Fantasy Premier League tips: The transfers you should make in Gameweek 6

first_img In: Matt Targett (Southampton) – £4.1m – Click the right arrow for more advice – … Maybe like Mr Targett. The young Saint is enjoying an extended spell in the side due to Ryan Bertrand’s injury and is a solid player to have on your bench at this moment in time given the fact he’s likely to start their next few games. 12 12 12 12 In: Raheem Sterling (Manchester City) – £8.9m – Click the right arrow for more advice – The ex-Liverpool man faced more criticism for his finishing on Tuesday night as he missed two good chances against Juventus but we reckon his pace against West Ham’s backline could be pivotal and net him and few points and possibly a goal too. Clashes with the pedestrian Tottenham and Newcastle defences are coming up too so he’ll be a good long-term buy. 12 In: Riyad Mahrez (Leicester City) – £6.3m – Click the right arrow for more advice – He’s too cheap not to have. The Algerian has been the star of the Premier League season so far and is a must for your team simply on the basis that 44 per cent of players have him. Don’t get left behind. Out: Luke Shaw (Manchester United) – £5.7m – Click the right arrow for more advice – The left-back had been in brilliant form and probably would have been a tip to add to your team but, sadly, he suffered a broken leg in midweek and now faces six months out. 12 Out: Pedro (Chelsea) – £9.5m – Click the right arrow for more advice – The spritely Spaniard has taken a knock and, after the Blues’ Champions League clash with Maccabi Tel Aviv, Jose Mourinho is sure the player will miss their clash with Arsenal. He’s too expensivee to be an absentee. 12 12 12 12 Out: Per Mertesacker (Arsenal) – £5.4m – Click the right arrow for more advice – The big German is doubtful for the weekend and the Gunner will face Chelsea, Leicester City and Manchester United in the next few weeks if he is fit, so we reckon he won’t get too many points. Leave him out until Arsenal’s form picks up. 12 In: Christian Benteke (Liverpool) – £8.5m – After that stunning overhead kick against Manchester United, the Belgian could be about to go on a goal spree. Out: Wayne Rooney (Manchester United) – £10.3m – Click the right arrow for more advice – The striker is doubtful for Manchester United’s match with Southampton so it’s wise to keep him out of your thinking until he’s got at least one more Premier League goal to his name. Out: Willian (Chelsea) – £6.9m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Another injured Blues star to drop from your team. A good point-scoring start to the season saw many of you throw him into your squad but it’s wise to ditch him now. 12 Last week was an excellent reminder it’s not always the household names who get all the points in Fantasy Premier League.The team of the week included just one player who finished in the top four last season (Daley Blind), while players like Ritchie de Laet, Wes Hoolahan, Steven Naismith and Odion Ighalo mopped up the points.It’s a wake up call to those persisting with stars from Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United, and may mean you’re lagging behind your rivals.If so, talkSPORT’s crack team of Fantasy Premier League minds have put together this list of six players you need to get this week, and six you should be looking to ditch!Check out the Fantasy Premier League transfers you might need to make this week by clicking the right arrow above… Out: Angelo Ogbonna (West Ham) – £5.0m – Click the right arrow for more advice – A hamstring injury means the Italian centre-back could miss around four games for the Hammers. He’s hardly been a spectacular point scorer so won’t be missed too much and it will give you an opportunity to bring in a cheaper player who gets more… In: Aleksandar Kolarov (Manchester City) – £5.9m – Click the right arrow for more advice – The stern-faced Serbian has been getting points left, right, and centre this season. Manchester City have some decent fixtures coming up too and should continue to keep clean sheets, if he can get the odd assist too then you’ll be laughing. In: Joe Gomez (Liverpool) – £4.8m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Surprisingly, more teams have opted for Nathaniel Clyne than Joe Gomez out of Liverpool’s defenders. The English youngster is dirt cheap and getting plenty of points, so pick him up as a cheap alternative. The Reds face Norwich and Aston Villa at Anfield in their next two games so he should get at least one clean sheet, we reckon. last_img read more

J&K panchayat polls called off

first_imgThe panchayat elections in Jammu and Kashmir have been called off, a senior Home Ministry official said. They have been deferred indefinitely due to the prevailing “security situation” in the Kashmir Valley, the official said. Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) has threatened to pour acid in the eyes of people who participate in the electoral process.Based on the State government’s request, the Centre had mobilised around 40,000 central armed police forces (CAPF) and put them on standby. According to the initial plan, the elections were to be held in four phases from February 15. J&K Director General of Police S.P. Vaid wrote to the Ministry of Home Affairs on January 25 requesting “deployment of additional CAPF companies” for panchayat election duties in J&K, a communication accessed by The Hindu said. ‘Forces not deployed’The Home Ministry sanctioned 7,000 Central forces that were to be deployed by February 10 for the first phase, 5,500 personnel by February 15 for the second phase, 7,000 by February 20 for the third phase and 10,500 for the fourth phase by February 28. In addition to this, 10,000 CAPF personnel who were under training were also to be deployed for the elections. “We had mobilised the forces but were asked not to deploy them. Close to 40,000 Central forces which are in addition to the current deployment had been earmarked for the panchayat polls,” said the official.Final decision State Public Works Minister and senior PDP leader Naeem Akhtar said Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti will take a final decision on conducting the panchayat elections when the Cabinet meets next time. He said Ms. Mufti chaired an all-party meeting on February 4 to hear the views of all parties and said several Opposition parties, including the National Conference, expressed reservations. “In 2011, the panchayat polls were possible because the Peoples Democratic Party as an opposition party supported the government’s initiative. When to conduct the polls will be discussed in the Cabinet. Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti will take a call on it,” Mr. Akhtar said. The last panchayat elections were held in April-May 2011 with 80% turnout. J&K has 4,378 panchayats.“It’s unlikely that the elections will be held anytime soon. After committing to it earlier, the State government does not want an election now,” said a senior Home Ministry official.last_img read more
