Neil Madrid win the gameweek with 72 points, most of which were gained by the five players, three Liverpool, and two Everton, who played twice. Suarez, Enrique, Skrtel, Fellaini and Drenthe earned the league leaders 46 points – well over half of the winning total. No other team employed the Liverpool/Everton double match tactic to the same degree. Romeo’s brought in Suarez, yet employed Van Persie as their captain. None of the Above tried Skrtel as captain, and brought in Henderson to join Jamie Carragher in their squad, but didn’t opt for any Everton players. No-one, I don’t think, had Steven Gerrard.

Also, this week we had the first round proper of the Buckets Cup. Crazylegs were the biggest name to fall, being beaten by fellow title challengers Romeo’s. They will have to beat another top four side, None of the Above, in the quarter finals to progress further. Neil Madrid’s week winning score sees them safely through, and in the battle of the bottom two, Shadwell emerged victorious with an impressive 64 points. Amazing, considering that only eight of their thirteen outfield players actually took to the field this week. Good scores from Vermaelen, Routledge, Young and Suarez saw them through.

And was this the week that City lost the title? An unexpected defeat to Swansea puts them behind United. I think I predicted some time ago that the title would be won and lost on the 30th April when the two teams meet, and that still seems to be the case. Until then, they’re still a safe fantasy bet, but I’d favour Rooney over Aguero, Young over Silva and Evra over Kompany at the present moment.

  • Player of the week – Steven Gerrard. Worth a punt for the run-in? Cheap at 9.8 million. Possibly the cheapest he’s ever been.
  • Bargain of the week – Junior Hoilett. Blackburn to stay up.
  • Donkey of the week – Ricardo Fuller. Ordinarily kicking a Chelsea player would be deemed acceptable, but you don’t get fantasy points for it I’m afraid.

Goal o’t weekend

Hoilett against Wolves. His second goal
