Gameweek 21 of the Premier League season saw an extended round of fixtures in which Manchester City came from behind to win 3-2 at Newcastle and Liverpool maintained their lead at the top with a 4-0 dismantling of Bournemouth.

Let's take a look at the top six scoring players in Gameweek 21, which applies to both our Big Pick 6 Freeroll and Full Season games:

bet365 Fantasy Football Players of the Week:

1) Diogo Jota, Liverpool - 16.3 points
(Cost - 7.4M)

Gameweek 21's highest fantasy points scorer in the Premier League was Liverpool's Portuguese marksman Diogo Jota, who registered two goals and an assist in the Reds' 4-0 hammering of Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium. 

Jota was the provider of Liverpool's opener on the day, teeing up Darwin Nunez to put Jurgen Klopp's men in front as part of a slick team move led by Curtis Jones.

The ex-Wolves forward then proceeded to add to his own goalscoring account with two clinical finishes beyond Neto in the Bournemouth goal to take his personal tally to 11 in all competitions so far this term.

2) Gabriel, Arsenal - 15.3 points
(Cost - 5.8M)

Arsenal centre-back Gabriel had a match to remember in Gameweek 21 against Crystal Palace, with the Brazilian recording a goal and an assist in the Gunners' 5-0 thumping of Roy Hodgson's charges.

Gabriel put Arsenal in front with a towering header in the 11th minute, before another headed effort from a corner was diverted into his own net by Dean Henderson in the Palace goal to double Mikel Arteta's side's lead at the Emirates.

3) Gabriel Martinelli - 11.3 points
(Cost - 8.2M)

Despite beginning the match on the substitutes' bench, Gabriel Martinelli was another star performer in Arsenal's convincing win over Crystal Palace, notching two late goals in injury time.

The Brazilian's first effort saw him finish clinically beyond Dean Henderson after being played through by Eddie Nketiah, with his second goal almost a carbon copy from a Jorginho assist.

4) Darwin Nunez, Liverpool - 10.7 points
(Cost - 8M)

An enigmatic figure in his Premier League career to date, Liverpool's 4-0 win at Bournemouth in Gameweek 21 saw Uruguayan striker Darwin Nunez at his very best, with the ex-Benfica hitman registering a brace as the Reds maintained their lead at the top of the Premier League.

Nunez scored the game's first goal with a delicate finish beyond Neto in goal for Bournemouth from a Diogo Jota assist, before Liverpool's number nine showed a poacher's instinct to volley home from a Joe Gomez cross to make it 4-0 to the away side.

5) Joe Gomez, Liverpool - 9.3 points
(Cost - 5.7M)

Joe Gomez has proved a reliable option for Liverpool at left-back in the absence of Andy Robertson through injury, and the Englishman turned out another composed display in the Reds' 4-0 triumph at Bournemouth.

A member of a resolute defensive rearguard which picked up Liverpool's eighth clean sheet in the Premier League this season, Gomez also contributed with an assist for Darwin Nunez's second goal with a pinpoint cross.

6) Kevin De Bruyne, Manchester City - 9.3 points
(Cost - 10M)

Gameweek 21 marked the triumphant comeback of Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne in the Premier League, with the Belgian returning from five months out injured to come off the bench and register a goal and an assist to inspire his side to a 3-2 win at Newcastle having been 2-1 down.

De Bruyne equalised with a clever drilled strike which slid through the legs of Magpies defender Fabian Schar, before laying on a delicious assist for Norwegian youngster Oscar Bobb to clinch a dramatic win for the Citizens with a sensational individual goal in injury time.

The next round of the bet365 Big Pick 6 Freeroll will commence at 19:30 on 31st January 2024, with the following fixtures to select players from:
