Five to like

Jonny Evans - £4.9m. As a unit, the Baggies back line has been outstanding so far having only conceded once in three Premier League games. A trip to Brighton on Saturday sounds like the ideal spot to make that three clean sheets out of four. I've identified the club captain because he's set to return to first team action following unsuccessful bids from Man City and Leicester. Expect the former Manchester United player to once more establish himself as the heartbeat of that defence. Only 0.6% teams have selected him, that seems very low. 

Álvaro Morata - £10.1m. I'm ready to jump aboard the Spanish striker train. In three games, twice he's put up double digit points with a goal and an assist apiece in GW1 and GW3. This week he'll face a Leicester team who have just lost Danny Drinkwater so you wonder how their midfield will cope. Would not be surprised at all if Morata finds his way on to the score sheet once more. 

Philippe Coutinho - £8.8m. I admit I'm going out on a limb a little bit on this one but hear me out. He's clearly fit having played for Brazil in the international break. With it being a big game, this seems like the type of match Jurgen Klopp will throw him straight into instead of waiting for a lower profile game. Firmino, Mane and Salah have been on fire so far this season but I don't see Coutinho being punished or having to wait his turn. At £8.8m he is under priced if he breaks back into the team so this is a chance to get him cheap.

Renato Sanches - £5.0m. In what was probably the most surprising move from the transfer window, Swansea City have secured the services of a legitimate talent for the season. For fantasy purposes he's listed at only £5.0m. We all know he's going to play a lot considering his talent. I don't expect a lot from the 20-year-old but as your fifth midfielder you would be pushed to find a better option. Newcastle at home this week helps as well.

Javier Hernández - £7.1m. I wrote about him in this spot for GW3 and the Hammers were pretty woeful up on the Tyne. Still this week they are back at home against Huddersfield in the Monday night game. He's still terrific value to score and with Andy Carroll expected to only make the bench, he'll start again and with the pressure his manager is under, expect a blistering performance from Bilic's men.

Five to dislike

Kieran Trippier - £5.4m. As we approached the start of the season, the early numbers had over 20% of teams having the Spurs right-back included. An injury in pre-season and his team signing Serge Aurier (£6.0m) to compete for his spot in the XI all adds up to worrying signs. Time to move on from the England defender.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - £6.0m. Having agitated for a move to Anfield, I'm still not sure where he fits into an impressive looking Liverpool line-up. If he becomes a regular fixture in the first team then at £6.0m he'd be a solid fourth midfielder. Until he establishes himself in that role though, it doesn't look like a good gamble and if you add in the fact it is Manchester City away for his new club on Saturday, the Ox is not a fantasy chip you want to play in GW4. 

Kevin Wimmer - £4.4m. Most of us have no idea if the Austrian international is actually any good. With Manchester United the opponent on Saturday, this isn't the week to risk finding out for fantasy purposes. Going forward though at only £4.4m, he is a player who can potentially be your last choice defender who can make spot starts in good match-ups.

Sergio Aguero - £11.5m. After playing two up front in the opening couple of games, Pep Guardiola went to one at Bournemouth in GW3 and he chose Gabriel Jesus instead of the Argentine international. As of the time of writing, 10.8% of teams have selected the Premier League legend but it is highly unlikely they'll revert back to playing two out and out strikers for the visit of Liverpool. Sadly for Sergio fans it looks like he's second choice. Time to rethink if you have splashed the cash on Aguero.

If you think I'm wrong, he's currently 2.04 to score at anytime in Saturday's match on the Exchange

Arsenal & Bournemouth's defences - various. You didn't think I would go through a fantasy preview without pouring more cold water on Arsene Wenger's defence did you? That Liverpool drumming was seriously scary and even though it is pointless Bournemouth coming into town on Saturday afternoon, I see this being a high scoring draw. You just can't trust Arsenal to keep a clean sheet, eight goals conceded in three games so far. As for Bournemouth's defensive options, I think Lacazette has his coming out party and shows his manager why he was wrong to bench him for Liverpool away.

Captain's pick

I'm going for Alexandre Lacazette (£10.4m) as I just don't think we've seen the best of him yet. Bournemouth play such an open game that we should see goals at the Emirates and it is time for the £52.7m man to step up.
