FPL managers have never been more busy, as the games come thick and fast. With the another round of European fixtures done, we look at all the action that’s taken place across the week and analyse the top 5 FPL players to watch for in gameweek 11 of the 2022/23 FPL season.

5. Lewis Dunk (£4.6m)

In a week where the defensive options are so threadbare, it would be an injustice to pen down this list without mentioning a defender who could deputize for a lot of the players who are either injured or blanking in gameweek 12. Brighton defender Lewis Dunk is where I’d hedge my bets until more options show up.

The Seagulls face Brentford and Forest in their next 2 games. Despite De Zerbi not having kept a cleansheet in his reign as manager so far, it is difficult to fault the Italian because of the quality of the opposition he’s faced in Liverpool and Spurs.

But Lewis Dunk (25 points) and co will expect to go back to basics and start keeping cleansheets again when facing sides from the bottom half of the table. He’s nailed on for minutes and an added goal threat, which is essential for the next 2 weeks, and is hence our defensive pick for the week.

4. Antony (£7.6m)

Man United’s most expensive transfer has started the season in great fashion. Scoring in each of his 3 matches for the club so far, he has 21 points already. Antony has taken like a fish to water so far in the PL, with an xG of 0.8. He also has 7 SCA, which is a lot for a player who’s played less than 240 minutes in the league.

Considering he’s gotten those points hauls against big teams like Arsenal and Man City, and a defensively sturdy Everton team, he can be expected to continue his form despite having further tricky fixtures down the line. With Martial an injury doubt for the weekend, he’s United’s best attacking outlet currently, which makes him a great bet at just £7.6m and less than 10% ownership.

3. Son Heung-Min (£11.7m)

Last season’s golden boot winner might have started the season slowly, getting his first PL goal in only the 8th gameweek of the season. But the South Korean superstar is back to his best with a brace midweek against Eintracht Frankfurt, the second of which was a sumptuous volley.

He also managed to get Tuta sent off with some fine close control dribbling, indicating a return to both form and confidence on the ball. This bodes well for FPL managers looking for a premium midfield option for managers looking to replace Salah or De Bruyne. He has an xG of 2.5 this season, which shows he has had the chances all season and just needed his finishing boots, which he has finally found again.

2. Miguel Almiron (£5.2m)

It was a toss up between Bruno Guimarães and Almiron for this spot. But to be honest, we could’ve had both on this list. The Paraguayan has however been in sublime goal scoring touch. Almiron has equaled his best ever goal tally for a season with 4 goals, with 3 of them coming in his last 2 games.

With an xG of 3.1, he is a solid goal threat. He has 14 shots in the box so far, the highest by a Newcastle player. This indicates his involvement in the final third. Priced at just £5.2m, he is a cheap differential, who could enable you to use your funds elsewhere.

1. Harry Kane (£11.4m)

The England goal scoring machine has 8 goals this season, only behind Haaland who leads the charts at 15. He has gotten points hauls in every game so far, bar the opening week. With his partner in crime Son now back in form, Kane could be in for not just more goals, but more assists as well, as evident in his performance midweek against Frankfurt.

He scored 1 and assisted 1, and could’ve added to his goal tally if not for his penalty miss in the dying minutes. With a whopping xG of 6.1 and npxG of 4.5 this season, he is in tremendous form. Spurs play in gameweek 12 during City and Arsenal’s blanks. This means he could be a great option to have in the long run with Spurs’ fixtures also looking enticing.
