Fantasy Premier League Team of the Week for Gameweek 11

Gameweek 11 of Fantasy Premier League saw Sheffield United’s John Lundstram continue his surprising charge as the game’s best ‘defender’, whilst the division’s three most selected forwards all delivered goals in an entertaining round of fixtures.

It’s that time of the week again when we analyse the weekend’s action in the world of FPL, here is our Fantasy Premier League Team of the Week for Gameweek 11:

Goalkeeper: Aaron Ramsdale – Bournemouth – 9 points

Manchester United’s away woes returned at Bournemouth, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side struggled to find their way past a defence well marshalled by goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.

The shot-stopper made four saves to help his side keep a clean sheet in their 1-0 win at the Vitality Stadium, earning himself an additional two bonus points to making him the highest scoring goalkeeper of the round.

Defender: Kyle Walker – Manchester City – 14 points

Having failed to start any of Manchester City’s past three fixtures, Walker was restored to the champion’s starting line up for their clash with Southampton at the Etihad, proving an unlikely match-winner as Pep Guardiola’s side came from behind to secure a valuable win.

The 29-year-old first provided the assist for Sergio Aguero’s equaliser with a driven cross, before arriving at the back post to score a late winning goal. Walker’s contribution earned him an additional three bonus points, finishing with an impressive haul of 14 FPL points.

Defender: Caglar Soyuncu – Leicester – 14 points

The Turkish international has established himself as a cult hero at Leicester after stepping into the shoes of the departed Harry Maguire and performing admirably during the club’s flying start to the new season.

Leicester’s push for a top-four finish continued to gain momentum with another win at Crystal Palace on Sunday, Soyuncu heading home his first goal of the season to open the scoring at Selhurst Park.

A goal, clean sheet and an additional bonus point tallied up to his best FPL score of the season with 14 points, a yellow card the only blemish on an otherwise positive performance.

Defender: John Lundstram – Sheffield United – 21 points

The bargain defender continues to make a mockery of his modest £4.8m price-tag, with the midfielder’s classification as a defender in FPL making him a must have for fantasy managers.

The highest scoring defender in the game with 68 points, a huge 21 of those came from this weekend’s 3-0 victory over Burnley – Lundstram scoring twice to earn the highest score of the season so far.

The newly-promoted side have proved a solid outfit since returning to the top flight, currently sitting in the dizzying heights of sixth, with Lundstram offering value at both ends of the pitch.

Defender: Adam Smith – Bournemouth – 12 points

The second member of the Bournemouth backline to make our team, full-back Smith provided the assist for Josh King’s winner against Manchester United whilst playing his part in the club’s retention of a clean sheet.

The 28-year-old was rewarded with an additional three bonus points following the victory for Eddie Howe’s side, and has now scored an impressive 23 points in the past three gameweeks since returning to the starting XI.

Defender: Martin Montoya – Brighton – 12 points

A first double digit haul of the season for the Spanish full-back, who provided an assist and kept a clean sheet as Brighton beat struggling Norwich at the Amex Stadium to earn himself 12 FPL points.

The win lifted Brighton up to eighth in the Premier League table, as manager Graham Potter has made a quietly impressive start to life on the South Coast.

Midfield: John Fleck – Sheffield United – 9 points

One of a whole host of midfielders to earn nine FPL points this weekend, though we’ve opted to push budget option John Fleck into our three man midfield.

Fleck scored his first goal of the season during Sheffield United’s 3-0 win over Burnley, as Chris Wilder’s side remarkably moved into the European places.

Midfield: Sadio Mane – Liverpool – 12 points

The highest scoring midfielder in the game was also the highest scoring of Gameweek 11, providing an assist and scoring a stoppage-time winner as Liverpool came from behind to secure a late win at Aston Villa.

Mane has now scored a total of 76 points since the start of the season following his 12 point haul, and managers without the Senegalese star will have to move quickly with his price-tag having already risen to £12m ahead of Gameweek 12.

Midfield: Leandro Trossard – Brighton – 11 points

Having come off the bench to help turn the game in favour of Brighton last weekend against Everton, summer signing Trossard repeated the trick against Norwich once again this weekend.

The winger scored one and provided another after coming off the bench during the 2-0 win for Graham Potter’s side, earning an additional two bonus points for a tally of 11 as the Seagulls climbed to eighth in the Premier League.

Forward: Lys Mousset – Sheffield United – 13 points

The third Sheffield United player to make their way into our side, Lys Mousset notched a hat-trick of assists during his side’s comfortable victory over Burnley at Bramall Lane.

His 13 point haul was his highest of the season so far but maintained a strong run of FPL form, having scored twice and provided three assists over the past three gameweeks.

Forward: Tammy Abraham – Chelsea – 12 points

Chelsea’s young forward continues to look like a perfect fit for Frank Lampard’s inexperienced side, netting his ninth league goal of the season at Watford to move keep him firmly in the race for the Golden Boot.

The 22-year-old would later turn provider for Christian Pulisic’s goal, securing himself his fourth double digit haul of the FPL season.
