Liverpool are on the rise, Manchester City slump to mid-table obscurity and Leicester retain top spot in the Gameweek 13 Form vs Fixture Charts.
The fixture chart uses the site fixture ticker, focusing on attack for the next four Gameweeks. The form charts also have attack in mind, studying the number of goals scored per game, while reflecting the format of the site ticker.
Wolves hold their own at the top of the fixture chart, with the favourable run of games continuing for them. Raul Jimenez remains the top transfer target: he has three goals from his last four games and appears to be immune from Europa League rotation. Adama Traore has started to come into our thinking. He looks to be much improved this season, although the underlying statistics are nothing to write home about (four shots and five chances created in his last four appearances).
It's been a testing time for those of us carrying Arsenal assets, with just three goals to show from their last four games. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been disappointing, after a scintillating start to the season, he's scored just once since his 100% record ended in Gameweek 8. He still remains the likeliest source of points going forward though, with 11 shots during this period.
Southampton aren't exactly the most enticing team to be investing in from a fantasy perspective, but Danny Ings has bags of potential if he can keep away from the treatment table. In his most recent spell, he's bagged two goals from five shots on target. He's always in the right places, poaching goals and causing defenders grief. That pair of home fixtures in Gameweek 14 and 15 may be just exciting enough to tempt us into a transfer in.
Leicester retain top spot in the form chart, with some solid performances in recent games, plus their nine goals at St. Mary's included in their metric. Despite that extreme scoreline, their record in other games would equally secure them pole position. Jamie Vardy has hit essential status, smashing in six goals plus two assists in this most recent period.
Chelsea look well-placed for further attacking returns, with Christian Pulisic putting himself right in the conversation after five goals in four games. Tammy Abraham remains great value, having now reached ten goals for the season. Despite a barren spell, I'm expecting Mason Mount to come good again, with easy fixtures just around the corner, once their clash with Manchester City is out of the way in Gameweek 13.
Man City are the side giving us most headaches right now. The fixtures aren't great and the form has been patchy two: admittedly they still make the top three here, but we are used to see them being head and shoulders above the rest. Having one of Raheem Sterling or Kevin De Bruyne looks wise, but a double up is perhaps too much right now. De Bruyne should present the better value in the season as a whole.
