It’s September, Harry Kane scored. A week of awesome points on the bench, the FPL is back after a short break. Let’s get rolling. Here’s what happened in GW4. As they say, September is here.
Man City 5-0 Liverpool:
City embarked on a demolition job, much to the disappointment of many template teams who placed their trust in the Liverpool forward line. Further, 52,916 managers did a straight swap of Mane for KdB, adding further to manager woes. As you read, 65,000+ managers have already shipped Mane out. Have you?
Jesus(3), Sane(2), Mendy(1)
Arsenal 3-0 Bournemouth:
Dany Welbeck scored, Twice. Yes, let that sink in. Last week’s villain with a poor performance spread cheer among Gooners with a brace. Lacazatte found the back of the net too and those waiting for an inspiring comeback from Bournemouth were left with nothing as they conceded three and scored none.
Welbeck (3), Kola(2), Monreal(1)
- Our picks:
Kolasinac is a very good option when played at left. But you know Wenger. Don’t be surprised if he plays as a DM next game.
Brighton 3-1 West Brom:
And Brighton are off the mark, surprisingly against a side known to defend well. Evans returned from injury, clocking a full 90 minutes.
Gross(3), Hemed(2), Bruno(1)
Everton 0-3 Spurs:
It’s September. Shipped out by 140,000+ managers for a swap to Morata, Harry Kane got back to scoring ways. But the question that still remains is, “can they do it on any day or night at Wembley?” We expect them to answer that soon. Tripper is back to the team and is at £5.4 as I type this, a great way into the Spurs defence.
Kane(3), Davies(2), Trippier(1)
Leicester 1-2 Chelsea:
Oh that lost clean sheet, I know, it hurts. Morata, Vardy and Kante scored in Chelsea’s 1-2 win but most FPL managers were ruing a lost clean sheet. That doesn’t take anything away from a dominant Chelsea performance too see off Leicester.
Kante(3), Azpi(2), Rudiger(1)
- Our suggestion: As Morata gets going, we think he’d be as good as Costa was, last season.
Saints 0-2 Watford:
Who else could ruin such a beautiful start to a season? The saints’ horror show continued as Watford put two past them. Kiko, for the third time this season in 4 games, registered bonus points. Might be a good option after the Man City game next week.
Docoure(3), Kiko(2), Gomes(1)
Stoke 2-2 Man United:
Very much like last season, United’s perfect run ends at Stoke. We also saw a very average performance, unlike the first three matches. The top captain pick for four weeks in a row, Lukaku scored, to the delight of his owners.
Moting(3), Shaqiri(2), Rashford(1)
- Our suggestion:
Jese looks dangerous, might be a good cheap mid.
Burnley 1-0 Crystal Palace:
Two goals in two for Wood, four losses in four for Palace. Priced at 6.5 and owned by just 1%, Wood was the standout star in the game. To make things worse, Palace face Man City, Man Utd and Chelsea continuously after the next GW. What does that say? Right, stay away from crystal Palace till their fixtures clear up.
Wood(3), Ward(2), Cabaye(1)
Swansea 0-1 Newcastle:
Did you bench Elliot? Very good, I did too. 895,330 others did. Cheers to our decision making and our awesome bench. A goal from Lascelles saw Newcastle through. 116,000 managers put their trust in Renato Sanches and he returned a clean sheet point because he was taken off before Newcastle scored.
Lascelles(3), Gamez(2), Elliot, Manquillo(1 each)
West Ham 2-0 Huddersfield:
First loss for Huddersfield as Ayew scored one and assisted one to help West Ham win it. This is why they bought him from Swansea, this is what he can do. Chica, FPL’s third most popular forward with 28% ownership, blanked and has already been sold by 61,000 managers.
Obiang(3), Ayew(2), Fonte(1)
