Martin Dubravka – £6.6m: 11 points

The Newcastle goalkeeper rewarded 1.4 per cent of Fantasy Football managers with another clean sheet – his 10th of the season – alongside bonus points from reaching tier one saves. His 131 points throughout the season are the most that a Newcastle player has registered, which is a testament to the fine campaign he has had.

Virgil van Dijk – £9.9m: 12 points

Van Dijk jumped back into double figures once more as he kept a 17th clean sheet of the season, averaging one every two matches for Jurgen Klopp’s side. He grabbed an assist for Mohamed Salah’s goal and racked up tier one bonus points for the fourth time in five matches. The Dutch defender has recorded 60 points from his last seven Premier League games, averaging over 8.5 per match, while topping the Fantasy Football charts with 261 points, 17 more than second-placed Eden Hazard.

Trent Alexander-Arnold – £8.4m: 11 points

Alexander-Arnold now has 16 points from his last two matches, thanks to a clean sheet in Liverpool’s win over Chelsea. By obtaining tier one bonus points for tackles and passes, the Englishman sneaks into the Team of the Week in place of Davinson Sanchez, who scored 10 points.

Willy Boly – £6.1m: 11 points

Boly picked up the same bonus points as Alexander-Arnold, as well as scoring his fourth goal of the season against Southampton. His debut Premier League campaign has been impressive, with his ownership figures currently at 14.7 per cent.

Ryan Fraser – £8.3m: 16 points

Fraser has had a quiet couple of months regarding Fantasy Football points, yet he has been directly involved in four goals from his last five fixtures (two goals, two assists). His 16 points give him 166 for the season so far and put him 11 ahead of his team-mate Callum Wilson in respect to Bournemouth performers in Fantasy Football this term.

Raheem Sterling £11.5m: 19 points

A 19-point haul took Sterling to a seasonal tally of 219 points and the English winger has 68 points in his last six, averaging more than 11 per match in that period. With his weekend score, Sterling moves into the top four in Fantasy Football points this year, contributing to 28 goals through his 17 strikes and 11 assists. He has three Sky Sports Man of the Match awards in his last six matches.

Nathan Redmond – £7.3m: 21 points

Redmond has two goals and two assists to his name in his last six Premier League fixtures, while he has two MOTM awards in three matches. He is averaging 11 in his last three and has 128 Fantasy Football points from his nine goal contributions and four MOTM’s.

Paul Pogba – £10.6m: 19 points

Pogba returned to his valuable self as he racked up 19 points from converting two penalties and subsequently earning an MOTM award. His points total from the West Ham game is comfortably more than what he had clocked up in his previous six, so it was a welcome return for the 20.6 per cent of Fantasy Football bosses who have the World Cup winner in their side.

Lucas Moura – £9m: 27 points

Moura posted his largest tally of the season as he scored a hat-trick in Tottenham’s victory over Huddersfield in their new stadium. He has four goals in three Premier League games and is going to have to continue this kind of ratio in order to fill Harry Kane’s boots and equally keep Tottenham within reach of a top-four spot.

With his goals at the weekend, he is in double figures for goals, which is a modest amount in a supporting role to Kane and Heung-min Son, which only a mere 5.4 per cent of Fantasy Football managers will be hoping he can kick on towards the end of the term.

Callum Wilson – £9.7m: 13 points

Wilson has 12 goals and 11 assists for Eddie Howe’s team, contributing to three goals against Brighton through his one strike and two assists. He has had a hand in five goals in as many games since his return from injury, recording 34 Fantasy Football points in that time, just short of seven per match.
