FPL Dream Team: Chelsea dominate in Gameweek 11

The in-form Blues provide a quartet to the Dream Team squad to spark a flurry of FPL transfer activity

Antonio Conte's squad supply four players to the Gameweek 11 Dream Team, as Fantasy Premier League managers scramble to seize upon Chelsea's dominant form following the 5-0 victory over Everton.

Both Thibaut Courtois (£5.5m), the goalkeeper, and defender Marcos Alonso (£6.0m) make their Dream Team debuts on the back of a fifth successive clean sheet. Incredibly, Chelsea were the only side to register a shutout in Gameweek 11.

Fielded as a left wing-back in a 3-4-3, Alonso was the top-scoring backline option, with a goal, clean sheet and single bonus point earning him a 13-point haul.

Owned by just 2% of FPL managers, that figure is rising rapidly with Alonso attracting more than 51,000 new FPL owners since Saturday's deadline.

Elsewhere in Conte's squad, Eden Hazard (£10.1m) and Pedro (£7.2m) were the top scoring players in Gameweek 11, with 19 and 16 points respectively.

Brought into more than 180,000 squads ahead of Gameweek 12, Hazard is now the overall points leader in FPL thanks to a run of four goals and two assists in his last four outings.

A revitalised Pedro produced a goal and two assists against the Toffees to cement his place on the Chelsea teamsheet. He has started each of the last four top-flight matches ahead of Willian (£7.2m), delivering 38 points over that spell.

Cut-price defenders Michael Dawson (£4.4m) and Mike Van der Hoorn (£4.3m) were afforded their maiden Dream Team appearance after popping up with set-piece headers.

Centre-half Dawson has started each of the last three Gameweeks since recovering from injury. He grabbed a goal and two bonus points in Hull City's 2-1 home win over Southampton, earning a 10-point return.

Van der Hoorn – who has been reinstalled to the Swansea City back four by new manager Bob Bradley – claimed a late consolation in a 3-1 home defeat by Manchester United.

Budget midfield duo Robert Snodgrass (£5.5m) of Hull and Johan Berg Gudmundsson (£5.1m) of Burnley also made their Dream Team debuts.

Both provided a goal and assist apiece and, ahead of some very favourable fixtures, could now rival popular picks such as Joe Allen (£5.4m) and Ilkay Gundogan (£5.8m) in their price bracket.

Liverpool's Roberto Firmino (£8.7m) completes our five-man midfield.

Appearing in the Dream Team for the third time this season, the Brazilian moved into fourth place in the midfield standings after producing a goal and two assists in a 6-1 win over Watford.

Identically priced and just eight points behind compatriot Philippe Coutinho (£8.7m), Firmino is found in just 14.2% of squads compared with Coutinho's 46.2% ownership. 

Zlatan Ibrahimovic (£11.1m) and Jermain Defoe (£7.3m) lead the attack in a 3-5-2 formation, with both making their third Dream Team outing of 2016/17.

Ibrahimovic earns a recall after ending a six-match scoring drought with a brace in the victory over Swansea.

But the Man Utd forward also collected a fifth yellow card of the campaign and will miss the Gameweek 12 Old Trafford meeting with Arsenal due to suspension.

Defoe produced a goal and an assist away to former club AFC Bournemouth as Sunderland registered their first win of the season.

The Black Cats' frontman is now level on points with Manchester City's Sergio Aguero (£13.1m), yet is owned by just 14.2% of FPL managers ahead of a vital home meeting with Hull.
