Team of the week, and scoring way more than anyone else are Shoelace Untied with 83 points. They were the only team to have player of the week and goal of the week winner Eden Hazard as their captain. Half of that 83 point total is attributed to Hazard, who has moved to the top of the midfielder scoring charts, and second overall behind Luis Saurez. It’s Hazard’s 7th double figure score for the season and his Newcastle-destroying hat trick takes him into double figures for goals too. And as the title race takes another twist – in as much as it’s now arguably Chelsea’s to lose – maybe the emphasis has also switched in fantasy terms. City drew a blank for the second successive game. And in the 12 remaining gameweeks, Chelsea play 9 teams battling relegation. Shoelace also receive their bye into the first round proper of the Buckets Cup.

I’m certain City will get back on the goalscoring trail pretty quickly, but look at Liverpool. Only five goals behind City’s total after putting five past Arsenal. Luis Suarez’s goal drought need not be a concern as Danny Sturridge scores in every game, and there’s plenty of input from elsewhere, with Skrtel and Sterling netting two each in the victory. A victory which must have been a major setback for those relying on Arsenal’s defensive strengths. And if the title were to go to goal difference, the five between themselves and Chelsea could be significant.

Elsewhere in Buckets, last year’s champs Shakin’ Stephens have been moving up of late. They bagged the second highest score of the week with 74 points, and now occupy fifth spot. Romeo’s still lead the way, and stretched a little further after posting slightly higher than the chasing pack. They’re still favourites, but should be aware of Stephens’ progress. Of the other top 12, most maintained their positions, and they’re the teams looking the most likely to play for the four league prizes.

Player of the week – Eden Hazard – 21 points. Including two brilliant goals.

Bargain of the week – Wayne Routledge – 14 points. Swansea rule South Wales.

Donkey of the week – Wes Brown – -3 points. Lasted four minutes and ruined his teams recent good run.

Goal of the week – Eden Hazard. Here’s all three. You choose. Even the penalty’s class.
