We are back with our FPL ones to watch after what seemed like an eternity due to the international break. Thank heavens that’s over and we can get back to the cut and thrust of Premier League action.
Our gameweek four selections produced mixed results, so here are the players who we believe will be the ones to watch in gameweek five of FPL:
Rui Patricio (Wolves, £4.5million)
The Portuguese international goalkeeper has endured a difficult start to life in the Premier League so far. In fact, the former Sporting goalkeeper has kept just one clean sheet in his four top-flight appearances so far for the side from the Midlands.
However, that one clean sheet was last time out in a 1-0 win at West Ham. At £4.5million with a home game against Burnley, he seems like an attractive option in his price range.
He could prove to be an ideal goalkeeper to rotate with Watford number one if your strategy is to use two cheaper goalkeepers in rotation.
Aymeric Laporte (Manchester City, £5.5million)
The France international has been an ever-present this season in the City defence, despite major rotation by Citizens boss Pep Guardiola. At £5.5million he is also a cheap way into the City defence, who last season enjoyed the strongest defensive record in the top-flight.
City have looked vulnerable at the back at times, likely due to that aforementioned rotation from Guardiola. However, it seems that Laporte may be one of the Catalan bosses preferred starters, which means he could prove a valuable asset in the next few months.
Demarai Gray (Leicester, £5.5million)
The Leicester winger received a call-up to the full England squad for the recent friendly against Switzerland, which shows his promise. Despite flashes of his ability, Gray has not lived up to his potential.
The summer exit of the Riyad Mahrez has given Gray more opportunities. In fact, the youngster has played 75 minutes or more in all Leicester’s top-flight games this season.
The absence of Jamie Vardy through suspension saw Gray move into a more central attacking role. He will move back to his wide position for Saturday’s visit to Bournemouth, who struggle to keep clean sheets.
At £5.5million, Gray looks like a good alternative to his more fancied teammate James Maddison, especially as the Foxes have some very favourable fixtures.
Callum Wilson (Bournemouth, £6.2million)
Wilson has threatened to break out in the Premier League for a long time. However, some terrible luck with injuries have hampered his development. The 26-year-old has started this season in good form, though.
This season the former Coventry star has already produced two goals and three assists in a Bournemouth team that loves to attack under Eddie Howe. Like Leicester, the Cherries look to have some plum fixtures in the next few weeks, which could make Wilson a must-have asset over the next few weeks.
The visit of travel sick Leicester to the Vitality Stadium this weekend offers Wilson a good chance to add to his points tally. The Foxes have suffered defeat in four of their last five games on their travels in the top-flight.
