FPL Gameweek 13 round-up: Saturday review, injury news and the things we learned

Our Scoreboard series rounds up the key goings-on from the day’s Gameweek 13 fixtures, from injury news to stats analysis.

With the swift turnaround between Fantasy Premier League (FPL) deadlines, the Scoreboard articles for Saturday and Sunday will take the place of the usual Scout Notes this week.

INJURIES AND BANS

Image

Bukayo Saka (£6.3m) produced an excellent display and was on the scoresheet as Arsenal defeated Newcastle United in the lunchtime kick-off.

But the winger’s afternoon was curtailed just after the hour-mark, with even entry-level lip-readers able to deduce that Saka had a problem around his hip.

“It was an action where he said that he felt something. He wasn’t comfortable to continue and we’ll have to assess him tomorrow and probably scan him to see if there’s any injury there.” – Mikel Arteta on Bukayo Saka

Daniel Podence (£5.5m) missed Wolverhampton Wanderers’ draw with Norwich after testing positive for Covid-19 on Friday, so he will also sit out Gameweeks 14 and 15 as he isolates.

The Canaries lost Mathias Normann (£4.5m) to a first-half injury, which appears to be a recurrence of an old problem.

“I think it’s a recurrence of his pelvic injury that he’s had. He said he was feeling pain there so he had to come off and I’m aware that he’s had an injury there before. We’ll assess him and see how he goes.” – Dean Smith on Mathias Normann’s injury

Ralph Hasenhuttl confirmed that Ibrahima Diallo (£4.5m) couldn’t face Liverpool because of an ankle injury, while Moi Elyounoussi (£5.5m) was attending the birth of his child and Moussa Djenepo (£5.3m) was again absent for personal reasons.

Joachim Andersen (£4.5m) missed Crystal Palace’s defeat to Aston Villa because of a hamstring injury. Patrick Vieira told reporters that he doesn’t yet know the extent of the problem but is hoping to find out more after scans on Monday.

On the suspension front, Newcastle duo Jamaal Lascelles (£4.4m) and Matt Ritchie (£4.9m) and Wolves’ Ruben Neves (£5.3m) picked up their fifth bookings of the season and will miss out in Gameweek 14.

GAMEWEEK 13 TAKEAWAYS

Why Duffy was benched and Foden’s fine form: FPL notes from Brighton v Man City 2
LAMPTEY IMPRESSES AGAIN

Circumstances are conspiring against Tariq Lamptey (£4.4m) when it comes to FPL demand at present. With the premium defenders in such good form and Tino Livramento (£4.6m) the budget benchable option for many of us, there aren’t many defensive slots open right now – particularly for an injury-prone full-back whose manager may well decide to handle him carefully over the forthcoming rush of matches.

It’s a pity because otherwise he is in eye-catching form. He was the standout player of Brighton and Hove Albion’s tepid goalless draw with Leeds United, again being stationed high up the right flank and creating five chances (the highest among defenders in Gameweek 13 so far).

Another downside to Lamptey, of course, is that he has got some profligate finishers on the end of the opportunities he carves out: Albion are the division’s joint-lowest scorers over the last seven Gameweeks, with Neal Maupay (£6.4m) particularly wasteful against Leeds.

SALAH AND MANE AVAILABLE UP TO AND INCLUDING GAMEWEEK 21?

The worst-case scenario for Premier League clubs affected by Africa Cup of Nations call-ups is an exit after Gameweek 19.

However, Jurgen Klopp indicated in his post-match press conference on Saturday that Liverpool were in discussions with the relevant parties to delay the departures of their star players, allowing them to face Chelsea in Gameweek 21.

“Not really, it’s early for that. We’re still talking. Yes [we are hoping].” – Jurgen Klopp on if he knows whether Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah can play against Chelsea in GW21 before departing for the AFCON

THE HAVES AND THE HAVE-NOT-GOT-JOTAS

With Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) captained by pretty much all and sundry, every single forward blanking on Saturday and the two most popular goalkeepers in the upper echelons of FPL – Aaron Ramsdale (£4.8m) and Robert Sanchez (£4.7m) – both keeping clean sheets, the main difference maker was Diogo Jota (£7.6m).

The ‘out of position’ midfielder scored a brace and plundered 14 points in Liverpool’s 4-0 win over Southampton and is on course for a further price rise and ownership boost as the most-bought player of Gameweek 14.

Substituted with 10 minutes to go as Salah and Sadio Mane (£12.0m) lasted the course, his prospects of starting in the Merseyside derby, which were already boosted by Roberto Firmino‘s (£8.8m) absence, were perhaps given a further lift.

Jota had as many goal attempts (seven) as Mane and Salah combined on Saturday and as a result of the stats posted in that game, is now ahead of even the Egyptian for minutes per expected goal involvement (xGI) in 2021/22.

VILLA SOLID, YOUNG OOP

Dean Smith left an Aston Villa side in defensive disarray when he departed earlier this month, with Steven Gerrard priortising improvements at the back when he first addressed the media.

The Villans were seconds away from posting back-to-back clean sheets when Marc Guehi (£4.5m) prodded in a late consolation for Palace but were otherwise relatively untroubled against an Eagles side who were undefeated on home soil before Gameweek 13.

One of their ‘defenders’ in FPL wasn’t part of the backline at Selhurst Park but instead stationed very much out of position just off Ollie Watkins (£7.4m) – the veteran, Ashley Young (£4.7m).

Young impressed as a substitute last week and clearly has a good relationship with his new boss, having been brought into the starting XI on Saturday and heavily involved at direct and indirect set-piece situations, one of which led to an assist for Matt Targett‘s (£4.7m) strike.

“He’s been brilliant since I’ve walked in the door, but I expected nothing else. I’ve play with Ash, I know what his standards and his levels are like.

“He’s earned that start. I thought he came on last week and did really well. He trained well, he backed that up. He deserved his start today. Everything we’ve asked for, to the letter, he’s done.” – Steven Gerrard on Ashley Young

NORWICH NOT THE WHIPPING BOYS THEY WERE?

A 7-0 pasting at Chelsea aside, Norwich have shown some improvement at the back over the last seven Gameweeks. Discounting that hammering, the Canaries have kept three clean sheets and conceded only four goals in six matches.

They might still be fodder for the bigger clubs but they are starting to hold their own against sides around them, losing only one of their six recent meetings against Burnley, Brighton, Leeds, Brentford, Southampton and Wolves.

Bruno Lage’s troops were reduced to just five shots on goal in Gameweek 13, the lowest of any side on Saturday, with Hwang Hee-chan (£5.8m) in particular struggling to make any sort of impact.

STAT WATCH – GAMEWEEK 13

Jota was a country mile ahead of any other player for xGI on Saturday, also top for shots in the box and big chances.

There was a bit of encouragement for Emile Smith Rowe‘s (£5.9m) legions of new owners despite the blank; he picked up a couple of decent shooting positions to see a goalbound volley blocked and a six-yard header saved, with only a shocking Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£9.9m) miss from a yard depriving him of a Fantasy assist for the latter.

Producing one of his best performances for a while was the returning Andy Robertson (£7.0m), who carved out four opportunities on Saturday, two of which were ‘big chances’.

With Salah departing for Africa in January and many FPL managers presumably doubling up on Jota and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.8m), a third Liverpool spot may be up for grabs in many of our teams and Robertson will be a front-running candidate given that we’ll have all that money to spend – although keeping an easy route back to Salah will be at the forefront of any transfer.

      Is there any info available on previous seasons of LMS? Would love to be able to confirm that this is the longest I've ever stayed in.

      Think I should be good this week too, especially if Son finally gets me something.

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Not as such although safety scores in the 1st half are known so you would need to have all your GW history.

  3. Cheeto__Bandito
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Antonio, Wilson, Pukki or Benteke?

    Thinking just going reliable with Antonio since there fixtures are turning

    1. have you seen cyan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      its like there is war time rationioning, but on strikers

    2. Salah’s Sonnet
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Honestly, none

      1. Cheeto__Bandito
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 28 days ago

        I know all strikers are pretty bad right now, but have to pick one

        1. have you seen cyan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          personally idk, need more info, but eveyrone is pretty bad or unfashionable. Bilva, Jota etc are much better picks

    3. TallestJohn
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Probably Wilson short-term, Antonio long-term, Pukki (or a Watford striker) if you want to save money. Probably best to just enjoy Benteke on MOTD.

      Looks like you've got the budget so I'd consider Watkins.

    4. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Be wary Wilson is one booking away from a suspension

      1. Cheeto__Bandito
        • 1 Year

        didnt know cheers

    5. BIG TONES
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      What's your formation? Most are going only one or two up top given poor striker form

  4. Ragabolly
    • 12 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Risers: Jota (7.7) Rüdiger (6.0) Ramsdale (4.9)

    Fallers: Foden (8.2) Calvert-Lewin (7.9) Grealish (7.6) Sarr (5.9) Shaw (5.1) Perraud (4.8) Vestergaard (4.7) Henderson (4.7) Stephens (4.4)

    1. RedRo
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Shaw still about 0.6m overpriced 🙁 thanks Raga

        1. Sanchit
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          He was a steal at 5.5 according to most "Pro pundits" when the game began

          1. Pep's Money Laundry
            • 6 Years

        Hope he starts today

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years

          If he sits I get Sakas 8 points..I think he needs more rest

      • NateDog
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Cheers Raga, hope my faith in Foden for the future will be repaid and that Bernardo can hold off on any rise until Wednesday

        1. Salah’s Sonnet
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          I'd assume Bernado will easily rise before weds

          1. NateDog
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Yeah I know but I can dream! I'll still be able to afford him if he only rises once but I worry it'll be more and regardless I don't like leaving myself with nothing spare in the bank, although a likely move of a forward to King by next weekend would fix that

          • 9 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Gah! My reticence to take a hit for Sarr > Jota has cost me today, and cost me far more yesterday. Disaster.

      • Yank Revolution
        • 10 Years

        2 up

    2. Sanchit
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      With Firmi back, hasn't the Jota boat sailed already?

      1. Salah’s Sonnet
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        He's back? First i'm hearing

      2. Grand Thibauto
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        He's back?

      3. NateDog
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Is he confirmed back?

      4. RedRo
          1 month, 28 days ago

          He wasn’t even in the squad so bit confused by what you mean by ‘back’. They have 3 fixtures in a week - If he wasn’t back today it feels safe to say after Jota’s performance that he’s going to be pretty reliable for the next couple too. Hope people stay away though!

        • Fuddled FC
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Not really.

          Doubt Firmino will be thrown back in for a while.
          Also AFCON at start of Jan means Jota will play loads

          1. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            I think Bobby will be used sparingly before AFCON. Klopp can't risk his hammy going again.

      5. Freshy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years

        Gotta be Antonio IMO

      6. FCSB
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        If Foden is out today, or plays and blanks is the general consensus >> Jota, of hold for a run of nice fixtures?

        1. FCSB
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Or*

        2. Grand Thibauto
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          I'd 100% switch unless he comes on as a sub

        3. NateDog
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 28 days ago

          City's fixtures are just as good if not better IMO (most are the same), I'm keeping even if he doesn't show up tomorrow unless it's a long term thing (which I doubt judging by the training photos and Pep's update). But yes the consensus has been to do that move most of the week

        4. Casual Player
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 28 days ago

          If he’s out and then he’s confirmed out for longer, I sell

          If he’s out and confirmed likely fit for next game, I keep

          If he plays I keep. Whether he scores 2 or 22 inthe one game is irrelevant.

          If I wanted Jota instead I would’ve made the call before the deadline.

          1. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            I doubt he'd be less than 100% by midweek. I'd want to see HOW he plays, not just the points outcome.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Get both. As far as I know Foden will most likely only miss this gw and be back for Wednesday. He's also had a rest now which should be positive for his upcoming game time.

          Foden can haul and has a run of beautiful fixtures - the kind you can see City blazing their way through with high scoring games. Has a good chance of starting up front for most of them too.

          Those kneejerking him out will be kneejerking him back in very soon.

          1. FCSB
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Would you -4 to get Jota in or wait a GW and see if working him in with 2FT was possible

          You'll know after the games tomorrow seeing you didn't get Jota already.
          All 4 have merit.

        2. Gabbiadini
          • 4 Years

          Maybe 4, I don't love the hit.

        3. RedRo
            1 month, 28 days ago

            I wouldn’t be getting rid of Raphinha or Gallagher. I wouldn’t be bringing in ASM/Hwang either. 4

        4. CR7 is Home
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Which move should I make? (2FTs, 0.3itb)

          Sanchez - Foster
          TAA - Rudiger - Cancelo - Duffy - Livra
          Salah - Foden - Jota - Mbuemo - Gilmour
          Kane - Toney - Jimenez

          A) Mbuemo + Duffy ➡ Brownhill + Alonso (play 433, weak bench)
          B) Toney + Duffy ➡ Borja + Alonso
          C) Jimenez + Duffy ➡ Borja + James (removes Jimenez one week early)

        5. BIG TONES
          • 7 Years

          If you go B, what's your plan for Jimi when the fixtures turn?

          1. CR7 is Home
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Am planning to go to King and upgrade Livra to James and go 5 at the back as well as strong bench

            1. BIG TONES
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              Nice! I like it. Good luck 🙂

            2. CR7 is Home
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              It will be triple chelsea def with two of king, Mbuemo and Borja on the bench to cover for rotation during the festive period

        6. JUNITED
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Which one do you think should I sell White or Livramento (They will be my bench option)? I feel like White will give me more points with Arsenal are good in getting clean sheet when playing the lesser teams at home but Livramento has better chance to give me assist/goal.

          1. Yankee Toffee
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Sell the more expensive one as both will sit

          2. TallestJohn
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            If you haven't got Ramsdale I'd keep White to ensure you've got some Arsenal defensive cover. Ignore the Liverpool game which was an obvious write off and Arsenal have only conceded 4 goals in last 9 league games.

          3. BERGKOP
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Livra. Arsenal a better defensive unit and in better form

            B. Jota Kane Pukki (if I use WC)

                    Yes, can do that. And then Jimenez to Vardy later on?

                Good week as of now, on 53 with 5 to play.

                1FT and 0.7 itb

                Looking to offload Saka and Duffy
                A. Duffy to Emerson
                B. Saka to??

                    Saka is flagged and worth more.

                      2FTs and you have Antonio vs BHA on bench.

                  Not having to spend in premiums like CR7 and Kaku has been different and fun imho. Game is a bit more challenging

                Would you prefer Wood (wol, new) for free or Kane (BRE, NOR) for -4pts? Just for 2 GWs only.

                    I have other plans for GW15, so taking -4 for same spot in consecutive weeks wouldn't make sense.

                  One of the games is vs Chelsea, so you rule that one out. Should be fine vs BRE and Leicester. It's long way to go, get him if you are planning to.

                    Got him before this GW, just though how many chances Salah and Mane created for him yesterday for example

                        Jota has a derby game up next(and Wolves away after that) while Raph has two juicy fixtures.

                        Which of these transfers are worth doing for free?

                        A. Foden >> Jota
                        B. Raph & Armstrong >> Jota & Broja

                        Is it time to remove Antonio? I'm currently contemplating downgrading to fund a jota/foden upgrade.
                        He has a tough next 4/5 fixtures and then their run is nice but its during the xmas period where surely he can't cope playing every 3 days during that period?

                          His tough fixtures are almost Over. Bench him if possible

                          Antonio was my enabler to get Jota but my plan has always been to get Bowen.

                          I took a -8 to get Jota yesterday for Mbeumo, rather than a straight swap for Foden. (Got Alonso for Chilly too) So far the -4 it cost ne has paid off. Let me hope keeping Foden was wise. At least I had .1 ITB for the Foden drop.

                          Any obvious moves here? Currently looking at Saka -> Bowen as I expect he’ll get a rest.

                              They’re also good options, but I prefer Bowen - bigger goal threat and mid term fixtures are decent.

                            You should look to get an upgrade in one of the two fodders, Cancelo/Alonso are soon going to get random benchings

                              See above. I was left with 2 choices and took the extreme route.

                                    Great team. My problem is I have Kane and a lot of fund is occupied here

                                      Yep. That was the choice I was left with 2 weeks ago.

                              Foden to jota simple

                                Not so sure

                            So, I had 2.7m ITB

                            Switched Gallagher to Jota. My answer to Jota vs Foden, looking at their fixture lists, is "both"

                            Jesus Benteke

                            Matthews • Livra Hwang Brownhill

                            0 FT. 1.0m ITB. 500k OR

                            Exact funds for rolling the GW15 transfer and then Son + Hwang to CR7 + Gilmour

                            Good luck, folks! This GW isn't over yet, but the next one is already feverishly close. Love it 🙂

                            PS: price changes are faster during the congestion, as many managers make the same moves en masse

                              Oh... That's Salah (C), sorry. Forgot to type that

                              I did a similar move (Mbeumo to Jota) and kept Foden. Cost bucks to do it though.

                              1. Ze_Austin

                                Yup. It means I'll keep Benteke for longer than I had initially intended

                                But I do prefer the Liverpool triple up to a Palace double-up anyway

                                  Arsenal have hurt me this week. You can't av em all! (smile)

                            Which transfer looks imminent?
                            A. Foden to Jota for free
                            B. Antonio & Mbeumo to King, Jota for -4?
                            C. Toney, Mbeumo to Jota & Bench fodder and play 4-4-2

                            Should I be worried that 9 out of my 11 on-field players have away matches --

                            Ramsdale (mun)
                            TAA, Salah, Jota (eve)
                            Cancelo, Bernardo (avl)
                            Rudiger (wat)
                            Vardy (sou)
                            Gallagher (lee)

                            while only 2 have home matches: Raphinha (CRY) and Antonio (BHA). On the other hand my bench has 2 players playing at home:

                            Dennis (CHE), Livramento (LEI) and Duffy (whu).

                              No. Most template sides have that next GW
