How did you do against the Fantasy Premier League experts in Gameweek 17?

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

They scored an excellent 70 points to claim their seventh green arrow in nine Gameweeks.

Kevin De Bruyne (£10.3m) was the star performer, notching an impressive 19 points in Manchester City's 3-0 win at Arsenal.

He scored two goals, supplied an assist and collected the maximum three bonus points for his fifth double-figure haul of the season.

Blades shine

Sheffield United pair John Lundstram (£5.2m) and Dean Henderson (£4.7m) combined for a further 17 points at home against Aston Villa.

Lundstram provided the assist for the Blades' opening goal and also earned two bonus points in the 2-0 win.

His 11-point return took him to the top of the FPL defender standings on 89 points. 

In total, the experts' defence accumulated 26 points in Gameweek 17, with Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.3m) picking up his first clean sheet since Gameweek 7.

Sadio Mane (£12.3m) also registered an assist in Liverpool's victory over AFC Bournemouth.

Vardy's run ends

The experts joined over 2.15million managers in handing Jamie Vardy (£10.1m) the captain's armband at home against Norwich City.

However, they were left frustrated as the Leicester City striker failed to score for the first time in nine matches. He did, however, claim an assist in the 1-1 draw.

There was further disappointment as Tammy Abraham (8.0m) blanked for the second successive Gameweek and Jack Grealish (£6.1m) missed a penalty against Sheffield United.

Nonetheless, the experts secured a narrow win in their FPL Cup first-round tie against Randi Ricca’s NuMBeR OnE FC, triumphing by 70 points to 66.

They will fancy their chances of progressing in the second round, with their opponent, Tortuga, ranked around the 2.5m mark.
