He also has a total of 10 touches in the opposition box and a total15 progressive carries so far. Leicester City has 10 games left to play (all are scheduled) which means 3 DGW in the last 8 gameweeks. These double gameweeks have created special attention to Leicester players.

5. Dejan Kulusevski (Midfielder) – 6.3 Million
Spurs midfielders Heung-min Son and Dejan Kulusevski caught the eye once again as Antonio Conte’s men put five goals past an improved Newcastle United defense.
