FPL 2023-24 – Gameweek 6 Fixture Analysis


Gameweek 5 saw both teams find the net in over half of the ten fixtures played. It began with Liverpool’s 1-3 victory over Wolves which saw the Reds come from behind at Molineux. Saturday afternoon saw Fulham extend Luton’s losing run in the Premier League, Brighton out-play and defeat Man Utd at Old Trafford, Spurs stun Sheffield Utd with a stoppage time turnaround and Man City also come from behind to win at West Ham.

Less goals could be found the following day however, as Bournemouth and Chelsea began by playing out a 0-0 draw. It looked like Everton’s clash with Arsenal could go the same way, but the Gunners grabbed a second half winner to pick up all three points. Lastly, Nottingham Forest could only draw 1-1 at home to Burnley on Monday night.

As we start whittling down the hours towards the Gameweek 6 deadline of 13:30 on Saturday, here are the latest round of Premier League fixtures and which appear most eye-catching for FPL bosses.

Key Gameweek 6 Fixture Ramifications

A number of fixtures immediately generate excitement among the fantasy community, one of which takes place at the Etihad Stadium. The last time Nottingham Forest travelled to Man City for a Premier League match, Pep Guardiola’s side thrashed them by six goals to nil. Erling Haaland (£14.1m) bagged a hat-trick that night and may well find himself in the goals again this time round. FPL managers are falling over themselves to transfer Julian Alvarez (£6.9m) in and he too, could gain significant success in Gameweek 6. Then you have the likes of Rodri (£5.7m), Phil Foden (£7.6m) and Jeremy Doku (£6.5m) in midfield.

Despite the poor recent form of Man Utd, both Marcus Rashford (£8.9m) and Bruno Fernandes (£8.4m) are likely to retain their respective ownerships for one more gameweek as the Red Devils travel to Burnley, who are still without a clean sheet in the Premier League this season.

A cracking North-London derby is in prospect between Arsenal and Spurs. Plenty of midfielders from the Gunners stand out from an FPL point of view, whilst Heung-Min Son (£9.1m) is always a huge danger in these games and the Gameweek 4 hat-trick will hope to have his say here. On the flip-side, both Bukayo Saka(£8.7m) and Martin Odegaard (£8.5m) scored in Arsenal’s midweek Champions League triumph over PSV and could well back that up against their bitter rivals.

Elsewhere Brighton host Bournemouth in what should mark a return to the starting line-up for Evan Ferguson(£6.0m) depending on his fitness. Liverpool host West Ham and Chelsea take on Aston Villa in what should prove a couple of excellent contests.
