On average, 2.8 goals were scored per game during matchweek 5, delighting fantasy managers, especially those with Chennaiyin FC players in their teams.

Let us find out the top five fantasy scorers from Matchweek 5:

Rafael Crivellaro (Chennaiyin FC) – 14 points

Having converted from the spot in the Marina Machans’ dominating victory against Punjab FC, Crivellaro had also assisted twice in the match, proving himself as the most effective player this week with three goal contributions in a single match. He has been a constant threat for his opposition defenders and displayed one of his finest performances thus, garnering 14 points this matchweek, which is the highest points obtained by any player in this matchweek.

Connor Shields (Chennaiyin FC) – 10 points

In his first-ever season in India, Shields has already proved his worth. With two goals to his name in Chennaiyin FC’s win against Punjab, the Scottish striker has enlisted himself as one of the top-scoring players this season with three goals in five appearances. His brace in matchweek 5, which included a banger from outside the box, has earned him 10 fantasy points, taking the second spot on this list.

Farukh Choudhary (Chennaiyin FC) – 8 points

Another Chennaiyin FC player follows, having been instrumental in their 5-1 win against the ISL debuting team, Punjab FC. Choudhary had assisted Shields for his spectacular second of the match.

Gurpreet Singh Sandhu (Bengaluru FC) – 8 points

The Indian international has been an integral part of Bengaluru FC since 2017. His dedication towards the team is indeed praiseworthy.
