Come hither, fantasy heads – our Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 6 midfielders round-up is here to get you all swatted up in time for this weekend’s fixtures!

While our tips are based on FPL player prices, the principles should apply more or less across the board – so even if you’re playing fantasy football at Sky Sports, the Telegraph, the Mirror or indeed anywhere else, you should still stick around.


Now let’s get stuck into those Gameweek 6 midfield tips…

Ángel Di María, Manchester United – £9.8m

The Argentina winger has made a flying start at United, bagging a goal and an assist in each of the last two games.

His £7.4m team mate Ander Herrera also has back-to-back goals, and with a home game against West Ham to come this weekend it’s not inconceivable that either or both of them could make it three in a row.

Mohamed Diamé, Hull City – £5.5m

Speaking of flying starts, Diamé has scored in each of his first two games since moving from West Ham.

Hull’s fixture at home to Manchester City may not look the most presentable, but Diamé has bloodied the noses of illustrious opponents in the past.

Fine goals against Arsenal and Chelsea spring to mind, anyway.

Dušan Tadić, Southampton – £7.5m

Southampton have a great chance to record a fourth consecutive win this weekend, hosting as they are a QPR side that’s lost 4-0 in each of their previous away games this season.

Tadić has a couple of assists to his name already and a track record of goals in Holland – 32 in two seasons at FC Twente, in case you’re wondering – so he looks a shrewd move.

Kevin Mirallas, Everton – £7.4m

The Belgian is often Everton’s stand-out player against Liverpool, and the Anfield derby beckons.

Why not hedge your bets and get Raheem Sterling as well?

Jason Puncheon, Crystal Palace – £5.9m

With a goal and two assists already, Puncheon looks to be carrying on his form of last season.

Palace are at home to Leicester in Gameweek 6, by no means an easy fixture but one which promises goals nevertheless.

Andre Schürrle, Chelsea – £7.6m

Keep your ear to the ground for word of whether Schürrle’s goal-scoring substitute appearance at Manchester City will earn him a start at home to Aston Villa this weekend.

It should go without saying that you should have Cesc Fábregas as well.

Good luck and happy selecting!
