The Premier League will be back with its Gameweek 6, with two mouthwatering fixtures in the form of Chelsea vs Manchester City and Manchester United vs Aston Villa. Along with Premier League, the FPL is also back as the managers look for the green arrow to jump higher. After a midweek Cup competition, there is a chance for rotation which should be kept in mind by the FPL Managers.
Here we take a look at our Top 5 picks for Gameweek 6 who are expected to perform well and rewards their owners.
Since the homecoming of Ronaldo was announced, the Portuguese were picked by almost 50% of FPL managers even before kicking the ball in the Premier League. However, when the stakes are high, Ronaldo steps up and that is what he did on his debut, scoring a brace and then adding another against West Ham.
It will be a high risk to leave one of the most popular picks of the FPL out of your team. Ronaldo is the kind of player who is fixture-proof and hence a home game against Aston Villa should deliver some goals. Along with being one of the top picks for this week, he is also one of the most popular captaincy candidates.
Arguably the best player in the season till now, Mohammed Salah should be a set and forget in the FPL team. A premium asset with high potential for returns, Salah faces a Brentford side who have not been at their best this season. Being the go-to man for the Liverpool side, Salah is expected to ger returns against the newly-promoted side.
Just like Ronaldo, Salah to is in the team of more than 50% of FPL managers so it will be a risky option to leave him out. A popular captaincy candidate, expect a big haul like the first gameweek.
Virgil Van Dijk
The Dutchmen, one of the key figures in Liverpool’s side was badly missed last season. The long-term injury affected the Reds defensively. However, now Van Dijk is back to lead the charge for Klopp’s side. Liverpool has not conceded a goal from open play this season, and Van Dijk has played an important role in that. After being rested in midweek, Van Dijk will return to the line-up against Brentford, a match with another high possibility for a clean sheet. The Dutchmen are also key from set-pieces, as seen from the assist in the last match for Mohammed Salah.
One of the differential sorts of pick for FPL Managers is Saint-Maximin. High chances creation with no returns has defined the Newcastle forward over the years but this might be the season where it changes. He was one of the most impressive players in the game against Leeds United and deservedly grabbed a goal.
Newcastle has a favorable fixture in Gameweek 6 against the defensively weak Watford side. Maximin, in the form that he is, should not be ruled out to get returns. A differential who is owned only by 12.1% of the FPL Managers with most of them transferring him in after his returns against Leeds United. Maximin could turn out to be the pick who will get you ahead in the private leagues.
One of the most impressive players from the start of the season, Said Benrahma has been on a roll. The Algerian has been one of the leading players for the impressive West Ham. Having scored 3 goals in the first 6 games to add to his 2 assists, the midfielder has become one of the players to watch out for.
A game against Leeds united provides Benrahma the chance to extend his tally. With Antonio coming back after his suspension, it only increases the chances of Benrahma’s attacking output. A weakened Leeds side with injuries to key players gives Hammers the advantage in this fixture.
