FPL 2023-24 – Three Things We Learned In Gameweek 13

-

Gameweek 13 of the 2023-24 season provided plenty of twists and turns with a new Premier League leader come the end of the round. From an FPL point of view though, we’ve marked out three key points to focus on with a view to Gameweek 14.

ALEXANDER-ARNOLD A KEY ASSET AGAIN?

For many seasons, Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.9m) has been seen as an important player to own from an FPL perspective, but a slow start this campaign saw him not really talked about in fantasy quarters. However, this has changed over the past couple of weeks and for good reason. A clean sheet and 7 points against Brentford in Gameweek 12 was backed up in Gameweek 13 by Alexander-Arnold scoring the equalising goal for Liverpool vs Man City. The attacking right-back strike was enough to earn him 8 fantasy points. With a kind trio of fixtures ahead for Liverpool on paper, expect Alexander-Arnold to court substantial FPL interest. 

KUDUS ESTABLISHED AMONG WEST HAM ATTACKERS!

Plenty of fanfare greeted the signing of Mohammed Kudus (£6.6m) by West Ham from Ajax this past summer, but the Ghanaian international has taken time to break into the Hammers’ starting line-up. It was Gameweek 10 when Kudus was afforded his first Premier League start, but since then the FPL-listed midfielder has played 90 minutes in each gameweek. Two of his four starts have seen him record double-figure returns, both away from home. Most recently, Kudus set up two goals for West Ham as they came from behind to beat Burnley in Gameweek 13. Such a run of form should now see him attract more concrete fantasy attention moving forwards.

WOLVES DEFENSIVE FRAILTIES WORTH TARGETING!

It took just seven minutes for Wolves to concede their first goal against Fulham this past Monday night, eventually losing by three goals to two in controversial circumstances. However, it’s now ten Premier League fixtures in a row without a clean sheet for Gary O’Neil’s side and this is something that shrewd FPL managers can use to their advantage moving forwards. Gameweek 14 sees Wolves travel to Arsenal and popular attacking assets from the Gunners may be set to profit.
