FPL Gameweek 5 Tips

If you’re curious about what Squawka Score is and how it operates, you can find a comprehensive explanation via this link. Using Squawka Score, we’ve selected our Gameweek 5 squad, taking into consideration the upcoming fixtures. While we don’t expect you to completely overhaul your team (unless you’re an early wildcard user), we’ve put together a 15-man squad within a £100m budget, featuring players you should contemplate for early transfers. Here’s a glimpse: Emiliano Martinez, Aston Villa FPL price: £4.9m Squawka Score: 53% Martinez is one of the few goalkeepers who have earned double points in FPL this season. With an upcoming “easier” fixture against Crystal Palace, he has the potential to further boost his point tally. Martinez has amassed a significant portion of his points through an impressive 11 saves in four matches, reaffirming his value in FPL teams.

Malo Gusto, Chelsea FPL price: £4.2m Squawka Score: N/A Gusto likely wasn’t on many FPL radars at the start of the season, but an injury to Reece James has thrust the Frenchman into the spotlight, making him one of the most transferred-in players this season. His impressive tally of 18 points in four games, despite starting only three of them, makes him a compelling option among low-priced defenders.

William Saliba, Arsenal FPL price: £5.2m Squawka Score: 32% While Arsenal’s defensive performances have been scrutinized this season, Saliba has been a consistent presence. The center-back has averaged four points per game, placing him among the top 25 defenders so far. With two favorable fixtures in the next three weeks, now could be an opportune time to acquire the Arsenal defender.

Destiny Udogie, Spurs FPL price: £4.7m Squawka Score: N/A Few players have adapted to Ange-ball as impressively as Udogie. He has accumulated 23 points in four games, with two assists and two clean sheets, making him one of the most sought-after assets in FPL this season. Facing Sheffield United in the upcoming match could provide another opportunity for him to amass significant points.
