Fantasy managers will welcome the return of the Premier League following the first international break of the season.

Many managers will have played their Wildcard ahead of Gameweek 5 with Tottenham Hotspur assets among the most transferred in players this week.

Indeed, three of the top four most-bought players since the Gameweek 4 deadline are Son Heung-min, James Maddison and Cristian Romero.

Son in particular looks like an enticing prospect at home to Sheffield United as many will be expecting him to again start in a central striking role after his hat-trick from that position against Burnley.

Meanwhile, his main rival for the position, Richarlison, is yet to score or assist a Premier League goal this season.

Smarkets will therefore be leaning into this this week, with markets on both Son and Maddison to score over 7.5 and 6.5 points respectively.

As managers look to bring in the Spurs pair, someone making way from many Fantasy teams is Raheem Sterling. While he has at times failed to turn promising performances into Fantasy returns, odds of 3.5 for him to score over 7.5 points away at Bournemouth look enticing.

Arsenal will be looking to build on their late win over Manchester United as they play Everton away. Despite Everton generally struggling in the league in recent years, the Gunners have only picked up one point in total from their past five trips to Goodison Park.

Arsenal’s main Fantasy assets, such as Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard, may struggle to haul in what could be a low-scoring encounter. Under 3.5 goals is heavily odds-on at 1.53 (8/15) and so there could be value in backing either Saka or Odegaard to get under 6.5 points at (8/15) and 1.67 (4/6) respectively.

There are also the usual markets on offer for fixture-proof heavy hitters Mohamed Salah and Erling Haaland, both to grab over 8.5 points.
