The Hard Tackle brings to you the suggestions for potential Fantasy Premier League picks as the sixth gameweek of the Premier League commences
THT Squad Fifth Gameweek Points: 55 Points
We earned a decent tally despite two of our players playing less than 10 minutes of football. Now, let us take a look at some of the picks that might interest the users.
Jordan Pickford (EVE) – GK – £5.0
Everton have finally found a solid goalkeeper and with his team in a rut of sorts, we could see some Pickford heroics against Bournemouth. The former Sunderland man has looked solid so far but has been powerless in 3 heavy defeats for the Toffees.
With Bournemouth coming to visit, it is time for Everton to string a run of positive results and Pickford will be at the very core of it. Expect Pickford to give you points for the coming weeks.
Sergio Aguero (MCI) – FWD – £11.6
While many might argue and go for Gabriel Jesus over Aguero, there is no denying that the Argentine has been in prime form of late. And Guardiola is unlikely to drop the player to the bench, especially with the visible on-field chemistry between Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero.
Manchester City face comparitively weaker opponents in their next few fixtures, with Chelsea the only prominent team in the next 5 matches and we could see Aguero tear up the Premier League, as he has done so often in his illustrious career.
Matt Richie (NEW) – MID – £6.0
A player that has looked class apart for Newcastle so far this season, Matt Richie should be in your team as soon as possible. Newcastle have managed to gain some momentum and if they are to gather more positive results, most of their creative acumen on the flanks will be provided by Richie and Atsu.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan (MUN) – MID – £8.5
Anyone who has seen Manchester United play this season can feel that this is going to be a special season for the Armenian playmaker. Already gathering goals and assists left and right, the player is expected to keep on going and is very likely to keep giving the users good points on average.
Michael Keane (EVE) – DEF – £5.5
While this will unlikely give you loads of points in a single gameweek, Michael Keane will be a solid pick for all users for the coming weeks. As mentioned above, Everton face a decent run-in over the coming gameweeks and defence often lays the foundation of victories.
We would recommend captaining Alexandre Lacazette, Harry Kane or Sergio Aguero as their captain. The Argentine is our choice for the present gameweek.
