Their emphatic win over Chelsea earned three AFC Bournemouth players a place in the Fantasy Premier League Dream Team.

Joshua King (£6.3m) took centre stage in the 4-0 victory with a 16-point return, which was Gameweek 24's highest haul.

Team-mates David Brooks (£5.1m) and Artur Boruc (£3.9m) also produced double-digit totals to join him in a 3-4-3 formation that scored 124 points overall.

And for the first time this season, the Dream Team contained no players from Liverpool, Manchester City or Arsenal.

GW24 Dream Team
Artur Boruc (BOU) £3.9m; 10pts

Recalled to the team in Gameweek 23 after more than a season and a half on the sidelines, Boruc made it back-to-back clean sheets and added to his tally with seven saves and two bonus points.

Romain Saiss (WOL) £4.2m; 12pts

The versatile Moroccan scored his second goal in four Gameweek starts as Wolverhampton Wanderers beat West Ham United 3-0 at Molineux.

Victor Lindelof (MUN) £4.9m; 10pts

The centre-back's late equaliser for Manchester United in their 2-2 draw with Burnley earned him maximum bonus points and his first Dream Team appearance of the campaign.

Michael Keane (EVE) £4.9m; 9pts

An outstanding defensive display in Everton's 1-0 win at Huddersfield Town took Keane to 14 bonus points for the season. Only three defenders have managed more.

David Brooks (BOU) £5.1m; 12pts

The midfielder scored one goal and set up another for AFC Bournemouth. He has now produced attacking returns in four of the last seven Gameweeks, with three goals and as many assists.

Joao Moutinho (WOL) £5.1m; 11pts

The Portugal international provided two assists and recorded a double-figure score for the second match running.

James Ward-Prowse (SOT) £5.0m; 10pts

Another Gameweek, another goal for Ward-Prowse. The Southampton midfielder's equaliser in the 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace was his third strike in as many Gameweeks.

Son Heung-min (TOT) £8.6m; 9pts

This week's Dream Team would have cost just £60.1m to assemble, with Son the most expensive pick. He marked his return from the Asian Cup with a goal in Tottenham Hotspur's 2-1 win over Watford.

Joshua King (BOU) £6.3m; 16pts

Two goals, an assist and maximum bonus points helped King to his third double-figure score of the campaign. He has now matched last season's goal tally of eight, with 14 Gameweeks still to come.

Aleksandar Mitrovic (FUL) £6.5m; 13pts

From 2-0 down to 4-2 winners, Fulham's remarkable comeback against Brighton & Hove Albion was fuelled by Mitrovic's brace. The goals also took him into double figures in a Premier League season for the first time.

Fernando Llorente (TOT) £5.6m; 12pts

A season-high 91,469 managers took a punt on Llorente to come good in the continued absence of Harry Kane (£12.4m), and they were rewarded with a goal, an assist and maximum bonus points.
