Key Stats from GW5

By Fantasy Football Fix ()

xFPL is calculated primarily using expected goals (xG), assists (xA), which combine as Fantasy Premier League (FPL) involvements (xG + xA = xI), as well as expected clean sheets (xC). These numbers are a result of underlying statistics (i.e. shot type and location will give a probability of scoring = xG). xFPL is the combination of these statistics and factors in appearance and bonus points to give an overall expected FPL point score.

Sarr tops the xFPL Custom Stats Table for gameweek five, no player landed more shots on target (five) or was afforded more 'big chances' (four) than the Senegalese, leading to an xFPL score of 12.7. Alonso's numbers are also impressive with four shots in the box and an xFPL score of 8.6. 


Shaw and D. Luiz were the most creative players with five attempted assists apiece. Attacking defenders Alonso and Tsimikas were close behind with four each. 


Jota owners can count themselves extremely unlucky, he had the greatest Expected goals (xG) underperformance (0.9) (Expected goals - Actual Goals) of any player in gameweek five. Ronaldo backers were a tad unfortunate only to get the one goal as well as the Portuguese underperformed his xG by 0.8.
