Gameweek 11 saw 26 goals scored with 4 clean sheets.
This was a gameweek which will be remembered for 2 things.
First is that if you had a differential captain who scored big, you will move up the rankings fairly quickly.
The most captained player was Sterling (MCI, 12.1m, TSB 38.8%), who scored 1 point. Managers who went against the tide and chose Abraham (CHE, 7.9m, TSB 47.8%) would be so happy, as he scored a whopping 12 points. It is also worthwhile to note that Abraham is not really such a differential choice as he had scored 6 goals and 1 assist in 5 previous away games.
The second thing is Lundstram (SHU, 4.8m, TSB 38.3%) continues to reward managers who believes in him, as he scored 2 goals and a clean sheet to score 21 points.
Another talking point is who do you choose between Salah (LIV, 12.3m, TSB 27.9%) and Mane (LIV, 12.0m, TSB 32.4%). From GW03 to GW11, Mane has scored 62 points. Over the same period, Salah has scored 49 points and perhaps more worryingly is that when Liverpool was chasing the game at Aston Villa, Salah was subbed off on 64th minute.
As for Liverpool defenders, Van Dijk (LIV, 6.4m, TSB 42.2%) is the most owned defender at around TSB 42.2%. From GW03 to GW11, he scored 28 points. During the same period, Robertson (LIV, 6.9m, TSB 20.9%) scored 48 points and Alexander-Arnold (LIV, 7.2m, TSB 29.2%) scored 44 points. His owners would be wondering if they should move sideways to one of the Liverpool fullbacks, or invest the money elsewhere.
Leicester continues to impress and secure another win and a 4th clean sheet in 11 games. Soyuncu (LEI, 4.8m, TSB 9.2%) got into the act of scoring big among the defenders, while Vardy (LEI, 9.4m, TSB 26.9%) scored his 10th goal of the season and Maddison (LEI, 7.3m, TSB 16.0%) with his 6th attacking return in 11 games.
Lastly, Pep’s roulette continued with Mendy (MCI, 6.0m, TSB 1.9%) and Cancelo (MCI, 5.3m, TSB 1.6%) benched. There is really no security of starts for any of the defensive assets other than Ederson (MCI, 6.1m, TSB 21.9%), if you want to capitalise on their league-high 5 clean sheets together with Sheffield United.
That’s all for now, and all eyes will be on the biggest clash this season, where Liverpool will host Manchester City in Gameweek 12.
