Kammy: Beat Kammy GW5 Preview

Hey Footstock users! Kammy here, back after the international break with another team and another chance to prove I know my beans!

Let’s get straight into it. Here’s what I’m packing this week.

Kammy’s Gameweek 5 Team

Gareth to Bale me out

If only I was as good at fantasy football as I am at puns…

Bale is a risk – I know he’s a risk – but if he plays, what a player he could be this gameweek. Back where he belongs, full of motivation and with a London derby to boot, I expect Bale to hit the ground running if he plays in Gameweek 5.

West Ham have been brilliant so far this season, proving the doubters wrong when they beat Leicester 3-0 at the King Power on their last outing. Still, Spurs will be fired up for this one, and I expect them to keep up their impressive run of form.

Leicester deserve another chance

Leicester assets have let me down in the past, but I’m confident a well-rested Vardy and Barnes can inflict some damage on Villa.

It’s no secret that Villa have started the season well, and they look more robust defensively so far. But Leicester have got something to prove. They won’t have liked losing to West Ham, particularly after their incredible win against Man City the week before. I’m banking on them bouncing back!

Mahrez a sure starter?

With Kevin De Bruyne confirmed out of City’s game against Arsenal, the door is open for Mahrez to show what he can do. Mahrez is wasted on the bench – how many times does he have to prove his quality to Guardiola?

City’s fixture against Arsenal will surely give him that chance – one that I think he’ll grab by the footballs! Arsenal are a quality team, but their backline hasn’t done enough to put me off Mahrez.

Havertz looking promising

Kai Havertz has been Chelsea’s most impressive acquisition so far. With Werner still finding his feet and Ziyech out, Havertz has shown what he can do.

Chelsea’s home fixture against Southampton on Saturday gives him another chance to showcase his ability to Lampard, and I’m confident that the more that Chelsea play together, the sooner they’ll start to string together consistently good performances. As a 3*, he’s a strong addition to my side!

Fixtures over form

Wood and Stevens join my side because of fixtures over form. The pair play West Brom and Fulham respectively, both of which have struggled this season.

Burnley and Sheffield United have struggled too, but for me they’ve done enough to indicate that they probably won’t be struggling come the end of the season. I’m not expecting huge things from these 2* players, but I’m hoping they wear the Kammy team crest with pride and put in a performance for me!

Good luck to everyone competing for a share of the £1,000 this weekend! See you on the leaderboard.
