Even if you don’t succeed in getting all five right, Fantasy5’s leaderboard allows you to win prizes beyond the £10k jackpot.

We have selected our own picks for Gameweek 2, which can you can read below.

The deadline for this week’s entries is at 15:00 BST on Saturday 13 August.


Last week’s selection brought success for Emerson Royal (6.5), whose two assists helped register eight points. However, it was impossible to pick five winners as they only arrived in three of the selected matches.

Martin Odegaard (7.5) has a lower target than his attacking teammates and was an FPL underachiever of last season. He created the fourth-most chances (77), yet ended with just four assists. A home clash versus the poor Leicester City defence could become a lot of fun for Arsenal’s captain.

Elsewhere, it’s not often that a 10.5 points target will be backed in Fantasy5 but for Erling Haaland – playing for the champions at home to newly-promoted Bournemouth – ending with a hat-trick is very feasible. Around 900,000 FPL managers have fixed their mistake of not having the 22-year-old for his opening day brace at West Ham United.

Brentford at home to Manchester United is tough to call. Will the likes of Ivan Toney (6.5) and Bryan Mbeumo (7.5) bring a second defeat to Erik ten Hag’s side? Or can Bruno Fernandes (8.5) or Jadon Sancho (7.5) deliver? We have backed the lower-priced Christian Norgaard (5.5) to get on the scoresheet.

Similarly difficult is Chelsea vs Tottenham Hotspur. If you’re expecting a low-scoring contest without the confidence to predict a clean sheet for either team, let’s follow the form of Ryan Sessegnon. If the defender scores again, it should be enough to beat his 6.5 target.

Finally, Liverpool assets are strongly backed to blow Crystal Palace away, despite the Eagles’ strong defence allowing the second-fewest big chances throughout the 2021/22 campaign. Mohamed Salah (12.5), Luis Diaz (8.5), Darwin Nunez (8.5) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (9.5) are therefore priced highly. Instead, perhaps Jordan Ayew (4.5) can shock the Reds just like Aleksandar Mitrovic did – a simple assist will suffice for the Ghana international.
