1 Eden Hazard

There is no real surprise here.

The Belgium international is now the fifth most popular player with 40.2% of players selecting the Chelsea man.

The number 10 has scored six in his last five top flight games and with a trip to a struggling Southampton side, we wouldn’t be surprised to see him further that record.

2  Aymeric Laporte

Port of call…

Man City kept three clean sheets in three games throughout September.
Laporte has found himself as a key man for Pep Guardiola’s side this year and appears a constant in the starting XI.

However, City come up again their hardest challenge of the season with a trip to Anfield on Sunday.
So it is perhaps a surprise to see nearly 3500 of you select the French/Spanish (he still doesn’t know!) defender.

3 Bernardo Silva

Silva on the up this year

Silva on the up this year

After a promising, but not electrifying breakthrough season, Silva has come into his own this year.

He is still on the market for £3.6million. Cheap when you consider he has 40 points.

More than Willian, Firminho and Aubemeyang- all of which are considerably more expensive.

Like Laporte, Silva will have a tough game against Liverpool, but at such a good price, it comes as no shock to see his name on this list.

4 James Maddison

Kneasy does it James

After that free-kick last time out, and with an England caps on the horizon, James Maddison is really making a name for himself.

He will only cost you £1.9million and has a higher average than Bernardo Silva, Wilfred Zaha and Dele Alli.

A serious scalp, and it is clear some of you saw the potential with Maddison being the fourth most popular player this week.

5 Ryan Fraser

As fifth top scorer far this season, and being half the price of everyone above him, it isn’t a shock Fraser is still appealing.

Bournemouth are flying and Fraser has been at the heart of it.
Can the form for both player and club continue against Watford on Saturday?

What about those who have drifted away the past week?

1  Benjamin Mendy

The Snapchat and assist king has picked up yet another injury and with his return date unclear, it may be time to drop the French wing-back.

Pep may be ready to put the 24 year-old back in the starting XI. Although it’s clear you lot didn’t think it was worth the risk.

2  Christian Eriksen

No love for Christian

Another injury means the fantasy dream that is Erikson has dropped significantly this week.

The playmaker hasn’t been at the peak of his powers this year, averaging 2.9 so far this season.

A combination of the reasons above mean Erikson’s stock is dropping fast.

3  Pedro

oh no, Pedro…

oh no, Pedro…

Another Chelsea man is dropping fast from your fantasy teams.
The Spanish winger is splitting Premier league game time with Willian, so with no guarantee of a start, Pedro’s dip in popularity should come as no surprise.

4  Antonio Rudiger

At least Alisson is showing some love

A slight surprise this one.

‘Toni’ has had a good enough start to the season, although with a hefty £3.6million price tag, perhaps he hasn’t done enough.

5 Naby Keita

The Liverpool man took a knock in Naples on Wednesday night which could be the main reason for the mass rejection.

That and the fact they have the league leaders coming to Anfield on Sunday…
