Austin leads the line for best XI: Scout Selection

      No Comments on Austin leads the line for best XI: Scout Selection

Fantasy Premier League managers are turning to midfielders as their main source of goals, although striker Charlie Austin (£6.2m) has the form to correct the balance.

The Southampton forward has four goals from four starts ahead of Saturday’s match with Huddersfield Town.

Austin makes the cut as a lone frontman, as the select XI for Gameweek 19 lines up in a 4-5-1 formation.

Adrian (WHU) £4.3m
The West Ham United goalkeeper heads into a home match with Newcastle United on the back of three successive clean sheets. Adrian has saved 84.6% of his shots faced, placing third behind FPL favourites Nick Pope (£4.8m and 86.7%) and David De Gea (£5.9m and 85.0%).

Marcos Alonso (CHE) £7.0m
Now ranked second in the overall defender standings behind Antonio Valencia (£6.9m), Alonso has produced a goal and an assist in his previous two Gameweeks. With 34 shots over the season, 14 more than any other defender, he promises another double-figure score at Everton on Saturday.

Nicolas Otamendi (MCI) £6.2m
The Manchester City centre-back is tied with Alonso on four goals as another defender who can contribute attacking points to accompany clean sheet returns. He faces an AFC Bournemouth attack who have recorded just four big chances in away matches, fewer than any other side.
