FPL Game Week 4 Tips - Chelsea and Bournemouth
Sponsored by Premier Punt
Yesterday we looked at the Liverpool and Man City fixtures to gleam some game week 4 tips from. Today we will be looking at Chelsea’s home fixture against Crystal Palace along with one other fixture that we have high hopes of goals in.
Before we get started, why not check out our game week 4 tips podcast below or subscribe to our Fantasy Premier League YouTube channel.
Game Week 4 should signal some sort of parity being restored in terms of points totals between the cheaper and more expensive players with 3 home games that could prove game changers in FPL.
Man City Vs. Watford
Liverpool Vs. West Ham
Chelsea Vs. Crystal Palace
In addition to these we also think that the other key game will be between Bournemouth and Leicester.
Chelsea Vs. Crystal Palace
Chelsea have looked far from solid at the back so far this season with 2 red cards from 3 games and a total of 7 goals conceded in that time. Whilst this is uncharacteristically Chelsea-like, we have seen enough quality going forward to have faith in a few Chelsea goals being scored against a team managed by the man that many Palace fans call Pardinho (for his Brazilian attacking style with little regard for defence) and for this reason we can see a Chelsea win with both teams to score.
Pedro looked a class act on his debut and there is nothing to suggest that he won’t give us another masterclass here, but the real threat has to be Diego Costa who looked menacing at West Brom and turned up with a well taken goal and a welcome assist. Pedro stole the headlines, but we expect Costa to have the consistency as the season progresses.
One word on Pedro, his price will be going up as over 300,000 managers have already transferred him in to their teams, BUT… his price won’t rise until around 2am Sunday morning at least – all new players are locked in for 7 days so theoretically you could bring him in after the Palace game without the risk of him getting injured (in a match at least).
Having said this, our top picks for this game are Pedro and Costa – so if you get him in without a points hit then he is a great option… perhaps at the expense of Eden Hazard who has had a very quiet start to the season.
Bournemouth Vs. Leicester
Both of these teams will be thinking they can take all 3 points from this game and if we had to put our money on either then we would probably go for Leicester given the start they have made. But Bournemouth have been no pushovers either – unlucky not to at least get a point at Liverpool and with a good away win last week at West Ham and a Calum Wilson hat-trick it is easy to see why so many managers have gone for him.
For Leicester, we simply cannot ignore Mahrez any longer and with his price already having risen to £6m if you do ignore him for much longer then you will be kicking yourself. Both of these teams have good fixtures over the next 3 game weeks with Bournemouth having the slightly easier ones. Our top tip for this week is to drop the striker in your team that is underperforming – especially if you have Wayne Rooney like we did in our podcast team. Bring in Wilson and then look to bring in Pedro or Coutinho next week.
Whatever you do – make sure you have at least one of these players in your team as we have to act on form, but we like to act on fixtures also – here – we have both!
