When making FPL decisions many FPL managers mentally predict the outcome of matches
- Who will win?
- Will there be a clean sheet in this match?
- How many goals can I see being scored?
- How many players do I want to play in this game?
Last week our panel predicted 23 wins correctly. With Pilot Flame predicting the most correct results, managing five of the ten matches.
We asked the managers to take a look at the Gameweek 11 fixtures. Here they predict the results and explain what they think this means for FPL decision making.
Southampton v Aston Villa (Fri 20:00)
Man United v Man City (Sat 12:30)
Liverpool v Brighton (Sat 15:00)
Brentford v Norwich (Sat 15:00)
Chelsea v Burnley (Sat 15:00)
Crystal Palace v Wolves(Sat 15:00)
Brighton v Newcastle (Sat 17:30)
Arsenal v Watford (Sun 14:00)
Everton v Spurs (Sun 14:00)
Leeds v Leicester (Sun 14:00)
West Ham v Liverpool (Sun 16:30)
If the panel are correct, Friday and Saturday will be full of home wins meanwhile Sunday will be won by the travelling teams.
FPL Shake n Bake
In terms of FPL, I would strongly advocate rolling a transfer this week if your squad allows you too. We know what chaos international breaks can bring, so coming back after it with two free transfers could be beneficial. If your squad allows/needs a transfer then I guess the sexy/risky pick would be to go for a Spurs asset and hope Conte can revitalise them against an Everton squad which appears to be on a downward trend, however I also like the look of Arsenal assets as they host Watford
I think Southampton will beat a poor Aston Villa. With another Livramento clean sheet likely, dont forget to start him! Man United have just lost Varane for a month which is a big blow and I am still not convinced even after the Spurs win that they are back on track. With City in fine form could see the likes of Foden getting in on the points.
Brentford should have Mbuemo back in and I can see them winning comfortably against Norwich this time out. Chelsea have been impressive and I dont see how Burnley can keep them at bay. It seems likely that the blues defenders will carry on getting forward and adding to their already high points totals.
Patrick Vieira has got Palace Purring and I think at home they will show Wolves how good they are Gallagher and Zaha will be key! Brighton could have Lamptey starting and I expect him to make a big difference to Brighton going forward Newcastle just need January to come but Wilson could nick a goal for the toon.
Arsenal have really turned a corner and are looking more organised with Smith-Rowe in great form I expect him to punish Watford’s shaky defence in Gameweek 11.
Then we go to Everton v Spurs. Everton really looked poor especially in their making at set pieces and were punished in Gameweek 10 by Wolves. The new manager bounce with Conte will be a winning formula for Spurs with Son and Kane both turning up.
Meanwhile Leicester I think will just edge Leeds but will be a tight game with Vardy and Tielemans on the score sheet. Then finally a good game West Ham v Liverpool I think both teams are going well this season and I can see West Ham drawing with them like Brighton managed to do.
Everton’s woes look set to continue as Spurs enjoy a new manager bounce. Arsenal’s fine form I think will also continue in Gameweek 11 at home to Watford. For me, I expect Liverpool edge out a gallant West Ham and that Manchester City win the Manchester derby. These are the four teams I think FPL managers should be focusing their investment in for Gameweek 11.
FPL Talking Points
We’ve been here before… and I may sound like a broken record (see my GW9 picks), but is this the week where Manchester United pull of a big upset off at home? Is this the week where my Spurs assets from a couple Gameweeks ago finally deliver? Is this the week where picking against Salah for the captaincy finally pays off?
ForManchester United it is a resounding NO. With a makeshift defense after the injury to Varane in midweek, I expect City attackers to have a good day in Manchester, so definitely play those Manchester City assets this weekend. Son and Kane should benefit from the new manager bounce and a friendly fixture turn for those looking at premium options in midfield and forward, making early moves to bring them in could work well for FPL managers this week. Finally, West Ham continues to prove excellent value and I see them holding Liverpool to a second consecutive draw.
