Their 4-0 win over Leeds United has made Tottenham Hotspur's front three big targets for managers in Fantasy Premier League.

Harry Kane (£12.2m), Dejan Kulusevski (£6.0m) and Son Heung-min (£10.8m) are all among the seven most-transferred in players in the Gameweek.

To date, Kane is the most sought-after of the trio, earning over 44,0000 new owners after his goal and assist at Elland Road. 

He is the only forward in Fantasy to deliver double-digits over the weekend matches, returning 11 points.

Kane has now produced three of his four double-figure hauls this season in his last seven outings, a clear sign of his improving form under Antonio Conte.

Kulusevski and Son have been brought in by 31,000 and 30,000 new owners respectively after scoring a goal apiece on Saturday lunchtime.

New signing Kulusevski has averaged 5.8 points per start for Spurs, while Son has blanked only twice in his last 11 outings.

Spurs' upcoming schedule also boosts their appeal.

Their home match with Everton in Gameweek 28 scores only two in the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR). Spurs are then among only six sides who are scheduled for a Double Gameweek 29.

Favourable fixtures for Newcastle and Villa

Meanwhile, Newcastle United and Aston Villa also showed improving form ahead of favourable fixture schedules.

Crucially, Newcastle are the only side scheduled to play four matches in the next two Gameweeks, offering managers both a DGW28 and DGW29.

Midfielder Joe Willock (£5.7m) extended his upturn in output by scoring in a 2-0 win at Brentford. He has two goals, an assist and 24 points in his last three appearances.

Fabian Schar (£4.3m) was the Magpies' top weekend performer as they claimed a third clean sheet in five matches.

The centre-back also supplied an assist and was awarded the maximum three bonus, totalling 12 points.

Defenders at the double

Villa defenders Matty Cash (£5.1m) and Tyrone Mings (£5.0m) also produced double-figure returns thanks to their impact at both ends of the pitch.

Cash's opener in a 2-0 win at Brighton & Hove Albion helped him to 14 points, while Mings combined his clean sheet with an assist for 11 points.

Cash has blanked in only one of his last five appearances ahead of a very favourable DGW28 for Steven Gerrard's side.

Each of their matches, against Southampton and Leeds, score only two in the FDR.
