Which players are due a goal in Gameweek 4?

Picking out the players that look likely to score in an FPL gameweek is a big part of management. Using recent underlying stats from the Fantasy Football Scout, we assess which players are due a goal in Gameweek 4.

Recent FPL goals

Some players had a great third weekend:

However, others are shooting and getting in the right places without having either luck or end product.

Without the usual four-match sample size of ‘Due a Goal’ articles, here we’ll instead look at the expected goals (xG) stats.

Due a goal in Gameweek 4

Managers who had kept faith in Bruno Fernandes and Nicolas Jackson were finally rewarded with returns in Gameweek 3. Man United’s midfielder had blanked twice but led the way for non-penalty expected goal involvements (NPxGI), whilst Chelsea’s new forward had a 1.34 xG from two outings.

Yet it turns out that Jackson’s team-mate Raheem Sterling was the optimum Chelsea attacker. As one of three players to score twice, he also assisted another and brought in 19 points.

Strangely, the defender who bagged two goals – Matty Cash – still wasn’t ranked as one of the biggest overachievers, as his six shots and five inside the box accumulated an xG of 1.29.

Other defenders to score included Joachim Andersen and Jayden Bogle, whilst cheap £5.0m forward Lyle Foster has started both of Burnley’s matches. He netted against Aston Villa.

Meanwhile, Erling Haaland’s missed penalty shows that he really could be a human being. Both he and Julian Alvarez delivered a Gameweek-high of eight shots, with the Norwegian also in front for big chances (four). A goal eventually arrived for him in the second half.

Newcastle’s Miguel Almiron saw two of his six shots hit the woodwork, alongside a simple chance missed from close range. Brighton’s Evan Ferguson was joint-top with four attempts on target, whilst those without Ollie Watkins should feel very lucky to have escaped with just one assist. Five shots, three big chances and an xG of 0.91.
