Welcome back to another differential picks for FPL Gameweek 11 article where we identify our favourite low ownership players as our GW11 differential picks.
Last week’s tips bred mixed results, Cole Palmer was Chelsea’s most influential attacking player in their defeat to Brentford, he returned two points. Arsenal’s David Raya kept a Clean Sheet as he earned himself six points and Micky van de Ven was a 94th minute goal away from earning himself a six point return.
We’re trying to keep the players unique and fresh, so as much as I love Hwang Hee-chan, I’ll be keeping him away from this article for a couple of weeks.
Let’s hope we can have a bit more luck from our Gameweek 11 differential picks!

Joško Gvardiol (4.5%)
Three things are guaranteed in life; death, taxes, and ‘Pep Roulette.’ Although signed from RB Leipzig as a Centre-Back – it has been as a Left-Back where we’ve seen Joško Gvardiol make his mark on the Premier League. The Croatian International.
The 21-year-old hasn’t looked out of place since his move from Germany and has fitted in seamlessly into Pep’s intricate style of play with his versatility across the back making him less prone to rotation.
Weirdly, despite settling in effortlessly at the Etihad Stadium, there really hasn’t been much to rave about with Gvardiol’s performances, but that’s ideal for Pep as it means he’s also never really put a foot wrong. He’s currently producing 0.8 Key Passes per game and 2.4 Long Balls per game, when you’ve got Erling Haaland to aim for these stats could quickly turn into assists.
If we turn our attention to Manchester City’s run of fixtures, they face Bournemouth (H) and Chelsea (A) in their next two games. The Cherries currently rank in the bottom of the Premier League for xG with 12.15 and Chelsea sit midtable for xG with 19.23, despite a higher number, Chelsea do struggle in front of goal.
So if you’re looking for a cheaper defender that could produce defensive and attacking returns, our first FPL Gameweek 11 differential of Joško Gvardiol could be your man.
Jack Harrison (0.1%)
Having shaken off a hip injury that saw Harrison miss the opening weeks of the season, the Everton man has immediately found himself as a regular starter for Sean Dyche’s side – starting each of the last three Premier League games.
He seems to be enjoying his football as well, his first goal of the season was a special one curling home on the half-volley against Bournemouth a few weeks ago. Harrison contributed an assist in the same game, before registering an assist in Everton’s 1-0 win over West Ham in Gameweek 10.
His cheap price tag allows you to have him as your fifth midfielder and rotate in and out of your team when you feel is fit. With fixtures coming up against Brighton, Crystal Palace, Nottingham Forest and Burnley, three of which are in the bottom 10 for xGA, Harrison’s potential upside is interesting.
Everton are quietly finding a bit of form having won three of their last six fixtures, if they are to put together a more consistent run our Gameweek 11 differential, Jack Harrison, will have a part to play.
Diogo Dalot (2.3%)
Our final Gameweek 11 FPL differential comes from the red side of Manchester in the form of Right-Back Diogo Dalot. Granted, things aren’t looking great for Manchester United right now, but they have an incredible chance to turn around their fortunes with a more than favourable run of fixtures.
Their next three games consist of Fulham (A), Luton (H) and Everton (A). Fulham currently sit 18th in the table for xG at 11.05, with Luton 13th with an xG of 13.91.
If you delve a little deeper and look at xG away from home, the London outfit rank 16th in the table with a xG of 5.74 from their six away fixtures. Premier League newcomers Luton have scored just three goals in front of their home crowd this season and have scored just nine if you include away games.
Erik ten Haag’s side are going through somewhat of an injury hit run, especially at the back. Aaron Wan-Bissaka remains injured and hasn’t played a game since Gameweek 5, Luke Shaw’s muscle injury has seen him missing since Gameweek 2 and Lisandro Martinez is still out with a foot injury of his own.
Dalot has found the back of the net this season, and to his credit, if he does get into the final third he’s a dangerous asset for Manchester United.
There you have it, three Gameweek 11 FPL Differentials for you to consider. As always – make transfers at your own risk.
