Fantasy Premier League Primer: Actionable items for Gameweek 4


FPL Gameweek 4, Premier League, EPL

After another pretty tough weekend in Fantasy Premier League; throwing up a number of challenges and problems to deal with.

Here’s what you need to be across, as we build up to FPL Gameweek 4.

When does FPL Gameweek 4 start?

Saturday 2 September, 3:30am AEST

FPL Gameweek 4 all gets started at with newly promoted Luton Town hosting their first game out of Kenilworth Road, after some frantic infrastructure upgrades over the off season. It should be epic and electric in the historic Bedfordshire town, with the Hatters hosting an in-form West Ham.

FPL Gameweek 4 notes

Here are the key takeaways, as we turn the page to FPL Gameweek 4 and make the necessary adjustments to stay on track and in contention.

It’s Sterling signs for Chelsea

The Blues were put on notice, after a slow start to the season. With a pretty clear run of games, the signs were certainly there that Mauricio Pochettino and his group are figuring things out.

Raheem Sterling‘s brace was quality and it’s very understandable there’s widespread interest to bring him in — that’s a move we condone (£7.1m | 8%).

United defence no Shaw bet

With Luke Shaw out of Manchester United’s defensive rankings for a decent stretch of time, it’s quite possible we see them continue to get found out. While they steadied the ship after conceding two goals instantly against Forest, they play two attacking powerhouses across the next two weeks.

Villa fixture proof?

Aston Villa’s put together two straight multi-goal wins, with Matty Cash (£4.5m | 9%) coming up massive against Burnley; the form’s impressive.

But be wary of the top six opponents the side has on the radar short term and reassess Villa’s defensive options ahead of FPL Gameweek 7. It’s also worth sitting patiently with their forwards.

Tottenham looking mint

How about Ange Ball? Hype has reached fever pitch in the UK, after the Spurs dismantled Bournemouth and scored a couple of lovely goals. Leicester transfer James Maddison has been carving in the middle, while the group down back is also looking incredibly solid.

Pivot from United & Arsenal big guns?

Manchester United take on Arsenal this week, leaving a star players for both sides a smaller window for success in a tougher matchup.

Now could be a good time to look at pivoting to one of Phil Foden (£7.6m | 14%), James Maddison (£7.6m | 15.6%) or Raheem Sterling (£7.1m | 8%).

West Ham on the attack

The Hammers are flying, coming of an impressive 3-1 win over Brighton.

Michail Antonio (£6.0m | 3.5%) has hit in back-to-back fixtures and despite a tough run coming up, they will probably continue having success scoring on the counter, based off what we’ve seen.

MIDFIELDER: Raheem Sterling, Chelsea (£7.1m | 8%)

FORWARD: Taiwo Awoniyi, Nottingham Forest (£6.5m | 2.6%)
