Players to Watch

Romelu Lukaku has been a prolific goal scorer in every team he has played for and since re-joining Chelsea this summer from Inter Milan he has again been amongst the goals. Last season saw Thomas Tuchel’s side occasionally miss chances and lack a focal point in Timo Werner who struggled to find form. However, Lukaku has been excellent proving a handful for defenders with his combination of pace and strength. The Belgian has scored three league goals in four games and rates at a 7.05.

He’s only played two league games since returning to Man United and despite being aged 36, Cristiano Ronaldo is back! He scored two goals in the 4-1 win at Old Trafford over Newcastle, and he got another last week versus West Ham in an important victory. He averages a fantastic 7.74 rating and with Ronaldo in the team there is real hope he could carry Man United to their first league title since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure.

The game week six action ends on Monday night when Crystal Palace play their rivals Brighton. The Seagulls have been the surprise package so far this season currently sitting in 4th place registering four wins and one loss so far. Defensive midfielder, Yves Bissouma, has been a key man for Brighton protecting the defence, bringing energy and an excellent range of passing to the midfield, he’s even chipped in with a one assist too. He averages a 7.18 rating. However, Bissouma is up against a challenging opponent in the form of Conor Gallagher. The Englishman has excelled since his arrival in South London under the tutorship of legendary midfielder Patrick Vieira. Gallagher averages a 7.15 rating having registered three goal contributions this season as well as offering superb all-round performances.
