LOVS Fantasy Football: GW31

It was a week with different players standing out than the norm.

So player of the week this time is Marko Arnautovic of West Ham United who starred in their impressive win against fellow relegation candidates Southampton. If West Ham continue with good form the midfielder should be a good investment for the run in.

He was not though a part of any of the teams who I will be looking at today.

The best score of the week was 125.

Alexis Sanchez was a huge part of this with his triple captain haul of 42 points. His goal and an assist for Manchester United could be only the beginning and we all know how valuable he can be in Fantasy when he is on a run. United do have a double game week, I think, and Sanchez could be a great player to have in for this.

Other real stand outs in this team were Kasper Schmeichel who saved a penalty and the other Leicester City defenders also did well in the team courtesy of a clean sheet. Leicester have had a slightly low profile good season and their star players are worth a punt as they chase a return to European football.

David Silva and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also looked good. Silva will no doubt continue to impress for Manchester City as they chase more records. Aubameyang is one worth looking at too. Arsenal are turning their season around and Aubameyang is not eligible for the Europa League so will play a key role in the Premier League whereas Alexandre Lacazette may be rested as Arsenal look to gained Champions League football next season by winning Europe’s second competition.

The best LOVS league team was Game Escrow with 78 points.

Different players from above who contributed were Mohammed Salah who obviously scored again. Despite Liverpool’s lack of a double game week surely he cannot be let go. There was also Andrew Robertson who gained good points despite Liverpool conceding.

Chris Smalling and Aaron Cresswell also performed well. United defenders will not do well next week against City, but will likely do well in the run in. West Ham players would be a risk, but they have a lot to fight for so may well perform well.

The other end of the spectrum was Wanyamas in Pyjamas with 22 points.

This team contains players who need to be shifted as they are not playing. Sergio Aguero is currently injured and Swansea City’s Jordan Ayew is suspended at the moment though will no doubt return to the team. Aaron Mooy is still in the team despite Huddersfield struggling and the same applies to Southampton’s Ryan Bertrand.
