The four-goal haul for Everton's leading man dominated the Fantasy landscape while the Manchester City youngster proved his credentials once again

Romelu Lukaku stole the show for Fantasy Football players in Premier League Match Week 24 with a record breaking performance at Goodison Park.  

Our expert highlighted the advantage of having an underpriced Gabriel Jesus in your Goal Fantasy Football team and that advice proved a shrewd move as Sergio Aguero started on the bench and saw the 19-year-old score twice against a resillient Swansea side.

Here's a look at the best line-up you could have picked in the Goal game.

GK: Vito Mannone – Sunderland – 1 Game, 8 Saves, 1 Clean Sheet = 11 Points

Sunderland Crystal Palace Lamine Kone

DF: Lamine Kone – Sunderland – 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Clean Sheet = 14 Points

Having been linked with a move away from the Stadium of Light in the January transfer window, Kone's impressive showing in Sunderland's 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace will be a much-needed fillip for an under pressure David Moyes. With 14 points to his name, the Ivory Coast international was the highest scoring defender of the weekend by a clear margin.

DF: Andrea Ranocchia – Hull City – 1 Game, 1 Assist, 1 Clean Sheet = 10 Points

DF: Chris Smalling – Manchester United – 1 Game, 1 Assist, 1 Clean Sheet = 10 Points

MF: James McCarthy – Everton – 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Assist = 11 Points


MF: Henrikh Mkhitaryan – Manchester United – 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Assist = 11 Points

Jose Mourinho's men barely had to get out of second gear to run out easy winners against the reigning Premier League champions. Hapless Leicester City are sliding down the table at an alarming rate and it could be a wise move to ensure your Goal Fantasy Football team contains plenty of players facing the Foxes in the coming weeks. After a quiet start to the season, last term's Bundesliga player of the year is showing his potential at Old Trafford and could be a shrewd pick at just £7.0m.

MF: Pedro Obiang – West Ham – 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Assist = 11 Points

MF: Ross Barkley – Everton – 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Assist = 11 Points

FWD: Jermain Defoe – Sunderland – 1 Game, 2 Goals = 12 Points

FWD: Romelu Lukaku – Everton – 1 Game, 4 Goals = 22 Points

Marcus Alonso (22) held the record for the number of points scored in a single match week this season but the Chelsea full-back was spectacularly overtaken by Lukaku. Having already struck 12 times before Bournemouth's visit to Goodison Park, the 23-year-old fired a four-goal haul to go clear in the top goalscorer charts. With Middlesbrough, Sunderland and Hull City coming up in the next five matches, the Belgian frontman could yet have plenty of presentable opportunities to add to his tally.

FWD: Gabriel Jesus – Manchester City – 1 Game, 2 Goals = 12 Points
