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.

    I'm not one to boast (as I usually have nothing to boast about):

    99(-4) all out

    GW4: OR 481K
    GW5: OR 46K

    It feels kinda surreal.

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

      Smashed it! Well done!

      Wow

    3. Rassi

      Cue Bushwacker with his usual "Your mum must be proud".

      Seriously that is a score worth boasting about. Well done!

    4. More Cowbell

      99! Crikey, what was your GW rank? Did you use any chips?

    5. Danno - Emre Canada
      • 6 Years

      Boom!

    6. Magic Zico

      Nice one, I suspect Sarr Toney Rudiger or something?

        Team is linked, but yes.

      Awesome work!

      I went from 1.7 million to 300k in those 2 weeks after a good WC

    14. JohnnyRev7

      2 months, 15 days ago

      You're all very kind and I thank you.

      Guess I just got lucky.

  2. Life_Ban
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Am I insane to consider trading Bruno for Son???

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

        I mean, the getting rid of Bruno part isn’t terrible but I’m not sure Son is the way to go

      2. GreennRed
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        No.

        1. Life_Ban
            2 months, 15 days ago

            As in no I am not insane or no don't do it?

            1. GreennRed
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 15 days ago

              Not one bit insane. Son rusty today but he's a diamond. Am thinking of shipping Jota and Grealish for him and Smith Rowe.

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

          Not at all. If you think Son will produce the points, then go ahead by all means.

      3. Leif Erikson-Formerly of La…
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Some early thoughts re GW5... Hold Ferran or worth moving on for Sarr or Raph? No longer a huge fan of the Wolves triple up after performance vs Brentford

        Sanchez

        TAA, Duffy, Coady

        Salah, Jota, Torres, Traore

        Ronaldo, Bamford, Jimenez

        Subs: McGovern, Christensen, Dier, Mendy

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

          I am moving Torres out for Sarr, can't stand the roulette

          1. Leif Erikson-Formerly of La…
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            Part of the reason why I'm tempted to get rid.

        2. Scots Gooner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Our teams are virtually identical and I've got the same reservations about triple Wolves.

          Considering Torres to Sarr this week.

          Not sure what to do with Wolves, might give them one more week.

          1. Leif Erikson-Formerly of La…
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            Slight concern about Wolves but it's a different GW if Traore's shot off the crossbar is slightly lower and Jiminez buries that cross. Tempted by Sarr alright, Newcastle a prime fixture.

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

          I think I am going to keep Torres for a few more weeks. If you have a reasonable bench I think you can get more value out of other moves or saving. https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/man-city-sterling-ferran-guardiola-21607969 interesting piece also

          1. Finding Timo
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 15 days ago

            Torres should play v Chelsea but nit great short term fixtures

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

        What are you guys thinking of Begovic and Foster? I’m thinking of getting one. Really like begovic. But need to know I’ll get at least a few weeks out of him first

        1. GreennRed
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Are uou gonna start either of them or getting one to free up funds for another transfer?

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

            I’d play whoever I bought in. Currently have Steele and Sanchez. If I get in Begovic for Sanchez I play him and it allows me to get rudiger instead of christenssen next week

      5. Champions League Varane
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Traore and DCL to Gray and Antonio allows me to get Lukaku and a 4.4 (mendy,Delph) the following week.. worth it?

      6. Il Capitano
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 15 days ago

        1FT 0.5m ITB

        Sanchez
        TAA Shaw Livramento
        Salah Jota Raph Sarr
        Bamford Ronaldo Antonio

        Steele - White Gilmour Ayling

        Easy save for now?

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

          Similar squad here. Thinking hold this week and use 2ft to shift to Chelsea in gw7

          1. Il Capitano
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 15 days ago

            Yep, probably the way to go.

      7. Purse83
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        What to do guys? Thinking Torres to:

        A) Gray
        B) Raph
        C) Other

        Sanchez Steele
        TAA Shaw Tierney Coady Livra
        Salah Jota Sarr Torres Allan
        Ronaldo Jiminez Antonio

        2FT and so need to use one to carry 2 into GW7 likely for double Chelsea.

        1. Finding Timo
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 15 days ago

          B

      8. Lord of Ings
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        one Chelsea defender and one City defender is the plan
        Which ones would you go for?
        Currently on rudiger dias but Alonso cancelo although risky is so exciting :/

        1. banskt
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          On Cancelo. Planning for Alonso after next week.

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

          I am planning on Alonso, Rudiger & Cancelo with TAA.
          Think there are serious pints to be had in a strong defence this year

      9. Parsnips
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Anyone considering Shaw > Alonso?

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

          Shaw to a Chelsea defender is deffo a move I’m considering yes, not guaranteed to be Alonso for me though

      10. More Cowbell
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Hey guys, how many Chelski players do you think we’ll need from GW7? Also who are you looking to get in?

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

          I’m going to try and fit 2

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

          Lukaku and one of Rudiger/Alonso should be fine and maybe double up defence around some point

          1. noquarternt
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            Think this is the answer

        3. GreennRed
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          I jave Lukaku and Rudiger. Prob won't get a third.

          1. OneArseneWenger32
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 15 days ago

            Mount will come come by then right..imagine the treatment today should set him straight

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

        I know it’s a trap so please remind me having owned him earlier. I’m looking to ship out semedo, crazy to consider white? How have Arsenal looked defensively since the new signings?

        1. GreennRed
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          2 cleansheets for Ramsdale.

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

          Fixtures look nice. They seem to have turned a corner. Plenty of options in that price range if it doesn’t turn out fine. Go for it.

        3. Il Capitano
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 15 days ago

          1-0 to the Arsenal

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

          White did what I needed of him these last two weeks, okay as 1st bench player etc.

          Shipping Semedo is knee-jerk. They had a 6 minute panic & Wolves still have alright fixtures.

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

        Which option sounds better?

        1) get CR7 for -4 and (c) GW 6 and 7
        2) keep Bruno GW6 (with Salah (c)) and get Kaku (c) GW7

        1. BERGKOP
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          2

      13. Slurpy
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Foster (Sanchez)
        Shaw TAA White (Amartey, Ayling)
        Torres Salah Benrahma Greenwood (Brownhill)
        Antonio Lukaku Bamford

        Feel like I've been hanging in until I can wildcard for weeks now... not much to save me on my bench
        Got .5 ITB and 1 FT
        Anything I should shift this week? not sure if WC 7 or 8

        Could even roll this week and make 3 transfers next.

      14. OneArseneWenger32
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Digne (c) next week for one last and final (this year and every year from now on) hurrah.

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

        Is Ramsdale the number 1 goalkeeper at Arsenal now?

        1. GreennRed
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Yes.

      16. Lord of Ings
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Best combo?
        A)rudiger + Dias
        B)Cancelo + Alonso
        C)Dias + Alonso
        D)Rudiger + cancelo
        I’m mostly set on Dias(safety of starts) so it’s between rudi and Alonso…does Alonso seem nailed?

        1. GreennRed
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          A

        2. Alisson WondHaaland
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          I think D has the best mix of nailedness and excitment. Chelsea fullbacks seem to be pretty prone to rotation/cameos, ofc Cancelo can be rotated too but he hardly ever gets cameos so a good bench would cover him

      17. Zilla
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        So who is going to be your Chelsea defender(s)?

        1. BERGKOP
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Rudi

        2. Alisson WondHaaland
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Already have Rudi, as things stand Im probably not too keen on getting another.

          My target defence by GW 7 is TAA, 1 x Chelsea, 1 x City, 1 x Wolves and Livramento

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

          Have Alonso and will maybe get Rudiger later. But I normally don't like a double up...

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

          Think it has to be Rudi. 5.5m for a CB who doesn't score more than 2 goals a season doesn't feel great, though.

      18. Cheeto__Bandito
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Best option long term?

        A) Sarr, Ronaldo
        B) Son, Antonio

        1. BERGKOP
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          A

      19. More Cowbell
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        For Those teams who prefer one big hitter up front. Is anyone considering CR7 > Lukaku in GW7?

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

          Yes, that's the plan

        2. JohnnyRev7
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          I was but if Ronaldo keeps scoring a goal a game I'll stick with Ronaldo.

      20. Openboxman
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        How's this for a wildcard?

        Samchez - steele
        Alonso - Rudiger - trent - dias - tomiyasu
        Salah - sarr- raph - benrahma - ghallager
        Antonio - Ronaldo- 4.5

        1. BERGKOP
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Very nice.

          Decent. Def is really pricey tho

            Can swap dias to a 5m and benrahma to grealish. Fancy the city def though

          Its a solid team, but can you not delay it by a week? It would make offloading West Ham and United assets easier + Chelsea playing City isnt ideal

            I don't have Salah and hes gonna rise tonight I believe

          Perfect for this week

        Feel like I have no idea what to do at the moment

        Sanchez (Foster)
        TAA Marcal White (Livramento *Amartey)
        Salah Jota Greenwood Benrahma (Brownhill)
        CR7 Bamford Antonio
        *** = Problem players

        0.9 itb, 1 FT.

        A) Benrahma + Amartey --> Gallagher + Rudiger. (Can't afford Gray)
        ----However it doesn't make sense to do that move this week given the fixtures.
        B) Jota/Greenwood + Amartey --> Raphina + Rudiger/Alonso.
        C) Benrahma+Amartey --> Sarr + Christensen
        ----Not sure if Christensen is a safe nailed pick.

        But then again, if I do CR7 --> Lukaku in GW7, that frees up cash to get basically anyone. So maybe rolling the transfer is the better move? I'm thinking the only move that makes some sense this week is one of Jota/Greenwood/Benrahma to Gray to jump on his price rise and Norwich match.

        Was going to become the 1st in my league, but the guy I’m battling got a 20 point return from Livramento and Rudiger. 20 points from defenders playing away to City and Spurs. Sigh.

        Bit of a weird bench headache - Tierney in the NLD or Livra v Wolves? Also the option of playing both over Semedo tbh

          I'd play Tierney. Spurs don't look as threatening under Nuno, Arsenal have looked better in recent weeks, particularly defensively, plus he has attacking threat.

          Livra. Arsenal are not solid they just played against really poor teams. Having said that even Norwich and Burnley had chances to score.

        Time to jump off the Greenwood train? Think he's been lucky so far this season, but now he's got Ronaldo taking up his positions and Sancho/Martial/Lingard waiting in the wings. Seems time to take our points & run!

          I’m giving him the Villa at home fixture. If he blanks, I’ll get rid.

        GW6:

        Sanchez
        Shaw Taa, Coady
        Sarr Greenwood Salah Benny
        Ronaldo Bamford Antonio

        Foster, white, Allan, Gilmour.

        0.9 ITB 1 FT. What’s the move lads?

          Probably time to move on Greenwood, he's not having the same impact since CR7 arrived.

          Options like Raphinha look more appealing.

      26. Finding Timo

        Hope foster can keep place as thinking starting him over Sanchez GW6

        What to do with Wolves players? Some how wound up with triple Wolves - Coady/Traore/Jimenez - and not feeling entirely confident in them after the Brentford game.

        Worth one more week?

        1. Alisson WondHaaland
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          I have Marcal, Semedo and Jimi. Completely understand your frustration but trust the decision making process, you didnt buy them for one week. Give it a few weeks and reassess - maybe bench one if you dont feel confident

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

          Jimenez looks shot, wouldn’t be surprised if Hwang starts ahead of him next week

        How did Barnes look today?Anyone?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Was at fault for 2 goals being disallowed, that was his highlight

        schmeical

        TAA, Shaw, Coady, Cancelo
        Salah,Adama,benrahma, Jota
        Ronaldo, Antonio

        Manquillio, Gilmour, davis

        Thoughts on rolling the transfer? Want Raphinha but no blaring issues?

        78 points and up to OR 15k. Now to find a way to fit Lukaku in…
