FPL managers flock to Chelsea pair

Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount are top targets for Gameweek 6 along with Norwich duo Teemu Pukki and Todd Cantwell

Over 330,000 Fantasy Premier League managers have already added Tammy Abraham (£7.3m) to their squads since his Gameweek 5 hat-trick.

The Chelsea forward has scored seven goals in his last three matches to move to the top of the Premier League scoring chart alongside Sergio Aguero (£12.1m).

Abraham's team-mate Mason Mount (£6.5m) is also proving a popular pick, gaining 163,000+ new owners over the weekend.

The midfielder netted his third goal of season against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Enticing schedule 

FPL managers have been undeterred by Chelsea's tricky fixture in Gameweek 6, when they entertain league leaders Liverpool

And the Blues' schedule from Gameweeks 7 to 15 looks hugely encouraging.  

Only one of their nine matches scores more than three in the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), while six fixtures are rated at just two.

A double-up on Abraham and Mount looks very appealing.

Todd Cantwell 158,000

Meanwhile, Norwich City defied expectations to inflict a first defeat of the season on defending champions Manchester City.

Teemu Pukki (£7.1m) produced 12 points in the 3-2 victory, thanks to a goal and an assist.

Having also scored against Liverpool and Chelsea, the Finland international is proving to be a fixture-proof asset.

Encouragingly for the 195,000+ FPL managers who have already bought him this week, Pukki is also set for a fine run of opponents. 

Only one of the Canaries' next seven matches is rated above three on the FDR. 

Price rising 

Pukki is the most transferred-in player overall this season, gaining more than 2.6million new owners, and his price has shot up £0.6m in just five Gameweeks.

Managers should be aware, though, that they only make £0.1m for every £0.2m a player rises in price.

Those who bought Pukki at £6.5m and sell him at his current price of £7.1m would make a £0.3m profit.

Biggest price rises 2019/20
Player Current price Overall price rise
Teemu Pukki £7.1m £0.6m
Mason Mount £6.5m £0.5m
Todd Cantwell £4.9m £0.4m
Tammy Abraham £7.3m £0.3m

Pukki is currently the best-value player in the game, returning 7.0 points per million (ppm).

His team-mate Todd Cantwell (£4.9m), who scored his second goal of the season at the weekend, is also offering excellent value. The 21-year-old has delivered 5.6 ppm.

Benched by 700,053 against Man City, Cantwell is proving he is not just a handy substitute for FPL managers, but is also a viable starter in midfield. 

Player Value (ppm)
Teemu Pukki 7.0
Tammy Abraham 5.8
Todd Cantwell 5.6
Mason Mount 4.8
