FPL Review: GW 11 Winners & Losers As Haaland Blanks And Kepa Surprises

Haaland blanks in FPL. There. That’s the headline.

Liverpool’s somewhat surprising victory over Manchester City ended a very exciting Premier League GW.

A much better weekend for defenders, and not so much for the attackers, here is Thick Accent’s FPL review for GW11. You can check out the final results here.

Winners:

Alisson

A clean sheet in PL is good. One against a free-scoring City is better. But top this off with an assist and it would make for a dream GW for a goalkeeper.

Alisson did just that, even securing 3 BPs, to end with a career-best 14 points.

Owned by 13.1% of owners, attractive pre-WC fixtures make him an attractive option if Liverpool stops conceding.

Mason Mount

Mount has scored more points in the previous 2 GWs than in the previous 7 combined. Two assists against Wolves were bettered by a couple of goals against Aston Villa.

One came off a horrendous mistake by Mings while the second came off a well-taken free kick.

One clean sheet, two goals, and three bonus points = 15 points for the midfielder.

Kepa Arrizabalaga

Our top differential pick secured a double-digit haul with his second consecutive clean sheet and some extremely good saves to keep Villa.

Kepa has quietly returned to the starting XI and solidified his spot. Certainly, one to look out for.

Dominic Solanke

We first recommended Solanke in our GW9 Preview. In the three games since the striker has scored once and assisted thrice.

Solanke opened the scoring with a very well-taken goal against Fulham before assisting Lerma for Cherries’ second.

He has started in every game since GW5 and his form is making him hard to drop, for real and FPL managers.

Losers:

James Maddison

There is just one place to start. Yes, there were worse performers than Maddison but the midfielder’s impact will be felt not just in the GW but the next one too.

James was on four yellows prior to his game against Palace. Another caution would rule him out of GW12, which already has City and Arsenal blanks.

The one thing managers did not want was this to happen. Well, James did not get the memo. We are certain that his 15.9% ownership, and his price, will fall in the lead-up to the next deadline and beyond.

Trent Alexander-Arnold

We know he did not play. And therein lies his loss. Liverpool has kept only one clean sheet when Trent has played for more than an hour, with the CS coming in the 9-0 rout against Bournemouth.

TAA was removed in the 58th minute against Everton (0-0) and played only a few minutes as a sub against City (1-0 win).

Is Klopp finally off the Trent bandwagon too? Only time will tell.

But we’re really not sure what the 19% of owners are doing still having the fullback in their teams.

Marquee Mids

Just a poor set of matches in general for the high-flying midfielders in FPL this season. Foden, Martinelli, KDB, Trossard, Zaha, and Rashford all blanked.

Forget and move on.
