3 in, 3 Out: Fantasy Football Tips for Gameweek 4

Goalscorer Tips

RONALDO TO SCORE ANYTIME AGAINST NEWCASTLE (WAS 1/2) @ 2/1

Transfer In: Ferran Torres

After VAR ruled out Ferran Torres’ strike against Norwich City in Gameweek 3, it didn’t take the Spanish international long to open his account for the season, netting twice in Manchester City’s emphatic 5-0 win over Arsenal.

Deciding against trying to sign a centre-forward after giving up on their pursuit of Harry Kane, it appears Torres will lead the line for the reigning champions, with Gabriel Jesus adopting a role out of wide.

Granted, Torres could fall victim to Pep Guardiola’s roulette-style team selection throughout the course of the season, yet the 21-year-old will likely play enough minutes to make transferring him in worthwhile.

Transfer in: Bukayo Saka

Whisper it, but Arsenal may finally be on the way up. After a torrid start to the season for the Gunners, the Premier League’s bottom place club could finally pick up their first win of the campaign when Norwich travel to the Emirates Stadium this weekend.

If Mikel Arteta’s side are to improve their fortunes, Bukayo Saka will be integral to their hopes and the 20-year-old will return to north London on the back of a stellar international break.

Netting his first competitive international goal in England’s 4-0 victory over Andorra, don’t bet against Saka adding to his goals tally in Gameweek 4.

Transfer In: Fernando Marçal

Having now negotiated a difficult start to the season, new Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Bruno Lage can look forward to an easier run of fixtures, with defender Fernando Marçal looking like a key player for their setup.

Playing in all three matches so far, the Brazilian wing-back has shown signs of promise and could turn out to be a key contributor to a Wolves side starved of goals so far. Furthermore, it’s unlikely he’ll drop too many points for conceding, as Wolves are yet to lose a game by more than a one-goal margin this campaign.

A double-header against newly-promoted sides Watford and Brentford await the Midlands club in their next two fixtures, before a visit to early-season strugglers Southampton to finish the month.

transfer in BONUS: Cristiano Ronaldo

It's Cristiano Ronaldo. Not just has he scored almost 800 career goals, he scored 66 Premier League goals in his final 101 appearances. No further explanation needed

Transfer Out: Bruno Fernandes

Despite starting the season in fine fashion, fantasy league cult-hero, Bruno Fernandes has seen his ownership percentage plummet since the arrival of Portugal teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.

After 14 penalty goals since arriving in Manchester two years ago, it is expected Fernandes will now hand over spot-kick duties to the Red’s new number seven, with the midfielder’s point-scoring opportunities much lower now Ronaldo is in the side.

Furthermore, the arrival of Romelu Lukaku has added yet another luxury pick to choose from and it looks as if Fernandes may turn out to be the fall guy for many fantasy managers.

Transfer Out: Emiliano Martínez

Only Edouard Mendy and eventual Golden Glove winner, Ederson kept more clean sheets than Emiliano Martínez during the 2020/21 campaign and the Aston Villa shot-stopper went into the season as many manager’s picks for the goalkeeper spot.

Relatively cheap compared to some of the big-six clubs’ counterparts, Martínez has impressed during his move to the West Midlands, but the 29-year-old looks set to miss Villa’s trip to Stamford Bridge due to quarantine protocols.

Martínez was one of the infamous four Argentine players who were involved in the postponement of La Albiceleste’s recent clash with rivals Brazil and the former Arsenal goalkeeper isn’t expected to be back until mid-September.

Transfer Out: Danny Ings

Since making the move from Southampton in the summer, Danny Ings has taken no time at all to settle at Villa, picking up two goals and an assist in his first three matches.

Yet, with a tricky couple of weeks ahead of Dean Smith’s side, including matches against Chelsea, Everton, United and Tottenham Hotspur, it may be a while before Ings finds himself amongst the goals once more.

At a relatively expensive price, managers might want to look at selling Ings to replace him with one of the more premium goalscorers in the game.
