The first midweek round of the season is shortly upon us, with a Tuesday deadline not to be missed.
It was a mixed weekend for FPL managers, with a low scoring Saturday followed up with a heavy hitting Sunday, as Jamie Vardy, Harry Kane, Heung Min Son and Mohamed Salah returned.
The stand out midweek game sees the top two meet, as Spurs look to cement top spot away at champions Liverpool.
Elsewhere this GW, Wolves entertain Chelsea, whilst Manchester United travel to rock bottom Sheffield United.
Wolves vs. Chelsea: Reece James (5.3)
There is unlikely to be many goals when Wolves meet Chelsea on Tuesday, meaning it is hard to look past the Chelsea full-back pair.
Reece James has proven to be the better value in recent weeks and on another day would have registered a haul in the defeat to Everton.
Ben Chilwell remains an excellent option and owners can consider themselves unlucky not to have had a lot more points than he produced in recent weeks.
Ben Chilwell (6.2)
Rui Patricio (5.5)
Manchester City vs. West Brom: Kevin de Bruyne (11.8)
Manchester City’s home fixture with West Brom is arguably the banker of the GW and it is hard to look past an easy win.
It is always hard to predict a Pep Guardiola team sheet, however Kevin de Bruyne will surely avoid any rotation for a must win game.
De Bruyne has enjoyed a good run of form at the Etihad, producing back to back double digit hauls against Burnley and Fulham.
Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus aren’t immune from rotation, but if they start, the pair are also excellent options.
Raheem Sterling (11.4)
Gabriel Jesus (9.3)
Arsenal vs. Southampton: Danny Ings (8.4)
Arsenal have been on a horrible run of form and one of the last sides they will want to see at the Emirates is an in-form Southampton.
Danny Ings has recovered from injury and owners will have been frustrated with just an assist in an easy Saints win over Sheffield United last weekend.
Jannik Vestergaard is an immense threat from set pieces and you wouldn’t back against either he or Jan Bednerak scoring here.
One of Arsenal’s better players this season has been Kieran Tierney and he is probably due some points.
Jannik Vestergaard (4.9)
Kieran Tierney (5.4)
Leeds United vs. Newcastle United: Patrick Bamford (6.2)
Leeds United have won many fans this season, however they need a result when they host Newcastle United on Wednesday as the sides below them are closing in.
Patrick Bamford has had more chances than any other striker this season and will look to build on his eight goals already this season.
Leeds have struggled from set pieces this season, an issue highlighted by West Ham’s two headed goals on Friday evening.
It’s unclear who will be in defence for Newcastle given their Covid-19 issues, however Ciaran Clark featured against West Brom and looks a good option.
Ciaran Clark (4.9)
Leicester City vs. Everton: Jamie Vardy (10.3)
Two of the “best of the rest” meet on Wednesday evening as Leicester City and Everton look to build on impressive weekend wins.
Jamie Vardy and James Maddison were excellent in the win over Brighton, with both returning double figure points.
For Everton, Dominic Calvert-Lewin remains the best option and has only blanked twice in the first 12 GW’s.
James Maddison (7.0)
Dominic Calvert-Lewin (7.9)
Fulham vs. Brighton: Bobby Decordova-Reid (5.3)
Few saw Fulham claiming four points in fixtures against Leicester, Manchester City and Liverpool; however they look a different side from the one that started the campaign.
Bobby Reid was excellent against Liverpool on Sunday and scored a superb opening goal. The form of Reid means the absence of Alexander Mitrovic isn’t as big as it threatened to be.
Both sides have a decent midfield option in the budget bracket, with Ademola Lookman and Pascal Groß favourable options.
Ademola Lookman (5.0)
Pascal Groß (5.8)
Liverpool vs. Tottenham: Andrew Robertson (7.2)
The stand out fixture of the week is unlikely to see many goals as the divisions top two go head to head.
Jose Mourinho will likely set up to frustrate the hosts once again and will take a goalless draw if offered it now.
Therefore a defensive pick is probably the way to go and Andrew Robertson is the best option from either side.
If there is likely to be a winner from either side then Harry Kane and Mohamed Salah are the best picks.
Harry Kane (10.9)
Mohamed Salah (12.3)
West Ham United vs. Crystal Palace: Saïd Benrahma (6.0)
West Ham’s impressive start to the campaign has gone under the radar and they will be favourites for the visit of Crystal Palace on Wednesday.
Said Benrahma made his first start since his move from Brentford in the win at Leeds United and looked excellent.
At 6.0m the Algerian international represents excellent value and could well be a better pick than the likes of Pablo Fornals and Jared Bowen.
Aaron Cresswell (5.2)
Wilfried Zaha (7.5)
Aston Villa vs. Burnley: Jack Grealish (7.8)
Aston Villa’s incredible start to the campaign continued with a late 1-0 win away at Wolves on Saturday.
They have a favourable fixture in the first of Thursday’s games when they host a Burnley side that are just above the relegation zone.
Jack Grealish returned just two points at Wolves, however remains their best pick and is a very good replacement for those with the injured Diogo Jota.
Matt Targett (4.5)
Chris Wood (6.2)
Sheffield United vs. Manchester United: Bruno Fernandes (10.9)
It is hard to look past a Manchester United win in the final fixture of GW13 as they travel to rock bottom Sheffield United.
Bruno Fernandes has an incredible record on the road since joining United and a double digit return looks on the cards here.
Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba are also good picks for United who will look to build on their excellent away record.
Marcus Rashford (9.4)
Paul Pogba (7.7)
GW13 Dream Team (3-5-2): McCarthy; Chilwell, James, Dias; Fernandes, De Bruyne (C), Grealish, Benrahma, Rashford; Jesus, Bamford
GW12 Dream Team (3-4-3): Meslier (3); Chilwell (2), Dier (2), Robertson (2); Salah (16)(C), Ward-Prowse* (3), Son (5), Grealish (2)*; Wilson (1), Ings (5), Vardy (13)
*Adjusted with Pulisic & Jota injured
