Rashford, Mata and Young score heavily as The Scout reviews the Gameweek's top performers in FPL

An emphatic 4-1 win over Fulham promoted the stock of some of Manchester United's differential options in Fantasy Premier League.

Marcus Rashford (£6.8m), owned by 6.9 per cent of FPL managers, led the way with a fine 14-point haul.

Juan Mata (£6.2m) and Ashley Young (£5.7m) also made Gameweek 16's Dream Team cut. The duo are found in only 1.1 and 1.3 per cent of squads respectively.

They line up in a 4-5-1 formation that produced 146 points - the second-highest Dream Team total of the season.

Gameweek 16 FPL DreamTeam
Ben Foster (WAT) £4.5m; 9pts

Saving Gylfi Sigurdsson's (£7.5m) penalty in Monday night's 2-2 thriller at Everton helped the Watford stopper to his joint-best score of the season.

David Luiz (CHE) £5.6m; 15pts

The stand-out performer in Chelsea's 2-0 victory over Manchester City. David Luiz produced points from a goal, clean sheet and the maximum bonus award for his first double-digit haul of the campaign.

James Tarkowski (BUR) £4.7m; 14pts

The centre-half scored the decisive goal in Burnley's 1-0 defeat of Brighton & Hove Albion. Tarkowski's ownership has more than halved since Gameweek 7 but he rewarded the 4.1 per cent of managers who have kept the faith.

Ashley Young (MUN) £5.7m; 12pts

An all-action display from the full-back involved a goal, an assist and a bonus point as Man Utd scored four goals in a league fixture for the first time this season.

Andrew Robertson (LIV) £6.4m; 11pts

The Liverpool left-back's consistency has brought in 95 points, behind only Marcos Alonso (£7.0m) in the defenders' table, but this is only his second Dream Team appearance. Robertson kept a clean sheet and provided an assist as the Reds won 4-0 at AFC Bournemouth.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £13.0m; 21pts

The Egyptian made it five goals and an assist from his last five Gameweeks with a hat-trick at Vitality Stadium. His 21-point return took Salah to the top of the FPL player standings for the first time this season.

Son Heung-min (TOT) £8.5m; 14pts

Since returning from injury in Gameweek 11, the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder has been outstanding, accumulating 40 points. He scored and provided an assist in a 2-0 win at Leicester City to earn maximum bonus points.

Juan Mata (MUN) £6.2m; 13pts

Used sparingly by Jose Mourinho, the Spaniard marked his seventh start of the season with a goal, an assist and three bonus points.

Felipe Anderson (WHU) £7.3m; 12pts

His third double-digit score in six Gameweeks came courtesy of a goal and an assist in West Ham United's 3-2 victory over Crystal Palace.

Lucas Torreira (ARS) £5.1m; 11pts

The talismanic midfielder made it two goals in three Gameweeks with an acrobatic winner for Arsenal against Huddersfield Town. That form, and his budget-friendly price, have made him Gameweek 17's most-bought player.

Marcus Rashford (MUN) £6.8m; 14pts

The United forward scored one goal and set up another two against Fulham. Rashford has featured in every match since Gameweek 7, scoring three times and providing five assists.
