Fantasy Premier League 2019/20 Gameweek 5: Three in, three out

Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 5 kicks off on Saturday the 14th of September at 12:30 pm UK time, when Liverpool play host to Newcastle United.

Gameweek 5 will end on Monday the 16th of September, with West Ham traveling to Aston Villa.

So, all of your transfers for GW5 need to be done by 11:30 am UK time on Saturday.

But if you are struggling to choose who to sign and who to sell this week, here are some tips.

Three in including Man City midfielder

Kevin De Bruyne (9.8)

Kevin De Bruyne has been in fine form since the start of the 2019/20 campaign.

KDB was pretty average throughout 2018/19, partly because of his injury problems.

But this season he looks back to his best for Manchester City.

In City’s opening four PL games of the season, De Bruyne has already racked up five assists and scored one goal.

That makes him the third best midfielder on FPL, only behind Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and Man City teammate, Raheem Sterling.

Furthermore, Manchester City are taking on Norwich this weekend.

Given the Citizens are the top scorers in the PL so far this season and Norwich have conceded the most goals in the English top-flight, a high scoring City victory looks very likely.

Ashley Barnes (6.7)

The second player you may wish to consider signing for game week five is Burnley forward, Ashley Barnes.

Barnes will cost you just 6.7 but despite his small price tag, he has been delivering so far this campaign.

In the Clarets opening four games of the PL season, Barnes has already found the back of the net four times.

Burnley also have a fairly favourable tie this weekend against a Brighton side who have not won a league game since the opening weekend.

Sean Dyche’s side are also taking on Norwich the game week after, which should present another good opportunity for Barnes to earn some points.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (11.0)

The final player you may wish to consider signing this week is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Arsenal forward had a superb 2018/19, netting 22 goals in the Premier League.

Aubameyang has continued that good form into the 2019/20 season as well.

In four PL outings, Aubameyang has scored three and assisted one.

Arsenal are also taking on Watford in game week five.

While Watford have now sacked Javi Gracia, their recent form has been very poor as they have earned just one point in the league so far this campaign.

Three out including Brighton midfielder

Leandro Trossard (6.0)

Leandro Trossard looked as though he could be a solid budget option for your FPL midfield this season.

After missing the Seagull’s opening game of the season, Trossard had been in decent form for Brighton, scoring his first goal vs West Ham.

However, Trossard has recently been on international duty with Belgium and is now injured.

Graham Potter would provide an update on Trossard in his pre-match press conference on Thursday.

But it doesn’t look good for the winger as Potter stated he may not be available again till after the next international break:

“It’s early stages with Leandro [Trossard] but he’s felt something in his groin – we’re probably looking at after the next international break before he’s available again.”

Willy Boly (5.0)

Wolves had an outstanding debut season back in the Premier League last campaign.

They finished 7th in the PL, qualifying for the Europa League.

So, seeing someone like Willy Boly priced at 5.0 may have seemed to some people, a good cheap defender to own.

However, Wolves are yet to win any of their first four league outings this season with Boly on just 16 points this campaign.

No idea why Willy Boly did that… 🤷‍♂️

Bernardo Silva (7.8)

Bernardo Silva had a very respectable 2018/19 with City.

So, at just 8.0, Silva may have been a very enticing purchase for some players.

However, Silva has hardly earned any points this season, 10 in three games as he didn’t feature for City vs West Ham.

As a result, Silva’s price has already dropped 0.2 due to people selling him on and you may wish to do the same, should you own the Man City midfielder.
