The Scout is tipping five players for big success in Gameweek 11 of 2023/24 Fantasy Premier League ahead of Saturday's 11:00 GMT deadline.

Bryan Mbeumo (Brentford) £6.6m

The Brentford star entertains West Ham United in his best form of the season.

Mbeumo has delivered back-to-back double-figure hauls against Burnley and Chelsea in the last two Gameweeks, earning 27 points thanks to two goals and two assists.

His totals of nine big chances and 13 shots on target are both team-leading totals for the Bees in 2023/24.

West Ham, meanwhile, have struggled defensively on their travels this season. They have conceded 10 goals in five away matches and are without a clean sheet in those encounters.

Joachim Andersen (Crystal Palace) £5.0m

The centre-back offers multiple routes to returns over Crystal Palace’s kind upcoming schedule.

Andersen sits just five points off the top of the defender standings on 54 points, combining two goals and an assist with four clean sheets and nine bonus points.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), four of the Eagles’ next five matches – including their visit to promoted Burnley this weekend – score just two.

That makes Andersen one of the top replacements for managers looking to swap out Kieran Trippier (£7.0m) for Newcastle United’s tough run of fixtures against Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United over the next four Gameweeks. 

Phil Foden (Man City) £7.5m

A home meeting with AFC Bournemouth looks encouraging for the Manchester City midfielder.

Foden has started all four of his side’s matches at the Etihad Stadium in 2023/24, blanking on only one occasion. He has averaged 6.8 points per match in those encounters, scoring once and supplying two assists.

Foden has been the defending champions’ top creator this season, supplying 23 chances.

His visitors, meanwhile, have been poor at the back of late. Bournemouth have allowed 48 shots in the box and 15 big chances in their last four matches, both more than any other side.

Evan Ferguson (Brighton) £6.0m

The Brighton & Hove Albion forward faces a trip to Everton on the back of his fifth goal of the season last weekend.

Ferguson has had his pitch time managed up until this point, but he now looks set for a run of starts following an injury to team-mate Danny Welbeck (£5.8m).

The underlying numbers suggest that can help lift the young Irishman’s output further.

Ferguson has averaged a goal every 107.8 minutes, placing him fourth among forwards with more than three goals in 2023/24.

Ferguson's goal v Fulham

Brighton’s upcoming schedule also indicates their striker can offer strong value in Fantasy, with each of their next three matches scoring only two in the FDR.

Hwang Hee-chan (Wolves) £5.5m

Wolverhampton Wanderers’ South Korean is enjoying the most productive season of his Fantasy career.

Hwang, classified as a midfielder in FPL, has scored six goals and supplied an assist in his first 10 outings for new head coach Gary O’Neil, surpassing his previous best of six goal involvements in 2021/22 Fantasy.

He visits Sheffield United in outstanding form, with only a single blank and 42 points in his last seven appearances.

The Blades have struggled defensively since their promotion, conceding at least two goals in nine of their 10 matches.

Their underlying numbers suggest Hwang has every chance of continuing his excellent form this Saturday.

At home, Sheff Utd have allowed the most shots, shots in the box, big chances and shots on target.
