The Premier League has reached gameweek six, which means that we are really starting to get a sense of who is performing and who is not. The less said about our gameweek five picks the better, although Richarlison did pick up an assist at least. We are hoping to do better in gameweek six, so here are our gameweek six picks:
Angus Gunn (Southampton, £4.5m)
The Southampton goalkeeper looks to be value for money, as he is a goalkeeper that makes a lot of saves and will keep the odd clean sheet. The former Norwich goalkeeper has now kept clean sheets in two of his last three matches.
The Saints face a home game with south coast neighbours Bournemouth this evening. The Cherries are pretty prolific in front of goal. However, they tend to struggle away from home, so Gunn may just be in with a good chance of continuing a good run of points-scoring of late.
Todd Cantwell (Norwich, £4.9m)
The young midfielder has established himself as one of the best budget midfielder players in FPL. He started the season at just £4.5m but is now valued at £4.9m, which shows just how impressive his displays have been for the Canaries in the top-flight.
He scored his second league goal of the season against Manchester City last time out and has also produced two assists. There are no players in his current price range that can match his return this season.
The fact that Norwich’s next four games, including a trip to Burnley this weekend, are rated just two in the FPL ranking, Cantwell looks like a no brainer for most FPL bosses.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£5.8m)
The young striker scored on his recall to the Everton starting line-up last time out in a 3-1 defeat at Bournemouth. It was his first goal in 13 Premier League outings, but he has at least looked dangerous in the Toffees recent matches.
The undeniable attraction of Calvert-Lewin is his price. He is one of very few players available in his price range who are starting in the Premier League. He is not guaranteed of being a starter after the arrival of Moise Kean from Juventus. However, he is a good short-term option.
A home game against top-flight new boys Sheffield United offers the much-maligned Calvert-Lewin the chance to pick up more points.
Ashley Barnes (Burnley, £6.7m)
The experienced forward started the season in good goalscoring form scoring in the first three Premier League matches of the season. However, he has failed to score in his last two matches.
There is a caveat to the last game against Brighton in that he was carrying a knock before the game. The forward now seems fully fit and a home game with Norwich this weekend, a game the Clarets are favourites to win, kicks off a nice run of games for Sean Dyche’s side.
After the home game against Norwich, the team from Lancashire face Aston Villa away from home and then a home game with travel sick Everton. At £6.7million, the 29-year-old still represents good value.
Who will be the ones to watch in gameweek six of FPL?
