It’s packed with tweets, articles, videos and podcasts with the Fantasy Football Tips for Gameweek 5.
The big talking point for FPL Gameweek 5 after the performances from Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku last weekend, is whether we should be fitting both of them in our squads. It’s the hot topic of the Who Got The Assist? podcast.

Wolves are one of the most popular teams in the game right now with a great run of upcoming fixtures. With both attackers and defenders on the radar, FPL Swede provides his excellent analysis.
Wolves breakdown analysis (THREAD)
As a neutral fan of the Premier League, Wolves is the team that I have enjoyed watching the most so far. Lage has made a very significant impact in a very short amount of time which has led to plenty of FPL options in various positions ⤵️ pic.twitter.com/XfQ0yvavH9

Connor Gallagher has impressed so far and his underlying statistics suggest that his points returns are sustainable. He’s a great enabler and is seeing plenty of transfers in. FPL Strategy looks at the data.
Conor Gallagher (CRY) – worth consideration if u need a budget midfielder (5.5)
Points – xPts 23.3 (1st)
Assists – xA 1.3 (2nd)
Goals – xG 2.27 (1st)
Sitb – 7 (2nd)
Big Chances – 5 (1st)
His expected returns are close to his actual returns so his points this season are no fluke pic.twitter.com/NdqWMBffpa

Next up, stats guru Bakar pulls together a convincing argument for sticking with Trent Alexander-Arnold when looking to jump on board premium forwards. He has the best assist threat of the entire league.
(After 4 GWs)
*Trent on another level
*Pogba has 7 assists despite creating just 2 big chances with an xA of 1.31, unsustainable
*Shaw's numbers on the up, he's 2nd for big chances created too
