Mark Sutherns’ FPL Gameweek 13 preview and latest team plans

Andy North and Mark Sutherns drop into their regular Friday night slot for another laid-back look at the key Fantasy Premier League (FPL) talking points ahead of Gameweek 13.

Mark is recording for our subscribers every Gameweek throughout the upcoming campaign, so sign up via this link in order to see his regular appearances.

Ben Chilwell‘s (£6.0m) injury, coupled with some early Sunday night transfers, has forced Mark to take only his second hit of the season. However, when it’s Marcos Alonso (£5.6m) coming in, he seems more than happy to take his medicine.

As for Andy, he’s closing the gap on Mark after another green arrow and, having resisted a hasty move for Reece James (£6.1m), is still considering his own hit to swap out Phil Foden (£8.3m) for Diogo Jota (£7.6m).

    Okay to start Mbeumo ahead of Rudiger?

    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Tricky. But I think United will score.

  3. Dark Side Of The Loon!

    Does Mbeumo to Jota for -4 make sense? Or wait till next gameweek?

    1. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years

      Wait

      Hi there i live in Liverpool and hope to be attending the match today Storm Arwen is here and apparently till 6pm Saturday a lot of homes have lost power due to the high winds and trees have fallen onto roads so there's boundnto he transportation issues for fans if the match goes ahead, news updates for the city can be found on there https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/live-updates-storm-arwen-causes-22293538

        Here in Sri Lanka it's warm and cloudy what's it like in the UK? saw someone mentioning the pool match and possible postponement, any possibility?

        1. BrockLanders

          It won't be. The bad weather is in the morning. Don't worry

          1. Thomas Magnum
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 22 days ago

            I think it’ll only be postponed if the fans are in danger right?

            1. BrockLanders
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 22 days ago

              Yeah. So definitely no indication that'll be the case.

          1. BrockLanders
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 22 days ago

            That's the right call. Fancy Raphina to get something today

            1. Herogrows
                1 month, 22 days ago

                Raph is pretty consistent with his returns, I'd agree with all the above

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        With the news on Liverpool on a possible postponement, I think I might just hold this move.

        Havertz to Jota

            Any thoughts would be appreciated
            Keep one:
            A) Mbeumo (no Toney)
            B) CHO
            Sell one:
            1) Tomiyasu (have Ramsdale, 4.5SV)
            2) Tyrick Mitchell

            1. Herogrows
                1 month, 22 days ago

                Keep Mbeumo sell Tomi

                Thanks all, I pretty much agree. Just have a feeling CHO is either due a benching or a goal in the league, just not sure which comes first!

              4.0 Antonio Livra Sissoko

              Could get Alonso but feel like its worth waiting a week considering I have Semedo vs Norwich

                  looks good, bank the transfer

                  Yep hold

                • 6 Years
                1 month, 22 days ago

                Bench one.

                Foden, Wilson, Cornet, Gallagher?

                1. Herogrows
                    1 month, 22 days ago

                    I'm benching Cornet and playing Gallagher, don't own Wilson or Foden but i'd be playing both if i did

                  • sminkypinky
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 10 Years
                    1 month, 22 days ago

                    I would bench Cornet

                    1. Thomas Magnum
                      • 6 Years
                      1 month, 22 days ago

                      This for me as well

                    • 8 Years
                    1 month, 22 days ago

                    Wilson

                  • Pinturicchio10
                    • 3 Years
                    1 month, 22 days ago

                    Foden

                  • AC/DC AFC
                    • 6 Years
                    1 month, 22 days ago

                    I prefer Cornet over Wilson fixture wise and from.

                2. waltzingmatildas
                  • 11 Years
                  1 month, 22 days ago

                  A) Chilwell to alonso (-4)
                  B) Chilwell to lamptey (-4) (money to upgrade Davis to king)
                  C) play livra
                  D) play normann

                  Also have foden who is a doubt so could end up playing both of livra and normann

                  1. Holmes
                    • 8 Years
                    1 month, 22 days ago

                    A

                  2. Thomas Magnum
                    • 6 Years
                    1 month, 22 days ago

                    Normally I’d say A but with there being such a short turnaround maybe C and hope Alonso doesn’t rise before next GW (midweek) and bring him in then for free?

                  3. waltzingmatildas
                    • 11 Years
                    1 month, 22 days ago

                    Hmm cheers guys. Tempting to use the Chilwell opportunity to upgrade elsewhere but alonso is probably the move.
                    So, do I think Man U score? Hmmm......

                    1. Thomas Magnum
                      • 6 Years
                      1 month, 22 days ago

                      I was thinking of going with Reguilon instead of Alonso but I think now is a good time to bring in Alonso cause he’s cheaper than the other Chelsea defenders and hopefully should get forward. Just have to hope he doesn’t get rotated too much

                  Set up right for this week? Cant see any fires to put out so planning to roll.

                  Would like a chelsea defender but needs to be part of two changes as want to keep TAA and Cancelo so figure I’d look into it next week. Sensible, right?

                  Looking at:

                  Toney -> Locadia
                  Gray -> Jota

                  Worth doing Christensen -> Alonso/Reguilon for -4 this week? or hold for Alonso against Watford next week?

                      I would be worried about having a non playing striker with that team, you already have Goode and Foden who is a rotation risk

                      How can I bring in Jota into this team (currently 3-4-3 and will be 3-5-2)?

                      I lack 1.0 in funds for a straight Brownhill --> Jota transfer. I also would consider transfering out Vardy for a cheaper option (Toney), but he has WAT, sou, avl, NEW for his next four fixtures. Will Foden play this GW?

                      Foster, Ramsdale
                      TAA, James, Cancelo, (Livramento, Duffy)
                      Salah, Foden, Raphinha, Gallagher, (Brownhill)
                      Vardy, Antonio, Hwang

                        For Foden. Roll 2nd ft. Alonso/ Rudiger next gw and roll 2nd ft again.

                        - sell one of Salah, Foden, Raphinha, Gallagher
                        - down grade a forward in a 2 transfer move with Brownhill

                      Foden to Jota for -4?

                        is Jota going to score 4 points more than Foden - that is the question.

                        If you have some one decent on your bench in case Foden is out I would say no, otherwise it may be worth a punt

                                A bit of wind should be fine.

                                Especially in a stadium, if not travelling…

                                Someone posted on twitter the wind speed will be around 39 km/h in Liverpool at kick off time (18:00). Is that safe?

                                    It's been 48 km/h in Liverpool and where I live all night and it's enough for road signs and so on to fly about on roads but by no means any 'danger to life'

                                      I think in this case "danger to life" is not applicable. It depends how the ball acts in that wind. I looked at an weather prediction and there it was predicted that there will be a wind of 10m/s, but it seems to slow down later in the evening and next day it's half of that already. So it might get delayed a bit also. Doen't have to be cancelled I think.

                                  If money is no option, who is a better option?

                                  A) Zaha

                                  B) Gallagher

                                      I'd still go Gallagher, have you got Jota and Raph ? I think they are both better options for the next 4 GWs

                                        To be honest I want Jota instead but a bit scared off by the weather warnings in Liverpool

                                            Only bad thing with the weather I can see is the temperature maybe. But it seems to be still playable weather. At least that's what I have found so far on liverpool weather today.

                                      My D: TAA, White, Cancelo, Livra and Chilwell.

                                      Agonisingly, 0.1 short of moving Chilwell to James.

                                      So...do I:

                                      1. Hold for the week, save a tranny which allows me to swap Antonio out, raise some cash to buy James and use the time to assess Alonso and the forwards.

                                      2. Do Chilwell - Alonso. Pros: Alonso more like to play next few games without rotation; no one has him and it gives me a CHS defender v Man U. Cons: much lower xGI than James.
