Goal projections for GW5 Fantasy Premier League contests
We described Gameweek 4 as a really even Premier League slate, with little to choose between all of the teams in terms of match-up supremacy. The same cannot be said in Gameweek 5, with a number of strong favorites on show.
Manchester City top the list and Kelechi Iheanacho is sure to be a popular choice following his goal in the Manchester derby. He also boasts a better goals per minute ratio than the suspended Sergio Agüero. However, Pep Guardiola’s troops may not have the ideal preparation prior to the visit of Bournemouth, after their Champions League tie with Borussia Mönchengladbach was postponed for 24 hours, due to adverse weather conditions in Manchester.
Tottenham Hotspur may be the team to focus on, when they entertain a struggling Sunderland side. Harry Kane ended his goal drought in the thumping win at Stoke City, while Dele Alli highlighted why he may be a better option than Wayne Rooney for Sam Allardyce in the England number 10 role.
Southampton, Leicester City, Arsenal, Manchester United and Everton are all strong favourites as well, with the latter putting in a very impressive second half performance at the Stadium of Light on Monday, capped off by a wonderful 12 minute hat-trick from Romelu Lukaku that ended his personal 11-game Premier League drought.
There’s a treat in store on Friday evening, when Chelsea host Liverpool at Stamford Bridge but remember that this means there will be an early deadline for entries in a number of daily fantasy contests, as well as the official Fantasy Premier League game, so bear that in mind!
