Selecting a team for this gameweek will be crucial considering that the players just came back from the international break.
Fantasy Premier League: Leicester City continued their marauding run with a comprehensive showing at home to Arsenal. The Foxes emerged victorious with a 2-0 scoreline with goals from Jamie Vardy and James Maddison. Manchester United saw off a meek Brighton side while Chelsea ran away winners at home against Crystal Palace.
Tottenham Hotspur, however, had to settle for a draw against Sheffield United. Liverpool came out on top and maintained their unbeaten league run against Guardiola’s Manchester City. Thanks to a well-rounded performance from the Reds, thereby maintaining their stronghold on the top of the table.
Gameweek 12 Review- 48 Points
Captain Tammy Abraham was the star of the week with 16 points. Sadio Mane had seven points while newcomer Youri Tielemans had six points. Liverpool full-back Andrew Robertson got five points. Rui Patricio got three points in his side’s victory against Aston Villa.
Kevin de Bruyne, Joshua King, Harry Kane, John Lundstram, and John McGinn got two points each. Jamaal Lascelles added to the average overall performance with a point.
The average for the Fantasy Premier League week was also 48 points.
Gameweek 12 Transfers
Jamaal Lascelles’ leg injury makes him the prime candidate for a transfer. John Egan of Sheffield United is a hot prospect that can be brought in but Caglar Soyuncu of Leicester City is chosen to replace the Newcastle United centre-back. The Leicester man has been a vital part of the Foxes’ resurgence under Brendan Rodgers and he doesn’t come with the high costs attributed to the likes of Ben Chillwell and Ricardo Pereira.
Gameweek 13 Line-up
3-5-2 is the preferred set-up. Rui Patricio features in goal ahead of Tom Heaton as the latter is injured. Andrew Robertson, despite a 75% chance to play, Caglar Soyuncu and Erik Pieters start in defence with John Lundstram facing Manchester United and Patrick van Aanholt facing Liverpool move to the bench.
Fantasy Premier League: Gameweek 13 Lineup
It is Kevin De Bruyne, Sadio Mane, Jorginho, Youri Tielemans, and John McGinn in the midfield this week. Harry Kane and Tammy Abraham start ahead of Joshua King as the Norwegian only has a 75% chance to feature.
