FPL Saturday review: Sterling leads double-digit differentials

Man City’s overlooked winger produces goal and assist to claim season-high haul

A mere 4.1 per cent of Fantasy Premier League managers benefited from Raheem Sterling's (£11.4m) highest haul of the season on Saturday.

Interest in the winger had dropped after he was benched for Manchester City's previous two matches, against Tottenham Hotspur and Burnley.

But his return to the starting line-up against Fulham proved decisive.

Sterling scored the opener and also earned the assist for Kevin De Bruyne’s (£11.7m) converted penalty.

It gave Sterling 13 points from the 2-0 win, his first double-digit return since Gameweek 5.

De Bruyne, meanwhile, recorded his second successive double-figure haul, returning 14 points for his 23.4 per cent ownership.

The Man City pair were among only four players to produce 10+ points over Saturday’s four matches.

Relief for Fernandes owners

Paul Pogba (£7.7m) of Manchester United and Burnley's Robbie Brady (£5.0m) both scored their first goals of the season, earning 10 points apiece.

Like Sterling, they were too overlooked by FPL managers heading into Gameweek 11, owned by only 1.1 per cent and 0.0 per cent respectively.

Owners of Pogba's team-mate Bruno Fernandes (£10.9m) were relieved after he came off the bench to claim six points in the 3-1 win at West Ham United.

Fernandes supplied the assist for Pogba's strike and also earned two bonus points, despite only playing 45 minutes.

Those additional points were a result of his underlying numbers in the second-half comeback win.

He created eight chances, including two big chances, lifting his total in the Bonus Points System (BPS).

Most valuable players

Kurt Zouma (£5.6m) and Patrick Bamford (£6.1m) continued their exceptional seasons as Chelsea beat Leeds United 3-1.

Chelsea centre-back Zouma scored his fourth goal of 2020/21 to extend his lead at the top of the FPL defender standings to nine points.

Bamford struck the opener for the visitors at Stamford Bridge, taking his tally to eight goals and two assists in the opening 11 Gameweeks.

In terms of value, Zouma and Bamford are the top two players in FPL, returning 12.0 and 11.5 points per million respectively.
