The Scout analyses Saturday's FPL action as Spurs midfielder scores twice against AFC Bournemouth

Two goals and three bonus points against AFC Bournemouth helped Dele Alli (£8.5m) to his highest Fantasy Premier League score of the season.

Alli's 15-point haul in Tottenham Hotspur's 3-2 home win continues his excellent form.

He has four goals and an assist over the last six Gameweeks, and also scored against Olympiacos in the UEFA Champions League in midweek.

Owned by only 2.4 per cent, Alli is already the second most-bought player of Gameweek 15, transferred in by 50,000+ managers.

Son shining 

Two other FPL midfielders starred in the five-goal thriller at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Son Heung-min (£9.8m) recorded two assists to secure his second successive double-digit haul. He has returned 23 points in his two Premier League appearances under new head coach Jose Mourinho.

And Harry Wilson (£6.0m) came off the bench to score both of the visitors' goals and claim 12 points.

Meanwhile, Kevin De Bruyne (£10.2m) scored in back-to-back Gameweeks for the first time this season, netting Manchester City's second goal in a 2-2 draw at Newcastle United.

The Belgian is now only one point behind Sadio Mane (£12.2m) at the top of the FPL midfield standings thanks to his 10-point return at St James' Park.

Eagle flying 

Wilfried Zaha (£6.6m) also scored for the second match in a row, helping Crystal Palace to a 2-0 win at Burnley.

The winger's improving form comes at the right time for Fantasy managers.

Six of the Eagles' next seven matches score only two in the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR).

Ings stands out up front 

It has been a quiet weekend for forwards so far.

Danny Ings (£6.1m) was the only striker to produce more than two FPL points on Saturday.

Named as one of The Scout's Ones to watch for Gameweek 14 and also picked in the Scout Selection, he scored in Southampton's 2-1 win over Watford.

Ings has found the net in six of the last eight Gameweeks and has the schedule to keep scoring.

Three of the Saints' next four fixtures score only two in the FDR.

Deadly defenders 

In defence, Liverpool pair Virgil van Dijk (£6.4m) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.2m) also delivered big returns in their 2-1 win over Brighton and Hove Albion.

Van Dijk scored twice, with Alexander-Arnold providing both assists.

The Dutchman's 17 points was the highest total over Saturday's six matches.

Elsewhere at the back, Aaron Cresswell (£4.7m) bagged a double-digit haul after scoring the decisive goal in West Ham United's 1-0 win at Chelsea.

And the 10-point return from David Martin (£4.0m) at Stamford Bridge will also have attracted Fantasy managers' attention.

No FPL goalkeeper is cheaper than Martin, who kept a clean sheet in his first ever Premier League start.
