Gameweek 4 Tips

FPL GW4 is approaching fast, with just a week to go until Crystal Palace v Spurs kicks off.

New Man United boys Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.5) and Raphael Varane (£5.5) are enticing options heading into a home fixture against Newcastle.

Michail Antonio (£7.9) is quickly becoming a must-have in FPL, having scored 40 points already this season, averaging 5.1 points per million, which is the highest of any player in FPL.

Budget Brentford defender, Pontus Jansson (£4.6), and goalkeeper, David Raya (£4.5), offer good value.

Prices

The 2021/22 season is well underway, so keep an eye on the FPL prices as they fluctuate throughout the season.

Mohamed Salah remains the most expensive player available, at £12.5.

In-form striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin will set you back £8.1 after his price increase.

Ronaldo Price Revealed!

The official Fantasy Premier League Twitter account has revealed Cristiano Ronaldo's price.

CR7 comes in at £12.5m, which is equal to the highest price players at the start of the 2021/22 season, along with Mohamed Salah (£12.5) and Harry Kane (£12.3).
