We love FPL but we also like to play daily fantasy football, and our favourite place to do that right now is on Sportito.co.uk. With no salary cap involved, we can select the lineup we want, in whatever formation we prefer. Sportito have games covering the international games, European football and of course the Premier League. Click here and beat us to the cash prize!
Every week we pick a lineup on Sportito.co.uk, in our attempt to get some coppers into the Fanfeud Christmas Party fund. Below we will explain our team for Gameweek 4! Let us know what you think of our team in the comments below, and share your own suggested lineup with us @Fanfeud!
Our goalkeeper decision came down to David de Gea v Fraser Forster of Southampton. You really can’t go wrong with either player as both have made productive starts to the season. The Red Devils player would be our #1 keeper this week, but we had to sacrifice him to get in his teammate Eric Bailly in our defence. On Sportito, you can only have 4 players from any individual team and De Gea to Forster is a sacrifice we are willing to make in order to get his outfield team-mates.
In defence, Marcos Alonso is a must buy in all fantasy formats, including on Sportito. Last year against Leicester he scored 2 goals, can he repeat the feat? You want him on your team when you find out the answer to that question. Alongside him in defence we have Eric Bailly from Man United as they face Stoke City. He has scored an average of 10.25 points per game this season on Sportito (joint second most among defenders), and we like his chances to continue that this weekend. Our third defender is Harry Maguire from Leicester City. While we feel Chelsea will beat the Tigers, Maguire offers a lot in attack for a defender. Every lineup has to have a bit of a wildcard selection, and we just have a feeling that Maguire will deliver this weekend.
In midfield, we are being quite predictable, pairing the two Man Utd boys Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba, with Spurs duo Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen. Away to Stoke and Everton may not seem like optimal situations for these players but their quality means that they can score and assist against anyone. Sadio Mane, Mo Salah, Eden Hazard and Alexis Sanchez are all classified as forwards on Sportito, so couldn’t be considered as alternatives.
Up front, Harry Kane just missed out on selection in a frontline of Alvaro Morata, Roberto Firmino and Romelu Lukaku. We are big believers in holding on to Kane in FPL, but in DFS it is all about this gameweek so we can afford to wait for him to break his PL 2017/18 duck. Lukaku gets the nod for us. Roberto Firmino is currently the top scorer on both FPL and Sportito, and so deserves selection even following Brazil duty, and up against a Man City defence which has looked improved. Alvaro Morata has quietly settled very well into the Premier League and with two goals and two assists from his opening three games, he is an easy selection at Leicester.
This starting 11 is worth £89.5m in FPL but the beauty of the Sportito format is that there are no prices! You can pick who you want, and change your lineup around each week! Play against us this week in their free game (which has a cash prize), and when you have familiarised yourself with their system, you can play in the bigger cash pots and take home big money! Good luck!!
