Latest - GW12 Scout Selection

The Fantasy Premier League scout has picked the best possible team for GW12 - check it out below.

Manchester City duo Joao Cancelo (£6.5) and Phil Foden (£8.3) are selected, as City host Everton at the Etihad on Sunday.

Harry Kane (£12.2) also makes the cut, having scored seven, yes SEVEN goals in two matches over the course of the international break.

A surprise inclusion is Newcastle striker Callum Wilson (£7.4) who faces Brentford at St. James' Park on Saturday afternoon where he'll be looking to impress his new boss (or old boss) Eddie Howe.

Here are our top GK picks for GW12.

Star Signing – Hugo Lloris (£5.4m)

POTENTIAL POINTS - The French World Cup winner is a quality option going forward

Antonio Conte's reign with Spurs started with a clean sheet in the Premier League, and we think there could be more to follow!

Tottenham face Leeds, Burnley, Brentford and Norwich in their next four fixtures.

Bargain Buy – Alex McCarthy (£4.6m)

SAFE HANDS - More clean sheets could be on the way for the Saints

Southampton have kept two clean sheets in their last two fixtures, with McCarthy picking up 17 points in that time.

The Saints come up against a Norwich side in GW12 which has struggled to find the back of the net all season.


These two differentials could score BIG in GW12.

Star Signing – Kurt Zouma (£5.4m)

DOMINANT DEFENDER - Zouma dominates in the air

Kurt Zouma has tallied up 23 points over the past four gameweeks, securing two clean sheets and scoring one goal in that time period.

The Frenchman is a SERIOUS threat from set-pieces and West Ham come up against a frail Wolves side in GW12.

Bargain Buy – Emerson Royal (£4.9m)

NEW BEGINNINGS - Emerson could shine under Conte

Our next defensive pick is another Spurs man, Emerson Royal, who like Lloris has an excellent run of upcoming fixtures.

Emerson also poses a real attacking threat, as he supports the attack a great deal, with Conte deploying the Brazilian in his famous wing-back position.


We've focused on two low-priced midfielders this week.

Star Signing – Jarrod Bowen (£6.3m)

THE POSTMAN - Bowen always delivers

Amazingly, Jarrod Bowen has blanked just once in the past seven gameweeks!

The Hammers winger, available for only £6.3, is still only selected by 1.9% of FPL managers, so he could be a great differential in your mini-league!

Bargain Buy – Conor Gallagher (£5.8m)

WONDERKID - Gallagher is truly a top talent

Conor Gallagher has produced two double-digit hauls in a row and is now the second-highest point scoring midfielder, at just £5.8!

Crystal Palace face Burnley, Aston Villa and Leeds next, so you could opt to go with penalty-taking Wilfried Zaha (£7.0) instead too.


The forwards really haven't been producing lately, but these two could turn things around...

Star Signing – Harry Kane (£12.2m)

The REMONTADA - Can Kane re-find his form under a new coach?

England captain Harry Kane is the third Spurs player in our tips for gameweek 12, with the North Londoners' fixtures just so enticing!

Kane has only scored one goal so far this season, but we believe he could be re-invigorated under the new head coach, Antonio Conte.

Bargain Buy – Adam Armstrong (£5.9m)

CHEAP AS CHIPS - Armstrong is great value for money

Saints forward, Adam Armstrong has picked up 14 points in the past two gameweeks, with a goal, assist and three bonus points in that time.

Southampton come up against 20th place Norwich in their next fixture where Armstrong will be looking to capitalise on a weak defence.

Robert Sanchez replacements

With Brighton's goalkeeper, Robert Sanchez (£4.6) suspended for GW 12, some of you may be looking for a replacement in net.

Gunners goalie, Aaron Ramsdale (£4.7) is our number one pick for the price range, having produced 17 points in his last two FPL appearances.

Vicente Guita (£4.6) may also be a good choice in net, and with Vieira's Palace getting better and better you can't go wrong with this £4.6 option.

Take a look at some of the other 'keepers you could consider for GW12 below.

Chelsea duo on FIRE!

Chelsea's wing-back duo, Ben Chilwell (£6.0) and Reece James (£5.9) have been producing BIG returns in the past few gameweeks!

Reece James has totalled an incredible 41 points in just the past three gameweeks, and also picked up an assist for England as they beat Albania 5-0.

Fellow Blues teammate Ben Chilwell has tallied up 45 points in his past five appearances in the Premier League.

Time to move for Jota?

With Roberto Firmino (£8.8) ruled out with a hamstring injury for at least a month, we expect Portuguese star Diogo Jota (£7.5) to start most of Liverpool's game's in the number nine position.

As you can see from FPL Olympian's analysis, Jota's expected goals per 90 minutes (excluding penalties) is almost the exact same as Mo Salah's (£13.0)!

So, it could be a smart move to bring in the cheaper option, or even double up on the two Liverpool midfielders!
