Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 11
Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 11. Lists. They’re all over the internet. The problem is that most of them start with a few banal ‘under the radar’ choices that no-one cares about, ultimately ascending to a stonkingly obvious no.1; to wit, “Top 10 Hated Star Wars Characters”; “2001’s Most Shocking Incidents”; and “The Best 5 Football Management Simulators for your PC.” Discussing the lists’ also-rans is rarely little more than a thinly veiled ego-stroking exercise for the compiler to constipate the reader with unnecessary information in an overly verbose and periphrastic manner.
If you’re reading this, then perhaps you like lists; or maybe you’re the editor of this website and you’re proofreedin it; or maybe you simply like the suspense of scrolling down lists wondering how I’m going to create any form of tension when it’s really obvious that Aguero is number one? Well wait no longer, as we march onwards to Gameweek 11’s Captain Picks. First up is…
5. CHARLIE AUSTIN – Hull (a)
Having shamelessly ousted Shane Long (who himself was just getting used to Pelle not being around) from the Saints XI, Austin looks like he’s there for keeps. A fond fantasy favourite in days of yore, many had worried that he’d prematurely joined Michu in the FPL alumni never to grace our watchlists again. Prior to visiting the Etihad, the 27 year-old had scored 4 in as many games, so if he can pick up that form on Sunday he might just gazump a few of the bigger names and put you ahead of the curve, because rather like Pablo Escobar setting up shop in Wall Street this would create a stampede for Charlie.
4. ALEXIS SANCHEZ – Spurs (h)
Amazingly, Sanchez didn’t register a single goal against Burnley, Swansea or Middlesbrough, testing the patience of us all. Thankfully the last chance saloon was open for business and our hero Chuck Sanchez had soon cleared the place out with two goals to see off the mighty….erm… Sunderland to notch his 4th double digit FPL haul of this campaign. He faces a much sterner test in Sunday’s matinee facing the likes of Kyle Walker, Texas Ranger; so expect a blockbuster.
3. EDEN HAZARD – Everton (h)
8, 8, 14. Nope, not my four-digit ATM pin… oh crap. It is. Well, it also happens to be Hazard’s last three gameweek scores. In that time he’s been near the summit of almost every stat chart going: Goals (3, 1st), shots (12, 3rd), shots on target (5, 5th), shots in the box (9, 4th) and final third passes (61, 9th). Yeah, that was really boring. Remind me never to do that again.
2. PHILIPPE COUTINHO – Watford (h)
Candice makes a great point; the Liverpool midfielder’s shot count of 41 is second only to Ibrahimovic (and let’s face it, who isn’t?) landing 16 on target. However, Walter Mazzarri has made Watford difficult to play against, conceding only a goal a game with the 6th best away record, so it wouldn’t be the biggest shock if Anfield witness a tighter game than they’re used to.
1. SERGIO AGUERO – Middlesbrough (h)
On the other hand, you’d probably sink about 500k in the rankings so I guess there’s that.
