Did you beat the Fantasy Premier League experts in Gameweek 4?

The FPL Experts Panel team is run by some of the best Fantasy managers in the world.

They endured a somewhat disappointing Gameweek 4, their 49 points below the Gameweek average of 57.

Rearguard returns

Almost half that total was produced by the team's back-four.

Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m) was the top scorer with seven points, helping Liverpool to their first clean sheet of 2019/20.

His team-mate Andrew Robertson (£6.9m), along with Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.6m) and Lucas Digne (£6.1m), combined for a further 17 points.

Attacking blanks

Popular attackers Raheem Sterling (£12.3m) and Teemu Pukki (£7.0m) were the main culprits for the experts' team, both failing to score or assist for the first time this season.

The experts joined over 1.8million managers in trusting Sterling with the captaincy but were rewarded with only six points.

Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) also supplied six points. He followed up his two goals in Gameweek 3 with an assist in Liverpool's 3-0 win at Burnley.

DragonBall on fire

The experts' team now lies in 563,455th place in the overall standings. It is ranked 9,013 out of 35,799 teams in the "Beat the FPL Panel" mini-league.

Hady mohamed moves into first place, taking over from Tinaye Christian Mudzudzu.

Hady’s side, "DragonBall", managed an impressive 112 points after he played his Wildcard to bring in and captain Sergio Aguero (£12.1m). The forward rewarded him with 32 points.

Managers who want to take on the panel should enter the private classic league: "Beat the FPL Panel".
