Mohamed Salah

It may be a new Fantasy Premier League season, but it seems to be the same old reliable Mohamed Salah.

Though holding a lusty starting value of 12.0 on opening weekend, Liverpool’s talismanic forward continues to brings the points in their droves for managers, even when the Reds fail to tick – case in point their 7-2 hammering by Aston Villa.

Hovering around the 47% ownership mark, Salah is the third-most owned player in the game still, now at a value of 12.3, with six goals already after just five games – twice notching a brace.

As an increasingly beleaguered Sheffield United travel to Anfield on Saturday evening, the Egyptian will be licking his lips.

Having played only an hour in Amsterdam against Ajax in midweek also, Salah is poised to cause havoc for the Blades and must surely be a strong contender for the captain’s armband this weekend.


Son Heung-min

It seems those writing Tottenham Hotspur’s obituary may have jumped the gun a little.

Having begun the new campaign looking wholly out of sorts, the Lilywhites now look an attacking menace to Premier League defences once more, and Son Heung-min has been central to those efforts.

On the subject of owners – similarly to Salah – the South Korean wing/forward is now just .2% away from being in half of all teams in the game, for no false reasons.

After back-to-back double-figure points hauls, Son is now playing a more advanced role ahead of Harry Kane, with striker dropping deeper to feed the gambolling attacker.

Looking back to his four-goal show on the road to Southampton in Gameweek 2, another road trip to Burnley offers the seven-goal and two-assist Son another appetising chance of rich spoils in Gameweek 6.


Ross Barkley

What a difference the new season has made for Aston Villa.

Notching their fourth win out of four to start the term, the Birmingham outfit remain the only team with a 100% record so far – albeit with a game less under their belts.

Having made a number of key recruits this summer, it has however, been their latest one in Ross Barkley, who could become a fantasy hit this season.

Grabbing a deserved late winner against the Foxes last Sunday evening, the England international looks set to thrive on loan from Stamford Bridge in a number ten role, alongside Jack Grealish and John McGinn.

Defensively, the Villans looks far more stable thus far, but also have built an attacking verve up front and through midfield, where Barkley has seen his time limited in West London previously.

With only a handful of owners still to snag onto Barkley, a visiting Leeds United presents the perfect opportunity for the fruits of Gameweek 6.

Netting in his last two outings, the Whites could present Barkley with further gifts.


Leandro Trossard

For Gameweek 6’s next selection, we turn to a man who has run into serious Premier League misfortune of late in Leandro Trossard.

Without a goal since the opening day of the season, the Belgian nevertheless has two assists to his name and his goal drought could be turned around this weekend.

For any that watched his impressive showing for Brighton against Manchester United at the AMEX last month, Trossard could on another day have had a hat-trick to his name, but for a battered and bruised woodwork.

With slim pickings to speak of last time out against Crystal Palace, Gameweek 6 however, sees a still adapting West Brom venture south.

The Seagulls are again proving tough nuts to crack at home, but in Trossard, Brighton have a man who is ready, willing and able, to expose the Baggies’ back line.


Punt of the week: Nelson Semedo

Our weekly punt of the week for Gameweek 6 falls at the feet of Nelson Semedo.

Having filled the boots of Matt Doherty at right wing-back for Wolves this season, the latest Portuguese arrival into Molineux, has not been met with whole-hearted unity within the Club’s fanbase.

Known for his defensive blunders for Barcelona, Semedo however, is a remaining threat going forward.

Coming close to a goal on debut against Fulham, the defender grabbed his first clean sheet away to Leeds and against an unpredictable Newcastle, wont be shy of popping up on the right this weekend.

Much like Doherty signified Wolves’ right-sides roams last term, Semedo looks set to follow suit this term.

Although as documented, posers remain of his ability in defence, going forward at least, Semedo may just be the ticket in putting the wolf amongst the Magpies on Sunday afternoon.


Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 6 deadline is Friday, 18:30 UK time.
