First up for Gameweek 5, we turn to a player who will be champing at the bit to get going after his move from Liverpool; one Rhian Brewster.
Having made serious waves in the Reds’ youth system, the forward was a revelation for Swansea in the Championship last season, and is now assigned to remedy Sheffield United’s problems in front of goal.
Brewster has shown his undoubted ability in front of goal, however, whether he can convert in the top-flight remains to be seen.
What cannot be disputed, is his dirt-cheap 4.5 value for all to see.
As Fulham’s leaky defence venture to Bramall Lane, Brewster could be thrown straight in by boss Dean Smith, and may be in for early rewards.
Chelsea return to Premier League action against Southampton, and with attacking options in abundance for the hosts, Tammy Abraham appears to be the best-set to fire the Blues in Gameweek 5.
Though appearing as Chelsea’s third choice striker with the arrival of Timo Werner and the existing presence of Olivier Giroud, Abraham has forced his way back into the number nine role, as Werner for now, is pushed out wide.
Having played every minute of the last two games, the striker has only a goal and assist to his name, but given the approach the Saints have taken on the road in recent weeks and months, will almost certainly be given ample opportunity to impress here.
A player who we tipped as one of the surprise packages of the season, Matheus Pereira is slowly but surely coming to the fore in the West Midlands and is primed to make his impact this weekend.
Starting all four of West Bromwich Albion’s games on the Baggies’ return to the Premier League, the Brazilian has already a double-figure tally to his name from Gameweek 2 and in Gameweek 5, the visiting Burnley may be in for a rough ride.
Pereira was a star turn for Slaven Bilic, particularly at the Hawthorns last term and as the midfielder looks to make West Brom tick, Pereira offers outstanding value.
The Clarets have shipped seven goals on the road in just two games so far, and coupled with West Brom’s recent improvement, Pereira is one to consider for Gameweek 5.
Whilst many are turning to Tottenham Hotspur’s attack after their 6-1 annihilation of Manchester United in Gameweek 5, alternatively, a move for Sergio Reguilon could reap real differential rewards.
Spurs’ signing of the Real Madrid full-back was nothing less than a coup for the Lilywhites during the transfer window.
Defensively, there remain questions over the Spaniard, but offensively his forays in attack signified Sevilla’s route to their latest UEFA Europa League success last season.
West Ham make the trip to North London this weekend and having switched to a back three system, look far happier in defence themselves and will not be conceding six goals in the fashion Manchester United did a fortnight ago.
The clash here could be a tighter game than many expect, which sees Reguilon as a savvy alternative.
Punt of the week: Helder Costa
Monday night’s clash at Elland Road rounds off Gameweek 5 off in potential style and as Wolves travel to Leeds United, former player Helder Costa is this week’s Punt of the Week.
Lining up the face his former side, the Portuguese winger was a driving force behind Nuno Espirito Santo‘s side’s promotion to the top flight two years ago.
Thought the Whites’ goal train has slowed down significantly since the seven goals of the opening two weeks, Leeds have lost none of their cavallier attacking attitude and the visitors likewise, will be on the front foot here.
Costa has become the second most owned Leeds player with now 10% ownership, a just a value of just 5.7.
Having netted twice in Yorkshire in Gameweek 2, Costa will want to show his former manager what he is missing.
Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 5 deadline is Saturday, 11:00 UK time.
