Time to be excited again as Fantasy Premier League Gameweek Five is here to end the first International break of the season. This article will provide some tips for FPL managers to get back to the FPL lifestyle.
Fantasy Premier League Gameweek Five Picks
As most of the players were involved in international football, one must follow the team news very closely this week. Thankfully for FPL managers, the African stars including Mohamed Salah (£12.5) and Sadio Mané (£11.5) got a break. This is due to the African Nations Championship, which is only open to players currently playing in their own national league.
Nick Pope (£4.6) is one of the most popular goalkeeper picks this season. He has a good chance to get a good score this week away to Brighton & Hove Albion. The Seagulls lost 0-2 to Southampton last time they were playing at home. Burnley will not make things any easier for them. In fact, the clarets got a big win in this fixture last season.
There are a few keepers who could have a monster score this week if things go their way. Ben Foster, Rui Patricio and Kasper Schmeichel all have tough games. However, there is also the potential for them to make a lot of saves. Are you brave enough to take a punt on any of them?
Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.1) has the potential to go big this week. He should go forward a lot against Newcastle United at home. He already has three assists to his name. Certainly, there is a decent chance that he will add to his tally in this game. A clean sheet is also likely.
Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.6) has started all the matches for Manchester City this season. If he starts again this week, there is a good chance for him to do well. Norwich City seems vulnerable down the right which was exploited by Arthur Masuaku last week. Can Zinchenko do the same? He should be confident after scoring for Ukraine.
Daniel James (£6.1) just can’t stop scoring it seems. The Welsh midfielder has already scored three goals for Manchester United and scored for his national side as well this week. He has a tricky game against Leicester City this week. Can he keep his scoring run going?
Sergio Agüero (£12.1) is in great form. He is also well-rested as he did not feature for Argentina. Norwich City’s defence is not that strong as well. Everything points to the Argentine striker having a good game. Whether that happens or not only time will tell.
Harry Kane (£11.0) failed big time the last time he played at home. He has another decent home matchup this week. He should do well.
Roberto Firmino (£9.5) is having a good season so far. He is definitely a good option this week.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0) scored against Watford last season and is the primary source of goals for Arsenal. The Gabonese can score at any instance and the Hornets could get stung by him once again this week.
