His winning goal against Brighton & Hove Albion helped Phil Foden (£6.2m) to a second successive double-figure haul in Fantasy Premier League.

The Manchester City midfielder earned the maximum three bonus points to pick up 11 points in Wednesday's 1-0 victory.

Foden has now produced both his double-figure hauls this season in the last two Gameweeks.

He returned 14 points against Chelsea in Man City's previous outing, scoring once and supplying an assist in the 3-1 victory at Stamford Bridge.

Boasting an ownership of only 5.9 per cent, Foden now looks a major differential for his side's Double Gameweek 19 home matches against Crystal Palace and Aston Villa

Miserly rearguard

The win over Brighton also extended Man City’s fine run of defensive form.

They have produced six clean sheets in their last eight Gameweeks, conceding only two goals in that period.

Those performances have made their backline big targets for managers in Fantasy.

Indeed, John Stones (£5.0m), Joao Cancelo (£5.8m) and Ruben Dias (£5.8m) are all among the six most-bought defenders ahead of Saturday's 11:00 GMT deadline.

Kane closes in on Son

Elsewhere, Harry Kane (£11.1m) is only one point off the top of the FPL player standings after scoring Tottenham Hotspur's opener at home to Fulham.

His eight-point return in the 1-1 draw has taken the Spurs forward to 132 points for the season, just behind the 133 of his team-mate Son Heung-min (£9.8m).

Spurs v Fulham highlights

Sergio Reguilon (£5.7m) continued his excellent run of all-round displays by providing the assist for the Kane goal.

The left-back has now produced attacking or defensive returns in eight of his 11 starts in his debut FPL campaign.

Meanwhile, Ademola Lookman (£5.0m) and Ivan Cavaleiro (£5.3m) highlighted their cut-price potential for Fulham's Double Gameweek 19 by combining for the equaliser.

Lookman's assist means he has now been involved in 46 per cent of the Cottagers' goals when selected this season.
