Son is the top-scoring player in reduced Gameweek 8 after scoring his first goals of the season on Saturday. He got a hat-trick and 19 points in a 6-2 win over Leicester City.

He had been sold by more than 1.6million managers since the start of the season after managing only one assist prior to Gameweek 8.
It could prompt a revival for Son at a time when fellow premium midfielder Mohamed Salah (£12.9m) is struggling for form and Kevin De Bruyne (£12.3m) has a blank Gameweek 12 to come.
Son’s team-mate Harry Kane (£11.4m) continues to strengthen his claim for a spot alongside Erling Haaland (£12.0m) in managers’ forward lines.
Kane’s goal and assist helped him to a 10-point return and places him second only to the Norwegian in the overall player standings.
Despite the defeat, Leicester midfielders James Maddison (£7.9m) and Youri Tielemans (£6.3m) were both on the scoresheet ahead of a favourable run of opponents.
According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), each of their next five matches score only two.
Newcastle United’s Alexander Isak (£7.0m) also boasts good form and fixtures.
Isak scored his second goal in three starts in a 1-1 draw with AFC Bournemouth, earning nine points.
Five of Newcastle's next seven matches score only two in the FDR, making Isak, whose goal on Saturday came from the penalty spot, a strong option in the mid-price forward bracket.
Manchester City players now occupy first place in all three outfield positions.
Joao Cancelo (£7.2m), De Bruyne and Haaland delivered a combined 25 points in a 3-0 win at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Their team-mate Bernardo Silva (£7.0m) has also made an impressive start to 2022/23, sitting only six points behind De Bruyne’s 45.
The Portuguese supplied an assist at Molineux and has now blanked only once in his last five appearances.
