Team Selection Reasoning

Following the disaster of GW4, GW5 turned out to be another disaster in equal measure!  FPLH's team only scored 42 points, with 23 unused points sitting on the bench - courtesy of Fellaini and Rafael having a good GW.  For GW6, I have decided to make one transfer which may appear to be surprising to some.  I have sold Tevez for Suarez.  This is in part as Aguero is back and Tevez is once again competing with three other strikers for a starting place.  On the contrary, Suarez is Liverpool's principal striker with no major rivals to challenge him.  Liverpool may not have league form on their side at the moment, but a team of their quality have to start winning eventually?  Also Liverpool's upcoming fixtures could prove a treat as follows:

GW 6 - Norwich (A) - Winnable / goals potential
GW 7 - Stoke (H) /  - Winnable / goals potential
GW 8 - Reading (H) /  - Winnable / goals potential
GW 9 - Everton (A) - Derby match / goals potential
GW 10 - Newcastle (H) /  - Winnable / goals potential

In terms of team selection I have decided to bench O'Brien, as I don't want to play two players from the same team in the same position.  I only purchased Demel and O'Brien due to their cheap prices.  Mertesacker is also benched as they are playing Chelsea.  Arsenal haven't been keeping clean sheets despite their form with Mannone goal.  My first substitute is Sterling as I feel Hazard, Fellaini, Michu and Nolan are more senior and could fare better in GW 6.  Finally I have chosen Cech in goal, instead of Vorm.  Both are playing away matches and unlikely to keep a clean sheet, but Cech has kept more clean sheets.

Recommended Player for Gameweek 6

Marouane Fellaini


Everton have had a very good start to the season and are 3rd
Southampton have conceded 15 goals in 5 league games
Fellaini plays  in a forward position behind the striker
He has scored 3 goals in 5 league matches
