Written by: Ajay A K
Marcos Alonso is the second highest grossing player in the game this season.
Gameweek 5 saw Liverpool overcome Tottenham Hotspur in a thrilling encounter in Wembley. The result saw the Reds maintain their hundred per cent start to the Premier League along with Chelsea who won comfortably against Cardiff City thanks to an Eden Hazard hat-trick. Watford who started the Gameweek with a hundred per cent record stumbled against Manchester United while Arsenal and Manchester City made light work of Newcastle and Fulham respectively. West Ham managed to get their first points of the campaign by beating Everton in Goodison Park, with Andriy Yarmolenko grabbing a brace.
Gameweek 5 Review
Gameweek 5 also churned out disappointing results with most of the new players providing small amount of points. In defence captain Marcos Alonso, Robertson and Jeffrey Schlupp provided only a combined total of 7 points. The midfield turned out to be even more disappointing with All four of the starters giving only 8 points. Any semblance of recovery came from the attack with the three strikers providing a combined 13 points. David De Gea managed a respectable 3 points which was better than Mathew Ryan, with 1 point, on the bench. However, the biggest let-down came in the form of Aron-Wan Bissaka who got 9 points with maximum bonus. Jeffrey Schlupp coming on in the 90th minute for Crystal Palace against the Terriers meant that the Crystal Palace full-back stayed in the bench only.
It will be interesting to see how they turn up to perform
Gameweek 6 Transfers
Jeffrey Schlupp featured only for one minute in Crystal Palace’s win over Huddersfield. He can be replaced by Steve Cook. Steve Cook has been performing well for the Cherries and has a set of very easy fixtures coming up for the next Gameweek. Other possible replacements for Schlupp are Wolverhampton’s Boly or Matt Doherty and Brighton’s Duffy.

Gameweek 6 Line-up
The formation is changed to a 4-3-3. David De Gea remains as first choice in goal, with Mathew Ryan present as cover in the bench. In defence top scoring defender Marcos Alonso is accompanied by Andrew Robertson and Aron- Wan Bissaka along with newcomer Steve Cook. James Tarkowski sits on the bench this Gameweek. Mohamed Salah and Lucas Moura occupy the midfield along with Richarlison who returns after missing two Premier League Gameweeks. Pedro, who is recovering from a shoulder injury and Ruben Neves who has a tough test against Manchester United drop to the bench. All three strikers start with Aleksandar Mitrovic made captain because of his good form. Sergio Aguero, the vice-captain and Callum Wilson are capable scorers as well.
Gameweek 6 doesn’t have any fixture that stands out but most eyes will be focussed on Arsenal’s tough matchup against Everton. The return of Richarlison is sure to boost Marco Silva’s team and they have the talent to take the game to Emery’s men.
