Son Heung-Min had 11 points this gameweek thanks to his goal in Tottenham's victory against Newcastle. Sadio Mane got eight points and Marcus Rashford got seven as they scored the only goals for their respective teams. Marcos Alonso got a well-earned clean sheet against Huddersfield giving him six points, while Aaron-Wan Bissaka got five points for shutting out Fulham. Liverpool duo Andrew Robertson and Alisson Becker and Bournemouth pair Joshua King and Ryan Fraser got only two points each. The double game week had contrasting results for Sergio Aguero and Richarlison. The former finished with 38 points while the latter only managed three points in total.
The team however finished well above average.
Gameweek 26 Transfers
David Brooks' injury makes him a potential transfer. The Bournemouth midfielder can be replaced with Andros Townsend or Solly March. However, due to his run of favourable fixtures, Southampton midfielder Nathan Redmond is chosen. Although, not a regular performer, the pacy winger chips in with the occasional goal.
Alisson Becker's lack of performances has been a cause of concern. The Liverpool shot-stopper can be replaced by David De Gea. The Mancunian keeper has shown signs of revival under new management and could be vital in the weeks to come. However, Alisson stays due to the Reds' favourable run of games.
