Stoke City midfielder's goal and assist from the bench help the top GW11 performer to a huge 120 points

Xherdan Shaqiri (£5.9m) helped Veezy Vaya – one of only 7,134 Namibian managers in the game – become the top Fantasy Premier League boss for Gameweek 11.

The Switzerland international scored and then assisted Peter Crouch’s (£4.8m) second-half equaliser in  Stoke City’s 2-2 draw with Leicester City.

It earned Veezy a total of 13 points, despite him leaving Shaqiri on the bench.

With the Bench Boost chip in play, Veezy also gained extra scores from Jonas Lossl (£4.6m and eight points), Stephen Ward (£4.8m and six points) and Demarai Gray (£5.3m and two points).

Add that to a Gameweek-high tally from Mohamed Salah (£9.4m and 15 points) and a double-figure return from Cesar Azpilicueta (£6.7m and 12 points) and Veezy stormed to an unbeaten total of 120.

He wins a copy of FIFA 18, a Nike Ordem V match ball and an FPL mug, all bagged up in an FPL rucksack.
