FPL GW5 Tips

Key notes for GW5

Let’s start with key notes for GW5 of Fantasy Premier League. We use xG and xA in our analysis. If you are not sure what those stats mean, read our article about expected goals.

Player notes

  • Mané has the most shots (22) and the highest xG (3.52) among all players this season so far. He is underperforming his stats, he could catch up with goals and assists soon
  • TAA has the highest xA (2.51) among all players this season so far. Worth the premium price. Could be on course to 200+ points season
  • Jimenez is very active, a lot of shots (13), key passes (12), but ONLY 1 shot on target.
  • Traore is underperforming his stats as well.
  • Semedo very active too, 0.86 xG and 0.21 xA – he should have had one attacking return so far based on these stats
  • Marcal accumulated only 0.06 xA this season so far. Could be a trap. 
  • Gallagher boosts his FPL appeal with some good stats – 10 shots, 2.6 xG and 1.42 xA. Basically, he should have had even one more attacking return. Could be a real deal, but we would wait few more fixtures.
  • Mount 3rd for xA. Could be a great FPL asset when Chelsea fixtures turn green
  • Pogba 7 assists from 1.25 xA. Could be a trap.

Team notes

  • Wolves have an outstanding run of fixtures and great stats
  • Leeds has an amazing run of fixtures. Bamford + Raphinha double up could be a good way to go for the next couple of weeks
  • Worst defenses: Leeds, Newcastle, and Arsenal (in that order) conceded the most xG this season
  • Best defenses: City, Brentford, Liverpool conceded the fewest xG this season
  • Worst attacks: Watford, Leicester and Norwich accumulated the fewest xG this season
  • Best attacks: City, Liverpool, Man United accumulated highest xG this season
