Our 5 Picks for Fantasy Five Ahead of Gameweek 3 of the PL Season

Leicester City vs Southampton: James Maddison - 7.5 Points

James Maddison will be looking to carry on his impressive start in the Premier League this weekend when Leicester faces Southampton at the King Power Stadium.

The 25-year-old managed to create and assist against Brentford on the opening weekend and even scored in the Foxes' 4-2 loss against Arsenal last weekend. In order to beat his target score, Maddison would likely have to get two goal contributions here unless the Foxes can keep a clean sheet.

Last season, the former Norwich City man managed 20 goal contributions in 35 matches and he will be looking to carry on his impressive form when he goes up against the Saints on Saturday.

Everton vs Nottingham Forest: James Tarkowski - 6.5 Points

Everton and Nottingham Forest go head to head at Goodison Park on the weekend, with the Toffees looking to earn their first win of the season.

James Tarkowski is the player that we have chosen here, as Everton’s opponents have only scored once in the Premier League in their first two matches - meaning that a clean sheet (four points) could boost his chances of beating his points target.

Meanwhile, the former Burnley man has 27 goal contributions across his career and could offer a threat at goal from set pieces. A goal for a defender counts as six points, whilst an assist is worth three points for any player.

Bournemouth vs Arsenal: Gabriel Martinelli - 8.5 Points

Bournemouth goes up against Arsenal in Saturday’s late kick off with the Gunners looking to continue their perfect start to the season.

Brazilian midfielder Gabriel Martinelli has had an excellent start to the season having scored against both Crystal Palace and Leicester City - goals count as five points for midfielders.

If the 21-year-old can get two-goal contributions against a Cherries side that shipped four goals against Manchester City last week, then he will likely beat his target score as the Gunners look strong in both attack and defence. Also, on top of this, a clean sheet is worth one point for a midfielder.

Leeds vs Chelsea: Kai Havertz - 6.5 Points

Kai Havertz is down as a striker on Fantasy Five, and the German will be looking to get off the mark this season when Chelsea travels to Elland Road on Sunday.

The former Bayer Leverkusen man managed 20 goal contributions last season, and yet again, Havertz will need to get two goal contributions in this match to beat 6.5 points as a goal is worth four points to a striker, on top of the fact that a forward doesn't get any points for a clean sheet.

Newcastle United vs Manchester City: Erling Haaland - 9.5 Points

The final player on this list comes in the shape of Manchester City striker Erling Haaland who faces a Newcastle side that have started the season in good fashion.

Haaland will most likely need to replicate the brace he scored on the opening weekend of the season against West Ham to beat his target score of 9.5 points, as a goal is worth four points to a striker, whilst an assist is worth just three.

The Norwegian will be determined to replicate his tally for Borussia Dortmund with Manchester City, having managed 86 goals and 23 assists in 89 games for the Black and Yellows.
