The big transfers in this week have seen 309K bring in Aleksander Mitrovic, 287K bring in Lucas Moura, 269k bring in Eden Hazard, 264k bring Marcos Alonso in and 263k bring in Jose Holebas.

The big movers out have seen 392k transfer out Wilfred Zaha, 240k transfer out Theo Walcott, 203k transfer out Mo Salah, 119k transfer Henrikh Mkhittaryan and 118K take out Richarlison.

Stand Out Players

Defenders and Goalkeepers are currently showing the best value for money so far, each point Jose Holebas has won would cost £141k, proving him to be the best value player in the game in the first 4 weeks.

Robert Pereya is the best value midfielder with 28 points to date, at a £6.3 million he is costing you £225K per point.

Aleksander Mitrovic is the forward to have, which is no surprise that he has been transferred in so much this week, he has 29 points in total and costs £6.7 million, meaning he has a point per £231k spent on him.

Points Forecast

When deciding who to captain it is worth taking into consideration who is playing who, the official FPL site forecasts player points based on this seasons form.

This game week they are tipping Marcos Alonso to be the top scorer with a projected 12.5 points, followed by Sadio Mane, Kieran Trippier, Jose Holebas and Sergio Augero,

For me Augero is the stand out choice this week and who the majority will go with, including myself, City are at home to Fulham and I think there is a good chance he is among the goals.
