An overview of the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) Gameweek so far from the current round of top-flight action.
There were six Premier League matches on Saturday, with a further three more taking place on Sunday. It will see Everton and Spurs host Chelsea and Leicester, before West Ham welcome Arsenal to east London. Then, it’s Man United vs Brentford on Monday night.

Top Scorers: Keita (10), Alisson (9), Dubravka (7), Robertson (6), Matip (6), van Dijk (6)
Surprisingly, Jurgen Klopp placed Mohamed Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold on the bench. Although the former made a one-point appearance, the latter remained unused. For Newcastle, Chris Wood was a substitute and goalkeeper Martin Dubravka pulled off nine saves.
Aston Villa 2-0 Norwich
Watkins (Ings), Ings (Buendia)
Bonus: Watkins (3), Digne (2), Ings (1)
Top Scorers: Watkins (9), Digne (8), Ings (8), Martinez (7), Cash (6), Mings (6)
A surprise appearance from supposedly-injured Lucas Digne. The defeat sees Norwich officially relegated to the Championship. Also, a yellow card for Villa’s Jacob Ramsey.

Tarkowski own goal (Kucka) — Cork (Taylor), Brownhill (Vydra)
Bonus: Brownhill (3), Cork (3), Taylor (1)

No Maxwel Cornet for Burnley. To frustrate FPL managers, Wout Weghorst was substituted just before reaching 60 minutes.

Alexis Mac Allister had a good and bad time from the penalty spot. His first one hit the post but, soon after, made amends with a second attempt. Yellow card for Conor Coady.
