FPL Gameweek 5 Tips | @FPL_JianBatra –
“If on a Wildcard, don’t let Chelsea’s next few fixtures make you avoid their defenders. Long term they are great picks and Spurs, with the way they are playing, provide a very viable opportunity to get a clean sheet.”
FPL Gameweek 5 Tips | @BigManBakar –
Wolves defence 21/22 v 20/21
Shots in the box conceded per game: 5.5 v 7.8
Big chances conceded per game: 0.75 v 1.9
Average xG conceded per game: 1 v 1.4
Their full backs have really caught my eye:
Since Nelson Semedo (£4.9m) started playing in Gameweek 2, he is:
*Top among defenders for penalty area touches and big chances
*2nd among defenders for xG
*4th among defenders for touches in the final third. Only Trent, Cancelo and Shaw have had more
FPL Gameweek 5 Tips |@FPL_Heisenberg –
“Don’t unbalance your squad trying to squeeze in too many big hitters. However, you can have Alexander-Arnold, Salah, Ronaldo and Lukaku with a decent team around them.”
FPL Gameweek 5 Tips |@FFCommunity_ –
“Don’t sell Antonio. He missed just one tough game in his fixture schedule and as the most in form player in the game right now, you’ll likely want him straight back for GW6.”
FPL Gameweek 5 Tips | @FPLMatthew –
“Sometimes, it’s worth biting the bullet on a hit, if it’s a move you’re going to make anyway. Otherwise, you may continually be a transfer or two behind where you want your team to be”
FPL Gameweek 5 Tips | @WGTA_FPL –
“If in doubt, doing nothing is often a viable option. If you’ve got, say, Antonio and aren’t sure any alternative is worth the move, then why not leave it a week? Use your squad depth, and reassess with 2FTs in hand to maximise your flexibility.”
FPL Gameweek 5 Tips | @FFH_Fergi –
He was extremely busy this week, but I’ve heard he’s a fan of Adama Traore ;)
FPL Gameweek 5 Tips | @Hibbo_FPL –
“Those with the Wildcard as insurance can afford to play a bit looser and maximise the next weeks. For example, if the pack sit on their hands and hold Antonio, this can create an opportunity for that quick overall rank boost with rank tiers so condensed”.
FPL Gameweek 5 Tips | @RichClarkeFPL –
“Make your decision to Wildcard relative to the health of your own squad. Gameweek 1 squads will wane somewhat, but patience until Gameweek 7/8 could still deliver the optimum benefit.”
FPL Gameweek 5 Tips | @pras_fpl –
“Season long data and info trumps 4 gameweeks info. Which is why Leeds are still the team to back. Get at least one attacker if you can ahead of a great run of fixtures.”
FPL Gameweek 5 Tips | @FFNinja_ –
“Don’t kick yourself regarding your bad past transfers. Let it go and look forward. Play the fixtures and value (PPM) game. e.g, is it worth a hit for Ronaldo/Lukaku this week?! Don’t chase points.”
