FPL Gameweek 11 – Best Differentials

FPL GW11 doesn’t have many standout differentials to choose from, with three Brighton players making the list as their fixtures swing from difficult to favourable.

With four of the top five facing each other this weekend, there are not many differentials with kind fixtures, but this list could give you plenty of ideas.

Best Differentials for FPL GW11

The best differential players for GW11 are Neil Maupay, Bryan Mbeumo and Lewis Dunk.

Neil Maupay

  • Picked by: 4%
  • Price: £6.5m
  • Fixtures: Newcastle (H), Aston Villa (a), Leeds (H)

Maupay has four goals this season, already half as many as last season (8).

He’s scored 75% of shots on target (5th most) and as a result has the highest npxG in the team (2.2)

The Frenchman is also on penalties, scoring once from the spot this season, and has received 67 progressive passes (9th most), meaning he could be on for more goals if he continues to get into advanced positions.

Newcastle, his next opponent, are winless and have conceded 23 goals this season, and then Brighton face out of form Villa and Leeds.

Leandro Trossard

  • Picked by: 2%
  • Price: £6.4m
  • Fixtures: Newcastle (H), Aston Villa (a), Leeds (H)

Another Brighton asset that should catch your eye is Trossard, one of Brighton’s most talented players.

The Belgian is a threat in front of goal, scoring twice and taking 26 shots overall (9th most).

Also, he’s very creative, making 19 passes into the penalty area (7th most) and dribbling past 21 players (10th most).

As a result, his npxG+xA is the second highest in the side (2.5).

Bryan Mbeumo

  • Picked by: 5%
  • Price: £5.6m
  • Fixtures: Norwich (H), Newcastle (a), Everton (H)

Mbeumo has been menacing in front of goal, boasting a npxG of 4 (6th highest), but only has two goals, suggesting that more are to come.

They could come this week as Brentford face Norwich, the worst defence in the league, conceding 25 goals.

The Canaries have the worst goal difference at this stage of the season ever (-22), and Mbeumo was rested against Burnley so should be fresh to face the bottom side.

Additionally, Norwich haven’t scored on their travels and Brentford’s defence is good, which means the Frenchman could potentially gain a clean sheet point.

Lewis Dunk

  • Picked by: 5%
  • Price: £5.0m
  • Fixtures: Newcastle (H), Aston Villa (a), Leeds (H)

Dunk has been ever-present in Brighton’s defence, playing every minute this season.

He’s also an aerial threat, yet to score this season but netted 5 times last campaign, four of which were headers.

The defender is also a bonus point magnet, recording the most in the team (7), mainly due to his clean sheets, goals, and passes, having the 8th most touches in the league (743).

Brighton have earned four clean sheets this season and could be on for another in GW11, as Newcastle are winless and The Seagulls have the fifth best defence (11 conceded).

Eric Dier

  • Picked by: 5%
  • Price: £4.5m
  • Fixtures: Everton (a), Leeds (H), Burnley (a)

Based on Spurs’ performances this season, Dier won’t be on many people’s radar, as they’ve conceded 16 goals so far.

However, Conte has officially joined as manager and Dier could be a nailed part of his defence.

Conte plays a back three, which should solidify Spurs’ defence and for £4.5m Dier could be a great differential.

As an alternative, you could get one of their wing-backs, Reguilon, Doherty, or Emerson, who could all thrive in the role. Conte has been known to use a lot of wing-backs, using 6 players in that role during last season at Inter, so expect rotation there.
