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 

Jordan Ayew - Swansea City 21052017

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: Michy Batshuayi - Chelsea - 1 Substitute Appearance - 2 Goals = 11 Points
