Fantasy Premier League: GW6 Dream Team

Game week 5 was the highest scoring week of the season with the likes of Harry Kane, Timo Werner, Bruno Fernandes, Heung Min Son and Marcus Rashford all producing double digit hauls.

This weekend there are some tough looking fixtures to predict as Manchester United host Chelsea and Leicester City travel to face Arsenal.

On paper Liverpool and Manchester City have favourable games this weekend and despite both sides having numerous injuries, I’m sure a lot of sides will heavily feature players from the two clubs.

Aston Villa vs. Leeds United: Jack Grealish (7.2)
Aston Villa remain the only side with a 100% start to the season following a late 1-0 win at Leicester City last weekend.

Dean Smith’s side look incredibly strong this season, keeping the most clean sheets so far this term and scoring 12 in just four matches.

Leeds United have made a solid start to the campaign, however have a few injuries going into this one and few would back against a fifth win in five for Villa.

Jack Grealish has three goals and three assists already this term and appears the best option, however Emi Martinez and Ross Barkley are also good shouts.

Other options
Emi Martinez (4.8)
Ross Barkley (5.9)

West Ham United vs. Manchester City: Raheem Sterling (11.6)
Manchester City have been surprisingly quiet in front of goal in their last two games, scoring just twice, however both came through Raheem Sterling.

After a slow start to the campaign, the former Liverpool man is finding his feet and will look to add to his tally against a side he has scored eight and provided eight assists against in just 13 matches.

The absence of Kevin de Bruyne means they aren’t as much of an attacking threat, however defensively they have improved since their 5-2 defeat to Leicester City.

Joao Cancelo appears a shoe in to start with Benjamin Mendy injured and the full-back is another good option.

Other options
Joao Cancelo (5.4)
Sergio Aguero (10.4)

Fulham vs. Crystal Palace: Michy Batshuayi (5.8)
In Fulham’s last two matches they have looked much better defensively, conceding just once in each, however they still remain a side to target.

Michy Batshuayi got his first start since rejoining Palace last time out due to Jordan Ayew’s positive Covid-19 test and at 5.8 represents good value.

Palace are better on the road it seems given their counter attacking style and they should come away from the game with at least a point.

Defensive options include Tyrick Mitchell at just (4.2) and Vicente Guaita (5.0) has been one of the best keeping options in FPL since his move to England.

Other options
Vicente Guaita (5.0)
Aleksandar Mitrovic (5.9)

Manchester United vs. Chelsea: Marcus Rashford (9.5)
Tough one to call this: Chelsea can’t defend and Manchester United have looked awful at Old Trafford this term.

There is a good chance of goals here though and the likes of Marcus Rashford and a fit again Christian Pulisic appear decent picks.

Rashford has stepped up in recent weeks given the absence of the banned Anthony Martial and injured Mason Greenwood.

Pulisic has come straight into the XI since recovering from injury and looked a real threat in their 3-3 draw with Southampton last weekend.

Other options
Christian Pulisic (8.3)
Mason Mount (6.9)

Liverpool vs. Sheffield United: Andrew Robertson (7.1)
Liverpool have numerous injuries ahead of this one, however a fixture against a slow starting Sheffield United is a favourable one.

Andrew Robertson has arguably been Liverpool’s best player this season and he has comfortably outscored the more expensive Trent Alexander-Arnold, with one goal, two assists and a clean sheet to his name.

It is also hard to look past Mohamed Salah here, with the winger subbed early against Ajax in midweek leaving his fresh for the visit of the Blades.

Other options
Mohamed Salah (12.3)
Sadio Mane (11.9)

Southampton vs. Everton: Dominic Calvert-Lewin (7.7)
Two sides who have made decent starts to the season met on Sunday as Southampton host the early league leaders Everton.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin has seven goals in his first five games this term and will look to expose a high Southampton line.

Despite their impressive start, Everton have conceded seven goals already and are without a clean sheet since the opening day.

Danny Ings is as reliable of an option in FPL as there is and few would back against the former Liverpool man scoring here.

Other options
Danny Ings (8.5)
Lucas Digne (6.2)

Wolves vs. Newcastle United: Max Kilman (4.1)
Wolves host Newcastle United looking to secure a third win in a row on Sunday.

Max Kilman has been the star man for Wolves in recent weeks with the 4.1 defender scoring 21 points in the last two games.

Wolves have kept three clean sheets already this term and few would back against a fourth here.

Raul Jimenez scored his third of the season in the win over Leeds on Monday and he is another good option.

Other options
Raul Jimenez (8.5)
Romain Saiss (5.2)

Arsenal vs. Leicester City: Ainsley Maitland-Niles (4.9)
Another tough one to call, especially with both involved in the Europa League on Thursday evening.

Pierre Emerick Aubameyang is without a return in his last three league matches; however remains a good FPL option.

The man we are picking here though is Ainsley Maitland-Niles (should he start) with the wing-back role a good one for FPL points.

Other options
Pierre Emerick Aubameyang (11.8)
Timothy Castagne (5.8)

Brighton vs. West Brom: Tariq Lamptey (4.7)
Two sides with just one league win between them meet on Monday as West Brom travel to Brighton.

Brighton have looked impressive at times this season, however have struggled to finish their chances!

Tariq Lamptey has been their best player so far and the 4.7 defender already has three assists to his name.

Other options
Neil Maupay (6.6)
Callum Robinson (5.5)

Burnley vs. Tottenham: Harry Kane (10.8)
Going forward no side has looked as good as Tottenham this season, averaging three goals per game.

Somehow they have just two wins from their first five though, blowing a 3-0 lead at home to West Ham United last weekend.

Harry Kane and Heung Min Son have three double digit hauls each this term and both are great options again here.

Defensively they have been awful though, especially when it comes to dealing with crosses and Chris Wood will fancy his chances here.

Other options
Heung Min Son (9.4)
Chris Wood (6.4)

GW6 Dream Team:
(4-3-3): Matt Ryan; Tariq Lamptey, Andrew Robertson, Max Kilman, Joao Cancelo; Jack Grealish, Mohamed Salah (C), Raheem Sterling; Harry Kane, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Raul Jimenez
