Three Stoke City assets fire FPL Manager of the Week Ole Christian Kittelsen to 137 points

Ole Christian Kittelsen showed no hesitation in backing Manchester City and Stoke City assets for their two Gameweek 27 fixtures, with a series of smart transfers proving pivotal to an unbeatable 137-point tally.

Though defensive pair Lee Grant (£4.4m) and Erik Pieters (£4.6m) were already in the squad, Ole swooped for a third Potter, as midfielder Marko Arnautovic (£7.1m) arrived for meetings with Middlesbrough and Manchester City.

The Austrian’s double against Boro, allied with back-to-back clean sheets for Mark Hughes's men, earned Ole’s Stoke contingent a collective total of 43 Fantasy Premier League points over their two matches.

Man City's Leroy Sane (£7.6m) and John Stones (£4.7m) were also signed up, along with Sergio Aguero (£12.8m), who was handed the Triple Captain chip.

Aguero provided 27 points thanks to a goal at Sunderland, while Sane and Stones combined for a further 18 points.

Significantly, Ole also had the foresight to plan ahead for Gameweek 28 when making six transfers.  

Adam Lallana (£7.0m) and Fernando Llorente (£6.4m) were also among the new recruits; Liverpool and Swansea City are two of only eight sides with fixtures this weekend. 

While Lallana warmed the bench for Gameweek 27, Llorente justified a place in Ole’s starting XI by providing 13 points in a 3-2 win over Burnley.

Double-figure hauls from from Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino (£8.4m) and Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane (£11.4m) also helped.

Earning more than 71,000 new owners ahead of Sunday’s encounter with Burnley, Firmino will take on the Clarets on the back of his goal and assist in a 3-1 Anfield victory over Arsenal, providing Ole with 12 points. 

Meanwhile, Kane’s outstanding form continued as he scored twice in a 3-2 win over Everton to return 13 points. The Spurs striker has nine goals in his last four appearances at White Hart Lane.

Norwegian FPL manager Ole claims our latest weekly award, lifting more than 224,000 places to rank 104,647th in the world.

As Manager of the Week, Ole wins a copy of FIFA 17, a Nike Ordem 4 match ball and an FPL mug, all packaged in an FPL rucksack.
