Gameweek 4 what to expect

When deciding what transfers to make each week it is important for FPL managers to look ahead to the next fixtures. Here we take a look at what to expect from Gameweek 4. We use the Official Premier League website to help us with this.

Taking into account team and players form ahead of their next fixture can be really useful to FPL managers. Using previous head to head, underlying data and form equips us with even more information to make big decisions within our FPL teams. Here we assess what to expect from Gameweek 4, and how looking at that can assist our planning moving forward.
