Trent Alexander-Arnold may have been overshadowed by teammate Andrew Robertson in terms of fantasy output over the last few weeks, but FPL Swot suggests that we hold firm. The underlying statistics remain impressive and favourable fixtures are also here.

Chances created: 1️⃣6️⃣ (1st)
Crosses: 6️⃣4️⃣ (1st)
14 Brighton (h)

Ben Dinnery provides an update on the injured Sergio Aguero, who’s likely to miss most of the congested schedule. It could make his teammates Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling rotation proof over this crucial spell of upcoming Premier League games.
Aguero has been ruled out of the Manchester derby on December 7th. "We will miss Sergio. We have had some problems with injuries but we will wait for him and meanwhile we have [Jesus] and Sterling who can play in that position. We will live without him for a while." #MCFC

FPL Swede crunches the underlying statistics for shots over the course of the last three games. Jimenez and Lundstram are the names at the top of the metric. They face each other this weekend and it would be a mistake to consider benching either of them going off this data.
Total shots: (over the last 3 GWs)
Jimenez: 19 👀
Aubameyang: 6 🤔
Sterling: 5 😬

FPL Salah considers clean sheet output so far this season. Manchester City are the only traditional top six side in the mix, with the likes of Burnley, Sheffield United and Brighton being very impressive. It will give us some headaches of who to bench in the coming weeks.
Top 5 for clean sheets
Man City: 5
Sheffiled United: 5
Weird old season.#FPL

FPL Prince has provided an alternative viewpoint on Sterling who has been unpopular in recent weeks. His positioning could benefit from Aguero’s absence: his fantasy returns have been much more fruitful with Gabriel Jesus leading the line in the Manchester City attack.
With Aguero out does that mean we now keep Sterling?
👕 Should play all games
👕 Could play upfront
👕 Newcastle and Burnley up next are reasonable
👕 Has been unlucky with VAR
Certainly an argument for it 👍 #FPL

Gabriel Jesus will see some transfers in the market, but Jimenez has been a more popular target given his successes this calendar year. He’s on form and the fixtures remain appetising for the next three gameweeks too. He’s fixture proof too remember!
Jimenez 2019 all comps for 🐺🐺🐺
Why do I not have him in my team? 😭

FPL Darkhorse has provided some fantastic analysis on player value across positions. It’s no surprise to see Jamie Vardy top of the pile, but you may find some surprises in the midfield, where output is not always directly correlated with FPL price, as budget gems emerge.
Want to find the real gems not being disturbed by price? List of top performing players value in points returned per pricetag. Minutes played not counted in, and took the whole season so far. Top 20 forward, mids and def, top 10 gk. Feel free to retweet. #fpl @BenDinnery pic.twitter.com/48koafSzea

Fantasy Football Pundits bring the FPL Gameweek 14 captain poll and it’s likely to be yet another close one. Jamie Vardy and Sadio Mane are both worthy options, with Sterling and Abraham also capable of delivering big fantasy points in their games too.

FPL General shares his thoughts ahead of the deadline. The watchlist sees another update, with Spurs players on the agenda given their new manager bounce under Mourinho and attacking performance last weekend against West Ham at the London Stadium.
