The Highest-Scoring FPL Team Has Racked Up Some Serious Points

The Highest-Scoring FPL Team Has Racked Up Some Serious Points

The Premier League season is over and the means so too is Fantasy Football until September 23 rolls around.

And looking at the number of points recorded across the campaign, we can now put together a stacked XI of the highest-scoring players.

In goal is Burnley's Nick Pope, who had a stellar season for the Clarets. Selected in 23.1% of teams and costing 5.2 million, the England goalkeeper racked up 170 points after keeping 15 clean sheets.

The backline is heavily made up of Liverpool's title-winning defence. Trent Alexander-Arnold, the fifth-highest scoring player in FPL with 210 points from right-back, is joined by teammates Andy Robertson and Virgil van Dijk, who garnered 181 and 178 points respectively.

Keeping with a more traditional four-man defence, Wolves' Matt Doherty was responsible for 167 points after another solid season.

Moving to midfield and we have the highest-scoring player in the division, none other than Kevin De Bruyne. The Belgian maestro's 13 goals and 20 assists saw him end up on a whopping 251 points - with 48.9% of players having him in their ranks.
