With Gameweek 11 just a few days away, we look at players who can stretch your budget and hopefully bring in some points too. We look at "Form", "Average Points Per Match","Goals Scored","Assists","Clean Sheets","Influence","Creativity","Threat","Passing Accuracy","Tackles Won" and "Bonus Points". Our Gameweek 11 choices are as follows:
DEF : Nick Pope (BUR) - £4.5m
Having to step in for an injured Tom Heaton during Gameweek 4, Nick Pope has shown his worth as a strong goalkeeper being Burnley's third highest pointscorer behind Stephen Ward and Matthew Lowton, who are both defenders. This strong defensive unit work well as Pope has already kept 3 cleansheets, made 34 saves and averages 5.3 points per match. Its no surprise that he has raked up 6 bonus points in the process. Facing a Southampton side who are below them in 10th position, it will come as no surprise if the Burnley Bus parks in front of the goalpost this weekend!
MID : Xherdan Shaqiri (STK) - £5.9m
This highly creative midfielder is a vital component of the Stoke City attack. Providing 3 assists, scoring 1 goal and averaging 3.6 points per match, Shaqiri is known for creating big chances in the box and being a nightmare for defenders. With an 82% passing accuracy and 70% of tackles won, he faces a Leicester City side who have conceded 8 goals away from home. Coming off an impressive win against an in-form Watford side, the wave of momentum can continue and play into Shaqiri's favour.
FWD : Tammy Abraham (SWA) - £5.8m
Having 4 goals to his name already, its clear that Tammy Abraham finds the right places in the box as he is proving to be more effective than Jordan Ayew. Also providing 1 assist and averaging 4.6 points per match, he seems a worthwhile inclusion as he has 86% tackles won and 7 out of his 17 shots have been on target, with 4 of them resulting in his goals scored. Its no surprise that in the process he has picked up 8 bonus points! Swansea face Brighton at home this weekend, which could go either way in all honesty. Brighton have conceded 6 goals away from home and this number could increase should Tammy Abraham bring the threatening form that he is highly capable of.
