Fantasy Premier League : Gameweek 6

How would I describe my last Gameweek you ask ? Yeah, erm not great, could have gone a lot better.
But no time for sour faces, let’s get back into it and have a look at how our team is looking :

My current Fantasy football team, on the bench : Wan-Bissaka, Dendoncker, Kelly


We got 44 points this week and thank you Salah & Pukki because if not it would have been disgraceful. Ahead of these next set of games there are three fixtures where I really see a clear winner :

    • Manchester City vs Watford
    • Everton vs Sheffield Utd
    • Arsenal vs Aston Villa

In all three games I’m backing the hosts to pick up three points. So we want to pick someone from one of these teams and I think a clear man to take out is Wolves man Jiménez. He’s had an okay start to the season but I think we can find someone better for this next gameweek.

Who’s our new arrival?

Well, interesting question me, by letting go of Jiménez plus the 1.1m we have in the bank we have 8.4m to splurge on a new striker, can’t afford Agüero (12.1m), Everton’s best players are in midfield, no good there and the only Arsenal forward available is Aubameyang (11.0m).

So what do we do now? Well, we could keep Jiménez and take out David Silva(7.4m), then we have 8.5m for a new midfielder, and that opens up some very nice choices. I see three posibilites : 

    • Bernardo Silva (7.8m)
    • Richarlison (8.0m)
    • Dani Ceballos (5.7m)

So, we’ve narrowed it down to three choices, Silva, great player, but hasn’t completed 90 min all season. Richarlison, really attacking midfielder, but is the most expensive and we already have one Everton midfielder ( Sigurdsson and I don’t like putting all my eggs in one basket). That leaves the very cheap and highly rated Spaniard, there’s just the small gamble to how long he plays but honestly for 5.7m there is no debate. Ceballos is my man and he slots in nicely into my midfield.

Transfer done! Here is my starting 11 for Gameweek 6 :

Updated team

 

These are the boys we are sending into battle this week.

Things to note :

  • Salah captain, I know they have a tough game at the Bridge but Chelsea have been conceding goals left, right & center so I expect him to have chances
  • Wan-Bissaka dropped, away to West Ham, very tough game for the Red Devils, I do not expect a clean sheet.

And we are done. We have an extra 2.8m for next week and a beast team going into it, let’s hope for that benchmark 50 points this week. Good luck to all, and have a lovely day!
