Fantasy Premier League: Picks & Tips for Gameweek 11

KingFut’s pundits review a Fantasy Premier League (FPL) Gameweek full of goals and hat-tricks, with one of our pundits hitting over 100 points! Keep an eye out for some of the players we tip for your squads ahead of Gameweek 11.

Up until Gameweek 11 our teams were starving for attacking returns, so Leicester City demolishing Southampton 9-0 last Friday was a huge spark to kick things off. Overall, there were 38 goals scored last weekend, with City, Brighton, Chelsea and United all scoring 3+ goals each, and only one other game produced cleansheets – Watford 0-0 Bournemouth. So if you were annoyed with the lack of CS points last GW, you definitely weren’t alone.

Mohamed Korain (@MKorain) was the star of KingFut’s FPL pundits last weekend, and a number of his wildcard picks paid off as he scored 106 points in GW11! Omar Khairallah (@khairallax) is still on vacation so Adam Moustafa (@AdamMousKF) continues his role with KingFut’s FPL pundits this week. Adam and @FPLMad both scored fairly similarly, and thankfully none of our teams were under the GW average. With a number of new differentials on the scene, our team of pundits offer some insight on transfer targets, captain choices and players to keep an eye out for in Gameweek 11.

Gameweek 10 Review:

Fantasy Premier League 2019/20

Mohamed Korain (@MKorain): 100 points club at last! My best GW this season with a total points of 106 points thanks to Chilwell, Vardy and Willian, who got me 51 points combined (that’s what a 9-0 game does of course). Captain Sterling also paid off and I think the WC after 2 GWs is treating me good. My rank also took a massive green arrow from 360K to 16K overall.

Adam Moustafa (@AdamMousKF): With no player over £12m in my squad since playing my wildcard, it’s fair to say a bang average score of 49 could’ve been much worse. Once again I was burned by going with Riyad Mahrez (£8.5m) as my second City cover, but I feel like I should at least give him one more week to prove himself in my XI. Will he survive the Pep Roulette this weekend?

Gameweek 11 Preview:

🔥HOT🔥

Mohamed: Christian Pulisic (£7.2m) – Captain America’s amazing performances continued with a hat-trick against Burnley last Gameweek. I think now he is ahead of CHO in the picking order, and for just £7.2m he looks to be a great valued Chelsea asset.

Adam: Jamie Vardy (£9.3m) – I feel cheated having gone with Aubameyang (£11.1m) over Vardy on my wildcard, but Leicester have looked fantastic and who could’ve predicted they’d blast Southampton 9-0? Nevertheless, Vardy is now the EPL & FPL’s top scorer with six goals in his last four games, with plenty of favourable fixtures still to come.

NOT

Mohamed: Sergio Aguero (£12.1m) – The FPL legend is not reliable – I don’t believe I am saying this but it’s the truth. You simply can’t afford a player whose price is £12+ and does not play regularly. Sell to KdB or Sterling.

Adam: Callum Wilson (£7.9m) – Another one of my wildcard picks gone wrong; forget about the fact he’s blanked in his last three games, he put in a horrific performance at Watford with zero shots! Definitely someone I’m looking to ship out this weekend ahead of the Cherries’ match with United.

👀WATCH👀

Mohamed: Ayoze Pérez (£6.1m) – We all had Pérez at the beginning of the season and sold him after the third or fourth GW. I think now is the right time to consider bringing him in especially after the hat-trick against Southampton. Leicester are good and have many options and if Pérez continues to deliver, he will be a great choice.

Adam: Alexandre Lacazette (£9.3m) – Currently priced the same as Vardy following his return from injury makes it hard to justify fitting the Arsenal frontman into your squads, but last weekend Lacazette looked an even better option than Aubameyang, who was forced on the left of the Gunners’ attacking three. With an ownership of 1.6% he’s also a huge differential at this point.

🤔DIFFERENTIAL?🤔

Mohamed: David Silva (£7.7m) – Three goals and five assists in 8 starts is a nice haul for the Spanish maestro. With all the options in City midfield, he still has Pep’s trust and manages to get a lot of minutes.

Adam: Neal Maupay (£6.0m) – I like the look of Maupay as a third striker; especially ahead of hosting Norwich. Brighton are extremely attacking and Maupay remains Graham Potter’s main man in their front three, with penalty duties as well. The return of Leandro Trossard (£5.8m) should only improve the service the French-Argentine gets.

Captain

Mohamed: Raheem Sterling (£12.1m) – City play against a side who conceded NINE goals against Leicester. I am not saying that scoreline will be repeated but I can’t imagine myself captaining anybody else.

Adam: Raheem Sterling (£12.1m) – City host Southampton for the second time this week, having just beat them 3-1 in the EFL Cup with a number of their bench players. The same side who just lost 9-0 last Friday… Sterling got a complete rest midweek; need I say more?
