Andrew Robertson is the highest scoring defender with 168 points.
The title race saw a change in leadership as Liverpool stumbled against Everton with the Merseyside derby ending in a well-fought goalless draw. Manchester City toiled to get three points against a spirited Bournemouth side while Chelsea found it a tad bit difficult to come out on top in the West London derby against Fulham. Goals from Higuain and Jorginho, however, cemented three points for them with a 2-1 victory.
Manchester United came back from a goal down against Southampton thanks to a brace from Romelu Lukaku while Tottenham and Arsenal played out a gritty draw in Wembley.
Gameweek 29 Review
A very disappointing week for the team with only two players getting more than three points. Lukasz Fabianski got six points for his exploits against Newcastle while Andrew Robertson got five points for a clean sheet against Everton. Sadio Mane got three points from the same game while Ryan Fraser, Marcus Rashford and Sergio Aguero got two points each.
Richarlison, Joshua King and Matt Doherty finished with one point each while Ricardo Pereira came away with no points from the week. However, the biggest disappointment of the week turned out to be captain Paul Pogba whose penalty miss caused him to lose two points and end up in negative.
Gameweek 30 Transfers
Richarlison looks likely to be the prime candidate for replacement due to lack of form and game time in Everton. He has not registered a goal or assist in five games and could be replaced by Luka Milivojevic, Andros Townsend or Roberto Pereyra. However, due to a relatively easy fixture this week, the Brazilian is retained.
No transfers are made.
