GW6 Scout Selection: Hazard to down Hammers

The Scout 22 Sep 2018

Midweek rest boosts Chelsea winger's potential but it is Mohamed Salah who has the captaincy for Gameweek 6

Eden Hazard's (£10.9m) outstanding start to 2018/19 ensures his place in The Scout's XI for Gameweek 6.

He is the only player to produce a goal or an assist in all five Gameweeks.

Hazard's hat-trick against Cardiff City helped him soar to the top of the FPL player standings on 47 points.

He takes his place in The Scout's 3-5-2 formation as Chelsea travel to West Ham United.

Joe Hart (BUR) £4.5m

He offers the security of save points should Burnley concede at home to AFC Bournemouth. Hart has only one clean sheet in five Gameweeks but is the third top scoring goalkeeper, having made 26 saves, more than any rival.

Andrew Robertson (LIV) £6.2m

Liverpool's attacking left-back has already supplied two assists to go with his three clean sheets. Robertson has totalled 20 points in his two home appearances ahead of an Anfield encounter with Southampton.

Ben Chilwell (LEI) £5.0m

A big threat going forward, his totals of 31 crosses and three shots on target place him among the top five defenders. Chilwell also offers the prospect of a clean sheet, as visitors Huddersfield Town have scored only two goals.

James Tomkins (CRY) £4.4m

Crystal Palace have earned a clean sheet in two of his three Gameweek appearances. Tomkins has the aerial threat to punish Newcastle United at Selhurst Park, having scored three goals in each of the last two seasons.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £13.0m

The most-sold player in Gameweek 6, Salah's totals of 23 shots and 16 chances created sit among the top two. He has scored in each of his home matches and netted twice in a 3-0 win over Southampton at Anfield in 2017/18. Salah is the Gameweek 6 captain.

David Silva (MCI) £8.5m

The playmaker has scored in two of his four appearances for Manchester City; against Huddersfield and Fulham. Silva is also joint-top for chances created, with Salah, and will be a major influence for the trip to Cardiff.

Eden Hazard (CHE) £10.9m

Chelsea's in-form winger has been the top transfer target for Gameweek 6, bought by over 424,000 managers. Rested for the midweek UEFA Europa League match with PAOK Thessaloniki, he visits a West Ham defence still seeking their first clean sheet. Hazard is the vice-captain for Gameweek 6.

James Maddison (LEI) £6.6m

The summer signing has been Leicester City's standout attacker. Maddison's totals of 12 shots and eight chances created are more than any team-mate, suggesting he will post a big threat to visitors Huddersfield Town.

Johan Berg Gudmundsson (BUR) £5.9m

His delivery can make the difference at home to AFC Bournemouth. Gudmundsson was ranked joint-top for chances created from set-plays last season, with 36, and will trouble the Cherries at Turf Moor.

Aleksandar Mitrovic (FUL) £6.8m

The most-bought forward for Gameweek 6, Mitrovic has four goals and an assist from his first five matches. He has produced 10 shots on target, more than any other player, and will be Fulham's main threat against Watford at Craven Cottage.

Romelu Lukaku (MUN) £11.1m

Manchester United's frontman welcomes Wolverhampton Wanderers on the back of four goals in the last four Gameweeks. Since making his first start in Gameweek 2, Lukaku's totals of 14 shots inside the penalty area and eight shots on target place him among the top two players.

 What the FPL experts say 

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity): I like the selection of premium midfielders; Salah, Hazard and Silva should all be involved in goals this weekend. I can see Hart struggling against the potent Bournemouth front three of Fraser, King and Wilson; it will be a tall order to keep a first home clean sheet of the season.

Tom (@WGTA_FPL): Good set-up. I've brought Mitrovic in myself; the shoot-on-sight Serb promises explosiveness for those willing to take the plunge.

Ben Crabtree (@FC_CrabDogg): Looks a team who will get a solid score but Lacazette and Aguero could punish it. Two Burnley players against Bournemouth is a big call, given the form of both sides.

Lee Bonfield (@FPLFamily): That is one creative midfield! Maddison in particular has a plum home fixture and the underlying creativity stats to return the points this week. Lukaku over Aguero is a big call, though. Wolves will be no pushovers at Old Trafford.

James Egersdorff (@JEgersdorff): I'd like to have seen Zaha factored in; perhaps as a means of redistributing cash from Lukaku to improving Gudmundsson.

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily): Some really good attacking players in this week's picks. I'd like to have Callum Wilson in there, though. With Bournemouth facing Burnley, I expect good returns from him.

Paul Gee (@FPLPaulGee): I expect there to be further rotation at Anfield after their midweek UEFA Champions League match. Also, I would rather have the dangerous Lucas Moura over Silva.
