Yarmolenko and Arnautovic set attacking tone as The Scout reveals Gameweek's top FPL performers

Midfielders and forwards were the dominant forces in Gameweek 5's Dream Team.

West Ham United's first win of the season, 3-1 at Everton, was a case in point. 

Midfielder Andriy Yarmolenko (£6.8m) tallied 13 points as he scored twice for Manuel Pellegrini's side.

His team-mate Marko Arnautovic (£7.0m) was almost as productive up front.

The Austrian's goal, assist and maximum bonus award brought in 12 points.

The duo take their places in a side that totalled 136 points with an attacking 3-5-2 formation.

GW5 Dream Team
Ederson (MCI) £5.6m; 7pts

The only Dream Team member not to manage a double-digit haul, the Manchester City goalkeeper recorded his second clean sheet of the season, and his first at home, in the 3-0 win over Fulham.

Matt Doherty (WOL) £4.4m; 12pts

The wing-back is the joint-cheapest member of Gameweek 5's high rollers. His first assist of the season was backed up by a clean sheet and maximum bonus as Wolverhampton Wanderers defeated Burnley 1-0.

Shane Duffy (BHA) £4.5m; 12pts

Duffy scored his second Premier League goal of the season in Brighton & Hove Albion's thrilling 2-2 draw at Southampton. The centre-back also provided an assist in a fine attacking display.

Chris Smalling (MUN) £5.8m; 10pts

The Manchester United centre-back's third straight start of the season produced his highest haul, thanks to a goal and two bonus points in the 2-1 win at Watford.

Eden Hazard (CHE) £10.8m; 20pts

Gameweek 5's top scorer, the Chelsea midfielder hit a hat-trick to continue his superb start to the season. Hazard is the only player to have delivered a goal or an assist in all five matches of the campaign.

Ryan Fraser (BOU) £5.7m; 18pts

The Scot was the stand-out performer in AFC Bournemouth's 4-2 win over Leicester City. Fraser scored twice and added an assist on his way to the second-highest total of the Gameweek.

Andriy Yarmolenko (WHU) £6.8m; 13pts

A first Premier League start for the Ukrainian winger produced a bumper haul. Yarmolenko scored West Ham's first two goals at Goodison Park and added two bonus points. 

David Silva (MCI) £8.5m; 11pts

The second Man City man to make the Dream Team, Silva marked his fourth consecutive start with his second goal of the season.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (SOT) £4.4m; 10pts

The other budget bargain in the Dream Team hit a stunning opener in Southampton's draw with Brighton. After two seasons without a Premier League goal, the Denmark international now has two in two matches.

Marko Arnautovic (WHU) £7.0m; 12pts

The Austrian has been in fine form regardless of West Ham's results. His goal in the club's first league win of the season at Everton was his third in four Gameweeks and he has five bonus points from that run as well.

Joshua King (BOU) £6.3m; 11pts

A goal, an assist and two bonus points helped the AFC Bournemouth forward to his first double-digit haul of the campaign. King has been losing FPL ownership since a Gameweek 1 blank, but his form might force a rethink.
