Does it get any better than mid-week Premier League action?
If you had a disappointing Gameweek 11, you have less time to dwell on it!
On the other hand, if you put up some big numbers in Gameweek 11, then it’s perfect for keeping the momentum rolling.
We saw Liverpool and Mohamed Salah return to form with a mid-week 7-1 Champions League win followed by a 1-0 courageous victory against reigning champions Manchester City on the weekend.
Salah scored 4 goals across the 2 matches and looks to be at his sharpest for this season. I’ll be looking to the Egyptian for my captaincy this week. If you need advice on captaincy, you can check out our Bookie’s Advantage article for gameweek 12
There’s plenty to take note of this week so let’s get straight into it.
Remember to give the authors a follow if you found the information helpful!
Be Careful Of Deadline Timing
Mid-week gameweeks are amazing but make sure you set your team before the deadline!
6PM BST on Tuesday evening is the all-important deadline for Gameweek 12.
Reece James Replacements
Reece James has been added to the long-term injury list, so it’s time to ship him out.
There aren’t many defensive options that stand out at the moment.
Luckily for us, BigManBakar has highlighted that Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson are now differentials at this point after they were dropped by many managers due to their lacklustre start to the season.
With Liverpool looking rejuvenated, transferring them in could pay off big time.
Ivan Toney – The Real Deal
Ivan Toney was promoted with Brentford last season after scoring huge in the Championship in the 20/21 season (31 Goals, 10 Assists).
Toney performed well last season, providing 12 goals & 5 assists for the Bees to help keep their spot secured in the Premier League.
Toney has taken his game to another level this season, recording 8 goals and 2 assists after only 10 matches. This includes penalties and free kick duties.
I would highly consider looking at the Englishman if he isn’t in your lineup already.
Mason Mount Revival
Mason Mount started this season in poor form. Whether it was due to his personal performances or previous manager Thomas Tuchel’s tactics is still up for debate.
However, Mount appears to have turned a corner over the last few weeks under new gaffer Graham Potter.
After recording only 1 assist in his first 7 matches, he has 2 goals and 2 assists in his last 2 games.
He has a favourable fixture this week against Brentford, which could be taken advantage of at a budget price.
Sam FPL Eye Test
Sam FPL has some of my favourite content with his weekly ‘Eye Test’. It is essential to watch premier league matches and identify which players are getting into good positions and looking sharp overall to help decide on your FPL team.
I agree with all of the below insights and would recommend considering all players mentioned.
