Captains

Vote in the Captain Poll for Gameweek 11

Sergio Aguero (£11.3m) and Eden Hazard (£11.3m) are likely to be the pair vying for domination of the Gameweek 11 captaincy.

Both players have home fixtures against favourable opposition this weekend and have been much more impressive in front of their own fans this season.

Aguero has delivered attacking returns in every match at the Etihad Stadium in 2018/19, averaging a total of 9.4 points per game.

Meanwhile, Southampton will arrive having conceded 1.4 goals per away match this season. Only three teams have allowed more penalty box shots since Gameweek 7 too.

Benjamin Mendy (£6.3m) may even get a look-in this week given that he has six assists already this term and Southampton are without a league goal in five matches.

With Riyad Mahrez (£8.6) having recorded three double-figure hauls in the last five Gameweeks, he may be starting to emerge as a differential option although there are plenty of potentially viable options in the Man City midfield.

As Liverpool travel to in-form Arsenal, interest in Mohamed Salah (£12.9m) and Sadio Mané (£9.7m) may be restricted.

Instead, Hazard looks like the most likely to compete with Aguero if he can regain full fitness.

The Chelsea man has registered either a goal or an assist in all but one of his home matches this season, for an average of 9.2 points per game at Stamford Bridge. The only one he blanked in was the Gameweek 9 visit of Manchester United.

Next opponents Crystal Palace are without a clean sheet since Gameweek 6 and have conceded seven times in four matches since then (1.75 per game).

Given Brighton’s form away from home, some managers may consider either Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.4m) or Richarlison (£6.8m) as alternative captain candidates in Gameweek 11.

West Ham’s Marko Arnautovic (£7.0m) may also be viewed by some as a differential as he prepares to face Burnley. No side has allowed more shots than the Clarets this season.

Fulham and their hapless defence are unlikely to influence the captaincy discussion as they travel to face Huddersfield Town, the Premier League’s lowest scorers.

    Flipped AWB (whom I've had all season) for Balbuena. For some reason, I feel shame.

    Which transfer(s) should I make this week? The other(s) will be made the following week.

    A) Hennessey > Fabianski

    B) Mitro, Bennett > 4.5, Mendy (start Fraser)

    1. Original Pirate Material

      A

  3. Steinim

    Which is more important for GW11? (The other probably signed the week after)
    A. Mendy
    B. Arnie

      To add to this: Current team is sitting just outside top 1K with:

      Ederson - Hamer
      Robbo - Alonso - Trippier - Doherty - AVB
      Salah - Hazard - Fraser - Jorginho - Neves
      Aguero - Wilson - Mitro

      Plan A is: Trippier -> Mendy and Neves -> 4,4 midfielder
      Plan B is: Mitro -> Arnie and Neves -> 4,4 midfielder
      Then plan C could be: Trippier -> Mendy and Mitro -> Success with the idea of Neves -> Pereyra, Maddison, Richarlison or Barkley in GW 11.

      A, B or C?

    Don’t get people wanting to move Doherty on, looks like producing attacking returns nearly every game.

      Two tough fixtures coming n up, + disappointemnt in his last two games. But I agree, they should just stick him in the bench for the nex couple of GWs

    Maddison Richarlison, Haz, ( Fraser, Cairney)

    C) Any other suggestions
    D) Hold

    I'm £0.1 short of Mitrovic to Arnautovic. Nie would you fund that move?

    2 FT / £0.1 ITB

    Patricio Hamer
    Alonso Mendy TAA Doherty AWB
    Salah Hazard Maddison Richarlison Fraser
    Aguero Mitrovic Jimenez

    Thanks!

        I am in similar situation with almost the same squad (5 different players) and 0.1 short for direct swap
        I consider Fraser - Barkley before his price increase that night and Arnautovic replace Mitrovic 🙂 Just a thought 🙂

      Alonso Doherty Mendy
      Dilva Salah Rich Madisson
      Aguero Mitro Ings

      Begovic, TAA, Fraser, AWB

      1.0 ITB 2 FT

      Any thoughts on transfers?
      Thinking about Ings, Dilva → KdB, Success?

      And then Mitro → Arnie next week

      Planning a WC after gw15

      1. Differential (c)

        Looks like a solid plan.

    3. Fred the Red
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 27 days ago

      A) Sterling to Hazard
      B) Mitro to Arnie

      1. Riggs
          5 months, 27 days ago

          B) Hazard will be fit for the next GW.
          Mitrovic despite having Huddersfield is unconvincing, and after that doesn't have good run of fixtures in the next couple of weeks. No dilemma for me in your case

          Clueless as to my next move.

          Ederson
          Alonso - Mendy - Trippier
          Hazard (C) - Maddison - Sigurdsson - Fraser - Pereyra
          Murray - Aguero (VC)
          Ryan | Robertson - Steve Cook - Ings

          Might flip the captaincies

          1FT nothing itb

          Originally looked to ship Trippier to net some money, not sure for whom, but depending on the options maybe thinking holding the transfer is just as good
