Brighton star claimed a goal and an assist against West Ham for his biggest haul of the season

Among the top three recruits for the third time in five Gameweeks, Kaoru Mitoma (£5.4m) rewarded his new Fantasy Premier League owners with his biggest haul of the campaign.

The Japan international scored and provided an assist in Brighton & Hove Albion's 4-0 win over West Ham United, his third double-figure return in five appearances.

Since Gameweek 21, Mitoma has been bought by more than 1.9 million managers, second only to the 2.5m of Bukayo Saka (£8.5m).

And with Brighton playing twice in the next round of matches, he's currently the No 1 transfer target for Gameweek 27 snapped up by over 100,000 managers.

Having blanked in Gameweek 25, Brighton and Brentford players were back in demand.

In addition to the Double in Gameweek 27, both sides also have two matches each in Gameweek 29.

More than 385,000 played their Wildcard to take advantage of the fixture swing, the most since the season resumed.

A combined 1.2m swooped for Ivan Toney (£7.7m) and Ben Mee (£5.1m) ahead of the home meeting with Fulham on Monday.

Encouragingly for those who bought Toney, he scored in the corresponding fixture against the Cottagers in Gameweek 3.

Salah, the most expensive player in Fantasy, also found himself among the top three transfers out as managers redistributed their funds.

He was joined there by Eddie Nketiah (£6.7m) and Riyad Mahrez (£7.7m).

The decision to sell proved a good one for 673,000+ managers as neither player featured in Gameweek 26.
