FPL 2023-24 – Gameweek 14 Fixture Analysis

-

Gameweek 13 began with a hard-fought 1-1 draw between title challengers Man City and Liverpool, although the latter will be by far the happier side after equalising late on to snatch a point. Burnley’s miserable Premier League return continued as they gave up a one-goal lead late on to lose 1-2 at home to West Ham. Luton won their first ever Premier League fixture at Kenilworth Road, beating Crystal Palace 2-1, whilst Newcastle thrashed ten-man Chelsea 4-1. Both Bournemouth and Brighton racked up three goals respectively as each recorded crucial away victories over Sheffield Utd and Nottingham Forest respectively.

Saturday evening was a hugely successful one for Arsenal, who left it late but ultimately got the job done, defeating Brentford 0-1 to go top of the Premier League. Sunday saw Spurs go ahead, but ultimately succumb to defeat for the third Premier League fixture running, losing 1-2 against Aston Villa. Meanwhile, Man Utd emphatically survived the Goodison Park cauldron, overcoming Everton by three goals to nil. 

We’re now counting down the hours until the Gameweek 14 deadline of 13:30 on Saturday. That means it’s time to analyse the latest round of Premier League fixtures and pick out those fixtures worthy of being targeted by FPL managers.

Key Gameweek 14 Fixture Ramifications

The fixture which immediately stands out from an FPL perspective is Liverpool’s home match against Fulham. The Reds have won each of their past six league games at Anfield so far this season, scoring three times in all bar one of those. With that in mind, expect Liverpool attacking assets to prove hugely popular. Mohamed Salah (£13.1m) has found the net at least once in every league fixture at Anfield so far this campaign and the highest FPL scorer after 13 gameweeks will command massive interest. Defender Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.9m) is well worthy of fantasy consideration after accruing 15 points over the past two gameweeks, whilst forward Darwin Nunez (£7.6m) boasts two goals and five assists across his most recent five home Premier League appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Another enticing home fixture that FPL managers will likely look to pounce upon is Arsenal’s clash with Wolves. Gary O’Neil’s men have kept just one Premier League clean sheet all season and a side of Arsenal’s quality going forward are likely to be afforded some success on the back of thrashing Lens 6-0 in the Champions League. Bukayo Saka (£8.8m) is by far the most popular fantasy asset of the Gunners’, but the likes of defender William Saliba (£5.5m) and creative midfielder Martin Odegaard (£8.3m) should also prove significantly popular.

Expect plenty of eyes to be on Brentford’s Bryan Mbeumo (£7.1m), as the Bees take on Luton in Gameweek 14. The FPL-listed midfielder has racked up five attacking returns in as many gameweeks. Elsewhere, Man City’s Erling Haaland (£14.0m) will be backed by many to maintain his scoring form in Gameweek 14 at home to Spurs. Jeremy Doku (£6.8m) should also come into the hosts’ starting XI after being benched in their midweek Champions League win over RB Leipzig.
