Fantasy Premier League: GW12 Dream Team

GW11 was another highscoring week, however owners of Diogo Jota, Sadio Mane and Riyad Mahrez were left disappointed.

The stand out fixtures are both on Saturday with the Manchester derby the game of the weekend, whilst Chelsea travel to Everton.

Newcastle & Aston Villa had their fixture cancelled last GW, but face West Brom and Wolves respectively.

Leeds United vs. West Ham United: Patrick Bamford (6.2)
The first game of the weekend is on Friday evening as West Ham United travel to face Leeds United.

Patrick Bamford is the highest points scorer for Leeds United and given the amount of chances the host create, it would be hard to back against him building on that.

Rapinha has done well since edging Helder Costa out of the side and both he and full-back Stuart Dallas are other good options.

Other options
Rapinha (5.4)
Stuart Dallas (4.6)

Wolves vs. Aston Villa: Daniel Podence (5.4)
Wolves were thrashed last time out away to Liverpool, however will fancy their chances of getting back on track here.

The sickening injury to Raul Jimenez means the pressure is on the likes of Daniel Podence, Adama Traore and Pedro Neto.

Podence probably offers the biggest threat of the trio and could play up front here.

Villa had a blank fixture in GW11 and Jack Grealish is their best option for the short trip to Molineux.

Other options
Willy Boly (5.5)
Jack Grealish (7.7)

Newcastle United vs. West Brom: Callum Wilson (6.6)
Newcastle United have had a mixed start to the season, however a home game against West Brom is an excellent fixture.

Callum Wilson has been an excellent signing for the hosts, scoring seven goals and providing two assists in just nine league games.

The fixture is unlikely to be a high scoring affair, and defensive options from both sides also look good.

Other options
Jamal Lewis (4.3)
Sam Johnstone (4.5)

Manchester United vs. Manchester City: Bruno Fernandes (10.9)
The first Manchester derby of the season takes place on Saturday, with both sides in need of a result if they are to remain in the title race.

Bruno Fernandes and Kevin de Bruyne have excelled in recent weeks and will be the highest owned options from either side.

In a tough to predict game, I wouldn’t suggest signing players in the Manchester derby; however I certainly wouldn’t be selling either.

Other options
Kevin de Bruyne (11.8)
Riyad Mahrez (8.4)

Everton vs. Chelsea: Christian Pulisic (8.2)
Everton have just one win in their last seven league matches and it doesn’t get any easier for them on Saturday when they entertain Chelsea.

Chelsea are in excellent form and the return to fitness of Christian Pulisic is a massive plus. Pulisic sealed the win against Leeds and you wouldn’t back against him here either.

Both Chelsea full-backs remain good picks; however the mid price strikers in this game, Olivier Giroud and Dominic Calvert-Lewin are also decent options.

Other options
Olivier Giroud (6.7)
Dominic Calvert-Lewin (8.0)

Southampton vs. Sheffield United: Danny Ings (8.3)
An in-form Southampton entertain rock bottom Sheffield United in the first of the Sunday fixtures.

Danny Ings returned off the bench on Monday, scoring the winner against an inconsistent Brighton side.

Ings remains the best pick for Southampton and given that he has proven his fitness, he represents excellent value at 8.3.

Alex McCarthy is having a very good campaign and both he and James Ward Prowse are other Saints options.

Other options
Alex McCarthy (4.6)
James Ward Prowse (6.2)

Crystal Palace vs. Tottenham: Harry Kane (10.9)
League leaders Tottenham will fancy their chances of recording a sixth win in seven when they travel to an inconsistent Crystal Palace.

It’s no surprise that the best two options in this game are Harry Kane and Heung Min Son, the two highest scorers in the 2020-21 season.

Defensively Spurs have been excellent in this good run, conceding just once in their last six matches, meaning Sergio Reguilon and Eric Dier are decent options.

Other options
Heung Min Son (9.6)
Sergio Reguilon (5.7)

Fulham vs. Liverpool: Mohamed Salah (12.3)
Liverpool will fancy their chances of racking up a cricket score when they travel to Fulham on Sunday.

Fulham have improved in recent weeks, however it’s hard to look past any easy away win and Mohamed Salah looks the best option.

Diogo Jota and Andrew Robertson are good mid priced options and btoh are very good form.

Other options
Diogo Jota (7.0)
Andrew Robertson (7.2)

Arsenal vs. Burnley: Pierre Emerick Aubameyang (11.5)
Arsenal are enduring a horrible run of form, however have a very good record against Burnley and will surely get back on track.

Pierre Emerick Aubameyang has just two goals this season, however remains the best option for the out of form Gunners.

Hector Bellerin is having a dodgy season, but keeps chipping in with FPL returns and could be a good pick at 5.2

Other options
Hector Bellerin (5.2)
Chris Wood (6.2)

Leicester City vs. Brighton: Jamie Vardy (10.3)
Both Leicester and Brighton have struggled for consistency in recent weeks ahead of their meeting on Sunday evening.

Jamie Vardy hasn’t been in great form of late, however still has two goals and an assist in his last four.

Ayoze Perez returned to the XI against Sheffield United and opened his account for the season and is a decent mid-priced midfield option along with James Maddison.

Other options
James Maddison (7.0)
Ayoze Perez (6.0)

GW12 Dream Team (3-4-3): Meslier; Chilwell, Dier, Robertson; Salah (C), Jota, Son, Pulisic; Wilson, Ings, Vardy

GW11 Dream Team: (4-5-1): Johnstone (0); Lamptey (1), Cancelo (6), Chilwell (2), James (5); Jota (1), De Bruyne (28)(C), Fernandes (5), Mahrez (4), Son (13); Vardy (8)
Total: 73
