Safe Pick – Jamie Vardy vs. Stoke (a)
With 6 goals to his name so far this season, Jamie Vardy ended a run of 3 blanks by scoring a goal in the 2-0 win vs Everton on Sunday.
This week’s opposition, Stoke City, have conceded 20 goals in the Premier League, with only bottom of the table Crystal Palace having conceded more.
New manager Claude Puel creates a defensive platform suitable to counter-attacking football, which as we know from 2015-16, could lead to another Vardy Party on Saturday.
Differential – Tammy Abraham vs. Brighton (h)
Tammy Abraham is taking full advantage of his first team opportunities since the departure of Fernando Llorente and the injury to Wilfred Bony, scoring 4 of Swansea’s 7 goals this season.
On Saturday, Swansea are at home to Brighton who despite a defensive mind-set have only kept 3 clean sheets from the opening 10 games.
After providing an assist in the match vs Arsenal, Abraham is continuing to offer those returns for Starting 11 managers and he should continue to do so this weekend.
Safe Pick – Pascal Groß vs. Swansea (a)
A Brighton midfielder a Safe Pick I hear you say? Well yes, and in my opinion, Pascal Groß is making himself a must have fantasy asset each week.
After creating the most chances in the Bundesliga last season for relegated side Ingolstadt, it should come as no surprise that Gross is becoming a hit for Starting 11 and FPL managers this season.
Gameweek 11 opponents Swansea are currently 17th in the Premier League, having conceded 12 goals this season and have lost 4 of their last 5 matches.
Gross has 3 goals and 5 assists already this season and continues to be key to Brighton’s attacking football.
Differential – Matt Ritchie vs. B’mouth (h)
The first choice set-piece taker for Newcastle, Ritchie has 5 assists this season from the 14 chances he has created.
On Saturday, Newcastle are at home to Bournemouth, who are now in the relegation zone having kept only 1 clean sheet this season.
Playing down the right and supporting front-man Joselu, Ritchie will be heavily involved in Newcastle’s attacking returns and could be the differential you are looking for on Saturday.
Safe Pick – Christian Fuchs vs. Stoke (a)
A mixed start for Leicester City this season, however a new manager offers a new period of stability for this Leicester defence.
A lunchtime kick-off vs Stoke on Saturday, who have lost 4 of their last 6 league games, could be the ideal game for Fuchs and Co. to put in a season-changing performance.
After Sunday’s assist and clean sheet vs Everton, Fuchs will have caught the eye of Starting 11 and FPL managers looking for defensive points in Gameweek 11.
Differential – Ben Mee vs. S’hampton (a)
A win and a clean-sheet during Monday Night Football lifted Burnley to 7th in the league and confidence must be high.
Ben Mee has been key to Burnley’s solid defensive performances this season and on Monday night, won 8 of his 11 duels, helping them secure a 1-0 home win to Newcastle United.
On Saturday, Burnley are away to Southampton, who have only scored 9 goals this season – I expect Burnley to stand firm once again, with Ben Mee racking up the points.
Safe Pick – Nick Pope vs. S’hampton (a)
Since Tom Heaton dislocated his shoulder in September, Nick Pope has literally taken his opportunity with both hands, making 23 saves in his last 5 games which have contributed to 3 clean-sheets.
Are you willing to throw all your eggs in one basket and utilise both Pope and Mee as part of a Burnley defensive stack?
Fortune favours the brave my friends – so be brave, I say.
Differential – Fraser Forster vs. Burnley (h)
Fraser Forster has been ever-present in the Southampton line-up this season, recording 4 clean-sheets and making 29 saves.
Whilst Burnley are looking strong at the back, going forward they have only scored 9 goals this season – only 5 teams have scored less this season.
It’s worth noting that Southampton have conceded only 10 goals themselves this season, leaving Saturday’s match at Turf Moor with 0-0 written all over it!
My captain pick for Saturday is Leicester City’s number one striker, Jamie Vardy.
Stoke City have conceded 20 goals this season and although they beat Watford last weekend, they still allowed the Hornets 15 shots at goal.
If Leicester are given the same number of opportunities in Gameweek 11 at the Bet365 Stadium, Jamie Vardy is likely to take them.
