Fantasy Premier League Tips Week 12
Hello folks, we are fresh off the international break – and it’s time to get back into a big stretch of Premier League action.
We got 12 games over the next 8 weeks before the January transfer window. So here we go - Here are 3 Playas To Play:
Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Crystal Palace)
Did you hear the one about how Ruben Loftus-Cheek destroyed Germany in a friendly 0-0 draw last week, securing the World Cup for England? It didn’t exactly play out like that, but the Chelsea loanee is experiencing a great run of form with Roy Hodgson unleashing the best of the 21-year-old.
Loftus-Cheek has yet to have an FPL points explosion, but hosting Everton is usually the best tonic for that.
Who gets to play the league’s worst defense this week (fresh off sacking their manager no less)? It’s Watford who host the traumatized Hammers of West Ham on Sunday, so this gives you another reason to finally add Brazilian forward Richarlison to your squad.
The 20-year-old is reportedly already attracting interest from England’s biggest clubs after registering four goals in his first 11 EPL matches, and this weekend represents a great opportunity to add to that tally.
Jonas Lossl (Huddersfield)
Huddersfield have shocked us all with their early success this season and if you want to reap the benefits of David Wagner’s good work, grab the team’s leading FPL scorer for only £4.6 — goalkeeper Jonas Lossl.
The 28-year-old Dane has been a rock for a newly promoted side that’s given up less goals than Liverpool and Arsenal. On Saturday, Huddersfield play the second-worst attacking side in the division, Bournemouth. That’s a recipe for success.
Mame Biram Diouf (Stoke City)
Did you hop on the Mame Biram Diouf bandwagon after the Stoke forward scored three goals in three games between game weeks 7 and 9? Well, it’s time to stop, drop and roll off that soon-to-be dumpster fire, especially with Stoke traveling to Brighton for another dreaded edition of Monday Night Football.
Diouf’s price tag and three-week bender might’ve earned him a spot in your starting XI, but just ask Italy, all good things must come to an end.
Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool)
Daniel Sturridge is in contention for a now-rare Liverpool start when the Reds welcome Southampton to Anfield on Saturday.
The 28-year-old striker has only two goals to his name this season, so you could rightly question our wisdom here. But then again, you should never question our wisdom. The Saints will try to do nothing more than frustrate Liverpool’s attacking play, but Jurgen Klopp’s answer to all that negativity will be a Goal of the Year candidate from Studge.
Thanks for tuning in- Remember to comment with your FPL questions or even if you’re seeking life advice. Until next time, adios.
