FPL 2023-24 – Gameweek 4 Goalkeepers

-

All Things FPL assesses the lay of the land when it comes to fantasy goalkeepers ahead of Gameweek 4.

The standout goalkeeper from a fantasy perspective in Gameweek 3 was undoubtedly Jose Sa (£5.0m), who was the only shot-stopper who hit double figures for points over the weekend. Wolves’ 0-1 victory at Everton saw Sa make seven saves in addition to his clean sheet, which resulted in the Portuguese star receiving maximum bonus points. His gameweek total of 11 points was four more than his nearest competitor in that department. Wolve face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in Gameweek 4.

No goalkeeper has accumulated more FPL points over the last two weeks than Vicario (£5.0m). Tottenham’s new number one followed up his 11-point haul against Man Utd with a further seven points against Bournemouth in Gameweek 3. The Italian is now the joint-highest scoring fantasy goalkeeper and his short-term prospects look good given that Spurs face promoted sides Burnley and Sheffield Utd in the next two gameweeks.

Chelsea keeping their first clean sheet of the season will have been much to the delight of Robert Sanchez (£4.5m) owners, who have had to wait patiently for their points. More shut-outs could be on the horizon though, as Maurizio Pochettino’s men entertain Nottingham Forest at Stamford Bridge in Gameweek 4, followed by a trip to the Vitality Stadium to take on Bournemouth.

Premium option Alisson Becker (£5.5m) showed that you don’t necessarily need to keep a clean sheet in order to produce a satisfactory return, as his seven saves against Newcastle, supplemented by a bonus point, gave the Liverpool goalkeeper five points. West Ham’s budget stopper Alphonse Areola (£4.1m) went a step further by making nine saves in the 1-3 win at Brighton and was somewhat unfortunate not to finish in the bonus points. Mark Flekken (£4.5m), meanwhile, did receive a bonus point thanks to his four saves in Brentford’s 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace, and he has now returned ten points over the course of the last two gameweeks.

Perhaps the best example of this, however, is Bernd Leno (£4.5m). The German was a busy man against former club Arsenal on Saturday, making eight saves in the 2-2 draw. That was good enough for two bonus points and a total of five points from the match. Leno has comfortably made more saves (22) than any other goalkeeper this season.
