FPL GW4 Transfer Tips: Who Are the Best Picks?

The opening couple of FPL gameweeks threw up a few surprises but the last gameweek was a little more predictable.

With prices so cheap this season, it’s more about which player to bring in, rather than can you afford them.

Here are the best players to transfer in for GW4.

Raheem Sterling – £7.1m

  • Fixtures: Nott’m Forest (H), Bournemouth (a), Aston Villa (H), Fulham (a), Burnley (a)
  • Ownership: 9%

After a magnificent performance against Luton on Friday night, many will be eager to bring Sterling into their team.

He showed his pedigree by scoring twice and getting an assist against the Hatters.

In the match, he managed 5 shots in the box, had two big chances, and created one big chance.

Additionally, he has produced 18 shot-creating actions so far this season (5th most).

Chelsea play Forest and Bournemouth next, who have both conceded 6 times (second most).

Their games after that include Burnley and Sheffield United, who have both lost all their games so far, so Sterling is also a good long term pick.

James Maddison – £7.6m

  • Fixtures: Burnley (a), Sheffield United (H), Arsenal (a), Liverpool (H), Luton (a)
  • Ownership: 17%

Maddison has enjoyed a fine start to his career at Spurs, registering a goal and two assists already.

The playmaker has the third-highest xA (1.6), supplying the third most shot-creating actions (19) and three goal-creating actions (fourth most).

He’s on set pieces too, with him being central to everything that Spurs create.

After their next fixtures, Burnley (a) and Sheff Utd (H), they do face far tougher fixtures in Arsenal (a) and Liverpool (H), though.

Julian Alvarez – £6.6m

  • Fixtures: Fulham (H), West Ham (a), Nott’m Forest (H), Wolves (a), Arsenal (a)
  • Ownership: 9%

It’s a goal and an assist so far for Alvarez in his second season at Man City.

He’s taken the third most shots (12) and shots on target (5), as well as making the second most key passes (12).

Alvarez has started every game for City this term, and at £6.6m is an option with great value.

The reigning champions are the only team with a 100% record and have very good fixtures on the horizon, including Fulham and Forest at home.

Ben Chilwell – £5.8m

  • Fixtures: Nott’m Forest (H), Bournemouth (a), Aston Villa (H), Fulham (a), Burnley (a)
  • Ownership: 31%

Chilwell owners have every reason to be optimistic about their asset.

With an assist already to his name, he has been playing extremely high in possession.

Against Luton, he created four chances for his teammates and has the third-highest xGI out of the defenders (1.4), with the 6th highest xA overall (1).

He even passed the ball while one-on-one with the Luton goalkeeper, to the fury of his owners.

Chelsea play Forest in GW4, and have a 49% chance of a clean sheet (second-best in GW4), before playing Bournemouth the week after.

Malo Gusto – £4.1m

  • Fixtures: Nott’m Forest (H), Bournemouth (a), Aston Villa (H), Fulham (a), Burnley (a)
  • Ownership: 8%

Gusto has started the last two games in Reece James’ absence, so we have a £4.1m starter with very good fixtures.

He has good attacking potential, getting two assists in GW3, as well as clean sheet potential in their next two games especially.

However, as mentioned, he has Reece James for competition when he recovers from injury, so keep an eye out for updates on James’ progress.
