Well, that’s it. The Premier League season is now over, but what a send off it gave us.
Five teams scored three or more goals which made this one of the highest scoring fantasy weeks of the season. Below are 11 players who earned the most points in the final week of the season.
GK: Jack Butland - Stoke City - 1 Game, 6 Saves, 1 Clean Sheet = 10 Points
DF: Vincent Kompany - Man City - 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Clean Sheet = 14 Points
Kompany has been nothing short of terrific since his return from injury. He has solidified the back line to the tune of five clean sheets in seven matches, and scored three goals over that same period. The Belgian’s performance on Sunday was spectacular and helped to ensure Manchester City secured third place and avoid a Champions League play-off.
DF: Geoff Cameron - Stoke City - 1 Game, 1 Assist, 1 Clean Sheet = 10 Points
DF: Ben Davies - Tottenham - 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Goal Conceded = 8 Points
MF: Paul Pogba - Manchester United - 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Assist = 11 Points
Nobody has accused Pogba of having the most spectacular season, but it was good to see him show some of his fantasy potential in MW38. He directly contributed towards just 16% of Manchester United’s goal this term and will certainly be hoping for better in 2016-17.
MF: Dele Alli - Tottenham - 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Assist = 11 Points
MF: Georginio Wijnaldum - Liverpool - 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Assist = 11 Points
Since joining Liverpool, Wijnaldum has been primarily playing in central midfield which led to a decrease in his fantasy potential. That having been said, while Coutinho and Mane were picking up laudits week on week, Gini was just assisting more than either of them. It’s unlikely he gets much playing time on the wing under Jurgen Klopp but, if he does, he would undoubtedly become a top fantasy asset once more.
MF: Andre Ayew - West Ham - 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Assist = 11 Points
FW: Harry Kane - Tottenham - 1 Game, 3 Goals = 17 Points
It’s hard to believe now but, on Wednesday, Kane was actually two goals behind Romelu Lukaku in the race for the golden boot. That seems a distant memory as the Englishman’s seven goals since then saw him claim the scoring crown with 29 league goals. Having now finished as top scorer two years in a row, Kane will likely have an astronomical price next season.
FW: Sergio Aguero - Manchester City - 1 Game, 2 Goals, 1 Assist = 15 Points
FW: Michy Batshuayi - Chelsea - 1 Substitute Appearance - 2 Goals = 11 Points
