Cape Town - Sport24 soccer expert Wade Pretorius looks at which Premier League players are going to shine and which players may not...

21 points in Week 4 means I rocket up the leaderboard (up 24 places) after going for City trio - Toure, Silva and Kolarov - and Chelsea's new signing Pedro. 

I now sit in 18th place in the Sport24 pool which has a new leader aftere Kuban Nair aka RouNDz was displaced by Mossy (real name Moses Nkwane) but what does week five have in store?

Players to watch in week five:

Sergio Aguero (Manchester City) - Aguero scored for Argentina on international duty and I'm backing him to get a goal at Selhurst Park.

Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal) - Arsenal at home to Stoke, surely Sanchez will find the back of the net.

Riyad Mahrez (Leicester City) - Mahrez has reportedly grabbed the attention of Barcelona and Arsenal this season, will he score against Villa?

Hector Bellerin (Arsenal) - I'm not expecting too many clean sheets this week but Arsenal may just get one against the Potters.
