Pro Pundits - Tom

Five-time top 1k FPL finisher Tom Freeman’s Gameweek 13 plans

Gameweek 12 has drawn to a close, and all in all, it was a pretty good one for me.

A total of 75 points has seen my overall rank rise to 57,377, and though it’s early days, it’s been a positive start.

Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) led the way with 16 captain points but there were also returns for Ben Foster (£4.1m), Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.8m), Antonio Rudiger (£5.9m), Joao Cancelo (£6.6m) and Adam Armstrong (£6.0m), who has started to pick up some form in recent weeks.

Now, as focus shifts to Gameweek 13, I thought I’d write-up some observations from Steven Gerrard’s first match in charge of Aston Villa, plus my own transfer/team plans for the weekend.

VILLA UNDER GERRARD – FIRST IMPRESSIONS

Steven Gerrard got off to a winning start at Aston Villa on Saturday, with a 2-0 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion. Lining up in a 4-3-3 formation, Gerrard’s preferred shape during his time at Rangers, Villa were much improved, especially at the back. As a result, they limited Graham Potter’s side to just 0.52 expected goals (xG) – their second lowest xG total of the season so far – with 0.28 of that figure arriving from one Tariq Lamptey (£4.4m) attempt during the first-half.

While Albion had a lot of the ball with 63% possession, they rarely looked like scoring, something Gerrard touched on after the game:

“Brighton had a lot of possession, but it was in the areas we wanted them to have the ball, so I’m really pleased for the players, proud of them, but it’s only a start, we need to go and back it up now.”

Ollie Watkins (£7.3m) and Tyrone Mings (£4.9m) got the goals on the day, but which players could benefit most from Gerrard’s appointment in Fantasy Premier League (FPL)?

    Of course I've already done Livra Havertz to TAA Gallagher as would be priced out...

    Now, would you take a hit to remove Chilwell or just play Mbeumo?

    1. The Units

      No hit

    2. JBG
      • 3 Years
      5 days, 16 hours ago

      Just play Mbuemo, I'm most likely playing Duffy or might just "swallow the pill" and bring in James for -4.

    3. DannyDrinkVodka

      Playing Mbuemo is a great option this week

      1. Don Van Vliet
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        5 days, 15 hours ago

        Or even Mbeumo.

      Raph, Salah, Mbeumo, Zaha, Son
      Wilson, (Antonio), (Dennis)

      ITB: 1.2

      A) GW13: Jota for Raph -4
      B) GW13: James for Rudiger -4
      C) GW13: James for Chilwell -4
      D) No hits and do James for Rudiger/Chilwell next GW for 1FT

      From Sporting Life Paper Talk:
      "The game's lawmakers will discuss a request to increase half-time intervals from 15 minutes to 25 so that football can introduce Super Bowl-style entertainment midway through matches.".

      Everyone is just going to spend the time on the concourse and in the bog.

        What a load of ****. I'd consider not renewing my season ticket if that happens. I go to football to watch the game, not queue up for over priced junk at half time. I already find 15 minutes too long.
        I think I need my morning coffee!

        Super Bowl entertainment? What do they do other than rip bras off pop singers?

        nb I don't actually want to know the answer; I'm with CM here.

          25 minutes of bra ripping sounds like something I could cope with

            Even if you have to sit through some awful teenage-aimed pop tune first? Not for me. I'd just spend 25 mins on YouTube.

      Any word on Douglas Luiz? He is usually 3rd on my bench but could do with cover going into xmas

      1. Hint
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        Back training

    7. My heart goes Salalalalah
      • 4 Years
      5 days, 16 hours ago

      Would you do Son + Manquillo to Jota and Rudiger for a hit? Strengthens bench too. Already have James, TAA, Cancelo

      1. Ëð
        • 6 Years
        5 days, 16 hours ago

        Not for a hit. Especially as you already have James.

      2. The Units
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        5 days, 15 hours ago

        Nope just Jota.

      3. TopBinFc
          5 days, 15 hours ago

          Nope, I'd keep son

        • Chaldaea

            No rush this week as Chelsea have United who could score against them.

          3. TopBinFc
              5 days, 15 hours ago

              Not for a hit, Semedo has nice fixtures next 2

            • Goonerly
              • 3 Years
              5 days, 15 hours ago

              If you've kept Semedo up until this GW, you might as well play him for the next 2

            Good to hold this week provided no injuries? £0.3m ITB, 1FT

            Sanchez, Foster
            TAA, Rudiger, White, Livramento, Amartey
            Salah, Foden, Raph, Jota, Bissouma
            Ronaldo, Antonio, Toney

              Yeah hold

                • 6 Years
                5 days, 16 hours ago

                Is Rudiger to James too sideways?

                1. JBG
                  • 3 Years
                  5 days, 16 hours ago

                  I'd say so, sure James looks more likely to score or get an assist, but Rudiger is a menace on corners. Almost scored again last night.

                2. The Units
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 11 Years
                  5 days, 16 hours ago

                  I would look to get James for Livra/white and downgrade toney

                3. Andy_Social
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  5 days, 16 hours ago

                  I did that in GW10. James is always more likely to return more than a CS than Rudi.

              I´m looking to do White and Foden to James and Gallagher for a hit.

              In UCL fantasy, would you sub in Cancelo or keep 5 points?

              So, Alonso playing the inside forward role, plus free kicks, with a much better fixture list than the one he had before he was dropped

              Waiting eagerly for news. Looks locked in for GW14 if the Chilwell knee issue is serious enough

              1. Tinfoil Deathstar
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                5 days, 15 hours ago

                Yeah I think that’s where I’ll be going too. Also frees up £0.3 ITB to do Kane to Ronaldo in GW16 for me.

              2. NateDog

                5 days, 15 hours ago

                Same. I feel if I go near the other side I'll have more issues so if it looks like it'll be a bigger problem for Chilwell just moving to his most likely replacement makes most sense (should mean he's more nailed than James would be for that window anyway). The thing with Tuchel too is he seems to have this habit of going from having full faith in certain players to dropping them on their backsides in one fell swoop, and vice versa. Chilwell couldn't get a look in earlier in the season, then Alonso had one not great game against Chelsea and a poor half v Juventus and that was that and within a few weeks Chilwell was as undroppable as it looked like Alonso was. Wouldn't be surprised if Alonso holds onto that spot again for a while even when Chilwell is back if he gets at least a few games at it and does well.

              Which option do you prefer for this week?

              A) Rudiger, Gallagher, Antonio
              B) James, Mbuemo, Antonio
              C) Rudiger, James. Mbuemo -4

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              5 days, 15 hours ago

              I’ve got Chilwell, no James or other Che defence, and no £ ITB.

              Do I roll FT this week and play Antonio off my bench and then get James in next week for free (likely by downgrading one of Mbeumo, White or Livra).

              Or do I just go straight to Alonso this week, which would give me necessary funds to move Kane to CR7 in GW16?

                You can't make a good decision until you know how long Chilly is out for. Should have a better idea in 24hrs

                  Yeah that’s fair. The above is on the assumption that Chilwell will at least be out for a few GW’s (a one week injury will be enough for that)

              Didn't catch the game last night - any reason why Azpi came on for Chilwell rather than Alonso?

                I think he was coming on anyway for James..

                  Hello Finding Timo! Hope all well with you mate.
                  Assuming that Chilwell is injured then yes Alonso is our only other LWB & will get starts.
                  Apologies for repeating myself from earlier posts for other readers.
                  Alonso started the season well & was keeping Chilly out of the team.
                  Contrary to what some people have posted on here, Azpi has NEVER started at LWB under Tuchel.
                  TT confirmed in his post match interview last night, the substitution was planned Azpi for James at RWB, then Chilly got injured, he decided to play Azpi on the left as he wanted his experience on the field to see the game out, so don't read into last night Azpi playing at LWB.
                  (He played LB in a back 4 under Mourinho back around 2015. Conte played Azpi at RCH in a back 3 around 2017)
                  As Tuchel has stated numerous times WBs are attacking players in his system.
                  Azpi strength is defensively, not going forward & he's very right footed.
                  I've read that people speculated that Azpi will be played for his defensive capability versus Man U.
                  Two obvious issues here, Tuchel played Alonso against Salah in GW 3, I doubt he sees Sancho as a bigger threat then Salah!
                  He's not afraid of putting him up against pace with Rudiger behind him.
                  Secondly if pace was a concern Azpi isn't the answer. Tuchel played Reece James at RCH versus Vardy last season instead of Azpi due to him losing pace.
                  Tuchel is a nightmare to predict & with Man U, Watford, W. Ham, Zenit in CL (Sunday, Wednesday, Sunday, Wednesday) next 4 fixtures he may not play all 3 PL games as he's not played much recently but I'm very confident Alonso will be first choice with Chilwell out.
                  Tuchel has played Pulisic at LWB, it didn't go well Tuchel admitted it wasn't his position.

                  IMHO Alonso is nailed if Chilly is out & I'd be very surprised if any Chelsea fan that follows us will say otherwise.

                  I'm likely transferring him in for Duffy in my team. £5.6m for a nailed Alonso is a gift like £7.5m Jota with Firmino out.

                  Hope that helps & makes sense & I've explained my thought process clearly.

                  You've always been very polite to me, so happy to help you mate. If the above doesn't make sense feel free to ask I'll reply again.

                  Good luck whatever you do. 🙂

                  (Even with your fraudulent user name & not being Chels!) 🙂

                Came on for Chilwell because of injury on Chilwell.

                • 3 Years
                5 days, 15 hours ago

                TT confirmed in his post match interview that
                Azpi was coming on for Reece, then Chilwell got injured so TT decided to play him on the left.

                TT wanted Azpi experience on the pitch to see the game out.

                Mentioned he hoped Alonso would forgive him as there was some confusion.

                  Also, they were up 3-0 with 18 minutes left, so it was hardly a big risk to put on an already warmed up Azpi

                  Carefree are you confident Alonso will get a few games now ?

              Those early transfers and dodgy benches … it does sometimes end in tears.

              So, exact money before the next price rises 😉 Whatcha reckon ?

              Chillwell to Alonso
              Saka to Jota

                I like it, but Alonso before any early team news seems a bit risky

                    some very eloquent posting from the poster carefree crew on previous pages makes alonso a shoe in pick ,thats made me convinced alonso is the pick...

                Letting the cash dictate my transfers rarely worked for me

                Saka has a good fixture and has been unlucky, Chilwell could be out only one or two games, Jota is perhaps injured, Alonso may not get the spot

                I was sort of joking, but will wait to see if Jota is fit and if Chilwell is properly injured.

                Alonso surely is a shoe-in for LWB and Jota is a great pick with some fantastic fixtures and nailed with Salah etc head of to Africa in January

                  Saka haul and Jota blank is a possibility. Saka has been very unlucky compared to ESR. I am keeping Saka vs Newcastle, made the mistake of selling Raph for Jota early. Yet, no problems starting Dennis and/or Toney this week.

                    I was inclined to roll a transfer but I think Jota has a much better upside than Saka

                Jota knock situation still uncertain? His price is not going to change and nor is Saka's.

                      I would be saving FT with that team and then figure out how to get James in the following GW with 2 FT's.

                        Just a quick reminder.
                        Never do early transfers when there are competitive midweek games to be played likely involving some of your players.

                          Agreed see below (and I never do early ones) just had to this week or couldn’t afford them

                          And always hope that your players score more than other player’s players, unless they are players also playing in your team.

                          I'm sure people knew the risks when they made the early transfer. I hope it was due to being priced out if they didn't do it early rather than making/ saving money

                        4. Baps hunter
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          How much do they usually cost with strong bench? If the cost is -4 or -8 during the whole season and they are done in the first half of the season, that extra money gained could outweigh the risks involved.

                            was gonna say this. there's a risk involved yes, but let's face it, 90% of the time you make an early transfer it goes fine. Also I was in the position last year where I was overly patient and got priced out of moves. I've made a few early moves this season and haven't regretted it yet.

                        I did these transfers on Monday before prices rises- Christensen Havertz & Antonio > James Jota
                        & Jimi -4.. which leaves me

                        Sanchez Steele
                        TAA James Chilwell Cancelo Livra
                        Salah Jota Raphina ESR Gilmor
                        Vardy Jimi Toney

                        Should I?

                        A. WC to cancel the hit and obv sell Chilwell and a few others
                        B. Leave it sort Chilwell next week

                          5 days, 15 hours ago

                          Depends on how many changes you would make to your 11 on WC. I would just stick to the original plan and bench Chilwell

                          Unless your saving the wildcard for a particular fixture swing or targeted strategy then i think wildcarding this week would be a fantastic idea especially in a week were there are likely lots of hits going around etc… if you are wanting a Spurs asset (big if) then you can also get that sorted now for there good fixture run as well. Your team isn’t in bad shape by all means but you could tidy it up and get ahead of the game with maybe a city attacher as well and about hit(s) over the next few weeks.

                          Your choice mate but if I was in your position I would definitely be hitting the wildcard now ahead of busy schedule 🙂

                          Only WC if Salah, Jota, Trent and Cancelo get injured tonight.

                            Spurs situation being so unclear and with the fixtures coming, I wouldn't rush to WC that team now. It could still be decent 3-4-3 and outscore WC team this week.

                            Play White assuming bench would have been White, Livramento and Luiz and deal with Chilwell next GW or just take the hit now to James pending injury update.

                            B Livramento ?

                              I would hold Livramento if you got him at 4.0m. He is still a good 5th def option

                              Decent number offloading Chilwell. Unlikely, but would be hilarious if he still played.

                                Crazy when we don't know the full extent of the injury and there are more games tonight

                              The Chilwell injury highlights the issue with price changes. Ive never been a fan of the price change rule and would like to see it got rid of.

                              I like to wait for any cup games to be played and for the Friday team news before making transfer decisions but so often I get priced out of players because of stupid people making unnecessary early transfers.

                              If the price change rule is to stay, I would at least like FPL to build a feature into the game that prohibits early transfers so that transfers can only be made one day before gameweek deadlines.

                                Huh? What is the price change rule?

                                You want us to only be able to make transfers the day before deadline?

                                Not sure you'll get a lot of support for that mate.

                                So in summary you want FPL to tailor the system to benefit how you play the game, and negate any benefit others might get from how they play. Gotcha

                                  What benefit is there in making early transfers? It's simply unnecessary and negatively impacts the dynamics of the game. Feeling forced into moving early for a player because of others driving player prices with unnecessary early transfers is not a good scenario and I feel the game would be a better game to play if this wasn't allowed to happen. That's all I'm saying.

                                  Many would have felt forced into moving for Chilwell before Chelsea's game because of his imminent price rise and have now been screwed because he is now injured.

                                    I agree with you. Also price changes fuel templates which are the worst thing in the game.

                                    It adds an extra element of risk/pressure to the game which is the only thing that makes games like this fun in the first place. Let's all just have an unlimited transfer budget too eh as that limits what moves we can make too

                                      no thats a stupid idea re the transfers.

                                haha stop crying, that's part of the game. Move early and take the risk or move late and risk being priced out.

                              **Finding Timo** I replied but it's posted 5 posts above yours, but on the same thread "Conners". Not sure if you'll get an alert so posted here to highlight. Short answer yes confident Alonso will get starts. Longer explanation in my posted response.

                              A) Mbeumo & Bissouma > Jota & Gallagher
                              B) Chilwell & Bissouma > Alonso & Jota
                              C) Chilwell & Bissouma > Alonso & Gallagher

                              I don't need to rush on Alonso as he's price locked, I lose no values from Chilwell's first drop & we're playing United I guess?

                              But then again it's a straight shootout of two of Alonso, Jota & Gallagher for this next week.

                              Thoughts?
