FLC Gameweek 11 – Pick, Risk, Avoid

After Leeds lost ground to Cardiff last week and Aston Villa made a statement about being real contenders, we are unsure of who FLC’s strongest team is. Another cracker in Gameweek 11 should help us with that. Here’s your PRA

Pick

Albert Adomah – Aston Villa are one of the form teams in the FLC at this present moment. They’re scoring plenty of goals and with the likes of James Chester and John Terry at the back, they’re keeping clean sheets. Adomah has recently hit a real run of form. The midfielder has scored four goals in his last three games, and with The Villains next fixture a home tie against bottom side Bolton Wanderers, they will be expecting three points and a good result

Kenneth Zohore – Cardiff City had a little slip a few weeks back, but with a convincing win against Leeds United in their last home game, they’re right back on track at the summit of the FLC. Zohore has been a big part of that with two goals in their last outing and convincing performances all-round. Cardiff will be tested by Derby at home next week, but they should be confident in getting the win.

Martin Waghorn  – Waghorn was in our avoid list only two weeks ago, but since then both Ipswich’s and Waghorn’s form has improved. The Tractor Boys managed to bag five against Sunderland last week and their top scorer was back amongst the goals. This weekend they face Bristol City at Portman Road. Another one that will be a real test, but if they perform like they did against Sunderland, they should keep all three points.

Risk

Leo Bonatini – Bonatini is one of the league’s top players; that is under no doubt. He scores goals, he gets assists, and he is part of one of the strongest teams in the league. However, he isn’t quite as prolific as some of the top strikers in the FLC and with an away tie in a Midlands derby next weekend, it could be a slight risk picking him at £10.2m

Ahmed Elmohamedy – Elmo has struggled in the past in the Premier League, but in the Championship, the Villa wing back looks very much at home. He is part of a very strong defence and is a player well known for getting forward. With only one goal conceded in his last three matches, he’s the Aston Villa defender that you want in your team this week. Especially as they face Bolton Wanderers.

George Saville – Millwall had their troubles as the season began but they seem to have found their feet in the last few matches. The former Chelsea man, Saville, has been a big part of the Millwall team for the past two seasons and in his last three games, he has two goals and two clean sheets. Expect this talented youngster to be snapped up by a bigger club in the next few years. Although Millwall don’t have the strongest side in the league, they face a very poor Barnsley side this weekend.

Avoid

Lamin Kone – Kone is Sunderland’s most expensive defender, and even though he is proven, good player, Sunderland have been woeful this season. After conceding five against Ipswich midweek, their confidence has taken another battering. In fact, some good advice would be to steer clear of any of their defenders until they turn things around.

Matej Vydra – Vydra is a proven goalscorer at this level and has lived up to expectation at Derby this year with four goals. However, Vydra and Derby face league leaders, Cardiff City, away on Saturday. Along with that, Vydra has only managed to score once in his last three games, so for this week especially, he’s a no go.

Luke Freeman – QPR have got a great midfielder in Luke Freeman. The man who transferred from Bristol city last year has two goals, two assists, and four clean sheets this term, and he has one of each in his last three games. The trouble is QPR have stumbled in the last two weeks failing to beat Barnsley and Burton Albion whereas their competitors Fulham have hit form. The west London derby will be a great match, but for this week, you should keep Freeman clear of your starting XI
