Pick five Premier League players to beat their Fantasy5 ‘points target’ and you could win a prize of up to £10,000.
We love alternative challenges at Fantasy Football Community, so we really enjoy the Fantasy5 game. It’s a free-to-play challenge, where each week you select a player from five matches who you back to beat their designated ‘points target’. It follows the exact same scoring system as FPL but without bonus points.
Get all five correct and you get a split of the £10,000 jackpot prize. Full terms and conditions are here.
In the meantime, we attempt to suggest five successful picks.
Gameweek 34 Fantasy5 picks
- Man City vs Watford
- Leicester vs Aston Villa
- Brentford vs Tottenham
- Chelsea vs West Ham
- Liverpool vs Everton
Deadline is 15:00 (GMT) on Saturday 23 April.
One of last week’s picks worked out well, with Bruno Guimaraes scoring twice against Leicester to smash his 6.5 points target. Elsewhere, it was a shame to see Ivan Toney and Jadon Sancho fail to produce versus Watford and Norwich respectively.
With end-of-season rotation on the mind, this week’s five picks were very difficult to settle on. Man City played a strong XI on Wednesday night and follow this Watford clash by facing Real Madrid. Therefore, the seven-minute cameo of Gabriel Jesus (6.5) suggests he starts this time, hoping to replicate the 8-0 mauling from their last Etihad meeting.
Brendan Rodgers has indeed been managing the minutes of key players, as their Europa Conference League semi-finals take priority. So don’t be surprised to see James Maddison and Harvey Barnes rested again, like last week’s trip to Newcastle. Let’s take a wild punt on Ayoze Perez to score once, which defeats his 6.5 target.
Against his former club, Christian Eriksen (6.5) is backed to score against Spurs, whose own players have very high targets – Harry Kane (9.5), Son Heung-min (8.5) and Dejan Kulusevski (7.5). The Bees have won five of their last six outings.
As Kai Havertz and Mason Mount have been priced at 8.5 and 9.5, Timo Werner (6.5) has a chance to score in his third successive match. The Blues host West Ham, hoping to halt their terrible home recent form of losing 4-1 and 4-2.
Finally, Virgil van Dijk (6.5) will expect to keep a clean sheet against Everton. Having delivered five attacking returns this season, he has strong potential to deliver at both ends.
