FPL – GAMEWEEK 12

The Gameweek everyone was waiting for from the start of the season is here. It is first vs second, it is contender vs defender, it is Liverpool vs Manchester City this weekend!!

Liverpool are 6 points ahead Manchester City at this stage and are unbeaten in the league this season. Last time these two faced each other at Anfield it ended up as a goalless draw. But this time City will be looking to go all guns blazing to close the gap to 3 points before the international break.

We also have one more delicious fixture i.e. Leicester City vs Arsenal on Saturday. Both these matches promises goals, drama and excitment. FPL managers should be looking to grabbing few attacking options out of these teams. Our suggested team last week grabbed 72 points and 14 points from the alternatives players mentioned by us.
