The on-loan Newcastle United midfielder makes an impression as The Scout reviews the Gameweek’s top performers

With two fine strikes for Newcastle United in Gameweek 30 Kenedy (£4.7m) announced his potential for Fantasy Premier League points.

The Brazilian's brace against Southampton set the Magpies up for a crucial 3-0 win and put FPL managers on alert for a budget midfielder who can free up funds for the run-in.

Along with David Silva (£8.0m) Kenedy was the game's joint-top points scorer, earning himself a debut appearance in the Dream Team line-up.

The Magpies are without a fixture in Gameweek 31, but Kenedy could be a bargain for managers seeking a cheap differential.

Dream Team, GW30
Petr Cech (ARS) £5.3m; 15pts

A Dream Team debutant, Cech’s penalty save in the 3-0 home win over Watford secured his season-high score of 15 points. Arsenal’s clean sheet was their 10th of the campaign but the first in 12 Gameweeks.

Shkodran Mustafi (ARS) £5.4m; 12pts

The Arsenal defender struck his third goal of 2017/18 and also returned a clean sheet and single bonus point against Watford. A 12-point return was Mustafi’s second double-digit tally of the season, earning him a second Dream Team call-up.

Leighton Baines (EVE) £5.6m; 12pts

Back on the teamsheet for the first time since Gameweek 13, the fit-again left-back delivered an assist and maximum bonus points in the 2-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion to play his way into managers’ plans. Everton are one of just eight teams in action in Gameweek 31.

Serge Aurier (TOT) £5.9m; 13pts

Handed a third successive Gameweek start, the right-back recorded a goal and an assist in Tottenham Hotspur's win at AFC Bournemouth. Aurier averages 4.9 points per match (ppm), a statistic bettered only by the 5.1 ppm of Marcos Alonso (£7.2m) and the 5.2ppm of team-mate Ben Davies (£5.9m) among FPL defenders.

Son Heung-min (TOT) £8.2m; 15pts

The top-scoring player in the ICT Index for the Gameweek, Son scored 144.0 for Threat. This came from firing six shots on goal, all from inside the penalty area, on his way to a brace and 15 points. Only Mohamed Salah (£10.6m) has more Dream Team appearances this season than Son's 10.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan (ARS) £7.7m; 13pts

Arsenal’s January signing produced a goal, an assist and two bonus points in the win over Watford. Mkhitaryan has averaged 5.2 points per start for Arsenal and has been involved in 56% of their goals when selected.

Kenedy (NEW) £4.7m; 16pts

The joint-top scoring player for Gameweek 30, the Magpies’ on-loan winger supplied his 44,000 owners with two goals and maximum bonus points in the 3-0 home win over Southampton.

Jonjo Shelvey (NEW) £5.2m; 11pts

Along with Kenedy, the Newcastle midfielder also claimed a first Dream Team appearance of the season. Shelvey’s pair of assists against Southampton produced his first set of attacking points since Gameweek 7.

David Silva (MCI) £8.0m; 16pts

The Manchester City playmaker’s pair of goals and maximum bonus haul at Stoke City earned 16 points and a fourth Dream Team appearance. Three of Silva’s four double-digit scores and six of his eight goals have arrived in away matches.

Chris Wood (BUR) £6.2m; 15pts

Burnley’s target man has made a big impact as a substitute in each of the last two Gameweeks. After emerging from the bench to get the winner against Everton, Wood repeated the feat at West Ham United, serving up two goals and an assist in just 29 minutes.

Marcus Rashford (MUN) £7.3m; 12pts

Handed a first start since Gameweek 20, the striker scored twice in a 2-1 home win over Liverpool to earn 12 points, his biggest score, and a first Dream Team appearance of the campaign.
