Fantasy Premier League Tips Week 4
Hola Amigos from far and wide. The International break is over! And best of all the transfer window is closed! Coutinho is still a red. Alexis is still a gunner, and Arsenal fans are still probably pissed they didn’t land Thomas Lemar. Speaking of Arsenal fans – let’s roll into our three players you need to transfer for this week!
#1. Alexandre Lacazette:
If there was anything more predictable than Arsenal’s collapse at Anfield, it’s that they’d bounce back with what manager Arsene Wenger will undoubtedly describe as “a display of mental strength” by crushing Bournemouth at the Emirates. After starting Lacazette on the bench against Liverpool, the Wenger masterstroke of starting the club’s record signing will pay dividends . . . it’s the Frenchman’s time to feed on Cherries.
#2. Michail Antonio:
After three Premier League matches, are West Ham destined for relegation and Huddersfield the Champions League? That’s what we’re currently looking at in the table and Monday Night Football features the two trending clubs at London’s Olympic Stadium. The return of Andy Carroll could be the spark The Hammers need at home, and Michail Antonio will either record an assist or get on the end of a FLICK ON from the big man.
#3. Maya Yoshida:
Is your defense struggling because it turns out you should’ve spent more than 30 seconds building your entire backline? Ours too. Grab Southampton’s Maya Yoshida, who’ll anchor a clean sheet for the Saints against Watford and then move to Liverpool in January for $75 million.
1 Player That Needs To GTFO
The close of the window wasn’t kind to Riyad Mahrez, whose desire for a transfer wasn’t matched by any potential suitors. As Dr. Steve Brule would say, “Orgies are not too much fun if no one wants to do it with you.” With Chelsea coming to the King Power, you could forgive Mahrez for ghosting.
Brace yourselves . . . we’re about to drop the knowledge bomb of the weekend: Manchester United’s ride on the proverbial Reading Rainbow comes to an illiterate halt against Stoke City at the Britannia, as 80th minute substitute Peter Crouch rises highest on a set piece to continue his slow and steady assault on Alan Shearer’s EPL goalscoring record. Talk about a hot take.
That’s it for this week. Remember to comment with your fantasy questions. And our piece of advice for the weeked, if you do somehow get up to watch Liverpool Man City, you won’t regret it. We expect fireworks.
