It was a disappointing last week for managers including me who captained Harry Kane as he blanked yet again at Wembley, whereas the managers who captained Lukaku or even owned Sergio Aguero would be hoping that their consistent point return continues. Nevertheless, it's better to forget the previous gameweek and look ahead for an exciting fresh, new gameweek-6 filled with lot of hopes.
As usual in this article I will be listing the players to watch-out for this gameweek based on their price, points scoring possibility, few captaincy choices to consider and lastly the best gameweek-6 Lineup. So, let’s begin!
First up the Goalkeepers:
- David De Gea (£5.5)
- Ederson Moraes (£5.5)
- Petr Cech (£5.0)
- Lukasz Fabianski (£4.5)
- Nick Pope (£4.5)
De Gea faces an average Southampton attack , Ederson faces a Crystal Palace side who are yet to score a goal this season. Tom Heaton’s injury has paved way for Nick Pope who faces Huddersfield at home and considering Burnley's strong defence a cleansheet is likely an outcome.
- Marcos Alonso (£7.1)
- Eric Bailly (£6.1)
- Ben Davies (£5.7)
- Saed Kolasinac (£6.0)
- Kyle Walker (£6.5)
Manchester United’s defence is indeed turning out to be a reliable source of points especially and owning any one defender from the United’s side is good. Saed Kolasinac, Kyle Walker are both looking in good form. Ben Davies missed his last game due to a knock and may well play Spurs next game against West Ham. As I say on any given day owning Wing-Backs are the best options.
- Christian Eriksen (£9.7)
- Henrikh Mkhitaryan (£8.5)
- Kevin De Bruyne (£10.0)
- Mohamed Salah (£9.2)
- Matt Ritchie (£6.0)
Henrikh Mkhitaryan is turning out to be a consistent points provider for his owners and looks in red hot form. Kevin De Bruyne is beginning to provide consistent point returns. Mohamed Salah looks to be the best Midfielder option to own from Liverpool and is basically involved in most of their attacks. Matt Ritchie had an excellent game against Stoke and him continuing his form along with Pascal Groß of Brighton would be good options to consider especially in the £6.0 midfield bracket. Christian Eriksen needs to maintain his consistency in points return but transferring him out this week would be insane.
- Sergio Aguero (£11.6)
- Romelu Lukaku (£11.7)
- Harry Kane (£12.5)
- Alvaro Morata (£10.2)
- Jamie Vardy (£8.5)
- Roberto Firmino (£8.7)
Undoubtedly the star man from Last gameweek was Sergio Aguero. Most of the managers are dumping their other premium forwards inorder to accommodate Aguero in their side, his performances this week may well answer whether it was the right decision or not. Romelu Lukaku is in cruise control for The Red Devils but Harry Kane isn’t managing to is score at Wembley for Spurs is a concern for his owners but he faces West Ham away from home this week and may well be on the scoresheet this time.
Obvious Pick: If you own Sergio Aguero then he is the undoubtedly the obvious pick this week considering his form and fixture but the second most preferred obvious choice would be Romelu Lukaku.
Second Choice: Despite of having a good goal scoring record against West Ham, Harry Kane has still not managed to convince me to captain him this week as he is not managing to maintain his consistent goal scoring form.
Differential Pick: Kevin De Bruyne
Risk Pick: Mohamed Salah
Team for Gameweek 6 *:
Defenders: Bailly, Kolasinac, Walker
Midfielders: De Bruyne, Salah, Mkhitaryan, Eriksen
Forwards: Lukaku (C), Kane (V), Morata
*This squad does not follow the budget of £100 million. *
