How did you do against the Fantasy Premier League experts in Gameweek 10?

The FPL Experts Panel team is run by some of the best Fantasy managers in the world.

And their decision to play their Wildcard paid off handsomely as they scored an impressive 60 points, moving up 462,506 places in the overall standings.

This is the first time in six Gameweeks that the team has beaten the average score.

Sterling success

The experts’ joined over 1.19million managers in handing Raheem Sterling (£12.1m) the captain’s armband. He rewarded their faith with a 22-point captaincy haul thanks to a goal and maximum three bonus points in Manchester City's 3-0 home win over Aston Villa.

It’s the experts’ biggest captain score since Mohamed Salah (£12.4m) returned 24 points in Gameweek 1.

Four players contributed assists, with cut-price forward Aaron Connolly (£4.6m) providing two in Brighton & Hove Albion’s 3-2 home victory over Everton.

Helpful assistance

Elsewhere Kevin De Bruyne (£10.2m), Sadio Mane (£11.9m), and Tammy Abraham (£7.8m) all supplied a single assist apiece.

The experts made five late changes to their Wildcard team, with new arrival Benjamin Mendy (£5.9m) earning a clean sheet against Villa.

However, they will have regretted their last-minute decision to replace Jamie Vardy (£9.2m) and Mason Mount (£6.9m) with Connolly and Mane.  

Vardy delivered 20 points in Leicester City’s record 9-0 win at Southampton, scoring a hat-trick and supplying an assist.

Join to beat them

The team’s Gameweek 10 score of 60 points moves them up to 1,795,806 in the overall standings. It is ranked 24,170 out of 43,254 teams in the "Beat the FPL Panel" mini-league.

Lewis Robson moves back to the top of the leaderboard as Darren Hyett drops down to third.

Lewis’s team, Sev’s Magicians, scored an impressive 69 points with new signing Connolly contributing two assists.

The 19-year-old joins Mason Greenwood (£4.3m) as the second budget forward in Lewis’s squad.

Midfield masterclass

Instead of spending money on the frontline, the Arsenal fan has invested heavily in midfield with Salah, Mane, Sterling, and De Bruyne all featuring. The tactic is clearly working with Lewis currently 17th overall.

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