Fantasy Premier League: Gameweek 15 Scout Report

Fantasy Premier League: Gameweek 15 Scout Report
Find out who the Scout thinks you should be considering for your FPL squad this weekend.

Manchester City travel to Watford in Saturday's 17:30 (UK) kick-off hoping to claim a seventh-successive victory in all competitions.

Pep Guardiola's men have been in scintillating form but know we'll need to be at our best once again to grab all three points against the Hornets.

This weekend's opponents pushed Chelsea to their absolute limits in midweek and, under the tutelage of new boss Claudio Ranieri, also recently put four past Manchester United at Vicarage Road.

It leaves FPL managers with some difficult selections to make ahead of Saturday's 11:00 deadline.

Thankfully, the Scout is on hand to provide you with some all-important stats and advice to make those decisions a little easier.

This weekend's Matchday Live host, Natalie Pike, also reveals who she's expecting to thrive across Gameweek 15.

CITY STAR

The Scout: Phil Foden (£8.1m) can deliver another huge away haul in Fantasy Premier League as Manchester City visit Watford in Gameweek 15.

The midfielder has averaged 7.8 points per away match, including his season-high haul of 18 points against Brighton & Hove Albion in Gameweek 9.

Despite only featuring in four away fixtures in 2021/22, Foden has boasted a major goal threat.

Away from home, his 11 shots in the box rank second for City, while his three big chances and six shots on target are both team-leading totals.

After being rested against Aston Villa in midweek, Foden will be fully refreshed for the clash at Vicarage Road on Saturday evening.

Watford are also among only sides yet to keep a clean sheet this season, lifting the appeal of Foden and City’s attackers as major armband options this weekend.

Natalie's Matchday Live pick: Raheem Sterling (£10.6m) has an incredible record against Watford, scoring ten times in eight games, including a goal or assist in every match since Pep Guardiola took charge in 2016.

He’s also in great form - we can see him regaining his confidence and I fancy him to get even more goals against Watford.

Opponent to watch

The Scout: Emmanuel Dennis (£5.4m) is the hosts’ form player, with three goals and three assists is his last three appearances.

Natalie's Matchday Live pick: Emmanuel Dennis. He is Watford’s highest scoring player this season and also statistically the second most in-form player in the game at the moment.

He got a goal against Chelsea in the last Gameweek too, he’s a brilliant player and Watford have looked good since Ranieri’s taken over.

"They’ve got some good fixtures coming up after facing City as well, and he’s incredible value."

WATCH: Guardiola delighted by Rodrigo consistency

Premier League Pick

The Scout: Managers who are looking elsewhere for a captain in Gameweek 15 should consider Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) or Son Heung-min (£10.4m).

Salah has averaged 12.7 points per away match ahead of Liverpool’s visit to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Tottenham Hotspur’s Son hosts a Norwich City side who have conceded a league-high 17 away goals.

Natalie's Matchday Live pick: It’s got to be Diogo Jota (£7.9m), he’s the most transferred-in player in the last week of FPL and it’s easy to see why.

With Roberto Firmino out, he has fit into the front three seamlessly.

He’s in great form and with Mo Salah going to the African Cup of Nations in January, he’ll continue to be a consistent starter for sure.
