Selection

Increasingly reliable Mahrez can exploit weakness on Leeds’ left in FPL Gameweek 4

Last week we highlighted a weakness down Chelsea’s left flank, which as expected, was exposed by one of our differential picks Matheus Pereira (£6.0m). 

The Brazilian playmaker ended the Gameweek with an assist, while one of our other selections Chris Wood (£6.5m) found the back of the net, only for assistant referee Scott Ledger to have already flagged for offside.

This time, we’ve selected three differentials from Manchester City, Brighton and Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspur who we think have the potential to make a big impact.

As always, to qualify, the player must have an ownership of 5% or less at the time of writing.

Riyad Mahrez

  • FPL ownership: 4.0%
  • Price: £8.4m
  • GW4-8 fixtures: lee | ARS | whu | shu | LIV

After his pre-season preparations were affected by a positive COVID-19 test, Riyad Mahrez (£8.4m) has now completed 90 minutes in three successive matches.

The Manchester City winger made his first appearance of the season in last Thursday’s 2-1 Carabao Cup win over Bournemouth, and followed it up with a 12-point haul against Leicester City in Gameweek 3. He only needed four minutes to open the scoring and also supplied an assist for Nathan Aké’s (£5.5m) second-half goal.  

Interestingly, against Burnley in midweek, Mahrez took up positions on both flanks, and grew into the game showing quality to lay the ball on for Ferran Torres’ (£6.9m) goal.

When selected last season, Mahrez delivered. He ended the campaign with 11 goals and 14 fantasy assists, which highlights his points potential as both a goalscorer and creator.

Up next for Man City is a trip to Leeds United, in what is sure to be an intriguing tactical battle between Pep Guardiola and Marcelo Bielsa. Both coaches’ positive approaches tend to be non-negotiable, which suggests we could see an entertaining, open spectacle. That should leave plenty of space for both teams to exploit, and in particular Mahrez, who is excellent in transition.

It’s also worth noting Leeds have conceded 15 chances from their left flank this season, the highest total in the division from that side of the pitch, which was highlighted by Neale in this week’s Big Numbers article. That vulnerability in their system further heightens Mahrez’s appeal, who could be an explosive differential in Gameweek 4.

Leandro Trossard

  • FPL ownership: 1.7%
  • Price: £6.0m
  • GW4-8 fixtures: eve | cry | WBA | tot | BUR

Leandro Trossard (£6.0m) has started the season strongly, providing returns in each of the first two Gameweeks.

He should have had more too, having been denied by the woodwork on three separate occasions against Manchester United last weekend.

The statistics also suggest there is more to come. Amongst midfielders, only James Rodríguez (£7.7m) and Mohamed Salah (£12.1m) rank higher for expected assists (xA), while his eight shots and seven created chances highlight his growing importance to Albion’s attack.

Tactically, he is starting to take a more central role, linking with Neal Maupay (£6.5m) up front, which is a key reason behind those improving numbers.

Despite picking up just three points, the Seagulls have played some superb football so far this season and can consider themselves unlucky not to have come away with anything against Chelsea and Manchester United. However, those performances will give them confidence ahead of a testing trip to Goodison Park in Gameweek 4, with enticing games against Crystal Palace, West Bromwich Albion and Burnley to follow.

Last season, Trossard struggled with consistency both in terms of form and selection, but now he’s settled in at Brighton, is a key man there and you would expect him to improve. The early signs are certainly positive, with Albion boss Graham Potter, somewhat surprisingly, making minimal changes to his line-up so far in 2020/21. That’s great news for Trossard, who was hard to predict starts for last season.

All things considered, that makes the Belgian one of the most appealing options in the budget midfielder category, and an exciting differential for those willing to roll the dice. 

Sergio Reguilón

  • FPL ownership: 0.4%
  • Price: £5.5m
  • GW4-8 fixtures: mun | WHU | bur | BHA | wba

Tottenham Hotspur’s new signing Sergio Reguilón (£5.5m) is a player very much on the rise.

In the 2019/20 campaign, he caught the eye in La Liga and the Europa League, which he went on to win with Sevilla. Starting 29 league games, he established himself as the primary left-back ahead of Sergio Escudero, and performed well in metrics like expected assists (xA) and crosses. 

Spurs’ midweek penalty win against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup saw Reguilón make his debut, and despite an error which led to the Blues opener, he looked lively, helping himself to an assist to set up Erik Lamela (£5.9m).

Going forward, you’d expect Jose Mourinho to settle on a 4-3-3 formation, but seeing as both Reguilón and Matt Doherty (£5.9m) are also comfortable playing as wing-backs, it opens up the possibility of moving to a 3-4-3, which would further heighten his appeal.

While some will suggest his selection in this column comes a week too early, Man Utd’s weakness down their right-flank comes into our thinking. Against Brighton, time and again Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.4m) was left exposed due to a lack of protection offered by teammate Mason Greenwood (7.4m). It resulted in the Red Devils giving up five chances and numerous shots from that zone, which is surely something Moutinho and his staff will look to exploit on Sunday.

Following Ben Davies’ (£5.0m) runout against Maccabi Haifa in the Europa League last night, we expect Reguilón to start at Old Trafford, where he will look to take advantage of those United weaknesses.

      B. Gives you the flexibility as well to move things around at that price point.

    Salah to Sterling (C) a waste of a transfer?

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Salah - KDB - JRod - Podence
      Werner- Jimenez- DCL

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Possibly but I think he is the best captain option this GW

    2. eamonhegg
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Stinger alert

    3. Pumpy Pro
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Impossible to say until after the event. I wouldn't for a hit and i would be concerned with city having no striker but it could be a great move if Sterling is having a good day. You need Sterling for Sheff UTD and west ham though

      1. Pumpy Pro
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        *salah for sheff utd and west ham sorry

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Agree.

          1. Stormbringer22
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Definitely. Annoyingly, Raz has those 2 fixtures at the same time almost

    4. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      If you have 2FTs, no

    5. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Thanks all. I think I am too chicken to do it and would rather bank the FT so I have 2 over the IB

    6. fpork
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      I have Sterling, but I still think it is a too big chance to take. Especially since you already have KDB. Just cap him and save the transfer.

    7. nico05
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Id keep Salah

  3. NaranjaMecanica

    Kane > Jimi on FT?

    1. No Professionals

      No

    2. Stormbringer22

      No

  4. Drogba Legend

    What to do here? .9 ITB, 1FT

    McCarthy
    TAA - Justin - Bavies - Holding
    Salah - KDB - Podence* - Son*
    Werner - Ings

    Nyland - Bissouma - Mitchell - Davis

    1. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Son down to Barnes/Tross and Bavies up to Robbo for a hit

      1. Drogba Legend
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Cheers Beck

    2. Thescaff
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Son & Werner to Bruno & Jimi

    3. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Good side. Davies likely to lose his spot / get rotated at best, with Reguilón so would move him out for Liverpool defender if you downgrade Son to Mahrez/Barnes and have enough cash.

      I think it would be worth a hit as Davies may not start needs to go in any case. Rest looks good.

  5. eamonhegg
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Any news on Podence?

    and son > A) Maherz or B) Barnes

    1. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      a

    2. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Barnes

    3. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Would prefer A.

      Not clued up enough on Podence situation.

    4. BENOIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      I'd hold personally. Best fixture of the 3

    5. nico05
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      A.
      No news

  6. skodaole2
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    After reading all the Podence comments here expected his ownership to be like 25-30 percent and its less than 6

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years

      Same as his likely points output

      1. BENOIT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Sassy

  7. Jimjam
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years

    McCarthy (Steer)
    TAA, Saiss, Davies, Justin (Mitchell)
    Salah, KDB, Son, Podence (Bissouma)
    Werner, Ings (Davis)

    1FT, 0.5 in bank.

    Doubts over Son/Davies/Podence, and Werner playing out wide. Would you WC this team?

    1. nico05
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Id hold this week maybe werner to jimi. Deffo best waiting until international break to WC if you're considering it but your team looks good imo

    2. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Would not WC this team - not worth it at this moment in time.

      A hit here and there and you'll likely have what you want

  8. primal33
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Dier to Saiss (FT) a no-brainer?

    1. TorresMagic™ - 48n69x
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Conceding 7 in last 2 isn’t great

      1. primal33
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        That's my concern. I'm also wary that IB is coming up and having 2FT might be worthwhile.

        1. The Count of Monte Cristo
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          If no issues with rest of team I would just save this tbh. Especially with how Wolves were last time out.

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 23 days ago

      No, spurs def isn’t that bad

    3. ...al
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Mmm it's a brainer, but could be ok

  9. YoungPretender
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Son & Davies/Egan > Barnes & Robbo (-4)?

  10. davies
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    I’ll be fuming if Brewster isn’t transferred before deadline

    1. TorresMagic™ - 48n69x
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      GW5 was always the better GW to WC

      1. davies
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        That was my plan but would’ve been a similar team to this week and would’ve been outpriced for waiting with price changes

    2. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Absolute joke, he should already be transferred

      1. davies

        You on wildcard?

    3. TheSteel

      Have you not told Liverpool and Sheffield about your FPL team?

    Could get anyone's thoughts please before I do my transfer this week? I have 1 ft and 1.5 to spend.

    What would you do with this?

    Had been planning Werner to Richarlison. Should I get Jim instead?
    Maybe Dier to Coady?

      Werner to Jimi is a great move

    2. Fysegnuggen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Werner --> Jimenez looks really good, + a double up on Everton seems like an overkill as Brighton have looked good

    3. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Agree that Werner -> Jimenez is good

  13. subhojit123

    Best 5.1m max set and forget defender...
    1. James
    2. Saiss
    3. Lamptey

    1. The Littlest Robbo
      • 5 Years

    2. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Lamptey but he may be sold to Bayern

    3. Fysegnuggen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Lamptey, Ayling, Dallas, Kyle WP, Saiss, Konsa, Holding, Lewis + Mitchell and James short run. LOADS of good options in this bracket!

    4. rjcv177

    Werner, DCL, Davis

    1. The Count of Monte Cristo

      Borderline perhaps but would keep WC in hand for now and reassess after IB.

      1. Nespinha

        wha's the big problem to think it's borderline?

    2. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Why WC?

      Midfield looks good and Werner is ok for one mor game.

      Defence looks ok.

      1. Nespinha
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        just doubtful, had to take a hit for doherty + mitro to kwp and DCL

        couldn't bare 7 spurs goals and not even one assist

  16. Stupendous

    Son to Mahrez, Barnes or a flutter on Torres?

    Thanks

    1. rjcv177

      Mahrez

    2. The Count of Monte Cristo

      Mahrez as you already own Vardy IMO

    Brewster vs Fulham looks juicy...

    1. The Count of Monte Cristo

      Sheff Utd need to score a goal for Brewster to score

  18. CFC1990

    I have a FT and 3.5m in the bank which I want to use to improve my strikers.

    Wood, Werner, Adams

    What would you advise?

    I'm even considering Werner and Adams to Ings and Jiminez for a hit. Is that wise?

    1. Blunder fc
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Keep werner over the international break, pulisic and ziyech getting fit could be a big boost. Then wood to ings or jimenez

  19. rjcv177

    Problem to solve with Son

    A) go Harvey Barnes for free (no vardy)

    1. Blunder fc
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      A) or go to mahrez

      Either of those options is viable.

      If you have other issues in your team, then do B. You may want Son as next four after United are decent enough.

      You can then swap out Werner for Jiminez or Ings for a free this week.

        Werner and Son to Kane and Barnes?

          I would maybe save in that case.

    Werner --> DCL / Jimenez (FT) or just save? I don't like my other two strikers which is tempting me to get a in-form one in.

    McCarthy
    TAA -- Justin -- C.Taylor
    Salah (c) -- KDB -- B.Fernandes -- Souček
    Mitrovic -- Werner -- C.Wilson

    4.0 -- B.Davies -- Mitchell -- Bissouma [1FT + 0.3m ITB]

    1. CFC1990
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      You could take a -4 and get both DCL and Jiminez in for Werner and Mitro/Wilson depending on funds.

      1. The Count of Monte Cristo
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        I can do for exact cash:

        Werner + C.Wilson --> DCL + Jimenez (-4).

        I like the moves but just thinking would 2FT post I-B be worth enough to keep the FT...

      As this season is going yours might be the ones to score lol
      Wilson to deeney's twin also an option

      1. The Count of Monte Cristo
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Who on earth is Deeney's twin?

        1. Nespinha
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Watkins is my guess lol

          No wait, its che adams

  21. Roysgotnoboys
    • 5 Years

    Would you play Justin, Wilson or Podence? Thx

    1. Roysgotnoboys
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Sorry *bench Justin, Wilson or Podence

  22. Gudjohnsen

    Any news on Podence?

    Everybody saying that Pulisic and Ziyech will boost Werner, there's no doubt in that but it also means that there are more players to spread the points around, am i wrong?

    1. TheSteel

      You could be wrong, you could be right.

    Is there any truth to the idea Saiss will be dropped for Dendoncker following his performance against WHU? Thought I heard something on Wire but not sure whether to believe it

    1. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      It might just be their opinions. There is no way of knowing ahead of the match, Nuno would never disclose that ahead of the match even if he was going to do it.

  25. NULL-X-VOID

    Given the possibilities of match postponing that's been seen in other major leagues, do you think holding the WC could turn out be a huge advantage?

    1. Monklane
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      yep

    2. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      It could be insofar as it is playable at those times.

      Would be an issue for majority of players so would not think too much about that scenario just yet.

      Unless it’s a game where you have more than 4 players such as Man City - Liverpool, a playing bench should be enough to cover for such developments. I think it’s an ineffective use of WC if you just save it for low probability events such as those.

      As long as a club has 14 players including youth players, matches aren’t supposed to get postponed.

    Who scores more next two

    A: Sterling (lee, ARS) + Maupay (eve, cpl) (-4) or
    B: Barnes (WHM, AVL) + Werner (CPL, SOU)

    RMT suggests A but its a tough one. Already have KDB and Foden if that makes a difference, in theory it shouldnt make a difference

    Hmm, Davies to Robbo (bench Justin) or save FT, that is the question

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Save

    2. n-doggg
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Save

    3. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Save and play Justin.

      Cheers for talking me out of it!

  28. n-doggg

    Podence still a doubt right? Not worth doing Mendy to Podence for -4?

    1. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      No, would hold.

  29. Tony Martial

    What to do with Podence?

    1. n-doggg
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      If you have I’d definitely keep. He’ll probably get some minutes and against Fulham that could be a goal or assist even if he’s on for 10mins

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      What bench options you got?

    3. TLF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I'm defo keeping

    4. Dthinger

      If I didn't have Son to deal with, I would be looking at McGinn. I feel like the Barkley signing could push McGinn into the forward line.

  30. wulfranian

    Any thoughts what to do here?Son+Richarlison out are the moves i am thinking but i can't get Sterling/Salah.Also i don't want anymore Moura.It's worth a -8?

    McCarthy
    Soyuncu/Coleman/James
    Son*/Moura/Barnes/Kdb
    Richarlison/Werner/Kane

    Steer McCarthy/Targett/Douglas
    1ft 0.3itb

    1. n-doggg
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Son sounds like it was a made up injury so I’d hold for now and focus on Moura

      1. wulfranian

        cheers

      2. Dthinger

        Made up? Why would he be out for the United match then?

        1. Bennerman
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          This 'made up' Son injury has gathered strength because the amplifying effects of echo chambers such as this one and other social media platforms.

          The theory goes that Mourinho at half-time against Newcastle, so convinced was he that Spurs would win.

          Then, when they didn't win, purely to save face, Jose claimed he was injured and then not only left him out of the squad for the midweek League Cup game (which he plausibly would have done anyway, much more likely I think, in fact, than being hooked at half-time in the league in order to be preserved for), but also completely left him out of the vital Europa League that followed (Jose has already explained how important a target to the club qualifying for the Europa group stages was, financially).

          All to save face, and in fact Son is completely fine and has quite willingly accepted being the fall guy.

          Highly fanciful in my opinion. Nut attractive to the conspiracy theory leanings around these parts.

          Either way, seems a chance Son could be involved on Sunday, Jose is hinting at it.
