Every week the brilliant Holly Shand brings us her insight into the blend of FPL form vs FPL fixtures to help us decide on the best transfers for the coming Gameweek.
Another intriguing weekend of Premier League action means there's more change reflected in the Gameweek 4 Form vs Fixture charts.
The combined chart demonstrates the sides with the best balance of form and fixtures going forward. There's also my top three transfer targets for Gameweek 4.
The FPL fixtures chart uses the site fixture ticker, focusing on attack for the next four Gameweeks. The form charts also have attack in mind, studying the number of goals scored per game, whilst reflecting the format of the site ticker.
FPL Fixtures Chart
Wolves retain their place at the top of the FPL Fixtures Chart, with three home games in their next four and two promoted sides next up: Fulham and Leeds United. It's likely to be a tough sell for Wolves assets here, given that West Ham have just thrashed them 4-0, however, Raul Jimenez (£8.6m) already has two goals to his name from ten shots and remains well worth investment.
Wolves are followed by Leicester City, Liverpool and Southampton. Saints have a host of options, with Danny Ings (£8.4m) leading the way. Since encountering an early price drop, he's scored three goals, with one of those coming from the penalty spot. He's not had many chances though, with those three goals coming from just six shots. Has he been lucky or clinical?
At the other end, West Ham and Arsenal are floundering at the bottom of the charts. However, we've already had tell-tale warning signs that their assets can excel despite tough fixtures, with West Ham impressing against Wolves last weekend. Given a lack of solidity from most Premier League sides at the back, Pierre-Emerick Aubamayeng (£11.9m) and Michail Antonio (£6.4m) could be worth holding onto.
FPL Form Chart
When it comes to form, Leicester City are head and shoulders above the rest. No other side can come close to the 12 goals they've scored in their opening three games, with four of them coming from the penalty spot. Scoring five goals against Manchester City at the Etihad provides real weight behind their goal-scoring prowess. Liverpool join them with their promising goal-scoring form, averaging three goals per game to Leicester's four.
Leeds United and Everton are holding their own in the form chart, having scored eight goals across their opening three games. Patrick Bamford (£5.8m) cannot be ignored with three goals and two assists already: he's the best value player in the game and his 90 minutes against Sheffield United provides encouragement that he will continue to get regular starts despite the threat of Rodrigo (£5.9m).
At Everton, there's still a desire to clamour for their in-form assets. James Rodriguez (£7.7m) has created ten chances, despite only having one goal and one assist to his name. Perhaps more returns are coming. Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.4m) is one of a small number of players to produce an attacking return in every single game, but Richarlison (£8.0m) does have the crucial spot-kicks.
Form vs Fixtures
It's a consistent story at the top of the overall charts, with the same side dominating for a third week running. Anyone who's backed them to this date will have been rewarded with points, and given the upcoming fixtures, there's a hope that the same level of returns will continue.
