Managers are rushing to bring in Son Heung-min (£11.0m) after he produced his highest haul of 2021/22 Fantasy Premier League on Saturday.

The Tottenham Hotspur star scored three goals and claimed 21 points in a 4-0 win at Aston Villa.

That hat-trick has earned him 49,000+ transfers in, more than any other player in the Gameweek, taking his ownership to 25.8 per cent.

Son's hat-trick goal

Son has climbed into second place in the overall standings, with his third successive double-figure return taking him only 27 points behind Mohamed Salah (£13.2m).

And Spurs’ remaining schedule suggests he will continue to bring in big scores.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), five of their final seven matches score only two.

Double or triple up on Spurs?

Doubling up with Son and Harry Kane (£12.6m) or Dejan Kulusevski (£6.3m) looks a strong tactic for the run-in.

Kane and Kulusevski have blanked only once and twice respectively in Spurs’ last nine matches.

Kane’s three FPL assists against Villa earned him 10 points, his fifth double-figure return in that period.

Kulusevski’s goal and assist mean he has returned 5.9 points per match since arriving in January, the third-best average among midfielders in Fantasy this season. 

Players impress ahead of Doubles

Chelsea and Everton players stepped up their form ahead of both sides’ back-to-back Double Gameweeks 36 and 37.

Mason Mount (£7.5m), Timo Werner (£8.6m) and Marcos Alonso (£5.5m) all delivered double-figure hauls in Chelsea’s 6-0 win at Southampton.

Mount was the star performer at St Mary’s Stadium, scoring twice and supplying an assist to pick up 19 points.

He has climbed into fifth place among midfielders, on 144 points, only three behind his career-high 147 points set last season.

Mount has started 15 of Chelsea's last 17 matches, indicating he is less likely than most to be rotated over their upcoming busy schedule.

Mount's brilliant assist for Alonso

Everton’s Anthony Gordon (£4.6m) continues to be a handy budget pick after a goal and 10 points in a 1-0 home win over Manchester United.

The winger has been a reliable source of returns at Goodison Park recently, recording double-figure scores in three of his last seven matches there.

Everton host both Brentford and Crystal Palace in Double Gameweek 37, giving Gordon the chance to offer more value as they step up their fight to avoid relegation.
