The International Break has provided plenty of reflection for the Gameweek 5 Preview.
Which targets from Chelsea should be under consideration for their upcoming schedule of games?
Adam Hopcroft provides the longer term form view for our fantasy assets in the Gameweek 5 preview. There’s no arguing with Aguero’s output, he beats all the other premium options.
2019 Goals⚽️& Assists🅰️in PL
🔵Aguero Played 21 – 18⚽️4🅰️
🔴Mane P22 – 16⚽️1🅰️
🦊Vardy P22 – 15⚽️3🅰️
🔵Sterling P21 – 13⚽️4🅰️
🍷 Barnes P22 – 13⚽️1🅰️
🔴Salah P22 – 12⚽️3🅰️
🔴Aubameyang P20 – 12⚽️2🅰️
Ageuro – over-looked?
Barnes – excellent value
Salah – "essential" ????

Tammy Abraham is one of the most transferred in players and in this informative thread by Smarter Scout, there’s some great statistical analysis. Is this his season?
THREAD: Tammy Abraham 🏴🇳🇬
He's a smarterscout young prospect who's already a veteran. After a big 2016-17 season for @BristolCity, he had a sophomore slump at @SwansOfficial and has been working his way back ever since. But this could be his breakout season… why? (1/3)#FPL pic.twitter.com/s5UwYO53ZV

In an informative thread, Tom Campbell reveals his takeaways for the Gameweek 5 preview. Ederson is leading the keepers and Daniel James has some interesting underlying statistics.
Gameweeks 1 through 4 observations & takeaways. A thread. 👍🏼 #FPL

Mid-priced forwards are in great form and popular selections going forward. Stranger takes a look at which three are the ones to own over the course of the next few weeks.
Crunching numbers of selected forwards for my WC. Use wisely if you have too.

James and Mount are the enablers in midfield but it’s difficult to split this pair. It’s form or fixtures here, but European competitions could spell trouble.
James vs Mount
Price: £6.1 v £6.4
Pts: 21 v 22
Shots: 11 v 14
SitB: 9 v 5
SotB: 2 v 9
SoT: 6 v 7
Goals: 3 v 2
🔹James cheaper + slightly better stats
🔹James shoots more in box (Mount more outside)
🔹United better fixtures
🔹Both will be rotated now with CL/EL though.#FPL

Useful for wildcards, Joe from Fantasy Football Scout considers how double ups can provide differentials. Manchester City attacking double ups are reaping the points.
Doubling up on players can create a differential in itself and be highly lucrative
Here’s some of this season’s best so far

Kevin De Bruyne is the more budget friendly choice from the City attack and is on FPL Prince’s must have list. Trent Alexander-Arnold is also posting impressive statistics.
There’s two must have players in the game right now for me:
1. KDB 👕
🔵 Assist in every game this season
🔵 1 goal today
🔵 Oustanding Form
2. TAA 🔴
🔴 3 assists in 4 games
🔴 High chance creation
🔴 On set peices
Who’s your 2 must haves? 🌟 #FPL

Pukki has suffered his first blank of the season and Stats Bomb have crunched the numbers on his capabilities going forwards. Can he grab any returns when Manchester City visit Carrow Road?

FPL TBC considers Mason Mount’s potential for our fantasy squads. His underlying statistics are good and there’s great fixtures in the long-term too.
MASON MOUNT THREAD:
Lampard’s golden boy is priced at just £6.4 million and owned by over 19.5% of players. The low value, high scoring midfielder has already gathered 22 points making him a must have for many managers.#FPL #FPLCommunity pic.twitter.com/lipFmHiOMl
