Fantasy Football Scout: Who do the odds suggest you should have in your team? 

Much like they did in the last gameweek, the odds against suggest backing the team against West Brom. So with that in mind, it could be the week to have a number of Man Utd players.

Bruno Fernandes’ odds of scoring are the lowest they have been since the season began, and he arrives here in good form, having netted twice and assisted once last gameweek. 

West Brom are the least likely side to keep a clean sheet this week, with Newcastle the second least likely. 

Newcastle welcome a Chelsea side who have scored 14 goals in their last four games in all competitions. Frank Lampard’s team are really starting to click and whilst he struggled in the opening few games, Timo Werner is starting to find his feet in the Premier League. 

The German forward is the joint most likely player to score this gameweek according to the odds.
