Our Fantasy writer highlights players from the Citizens and the Reds - amongst others - who put in great performances for both their teams and yours

Matchweek 11 of Premier League action is now in the books and there were interesting developments at both ends of the table, with Manchester City continuing their dominant unbeaten run while Bournemouth and Everton both managed to climb out of the relegation spots with wins this weekend.

Understandably, each of those three clubs all placed at least one player in our team of the week; keep reading to see the other players who had the best performances in the Goal Fantasy game.

GK: Asmir Begovic - Bournemouth - 1 Game, 5 Saves, 1 Clean Sheet = 9 Points

DF: Steve Cook - Bournemouth - 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Clean Sheet = 14 Points

This one came out of nowhere as the Bournemouth man started the match with no goals and just one clean sheet, yet he managed to get one of each on Saturday. His starting record is spotty and, there is basically no evidence that he could repeat this performance, but he has a kind schedule and price if you feel brave enough to roster him.

DF: Scott Malone - Huddersfield - 1 Game, 1 Assist, 1 Clean Sheet = 10 Points

DF: Cesar Azpilicueta - Chelsea - 1 Game, 1 Assist, 1 Clean Sheet = 10 Points

The Azpilicueta-to-Morata train keeps chugging along at a ridiculous pace and it is now the most prolific connection in the Premier League, having happened five times already this season. The time to buy on the defender could well be now, with seven of his next 10 matches coming against bottom ten attacks.

DF: Leighton Baines - Everton - 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Assist, 2 Goals Conceded = 10 Points

MF: Mohamed Salah - Liverpool - 1 Game, 2 Goals = 14 Points

Salah’s two goal outing against West Ham was good enough to make him our Player of the Week and is now both the highest scoring midfielder in both the Premier League (7 goals) and the Goal Fantasy game (69 points). Even more impressive is that this looks wholly sustainable as the Egyptian also leads the league in shots on target. He is, and has been, a must own for a few weeks now.

MF: Xherdan Shaqiri - Stoke - 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Assist = 11 Points

MF: Kevin De Bruyne - Manchester City - 1 Game, 1 Goal = 8 Points

MF: Son Heung-Min - Tottenham - 1 Game, 1 Goal = 8 Points

Heung-Min Son Tottenham

Congratulations are in order as Son’s goal against Crystal Palace made him the highest scoring Asian player in Premier League history. After beginning the season as a rotation risk, he has now started the last four league matches and scored twice in that stretch. Considering Tottenham have a top five attack, Son could become a very interesting differential option if continues to hold down a starting spot.
