With three clear sheets in his final 4 video games in all competitions – and only one objective conceded in his final 4 within the Premier League – Edouard Mendy (£5.2m) is the standout goalkeeper selection for Gameweek 11.

The Senegal worldwide noticed his value rise for the second time since becoming a member of the Blues over the previous week though there are eight goalkeepers who’re nonetheless costlier than the 28-year-old, so he stays a stable funding.

Amid Pep Guardiola’s penchant for heavy rotation, one man who is not going to be axed any time quickly is the membership’s undisputed primary Ederson (£6m).

The Brazilian is the costliest goalkeeper on the sport though the assure that he’ll begin makes him a useful commodity, particularly with Guardiola having chopped and adjusted most of the defenders in entrance of his goalkeeper.

Metropolis face Fulham at residence of their subsequent fixture, with the likes of West Brom (H) and Newcastle (H) to observe earlier than the top of the yr.


Chelsea duo Ben Chilwell (£6.2m) and Reece James (£5.2m) proceed to be the preferred defensive picks, with a mixed whole of over 300,000 FPL bosses selecting to herald the England worldwide full-backs this week.

The Blues have each probability of retaining one other clear sheet of their residence conflict with Leeds United on Saturday, whereas Chilwell and James each supply productiveness in attacking areas and needs to be recent and raring to go after being given the night time off for the 4-Zero win over Sevilla in midweek.

The West Ham left-back has created extra possibilities (18) than every other defender within the Premier League after 10 matches – the identical quantity as Heung-min Son and Riyad Mahrez, and greater than Marcus Rashford (16) and Mason Mount (15).

In the meantime, it appears the 2 FPL bargains of the 2020-21 season, Max Kilman (£4.3m) and Tyrick Mitchell (£4.1m) are not computerized picks and so Nathaniel Phillips (£4m), who may proceed at centre-back for injury-hit Liverpool, ought to enter your ideas as a substitute.


Diogo Jota (£6.9m) maintained his massively spectacular begin to life as a Liverpool participant with one other objective within the 1-1 draw with Brighton and can absolutely retain his place as Jurgen Klopp appears to be like to capitalise on the 24-year-old’s polished kind.

He stays accessible at a cut price value too, particularly when in comparison with each Sadio Mane (£12.2m) and Mohamed Salah (£12m), and is about to line up towards his former membership at Anfield on Sunday so as to add to the attraction for potential FPL house owners.

Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse (£6.1) is one other who’s having fun with a productive begin to the 2020-21 marketing campaign and as soon as once more demonstrated his set-piece prowess with a objective and an help within the 3-2 defeat to Manchester United.


His value inevitably went up after that show however that should not deter FPL bosses, with the Saints dealing with Brighton (A) and struggling Sheffield United (H) of their subsequent two fixtures to supply loads of potential for big-point scores.

If cash accessible is not a difficulty, and you are not a part of the 57 per cent of gamers that personal him, then Heung-min Son (£9.5m), the highest-scoring participant within the recreation thus far with 87 factors, is price bringing in forward of the north London der.

The South Korean was on the right track within the 3-Three draw with LASK on Thursday night time and can absolutely begin towards Arsenal having scored or assisted in all however one in all his final 4 league video games towards the Gunners in all competitions.


After initially teasing that Harry Kane (£10.9m) may miss the north London der, Jose Mourinho reined within the thoughts video games after Thursday’s attract Austria, insisting that he expects his star striker to be match sufficient to play on Sunday.

The England captain’s file towards the Gunners through the years has been properly documented and he’ll be wanting so as to add to his league tally of 10 objectives towards Spurs’ closest rivals when the perimeters line up at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, welcoming again their followers for the primary time, for the newest chapter.

Jamie Vardy’s (£10.3m) final outing proved an enormous supply of frustration for a lot of FPL managers, with the Leicester Metropolis striker solely managing an help within the 2-1 residence defeat to Fulham.

Nonetheless, it isn’t time to money in on the 33-year-old simply but, with Sheffield United (A) and Brighton (H) up subsequent for Brendan Rodgers’s aspect as they give the impression of being to get again on observe after 4 video games with out a win in all competitions.

Frank Lampard has one thing of a range dilemma heading into Gameweek 11, with Olivier Giroud’s (£6.7m) unimaginable four-goal haul towards Sevilla on Wednesday night time absolutely seeing him begin towards Leeds at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

He’ll doubtless are available for Tammy Abraham (£7.2m), with Timo Werner (£9.5m) being stationed on the left of the assault the place he’s arguably extra harmful as he utilises his tempo on the break.

Danny Ings (£8.3m), in the meantime, is one to observe after he returned to coaching following a prolonged lay-off though it can doubtless be too early for Ralph Hasenhuttl to place him in his beginning XI for the Brighton recreation on Monday, albeit he may properly make a return to the squad.

Who’s the most effective captain choose for Gameweek 11?

An unused substitute for the 0-Zero draw with Porto within the Champions League, Kevin De Bruyne (£11.7m) will come again into Manchester Metropolis’s beginning XI for the assembly with Fulham on the Etihad Stadium wanting so as to add to his 10-point haul from final week.

Albeit buoyed after transferring out of the relegation zone courtesy of their shock 2-1 win at Leicester Metropolis, Scott Parker’s aspect are unlikely to have the ability to include Metropolis and De Bruyne is the plain captain choose given he is one in all few Metropolis attacking gamers that’s sure to begin.

As for another possibility, Kane’s north London der file is just too good to disregard and, with Arsenal going way of one thing of a shaky patch, within the league at the very least, the England ahead shall be out to trigger extra harm to Mikel Arteta’s males and hold Spurs on the high of the desk.
