Fantasy Premier League: GW4 Dream Team

The Premier League returns on Saturday after a fortnight break due to the international break.

The signing of Cristiano Ronaldo has seen the wildcard button pressed by many FPL managers, with his second debut a home fixture with Newcastle United.

Elsewhere Chelsea and Everton have favourable fixtures and there will be a few combinations from these sides in new look sides.

Crystal Palace vs. Tottenham: Harry Kane
Tottenham travel to face Palace in the first game of GW4 and the doubt surrounding Heung Min Son makes Harry Kane more appealing.

Kane has barely featured so far this season, however he has committed himself to Spurs, at least until the end of the season.

Spurs will be without a few players here given quarantine rules, whilst Palace looked good in the 2-2 draw with West Ham last time out.

This is a tough to predict game and I wouldn’t be buying players in this one, although I wouldn’t be selling unless we get news on Son’s chances of playing.

Arsenal vs. Norwich City: Pierre Emerick Aubameyang
The Premier League bottom two go head to head at the Emirates with both Arsenal and Norwich City looking to earn a first point of the season.

Emile Smith Rowe is one of few to look good this season for Arsenal; however he is a doubt due to an illness that meant he missed England’s Under 21 fixture.

Pierre Emerick Aubameyang looks the best bet in this game; however this is another game I wouldn’t be buying players for.

Brentford vs. Brighton: Kristoffer Ajer
Brentford’s home game with Brighton looks the best 0-0 bet of the weekend with just 11 goals scored in the six games involving the pair this season.

Kristoffer Ajer got an assist in the draw with Aston Villa last week and is a decent cheap defensive bet, whilst Shane Duffy at 4.2 is a very cheap option for the visitors.

David Raya and Richard Sanchez are both 4.5 and the two goalkeepers have returned well so far this season.

Leicester City vs. Manchester City: Ferran Torres
The champions Manchester City face a difficult trip to Leicester on Saturday; however they will be confident of a third win in a row.

Ferran Torres returned 18 points in the win over Arsenal last time out and is one of the cheapest ways into Pep Guardiola’s side.

They will likely be without Ederson this week, meaning Scott Carson may start, which decreases the appeal of Manchester City defensive assets.

For those fancying the hosts here, Jamie Vardy has an excellent record against Man City, with nine goals in 17 matches.

Manchester United vs. Newcastle United: Cristiano Ronaldo
Should Ronaldo return straight into the XI, then it’s hard to look past the Portuguese captain as the best bet for Manchester United this week.

At 12.5m he is hard to get to and most will need to take a hit or use the wildcard to get him; however he is likely worth the risk.

Ronaldo’s arrival decreases the appeal of Bruno Fernandes with it unlikely he remains on penalties despite his excellent record.

Mason Greenwood is another excellent option, for at least one more week, as the youngster wasn’t called up by England during the recent break.

Southampton vs. West Ham: Michail Antonio
West Ham dropped points for the first time last week as they were held at home by Crystal Palace.

Despite the result, the leading FPL scorer of the season Michail Antonio produced another double digit return and is now in over half the FPL sides.

Antonio went away with the Jamaican national team during the break, but he is eligible here having missed the third World Cup qualifier and remains the best bet.

Watford vs. Wolves: Ismaila Sarr
Both Watford and Wolves can consider themselves unlucky not to have got results against Tottenham and Manchester United last time out.

Ismaila Sarr is one of the best players in the league outside of the top seven sides and at 6.0m he represents excellent value.

Wolves have looked decent defensively this term despite three defeats and the likes of Conor Coady and Nelson Semedo are good options at less than 5.0m.

Chelsea vs. Aston Villa: Kai Havertz
Chelsea have made a very strong start to the season and performed brilliantly to earn a draw away at Liverpool at Anfield given Reece James early red card.

James will miss the visit of Aston Villa; however fellow full-back Marcos Alonso is an excellent option having appeared to have ousted Ben Chilwell from the side.

Kai Havertz and Romelu Lukaku both performed well during the recent international break and are two excellent options this week.

Leeds United vs. Liverpool: Diogo Jota
The probable FIFA ban for South American’s who didn’t go away with their national team effects Leeds and Liverpool more than most.

Leeds could be without Raphinha, whilst Liverpool would travel to Elland Road without Alisson, Fabinho and Roberto Firmino.

Firmuno is an injury doubt regardless which increases the appeal of Diogo Jota whom represents ridiculous value at 7.7m.

Mohamed Salah, Trent Alexander Arnold and Sadio Mane are all good bets for trip to Leeds, who have struggled slightly this term.

Everton vs. Burnley: Lucas Digne
The final game of GW4 see’s Everton host a winless Burnley side.

A home win looks a solid bet here; however Burnley did earn a surprise win at Goodison Park last term.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin appears to be fit, whilst Richarlison is the one Brazilian who won’t be banned by FIFA.

Lucas Digne is well overdue a major haul though and we fancy the left-back to get that on Monday.

GW4 Dream Team: Sanchez; Shaw, Alonso, Ajer, Digne; Jota, Salah, Torres, Havertz; Lukaku, Ronaldo

GW3 Dream Team: Schmeichel (2) Shaw (6) Livramento (1) Dias (6) Grealish (6) Son (20, Captain) Benrahma (2) Raphinha (2) Ings (4) Vardy (12) Antonio (11)
