The AFC Bournemouth duo of Callum Wilson (£6.3m) and Joshua King (£6.3m) were two of the standout contributors in the Gameweek 8 Dream Team in Fantasy Premier League.

The Cherries pair were joined by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.7m) in a three-main frontline that brought in a combined 42 points. 

And a midfield comprised entirely of Chelsea and Manchester United stars managed a further 50 points.

FPL Dream Team, Gameweek 8
Rui Patricio (WOL) £4.6m; 9pts

The Portuguese goalkeeper is one of two Wolverhampton Wanderers players to make the Dream Team for the second week running. A fourth clean sheet in five matches formed the basis of his nine-point haul.

Matt Doherty (WOL) £4.7m; 15pts

The Gameweek's joint-top scorer, Doherty's 15 points in the 1-0 win at Crystal Palace moved him into second place among FPL defenders.

Davinson Sanchez (TOT) £5.8m; 11pts

His side might have laboured to a 1-0 victory over Cardiff City, but the Tottenham Hotspur centre-back was in fine form in defence and attack. He brought in clean-sheet and assist points for a first double-digit haul of the campaign.

Dejan Lovren (LIV) £4.9m; 9pts

The Croat made his first start of the season in Liverpool's 0-0 draw with Manchester City. A clean sheet and maximum bonus points ensured it was a profitable one.

Eden Hazard (CHE) £11.3m; 14pts

FPL's overall top scorer continued his superb start to the season with a seventh goal and third assist of the campaign as Chelsea defeated Southampton 3-0.

Ross Barkley (CHE) £5.7m; 13pts

The Chelsea midfielder's third start in the league was easily his most productive, thanks to a goal, an assist and two bonus points.

Anthony Martial (MUN) £7.2m; 13pts

The Frenchman was one of the driving forces behind Manchester United's stirring 3-2 comeback against Newcastle United. Martial scored, provided an assist and was awarded maximum bonus.

Juan Mata (MUN) £6.2m; 10pts

The Spaniard was introduced after only 19 minutes against Newcastle and it was his goal that sparked the second-half fightback.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (ARS) £10.7m; 15pts

Like Mata, the Arsenal forward had to make his mark from the bench. The Gabon international claimed his season-high haul of 15 points and has four goals and two assists from his last five Gameweek appearances.

Callum Wilson (BOU) £6.3m; 14pts

The AFC Bournemouth star scored and provided two assists in the 4-0 win at Watford. It was a performance that earned him two bonus points and his first double-digit haul of the campaign.

Joshua King (BOU) £6.3m; 13pts

Wilson's team-mate netted twice and brought in maximum bonus points. The Norwegian now has four goals from the first eight Gameweeks, having managed eight strikes in total last season.
