A bumper weekend in which there were clearly a load of hungover/still pissed goalkeepers letting in virtually every blockbusting shot on target. Sometimes it’s impossible to pick a goal of the gameweek. Then there are gameweeks like this where there are too many contenders to choose from. Given the amount of goals the scores were quite widespread across the league. Neil Madrid topped the charts with 80 points, but title rivals Uriah’s, PSG and Gaalacticos all struggled to reach the average and dropped off the pace slightly.

Harry Kane’s stock continues to rise, and it was the Buckets teams with the Spurs hitman leading their line that scored the highest, although no-one had opted for him as their captain choice. Spurs ordinarily get nothing from their games with Chelsea, and clearly managers were expecting the same ahead of this game. Kane is still available for less than £5.5 million, yet it’s inevitable following this display that he’ll start to appear in more FPL teams. His transition from a player that seemed destined to be eternally sent out on loan to the form marksman in the Premier League is pretty astonishing.

Also among the goals in what should be their last match before buggering off to the African Cup of Nations were Yaya, Diafra Sakho and Sadio Mane. In Yaya and Mane’s case in paricular – just as they were coming into goalscoring form. Anyone looking for a Sakho replacement should probably look no further than the aforementioned Kane.

Transfer window wildcards are active and we’ve a 9 day wait till the next round of matches – in which new players may arrive in the league, African and Asian internationals will depart – and Sergio Aguero might be back.

 

Player of the week – Harry Kane – 18 points. Scored two goal of the week contenders himself.

Bargain of the week – Jack Colback – 13 points. Another goal of the week contender.

Donkey of the week – Antolin Alcaraz – -2 points. Possibly the only player to have won this award in every season I’ve administered this league.

Goal of the week – David Nugent. A scissored volley with swerve. Not a bad move to set it up either.
