Fantasy Premier League: Gameweek Four Scout Report

Which City stars should you consider for your FPL team this weekend?

As part of our regular series, the Scout provides expert analysis into a City player expected to stand out each week, as well as an opponent to watch out for and one other Premier League player who could pick up the points.

The Matchday Live host for our upcoming fixture also offers their thoughts, with Natalie Pike revealing who she thinks could come up with the goods against Leicester at the King Power Stadium.


With the Gameweek Four transfer window slamming shut at 11:00am (UK) on Saturday morning, there's still plenty of time to make those all important switches.

Could Ferran Torres back up his King of the Match performance against Arsenal with a similar display against the Foxes? And can City's defence stop Leicester talisman Jamie Vardy at the other end?

Enjoy our FPL Gameweek Four predictions below...

City Star

The Scout: Ferran Torres (£7.1m) has been a huge target for managers in Fantasy Premier League over the international break.

Manchester City’s Spaniard continues to thrive in a central attacking role, scoring twice and supplying an assist against Arsenal in Gameweek 3.


Torres’s 18-point return in the 5-0 win has made him the second most-bought player in Gameweek 4.

A massive 700,000+ new owners have brought him in for Man City’s visit to Leicester City.

Up against a Foxes side who have conceded five goals in the last two Gameweeks, Torres is worth considering for the captaincy in Fantasy.

Natalie's Matchday Live pick: I'm backing Ilkay Gundogan (£7.3). We have so many world class midfielders, so we don’t always know who will start but with Gundo I feel like he’s one of the first names on the team sheet.

He was our top scorer last year, got off the mark against Arsenal in our last game and pops up with plenty of assists too.

Ilkay would be my first pick for a Manchester City player this week.

Opponent to watch

The Scout: Jamie Vardy (£10.5m) will offer the hosts’ main goal threat at the King Power Stadium.

The Foxes frontman has started the campaign in form, with two goals and an assist in the first three Gameweeks.

Vardy also scored a hat-trick against Man City in Gameweek 2 last term.


Natalie's Matchday Live pick: Jamie Vardy. We know he loves to score against us - in fact, he’s scored eight in the last five years.

I sincerely hope he doesn’t this weekend though, obviously for City and also because I have Ruben Dias in my team!

For a top tier striker, he’s relatively cheap at £10.5 in comparison to others in the league as well. I do think he’s a decent price and with that scoring record against us he’s the one to watch.

Premier League pick

The Scout: Romelu Lukaku (£11.5m) is another key captaincy pick for Gameweek 4 as Chelsea entertain Aston Villa.

The Belgian’s 10 shots and nine shots in the box in the last two Gameweeks both rank among the top two players in Fantasy.

Natalie's Matchday Live pick: Sadly, I don’t want to say it but it’s Cristiano Ronaldo for me (£12.5).

Personally, I don’t have United players in my team - I play with my heart and not my head, but he'd be one to watch.

The likelihood is that he’ll feature against Newcastle this Saturday and you know he has an amazing scoring record wherever he's played.

On his debut as well, he'll be keen to make a statement, but hopefully he doesn't!
