Mark Sutherns’ FPL Gameweek 6 preview and latest team plans

Mark Sutherns makes his usual Friday night return alongside Andy on the eve of Gameweek 6 to reveal his latest thoughts and Fantasy Premier League (FPL) line-up over on our YouTube channel.

This video is an exclusive for Premium Members – and there’ll be plenty more to come in 2021/22.

Mark will be filming one video just for subscribers every week throughout the upcoming campaign, so sign up via this link in order to see them.

This week we find Mark preparing for an afternoon of anguish as he goes in without Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.7m) and with no less than three Chelsea players as they take on Man City.

Andy, meanwhile, is feeling far more confident about the Gameweek, off the back of a green arrow and with a certain Watford winger newly installed in his line-up ahead a visit from an injury-strewn Newcastle United.

Find out their thoughts on the captaincy debate, going big at the back and watch out for an appearance from a certain Wizard towards the end, forcing Mark to fumble for the mute button.

    Play one:

    A. Tsimiks (bre)
    B. Toney (LIV)
    C. Buendia (mun)
    D. Kovacic (MCI)

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      B or C

      Probably B

    2. Nay08
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 8 days ago

      maybe B.
      Tsimikas most likely not playing. Kovacic is just not a good fpl option overall and a bad fixture. Brentford is the more solid team than Villa at the moment, that's why Toney gets the edge from Buendia. plus Toney on pens.

      Thanks folks

    4. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Buendia for me, if he starts United are not good defending counter attacks and i guess he is on some set pieces too. Toney is a 2 pointer, maybe 1 pointer with a yellow (got many bookings in championship). Robertson will start and Kovacic is also a 2 pointer with prospect of a booking there as well as up against Citys midfield.

    Morning all, chance of fielding only two defenders this week but not sure it’s worth using the FT, thoughts?

    Sanchez
    TAA James Livramento
    Salah Benrahma Sarr Doucoure
    Ronaldo(c) Lukaku Antonio

    Steele Sissoko Tsimikas Ayling 1FT 0.1 ITB

    A) Save FT and GTG
    B) Ayling to White for bench cover
    C) James to Rudiger - but would want to get James in as well down the line

    1. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 8 days ago

      A

    2. Fabreghastly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      You've got 2 x Chelsea already so no need to save a Trannie - B

    3. Lingard’s Shin Guards
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      B

    4. Jimbo-Jones
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      B. Good long term move and helps your bench.

    5. Dannyb

      B

    6. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years

      B

    7. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Keep eye open for early team news, Chelsea, City & United at 12.30?

  3. Kyle2210
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Is this good to go for this week or should I use Livramento or White instead of someone?

    Schmeichel
    Coady Shaw Van Dijk
    Fernandes Gray Sarr Benrahama
    Jiminez Lukaku Ronaldo (C)

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      coady.

    2. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Would start Livra over Coady

    3. Kyle2210
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Thanks both!

  4. Mr Ozil
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Bamford >? For FT

    A- King (risky punt but good fixtures and I think he is nailed)
    B- ASM
    C- Armstrong

    1. Nay08
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 8 days ago

      from those options i will take ASM

    2. Lingard’s Shin Guards
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      idk about King being nailed. His mins are: 0, 25, 64, 52, 90

      1. Nay08
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 8 days ago

        yeah. Dennis is better if we want to get Watford forward.
        but I don't follow Watford news closely so not really sure

        1. Lingard’s Shin Guards
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          With Joao Pedro coming back im not sure about him either. Watford have good depth at striker

        2. bench boost for every gamew…
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          King is the striker, and nailed. Dennis plays left winger. King is also a decent pen taker with a very good track record, everyone is so sure it is Sarr on pens, om not that sure. To me, going Sarr over King on pens is like Son taking pens over Kane, both Son and Sarr is decent pen takers but not at the level og Kane and Kong, (no comparison between the pair of course, just to make an example)

    3. Jimbo-Jones
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Armstrong is the better pick long-term, great fixtures.
      But I expect ASM to get more this week.

  5. jb1985
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Bamford injured so play bench who comes In;

    A. White
    B. Allan

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      A

    2. Jimbo-Jones
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Tough. Think I’d err on Allan (most likely 3 but could nick an assist).
      NLD usually has goals in it so assume White gets 2 points.

      1. Geriatric Unathletic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Surs are cack though and Gooneers defence markedly improved last few. Not quite so clear cut. I would go white as possibility of a cleanie and Allan likely max of 3 or if conceded only the 2.

  6. Jimbo-Jones
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Do I burn a FT?
    The players I want to get rid of (Digne, Doucoure, Shaw, Bruno) all have great fixtures this week, and their likely replacements have tough games (Dias, Alonso etc).
    Or switch Sanchez?

    Sanchez
    TAA Shaw Digne Livra
    Salah Bruno Raph Doucoure
    Antonio Lukaku

    Steele White Gilmour Scarlett

    1. We Go Again
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Save

      1. Jimbo-Jones
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Sorry - I have 2 FT.
        So “save” is just “burn”!

        1. We Go Again
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Ohhhh in that case I'd do Raph to Sarr for his 2 gold fixtures, since we have no idea if he will play and bench is not too strong

    2. Jullepuu
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Maybe Raph to Sarr

    3. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Keinan Davis due back when the Villa fixtures get easier.
      Is he more likely to get some minutes?

      1. bench boost for every gamew…
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Hm with Villa playing with 2 strikers in Watkins and Ings you would think, if Smith continues to play that system he will need a striker to come on to replace them some time/mintes, but he also have the likes of Traore, El ghazi who could slot into one of those positions.

  7. kysersosa
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years

    RMT

    Sanchez
    TAA, Digne, Shaw, White,
    Raphina, Salah, Barnes, Traore
    Antonio, (R)on

    Steele, Toney, Tsimikas, Gilmour

    1FT 1.4itb

    Looking to hold my FT and effectively hold my WC, bringing in Chelsea defence next week.

  8. winchester

    Morning lads, have 1FT and 0,9m itb. Have a rough time picking which gw to use wc, considering gw8. cheers

    foster
    taa shaw livramento

    cr7 antonio bamford*

    sanchez esr tsimi amartey

    a) GTG. save ft (play ESR)

      B - out of asm or maupay for me

      I'm capping ron

      1. winchester
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Cheers. Currently thinking of rolling the ft. Using 2 ft to bring chelsea for gw7, then wc gw8.
        Bambam->asm is quite popular move right

        1. Lingard’s Shin Guards
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          yeah you can probably get away with rolling since you have esr off the bench. he could go alright

          1. winchester
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 8 days ago

            Cheers

  10. Nay08

    for the next 2 weeks, who is better?

  11. john25
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Hey guys, have 9.8m for a def+mid on WC. Considering these two options.

    A) Duffy + Gallagher
    or
    B) White + Townsend

    What do you think? Any other options?

    Cheers

    Traore will get his 15 pointer this week
    Southampton play high line and a lot of sellers need to get punished

    1. Daniyal
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      would it matter if he can't get the finish or cross part right in the end (Traore owner)

      1. Dr. Rog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        even a broken clock is right twice a day

    2. Geriatric Unathletic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      I so much hope this :).

  13. CROYDON DE BRUYNE
    • 5 Years

    Start one of:

    Cash (mun
    Ayling (WHU)
    Tsimikas (bre)

    Scraping the barrel a little bit this week …

    1. Lingard’s Shin Guards
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      cash

    2. Nay08
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Cash.
      Ayling injured a low chance of playing. Tsimikas also very low to no chance on playing

  14. Yome

    West Ham 365 tweet:
    Team for today: Fabianski, Cress, Zouma, Ogbonna, Coufal, Rice, Soucek, Fornals, Benrahma, Vlasic, Antonio

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      No surprises

  15. Ruinenlust
    • 3 Years

    Start Dias or Raph?

    1. Nay08
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Raph

  16. ididnt
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Start Toney or take a -4 for Bissouma > Townsend?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Toney

  17. daftvaper
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 8 days ago

    I'm starting Gallagher over Torres, just think he's likely to be benched after starting midweek and they'll not likely score many against Chelsea anyway. Am I being daft?

    1. Lingard’s Shin Guards
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      no. sound decision

    2. We Go Again
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Palace have Brighton at home so could pay off

    3. Bubz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Benching a city attacker is risky business

    4. Maarrrr17
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Makes sense, but could suck. But makes sense.

  18. Disturbed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Start James or semedo?

  19. SOTHPAW
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Traore to Gray or hold?

    1. Stimps
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Hold

  20. kobewan
    • 1 Year

    who starts?

    Sanchez or Foster?

  21. Maarrrr17
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Who gets more points this week?

    A) Coufal vs Leeds (A)

    B) White vs Spurs (H)

    1. Halftime
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      A imo

  22. Stimps
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Sissoko haul, can feel it

    1. Maarrrr17
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Ooooh.

  23. Salarrivederci
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Still having benching headaches.
    Bench 1.

    Pukki
    Tierney
    Livramento
    Semedo

    1. ManofKent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Tricky Probably Livramento, but all could come good

      1. Maarrrr17
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Hard one, probs liv

      2. Salarrivederci
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Thanks!
        Yeah.. if I bench Livra he will assist in a 1-0 win. If Semedo the other way around 🙂

        On Pukki at the moment, but can see him score a goal too

  24. focaccia
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    My team isn't in the best shape, very tempted to WC this week. Thoughts?

    Bachmann
    Shaw - Coufal - Cancelo - Veltman
    Greenwood - Jota - Salah - Grealish - Sarr
    Antonio

    Martinez - Toney - Tsimikas - Bamford

    1. Dannyb
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      I would, but feel like rushing a wildcard a few hours before deadline isn't a good idea, should of done it start of this week to catch price rises.

  25. ManofKent
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    TAA Rudi Dias (Christensen, Livramento)

    Right order? I think MCI/CHE is probably 0-0 but could go 1-0 or 0-1

    Thanks

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Yeah would hedge your bets with Rudias

    2. Maarrrr17
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Yep

  26. Sharkytect
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years

    So when do we hear the embargoed portions of these press conferences?

    I wanna hear the "raphinha is absolutely fine to play...and will be on pens" quote

  27. Weeb Kakashi
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Best replacement for Bamford

    A Antonio
    B Rodrigo
    C Pukki

    1. Dannyb
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      A and its not close.

      1. ManofKent
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Agreed

    2. TSN
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      a

  28. Footieboot
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Arsenal CS odds being at 30+% is crazy right? I mean Spurs aren't looking great but surely they can score a goal with Son back.

      1. soup natsi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        I’d take those odds

    • TSN
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      ayling and raphinha 100% out?

      1. Dannyb
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        No, I'd imagine Raph has a chance of playing, they aren't exactly stacked with options.

      2. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        If not too shabby, Think Raphina will play at least 60 mins as so many injuries at Leeds.

    • soup natsi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Bench boosting with this lot:

      Sanchez (cry), James (MCI), White (TOT), Allan (NOR)

      Not entirely sure if Jota or Foster will start though.
