The Scout analyses the Gameweek 10 action so far ahead of Sunday’s four matches

A hat-trick and an assist against Southampton has propelled Jamie Vardy (£9.2m) to the top of the Fantasy Premier League points table.

The Leicester City striker was the second most-bought player for Gameweek 10, earning over 275,000 transfers in. 

And he rewarded his new owners with a 20-point return in Friday night's 9-0 win, matching the highest individual haul in 2019/20 FPL.

He now has 74 points, two more than his nearest challenger, Kevin De Bruyne (£10.2m).

Foxes showing their teeth

Vardy was among four Leicester players to deliver double-digit hauls at St Mary’s Stadium.

Ayoze Perez (£6.0m) also registered a hat-trick to match Vardy's 20-point haul, while his fellow midfielder Youri Tielemans (£6.5m) scored once and supplied an assist to claim 11 points.

Meanwhile, left-back Ben Chilwell (£5.5m) added a goal and two assists to his clean sheet to tally 19 points.

Encouragingly, Leicester’s upcoming schedule raises their prospects of further big hauls.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), six of their next seven opponents score just two.

Vardy, Chilwell, Perez and Tielemans are currently the four most transferred-in players ahead of Gameweek 11.

American hero

Christian Pulisic (£7.1m) more than doubled his FPL points tally for the campaign in Chelsea’s 4-2 win at Burnley.

The US international scored a hat-trick and picked up the maximum bonus to also serve up 20 points.

His team-mate Willian (£7.0m) produced his own season-high haul of 12 points, thanks to a goal and assist at Turf Moor.

Meanwhile, the most-captained player of Gameweek 10, Raheem Sterling (£12.1m), returned his first double-digit haul since the opening weekend.

Handed the armband by 1.19million managers, he delivered 11 points in Manchester City's 3-0 win over Aston Villa.

His team-mate David Silva (£7.7m) also justified his place in the Gameweek 10 Scout Selection, scoring his third goal in five Gameweeks.

More joy for Maupay

Brighton and Hove Albion's forwards continue to provide strong value too.

Neal Maupay (£6.0m) and Aaron Connolly (£4.6m) combined for 17 points in a 3-2 win over Everton.

Maupay, who was highlighted by The Scout as one to watch for Gameweek 10, has now scored in three successive home matches. He hosts Norwich City in Gameweek 11.

Elsewhere, Watford continue to produce improved defensive displays, keeping a second successive clean sheet in a goalless draw with AFC Bournemouth.

Ben Foster (£4.8m) was again the standout performer for the Hornets.

The goalkeeper has claimed 10 points in both of his last two matches at Vicarage Road.
