GW11 Selection: Alonso to punish Palace

The Scout 2 Nov 2018

The Scout backs Chelsea defender for another bumper haul as Sergio Aguero gets Gameweek 11 armband

Marcos Alonso (£7.0m) retains his place in The Scout’s best XI for Gameweek 11 of Fantasy Premier League.

The Chelsea left-back was one of four players from the Gameweek 10 Scout Selection to register double-figure returns, along with captain Mohamed Salah (£13.0m), Sadio Mane (£9.8m) and Ryan Fraser (£6.1m).

Alonso claimed 11 points in a 4-0 win at Burnley and now has six assists and five clean sheets for the season.

He takes his place in a 3-5-2 formation as Sergio Aguero (£11.3m) is handed the captaincy.

The Scout's Gameweek 11 XI
Lukasz Fabianski (WHU) £4.5m

No goalkeeper has produced more than his 44 saves this season. Fabianski is in fine Fantasy form ahead of Burnley's visit, having earned 25 points in the last five Gameweeks.

Marcos Alonso (CHE) £7.0m

The defender with the most FPL points in 2018/19, Alonso offers multiple routes to points this weekend. The Spaniard’s 18 shots on goal are joint-top for defenders, while his opponents, Crystal Palace, have failed to score in four of the last seven Gameweeks.

Benjamin Mendy (MCI) £6.4m

The Manchester City left-back has six assists and four clean sheets in seven league appearances this season. Mendy has averaged 7.6 points a match, more than any team-mate, and looks set for another big performance at home to Southampton.

Kiko Femenia (WAT) £4.2m

The Watford full-back has claimed 18 points in the last two Gameweeks, thanks to two clean sheets and an assist. Femenia travels to Newcastle United, who have failed to score in four of their last five matches.

Gerard Deulofeu (WAT) £5.4m

The Spaniard has impressed in a central role since returning from injury in Gameweek 9. Deulofeu scored against Huddersfield Town last weekend and looks set to trouble Newcastle’s defence at St James’ Park.

James Maddison (LEI) £7.0m

The Leicester City midfielder's 13 chances created away from home rank him third overall and his set-pieces and creativity will be a major factor at Cardiff City, whose 23 goals conceded is the second-worst record in the Premier League. 

Raheem Sterling (MCI) £11.1m

The winger has scored in all three of his home matches for Man City this season, averaging 10.7 points at the Etihad Stadium. Sterling can extend his goal streak against a Southampton side who have conceded two or more goals on six occasions. He is the Gameweek 11 vice-captain.

Gylfi Sigurdsson (EVE) £7.4m

Everton’s playmaker has five goals and 44 points in the last six Gameweeks. Sigurdsson has set-pieces and penalty duties to raise his potential further for a home encounter against Brighton & Hove Albion.

Eden Hazard (CHE) £11.3m

Outstanding at home this season, the Chelsea winger has 46 points in five appearances.  Although head coach Maurizio Sarri is uncertain whether the fit-again Belgian will play the full 90 minutes, his output at Stamford Bridge suggests he can still deliver a big haul against Palace. 

Marko Arnautovic (WHU) £7.0m

His total of six shots on target over the last four Gameweeks is ranked joint-top among FPL forwards. Arnautovic’s opponents Burnley travel to London having faced 208 shots, more than any other side.

Sergio Aguero (MCI) £11.3m

A hugely consistent source of points in home matches, Aguero has recorded a goal or an assist in all five appearances at the Etihad Stadium. That earns him the captaincy for Sunday’s visit by Southampton.

What the experts say

Neal Thurman (@neiljthurman): I'm not sure why Kieran Trippier (£6.3m) is not in this team. His opponents, Wolverhampton Wanderers, have struggled to find the net. Femenia has had a nice two-match run but has no history of sustained success.

Ash (@FPLHints): Femenia has been flying under the radar of late. At £4.2m he is a budget gem. That said, I'm not sure about Deulofeu. He's been inconsistent and there's no guarantee he'll get a full 90 minutes even this weekend.

Paul Gee (@fplPaulGee): I wish I had this team! Love the Deulofeu pick. He's just starting to come into some great form. It is, however, risky to avoid the Liverpool attack. I don't think it matters who they play, they are going to score goals and Sadio Mane (£9.8m) and Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) are likely to be involved.

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily): I like the defence choices this week. Fabianski has great fixtures moving forward and is tied with Joe Hart (£4.6m) for most saves made. Alonso, Femenia and Mendy look set for clean sheets and, potentially, attacking returns.

Lee Bonfield (@FPLFamily): Arnautovic needs to repay the faith I’ve shown him these last few Gameweeks. With Burnley conceding the most shots in the league, I’m glad to see him selected. I also like the Deulofeu pick. There’s a lot of hype about Isaac Success (£4.5m) for Watford this week, but I’d back the Spaniard to be their main man now he is back from injury.

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity): The choices from Chelsea and City are great. They should both win their matches and keep a clean sheet. I wouldn’t discount Liverpool players, who could be among the goals in their trip to Arsenal. I’m backing Salah to deliver this weekend.
