AYMERIC LAPORTE – Manchester City (10 Points)
This feel a little harsh to put Laporte here as he was injured for nearly half the gameweeks in the Premier League, but he has not picked up as many points as players anticipated so far.
Despite Man City holding one of the best defences in Europe, Laporte has only managed to pick up 10 points from the seven appearances he has made in the Premier League and the Champions League.
KIERAN TIERNEY – Arsenal (25 Points)
Tierney has struggled to nail a starting role in the Arsenal set-up, and his seasonal scoring reflects that.
The Scottish full-back has only started four Premier League games this year, managing to claim only 25 points so far, with 18 of those coming from clean sheet bonuses.
EMILE SMITH ROWE – Arsenal (3 Points)
After a very slow start to the season, Emile Smith Rowe has been missing from action since September after suffering a groin injury.
In his four Premier League appearances, he only managed to pick up three points this season. However, he should be making his return from injury in the FA Cup this weekend.
PHILIPPE COUTINHO – Aston Villa (19 Points)
Without a single goal or assist to his name this season, Philippe Countiho has been a major flop for Aston Villa this season.
The former Liverpool and Barcelona star has only managed to pick up 19 points so far this season in 14 Premier League starts.

RAUL JIMENEZ – Wolves (8 Points)
Another player that has been hampered by injuries, Raul Jimenez has only managed to pick up a total of eight points in a Wolves shirt this year.
The Mexican forward did head to the World Cup and he made his first Premier League appearance in almost four months on New Year’s Eve.
DOMINIC CALVERT-LEWIN – Everton (12 Points)
DCL has suffered several injuries this year, but he has played eight times in the Premier League this year and has failed to deliver.
The Everton forward has found the net once this year and has only managed to claim 12 points to date.
MANCHESTER UNITED (134 Points)
This call seems to be a little bit harsh on United, but as they do not feature in the Champions League game mode, their TEAM card will not pick up as many points.
The Red Devils have scored the least amount of points among the six gold TEAM cards, claiming a total of 134 points so far this year.
