FPL – GAMEWEEK 13

Premier League is back this weekend after the final International break of this decade. This is truly a special week for Premier League, The SPECIAL ONE is back, Jose Mourinho is back in the league and this time as the Tottenham Hotspur Manager. The man still has 3 PL trophies, that is still more than all the other current premier league managers combined.

With Jose appointed we can expect some underperforming Spurs players to be in our FPL teams in upcoming gameweeks. Liverpool are also now 8 points ahead of second placed Leicester City. This gameweek we see third vs fourth place, i.e. Chelsea vs Manchester City at Etihad Stadium. We also have one more fixture to look out for i.e. Crsytal Palace vs Liverpool.

We are entering a very busy phase of the season and this will be last few games of this astonishing blistering decade of the modern football. We are going to have 9 premier league games till 1st of January 2020, that will be nine games in five and half weeks. Our suggested players are listed below for the upcoming gameweek.
