Win £10,000 for free with Fantasy5 by picking the best players for Gameweek 4


Sponsored by Fantasy5


Gameweek 4 promises to be bedlam with yellow flags aplenty, quarantining players, late returnees and possible FIFA bans – but you could still be £10,000 richer come Sunday night!

Best of all, it won’t cost you a penny to be in with a chance of landing the huge cash windfall.

We’re talking about the free-to-play weekly Fantasy5 game, where there are various other prizes on offer beyond the whopping jackpot.

You can even set up a mini-league and compete with colleagues, friends and family.

It’s as simple as this: pick five players from the nominated Gameweek 4 matches below and, if they all exceed their ‘points targets’ (a par score set by Fantasy5 for each asset), you’ll be in the money.

Guess who is top among all Manchester City assets for shots in the box this season? Not Ferran Torres, not Gabriel Jesus, not Jack Grealish… but one Aymeric Laporte. As with most defenders in Fantasy5, he’ll need an attacking return to surpass his points target. But with seven attempts on goal in just two appearances, he’s got as good a chance as any stopper of achieving that. Leicester’s vulnerability at dead-ball situations, plus some ongoing uncertainty about centre-half availability for the Foxes, further solidifies our pick.

FPL managers may be umm-ing and ahh-ing about whether to deconstruct their teams to fit Cristiano Ronaldo in but there’s no such long-term worry with picking the veteran Portuguese as a one-week punt in Fantasy5. Two goals (barring any bookings) will see him over his points target; given that Newcastle United have conceded more big chances than any other team bar Arsenal, he’ll surely have plenty of opportunities at Old Trafford – starting or otherwise.

Two attacking returns (even a brace of assists) will see FPL’s top points-scorer, Michail Antonio, over his target this weekend. He’s done that on three occasions already and given West Ham’s recent record against Southampton (they are unbeaten in seven), plus Saints’ defensive woes (two clean sheets in 25 games), there’s every reason to back him again.

Aston Villa will be without Emiliano Martinez this weekend, so two goals for Romelu Lukaku – providing he can shrug off a minor thigh issue – should, in theory, be a mite easier to achieve for the Belgian. Eight shots for Lukaku against Arsenal in Gameweek 2 was an ominous sign of things to come.

With Roberto Firmino’s availability uncertain on Sunday, Diogo Jota could be thrust straight back into the Liverpool starting XI. With two goals in as many starts this season, and with underlying ‘per 90’ stats almost as good as or even better than Mohamed Salah’s, the Portugal international may find joy against a Leeds backline that has allowed the joint-highest number of chances to be created from central positions than any other team.

HOW DOES FANTASY5 WORK?

Image

Fantasy5 is easy to play as it follows the exact same scoring system as FPL, just without the bonus points.

It’s also the fastest media outlet for live Fantasy points, displaying all player points from the five games in question, as well as the live score and time.

For the more detailed lowdown, head here.

The competition is limited to one entry per person per round and selections must be submitted before kick-off of the first eligible match.

If two or more entrants correctly select five players who all score more than their points target, then the prize pot is split among all winners.

    Which 7.5m or less midfielder to go with? Already have Raphinha.

    1. Boly Would
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Mount, Traore, Torres?

    2. JAC THE CAT
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Could you get Jota?

    3. Nomar
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      If I had 7.5 it'd be Mount.

    4. golfboy

      Torres. Playing as a striker. Should start!

  2. Mahjongking
    • 4 Years

    Sanchez
    Taa shaw white
    Salah bruno son esr townsend
    Antonio ings

    Subs foster veltman livra oba

    2ft, what changes to make?

    1. Mahjongking
      • 4 Years

      Any help please?

      ANy money in the bank?

      Ings has some difficult games coming up (and isn't on pens if El Ghazi plays), but he does seem to score against a lot of teams, just will he get the service?

      That is one I might do - Maybe to DCL?

  3. Old Gregg

    Which move please?. This to accommodate Ron

    A) Traore
    B) Sarr
    Or
    C) D. Gray

    1. JAC THE CAT
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      A

    2. Davidwes
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      All are good options. If you need the extra 0,4 go for gray

    3. Gunneryank
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Sarr punt seems reasonable. I'm probably going to give Fornals a chance this GW myself. Both have respectable underlying stats.

        1. Old Gregg
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Thanks all.
          Fornals clearly in form. Scored for Spain too. I have Ben so probably won’t go there

      • Dr. Rog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        models say Sarr
        humans say Traore
        nobody says Gray

        1. Old Gregg
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Well put. Thanks.

          I am down to Sarr an Tra

      Love being on a wildcard!

      Welcome Ronaldo 🙂

        Hate to tell you, but some of us with 2 FT can get him for free this week too and keep our WC intact.

        1. TheTinman
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Thoughts on this team after a -4?

        Sanchez
        TAA, Shaw, Veltman
        Salah, Bruno, Benrahma, Gray, Smith-Rowe
        Ronaldo, Antonio

      3. Iceball
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Keep changing my mind around Greenwood, Torres, Mount, Sarr, Jota (-4)
        Atm now its Greenwood nr. 1. What are your thoughts as its getting closer?
        Was on Torres most of the break, but he played 3 times for Spain and Foden KDB getting closer. Jesus out might help him though.

        1. Gunneryank
            1 month, 11 days ago

            I'm all in on Jota and Greenwood. They're both practically nailed for now. And given their form and fixtures and oop...almost essential imo. In fact, I'd consider Jota 100% essential while Firmino recovers.

          • 5 Years

          Need some advice on my team, 1 FT available, 0.5 ITB:
          Sanchez
          TAA - Shaw - Ayling - Livramento
          Salah - Son* - Gundogan - Benrahma
          Kane - Ings
          Steele - Tsimikas - Brownhill - Scarlett

          A) Wildcard
          B) Ings --> DCL
          C) Son, Ings --> Ronaldo, Traore (-4)

              Jimi wont play this week. If your bench can take care of that then, Yes

              Sure. Good fixtures.

              But would still prefer Antonio, DCL and even Bamford over him myself.

              It’s ok but Wolves don’t score much. Prefer Bamford myself post this gameweek

            Amazing that Im not seeing DDG in more wildcard teams.
            5mln is a steal for a top 4 defence which should be massively improved with the addition of Varane.

            1. The Rock
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 12 Years
              1 month, 11 days ago

              True. I guess a lot of managers stick to their cheaper keeper/s choice though as the save points they get almost make up for lack of clean sheets.

            2. ANGRY PERSON
                1 month, 11 days ago

                Who is DDG ?

                    Nvm. Got it

                  Henderson was going to be 1st choice coming into the season before he caught covid.

                  Who knows what will happen once he is back and fit.

                  This is one reason I am avoiding.

                    This isn't a fact, this is just what you think.

                  Yes this has surprised me also.

                  1 month, 11 days ago

                  But DDG is always a due a series of clangers and when it happens he will be dropped. That is the fear

                Unsure on DCL's availability, how does a 1 week punt on Richarlison look, bringing DCL back in after this week?

                    go Bamford in that case

                    1. Hryszko
                      • 4 Years
                      1 month, 11 days ago

                      Against Liverpool? I'm a Leeds fan but I don't think we'll get an awful lot from that match.

                      1. Dr. Rog

                        • 12 Years
                        1 month, 11 days ago

                        its not for 1 game though is it.

                        1. Hryszko
                          • 4 Years
                          1 month, 11 days ago

                          Yeah but from what I've read, IF DCL is out, the likelihood is it's for one/two games at most.. meaning Richarlison is a bit of a punt until then, can always move to Bamford if he's out for longer.

                      2. Gunneryank
                          1 month, 11 days ago

                          Right but Leeds fixtures are pretty decent for a while after that.

                          1. Hryszko
                            • 4 Years
                            1 month, 11 days ago

                            They are, which is also in my plan.. Torres or Traore > Raph after this week or the following.

                            1. Dr. Rog

                              this is a lot of transfers you are pre-planning, whilst on a wildcard

                              and this is before the unexpected starts happening.

                    Thoughts on this WC Team?

                    Sanchez (Steele)
                    TAA Shaw Coady (Livra Williams)
                    Salah Jota Torres Traore (Sissoko)
                    Cr7 Dcl Antonio

                    Plan would be Shaw and CR7 to Chelsea GW7/8

                    Other option would be to downgrade Torres to 6.5 so could upgrade Coady but Raph was my favourite and misses this weekend.

                      Not a fan of booking more than one transfers. Things happen, injures happen. Get a Chelsea defender now!

                        Would have to be in place of Shaw which im not keen on

                    Okay I know i said my WC is locked but.. best 4.5m striker?

                      Greenwood at Leeds or Geldhart, both been getting into the first team but highly highly unlikely any of the 4.5m's play. Davis at Villa arguably the best option of the bunch.

                        Davis red flagged but thanks, will go for Greenwood!

                          Don't waste a Leeds spot on a fodder.

                      Crazy question worthy of your thoughts..?
                      If clubs field these players that FIFA propose are inelligible to play this weekend and it unfolds that the match is forfeited, what happens to our players selected in those matches?
                      Could we see a Salah captain haul in the real match v Leeds turned to a zero, if the match ends up being forfeited?
                      Is it even worth captaining a player not at risk of playing in a match with 'inelligible players' to avoid any issues...?

                        If match is not played then it will be 0 I guess

                        If the match is played that will be the FPL result. For example, if a red card is rescinded the FPL player still has the minus points from a red card, it is not reduced to a yellow.

                        Need more of a description on what you’re trying to say. Has the game been stopped ala Brasil v Argentina or has the game been made redundant a few hours after it’s finished?
                        If the former happens the players get 0. The latter, scores in the ‘game’ are not adjusted. After 1 of the games last action, scores may not be adjusted.

                      So not sounding very positive for ESR then. Thinking playing him is a risk as he may get reduced minutes (if at all) so am considering benching for one of Ings or Duffy.

                      Whether to play Ings or Duffy is a tight call - currently leaning towards Duffy. Thoughts?

                      1. Gunneryank
                          1 month, 11 days ago

                          I've heard many on here resolve a benching choice between an attacker and a defender in favor of the attacker. But...Ings is at Stamford Bridge. Worst case scenario.

                          Thoughts, never bench the attacker!

                          I'd pick Duffy no doubt

                            Yep, that's what I'm on currently.

                          Honestly don't think it matters about Traore in this scenario

                        If Raphina is missing, means I have to start Gilmour.

                        Not sure on a plan!

                        A) Ings -> Ronaldo for FT, and start Raphina/Gilmour if he is out (starting Ronaldo & Raph/Gilmour)
                        B) Gilmour -> Torres/Traore (Starting Ings & Torres/Traore)
                        C)Martinez -> Sa (Starting Sa instead of Villas back up Steer)

                        Or any of the 2 for a -4?

                        I'm just leaning towards A at the moment, especially if Raphina is cleared to start.

                          Hope he starts as it means alisson and fabinho for us too... I would add sarr to these options in B
