Gameweek 6 Points: 75
The game between Brighton and Newcastle was very tight, with only 1 goal deciding it. Unfortunately, it went the wrong way for us, with Brighton earning the win and ruining RobElliot’s clean sheet.
Newcastle conceded just 3 shots on target during the game, with none of Brighton’s chances being defined as ‘big chances’.
Ben Mee returned clean sheet points, as Burnley drew 0-0 with Huddersfield for their 2nd clean sheet from 3 home games this season.
Huddersfield took just 2 shots on target; only Crystal Palace (0) managed fewer in Gameweek 6.
Manchester United secured their 5th clean sheet of the season; grinding out a 1-0 away win over Southampton, with Phil Jones taking the 3 bonus points.
The Saints tested David de Gea on 3 occasions but none of them were deemed to be ‘big chances’.
After scoring his first goal of the season last Gameweek, Henrikh Mkhitaryan had a fairly quiet game this time around.
He took 2 goal attempts, with 1 hitting the target and provided 2 attempted assists. David Silva has now overtaken him for both assists and attempted assists this season, with the Man City midfielder having produced 23 chances, compared to Mkhitaryan’s 20.
The Swansea midfielder took a total of 5 corners and produced 3 attempted assists. He also took 2 goal attempts, but failed to find the target with either.
Spurs continued with their strong away form, to beat West Ham 3-2 on the road. They’ve now scored 8 goals in their 3 away fixtures, compared to just 2 goals in their 3 home fixtures.
Christian Eriksen scored what turned out to be the match-winning goal, whilst providing 3 attempted assists and taking a total of 2 shots on target.
Mohamed Salah found his 4th goal of the season in Liverpool’s 3-2 win over Leicester. He found the back of the net with a header, shortly after missing a huge chance. EmreCan’s effort came back to him off the post, but Salah couldn’t keep the rebound on target.
The Liverpool midfielder has taken a total of 14 shots on target this season, which is level with Lukaku and no Premier League player has managed more.
Romelu Lukaku scored his 6th Premier League goal of the season, to earn his side the 1-0 away win over Southampton.
No player has had more ‘big chances’ than the Belgian this season, while only Sergio Aguero and Alvaro Morata have matched his 6 goals scored.
Harry Kane got his second brace of the season and once again, it came away from home.
In addition to finding the back of the net twice against West Ham, the Spurs forward also struck the woodwork twice. He’s now hit the woodwork a total of 5 times this season; at least 3 more times than any other player.
Finally, Roberto Firmino failed to impress once again after being unable to score or assist during the 3-2 win over Leicester.
It wasn’t a great game for the Liverpool forward and the underlying stats backed that up. He failed to find the target with any of his 3 goal attempts.
Overall Points: 337
As things stand, it’s been a pretty good Gameweek. A score of 75 has seen our overall rank move up from 1.2m to inside 600k.
There is one more game to go in Gameweek 6, as Arsenal host West Brom in the Monday night fixture so.
