GW5 of Premier League football was another superb week of English Football building up the anticipation for GW6. It finished with Chelsea and Liverpool at the top of the table.
It was a disappointing week for the owners of Trent and Robertson as both were unavailable for Liverpool. FPL GW5 had the highest score of 144 points. While the average score was 55 points.
The Football Express team managed a decent 67 points which were above average could have been even higher if Trent and James had played for their respective teams.
Leeds have a very good run of fixtures after GW5 that could turn their fortunes around from the upcoming GW6. Bamford also has a very good run of fixtures which makes him a must-have. Bamford just needs a bit of time and if he gets going we all know what he is capable of from the last season.
Antonio is also back after receiving a ban last week. Whom many of the FPL managers were removed from the team in GW5 and in for GW6. Moreover, Antonio does have a bit of a rough patch of fixtures coming but the form he is in it is really difficult to ignore Antonio.
With the arrival of Ronaldo and the quick increase in his price after scoring in two consecutive games for United. Therefore, causing an increase in his price. There is a difficult patch of fixtures coming for Ronaldo. As United is going to face Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, and Tottenham after GW8.
The GW6 is a week Leicester must be targetted as they face Burnley at home. Burnley have been poor lately. Chelsea, on the other hand, face Manchester City who have come from a previous draw against Southampton, and Chelsea making a statement win against Spurs. This matchup will be really interesting from both the FPL point of view as well as the excitement point of view.
The other interesting game coming up is that of Spurs and Arsenal a North London Derby recent turnaround of form in Arsenal’s game could make it exciting and Spurs also who recently come from loss would looking to win this game and move forward.
These are the picks by percentage in every position by the top 100 FPL managers. The most picked player in the team is Mohammed Salah with Cristiano Ronaldo and Sanchez being the other two top picks.
TOP Captaincy Choices for GW6 After Their Performances Upto GW5 :
Jamie Vardy: The foxes forward is the main goal scorer for them getting 3 goals and an assist in 5 games with Leicester facing Burnley in GW6 who are not much impressive in defence lately conceding 9 goals in 5 games this could be an amazing chance for Vardy to bring back on track Leicester’s campaign.
Mohammed Salah: As usual every week the Egyptian King is always on top of his games getting goals and assist for Liverpool. Liverpool facing Brentford in GW6 though Brentford is a good defensive side. Salah could be the key in unlocking their defence for them.
Cristiano Ronaldo: The Portuguese had an amazing second coming to Old Trafford making it 3 goals in 2 games. Manchester United are going to face Aston Villa in the upcoming GW6. Aston Villa though had an incredible game in GW5 keeping a clean sheet against an in-form Everton side rising the stakes for GW6. The game against Villa would be challenging for Ole’s United to get past the Aston Villa defence.
