FAVOURABLE FIXTURES - Wolves' fixtures are inviting

Wolves picked up their first clean sheet of the season against Watford in Gameweek 4.

Fixtures against Brentford, Southampton and Newcastle show lots of promise for more clean sheet points in the next weeks!

Bargain Buy – Daniel Bachmann (£4.5)

POTENTIAL POINTS - Good upcoming fixtures make Watford assets attractive

Despite Bachmann (£4.5) having not yet kept a clean sheet this season, the Watford 'keeper looks a good option going forward.

Watford face Norwich and Newcastle in their next two, who have both been struggling to find the back of the net.



These defenders are both selected by under 5% of FPL managers!

Star Signing – Joel Matip (£5.0)

GUARANTEED GAME TIME - Matip will continue to rack up the points

Joel Matip (£5.0) has somewhat gone under the radar, being selected by only 3.2% of managers.

But, the Liverpool centre back is a shoo-in in the defence, having kept three clean sheets already this season, and with Crystal Palace and Brentford up next, more could be on the way!

Bargain Buy – Fernando Marcal (£4.5)

BARGAIN - Marcal is great value at £4.5

Fernando Marcal (£4.5) produced a 13-point haul in GW4, picking up two assists, a clean sheet and two bonus points.

At just £4.5, and with Wolves' upcoming fixtures, Marcal is a brilliant option for your FPL defence!



We've selected two low priced midfielders who can score big in the upcoming weeks.

Star Signing – Raphinha (£6.5)

BRAZILIAN MAGIC - Raphinha has that special Brazilian flair

Despite having only produced one attacking return so far this season, Raphinha (£6.5) is a top midfield option for Gameweeks 5 - 10.

Leeds face the likes of Newcastle, Watford, Southampton and Norwich in their next six fixtures, so you could even go for Dan James (£6.0) or Stuart Dallas (£5.4) instead.

Bargain Buy – Conor Gallagher (£5.6)

LICENSE TO ROAM - Gallagher has the freedom to get forward for Palace

Crystal Palace midfielder, Conor Gallagher (£5.6), looks to be one of the best midfielders below the £6m mark.

Gallagher picked up 15 points against West Ham in GW3 and a further 8 points against Spurs in GW4.



With both DCL and Antonio unavailable for GW5, we've got the next best striking options for you.

Star Signing – Jamie Vardy (£10.4)

POACHER - Vardy knows how to find the back of the net

Jamie Vardy (£10.4) has already scored two goals this season, with another being disallowed against Man City following a narrow offside call.

The Foxes come up against Brighton, Burnley and Crystal Palace in their next three games, which promises points for the Englishman.

Bargain Buy – Patrick Bamford (£7.9)

LEEDS LAD - Can Bamford re-find his form?

Bamford (£7.9) has not had the start to the 2021/22 season he would have hoped for, but his fortunes could be about to change!

At £7.9, Bamford looks like a good replacement for Calvert-Lewin or Antonio, but you could choose to go with Raul Jimenez (£7.4) instead.

Price Changes ahead of GW5

Fantasy Premier League's official Twitter account has revealed the latest price changes.


Cristiano Ronaldo's (£12.6) price has increased, following his two goals on his return to Old Trafford, with his ownership at around 40% now.

Mateo Kovacic's (£5.1) price has also gone up after he produced a 13 point haul against Aston Villa in GW4.

More price changes!

Paul Pogba (£7.8) and Fernando Marcal (£4.6) have both seen their prices rise following returns in GW4.


Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.3), Ross Barkley (£5.3), Takumi Minamino (£5.2) and Nathaniel Clyne (£4.4) have all seen their prices drop, with all players struggling to get minutes at the start of the 2021/22 season.
