Sortingoffensivewig has now opened a 35 point gap at the top of the league. Sporting’s margin would have been greater had they not inexplicably left David Silva on the bench. Silva managed 11 points this week. This would have amounted to 10 more points for Sporting if he’d have been picked ahead of one of their 1 point players. A total of 91 points would have bagged the manager of the week award. Not to be – this went instead to our new 2nd placed team, Crazylegs. Crazylegs’ high score this week relied heavily on the holy Arsenal trinity of Ozil, Ramsey and Giroud, and picking Luis Suarez as captain.

It’s probably a two horse race for the October award. Sporting hold a 13 point lead over Mid Season Blip. Others could close the gap, as the top eight in the October table are all in good form, and all notched 60+ scores this week, but it would take a spectacular collapse by the top two for a surprise winner….

Eden Hazard top scored for the week. His first meaningful contribution of the season comes (probably) just after everyone had booted him out of their team. It’s three goals in two now for Hazard, and five bonus points out of the last six on offer. His price, having dropped to 9 million from 9.5, will probably start shooting back up again.

There was much drooling over the Wilshere Arsenal team goal scored on Saturday against Norwich. This has probably been forgotten about now following Pajtim Kasami’s supervolley against Palace on Monday night. Despite starting seven of Fulham’s eight games, and scoring two goals, interest in Kasami as a cheap midfielder hasn’t been that strong. I’d expect that to change now, simply on the back of that goal, just as 23,000 of us bought into Andros Townsend based on his England performances. To some avail – he scored 10 points for the week.

Player of the week – Eden Hazard – 18 points. His season looks to have started.

Bargain of the week – Bryan Ruiz – 14 points. Assisted three of Fulham’s four goals.

Donkey of the week – Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa – -3 points. The second Newcastle player to see red this season.

Goal of the week – Pajtim Kasami. Goal of the season over with.
