Gameweek 5 Goal Analysis
What do the bookmakers make of the GW5 fixtures?
Brighton and Hove Albion will be looking to add to the 3 points they picked up last weekend when they travel to the Vitality Stadium to take on Bournemouth in the Friday Night Football.
The Cherries are still searching for their first point of the season, so Jermain Defoe and Josh King will be desperate to open their account for the season.
Things are no better at Selhust Park, where Crystal Palace are point-less and without a goal, having made the worst start in Premier League history. They entertain a goal-shy Southampton side in the Saturday lunch-time kick off, so don’t expect too many fireworks in this one.
It’s worth recollecting that the goal lines published above are all based on the latest Premier League betting lines, so it’s easy to see that Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United all have favourable fixtures on paper, although the Citizens do play away from home, taking on Watford at Vicarage Road.
Chelsea versus Arsenal is the pick of the GW5 action. Arsenal defeated the Blues on penalties in the Community Shield, as well as in the 2017 FA Cup final, so the stubborn Arsene Wenger may think that his side can get something out of this one.
Factoring-in fixture difficulty is one of the key ingredients to fantasy football success, so let those bookmakers do the work for you!
