In front of Brighton & Hove Albion’s Double Gameweek 27, managers have flocked to Japan.

During his games with Leeds United and Crystal Palace, Mitoma earned 387,000+ new owners, making him the most purchased player in the Gameweek.

With a goal, an assist, and 13 points against West Ham United last weekend, the winger warmed up for those games.

With all three of his double-figure returns for the season coming in Brighton’s last five games, that performance continued his upward trend in significant Fantasy gains.

After Roberto De Zerbi became the team’s head coach earlier this season, Mitoma’s potential has been fully realised.

The winger has accumulated a team-high 74 points since his first appearance under De Zerbi in Gameweek 14 courtesy to six goals and three assists.

Comparing Mitoma’s output to other players in Fantasy at that time, it performs especially well.

Furthermore, among regular starters from Gameweek 14 onward, his average of 6.7 points per start places him seventh overall.
