Two goals and two assists against Chelsea helped Matheus Pereira (£5.3m) to his season-high Fantasy Premier League haul.

The midfielder also claimed the maximum three bonus points in West Bromwich Albion’s 5-2 win at Stamford Bridge.

That gave Pereira a massive 21 points, his fourth double-figure haul of the season.

West Brom forwards Callum Robinson (£5.2m) and Mbaye Diagne (£6.0m) also impressed. 

Robinson netted twice to claim 11 points, while Diagne’s goal and assist earned him nine points, his highest FPL return.

Jota the top target

Diogo Jota (£6.8m) has emerged as the top target for Gameweek 31 after he delivered his first double-figure return of the season.

The Portuguese scored twice in Liverpool’s 3-0 win at Arsenal to earn 12 points.

More than 128,000 managers have already rushed to Jota ahead of a promising run-in for the Reds.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), only one of their remaining eight matches scores more than three.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.3m) is the most-bought defender in the Gameweek on the back of his 12-point haul at Emirates Stadium.

The right-back has produced 21 points across Liverpool’s last two matches, combining an assist and two clean sheets with six bonus points. 

Benjamin Mendy (£5.9m) continued his improving form in Fantasy with a 15 point-haul against Leicester City.

The Frenchman scored and earned three bonus points in Manchester City's 2-0 win at the King Power Stadium.

Mendy’s potential in Fantasy appears to have been boosted by Pep Guardiola’s rotation policy. 

He has played 90 minutes in each of Man City’s last two matches, totalling 21 points.

More season-highs

Jack Harrison (£5.4m) and Ben Osborn (£4.7m) produced their biggest scores of the campaign in Leeds United’s 2-1 win over Sheffield United.

Harrison was awarded 13 points thanks to his goal and assist, while Osborn picked up 10 points after his consolation strike.
