The November international break has not been kind to Fantasy Premier League managers where injuries are concerned.

Brighton star Kaoru Mitoma and West Ham talisman Jarrod Bowen are currently yellow flagged after picking up knocks on international duty. The pair are heavily owned throughout FPL but players around the world will be looking to ditch them in favour of injury-free stars with better fixtures.

So who are the top replacements? Here are the best picks in conjunction with Fantasy Football Hub's powerful AI Points Predictions tool to show their predicted points for FPL Gameweek 13.

  • Fixture: Chelsea (H); Predicted Points: 5.2

For those managers looking for a new midfielder this week, Anthony Gordon provides a budget friendly replacement at under £6m. He has been an ever present in the Newcastle squad over the last four gameweeks, scoring two goals.

The former Everton winger will continue to start regularly with the Magpies suffering all sorts of injuries over the past few months. Harvey Barnes will provide more competition for game time once he returns to full fitness but Gordon has the momentum right now with four goals and four assists in this campaign to date. Opponents Chelsea are also without a clean sheet in their last five matches.

  • Fixture: Luton Town (A); Predicted Points: 5.0

Crystal Palace star Eberechi Eze marked his return to the starting XI in Gameweek 12 with a goal, having assisted from the bench in the previous fixture. He's dominant on set pieces and has the potential to be a key player over the congested festive period.

The Eagles have a great run of matches over the next three gameweeks, facing promoted Luton Town before travelling to West Ham and then hosting Bournemouth. Luton are without a clean sheet so far this season.

Bryan Mbeumo

  • Fixture: Arsenal (H); Predicted Points: 5.0

Bryan Mbeumo remains the standout player at this price point, having delivered six goals and three assists so far this season. It's a challenging fixture this weekend against Arsenal who have five clean sheets for the campaign, but it is at home and his games get easier over the next month or so.

Mbeumo is involved in plenty of set pieces for Brentford, including penalties, converting from the spot on two occasions. He has good recent form too, with two goals and three assists in the last four gameweeks. Keep in mind, however, that Brentford have no match in Gameweek 18 in December.
