Action galore on Saturday produced many things we have predicted. Sergio Aguero scored again as did Romelu Lukaku, and Harry Kane found a brace the second time after a number of players sold him in FPL.

Manchester City scored 5 once again, making that 16 goals in 3 games, an unbelievable stat. KDB blanked in this week’s demolition, which is pretty amazing considering his quality. This seasons deeper position is working for Pep but not for fantasy managers. KDB may find himself sold by those who kept faith with him until now.

We knew that with the ball, Liverpool are as exciting as any team in the world, and without it, they’re equally as error prone/lacking concentration. Both “qualities” were seen again. If he isn’t already, Mohamed Salah may soon be essential. Philippe Coutinho showed us just why the club fought to keep him from Barcelona. His form is handy just as Firmino seems to be losing his.

Manchester United won a game of football without impressing. It’s becoming a weekly event, and that can’t continue, but it can be a sign of a top team.

Sunday’s Brighton v Newcastle match brings together last season’s top two sides promoted from the Championship. Monday evening rounds off game week 6 with Arsenal v West Brom.

Brighton v Newcastle may not seem the most thrilling game on paper but it’s likely to be a good watch. Brighton are a better side at home and not easy to discourage. Newcastle have won 3 on the spin and beat Brighton both home and away last year. Owners of Matt Ritchie, Rob Elliot and Pascal Gross will be watching with interest.

The Gunners have a great record at home to WBA but have some confidence issues. Tony Pulis will fancy his chances of getting something. Alexis Sanchez is expected to start, and a big performance will make the fantasy decisions moving forward even more tricky.
