A visit to West Ham United makes Bruno Fernandes (£10.9m) a prime contender for the captaincy in Gameweek 11 of Fantasy Premier League.

The Manchester United playmaker has a fantastic record on the road this season, producing double-figure hauls in all four of his away matches.

Fernandes has scored five goals and supplied four assists in those fixtures, averaging 12.5 points per match (ppm).

Fernandes' GW10 goal and assist

Manchester City pair Kevin De Bruyne (£11.7m) and Riyad Mahrez (£8.3m) are also among the top armband options. 

Both were rested from UEFA Champions League duties in midweek ahead of a home encounter with Fulham.

De Bruyne returned 10 points against Burnley at the Etihad Stadium last weekend.

His 11 chances created over the last four Gameweeks rank joint-top among all players in FPL, while his 16 shots is the third-highest total.

Mahrez, meanwhile, scored a hat-trick in the 5-0 win over Burnley in Gameweek 10.

The Algerian has averaged 12ppm across his three home matches this term.

Strong fixture for Werner

Chelsea’s home encounter with Leeds United hands Timo Werner (£9.5m) the chance to continue his fine form.

The German has amassed 25 points in his last three matches at Stamford Bridge, scoring three goals and supplying an assist.

Leeds have struggled in defence on their travels this season.

Away from home, they have conceded 50 shots in the box and 13 big chances. Both of those totals rank among the bottom two sides.

More away joy for Vardy?

The away form of Jamie Vardy (£10.3m) makes him an enticing option at Sheffield United.

Seven of the Leicester City striker’s eight goals this season and two of his three assists have come on the road.

His hosts, meanwhile, are the only side yet to keep a clean sheet in 2020/21.
