Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 5: Three in, three out

After a brief international break, Fantasy football returns this weekend as Tottenham take on Liverpool on Saturday the 15th of September at 12:30 pm UK time.

So, all of your transfers for GW5 need to be done by 11:30 am UK time on Saturday.

But if you are struggling to choose who to sign and who to sell this week, here are some tips.

3 in including Manchester City forward

José Holebas (4.8)

At just 4.8, Jose Holebas is an absolute must to have in your FPL side.

Watford have had a greats start to the 2018/19 season and Holebas is a key reason why.

The defender has helped Watford keep one clean sheet.

Holebas has also managed to score one in Watford’s 2-1 win over Crystal Palace and earn two assists as Watford beat Tottenham.

This excellent form puts Holebas second on the FPL defenders leaderboard behind Marcos Alonso.

Sergio Aguero (11.3)

Manchester City take on Fulham this week and while Fulham are more than capable of scoring goals, they do struggle to keep them out.

Couple this with the fact Manchester City were the highest scoring team in the league last season and City could well put three or four past them this weekend.

So, you should probably have a City forward in your side this week.

The obvious and probably best choice is Aguero.

Aguero is currently top of the FPL forwards board with 30 points after scoring three and assisting two for City already this season.

Sadio Mane (10.0)

While Mo Salah stole the show for Liverpool last season, the 2018/19 season looks to belong to Mane.

Mane has already scored an impressive four goals in four games for Liverpool.

This puts him top of the midfielder leaderboard with 39 points and at just 10.0 you would be mad not to have him in your side.

3 out including Manchester United defender

Luke Shaw (5.1)

Luke Shaw won Manchester United’s player of the month for August.

Shaw also scored his first senior goal as Manchester United beat Leicester City 2-1.

The full-backs displays have also generally been top quality this season.

However, Shaw suffered yet another injury in England’s game vs Spain this past weekend.

Therefore, Shaw is unlikely to feature this weekend for United.

Bernardo Silva (7.6)

With Kevin De Bruyne out for Manchester City, signing Bernardo Silva for your FPL did seem like a good shout.

Especially given that Silva costs just 7.6.

But since the opening weekend of the season, Bernardo Silva has done nothing.

Also, Silva did not start City’s last game vs Newcastle and is carrying a slight knock.

So, it is probably best to sell Silva on as he is unlikely to start for the Sky Blues this weekend.

David De Gea (5.9)

David De Gea is the most expensive keeper on FPL and for good reason.

Manchester United had a great defensive record last season and De Gea made countless top saves.

However, this season, United have not been great at the back.

They have kept just one clean sheet in their first four games.

As a result, De Gea is on just 11 points for the season, a total which does not match his high price tag.
