The Dream Team from Gameweek 3 which scored 133 pointsThe Premier League is back. Hurrah! Life is going to be alright again. After a gruelling weekend where we had to suffice our footballing hearts with meaningless international friendlies, normalcy will be resumed this coming weekend. This also means the return to focus of the world’s favourite fantasy game, the Fantasy Premier League.It’s that time of the week again when we have to stress every muscle of our brain to figure out whom to bring in or “kick” out from our Fantasy Premier League team. That’s where we come in. Helping you pick out chaff from the grain, the diamonds in the coal mine.Here is a list of 5 players that you should be having your eyes on for Gameweek 4 of the Fantasy Premier League.

#1 Mario Balotelli - Liverpool

Mario Balotelli
Mario Balotelli in action for Liverpool last game-week against Spurs.

Mario Balotelli now becomes the focal point of Liverpool’s attack with Daniel Sturridge now ruled out for up to three weeks. This should also give you the green signal to make a like-for-like replacement in your fantasy team. 

The enigmatic forward made his debut for Liverpool in their impressive 3-0 win over Tottenham a fortnight ago. Although, the Italian failed to rack up any significant fantasy points, he gave us a glimpse as to why top clubs keep queuing up for his services. 

If transferred in for Sturridge, Balotelli (priced at £10 million) frees up a precious £1.5million of your budget that you can spend on that lucrative pricey midfielder that you were on the lookout for.

With the fixture list also becoming kind to the Merseysiders in the coming weeks, it’s the best time to rope Balotelli into your side.
