Five tips to consider for Fantasy Premier League week six

Is this the real life? is this just fantasy?

Another weekend, another round of Premier League fixtures, another Friday night spent agonising over who to transfer in and out of your Fantasy Premier League team. God life's relentless.

Anyway, to ease the process of making your changes, here are some tips for gameweek six.

Josh King

Bournemouth are flying high at the minute. Their attacking trio of Josh King, Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser are scoring goals for fun, and should continue that form at the weekend as they take on Burnley. The Clarets have started the season slowly, suffering from Europa League induced fatigue. Take your pick of Bournemouth's attackers, but I would edge towards King, as he is the designated penalty taker. The Norwegian only costs £6.3m and has been selected by just 4.5% of managers.

Matt Doherty

Wolves' attacking 3-4-3 system has worked wonders so far this season, and their full-back partnership of Matt Doherty and Jonny have been key to unlocking opposition defences. They face a tough challenge this weekend as travel north to Old Trafford, but having secured a draw against Manchester City, Wolves will be confident in their ability to get a result against United. Doherty could prove to be an absolute bargain too; his price remains at just £4.4m and only 1.4% of FPL managers have selected him.

Aleksandar Mitrović

The Serb is off to a flying start at Fulham, continuing his form from his loan spell at Craven Cottage last season. With four goals already this season from 18 shots, 10 of which were on target, Mitrović boasts a 22% conversion rate, which any forward would be proud of. Fulham face a tough test in Watford this weekend, but Mitrović should win his fair share of aerial battles against Christian Kabasele and Craig Catchcart. He has been selected by 26% of managers, but when a £6.8m striker has accumulated 31 points already, that's hardly a shock.

James Tomkins

It should be no surprise that Crystal Palace's return to winning ways coincided with Tomkins' return to fitness. Ok, Wilfried Zaha's return played a bigger part in the result against Huddersfield, but Tomkins' importance should not be underestimated. Palace have only lost once when Tomkins starts alongside Mamadou Sakho, and that was against Liverpool this season. Palace's next few games are very winnable, and at £4.4m Tomkins could be a great addition to your side.

 

 

Eden Hazard

Hardly a bold call this, but Eden Hazard is very, very good. He's started the season brilliantly, scoring five goals in five games. Hazard's combination play down the left wing with Marcos Alonso overlapping and Mateo Kovačić underlapping has been Chelsea's deadliest weapon so far this season, and Chelsea's star man has already racked up 47 points. At £10.9m, he's also £2.1m cheaper than Mo Salah, who has had a slow start to the season. 45% of managers currently have Salah, trusting that he will return to his best form, but for now, Hazard seems the better pick.
