Fantasy Premier League: Gameweek 6 FPL tips, who to captain, transfers - Liverpool and Everton set for clash

Gameweek six FPL tips on who to captain and who to transfer in and out of your squad ahead of this weekend

This weekend plays host to the first full round of Premier League fixtures since the summer transfer window slammed shut.

Gameweek 6 could see a number of fresh faces feature in the Premier League - such as Manchester United’s Antony and Liverpool’s Arthur Melo, as well as a return to London with Chelsea for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - although his debut may not happen for a couple of weeks.

The weekend will also see Everton host Liverpool in the first Merseyside derby of the season, with the Toffees still searching for their first win of the camaoign.

Ahead of the opener at Goodison Park, here are all the latest FPL tips...

Who should I captain?

Erling Haaland is the man that should be everyone’s captain this week and it is likely that that could the case for a majority of the season.

The striker has nine goals in five games and two consecutive hat-tricks over the past week - and it seems unlikely that it will be Aston Villa that stop him.

Steven Gerrard’s side have suffered four defeats in five so far and I can see them rolling over quite easily for Haaland.

Another option is Harry Kane, whose impressive start has been somewhat overshadowed by the Norwegian’s tally.

Kane has four goals so far and will be confident of putting away a few more against Fulham on Saturday.

Transfers in

Luis Sinisterra

Luis Sinisterra was handed his first start for Leeds United against Everton on Tuesday and the Colombian definitely delivered.

Sinisterra bagged the second half equaliser and looked like a very exciting player raring to go.

After getting his first goal under his belt I can certainly see him excelling quickly under Jesse Marsch, starting with their trip to Brentford.

The Bees have failed to win in their last three matches and Leeds United will be desperate to capitalise on that.

Alexander Isak

Alexander Isak got his Newcastle United career off to a brilliant start as he scored the opener against Liverpool on Wednesday - also bagging a second that was then called for a tight offside.

The young striker looks an exciting signing for the Magpies and is likely to guarantee goals with the likes of Allan Saint-Maximin and Kieran Trippier feeding him.

With Newcastle facing Crystal Palace tomorrow they will know it will be a tough test but, with the home crowd behind him, Isak will hungry for more.

Daniel James

Daniel James secured a late loan move to Fulham last night and could potentially make his debut this weekend.

The addition of James to your fantasy team is a bit of a tongue in cheek move, just because he is facing Tottenham.

Antonio Conte’s side were linked with a move for the forward before the Cottagers but missed out on his signature - meaning he is almost guaranteed to score against them.

The Welshman also scored his first goal for Leeds United against Tottenham last November.

Transfers out

Martin Odegaard

Martin Odegaard has had a perfect start to the season and has bagged three goals in Arsenal’s first five fixtures.

The Norwegian has probably been a good servant to many FPL teams so far - however he could be set to miss out on the Gunners’ trip to Old Trafford.

Odegaard was substituted off against Aston Villa after a tackle by John McGinn and Mikel Arteta said he would have to be assessed ahead of this weekend.

Even if you wanted to risk including him in case he recovers before Sunday, a clash with Manchester United will certainly be a tough one given their current form.


Another in-form player that has picked up an injury is Leeds United’s Rodrigo.

The Spaniard was on fire at the start of the season and had scored four goals in three matches, however he was forced off against Everton with a dislocated shoulder.

It is thought Rodrigo could return after the international break, which means you will want to take him out of your team for at least a few weeks.
