Scoreboard

FPL Gameweek 5 round-up: Sunday’s goals, assists, bonus and injuries

Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.6m) scored again for Manchester United as Said Benrahma (£6.4m) rewarded his owners with his first goal since Gameweek 2.

Neal Maupay (£6.5m) and Danny Welbeck (£6.0m) inspired Brighton and Hove Albion moved up to fourth after a 2-1 win over Leicester City, while Chelsea kept another clean sheet at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Our usual, more detailed Scout Notes will follow for all of today’s games but in the meantime, our long-dormant 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

FPL TAKEAWAYS

  • Since making his second Manchester United debut in Gameweek 4, Cristiano Ronaldo has registered three goals, 13 goal attempts, 12 shots in the box, five big chances and 3.24 expected goals (xG), all league-leading totals. During that time, team-mate Bruno Fernandes (£12.0m) has managed just one attempt in the box, though it did hit the post.
  • Following today’s game, Luke Shaw (£5.5m) ranks 30th amongst all defenders for FPL points with 18. Despite that, his 14 chances created is only bettered by Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.6m), Jack Grealish (£8.0m) and Raul Jimenez (£7.5m), while his average position (no 23) v West Ham United was as advanced as Mason Greenwood (£7.7m) on the opposite flank.

Manchester United’s average position map v West Ham United in Gameweek 5

  • Man Utd delivered 33 crosses into the box against West Ham, their highest total in a single league game so far this season, with Shaw responsible for 16 of them.
  • Benrahma’s deflected effort for West Ham opened the scoring at the London Stadium, his first goal since Gameweek 2. The Algerian now ranks second amongst all midfielders for FPL points, only behind Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah (£12.5m). Next up for the Hammers is a trip to Leeds United.
  • Brighton moved up to fourth in the Premier League table after a 2-1 victory over Leicester City, their fourth win of the season. Budget enabler Shane Duffy (£4.2m) supplied the assist for Maupay’s penalty, and has now provided 27 FPL points across his five starts.
  • It’s now three defeats in five matches for Brendan Rodgers’ Foxes in 2021/22. However, Jamie Vardy (10.4m) continues to produce, with three goals, one assist and five bonus points during that time.
  • It was a quiet afternoon for Spurs duo Harry Kane (£12.2m) and Son Heung-min (£10.0m), as Chelsea restricted them to a combined four shots, with just one arriving in the box.
  • Marcos Alonso (£5.7m) made his fifth consecutive start today, as Ben Chilwell (£5.7m) still waits to play his first minute of Premier League football this season. Today’s assist for the Spaniard – his second attacking return of the campaign – means that he is now the top scoring defender in the game.

INJURIES AND BANS

The best goalkeepers for UEFA Champions League Fantasy

Edouard Mendy (£6.0m) missed out for Chelsea today, with Kepa Arrizabalaga (£4.9m) replacing him in goal.

The Senegalese stopper was involved in a collision towards the end of Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Zenit on Tuesday, which meant he had trouble diving.

“Edou got a huge hit, we tried everything in the last days but he never felt fully comfortable in diving.” – Thomas Tuchel

Yves Bissouma (£4.6m) appeared to pick up a knock at the Amex Stadium. Despite not being taken off initially, he was finally withdrawn after 79 minutes, with Graham Potter providing an update after the match:

“He was desperate to play, the medical department were ok with it. He extended his knee a little bit. As the game starts to go on, the fatigue might be a problem, but he was desperate to go out. It was a decision for the medical department.”

Elsewhere, Son made a surprise return from injury and played the full 90 minutes for Spurs, as did team-mate Eric Dier (£4.6m). 

However, the injuries sustained by Lucas Moura (£6.5m) and Steven Bergwijn (£6.0m) in the Europa Conference League kept them out.

After serving one-match bans in Gameweek 5, Japhet Tanganga (£4.6m) and Michail Antonio (£7.9m) will both now be available for their respective teams next weekend.

        Yeah, I may just decide to join you 🙂

    2. SB007

    Harrison to

    A) Gray
    B) Traore
    C) Odegaard
    D) Gallagher

    6.0 for transfer.

    1. TheDragon
      • 3 Years

      Gray if short term

      Gallagher if longer term

      1. T.Henry14
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Short term probably, WC still unused.

    Good enough for the next week?

    Sanchez
    TAA/Shaw/Duffy
    Salah(c)/Bruno/Greenwood/Raph/Sarr
    Bam/Antonio

    Steele/Ayling/Tsim/Scarlet

    The plan is:
    For GW7: Scarlet Bruno Shaw to Kaku (c) 4.5 Rudi/Alonso -4
    For GW8: Ayling to Dias/Cancelo

    1. TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      It’s a little bit held together by sticky tape but yes good enough for this week.

      Transfer plans wil have you in a good position providing no injuries.

      I’ve got Greenwood but watching yesterday I’m worried his time is nearly over from an FPL perspective. Sarr is obv good for next couple of weeks but he may need to go soon after too

      1. Atimis
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Yeah thinking about Green out too

  4. tibollom

    Got exact funds to do Ings to Bam with my FT.. or should I roll FT and get Bam after West ham???

    sanchez Foster
    taa shaw ayling marcal livra
    salah green benhrama raph brownhil
    antonio ronaldo ings

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      I would keep Ings. He has only failed to return in 1 GW. Bamford is in a team with serious injury problems at the back which will affect their attacking play.

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Ings also has UTD and Spurs up next, both very suspect defences and then a sea of green fixtures up to GW13. Keep.

      1. tibollom
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        thanks mate, so would you play Ings vs Utd instead of Livra/Ayling/Marcal?

    3. SB007
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      stay Ings

  5. DavidBadWillie

    Many out there with Bruno and Ronaldo??

    I have gone without Salah with these next two games for United in mind.

    Am expecting both to haul v Villa & Everton.

    1. Joey Tribbiani
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 14 days ago

      I will congratulate you on your Bruno points next week in advance, because I have just taken him out for Salah.
      And to Salah owners, Im sorry that Ive now ruined him

      1. DavidBadWillie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Thinking of capping him tbh. Bruno is due a brace.

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Ronaldo the only one to own from UTD now IMO. Not having Salah with 56.5% ownership which will keep on increasing with the form he is in = a death trap for your rank.

      1. DavidBadWillie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Just got a massive green up to 125k without him.

        I'll get him in at some point. But these next two Bruno will outscore him I reckon.

        1. DavidBadWillie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 14 days ago

          160k I should say

        2. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Ok

  6. TeddiPonza
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    What to do with Ferran Torres?

    A. Keep and save transfer
    B. Sell for Jota/Gray/Sarr

    Thinking short term as I think I will WC in 7 or 8.

    Thanks

    1. SB007
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      A

  7. Boom XhakaLacaSaka

    Best 1 week punt this week?

    1. Gomolon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Mane/Gray/Sarr are the 3 on my radar atm

  8. Fuddled FC
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    I still have Barnes. I have upto £8.3m for a potential transfer

    Would you

    a) play him v Burnley
    b) Barnes > Pogba (v Villa)
    c) Barnes > Gray (v Norwich)

    1. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Definitely play him, he's hotting up and went ballistic in same fixture last year in a 4-2

  9. Maeki2
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
