Zlatan is among PL stars to win FPL awards

Fantasy Premier League have announced the winners of the FPL half-time awards (up to GW19) and to be honest, there aren’t many surprises.

In five awards categories, players were handed trophies to reward their contributions for their respective Premier League clubs, and of course the FPL teams across the globe that have counted on them to consistently return high points with every passing game week.

The categories were: Highest FPL points scorer, Fan’s Favourite, Best U21 player, Most saves by a goalkeeper and Biggest price increase.

The highest FPL points scorer so far is obviously Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez, who has been superb for the Gunners this season. The Chile totalled an impressive 136 FPL points between the opening day of the season and GW19.

The Fans’ Favourite is, of course, Manchester United showman Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has settled nicely in the Premier League since his free transfer from PSG in the summer. His early season form led to 41.2% of FPL players selecting him for their teams, regardless of his high price tag.

Dele Alli’s incredible performances for Spurs earned him the Best U21 Player award after racking up 100 points, while Diego Costa’s goal scoring from for Chelsea nabbed him Biggest Price Increase award, as his price rose a staggering £1.2m up to GW19.

All of the award winners are below…

Highest FPL points scorer – Alexis Sanchez (ARS) – 136
