Kammy: Beat Kammy GW13 Preview

I don’t want to brag, but I’m very happy with 56th! James Maddison, take a bow. Stuart Armstrong popping up with a goal was the cherry on top of a very solid week for me. Now I’m looking to push into the top 50 in Gameweek 13!

Congratulations to all of you who won DOUBLE the cash and the contest credit last week. Let’s see who my team is comprised of for this midweek set of fixtures 👀

Man City the standout fixture!

With the Premier League’s in form side up against West Brom on Tuesday evening, it’s hard to look past them. I’m fearful of Pep’s habit for rotation, but the prospect of a thrashing is too exciting to ignore.

I’ve gone with Phil Foden, Joao Cancelo, Ferran Torres and, returning to my side for the third consecutive week, Kevin de Bruyne. Part of my selection here is with the star budget in mind. I’d prefer the likes of Mahrez instead of Torres, but you can’t have them all!

Whilst they’ve kept three clean sheets in a row, I know full well how easy it is to concede a freak goal, so I’m tripling up on their attack, with only one defender. Cancelo has huge attacking potential, and is all but assured win points. Surely, right??

Leeds prospects due some attention

I feel like I’m betraying Darlow here, but I’ve got to stay loyal to Leeds, and I reckon they should ease to a comfortable win against Newcastle on Wednesday evening.

Bamford has been the man in form for the newly promoted side, scoring 8 goals already this season. He’s only scored 2 from his last 6 games, but a brilliantly taken goal against Chelsea in Gameweek 11 shows he’s still incredibly dangerous.

Raphinha has only played the last 5 games for Leeds, but has settled into the side brilliantly. His goal against Everton is a glimpse of his potential and, at just 2 stars, he’s a good enabler too.

I’m ready to trust Lookman again

It’s been a long and bumpy road, but I’m prepared to let Lookman back into my side. He hasn’t seen the light of day since his panenka attempt in the dying stages of Fulham’s West Ham fixture, but since then he’s actually been performing pretty well.

2 assists and a goal in 4 matches is very productive for a 1 star, and a home fixture against Brighton is a great chance to add to that. It’s also an important game for Fulham, who could well be seeing this fixture as an early crunch match if they’re to remain in the Premier League.

De Gea completes the squad!

Man United have struggled to find much consistency this season but they have been impressive defensively since late October. That culminated in keeping out Man City in Gameweek 12 – no mean feat, given their form!

Do defensive fixtures get better than Sheffield United? As the lowest scoring team in the Premier League so far, the answer is pretty conclusive.


Good luck to every one entering this midweek Beat Kammy contest! Top 50, here I come!
