Best players against their Gameweek 11 opposition
We take a look at some of the best players against their Gameweek 11 opposition. Using previous head-to-head records and underlying stats from the Fantasy Football Scout members area to help us pick out some great FPL picks for the round ahead.
Picking out the best players against their Gameweek 11 opposition could be helpful in making both transfer and captaincy decisions. The more information FPL managers have the better our decisions tend to be in terms of having successful assets in our fantasy teams.
Raheem Sterling v Aston Villa
After his move to Chelsea, many fans did not know what to expect from Sterling in FPL. That has been clarified as of late. Raheem Sterling (£10m) has struggled to gain consistency since joining the Blues. Those inconsistencies have had a negative impact on his FPL appeal.
The Chelsea man has played seven matches so far and returned points in just three. However, his previous record against upcoming opponents could indicate a change in form for Gameweek 11. In the nine matches Sterling has played against Aston Villa, he has returned in five of them. Those returns consist of two goals and three assists.
Wilfried Zaha v Leicester
Crystal Palace have some of the best fixtures in the league up to the World Cup. This led to lots of interest within the FPL community for midfielder Wilfried Zaha (£7.4m). The Crystal Palace man repaid managers faith with a cool five-point return in Gameweek 10. However, that return still left managers wanting more.
We can see from the graphic below that Zaha does have FPL success against his Gameweek 11 opponents. In the 14 matches the winger has played against the Foxes, he has returned in half of them. Those seven returns consist of seven goals and two assists. Against a shaky Leicester defence, it could be time to bring him in for non-owners.
Harvey Barnes v Crystal Palace
Harvey Barnes (£6.9m) has had a disappointing start to the season. The Leicester midfielder has only returned twice in his opening seven matches played. The Foxes face three of the worst defences in the league in the next three matches.
Leicester face Crystal Palace in Gameweek 11. We can see from the graphic that the midfielder has enjoyed plenty of FPL success in the six matches he has played against them. In fact, Barnes has picked up returns in four of them.
Kevin De Bruyne v Liverpool
One player that has had a fantastic start to the season is Belgian Kevin De Bruyne (£12.4m). The midfielder has now racked up 59 points in FPL, making him the second highest scoring midfielder in the game. In the nine matches he has played so far; he has returned significant FPL points in a huge seven of them.
Man City face an out of sorts Liverpool in the round ahead. Against such a tough opponent it could be a surprise that a player can be so consistent against them. De Bruyne has managed to return in half of his matches against Liverpool. Those returns include three goals and five assists.
Harry Kane v Everton
Tottenham striker Harry Kane (£11.4m) has continued to show he is one of the best strikers in Europe. Those brilliantly consistent performances have also translated into FPL, making him one of the best assets of recent years. In the first nine matches Kane has played he has returned in every single one of them excluding Gameweek 1.
Harry Kane has dominated the goals for a while. This could indicate he has a fine record against most teams in the Premier League. He does, however, have a very strong record against Everton. In the 14 games played against the Toffees, Kane has returned in eight of them. Incredibly, six of those returns have hit double digits.
