Gameweek 6 Fantasy Premier League tips: Matches to target
This gameweek kicks off with the merseyside derby between Everton and Liverpool. Liverpool have not been great this season yet despite them thrashing Bournemouth 9-0. However, Everton have been absolutely dismal, failing to win a single match yet this season. Prediction will be for Liverpool to win this match even though it might not be as easy as it used to be in recent history. Tottenham drew against West Ham and now face Fulham. It will be a tough London derby as the newly promoted outfit is no slouch themselves.
Chelsea against West Ham, another London derby, favours Chelsea as West Ham aren’t firing yet this season. Wolves have lacked the presence of a finisher badly as they drew their last match. They are playing good football and are defending well. They will be the favourites against Southampton. Aston Villa are looking very vulnerable and Man City are rampant. It appears that it’ll be a pretty straight forward match with City having the upper hand. Newcastle against Crystal Palace will be a difficult match to call as both the teams are playing well under young managers. Brighton are the favoured team against Leicester who have recently lost Fofana and Vardy is not playing to his full potential.
The biggest match of the weekend is Manchester United vs Arsenal. Arsenal are playing electric football and on paper, looks the better team.
Gameweek 6 Fantasy Premier League tips: Players to target
Haaland is practically undroppable at this moment as he scored 3 goals in the first half against Forest.
Jesus also showed tremendous work rate and bagged a goal with excellent anticipation.
Mitrovic has always been a good bet this season with 5 goals to his name.
If you want a cheap alternative who might pitch in with a few goals, you can take a risky punt on City’s Alvarez. He scored twice in the match against Forest.
Firmino has also been returning constant points as is the highest assist provider in the league while also scoring in his last two matches.
Rodrigo was a good asset but he got injured. Pascal Gros can now be a good option for limited budget. He has accumulated 37 points so far in 5 matches which is a pretty decent return.
Martinelli is also a great pick for midfield as the Brazilian livewire scored 10 points in gameweek 5.
Salah returned 10 points (2 assists) despite not haing the best of the games, justifying his inclusion in the team.
Raheem Sterling has also started to find the back of the net recently. He accumulated 8 points even in a defeat.
City’s Bernardo (30 points so far) is a great option if you are not willing to spend big on De Bruyne.
Andreas is a good cheap option who is present in a lot of FPL teams.
Shrewd FPL managers may also pick Zaha who has scored 4 goals so far this season.
Cancelo looks like a good premium pick, scoring a goal and keeping a cleensheet in Gameweek 5.
Trent Alexander-Arnold keeps on suffering from Liverpool’s defensive failures.
William Saliba or Gabriel from Arsenal are both good passers with attacking potential from set pieces. Gabriel was the highest scoring centre back last season. If Zinchenko, he can be a good option as he plays quite advanced on the pitch.
Brighton’s Dunk is good option for FPL managers chasing defenders who deliver cleansheets. Dunk has given 3 so far, the highest in the league.
Perisic is another fullback who plays quite high and is a good passer.
Brighton’s Sanchez is a good pick as he has delivered the most number of cleansheets this season (3).
Forest’s Dean Henderson is a great pick as well because although he doesn’t promise a lot of cleansheets, he has the highest number of saves in the league so far with 25.
Newcastle’s Nick Pope is also an excellent keeper with high shot stopping scores (19) along with Brentford’s Raya (22).
Ederson can also be a premium option.
Captaincy and vice-captaincy.
It is difficult to look beyond Haaland about captaincy with the Norwegian in superb scoring form (9 goals). Salah has been quite by his standards but in big matches, he has the precedent of coming alive. A differential pick can be Cancelo as well as Villa are not playing well and are unlikely to score.
