Five Fantasy Premier League tips for gameweek six

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?

Another weekend, another round of Premier League fixtures, another Friday night spent agonising over who to transfer in and out of your Fantasy Premier League team. Life is relentless.

To ease the process of making your changes, here are some tips for gameweek six.

Josh King - Bournemouth, £6.3m

Bournemouth are flying high at the minute. Their attacking trio of Josh King, Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser are scoring goals for fun, and should continue that form at the weekend as they take on struggling Burnley.

Take your pick of Bournemouth's forward line, but I would edge towards King, given that he's the designated penalty taker. The Norwegian only costs £6.3m and has been selected by just 4.5% of managers.

Matt Doherty - Wolves, £4.4m

Wolves' attacking 3-4-3 system has worked wonders so far this season, and their full-back partnership of Matt Doherty and Jonny Otto have been key to unlocking opposition defences.

They face a tough challenge this weekend as travel north to Old Trafford, but having secured a draw against Manchester City, Wolves will be confident in their ability to get a result against United.

Doherty could prove to be an absolute bargain too; despite grabbing an assist and clean sheet last week, his price remains at just £4.4m and only 1.4% of FPL managers have selected him.

Aleksandar Mitrović - Fulham, £6.8m

The Serb is off to a flying start at Fulham, continuing his form from his loan spell at Craven Cottage last season.

With four goals already from 18 shots, 10 of which were on target, Mitrović boasts a 22% conversion rate, which any forward would be proud of.

Fulham face a tough test in Watford this weekend, but Mitrović should win his fair share of aerial battles against Christian Kabasele and Craig Catchcart. He has been selected by 26% of managers, but when a £6.8m striker has accumulated 31 points already, it's time to bring him in.

James Tomkins - Crystal Palace, £4.4m

It should be no surprise that Crystal Palace's return to winning ways coincided with Tomkins' return to fitness.

Ok, so Wilfried Zaha's return played a bigger part in the result against Huddersfield, but Tomkins' importance should not be underestimated. Palace have only lost once when Tomkins starts alongside Mamadou Sakho, and that was against Liverpool this season.

Palace's next few games look very winnable, and at £4.4m Tomkins could be a great addition to your side.

Eden Hazard - Chelsea, £10.9m

Hardly a bold call this, but Eden Hazard is on fire at the moment. He's started the season brilliantly, scoring five strikes in five games, and has been set a target of 35-40 goals by Maurizio Sarri.

Hazard's combination play down the left wing with Marcos Alonso and Mateo Kovačić has been Chelsea's deadliest weapon so far, with the Blues' star man racking up a healthy 47 points.

At £10.9m, Hazard is also £2.1m cheaper than Mo Salah, who has had a slow start to the season. 45% of managers currently have Salah in their teams, trusting that he will return to his best form. For now, though, Hazard seems the better pick.
