Check out how your Fantasy team fared in Gameweek 2 against the combined line-up of The Scout's FPL Panel

Did you beat the Fantasy Premier League experts in Gameweek 2?

Some of the world's best FPL managers have combined to create the FPL Experts Panel team.

After a strong Gameweek 1, which delivered 85 points the experts saved their transfer and fielded an unchanged side.

Low-scoring week

But the team were less impressive in Gameweek 2, the 46 points just above the Gameweek average of 41.

Premium picks Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) and Raheem Sterling (£12.1m) disappointed with only six points each, Salah's three points being doubled as he was captain.

The experts joined over 1.8million people in trusting Salah with the armband, but the Egyptian failed to score for the first time in five meetings with Southampton.

Sterling added to his Gameweek 1 hat-trick by scoring the opener in Manchester City’s home encounter with Tottenham Hotspur.

Digne worthy

A triple-up on AFC Bournemouth supplied a further 13 points, with Callum Wilson (£8.0m) earning the assist for Joshua King’s (£6.5m) early penalty at Aston Villa.

The top performer for the experts was Lucas Digne (£6.0m) who delivered 11 points, thanks to an assist, clean sheet and two bonus points in Everton’s 1-0 home win over Watford.

Lundstram frustration

The decision to bench John Lundstram (£4.1m) proved painful. Playing in midfield for Sheffield United but listed as a defender in FPL, he returned 14 points against Crystal Palace, scoring and keeping a clean sheet.

The team's Gameweek 2 score of 46 points moves the experts up to 530,217 in the overall standings, while it is ranked 6,931 out of 24,415 managers in the "Beat the FPL Panel" mini-league.

Kingz rule

Kevin Gilbert is the new leader, taking over from Rob Snaith.

Kevin's team, "korg kingz", managed an impressive 83 points, after he used his Free Hit chip to bring in and captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m) for Arsenal's home match with Burnley. The forward rewarded him with 12 points.

Managers who want to take on the panel should enter the private classic league: "Beat the FPL Panel".

The code to join is: 3hdr4s

Remember to select your Gameweek 3 team before the next deadline of 19:00 BST Friday 23 August.
