Which players are due a goal in Gameweek 5?

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 5.

Recent FPL goals

Some attackers are in great form over their last four matches:

However, others are shooting and getting in the right places without having either luck or end product. So let’s look at the players who have met the following criteria over their last four league appearances:

  • No more than one goal
  • At least 10 shots
  • At least two big chances
  • An expected goals (xG) tally of 1.20
  • An expected goal involvement (xGI) of 1.40

Due a goal in Gameweek 5

The many owners of Nicolas Jackson must feel frustrated right now. New to the Premier League, he is the best forward for in-box touches (33), third for attempts (15) and third for penalty area shots (14).

Arriving at Chelsea from Villarreal, his seven big chances are joint-most overall but all he has to show for it is one goal, three bookings and a spot as the league’s biggest xG underachiever (-2.03).

If he fails to produce at Bournemouth in Gameweek 4, expect some angry sales.

Ranked by xG

Meanwhile, Man United duo Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford have experienced a price drop in recent days. It seems a bit harsh. Penalty-taker Fernandes’ xGI is third-best and he’s ranked second for chances created (14), whilst Rashford has attacking returns from two consecutive matches. Also surprising are the inclusions of Matheus Cunha and Enzo Fernandez.

Elsewhere, goalless Ollie Watkins spurned three big chances at Burnley in Gameweek 3 but has at least been able to provide three assists for team-mates. Those wanting a 3-4-3 formation probably view Pape Sarr as the outstanding £4.5m midfield option, having already grabbed a goal and assist playing Angeball.

Everton’s start has been poor but Arnaut Danjuma could soon bring joy to supporters. He’s only started their last two matches but, of all players on under 320 minutes, he’s the best for both shots (14) and big chances (four).
