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, there just waiting around messing about just for lols.

      They just have to press a button right, you should apply to be their CTO or lead developer. Sounds like you know what you're on about.

  3. Pep's Money Laundry

    Bottomed on previous post

    Start two?

    A. Livramento (WOL)
    B. James (MCI)
    C. Semedo (sou)
    D. Duffy (pal)

    At the moment I think I will start Livramento plus one other as it looks like saints defence is decent plus wolves attack is lacking

    1. Snooze ya lose
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years

      A, D

    2. Gandalf
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      A,D,B,C in that order I think, maybe B before D

  4. el polako

    It's hard not to rage WC but want one more week of Chelsea to understand who are the best options (apart from Stormzy) alongside Rudiger.

  5. The Big Fella
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    I am playing 442. For defenders I have James, TAA and Shaw (Marcal is the fourth playing defender and then I have Livramento). After next GW, I want to get rid of Shaw and bring in either a City defender or Rudiger. Who would you go for or would you keep Shaw, despite the fixture change?

    1. jay01
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Shaw for rudi imo. Not sold on city yet

      1. fusen
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Not sold on city yet?!

        Look at Dias' points scores every week since the start

      2. QueefParkRangers

        wakey wakey

  6. Bam Saka Laca
    • 2 Years

    Good to go?

    Sánchez
    TAA Semedo Rudiger
    Salah Traoré Torres Jota
    Ronaldo(c) Bamford Antonio

    Steele Sissoko Jansson Williams

    1. BooYaKasha
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      U keeping Torres?

  7. Captain Vantastic™
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Did Mark captain Lukaku in the end then?

    1. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      nope

  8. JVALDEZ
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Is it time to finally admit Alonso is nailed?

    1. tangtastic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      He's not even remotely. Chillwell is a superior option for Tuchel, and he knows it.

      The question is *when* he loses his place.

      1. JVALDEZ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Away to Spurs means nailed

        1. tangtastic
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Case closed then. Chillwell is out for the season, you heard it here first.

      2. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Chelsea fan here. I love Chilly but you don't drop Alonso in this kind of form.

        1. tangtastic
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Sure, which is why Chilwell might have to wait.

          But he will be back.

  9. jai1212
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    A. Mount
    B. Traore
    C. Webster

    Who should be the first one to go?

    1. JVALDEZ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      B

    2. tangtastic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      C by a country mile.

      He's injured (!)

  10. ingvar1111
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    torres -> Sarr?

    1. JVALDEZ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Yes

  11. Arvin-ation
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Sanchez (4.5)
    TAA Shaw Coady Christensen (Duffy)
    Salah Jota Raphina Gray (4.5)
    Ronaldo Lukaku (4.5)

    Thoughts on a nice kneejerk Jota ----> Sarr?

    Don't really like Brentford, City and United in the next 4. Might as well offload now ?

    1. JVALDEZ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Do it

    2. chaser123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Why get rid of Jota? He could have had double figures in the last two games quite easily

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        same can be said of Traore.

        1. tangtastic
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          which is a reason to keep both, if you have them already

        2. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          It sounds like me and you are both holding out for the haul what will never come ha.

          1. Arvin-ation
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            This. I prefer to be more reactive than keep hoping. Firmino should be back soon and the fixtures turn happy to pick up Sarr for NEW and lee in the next 2 and then we'll see who crops up.

            1. Arvin-ation
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 15 days ago

              My defence and forwards are pretty set for the long run, so leaves me with more manoeuvrability and tinkering with my midfielders

    3. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      I am keeping Jota

  12. HD7
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Any idea if Raph or TAA may miss next GW?
    I think I will save a transfer if not.

    Ramsdale
    Trent James Dias Marcal
    Salah Raph Gray Sarr
    Ronaldo Lukaku

    Steele Sissoko Livra Scarlett

    1. chaser123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Was thinking exactly the same

  13. fusen
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    A week to forget for most people

    Just have to ride out next week with the current team and then GW7 mass changes can happen and everyone will be happier :X

  14. Scholes Out For Summer
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Thoughts on Jota + Greenwood --> Gray + Sarr (-4)

    Opens up money to also go for Lukaku alongside Ronaldo next GW

    1. chaser123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Not for me…Jota and Greenwood could easily outscore them this week

      1. Scholes Out For Summer
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        So my logic was Jota has Brentford whos at home and have great defensive numbers, and Greenwood has Villa who has looked really solid for two games in a row and Mason not getting chances with Ronaldo hoovering up the chances.

        Sarr and Gray has amazing fixtures and the major offensive outlet for their team.

  15. Christina.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Anyone have Willy Wonka's fpl id??

    1. Sir Edo

      He do not play the game this year, really hope the legend is ok!

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years

          Thanks, but not anymore, at least I challenged him in HoF many years ago.. 🙂

  16. chaser123
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Should I save a transfer so I have 2 to bring in Chelsea players in GW7?

    Sanchez
    TAA Shaw Coufal
    Salah Jota Greenwood Raphinha Benrahma
    Ronaldo Antonio

    (Steele Coady Amartey Perica)

    1. Game of Throw_ins

      absolutely

        Thanks

  17. Atimis
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Ok, you’ve convinced me, thoughts on Bruno Scarlet to 4.5 CR7 -4?

    I would keep CR7 until GW9 and switch him to Lukaku. Would (c) next two GWs as well.

  18. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Torres to who one week punt max 7.3m?

    a) Sarr (NEW)
    b) Gray (NOR)
    c) Trossard (cry)
    d) Raphinha (WHU) (if fit)

    1. Pep's Money Laundry
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      The fixtures say A or B

  19. Sharkytect
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    So....is alonso nailed?

    1. 1984 TC
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Well, as a famous person once said that if

      1. 1984 TC
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Hit post too soon and now I forgot who said what.

        1. Sharkytect
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Hahaha.
          Must.Go.Slower.

  20. bitars
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Operation get Ronaldo in.

    2FT 3,5m itb

    3-5-2

    Schmeichel, Ward

    Trent, Reguilon, Coufal, (Ayling, Williams)

    Salah, Sarr, Jota, Grealish, Greenwood

    Antonio, Ings, (Perica)

    Should I move

    Ings+Grealish to Ronaldo+Raphina

    or

    Ings+Greenwood+Coufal to Ronaldo+Gray+Cancelo for a -4?

    1. Toby Lerone
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      I would

      1. bitars
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        1 or 2?

        1. Toby Lerone
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Sorry misread it. Would do the last option

          1. Toby Lerone
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            Raph is injured? Maybe wait to hear how bad it is maybe option 1 could work then

  21. ViperStripes
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Seems like this year there is a glut of cheap to mid priced midfielders that are scoring well:

    Sarr (got him in on WC)
    Benrahma (didn't get him in, never had him, didn't think it would continue)
    Gray
    Gallagher
    Kovacic
    Doucoure

    Makes it easy to have Lukaku, Salah & Ronaldo

    1. JONALDINHO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      None of them are good options. Only good cheap option at the moment is Raphinha

      1. Heiro
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        What makes you say they aren't good options?

        They have been pretty consistent.

        I hear you on Raphinia, he's just class.

      2. Toby Lerone
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Who is injured

      3. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Gallaghers form is 7.0, Grays is 6.5, Kovacic 5.8 and Doucoures is 4.8. They’re all good options.

      4. Noisy Neighbour
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        What a ridiculous statement.

  22. Heiro
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Hi all, I'm planning to get Lukaku in for GW7 onwards. I have 4 free between now and then.

    Jota/Greenwood/Shaw/Jiminez
    To
    Sarr/Bissouma/Rudiger/Lukaku

    Bissouma would be fodder.

    Thoughts?

    1. Kryptonite666
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Who will be the 4th playing player if Bissouma is fodder ?

      1. Heiro
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Sarr Bruno Salah Gray
        Antonio Lukaku

        1. Kryptonite666
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Moves seem great !

  23. Kryptonite666
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Would you get rid of Ronaldo to spread the funds in this threemium team ?

    Sanchez
    TAA James Rudiger Marcal (Livramento)
    Salah Jota Raphinha Gray (Mendy)
    Lukaku Ronaldo (Perica)

    1. Kryptonite666
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      For Antonio (c) that is

    2. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      no

      1. Kryptonite666
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Dankie. Any other moves you recommend ?

        1. Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          is that a WC? I would lose Jota sooner or later.

          1. Kryptonite666
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            WIld carded last week. Was a failure till the Rudiger goal.

    3. Heiro
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Could you not downgrade Jota to upgrade Perica?

    4. waltzingmatildas
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      No, looks decent

    5. 1984 TC
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Goeie span!

  24. sovietrockettes
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    This will make you guys feel better:

    Benrahma>Traore, Toney>Jimenez for a -4 were my moves this week........22 points down! LOL

    1. Kryptonite666
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Ouch ! Tough luck. Made sense on paper.

  25. Jdpz
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Bruno and 4.5m to 4.5m and Lukaku worth a hit?

    1. TKC07
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Don't think its worth a hit..

  26. artvandelay316
      2 months, 15 days ago

      GTG with this WC?

      Sanchez
      TAA, Alonso, White
      Salah, Benrahma, Sarr, Kovacic
      Ronaldo, Antonio, Lukaku

      (Foster, Livra, Allan, Williams)

      1. Bertonian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 15 days ago

        The midfield is not sustainable

    • bitars
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      The best defensive City option?
      Cancelo played every game until today.

      So Cancelo for the fun or Dias for security?

        I'd go cancelo with a decent bench

        Cancelo has played every game so far but I guess more prone to rotation than Dias

      Kovacic - why no love, 1 goal and 3 assists in 5 GW's, fixtures get easier from GW7 and he's only 5.1m
