Congratulations to the Biscuitmen, who with 74 points, are this weeks highest scoring team. Their total was achieved without an Aguero, Costa or Sanchez in sight, but did contain the player of the week. Christian Eriksen ended a barren scoring run with a 13 point haul. Biscuitmen are also one of the few (perhaps the only Buckets manager) to have taken a punt on Harry Kane, who scored his second goal in three games, and in his second consecutive start. It’s taken a while for Pochettino to realise his best striker is the one that doesn’t get paid £100,000 a week. Kane, like last weeks addition to the cheapo strikers hall of fame, Ayoze Perez, won’t even set you back £5 million. Yet. Eden Hazard was named as Biscuitmen’s captain and is slowly starting to contribute more to the Chelsea title charge, particularly at home. His 11 points (22 for the BM) was his third consecutive double figure score at Stamford Bridge.

The lack of a Aguero, Costa or Sanchez is probably the reason that Biscuitmen, despite their high score this week, don’t have any chance of pinching the November Manager of the Month award. That looks like it’s a four horse race…

If Shoelace do it they’ll win their second on the trot and be the first to pick up two awards this season.

There was a lot of bench action this week. This is only going to become more of an issue as we head into the packed winter schedule. There was a nasty strain of internationalitis going round following the Premiership’s week off. Many players – many popular players – returned with knocks and strains from their travels. Some played – Di Maria and Fabregas the most notable. But most didn’t make it on to the pitch. Biscuitmen would have scored a lot less had Wilfried Bony not been promoted from their bench. Monthly leaders, Neil Madrid gained an extra eight points from Mile Jedinak and Callum Chambers replacing the crocked Nacer Chadli and Steven Taylor. And overall second place team Upper Bullens saw Paul Dummett step up to replace Leighton Baines and add eight points to their total. Injuries, rotations and suspensions bite hard in December. It goes to show viable fall back options are a must.

 

Player of the week – Christian Eriksen – 13 points. Seems to spring into life once every three or four gameweeks.

Bargain of the week – Dwight Gayle – 12 points. Another cheap striker who could become a popular pick with more starts. He always seems to contribute.

Donkey of the week – Gaston Ramirez – -2 points. Probably the victim of some ridiculous overacting, but it’s all about the (minus) points.

Goal of the week – Olivier Giroud. Marking his comeback.
