The Fantasy Premier League FPL Gameweek 13 transfers in charts have been dominated by Leicester City assets so far this International Break.
📽 NEW PATREON VIDEO 📽
During yesterday’s trip down to London for the Official Fantasy Premier League Show, I made a little video Behind the Scenes for patrons!

Jamie Vardy leads the way, but the Foxes playing deeper on the pitch, James Maddison and Çaglar Söyüncü have also been highly popular acquisitions.
Leicester have been the most convincing team to watch in the Premier League in recent weeks. They have the form and fixtures, which is why Luke is considering of swapping Mason Mount for James Maddison in FPL Gameweek 13.
I like the idea of Mount to Maddison. Comparison over last 4 has only one winner.

Everyone is scrambling for Liverpool players as their fixtures swing. Yellow flags for Mohammed Salah and Andrew Robertson are causing some headaches, but Rebant provides a decisive plan of whether to double up in attack or defence.
4⃣ Key reasons why I have doubled up on LFC midfielders (Salah + Mane) over defenders (TAA + Roberto)
– I have had Salah and TAA from the start of the season
– WC used
– Plan on going with a 2 fwd formation (3-5-2/4-4-2) #FPL
Now onto the reasons ⤵️

The argument for a double Liverpool attack is convincing, but the defence could be a wise bet, especially if they can string together some much-needed clean sheets. There’s certainly opportunity to sure things up at the back in their next few fixtures.
Games failed to score in. 🔴 = Liverpool’s next 5
Watford 6 🔴
Palace 6 🔴

Those key injuries, particularly to Andrew Robertson, could be enough to dissuade fantasy managers from jumping on board. It’s all covered in injury guru, Ben Dinnery’s thread on Twitter for FPL Gameweek 13.
Tracking international withdrawals. #InternationalWatch 🚑
Five confirmed absentees so far, with *I suspect* a host of others to follow over the coming days. Updated throughout.

Robertson disappointed to be withdrawn. “I’ve had to listen to the people around me. The fact my ankle has swollen up has made it easier to miss these games. For the last two and a half weeks I’ve not trained at all for Liverpool. I’ve trained the day before a game." #LFC #SCO

This International Break is the final time to take stock of our squads and reflect before the busy festive schedule comes around. Stephan Haugsrud has provided an excellent spreadsheet earmarking the rest times for each team as rotation looms.

It’s a good time to strengthen your bench and one man who could be an excellent enabler is Daryl Janmaat. FPL Hints has targeted this budget defender, who is in fantastic form right now. Watford have three clean sheets in their last five games.

Another defender who’s likely to be popular is Ben Chilwell. He was in sensational form for England over the International Break, notching three assists in quick succession. We’ve seen a similar attacking performance from him in the 9-0 thrashing of Saints.
Ben Chilwell had the stats of a potentially very dangerous player last season…
He’s really starting to hit some form this year and back it up 🔥
Reminds me of a young Leighton Baines! 👌#FPL

Tammy Abraham is the highest owned player in the game and that ownership is showing no signs of slowing down. Luke Wilson analyses ownership over the course of the last few seasons and reflects on where they are now.
With Tammy clicking over to 50% ownership I have looked into the highest ownership % of the last few seasons and the biggest movers.
The biggest ownership I have is Salah last season who hit almost 66% last season at his peak.

Finally, the Planet FPL Podcast have used the International Break to put a very special podcast together, considering issues around racism in football. It’s a fantastic listen and a problem that unfortunately remains prevalent in our beautiful game.
