FPL Gameweek 28 Scout Picks: Spurs double, Trossard in

We’ve chosen our best Fantasy Premier League (FPL) players for Gameweek 28.

The earlier deadline – Friday at 18:30 GMT – means we’ve moved the Scout Picks forward, so there’s a caveat that one or two injuries could emerge from the remaining press conferences to come.

In this upcoming round, six teams will be blank due to FA Cup quarter-final clashes. Those teams without a game are Brighton and Hove Albion, Fulham, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and West Ham United.

As always, we are limited to £83.0 million for our first XI. And after a reader votes before 2022/23, there’s also an overall prize cap of £100.0m for our 15-man roster.


Kepa Arrizabalaga (£4.7m) conceded just 13 goals in his 17 Premier League starts under Graham Potter, recording eight clean sheets in the process. Bonus points are also pouring in, with 10 coming in over the last 12 matches.

Since returning to a 3-4-3 formation, there has been a mini-revival at Chelsea, with back-to-back wins against Leicester City, Borussia Dortmund and Leeds United. A game against Everton is far from easy, it must be said, but the Toffees are on their way without a win under Sean Dyche.


FPL Double Gameweek 27 Differentials: Mbeumo, Chilwell + Elliott 2

Kieran Tripper (£6.1m) average more points per game (6.1) than any other midfielder or forward in FPL, except Erling Haaland (£12.1m) and Harry Kane (11.7m). With seven offensive returns and 14 clean sheets to his name in 25 appearances this season, Trippier is also second among outfield players for chances created. The last team to stop Nottingham Forest from scoring at The City Ground was Tottenham Hotspur all the way back in Gameweek 4, but the hosts could do without influential striker Brennan Johnson (£5.7m) this time around.

Our confidence in the Chelsea backline, who have had four clean sheets in their last six games at Stamford Bridge, is such that we’ve doubled up in the Blues’ rear. Ben Chillwell (£5.9m) has provided an attacking return in each of his last three games in all competitions and is subsequently Gameweek 28’s most bought player. His role in setplays was key in the final timeout, with all three the chances he created and indeed his volley opener as a result of corner situations.

On paper, Arsenal seem to be the favorite to shut out their opponents in Gameweek 28: only Newcastle United have conceded fewer goals all season. The north London club will face a Crystal Palace side who have gone unscored in eight of their 13 post-World Cup games and have found the back of the net less often than any other team. Gabriel Magellan (£5.2 million) is our squad, with his goal at Craven Cottage on Sunday bringing his tally to three for the season. In that time he recorded 23 attempts on goal, 17 shots into the box and four big chances, all outstanding totals among defenders.
