Fantasy Premier League: Gameweek Seven Scout Report

Fantasy Premier League: Gameweek Seven Scout Report
Which City stars should you consider for your FPL team this weekend?

City round off a week of high-profile away matches with a trip to Anfield on Sunday 3 October, with kick-off scheduled for 16:30pm (UK).

Pep Guardiola's men will be keen to shake off Tuesday's slender Champions League defeat at the Parc des Princes against Paris Saint-Germain when we lock horns with the Reds for top spot in the Premier League.

However, with last weekend's deserved 1-0 victory away to Chelsea still fresh in the mind, the players will make the short journey to Merseyside confident that we can once again carve out a vital three points away to a potential title rival.

It's first vs. second on Sunday afternoon, and FPL players have had an embarrassment of riches to choose from when deciding on both City and Liverpool stars for their respective teams this season.

As part of our regular series, the Scout reveals which City star they have tipped to pick up the points, as well as an opponent to watch and another Premier League player who could stand out this weekend.


Matchday Live host Natalie Pike also offers her thoughts ahead of Saturday morning's 11:00am deadline.

Can Pep Guardiola's men keep a sixth-successive Premier League clean sheet when we face Liverpool? Can Gabriel Jesus keep up his rich vein of form? And will our defence nullify the threat of Mo Salah, this season's highest FPL points-earner so far?

Check out who the Scout and Natalie have chose in our Gameweek Seven predictions below...

City Star

The Scout: A visit to Liverpool gives Manchester City the chance to leapfrog their hosts at the top of the table in Gameweek 7 of Fantasy Premier League.

Pep Guardiola’s side have won back-to-back league matches on the road, including a 1-0 victory at title rivals Chelsea last weekend.

Having scored the decisive goal at Stamford Bridge, Gabriel Jesus (£8.6m) will be a key figure for Sunday’s encounter at Anfield.

Since making his first start of the season in Gameweek 2, he has produced two goals and three assists.


Jesus has been involved in 46% of Man City’s goals when on the pitch in that period, more than any other regular.

After featuring as a late substitute in the UEFA Champions League in midweek, he will be fully refreshed for the clash with Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Natalie's Matchday Live Pick: My pick for this week is Gabriel Jesus. He scored the winner against Chelsea last week and the work rate he puts in is insane, he plays with his heart and puts everything into the game.

I'd expect him to come back into the starting line-up at Anfield and hopefully that work-rate will pay off with a goal or some assists.

Following his incredible display against Chelsea, I'm backing Gabriel Jesus!

Opponent to watch

The Scout: Mohamed Salah (£12.6m) is the Merseysiders’ dangerman, scoring in each of their last six matches in all competitions.

Natalie's Matchday Live Pick: The player you sadly have to pick is Mohamed Salah.

He's one of the most picked players in the game and is unbelievably consistent.

Premier League Pick

The Scout: Elsewhere, Romelu Lukaku (£11.7m) and Michail Antonio (£8.0m) offer strong options for the Gameweek 7 captaincy in FPL.

Since returning to Chelsea, Lukaku’s 15 shots and 14 shots in the box are team-leading totals.  He hosts a Southampton side who are yet to win a match this term.

West Ham United’s Antonio, meanwhile, welcomes Brentford on the back of five goals and four assists in five appearances in 2021/22.

Natalie's Matchday Live pick: Arsenal earned an incredible win against Spurs last weekend. They were brilliant, and a large part of that came from Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka.

They absolutely ran the North London derby and have got Arsenal running through their veins - we know as City fans how much that means to us with Phil Foden!

Arsenal look like they're finally starting to click, so I'd definitely look at getting one of Smith Rowe or Saka in your team.
