GW21 Dream Team: Perez delivers in Vardy's absence

Leicester City forward produces second successive double-digit haul as The Scout reviews the Gameweek's top performers

A goal and an assist against Newcastle United earned Ayoze Perez (£6.0m) his second successive double-figure return in Fantasy Premier League.

The Leicester City forward has been a standout performer in the last two Gameweeks while Jamie Vardy (£10.1m) has been sidelined.

Perez has racked up 23 FPL points in that period, having supplied two assists against West Ham United in Gameweek 20.

Yet he remains a largely overlooked option in FPL, sitting in just 4.9 per cent of squads.

Perez takes his place in a Dream Team line-up that scored 136 points.

GW21 Dream Team
Bernd Leno (ARS) £5.0m; 9pts

Arsenal's goalkeeper claimed only his second home clean sheet of the season in the 2-0 win over Manchester United. Leno made four saves to earn two bonus points in Wednesday night's encounter.

Sokratis (ARS) £4.9m; 15pts

The Arsenal centre-back was a big influence at both ends of the pitch against Man Utd. His goal and clean sheet helped him claim the maximum three bonus points and a debut in the Dream Team this season.

Andrew Robertson (LIV) £7.0m; 12pts

An assist and clean sheet against Sheffield United, along with three bonus points, took the Liverpool left-back into joint-second place among FPL defenders. Robertson's total of 98 points is bettered only by the 112 points of his team-mate Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.4m). 

Jack Stephens (SOU) £4.3m; 11pts

The Southampton defender supplied the assist as Danny Ings (£6.7m) struck the only goal of the match against Tottenham Hotspur. Stephens has returned 29 points in the last four Gameweeks.

Ryan Fredericks (WHU) £4.5m; 11pts

West Ham United's right-back enjoyed a successful outing in his first match under David Moyes. Fredericks provided his second assist of the season in a 4-0 home win over AFC Bournemouth and helped his side keep a clean sheet.

Cesar Azpilicueta (CHE) £5.8m; 11pts

The Spaniard scored Chelsea's opener in their 1-1 draw at Brighton & Hove Albion. Azpilicueta further rewarded his 4.8 per cent ownership with three bonus points at the Amex Stadium.

Mark Noble (WHU) £5.0m; 16pts

West Ham's captain thrived in Moyes' first match since returning to the club, netting twice to finish as the top-scoring player of Gameweek 21.

Ayoze Perez (LEI) £6.0m; 13pts

The Spaniard can be a major short-term differential for Leicester. According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), the Foxes' next two home matches score only two. 

Jack Grealish (AVL) £6.4m; 13pts

The playmaker had a decisive impact in Aston Villa's 2-1 win at Burnley. Grealish scored and supplied an assist to climb to seventh in the FPL midfield standings. 

Gabriel Jesus (MCI) £9.5m; 13pts

Manchester City's frontman matched his season-high haul in FPL by scoring twice in a 2-1 win over Everton at the Etihad Stadium. Jesus has started five of the last seven Gameweeks, returning five goals and an assist in that time.

Gerard Deulofeu (WAT) £6.1m; 12pts

His goal and assist made the difference as Watford claimed a 2-1 home win over Wolverhampton Wanderers. Deulofeu has provided 23 points in his five matches under new manager Nigel Pearson.
