Fantasy Premier League: GW6 Dream Team

GW5 was frustrating for FPL managers with no shows from the likes of Trent Alexander Arnold, Andrew Robertson, Reece James and Richarlison.

Michail Antonio holders could be rewarded this week with West Ham facing an injury hit Leeds United side.

Elsewhere there is two massive games as Chelsea host Manchester City and we have the first North London derby of the season as Tottenham travel to face Arsenal.

Chelsea vs. Manchester City: Antonio Rudiger
Two of the four genuine title candidates meet on Saturday as Chelsea host Manchester City, the first time the pair have faced each other since the Champions League final.

Both sides have conceded just one goal each and it’s unlikely there will be a lot of goals at Stamford Bridge in the opening game of the weekend.

Antonio Rudiger has been immense since Thomas Tuchel joined the club and he opened his account for the season in the win over Tottenham last week.

Ruben Dias is the best bet for the visitors, whilst the likes of Reece James and Marcos Alonso are further good Chelsea picks.

Manchester United vs. Aston Villa: Cristiano Ronaldo
Cristiano Ronaldo has four goals in his first three games since returning to Manchester United having scored in the win over West Ham last weekend.

Aston Villa have made a steady start to the campaign; however it is hard to look past Ronaldo continuing his fine start to the season.

United have struggled for clean sheets this term, so Mason Greenwood and Bruno Fernandes are other good picks for the hosts.

Everton vs. Norwich City: Demari Gray
Everton face rock bottom Norwich City on Saturday, with the visitors yet to get off the mark this season.

Everton have numerous absentees going into this one, which probably increases the appeal of Demari Gray who has made a good start to the campaign.

Lucas Digne is a doubt for the hosts, but should he overcome injury, then he is a good option for Rafael Benitez’s side.

Leeds United vs. West Ham United: Michail Antonio
Antonio is available again for West Ham having sat out the defeat to Manchester United due to suspension.

Leeds United could be down to just two central defensive options and have already conceded 12 goals this season.

Antonio has been the best striker in the game so far this term; however he hasn’t scored in nine previous matches against Leeds.

I would feel confident about him ending that run on Saturday though!

Leicester City vs. Burnley: Jamie Vardy
Both Leicester City and Burnley have struggled so far this season and they are probably worse off than they imagined they’d be.

Despite their struggles, Jamie Vardy has three goals and one assist and looks a good bet in this favourable home fixture.

Other options include Ricardo Pereira who is one of the best full-backs in the division and Harvey Barnes.

Watford vs. Newcastle United: Allan Saint-Maximin
Watford earned a vital win at Norwich last time out as they won for the first time since the opening day of the season.

Ismaila Sarr scored twice and is their talisman and best hope of remaining in the division this campaign.

Allan Saint-Maximin has made a very good start to the season and is probably the best bet in this fixture though.

Newcastle desperately need a win and they have a good record against Watford in recent years, losing just one of the last 10.

Brentford vs. Liverpool: Mohamed Salah
Brentford have made a superb start to their debut Premier League campaign and won 2-0 away at Wolves last weekend.

However on Saturday they face one of the four title contenders for the first time this season and an away win is probable.

Hard to look past Mohamed Salah who has made his best ever start (FPL points wise) to a league campaign.

Trent Alexander-Arnold is available again and is a good pick, along with Diogo Jota, who was frustrated in his blank vs. Palace last weekend.

Southampton vs. Wolves: Toni Livramento
Sunday’s first fixture is unlikely to see a great deal of goals as Southampton entertain Wolves.

In 10 games this season, the two sides have scored just six goals combined and a goalless draw at St. Mary’s wouldn’t be a surprise.

Toni Livramento has seen his price go up; however he remains a real bargain at less than 4.5m, especially with rumours of him starting out of position in midfield this season.

Arsenal vs. Tottenham: Aaron Ramsdale
Tottenham have just one goal from open play this season and they visit Arsenal on Sunday, who themselves have improved defensively in recent weeks.

Aaron Ramsdale appears to have edged out Bernt Leno from the Arsenal goal and the former Sheffield United man has registered back to back clean sheets.

Given Spurs’ troubles in front of goal this season, an Arsenal clean sheet is a good bet and Ramsdale is a good pick at 4.5m.

Crystal Palace vs. Brighton: Leonardo Trossard
Brighton travel to face closest rivals Crystal Palace in the Monday evening game, looking to build on their excellent start to the season.

Palace main goal threat this term has come from loanee Connor Gallagher and his ownership will increase when Palace’s fixtures get easier.

Leonardo Trossard is the best bet for Brighton; however I probably wouldn’t be signing players from either side ahead of this game.

GW6 Dream Team: Ramsdale; Livramento, Alexander-Arnold, Rudiger, Pereira; Salah, Jota, Gray; Ronaldo, Antonio, Vardy

GW5 Dream Team: Sanchez (1) Semedo (1) Williams (0) Tsimakis (5) Dias (6) Azpilicueta (6) Salah (24)(C), Jota (3) Sterling (3) Pepe (3) Bamford (5)
