You’re in the right place if you’re looking for Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 12 tips.
The English Premier League enters gameweek 12 as the action takes place in the midweek. Arsenal lead the league table comfortably after Liverpool handed Manchester City their first defeat of the season. The last gameweek saw the English Premier League’s top goalscorer fail to score, and that cost a few points in the team of the Fantasy Premier League managers. As Gameweek 12 approaches, we bring you a few tips that could help in team selection.
Matches to target
The gameweek will feature nine matches. The fixture between Arsenal and Manchester City was postponed due to Arsenal’s UEFA Europa League match. This means that some of the point-earning players won’t be available for selection. We have selected some of the matches that could give Fantasy Premier League managers a chance to move up in the rankings.
Brighton vs Nottingham Forest
Gameweek 12 will start with the bottom-of-the-table side, Nottingham Forest, facing a Brighton side that is on a two-match losing streak. The Seagulls have failed to register a win under the new manager and this is their biggest chance to do so. Forest have lost their seventh match this season, and their form isn’t looking great. This is a huge chance for Brighton to earn three points.
Brentford vs Chelsea
Chelsea are starting to settle under Graham Potter. The Blues are on a four-match winning streak in the league and will look to make it five wins in five. They will face a Brentford side that has won their last game. However, it won’t be easy for them to score against a Chelsea side that has kept clean sheets in the last four matches in all competitions. Chelsea players will be the main targets of this match.
Newcastle United vs Everton
After managing to earn a point at Old Trafford, the Magpies will look to continue their good form against Frank Lampard’s Everton. Newcastle United are on a five-match unbeaten run and will look for three points against this Everton side. The Merseyside team has lost their last two matches and will definitely look to take something from this game. The hosts won’t allow them to take a point easily and are the slight favourites to win the match.
Liverpool vs West Ham United
Liverpool will face the test of David Moyes’ West Ham United in their next fixture in the English Premier League. After a win against the defending champions, the Reds will be high on confidence and will be eyeing three points from this game. West Ham United like to sit and break the opposition’s defence on counterattacks. Liverpool won’t allow them to make these moves this time and will remain on the front foot in the match.
Manchester United vs Tottenham Hotspur
This will be the biggest match of the gameweek. Two of the teams fighting for the top four positions will battle each other at Old Trafford. Spurs have performed better than their weekend opponents, but it won’t be easy for them to beat this Manchester United side. The Red Devils have already registered wins against Arsenal and Liverpool. Spurs will be their next target.
Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 12 tips 2022/23: Players to target
The gameweek 11 of the English Premier League 2022/23 season experienced only 15 goals. Two matches in the gameweek ended in a goalless draw, while three teams earned a narrow 1-0 victory. Ivan Toney, Aleksandar Mitrovic, Dominic Solanke and Harry Kane got themselves on the score sheet. Mason Mount, Bukayo Saka and Mohamed Salah also gave points to their Fantasy Premier League managers. We will now look at some of the players who can become a part of your Fantasy Premier League team.
Goalkeepers to target for Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 12
Jose Sa (5.1): Jose Sa saved a penalty in the last match and kept a clean sheet for his team. Wolves have a comparatively easy run of fixtures and they can keep 2-3 clean sheets in the next four fixtures. He could be included in the team. The price of the Portuguese goalkeeper has seen an increase of 0.1.
Kepa Arrizabalaga (4.4): Kepa is becoming a regular under Graham Potter. Edouard Mendy was injured for a few matches and that gave a chance to the Spanish keeper. He has made three appearances and kept two clean sheets. The 28-year-old made seven saves against Aston Villa and is likely to remain at the heart of the defence for the Blues. He can save a bit of money on the team.
Kieran Trippier (5.7): The English full-back will play against Everton in the game this weekend. He is on set-piece duty for the Magpies and is capable of scoring from a free-kick. Trippier has a goal and an assist to his name. He could keep a clean sheet this week.
Joel Ward, Joachim Andersen & Marc Guehi (4.5, 4.5 & 4.3): Crystal Palace have a comparatively easy run of fixtures. They can keep clean sheets and managed to keep one in the last game. These three players are a regular part of the backline and could be money-saving options.
Trevoh Chalobah (4.7): The Chelsea defender has deputised well in this injury-hit Chelsea backline. The Blues kept a clean sheet in the last match and have four clean sheets in their last four competitive matches. He is another money-saving option for the team.
Mason Mount (7.7): It looks like Mason Mount is finding his touch before the World Cup. The Chelsea playmaker scored a brace in the last match and earned 15 fantasy points. His current form hints that the player will contribute more in the coming matches and will be a key player in Chelsea’s run.
Mohamed Salah (12.7): Last weekend’s winner would have boosted Mo Salah’s confidence. Some of the highest-credited players won’t feature this week, while the likes of Harry Kane and Son will face a Manchester United side that won’t give them easy chances. This makes Salah the only big-money option who can give points.
Leandro Trossard (6.9): The Belgian international has been goalless in the last two matches. His hat trick at Anfield was followed by a goal drought. He will lead the charge for Brighton as they look to return to winning ways in the league.
Miguel Almiron (5.2): The Paraguayan has scored three goals in three games this month. He is one of the most in-form players for Newcastle United. He will look to break Everton’s defence in the match.
Dominic Solanke (5.8): The Cherries striker has earned 20 points in the last two Fantasy Premier League game weeks. He scored a goal and provided an assist in the last match. Solanke could play a key role against Southampton.
Callum Wilson (7.3): The 30-year-old Newcastle United striker is also capable of scoring goals. He has returned from injury recently and is the first-choice number nine in the absence of Isak. The Englishman can chip in with a few goals and could become a part of your team.
Patson Daka (5.7): The striker might lose his role as the number nine but is likely to feature on the right side for a struggling Leicester City side. He is the second-highest goalscorer for the Foxes and will play a key role in this match.
Aleksandar Mitrovic (6.7): The Serbian added his seventh goal of the season last weekend. He is the main player in the Fulham squad and plays a key role in their attack. If he continues in the same form, Mitrovic might reach the 20-goal mark.
