FPL Gameweek 6 Review
This week was my lowest points tally of the season so far with 51 points. However, it must have been generally quite a low scoring week as this was enough for a small green arrow from 75k to 67k overall rank.
A captaincy fail from Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.7m) in a disappointing Manchester United display was perhaps the main reason for my low score.
I had decent returns elsewhere in my front seven though. This saved my Gameweek, including a well-overdue goal from Liverpool's Diogo Jota (£7.7m),
Here was my performance in full:
FPL Gameweek 7 Preview
Here is the Hub Fixture Ticker for the next four Gameweeks. It's ordered from best to worst by opponent difficulty (the traditional fixture ticker view):
With the Manchester City clash out of the way, Chelsea finally go into that stretch of good looking fixtures. In fact, they're pretty good now for several weeks, beyond the four Gameweeks shown above - so that is clearly of interest to me!
Manchester City also have the Liverpool match-up this week before they also embark on a run of better fixtures. At the other end of the scale, notable teams such as Brighton, Liverpool and Manchester United have sailed into murkier waters.
Current Plans - FPL Gameweek 7 Team Reveal
This is how I'm currently set up heading into Gameweek 7, prior to making any transfers:
This week was never going to be ideal with my triple Liverpool up against Manchester City. However, at the same time, I don't really want to lose any of them so I may just have to suck it up this week.
There are better fixtures elsewhere in the squad. Yet Raphinha (£6.5m) is a worry yet again having come off with some sort of injury again.
Meanwhile, the disappointing Luke Shaw (£5.5m) also appears to have picked up an injury as well as Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.6m).

My FPL Most Wanted List - Gameweek 7 Team Reveal
This is where I identify the FPL players who I am currently most considering bringing into my team. I'll also highlight who might make way for them.
I update this list each week and this helps me to formulate a rough mental shortlist of potential moves.
New: Antonio Rüdiger (£5.6m) - looks the safest route into the Chelsea defence with that great run of fixtures now. He's at a reasonable price too and capable of the odd goal.
Out-list: Luke Shaw (£5.4m) - has been a big disappointment so far. On top of that, the fixtures are becoming tricky and he might be injured.
Luke Ayling (£4.5m) - here's one that I am indifferent towards. This is because Leeds defence has been poor (not helped by a myriad of injuries of course).
Removed: Ismaila Sarr (£6.2m) - who came into my team with a goal this week.
Demarai Gray (£5.8m) - nothing wrong with him. He's still ticking along but for my team it was either him or Sarr.
Out-list: None (although Diogo Jota (£7.7m) is now more of a rotation risk with Roberto Firmino coming back to full fitness so that's maybe one to watch).
Romelu Lukaku (£11.7m) - he's started predictably well for Chelsea with three goals in five. Those good fixtures are finally here - where do I sign up?
Transfer Plans - FPL Gameweek 7 Team Reveal
I will have two free transfers and £1.5m in the bank this week. My Gameweek 7 transfers are very much linked to the timing of my Wildcard...
