FPL LOGO and Guedes of Wolves

Fantasy Premier League 22-23 is now in full swing, so here we have our tips for Game Week 5.

Game week 4 provided us with some tasty fixtures, which certainly racked up some astounding points in FPL. If you had Liverpool players, you were certainly in for a great game week, unless that player was in fact usually the most prolific, Mohamed Salah – who remarkably blanked in a 9-0 victory over Bournemouth.

Perhaps you captained Erling Haaland, whose hat-trick propelled you towards a mightily impressive point total. However your week went, there’s always the next game week to look forward to – which is imminent with game week 5 taking place midweek for the first time this season.

So, with this – here are our tips for Fantasy Premier League 22/23 game week 5.

Thursday 1st September 2022

  • Leicester vs Manchester United: 8:00 pm

Some very interesting games to keep an eye on in regards to FPL this week. Manchester City take on a newly promoted Forest side who have made a whopping 19 seasons thus far this summer, but will it be enough to stop the in-form Haaland? He’s a great shout for your captaincy this week as he’s already proven he guarantees goals.

A team to keep an eye on now will definitely be Wolves after their decent performance last weekend, they now play a Bournemouth side who look way below the quality of the league this year – expect a few Wolves players to accumulate points in that one.

You may also want to think about bringing in a few Manchester United players. They seem to have found their feet now and have some decent names that are reasonably cheap you could bring in.


Our top two picks for FPL Game Week 5

Providing you still have some free transfers at your disposal, here are our top two picks for game week 5 in Fantasy Premier League 22/23.


Marcus Rashford

  • Position: Midfielder
  • Club: Manchester United
  • Price: £6.3 Million
  • GW5 Opponent: Leicester (A)

It appears Marcus Rashford may be finding back some of the form that we all know he can achieve. He is a very cheap midfield option that plays in the forward line for Manchester United. He could bag a few in the coming weeks.


Gancalo Guedes

  • Position: Midfielder
  • Club: Wolves
  • Price: £6.0 Million
  • GW5 Opponent: Bournemouth (A)

This one makes sense this week, given the crisis at Bournemouth. Guedes has looked lively in his openers for Wolves and could break his duct in game week 5. Then after a goal, he could go from strength to strength.
