GW10 Selection: Arnautovic to deliver against Leicester

The Scout 26 Oct 2018

West Ham United forward earns a place in The Scout’s best XI as Mohamed Salah is handed the captaincy

Marko Arnautovic (£7.0m) can play his way into the plans of Fantasy Premier League managers this weekend.

Although Arnautovic has not scored in the last two Gameweeks, his statistics point to goals for his trip to Leicester City.

No player has bettered the Austrian's totals of 10 shots on goal or five shots on target in that period.

The West Ham United striker faces a Leicester defence with only one clean sheet in the last seven Gameweeks.

Arnautovic earns his place in a 3-4-3 formation for Gameweek 10, with Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) taking the captain's armband.

Rui Patricio (WOL) £4.6m

He has produced four clean sheets and 36 of his 42 FPL points in the last six Gameweeks. That form can continue at Brighton & Hove Albion, whose total of 38 shots in home matches ranks second-bottom.

Andrew Robertson (LIV) £6.4m

A consistent source of points, Robertson earned an assist or kept a clean sheet in seven of the first nine Gameweeks. The Liverpool left-back has averaged 8.25 points per home match ahead of a visit from Cardiff City.

Jose Holebas (WAT) £4.8m

The Watford defender has tallied 31 of his 35 points in home matches and now welcomes Huddersfield Town to Vicarage Road. Holebas's total of 17 chances created is more than any other defender in FPL.   

Marcos Alonso (CHE) £7.0m

Chelsea's left-back offers multiple routes to points away to Burnley. Alonso has produced three clean sheets and three assists in his four away appearances, averaging 8.5 points per match.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £12.8m

The Liverpool midfielder returned to form with two goals in their midweek UEFA Champions League win over Red Star Belgrade at Anfield. Salah has scored in three of his four home matches and is the Gameweek 10 captain.

Sadio Mane (LIV) £9.7m

Also on the scoresheet for Liverpool in midweek, Mane can maintain his momentum against a Cardiff defence who have conceded 17 goals in the last six Gameweeks.

James Maddison (LEI) £7.0m

Leicester City's playmaker has supplied a goal or an assist in three of his four home matches. His visitors, West Ham, are without a clean sheet on their travels this season.

Ryan Fraser (£6.0m)

The AFC Bournemouth winger is ranked second top among FPL midfielders on 51 points. Fraser has been bought by over 71,000 managers for his trip to Fulham, the only side yet to record a clean sheet.

Aleksandar Mitrovic (FUL) £6.9m

At home, his totals of 22 shots and 15 shots inside the penalty area are ranked second among FPL forwards. Mitrovic has scored or assisted 64 per cent of Fulham's goals ahead of their home encounter with the Cherries.

Alexandre Lacazette (ARS) £9.7m

Arsenal's striker visits Crystal Palace, having produced a goal or an assist in six of the last seven Gameweeks. Lacazette has 29 FPL points over his three away starts and is the vice captain for Gameweek 10.

Marko Arnautovic (WHU) £7.0m

West Ham's frontman has supplied a consistent source of returns in recent away fixtures. Arnautovic has two goals, an assist and 18 points in his previous three away trips.

What the experts say

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity): Expect the trio of left-backs to return clean sheets, attacking returns and bonus points. Mitrovic is on his last chance for me after a dry spell for goals, although Fraser could hamper this by exploiting an already frail Fulham defence.

Ben Crabtree (@FC_CrabDogg): I don't have much of this team, so I will be backing other players to score highly. I'm hopeful Holebas can prove his worth upon his return and this is likely to be Fraser's last game for me. The team looks balanced for points but I think there's some Manchester City missing. Raheem Sterling (£11.2m) would be in there for me.

Lee Bonfield (@FPLFamily): Lovely selection this week, with a big home win at Anfield being heavily backed. I noticed Tottenham Hotspur's home match with Man City has been avoided altogether, but I would have backed the visitors and included Sterling. Fraser and Mitrovic should also both do well in the inevitable goal-fest at Craven Cottage.

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily): Robertson, Holebas and Alonso look certain of clean sheets this week and also offer big attacking potential. I reckon that Robertson is also a potential captain option. I’m not sold on Patricio in goal away to Brighton, however, and would have preferred Ben Foster (£4.5m).

Paul Gee (@fplPaulGee): Another good Scout Selection. I love that Sergio Aguero (£11.3m) is left out and Lacazette is included. Lacazette is nailed-on to play after only 10 minutes in Thursday's UEFA Europa League fixture. Given that Palace seem to be in a downward spiral and Arsenal are in fine form, there could be a lot of goals.
