The Bonus Points
In addition to opening the scoring, the Northern Ireland international also produced 14 clearances, blocks and interceptions (CBI) and seven recoveries.
Hull City’s Michael Dawson (£4.4m) collected two bonus points.
Scoring 23 in the BPS, the defender grabbed his side’s equaliser and completed 81% of 49 attempted passes. He also contributed nine CBI and six recoveries.
Allan Nyom (£4.3m) secured bonus awards for consecutive Gameweeks, with 17 in the BPS earning him the final point on offer. The Baggies full-back won three tackles and made nine recoveries.
The ICT Index
With modest ICT Index scores on show in this contest, McAuley and Dawson led the way with 7.9 and 7.2 respectively.
Both found the net with their only attempt on goal, with the Baggies’ centre-half bettering Dawson by three touches inside the penalty box to one.
Hull City’s Robert Snodgrass (£5.6m) matched Dawson’s tally of 7.2.
The Tigers playmaker registered three attempts on goal – all from outside the area – with two on target.
He also supplied two goalscoring opportunities and completed 17 passes in the final third, more than any other player in the match.
The Scout Notes
McAuley’s third goal of the season has taken him to fourth place in the FPL defender standings, earning him more than 41,000 new owners since the weekend.
Now found in 26.7% of squads, only Swansea City's Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.3m) has attracted greater transfer interest since Saturday's deadline.
Matt Phillips (£5.3m) provided the assist for McAuley’s opener and has attracted 26,000 new owners ahead of Gameweek 14.
With two goals and three assists in his last three outings he looks a secure selection in midfield.
Robertson, in particular, could be handed a starting role at left-back at the expense of Josh Tymon (£4.0m) as the Tigers prepare for clashes against Middlesbrough and Crystal Palace in the next two Gameweeks.
