FPL Gameweek 11 round-up: Saturday review, injury news and the things we learned

There were mixed fortunes for Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers on Saturday, with Burnley, Norwich City and Newcastle United proving to be Gameweek 11 party-poopers but Manchester City and Crystal Palace delivering the goods with wins to nil.

Our usual, more detailed Scout Notes will follow for all of the day’s games but in the meantime, our resurrected Scoreboard series rounds up the key goings-on from the day’s Gameweek 11 fixtures.

FPL Gameweek 11 round-up: Saturday review, injury news and the things we learned 7

INJURIES AND BANS

How Spurs' FPL assets fared in their final match before Double Gameweek 32 3

Robert Sanchez (£4.6m) will be suspended in Gameweek 12 after being sent off for the denial of a goalscoring opportunity in Brighton’s draw with Newcastle. Jason Steele (£4.0m) will presumably step up to replace the Spaniard against Aston Villa, although didn’t get to take to the pitch at the Amex as Albion had used all three substitutes by the time of Sanchez’s dismissal.

There wasn’t a great deal to report on the injury front from Saturday’s matches.

Luke Shaw (£5.2m) was substituted with a head injury in the Manchester derby but the concussion protocol will be served long before the international break comes to a close in a fortnight’s time.

Edinson Cavani (£8.4m) missed United’s defeat to City with a tendon problem but Kyle Walker (£5.6m) and Victor Lindelof (£4.8m) shook off minor issues to feature.

Mason Mount (£7.5m) was only a late substitute in Chelsea’s draw with Burnley, meanwhile, as he continues to struggle with dental problems and an infection.

Already without the sidelined Kristoffer Ajer (£4.5m), Brentford lost another centre-half to injury on Saturday in the form of Zanka (£4.5m). The playing budget defender klaxon was sounded with the introduction of Charlie Goode (£3.9m), although the Bees’ current defensive woes does make investment in their backline less appealing than it did earlier in the campaign.

GAMEWEEK 11 TAKEAWAYS

LAMPTEY RETURNS

Isaac Hayden‘s (£4.5m) second-half strike ensured that Brighton’s clean sheet went up in smoke in a flat display against bottom-of-the-table Newcastle but there was a positive to take with the first Premier League start of the season for Tariq Lamptey (£4.4m).

Deployed “out of position” on the right flank for the hosts, the former Chelsea defender was a bright spark and got into some threatening positions, narrowly failing to divert a cross home before the break before racing onto a Sanchez punt to produce a tame shot from inside the visitors’ area.

Any FPL managers who have missed the Valentino Livramento (£4.5m) bus may want to keep an eye on the cut-price Lamptey given his similarly attacking mindset. Having said that, his injury history coupled with the congested Christmas schedule may well see Graham Potter use him sensibly and sparingly over the coming two months.

A GOOD TIME TO PLAY BRENTFORD?

Newcastle will likely be under the stewardship of Eddie Howe by the time Gameweek 12 comes around, as the former Bournemouth man was in the director’s box at the Amex for the evening kick-off.

Howe will have a decent first four matches to look forward to, three of which are at home.

The Magpies will also be encountering a Brentford side without a clean sheet in six matches and who have conceded five goals to the might of Burnley and Norwich in the last two Gameweeks alone.

David Raya‘s (£4.5m) absence is one mitigating factor; the suggestion that the defence in front of him are missing the Spaniard’s communication skills is one theory but whatever the reason, their concession of six big chances to two likely relegation rivals in Gameweeks 9 and 10 is a joint-high and encouragement for the likes of Callum Wilson (£7.3m).

As for Ivan Toney (£6.7m) and Bryan Mbeumo (£5.6m), the ‘all fart and no poo’ strike pair managed to conjure up another couple of blanks despite facing the division’s worst defence for goals conceded. The two combined for an offside goal in the second half but, other than an early chance for Toney, didn’t really trouble the opposition goal.

The fixtures – and those cursed, tempting underlying stats – remain decent over the next five Gameweeks but another blank against a Newcastle side who haven’t kept a clean sheet in 2021/22 will see many of us getting itchy fingers.

FARKE OFF

Despite registering their first win of the campaign, Norwich City parted ways with Daniel Farke on Saturday night.

Whoever takes charge of the Canaries will have three half-decent fixtures to look forward to upon their appointment but there’ll be understandable trepidation about Delia’s basement-dwellers, even allowing for the victory over Brentford and the fabled new manager bounce.

NO CLEAN SHEET? NO PROBLEM FOR JAMES

Despite picking up a booking and losing his clean sheet, an assist for Reece James (£5.9m) helped him collect another maximum bonus haul to take him up to 10 bonus points for the season – that’s more than any other FPL defender has managed.

Burnley’s late, out-of-the-blue equaliser was a sickener for FPL managers with Chelsea defenders in their teams but there was plenty of encouragement of owners of James and Ben Chilwell (£6.0m) in particular: the pair racked up a combined 95 final-third touches, 15 penalty box touches, six chances created and five shots in a typically gung-ho attacking display.

PALACE CONTINUE TO IMPRESS

While Mbeumo and Toney continue to flatter to deceive, an in-form Crystal Palace – who also enjoy some very decent fixtures between now and Gameweek 20 – have two FPL assets of their own in similar price rungs who are actually delivering the goods.

Conor Gallagher (£5.7m) moved up to second in the midfielders’ points table with his goal in Saturday’s win over Wolves, while Wilfried Zaha (£6.8m) made it five attacking returns in his last six starts with a strike of his own.

And defensively, despite their tough start, they remain the second-best team in the division for expected goals conceded (xGC) in 2021/22, restricting a hitherto buzzing Wolves side to just four shots on Saturday.

CANCELO CULTURE

Joao Cancelo (£6.4m) is the highest-scoring player of Gameweek 11 so far and now the top-scoring defender of 2021/22, supplementing his clean sheet in the Manchester derby with two assists and maximum bonus points. Rather frighteningly for those of us who don’t own him, he’s arguably capable of even more: he’s yet to score in the league this season but has registered more shots (26) than any other FPL defender this season, adding another four attempts at Old Trafford.

    Toying with possibly wildcarding this gw. Thoughts on first draft..

    Sanchez Steele
    TAA Cancelo James Rudiger Livramento
    Salah Foden Zaha Trossard Son
    Antonio Hwang Broja

    Be playing a 451 formation, which I never go with usually but I'm not impressed by many of the striker options. Also I could change keepers, they're just what I got atm

    1. Tommy Tynans Left Shin Pad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Massive benching headache evey week. Not a fan of 451 either.

    2. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 17 days ago

      I like it but 100% try get Chilwell over Rudiger.
      Especially with that bench depth I think go for the full backs.

      1. Wolfman180
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        I'm 0.1 off annoyingly 🙁

    3. Little Red Lacazette
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Looks good but as you say needs a keeper change.I am on WC too and have Kane and Son atm.

      1. RogDog_jimmy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Then I’d bin Broja to a 4.5. Third bench almost is never used. And he may not start when you do need him.

    4. Riders of Yohan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      I WC last week but went for son and Kane. Up to you but think the double up will lead to green arrows

    5. Dammit_182
        2 months, 17 days ago

        I’m jealous of you being on WC. Not much change in prices tonight so you can hold off till tomorrow. I made a mistake in taking out cancello instead of rudiger for James this week snd it will cost me 0.2m and a -4 to correct. So like others have said James instead of rudi.

        Like the za-ha and trossard differentials but up top looks poor (as it is for most of us).

        See how spurs get on tomorrow and if son is worth getting on I guess,

        1. Wolfman180
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          I think the options up front are poor in general which is why I'm thinking of going 451. I just wish I had the 0.1 to go with both James and Chilwell. Might have to go for either someone cheaper than Trossard or downgrade Broja to a purely bench fodder player

          1. Dammit_182
              2 months, 17 days ago

              I’m all for getting keinan Davis at 4.4 in. The up top options will improve at some point.

            • We Go Again
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              Downgrade Broja. Livra and Hwang is more than enough bench cover

              1. Wolfman180
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 7 Years
                2 months, 17 days ago

                Thinking about it, if I pull the WC trigger now I could try gain 0.1 in price rises

        Who's your sub keeper?

        Will Steele start for Brighton?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Believe so, he’s in their bench each week

          Only one way to find out
          Keep in mind though, he is not very good

          1. NateDog
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 17 days ago

            Everyone's always complaining about Sanchez not making saves and before the RC he flapped wildly at a cross that he didn't need to go near, can't imagine Steele is much worse

              • 4 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              He is there because he is a good communicator and very adept with his feet, suits Potters ball playing style. As a goalie he is not the most technically good, a bit rugged and a bit clumsy. Calm and a big frame which help when you defend set pieces.

      • RogDog_jimmy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Early days but…

        Ramsdale
        Cancelo, Azpi, Chilwell, Livramento
        Salah, Jota, Havertz, Raphinha
        Antonio, Jimenez
        (Foster, Vardy, Duffy, Brownhill)

        2ft, 1.4itb

        Havertz + Raph > Son + Gallagher is exact money now. Considering doing Havertz > Gallagher to beat tonight’s changes and then waiting on the next move.

        Could be Azpi > TAA, Raph > Son, Vardy > Ron/Kane

        Do we think Havertz > Gallagher is a safe early move to beat prices?

        2ft.

        1. Riders of Yohan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Like that tbh, as long as you’re okay to accept other potential injuries

          1. RogDog_jimmy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 17 days ago

            Yeah - and if it’s all good maybe I roll again!
            It’s nice having spare transfers to chase prices a little.

        2. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Nope would probably do Ralph to Gallagher instead.

          1. RogDog_jimmy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 17 days ago

            Interesting.

            I guess since Raph is nailed that in case I don’t do the second move I’d rather him than Havertz post-IB.

            Either way I have enough cash for several other big changes.

        3. Crunchie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          yes i have owned Gallagher for a long time, but not is hauls, until this week. He and Guiata for those on a WC are the first on the FPL shortlist too

          1. Crunchie
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 17 days ago

            31 bench last week and 21 this but didn't expect anything fron him. Dias was the mistake more than Livra on the bench, wasn't going to drop Toney but Jiminez instead as i felt Wolves wouldnt score today, and may not play GW12, but has nice fixtures after that.

      • Slitherene
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        On a WC : Cancelo, Vardy or Walker, Kane?

        1. Jimbo-Jones
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Cancelo & Son

      • sandman58
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        How did Jimenez & Mbeumo play today guys?
        Never seen any games

        1. Riders of Yohan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Mbeumo had a goal rules out. Wolves didn’t seem to create that much

        2. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Yeah watched our game. Jimenez was very quiet

      • have you seen cyan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Any suggestions on what to do with this? 2 FT, 0 ITB

        Ramsdale - (Foster)
        TAA - Cancelo - Chilwell - Livramento - (Williams)
        Salah - Saka - Raph - (Mount - Doucoure)
        Vardy - Auba - Hwang

        I think Doucoure has a broken foot or something, but his flag changed to amber and hes now 50% chance of playing (apparently). Players I would like: Kane, Son, Jota, Gallagher, Reg

        1. krawiecus
            2 months, 17 days ago

            Mount, Vardy, Aubameyang to Jota, Kane, any attacker within the budget?

            1. have you seen cyan

              2 months, 17 days ago

              its pretty good and leaves enuf to get reg, shame losing vardy tho

          • 11 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          What's happened to Brentford? Time to ship their assets out? Brought them in for this run but they're just not at the races

          1. The Units
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 17 days ago

            Glad I didn't bring them in now as had other fires at the time.

          2. Riders of Yohan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 17 days ago

            They actually had more chances today than Norwich, their expected goals was higher too. I wouldn’t before newcastle

              2 months, 17 days ago

              Fair comment, cheers. Didn't look up to much on the highlights but I guess I should give them Newcastle at least yeah

          3. I Member
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 17 days ago

            Would give them the Newcastle game and reassess.

            1. Dammit_182

                This

            2. NateDog
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 17 days ago

              I've had Toney a few weeks and he hasn't returned in any, but I said I'd hold until after Newcastle and then move so I'll stuck with that

          4. The Units
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 17 days ago

            Will Jota & Foden (1.2m itb) score more than Son & Raph (max 6.6m mid) over the next 4 GWs?

            Rest of mid's - Salah, ESR & Gallagher.

            1. Pep's Money Laundry
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              Probably not too much in it

            2. Crunchie
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              Raph scored against a poor Norwich side, but Leeds are poor. I would say the former but t is son that will haul not Raph IMO

          5. Dynamic Duos

              I'd be tempted to WC that tbh.

              I might pull the trigger, now is as good a time to WC as any, but if you are holding for a reason, your moves look decent enough.

                  I would wait for a manager transfer first :). Theyw way they are playing alot of teams will beat Man Utd atm, not just Liverpool and Man City . It just shows how poor Nuno was for Spurs.

                  A teenager could tell that playing 5-3-2 against City wouldn't work. Man City just keep the ball.

            Guess this will change depending on how he does tomorrow but how are Raphinha owners feeling? Happy to keep or looking to move on?

            I'm thinking he can be benched for Livramento next GW and has okay fixtures after that.

              He's a possible out over IB for me depending on what I decide to do, but at the minute haven't a clue

                Gallagher looks like an easy replacement but not sure if that's better than rolling a transfer.

                  Maybe. I have 2 FTs (with Vardy being a candidate for the chopping block) so might do something exciting if I can think of anything. Probably get Jota (maybe for Raph) if Bobby out for a while.

                    I also have two FTs with Havertz to Son pencilled in as one of them. I already own Jota so for me it's keep Raph or get Gallagher.

                    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
                      • 4 Years
                      2 months, 17 days ago

                      Keep and save the other then. Bammo back soonish isn't he?

                        That's what I'm thinking.

                      My exact plan is Havertz + Raph > Son + Gallagher (2ft). Issue is i have exact money - so likely to do Havertz > Gallagher tonight before rises.

                      Just going through stats to make sure that’s what I want.

                        I like those moves. I have plenty cash in the bank so no need for me to rush.

              My plan at the minute is to move on after this week, he's been great but he's holding up a frail team right now. Once fixtures improve a bit and Bamford is back along with others like Ayling and Koch I'll get him back. But prefer a punt on Cornet for now

                Fair enough. Brighton, Palace and Brentford look like games he could do okay in though.

                  I think he's capable of hauling in any game honestly, the problem is that his ceiling is quite low and it's even lower with everyone around him in poor form and no good finisher there currently (I watched the game against Norwich last week and couldn't believe how awful Harrison looks considering how good he was last season), I feel like the most he might get is 7/8 in most games (gives the ball away and fouls a bit so doesn't do great for bps despite generally playing really well and creating a lot), while the likes of Gallagher and Cornet have had double digit hauls recently and are capable of getting those every now and again I think. I'll definitely get Raphinha back (the only players I still have from GW1 are him, Salah and Sanchez) but I feel like short term there are better options

                I'm tempted by Gallagher but know I will want Raph back at some point so might be better to just keep.

                  at the start of the season I thought Raph is a season keeper, maybe im wrong. Leeds are bad at the moment, but Raph creates his own chances

              Raph is so good he creates his own chances. He doesn't get big hauls but I am happy if he keeps ticking along.

              Not sure I would bench him against a (still) vulnerable Spurs defence.

              I don't see Leeds fixtures as great tbh......next 3 are difficult enough scoring wise against Spurs (Conte effect) and Brighton away and then Palace at home. Fair enough they then face Brentford at home but after that they face Chelsea, City and Liverpool away with Arsenal home. Not great imo at the best of times, last season Leeds maybe but those fixtures to me scream lack of goals considering the level Leeds are playing at at present. So for me he's a worthy consideration of making way with two free transfers over the IB to get Son in.

            Sanchez ¦ Steele
            TAA James [X] Reguilon Livramento
            Salah Son [X] Gallagher Mbeumo

            Anyone still got that waste of space semedo? Been benching him every week and thinking I might hold him for the Newcastle and Burnley games. But maybe I should just bin him for cancelo. Thoughts?

              Right here! Have 2FT, planning on some big changes this week including getting rid of Semedo for TAA. Although I can't deny I'm tempted to hold for the Leeds game in GW13, but I should know better than that and expect 2pts at best if I do that

              Cheers guys, yes would be for free although it limits my transfer options in other areas although my team is looking pretty good bar double Brentford and probably worth giving them another go against Newcastle

            If you were to bring in a goalie for next few weeks your choice would be?

            A Guaita
            B McCarthy
            C Ramsdale

            1. Fulchester's New Centr…
              • 4 Years

              Got Guaita yesterday. Happy so far and fixtures pretty good until into next year.
              McCarthy is a double up with Livra presumably which is a bit off-putting.
              Ramsdale is in "god-mode" but surely unsustainable and his next fixture is awful.

            2. krawiecus

                Guaita for the next 'few'

              Best cheap striker for next few GWs as had it with Phoney now

              A Edouard
              B Armstrong

              1. krawiecus
                  2 months, 17 days ago

                  Keep Toney for Newcastle. From those two, both are at risk: Armstrong w/r/t starting, Edouard w/r/t playing on the wing. I'd go Armstrong I think but I much prefer Toney for guaranteed 90 + pens.

                  Well taken goal yesterday, but Armstrong (i) has no real form, (ii) has competition for his spot
                  Zaha virtual OOP making Edouard virtual POO

                  Both have pretty decent fixtures, though Soton have 1 hard one pretty soon, while Palace gentle run goes all the way into next year

                  Not helpful really, sorry

                  Tierney + Bailey to:
                  A) Lamptey + Raphinha
                  B) Johnson/Omo + Jota

                  Bailey/Tierney might drop tonight but I want to wait at least until tomorrow to make sure no injury to Raphinha/Jota. Every 0.1 might count in my long term plan. Would you do the 2 FTs tonight, tomorrow, or would you wait until the end of IB?

                  Ramsdale, Foster
                  TAA, Chilwell, James, Tierney, Livramento

                          Looking good! I'd consider parting with Rudiger semi-soon. 4.5 forward can be upgraded when Jota goes, I guess makes sense for now. Help above?

                              Rudiger downgrade could be on the cards: to Lamptey for example? Depending on the formation you want tbh. But that could help you get up to like Broja / King etc

                              How do you get two midfielders for FWD+MID?

                                    Fair, would be good to know also. I would probably make the move, though reallyyyy dont want to part with Antonio. Wait until tomorrow for sure though. I know Gallagher going up but Son injury risk etc

                                I still think Antonio is a keep.

                              This was not a good game week. Three times more points on the bench (Cancelo) than the other players (Sanchez, Rüdiger, Chilwell and Mbeumo). Unfortunately it seems that I always have such game weeks.

                                You will continue to if bench players like Cancelo, terrible decision

                                    Word. Not to worry, but never bench Cancelo if you have him unless indication he wont start. As Dynamic said. Consider moving off Rudiger. But still, a bit unlucky with Chelsea today, head up

                                how many has everyone got left? I see many people syaing its a bad week already

                                I have 7 left and I have 11 points, im sure tomorrow will be good for most people

                                  5 including captain, so 6 by LiveFPL reckoning.

                                Think I know the answer, but:
                                a) Son and Hwang/Wilson/Wood
                                b) Jota and Kane

                                      Thanks guys. Was thinking that, too. Just means no Son, unfortunately.

                                    If I wait until after the last England game (15 Nov) to buy James, do you think he'll already be up to 6.1 by then?

                                      He's 5.9 and heading higher, so possible.

                                    Gallagher(11) on my bench has over double the points of my captain(4) and vice-captain(1) combined lol
