How points are scored in Fantasy Premier League.

Some important things to note:

  • A clean sheet is only awarded if a player plays 60 minutes or more (not including stoppage time). If a player is subbed off with a clean sheet and his team then concedes a goal, his clean sheet will stay intact.
  • If a defender or goalkeeper receives a red card then they will continue to be penalised for goals conceded by their team.
  • An assist is awarded for the player who makes the final pass before the goal is scored, rebounds, own goals, and for earning a penalty or free kick (that is subsequently scored).
