Leicester's Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho make their mark as The Scout reviews the Gameweek's top performers in FPL

Leicester City's attack played a big part in shaping the Gameweek 6 Dream Team in Fantasy Premier League.

Both Jamie Vardy (£8.9m) and Kelechi Iheanacho (£5.9m) delivered double-digit hauls in the Foxes' 3-1 home win over Huddersfield Town.

The strike duo produced a goal and an assist apiece and take their places in a team that tallied 133 points from a 3-4-3 formation.

FPL DreamTeam GW6
Lukasz Fabianski (WHU) £4.5m; 11pts

He starred as West Ham United held Chelsea to a goalless draw; their first clean sheet of the season. Two save points and maximum bonus boosted the goalkeeper's total further.

Joel Matip (LIV) £4.9m; 15pts

The Liverpool defender's first league start of the campaign was a memorable one. Matip managed one goal and three bonus points last season, matching both tallies in 90 minutes against Southampton at the weekend.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) £5.1m; 11pts

The second Liverpool defender to make the Dream Team cut, he recorded his first assist of the campaign and now has five clean sheets from six starts.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka (CPL) £4.2m; 9pts

The budget defender is found in 27.4 per cent of FPL squads and his ability to bring in the bonus points continues to be key. He secured his third maximum bonus award in the 0-0 draw at home to Newcastle United.

Bernardo Silva (MCI) £7.5m; 14pts

His first double-digit haul of the campaign came from a goal, an assist and maximum three bonus in Manchester City's 5-0 win at Cardiff City. Silva has started five of the first six Gameweeks but is still found in only 7.4 per cent of squads.

Aaron Lennon (BUR) £5.0m;13pts

The Burnley winger's sixth straight start brought a goal and an assist as the Clarets swept aside AFC Bournemouth 4-0.

Ilkay Gundogan (MCI) £5.5m; 13pts

Another of Man City's more unheralded midfielders, Gundogan scored and assisted for his 3.4 per cent ownership at Cardiff.

Riyad Mahrez (MCI); £8.6m; 12pts

The Algerian is the third Man City player to make the Dream Team midfield. Mahrez only played 29 minutes at the weekend but scored twice in a superb cameo.

Ashley Barnes (BUR) £5.7m; 12pts

Owned by only 0.5 per cent, the Burnley striker opened his account for the season with two goals against Bournemouth. His haul was all the more remarkable as he only came off the bench with 21 minutes remaining.

Kelechi Iheanacho (LEI) £5.9m; 12pts

Iheanacho's haul against Huddersfield raises his claim as a budget option. He has supplied a goal and three assists over the last four Gameweeks.

Jamie Vardy (LEI) £8.9m; 11pts

A two-match suspension had reduced the ex-England international to only 4.0 per cent ownership. But his goal and assist, coupled with a strong run of fixtures to come, could prompt a surge in Vardy's popularity.
