It’s become clear after only 4 games that this Premiership season probably will, as many people thought, be the tightest for a while. All of last years top 4 have suffered defeat, and only Liverpool and Everton remain unbeaten. The goals still aren’t exactly flying in – only 20 this week – still below average – and seven teams kept clean sheets.

And no one team is making a charge in the Buckets. Two thirds of the teams in the league scored above average this week, posting somewhere between 47 and 68 points. Rip Roaring Reds hit 68 points, in a week where the substitute bench was key. There were a lot of last minute casualties and frustrating squad rotations – probably with European ties in mind.

Rip Roaring Reds always have a good week when Arsenal have a good week, and Olivier Giroud and Aaron Ramsey scored more than half of their points. The Arsenal striker has scored in every game and leads the way in the bonus, form and overall points charts. He’s great for fantasy league purposes. He’s Arsenal’s only out and out striker and has to start every week. Aaron Ramsey is Arsenal’s star man at the moment. Ramsey has bettered his goals total from last season already – and was this weeks best bargain buy.

Gylfi Sigurdsson also scored twice, and by virtue of his one clean sheet point, bagged the highest score of the week. It’s unlikely he’d have started had Erik Lamela’s brother not been kidnapped by gunmen in Buenos Aires. So for those of you (anybody?) with Sigurdsson in your team, you’ve some crazy carjackers to thank for that unexpected 16 points.

Player of the week – Gylfi Sigurdsson – 16 points. Not the most picked of Spurs’ midfielders, but at the moment, the most prolific.

Bargain of the week – Aaron Ramsey – 15 points. Vastly improved.

Donkey of the week – Kagisho Dikgacoi – -2 points. Should be diving bastard Ashley Young, but unfortunately rules dictate it’s the poor sod who was wrongly sent off for not fouling him.

Goal of the week – Aaron Ramsey. His first goal against Sunderland.
