Gameweek 13 excites as gameweek 14 looms

A last minute Roberto Firmino winner earned Liverpool top spot over Tottenham on Wednesday before a Marcus Rashford masterclass closed off the gameweek as Manchester United sealed the win over bottom-placed Sheffield United last night.

With dropped points at the top being the tone set on Tuesday, as Chelsea were beaten by Wolves and Manchester City only managed a draw against West Brom, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur had it all to play for on Wednesday.

An early Mohamed Salah goal put the champions in front before Son Heung Min leveled proceedings on the half hour mark. José Mourinho’s side stepped up the gears in the second period, and despite Steven Bergwijn coming close, Spur failed to get the lead.

Jurgen Klopp opted not to make any substitutions and the hard work of the eleven on the pitch paid dividends when an Andy Robertson corner found the head of Liverpool’s number nine and kop-favourite, Roberto Firmino. The Reds are now clear at the top of the pile and will kick off gameweek fourteen away at Crystal Palace tomorrow afternoon.

Everton’s 2-0 win over Leicester City put them into fifth place while Southampton’s 1-1 draw with Arsenal helped The Saints to third in the Premier League table and left The Gunners battling in fifteenth. Southampton next host Manchester City while Arsenal travel to Merseyside to take on Everton, both games take place tomorrow and could result in big changes at the top of the table. A lot could happen at the bottom as well though, with Newcastle United taking on Fulham in an exciting Saturday night clash.

On Sunday, Leicester travel to Spurs while Manchester United take on Leeds. Marcelo Bielsa’s side are coming off a remarkable 5-2 win over Newcastle on Wednesday while a Marcus Rashford brace helped The Red Devils put one over Sheffield United last night. Gameweek fourteen concludes with two Monday Night Football clashes as Burnley host Wolves and Chelsea take on West Ham in an all-London affair.

For all our Fantasy Premier League managers, a reminder that the Gameweek 14 deadline is on Saturday, December 19th at 13:00.
