Come gather round, for our Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 5 forwards round-up is here make your punking day.

Although our tips are based on FPL player prices, the principles should apply more or less across the board – so if your fantasy football game of choice lies at Sky Sports, the Telegraph, the Mirror or indeed anywhere else, you’re still welcome here.


Now let’s have a look at those Gameweek 5 forwards…

Romelu Lukaku and Steven Naismith, Everton – £9m and £5.2m

With the former up and running for the season and the latter with three goals to his name already, this weekend’s visit of Crystal Palace is a great chance for both to keep momentum going.

Keep an eye on Everton’s Europa League game at home to Wolfsburg on Thursday night as this could affect their line-up against Palace.

Leonardo Ulloa, Leicester City – £5.5m

The Argentine’s winner at Stoke City was his third of the season already, with his other two coming in draws against Everton and Arsenal.

Leicester play host this weekend to Manchester United, who may have looked imperious against Queens Park Rangers but will find a far tougher test awaiting them at the King Power Stadium.

Gabriel Agbonlahor, Aston Villa – £5.5m

His winner at Anfield made it goals in consecutive games for the Villa stalwart, who has tormented Arsenal in the past and has the chance to do so again this weekend.

Nikica Jelavić, Hull City – £6m

See how he gets on against West Ham United tonight, because he’s already got a couple of goals this season and his Gameweek 5 opponent Newcastle United look to be in total disarray.

Good luck and happy selecting!
