Dean Henderson and John Lundstram deliver for panel team but Jamie Vardy disappoints as captain

How did you do against the Fantasy Premier League experts in Gameweek 22?

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

But they endured a rather disappointing GW22 with their total of 48 points below the Gameweek average of 57.

Strong start 

The experts got off to a good start with clean sheets for Sheffield United pair John Lundstram (£5.1m) and Dean Henderson (£4.9m) in a 1-0 victory over West Ham United on Friday evening.

And Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) collected his fifth successive clean sheet as Liverpool won 1-0 at Tottenham Hotspur.

Both Sheff Utd and Liverpool now have eight shutouts this season, level with Leicester City as the league's best defence.

Vardy disappointment

The experts joined more than 1.5million managers in selecting Jamie Vardy (£10.0m) as their captain against Southampton.

But he was unable to repeat his previous haul of 20 points in the reverse fixture in Gameweek 10. Vardy managed just a single assist in the 2-1 home loss on Saturday afternoon.

Vice-captain Kevin De Bruyne (£10.7m) collected his 15th and 16th FPL assists of the season in Manchester City’s 6-1 triumph at Aston Villa.

His nine-point return means the Belgian is now the top-scoring player in FPL, his 150 points one ahead of Vardy.

Frustratingly for the experts, their only double-figure return came from Leander Dendoncker (£4.4m), who was second on their bench. The midfielder scored Wolverhampton Wanderers' equaliser in a 1-1 home draw with Newcastle United.

Join to beat them

The team dropped 141,792 places to 622,296 in the overall standings and is now ranked 18,156 out of 49,743 teams in the "Beat the FPL Panel" mini-league.

The league is now the second best in the world, with the top five teams averaging an impressive 1,429.8 points.

Khaled Talaat held on to first place although his lead is down to just eight points. He’s been number one for seven of the last eight Gameweeks and is fifth in the overall standings.

His team, KT-FC®, featured Manchester United duo Marcus Rashford (£9.2m) and Anthony Martial (£7.9m), who combined for three goals and 20 points against Norwich City.

Unfortunately Khaled’s total of 70 points wasn’t enough to see him through to the next round of the cup. He lost by a point to fellow Egyptian Mohamed Elzebidy, who is ranked 782,131 places below him.
