Going into week four of this Premier League season it appears that teams are starting to settle in to a more defensive approach considering the number of draws last weekend. Out of the six draws from week three matches, half of them ended up 0-0 and other half ended 1-1.
There were some surprises, but overall, there was very little to help predict matches in the coming weeks. Whatever does come this weekend, I am expecting it to be exciting.

While I would love to recommend that you use this for helping to set your Premier League fantasy lineups, last weekend’s predictions didn’t help me a whole lot. It’s possible that Sunderland may have finally turned the corner after gameweek three’s 1-1 draw.
After stacking my teams with Swansea players I felt very let down. It does look likely that Man City will continue to roll and facing Watford should be an interesting match up for any FPL managers looking to get some attacking points. The only problem here will be trying to find the salary available to stack as many City players as possible.
Good luck in your FPL endeavors and enjoy your soccer this weekend! Stay tuned for more later on this week.
