Fantasy Premier League: 7 players to look at for GW5, including Havertz & Foden

FPL players, Kai Havertz needs to be in your plans!

The international break is finally over and Premier League fixtures will be returning to our television screens tomorrow afternoon.

An exciting weekend of action in the English top-flight kicks off with Everton versus Liverpool at 12:30, with Arsenal's trip to Manchester City going live five hours later in a feast of football.

Sunday's big game sees West Ham travel to Tottenham for a feisty London derby, Leeds and Wolves signing off gameweek five on the Monday Night Football.

With so much football awaiting us, it's time to start prepping those Fantasy Premier League teams following a busy international schedule.

Given many players' exploits across the globe, the seven players we advise you to consider bringing in for GW5 all remained with their respective clubs over the break.

The Premier League trophy

Let's take a look at the septet...

George Baldock vs Fulham (H) - £5.4m

Sheffield United have endured a torrid start to the season, losing their opening four games.

But there were positive signs in the 2-1 defeat at Arsenal and we're backing Chris Wilder's team to click into gear against misfiring Fulham.

Baldock possesses serious clean sheet potential this week and he should also have a lot to say going forward against Scott Parker's leaky defence.

Rhian Brewtser vs Fulham (H) - £4.5m

We really fancy Sheffield United to do the business on Sunday afternoon.

Brewster is all set to make his first start for the club after completing his £23.5m move from Liverpool, the 20-year-old scoring 11 goals in 22 games on loan at Swansea last season. 

We're backing the Englishman to fire on all cylinders from the get-go with the Blades and at £4.5m, you won't find a better bargain buy to free up funds for pricy midfielders.

Callum Wilson vs Manchester United (H) - £6.5m

If you're after a cut-price striker this weekend and Brewster doesn't tickle your fancy, Wilson is the way to go.

United's defence - Harry Maguire in particular - has been susceptible all season and the Newcastle striker arrives on the back of four goals and one assist in his first four league games for the Magpies.

Wilson is also the club's designated penalty taker, which makes him even more of a must-have in a Premier League campaign that has been riddled with spot-kicks.

Heung-min Son vs West Ham (H) - £9.1m

With South Korea not playing during the international break, West Ham face the prospect of trying to nullify a well-rested Son, a player with six goals already this FPL season.

The Hammers may have dazzled against Wolves and Leicester, but Jose Mourinho's in-form Spurs are a different kettle of fish right now.

Son's potential at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is so great this weekend that we're backing him as our captain - cue a yellow card, no goal contributions and a 59th minute substitution...

Ollie Watkins vs Leicester (A) - £5.9m

So if you've turned your nose up at both Brewster AND Wilson - which is just foolish to be honest - but are still craving a low-cost striker, then look no further than Watkins.

Fresh from a hat-trick in the 7-2 win over Liverpool two weeks ago and injury-free from no international football, Watkins will have Leicester's suspect defence in his crosshairs.

For £5.9m, you really can't go wrong.

Phil Foden vs Arsenal (H) - £6.6m

Kevin De Bruyne has been ruled out of the Arsenal game after picking up an injury on international duty and that could pave the way for Foden to thrive once again at the Etihad.

Arsenal are a strong defensive unit under Mikel Arteta, but this is Manchester City and they will create a plethora of chances on Saturday evening.

A fresh, rejuvenated Foden can both create and finish off those opportunities in De Bruyne's absence, so you'd be a fool not to part ways with £6.6m for his services.

Kai Havertz vs Southampton (H) - £8.4m

The second and last midfield big-hitter we advise FPL players to look at bringing in after freeing up some funds with our cheaper striking options.

Havertz impressed in Chelsea's 4-0 win over Crystal Palace last time out and starred for Germany against both Turkey and Switzerland during the international break.

He now looks ready to be a huge FPL asset, so we're backing the 21-year-old to deliver goals and assists versus the Saints. Get Timo Werner out and Havertz in!
