Fantasy Premier League 2020/21: Gameweek 4
Andrew Robertson’s current form makes him a must-buy to get you ahead in the Fantasy Premier League title race
Fantasy Premier League 2020/21 will go for one more round before the international break. The gameweek four of the Fantasy Premier League calls for some exciting fixtures to be considered. Leicester City will host West Ham at the King Power Stadium which is expected to be a high-scoring fixture. Everton will face Brighton which is another game that the Fantasy Premier League bosses should bookmark. Liverpool will aim to continue with their perfect start when they visit Villa Park on Sunday.
FootTheBall brings you the top three players you must consider before making your transfer for gameweek four of the Fantasy Premier League 2020/21.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.5m)
Forward – Everton FC
It’s time to jump on the Calvert-Lewin bandwagon!
The Everton striker is currently leading the Premier League scoring charts alongside Jamie Vardy. 38% of the Fantasy Premier League gaffers have already added Calvert-Lewin to their kitty. The 23-year old has scored two hattricks in September for Everton in all competitions. He has registered 4 shots per 90 so far in the Premier League with a total xG of 3.3. That implies the good scoring positions Calvert-Lewin has popped up in with a non-penalty xG of 0.3 per shot.
Everton will play against Brighton on Saturday. Based on their current scoring patterns and gameplay, FootTheBall is expecting Everton to bag three goals against the Seagulls. Calvert-Lewin has a high probability to get his name twice on the scoresheet.
Before this season, Dominic Calvert-Lewin had never scored a hat-trick in senior football.

Calvert-Lewin has collected 31 points in the Fantasy Premier League, making him one of the best value-for-money strikers this season.
Matheus Pereira (£6m)
Midfielder – West Bromwich Albion
West Brom’s most creative player in the Championship last season seems a perfect fit to be considered ahead of gameweek four of the Fantasy Premier League. Matheus Pereira shone for the Baggies last week as they scored three past Chelsea in the first 30 minutes of the game. He earned ten points against Everton in gameweek three which saw him contributing in both the goals scored by West Brom.
The Baggies will travel to St. Mary’s Stadium to face Southampton. The Saints have not been in a good form lately, having conceded six goals in three games. While West Brom may not be the favourites to win the match, Pereira stands a decent chance to at least get an assist to his name. He is a potent threat from the right-wing. Pereira has got two assists to his name from five key passes so far. He is the target of most of West Brom’s passes after Grady Diangana.

Only 3.5% of the FPL population owns Pereira which makes him an economical differential. Gameweek four also seems the right time to add Pereira in your team with his next three opponents being Burnley, Brighton, and Fulham.
Andrew Robertson (£7m)
Defender – Liverpool FC
Going head-to-head against Aston Villa, Andrew Robertson should be the number one priority from your Liverpool wish-list. The Scottish left-back will cost you 0.5 less than Trent Alexander-Arnold and will save you with enough funds to purchase a low-budget midfielder should you opt for him over Mohamed Salah or Sadio Mane.
But why choose him against Aston Villa?
Liverpool have only kept one clean-sheet so far this season and that too because of Jorginho’s penalty save by Alisson. Liverpool have their first easy fixture of the season against Aston Villa on Sunday. In their last meeting with Villa, Liverpool won by two-nil. When the Reds visited Villa Park last season, Robertson got his name on the scoreboard.
Combining this with his current statistics adds more value to his price. Robertson has taken three shots in three games with a shot accuracy of 33%. When we look at this from his shot quality perspective, Robertson has clocked a non-penalty xG per shot of 0.21. He already has got a goal and an assist to his name which has made him Liverpool’s highest-scoring defender in the Fantasy Premier League charts this season with 20 points.

He is owned by 14% of the FPL managers compared with Alexander-Arnold’s ownership of 43.6% and Virgil Van Dijk’s 29%. Robertson’s current form makes him a must-buy to get you ahead in the Fantasy Premier League title race.
