FPL 2023-24 – Gameweek 5 Movers & Shakers


We take a look at the players who have been bought and sold in their droves over the international break.


Heung-Min Son (£9.1m) – Tottenham
After a quiet start to the season in which Son recorded three straight blanks, the South Korean burst into life in Gameweek 4 with a stunning hat-trick in Spurs’ 2-5 victory away at Burnley. Given his pedigree in the Premier League, many FPL managers are hoping he can now reach the heights of previous seasons with over 440k managers moving for him since the last gameweek.

Julian Alvarez (£6.7m) – Man City
Another popular choice over the international break is that of Alvarez, who produced a 14-point return against Fulham. With the vast majority of FPL managers already owning Erling Haaland, a double-up on City forwards is too tempting an opportunity to ignore for those who have already invested in the Argentine.

James Maddison (£7.8m) – Tottenham
Son isn’t the only Spurs asset who is attracting attention from fantasy managers right now, with Maddison’s ownership once again on the rise. The former Leicester star was on the scoresheet once again in Gameweek 4, and that is now four attacking returns in four Premier League appearances since his move to the North London club.


Nicholas Jackson (£7.2m) – Chelsea
Although Chelsea’s summer signing found the net in the Gameweek 3 win over Luton, Gameweek 4 proved that the patience of FPL managers can often be short-lived as the striker’s blank against Nottingham Forest has meant that he has so far been shown the exit door by over 270k managers. With the Blues facing Bournemouth in Gameweek 5 though, could this prove to be a mistake?

Alexander Isak (£7.7m) – Newcastle
Another player who has lost the faith of many fantasy bosses is Newcastle frontman Alexander Isak. After two goals and 13 FPL points in Gameweek 1, many were clamouring to bring in the Swede, but three consecutive blanks, coupled with the competition that Callum Wilson provides up front for the Magpies, has ensured a significant loss in ownership for Isak.

Joao Pedro (£5.5m) – Brighton
Despite Gameweek 4 seeing Joao Pedro making his first Premier League start since the opening weekend of action, the Brighton forward continues to leak owners at a remarkable rate. The summer recruit’s status as a popular budget forward seems like a distant memory now, with a further 200k+ sales over the past week-and-a-half.
