The big news last weekend was the injury to Son Heung-Min. The prognosis remains positive for a speedy return, but for those fantasy managers compelled to sell the South Korean anyway, FPL Swede reveals his replacements in this latest Twitter thread.

There’s an elite pool of players who have managed to deliver fantasy returns in all of their opening fixtures. That’s three consecutive returns for many, or two for the players from those sides who didn’t have a fixture in Blank Gameweek 1. Fantasy Football Pundits bring the key statistics.
1️⃣2️⃣ players have returned in every game so far this season:

One defensive duo at the forefront of our minds for yet another season is the Liverpool full-backs: Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson. The cheaper Scotsman has impressed most to date, but perhaps now the conversation needs to be on owning both?

It’s a poor Leeds defence that has captured many fantasy managers imaginations ahead of the FPL Gameweek 4 tips, with Bakar in particular tipping our favoured Manchester City attackers to deliver a big performance this weekend. Could they earn the armband?
Leeds despite their recent clean sheet are still second worst for xGc and big chances conceded. Villa have played a game less but fare best in the league for the same two stats. Pep will want a reaction, once bitten twice shy but I think I might captain a City player again #FPL

Many transfers this week are entered around attacking assets, with many managers making the move away from a disappointing Timo Werner. Raul Jimenez is among the list of replacements and it’s a compelling case when considering the Fantasy Football Hub player comparison chart.

This week I joined Joe and Az on the Fantasy Football Scout Scoutcast to discuss all things FPL Gameweek 4 tips, including fixtures. It was no surprise to see assets from Wolves and Leicester City dominate the discussion given their kind upcoming run.

Finally, Will from Fantasy Football Hub reveals his lineup for the Gameweek over on YouTube. One big issue in his side is an underperforming forward in Timo Werner with one hot favourite set to replace him.
