Sue Speak – GW11 PreviewNovember 5, 2016
Gameweek 10 was a very interesting one, because I forgot to change my team, meaning I retained Kun as my captain. I however left 13 points on the bench from two defenders, and had 4 points in total from my starting defenders. That gave me a total of 59 points and all red arrows. This week though, I’m determined to have all green arrows.
Here are my picks for Gameweek 11.
Tom Heaton – His display against Man United is enough to get him on the list. His impressive saves are a magnet for bonus points, and especially against Palace, whose main man Benteke hasn’t scored in his last 3 games.
Kasper Schmeichel – Leicester have conceded only 2 goals in 5 home games, and have a chance to extend that record against West Brom.
Artur Boruc – Bournemouth play against bottom-placed Sunderland, who have scored only 2 away goals in the league this season. Bournemouth have kept 3 cleansheets in 4 home games, conceding only 1 goal.
Charlie Daniels – The Bournemouth man is their best defender in terms of chance creation, and plays against Sunderland, a team that has scored the least number of goals in the league (7) and conceded the most (20).
Christian Fuchs – The Leicester man is second among defenders for most chances created, after Daley Blind. 34 of his 37 FPL points have been at home, hence he’s a good option to have in your backline.
Virgil Van Dijk – Southampton face a struggling Hull that has lost their last 6 league matches, and has been conceding goal after goal.
Consider Michael Keane.
Kevin de Bruyne – He already has several assists and 2 goals to his name, and can be counted on to deliver points against Middlesbrough.
Eden Hazard – He has scored in each of his last 3 matches, and is in fine form. A must-have for any team.
Sadio Mane – The Liverpool man has 34 points in 4 home matches, and has an impressive record of scoring at home. He is more expensive than Coutinho, but I’d still pick him over the Brazilian.
Mesut Ozil – I tend to avoid choosing players that will be in a derby, but Ozil had to appear here. Did you see his midweek goal? He is in fine goalscoring form, and may get a goal against Spurs.
Consider Nathan Redmond.
Sergio Aguero – His brace against West Brom shows that he’s back to himself. As always, have Kun in your team as long as he’s not injured (not my words, the FPL gods said so.)
Charlie Austin – He already has 4 goals to his name, and could add to that tally against the ever-conceding Hull.
Callum Wilson – Could he get a goal against a Sunderland side that have conceded 20 goals already? My money is on yes.
Consider Andre Gray, Diego Costa and Lukaku (the Chelsea v Everton game will not exactly be easy.)
I’ve gone with Aguero, Charlie Austin, Mesut Ozil and Hazard.
