forward.

He has now been the most bought striker in FPL for four consecutive Gameweeks.

Mitrovic has scored five goals and supplied an assist in his last five matches ahead of a trip to Everton.

The Serb’s eye for goal clinches his place in a 3-4-3 formation for Gameweek 7.

Neil Etheridge (CAR) £4.6m

The Cardiff City goalkeeper has returned 20 points over his three home fixtures. Etheridge could claim a third clean sheet of the season against visitors Burnley, who have scored only two goals in their three away matches.

Kieran Trippier (TOT) £6.1m

The Tottenham Hotspur right-back offers the prospect of a bumper haul at Huddersfield Town. Trippier has two double-figure hauls from five appearances and provided two assists and a clean sheet in the corresponding fixture last term.

Matt Doherty (WOL) £4.4m

A big attacking threat, Doherty’s total of eight shots inside the penalty area is joint-top for defenders. Wolverhampton Wanderers have conceded just two goals in the last four Gameweeks ahead of Southampton’s visit to Molineux.

Kyle Walker (MCI) £6.6m

A consistent source of returns, the Manchester City right-back has delivered at least six points in four of his five Gameweek appearances. His raids forward will trouble Brighton & Hove Albion at the Etihad Stadium, with Pep Guardiola’s side expected to dominate in attack.

Richarlison (EVE) £6.6m

The second most transferred-in midfielder this season, with over 1.47m new owners, Richarlison has scored three goals in his four Gameweek appearances for the Toffees. His visitors Fulham have conceded 43 shots on target, more than any other side.

Ryan Fraser (BOU) £5.9m

AFC Bournemouth’s winger has shown strong home form ahead of a visit from Crystal Palace. Fraser has scored all three of his goals at the Vitality Stadium, totalling 31 points in front of his own supporters.

James Maddison (LEI) £6.8m

The most-bought midfielder in the Gameweek, the 21-year-old has been transferred in by over 181,000 managers for the trip to Newcastle United. Maddison has scored in back-to-back Gameweeks and his delivery from set-plays could be decisive.

Raheem Sterling (MCI) £11.0m

Man City’s winger can be a big differential pick for the encounter with Brighton. Sterling has scored in both his home appearances this season, yet is owned by just 3.4 per cent of FPL managers.

Sergio Aguero (MCI) £11.4m

His average of 11 points per home match, including a hat-trick against Huddersfield, reflects Aguero’s ability to deliver big hauls at the Etihad Stadium. He has also produced 31 shots, more than any other player, and is selected as the Gameweek 7 captain.

Harry Kane (TOT) £12.4m

Four of Kane’s eight shots on target this season were recorded against Brighton last weekend. That highlights his improving form for the trip to Huddersfield, where he scored two goals in 2017/18. He is the vice-captain for Gameweek 7.

Aleksandar Mitrovic (FUL) £7.0m

The Serb has fired 12 shots on target this season, more than any other player. Mitrovic seems set for another productive weekend at Everton, one of just three sides yet to record a clean sheet.

What the FPL experts say

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity): A big budget and in-form front line should deliver goals in favourable fixtures. Sterling and Walker will support the popular Aguero in their home match, with three goals between them in their last two Premier League fixtures at the Etihad.

Ash (@FPL Hints): Trippier was unlucky not to keep a clean sheet last week. He is a good option for defensive and attacking returns against Huddersfield.

Mark McGettigan (): Eleven solid picks. Trippier and Doherty are fighting it out to replace Mendy as one of my free transfers this week. Mitrovic is another player who could be in my squad by the time Saturday rolls around. He's the real deal.

Ben Crabtree (@FC_CrabDogg): The team looks good all round and I have a lot of vested interest in it doing well. Could be a high average this week.

Neal Thurman (@neiljthurman): West Ham United’s defence has been a cure for many scoring ills so I'm inclined to go with Romelu Lukaku (£11.1m) over Kane.

Sam, FPL Family (@FPLFamily): I’m not surprised to see Man City and Spurs supply a total of five players for the XI due to their strong fixtures. Maddison has stood out for Leicester over the last few Gameweeks and could even be a potential captain.

Paul Gee (@fplPaulGee): I tend to use the midweek teamsheets to predict the weekend line-ups. Kane and Sterling are examples of players who were rested in the Carabao Cup, with Sterling’s low ownership making him a big differential.
