GW11 FPL stats: Haaland disappoints millions

Man City striker blanks for first time while Phil Foden also frustrates as most-bought player in GW11

It had to happen at some point and Gameweek 11 was when it finally did; Fantasy Premier League managers were left disappointed as Erling Haaland (£12.2m) blanked.

The Manchester City forward had been given the armband by over 6,731,000 managers after returning in all nine Gameweeks in which he had played.

But Haaland failed to haul for the first time as the champions were beaten 1-0 by Liverpool.

Haaland 6,731 2
Jesus 924 2
Kane 641 9

It was a similar story for the second-most captained player, Gabriel Jesus (£8.0m), who blanked in Arsenal's 1-0 win at Leeds United.

Harry Kane (£11.4m) completed the top three armband picks and it was his backers who stole a march in their mini-leagues after the forward scored a penalty in Tottenham Hotspur's 2-0 win over Everton.

He has now produced an attacking return in each of his last nine matches and in 15 appearances against the Toffees, Kane has returned 112 points and bagged six double-figure hauls, racking up 14 goals, two assists and 20 bonus.

Foden frustration

Managers were also left frustrated after bringing in Phil Foden (£8.3m) in their droves.

More than 635,000 snapped up the Man City midfielder (£8.2m) ahead of Gameweek 11.

Back-to-back double-figure hauls had taken Foden to the top of Fantasy midfielder standings on 62 points. Indeed, over the last month no player, including Haaland, had bettered his total of 38 points.

Yet Foden blanked in the Anfield defeat, his fate compounded by his having a goal ruled out for a foul by Haaland in the build-up.

Foden owners must now make do without his services in GW12 as Manchester City have a Blank Gameweek.

Foden 635 2
Trossard 521 2
Trippier 465 6

Brighton's Leandro Trossard (£6.8m) was the second most-bought player as over 521,000 turned to the Belgian.

Trossard couldn't repay that faith as he blanked for the second successive Gameweek in the Seagulls' 2-0 defeat at Brentford.

However, he has an excellent chance to make amends as Robert De Zerbi's team host Nottingham Forest in Gameweek 12. Forest are yet to keep a clean sheet on the road and have conceded 13 goals in those four away trips.

Kieran Trippier (£5.7m) continues to be bought by thousands, and his new owners immediately benefited from a clean sheet and six points, following Newcastle United's goalless draw at Man Utd.

He has been the most transferred-in defender in each of the last six Gameweeks, being recruited by more than 3.6million managers over that period. 

His ownership has risen to 55.6 per cent, putting him ahead of Joao Cancelo (£7.3m) by half a percentage point to make him the most-selected defender in Fantasy.

GW11 most transferred-out players
Player Transferred out by ('000s) Pts
Luis Diaz 1,100 0
Alexander-Arnold 942 1
James 927 0

Two of the three-most sold players missed Gameweek 11 through injury.

Luis Diaz (£8.0m) will not feature for Liverpool until after the FIFA World Cup, while Reece James (£6.0m) has been ruled out for eight weeks after suffering a knee injury.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.2m) was expected to miss out this Gameweek with an ankle problem but made a surprise return to the Liverpool squad against Man City.

He came on as a late substitute and played for a minute to return a point.
