Kammy: Beat Kammy GW6 Preview

Kammy here. A very dejected Kammy indeed.

230th. Dear oh dear. I don’t want to talk about last week please – let’s focus on Gameweek 6! 🤣

Congrats to everyone (all 229 of you) who beat me in Gameweek 5. I’m excited to get stuck in to another weekend of Premier League action!

Kammy’s GW6 Team

1* heroes to come to my rescue?

I’ve gone for three 1* players in my side this week – a slightly different approach to previous weeks.

Darlow remains between the sticks: Newcastle don’t look particularly robust at the back but Darlow had a very good individual game for the Magpies. A big bird in a small nest!

It’s madness that Aguero is a 1* player – this is what an injury can do. I’m chomping at the bit to include him, particularly now that he’s starting regularly again. He scored a penalty in the Champions League and, with Kevin De Bruyne still out, should be on them for the foreseeable.

Podence completes my 1* trio: the youngster has looked sharp since getting regular game time at Wolves, and with a fixture against Newcastle on the horizon, I’m confident he can consolidate his place in that side.

Liverpool still deserve some faith

Things have gone from bad to worse for Liverpool after Virgil’s ACL injury, but a fixture against a very poor Sheffield United (don’t get me started on them!) is exactly what they need to restore some faith in the team.

They were a few dodgy VAR decisions away from winning that game against Everton, with Mane and Robertson looking particularly impressive. Even without VvD, a clean sheet and win points look likely for Robertson, and Mane has always got a couple of goals in him.

Brighton Rocks

Brighton have a great fixture against a winless West Brom on Monday. They’ve scored in every single one of their Premier League games so far, and look odds on to make it six on the bounce.

Trossard and Maupay have looked very good, especially given they come in at just 4* between them. With Maupay on penalties and Trossard a constant threat, I can surely be hopeful of some attacking returns here. Plus, them playing on the Monday means I’ve got a reason to be hopeful throughout the weekend!

Son my premium option

There aren’t enough positive adjectives to describe Son’s form at the moment. He defied the injury experts to put in a great performance in Spurs’ thrashing of Man United, and consolidated that with a goal and an assist against West Ham last weekend. The Korean has always had this ability, but rarely have we seen such consistency from him.

His partnership with Kane looks set to blossom, and it’s really exciting to see what the pair will do against Burnley. It’s another Monday kick-off, meaning I’ve got plenty of eggs in the MNF basket. Bring it on!

Good luck to everyone who takes part in this weekend’s Beat Kammy Freeroll!
