Pogba

Unbelievable return from injury with a goal and assist for 12 FPL points. That’s made it an incredible 3 goals and 4 assists in 5 starts with only 1 non returning game.  Other than just hard stats he bought energy and dynamism to the Man Utd performance with his box to box display.  Fantastic underlying stats and consistent too.  There’s also only 1 game of the 5 where you would question his output.

Brighton (H)
Watford (A)
Arsenal (A)
Man City (H)
Bournemouth (H)
West Brom (A)
Leicester (A)

Niasse

The £5.0m cheapie forward has started 3 games with another 4 as sub and has scored 5 goals and an assist in those limited minutes. He’s started the last 2 and scored 2 goals and an assist returning in both games and now looks in the box seat to hold his place.   His underlying stats are also good. His transfer would allow a transition to an FPL formation of 3-5-2 if you want to load up on midfielders.  Tricky first game up so potential to leave for 1 more week if required

Southampton (A)
West Ham (H)
Huddersfield (H)
Liverpool (A)
Newcastle (A)
Swansea (H)

Morata

Morata has scored 8 goals and 4 assists in 9 games and 2 part games. He’s also posting good underlying stats and on a pretty consistent basis too.  Potentially tricky entry fixture but after that it’s a sweet run

Liverpool (A)
Swansea (H)
Newcastle (H)
West Ham (A)
Huddersfield (A)
Southampton (H)

SALAH

 2 goals against Southampton in a 16 FPL point haul has made it 4 consecutive games that he’s returned a goal or assist.  It’s now 9 goals and 3 assists in 11 starts and 1 sub appearance.  Good positioning too as he plays high up the pitch on the right side.  At the weekend he had a higher average position than either Firmino, Mane or Coutinho.

Chelsea (H)
Stoke (A)
Brighton (A)
Everton (H)
West Brom (H)
Bournemouth (A)

Wilson

Stunning hat trick against Huddersfield showing some lethal finishing.  While I’m not trying to downplay it, it was a hat trick of 5 shots and an xG from the excellent site understat of 1.07 just to put some caution on it.  To be fair on small numbers he has consistently over performed his xG in his 2 previous seasons in the PL.  However his base overall xG numbers per 90 from those 2 seasons are pretty ordinary to say the least so it’s a good thing he can over perform

However if you’re going to roll the dice now is the time to do it given the next 4 fixtures which are very good

 Swansea (A)
Burnley (H)
Southampton (H)
Crystal Palace (A)
Man Utd (A)
Liverpool (H)

THE SINKING SHIPS

These are the 5 most transferred OUT players so far in the gameweek.




 fantasy premier league transfer tips GW13

Mkhitaryan

6 consecutive blanks and the need to sub him off at an average around the 60 minute mark was obviously the end of the road for Mourinho as he left Mkhitaryan out of the squad for the Newcastle game.

Given his recent form which matches those stats and how well Rashford and Martial played it’s difficult to justify holding

 Brighton (H)
Watford (A)
Arsenal (A)
Man City (H)
Bournemouth (H)
West Brom (A)

Aguero

Didn’t play at all off the bench at the weekend although that helpfully gives everyone the vice captain option rather than a 1 pointer if he came on for a few minutes.  Pep’s comments today seem to reinforce the single striker system if we hadn’t already guessed that so to have Aguero you need to accept that he won’t play every game.  That makes  him a very expensive player to be left on the bench but his returns when he is on the pitch are phenomenal.  Phenomenal doesn’t even begin to describe his underlying stats.

Huddersfield (A)
Southampton (H)
West Ham (H)
Man Utd (A)
Swansea (A)
Spurs (H)

Stones

Injured his hamstring and subbed around the 30th minute mark denying myself and others a clean sheet.  Expected to be out for 4-6 weeks.  Kompany will now partner Otemendi as first choice but Mangala I imagine will also join in the rotation.

Huddersfield (A)
Southampton (H)
West Ham (H)
Man Utd (A)
Swansea (A)
Spurs (H)

Abraham

The on loan Chelsea striker’s 2 goals in gameweek 8 have been followed by 1 assist in the next 4.  That’s a pretty ordinary total of 4 goals and 1 assist in 11 games and 1 sub appearance.  His underlying stats aren’t a disaster but they aren’t very good either and since that GW8 game they’ve been pretty terrible.

To be fair he’s pretty hampered by a defensive minded system but it’s hard to see that getting more aggressive as results get worse.

Has been yellow flagged although on Ben Dinnery’s premierleague injuries site it suggests he’s 25% likely to play compared to the official game site saying 75%.  So that’s has to be worth monitoring.  Good fixture next so you could consider holding for that fixture as he will be ineligible against Chelsea in GW14 which would make an alternative exit point.

Bournemouth (H)
Chelsea (A)
Stoke (A)
West Brom (H)
Man City (H)
Everton (A)

ERIKSEN

3 goals and 3 assists in 12 games isn’t the end of the world but blanking in the last 4 isn’t exactly nerve steadying for his owners.  To make it worse his underlying stats are pretty poor for the price you’re paying. His xA is half that of the much maligned (at least to the weekend) Mesut Ozil.

 To put some balance into this he does over perform his stats traditionally as he can score from range and Harry Kane is usually a lethal finisher of chances created.  However, the underlying stats are lower than previous seasons if not by a huge amount.  He’s just producing underlying stats at an incredibly inconsistent rate.

Good fixtures if you’re thinking of holding

West Brom (H)
Leicester (A)
Watford (A)
Stoke (H)
Brighton (H)
Man City (A)

  1. Hoping for bit of advice. I have both Jones and Stones injured and one free transfer. Stones seems the longer term injury, so looking to replace him.
    Current defence is
    Moreno – Stones – Jones – Kiko – Mariapa

    No money itb, so limited to 5.6 sale price for Stones. I’m considering:

    Mustafi (5.3m)
    Monreal (5.6m)
    Mee or Ward (4.6m)
    Smalling (5.4m) – but would leave me with 2 Man U defenders once Jones is fit

    Probably leaning towards Mustafi because of price, but any thoughts or other suggestions appreciated.

    • I’d go for Stones > Mee as Burnley defense coverage is essential IMO and use funds to upgrade Mariapa to a more reliable option unless $$$ could be better utilized elsewhere in your squad. With the winter break around the corner and rotation a big issue this year (thanks Pep), you want all 15 players able to contribute for the next couple months.

      Cheers and good luck!

  2. Hey guys, how good the transfer of Firmino out for Wilson will be? I’m not sure about it. I will have to take a hit for this transfer but I am really tempted to it. Opinions, please?

    • Wilson has had one good week. I wouldn’t be taking a 4 point hit on that transfer unless I desperately needed the funds for an urgent transfer elsewhere.
