FPL 6 picks review and preview (GW20 and GW21)

By Matthew Petersen @Matt_Petersen13

Gameweek 20 saw Leicester upset 2nd placed Liverpool 1-0 with an impressive defensive showing, in a game that also saw FPL points leader Mo Salah (£13.0m) miss a penalty. Man City extended their lead at the top of the table to eight points with a 1-0 victory over Brentford while Chelsea had to settle for a disappointing 1-1 draw at home to Brighton. Man United scored three goals for the first time under Ralf Rangnick to beat Burnley 3-1 at Old Trafford On the FPL front, GW20 had an average of 37 points as managers had to deal with further Covid postponements. From last week’s picks, only one player returned points so I am hoping for a better showing this week.

1. Kasper Schmeichel – 15 points (90 minutes, clean sheet, penalty save, four saves, 3BPS)
