GW14 Scout Selection: Martial's road show to go on

The Scout 29 Nov 2018

The Scout says Man Utd winger can extend fine away record at Southampton as Sergio Aguero is made captain

The form on the road of Anthony Martial (£7.6m) earns him a second consecutive week in The Scout’s best XI for Gameweek 14 of Fantasy Premier League.

The Manchester United winger heads to Southampton in fine form, despite his blank at home to Crystal Palace last weekend, with six goals and an assist in the last six Gameweeks.

The Frenchman's reliable away record adds to his attraction. He has scored at Chelsea, AFC Bournemouth and Manchester City in his last three away fixtures.

Martial takes his place in a 4-3-3 formation, with Sergio Aguero (£11.5m) handed the captaincy and Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) made vice-captain.

The Scout's Gameweek 13 XI earned 66 points, 16 more than the average.

Wayne Hennessey (CRY) £4.5m

The Palace goalkeeper faces Burnley at home after a season-high total of 10 points at Old Trafford. Hennessey has produced at least one save point in eight of his 13 appearances.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) £5.2m

The most-bought defender in the Gameweek, earning more than 184,000 new owners for the visit of neighbours Everton. Alexander-Arnold has 25 points over the last two Gameweeks.

Matt Doherty (WOL) £4.9m

The wing-back has boasted a big attacking threat as Wolverhampton Wanderers travel to Cardiff City. Doherty’s seven shots and nine chances created over the last four Gameweeks both rank in the top three for defenders.

Christopher Schindler (HUD) £4.3m

The Huddersfield Town centre-half is one of FPL’s form defenders. Schindler faces Brighton & Hove Albion at home, having returned 32 points in the last six Gameweeks. 

Marcos Alonso (CHE) £7.1m

The Chelsea left-back has soared to the top of the FPL defender standings thanks to his outstanding consistency. He has returned at least six points in nine of his 13 appearances ahead of a home match with Fulham.

Raheem Sterling (MCI) £11.4m

The City winger is the top-scoring player in FPL after a goal and two assists at West Ham United last weekend. Sterling is among the big captaincy contenders for Gameweek 14, having averaged 11 points per home match.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £13.0m

The Liverpool winger has scored in five of his six home appearances as Everton travel to Anfield. No player has bettered Salah’s 12 shots on target in home matches this season.

Anthony Martial (MUN) £7.6m

His 10 shots on target in the last six Gameweeks ranks joint-top with Salah for FPL midfielders. Martial has supplied 32 points in his last three away fixtures. 

Raul Jimenez (WOL) £5.9m

A big threat in recent matches, Jimenez's totals of 15 shots and 11 shots inside the penalty area in the last four Gameweeks both rank him second overall. He goes to Cardiff, who are without a clean sheet in 10 matches.

Sergio Aguero (MCI) £11.5m

At home, the Argentinian’s totals of 38 shots and 29 shots inside the penalty area are both more than any other player. He also has a goal or an assist in all seven of his home matches this season.

Marko Arnautovic (WHU) £7.1m

The West Ham striker's eight shots on target over his last four matches places him second overall. Arnautovic travels to face a Newcastle United defence with just one clean sheet in their seven home fixtures.

What the experts say 

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity): I like the attack here: a Man City double-up, plus Arnautovic and Jimenez should reap points. It could be a good time to go 4-3-3, especially with favourable fixtures for many budget defenders.

Paul Gee (FplPaulGee): Having no Chelsea attackers at home to Fulham could be dangerous. I worry for Martial’s minutes as he has played twice this week and I reckon Jose Mourinho could freshen up his options.

Nick and Tom (@WGTA_FPL): A strong side that, encouragingly for us, omits Hazard, as he's been sold for Sterling. One small gripe is not having Jonas Lossl (£4.4m) and Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£4.2m) instead of Hennessey and Schindler in defence.

Ben Crabtree (@FC_Crabdogg): I like the Schindler pick but think someone from the Chelsea attack is worth a punt. Doubling up of Wolves players could backfire at Cardiff.

Sam Bonfield (@FPL Family): The defensive selections look solid. Alonso and Alexander-Arnold can earn both clean sheets and attacking returns. I have Hazard over Sterling and that’s a real worry as I think Sterling will be the highest-scoring player this Gameweek.

Lee Bonfield (@FPL Family): A very sensible choice to stay out of the north London derby. It’s a tough one to call, but I would have stuck a Tottenham Hotspur player in there. I reckon Son Heung-min (£8.3m) will do well.

Neal Thurman (@nealjthurman): The Watford defence are shipping points to opposing forwards like a relegation-threatened side. I have a feeling Jamie Vardy (£8.9m) can profit from his generous guests at the King Power.
