As we get done with the blank gameweek, we go full steam ahead for the final 4 gameweeks of the season until the mid season World Cup break. Here’s a look at the top 5 FPL players to watch out for in gameweek 13 of the 2022/23 season.

5. Wilfried Zaha (£7.5m)

Zaha has had a sea of green fixtures ever since gameweek 10. He has also had 2 returns in 3 gameweeks since that easier run started for Palace. With another points haul this season against Wolves, he now has 5G and 1 A. Palace play 4 teams from the bottom 8 in their next 4 games, which should essentially mean more points hauls for the Ivorian.

A lot of managers would be looking to move to Foden and Saka this week from Trossard, but for those of you without the funds to acquire either of those 2, Zaha is the best midfield alternative.

4. Ben White (£4.5m)

5 cleansheets already in 10 games, and 2 great fixtures coming up against Southampton and Forest – what else do you need from a £4.5m Arsenal defender? With not enough quality budget defenders in the market currently, White seems like such a bargain for FPL managers, accumulating 41 points so far.

An integral part of this Arsenal side that sits on top of the league now, he is a great ‘set and forget’ option until the World Cup. He is owned by just 6% too, which surprisingly makes him a top differential, adding to his value.

3. Darwin Nunez (£8.8m)

Liverpool have a long injury list, with Jota and Diaz among those. This has given way for Nunez to finally get a good run of games to show the league why Liverpool shelved out so much money for the Uruguayan. After scoring against West Ham, he has lined himself up as a great differential against a Forest side who have conceded a staggering 23 goals.

He has a bit of a selfish streak to him in front of goal, which could mean more shots and consequently more chances to score. Evidently, he had 6 shots against West Ham and even hit the woodwork once. It’s a gamble, but with just 4 weeks left until another wildcard, it’s worth a shot.

2. Bukayo Saka (£7.9m)

Saka has silently crept up the ranks in recent weeks. With 0 goals until the first 5 games of the season, he now has 4G and 2A in the 5 games since. Jesus and Martinelli stole the limelight in the first few weeks, but the young English sensation is finally taking over. With points hauls against United, Spurs, and Liverpool in his last 5 games, he has the 2nd highest points for a midfielder this season at 63.

Arsenal face Southampton and Forest in the next 2 weeks, making Saka a fantastic option to have from a team that is flying in the league. He is also on penalties, which is an added advantage.

1. Phil Foden (£8.3m)

In a month where all the big teams play every 3 days, City’s postponed fixture against Arsenal comes as a blessing in disguise. A well-rested Foden could wreak havoc, especially with City looking to bounce back from their first loss of the season. He is the highest scoring midfielder in FPL at the moment, having accumulated 64 points. He has done that by bagging 6G and 4A so far this season, at an xG of 3.5.

City lead their UCL group comfortably, and Pep will look to rest key players like Foden in Europe rather than domestically. With great fixtures until the World Cup, it would be a mistake to not have him in your squads at just £8.3m.
