Gameweek 6 best free hit team

With a new Gameweek upon us we take a look at the free hit chip. Using the Fantasy Football Scout members area we can utilise the season ticker and underlying stats to determine the Gameweek 6 best free hit team.

The free hit chip in FPL allows managers, within the same budget and formational limits, to select a team for one particular Gameweek. Managers can attack any given Gameweek with the free hit whether that be to utilise a good set of fixtures, in-form teams or players or a mixture of it all.

Fixtures

Who has the best fixtures?

Manchester City, Wolves, Brighton, Luton and Newcastle all rank amongst the top five teams with the easiest fixtures.

Who has the worst fixtures?

Nottingham Forest, West Ham, Tottenham, Sheffield United and Bournemouth all rank amongst the bottom five teams with the toughest fixtures.

The best Free Hit team

Using the Live FPL website we can use one of its fantastic tools to plan transfers weeks in advance. Not just this, but we can also create team drafts to plan for using a chip. Take a look at the best free hit team for Gameweek 6:

Goalkeepers

  • Mark Flekken (£4.5m) – Brentford have a great fixture this week. They face an Everton side whom have failed to score in four of their first five fixtures. This could suggest investing in the Brentford defence a wise move.
  • Sam Johnstone (£4.5m) – The back-up goalkeeper plays against a Fulham side whom sit amongst the worst five teams in the league for several key attacking data points. He will also only feature in the unlikely event that Flekken does not.

Defenders

  • Sven Botman (£4.5m) – Newcastle have started to improve their underlying defensive data as fixtures improve. They sustained some of the best defensive data in the league last season and come up against newly promoted side Sheffield United next. Botman is one of the cheapest and most reliable ways into the Newcastle backline.
  • Kieran Trippier (£6.5m) – To highlight how poor the Sheffield United attack has been statistically we look to their numbers. Amongst all teams so far they sit joint second worst for big chances total (six), third worst for total attempts on goal (41) and third worst for shots on target (17). Because of that his set pieces and distribution, Trippier has good potential.
  • Pervis Estupinan (£5.3m) – Brighton have been fantastic this season. One way of investing in their defence and attack is with Estupinan. The full-back ranks third amongst all defenders in the league for non-penalty expected goals conceded (1.48) and has already racked up three attacking returns this season.
  • Manual Akanji (£5m) – Manchester City have maintained some of the best defensive data in the league so far. One of the best routes into the backline is with Akanji who has started four of his sides first five matches in the league. He sits on the bench ready to come on if someone fails to feature or if managers prefer to rotate him in.
  • Amari’i Bell (£4m) – Luton face Wolves this week and the cheapest and most reliable defender in the defence is centre-back Amari’i Bell. It is unlikely he will feature.

Midfielders

  • Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) – Liverpool look in fine scoring form – scoring two or more goals in four of their first five matches. Their most in-form player is Salah who has picked up a return in all of his first five matches. He also takes his sides penalties giving him an additional route to points.
  • Eberchi Eze (£6.3m) – Crystal Palace face a poor Fulham defence next up in terms of underlying data. So far the Cottagers rank second worst for shots on target conceded (34) and the worst for big chances conceded (20). Eze also ranks joint second highest in the league for shots on target (23). He also takes his sides set pieces and penalties giving him more potential routes to points.
  • Bryan Mbeumo (£6.9m) – Brentford come up against Everton next up. The Toffees have failed to keep a single clean sheet so far this season making them a team to target. Mbeumo ranks in the top six players for non-penalty expected goal involvement (3.49) and also takes his sides penalties.
  • Kaoru Mitoma (£6.5m) – Brighton have won four of their first five matches so far and have scored more goals than any other team this season (15). They have a game against Bournemouth who sit second worst for shots in the box conceded (66) and third worst for total attempts conceded (94). With this in mind it could be beneficial to select standout attacker Kaoru Mitoma.
  • Pedro Neto (£5.5m) – Wolves haven’t been great so far but they face one of the worst defences in the league next with Luton. The Hatters have lost all four of their first matches and conceded a huge 10 goals in the process. No player in the entire division has created more chances than Neto (17). He also ranks joint second best for big chances created (four).

Forwards

  • Erling Haaland (£14.1m) -The Norwegian has already amassed a huge seven goals and one assist in just five matches this season. He is the standout captaincy option moving forward so is absolutely essential.
  • Julian Alvarez (£6.8m) – Manchester City rank amongst the best attacks in the league. They sit second best for total attempts (97), the best for shots in the box (69) and the best for big chances total (69). Alvarez has been fantastic this season. In his first five matches he also picked up a return in all of them. In addition, Alvarez also sits amongst the top five strikers for attempts on goal.
  • Yoane Wissa (£6.1m) – Brentford have been great so far this season in terms of goals. Their data also backs that. In fact, they rank fourth best for shots in the box (58) and also joint third for big chances total (16). With that in mind, considering their opponent as well, Wissa could be a fantastic option.
