GW22 Selection: Bank on Sane for home points

The Scout 11 Jan 2019

The Scout says Man City winger's Etihad form can continue for the visit of Wolves

The home form of Leroy Sane (£9.5m) earns him a recall to The Scout’s best XI for Gameweek 22 of Fantasy Premier League.

The Manchester City winger has started eight matches at the Etihad Stadium and produced a goal or an FPL assist in seven.

Sane has averaged 7.9 points per home start ahead of the Monday evening match with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

That earns him a place in a 4-5-1 formation, with Mohamed Salah (£13.3m) handed the armband and Eden Hazard (£11.1m) given the vice-captaincy.

Vicente Guaita (CRY) £4.2m

The Spaniard has three clean sheets in five appearances since becoming Crystal Palace’s No 1 in Gameweek 17. Guaita can extend that run at home to Watford on Saturday.

Ricardo Pereira (LEI) £5.3m

The versatile Leicester City full-back has earned 164,000 transfers in for Gameweek 22, more than any other defender. Pereira has 30 points in the last four Gameweeks ahead of a visit from Southampton.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) £5.2m

Liverpool’s right-back has delivered three double-figure returns in his last seven Gameweek appearances. Alexander-Arnold can bring in points at both ends of the pitch for the visit to Brighton & Hove Albion.

Sean Morrison (CAR) £4.7m

A big goal threat for Cardiff City, his 19 shots inside the penalty area is bettered by only two other defenders. Morrison’s opponents, Huddersfield Town, have scored only 13 goals this season, the fewest in the league.

David Luiz (CHE) £5.9m

One of the form defenders in FPL, the Chelsea centre-back has 39 points from the previous six Gameweeks. David Luiz faces a Newcastle United side with one goal in their last four matches.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £13.3m

The top-scoring player in FPL, Salah has three sets of double-figure hauls in his last four matches. He was on the scoresheet against Brighton earlier in the season, netting in a 1-0 win in Gameweek 3.

Eden Hazard (CHE) £11.1m

No midfielder has bettered Hazard's 10 shots inside the penalty area over the past four Gameweeks. Hazard produced two goals in the corresponding fixture last season and also scored at St James’ Park in Gameweek 3.

Leroy Sane (MCI) £9.5m

Sane goes in search of his fifth double-figure haul of 2018/19 on Monday night. Wolves travel to the Etihad Stadium with just one clean sheet in 13 Gameweeks.

Richarlison (EVE) £6.9m

The Brazilian’s 14 shots inside the penalty area in the last six Gameweeks are more than any other FPL midfielder. AFC Bournemouth travel to Goodison Park having conceded 12 goals in the last three Gameweeks.

David Brooks (BOU) £5.1m

The in-form winger has been a standout cut-price pick in recent weeks, with 24 points in his last four fixtures. Brooks faces an Everton defence without a clean sheet in eight attempts.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (ARS) £11.4m

The Arsenal forward will be among the main captain contenders for the trip to West Ham United. Aubameyang has four goals and an assist over his last four matches.

What the experts say

Ash (@FPLHints): Pereira offers exceptional value as an out-of-position player and his Fantasy returns can't be ignored. He is a premium player in the making and gradually becoming a must-have.

Lee Bonfield (@FPLFamily): What a line-up! Some heavy hitters in there this week. Aubameyang, in particular, has wonderful underlying statistics and an explosive return is just around the corner. Could West Ham’s leaky defence, which will be missing Fabian Balbuena (£4.4m) this week, be punished?

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily): A couple of really different picks in there this week! I had Morrison for the early part of the season. All the stats and data said he was a great pick but the team didn’t start well. With a nice fixture this week I can see him doing well. Aubameyang is due a haul, but I’m also be tempted by Sergio Aguero (£11.2m), too.

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity_): This could be the week for mid-priced defenders to shine. I’d also be tempted to include Lucas Digne (£5.2m) alongside Pereira and Alexander-Arnold. Aubameyang is one player I’m nervous of not owning this weekend, but I hope Harry Kane (£12.6m) can deliver against a Manchester United backline who are still struggling.
