Daily Fantasy Football Tips - Gameweek 6

Starting 11 is a new Daily Fantasy Premier League football game and app, which has gained in popularity since last year, as managers get to pick a brand new fantasy team each week, without the headache of managing a season-long team.

As always, this week’s picks are suitable for all fantasy football game formats and will suit most scoring systems, so we hope you find good use for them, whether you’re playing Fantasy Premier League, or daily fantasy games over at Starting 11.

If you’d like to get involved this week by challenging us, simply create your lineups today via the free app.


Safe Pick – Salah vs Southampton (H)

Dare to pretend this man is no longer relevant and be punished. Many have sold him on FPL but why would you go without last year’s player of the season on Starting 11?

This is surely the week for him to shine, at home to Southampton – some have opted for Mane as an alternative but let’s not forget Mane has never scored against his old club.

Salah has gone two Gameweeks without an attacking return, but with seven shots during those two games, goals aren't far away – will you miss out?

Differential - Richarlison vs Arsenal (A)

Everton have looked inconsistent of late, but this week Richarlison returns and he will fancy his chances against Arsenal's porous defence.

After scoring three goals during the opening two games of the season, Richarlison was a must own.

Can Richalison help Everton start playing football again?  An Arsenal defence that has conceded nine goals in five games will certainly help matters.


Safe Pick - David Silva vs Cardiff (A)

With two goals this season and having created four big chances for his teammates, the Spaniard has reaffirmed his pedigree.

Will Cardiff come at Manchester City the way they tried against Chelsea?  Silva doesn’t need much space to open up a defence - imagine what he can do if Cardiff are on the counter attack?

Cardiff side who have conceded seven goals in two games vs a side who has scored five in two, this will only end one way.

Differential – Fraser vs Burnley (A)

Fraser's recent hot form can't be ignored following his two goals and assist against Leicester City last weekend.

His performance levels should stand up against Burnley on Saturday. The Clarets have conceded ten goals this season and if it wasn’t for Joe Hart they would have conceded more.

The Cherries are full of confidence after a number of positive results and I can't see this ending anytime soon.


Safe Pick – Robertson vs Southampton (H)

Robertson is getting closer to the same level as Alonso or Mendy and his performances so far this season have earned him a place in the template‘Power Back 3'.

With two assists during his opening five games, the Scotland international's attacking threat can’t be ignored – as well as the three clean sheets to boot.

With another assist this week in the Champions' League against PSG, he is showing he can perform against the best and I think he will cause Southampton problems this weekend.

Differential – Holebas vs Fulham (A)

It's been a fantastic start to the season for Watford’s wing back. How often are we treated to a defender who gets forward and takes corners?

Holebas has not only created four goals this season but scored one too. He even created chances against Manchester United last Saturday.

Can Watford keep Fulham out?  With Mitrovic on the pitch I’m not too confident, but with Fulham conceding at least two goals in every league game this season I'm confident Holebas can be in with a good chance of getting attacking returns once again.


Safe Pick – Allison vs Southampton (H)

Let’s stack that defence and double up at the back with Allison joining Robertson.

Liverpool are going from strength to strength this season and are serious contenders in their bid for their first ever Premier League title.

Ings won't be threatening the Liverpool goal - he's ineligible against his parent club.  A weakened Southampton attack will make a clean sheet more likely for the Reds this weekend.

Differential – Hennessey vs Newcastle (H)

Last week’s clean sheet for Palace had us talking about Wan-Bisakka again, but goalkeeper Hennessey deserves credit for the number of saves he is making this season – including a penalty.

Those twenty saves to date have earned Crystal Palace two clean sheets.

Their opponents this weekend are Newcastle, who despite an improvement in performances lately, have still failed to win a game all season.
