FPL Gameweek 6 Ones to watch

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 6 of Fantasy Premier League.

Jack Grealish (AVL) £7.2m

The Aston Villa playmaker has enjoyed an excellent start to 2020/21.

Grealish has amassed 38 points in his four Gameweek appearances, scoring three goals and providing three assists.

That includes a haul of 24 points in his previous home match, a 7-2 win over champions Liverpool.

Grealish's five GW4 goal involvements

The underlying numbers show Grealish’s all-round potential for Fantasy returns.

Since Villa’s first match of the campaign in GW2, his 14 chances created are joint-top among all players.

Only premium midfielders Bruno Fernandes (£10.5m) and Kevin De Bruyne (£11.5m) can match him.

Grealish also produced eight shots inside the penalty box in that period.

That was bettered only by Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) and Sadio Mane (£11.9m) among FPL midfielders. The Liverpool pair recorded 11 and 10 respectively.

Grealish is currently the fourth most-owned midfielder in the game, sitting in 22.7 per cent of squads.

And his upcoming schedule suggests he will continue to grow in popularity for a number of Gameweeks.

Home run

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), seven of their next 10 fixtures score only two.

That run includes three home matches in the next four, with Leeds United, Southampton and Brighton & Hove Albion all visiting Villa Park.

Leeds’ defensive record looks very encouraging for Grealish’s GW6 prospects.

They have conceded 53 shots inside the box, more than any other side.

Grealish can seize upon those frailties and strengthen his claim as a must-have midfielder.
