The Bonus Points

Pedro (£7.0m) inspired Chelsea to a 3-0 win over AFC Bournemouth, claiming the top Fantasy Premier League Bonus Points System (BPS) score at Stamford Bridge.  

The winger completed 80% of his 41 passes, in addition to a goal and an assist following a deflected shot off Cherries defender Steve Cook (£5.1m).

Pedro's BPS tally of 41 was the highest of any midfielder in Monday's matches and meant he earned three bonus points. 

That edged out team-mate Eden Hazard (£10.4m), who scored 40 in the BPS.

The Belgian claimed a goal from the penalty spot and completed 13 dribbles and 85% of 56 attempted passes.

Hazard lost out on the maximum three bonus points because he was tackled on four occasions.

Gary Cahill (£6.3m) picked up the single bonus point on offer as Chelsea earned a fourth successive clean sheet and their eleventh of the season.

The centre-back completed 96% of his 51 passes and made six recoveries.

The Scout Notes

Pedro's third double-figure tally of the season failed to ignite FPL interest as the Spaniard picked up his fifth yellow card.

He will now serve a one-match suspension in the Gameweek 19 visit of Stoke City to Stamford Bridge. 

Both Diego Costa (£10.7m) and N'Golo Kante (£4.7m) will make returns for that encounter, however.

Costa is already the top transfer target ahead of Friday's 7pm GMT deadline, attracting more than 29,000 new owners.
