The Hard Tackle brings to you the suggestions for potential Fantasy Premier League picks as the fifth gameweek of the Premier League commences.
THT Squad Fourth Gameweek Points: 38 Points
A decent tally considering our captain did not start and Sadio Mane received a red card. Let’s get down to brass tacks, with the picks for the current gameweek.
Coutinho (LIV) – MID – £8.8
With Sadio Mane out, Coutinho will now be certain to start the game against Burnley and more. Even when the attacker returns, Coutinho is unlikely to be dropped and this might be the opportune time to bring the Brazilian in your squad. Expect the player to set about redeeming himself at Anfield, starting from the Saturday game against Burnley.
Jamaal Lascelles (NEW) – DEF – £4.5
The defender was the unlikely hero last gameweek and managed to rope in a mammoth 15 points for the users who had him in their squads. Nevertheless, with Rafa Benitez’s side starting to gather points, the defender will surely keep some clean sheets in the process.
Jamie Vardy (LEI) – FWD – £8.5
Jamie Vardy looks to be coming back to his best. And against a Huddersfield side that has only recently tasted their first Premier League defeat, the player could be unleashed. Expect Vardy to give you points in the coming gameweeks nonetheless and is a good pick overall.
Ben Foster (WBA) – GK – £4.5
While West Brom succumbed to a shock defeat last week to Brighton, Tony Pulis is likely to get his players to go back to basics. And even in general, the club is set to keep several clean sheets over the course of the season.Value for money.
Harry Kane (TOT) – FWD – £12.4
This is a reminder for users that do not have the player in their squads, yet. Harry Kane is in sublime form and his displays against Everton and Dortmund clearly show he is hungry to get among the goals. As Swansea come to visit, Kane could easily hit a brace for the third match in a row.
We would recommend captaining Harry Kane or Jamie Vardy depending on the composition of your squads.
