Fantasy Football Dream Team: GW6

Teams to target: Liverpool, Manchester City

Everton vs. Liverpool
Liverpool will be looking to extend their local rivals pain when the pair kick the Premier League weekend off on Saturday.

Liverpool were perhaps fortunate to beat Newcastle United on Wednesday evening, but should easily have too much against Everton.

The Reds have scored 11 goals in their last two matches, yet Mohamed Salah has failed to find the net, registering just a couple of assists.

If owned, he is a definite hold here and with Erling Haaland a rested candidate for the trip to Aston Villa, Salah remains a very good captain bet.

Defensively Liverpool have struggled this season, keeping just the single clean sheet, but I’d definitely hold the likes of Trent Alexander Arnold and Andrew Robertson if owned.

Darwin Nunez will return from suspension, but may have to make do with a spot on the bench, so he remains an avoid purchase.

Aston Villa vs. Manchester City
Manchester City will be confident of another victory when they travel to face Aston Villa this weekend.

The pair have had differing starts, Villa losing four, whilst City have won four and are just two points off top spot.

Haaland has recorded back to back hat-tricks, but is potentially a rested candidate here with one eye on the Champions League.

An easy hold and would be a brave FPL manager not to captain him here given his ridiculous form, even with the risk of rotation.

Kevin de Bruyne was given a breather in the win over Forest and will surely come into the side, whilst the likes of Joao Cancelo and Phil Foden remain excellent options.

Opposition to target: Bournemouth

Nottingham Forest vs. Bournemouth
Both promoted sides have been on the end of heavy defeats already this season; however there seems to be a lot more positivity surrounding the hosts.

Bournemouth dismissed Scott Parker following the 9-0 loss to Liverpool on the weekend and the club haven’t scored in their last four matches.

GW6 represents a decent chance to field Neco Williams, with the full-back perhaps unlucky not to have recorded more than the eight points he has so far.

Bournemouth easily have the lowest recorded XG this season and are second bottom for XG conceded, which coupled the fact they are without a manager, means they are the team to target at the moment.

Other options

Arsenal: Gabriel Jesus, Gabriel Martinelli
Sunday’s trip to Old Trafford represents the hardest task for league leaders Arsenal this season.

The Gunners dominated Aston Villa on Wednesday evening and they really should have won by more than a one goal margin.

I wouldn’t be buying Arsenal options this week given the fixture; however the likes of Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli remain easy holds.

The Gunners have kept just two clean sheets in five, so GW6 potentially could see the first chance to bench an Arsenal defender with Manchester United seemingly improving.

Tottenham: Harry Kane
Tottenham have 11 points from their first five games; however are yet to really get going this season it feels.

They entertain newly promoted Fulham on Saturday, a side that have made an excellent start to the new campaign and the fixture won’t be easy.

Harry Kane has returned in every game-week since blanking in their opener against Southampton and he could even be a captaincy option here.

Heung Min Son and Dejan Kulusevski have just one return between them since GW1 and it feels like you can avoid these even with the favourable fixture.

GW5 Dream Team: Sanchez; Alexander-Arnold, Williams, Cancelo; De Bruyne, Salah, Diaz, Martinelli; Kane, Haaland, Welbeck
