FPL General's Gameweek 6 Points

Like many, Gameweek 6 was a bad one for me. 39 points saw me drop from 172k overall to 356k with my total points for the season now 372. Hopefully the troops will bounce back in style this weekend!

Aaron Ramsdale (£4.9m) continues to frustrate in goal but I’m reluctant to use a precious transfer to remove him. I want to bank this week for more flexibility next week.

This is likely to be the last week I own two Liverpool defenders so hopefully they can keep a clean sheet against a West Ham side who will be without their chief goalscorer Michail Antonio (£6.3m).

Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.5m) is a long-term hold for me. With cleans sheets in 50% of Southampton's games so far, you can’t ask for much more than that from a budget defender. He needs to stop picking up yellow cards though! 

Fingers crossed James Rodriguez (£8m) is fit for the Newcastle game; I’m getting frustrated with his constant injury niggles. 

Gameweek 7 will be the last time Daniel Podence (£5.5m) will be making an appearance in my squad, he’s getting bombed out next week no matter what he does against Crystal Palace tonight. No goals from my three strikers last week but that’s fine because they’re all scoring braces this weekend. I was eyeing up Ollie Watkins (£6.0m) to Antonio in Gameweek 8 but it looks like his injury has scuppered those plans.

Updated Watchlist 

(Players in BOLD I've added this week)

Defenders: Chilwell, Saiss/Kilman, Ayling/Dallas, Lamptey, Targett, Coufal

Midfielders: Mane, Sterling/De Bruyne/Foden, Bruno, Zaha, Grealish/Barkley, Soucek/Bowen, Pulisic/Jorginho, Armstrong, Lookman

Forwards: Ings/Adams, Jimenez, Maupay, Wilson, Antonio, Bamford, Brewster

Players I've removed from my Watchlist this week: 

Defenders: Masuaku (prefer Coufal), Konsa (prefer Targett), Digne (suspended), Reguilon (rotation risk)

Midfielders: Rashford (prefer Bruno), Barnes (five blanks in six), Havertz, McGinn (prefer Barkley/Grealish), Trossard, Saint-Maximin 

Forwards: Werner (prefer the cheaper forwards), Aguero (injured)
