With internationals finally over we get a return to the Premier League with week 13. My week 13 Premier League predictions will include FPL matchups to help you choose your team for this weekend’s set of matches.
Prior to the international break the season was rolling right along with the Premier League table starting to even out. This two week break was a chance for some teams to pull together and lay out their plans for their week 13 Premier League matchups while other teams had to go without some of their players. Even worse, several teams return to action without some of their key players. Stay up to date on injuries at any of the following: Premier Injuries, PhysioRoom, or Fantasy Football Scout.
For fantasy Premier League managers playing in the season long official game format making transfers isn’t always the easiest thing thanks to the transfer system they have in place. Even so, there are several players that will need to be moved thanks to their injuries, especially the many FPL players out there, like myself, who need to offload Dimitri Payet.
My week 13 FPL matchups will take a look at which teams have favorable matches to choose players from with an eye on draft format FPL leagues such as Togga as well as FPL DFS (Daily Fantasy Sports) versions like Fanteam.com (unavailable for readers in North America).
For offensive picks in week 13 my top matchups include:
Arsenal – Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez
Crystal Palace – Yohan Cabaye, Yannick Bolasie, and Wilfried Zaha
Everton – Romelu Lukaku, Gerard Delofeu, and Ross Barkley
Swansea – Ki Sung Yeung, Andre Ayew, and Bafetimbi Gomis
Southampton – Dusan Tadic, Sadio Mane, and Graziano Pelle
Leicester City – Jaime Vardy (should be ready to play), Riyad Mahrez, and Marc Albrighton
Newcastle United – Georginio Wijnaldum and Ayoze Perez
Defensive matchups to target:
Manchester United – David De Gea, Marcos Rojo, and Chris Smalling
Arsenal – Petr Cech, Hector Bellerin, and Nacho Monreal
Crystal Palace – Scott Dann
Everton – Leighton Baines (if he returns),
Southampton – Virgil van Dijk (looks ready to return), Jose Fonte, and Cedric
Swansea City – Kyle Naughton and Ashley Williams
Tottenham – Hugo Lloris, Danny Rose, Toby Alderweireld, and Jan Vertonghen
Here are my week 13 Premier League predictions:
|Saturday, November 21|
|10:00ET/15:00BT||Newcastle United||1||v||3||Leicester City|
|Sunday, November 22|
|11:00ET/16:00BT||Tottenham Hotspur||2||v||0||West Ham United|

I do hope that these recommendations for your week 13 fantasy Premier League matchups are helpful. There are plenty of other matches out there to watch out for this weekend and these FPL picks are far from a complete list of players to add to your team. As always, my week 13 Premier League predictions are meant to be a fun way to look at which matches are interesting and could benefit your FPL teams.
