West Ham vs Tottenham Hotspur kicks off this week’s Fantasy Premier League on Saturday. Elsewhere on Saturday a struggling Crystal Palace face what looks an impossible trip to Manchester City, Burnley face Huddersfield, Everton host Bournemouth, in form Manchester United travel to Southampton, Stoke City host Chelsea, Watford look to bounce back at Swansea and Liverpool and Leicester is late kickoff on Saturday.
There is only one Premier League game this Sunday. It is a rematch of the top two teams in the Championship last season with Brighton hosting Newcastle United.
FPL GW6 finishes on Monday this week with Arsenal hosting West Brom.
Here are three players you should sign for this game week.
Gabriel Jesus (10.5)
The first is Gabriel Jesus. Manchester City have been in excellent form recently and are coming off the back of a 6-0 win vs Watford. One of City’s top performing players this season is Gabriel Jesus.
Jesus has managed four goals in five Premier League appearances this season and is forming a formidable strike partnership with Sergio Aguero. Jesus is available for just 10.5 on FPL. Compare this to the likes of Harry Kane (12.5), Lukaku (11.7) and even Jesus’s partner Aguero (11.5) then Jesus’s price is a real bargain. Especially when he is playing and scoring in nearly every game for City this season.
Another reason you should buy Jesus this week is that of City’s opponents this week. Manchester City are at home to Crystal Palace this week. Palace are the only team in the Premier League to not have picked up a single point this season. They have also broken the record for the longest start to a season without scoring a single goal.
So, with Manchester City top of the table and scoring goals for fun and Palace dead bottom and goalless, you would be mad not to have some City players in your team this week.
Christian Eriksen (9.7)
Tottenham Hotspur are having an absolute nightmare at ‘home’ this season since their move to Wembley. Luckily for Spurs fans, they’re away this week. So, you should actually put some of their players in your FPL team.
One man who should be top of your list is Christian Eriksen. Despite Spurs poor home form Eriksen has had a great start to the season. He’s scored one and assisted three already this season. The Dain is also 3rd in the FPL midfielder leaderboard which shows how well he is doing this season.
Furthermore, Spurs are facing West Ham this game week. West Ham have had a poor start to the season. They are currently in 17th place and they have also conceded 10 goals in the league this season. This is the joint most in the league which shows how many goals they’re leaking.
With West Ham conceding so many and Eriksen being on of Spurs top players this season, he is a must buy for game week six.
Mohamed Salah (9.2)
Salah is a must buy for the second time in the space of six weeks and for good reason. He is the top performing Liverpool player on FPL this season with 34 points. The winger is also second on the FPL midfielders list.
Salah has so far scored three and assisted two for Liverpool in just five league games. His pace makes him a nightmare for defences and given how attacking Liverpool are, you can be sure he is going to keep scoring plenty this season.
Another reason you should buy Salah is that Liverpool are playing Leicester this week. Leicester are not having the best start to a season. Most importantly though they have conceded nine goals in five games already this season. This shows that they are poor defensively and while Liverpool are awful at the back, you can be sure they will get goals against a team like Leicester.
You can also be sure Salah will be involved in those goals one way or another. Jurgen Klopp does like swap his team around and has benched Salah once already this season. But with fellow winger Sadio Mane still suspended, Salah is almost certain to start on Saturday.
