FPL Gameweek 11 Differentials

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 11 of 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League.

Allan Saint-Maximin (NEW) £6.3m

The winger’s return to fitness as a substitute in Newcastle United’s 5-1 win over Brentford last weekend is good news for Fantasy managers.

Saint-Maximin was a standout performer for the Magpies in the opening four Gameweeks before being sidelined.

He supplied three FPL assists in the 3-3 draw with Manchester City and scored in the 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers to earn 27 points in that period.

That total was more than any other Newcastle player and it placed the Frenchman joint-fourth among midfielders in Fantasy.

The underlying numbers also highlight the all-round influence of Saint-Maximin on Newcastle’s attack.

His 12 shots and five shots on target both ranked top in the first four Gameweeks, while his seven chances created were bettered only by the nine of Joelinton (£6.0m).

Newcastle’s upcoming schedule allows Saint-Maximin the chance to get more goals and assists before the season pauses for the FIFA World Cup after Gameweek 16.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), three of their next five matches, against Everton, Aston Villa and Southampton, score only two.

Newcastle's next five fixtures
11 MUN (A) 4
12 EVE (H) 2
13 TOT (A) 4
14 AVL (H) 2
15 SOU (H) 2

Notably, Saint-Maximin has a fine recent record against his Gameweek 11 hosts Manchester United.

He has produced returns in each of their last three meetings, claiming 21 points thanks to two goals and an assist.

Starting with his visit to Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon, Saint-Maximin has the fixtures to make a major impact in Fantasy once again.

GW11 deadline: 18:30 BST, Fri 14 Oct
