Inter Ealing are this weeks top scorers with 76 points. Employing Dimitar Berbatov as captain was a risk worth taking against Arsenal. He bagged two goals, an assist and top bonus marks – times all that by 2 and you get 32 points. That’s more than some teams this week – including Rip Roaring Reds who are dropping like a stone.

Another week in which the best defences in the land couldn’t stop the opposition from scoring. City, United, Everton and Arsenal all had to come from behind. West Ham and Stoke now lead the way in the clean sheet league. Jussi Jaaskelainen and Asmir Begovic lead the goalkeeping charts, closely followed by John Ruddy. Norwich kept their 4th clean sheet at the weekend. That’s one more than last season already.

There was a clutch of players scoring doubles this week. Berbatov was one. Olivier Giroud scored two in the same game for Arsenal. Andreas Weimann put Villa 2-0 up against United, only for Javier Hernandez to score his brace to win the game for them. That’s Hernandez’s 3rd and 4th Premier League goals of the season. He’s outscoring Wayne Rooney, who at this rate could find himself on the bench and relegated to third choice striker. Rooney’s not a popular choice at the moment. His value has dropped, has an own goal and a penalty miss to his name, and currently appears in less squads than Pavel Pogrebnyak.

City’s comeback against Spurs was thanks to Edin Dzeko. Dzeko has appeared in 9 of City’s 11 games, but only completed 90 minutes twice. Yet, he has 6 goals and an assist. His points to minutes played ratio must be the best in the league. He doesn’t appear in many squads though.    A supersub in form is an FPL headache. You know if you pick him he either won’t play, or worse still come on for a minute and score you one measly point while your first choice substitute scores a hat trick.

This season’s Buckets League is bubbling along quite nicely. We’ve seen Rip Roaring Reds drop from first with a 30 point cushion down to 9th and 40 points off the top in a matter of weeks. That’s how quickly things can change. A lot of teams still have a chance. Les Canaris had an average week. There were some big movers just below. The mid table is tightly packed. And Shadwell Town are on holiday.

 

  • Player of the week – Dimitar Berbatov – 16 points. Moves into the top 10 scoring strikers.
  • Bargain of the week – Andreas Weimann – 12 points. One of four players to score a double this week.
  • Donkey of the week – Ron Vlaar – -1 points. Unlucky, but the own goal turned the game against United.
