Fantasy Football Gameweek 4 Preview, Hints and Tips

Fantasy Football tips

As we move into Gameweek 4 on Premier League Fantasy Football, there has been a lot of noise on Social Media around people already playing their wildcards – a decision that early is a bold move but our preview of GW4 below will give you some pointers for who to put in your team, and who to avoid.


Arsenal and Tottenham

The North London Derby could be an enticing fixture for attacking points from both sides. Following Tottenham’s shock defeat to Newcastle, many FPL managers will be looking to ditch their FPL assets, but Arsenal’s defence has looked anything but assured. Harry Kane’s (11.1m) record against Arsenal (9 goals in 9 league games) is worth noting. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (11m) has made a strong start to the season and should get plenty of chances with Dani Ceballos (5.6m) providing chances.



The Blues got their season up and running against Norwich and provided plenty of FPL consideration. Mason Mount (6.2m) scored for a second consecutive match and looks to be great value with his starting role looking safe. Tammy Abraham (7.1m) returned to the starting line up with a brace but left the field early once more. Olivier Giroud (6.9m) is a serious threat to his game time, but Lampard appears to favour the Englishman for now. Emerson (5.5m) continues to show promise from left back but is yet to register any attacking points or clean sheets, with Sheffield United up next that could change.


Manchester City

The Premier League champions host Brighton this week. Having scored in each of their three Premier League fixtures so far, Raheem Sterling (12.2m) and Sergio Aguero (12m) represent excellent captain choices this week. Gabriel Jesus’ (9.5m) injury means Aguero’s starting spot is all but guaranteed, with penalty duties further boosting his appeal. Kevin de Bruyne (9.7m) leads the way with four assists and his advanced role should yield further points against The Seagulls. David Silva (7.4m) returned to the starting XI with two assists and could be a cut-price option. In defence, Kyle Walker (6.0m) has had a positive start with surging overlaps and an assist to boot.


West Ham and Norwich

The Hammers are at home this week following their first win of the season at Watford. Sebastian Haller (7.4m) bagged his first two goals for the club in an impressive performance. Manuel Lanzini (6.5m)assisted for a second successive game, with Andriy Yarmolenko (5.9m) increasing game time making him a promising option. Having conceded eight goals in three games, Norwich have yet to impress defensively.

At the other end of the field, The Canaries have shown that they are capable of scoring against anyone. Teemu Pukki (6.9m) has scored against Liverpool, Newcastle and Chelsea and currently sits level with Sterling as the Premier League’s top scorer. Todd Cantwell (4.7m) has emerged as a solid option in midfield with his advanced position helping him to a goal and two assists. Emiliano Buendia (6.0m) has also recorded two assists and could add to that against a leaky Hammers defence.
