FPL Gameweek 13 round-up: Sunday 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

Phil Foden (£8.2m) and Jack Grealish (£7.6m) both missed Manchester City’s 2-1 win over West Ham United on Sunday with unspecified minor issues, along with Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) who continues to isolate following a positive Covid-19 test.

For West Ham, Aaron Cresswell (£5.5m) was replaced just after the hour mark, with David Moyes later saying:

“He is okay, his back is stiff after going into the goalpost. He was in spasm really and couldn’t move his leg well at that point.”

Elsewhere, Jarrod Bowen (£6.4m) surprisingly dropped to the bench, but it was a tactical move, with Arthur Masuaku (£4.4m) preferred for the reasons outlined by Moyes below:

“I think it’s the amount of crosses Manchester City put in your box from both sides. I think it’s how you defend them. They overload both sides when they’re crossing and they are very good at it. They’re probably number one in the Premier League for that. So that was the thought behind Arthur (Masuaku) and also, it gave us a little bit of left-sided balance which I thought I needed today as well.”

Meanwhile, Ben Foster (£4.1m) was absent from Watford’s matchday squad with a groin injury, along with Ismaila Sarr (£5.9m) and Nicolas Nkoulou (£4.5m), while Emmanuel Dennis (£5.3m) and Adam Masina (£4.3m) will both be assessed having picked up knocks.

“I’m not sure how long Ben (Foster) will be out for, but Bachmann made some good saves and I am comfortable with him in goal. With Dennis and Masina, I’m not sure at the moment. Tomorrow we’ll check everybody because Dennis came out and Masina didn’t finish well.

As for Everton, they welcomed back Abdoulaye Doucoure (£5.4m) and Demarai Gray (£5.6m) to their starting XI and bench respectively, with the former’s performance discussed by Rafa Benitez after the game.

“When a player is out for a while you expect he will give everything and he did it. In the first half he was a little out of position but in the second half he was better.”

On the suspension front, Aymeric Laporte (£5.5m) picked up his fifth booking of the season and will now miss City’s midweek clash at Aston Villa, with either John Stones (£5.3m) or Nathan Ake (£4.8m) expected to step in, while Joao Cancelo (£6.6m) moved onto four cautions, and is now just one yellow card away from a ban.

“There is no reason why. I would like Nathan to play more than he is playing but Aymer (Laporte) is playing really well. For this specific game, John was not quite well the last two days. He was a little bit sick, with a fever after the game with PSG. That’s why we played Aymer. He is suspended for the game against Aston Villa, so [it’s] a new chance for the other guys.” – Pep Guardiola at his post-match press conference, when asked why he’d rotated his centre-backs so often this season

Elsewhere, Sergi Canos (£5.5m) andBruno Fernandes (£11.6m) are both now on four yellow cards, but Everton will welcome back Richarlison (£7.4m) for Wednesday’s Merseyside derby, having served his one-match suspension.

GAMEWEEK 13 TAKEAWAYS

FORWARDS HIT BACK

After Saturday’s games, no Fantasy Premier League (FPL) forward had returned either a goal or assist, as the shouts for going even ‘bigger at the back’ grew louder. That may still be the case, but with Ivan Toney (£6.7m) and Jamie Vardy (£10.6m) both on the scoresheet today, plus Watford duo Josh King (£5.6m) and Emmanuel Dennis, it has at least given us something to think about.

The latter two are perhaps the most interesting, not only due to their form, but also their budget price tags. Notably, King took on penalties in the absence of Ismaila Sarr (£5.9m) today, converting his first-half spot-kick after Dennis was fouled, and may well remain on them now given the Senegalese wingers back-to-back misses in Gameweek 12.

As for Dennis, following today’s goal and assist, he has now produced 11 attacking returns in just 12 Premier League appearances. Remarkably, only Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) has more with 20.

LEICESTER ASSETS BACK ON THE FPL RADAR?

Despite failing to score in each of his last four Premier League appearances, Jamie Vardy provided two goals on Sunday as Leicester City beat Watford 4-2 in an entertaining clash at the King Power Stadium. Encouragingly, the veteran forward produced five shots in the box, more than he had managed across his previous four matches combined, while his 12-point haul rewarded the owners who kept faith despite his blanks. The Foxes’ next three fixtures suggest further returns could be on the way, too.

Leicester’s win was only their fifth from 13 Premier League matches, but they did look more comfortable – at least in an attacking sense – in today’s 4-2-3-1, which saw Vardy flanked by Ademola Lookman (£6.0m) and Harvey Barnes (£6.5m). However, it was the performance of James Maddison (£6.6m) which stood out most, as he thrived as a no. 10 and looked back to his best after a terrible start to the campaign. The playmaker was at the heart of everything his team did well, and ended the day on 16 FPL points, via a goal, two assists and three bonus points.

“It was great, you can see Maddison’s quality, he was a real inspiration for us. We always have a point to prove every single day. For him it was looking at his game, he knows this is a game and a level where you are always looking to prove yourself. You can never be calm with that, you always have to be intense. You are seeing the work, not just with him but the confidence returning to the team. It’s not about the one player, it’s about the team but he was excellent today.” – Brendan Rodgers

RONALDO BENCHED AS CARRICK OPTS FOR CONSERVATIVE APPROACH

Despite missing three key defenders – Raphael Varane (£5.5m), Harry Maguire (£5.4m) and Luke Shaw (5.1m) – United looked better defensively in Gameweek 13, as a more conservative approach earned them a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.

Even though they failed to record a single shot on target during the first-half, they scored against the run of play via Jadon Sancho (£8.9m), who netted his first Premier League goal since arriving from Borussia Dortmund in the summer. Now, if he can nail down a spot in the starting XI, he could perhaps emerge as an option for our midfields, especially given United’s improving schedule, though it is worth noting caretaker manager Michael Carrick said after the game that Ralf Rangnick, who is expected to be announced as the Red Devils’ interim boss, was not involved in his team selection or tactics against Chelsea.

As for Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.4m), the move to bench him certainly caused plenty of discussion prior to kick-off, which Carrick touched on in his pre-match interview:

“A few tweaks and changes from the other night, to change things up a bit. Cristiano is probably our standout name, but it’s just a gameplan, ideas. I had a good chat with Cristiano actually, he was great, and we’ve decided to go like that today. Really looking forward to the game.

It’s a decision just to pick a team, to be honest. I don’t think it needs more drama than that.

Everyone is fine, all the boys who have come out of the team have been terrific around the place, Cristiano included, fantastic with the boys, supporting them 100 per cent and ready to come on if and when needed.

We’re happy with the team we’ve picked, for sure. We’ve come here to try and win the game, like we do every single game.”

BURNLEY V TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR POSTPONED

Sunday’s Premier League game between Burnley and Tottenham Hotspur at Turf Moor was called off shortly after the line-ups were announced due to heavy snow. Attempts to clear the pitch were unsuccessful as the undersoil heating failed to cope and snow fell as quickly as it was being cleared.

No details have yet been given regarding the rescheduling of the game, though initial reports have suggested that it is unlikely to be played this year, with Spurs already facing a packed December schedule.

“We were ready for the game and I’m sure they were as well. A lot of people have worked very hard here over the last couple of hours but the pitch just continues to recover every time they clear it. Our goalkeepers have just gone out to warm up and the ball’s collecting snow.

The referee explained the safety angle as well, so I think they’ve just made as early a decision as possible. The ref said we’d have to keep stopping to clear the lines. And of course, there is the safety angle, so I think it’s a joint decision from everyone concerned.

I made it clear – if it could be played, we wanted it played, as did their manager [Antonio Conte]. A joint decision was made eventually and I can’t see how it could go ahead with the way the pitch is.” – Sean Dyche

STAT WATCH – GAMEWEEK 13

Ilkay Gundogan’s (£7.2m) 1.35 xGI total was more than any other player on Sunday, though Josh King was a close second, having benefitted from a first-half penalty, as did Brentford’s Ivan Toney.

Ademola Lookman also features thanks to his close-range goal, which carried an xG value of 0.77.

James Maddison’s five created chances was only bettered by one other player in Gameweek 13, while Gundogan, Callum Hudson-Odoi (£5.3m), Tom Cleverley (£4.8m) and Riyad Mahrez (£8.6m) also posted encouraging totals.

However, none of Sunday’s names rank in the top five xA performers, which suggests the quality of chances they provided for their team-mates wasn’t quite as good as others this weekend.

    Foden to Jota?

    1. putana
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      i will be doing that tomorrow. Should have done it on friday but didnt want the -4

  2. MountainBeach
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 20 days ago

    How nailed on is Alonso?

    1. 97PG
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Pulisic/CHO makeshift wingback alternatives

        Saul left Atletico as he didnt want to play left flank anymore

        Overall I think he's nailed, only a question of fitness

      • schlupptheweek
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Should start most games with Chilwell out, put it wouldn't take much for Pulisic/CHO to take his place.

      • Wılly
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Azpilicueta can also play there & towards the end of the game James switched over to the left-side so who knows!

    2. Bleh
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Bottomed. Am I okay to roll a FT here? Could do Duffy > White to strengthen bench. 0.2 ITB.

      Sanchez
      James, TAA, Livramento, Cancelo
      Salah, Son, Gallagher, Jota
      Antonio, Vardy

      (Steele, Dennis, Duffy, Allan)

      1. sirmorbach
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Roll!

        1. Bleh
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Cheers! Would you start Livra vs LEI (H) or Dennis vs CHE (H)?

          1. sirmorbach
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            I'd start Dennis honestly. Chelsea is as tough a fixture as it gets, but I think Southampton won't get a clean sheet. GL!

            1. Bleh
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              Thanks, yeah it’s a 50-50 one for me as Leicester are so poor at the back and we all know how Livra likes to get forward... Dennis is on fire at the moment though, hope his yellow flag isn’t serious!

    3. sirmorbach
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Any thoughts here appreciated, friends:

      Ramsdale / Foster
      TAA / Cancelo / James / Dias / Livramento
      Salah / Foden / Jota / Raphinha / Luiz
      Antonio / Wilson / Toney

      A. Dias to Alonso
      B. Foden to Bernardo/Gündogan/Gallagher
      B. Hold

      1. Bleh
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        A looks exciting, particularly as you have Cancelo to cover City fixtures.

        1. sirmorbach
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Thank you, sir, I appreciate it.

          1. Flynny
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            I also have dias. Wonder if best to save the ft....

            1. sirmorbach
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              I've been seriously considering it!

    4. popey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Who should be sacrificed to afford James and/or Jota (2ft 0.0itb);

      Schmeichel
      TAA, Cancelo, Reguilon
      Salah, Son, Raph, Foden
      Toney, Wilson, Antonio
      (4.0, Semedo, Livra, Ramsey)

      Currently thinking;
      Semedo, Raph, Antonio >> James, Jota, Dennis (would be bench rotation in 442). Though next 2 fixtures look good for Raph

      1. putana
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        get rid of scheichel and foden for ramsdale and jota.

        james may get rested on wednesday save that for next week

    5. circusmonkey

      Is Kane a worthwhile Captain now?

      1. have you seen cyan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        No, I own him and scared to cap him. Everyone is capping Salah, Everton are in bad shape as well, Salah could have a field day

      2. 97PG
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Feel like Salah will be out to feast vs a poor Everton

          1. circusmonkey
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Ok, just wondering as he had a rest. Salah probably won't get rested Everton but maybe at the weekend.

        • Bleh
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Done nothing to convince us as of yet.

        Out of 1-10, how crazy is Foden + Antonio > Gilmour + Kane (-4)

        1. FPL Pillars
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          And (C) Gilmour? 😉
          Pretty out there i would say!

        2. putana
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          i dont like it. kane doesnt look like he has a big haul in him

        3. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Yeh I think it's mad. fwiw I own all four!

          You're going to want to captain Kane at some point and the form right now just isn't there.

          Does Foden out give you no City attack - are you ok with that?
          Are you going to want Antonio back from gw16 or 18 making that -4 even harder?

          1. TorresMagic™

            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 12 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            A bridge too much for me.

        4. Bleh
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Don’t do it…

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          with 10 being mental its probably an 8 / 8.5

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 12 Years

          Cheers all, expected at least a 9.

          1. have you seen cyan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            its bad, but Kane could haul and make it work out, so it has some hope at least.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Don't do it, you have great team. I looked at your team and was jealous 😀 I am trying my best to fit Foden in.

        I'm top of the mini league for November, but GW14 starts on 30th November. As the gameweek ends on 2nd December will no more points be added to November?

          • 2 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          It's based on the day the deadline is in, so GW14 is part of November.

          2. Bleh
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            I brought him in this week for his 1 point haul and let’s just say I regret my decision. I would hold fire too.

                To be honest, I probably would. But only chance of a better balanced team and a better bench for fixtures thick and fast is to let go of Ronaldo soon.

          I am really struggling with a striker (6.8m or below) for next 2-3 GWs, any thoughts?

          A) ASM
          B) Benteke
          C) Pukki

          All 3 have surprisingly decent stats, difficult to call fixture-wise but probably Tekkers (although he's more likely to get rotated right?)

          Please help! haha

            not sure, maybe Pukki, but honestly I think I would just go King despite his next 2. I like Ranieri being in charge at Watford

              Benteke likely to be rotated eventually

              Norwich look considerably better, and Newcastle have 2 key defenders suspended, so I'm banking on a Pukki Party

            Salah Foden Jota Gallagher Brownhill
            Vardy Jimenez Antonio

            1 FT, 0.3 itb. WC available. Have taken 20 points of hits so far this season just because I can't find a time where it seems like I need to WC. Doing well tho ~50k rank.

            I'd like a City def. White + Jimenez --> Cancelo + King I can do with 0.2 still left at the moment, but both Cancelo and King are going to rise this week. At the same time, White is good value, but the problem is I don't have Ramsdale for ARS def cover. Not WC'ing is hurting in these little ways and lower team value. However, with the fixtures it doesn't make sense to take out Jimenez for King this week.

            Any suggestions? Just suck it up and play the WC?

              No need for WC, but you probably need to get Cancelo. Roll, save FT and downgrade Jimi next week with 2FT when his fixtures turn?

                • 8 Years

                I could but King may double rise then I couldn't afford it. Also would be King vs City. Ugh

                  It probably has to be Cancelo, but does it have to be King? Also, you could lose Livra instead of White if needed?

                    I think King is by far the best option. And Livra's selling value for me is even less than White

            Just sold Foden and Duffy for Lamptey and Bernardo.

            Now i have a beching dilemma?
            Gallagher v A Leeds
            EsR v A Utd
            Toney A Spurs
            Antonio H Brighton

            I'm on ESR but that will likely change. Gallagher does better away at big teams who have a go but is he on corners still?. Toney is in form it seems and has pens. Heard Antonio played well and is due a goal. ESR seems to have a little competition amongst he other Arsenal players to take set pieces ..tricky one...who wiuld u drop?

            James Cancelo Rudiger. (Lamptey and Livramento)

            Is Alonso expected to start against Watford? About to pull the trigger on Chilwell to him but questioning if it's possible he's given a break as he's only returned from injury and hasn't played for a while before that, wondering if I ought to wait

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              I’m guessing that’s part of why he came off early today too. Don’t push it as he is the only recognized wing back for that spot.

                  Shoot, that's not good. Not sure what to do now as it looks like Chilwell is about to drop again, but the other change I was eyeing up can probably wait and this is more of a long-term one, but at the same time I need to ensure I field 11 this week

                Logically thinking, he really should start vs. Watford even though some don't want to see it.

                He was subbed on 77 mins. He is naturally pretty fit (although Tuchel did say he was tired) - but you'd think that's been done because they want to keep him fresh for midweek.

                It feels like a good game to give to Azpi, but James is the one who looked a bit more off it today.

                1. NateDog
                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 20 days ago

                  Hm was James poor today? The worry I have often with Tuchel is he tends to run a bit hot and cold with certain players sometimes. Chilwell couldn't get near the team for a long time this season with Alonso playing well, then Alonso had 1.5 not great games and he didn't come back until now. I did worry something similar could happen with James at some point too (not that I have him), especially with Azpi (another one that's dropped out after being seemingly nailed) and CHO there.

                1 month, 20 days ago

                To put it this way, I would rather have autosub 1 point if he doesn't play, than not going for him and watch him nailing 15 points.

                1. NateDog
                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 20 days ago

                  Yeah that's true, plus it's a longterm move anyway. Just worried I might not have 11 players again if it happens with Foden possibly out still

                  1. Nanoelektronicar

                    1 month, 20 days ago

                    I wouldn't sell Foden even if the price is having less than 11.

                      No I'm definitely not selling! Everyone's been in a rush to do so this week but I have no intention of doing it as long as he's not out longterm. I just have to hope it won't come back to bite me

                  I'd save the FT, Jota is a great player and as bad a Everton have been I don't think you'll suffer too much waiting, he usually get's 7-8 pts max due to being poor on bonus when scoring.
