NaboombuDirtyYellows finish as team of the week picking up 62 points and moving themselves into second place behind RayCrawfordsCrackers. These two teams are in pole position for the first manager of the month prize. In fairness any of the top half and probably even lower have a chance of the August prize. This week Paris Spinks Germain and Neil Madrid both climbed from bottom ten to top four. Pretty Schitty City went in the opposite direction, dropping 23 places from fifth to second bottom. It’s the early part of the season where everybody is still in touch with everybody else. Don’t be surprised if a team jumps to the top of the table from the middle reaches.

Spurs were undoubtedly the team of the week. Last season, Christian Eriksen and Emmanuel Adebayor’s January to May performances were noteworthy, but other than that, Spurs offered little to compete with City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal players. Early season performances have offered up prospects all over the pitch. Not only are they stopping goals, but their defenders are also scoring and assisting. Eric Dier has come from nowhere to be the early season leader in the overall score charts. Two goals, two clean sheets and five bonus points is almost a perfect start. Danny Rose assisted to boost his total at the weekend, and even Younes Kaboul has notched a bonus and avoided the referee’s book to reach double figures in two games. Most interestingly, it’s the players bought in with the Bale money at the start of last season who could finally be starting to find their feet. Nacer Chadli top scores this week. Etienne Capoue has completed 180 minutes. Most notably, Erik Lamela may be about to prove he was £30 million well spent. He completed 331 first team minutes last season, bagging one assist. At the weekend he completed his first full 90 minutes and assisted two of Spurs’ goals.


Player of the week – Nacer Chadli – 15 points. Two games in and already a quarter of the way to last season’s total.

Bargain of the week – Nathan Dyer – 10 points. Swansea emerging as the best early season mid priced player option.

Donkey of the week – James Chester – -2 points. Hero to zero in one gameweek.

Goal of the week – Mauro Zarate.
