Long-running leader brings in Man City striker for final day as he clinches Fantasy crown

New Zealander Adam Levy has won the Fantasy Premier League title by a comfortable 57-point margin after avoiding any major final-day drama.

His #TheyAreUs team stayed well clear, on 2,659 points, of a fast-finishing James Sutton in second place.

Levy scored 71 points in Gameweek 38, with seven of his XI bringing in returns.

Trent Alexander-Arnold was his top performer on 15 points, while Andrew Robertson, Aymeric Laporte, Christian Eriksen and Raheem Sterling also delivered.

Transfer nous

But it was some canny transfer business that eased any major last-day jitters.

Adam rolled over a free transfer from Gameweek 36 to bring in Sergio Aguero, a player owned by his nearest rivals.

He then handed the Manchester City striker the armband, bringing in 12 points.

His other move also paid dividends as Nathan Redmond scored and was awarded maximum bonus for a 10-point haul in Southampton's 1-1 draw with Huddersfield Town.

Having led FPL since Gameweek 29, Levy's victory was a reward for planning and patience as he took a transfer hit on only four occasions all season.

The chasing pack

English manager Sutton secured second place with a strong 83-point Gameweek 38.

Compatriot Andrew Green rounded off the top three with a 78-point haul that took him from eighth place to a podium finish.

Further down the standings, two managers burst into the top 10 on the final day.

Indonesia-based Arifiansyah R scored 93 points to finish seventh, while Australian Jack March claimed ninth spot thanks to a 92-point haul.

But the ultimate glory remained with Levy, the 2018/19 FPL champion.
