Opponents- Newcastle(H), Wolves(A)

Kevin De Bruyne had a quite outing in the first game of the Double Gameweek with just an assist to fetch 6 points despite City winning 5-0. Little did we know it was the calm before the storm. He turned up the heat in the second game against Wolves with a hat trick inside the first 24 minutes. It is to be noted that all the three goals came up from his so called ‘Weaker left foot’. KDB went on to complete his rout with the 4th goal in the 60 minute. It was a massive swing in the KDB vs Salah Captaincy call with Salah returning with just 6 points(vs 60 KDB points) after being rested for a game. It was one of those weeks where our captaincy model also predicted to captain De Bruyne over Mo Salah.

Note- De Bruyne was owned by just 12% managers and Salah was owned by 58% managers during that week.

Fun Fact-

De Bruyne picked up a late yellow card in the 78th minute vs Wolves and also hit the post with a very late chance in the 89th minute. If that didn’t happen De Bruyne would have a got a record equaling 5th goal and the All Time FPL record with 36 FPL points in a Gameweek.

Lampard was an FPL Legend back in the days, scoring 28 points twice and both of the time it was just a single gameweek. Lampard was thrice the highest-scoring FPL player in a single season of FPL and five times the highest-scoring midfielder in a season.

Frank Lampard 28 FPL points(twice) vs Aston Villa, Leeds ~ most fpl points in a gameweek

Lampard first scored 28 points against Derby country in GW30 of the 2007/08 season. 20 points for four goals, three points for an assist, two points for minutes played, and 3 bonus points. Chelsea lost the CS in the 73rd minute and had they kept a CS he would have ended up with 29 points.

10+ years later Lampard managed Derby Country almost leading them to the Premier League before joining Chelsea as a manager. He’s currently managing Everton after being sacked as the Chelsea Manager.

Raheem Sterling 28 points, GW36(DGW), 2021/22 Season

Sterling 28 points FPL

Opponents- Newcastle(H), Wolves(A)

Sterling has always been a great pick in FPL, provided you know when to get him in. He is also capable of getting those double digit hauls and also the binary scores(0 and 1). There is no in between for Raheem Sterling. GW36 in 2021/22 season turned out to a unforgettable one(in the right way) for 2.4% owned FPL managers at that time. 2 goals(16 points) vs Newcastle and 1 goal, 1 assist(12 points) vs Wolves helped Sterling to reach his 50th Double Digit Haul.

Fun Fact-

2,0,2,3- These were last 4 GW scores from GW32-GW35 of Sterling before the monster 28 point haul in GW36. Sterling being typical Sterling got 23 points from the last 9 games before facing Wolves and Newcastle in GW36 where he went on to fetch is career best 28 FPL points.

Mo Salah 28 points, GW26, 2021/22 Season(DGW)

Mo Salah 28 points, GW26, 2021/22 Season(DGW) ~ most fpl points in a gameweek

Mo Salah being himself makes a reappearance in the list with a 28 points haul, this time tho was from a double gameweek with games against Leeds and Norwich at Anfield. Salah scored once against Norwich and then got an assist and a brace in the second game totaling 28 points(10 points vs Norwich and 18 points vs Leeds)

Salah scored two penalties and assisted in the first 35 minutes of the game vs Leeds and the hopes amongst FPL managers that Rooney’s record was going to be broken by Salah but he didn’t score or assist in the second half but Mane scored a late brace to steal a bonus point from Salah as well. Had Salah got all three bonus he would have equaled his record of 29 points from the 2017/18 season.

I get that all of you were expecting Trent Alexander Arnold but we run down the years to another Liverpool Legend, John Arne Riise who scored 2 goals, registered two assists, and kept a clean sheet in a 5-0 win over West Brom on Boxing day in 2004. The only other goal which did not involve Riise was a direct free kick from Gerrard.

“I don’t think I have ever played in a match where we have dominated so much against another Premier League side. I was almost possessed with the thought of scoring a hat-trick.”

He was taken off in the 71 st minute bagging a CS point as well but Sunderland scored in the 90th-minute meaning had he stayed on the pitch for the full 90 minutes he would have lost a point, but who knows the extra 19 minutes could have got him another return or two!

The assist was for a Glen Murray goal and was just an FPL assist and not a PL assist as it was a deflected cross.

Conor Wickham scored the goal for Sunderland that day assisted by Patrick Van Aanholt who both went on to play for Palace later. Sunderland also had John O’Shea, Defoe, Lee Catermole in the starting 11. Palace had Zaha, Glen Murray, Joel Ward, Puncheon, Jediak, Speroni, and McArthur in their starting 11.

The highest-scoring goalkeeper in a single gameweek based on our research should be Gomes who scored 21 points.

Gomes 21 points vs WBA, WHU GW34, 2015/16 Season (DGW)

Gomes 21 points vs WBA, WHU GW34, 2015/16 Season (DGW) ~ most fpl points in a gameweek

Gomes was an FPL legend and saved two penalties in one game against West Brom in GW34 of the 2015/16 season, both of them were taken by Sadio Berahino, Gomes rushed out of the box, and fouled Berahino to give away the first pen but eventually saved it. He also played in the second game which was a 3-1 loss to West Ham. Summing up both the games in the double gameweek, Gomes registered 21 points.

He has previously also saved two penalties in a game while playing for Spurs. It was a 3-1 loss to Sunderland with Sunderland’s Striker Bent who played for Spurs previously scored one penalty but missed two to Gomes. A certain Luka Modric played for Spurs in that game.

Jussi Jaaskelainen(for Bolton Wanderers against Blackburn Rovers) and Brad Friedel(For Blackburn rovers against Sheffield United) both also have previously saved two penalties and kept a CS but we cannot verify how many FPL points they registered in the game. Both the game were just a month from each other in the 2006/07 season. Stekelenburg(For Everton) and Van Der Sar(For Fulham) have also saved two penalties in a game but didn’t keep a clean sheet.
