Will Rook picks four players to transfer in, a captain pick and his differential of the week ahead of Gameweek 6
GK – MARK FLEKKEN (£4.5M)
With odds of 7/5 to keep a clean sheet this weekend – only Manchester City and Newcastle are shorter – it shows that there is plenty of confidence in Brentford.
They host Everton, who have failed to score in every game apart from their visit to Sheffield United.
At this price, there aren’t many better GK picks for the week ahead.
DEF – SVEN BOTMAN (£4.6M)
Newcastle come into this having kept back-to-back clean sheets in all competitions, while they also restricted Manchester City to one on the road.
Travelling to Sheffield United, who have generated the second-lowest xG in the Premier League up to now with 3.5, should bring a level of confidence in Magpies defenders.
Newcastle are rated by the bookies as the second-likeliest to keep a clean sheet behind Manchester City, with odds of 6/5 for a shutout.
MID – JEREMY DOKU (£6.5M)
Doku made a scoring start to life at Manchester City with the equaliser against West Ham last weekend.
The Belgian came off the bench in midweek against Red Star following Bernardo Silva’s injury, which suggests he could be in for a start against Nottingham Forest.
FW – ODSONNE EDOUARD (£5.6M)
With four goals in the opening five matches, Edouard has cemented his place as Roy Hodgson’s favoured striker at Crystal Palace.
The 25-year-old has started every league game this season and has four goals in his last three appearances in all competitions.
At 7/5, he’s rated as the likeliest goalscorer in Palace’s home game against Fulham, which suggests he’s rated by a few others as well.
CAPTAIN PICK – JULIAN ALVAREZ (£6.9M)
Alvarez is the most-transferred in player of the Gameweek and, given Pep Guardiola has described him as “almost undroppable”, why wouldn’t you get him in?
The Argentine is the second-highest FPL point scorer so far this season behind team-mate Erling Haaland and is coming into their game against Nottingham Forest – a game in which he scored twice in a 6-0 victory last season – on the back of a midweek brace against Red Star Belgrade.
At 21/20, he’s also rated as the second-likeliest Manchester City goalscorer this weekend, and it’s hard to make a case why he won’t score.
DIFFERENTIAL OF THE WEEK – GABRIEL JESUS (£7.9M)
Arsenal’s number nine is back in business after a goalscoring first start of the season in their 4-0 victory over PSV on Wednesday, and could be in line for his first league start.
Jesus bagged a goal off the bench against Manchester United last time out at the Emirates and can do so again here. Better yet, he is only owned by 3.1 per cent of FPL managers.
If that’s not enough, maybe the Gunners’ Premier League record at home to Tottenham will convince you: W18 D11 L2.
