Fantasy Premier League: GW4 Dream Team

An incredible GW3 punished many who opted to wildcard with Manchester City and Wolves suffering heavy defeats.

Both sides have favourable fixtures going into the fourth round of fixtures, facing Leeds United and Fulham respectively.

There are numerous dilemmas going into GW4, with owners of Timo Werner, Antony Martial and Kai Havertz having to decide whether to stick or twist.

Chelsea vs. Crystal Palace: Reece James (5.1)
Chelsea will look to break down a resolute Crystal Palace side in the first Premier League game of the weekend.

There is unlikely to be lots of space for the struggling Timo Werner and Kai Havertz to cause problems at Selhurst Park, meaning the points may come from other positions.

Reece James somehow managed to grab himself a bonus point in the 3-3 draw with West Brom last weekend and will always be a threat from right full-back.

Other options
Mason Mount (6.9)
Tammy Abraham (7.3)

Everton vs. Brighton: James Rodriguez (7.7)
Two sides who have impressed so far this season meet at Goodison Park on Saturday as Everton host Brighton & Hove Albion.

Brighton battered Manchester United last weekend, however ended up losing to a late penalty, whilst Everton maintained their 100% record with a win at Crystal Palace.

The in-form Dominic Calvert-Lewin now appears in over a third of all teams and will look to improve on his five goals in three league matches.

However the best option for this one could be James Rodriguez who has made an excellent start to his Everton career and produced a 12 point return in their last home fixture.

Other options
Dominic Calvert Lewin (7.4)
Lucas Digne (6.1)

Leeds United vs. Manchester City: Raheem Sterling (11.5)
Manchester City will look to bounce back from their embarrassing home defeat to Leicester City last weekend when they travel to face Leeds United.

Despite the result, Manchester City assets remain a must have here and injuries to Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus mean Raheem Sterling is a very appealing pick.

Sterling got off the mark for the season in their midweek win over Burnley in the EFL Cup and you’d fancy him to find the net at Elland Road.

Other options
Kevin de Bruyne (11.6)
Riyad Mahrez (8.4)

Newcastle United vs. Burnley: Callum Wilson (6.4)
Burnley will look to get off the mark when they travel to face Newcastle United in the Saturday evening fixture.

Callum Wilson has two goals to his name this season, including a last minute equaliser against Tottenham last weekend.

Burnley have made an awful start to the season and Wilson will fancy his chances of building on his decent returns so far for Newcastle.

Other options
Javier Manquillo (4.5)
Miguel Almirón (5.9)

Leicester City vs. West Ham United: Harvey Barnes (7.0)
The early league leaders Leicester City will fancy their chances of a fourth win in four when they host West Ham United.

Harvey Barnes has had an under-rated start to the campaign and was unlucky not to score more than the two points he did in the win at Manchester City.

His 13 points in the win over Burnley was an excellent return and he might get close to that at home to an indifferent West Ham side.

Jamie Vardy is another good option, however he blanked in the home win over Burnley and may struggle against sides that defend deep.

Other options
Timothy Castagne (5.7)
Youri Tielemans (6.4)

Southampton vs. West Brom: Danny Ings (8.4)
West Brom have conceded 11 goals in their first three league matches this season and Saints options are incredibly appealing here.

Danny Ings has built on his incredible 2019-20 campaign, scoring three times in three games already this season.

It’s hard to see how Ings doesn’t haul here against the worst defence in the league.

Other options
Matheus Pereira (6.0)
Kyle Walker-Peters (4.5)

Arsenal vs. Sheffield United: Pierre Emerick Aubameyang (11.9)
Sheffield United have really struggled this season, failing to score or claim a point from their first three league matches.

Arsenal were beaten for the first time in the previous gameweek, losing 3-1 at Anfield; however you’d fancy them to bounce back here.

Pierre Emerick Aubameyang has made a surprisingly slow FPL start to the campaign, with just one goal and one assist in his first three matches.

Against Sheffield United you would expect him to build on that and those who sold him for Manchester City assets in the previous week may live to regret the call.

Other options
Alexandre Lacazette (8.5)
Willian (8.0)

Wolves vs. Fulham: Raul Jiminez (8.6)
In arguably the gimme of the weekend, Wolves entertain a Fulham side who are yet to get off the mark.

Wolves were thrashed at West Ham last time out; however surely they will bounce back against a woeful Fulham side here.

Raul Jiminez has two goals (and an oggy) in his first three league matches and you wouldn’t back against him improving on that on Sunday.

Should Daniel Podence recover from injury then he will be another good option.

Other options
Daniel Podence (5.6)
Willy Boly (5.5)

Manchester United vs. Tottenham: Bruno Fernandes (10.5)
Two sides on the end of contrasting late penalty decisions last weekend met this time around as Manchester United host Tottenham.

In a tough fixture to predict, it may be best to dodge assets in this fixture if wildcarding or go into the weekend with players from neither side.

Bruno Fernandes loves a haul and is probably the best option, whilst Marcus Rashford has a good record against Tottenham.

Other options
Marcus Rashford (9.5)
Harry Kane (10.5)

Aston Villa vs. Liverpool: Mohamed Salah (12.1)
Mohamed Salah has just one assist in his last two gameweeks and a trip to Villa Park isn’t as easy of fixture as it was last term.

Despite this, Salah rarely goes three without a goal and will be up against Matt Targett who is suspect defensively.

Villa have been impressive this campaign and it wouldn’t be a massive shock were they to get something from this game.

Other options
Andrew Robertson (7.0)
Jack Grealish (7.0)

GW4 Dream Team:
(3-4-3): Leno; Robertson, Boly, James; Sterling (C), Aubameyang (VC), Tielemans, Rodriguez; Jiminez, Ings, Wilson

GW3 Dream Team:
(3-4-3): Meslier (10); Walker (0), Doherty (2), Vinagre (0); Havertz (5), Foden (2), Sterling (4)(C) Salah (5); Werner (2)(VC), Jiminez (0), Mitrovic (2)
Total points: 32
GW1 Average: 43
