Nottingham Forest player one of five midfielders owned by under one per cent to deliver double-figure hauls

Morgan Gibbs-White (£5.5m) was among a host of midfield differentials in Fantasy Premier League to dominate the points scoring on Saturday.

He produced a goal and an assist in Nottingham Forest's 2-2 draw with Brentford, earning his season-high haul of 13 points.

Gibbs-White has recorded all four of his attacking returns for the season, one goal and three assists, at the City Ground. 

Forest host Crystal Palace in Gameweek 16 before the season breaks for the FIFA World Cup. 

As managers have unlimited free transfers after Gameweek 16, Gibbs-White could be a handy value pick for next weekend. 

Gibbs-White was one of seven midfielders to record a double-digit return over the first five matches of Gameweek 15.

Five of them, including Gibbs-White, were owned by under one per cent of managers.

AFC Bournemouth’s Marcus Tavernier (£4.9m), Brighton & Hove Albion’s Adam Lallana (£4.9m), Leeds United’s Crysencio Summerville (£4.4m) and Brentford’s Yoane Wissa (£5.4m) all produced bumper hauls to claim their best scores of the campaign.

Leicester revival continues

Leicester City extended their run of improved defensive displays with a 2-0 win at Everton.

The Foxes have kept five clean sheets in their last seven matches, conceding only three goals in that period.

Indeed, their cut-price No 1, Danny Ward (£4.1m), is the top-scoring goalkeeper in Fantasy from Gameweek 9 onwards, amassing 41 points. 

Furthermore, Leicester full-back Timothy Castagne (£4.7m) is the top-scoring defender in that period, with 47 points. 

Trossard back on top

Leandro Trossard (£7.0m) remains a top target for managers after climbing to fifth in the overall standings.

The Belgian was the third most-bought player in Gameweek 15, earning 856,000+ new owners for Brighton’s meeting with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Trossard rewarded their faith with an assist in the 3-2 win, the third successive match he has produced attacking returns. 

He is the most-bought midfielder in the Gameweek, earning 32,000+ new owners for a home encounter with Aston Villa.

Haaland returns

Trossard is second only to Erling Haaland (£12.1m) for transfers in, the Manchester City forward brought in by 35,000+ after coming off the bench to score the winner at home to Fulham. 

Haaland earned 10 points for the 5.2 million managers who handed him the armband in Gameweek 15.

His return to fitness will make him the overwhelming captaincy favourite for Gameweek 16 as Pep Guardiola's side face Brentford at the Etihad Stadium.
