In Gameweek 11, “Fergie Time” saved Ten Hag, a young Belgian winger made it to the Premier League, and VAR dominated the headlines again.
Here’s what you need to convey as we prepare FPL Game week 12.
When does FPL Gameweek 12 start?
Saturday November 11th, 10pm AEDT
Wolves host top-flight Tottenham Hotspur in the opening game of FPL Gameweek 12. Pedro Neto (£5.7 I 5.2%)Gary O’Neil’s men will be tasked with one of the toughest tasks of the current Premier League season: stopping Ange Postecoglou’s Spurs.
Hardly anyone expected the Australian to have such an impact throughout his tenure, let alone the first few months, as he sits at the top of the table. He has turned Tottenham into a force to be reckoned with, led by a resurgence Heung-Min Son (£9.6 I 38.9%) and the dynamics James Maddison (£8.1 I 39.7%).
If anything, this game will be a cracker as Spurs look to cement their position at the top of the Premier League, while Wolves, fresh from a devastating late defeat to Sheffield United, look to prove there is life without Neto .
FPL Gameweek 12 notes
Fortunate United saved in stoppage time
Let’s not beat around the bush, Manchester United are not good at the moment. They get beaten against the good teams. Against the smaller teams, they need one last chance to save the day. It was no different against Fulham.
The preceding sequence Bruno Fernandes’ (£8.3 I 12.9%) The injury-time winner at Craven Cottage came straight from the Sunday League; The ball bounced and bounced around, the defenders failed in their attempts to save and the goalkeeper got half a hand from it. But boy, that won’t interest United and Erik Ten Hag.
After a week in hell, they needed this. That doesn’t mean they’re back. It’s hard to imagine a world in which they revive their season, especially given the failure of their many talents this season, including Marcus Rashford (£8.6 / 13.9%), Mason Mount (£6.8 / 0.9%), Andre Onana (£4.8 / 14.5%)and the rest. For FPL managers, selling any United shares is the smartest decision going forward.
Delightful documentary enchants Cherries
Before the weekend, only seven players had provided four assists in a single game. Against Bournemouth, Jeremy Documentary (£6.6 I 2.5%) became the eighth person to do so in the Premier League. He was arguably the most dynamic dribbler in the Premier League and opened the evening with a brilliantly crafted goal courtesy of a beautiful shot from Rodri.
From then on, the young Belgian controlled the game to his will, outsmarting defenders with mesmerizing footwork, stunning them with his direct speed and causing confusion with his floating movements from the left wing inwards, best exemplified by his brilliant assists came Bernando Silvas (£6.3 I 1.6%) first goal. The fact that he is not in City’s best XI is largely due to this Jack Grealish’s (£7.2 I 1.7%) Defensive and tactical superiority is scary for the Premier League and exciting for Pep Guardiola.
It was a little surprising to see City put six goals in the net and fail Erling Haaland (£14.0 I 84.3%) Feature on the score sheet. The Norwegian giants had to be sent off at half-time after suffering a minor ankle injury. Pep assured everyone after the game that he would be back next weekend, but given his high level of ownership, this is still a game to keep an eye on.
The brilliant Bowen is now a must watch
Six away games, six away goals. It is a feat that has never been accomplished before Jarrod Bowen’s (£7.4 I 21.2%) Scored in the 26th minute in West Ham’s 3-2 defeat to Brentford. While the Hammers’ form has waned since their promotion at the start of the season, that of their England international has not yet faltered.
So far, Bowen has seven Premier League goals and one assist to his name; only Erling Haaland (£14.0 I 84.3%), Mohamed Salah (£12.9 I 44.1%)And Heung-Min Son (£9.6 I 38.9%), has put the ball into the net more often than the Englishman this season. It’s hard to believe that Bowen’s ownership isn’t comparable to the goalscoring company he runs. Those who own him can enjoy his performance, which is on track to surpass the 12 goals he scored in his breakthrough 2021-22 season.
Before we move on, let’s take a moment to celebrate Mohammed Kudus’ (£6.5 I 0.5%) extraordinary scissor kick. It was an outstanding goal from an outstanding talent that could boost the Ghanaian’s England career. Watch out for the Premier League.
Unhappy Everton and are we worried about Brighton?
For 84 minutes, Sean Dyche’s Everton effectively shut down Roberto De Zerbi’s normally exciting Brighton attacking machine. Despite dominating 80% of the ball, De Zerbi’s men failed to generate more xG than Dyche’s warriors. Led by James Tarkowski (£4.4 I 3.1%) and its supporting cast of Jordan Pickford (£4.4 I 7.4%) And Jarrad Branthwaite (£4.0 I 2.1%)Everton’s defense looks robust enough to maintain their Premier League status, just as their attacking figures are starting to click.
It shouldn’t necessarily go back to the drawing board for De Zerbi. They are not the first team to fail to bring down the Dyche-organized side, nor will they be the last. But it’s time for FPL owners to part ways with some of Brighton’s stars, such as Kaoru Mitoma (£6.5 I 36.6%), Joao Pedro (£5.3 I 8.9%) And Evan Ferguson (£6.0 I 7.7%)? Or is it worth weathering this storm?
Let’s talk about Sam Johnstone
It’s been an incredibly strange FPL season when it comes to goalkeepers. So far there is no clear candidate. Instead, we’re dealing with a sea of powerful goalkeepers. The prosecution was led Sam Johnstone (£4.6 I 4.4%)who has scored more points (49) than any other goalkeeper in the FPL this season, thanks in large part to his five goals conceded and 2.55 saves per game.
Given the loose fixtures in FPL Gameweek 12 and beyond, including meetings with Everton and Luton Town, is it a challenge for the four-time England international?
Shambolic VAR overshadows Arsenal’s toothless performance
Let’s address the elephant in the room: VAR sucks. We can all agree on that, right? Debate about whether Anthony Gordon’s (£5.7 I 7.8%) Whether the 64th minute winner was valid or not is a pedantic, futile exercise. What isn’t pointless is tarnishing the way Eddie Howes plays Newcastle. Determined and effective are probably the two most appropriate adjectives to describe magpies. A team of misfits well-informed of a frightening prospect from start to finish. They are not to be trifled with.
For Arsenal, who had almost 60% possession, there is no reason to overanalyze and overreact to their first defeat of the season against a team that has dismantled PSG, Manchester United and Manchester City in various competitions this season. What will worry Mikel Arteta is their difficulty breaking through an organized defensive wall like the one presented to them by Newcastle without their influential captain. Martin Odegaard (£8.4 I 18.6%).
Without their captain, whose left foot is a master key that can unlock any door, Kai Havertz (£7.1 I 1.5%) He failed to develop the same creativity in midfield. A real headache for Arteta, who also has to question his goalkeeper, David Raya (£4.8 I 4.4%)who was thrown into the starting lineup with the promise of superiority but failed to manage it expertly Joe Willock’s (£5.3 I 0.1%) Cross that marked the winner. Once again, Arsenal’s goalkeeping debate remains unfinished.
