FPL 2023-24 – Gameweek 6 Goalkeepers

-

It’s proving to be a tough season when it comes to selecting the right FPL goalkeeper, but there were a few standout names in Gameweek 5.

The first goalless draw of the Premier League season yielded ten-point returns for both Neto (£4.5m) and Robert Sanchez (£4.5m), with the Bournemouth and Chelsea goalkeepers sharing the joint-highest gameweek score in their position. For Neto, it was his second double-figure point score of the season after his penalty save against Liverpool in Gameweek 2, while it was Sanchez’ third clean sheet in the last three gameweeks.

Former Brentford stopper David Raya (£4.8m) made his Arsenal debut in Gameweek 5, and promptly kept a clean sheet against Everton to justify Gunners boss Mikel Arteta’s decision to start him in place of Aaron Ramsdale (£5.0m). Raya picked up two bonus points to register an eight-point return overall, and given the fact he has dropped £0.2m in value this season, he represents excellent value for money should he keep his place. A word of warning to prospective owners though; Arteta has since spoke of his temptation to make goalkeeper substitutions during matches, which is not what FPL managers want to hear!

With a kind run of fixtures ahead, Newcastle assets are becoming increasingly popular in the FPL community and Nick Pope (£5.5m), off the back of a clean sheet against Brentford in Gameweek 5, is likely to see his ownership increase in the coming weeks.

The final clean sheet of the weekend belonged to Fulham, which saw Bernd Leno (£4.6m) pick up another respectable return. Despite failing to gain any FPL points in Fulham’s previous fixture against Man City, no other Premier League goalkeeper has scored more than Leno’s 25 points at this stage of the season. The Cottagers take on Crystal Palace in Gameweek 6.

It would be remiss not to mention Alphonse Areola’s (£4.1m) performance in the 1-3 defeat to Man City. The West Ham stopper was largely responsible for keeping the score respectable with his ten saves helping him finish on four FPL points.
