Zero Hero – Gameweek 11


Name: Joshua King
Team: Bournemouth
Position: Midfielder
Price: £5.4M

This feature will recommend a punt pick with 0% ownership.

The first ever 0% pick was an obvious choice for me. Sailing in at only 0.9% ownership and playing against Sunderland at HOME for GW 11 Joshua King is known to bang in the odd goal here and there. King has netted two goals and produced one assist so far for Bournemouth and a total of 33 points so far this season. His current form on FPL is 3.0.

His Opponents: Sunderland
Joshua faces a beaten up Sunderland side who have struggled to get points on the board so far this season. At the bottom of the Premier League table with only 2 points after 10 GW’s and without a win, Bournemouth will be hungry to add more points to the table with a win. Sunderland have conceded 20 goals so far which makes it their worst ever start to a Premier League season. Due to Sunderland’s poor form, Joshua should have a starting place in the team.

A bit about the man himself:
Joshua King was born in Norway and was signed by Man Utd in 2008 from Valerenga. The 24 year old was signed by Bournemouth in 2015 from Blackburn Rovers and has been playing for Norway’s first team since 2012 (His National side). His position is a combination of a winger and a forward. He wears the number 17 shirt.

Overall, King is a mad pick and is owned by very few managers for that exact reason. He is an experienced footballer and has been coached by Sir Alex Ferguson in his early years with United. With King’s good history and upcoming fixtures he sure is an exciting addition. Priced only at £5.4M he’s a cheap midfield option and a great differential.

Prediction (Points) : 8+ pts
