FPL Gameweek 13 Differentials

Gameweek 13 begins about 36 hours after gameweek 12 concludes, making for another rapid turnaround.

That is how a season that has the World Cup in the middle of it operates. To ensure their team is updated, fantasy football managers must be even more attentive than usual.

Given how well-liked some of the assets are, many people will be happy to see Arsenal and Manchester City play again in the gameweek.

The Top 5 FPL GW13 Differential Picks are listed in this article.

Scamacca (£6.8m, West Ham) vs. Bournemouth (H)

Scamacca has scored twice in his previous two home games, giving him 17 FPL points and quietly beginning to establish himself in the Premier League. 

He has replaced Antonio as West Ham’s primary striker and has assumed his position. Scamacca should be your first choice if you need a Differential Budget striker option because Jesus and Toney both have four yellow cards.

In comparison to away games, Scamacca has done substantially better at home. West Ham will play Bournemouth, Palace, and Leicester, rated 19th, 11th, and 20th for goals conceded this season, at home in three of their final four matches before the World Cup break.

Jack Harrison (£6.0m, Leeds United) vs. Fulham (H)

Even with trips to Liverpool and Tottenham, Leeds’ remaining fixtures are still enjoyable because they feature matches against Fulham and Bournemouth.

The latter is a Gameweek 13 trademark, as Jesse Marsch’s team has been effective at creating opportunities but wasteful at converting them.

Harrison leads the Leeds team in key passes made per game, averaging 2.3 to Brenden Aaronson’s 1.6, a significant gap from the next player.

The winger also has the most assists with three. In Gameweek 13, he can post offensive returns.

Joachim Andersen (£4.5m, Crystal Palace) vs. Everton (A)

Everton (A), Southampton (H), West Ham (A), and Forest (A) are among the favorable matchups for Palace until GW16. 

The team they will face in GW13, Everton, is now the league’s weakest attacking team. Everton ranks 20th for xG (0.98), 20th for big opportunities (1), 20th for shots inside the box (11), and 20th for shots on target over the past three gameweeks (2).

The best Palace defender to pick has been a topic of discussion. However, Andersen carries a greater danger of attacking and scoring bonus points than Guehi and is, therefore, worth the extra 0.1 million. Guehi has received three yellow cards, which raises the possibility of a ban in the upcoming weeks.

Diogo Dalot (£4.6m, Man United) vs. Chelsea (A)

Manchester United faces a challenging matchup in GW13, but they have a strong run of games leading up to the World Cup.

They then host West Ham before traveling to Aston Villa and Fulham. Diogo Dalot may now be able to contribute offensively in Gameweek 13.

Under Graham Potter, Chelsea has significantly improved, although United is doing okay, given their transitional stage.

The only players on this team who average more critical passes per game than Dalot (1.5) are Bruno Fernandes (2.6) and Jadon Sancho (1.6), and the right-back also averages 0.9 shots per game.

Ben White (£4.5m, Arsenal) vs. Southampton (A)

The gift that we have continued to ignore is a solid defender at 4.5 million for the top team in the league at just 6.2% TSB. 

In addition to being the most outstanding defensive team in the Premier League, Arsenal also ranks second in the league for xGC (10.79) and joint third for Big Chances Conceded (15).

After several strong performances, White, who began the season as an RB, has taken over that position. In recent weeks, he has become more self-assured and taken more aggressive positions.

Arsenal and White have favorable matchups until the World Cup break in GW16. Because of the poor attacking numbers and ranking of their opponents, White may receive returns from both sides of the field.
