FPL Gameweek 4 round-up: Saturday goals, assists, bonus and injuries

Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.5m) bagged a double-digit haul on his second Manchester United debut as the Portuguese veteran’s 2.2 million owners were rewarded for their investment on Saturday.

No player has racked up more FPL points than the United number seven in Gameweek 7 so far, although Romelu Lukaku (£11.5m) went stride for stride with his fellow premium forward and matched that 13-point tally.

The Red Devils’ 4-1 thrashing of Newcastle United was one of eight Premier League matches that took place on a busy Saturday, the main talking points of which we’ll discuss in this our first Gameweek 4 round-up.

Our usual, more detailed Scout Notes will follow for all of the day’s games but in the meantime, our resurrected Scoreboard series rounds up the key goings-on.

The graphics below are taken from LiveFPL, Ragabolly’s excellent and ever-expanding website, and our own Premium Members Area.

GOALS, ASSISTS, PROJECTED BONUS

KEY FPL TALKING POINTS

  • Deprived of the services of Son Heung-min (£10.1m) and Steven Bergwijn (£6.0m) and lining up in a diamond formation, Tottenham Hotspur managed only two shots in the whole of their clash with Crystal Palace (none in the first half) and have the worst expected goals tally (0.09) in Gameweek 4 so far. The Eagles, by contrast, topped Saturday’s xG table with 3.00.
  • Odsonne Edouard (£6.5m) scored twice on his debut and Wilfried Zaha (£7.0m) seemingly consolidated his position as Palace’s first-choice penalty taker, stepping up to take the Eagles’ spot-kick with Luka Milivojevic (£5.4m) on the field. Of just as much interest from an FPL perspective was the performance of budget midfielder Conor Gallagher (£5.5m,), who delivered two attacking returns for the second Gameweek in a row. On free-kicks and corners, he was involved in nine of the 18 shots that Palace had.
  • Mason Greenwood (£7.7m), Paul Pogba (£7.7m) and Bruno Fernandes (£12.5m) are all set to be tied on 31 points in FPL if the bonus points are delivered as expected. No midfielder has more this season.
  • Shane Duffy (£4.2m) is now the joint-best ‘value’ player in the game, returning 5.2 points per million spent. He was part of a Brighton defence that kept their second shut-out in four matches in a 1-0 win over Brentford.
  • Last season’s best two backlines, Manchester City and Chelsea, are now joint-top along with Spurs for clean sheets this season (three each) despite the pair being in the bottom half of our Season Ticker over the opening four Gameweeks. Chelsea struggled from set plays against a lively Aston Villa, however, and they’ve now allowed 17 chances from dead-ball situations to be conceded over the last two Gameweeks.
  • Pep Guardiola named an unchanged starting XI for the third successive match, the first time he has ever done that at City. It’s safe to assume that more changes will be in the offing once the Champions League starts in midweek and indeed Thomas Tuchel’s tinkering has already begun in earnest, with the benched Mason Mount (£7.5m) and Andreas Christensen (£5.0m) two of six changes that the Chelsea manager made.
  • Dean Smith paired Danny Ings (£8.0m) and Ollie Watkins (£7.3m) in the same side for the first time, turning to a 3-5-2 to accommodate both strikers. Watkins was heavily involved and registered three times as many touches of the ball than his strike partner, who was hooked midway through the second half. Watkins also had six shots to Ings’ one.
  • Marcal‘s (£4.5m) two attacking returns in Wolves’ 2-0 win over Watford were his first ever in FPL. The left-back banked two assists despite not creating a single chance in Opta’s eyes: a Marcal cross was first turned into his own net by Francisco Sierralta (£4.4m), before the Portuguese defender’s blocked shot was converted by debutant substitute Hee-Chang Hwang (£5.5m). Marcal and fellow wing-back Nelson Semedo (£4.9m) had three of the six big chances that Wolves created.
  • Arsenal have had 52 attempts on goal in their two meetings with non-big six sides this season. Thirty of those came in Saturday’s 1-0 win over Norwich City.

INJURIES AND BANS

FPL Gameweek 4 round-up: Saturday goals, assists, bonus and injuries 7

Michail Antonio (£8.0m) and Japhet Tanganga (£4.5m) will both miss Gameweek 5 through suspension after being sent off for two bookable offences on Saturday.

On suspension tightrope watch, meanwhile, Paul Pogba (£7.7m) has reached three yellow cards after just four Gameweeks. Another two bookings before United have played a total of 19 league matches and he’ll be suspended for one game.

Brighton’s win came at a cost, with Adam Webster (£4.5m) limping off with a hamstring problem – something that may aid Shane Duffy‘s (£4.2m) chances of staying in this Albion side, however.

The Seagulls were also without Pascal Gross (£6.0m) and Enock Mwepu (£5.9m), who were both self-isolating.

“I need to see but he said [Webster] felt something there but we will see how bad that is. Enock was pinged from a flight and Pascal is just self-isolating.” – Graham Potter

Edinson Cavani (£8.4m) missed Manchester United’s win over Newcastle with a knock that isn’t expected to keep him out for long, while Rob Holding (£4.3m) was absent from Arsenal’s win over Norwich with a bruised knee.

Son Heung-min (£10.1m) and Steven Bergwijn (£6.0m) were absent from Spurs’ defeat at Crystal Palace, while Eric Dier (£4.6m) was forced off after just 11 minutes of the loss at Selhurst Park.

Nuno Espirito Santo was, as ever, a bit thin on details after the game:

“I don’t know. [Son] doesn’t look well. Stevie, let’s wait and see this week. Hopefully, they will improve and be available for the next game, let’s see.

“Let’s wait and see [on Dier].” – Nuno Espirito Santo

Among the more notable returnees on Saturday were Jonny Evans (£5.4m) and Jannik Vestergaard (£4.9m), who shared 90 minutes of game-time between them.

Kevin De Bruyne (£11.9m) and Phil Foden (£7.9m) were unused substitutes for Manchester City.

Callum Wilson (£7.4m), missing with a thigh injury, will be “touch and go” to feature in Gameweek 5, meanwhile.

FPL OWNERSHIP AND CAPTAINCY – TOP 10K

Ronaldo’s ownership shot up from nought to 65% in the top 10k over the last fortnight and he was the most-captained player among these leading managers, with just over half handing him the armband.

Ronaldo and Lukaku were the only players in the above ‘most popular’ list to bank double-digit hauls so far but the Belgian is a veritable differential by comparison.

While almost 99% of the leading FPL managers had to stomach Antonio’s red card, over 7% endured the double ignominy of captaining him.

There was a big spike in Wildcard usage in Gameweek 4, with over 17% of the top 10k deploying the chip.

The Brighton goalkeeper double-up, bargain-bin defenders and ‘out of position’ mid-price midfielders are features of the template squad, with over 85% also opting for Ronaldo.

    Going forward everyone will have TAA, a Chelsea defender and 2 rotating defenders (probably Arsenal and Wolves).

    But there is a strong case for a 3rd premium defender (Cancelo or double Chelsea) over a 4th midfielder to roll out a 433 or 442 every week.

    1. Marcin the Pole
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Have been thinking about this ploy myself. Personally think the 5.5 - 6 defenders offer better long term value than the 6 - 7 mids.

      1. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        If you go with a double Chelsea defence in GW7 as your 2nd and 3rd premium defenders and switch one of them to Cancelo/Dias in GW12 you get a run of

        (SOU bre NEW nor BUR EVE WHU avl wat WOL LEE new LEI bre) till GW20.

          Wow, now that does look tasty.

    2. Milkman Bruno
        1 month, 6 days ago

        I think everyone will have Double Chelsea and a City defender

        1. Weeb Kakashi

          Trent?

        Yes. Having gone big up top with Ronaldo and Lukaku, I find that the unpopular 4-3-3 seems optimal. I'm looking at working towards something like TAA, Shaw, James and Rudiger or Semedo. No rotation except with the 4th midfielder, probably a 5.5 sort.

        1. Weeb Kakashi
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          I am on
          TAA Rudiger Reece Semedo Livra

        2. Weeb Kakashi
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Salah?

      • Crazy Train
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        A bit of a generalisation there, I don't think everyone will be 🙂

        I do think there are 2 wc templates out there now though, one with Ronaldo and one with Ronaldo and Lukaku. The former could likely accomodate that defensive template but those of us on the Ron/lukaku double up will likely be looking at 3/4 sub 4.5 defs and TAA

      • CONNERS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        If I were WCing now, I'd definitely be going with 4 at the back

        TAA + Dias/Cancelo + Rudiger + Wolves def

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

        The case against it is that points are in midfield, you could be stuck when you wanna jump on mid price mids. 4.5 defenders have more points potential off the bench than 4.5 midfielders. Cancelo/Dias is very tempting though.

        1. Weeb Kakashi
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          I think this could be the case last year as 2 premiums in midfield were needed and you could have only one mid priced option to play with in a midfield of 3 if you were playing 433.

          This year you can have have Salah and 2 mid priced mids in a 433. 2 spots are enough to play around with jumping on bandwagons.

        Not so many good midfielders right now.

        Greenwood, jota torres bebrahma rotation risk
        Sarr, gallagher, gray - inconsistent

        City or chelsea defenders provide better value

        1. diabydoesgallas
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          People are forgetting son. Nailed, proven, plays as a forward.

          1. Weeb Kakashi
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Right now he is injured. Spurs too dont look great.

      • Baines on Toast...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        No rush though. Defender prices slower to go up. All it takes is Torres/Jota/Raph to explode and people will reconsider.

      • Gunneryank
          1 month, 6 days ago

          It's another archtype that has it's merits for sure, as Andy Social can attest. I wildcarded into a 3-5-2 that i really like so I'm just an interested observer.

        • Gabbiadini
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          taa, chelsea and brighton/southampton/norwich at the moment.

        • FourLokoLeipzig
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Slight issue with none of the Chelsea defenders being nailed though. It’s seems that a lot of people who have finally given up playing Pep Roulette seem oddly confident predicting Tuchel’s team for him

          1. Whatever100
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            After watching the CHE game yesterday, maybe the keeper is the way to go for their defence. Granted he is expensive but season keeper.

      • BrockLanders
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Hwang looked very good for Wolves in his 30mins cameo. Scored a goal and caused big problems.

        Worth the risk on WC? Only 5.7m

        1. BrockLanders
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          3rd striker after CR7 & Lukaku

        2. Ask Yourself
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Not for me don’t think he’ll be a starter just yet. Dennis sadly still the only starting and viable sub 5.7m striker

          1. diabydoesgallas
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            King?

          2. Gabbiadini
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Wouldn't count out Broja.

              • 5 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              Looked really good after coming on I hope he does become a starter

              1. Gabbiadini
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 6 days ago

                he will start games, up to him to make himself undroppable.

        3. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          I've got my eye on him, but he'll need to oust Jimenez and start matches.

        4. CONNERS
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          Wolves defence much better picks imo. I wouldn't go there.

        best 3 premium + TAA wildcard I can make for you wildcarders out there:

            • 6 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            can be Guaita for the more risk-averse

          I'm assuming. that eventually Leeds will get a pen too 🙂

              They get so few that no one knows for sure but I'd expect Bamford - he was on them last season according to him

                I read an interview last season with Bam, I think Klich is meant to take them normally, but its a bit of a grey area, Bam does take them at times.
                I think they decide on the pitch, I know Klich has purposely given Bam pens before

        This Antonio Bamford decision is gonna be a real tough one.
        Is it really smart to move to Bamford now?
        European football is here as well so Antonio might get hooked by 70ish possibly in a lot of games
        But he’s just better than Bamford in general
        What are you guys doing?

        1. BrockLanders
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Bamford looks a very good option tbf

        2. The Tinkerman
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Bamford looks good but if you have Benrahma and Antonio as I do, I think the better move is actually to sell Benrahma given he is a rotation risk. Can handle benching Antonio for 1 GW, not a good fixture anyway.

          Will wait for the CL/EL games regardless

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

          No clear answer and don’t think game vs Liverpool changes much.
          Pulled the wc trigger def looking to bring in Bamford it’s whether I keep Antonio as I probably wouldn’t buy him back in the next few at 8.0m

        4. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      • HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        On wildcard, is Sa worth the extra money over a wolves defender?
        Best 8th attacker if going 3 up top for the foreseeable? Probably don’t have the luxury of having Gallagher at 5.5

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

          Appreciate any input

          1. Houldsworth Hatter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years

            I went with Marcal. Went well yesterday but time will tell. They do seem solid at the back giving up very few chances. I dropped Sa after considering him at length on wc and opted for a defender with attacking potential.

          I went with Sa. Good saves potential and solid defence. I think he’s worth the extra 0.5m. Marcal assists were very lucky & true assists. He’s also the least nailed out of the defence

        Hows this for a WC;

        Sanchez
        Semedo Marcal TAA Veltman Omobamidele
        Raphinha/Jota Saka/Gallagher Salah Greenwood Sissoko
        Lukaku Cr7 Dennis

        Any weaknesses?

          Hmm just shows how much you gotta squeeze when fitting Ron and Rom.
          I’m on wc and switching between them for gw7 to have a better midfield
          Your 8th attacker is pretty poor. Guess you’ll play 4 atb sometimes?

            'They' are FPL Statistics. I wasjt aware W/C-ing players affected rises, TBH...

          Ronaldo on 111.4% to rise last night at 2:15am GMT and is now 72.5%. How did they get that so massively wrong...?!!

            • 6 Years

            They don’t know if his price is still locked or not, Lukaku the same. It seems they changed the rule on how long a price is locked after a player signs and they don’t know how long it is now.

          Sanchez
          TAA Shaw White Ayling
          Salah Jota Raph Sarr
          Ronaldo Ings

          Steele - Gilmour Livramento Antonio*

          Silly to consider shipping Ings over Antonio? I'm probably equally good to save a FT, but bringing in Bamf for Ings this week and having Antonio back for Leeds sounds quite nice. Does mean I miss out on DCL v NOR however.

          It's probably already been mentioned, but has anyone noticed the overall stats and ranks look to be out on the gameweek history page?

          1. Zalk
            • 10 Years

            Was just about to mention this, my OP for GW3 is just 4p less than my current OP.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 12 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              I noticed they did a points and rank refresh midway through the day yesterday - might have even been before the Chelsea game had finished.

              It seems to have added any points you got at that stage onto your GW 3 score

          2. Wild Rover
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Yep, I'm showing a red arrow when I should have a big green one, because they are showing my rank last week as 275k when it was actually 422k

        11. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Team I am working towards from GW5, already have players marked with *

          Mendy* Foster*
          TAA* Matip Marcal Duffy* Livra*
          Salah* Raphina* Gray* Gallagher Biss*
          Ronaldo* Lukaku* Eduoard

          Some might say midfield is to light and defence is strange but my aim is to be completely different and just leave it as is.

          Cap is always going to be a headache though. Least very little rotation to worry about seeing it is set forget pending injuries etc.

          1. Pacer.
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Is there even one really adequate replacement for Gray/Gallagher?

            I really like your approach. A tweak to the GK to free up money would give you so much freedom in those two budget roles

            1. FOO FIGHTER
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              Mendy looking like a 6+ pointer every GW.

              I was trying to fit in Rudiger but then means having a 4.5 midfielder starting every GW so opted for Matip clean sheets.

                1 month, 6 days ago

                It's a lot to pay for a defender with little prospect of more than 6 points. He is absolutely nailed i guess which is something. Can just own someone like sa though who will probably start picking up some save and bonus and end up on about the same for a million less

                1. FOO FIGHTER
                  • 2 Years
                  1 month, 6 days ago

                  Yeah I guess I can downgrade Mendy and have 1m spare to keep Benrhama instead of bringing in Gallagher. We will see how GW5 goes and take it from there.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            It's not as nailed as you seem to think. Matip, Marcal and Duffy could all lose their places sooner rather than later. Edouard is currently an impact sub.

            1. pingissimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              Think you may be misjudging there Andy on your last point. 🙂

                • 11 Years

                I say 'currently' as in this here gameweek. I have him pencilled into my squad to succeed Antonio when I ditch him around GW11. I just think jumping on him right now, with Liverpool up next, is a little hasty.

            2. FOO FIGHTER
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              Matip nailed as long as he stays fit. Konate and Gomez will likely get selected in the cups.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Which to choose long term??

          A) Semedo + Jimenez
          B) Marcal + Bamford

          Have Raph and Traore as other attackers for Leeds and Wolves

          Must say, after the mass 'template panic' of GW1-2, the Ronaldo/Lukaku moves have really shaken things up. You can't have them all anymore.

          Sanchez

            • 9 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Raph. A lot of competition for 3 striker spots; far less in the mid-price midfielder range.

            1. No Salah
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              Well, I won’t be getting premium strikers before GW7 when I wildcard.

              So basically need for GW5 and 6 only.

          4. No Salah
            • 4 Years

            Three different answers 🙂

            Did Harrison pass the eye test? didn’t watch Leeds after GW1.

        16. Zalk
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Q: Antonio has an EO > 100% which means I will drop ranks on him. So, will I then gain rank when he scores a -1?

        17. Big_Andy_GAWA
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          I see Craig Cathcart dropped last night. Should be another 4.4 million starter, though. Is Watford and he does offer little in the way of attacking returns, though...

        18. myteamissheeeeeeeet
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          How about this for madness?

          TAA & Antonio to Lukaku & Marcal.

          A. Go for it
          B. You’re losing the plot!

          WC RMT Have gone with premium season keeper approach.
          £0ITB

          Sanchez
          TAA, Shaw, White, Marcal
          Salah, Jota, Raphinha, Gallagher
          Ronaldo, Lukaku

          subs: Steer, Livramento, Kovacic, Scarlett

          I know a defender or gallagher could be upgraded but there is not much manoeuvre

          I think Reguilon to Semedo is my move this week.. Antonio out -4 could be a possibility or do I play Duffy/Bissouma/Gilmour??

          What would you do with this mess:

          Sánchez, x
          TAA, Shaw, Ayling, Veltman, Amartey,
          Salah, Bruno, Jota, Benrahma, Bissouma
          DCL, Antonio(!), Perica(!)?
