Manchester City players are hugely popular in the Gameweek 5 tips.
Their fixture away at Norwich could provide big points for the likes of Kevin De Bruyne.

Selecting the right Liverpool attackers is almost as challenging as the Manchester City conundrum. Lateriser provides some interesting analysis in his latest thread.
There is a lot of fear associated with Salah and rightly so. But Mo 2018/19 was very different to Mo 2017/18 and the same goes for Mane. This was brought to my attention by @SkontoRigga in his excellent peace pre-season…..

FPL Prince has all the value analysis after four games. Defenders dominate, with a pair of in form forwards too. That man Kevin De Bruyne is also in the mix.

🔴Lundstram – Listed as a defender
🔵 Digne – 3 returns in 4 games

Neil Murray has spoken widely regarding formation and strategy. It may be that managers are moving cash higher up the pitch, but the fundamentals of FPL remain the same.
0) 5 at the back? 3 up front? Many have put forward the "best" FPL strategy.
Yet, the best FPL strategy isn't a tactical one, I believe it's a philosophical one.
Here's my thoughts on the ultimate FPL strategy, the one strategy to rule them all:

Could it be time for a Burnley triple up? Form and fixtures converge for Barnes and Pope remains popular in defence. What about their other assets?
Burnley (Super Burnley) have a proper lush run of upcoming #FPL fixtures (bha NOR avl EVE). Lots of you are on the Barnes Train or the Pope mobile but are there other options?
Therell be stats and average positions, well laugh together and cry when thinking about Chris Wood
