Safe Spine: Manchester City (vs Southampton)
Manchester City have the prime fixture this weekend: they have the best attack in the league, with 27 goals already, and face a Southampton defence that have conceded 3 goals against Chelsea and Liverpool. City haven’t conceded in 6 Premier League games, whereas Saints have failed to score in their last 5 games: clean sheets are in the bag!
Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling are expected to be among the goals for Manchester City: both have delivered in every home fixtures they’ve featured in this season, with a combined 8 goals and 5 assists between them.
In defence, Ben Mendy and Aymeric Laporte look most likely to acquire attacking returns alongside clean sheets: Mendy has 6 assists this season, with Laporte finding the back of the net once from 9 shots.
Goals Galore: Arsenal vs Liverpool
This Gameweek 11 daily fixture contains goals historically, with both sides in great goalscoring form this season, regularly hitting 3+ goals a game in recent weeks. We look to the midfield for the key action in this game.
Granit Xhaka is central to Arsenal’s set play responsibility, managing a wonderful free kick goal last time out, to add to the other goal and assist he has acquired this season. He should score well for pass completion and tackles in Starting 11’s unique scoring format this week.
For Liverpool, James Milner and Gini Wijnaldum will be providing a similar role in the middle of the park. Milner has penalties to boost his scoring chances and Wijnaldum will be looking to create for Liverpool’s attacking front three.
Clean Sheet Stack: Chelsea (vs Crystal Palace)
Alongside Manchester City, Chelsea have a decent chance of keeping another clean sheet this weekend for Gameweek 11 daily games, having kept 5 clean sheets already. Crystal Palace have been limited to penalties as their only source of goals in the last 3 games.
Marcos Alonso remains lively this season, with one goal and six assists. This should help his scoring potential for attacking returns alongside a clean sheet.
Rudiger and Luiz always pose a threat from set piece situations: Rudiger managed a goal and an assist against Manchester United, with 5 shots over his last 3 games. Luiz also has five shots in his last 3 games. Kepa gets the nod between the sticks for another shut out.
