Premier League: Fantasy gameweek 14 preview

Original article published 27 October 2022

Erling Haaland was once again the star of the show in gameweek 13, with the Manchester City ace registering another two goals in his team's 3-1 win over Brighton.

Some surprise results elsewhere, including Liverpool's defeat at Nottingham Forest, and key players being rested made it a tricky week for Fantasy League players.

None of the top six face each other this weekend, so there looks like a good chance for players to make up on lost points in recent weeks.

Midfielder - Mason Mount

Graham Potter takes his new team to the south coast to face his former club this Saturday, as Brighton and Chelsea do battle at the Amex Stadium.

The Blues look to be thriving under their new boss and are on an eight-game unbeaten run in all competitions heading into this 15:00 kick off.

In stark contrast, Brighton – who are now 25/1 to be relegated - are yet to win in five games under their new manager Roberto De Zerbi and have slipped outside of the top-eight.

Mason Mount has become a key figure under Potter, starting all of the last five Premier League games and bagging a brace in the 0-2 win at Aston Villa earlier this month, and at £7.7million, he looks a value addition to any squad.

Midfielder - Eberechi Eze

As ever, Palace are proving to be a tough nut to crack at Selhurst Park and have collected 10 of their 13 points on home soil this term.

They will go in search of a third consecutive home win on Saturday, against a Southampton side who have lost four of their six away games so far this season.

Patrick Vieira often goes with a more attacking system at home – with Palace 10/11 to collect the three points - and one man in fine form, having enjoyed a run in the team, is Eberechi Eze.

The England hopeful has scored in the last two Palace home games and has already got 49 Fantasy points to his name going into this clash with Saints. Eze also scored when these two teams last met – at St Mary's back in April.

Defender – Gabriel Magalhaes

At just £5.1million, Arsenal centre-back Gabriel is a bargain addition to your Fantasy League team and also offers a goal threat at set-pieces.

The Brazilian has scored 46 points this season, with six of those bonus points, as the Gunners prepare to face the Premier League's bottom club.

Nottingham Forest are still holding everyone else up despite their shock win over Liverpool, with Steve Cooper's men scoring just eight goals in their opening 12 league games.

Forest have played six games on the road and have managed just one goal, in a 1-1 draw at Everton, and face an Arsenal team who will be determined to get back on track after their slip up at Southampton last weekend.

Defender - Eric Dier

Bournemouth go into Saturday's home clash with Tottenham off the back of consecutive defeats and failing to score in those losses to Southampton and West Ham.

Spurs have also struggled in recent weeks, failing to collect a win in their last three games in all competitions – although they remain third in the Premier League table.

Antonio Conte often goes back to basics during tough times, which is likely to see the Italian make Tottenham hard to beat.

Eric Dier has been an influential figure this season, highlighted by the 47 Fantasy points he has racked up. The England international has also got two goals to his name, so could also be a danger in the opposition's penalty area.

Forward – Ivan Toney

Brentford have lost just one of their six home league games this season and have kept two clean sheets in their last two matches at the Brentford Community Stadium.

One of the best fixtures to have following a heavy away defeat last weekend would be a home clash with Wolves, who have collected just one point from their six away league games.

Wanderers – who currently have caretaker Steve Davis in charge - have scored just two goals during that run and are second from bottom, currently five points behind Saturday's opponents.

Ivan Toney already has eight goals to his name this term and will be desperate to win a place on the England plane heading to Qatar later this month. Toney, who is 6/4 to score anytime, will see this as a perfect chance to add to his tally.

The 26-year-old scored home and away against Wolves last season and although his Fantasy League price has increased to £7.5million, looks like a good addition.
