Providing 17 points apiece as the top-scoring players in Gameweek 36, Southampton’s Fraser Forster (£5.0m) and Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne (£10.4m) were key members of Oystein Pettersen’s triumphant Fantasy Premier League line-up.
Meanwhile, Oystein’s decision to swap De Bruyne in for Man City team-mate Leroy Sane (£7.7m) with his Gameweek 35 Wildcard paid big dividends.
The Belgian moved into fifth place in the FPL midfield standings thanks to a goal, two assists and maximum bonus points from the 5-0 home win over Crystal Palace.
Forster and De Bruyne were among a series of inspired Wildcard decisions as Oystein's line-up amassed an unbeaten 136 points, charging up the rankings to 18,275 – his highest overall position since Gameweek 6.
While Stephens registered eight points, Oystein’s decision to play his Triple Captain chip on Sanchez earned a huge return of 42.
Despite blanking at home to Manchester United in the first of his two fixtures, the Chilean’s goal in the 2-0 win at St Mary’s Stadium ensured that Oystein benefited from Sanchez’s first double-figure score since Gameweek 25.
Elsewhere, Chelsea pair Marcos Alonso (£6.8m) and Diego Costa (£10.5m) combined for 20 points in Monday night’s win over Middlesbrough, while Gabriel Jesus (£8.9m) delivered an assist in Man City’s victory over the Eagles.
In his fourth season as an FPL manager, Oystein still has his Bench Boost chip to play and is on target to surpass his previous highest rank of 33,425 back in 2014/15.
As Manager of the Week, he earns a copy of FIFA 17, a Nike Ordem 4 match ball and an FPL mug, all packaged in a Fantasy Premier League rucksack.
