A second consecutive below par week from our top two has seen a serious amount of gap closing going on from the chasing pack. Not least Pescara, who with this weeks highest total of 79, sit only 11 points off second and 23 points off the top. They also win their bye into the first round proper of the Buckets Cup. They, and our only other 70+ scorers, Who R U, also played themselves into contention for the February Manager of the month award.

There seemed to be a split in the scores this week based on which teams went Chelsea – and who went with City. City hammered five past Newcastle and offered up the weeks highest scoring player. You’re a moron if you shipped David Silva out of your team before the weekend kick off. For City, it was a gameweek reminiscent of many of last season’s mega scores. Also contributing were Samir Nasri with his second consecutive double figure score, Sergio Aguero (obvs) and even Edin Dzeko mustered 11 points which might just keep Wilfried Bony on the bench for another week. Here’s our seasonal mention of basement dwellers, Jordies Giants, who picked Dzeko as captain for week one – a decision that’s finally come good 25 weeks later.

The expected Chelsea rout of Burnley didn’t happen. Hazard and Ivanovic owners gleaned something out of the weekend, but the returning Diego Costa finished with only his appearance points. Those taking a punt on him making an instant high scoring return now have to figure out what to do with him next week when he and the rest of his team mates have a week off to contest the League Cup final.

 

Player of the week – David Silva – 17 points. What was I thinking?

Bargain of the week – Victor Moses – 10 points. Prolonging Villa’s misery.

Donkey of the week – Ron Vlaar – -2 points. See above.

Goal of the week – Philippe Coutinho. Liverpool on the rise.
