Squad: Gameweek 11

team

 

So, Gameweek 11 coincides with the Halloween weekend. Like the other gameweeks were not scary and tense enough already! But that’s how it has always been, tense – yes, but exciting, nail biting and full of surprises. I mean, who could have thought that Jamie Vardy would be the highest scorer of the premier league today! As much as Sheffield United must be celebrating their win over Arsenal this last week, they will surely regret their decision to let go of the 16 year old wonder kid. Oh football, how can such a wonderful game get so cruel…

The last time an article came up from my end, I was instructed to come up with the best team possible (regardless of budget constraints for FFT) so basically, this week I’m on a spending spree as long as we have the best 11 (15) lined up. Starting FFT’s lineup in the goals for gameweek 11 is Petr Cech (5.6), although the Gunners had a bad outing in the Capital one Cup, the experienced keeper couldn’t be counted at fault as much of the issue rested with the inexperienced team that played the other day. Swansea host the London side this weekend and the Gunners would be raring to have a go at their opponents, given that the taste of last season’s similar encounter still remains fresh. Covering the base for the alternative keeper’s position, we have Boaz MyHill (4.8) which is more of a budget buy for the quality provided by the West Brom keeper. Myhill’s demotion down the pecking order is owed to West Broms’s fixture against Leicester City. Now, you would not want your first choice keeper face the top scoring striker of the league would you…

Our defenders this gameweek consist of Toby Alderweireld (5.3), Aleksander Kolarov (6.1) and Hector Bellerin (5.9). Alderweireld has been picking up some great run of form in recent games and with Spurs playing their game against Aston Villa, chances of keeping a cleansheet seems pretty high. Kolarov had a great game last week, which resulted in his team going reclaim the table topper position. This week City face Norwich city who have had a very bad run of games in the recent past, so I’m hoping for a consolation goal to go with that clean sheet as well! Bellerin is in the squad for the right reasons, this lad is slowly building a reputation for being touted as the best RB in the league. Well, only time will tell us whats what. The reserves this week in the defensive positions are Daryl Janmaat (4.9) and Craig Dawson (5.1), both being restricted to the bench owing to slightly tougher fixtures.

The midfield remains strong as ever, leading the pack is Alexis Sanchez (11.6) who has had a one week break before this weekend’s game. Arsenal face Swansea (which I have already noted) which is going to be a really interesting game. Kevin De Bruyne (10.6) retains the title of the ‘wonderkid on the block’ and has a bright chance to shine tomorrow against Norwich City. Dimitri Payet (8.3), well, has been on a great run of form which has helped his team claim a spot within the top 5, while Georginio Wijnaldum (6.9) gets another chance to shine in this weeks game against Stoke City. Warming the bench for FFT this week is Yohan Cabaye (6.6) who unfortunately for himself is injured with little chances of playing.

Now for the strikers – Grazianno Pelle (8.5), Jamie Vardy (7.2) and Odion Ighalo (5.4) are FFT’s strikers for this week, and all of them feature in the playing 11. Reasons for our selection being top scoring forms which means more points!

 

Hope this week’s selections help. A bit scary, but that’s just ’cause it comes with the Halloween flavour. Happy Halloween boys, have a great gameweek!
