There were mixed Fantasy Premier League fortunes for two goalscorers in Sunday’s contest at Wembley Stadium.

Mohamed Salah (£9.1m) netted for Liverpool but missed out on recognition in the Bonus Points System (BPS).

He dropped to 21 in the BPS having been tackled on eight occasions, more than any other player in the Gameweek.

The Egyptian also attempted fewer than 30 passes, failing to gain BPS for pass completion.

But Dele Alli (£9.3m) did feature among the bonus points for Tottenham Hotspur.

His goal helped him to a total of 40 in the BPS, with other factors at play.

Deployed in a deeper midfield role, Alli completed 83% of 30 passes and won three tackles.

Ozil the top Gunner

Passing was also a factor in Mesut Ozil’s (£9.3m) Gameweek 9 tally.

The playmaker was one of three Arsenal midfielders to get a goal and an assist in the 5-2 win at Everton.

But Ozil picked up three bonus points thanks to a total of 54 in the BPS, surpassing Aaron Ramsey (£7.0m) and Alexis Sanchez (£11.8m) who both scored 38.

Eight key passes were behind the German's success. Two of those passes created big chances, an opportunity where the receiving player is expected to score.

These combined to contribute 14 points in the BPS.
