Leicester City striker extends scoring streak to remain top target up front ahead of Sunderland encounter

The Bonus Points

Assisting both goals in Leicester City’s 2-0 home win over Stoke City, defender Danny Simpson (£4.8m) collected the maximum Fantasy Premier League bonus points.

Scoring 45 in the Bonus Points System (BPS), the right-back also contributed six clearances, blocks and interceptions (CBI) and three recoveries, helping the Foxes to their first clean sheet since Gameweek 20.

Wilfred Ndidi (£4.9m) received two bonus points, with 33 in the BPS. 

Having opened the scoring with a stunning strike, Ndidi also contributed seven CBI and 10 recoveries, in addition to completing 83% of 55 attempted passes.

Jamie Vardy (£10.0m) earned a single bonus point after tallying 32 in the BPS.

The striker scored Leicester's second goal and also supplied two key passes. 

The Scout Notes

Acquired by more than 197,000 FPL managers ahead of Gameweek 30, Vardy’s strike took his tally to four goals and two assists in four starts.

He is again the top transfer target among forwards ahead of Tuesday’s 6.45pm BST deadline. He has gained another 50,000+ investors as Craig Shakespeare’s side seek a fifth successive victory at home to Sunderland.

Ndidi has also dramatically improved his output of late, with a goal and two assists over the last four outings.

Demarai Gray (£4.8m) impressed on the left wing, firing four shots on goal after Marc Albrighton (£4.9m) missed out through illness. With a quick turnaround in fixtures, Gray could retain his starting berth for Tuesday night’s encounter with the Black Cats.

For the Potters, Peter Crouch (£4.7m) was named on the bench for the third successive Gameweek as Saido Berahino (£6.0m) was partnered by Jon Walters (£5.4m) in a 4-4-2 formation.

But with Walters limping off early in the second period and Crouch doubtful due to a knee problem, Mark Hughes could be forced to opt for a lone-forward formation against Burnley in midweek.
