Mount and Emerson recover from injury to start against Liverpool

The final two matches of Gameweek 6 take place this afternoon as Chelsea entertain Liverpool and Arsenal take on Aston Villa.

Kick-off at Stamford Bridge and at the Emirates is at 16:30 BST.

The headline news comes from west London, with Chelsea – and Fantasy managers – handed a boost upon the release of the teamsheets.

Mason Mount has recovered from injury to make his sixth straight start in the top flight, while N’Golo Kante and Emerson Palmieri are also back in Frank Lampard’s starting XI after stepping up their recoveries over the last week.

Lampard has ditched the 3-4-2-1 and reverted to a 4-3-3, with Tammy Abraham flanked by Mount and Willian up top.

Liverpool have made only one change from the side that lost to Napoli in midweek, with Georginio Wijnaldum in for James Milner in central midfield.

That means there are starts for Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andrew Robertson, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.

Unai Emery has made multiple changes from the side that beat Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday but, compared to Arsenal’s Gameweek 5 line-up, there is only one alteration: Bukayo Saka in for Mesut Ozil.

Sead Kolasinac has been passed fit despite coming off with a minor knock in Germany.

Aston Villa also make just one change to the side that drew 0-0 against West Ham on Monday night: Trezeguet returns from suspension and replaces the benched Jota.


Arsenal XI: Leno, Maitland-Niles, Luiz, Sokratis, Kolasinac, Xhaka, Guendouzi, Ceballos, Pepe, Aubameyang, Saka.

Aston Villa XI: Heaton, Guilbert, Engels, Mings, Taylor, Nakamba, McGinn, Grealish, El Ghazi, Trezeguet, Wesley.

Chelsea XI: Kepa, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Tomori, Emerson, Kanté, Jorginho, Kovačić, Willian, Abraham, Mount.

Liverpool XI: Adrian, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Mane, Salah, Firmino.

    Yikes..wildcard triggered.

    Thoughts on this squad?

    4.5 4.0
    Trent Otamendi Soyuncu Lundstram 4.0
    Mane KDB Son Mount 4.4
    Auba Tammy Pukki

    0.0 left over, hence the trimmings in the cheap slots.

      You need to hope the bench won’t be needed often.

        Yep, for sure. Lundstram/Soy will be my first bench spot, so perhaps some points there, but after that it'll be 1/2 pointers

        Digne -> Pereira
        Haller -> Abraham

        Happening as soon as these games are done.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          22 days, 3 hours ago

          Pereira is a bit expensive isn't he? Soyuncu?

          1. Hot Toddy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            22 days, 3 hours ago

            2nd rate. Pereira is the pick.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          22 days, 3 hours ago

        What is the optimal mid priced forward line at the moment ?

        Pukki Abraham Callum Wilson ?

        1. Moose™
          • 7 Years
          22 days, 3 hours ago

          Brought Tammy in for my WC team..

        2. Konstaapeli
          • 3 Years
          22 days, 3 hours ago

          Pukki - Tammy - Jota 😉

        3. F4L
          • 4 Years
          22 days, 3 hours ago

          those 3 have the best fixtures. But it changes on a weekly basis with the good options

      7. Random Name

        With my lick emerson gets injured again.. Palace goal not even on target.. all details that defines a bad week from a good one. Praying for pool og mane, cs and mane outscoring salah

        1. Daniel - The Veteran
          • 10 Years
          22 days, 3 hours ago

          Emerson is due a goal

      9. Daniel - The Veteran
        • 10 Years
        22 days, 3 hours ago

        Mason Mount STARTS! He is GW6's most-sold player...

        Anybody regretting their decision?

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          Depending on the outcome from today, v Pool remember ...

          1. Daniel - The Veteran
            • 10 Years
            22 days, 3 hours ago

            He plays so that's good. See the fixtures. Up to WC 2 season keeper

            1. Magic Zico
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year

        2. RichardNixon
          • 3 Years
          22 days, 3 hours ago

          If he scores today he will be the most bought player given Chelsea's fixtures

          Naaah. He is top notch quality. I am seeing it difficult in getting him in. Don't know how

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          No chance and don’t get your hopes up at HT. He loves nothing more than a 2nd half goal on a Sunday.

            I know taking sterling out is a risk, but which do you like best

            A) sterling and Greenwood to KDB and Abraham 
            B) sterling and mount to KDB and Son 
            C) aguero and McGinn to abraham and KDB

            B feels the riskiest as it's taking out 2 players with good fixtures. Leaning towards A

              Not just because I live in Chelsea, but Jose Mourinho is a long cut above all the other pundits. Absolutely brilliant coup for Sky.

                Absolutely!

                Recent/unemployed managers are much more in touch with the game than footballers from the 80s or those pushing an agenda.

              B probably but I'd keep an eye on Aguero -> Auba sooner or later
