Three Swans players hit double-figure returns to make the best FPL XI of Gameweek 13

After a stunning comeback victory over Crystal Palace, Swansea City supply three players to the Fantasy Premier League Dream Team for Gameweek 13.

Both Fernando Llorente (£6.1m) and Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.3m) are handed their Dream Team debuts.

Sigurdsson supplied a goal and assist in the Liberty Stadium encounter and has now produced three goals and as many assists in six appearances.

The Icelander is currently second only to Arsenal's Theo Walcott for transfers in ahead of Gameweek 14, as the Swans prepare for a favourable upcoming schedule.

Llorente, who has started two of Bob Bradley’s six matches in charge, emerged from the bench to produce a late brace and an assist in only 25 minutes.

Their team-mate Leroy Fer (£5.0m) earned his second Dream Team call-up, scoring twice in the 5-4 victory.

With six goals and 58 points, the Dutchman is second only to Watford’s Etienne Capoue (£5.0m) for FPL value in midfield.

Elsewhere in the XI, the Dream Team defence boasts a pair of Stoke City assets, courtesy of their 1-0 win at Watford.

Lee Grant (£4.1m) and Bruno Martins Indi (£4.9m) earn their frist Dream Team appearances having helped the Potters to a third clean sheet of the season at Vicarage Road.

They are joined by Hull City's Michael Dawson (£4.4m) and West Bromwich Albion's Gareth McAuley (£4.8m), who both found the net in a 1-1 stalemate at the KCOM Stadium to claim their second Dream Team berths.

In midfield, Sigurdsson and Fer sit alongside Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha (£5.4m), who also profited from the nine-goal thriller at the Liberty Stadium.

Zaha notched a goal and an assist for the Eagles and has now produced attacking returns in five successive Gameweeks.

Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez (£11.3m) earns his fourth Dream Team call-up.

His 14-point haul at home to AFC Bournemouth took him to 87 points, only one behind FPL's leading scorer, Chelsea's Eden Hazard.

Up front, Sergio Aguero earns a fourth appearance in the weekly XI.

A minor doubt for Manchester City’s trip to Burnley, Aguero was the second-most transferred out player in Gameweek 13, with 139,645 FPL managers parting company.

But a brace away to Burnley – the fourth time he has scored twice on his travels in 2016/17 - means the Argentinian has averaged 6.8 points per match this season, more than any other regular starter.

Middlesbrough’s Alvaro Negredo (£6.2m) partners Llorente and Aguero to complete a three-man frontline.

Owned by 12.6% of FPL managers, the Spaniard’s double away to Leicester City ended an 11-match scoring drought and hints at a return to form ahead of a Gameweek 14 meeting with Hull City.
