This season has not been good to me. Work coupled with personal commitments has taken time away from the fantasy game. GW4 will be the first weekend since the weekend started that work won’t take on me the road. With the transfer deadline past, things will start to get interesting as the new squad additions settle in and try to make their mark. And for the rest of the fantasy community, it’ll be a question of whether we should get on the bandwagon now. With the, let’s have a look at the fixtures.
- Manchester City v Liverpool
- Southampton v Watford
- Brighton & Hove Albion v West Bromwich Albion
- Everton v Tottenham Hotspur
- Arsenal v AFC Bournemouth
- Leicester City v Chelsea
- Stoke City v Manchester United
- Burnley v Crystal Palace
- Swansea City v Newcastle United
- West Ham United v Huddersfield Town
Stay Away From
Swansea City v Newcastle United
This has all the signs of a snooze fest. Both teams and low on goals and I’m not too sure if this will be the match for either team to stem the tide but I’m willing to bet it isn’t. Perhaps worth considering keepers from either team if you’re confident that this will be a goalless draw.
Arsenal v AFC Bournemouth
With only a win on opening day and coming off losses to Stoke and Liverpool, Arsenal doesn’t seem like a good pick. But with so much at stake, a good solid against win against Bournemouth will help to appease the supporters and help keep Wenger away from the unemployment office.
Stoke City v Manchester United
Lukaku is racking up the points and with a 100% record in the lead, perhaps now would be a good time to get on the bandwagon of Man Utd.
- de Gea, David (MUN) – The obvious choice for this week. 3 clean sheets thus far and a game against Stoke should allow DDG to keep the streak going.
- Hart, Joe (WHU) – A nice alternative to have if you’re sick of DDG.
- Alonso, Marcus (CHE) – Chelsea’s most stable defender and guaranteed starter.
- Valencia, Antonio (MUN) – He should be on your list and if he isn’t, please get on board now.
- Ryan Bertrand (SOU) – Clean sheet potential is high with a relatively easy opponent.
- Bellerin, Hector (ARS) – A home game against Bournemouth to help them the tide and bring their back on track.
- Creswell, Aaron (CHE) – Potential for a clean sheet with some attaching points.
- Mkhitaryan, Henrikh (MUN) – Currently the top midfielder in PXI
- Alli, Dele (TOT) – The man to have if you’re looking at Spurs.
- Silva, David (MCI) – Something to consider if you discount still don’t think too highly of Liverpool.
- Tadic, Dusan (SOU) – A forgotten fantasy man but I believe it’s time for him to pick it up again.
- Sigurdsson, Gylfi (EVE) – Will be the man to have if you believe it’ll be a goalfest with Everton.
- Sanchez, Alexis (ARS) – He should be able to find the net against Bournemouth.
- Morata, Alvaro (CHE) – Chelsea’s undisputed man up front.
- Giroud, Olivier (ARS) – Consider both Giroud and Sanchez if you’re confident of a big win for them.
