Fantasy Premier League tips – Gameweek 6

The Everton front man has been a real handful for defenders this season – image from

Last week, we did pretty well by backing Everton, so we’re going to go crazy and put our faith in David Moyes’ side once again. Ok, you may be thinking it’s far from controversial to be encouraged by the Toffees’ early season form, but here are a few words you’d never expect anyone in their right mind to utter: we like the look of Liverpool at the moment.

José Reina is quite possibly the worst goalkeeper in the Premier League and we’d advise going nowhere near the Liverpool defence right now. He really needs some competition. But now that that particular rant is out of the way, we’ll take a look at Brendan Rogers’ attacking options. The Reds looked impressive against Manchester United last week (who, let’s face it, make Aston Villa look like title contenders at the minute) and we think the only bright sparks in Liverpool’s season so far Raheem Sterling (£4.6m) and Luis Suárez (£9.4m) could be worth a punt. Surely they’ll be able to get off the mark at Norwich on Saturday? If not, even they should have enough to dispose of Tony Pulis’ cloggers next week.

After that, frankly, dangerous bet, let’s focus on Liverpool’s Merseyside neighbours Everton. David Moyes’ side is playing some fantastic football right now and Marouane Fellani (£7.2m) has looked unplayable at times. Given their next two fixtures against Southampton and Wigan, we think they’ve got more goals in them, and would look to bring in Steven Pienaar (£6.7m) and of course Nikica Jelavić (£8.4m).

Others worth considering

West Brom have surprised a few this season and Gareth McAuley (£5.3m) is certainly racking up the points. He won’t cost the earth and the Baggies certainly have nothing to fear in games against Villa and QPR.

We pointed him out last week, and it’d be dangerous to ignore the form of Hatem Ben Arfa (£7.9). Meanwhile, we’re giving up on backing Bob Matthews’ shocking Chelsea side. Arsenal really ought to shine against this nonsense of a team at the Emirates in Saturday’s early kick off. As such, we’d look at getting on the mercurial Santi Cazorla (£9.3m). Don’t ignore Lukas Podolski (£8.6m), mind!

Finally, he will score again. Demba Demba Ba (£7.9m).
