Daily Fantasy Premier League Picks: 4th Nov

daily fantasy premier league picks

Week 11 of the Premier League rolls on into two Sunday fixtures. PlayON rolls on too, with Daily Fantasy Premier League offerings for the day.

So that you are maximising your chance to climb to the top of the leaderboards, I have selected the best players across the games for your sides, from big name guns to in-form value picks.

Man City v. Southampton

Monday’s victory over Spurs mean that City remain unbeaten through ten games and sit atop the league table. Southampton have played out back-to-back goalless draws, but are winless in their last six in the league and sit firmly in the bottom half.

The sides have met 28 times at this level, with the Citizens leading by a considerable margin at 15 wins to six. They have also won the last three against the Saints and on current form you cannot see anything but four in a row this weekend.

Add in the fact the hosts are scoring nearly three a game and conceding less than once every three games and you can only see room for Citizens in your PlayON sides.


I keep putting him here, but you cannot overlook the fact the Raheem Sterling (£15.7m) is currently averaging over 300 more than any player in this game and is second only to Eden Hazard from all the players on show on Sunday.

Another assist in round ten, he has now scored four and set up three from eight appearances. In my opinion, he still has another level to get to (see last season’s return) and could well hit that here.

Due at least another game safe from rotation, no reason not to have him in your sides.

Value Pick

Playing all but 17 minutes of City’s season so far, there is no doubt about job security for Fernandinho (£9.1m). He also just happens to be the unsung hero of the team.

While Sterling and co are taking the glory, he goes about his work in midfield, amassing an impressive average of over 1100 featuring just one goal and two assists.

Almost guaranteed a start and a good base score, he is already value but will become a bargain if he can snag an attacking stat here.


Chelsea v. Crystal Palace

Another of the three remaining unbeaten sides are in action on Sunday, as Chelsea host Palace. The Eagles held Arsenal for a good point in round ten, but have just two wins for the season and occupy the lower places.

The 18 Premier League clashes between the teams have produced 12 Blues’ wins and just four for the Eagles, although two of those have come in the last three meetings. On current season form though, the hosts are scoring over two a game and conceding less than one, while the visitors are not scoring too many and shipping a few more.

I can not see past Chelsea here, possibly with a clean sheet to boot, rendering the Palace players somewhat obsolete for PlayON purposes.


As I said above, the only person averaging more than Sterling in Sunday’s games is Eden Hazard (£16m). The Belgian has enjoyed a great start to the season and averages just short of a massive 1900.

He missed the Burnley game last week with a back injury and then sat out the Carabao Cup clash with Derby as a precaution to ensure readiness for this one.

Seven goals and three assists in seven starts is a great return whatever the price. Lock him in!

Value Pick

After a bit-part start to the season, Ross Barkley (£8.8m) has found some form, scoring and laying on three in his last three games. The run has boosted his average over 1050, even with the scattered minutes early on.

Surely having played his way into a starting spot, the form he is in means he should be in your team.

POD Pick

The early injury to Pedro saw big minutes for Ruben Loftus-Cheek (£6.9m) last week and he continued his European form with a goal in the 4-0 rout of Burnley. He must be knocking on the door of a start now. If he continues as he has been when given a full run, he is very under-priced and likely not to feature in too many teams.


Short and sweet, that is Sunday over and done with. When you have settled on a team, head to the Games Lobby to enter it into the PlayON comps.

I’ll see you back here for Monday night football.

Good luck!
