There’s plenty of community tips in the Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 5 Preview.
Fresh from the International Break, there’s big decisions to be made: with Mo Salah the hot topic for the Gameweek 5 preview.
The international break traditionally throws up lots of injuries. It looks to be good news for Zaha owners according to Ben Dinnery: he’s in contention for the Gameweek 5 preview, with a nice run of favourable fixtures ahead.
Wilfried Zaha looks set to provide Crystal Palace with a welcome boost following a return to training. The Eagles star missed the home defeat to Southampton due to a groin problem but is expected to be back for the trip to Huddersfield on Saturday. #CPFC

Jules Breach joined the FPL Wildcats Gameweek 5 preview video earlier this break. There’s plenty of wildcard discussion and possible transfers from the team. Is now the ideal time to activate the wildcard?

On the topic of wildcards, FPL Hints has shared a variety of different drafts on Twitter over the break. His latest formation involves a 3-4-3, with some big priced players making the cut: Mo Salah takes up a big chunk of the budget.

The Mo Salah conundrum was one of the hot topics in the latest Fantasy Football surgery podcast. It’s tricky to find the balance when managers are wanting to also load up on premium fullbacks who have started the season with a bang.

Adam Hopcroft takes a look at goal conversion rates for the Gameweek 5 preview. While Mane and Moura have both had an excellent start to the season, long-term statistics suggest their high conversion rates are unsustainable across a larger sample.
Goal conversion rates for all premier league games
Not much to seperate them but suggests that a conversion rate 30%+ probably isnt sustainable for the season
Mane and Moura are at 40 and 50% respectively

The budget strikers are outscoring their premium counterparts right now, with 5 players under 7 million appearing in this list of top 10 strikers. Let’s Talk FPL’s Andy suggests that budget forwards should be considered in your team shape.

If your FPL Wildcard is active, then the rotation pairings provided by FPL Planet will be very helpful. Consider some of these options as either an attacking or defensive rotation, to free up funds elsewhere for the important premium players.
Consider these rotational pairings
🛒 Brighton & Newcastle
🛒 Bournemouth & Crystal Palace
🛒 Burnley & Huddersfield
🛒 Cardiff & Watford
🛒 Leicester & Wolves
🛒 Southampton & West Ham

Whether or not your wildcard is active, FPL TV has great discussion on whether you should keep or sell some popular assets. David De Gea has just one clean sheet in four games, but the fixtures are taking a turn for the better.
