Tottenham's Christian Eriksen scores their first goal against Hull

Spurs midfielder has 37 FPL points from last two matches at White Hart Lane ahead of visit of Burnley

The Bonus Points

Christian Eriksen (£8.5m) collected the maximum Fantasy Premier League bonus points in Tottenham Hotspur’s 3-0 home win over Hull City

Scoring 61 in the Bonus Points System (BPS), the Dane served up two goals and an assist at White Hart Lane, as well as completing 89% of 66 attempted passes, two of which led to goalscoring chances.

Handed a more advanced role Kyle Walker (£6.1m) picked up two bonus points, with 43 in the BPS, creating five chances and earning an assist for Eriksen’s second goal.

Walker supplemented this with five clearances, blocks and interceptions (CBI) and two successful tackles in Spurs' seventh clean sheet of the season.

Hugo Lloris (£5.5m) got a single bonus point after totalling 36 in the BPS, thanks to five saves and 15 recoveries.

The Scout Notes

Eriksen has produced five goals and two assists in his last four Gameweeks, climbing to fifth in the FPL midfield standings.

Owned by only 11% of FPL managers, he has collected 37 points in his past two appearances at White Hart Lane ahead of a weekend visit from Burnley, offering a clear captaincy alternative to Harry Kane (£11.3m) for Gameweek 17.

Tottenham Hotspur's Danny Rose has a shot against Hull City
Only 5.7% of managers own Danny Rose, who enjoyed an advanced role against Hull City

Walker and Danny Rose (£5.9m) benefitted from the switch to 3-4-3 and as wing-backs supplied an assist apiece.

While Walker is the most popular defender in FPL, owned by 37.3%, Rose sits in only 5.7% of squads and could provide a solid differential.
