Fantasy Football Focus: Gameweek 11 Picks - United and City stars feature

Featuring players from West Ham United, Southampton, Manchester United and Manchester City

Another weekend of Premier League action is almost upon us, and Gameweek 11 kicks off with a bang as Liverpool host Chelsea at Anfield in the Saturday lunchtime game.

That should be an entertaining affair as it so often is, but it's another difficult one to assess from a fantasy football perspective, so managers should look elsewhere for value.

West Ham are continuing to impress, and they take on a struggling Aston Villa side that has lost its last six games, so the Hammers are expected to seal three points yet again.

Southampton are still second in the Premier League table and they have the chance to make it five home wins in a row when they entertain Leicester on Saturday afternoon.

The two Manchester clubs should also be focused on as United host Crystal Palace, while City travel to Queens Park Rangers.

Here's where you should be looking from a fantasy football perspective this weekend:

DEF - Aaron Cresswell - West Ham United

The Hammers have been excellent this season, but have only kept one clean sheet. That was at home against QPR, and they will expect to earn their second of the campaign against an Aston Villa side that has only netted once in their last six. That goal did come last weekend against Spurs, but Christian Benteke's suspension and the deflation after losing so late on against Tottenham should see West Ham win this one relatively comfortably.

DEF - Toby Alderweireld - Southampton

The Saints continue to march on and they have now won three on the spin for the second time this season, and will look to make it five in a row at home when they take on Leicester. Southampton have the best defence in the league, and have kept a clean sheet in their last three. Toby Alderweireld (5.0) is the cheapest option across the backline and he should enjoy another solid weekend as far as fantasy points go.

MID - Angel Di Maria - Manchester United

Maybe quite an obvious choice, but when a player is as expensive as Di Maria (10.1), it's about knowing when he will deliver. He has been excellent at Old Trafford so far and will look to punish a Crystal Palace side that is without a win in five. Di Maria has not contributed a goal in his last two but should bounce back with a strong performance against the Eagles on Saturday.

MID - Dusan Tadic - Southampton

It is difficult to ignore Tadic now, especially when the Saints play at home as he has been unstoppable at St Mary's. The Serbian has six assists and one goal in five home matches this term and will look to add to that tally against Leicester. The Foxes have conceded 11 in their last six and will struggle to come away from Southampton with a clean sheet this weekend. Expect Tadic (7.8) to deliver once again at a reasonable price.

FOR - Sergio Aguero - Manchester City

The City striker is the most expensive forward in the game at 12.6, but an away trip to QPR should see him deliver on the price tag if you can afford it. QPR have conceded the most goals in the league and City will be desperate to get back to winning ways after their disappointing defeat to CSKA Moscow on Wednesday night. They have netted in all of their away games so far and will be looking to pile the pressure on the R's with a convincing win. Aguero has seven in his last five league games and should add to that this week.
