Gameweek 6 Captain Choice
The difficult captain choices aren’t subsiding. With Liverpool at home it is naturally difficult to look past Mohamed Salah for the captaincy. However, with Salah’s consecutive blanks, combined with the form of Sergio Aguero and Eden Hazard FPL managers now have quite the conundrum.
The bookmakers have the Egyptian as the most likely goalscorer and his other stats, shots, chances created, positioning all make for good reading. As a result he is our captain choice for Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 6. With that said we wouldn’t blame anyone who chose to go elsewhere.
Hazard is of course coming off a hat-trick and is playing a West Ham defence that isn’t fancied. The fact he hasn’t travelled for Chelsea’s Europa League game tonight only adds to his captaincy appeal.
Elsewhere, the on form Aguero travels to relegation favorites Cardiff. He also didn’t start in European action and therefore is more likely to start on Saturday.
Shockingly handing the armband to Harry Kane is less fashionable these days but even away to Brighton the bookmakers have him as 50% to score.
All of the above are fine captain picks. On top of this though Romelu Lukaku and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang both have home good home fixtures. Both of them are also around the 50% mark to score. This could result in a large variation of captains for Gameweek 6!
Gameweek 6 – Transfers In and Out
Eden Hazard’s and Ryan Fraser’s excellent start to the season has seen them, by far, the most transferred in players for Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 6. Their prices have already increased but it wouldn’t be surprising to see them increase further before the transfer deadline. Romelu Lukaku is another player we have selected to bring in. He looks sharp, certain to start and Man Utd’s fixtures look good in the coming weeks.
