Gameweek 6 Daily Fantasy Football Tips For Fantasy Premier League
Gameweek 6 Daily Fantasy Football Tips For Fantasy Premier League.
jamieFPL returns with his Gameweek 6 Daily Fantasy Football Tips For Fantasy Premier League, this week providing a fixture-by-fixture analysis.
Manchester United vs. Leicester (Sat, 12:30)
Jose Mourinho enters this fixture under ‘severe pressure’ according to a number of news outlets following back-to-back losses, despite starting the season with three consecutive wins. Both teams have scored in each of their last five meetings and Leicester will be looking to pick up their first win at Old Trafford since 1998.
Wayne Rooney is reportedly going to be dropped to the bench for this fixture after a poor performance against Watford last week, and against Northampton in the League Cup. Leicester’s new signing Islam Slimani is expected to start alongside Vardy following his brace last weekend, with Shinji Okazaki providing options from the bench after his double against Chelsea mid-week.
One to watch: Ibrahimovic – Four goals in five matches.
Differential: Slimani – Brace last week, early kickoff = lower ownership %.
Defender: Smalling – Two headed goal attempts last GW.
Bournemouth vs. Everton (Sat, 15:00)
Bournemouth have lost both of their last two matches, conceding seven goals in the process. Everton on the other hand have looked revitalised under Ronald Koeman and remain unbeaten in the Premier League this season. The Toffees are yet to lose against Bournemouth and have scored at least two goals in each of those matches.
Jack Wilshire had a debut to forget for Bournemouth, he failed to control the midfield and Man City smashed home four before he was subbed on the 67th minute. Whether he’ll start in Gameweek 6 is unknown. Everton should lineup unchanged, a few of their fringe players were given a chance in the League Cup but failed to impress and lost 2-0 to Norwich.
One to watch: Lukaku – Back in form with four goals in two matches.
Differential: Bolasie – Creative & a goal threat.
Defender: Baines – On pens and averaging one goal attempt per game.
Liverpool vs. Hull (Sat, 15:00)
Liverpool have shown they’re no pushovers this season having already beaten Arsenal, Leicester and Chelsea. Opposition Hull had a positive opening couple of games but have seen that form start to fade and last weekend were dominated by Arsenal. Liverpool have only won one of their last six previous encounters against Hull, so it’d be unfair to write off the Tigers straight away.
Loris Karius made his debut in the League Cup against Derby and could displace Simon Mignolet between the sticks this weekend. Meanwhile, Daniel Sturridge and Roberto Firmino are still competing for the lone-striker role with the latter looking the favourite. Hull still have six players out injured and the biggest question is whether record-signing Ryan Mason will get the nod ahead of David Meyler.
One to watch: Firmino – Scored a brace last time out.
Differential: Snodgrass – Three goals in five, on all set-pieces.
Defender: Davies – Second highest no. of headed goal attempts (5) this season.
Middlesbrough vs. Spurs (Sat, 15:00)
Tottenham are one of three teams to remain unbeaten in the Premier League this season and enter this fixture on the back of a 5-0 win in the cup. Middlesbrough are without a win in four, losing back-to-back league games. In the past Spurs have struggled on their travels to the Riverside winning just once, however the last time they met their in the league was 2008.
Harry Kane picked up an ankle injury against Sunderland which could see him sidelined for up to eight weeks, summer signing Vincent Janssen is expected to stand-in. Meanwhile, Danny Rose is still sidelined with a thigh problem and Erik Lamela could be rested after playing a full 90 midweek. Aitor Karanka isn’t expected to make any big changes.
One to watch: Alli – Back among the action with a goal and assist in his last two.
Differential: Janssen – Yet to score but leading a dangerous front line.
Defender: Alderweireld – Eight goal attempts this season, due a goal.
Stoke vs. West Brom (Sat, 15:00)
Stoke are in a terrible run of form and the bookies currently have Mark Hughes as odds on to be the first manager sacked. They’ve conceded four goals on three separate occasions this season and this week host West Brom who recently put four past West Ham. This fixture has proved low-scoring in the past, with just three goals in the last four matches between the two sides at Stoke.
Xherdan Shaqiri could make his first Premier League start of the season after returning from Injury. Nacer Chadli was the highest scoring player last Gameweek after scoring and assisting twice against West Ham. It looks like it’s too soon to see Chris Brunt and Jonathan Leko who are being eased back in with minutes in the reserves.
One to watch: Chadli – Two goals and two assists last gameweek.
Differential: Arnautovic – Two goals in two games (all competitions)
Defender: McAuley – Heart of the Baggies defence. Attacks set-pieces.

Sunderland vs. Crystal Palace (Sat, 15:00)
Sunderland are yet to win a match in the Premier League this season and are really in need of getting some points on the board. Opposition Crystal Palace are now unbeaten in their last three and last week put four past Stoke city. The Black Cats have lost just one of their last six home meetings with Eagles so there is hope, but most would expect Palace to edge this.
Patrick van Aanholt was withdrawn from the team for last week’s clash against Spurs and it’s still unknown whether he’ll return to the lineup for this weekend. Wahbi Khazri and Jermaine Defoe are still doubtful. Scott Dann was forced off with a hamstring strain midweek which has ruled him out until next month. Elsewhere, Pape Souare is out with a long-term injury and Yohan Cabaye is expected to return after playing 90 minutes midweek.
One to watch: Townsend – A goal and assist last weekend.
Differential: Benteke – The figurehead of Palace’s attack.
Defender: Pickford – 20 saves in his last three matches.
Swansea vs. Man City (Sat, 15:00)
Pep Guardiola’s side have won all five of their opening Premier League matches this season and won all nine of their matches in all competitions. A certain Sergio Aguero returns from suspension this week, further bolstering City’s unstoppable attack. Swansea have won only one of their 11 competitive meetings with Man City and this weekend have the arduous task of improving that record.
Sergio Aguero is back following his three-match suspension and will more than likely replace Kelechi Iheanacho as the lone striker. Yaya Toure and Nolito are both serving suspensions, whilst David Silva and Fabian Delph are injury doubts. The only injury concern for Francesco Guidolin is Nathan Dyer.
One to watch: Aguero – The FPL god returns.
Differential: Sane – An alternative route into the widely owned City attack.
Defender: Kolarov – Attacks the wing.
Arsenal vs. Chelsea (Sat, 17:30)
After losing to Liverpool on the opening day of the season, Arsenal have since gone six games unbeaten, winning four. Conte’s unbeaten start as Blues manager came to an abrupt end at home to Liverpool but they bounced back with a 4-2 win over Leicester in the League Cup. The Gunners have struggled at home to Chelsea in the past, failing in win their last five, losing three in the process. Arsenal will hope to make home advantage count, but Chelsea have the know-how to win here.
Arsene Wenger could name the same starting XI that dominated Hull 4-1 last week which would mean starting Granit Xhaka on the bench despite scoring in back-to-back fixtures. The likes of Per Mertesacker, Danny Welbeck and Aaron Ramsey are unlikely to be seen again until after the international break. John Terry is a doubt for Chelsea but will be assessed up until the deadline. Cesc Fabregas will be hoping for a start after his brace in the League Cup, but may have to settle for his familiar place on the bench.
One to watch: Costa – Five goals in five league matches.
Differential: Walcott – Two goals and an assist last week.
Defender: Ivanovic – Very attacking full-back.
West Ham vs. Southampton (Sun, 16:00)
West Ham have been in terrible form this season and until their 1-0 victory over Accrington in the League Cup, had lost four consecutive matches, conceding at least three goals per game. Southampton seem to be finding their stride and have won their last three games without conceding a goal. Charlie Austin has hit form and looks like he could be an important player for the Saints this season.
Arthur Masuaku came off injured in their midweek League Cup fixture and has been ruled out for at least six weeks. Alvaro Arbeloa who made his debut in the League Cup could make his first Premier League appearance since May 2009 in cover. Charlie Austin’s form should ensure him a starting spot alongside Shane Long, whilst Nathan Redmond could drop to the bench.
One to watch: Antonio – Five goals in five matches.
Differential: Austin – Opened his league goal scoring account last week.
Defender: Van Dijk – Attacks corners for Southampton.
Burnley vs. Watford (Mon, 20:00)
Burnley have lost three of their last four matches and find themselves just a point above the bottom three. Watford on the other hand are high in confidence after beating Manchester United 3-1 in their last match. The last four meetings between these two sides have resulted in a draw, the last time they met at Turf Moor was three years ago, in a fixture that ended 0-0.
Burnley will most likely revert to their 4-4-2 formation after their 4-5-1 experiment against Leicester resulted in a 3-0 defeat. This would mean Marney or Hendricks dropping out of the midfield to accommodate Sam Vokes up top. Watford are without Daryl Janmaat who could be out for three weeks with a shoulder injury. Nordin Amrabat is the favourite to replace him.
One to watch: Capoue – The man, the myth, the legend.
Differential: Pereyra – A goal and two assists from three appearances.
Defender: Holebas – Attacking defender with a goal under his belt.
