David Silva netted both of Man City’s goals against Fulham to be awarded 16 points and a spot in the Dream team.

Torres Seng’s The Whites FC shot to the summit with 102 points, while Glenn Press’s Walkabout Jokers captured second place thanks to an impressive 107 points total.
However, the weekly spoils go to Ung Chamroeun — brother of the previous gameweek winner, Ung Chamrong — with his team Roubroum United on 110 points.
