Aaron Ramsey was the man to have this week as his hat-trick dragged in a 20 point haul. He was then closely followed by Mohammed Salah whose brace gained him 15 points. Triple captaining Salah was the move which helped the FPL’s highest scoring team to top spot.
There were also some high scoring players from less fashionable teams. Watford’s Abdoulaye Doucoure picked up double figures along with Brighton and Hove Albion’s Pascal GroB. If Watford get back on track there could be a few points making options, Richarlison anyone? GroB started the season strongly and a good week may indicate another upturn in form.
There were also some good defensive options with David de Gea keeping a clean sheet. West Bromwich Albion’s Ahmed Hegazi and Danilo of Manchester City also had good weeks. All three of those are defences with potential. Hegazi and Danilo are players with the potential to pick up good attacking points as well, with de Gea tending to make a few saves.
LOVS best team this week was yay.
Nick Pope continues his good point scoring in goal. Burnley’s defence can be an odd beast, but you can always bet that the keeper will make saves. The only other player of interest not mentioned above is Stoke City’s Xherdan Shaqiri. He is a player with undoubtable talent, but can he consistently perform?
The other end of the spectrum was GUNS ‘N MOSES.
This team was let down all over the pitch. Everton’s trashing at the hands of Arsenal lead to Michael Keane registering minus points. Manchester City’s Kyle Walker, Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero failed to deliver more than the points for turning up, though on another day they would make a tonne between them.
Paul Pogba and Dele Alli were two other players to let the side down, who you may have expected more from. On another week that team would likely do very well, but that’s the nature of the beast.
