Game Week 11 Tips

Sponsored by Premier Punt

A fiendish round of fixtures awaits us in game week 11 with the final round of October fixtures taking place on Halloween. We are hoping for more treats than tricks this weekend following last weekend’s lower scoring round compared to the previous two – the average score being just 42 points in GW10.

This season so far seems to be a mix of under achievers and over achievers with West Ham, Leicester City and Chelsea perhaps being the teams most deserving of those labels – and we think you know which label goes with which team by now. Indeed, if you had said before the season started that West Ham and Leicester would be sitting 3rd and 5th in the league respectively, then you would have been laughed out of the pub or told that you were too inebriated. Whilst many FPL managers will feel that these two teams have outstayed their welcome in the top six of England’s top flight, other managers who were early adopters of their players are laughing all the way to the top of their own FPL mini-leagues. Players like West Ham’s Payet and Leicester’s Mahrez and Vardy have brought much joy to managers up and down the land, whilst those managers who have stuck by the beleaguered Chelsea players have largely been left wondering why they are throwing away their transfer budget on expensive flops who are languishing in 15th place in the Premier League.

Ahead of game week 11 we will see a round of fixtures from the last 16 of the League Cup, 13 of those teams are from the Premier League – so it is worth bearing this in mind before making early transfers this week. The League Cup fixtures are as follows:

Tuesday 27th October League Cup Fixtures:

Stoke City Vs. Chelsea

Sheffield Wednesday Vs. Arsenal

Hull City Vs. Leicester City

Everton Vs. Norwich City


Wednesday 28th October League Cup Fixtures:

Man City Vs. Crystal Palace

Liverpool Vs. Bournemouth

Southampton Vs. Aston Villa

Man United Vs. Middlesbrough


A few of the teams who have League Cup fixtures face teams in GW11 who will be fresh, notably Spurs who take on Aston Villa, Sunderland who take on Everton and Newcastle who take on Stoke City. Leicester also have a tough fixture going to West Bromwich Albion who will be fresh and fully prepared to give Leicester’s attacking prowess a stern test.

So, where are our early thoughts lying ahead of Game Week 11?


Game Week 11 Early Tips:

Dirty Harry

Resident podcast tipster Quigliano called it once again last weekend with the return of Harry Kane and there is no denying that Spurs and the England striker look to be bang in form right now. A hat-trick for Kane and 5 goals for Spurs will give them every confidence of going on a roll with the visit of Aston Villa imminent this weekend – especially with them travelling to Southampton On Wednesday. Villa may well have a new manager in place by the time of the Monday Night Football game (which could provide some resistance to Spurs and a much need motivational boost for the Midlands team) but Harry Kane will be top of most people’s lists after his hat-trick heroics.

Will it be a Bony chilling Halloween Weekend?

who to pick for gw11

Will a one legged Bony still be able to score?

Man City face Norwich City this weekend after a dour 0-0 stalemate with their city rivals last weekend and both of these teams have midweek encounters. Man City have much better resources to cope with squad rotation (despite their injuries) and have an arguably better fixture which is crucially at home for both of these fixtures. The question is who will capitalise on this for Man City? Norwich conceded 6 to Newcastle and could be shipping the same number (maybe more?) against City this weekend if they are in the right frame of mind.

Kevin De Bruyne will be a key player as always for City, Raheem Sterling has also impressed recently (although less so against Man Utd) and Wilfried Bony who was poor against Man Utd will look to get back to scoring ways in this fixture. Given that game week 12 is a fixture against Aston Villa, now could be the time to fill your team with City players. KDB, Bony and Sterling are our picks of players until Aguero returns which will probably not be until the end November.

We will be back later this week with our usual captain picks, podcast team and our guest articles – but one last word on our anticipated transfer policy for the next few weeks… GW12 will be followed by another international break so we will be advocating one transfer this week with it being enough to cover GW12 too – leaving you 2 free transfers following the break – something that was key last time round.

    Im going to give the armband to Lukaku??? Thoughts

  2. Brandon

    This is my team

  3. Mills

    Team looks good, I think your biggest conundrum will be whether to play Vardy or Ighalo – it’s a big call to drop Vardy but I can see why up against West Brom. Nicely balanced team that is – what rank are you overall?

  4. Brandon

    Thanx Mills.

    Only reason to choose Ighalo over Vardy is that West Ham’s last Clean Sheet was in GW5.

    Overall rank is appalling… 1,285,902

    What is the podcast league code? The one on the Homepage does not work anymore?

  5. Mills

    Plenty of time to bring it up Brandon… league code should work unless you have already joined. If you are having trouble then email me and I’ll add you via email address.

  6. Brandon

    I found the league thanx.

    Cant wait to see next GW where I am in the list… Looks like I should be round: 972. But DAMN I had to go to page 20 to find my points lol.

    But you right… Still PLENTY of time to make up

  7. Brandon

    PS Love this site, and the podcasts you guys do. Thank you!

  8. Mills

    Haha – Yes, unfortunately Quigliano is up there on page one and I am way off him!

  9. Mills

    Kind words indeed – cheers fella. We are here to stay and always looking to develop the site and content further and we have some exciting ideas in the pipeline… we genuinely love doing the podcasts!

    Kane is a obvious tip this week coming from his hattrick, not sure I will be on the Kane train though. I have Vardy, Martial and Pelle as my forwards with just £0.2m in the bank so I won’t be able to afford him, even if I could afford him, I think the current strikers I have also have good fixtures.
    On defence, I did an early transfer of Galloway for Francis mainly cos of fund otherwise I could’ve gone for Coleman or Stones as my Everton cover. Other defenders are Darmian, Alderweireld, Dawson and Bellerin.
    My midfield seems packed as well – Sanchez, Mahrez, Payet, Ayew & DeBruyne. So its looking like Galloway will be my only transfer or is any transfer worth -4? Please advise. Oh, I have Butland and Ruddy as keepers.

  11. Akram Abdou

    Please help!

    my line up:
    Vardy Pelle Marcial
    Sanchez Mahrez Payet Eriksen (Kouyate)
    Alderweireld Azpilicueta Sagne

    With available funds, I want to transfer De Bruyne for Eriksen or Kouyate and is it worth to do another transfer of Galloway for Sagne or Azpilicueta?

    Thoughts please.

  12. Mills

    Not really worth the -4 for a defender as basically you need them to get the clean sheet to cover it – which is a bit risky. Eriksen and KDB both have a good fixture but KDB is better (but will obviously cost you more) – I’d be getting KDB though for some Man City coverage – Sterling at the least.

  13. Mills

    Stick as you are – no problems there and team is solid. Don’t take the -4

  14. Ademola Olaniun

    My thoughts exactly, Pelle as capt, KDB as vc? What do you think?

  15. Akram Abdou

    Thank you!

  16. Mills

    I’d go KDB captain I think – close call though

  17. Ademola Olaniun

    Ok, so I’m making a switch, KDB captain, Pelle vice
