Chelsea's David Luiz one of five goalscoring defenders to dominate as The Scout reviews the Gameweek's top FPL points performers

Defenders were the biggest performers in the penultimate Gameweek of the 2018/19 Fantasy Premier League season. 

David Luiz (£5.8m) led the way with a goal and clean sheet in Chelsea's 3-0 defeat of Watford.

That trend of returns at both ends of the pitch was mirrored across the Dream Team's five-man backline.

Even Huddersfield Town goalkeeper Jonas Lossl (£4.4m) got in on the attacking act to take his place in a side that scored 136 points in a 5-3-2 formation.

Jonas Lossl (HUD) £4.4m; 9pts

The Huddersfield 'keeper was a busy man in the 1-1 draw with Manchester United. He made six saves and set up his side's equaliser, his second assist in two seasons of FPL.

David Luiz (CHE) £5.8m; 15pts

The Brazilian scored his third goal and kept a 15th clean sheet of the campaign to earn maximum bonus points. His 15-point tally matched his previous best return, secured in the 2-0 home win over Manchester City in Gameweek 16.

Ryan Fredericks (WHU) £4.5m; 14pts

Owned by only 0.2 per cent of managers, the West Ham United full-back scored his first league goal in a 3-0 win over Southampton.

Nathan Ake (BOU) £5.1m; 14pts

His last-gasp winner against Tottenham Hotspur was Ake's fourth goal of the season. 

Seamus Coleman (EVE) £5.2m; 14pts

The Irishman scored, kept a clean sheet and earned two bonus points as Everton beat Burnley 2-0. Coleman has now produced returns in six of his last seven starts.

Vincent Kompany (MCI) £5.2m; 13pts

The 33-year-old's long-range screamer was the decisive moment of Man City's 1-0 win over Leicester City. Kompany's 13 points earned him his first double-figure haul of the FPL season. 

Andros Townsend (CRY) £5.6m; 13pts

A goal, an assist and the maximum bonus award, Townsend was the star of Crystal Palace's 3-2 victory at Cardiff City.

Eden Hazard (CHE) £10.9m; 11pts

A modest 64,057 managers brought in Hazard for Chelsea's fixture with Watford. He responded with two assists and an eighth double-figure home haul of the season. 

Scott McTominay (MUN) £4.2m; 9pts

The 22-year-old midfielder matched his best total of the season with a goal at Huddersfield. He has now scored in both of his last two away starts for Man Utd.

Marko Arnautovic (WHU) £6.7m; 13pts

Two goals in West Ham's win over Southampton earned Arnautovic maximum bonus points. Having blanked for eight Gameweeks, the Austrian has now produced returns for two straight weeks.

Salomon Rondon (NEW) £5.9m; 11pts

A strike in the 3-2 defeat by Liverpool took the Newcastle United striker to 10 league goals in a season for the first time. He also provided an assist – his eighth of a productive campaign.
