Bundesliga Fantasy Manager Team of the Week: RB Leipzig's Christopher Nkunku tops the Matchday 23 best XI

The creative genius of RB Leipzig's Christopher Nkunku translated into the biggest single player points haul in the Fantasy Team of the Week.

Achraf Hakimi
Club: Borussia Dortmund
Position: Defender
Points: 20

Two assists last week, one on Matchday 23 and a league-leading 10 for Bundesliga defenders in 2019/20: Hakimi is absolutely flying on the right-hand side of Dortmund's 3-4-3 formation. The Real Madrid loanee teed up Erling Haaland's ninth Bundesliga goal of the season and had a hand in few more efforts on goal in the 2-0 win at Werder Bremen to keep BVB hot on the heels of leaders Bayern Munich. Faltering Freiburg are up next...

Christopher Nkunku

Club: RB Leipzig
Position: Midfielder
Points: 37

Nkunku delivered an inspired performance that included FOUR second-half assists as Leipzig went to town on Schalke, cantering to a 5-0 win. The Frenchman could even have added more to his tally - not that becoming the first player in over seven years to provide four assists in a single Bundesliga outing is something to be sniffed at. How Paris Saint-Germain could have done with their former charge's heat-seeking vision in their recent 2-1 defeat to Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League...

Florian Kainz

Club: Cologne
Position: Midfielder
Points: 25

Jhon Cordoba

Club: Cologne
Position: Forward
Points: 25

Until Nkunku turned up, Cologne were in pole position to claim the nominal 'result of the week'. The Billy Goats put five without reply past Hertha Berlin to give the Rhineland club their first win at the Olympic Stadium in over a decade. Florian Kainz and Jhon Cordoba scored two apiece, the former also chipping in with an assist and latter bringing up his eighth and ninth league goals of the campaign but first away from home. If the Karneval festivities 370 miles away in the Cathedral City were wild to start with, you can only imagine the scenes at full-time...
