Liverpool News: Fantasy Premier League tips: Best fantasy football transfers for FPL GW5


 Fantasy football managers have enjoyed a welcome rest from team selection headaches with the first international break of the season taking centre stage  However, Fantasy Premier League bosses looking to get the jump on their rivals will already be planning their transfers ahead of the weekend’s domestic action  Many bosses are contemplating playing their wildcard in an attempt to turn around a poor start while injuries picked up on international duty could have scuppered plenty of plans  In-form players such as Raheem Sterling and Teemu Pukki have both built on their early-season form with strikes for their national sides while favourable fixtures could see West Ham assets rapidly rise in value Trending Fantasy Premier League Tips GW5 GKP: Nick Pope (Burnley) – £4.6m With prices at a premium all over the pitch, saving money between the sticks is a tempting proposition  Nick Pope looks the most attractive asset among the budget goalkeepers, with Burnley’s run of fixtures far superior to those of Brighton and Aston Villa  DEF: Nicolas Otamendi (Manchester City) – £5.4m Plenty of managers picked up on Oleksandr Zinchenko’s potential at the start of the season, but Benjamin Mendy’s return from injury and Joao Cancelo’s versatility put his game time in doubt  Instead, a serious-looking injury to Aymeric Laporte has handed Nicolas Otamendi an opportunity to establish himself in central defence and the Argentine’s fitness record is sturdier than the similarly priced John Stones  DEF: Lucas Digne (Everton) – £6.1m Everton have flattered to deceive so far this campaign, but the Toffees have at least been reasonably solid at the back to give FPL bosses some return on their investments  Digne is also a threat from set-pieces and remains reasonably well-priced compared to rivals from other teams, with the Frenchman picking up another assist against Wolves for his second of the season  DEF: Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool) – £7.1m Alexander-Arnold was denied a first goal of the campaign when his deflected cross against Burnley was instead attributed to Chris Wood, but the full-back has still picked up three assists already  The Reds defender will give managers cover in a rearguard that finally picked up their first clean sheet of the season at Turf Moor  MID: Daniel James (Manchester United) – £6.1m Three goals in four appearances has seen James emerge as Manchester United’s most potent attacking force and he is a steal at just £6 1m. United are not playing well, but the Welsh winger has almost guaranteed he will feature from the off when the Premier League gets back underway after the international break  MID: Mason Mount (Chelsea) – £6.4m Heavy investment has seen Mount’s price rise considerably since the start of the season, but the playmaker is a favourite of Lampard and worth the extra money  Two goals already and boasting the lion’s share of set-pieces at Stamford Bridge, Mount is sure to be among the points when the Premier League returns later this month  MID: Raheem Sterling (Manchester City) – £12.3m Sterling will be the target of most managers’ wildcards, with the Manchester City winger having scored five goals already this season before hitting the back of the net for England against Bulgaria  A blank last time out against Brighton will not dissuade bosses from signing the England international, although they will need to shuffle some players around in order to free up the necessary funds  FWD: Teemu Pukki (Norwich City) – £7.0m Pukki is the surprise package of the season so far, with the Finnish striker having scored five goals in his first four matches  Over 38 per cent of managers now own the Norwich frontman, which has seen his price rise by a huge £0 5m, while Pukki was another who hit the target on international duty. FWD: Sebastien Haller (West Ham United) – £7 5m Haller had a quiet start to his West Ham career with a tough outing against champions City before injury sidelined him against Brighton  However, the Frenchman has three goals in his past two and looks to be first choice at the London Stadium ahead of an inviting run of fixtures  FWD: Alexandre Lacazette (Arsenal) – £9.4m Sergio Aguero will be the in-demand striker after topping the points table following the first four matches of the season, but there is plenty of value elsewhere in the premium striker bracket  Lacazette was handed a start in the north London derby and, like Roberto Firmino, offers a much cheaper alternative to expensive frontmen such as Harry Kane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
