Now that the Champions League is finished for the week we can jump back on the FPL wagon and take a look at the match-ups that are more pressing in the official game.   Unfortunately rotations are going to be a major factor.  That and the injury to Paul Pogba.  His ownership is too much to look beyond.  My advice for him is this.  If you have owned him from week one then you can bench for the 2 weeks he most likely misses and not lose anything to your accrued team value.  If you only just bought him in the past 2 weeks then you can transfer out and look for some kind of reprieve for fantasy points.  But back to the rotation risks.  All of Chelsea, Spurs, Liverpool, Man City, Man United, Arsenal and Everton are all at risk and the rankings will shy away from a few players that either played full 90’s or that didn’t see the pitch as much.  So be heady and keep your ear to the gossip for who will sit and who will play before making a atransfer this week in a trivial yet pivotal game week 5.  Enjoy the rankings and good luck.  Cheers!

After Arsenal’s first finish outside the top-4 in 21 years, the Gunners enter a season with a decent amount of uncertainty. Alexis Sánchez and Mesut Özil, the top two scorers for Arsenal in the FPL last year, are nearing the ends of their contracts with no sign of extensions, and there’s still time this transfer session for one or either of them to move.  As usual they have a bevy of talented but oft injured midfielders and solid defenders, but the real treat this year is the expensive new striker Alexandre Lacazette, who comes over from Lyon after scoring 28 goals last year.
