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.

Subscribers can view the embedded video below:

Mark Mark created the beast. He's now looking to tame it.”

      Well Bamford is known! Worst case you could end up with only 10 out, but I think that's unlikely.
      Given you already have 2 Chelsea (and presumably you know the third next week) I think you can afford to switch this week. I'd shift Greenwood or Torres to someone more fun like Sarr or go safer with Jota.

    Had a night out in Dublin last night, my first trip over to Ireland in a couple of years. Got over-excited and played my wildcard at some point in the evening.

      I knee-jerked my wildcard last week - total disaster. Couldn't even blame the booze!

      Think I’ll have to go for the GW8 team, with a decent bench of players that have decent fixtures the next two weeks. Looks OK tbh.

          1.8 in the bank to buy some optionality down the road.

      I blew mine a few weeks and it was most certainly the booze. Cant complain though am doing alright.

        Yeah, sometimes better to get it done before the team goes stale.

      Is that a euphemism?

  4. CR7 is Home
    • 4 Years
    25 days, 15 hours ago

    Do we think Podence will get a start vs Wolves?

    Any other MF that you fancy upto 5.5? (e.g Elyoxxxx from Saints, Fraser, Almiron)

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      25 days, 15 hours ago

      Townsend?

      1. CR7 is Home
        • 4 Years
        25 days, 15 hours ago

        Good call, looking for a way to bench Bamford and use 1.0 itb, so thinking of upgrading the 5th mid (Gilmour) who will then be rotating with the other 3 mids over the season (ben, Raf, Sarr)

        Have heard good things about Elyoxxx lately 🙂 is he a better option long term than Townsend?

  5. Tmel
    • 10 Years

    Torres > Sarr worth a hit over the next 2 GWs?

        Any cash left?
        I'm not massively keen on Pereira - you're already banking on Leicester with Vardy. Not especially up on Townsend either (if you do want Everton Gray is better).
        The big question though, is what are you doing about Chelsea? Big fixture swing for a team that already looks great next week - don't you want a Chelsea defender in the mix?

        1. Calum Undisputed
            25 days, 15 hours ago

            no money left.

        Quick captain armband check?

        I’m currently on Ronaldo but tempted to go Salah.

        Who is everyone going on?

        1. Lingard’s Shin Guards
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          25 days, 15 hours ago

          ron

        2. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          25 days, 15 hours ago

          Ronaldo, captaincy was the only reason to bring him this week.

        3. Powers106
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          25 days, 15 hours ago

          Same, keep changing back and forth. Seems I had committed to Salah every GW for this year unless injured but CR7 is a wrench in the works!

          1. the dom 1
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years

            Yep agree lol

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          25 days, 15 hours ago

          I'm wavering like most. I think it's a coin toss tbh. I'm probably going Salah though.

        5. Dr. Rog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          25 days, 15 hours ago

          One doesnt own a 12.7mln forward and not captain him.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          25 days, 15 hours ago

          I think anyone who owns Ronaldo and doesn’t captian him is crazy tbh. That being said I am captaining Salah

          1. Holmes
            • 8 Years
            25 days, 15 hours ago

            crazy fella

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          25 days, 15 hours ago

          I’m 80% sure I’ll go for Antonio. Have Ronnie, Lukaku and Salah as well but I think Leeds are setup for a whipping. That injury list is too hard to ignore. No defence or attack. Will prob backfire but it keeps things interesting for me. Good luck everyone!

        Repost.

        Have 9.8m for a def+mid on WC. Considering these two options.

        A) Duffy + Gallagher
        or
        B) White + Townsend

        What do you guys think? Any other options?

        Cheers

          I don't really like Townsend (and I'm an Everton fan), so I'd go A).

      6. Over Midwicket
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        25 days, 15 hours ago

        Play Semedo or Livramento?

        1. Cojones of Destiny

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years

          Why not both?

      7. Dirty Harry
        • 6 Years
        25 days, 15 hours ago

        Start Sanchez or Foster?

        1. ZeBestee
          • 7 Years
          25 days, 15 hours ago

          I started Foster just in case he starts

        2. Gandalf
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          25 days, 15 hours ago

          Clean sheet odds slightly better for Brighton but either could work on the day

        3. KunDogan (B.D.)
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          25 days, 15 hours ago

          Not much between them

      8. Podorsky
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        25 days, 15 hours ago

        Keep Bamford, play Jimenez and save transfer or bring in Antonio for Bamford and bench Jimenez on free transfer? Jimenez does not look in form and Antonio is a monster. Decisions decisions!

        1. frenchfries
          • 5 Years
          25 days, 15 hours ago

          Would not bench Jimenez, surely there is someone else you could bench?

          Would bring in Antonio tho

          1. Podorsky
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            25 days, 15 hours ago

            Not really, Salah, Gray, Gallagher, Jota, Sarr and CR7

        2. the dom 1
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          25 days, 15 hours ago

          Get Antonio and get rid of Jimenez next GW. IMO

          1. Podorsky
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            25 days, 15 hours ago

            Yup, Watkins for Jimenez next week. I believe that if he stays fit, Antonio can match Lukaku over the season.

        3. thegaffer82
          • 10 Years
          25 days, 15 hours ago

          Bring in Antonio, but I wouldn’t bench Jimi personally

      9. frenchfries
        • 5 Years
        25 days, 15 hours ago

        Why is this so hard???

        For the next 5 games
        Bamford ->
        A) Armstrong
        B) Jimenez
        C) ASM

        1. BeWater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          25 days, 15 hours ago

          Armstrong

        2. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          25 days, 15 hours ago

          I’m going Armstrong (if I make the move).
          Where would you spend the extra cash? City defender for me in gw8

          1. frenchfries
            • 5 Years
            25 days, 15 hours ago

            Did some moves getting in Cancelo, Rudiger and Havertz for Shaw Semedo and Jota. Still 1 itb after that, and after Ronaldo to Lukaku that would make it 2itb.
            But Chelsea and City defender is first priority

            1. frenchfries
              • 5 Years
              25 days, 15 hours ago

              Have not made the moves, but played around with the funds if i would get armstrong

        3. Dr. Rog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          25 days, 15 hours ago

          Probably still Bamford out of those.
          unless he is injured more long term of course

          1. HMC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            25 days, 15 hours ago

            Which we won’t know before deadline…

          2. frenchfries
            • 5 Years
            25 days, 15 hours ago

            Dont like my bench options and dont know how long he is out. So im making the switch and could get him back later

        4. KunDogan (B.D.)
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          25 days, 15 hours ago

          Lukaku 🙂

          1. frenchfries
            • 5 Years
            25 days, 15 hours ago

            Give me the funds and that would be the perfect move

      10. Drumandbaines123

        25 days, 15 hours ago

        Sorting out my Norwich bench order...who should be first in case they need to come on?

        A. Attacker - Rashica (75% chance of playing)
        B. Defender - B Williams

      11. focaccia
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        25 days, 15 hours ago

        Thoughts on what to do here? Was tempted to WC but think I'll hold off for now.

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

        Martinez - Toney - Tsimikas - Bamford

      12. George Agdgdgwngo
        • 12 Years
        25 days, 15 hours ago

        Who to drop out of

        A. Rudi
        B. James
        C. Cancelo
        D. Livra

        1. Dr. Rog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          25 days, 15 hours ago

          James probably wont start anyway, do there is a risk of a cameo there. Otherwise Livra

        2. HMC

          • 11 Years

          Brave to bench any city che defender. Law or averages say they return the most so unless you have crystal ball it’s worth playing all. Unless you’re convinced city will concede

        The only thing putting me off Ronaldo is the early KO….been done over quite a few times from that curse

          I want to sell Torres - but he may play.
          I don’t want to sell Raph - but he may not play

          Dilemma!

            Sold Torres. Too much risk of rotation or getting subbed off. Plus, he has two toughest fixtures of the season.

            The big problem with players like Torres. Hard to get rid of.

            Its tough - I have Torres as well, but I have 2 FT and looking at downgrading to either Sarr or Gallagher
