A week in which everything that was meant to happen – didn’t. With the exception of the Arsenal game – and you could even argue against that with Villa conceding three goals, two of which had involvement from the, until now, redundant Mesut Ozil.

Burnley kept another clean sheet sending Tom Heaton to the top of the goalkeepers charts, Newcastle didn’t lose. West Ham beat Liverpool. West Brom and Palace won away at Spurs and Everton respectively, and Diego Costa didn’t score.

And the weekend of surprises is somewhat reflected in the relative lowness of some of the Buckets weekly scores. Only 11 teams managed to get above 40 points. RayCrawfordsCrackers finished as weekly top scorers with 57 points. A total achieved by making the best captain choice of any of their rivals. Which leads us on to the most spectacular result of the weekend – Leicester’s 5-3 defeat of Manchester United. It was Angel Di Maria that notched 22 of RCC’s total. The Argentinian forward was United’s best player by a mile, assisting and scoring (our goal of the week) to put them 3-1 up after an hour. Enough at that point to have probably guaranteed all three bonus points too. But, he had to settle for third place in the bonus table behind the continuously impressive Leonardo Ulloa, whose season start is every bit as impressive as Diego Costa’s – and he’s doing it without picking up daft bookings every week – and ex Fleetwood Town hitman, Jamie Vardy, who as well as scoring, assisted the other four, and of course, bagged all three bonuses. Hilarious.

Player of the week – Jamie Vardy – 21 points. Could end up having the highest weekly score of the season.

Bargain of the week – Victor Wanyama – 9 points. Southampton September’s team of the month.

Donkey of the week – Tyler Blackett – -3 points. Poor lad.

Goal of the week – Angel Di Maria. Swimming in a sea of shit
