Now that the first International break of the season is over, we take a look at the Captain Picks for Gameweek 5 that can help you recover some valuable lost points of the previous 4 Game Weeks.
Mo Salah (v/s Spurs) (A)
Salah was instrumental for Egypt during the International break, as he scored 2 goals against Niger. The winger has been in fine form since the start of the season and his performance in the African Cup of Nations qualifier will only boost his confidence further as Liverpool travel to Wembley to take on Tottenham.
Eden Hazard (v/s Cardiff) (H)
The Belgian is enjoying his football both for club & country. During the International break, Hazard scored a goal and set up another as Belgium ran riots against Scotland in a friendly. In gameweek 4 against Bournemouth, Hazard was on the score sheet for the Blues and with their next match at home to Cardiff, we predict Hazard to be deadly.
Sergio Aguero (v/s Fulham) (H)
Aguero hasn’t been on the scoresheet since the Argentine scored a hattrick against Huddersfield in Gameweek 2. We expect this to change when City host Fulham at the Etihad. On his day, Sergio Aguero is one of the best strikers and can torment any defence in the world. Fulham are not the best team defensively and are yet to keep a clean sheet in their Premier League this campaign.
Pierre Emerick Aubameyang (v/s Newcastle) (A)
Aubameyang finally hit the ground running for the season when he found the back of the net against Cardiff with beautiful out of the box shot. The Gabonese has been a little unlucky this term as he has missed a few chances but his goal against the newly promoted Cardiff would mean the world to his confidence.
Danny Ings (v/s Brighton) (H)
Ings was deemed surplus to demands when he was loaned off to the Saints by Liverpool. The striker proved his critics wrong when he got on the score sheet when he started a game for Southampton against Everton. The former Burnley striker has scored twice this season and would be eyeing to improve his tally by getting his name on the score sheet once again.
